Trump called himself a Nationalist in a rally.

Definition


: loyalty and devotion to a nation especially : a sense of national consciousness (see consciousness sense 1c) exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups


www.merriam-webster.com...

Yep that sounds exactly like what I am. And I definitely think all elected officials of this country, especially the President, should be looking out for this country first.

Lets see what trump said what he meant by it.



"I’m somebody that loves our country," he added.

Trump cast his use of the term nationalist along the lines of international trade and patriotism, and not as something akin to white nationalism.

He complained that "immensely wealthy" countries, such as Saudi Arabia, do not reimburse the U.S. for military protection, that other nations do not adequately contribute to global alliances like NATO, and that certain countries have put up unfair trade barriers that harm the U.S.

"All I want for our country is to be treated well, to be treated with respect," Trump said. "For many years other countries that are allies of ours, so-called allies, they have not treated our country fairly, so in that sense I am absolutely a nationalist and I’m proud of it."


thehill.com...

Yep, makes sense to me. He should be looking out for the US, and make deals that keep other countries from exploiting us.

So surely the media would have no problem with a President saying he looks out for this country first.

Well if you have been following the so called journalists in the MSM, you know thats not true.

See, to them, nationalist means white nationalist, because they both have the word nationalist in them.

Look at how the article from teh hill i cited above just throws in about charlotteville immediately after the section of trumps comments I quoted.


Trump declared at a Monday night rally in Houston that he identifies as a nationalist and railed against "globalists" who care more about the well-being of the world.

The crowd broke into a "USA" chant in response.

White nationalists helped organize protests in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017.

While the protests were outwardly intended to demonstrate against the removal of confederate statues, those attending the rallies included neo-Nazis and other racist groups, some of whom chanted anti-Semitic and racist statements.


Clever isnt that?

And many outlets have said trump is signalling racist by saying he is a nationalist.


Let's start with what nationalism means. Here's the definition, from Merriam-Webster (emphasis mine): "a sense of national consciousness exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups."

That part in bold is what makes nationalism different than patriotism. While patriotism, like nationalism, shares a pride and belief in one's own country or values, it doesn't include the idea of promoting your values and culture as inherently superior to those of others. (Here's a good breakdown of the differences between patriotism and nationalism.)

Then there the historical context of the word "nationalism." It primarily conjures two close associations: Nazism and white nationalism.

The roots of Adolf Hitler's rise were built around his emphasis on extreme nationalism -- the idea that the only way Germany could be great again was to seize onto the superiority of the German people and drive out those across Europe who refused to acknowledge that superiority.

See, hitler had pride in his country! So if you have pride in yours and want it looked after first, you are a nazi!

And there are more.

www.politico.com...

www.washingtonpost.com... m=.fa566106492a

www.nytimes.com...

You get the picture.

So now wanting to look out for america first is racist. Isnt that telling of what these media people and many of the democrats want? They are ashamed of the US, they dont want it to be exceptional. They want a global society without borders.

Well as long as they can remain in their gated communities and dont have to interact with the people that flood into the country.

Everyday they out the contempt they have for this country and the people that want its interest to come first more and more.

And I think this is a mistake, as most left leaning people I know are basicaally nationalist even if they dont call themselves that. They want the US to succeed, think it is great, and want our politicians to look out for the US and its peoples interests first.

And a quick question to all of these media outlets.

If saying you are nationalist is racist because it shares the word with white nationalists, does that mean saying you are a democratic socialists means you are a nazi because it shares a term with National Socialist?

I am a proud nationalist. If you are a legal citizen of this country; i dont care your race, religion, gender, sexual preference, wealth, etc., you are part of this nation and I include you when I embrace nationalism.

Globalism seeks to consolidate power into the hands of the wealthy few that seek to destroy the middle class and national sovereignty.

So I am unabashedly nationalist, and it means nothing racist at all.

And I am glad to have a President that is.

The Progs have been pulling that stunt for awhile. I proudly call myself a Nationalist! It has nothing to do with the color of a persons skin.

But they think they are slick by putting "White" as a modifier so they can call you a Racist or a Nazi. NPC's are a hoot....

If you like your country, you're a Nazi.
If you don't want open borders, you're a racist.
If you didn't vote for Hillary, you're a sexist.
If you want lower taxes, you're greedy.
If you served in the armed forces, you're a domestic terrorist.
If you are for free speech you're a Nazi sympathizer.
If you want to preserve the 2nd Amendment, you are a "gun nut".
If you are against terrorism, you're an islamophobe.

Nationalism, at least in its "national" sense (unlike racial or religious nationalism), is actually the antidote to racism. It provides a unifying identity absent the racial, religious, or class-based identities of identity politics.

The odd thing is if we are such a Racist country full of Nazi's, why do so many people want to come here?? But yea, this whole social conditioning, twisting young minds to think Nationalism is a bad thing is necessary for Globalism to survive and thrive.

Well, by calling Trump and his supporters all racist... again... The media is only solidifying his support and dragging more to his side who are smart enough to know that half the country is not racist. They're just shooting themselves in the foot again. I figured they'd be out of bullets by now, but they never cease to amaze me.
