Social Text 79, Vol. 22, No. 2, Summer 2004. Copyright Â© 2004 by Duke University Press. They threaten to violate the pure bodies; such bodies can only be imagined as pure by the perpetual restaging of this fantasy of violation. (migrants, slaves) is concealed in a fantasy that it is the white subject who âbuilt this land.â2 The white subjects claim the place of hosts (âour shoresâ) at the same time as they claim the position of the victim, as the ones who are damaged by an âunmerciful government.â The narrative hence suggests that it is love for the nation that makes the white Aryans hate those whom they recognize as strangers, as the ones who are taking away the nation and the role of the Aryans in its history, as well as their future. We might note as well that the reading of others as hateful aligns the imagined subject with rights and the imagined nation with ground. This alignment is affected by the representation of both the rights of the subject and the grounds of the nation as already under threat. It is the emotional reading of hate that works to bind the imagined white subject
