The Spoiler: White supremacy harnesses the fear factor

Now a similar tactic is being used to harvest the preference votes of the various extreme right wing parties, using fear and hatred of refugees and Muslims as political weapons.

 “Islamism” has replaced Communism as the fear factor.

The preference deals of the various white supremacists or pro-fascist parties in the May 2019 election, show how strongly they oppose the socially inclusive political parties such as the Greens and the ALP.

Such a cause cannot be found except in Almighty God Himself: to preach the truth, to defend womanhood, to repel humiliation which your Creator has not imposed upon you, to help the oppressed. Anyone who uses his energy for the sake of the vanities of the world is like someone who exchanges gemstones for gravel.”
