We Need To Defeat the White Supremacy Virus

Thom plus logo From the first colonization of North America, guns have been the principle instrument to enforce white supremacy. This racialized violence isn't new. From the Slave Patrols of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries to the reincarnation of the Klan after the movie Birth Of A Nation came out early in the 20th century, to the Turner Diaries novel animating an entire new generation of white racist terrorists, The economic and political undercurrent of American culture and politics has always been one of white supremacy. It is not only rising in America right now, but in Europe and Australia as well.

Until this poisonous thought virus is defeated, it will continue to function like a cancer in our society. We need to make it as much a criminal act to advocate white supremacy as it is to advocate the cause of ISIS and Al Qaeda. Reasonable gun control, like regulating guns the way we do cars, is also an important first step."

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
