Is Steve Bannon really a "white supremacist", or just a white man who doesn't deny and despise his own race the way that white liberals do, because beholden to an ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt?
It's an ideology which began as an overreaction to the evils of Nazism and the Holocaust, before being incorporated into the state's age-old strategy of divide and rule, whereby society is divided into a morally superior, now supposedly unprejudiced, "colour-blind" and xenophilic elite, on the one hand, and the morally inferior, naturally (evolved human nature being what it is) prejudiced, not colour-blind, but xenophobically-inclined masses, on the other, who must submit to the authority of and domination by their "moral superiors".
It is not white supremacism of the extreme Right we have to fear, but the moral supremacism of the extreme Left, which for decades now has been mainstream and dominates the West's political culture.
Society has always been dominated by moral supremacists, of course. It used to be the clergy with their religious ideology; now, in our more secular times, it's their modern heirs and counterparts in academia, politics and the media with their ideology of post-racial multiculturalism.
I elaborate on these ideas in this and appended BLOGS.
