Former Google Engineer Has History of An Affinity for White Nationalism (AKA Alt-right)



Do you recall hearing about the "alt-right?" If you recall hearing the moniker, it is worth noting the words have been deployed to deflect and disguise a great evil, much like the wearing of hoods and robes by Ku Klux Klan member at their cross burnings and cases of African-American harassment.

As an example. while not the classic white hood and robe, a two-minutes scene from the movie Django Unchained should, in a humorous way, speak to the cloaking analogy.


The words: "Alt-right" serves a similar purpose. The leaders of the far-right racist, misogynist, and anti-Jewish ideology have also developed and promulgate a cartoon character to facilitate subliminal advancement of their social disease.

A brief set of excerpts from Wikipedia will help.

Wikipedia
The alt-right, or alternative right, is a loosely defined group of people with far-right ideologies who reject mainstream conservatism in favor of white nationalism, principally in the United States, but also to a lesser degree in Canada and Europe.[1][2][3][4]

Beliefs

The Associated Press stated that the alt-right' or 'alternative right' is a name currently embraced by some white supremacists and white nationalists to refer to themselves and their ideology, which emphasizes preserving and protecting the white race in the United States in addition to, or over, other traditional conservative positions such as limited government, low taxes and strict law-and-order. The movement has been described as a mix of racism, white nationalism and populism ... criticizes "multiculturalism" and more rights for non-whites, women, Jews, Muslims, gays, immigrants and other minorities. Its members reject the American democratic ideal that all should have equality under the law regardless of creed, gender, ethnic origin or race.[1][46]

 So what of the long intro to this piece?

Since you successfully remembered the "alt-right", you may very well recall the well-publicized Google firing of a young Engineer (late last week).


If you do not recall the firing and all that precipitated the termination, here is the story (or reminder).

The memo, called “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber,” Is basically ten pages of "alt-right far-right bull cap (For expediency). The essence of the memo and the item which precipitated the Engineer's firing was as such:  he argued that women are innately incapable, unwilling, or unfit to perform a wide range of engineering and tech industry jobs. 

Indications of bigotry and misogyny: 

I wonder if the young racist is aware of women have a dominant and integral role in tracking international terrorists while many serve in our security services.   
Is it possible he is unaware that we have women pilots in our military, and that includes fighter pilots?   
He is actually old enough to know that an increasing number of woman are serving at the highest levels in US corporations.   
The Verge offers an excellent report on the socially degenerate former Google employee. Link.

I still haven't explained why I opened with the so-called Alt-right, have I?  within hours of being fired for his Paleozoic Era 10-page treatise what did the young bigot do?  He sat for a video interviewed with a well known and popular YouTube alt-right facilitator: Stefan Molyneux.  His full interview is posted below but if you are a rational person you like me, skipped through the far-right broadcast picking key points.  After all, the salient point is the actual visit with Molyneux in an of itself.

45 minutes of unadulterated bigotry.









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.



Of course, you are not one who supports alt-right far right lunacy, bigotry and racism Yet if you think with any level of depth, you will accept the fact your vote for the GOP is as enabling (and facilitating) of Neo-American fascism as the low intellect bigot who joins white nationalists and alt-right protest gatherings. You are ,more precisely, a facilitator of the very ideology stated by Demore ad the alt-right.

Conservatism Is, Like It Or Not, Fueling White Nationalism

You may or may not know...in fact, you probably do not know and probably do not care that Charles Barkley (known GOP supporter and former Pro basketball player) sat with White supremacist Richard Spencer for a discussion of Spencer's mission in advancing white supremacy.  Regardless of your awareness or concerns about the interaction and the interviews role in exploring growing American bigotry and racism, we perservere. We have posted a four-minute version of the interaction.

Barkley/Spencer 4:45 minutes


Now for a quick run through an ugly path of how overt racism looks.





This one is eight full minutes of utterance racism with an over the top layer of White privilege..and yes the man is a "Deplorable."

And, since Trump ascended across the political landscape, would you expect an increase in white nationalism?  A piece in The Nation calls it as it exists.

Another shade of US racism, bigotry......

We are not saying all conservatives are racist; we are comfortable with all racists are conservates.

When we elect people who fail to work towards a tolerant and healthy society we leave ourselves open for lessons of the past.

Will White Nationalism Completely Engulf Conservative And Independent America?




Last fall through this past week, multiple media, and social media reported on growing white supremacist support for Donald Trump's primary campaign. 

Newsy

Hate Groups Love Donald Trump, And He Doesn't Seem To Mind

A number of white supremacist groups have publicly endorsed Donald Trump's run for the presidency, and Trump isn't discouraging them.
By Sebastian Martinez | August 27, 2015

  • Matt FernerNational Reporter, The Huffington Post 12/7/2015 

The New Yorker


While the growing affinity for a GOP candidate who campaigns with bigotry, racism and public mocking of the physically challenged may not concern you, your comfort zone will receive a Trump rattle as narcissism and elitist insensitivity reaches outside of his inner family (and most white people). 


Paul Ryan, House Speaker, spoke out against Trump's talking of banning Muslim entry into the United States.  The RNC Chair, Reince Priebus, spoke in a tacit manner about Trump's remarks, effectively took 'the fifth" on requests to comment on Trumps racists proposal.  All GOP primary candidates have commented on Trump's proposal. Rand (Ron Paul's son) Paul even reached to affiliate with Trumps remarks via his comment about his "similar" proposal. Party response to Trump's remarks to Trump's comments has been very measured; probably with, in their minds, good cause.  The party has a full lock on a voting bloc that can be subscribed only as the white nationalist vote.  

The fully metastasized white nationalist vote has been careful developed and nurtured since Barry Goldwater's and Richard Nixon and Kevin Phillip's mid-to-late 1960s southern strategy.  


Not only can the GOP comfortable count on the US south and the Plains States as slam dunk electoral votes, the well-honed strategy has given rise to the a shifting national paradigm of *it is OK to express bias, bigotry and overt racism*.  A paradigm shift that picked up steam with Ronald Reagan's  political operative: Lee Atwater.  

The Nation, immediately after Mitt Romneys loss to President Obama.

Excerpt (despite no one has time for a 42-minute audio, posted to facilitate 360-degree responsibility)
The late, legendarily brutal campaign consultant Lee Atwater explains how Republicans can win the vote of racists without sounding racist themselves:
You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger”—that hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff, and you’re getting so abstract. Now, you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites.… “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, uh, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.” 
Now, the same indefatigable researcher who brought us Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” remarks, James Carter IV, has dug up the entire forty-two-minute interview from which that quote derives. Here, The Nation publishes it in its entirety for the very first time. 
Listen to the full forty-two-minute conversation with Atwater:



A party that has carved out a major swath of voting support which reaches back to the antebellum south has now  evolved celebrity kingpin to lead a crusade, refuses to either full embrace a shameful reality or comprehensively refute the reality. 

If you have a few minutes skip through the following video, watch as MSNBC's Thomas Roberts and GOP shill Michael Steele gloss over the proliferation of support for Trump from white supremacists. Robert's openly states Trump's August remarks distancing himself from David Duke's public support, but he carefully crafted a question to Steele that was as easy to skip around as avoiding stepping of sidewalk gutter drains (the 2:33 mark to the end of Steele's talking head gibberish).

ttp://on.msnbc.com/1jQO9St



Could the corporate cautiousness from MSNBC have in some way fulfilled an obligation to report via the quotes from Duke and Black, while pulling up (politically) shy of real comment about the matter? While MSNBC producers and writers fulfilled a responsibility to report on Trump's growing support from white supremacists, network management should be taken to task for failing to properly report the full impact of Trump's candidacy and the harm it will bring to our nation.

Politico
The white racist fringe of American politics is a fragmented one, where attitudes toward Trump range from full-fledged embrace to cautious optimism to skepticism. 
Black of Stormfront said Trump's rhetoric has been a boon to white nationalists. “He has sparked an insurgency and I don’t think it’s going to go away,” he told POLITICO of Trump.

White nationalist set the path for sympathetic and gullible Americans to follow via the use of the word "insurgency". What message does the word send to all too willing militia Iraq action with Concealed Carry laws and in some states Open Carry (weapons) laws proliferate? The word "insurgency" isn't synonymous with peaceful actions towards change or, for that matter, regression.

Ann Coulter Leads The White Nationalist Charge After the Paris Terrorist Attacks (Trump Supporter)


RACISTS LOVING TRUMP!
Coulter AfterParis Attacks: ‘Trump Was Elected President Tonight’- Ann Coulter

Immediately after the tragic terrorist attack in Paris France, conservatives got busy like flies on a jar of honey blaming President Obama, railing about nuking the entirety of Islamic life and spewing other gyrations of racism. Ann Coulter, as usual, took up the top cheerleader spot (bones and all) with a racist affiliation and lauding of one Donald "Regress America Please" Trump.

Coulter's racism is embed in the AddictingInfo piece that follows. I find it interesting Coulter never speaks such language after all too frequent cases of racist attacks against African-Americans.  

AUTHOR NOVEMBER 14, 2015 11:15 AM
For most of the world, Friday night’s terror in Paris was agonizing and traumatic. On social media, people began organizing blood drives, arranging for shelter for those caught in danger, and millions tweeting things like “Nous sommes tous Parisiens” – we are all Parisians. President Obama expressed a similar sentiment in his address following the attacks. 
“Once again, we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians,” he said. “This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.” 
Not everyone was feeling the spirit of shared humanity, however. Conservative pundits spent the night shamelessly exploiting the tragedy to further their talking points. And whenever there is an opportunity to “shamelessly exploit a tragedy,” Ann Coulter can’t be far behind. Sure enough, it took her no time at all to come up with obnoxious talking points and hurl hateful xenophobia – even while the attacks were still happening.
ANGER? We can't even deport 3rd world pouring in, committing murder, child rape, Ft Hood, 9/11 etc. It's not "adult" https://t.co/Rg3HVtSTAQ 
— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015 
Every year, the US imports 100K more Muslims to live here permanently. Rubio says he wants more. Why would anyone support him?— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015 
Can we all agree now? No more Muslim immigration. How is this making life better for us? But the mass immigration machine churns on …— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015 
What's the upside of letting millions of Muslims migrate to western countries?— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015
Needless to say, she couldn’t be bothered to spare a moment for the victims. She had an ax to grind.
Why does NO ONE say the obvious thing on TV?! It's insane. Don't want terrorism in US? Stop importing Muslims!— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015
In the hours that followed, reports confirmed that the radical Islamist group known as ISIS were taking credit for the attacks. So far it is unknown who the perpetrators were or where they came from. (Statements from ISIS simply call them “brothers” fighting the “Crusaders” in France.) There is absolutely no indication that they were among the group of refugees fleeing violence and starvation in Syria. In fact, as some observers dryly noted, those very same refugees are running from ISIS. For them, the attack on Paris is an all-too-common occurrence, that’s why they are leaving their homes! 
To people blaming refugees for attacks in Paris tonight. Do you not realise these are the people the refugees are trying to run away from..? — Dan Holloway (@RFCdan) November 13, 2015
But most embarrassingly of all, Coulter used the deaths of over 100 people to breathlessly plug her favorite Republican candidate: Donald Trump.
They can wait if they like until next November for the actual balloting, but Donald Trump was elected president tonight.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015
Trump has been at the forefront of idiotic statements about foreign policy regarding the Middle East and therefore won over Coulter’s heart (or what passes for it). It consists of assuring his fans that he would “bomb the shit out of ISIS.” He doesn’t expand on it further other than to say he plans on making money after he kills everyone.
“ISIS is making a tremendous amount of money because they have certain oil camps, certain areas of oil that they took away,” Trump said. “They have some in Syria, some in Iraq. I would bomb the (expletive deleted) out of ’em. I would just bomb those suckers. That’s right. I’d blow up the pipes. … I’d blow up every single inch. There would be nothing left.
“And you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there and in two months, you ever see these guys, how good they are, the great oil companies? They’ll rebuild that sucker, brand new — it’ll be beautiful.”
Occupying a Middle Eastern country to take their oil reserves… what could go wrong?
Feel free to bookmark this page to refer back to when Trump’s campaign blows up in his face. Something tells me we won’t have to wait until next November to see it happen. After all, when has Ann Coulter ever been right?

If you think of dismissing Coulter as a noted conservative racist, thus relegating the comments to something of a one-off rant, think again. Trump is receiving support from the most disgusting among Americans: White Supremacist and White Nationalist. 

This past August, Buzzfeed ran a piece with the following headline:






David Duke On Trump: He’s “Certainly The Best Of The Lot” Running For President
 “I think he understands the real sentiment of America.”

After Donald Trump lauded Dwight Eisenhower's deportation of over one million people back to Mexico, Operation Wetback, Trumps racist army again raised its ugly head.





White Supremacists Are Thrilled Donald Trump Mentioned “Operation Wetback”

“This represents a milestone in the immigration debate.”


We realize that current conservatives poll takers do not give a damn about such reports. To be fair, we do not expect better from conservative America. Our efforts relate more to informing opened minded Americans who know America is not a nation void of people of color.  Thus, we as "good" liberals and progressives are about the business of reaching people who may take offense to a presidential candidate who so obviously courts American racist and one who is riding a tide of white privilege common to white supremacists and those who wish to extricate non-whites from the greater society.  If you think the last sentence is a bit harsh and doesn't represent your support for Trump (can company), ask yourself have you done your part in eliminating voter suppression; " ....extricate non-whites from the greater society."

You answer may reveal you as an "enabler."
