Guest What does it mean to be a white how to get rid of ants in the house supremacist – The Aggie

In the past few days we’ve seen a shooting at a synagogue by a white how to get rid of ants in the house man with direct connections to a mosque burning earlier this how to get rid of ants in the house year. We’ve seen a school shooting at university of north carolina, charlotte — by yet another white man. We’ve seen the murder of four sikh family members in how to get rid of ants in the house ohio, in what appears to be a racially and religiously motivated how to get rid of ants in the house attack. Amidst all this terror, amidst the onslaught of white supremacist violence facing marginalized communities how to get rid of ants in the house in the united states, we must each interrogate what white supremacy is and how how to get rid of ants in the house it operates — not just in explosive moments of direct terrorism by white how to get rid of ants in the house men, but in everyday actions.

What connects white supremacy, from the extreme to the casual, is the belief that whiteness is categorically superior. Whiteness is not an ethnicity in that it doesn’t constitute a shared set of symbols or cultural practices. Instead it is a category of racial difference — marking out certain populations as biologically different than others ( contrary to current science). All of us, white or not, risk upholding this ideology by engaging in practices that benefit how to get rid of ants in the house whiteness and shore up its privileges. While not every person can be racist, we can all participate in actions that defend and support how to get rid of ants in the house white supremacy. This is important in our current moment, as so many of us turn to look at these how to get rid of ants in the house egregious acts of violence and ask ourselves, “how did this happen?” here, I’d like to turn to acts of white supremacy on how to get rid of ants in the house our campus, because these larger events emerge from the very normal fabric how to get rid of ants in the house in which we are already embedded.

Two specific instances of white supremacy have situated themselves on how to get rid of ants in the house our campus as “marginalized voices”: the blue lives matter movement (and policing generally) and zionism. This “victimhood” frame is effective only as long as we ignore the how to get rid of ants in the house power relations and history at work. As a scholar who focuses on white supremacist organizing in how to get rid of ants in the house the united states, I’ll do my best to avoid anything too abstract, and use two recent opinion articles from the california aggie how to get rid of ants in the house to highlight how white supremacy and victimhood is functionally a how to get rid of ants in the house part of both movements.

The first example of white supremacy at UC davis is how to get rid of ants in the house the blue lives matter movement and its defendants on campus how to get rid of ants in the house and in the ASUCD senate room. Others, including myself, have already discussed the long history of racism associated with how to get rid of ants in the house the blue lives matter symbol. Columnist nick irvin and former ASUCD senator noah pearl have how to get rid of ants in the house both participated in defending police from critique, and pearl has actively participated in attempting to get a how to get rid of ants in the house resolution passed that uses the thin blue line imagery — the metaphor of a thin blue line between civilization and how to get rid of ants in the house chaos.* the image of “chaos” is a common racial “ dog whistle” for black and brown people attempting to live their lives how to get rid of ants in the house in ways that are dignified and respected. Dog whistles signal race to those in the know, without bringing down direct stigma on those who use them. When people defend the police, you’ll often hear these dog whistles. The black, immigrant, deviant body is and always has been made criminal through how to get rid of ants in the house this reading — the chaos the police are supposed to protect good (read “white”) law-abiding citizens from. The defense of the police levied by irvin and pearl how to get rid of ants in the house make them, at best, complicit in white supremacy. Pearl’s direct association and irvin’s ideological connections with michael gofman, the former ASUCD president and zionist who incited direct death how to get rid of ants in the house and physical harassment of black and brown people on his how to get rid of ants in the house presidential facebook page on jan. 11 by tacitly endorsing rampant anti-blackness and transphobia, demonstrate that this is not simply accidental white supremacy, but part of a pattern of political behavior.

This brings us to another example of white supremacy on how to get rid of ants in the house our campus, which emerges in the form of zionism. Zionism, as a political ideology, advocates for the creation of a settler-colonial ethno-state in israel. Conversely, anti-zionism is a political position that decries those same political how to get rid of ants in the house structures. It is not to be conflated with anti-semitism, which is structural and interpersonal violence against jewish people. Anti-semitism is on the rise across the united states, and we’ve seen a number of incidents in davis in just how to get rid of ants in the house this past year.

In a recent opinion piece, pearl argued that he could not be white supremacist or how to get rid of ants in the house fascist because of his positionality as a jewish american. He argues, with no evidence, that “the majority of jews believe in zionism”; statistics demonstrate this to be false. A 2013 pew research survey of american jews indicates the how to get rid of ants in the house community is quite divided on israel’s place in their jewish identity, and an overwhelming majority said criticism of israel was a how to get rid of ants in the house valid part of being jewish. People like rebecca pierce ( jewish voice for peace organizer and speaker at monday’s anti-zionism week event) strongly condemn zionism as a settler-colonial ideology. There is a long history of contention, pre-dating the creation of the state of israel, between various jewish religious and intellectual leaders on the ethics, necessity and morality of creating such a state. Pearl does a disservice to both religious and intellectual voices how to get rid of ants in the house by erasing their contributions.

But how does zionism tie into white supremacy? Pearl, and other zionists like gofman, fail to address that whiteness affects ashkenazim (jewish people of european descent) and shapes their participation in white supremacist projects. The state of israel is virulently anti-black. Miri regev, a member of the israeli parliament, has called sudanese refugees a “ cancer on the body of israel.” it has sterilized and limited the birth rates of ethiopian how to get rid of ants in the house jews without their consent or knowledge. In just the past few months, there have been uprisings from ethiopian jews protesting the police how to get rid of ants in the house violence they experience at the hands of a jewish state how to get rid of ants in the house that prioritizes people who are closer to the white, idealized citizen of israel. Additionally, far-right supporters of israel — including israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu — have repeatedly aligned themselves with white supremacists. Zionism bridges the distance between white supremacy here and abroad.

Blue lives matter supporters and zionists both use their manufactured how to get rid of ants in the house status as “others” on campus in order to claim that they are ostracized how to get rid of ants in the house and silenced. But the fact is that white supremacy, wherever it is found, must be ostracized. It is our duty to stigmatize it — to rid ourselves, as michel foucault says, of the fascism in ourselves and others. Fighting the white supremacy of white mass shooters demands nothing how to get rid of ants in the house less. Let’s leave the use of “victimhood” to sad little white men and set about creating a how to get rid of ants in the house world in which white supremacy is impossible to imagine. Let’s make a world that’s strong enough to survive the death knells of nationalism, patriarchy and white supremacy.

The writer is a ph.D. Candidate in sociology at UC davis, studying white gay men’s participation in conservative social movements. As a black trans scholar and activist on campus, they primarily work with labor and anti-racist organizations to build community capacity, a strong understand history and an intersectional approach to mutual how to get rid of ants in the house liberation.

*editor’s note: at the jan. 24 senate meeting where SR#8 was discussed, senator noah pearl voted to divide the house on removing how to get rid of ants in the house lines from the resolution and votes yes to remove them. He also voted to divide the house on the final how to get rid of ants in the house vote and abstained during the final vote on the resolution. The official minutes from that senate meeting can be found how to get rid of ants in the house here.

A completely inaccurate, slanderous attack on others voicing their opinion. Your misrepresentation of facts, twisting of truths related to israel, jews and zionists is completely false.

Forced sterilization? Do you actually believe the garbage you are stating or how to get rid of ants in the house just trying to be an alarmist as you have little how to get rid of ants in the house basis to really support your hatred and anger. FYI- anti-zionism is antisemitism, and the vast majority of jews support the state of how to get rid of ants in the house israel. As a democratic people we may disagree about the policies how to get rid of ants in the house and actions at time, but that is not the same as not believing in how to get rid of ants in the house the right to a jewish homeland which has been there how to get rid of ants in the house for thousands of years. Noah pearl is about as far from a white supremacist how to get rid of ants in the house as you are. An american jew with native american and latin lineage who how to get rid of ants in the house has spoken out and fought for the rights of all how to get rid of ants in the house people. You are entitled to your opinion but not to spew how to get rid of ants in the house lies and slander someone of strong moral character like noah how to get rid of ants in the house pearl. The problem with the far-left is that if one does not fully agree with how to get rid of ants in the house everything they say or believe then you are vilified and how to get rid of ants in the house must be a racist etc.It is all black and white to you, no grey. That is not democracy.
