White supremacists ARE cliche and tropey (and ignorant, and stupid)









Really?



Why couldn't they sell it buy beer and guns? Or use it for target practice?







That's what white supremacists are... over the top (and cliche, and tropey, and ignorant, and stupid)







A fool and his money......







...and Trump!

And I'm not sure what ever gave you the impression that "white power" as a racist slogan was antiquated or out of use; white supremacists still commonly use slogans from the 1930's. In the original German, sometimes, even.
Just revisiting this to point out that two days ago the president of the United States posted a video on Twitter of his supporters, one of whom yelled "white power" just after the beginning of the video.

Yup. Its from a movie called "Imperium" which is about, err, let me see. What was it again? Oh yes, that's right.... White supremacists!

If the question was whether real white supremacists were using that term I don't understand why you've used a still from a film?

They do regardless, as Checkmite pointed out, but you know, never mind. You were right, I should have spent an extra few seconds and picked a better example.

Congratulations, you win the interwebz

I tried to make light about your innocent mistake and got a snarky roll eyes reply for my trouble. Think about that for me will you

7 men from Washington state were arrested in Oregon after complaints that they were harassing a black family with racial slurs and Nazi salutes. When police arrived, the group were shooting off large, illegal fireworks and began trying to surround the police and goad them into a fight. More police arrived and seven of the men were taken into custody. They were hit with a slew of charges including rioting, harassment, and resisting arrest.
