Newly re-elected US president Barack Obama has support from an unlikely quarter: white supremacists who believe this to be the final, cataclysmic event that will push casual racists into becoming active racists and ultimately pave the way for the reinvention of America as a white man’s land.
After the election, Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly lamented that the “white establishment is now the minority” and that “it’s not a traditional America anymore”. Gregory Hood, a prominent white supremacist, posted on multiple far-right websites that “America, your America, is finished. But you don’t have to be. It’s time to fight for what comes next. It’s time to fight for a country of our own.It’s time to stop being Americans. It’s time to start being White Men again.” Similar reactions are common all over the internet.
