Armed White Supremacists Get All Sorts Of Racist In Houston (VIDEO)

Standing defiantly outside of the Houston NAACP building and oozing white power from their pores under the oppressive coastal Texas sun, a group of 20 or so white supremacists spent Sunday demanding the black activism group condemn the Black Lives Matter movement. Their banners read “White Lives Matter.” Their flags are those of treason. Some of these recipients of racial and socioeconomic privilege have even turned up with delusions of armed service, holding militarized weapons to protect themselves amidst the race war they believe is taking place.

This is how white supremacists keep the Sabbath holy.

Their gripe with Black Lives Matter comes from a dark ebb of ignorance and the virus of hypocrisy by which many white people appear to be infected. These protesters, who would take offense to a gross mischaracterization encompassing all white people, wish to see Black Lives Matter strung up a tree for inciting rage, rioting, and violence. These protestors are throwing shade at Black Lives Matter because the deficiency in their thinking has characterized Black Lives Matter as the purveyors of violence in Milwaukee and the killing of Dallas police officers in July.

The violence and the rioting are a group effort and not the efforts of a select few people, according to the armed Houston protesters, but more importantly, it is the responsibility of the NAACP to “parent” Black Lives Matter, as protest organizer Ken Reed expressed to the Houston Chronicle:

“We came out here specifically today to protest against the NAACP and their failure in speaking out against the atrocities that organizations like Black Lives Matter and other pro-black organizations have caused the attack and killing of white police officers, the burning down of cities and things of that nature. If they’re going to be a civil rights organization and defend their people, they also need to hold their people accountable.”

A sign reading “14 words” speaks to what drove these white supremacists to invade the area outside of the Houston NAACP headquarters — “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children” — summoning the ghost of white supremacist David Lane, a member of a white terrorist group called The Order. According to one black counter-protester, the score of armed bleached-skinned men and women who spent Sunday in the predominantly black Third Ward part of Houston, making demands of the NAACP, was the “physical manifestation of white supremacy, white privilege, and racism being protected by this country.”

While on the ground, counter-protesters stood on the other side of Wheeler Avenue, social media took to their respective corners, put on their gloves, and weighed in on the situation in Houston’s Third Ward.

These men and women do not need hoods to get their point across. Modern white supremacists don’t hide their identities, even when they are tromping through neighborhoods where their ideas are strongly unwelcome. But if one were to ask Reed about the white supremacist imagery at Sunday’s protest:

“It has nothing to do with racism on our part. We’re proud to be Southern. It has all to do with heritage, nothing to do with hate.”

It never does, does it?

However, Robert does hail from Lewisville, Texas, having been transplanted from Fort Worth at a young age. Robert is a college student and focuses his studies on philosophical dilemmas involving morality, which he feels makes him very qualified to write about politicians. Reading the Bible turned Robert into an atheist, a combative disposition toward greed turned him into a humanist, and the fact he has not lost a game of Madden football in over a decade means you can call him "Zeus."
