White Supremacist Rally in Charlottesville, VA Breaks out in Violence Against Counter Protesters

A white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA broke out in violence when a white supremacist attacked anti racism counter protesters. I can say is I’m at all surprised by this incident because I predicted that there may be some type of violence at this rally by white supremacists. I wrote about it in my last post.

Apparently, the violence began after someone drove a car into anti-racist counter-demonstrators. It is thought that this car was driven by white supremacists, who were probably trying to scare the anti-racists. Using violence to suppress opposers is nothing unexpected from people who thrive on hatred and violence against others who do may disagree with them. Typical fascist behavior!

Even though in a statement, Donald Trump addressed this violent incident he still refused to accept responsibility for the increase in hatred and racist violence in this country. He blamed “all sides” for the violence, still refusing to acknowledge that he has a “white nationalist”, Steve Bannon, on his cabinet. In case you do not know, the term “white nationalist” is a code word for white supremacist.

As if we can ever forget, Donald Trump used racist hate speech during his entire campaign for the presidency. He needs to own up to it and admit that this hate speech from his campaign may be a reason for the increased empowerment of white supremacists in this country. However, I will not hold my breath until he admits this connection between his campaign rhetoric and the increase in racist behavior in the United States. I don’t want to suffocate waiting for it!

 

White Nationalists Becoming More Active on College Campuses

In January, the night before alt-right figure Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak at the University of California, Berkeley, two members of the white supremacist group American Renaissance got in a fistfight with other young men after they were caught plastering trees and buildings around campus with posters that proclaimed, “Embrace white identity!”

White Nationalists Becoming More Active On College Campuses

In and effort to persuade more students to buy into their doctrine of hate, White Nationalists are ramping up recruitment efforts on America’s college campuses.  White nationalists (a.k.a. white supremacists) are feeling much freer to recruit people, in particular, white students, than ever before.  This movement has not gone unnoticed by the Southern poverty Law Center (SPLC) who are also forming chapters on college campuses, across the nation.

White nationalists have become more emboldened to spread their racist message, within the last year.  Could there possibly be any connection between the election of Donald Trump, the appointment of white nationalist Steve Bannon Steve Bannon as National Security Advisor (NSA), and the current trend of Trump supporters committing acts of violence across the country? Personally, I think there is!

Although it may be unfair to place the blame entirely on the election of Donald Trump, for the resurgence of hate speech and racism across the country, but I and many others think that some of Trump’s ugly racist rhetoric during the election didn’t help the matter.  Sometimes, a small fringe element, such as the white nationalists, need to feel empowered by someone who holds a high office, to bring their activities more out in the open.  The election of someone whom they feel shares the same values (if you can call me that) as they do, often gives a “green light” to any group that deep down knows they are wrong, to start bringing their activities out into the public eye.

The very fact that white nationalists have become very sensitive about being rightfully labeled as “white supremacists” in itself says a lot.  After all, if someone is truly proud of who they are and what they feel their mission is, why do they choose to hide behind the name white nationalists.  If they truly feel that they are correct, why should they be proud of it?  The answer is; they are engaging in activities of hatred and violence that endanger public safety, and they know it.

This resurgence of racial hatred is a very ugly thing and needs to be combated at every level.  I’m very glad that groups like SPLC on campus SPLC on campus were started.  The Southern Poverty Law Center really deserves a lot of credit for stepping up and doing something proactive to fight the rise of white nationalism.

 

White nationalism – Wikipedia

White nationalism is a type of nationalism or pan-nationalism which holds the belief that white people are a race and seeks to develop and maintain a white national identity. Its proponents identify with and are attached to the concept of a white nation. White nationalists seek to ensure the survival of (what they see as) the white …

Donald Trump Supporters Scare Me More Than He Does

Donald Trump Supporters Scare Me More Than He Does

If you didn’t think that Donald Trump was scary enough on his own, his supporters are more frightening than he is.  After reading this article in Mother Jones, I realize that Hillary Clinton was correct for describing them as “deplorable.” Most of the Trump supporters are deplorable, especially those who made it into this article.

Hillary Clinton made a mistake by attempting to walk back her statement.  I would have respected her more if she would have stuck by her original statement, perhaps with a small qualification, perhaps to distinguish those few Donald Trump supporters who are terribly misguided, disaffected, or merely angry at the system.

In many ways, it is true, especially when applied to the collection of lowlife and racist assholes listed in this article.  Most of these groups who identify themselves as Donald Trump supporters include everything from the KKK, The Aryan Nation, and other groups so have come to identify themselves as “white nationalists,” which has become a code word for a white supremacist.  In fact, many of these groups and people are on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) watchlist for hate groups.  Most of these groups and people should be considered as no less that domestic terrorists.  These groups and people have used violence in the past and are very likely to use it again.  Hopefully, the FBI are also watching them closely.

These people like to hide their identity much in the same way a Klansman hides under a white robe and hood.  What a bunch of cowards, these Donald Trump supporters are!  Donald Trump should be ashamed that his ugly rhetoric attracts people such as these.  But as we all know, Donald Trump is shameless and is space proud of it.

Donald Trump’s candidacy for POTUS has brought a lot of these secret racist hate groups out of the shadows even though they are a fringe element that is in the minority. He has given them a voice and has validated their ugly mentality because Donald Trump has given voice to the same feelings they have. Much of his rhetoric is the same as what they have expressed for years.

Adding to Donald Trump’s lack of credibility is that he has not distanced himself from these people. He is just as much of a loser as his followers. Hopefully, after he is defeated, they will go back into the shadows and disappear just like he should.

White Supremacists love Donald Trump And His Racist Message

The well-dressed men who gathered in Cleveland’s Ritz-Carlton bar after Donald Trump’s speech accepting the Republican nomination for president prefer the term “Europeanists,” ”alt-right,” or even “white nationalists.” They are also die-hard Trump supporters.

White Supremacists love Donald Trump And His Racist Message

They may not dress in white hoods and robes and burn crosses as they once did, but their message of hate is still as offensive as it ever has been. In fact, now, it is even more offensive. The fact that people of this belief system have as much power as they do is quite scary. These people carried too much influence at the Republican National Convention, which happened last week. Donald Trump and his racist message against Latinos, Muslims, and others that many members of the Republican Party seem to feel threatened by was a big hit with these people.

These people are far more dangerous than some redneck living in some dilapidated trailer out in the country because they wield a lot of power and influence in the current Republican party. They absolutely loved Donald Trump’s racist message, put forth in his acceptance speech last Thursday. They felt that they had a lot in common with Donald Trump because he, like them, pandered to the lowest common denominator; racism.

Even though they seem to prefer being called “white nationalists” and other such terms, their message is all the same type of hatred as it always was. These people, like Donald Trump, deliver a message that is no longer relevant, especially in this day and age. They are believers in an “America First” policy that is no longer practical in the 21st century when the noted SM United States is so connected to the rest of the world. Even though we may be the richest nation on earth, we are still very dependent on the rest of the world to give us goods and commodities that we are no longer capable of producing ourselves, not to mention our huge financial interests.

During his acceptance speech, Donald Trump kept harping on the same point; blaming immigrants, Muslims, and Latinos for all the problems that exist in this country. In my opinion, is people like Donald Trump and other wealthy white men, mostly of European descent, who are the real villains here. The way I look at and as I have said before in earlier posts,I view this as just another attempt by rich white men to maintain their control of this nation’s wealth; something I view as being totally wrong. After all, why should this country’s resources be controlled by people like Donald Trump and the white supremacists who support him?
