The response to a “resist white supremacy” message on a family farm’s road sign has been bad. People are beginning to see what this is.
We are breaking the conditioning.
It had been a week since the road sign had gone up near the entrance of their 116-acre farm in northern Virginia, and the furious emails, calls and Facebook messages were still pouring in. The responses didn’t surprise the owners of Cox Farms, who had long taken politically charged stands on their land, locally famous for its massive fall festival. In 2015, a Black Lives Matter poster led a local police union to call for a boycott of their hay rides and pumpkin patches, and last year, a pair of signs – “We Love Our Muslim Neighbors” and “Immigrants Make America Great!” – sparked some backlash.
But their latest – “Rise & Resist” – had triggered a particularly angry reaction last week from conservatives who had seen a photo of it online and viewed the slogan as an attack on President Donald Trump. So Aaron Cox-Leow, who runs the operations side of the 46-year-old business in Centreville, Virginia, started thinking of some new language that everyone could agree on.
You can decide if you think “Aaron Cox-Leow” is huwhite to you.
It’s certainly an irregular name for a goy.
But white women can be as evil as the Jews. And she is for sure a dyke.
Almost six months to the day since neo-Nazis and white nationalists marched through Charlottesville, Virginia with torches, Aaron’s sister had an idea.
“Maybe we should change ‘rise and resist’ to ‘resist white supremacy’…,” Lily Cox-Richard texted her. “That way, if someone takes a picture of one of our signs to post and says they are ‘saddened’ or ‘disappointed,’ they will be explicitly revealing themselves as the racist that they are.”
“Yeah,” Aaron responded, “that sounds good.”
On Friday afternoon, down came “Rise & Resist” and up went “Resist White Supremacy.” About an hour later, a message from a woman named Rebecca, whose Facebook profile was an image that read “TEAM USA,” popped up in Cox Farm’s Facebook Messenger inbox: “Whatever your own personal agendas are none us want to see them on display at a place we once enjoyed going to for tradition. It’s TRULY disappointing.”
The vitriol only intensified in the hours that followed, which baffled Aaron. Who, other than a white supremacist, would be offended by a message condemning white supremacy? She also understood, though, that this is America in 2018, a time of such fierce division that even voicing opposition to the ugliest beliefs could be twisted or taken out of context.
Listen, bitch: all white people are offended by it. Because it is a slur used against ALL WHITE PEOPLE.
The clear implication in the term is that if you believe white people have a right to exist – and most white people do believe that, whether they’re willing to say it or not – then you are evil.
At this point, with Bernie Sanders and the entire Democrat Party being accused of being “white supremacists,” it literally just means “white person.”
On Saturday – in a Facebook post that has drawn more than 43,000 reactions and nearly 15,000 shares – she addressed the furor.
“We’re not seeking to alienate folks who have different perspectives on tax reform or infrastructure spending,” Aaron said in her recent Facebook post. “But when it comes to speaking out against systems of oppression and injustice, we see it as our moral responsibility to use our position of privilege and power, along with the tools of our trade and the platforms available to us, to engage visibly and actively in the fight for justice. Our roadside sign messages are one small way we do this.”
Our little roadside signs have power. Most of the time, they let folks know that our hanging baskets are on sale, that…
Her post went viral, spreading rapidly online among both right- and left-leaning groups, who then descended on the farm’s Facebook page to give either one- or five-star reviews that had nothing to do with kettle corn or apple-cider doughnuts.
For Aaron, though, the blowback presented an opportunity. To change people’s minds, even by just a degree or two, required communication that was respectful but honest. And here was a chance to talk to people who disagreed with her – lots of them.
“Resist white supremacy is not an inclusive message,” complained Patty Weston Meizlish, who lives in Louisa, Virginia. “When you single out a group of people you exclude them. This is a sad message.”
Normal people understand.
Every day, as this program intensifies, the plan becomes clearer to the normal person. This is why I love it every time the kook left ups the ante.
“Yes, generally speaking, we are comfortable excluding white supremacists,” responded Aaron, who studied psychology at Smith College in Massachusetts. “If you know some who would be interested in dialoguing with us, please have them contact us!”
Shannon Lee Sibley, from nearby Ashburn, Virginia, contended that she also supported fighting hate groups but wouldn’t spend her money at the farm because it would never post a “Blue Lives matter” sign in support of police.
“You’re right, Shannon – we do not support ‘Blue Lives Matter.’ . . . police lives are already and by default valued in our society,” she wrote. “Black lives are not, so we believe that a declaration that Black Lives Matter is necessary and important.”
“So black supremacy is okay then?” asked Lisa Lewis. “This is not a message of love, this is a message out to divide people even more. I would never ever visit your farm because you try to force your views on your customers. That is WRONG no matter what you say.”
Another one who can see.
“Black Lives Matter” is black supremacy.
“Lisa, when we talk about white supremacy, we’re referring to a systemic racism that is much deeper and more pervasive than any individual or group could be,” Aaron replied. “Black people do not have the institutional power in our society to benefit from so-called ‘black supremacy.’ It just doesn’t work like that.”
On Monday, Aaron wrote a follow-up post, thanking the thousands of people who had offered support (and who vastly outnumbered the critics). She dismissed the idea, though, that what the farm had done – making a statement that could potentially harm its business – was in any way “brave.” She pointed instead to dozens of immigrant “dreamers” who had demonstrated against the threat of deportation at the U.S. Capitol; to Chris Newman, who has written about race and the challenges of farming in Virginia as a black man; to Eric Trammel, who as a sophomore at Centreville High School was kicked out of class when he refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance as a form of protest.
There you go.
She says it’s just about “white supremacy,” which she claims doesn’t just mean “white people,” but then she goes on to support all of this extremist anti-white, anti-American shit.
People get it now.
They get it.
Talking about “racism,” “white supremacy” and “neo-Nazis” is just anti-white hate speech.
This idea that we are not allowed to exist, not even allowed to suggest that maybe we have a right to exist, or we are “driven by virulent hatred for the color of the skin” is no longer sustainable. People are hearing the yid-whistles.
It is the job of the Alt-Right to tap into this rising awareness and magnify it. On the whole, I do not think it is helpful to aggressively associate our movement with historic German symbols at this point. All we need to do is promote a pro-white, pro-America and anti-Jewish message, simplified, in a way that reaches the average American.
We are inches away from hitting critical mass, and getting white people to stand up and say: “I am not ashamed of who I am, and I refuse to be shamed for who I am.”
Keep your eyes on the prize, people.
I want to win this war.
