Published

A new survey from the Cato Institute/YouGov reveals that a wide majority of Americans fear speaking openly on their own political and social views, citing the threat of persecution from the cultural left and major corporations.

The poll, released Wednesday, reveals that a whopping 62% of Americans agree that “the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive.

In an even more shocking twist, half of ‘strong’ Joe Biden supporters believe that major corporations should fire anyone who donates to the Donald Trump campaign from their jobs, revealing the left’s cultural authoritarianism is nascent and vicious. Only 36% of ‘strong Donald Trump supporters say the same about employers and Joe Biden donors.

52% of Democrats, 59% of Independents, and 77% of Republicans profess that they hold views they’re afraid to share in public.

Around 32% of all Americans fear voicing their political opinions could stifle their own career trajectory. Reports of self-censorship also come from majorities of Americans of every racial group with the exception of Black Americans.

While the Left’s addiction to silencing its political opponents and critics may be useful in granting it short-term power, it may end up that the silent majority of Americans sick of being bullied may tire of caving to a small minority’s cultural dictates.

Justin Nolan, 25, has gone viral over social media after carrying a sign proclaiming that ‘Racism Does Not Exist’ and a shirt celebrating White History Month at a contentious rally in Columbus, Ohio this past weekend.

Independent journalist Ford Fischer published video of the protest on Saturday.

Nolan spoke to Big League Politics about what he was trying to accomplish with his stand and how he is holding up under the fire of the digital lynch mob.

“I want to get the truth out there. I want to wake people up from their conditioning, the spell that the word “racism” has put them under. That it’s fake, and that they have been lied to and made to hate,” Nolan told Big League Politics.

“I’ve received hundreds of threats, but none of them are very credible. Many have threatened to beat me up or kill me, but they aren’t near me. They’ve tried to fire me, publish my address and phone number, every single trick in the book to harass and put me in fear. By the grace of God, none of it has worked. I’m still here and I’m not backing down,” he added.

At the actual event, Nolan said that the majority of responses to his sign and his shirt were positive, showing that ordinary Americans are growing sick and tired of the media’s racial division strategy. He only received hate from Black Lives Matter (BLM) extremists at the protest.

“I had multiple people actually appreciate my sign and agree, including an old black woman. There were others who were confused but curious, and asked me questions about it. There were a few who told me it was too bold, that it would send the wrong message. But nobody on the right ever threatened me, or got angry, like the BLM crowd on the street did,” Nolan said.

Nolan explained exactly what he meant by his assertion that “racism does not exist,” a notion that is considered heresy in the modern political landscape dominated by cultural marxism.

“Our battle is spiritual, not physical, and that spirit of hate is the same no matter who the target is or why. But words like racism hide that, by pointing people towards the physical, such as skin color, rather than what lies within. As a result, the “anti-racists” end up falling for the same hatred, because they do not see it, and become just as evil as the people they oppose,” he said.

“The Klansmen who burned crosses in people’s yards held the same hate as the BLM rioters burning down buildings hold today. It is the same spirit. But because they are obsessed with the word racism, they think they are justified and righteous, and they are blind to the hate within themselves. Instead of fighting hate, they only breed more,” Nolan continued.

“The people who obsess over the word “racism” end up falling victim to lies. Like a virus, it infects their minds and makes them see racism everywhere, and blame racism for everything. Any sort of disparity or difference, any sort of inconvenience, any sort of problem, is blamed on racism, rather than the real root causes. As a result, nothing ever gets better, because you can’t solve a problem that does not exist. We need to look past this word and focus on the real issues, rather than getting angry about assumptions we are making,” he added.

Nolan also explained that July is white history month, and he believes the month is exceptionally important considering the attacks on U.S. culture that are regularly happening throughout the country.

“I see so many people taking down monuments and statues of American heroes, including George Washington and Ulysses S. Grant. They want to erase Columbus day from the calendar. Columbus Ohio, where I wore that shirt, literally had their Columbus statue torn down! It is clear that many people hate and resent the history of white men, especially the heroes who founded and built America,” he said.

“I wore this shirt because I wanted to counter that narrative, and show appreciation for the Europeans who created Western civilization, the founders of this great nation, and the hard-working people who helped build it up to where we are today. It is not a show of supremacy, nor a way to minimize the history of others, but instead of sign of celebration, appreciation, and love, for a group that is now hated by so many people. Everybody else has a month, and it’s about time we get one too,” Nolan continued.

“We need to stop treating some people like victims and others like unaware oppressors, and realize that we are all Americans and that we all have our own story and struggle,” Nolan concluded.

With millions seemingly paralyzed by fear, patriotic stands taken by courageous individuals like Nolan against the mob are demonstrating to Americans that it is okay to be proud of their heritage and history.
