As Trumps World Turns: White Nationalism, Racism, Trumpism



As Facebook bans white supremacists posts... this one is your call.

Twenty-two seconds of pure malarkey. And Trump knows it.



On the day, Trump signed his nation emergency declaration he made this comment: “People hate the word ‘invasion,’ but that’s what it is ."

Just before the New Zealand shooting and killings, the shooter posted a comment to social media: "...to show the invaders that our lands will never be their lands.”

The terrorists also left a 74-page "(nut case rambling) manifesto.   The manifesto is laced with white supremacist ramblings ad mention of Trump.  To advance our point about white supremacy, the New Zealand terrorists also flashed an increasingly common white power signed while standing handcuffed for his first court appearance.

Of course, we can find non-racist flashes of the hijacked "OK" signal, but Is there any doubt why the New Zealand racists flashed the sign?

On March 23, 2019, The Hill posted a piece regarding the increase in hate cities in cities where Trump held or holds rallies. Herewith is an excerpt from the piece.
United States counties where President Trump hosted a campaign rally in 2016 saw a 226 percent increase in reported hate crimes compared to similar counties that did not host one, an analysis released by The Washington Post has revealed. 
The analysis, which was published on Friday, was conducted by Ayal Feinberg, a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of North Texas, and Regina Branton and Valerie Martinez-Ebers, two political science professors at the university. 
They said their research sought to explain how some of Trump’s rhetoric "may encourage hate crimes."
OK, so we have Trump spewing hatred at rallies along with a hate crime rise in the host cities. What is the rational mind to think?

In 2018 the Southern Poverty Law Center Hate Crime Map 2018. The map is interactive and lends to viewing changes in hate crimes not only via years 2000 - 2018, it facilities viewing of how states are showing increased cases.

As Trump's World Turns: Bill Maher, Trump's Veracity Void And White Nationalism


We only rarely post Bill Maher on this page.  A few Maher segments have drawn our interest and seem share worthy.








Now, lets move to a more serious set of comments: Trump's motherlode tweeter attack and his denial of growing white supremacy.

CNN broadcast a segment a few days ago regarding Trump's mother lode of weekend tweets. apparently, 45 spent the entire weekend watching Fox News (and other media) tweeting with every zany thought while fully loaded with lies and manipulative fantasy. Rollingstone dot com took a shot at Trump's 50 tweets; sad to put it mildly.  

Veracity isn't a word of conception which is ingrained in Trump's character.

Chris Cillizza took to the CNN set graphics board and ran through a few lies and misstatements (AKA "falsehoods"). At one point in the three minutes segment Cillizza offered wrong numbers regarding his former employer assessment of  Trump lies. He stated the number of lies for the president (according to the Washington Post) has reached 8,000 lies since taking office. He state such while admitting he just returned from vacation. It appears his vacation time lead to a misstatement in the area of missing one thousand lies.  Washington Post headline and lined piece. On the 773rd day of his term in office, Trump's "lying scale" has reach 9,014. After this past weekend it appears the number will increase by double digits.


Now for Cillizza...



The Associated Press (AP) fact check of Trump veto signing comments.  The AP link navigates to the full post we have focused on Trump's statements regarding white nationalism as a "small group of people.
WHITE NATIONALISM 
TRUMP, when asked if he views white nationalism as a rising threat worldwide: “I don’t really. I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems. I guess if you look at what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that’s the case. I don’t know enough about it yet. They’re just learning about the person and the people involved. But it’s certainly a terrible thing.” — remarks Friday in Oval Office. 
THE FACTS: Both data and many experts who track violent extremists point to white nationalism as a rising threat in the U.S. and abroad. 
According to data released this month by the New York-based Anti-Defamation League, for instance, white supremacist propaganda efforts nearly tripled last year from 2017. Reports of the propaganda — which can include fliers, stickers, banners and posters that promote hateful ideology — rose 182 percent to 1,187 cases. That’s up from the 421 reported in 2017. 
The number of racist rallies and demonstrations also rose last year, according to the group. At least 91 white supremacist rallies or other public events attended by white supremacists were held in 2018, up from 76 the previous year. 
The Anti-Defamation League in January said domestic extremists killed at least 50 people in the U.S. in 2018, up from 37 in 2017, and noted that “white supremacists were responsible for the great majority of the killings, which is typically the case.” 
Separately, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported the U.S. had more hate groups last year than at any point in at least the past two decades. The organization, which tracks white supremacists and other far-right extremists, said the 1,020 groups it counted in 2018 amounted to the highest number since the center broadened its survey of such groups in the 1990s.
The center said it was the fourth straight year of hate group growth, representing a 30 percent increase roughly coinciding with Trump’s campaign and presidency. That came following three straight years of decline near the end of the Obama administration. 
And the Justice Department reported in November that hate crimes across the U.S. spiked 17 percent in 2017 — marking a rise for the third straight year. There were 7,175 reported hate crimes that year, up from 6,121 in 2016, according to the FBI report. More than half of the crimes were motivated by bias against a person’s race or ethnicity. Anti-Semitic hate crimes increased 37 percent. 
Among the episodes in the last few years: a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 after which Trump blamed “both sides” for violence, and last October’s shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in which the gunman accused of killing 11 people allegedly drew inspiration from white nationalism. Authorities last month arrested a Coast Guard lieutenant, an alleged white supremacist who appeared interested in attacking top Democrats and network TV journalists.
End the AP (read more linked above)
“It’s not only a national concern, white supremacy is a global terror threat. There is a link between the white supremacists here in the US, those in Europe and what we’ve now seen in New Zealand,” says Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and National Director of the Anti-Defamation League. pic.twitter.com/yIWDG35orH

"Small group of people"





A few days ago an image of SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was vandalized as such:



A few days before the yet another case of white supremacist mass murder.  Mass murder via an animal who left a manifesto and claims he was transformed t a racist during trips to Europe.

The following image represents a type of Trump supporter we are seeing much more than is healthy. 

After the terrorist deaths of 49 innocent religious worshippers in New Zealand (including children), it is pathetic anyone could capture an image as the sick exhibition above. Apparently, the image of a Trump nut case who strategically drove past a New Zealand massacre commemoration in Cleveland Ohio.

Trump supporter drives ‘build the wall’ float past New Zealand mourners at Cleveland City Hall

The image somewhat reminds of the Florida bomber who mailed bombs to CNN and members of the US Congress.  His abode looks as like a veritable propaganda van for  Trumpism.

The Daily Mail UK is joining other credible media in reporting the extent to wh9ch the New Zealand terrorist (white supremacist) is a Trump supporter. According to Daily Mail policy, we have linked their latest article, here.  

How amazingly sad we live in a time in which the US President can sit on camera and deny the existential reality of growing white supremacy. As stated in a TPI piece we published yesterday, Trump's denials are longstanding, trite and laced with motive. CNN's Don Lemon best captured Trump's indifference.
Trump denies growing over racism but aren't we seeing and reading more cases of abuse against African-Americans in the State of Ohio? The answer is "yes." I recall recent reports of hangman nooses at a UPS distribution center and I believe similar reports from a GM plant in the state.

Alas, Trump would deny the proliferation of which nationalism, when his party has a long-term member of Congress, has the collar of the nation's most vocal elected racist: Steve King (R-IA)

Another look and listen.



More?  

Fox News recently suspended one of its more vile demagogue hosts for anti-Muslin rants. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.  Wouldn't you know who came to the defense of Fox News's Pirro? The US President who stated he felt growing white nationalism is among a.. "small group of people." 

Media Matters

And how did 45 react?


....must stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die! Stay true....
....to the people that got you there. Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for . Your competitors are jealous - they all want what you’ve got - NUMBER ONE. Don’t hand it to them on a silver platter. They can’t beat you, you can only beat yourselves!

We titled this piece as such for a reason. 

Is there any doubt Trump has a motive for his defense of all things bigoted and racist?

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.
alt text

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.

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.

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."

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.
