Distinguishing parody from reality is becoming more difficult by the day. It’s why the clown world meme has caught on so well, I suppose:
The account has been suspended. That doesn’t offer much in the way of determining whether it’s sincere or sardonic, though. She could be a true-believing midwit casualty or she could have been cut for being too subversive. Hard to tell.
As a typical WEIRDO, I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt, so I’ll assume she’s legitimate.
And if she is, she helps explain something I’ve been struggling with for awhile. I’ve had a tough time wrapping my head around the idea that Hindu nationalism is inherently white supremacy, but now it makes sense. Look at the names of the most recent National Spelling Bee champs, for example:
Rishik Gandhasri, Erin Howard, Saketh Sundar, Shruthika Padhy, Sohum Sukhatankar, Abhijay Kodali, Christopher Serrao, and Rojan Raja
Are we sure that’s not a Klan meeting attendee list?
When putting GSS respondents into intelligence buckets based on Wordsum scores, it’s been my practice to label the highest scoring contingent “really smarts”. From now on I better refer to them as “white supremacists”.
There are still some kinks to work out, though. For instance, while 32.8% of Jews are white supremacists based on this classification, only 10.5% of non-Jews are, so at the moment it appears that Hindus and Jews are more likely to be white supremacists than members of other groups, including white gentiles.
Maybe the New York department of education can help clarify things:
This handy checklist will help you to identify white supremacists.

Whew, maybe not. Looks like I still have some work to do.
