Peter Cvjetanovic is a twenty-year-old White Nationalist who attends the University of Reno, Nevada. This past weekend he traveled across the country to attend that rally in Charlottesville, Virginia to oppose the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee.
And that’s him, up there, looking evil and angry, even though now he wants you to know he’s not those things, and he’s not a racist:
“I came to this march for the message that white European culture has a right to be here just like every other culture. It is not perfect; there are flaws to it, of course. However I do believe that the replacement of the statue will be the slow replacement of white heritage within the United States and the people who fought and defended and built their homeland. Robert E Lee is a great example of that. He wasn’t a perfect man, but I want to honor and respect what he stood for during his time.”
Um, Peter, you dumb fuck. Please, please, tell me how the white man has struggled in America lo these last two-hundred-plus years. Please, please, tell me how endangered the white race is in America today because I take one look at our government, big business and the military and I see mostly white men in charge. How is the white race in danger?
“I did not expect the photo to be shared as much as it was. I understand the photo has a very negative connotation. But I hope that the people sharing the photo are willing to listen that I’m not the angry racist they see in that photo.”
Well, Peter, if it looks like a racist, and shouts like a racist and carries a torch like a racist ...
“As a white nationalist, I care for all people. We all deserve a future for our children and for our culture. White nationalists aren’t all hateful; we just want to preserve what we have.”
Again, he, as all white nationalist, white supremacist, neo-Nazi, Klan members do, Peter fails to explain how the white race is suffering. And I need to know cuz I’m a white guy and I don’t feel the pain. I don’t see ... and this sickens me to even write this ... my race being harmed or hurt or in danger; I live for diversity and all that it entails. I don’t see danger, I see promise.
Marc Johnson, University of Nevada president, released a statement, without mentioning Cvjetanovic, about the march:
"Racism and white supremacist movements have a corrosive effect on our society. These movements do not represent our values as a university. We denounce any movement that targets individuals due to the color of their skin, their religious beliefs, political beliefs, sexual orientation, ability/disability, or whether they were born in our country."
Now, a petition is circulaing on Change.Org calling for Cvjetanovic's expulsion from the university and I may have an issue with that.
What Peter Cvjetanovic was exercise his right to Free Speech—albeit hateful speech—but he did not, at least that we know of, commit any crimes, or hurt anyone, or participate in the violence.
He has a right to his opinion just like I have a right to mine that he is a racist fuck who does not represent America or the white race ... white race. Sheesh, I can’t with that.
You’re a racist, Peter; you drove 3,000 miles to attend a racist rally with a group of white supremacists and Nazis and Klan members.
You’re a racist and we all know it.
