"It's Okay To Be White" A phrase originating on 4chan in 2017, it was created with the purpose of putting it on fliers to be put in public places. Originators assumed that "liberals" would react negatively to such fliers and condemn them or take them down, thus "proving" that liberals did not even think it was "okay" to be white.
"Love Your Race" A phrase used by white supremacists to encourage racialism.
"Meine Ehre Heisst Treue" "Unser Ehre Heisst Treue" A German phrase translating to "My Honor is Loyalty". It was originally a motto used by the Waffen SS.

"Sieg Heil" A German phrase translating to "Hail Victory". It was one of the most widely-used slogans by the Nazi Party.
"Six Gorillion" "Muh Six Gorillion" A phrase making reference to the six million Jewish people killed in the Holocaust. The "million" is replaced with the nonsensical "Gorillion", implying that the number of Jewish deaths caused by the Holocaust is greatly exaggerated.
"The Goyim Know, Shut It Down!" "Da Goyim Know" An antisemitic mockery phrase meant to be understood as spoken by a panicked Jew responding to an occurrence that would ostensibly reveal the "Jewish plot" to manipulate non-Jewish people (A.K.A. "Goyim").

"Kings N Shiet"

A phrase, written as if spoken in exaggerated African-American Vernacular English, saying "We Were Kings". This phrase mocks the Black Egyptian hypothesis.

The use of mock-vernacular is meant to contrast supposedly "uneducated" African-Americans with supposedly "civilized" Ancient Egyptians.
"White Lives Matter" WLM A phrase meant to combat and oppose the Black Lives Matter movement.
"You Will Not Replace Us" A reference to the popular white supremacist belief that white people are in danger of extinction due to increasing birth rates among non-white people.
