    Default They're Not Alt-Right. They're NeoNazis/White Supremacists

    They're Not Alt-Right. They're NeoNazis/White Supremacists

    By Seashells - Nov 14, 2016

    Dear Talking Heads and Print Journalists,

    You seem really concerned about offending the feelings of NeoNazis, otherwise know as White Supremacists or White Nationalists. GET OVER IT!

    The Neo Nazis know that their usual tags inspire revulsion amongst many Americans. That's why Bannon and his ilk have invented the term "Alt Right". Most people don't even realize what it means... it just vaguely sounds sort of Conservative. Not as hateful. Almost could be benign.

    "Hey, isn't the Alt-Right just the Indie version of the Republican party for millennials"?

    They knew they had to rebrand. And they knew using a different term would help obfuscate the truth of what they are.

    So stop using the term "Alt-Right" and just come out and call them what they are:

    Neo Nazis. And if that's too raw, then at least have the integrity to call them White Supremacists or White Nationalists.

    White supremacists extremists plotting terrorist attacks across Europe and America

    German far-Right extremists teaming up with gangs in America and Europe to plan attacks, intelligence chief warns


    11/2016

    Far-right extremists in Germany are joining forces with like-minded groups across Europe and even the United States as they prepare to carry out more attacks, the country's intelligence chief has warned.

    Hans-Georg Maassen, the head of the Verfassungsschutz, said the agency had been forced to step up its efforts to foil plots by neo-Nazi and fascist groups following a surge in extremist violence in 2015.

    "This is not just purely a German phenomenon," he told Reuters, "the Right-extremist scene is networking on a European level, and in some cases, with connections in the United States."

    "We have seen in a series of cases that there are numerous people in the far-Right extremist scene who are ready to do anything and who have joined forces to create Right-wing terrorist cells."

    He added: "We are trying to investigate these cells, if they exist, and to prevent any attacks."

    Mr Maassen's remarks came after the Verfassungsschutz's annual report revealed that cases of far-Right violent acts in Germany had increased by 42 per cent to 1,408 in 2015.

    The number of arson attacks on refugee centers has also surged to 75, compared to just five in the previous year.

    It is feared that much of the violence is in reaction to the influx of more than one million migrants and refugees into Germany last year as part of ChancellorAngela Merkel's "open door" immigration policy.

    Public support for far-Right political parties in Germany is at a record high, with the anti-Islam "Alternative for Deutschland" (Afd) group surging in the polls.

    One recent study found that the Afd, which believes Islam is "incompatible" with German society, is now the country's third largest party.

    The anti-immigrant movement Pegida has also risen to prominence in Germany, despite being accused by Sigmar Gabriel, the German vice-chancellor, of drawing on the "battle rhetoric" of the Nazi party.

    Germany is reeling from a spate of violent terror attacks which took place earlier this year, several of which have been linked to far-Right extremism.

    In July, a Munich teenager who was reportedly inspired by the far-Right Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik gunned down 10 people and injured 36 others near a shopping centre.

    Investigators found sheaths of Right-wing extremist material at the 18-year-old's home and said he was "clearly inspired" by Breivik's massacre of 77 people in 2011.

    More recently, in October, a police officer was shot dead by a member of the "Reich Citizens," a group which refuses to believe in the fall of the German empire and does not recognise the modern German state.

    The following week, a member of the same group was arrested on suspicion of an arson attack on a family of refugees.

    In May, more than a thousand far-Right activists held a rally outside Berlin's main railway station protesting Mrs Merkel's refugee policy.

    Many chanted slogans such as "No Islam and German soil" and "Merkel must go" while others donned T-shirts with messages such as "Rapefugees not welcome."

    According to the Verfassungschutz, there are an estimated 11,800 violent far-Right extremists in Germany.

    “America Belongs to White Men,” Alt-Right [Nazi extremist] Founder Says


    12.7.2016

    THERE WERE NO Nazi salutes this time, at least. But Richard Spencer, the white supremacist Trump supporter trying to make racism cool by rebranding it “alt-right,” gave another rabble-rousing speech on Tuesday night, this time at Texas A&M University.


    In case there was any ambiguity about his message, video posted on Twitter by Josef Winkler, a college sophomore who was repulsed by Spencer’s statements, showed him boasting that, because of the conquest of North America by European invaders, “America belongs to white men.”


    Spencer, who attended an exclusive prep school in Dallas, went on to describe the lessons that he took about how Texas was settled from his favorite movie, “The Searchers,” which stars John Wayne in the role of a racist former Confederate soldier.


    Another clip recorded by Winkler — and a live stream of the entire event posted online by the school’s student newspaper, The Battalion — shows that Spencer went on to praise Donald Trump as “an alt-right hero” for reminding white Americans of what, he said, “makes the white race truly unique and truly wonderful.”

    Spencer also reiterated what he said about immigration last month in Washington, during an event that did feature Nazi salutes from his supporters. Asked how he justified banning non-European immigrants, Spencer said, “because this is our goddamn country.”

    Spencer addressed dozens of supporters, and what CNN described as a larger number of protesters, in a hall rented by an alumnus of the school. On the campus outside, there were at least three protests, including one raucous gathering of more than a thousand protesters chanting “Racist Go Home!”

    One of the protesters, Alison Macrina, told The Intercept that the lively demonstration on campus took place near the football stadium, where there was also “a school-sponsored anti-hate pep rally that convened entirely because of the Richard Spencer event.”


    Macrina, a digital privacy activist in Houston, added that some of the more conservative students who initially attended the rally inside the stadium later joined the demonstration outside, “when they saw that the outdoor protest was massive, peaceful, and pretty fun.”


    As The Battalion reported, the rally in the stadium was addressed by University President Michael Young, the Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight, and Max Glauben, a Holocaust survivor, and it also featured music and dance performances.


    Earlier in the day, Spencer had scoffed at the school-sponsored rally, telling reporters that the university’s president seemed to be afraid of letting students hear his message. “You’re here right now because you know in your bones that the alt-right is the future,” Spencer said at a news conference. “You know that white identity politics is ineluctable. You know that white identity politics is going to enter the world and it is going to be a powerful force in the 21st century.”


    After the event, one of the attendees, a young man wearing one of Trump’s Make America Great Again caps, told a Battalion reporter that he was impressed by Spencer’s “good, resounding message,” that white Americans should respond to “demographic change” by embracing what he called their distinct racial identity. “From the thing as a whole, with everyone’s reaction and everything, I think that those words that he says certainly leave an impact, to the point where, as an outsider, who’s just new to this, and new to everything, I do think that he does bring up some valid arguments, with his message, simply because it creates so much tension,” Spencer’s new fan said. “If they weren’t valid, no one would care.”

    Far-Right Terrorism Threat Growing, Says Top Police Officer

    National coordinator for counter-terrorism policing says forces take threat of neo-Nazis as seriously at that of Islamic extremists

    by Vikram Dodd - 24 November 2016

    A top counter-terrorism officer has said police fear the threat of far-right violence is growing and poses a similar danger to communities as other forms of extremism.

    The senior national coordinator for counter-terrorism policing, deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu, said: "Over the past 12 months, there have been indications that the threat from [the] extreme right wing could be increasing and we are alive to this."

    Basu made his comments following the sentencing of the neo-Nazi Thomas Mair to a whole-life term at the Old Bailey on Wednesday for the murder of the Labour MP Jo Cox. Mair shot and stabbed the 41-year-old mother of two as she arrived for a constituency surgery in Birstall, West Yorkshire, in a politically motivated assassination.

    Basu said referrals to the anti-radicalisation scheme Prevent linked to the far right had increased over the last year. "Currently just under 10% of all Prevent referrals relate to the extreme right wing, and we have put programmes in place to support those at risk of being radicalised," he said.

    Amid criticism of police for not taking the terrorism threat from neo-Nazis as seriously as that from Islamic extremists, Basu said: "We recognise that lives can be destroyed and community cohesion undermined in exactly the same way it can from other forms of extremism."

    Police figures show concerns over potential extreme rightwing radicalisation led to a 73.5% increase in referrals to Prevent last year, compared with the previous 12 months. There were 323 cases referred in 2014-15, increasing to 561 in 2015-16.

    Police say one reason for the increase was the introduction of a duty on those working in public services such as health and education to report concerns.

    Basu said: "UK policing is committed to tackling extremism in all forms and this includes the threat from the extreme right wing. Cases are pursued by our officers with exactly the same level of resource and vigour as other forms of ideology.

    "The vast majority of investigations are led by officers working in the national counter-terrorism network. There have been a number of successful prosecutions over recent years and this is testament to the work of police teams up and down the country."

    Referring to Islamic State by its Arabic acronym, Basu said: "The overriding threat remains from Daesh-inspired groups, but our operations reflect a broader range of dangerous ideologies and we will work tirelessly with our partners to confront them.

    "Within counter-terrorism policing headquarters, there is a national unit that receives intelligence from forces around the country relating to domestic extremist groups. This is assessed daily and the unit works with forces to mitigate the risk.

    "We work with all our communities to inform them about the threats and the role they can play in helping police. Anyone with any concerns is urged to contact their local force."

    Angry white Texas students storm out of class after teacher says humans emerged from Africa

    21 Oct 2016

    A group of white students walked out of a college classroom Tuesday after an anthropology professor said all humans were descended from Africa. As they left, other students in the class began chanting, "Black lives matter," in recognition of the social justice movement protesting racial injustice across the United States. Other students who stayed in the classroom told the professor they were offended and began arguing with their classmates, according to media reports.

    "My Professor just said all living ppl are descendants from Africa and ppl got up and walked out and now their arguing," a student tweeted during the walk-out.

    R. Jon McGee, the professor at Texas State University, focuses on Latin American cultures. "I have worked with the Lacandon Maya since 1980, studying Maya religion, language, and culture. My research work has focused on the Maya, anthropology of religion, culture, theory, and field research methods," his web page reads.

    Students said McGee began his lesson by telling students to pay attention because they were about to have a discussion on race. He then charted the origins of the Black Lives Matter movement, which protests police brutality, and concluded his lesson by noting that all modern humans comes from Africa. McGee explained his lesson to the Tab: "Understanding other peoples’ perspectives is a basic part of cultural anthropology."

    “As a whole, I think the group is open-minded,” McGee added. “Understanding other peoples’ perspectives is a basic part of cultural anthropology.”

    But Justine Lundy, 20, a student in the class said many students did not approve of McGee's lesson. “It was dead silent,” Lundy said, before a student retorted with a “sarcastic ‘sure.'”

    Modern humans did evolve in Africa roughly 200,000 years ago, meaning all non-Africans are descended from people in Africa between 50,000 and 80,000 years ago. They likely left the continent because they needed food after changing rainfall patterns, scientists have said.

    The Anglo white people don't want to accept that they came from "inferior" colored people, they want to think they are the "pure superior " race, despite evidence showing they were a defect from the main population, from their white skin to their blue eyes.

    Statistics Show White Supremacy is a Bigger Threat to the U.S. Than Radical Muslims

    by Keisha Hatchett -October 2, 2015

    Despite what Donald Trump and many other politicians have told you, the major threat to America isn’t Muslim extremism. In fact, statistics show that the real danger lies with domestic extremists who aren’t of the Muslim faith.

    The New York Times reported back in June that since Sept. 11, 2001, almost twice as many people have died at the hands of white supremacists and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims. Using data compiled by New America, a Washington Research center, a study found that 48 people have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim—including the mass killings in Charleston, S.C.—compared to the 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists. However, this does not factor in yesterday’s tragic shooting or less publicized incidents like the Las Vegas couple who murdered two police officers and left a Swastika on one of the bodies.

    These stats reveal a vast difference between public perception and the number of actual cases in which Muslim extremists have claimed American lives. So why aren’t more people outraged about domestic terrorists? Because then we’d have to admit that white supremacy is still a problem.

    While the public hasn't quite caught on yet, scholars say that the issue needs to be addressed. “There’s an acceptance now of the idea that the threat from jihadi terrorism in the United States has been overblown,” Dr. John G. Horgan, who studies terrorism at the University of Massachusetts said. “And there’s a belief that the threat of right-wing, anti-government violence has been underestimated.”

    That’s an understatement.

    Dem Senator: Mostly ‘White Males,’ Not Refugees Have Committed Terrorism In U.S. Since 9/11

    by Pam Key - 19 Nov 2015

    Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) said the right’s “demagoguery” on whether to take in Syrian refugees is not valid because since the Sept. 11, 2001, most domestic terrorist attacks in America have been committed by “white males.”

    Brown said, “I think most of us recognize, we’re concerned but we also know that we trust the FBI and our security forces to do this right. Since the beginning of the Bush administration when we were attacked, September 11, we’ve not had any major terrorist attacks in this country. We’ve had individual crazy people, of normally, they look more like me than they look like Middle Easterners. They are generally white males, who have shot up people in movie theaters and schools. Those are terrorist attacks, they’re just different kinds of terrorists.”

    Brown added, ““Individual people shouldn’t be fearful, because by and large our government, the federal government — people always talk obviously they don’t trust the feds, whatever. The federal government and local communities have done a pretty good job at keeping us safe. Not keeping us safe from crazy gunmen coming into schools and movie theaters sometimes but certainly keeping us safe from foreigners attacking this country.”

    White Christian Terrorist Sentenced, Nobody Notices

    The FBI calls him a 'terrorist.'

    6/19/2015

    Jacksonville resident Jason Woodring, 38, whose meth and Nostradamus-inspired attacks on the Arkansas power grid I wrote about in a cover story, was sentenced to 15 years in prison, having plead guilty to federal charges including destruction of an energy facility, setting fire to a power station, using fire to commit a felony and possession of firearms, ammunition and drugs. He will also be required to pay $4,792,224.06 to Entergy and $48,729.39 to First Electric Cooperative for damage to various downed power lines in 2013.

    Jason Zebulin Woodring was charged with five felonies in Lonoke County and indicted on eight counts by a federal grand jury.

    Among the federal charges Woodring faces, domestic terrorism is the most serious. He appears in this context, as a terrorist, in the FBI's new budget request for 2015. If convicted on the terrorism charge, he'll face life in prison. Mental evaluations were ordered at both the state and federal level, though the state psychologist began his report by noting that Woodring refused to speak during his interview. A federal psychologist was more successful. The evaluation, which was held in Los Angeles, concluded that he doesn't suffer from a mental disorder, that he's fit to understand his charges, stand trial and defend himself.

    Woodring and the examiner talked about his childhood, about the time he cut a boy's hair off with scissors and threatened to throw him out of a window. The report claims that as a child, Woodring "kind of" tortured animals. That with his friends, he would throw mud balls at passing cars, urinate in Laundromat dryers and put " 'nasty things' such as pee, dog feces, vomit, in people's cars who had their windows open." They would "bow hunt and corner animals to do 'bad things' to them."

    N.Y. Klansman gets 30 years in prison for plot vs Muslims, Obama

    by Joseph Ax -19 December 2016

    A self-proclaimed white supremacist convicted on charges he planned to use a "death ray" to kill Muslims and President Barack Obama was sentenced on Monday to 30 years in prison, federal prosecutors in New York said.

    Glendon Scott Crawford, 52, a Navy veteran and a member of the Ku Klux Klan, was found guilty in August 2015 of conspiring with another man to build a radiation dispersal device, dubbed a "death ray" by tabloids.

    Crawford is the first person to be convicted under a law barring attempts to acquire or use a radiological dispersal device, which combines conventional explosives, such as dynamite, with radioactive material. Congress passed the statute in 2004 to punish individuals who try to set off a so-called "dirty bomb."

    U.S. District Judge Gary Sharpe imposed the sentence at a hearing in Albany, prosecutors said in a statement. He was convicted on three counts, including conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.

    Crawford from upstate New York plans to appeal the conviction as well as his sentence, his attorney Danielle Neroni said in a statement. His lawyers argued unsuccessfully at trial that he was entrapped by the government.

    Crawford's co-conspirator, Eric Feight, pleaded guilty in connection with the case and was sentenced to eight years and one month in prison.

    U.S. prosecutors had sought life in prison for Crawford. He faced a mandatory minimum of 25 years. After his release, he will be supervised for life.

    "His plot to murder people he did not know was designed to, in his oft-repeated words, 'take his country back' from government leaders by forcing them to change government conduct he perceived as favoring Muslims," prosecutors wrote in a pre-sentencing court filing.

    Authorities said Crawford, who worked at General Electric Co , carried out extensive research on radiation dispersal devices, learning what level of emission was required to kill humans and conducting reconnaissance on potential targets, including a local mosque.

    In conversations recorded without his knowledge by a confidential law enforcement source, Crawford spoke often of his hatred of Muslims and said he would go after Obama in the White House with the device.

    Defense lawyers wrote in court papers that the device in question was constructed by federal agents and that Crawford never actually intended to use it. "Mr. Crawford maintains that he never intended to endanger human life through the release of radiation or of radioactive nuclides," Neroni wrote.

    Far-right Breitbart 'deliberately twisted' German New Year's Eve mob story into 'fake news'

    Church was not on fire, it was not a 1,000-strong mob and Allahu Akbar is a 'normal' phrase, says German journalist

    by Peter Walker - 6 January 2017



    A local German newspaper has fired back at alt-right news website Breitbart for twisting its reports of minor New Year’s Eve violence into “fake news”.

    The right-wing American website, which enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence in 2016, claimed a 1,000-strong mob chanting “Allahu Akbar” set fire to the country’s oldest church in Dortmund.

    But a Dortmund paper, which carried the original report, suggests these facts, including a claim that an Isis-affiliated flag was being waved, are wildly inaccurate.

    Police have since described the night as “average to quiet” and said Dortmund New Year’s Eve incidents were down from 421 to 185 on last year.

    “Foreign media and users of social networks on the internet used our online reports for fake news, hatred and propaganda,” said Ruhr Nachrichten editor Peter Bandermann.

    The Breitbart report, published on Tuesday, claimed “fireworks were launched” at St Reinolds church in Leeds Square which set the roof alight.

    It also claimed that “fireworks were hurled at a group of homeless people” and that a Free Syrian Army flag was waved.

    Mr Bandermann on the other hand, in a Q&A-style response published the following day, said that from between 6.45pm and 1.30am, groups of young foreign men formed a large group of 1,000 people.

    He said the fire at the church only set light to netting surrounding the building and lasted just 12 minutes.

    Only one person – singular – was accused of hitting a homeless man with a firework.

    The flag, being waved by a group reportedly celebrating the war-torn country’s ceasefire, is often adopted in general opposition to President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

    Mr Bandermann, who was sent pictures of severed heads and a gallows in the aftermath of his paper’s New Year’s Eve coverage, also singled out Austrian news website Wochenblick as having distorted reporting.

    He said that saying Allahu Akbar is as normal as saying ‘Amen’ in church, adding: “Fake news producers compare these people from Leeds Square to the assassins of Munich, Würzburg and the priest murderer in France.

    “The fact is, there were no signs that terrorists were celebrating in Dortmund.”

    Journalist Alexander Becker, writing in an online media industry publication, said: "The report is a lesson on the deliberate twisting of facts."

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has previously said: “We must confront this phenomenon [of fake news] and if necessary, regulate it.”

    The disruption in Dortmund, which saw 43 people injured compared to 52 on the night last year, followed around 1,000 women claiming to have been sexually assaulted in Cologne and Hamburg on New Year’s Eve 2015.

    Breitbart has become the notorious platform for the so-called alt-right, an extreme right-wing movement that some claim promotes racist and white nationalist ideology.

    Its headlines have included, “There’s no hiring bias against women in tech, they just suck at interviews” and “Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy”.

    Formerly chaired by Donald Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon, and edited by Nigel Farage aide Raheem Kassam in London, it has been quick itself to accuse other outlets of promoting fake news.

    Breitbart.com’s unique visitors increased 124 per cent to 17m in December 2015, according to ComScore, and then up to 37m according to Breitbart themselves in October 2016.

    Extremist White Christian Americans poke Trump to move faster on Muslim crackdown

    They are already frustrated the president has prioritized other executive actions during his first week.

    01.2017

    Conservative and far-right activists devoted to battling “radical Islam” may feel empowered now that Donald Trump is president, but they are already impatient he hasn’t yet delivered on their controversial agenda.

    Less than a week after Trump took office, such activists and like-minded affiliates are hectoring him to immediately restrict immigration from Muslim countries. They are calling for an end to the resettlement of Syrian refugees. They’re insisting he designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group.

    And they don't understand why it's taking him so long.

    “He said he would do it on day one. No sign of anything happening today, on day 4, and it sure looks like his White House doesn’t even have refugees on its radar,” activist Ann Corcoran wrote about Trump's proposed Syrian refugee ban on the website Refugee Resettlement Watch.

    Since taking office Friday, Trump has issued several executive actions, including ones that pull the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and institute a hiring freeze on much of the federal workforce. A source familiar with the matter said late Tuesday that Trump plans to issue several executive actions on immigration on Wednesday, including one related to sanctuary cities. It was not clear whether any of the actions would deal with Trump’s pledges to crack down on Muslim immigration, and even if they do, it remains to be seen whether the details will satisfy the anti-Islamist crowd.

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer, when pushed Tuesday on the question about Muslims and immigration, suggested Trump may hold off on any moves until his nominee for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, is confirmed and weighs in. However, liberal and American Muslim networks are preparing for worst-case scenarios, including all-out prohibitions on entry from visitors based on nationality, a full ban on Syrian refugees, and a possible halt to the resettlement of all refugees.

    “Given what Donald Trump said throughout his campaign about his plans to put a halt to all Muslims entering the country, we have to be realistic about the kinds of proposals that could be on the table right now,” said Tom Jawetz, vice president of immigration policy at the Center for American Progress.

    Democratic lawmakers on the Hill, too, are awaiting the specifics of whatever Trump may propose. A Senate Democratic aide said the minority party would likely back lawsuits over any action that appears to single out a religious group, even if it’s not formally stated as doing so, and especially if it could entangle U.S. citizens.

    “We are hearing the concerns and rumors from advocates, and are taking them very seriously,” the aide said in an email. “Since it sounds like this is treading into religious territory and the administration has been less than unequivocal about whether any Americans might get caught up in any of this, outside groups could likely make equal protection or establishment clause (religious freedom) claims.”

    Stopping the spread of radical Islamism was one of the dominant themes of Trump’s presidential campaign. Not only did he promise to eradicate the Islamic State terrorist group — an issue on which he has bipartisan support — he also vowed to crack down on the spread of Islamist ideology within the United States.

    As refugees escaping the turmoil in Syria flowed into Europe in 2015, Trump insisted that the United States could not admit any such Syrians because they might be terrorists. After terrorist attacks in Paris and California later that year, Trump proposed an all-out ban on Muslims entering the United States, a proposal he later tweaked to “extreme vetting” of immigrants from countries affected by terrorism.

    Trump also has floated the idea of reestablishing a registry of U.S.-based foreigners that largely targeted Muslims. While he hasn’t said much about the Muslim Brotherhood per se, some of his aides have floated the theory that the decades-old Islamist group has already infiltrated the U.S government.


    Trump has also surrounded himself with aides who have spoken out so harshly against Islamist-inspired extremism that Muslim-American leaders have cast them as “Islamophobes” bigoted against Muslims in general. Those advisers include Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser; Steve Bannon, his chief strategist in the White House; and Mike Pompeo, the new CIA director.

    But the presence of such advisers in Trump's orbit has elated anti-Islamist activists — many of whom were seen as fringe figures even during the Republican administration of George W. Bush. Such activists were disappointed that Bush did not speak out more forcefully against ideological extremism within the religion of Islam itself. Bush and former President Barack Obama also both opted to avoid using the label “Islam” when discussing terrorism, arguing that casting the fight as a religious war would merely boost terrorist outfits' ability to recruit disaffected young Muslims.

    Now, U.S.-based anti-Islamist activists see the Trump era as a way to gain credibility and followers.

    One such organization is ACT for America, which bills itself as a grass-roots network dedicated to protecting American culture. The Southern Poverty Law Center has branded ACT for America an anti-Muslim hate group. Flynn, the man tasked with overseeing Trump’s National Security Council, has served on ACT for America’s board of advisers, and other Trump administration officials are affiliated with the group.

    In an email to supporters in the weeks after Trump’s stunning win on Nov. 8, the network’s leader, Brigitte Gabriel, boasted that, “ACT for America has a direct line to Donald Trump, and has played a fundamental role in shaping his views and suggested policies with respect to radical Islam.”

    Many of the anti-Islamist activists, however, are not content to simply hope that Trump will keep his campaign promises.

    The day before Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration, a freshly formed alliance of anti-Islamist religious figures calling themselves “Faith Leaders for America” held a launch event in which they repeatedly called on Trump to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

    “We’d be very disappointed if they don’t do it,” Jerry Johnson, a member of the Faith Leaders’ steering team, told POLITICO. “We’re getting signals that they will do it. What we wanted to do is fortify them. We want to encourage them that they are actually faith leaders out there, pastors, rabbis, who would support that kind of decision.”

    KING: If you want to stop mass shootings in America, consider banning white men



    On this past Sunday, in a bit of tongue-in-cheek hyperbole, I tweeted that if our country truly wanted to ban a demographic in the name of halting mass shootings, it would be best to ban white people. After all, white people, white men to be particular, and not African-Americans or Latinos or immigrants or Muslims are responsible for the overwhelming majority of America's mass shootings.


    What I really wanted to see, though, was whether or not the mention of such a ban would irritate the very conservatives whose candidate of choice, Donald Trump, has repeatedly called for such a ban on Muslim immigrants when the truth is that only one Muslim immigrant has ever participated in the 30 deadliest mass shootings in modern American history.


    Banning Muslim immigrants would hardly stop any mass shootings in this country. If stopping mass shootings is the goal — and banning people is how we do such a thing — then a good old ban of white men would undoubtedly be the most effective way to handle things.


    Of course, it rattled a lot of folks. It was meant to. It was also meant to reveal the hypocrisy of just how willing one group is to get behind such a ban when they don't think it would impact them, but completely go bonkers when you suggest they be banned instead.


    Immediately the conservative tweets and blogs starting rolling in calling me a bigot, or a racist, and saying I was outrageous for proposing such an idea. Suddenly, when it was them being banned, the idea was incomprehensible, disgusting and infuriating. For just a brief moment they experienced just a tiny bit of the reality of what it must feel like to have someone say you or loved ones should be banned. Except I'm not the Republican nominee for President.


    Banning people, any people, from this nation, is the dumbest, most bigoted, ridiculous notion ever proposed. I completely agree.


    It's simply not how it works. We're not Nazis. Isolating a group of people because of their religion, nationality, ethnicity or sexual orientation and banning them, in the name of safety or security or anything else, is a recipe for disaster.

    However, the logic of my point remains. People calling for a ban on Muslim immigrants aren't interested in stopping mass shootings. They aren't interested in making this country safer. They're just bigots and bigots always need a target. Before it was Muslims or Mexicans or immigrants, the list of who angry white men despised and wanted to kill or relocate en masse has been well populated for hundreds of years.

    Korean Grandma Allegedly Assaulted by Woman Screaming ‘White Power’ in L.A.

    2.2.2017



    Video footage of the attacker, Alexis Duvall, was captured by a witness after the incident as she ran off and was uploaded on YouTube. Duvall is heard yelling a racial slur and swearing as she continued to run away from bystanders after she attacked the elderly Korean woman.



    Update [2-2-17 5:45 p.m. PST] The attacker initially told police her name was Patty Garcia, but a fingerprint scan confirmed her identity as Alexis Duvall, according to the L.A. Times.


    UPDATE [2-2-17 4:50 p.m. PST]: The attacker has been identified as 27-year-old Los Angeles resident Patty Garcia who, on Feb. 1 at 2:40 p.m., assaulted the 83-year-old victim (whose name was not released) at the corner of 3rd and Western in downtown L.A. Garcia is now being held on $50,000 bail for felony battery (Booking# 4897282) according to Officer Drake Madison of the LAPD Media Relations.


    Officer Madison also made it clear that the case is currently not being investigated as a hate crime and any details surrounding the attacker yelling “white power” after hitting the victim are not included in the current official report and may still be subject to the ongoing investigation into the incident.

    The Asian community is up in arms after one woman posted a photo of an elderly Korean woman on the street next to a splatter of blood who was allegedly, for no apparent reason, hit in the head by a Caucasian woman who screamed “white power” and attempted to run off.



    In a lengthy post on Facebook (that has since been removed), a user identified as Linda Lee criticized the U.S. President (without using the name Trump) for encouraging a culture of “hatred and negativity” in the country. The post was a response to the violent incident she witnessed on the streets of Los Angeles on February 1.





    Together with the photo attached to the post, Lee narrated what happened and expressed her opinion on the matter.








    Lee reported that an old Korean lady was hit in the face by a Caucasian female who shouted “white power!” as she ran off. Her companion, identified as Chong Lee, followed the assailant, called the police, and waited until the attacker was arrested by LAPD officers of the Olympic division.


    “She walked by the korean grandma, yelled, ‘White power!’ and ran off. Thank goodness Chong followed the female for 6 blocks while calling the police and stayed with her until he saw her get arrested.”



    In the same post, Lee revealed her fears about the safety of her very own grandmother who has been legally living in America with a U.S. passport for more than 30 years.


    “She’s very independent and insists that she continues to live in their apartment by herself because she doesn’t want to burden any of us to take care of her. It scares me that this situation can easily happen to my grandma while she’s waiting for the bus or walking to/from the bus stop to her home or work,” Lee said.

    Tension around scenarios like this have only become more prevalent after Donald Trump won the presidential election. Every speech about deportation and division only creates a sense of entitlement for groups of angry and fearful people ready to take down those they deem “un-American.”


    Trump’s recent declaration of a visa ban for seven predominantly Islamic countries along with other changes in U.S. immigration policies have further fueled the uproar ignited last year.



    “It angers me that people think that he allows them to feel powerful and bully others who are ‘different’ from themselves,” Lee emphasized. “Please don’t spread the hate and ignorance displayed by someone who truly doesn’t deserve the power he has come into.”



    The elderly woman sustained a one-inch cut on her forehead but will survive. The original poster, Linda Lee, hit back at critics of the story who called it “fake news” saying:


    “For those of you who think this is fake news, it’s absolutely real. Just because you can’t find any official news reports of it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. I have absolutely no reason to create a fake story. I posted this to voice my opinion about how our country is going through really difficult times.”

    Why Isn't Anyone Talking About The Radicalization of Whites?

    Many of my white friends have become Radicalized

    by Johnny Silvercloud - 10/12/2016

    What do white people got to be so angry about? ~ Chris Rock

    A while back ago I spoke in great pain on how I’m losing friends fighting racism. I talked about how one can have friends (white) who will invite you (black person) to a Christmas dinner, but will engage in vehicular manslaughter when it comes to Black Lives Matter protesters. What I didn’t really discuss was this radicalization process among the white community in America which makes such violent ideas possible.

    Radicalization? You probably never really took a look at it. You’re probably wondering what am I talking about. Radicalization? What radicalization?

    Radicalization of the White American



    To the left is a photograph I took of a white woman, bowing down to Donald Trump during the Tucson Trump rally in March 2016.

    To put this into perspective, I do a lot of political/protest rallies as a street photographer. Out of the thousands of photos I’ve ever taken, I never seen anything like this in a political rally before in my life. The crazy thing about this photo is the fact that it was difficult to get anything like this. You see, the photography is tightly controlled in a Trump rally. They are NOT media friendly. The bigger take away here is the fact that this is is categorically odd to capture at a political rally.

    As Donald Trump continued to validate the claims of white supremacists, Americanized Nazis, and other racists, I always think of this photo. When Richard Spencer held an Americanized Nazi rally in Washington D.C. and mainstream (whitestream?) media attempted to romanticize the alt-right, I thought of this photo.

    I think of this photo a lot. As a black abolitionist, I never really stop to think about what does white supremacist ideologies and propaganda feels like to a white person. When it comes to that question this photo says plenty.

    The structure and ideologies of white supremacy must be very comfortable. I would imagine that it feels good to know that you are infinitely above suspicion when it comes to any form of social deviance, including crime. It probably feels soothing to know that no matter what, a white person will NEVER have to answer for the behavior of other whites. I’ll go as far as suggesting that white people may get a sad level of satisfaction in hearing non-white people talk, discuss, protest all these things that nonwhites suffer from due to white supremacy. To hear that for example, people in Africa and Asia engage in skin bleaching to look like you — the white person — may be the source of a sick level of pride. Yes, we never think of it as people of color. But the notion that people in Asia actually go through elective surgery and cut their eyes open to look more white probably fuels a cold-blooded smirk of satisfaction inside of many white people as a whole.

    Sure, to a black person this level of pride is sick and disgusting. But to a white person, all of this — white supremacy, white privilege, white defaultness — is simply, the way. All of this is simply the way things are. While these things are largely invisible in (white) American society, these things are in fact known and understood.

    Being that these things are understood by white America, imagine if a person comes by who promise to practically, maintain and rejuvenate white supremacy? What happens when you have websites dedicated to taking the job of J. Edger Hoover, slandering those who are oppressed? What happens when you have mainstream media forever angelicizing white criminals, all while demonizing black victims of crime? What happens when the government who remained callous to minority drug offenders began softening up laws when heroin strikes white neighborhoods? What happens when whites are allowed to have guns, but nonwhites are not?

    What takes place is a caste system within a society. Currently, America is NOT one reality for all. You cannot argue that we live in an equal society if a police officer can murder me and attempt to place false evidence by my body, and not be convicted.

    White Radicalization is a Reality

    With an intricate collective of white supremacist websites, blogs, message board forums and conservative pundits, glued together with conspiracy theories and disinformation campaigns (which guides stupid whites into kinetic action), we are now facing a moment in modern history where white people are now becoming radicalized into white supremacy at an alarming rate. Where a man named Barry Goldwater campaigned as a blatant white supremacist and failed, Donald Trump did the same and succeeded. Nazis think they can wear suits and nice haircuts and do Nazi salutes downtown Washington D.C.

    Some of the friends I’ve lost, the white ones, now dance with the devil when it comes to the white radicalization process. I’ve noticed this when Obama was in office. One white male I’ve known for the Army years had a friend call me an Obama lover, which contextually sounds like ****** lover. Honestly, the guy is so stupid it’s not a serious loss. Other white friends ROUTINELY share racist, bigoted propaganda on social media, with them actually taking refuge in racism, saying things with a false sense of shielding sarcasm, like:

    “…but that would make me racist huh?”

    “I’m gonna have to be racist…”

    “….race baiting…”

    If you were to look at the social media accounts of these radicalized white men, you’d think that American police forces are infallible, devoid of corruption — but federal (non-conservative) politicians are full of lies and deception. The list could go on.

    Years ago, I wrote this one column I called the Four Fears. The Four Fears were a set of fears I believe what drives white anxiety concerning white privilege and race relations as a whole. At the end of this old column I stated that whites will either realize that diversity isn’t a bad thing and we are all the same regardless, or they will radicalize and fight tooth and nail to maintain white privilege and restore white supremacy. I fear we are now looking at the latter.

    America will talk all day about radical Islam and radical black speakers and writers. No one ever thinks to talk about white radicalization, which is a unique danger we’ve seen on this planet before.

    Anyway, I do believe that there should be a discussion on this white radicalization process taking place. That conversation will have to be brutally honest. If this discussion doesn’t take place, feel free to catch up on fascism, because it’s what follows next.

    Donald Trump administration 'wants to cut white supremacism from counter-extremism program'

    Plans reportedly underway to rename Countering Violent Extremism program to 'Countering Radical Islamic Extremism'

    by Lizzie Dearden - 2/2/2017

    Donald Trump’s administration is reportedly pushing to erase neo-Nazis and white supremacists from the US government’s counter-extremism program by moving it to focus exclusively on Islamist terrorism.

    American officials briefed on the proposed changes told Reuters the Countering Violent Extremism (DVE) initiative could be renamed to “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism”.

    The reclassification would remove its work combating far-right attacks and mass shootings, such as the
    massacre of black churchgoers in Charleston, which are rarely classified as terrorism by American authorities.

    “Violent extremist threats come from a range of groups and individuals, including domestic terrorists and homegrown violent extremists in the United States, as well as international terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and Isil (Isis),” reads the current description of CVE on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website.

    But Mr Trump’s rhetoric has focused exclusively on the dangers of “radical Islam”, seeing him criticise Barack Obama for being “weak” on Isis.

    The position sparked his executive order suspending the US refugee program and immigration from seven predominantly Muslim “countries of concern”.

    The President claimed the move would prevent “bad dudes” coming to the US, despite the fact countries linked to previous terror attacks were not on the list, as well as warnings the “Muslim ban” would fuel propaganda efforts by Isis and other jihadi groups.


    Terrorism is defined in the US Code of Federal Regulations as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    The definition, used by the FBI and other American agencies, does not specify any groups and encapsulates all extremism from Islamism to anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism.

    MI5, the UK’s domestic security agency, admits that there is “no agreed definition of terrorism internationally”, while the Terrorism Act 2000 defines it as violent threats or action “for the purposes of advancing a political, religious, racial or ideological cause”.

    The DHS and White House did not respond to requests for comment.

    Comments:
    "Islamist", "Islamism", "Jihadi" are words invented by these people. There are no such words. A person is a Muslim and not an "Islamist". They invented that word because they knew their minions are too stupid to use Islam and Muslims.

    White Supremacist Who 'Planned Racist Dylann Roof-Style Massacre' Not Charged Under Terrorism Laws

    Exclusive: Benjamin Thomas Samuel McDowell arrested after illegally buying gun with plan for mass shooting 'against non-whites'

    by May Bulman - 2/17/2017



    A man who plotted to carry out an attack "in the style of Dylann Roof" has been arrested - but not charged under any terrorism laws.

    Benjamin Thomas Samuel McDowell, 29, was detained by the FBI in South Carolina on Wednesday for illegally buying a gun with the intention of carrying out a mass shooting "against non-whites". He was charged with possession of a fire arm.

    First assistant US attorney Lance Crick, who is working on the case, told The Independent that despite evidence of his intention to carry out an act of terrorism, Mr McDowell has at present not been charged under any terrorism law.

    According to an affidavit from the FBI that was filed in federal court, Mr McDowell had told an undercover FBI agent he was interested in "doing something on a f***ing big scale" and writing "in the spirit of Dylann Roof" on the wall of the building where he would commit the killings. Roof was sentenced to death in January for killing nine black churchgoers in Charleston.

    The document, which is in the public domain, states that Mr McDowell had "established White Supremacy Extremist connections while serving prison sentences in South Carolina for various criminal offenses," adding that his "tattoos on his extremities indicated his affiliation with the WSE (white supremacist extremists)".

    In the months leading up to his arrest, Mr McDowell had reportedly posted a number of anti-Semitic messages on Facebook, including on the page of Temple Emanu-El Conservative Synagogue in Myrtle Beach, accusing Jews of plotting to wipe out the white race.

    According to the FBI affidavit, on 5 January Mr McDowell wrote on Facebook: "All they wanna do is stay loaded on drugs the Jews put here to destroy white man and they fest on the drugs", and went on to chastise other white supremacists for not having "the heart to fight for Yahweh like Dylann Roof". A day later he reportedly posted that he was looking to buy a gun.

    The FBI had been monitoring Mr McDowell's activity, and he was subsequently intercepted by an undercover agent posing as someone who "handled problems for the Aryan Nations" under the pretence that he was selling him a firearm. Mr. McDowell then expressed his desire to carry out the "mass shooting".

    Appearing before a federal magistrate court on Thursday, Mr McDowell was charged for a violation of "possessing of a firearm and ammunition by a prohibited person".

    A statement from the District of South Carolina attorney's office read: "McDowell was arrested for a violation of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a prohibited person, a violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 922(g)(1)."

    Mr McDowell remains in custody, with a detention hearing scheduled for 21 February.

    It comes shortly after Mr Trump said in a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanhayu that he would “stand with Israel in the struggle against terrorism”, saying the US had “a long history of cooperation in the fight against terrorism”.

    During his inauguration speech in January, Mr Trump focused attention on taking a hard-line stance against “radical Islamic terrorism”, saying the US would unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.”

    The President has recently caused anger after failing to make a public statement following the shooting of six Muslims by a white supremacist at a mosque in Quebec.

    Donald Trump Remains Silent As White Men Continue To Terrorize America

    by Shaun King - February 17, 2017

    A Florida man was arrested Thursday for a plot to plant bombs in Target stores up and down the East Coast. He had already made at least 10 improvised explosive devices and planned to disguise them in food packaging. He had already paid someone $10,000 to support him in the endeavor, but the partner opted to call police instead of going through with the plan. This man was in the final stage of implementing this attack.

    Strangely, though, Donald Trump, his co-President Steve Bannon, Mike Pence, or Steve Miller haven't said a thing about this attack. You and I both know why.



    Mark Charles Barnett

    This man isn't a Muslim. He isn't a refugee. He isn't an immigrant. He isn't tan or brown or black. He's white. And by virtue of his white skin, he pretty much gets a pass from the Trump administration.


    And all of us know, good and well, if this man was a Muslim, if his name was Ahmed instead of Mark, if he was from Yemen or Syria instead of Florida, Trump would've had an explosive impromptu press conference on the matter. If this man was just a shade or two darker, Trump would be midway through a tweetstorm on just how dangerous people like this man are.

    But, Mark Charles Barnett is not a Muslim. He is not from one of the countries on Trump's ridiculous ban list, he did not arrive in the United States as a refugee fleeing war. Nah, Mark Charles Barnett is a good ol' American - born and bred here.

    Not only that, but, according to ABC News, Barnett "was already on probation and wearing a court-ordered GPS monitor for a number of felony offenses, including kidnapping, multiple counts of sexual battery with a weapon or force and grand theft."

    Again, if this man was anything other than a white man from Florida, he'd be used as an example of how the criminal justice system failed
    to protect us from dangerous thugs and criminals. We'd be hearing about how men like him should've never been let out of jail or prison in the first place.

    But here's the thing: Mark Barnett is not the only white man with a deep criminal record who was arrested for plotting a deadly attack on American soil. Benjamin McDowell, who had known ties to white supremacist gangs from his time in prison, was just arrested for planning an attack "in the spirit of Dylann Roof." Roof, as you no doubt recall, was a white supremacist who shot and killed nine black churchgoers in a Charleston, S.C., church in 2015. That attack was the deadliest hate crime against African-Americans in at least 80 years.

    Again though, stone silence from Donald Trump and his team on the arrest of McDowell.



    Benjamin McDowell

    Can we be real? If two different Muslim men, particularly two Muslim men with records of violence anywhere in the world, were arrested in a span of 48 hours for plotting two different attacks like this, it would be the new conservative obsession. Alex Jones, Breitbart, Rush Limbaugh, and every single member of the Trump administration would be out in front of the issue and using it to justify every bigoted ban and policy they could think of.

    And the only reason we don't have that right now is because these men are white. I feel ridiculous for having to say this, because it should be obvious, but that's wrong. It's wrong that the President, his staff, and his most vocal supporters, in and out of the media, are virtually silent about the arrests of Mark Barnett and Benjamin McDowell. That these bad men, and that's what they were and are, have been given such a pass from the Trump administration, when we all know that if they fit virtually any other profile, that they'd be plastered all over the news, and all over Twitter timelines and Facebook pages, is wrong.

    What about their families and friends? Are they going to be investigated? Are these men Christians? Are they Trump supporters? Are they a part of a broader network? We'll likely never hear anymore about them. That's what white privilege does.
    It even protects these men, and their families, from the deep scrutiny that would inevitably befall any Muslim or immigrants or refugees had they been implicated in a plot for mass murder and mayhem.

    This is America. 2017.

    White nationalists are posting "Imagine a Muslim-free America" fliers on college campuses

    By Sarah Harvard - February 14, 2017


    Anti-Muslim fliers affiliated with the American Vanguard, a white nationalist organization, have appeared on college campuses across the United States.

    Students from the University of Texas at Austin, University of Central Florida and Rutgers University tweeted photos of a flier reading "Imagine a Muslim-free America." The flier was in black and white with a silhouette of the twin towers depicted in the background. American Vanguard's Texas group has taken credit for the posters at UT-Austin.



    The University of Texas at Austin released a statement on Tumblr notifying students that the fliers were removed since it was defacing the campus property.

    "The university vigorously supports free speech, but posting signs of any nature on the outside of university buildings is not allowed under campus rules," the statement read.

    Sarah Khan, a senior at the University of Texas, expressed frustration at the university's response, noting that it did not explicitly condemn the fliers nor did it offer support or resources to students who felt affected by the incident.



    "UT-Austin's message was trash," Khan said in an email. "This was a great way to tell their Muslim students that they really don't give a **** about their safety. UT cares more about their property being destroyed than the lives of their students."

    UT-Austin has not yet responded to Mic's request for comment.

    Azmia Magane, a Muslim alumna of the University of Central Florida, said she believes American Vanguard is advocating for the genocide of Muslims living in the U.S.

    "These are not benign 'free speech' fliers," Magane said in an email. "This is targeted hate speech against Muslims. There's only two ways that America would ever be 'Muslim-free.' These posters are literally calling for the removal of Muslims from their homes, followed by subsequent deportation - a so-called 'peaceful' cleansing - or genocide. That is violent."

    Magane said she reached out to American Vanguard's merchandise provider. Jacob Shaffer, CEO of INeedMerch.com, responded to Magane informing her that the group is no longer his client.

    "[American Vanguard] is not currently a client," Shaffer wrote to Magane. "They ran a campaign a long time ago and haven't done so again. They are not a current client and do not have any merchandise on our site for purchase."

    After defending American Vanguard's right to free speech, Shaffer asked Magane to delete her tweets about the posters in question. Shaffer has not yet responded to Mic's request for comment.

    Jim Sues, the executive director of the Council of American Islamic Relations' New Jersey chapter, urges Rutgers University to take prompt action in condemning fliers and to protect the first amendment rights of its students.

    "The hate and bigotry exhibited in this poster cannot be tolerated," Sues said in an email. "All Americans must be able to practice their faith and worship as they choose without fear of harassment or intimidation. The diversity of the student body at Rutgers University has long been a source of pride and inspiration, and the university administration must not allow narrow minded bigots to tarnish its reputation and intimidate its students."

    A Rutgers University-New Brunswick spokesperson told Mic the fliers were removed after several students expressed distress over the fliers.

    "The contents of the flyer, which was also posted elsewhere nationwide, violate the values and ideals for which Rutgers stands," the spokesman said in an email. "We strongly condemn this kind of speech and are appalled that our Muslim community was targeted in this way."



    Magane said these posters should prompt the Southern Poverty Law Center to designate the American Vanguard as a hate group before it radicalizes individuals to harm marginalized communities in the U.S.

    "It was groups like this that radicalized Dylann Roof," Magane said, noting the rhetoric - including sentiments espoused by Donald Trump - emboldens "white terrorism" and detrimental policies to Muslims and immigrant communities. "If some of America didn't see these things as a problem before, they should now. America cannot deny white supremacy and its violent extremism anymore. It's written in black and white on a poster: 'Imagine a Muslim-free America.'"

    White Supremacist Shoots 2 Indian-Americans After Mistaking Them for Arabs

    An Olathe, Kansas white man gunned down two Indian-Americans because he thought they were Middle Eastern yesterday, killing one and wounding another. A bystander attempting to defend the victims was also wounded.

    Witnesses reported hearing Adam Purington, 51, shout “Get out of my country!” before shooting at two Indian-Americans in an Austin’s Bar & Grill. The two victims were employees of the Aviation Systems Engineering team for the American tech company Garmin.

    One report alleges that Purington had previously been kicked out of the bar for saying racial slurs, and then came back with a gun.

    Purington was arrested five hours later, after confiding to an Applebee’s bartender that he had just killed two Middle Eastern men and needed a place to hide out. The bartender quickly contacted the police.

    Purington has since been charged with first degree murder and is being held on a $100,000 bail.

    No surprise here. The "foreigners" are the educated who are running this country and the ones against them are these white terrorist trash who only leach off of these foreigners' taxes and achievements.

    Donald Trump is right, there was a recent attack in Sweden. By neo-Nazis on a refugee centre

    US President could have been referring to largely underreported 'politically motivated' incident in Gothenburg

    by Lucy Pasha-Robinson - 2/19/2017

    The world reacted with confusion after Donald Trump cited a Swedish terrorist attack during a campaign-style rally in Florida that appeared never to have happened.

    One of the country's official Twitter accounts, controlled by a different citizen each week, said: "Nothing has happened here in Sweden. There has not [been] any terrorist attacks here. At all."

    However, despite widespread debunking of his claims, it has since emerged a largely underreported attack did, in fact, occur last month.

    Three suspected neo-Nazis were arrested in January after a Gothenburg Asylum centre became the target of a homemade bomb attack, leaving one person seriously injured.

    Security services said all three suspects had previously been members of the Nordic Resistance Movement (NMR), a group that openly promotes racist and anti-Semitic views and has vocally opposed non-white immigration to the country.

    The Swedish intelligence service Säpo said the incident on 5 January, which was also linked to two others in Gothenburg in recent months, appeared to be politically motivated.

    The NMR was set up in 1997 by former members of the White Aryan Resistance and employees of Folktribunen, a neo-National socialist magazine. The group is considered as the figurehead for Sweden's white power movement.

    Sweden took in more refugees per capita than any other European country in 2016, which Mr Trump cited in his speech as creating problems "they never thought possible."

    The former real-estate mogul focused on migration in Europe and linked it to terror attacks in Brussels, Nice and Paris - before adding Sweden to the list.

    "We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden," he told supporters in Melbourne.

    "Who would believe this? Sweden! They took in large numbers, they're having problems like they never thought possible."

    It came as a 2016 report found immigration had helped fuel Sweden's biggest economic boom in five years.

    Donald Trump appears to invent Sweden terror attack during Florida rally speech


    President renews attacks on 'dishonest media'


    by Jon Sharman - 2/19/2017

    Donald Trump appeared to invent a terrorist attack in Sweden during a campaign-style rally in Florida.

    On an evening during which he attacked the news media and the judges who ruled against his travel ban, Mr Trump used his speech to talk about migration in Europe and linked it to terror attacks in Brussels, Nice and Paris - before inexplicably adding Sweden to the list.

    Mr Trump told supporters in Melbourne: "We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden.

    "Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what's happening in Brussels. You look at what's happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris."

    One of the country's official Twitter accounts, controlled by a different citizen each week, reacted with bafflement.

    Its current administrator, a school librarian, said: "Nothing has happened here in Sweden. There has not [been] any terrorist attacks here. At all."

    What Mr Trump's remark referred to in unclear, but it came after Fox News aired an interview with filmmaker Ami Horowitz, whose latest documentary examines whether high crime rates in areas of the country is attributable to its previous open-door migration policy.




    The President promised new action on immigration in the coming days. "We don't give up. We will never give up. We have a court we disagree with," he said, making remarks about the judiciary similar to those his supreme court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, had called "disheartening" and "demoralising" only a week before.

    Young White Men Are Being Radicalized. It's Time To Talk About It

    As Trump pitches fight against 'Islamic terrorists', where is the alarm over disenfranchised men being lured into white supremacist movements?

    by Mat Nashed - 10 February 2017

    White supremacy swept to power the day Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. His most ardent supporters championed him across the world. For them, Trump signaled the resurgence of white male dominance and they weren't ashamed to celebrate it.

    Their influence is growing. Following Trump's executive order to ban citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the US - a decree overturned by federal courts - white nationalists took to Reddit to express their joy. Trump, it seemed, was the real deal.

    One user even said that he was so proud of Trump that he couldn't possibly "raise his right arm any higher" - a reference to the Nazi salute.

    These posts aren't anecdotal. The Southern Poverty Law Center has documented 1,094 hate-related incidences in the US since the first month of Trump's election victory. In 37 percent of all cases, there was a direct reference to Trump or something he said.

    The SPLC has also counted 892 hate groups in the US, the clear majority of which espouse white supremacist views.

    Many of these movements are active on gaming networks and internet forums such as Stormfront, which has become a breeding ground for far right-wing extremists.

    Now, the White House is presenting racism as an acceptable ideology, resulting in the radicalization of young white men across the world.

    It's time we talk about it.

    The face of Fascism

    Richard Spencer is a self-declared "white nationalist" who founded the Alt-Right - Alternative Right - movement in 2010. He has recently kicked off a tour of college campuses to recruit new members who are disillusioned with the Republican political establishment.

    At its core, the Alt-Right claims to protect white people from an unfolding "cultural genocide" perpetrated by the empowerment of feminists and people of color. But who is supposed to protect everybody else from bigots like Spencer?

    In 2015, the FBI reported that out of the 2,125 hate crime offenses recorded against blacks, white people were the perpetrators 58 percent of the time. Whites, on the other hand, were victims in only 10 percent of the total of 5,850 reported incidences.

    Meanwhile, Muslims experienced a 67 percent increase in hate crimes directed towards them in the same time frame. Anti-Semitic attacks remained the most frequent.

    The real figures could be much higher since many states don't report hate crimes to the FBI. That's only part of the problem. The fact the White House is propagating hate speech is more worrying.

    Lecia Brooks, the outreach director for SPLC, said that their center has started a program on college campuses to try and safeguard young white men from radicalization. She also emphasized the importance of engaging with Republican groups who sponsor talks by people like Spencer.

    "[Minorities] are very concerned with the increase of anti-Semitism and anti-feminism," Lecia told MEE.

    "[America] just can't afford to backtrack on these things. [SPLC] is speaking on campuses all the time and speaking to administrators as well."

    Fact or fiction?

    Despite the efforts of groups like SPLC, propaganda is difficult to counter.

    Last year, Breitbart News - an Alt-Right outlet that Trump promoted during his campaign - experienced a considerable spike in traffic from 13 million to 19 million visitors.

    Such platforms and the leaders who endorse them are radicalizing people beyond the US
    . That much was clear after a white French-Canadian student stepped into an Islamic Cultural Center late last month and killed six men for no reason other than their faith.

    It was later revealed that the shooter supported Trump and the far-right French politician Marine Le Pen.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the killing a terrorist attack. However, the resurgence of Nazi aspirations hasn't compelled governments to seriously ponder how to safeguard young white men from extremism - unlike the hysteria that follows people of color and Muslims when a crime is committed in their name.

    That trend is certain to continue. Donald Trump's administration is already pushing to remove neo-Nazis and white supremacists from the US governmment's counter-extremism program. Instead, they want to concentrate solely on "Islamic terrorists" and change the name of the program from 'Countering Violent Extremism' to 'Countering Radical Islamic Extremism'.

    Never mind an FBI report, written more than 10 years ago, that warned about white supremacists groups infiltrating local and state law enforcement. The disturbing truth is that they won't have to look over their shoulder as long as Trump is in charge.

    If only the same can be said about young black men who continue to be profiled, harassed and killed by the police.

    The banality of Trump

    Many Trump supporters, while understandably fed up with the corrupt political establishment, failed to combat the bigotry of their candidate.

    His campaign catered to the most extreme prejudices of white America. The nation's racist past appeared to be an afterthought for his supporters. Not much has changed in the first weeks of his presidency.

    The latest Reuters opinion poll reported that more people supported Trump's executive order to ban Muslims than opposed it. Opinions were divided almost entirely along political party lines.

    That's not to say that everyone who agrees with Trump is radicalized. But it does suggest that people are buying into the fears being fed to them.

    Trump is shoving a vision of the world - deprived of nuance and tolerance - down the throats of anyone willing to swallow it.

    His tactics aren't new. The Jewish German political theorist, Hannah Arendt, once wrote: "the sad truth is that most evil is done by those who never make up their minds to be good or evil".

    These words couldn't be more relevant. Trump's administration is counting on their most passive supporters to approve presidential decrees while hoping those who resist eventually normalize the unacceptable.

    If that happens, white supremacy will thrive in the wake of indifference.

    The writer claims Jews to be most affected by this hate yet you don't see any synagogues burned down or a white terrorist go into a synagogue and kill people, but all of this has happened to the Muslims. It's the Muslims who are the most victims here, not Jews or feminists.
