In response to a tweet about modern Nazis spouting off about racism and doing Nazi salutes, Michael Shermer tweets back:
This is what identity politics leads to. If you identify by color & push for non-white identities, white identities will push back. Stop it. https://t.co/pwnwj7mhYu

You hear that, black Americans? If you push back against racism, it’s your fault when the Nazis come after you. Jews, be quiet unless you want to stir them up again. Stop it, troublemakers!
His timeline is currently full of tweets in which he disingenuously points out over and over again that gosh, things are so much better for black folk now — interracial marriage is allowed, white people say they don’t mind black families living near them, etc., etc., etc. If there is incremental improvement, well, that just means you’ve got nothing to complain about.
What an ass.
