"White Lives Matter?" Kill It Before It Grows

When we start a piece with a video, rest assured the video has lead section information worthy of setting the stage what comes after.

MSNBC's, Joy Ann Reid-AM JOY, hosted a stellar show this past Saturday. While the show focused primarily on issues related to Trump's crumbling administration, the following segment related to white supremacy may have stolen the show (sort of speak).  If you continue to hold views the GOP is a political party and movement void of an inner core of racism and bigotry, your world is also starting to crumble.  

If allowed, information kills ignorance.

Before we turn this piece over to a Crooks & Liars article, allow another key insertion. 


"White Lives Matter" Is nothing more than pure unadulterated white supremacy. If we are not seeing white people stopped via profiling with all too often physical violence from cops, that surreptitious movement is a dangerous cover. If you can only find isolated cases of cops quick-killing of black people while wanton racist like Trump's Sebastian Gorka railing about black on black crime, we must recognize the early stages of totalitarianism with fissures of white supremacy.  Yes, we have seen this before.

Outnumbered By Anti-Racist Protesters, Nazis In Murfreesboro Forced To Cancel Hate-Rally (VIDEO)

Following the "White Lives Matter" rally in Shelbyville, TN today, another one was to take place in Murfreesboro, but anti-racist protesters far outnumbered the Nazis and the group was forced to cancel. However, some awful things did take place in Murfreesboro, such as a family was seen with a small child giving Nazi salutes. The White…

"Don’t Be a Sucker" (Historic Video)

US History revisited by white supremacists and a president facilitates.

Trump also stated there were “very fine people” on both sides, including those participating in the white nationalist rally. “Not all of those people were neo-Nazis. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch,” he said.
We should point out former top level military generals, not any former military officers are not in the habit of the nonverbal dynamics you will see over the next 45 seconds.

While the nation's 45th President totally validated and sanctioned US white supremacists and its close cousin US Nazism via his "fine people: remarks, know that the white supremacist's movement he seems to support is not a "fine" state of mind.

‘Jews will not replace us’

The following video from the Rachel Maddow show offers insight into the underbelly of the United States. I suggest skipping to minute 8:30 of the video as it is 19 minutes long and that generally means some imparted information is not necessary for grasping the message from the segment.

In the early 1940s the US War Department developed an educational video which remains relevant as far out as 2017.

ProPublica: Neo-White Supremacists

A New Generation of White Supremacists Emerges in Charlottesville

by A.C. Thompson, ProPublica, and Karim Hajj, special to ProPublica,  Aug. 13, 2017, 7:59 p.m.

The white supremacist forces arrayed in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend — the largest gathering of its sort in at least a generation — represented a new incarnation of the white supremacy movement. Old-guard groups like the Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Nations and the Nazi skinheads, which had long stood at the center of racist politics in America, were largely absent.

Instead, the ranks of the young men who drove to Charlottesville with clubs, shields, pepper spray and guns included many college-educated people who have left the political mainstream in favor of extremist ideologies over the past few years. A large number have adopted a very clean cut, frat-boyish look designed to appeal to the average white guy in a way that KKK robes or skinhead regalia never could. Interviews show that at least some of these leaders have spent time in the U.S. armed forces.

Many belong to new organizations like Vanguard America, Identity Evropa, the Traditionalist Workers Party and True Cascadia, which have seen their numbers expand dramatically in the past year. Most of these groups view themselves as part of a broader "alt-right" movement that represents the extreme edge of right-wing politics in the U.S.

These organizations exhibited unprecedented organization and tactical savvy. Hundreds of racist activists converged on a park on Friday night, striding through the darkness in groups of five to 20 people. A handful of leaders with headsets and handheld radios gave orders as a pickup truck full of torches pulled up nearby. Within minutes, their numbers had swelled well into the hundreds. They quickly and efficiently formed a lengthy procession and begun marching, torches alight, through the campus of the University of Virginia.

Despite intense interest from the media, police and local anti-racists, the white supremacists kept the location of their intimidating nighttime march secret until the last moment.

The next day, the far-right forces — likely numbering between 1,000 and 1,500 — marched to Emancipation Park. Once again, they arrived in small blocs under military-style command. The racist groups were at least as organized and disciplined as the police, who appeared to have no clear plan for what to do when the violence escalated. The racist groups stood their ground at the park and were not dislodged for many hours.

For many of them, this will be seen as victory. "Every rally we're going to be more organized, we're going to have more people, and it's going to be harder and harder for them to shut us down," said a spokesman for Vanguard America, a fascist group, who gave his name as "Thomas." "White people are pretty good at getting organized."

And though police arrested James Fields Jr., a 20-year-old Ohio man, for allegedly driving a Dodge Charger into a crowd of anti-racist protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and wounding many others, the white supremacists generally avoided arrests.

They also outmaneuvered their anti-racist opponents. On Saturday, a multifaith group met at the historic First Baptist Church for a sunrise prayer ceremony featuring academic Cornel West and pastor Traci Blackmon. The anti-racists, many of them clergy members, walked quietly to Emancipation Park, where they were vastly outnumbered by the white supremacists.

Later, a band of more aggressive counter-protesters showed up at the park, chanting "Appalachia coming at ya. Nazi punks we're gonna smash ya!" These militant "antifa," or antifascists, were also repelled by the white supremacists.

Given the scale of the protests, the far-right groups suffered few injuries. That was particularly notable given the fact that multiple people near the protests were armed. Throughout the weekend, right-wing and left-wing militias equipped with assault rifles, pistols and body armor patrolled the streets of Charlottesville. (Virginia is an "open carry" state, so gun owners are legally allowed to tote around firearms.)

Many of the armed men viewed their role as maintaining a modicum of order. A "Three Percenter" militia out of New York state posted itself near Emancipation Park with the intention of keeping anti-racists from disrupting the rally. The group says it disapproves of racism but is dedicated to defending the free speech rights of all.

Blocks away, Redneck Revolt, a leftist militia from North Carolina, watched over the perimeter of a park where anti-racists had gathered, committed to preventing violent attacks by the white supremacist groups.

The presence of heavily armed citizens may have played a role in the decision of authorities to largely stay out of the violent skirmishes between the white supremacists and their opponents.

Those who actually marched included many new to the right-wing cause. The victory of Donald Trump in last year's presidential election has energized a whole wave of young people who were previously apathetic or apolitical, rally organizer Eli Mosley told ProPublica. The president has served as "megaphone" for far-right ideas, he said.

Mosley and his comrades are seeking to draw in as many of these newly politicized young people as possible. "We're winning," he said. "We're targeting the youth and making a movement that appeals to the youth."

Some of those who've gravitated to the extreme right milieu are former liberals — like Mosley's fellow rally organizer Jason Kessler — and supporters of Bernie Sanders. Many are ex-Libertarians.

"I was a libertarian," said Mosley, as white supremacists chanted "Whose streets? Our streets!" in the background. "I looked around and noticed that most Libertarians were white men. I decided that the left was winning with identity politics, so I wanted to play identity politics too. I'm fascinated by leftist tactics, I read Saul Alinsky, Martin Luther King … This is our '60s movement."

Know That Charlottesville Is A Connection Hitler's Germany 1929

This July 8, 2017 photo shows members of the KKK escorted by police past a large group of protesters during a KKK rally in Charlottesville, Va.
Image result for confederate flag

I didn't write this, but please feel free to copy and share.

As many news outlets aren't carrying this.

Photos from the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, last night.The rally will continue, through Saturday. This is what happens when you are comfortable enough with your new president, and the climate he created, that you no longer have to hide your hatred for people who are Black, Jewish, LGBT, Muslim....

You'd almost think it was a scene from a movie.

People who told me, in November, that things like this wouldn't happen, aren't aware of the history that predates us, and how easy for fanaticism, superstition, myth, fear, blame, ignorance,and xenophobia to take over and become the milieu of a country mired in apathy, laziness -governed in incompetency. I hope displays like this are rare and aren't becoming the norm, however after November, I am and will remain highly skeptical.

Someone posted that 'good people' wouldn't let this happen, and while I know there are a lot of 'good people' out there, I question their strength, and resiliency in a climate like this to step forward and say NO, 'we' are better than this.

I have never lived in fear like this, and perhaps I need to find strength in people elsewhere in the world, who live through revolution, conflict, strife, famine, and uncertainty on a daily basis and channel their strength and fortitude to see this through, I'll try.

There is something wrong when a chronological, not mental adult leads a country and allows crap like this to happen without speaking out against it. Yes, we are free to assemble, protest, etc..

However, this is wrong.

Please, share these photos on your timelines. Spread them on twitter, Reddit, Instagram, and anywhere else you can. If these bigots wanted privacy they should have worn their white hoods.

Lest we remind you......

Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.
Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist. 
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist. 
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew. 
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Trump's Star of David Clinton Meme

As we move towards the fall 2016 General Elections, each day brings new revelations, new horrors, and the new reality of America's Republican Party and millions of its followers.  The party and many of its members, supporters and followers are devolving along a path pre-ordained by the Godfather of US Conservatism: Ronald Reagan. While Richard Nixon (with Kevin Phillps) and Ronald Reagan (with Lee Atwater) both contributed to the current state of socially regressive politics, Reagan's overt support for white nationalist institutions such as Bob Jones University, inseminated the nation with perceptions of "It is OK to be a bigot."   

Who could have thought, Reagan's political strategy (The GOP Southern Strategy) would metastasize into a festering witches brew of overt hatred and racist manifestations from so many across the full breadth of the US? Moreover, who could have foretold a 21st Century US political party would advance a candidate who so appeals to neo-nazism and perpetrators of antisemitic ideology? 

As you read the following paragraph supplant the name "Trump" with the name "Hitler."
“I’ve experienced more pure, unadulterated anti-Semitism since coming out against Trump’s candidacy than at any other time in my political career,” Ben Shapiro wrote in National Review. “Trump supporters have threatened me and other Jews who hold my viewpoint. They’ve blown up my e-mail inbox with anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. They greeted the birth of my second child by calling for me, my wife, and two children to be thrown into a gas chamber.”
Yes, of course, Hitler analogies and metaphors via the Third Reich, are supposedly not cool. Ordinarily, an appropriate point. But, reliving humankind's past social horrors can be avoided via an understanding of, and reminders of, those horrors. 

The paragraph above is but one response to the most recent anti-Semitic Twitter from the GOP's "presumptive" nominee. The following meme was posted and quickly removed from Trump;s twitter page. Rest assured there is much more to the story.   

Donald Trump's "Star of David" Hillary Clinton Meme Was Created by White Supremacists

Notice the semblance to a Star of David? While some are commenting that Trump did not create the meme, we have another reminder of the inner core of the GOP's Carnival barking demagogue.

Donald Trump obviously spends copious amounts of time reading, viewing and interacting in or white supremacists media.

Also, notice the media outlet visibly associated with the meme. 

Yesterday, after reading the meme was posted and quickly removed, I also read it was removed from a well-known white supremacist website. Of more interest, the twitter reaction from a group of people who have roots in the US Jewish community (and in some cases, US media). Heavy dot com published a piece on July 2nd with reactions which highlight the pathetic state of the nascent GOP party leader:

Donald Trump Star of David Tweet Sparks Outrage

Again, it is important to point out Trump's affinity for visiting Twitter pages so full of racist and anti-semantic posts, assertions is not a racist are futile (Newt Gingrich). 

Trump's racist and anti-Semite Twitter research, uncovered a meme created in late June via message board that is literally full of pure garbage: /pol/ - Politically Incorrect★ , The following actual post is available via visiting this link and scrolling  down(from MIC dot com).

MIC also reports as follows.
Of note is the file name of the photo, HillHistory.jpg, potentially a nod to the Neo-Nazi code for "HH," or "Heil Hitler," which the alt-right is fond of hiding in plain sight. 
The watermark on the lower-left corner of the image leads to a Twitter account that regularly tweets violent, racist memes commenting on the state of geopolitical politics.

And, there is more according to MIC.

How about another exhibit from the message board.

Jews are two-faced backstabbers who aren't to be trusted? We must inform /pol/ of this discovery.

Let's hope the GOP party leader secured his heinous meme from another source. Yet, I am of little hope.

Trump Is Not A Racist; Yet He Is Adored By Racists

...And he plays with Fire!

White supremacists are as prevalent as any "run-of-the-mill" home-grown or jihadist terrorist. They occupy almost every fabric of American society and are manifesting on an international basis like weeds in an open field.

Herewith are a couple of examples:

Anders Breivik (alleged Christian)

Cliven Bundy (notorious tax evaders, anarchist, and racist)
"..let me tell you about the Negra."

Of course, you are not a sympathizer and certainly not a supporter of such garbage and low life human beings.  Yet, you might find a fissure of such garbage in the current GOP political primaries.

If you look and listen very carefully,  America's white supremacist have what some would call a "white knight" in Donald J. Trump. Despite Trump's occasional surrounding himself with African-American pawns, he is far more a hero of far right racially charged haters and white nationalists. 

The misogynist racist in the red cap was reported to be no other than Matthew Heimbach White Student Union founder, at a Trump rally.  The black (woman) protester was called a "nigger", "coon", and a "cunt."

Donald Trump has never publicly relished support from many white supremacist groups. He has at times, responded to the affiliate jargon of David Duke, with perfunctory comments like: "I don't need their support."  He hasn't yet gone speech platform overt in repudiating his racist followers and supporters.

In fact, Trumps addiction to late night Twitter worship often leads to re-tweets of tweets from Whtie Supremacist. 

Trump's latest episode of "pass on the racism"  (via Twitter) was published in Talking Points Memo. Before the TPM except, checkout a tidbit of a Twitter thread via Trump's latest tweet originator.

    Donald Trump Can't Stop Retweeting White Supremacist Twitter Accounts

    Trump has for months elevated tweets from racist Twitter accounts to his more than seven million followers, but Tuesday night's retweet was the latest of his at least half-dozen times engaging with white supremacist accounts.
    @keksec__org's bio currently reads: "#keksec, Capitalist/Neo-Boer, Author, Journalist, #RWDS member. Against all Anglos." The account, which also frequently posts photos of women with the hashtag #WhiteGirlsAreMagic, had more than 54,000 followers.
