Why White Supremacists Support Barack Obama: How do racists, anti-Semites and all-purpose hate-mongers view the possibility of America’s first black president? Not necessarily the way you think they would. (David Peisner, 6/13/08, Esquire)

Erich Gliebe

Who: Chairman, National Alliance

Likes: Third Reich, the movie Rocky

Dislikes: integration, Jewish-controlled media

Career Highlights: Turning white-power record label, Resistance Records, into a million-dollar-a-year business juggernaut; an 8-0 record as a professional boxer under the nickname, “The Aryan Barbarian.”

“Obama might be a better candidate for our cause because he’s racially conscious. One of our big things in the National Alliance is to raise the racial consciousness of our people. Young whites in universities, they’ve been stripped of any kind of racial identity. Obama may be a racist in a positive sense for his people -- that will awaken a lot of the whites, knock some sense into them. They’ll see that non-white Americans are allowed to be proud of who they are, to be racially conscious, to talk about their people or their community without being attacked as being racist. Let’s face it, white people aren’t going to fight for their causes, for their kind with a white president. I don’t think McCain even acknowledges that a white race exists. He’s all about granting amnesty to illegal aliens. The fact he wants to keep us in wars in the Middle East for 100 years, that’s not a good thing. I give Obama credit, he seems to have stuck to his guns as far as pulling the troops out of Iraq. He’s a very intelligent man, an excellent speaker and has charisma. John McCain offers none of that. "

The GOP is a universalist party because religious, while the Democrats are particularist because secular Darwinist.

Jeez, you'll drag Darwin into anything, whether it makes sense or not. What makes Democrats "Darwinist"? Their firm belief in the survival of the fittest? Their Social Darwinist legislation? Come on....

Their tribalism, their eugenics, their worship of Nature....

I just think Aryan Barbarian is an awesome name. But honestly, was Aryan Superman taken? If I was a Neo-Nazi boxer (or wrestler) that's what I'd pick. Maybe he decided it was too obvious.

Darwinists aren't tribal. Neither Democrats nor Darwinists believe in eugenics. (No, supporting abortion isn't the same thing.) Darwinists aren't nature worshippers, as far as I can tell.

Democrats may not be full-throated eugenicists, but they certainly are the party of classification. And they are surely tribal - how else to explain the split in the labor movement between the 'muscular' old-line unions and the government-oriented public service unions?

Also, Democratic politicians caught in major gaffes and scandals almost always survive (from Gerry Studds to Barney Frank to Clinton to Harry Reid to now Obama), whereas Republicans do not. The Dems are protected by tribalism.

Ratbert: That sort of tribalism doesn't have anything to do with Darwinism.

They even nicknamed themselves the Brights.
