I see “white supremacists” and “white nationalists” being tossed around every day but I never see any reporting on how many Americans actually identify as white supremacists or white nationalists.
Why is that? Wouldn’t it be important to know?
I assume it’s because the actual number is too small to be taken seriously so it’s just omitted. The Flat Earth Society probably has more members. “White nationalism” is the political term of choice because it sounds a lot scarier than “an extremely small, poorly organized group of confused losers.”
