It's almost certainly a point-making hoax intended to illustrate flagrant, runaway black racism in this country. But under the current circumstances, I say, why not? If the American population is going to be made to forcibly splinter and fracture along warring ethnic lines, with each demographic category having its own identity and organizations and armies and whatnot, why should whites be the only group not allowed to participate? How can that be "racist" but it's A-okay for blacks, Hispanics, Asians, homosexuals, transexuals, etc., etc., etc.? Doesn't that suggest that it's whites who have become the persecuted, and eventually enslaved, ethnic group? Especially since demographic trends in America clearly indicate that whites will be a minority in this country by mid-century? Why should we "go gentle into that good night" and be forbidden to "rage, rage, against the dying of the light"?
Looks like somebody at U of I is actually imparting something educational, and it ain't the faculty:
A Facebook page ostensibly created for an audience at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign called “Illini White Students Union” has drawn fire after it characterized the national Black Lives Matter movement as “terrorism.”
Which it most certainly is.
Created Wednesday after a protest sympathetic to Black Lives Matter, the page declared itself “for white students of University of Illinois to be able to form a community and discuss our own issues as well as be able to organize against the terrorism we have been facing from Black Lives Matter [extrem]ists on campus,” as the Daily Illini reported.
The page did not last long in its original incarnation, but was taken down after three hours. It has since been revived here.
Put another way, BLM started this race war; why should their intended victims be denied the right to organize and defend themselves?
The point IWSU was trying to make wasn't difficult to provoke from their assailants (and the university itself that they hold hostage), and was not long in coming:
“It is disturbing and cowardly that someone would create an anonymous and senseless social media page specifically designed to intimidate others, including and especially our students.
How are black student unions and Hispanic student unions and Asian student unions and Muslim student unions, et al not equally as disturbing and cowardly? It's the exact same thing. Is it not racist to allow every other ethnic group to have their own "community" but not white people? And how can a white student union be "intimidating" when #BlackLivesMatter has all the power, as evidenced by the University's own Stockholm-Syndromized response?
When we became aware of the page, we immediately contacted Facebook and requested that it be removed,” Kaler said in an email.
Imagine if the school had done that to any other ethnic group. You can't, because they wouldn't have. Yet this is no less outrageous and, yes, racist than that would have been.
“Facebook has been responsive to our requests, but the page continues to be reposted. We are continuing to work with Facebook to address this matter. We recognize that passions run deep on all sides of many issues, but actions like this are senseless and hurtful and do nothing to foster meaningful dialogue.”
The mere existence of white people standing up for their own interests against those that openly threaten them is "senseless and hurtful"? Clearly U of I defines "meaningful dialogue" as an analogue of brainwashing, as opposed to the free, open, and tolerant exchange of ideas that the term used to mean.
And you know what the only practical solution is to the mere existence of an ethnic group being "senseless and hurtful," don't you? Ask the Jews about that one.
What ever happened to being judged not by the color of our skin but by the content of our characters?
Answer? The racist Left, and specifically Barack Obama.
Kudos for IWSU for keeping that Facebook page up. It's the kind of innovation in the ideological war of which America could use a whole lot more.
