Photo of the Day: Tila Tequila and White Supremacist Pals Give Nazi Salute at NPI Conference

Featuring white supremacist troll Chuck C. Johnson
WTF • Views: 129,505

The white supremacist group with the innocuous-sounding name “National Policy Institute” (led by Richard Spencer, recently suspended by Twitter) is currently holding their annual conference in Washington DC, and once again cyberstalker and professional harassment troll Chuck C. Johnson is there, along with a whole lot of journalists because these racist knuckle-draggers now have a direct line to the president-elect.

Which leads us to our photo of the day, tweeted by MySpace “personality” Tila Tequila, a big fan of Donald Trump and Nazis of all stripes, with the word “sieg” misspelled.

That’s Chuck C. Johnson in the background left, wearing his red Trump cap at a white supremacist conference because of course he is.

Tila Tequila also tweeted another grotesque photo with the Rage Furby.

And here’s the press clamoring to get next to white supremacist Richard Spencer. Gag.

The caption on a picture over at Daily Kos:

Aaron Day says the 17,000 votes he got as an independent in New Hampshire knocked out Kelly Ayotte. Day moved to New Hampshire in 2009 as part of the Free State Project, which was established in 2001 to get 20,000 libertarians to migrate to a low-population state where they can be a concentrated political force. Day is also CEO of The Atlas Society, an Ayn Rand-based think-tank.

I thought it was interesting that they’re thinking of this.

We could have literal Brownshirts goosestepping along 1600 Penn. and somehow the media would find a way to wonder if it’s a new Washington fashion trend instead of stating the fucking obvious.

They’re being as blatant and obvious about this shit as they could possibly be, and the media is still cowed like fucking idiots.

Anti fascist activists storm restaurant hosting neo Nazi, alt right NPI dinner.

On the 18th of November, the “suit-and-tie Nazi” National Policy Institute(NPI) attempted to hold a quiet dinner meeting on the subject of white supremacy at an Italian restaurant on Wisconsin Ave called Maggiano’s. Anti-fascist protesters stormed the restaurant and got most of the way up the stairs to the second floor where NPI was meeting. A few got in via the elevator. The Washington Post is reporting that “a foul smelling liquid” was sprayed on NPI President Richard Spencer, notorious for peddling “white nationalism.” Efforts by NPI to outwit protesters with a fake meetup at Trump Hotel instead of Friendship Heights failed utterly.

One thing which hasn’t gotten much attention is the US Congress.

The 115th Congress will have at least 6 more Democratic Representatives than the 114th Congress.

The makeup of the 115th will be similar to the 114th, but every seat counts.

Whether the 115th Congress will rubber stamp any Trump proposal is what we will discover.

The only thing about which I am sure is that the House will go along with Trump in gutting the ACA.

Other issues are going to be quite a bit more contentious.

re: #23 Franklin

Apparently the American public just wasn’t interested in the Trump University scam. That’s why it got not as much coverage before the election as so many other things. It was mentioned, but usually just in passing, mostly for the comment about Curiel that Trump made.

And I propose this is the reason: our society doesn’t really like to talk about being scammed, worked, duped, or otherwise shown to be fools. It makes people feel insecure about their own ability to determine the truth and reality.

Which is also why so many scientific discoveries in archeology, genomics, evolution, and psychiatry get such short shrift in the media. Not only because covering stories properly requires expertise, but because those fields directly attack the tightly held religious beliefs to which so many Americans cling.

Back in the day when investigative television shows got going, back when 60 Minutes was new, there would often be stories about this or that fraudster, of scams hitting on this or that group (often the elderly.)

Some of that is still done, but it seems to have been drowned out by more salacious scandal mongering.

I know one of the Free State Project people who ran as a republican for local office (actually, I have suspicions about another who was up for school board). He is a Iraq war veteran. Smart as hell. Very disciplined in his debating style, but ultimately is the classic Milton Friedman/Friedrich Hayek devotee. I read the links he sent me for awhile, but then he started with the Stefan Molyneux bitcoin stuff and I just lost any interest in debate. I think there is a range from “I’ll buy an old church building and start a religion so I don’t have to pay any taxes” to genuine libertarians like my guy. They scare me, though.

A guy I smoked a bunch of pot with in high school went on to an illustrious career as a coke dealer until he almost got himself killed. He turned to alcohol and then by chance one day was watching The 700 Club and broke down and gave his life to Jesus. Ok, I think that’s fine. I had given up pot myself by that time, and I respected his decision to put his life on a path of healing. The next thing I knew, God had told him to move to Hawaii because that was going to be the HQ of the homosexual attack on America and he was going to be a soldier in the war against sodomites. I didn’t have much to say to him after that, but checked in a couple of years ago. It turns out that the salsa God told him to make and sell to fund his trip didn’t really take off and he was living in the same little house nursing the same TV-God directed outrages at the usual suspects. I wonder how he voted….

During an era of rampant voter suppression and strained police-community relations, the Department of Justice is as important as it has ever been in the lives of Americans - especially African Americans and Latino Americans who bear the brunt of police violence and voter suppression. An attorney general with a track record of hostility towards women, communities of color and the LGBT community is simply unfit to serve.

So to answer President-elect Trump’s question: “What do African-Americans have to lose?” With the appointment of Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions to serve as the 84th attorney general of the United States, the answer is easy: everything.

I was having a neat talk with my brother about NOAA the other day. We both really would like to see more exploration of the oceans. The bottoms of the oceans actually interest us more than space. Space is pretty neat though don’t get me wrong. We both had a great aunt that worked ofr NASA in the Space Age. She met all the big name astronauts and everything.

Some excellent points here: The Right Way to Resist Trump

Now that Mr. Trump has been elected president, the Berlusconi parallel could offer an important lesson in how to avoid transforming a razor-thin victory into a two-decade affair. If you think presidential term limits and Mr. Trump’s age could save the country from that fate, think again. His tenure could easily turn into a Trump dynasty.

Mr. Berlusconi was able to govern Italy for as long as he did mostly thanks to the incompetence of his opposition. It was so rabidly obsessed with his personality that any substantive political debate disappeared; it focused only on personal attacks, the effect of which was to increase Mr. Berlusconi’s popularity. His secret was an ability to set off a Pavlovian reaction among his leftist opponents, which engendered instantaneous sympathy in most moderate voters. Mr. Trump is no different.

We saw this dynamic during the presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton was so focused on explaining how bad Mr. Trump was that she too often didn’t promote her own ideas, to make the positive case for voting for her. The news media was so intent on ridiculing Mr. Trump’s behavior that it ended up providing him with free advertising.

Of course, you could argue that the media was obsessed with the trump-personality/hillary-emails angle to the exclusion of all else…but even back in July, during the Democratic National Convention, I felt they were making a YUUGE mistake in focusing so much on trump and how he was “different” from normal republicans. The focus should have been on the too-little-too-late campaigning Obama did as the election neared, focusing more on GOP obstruction and how trump just slapped his name on their festering rot.

Had the Dems done this from the start - bolstering their own policies and slamming those of the GOP, regardless of who they chose to be their standard-bearer - perhaps the results on Nov 8 might have been different :/

Some good points, yes - but the idea that Hillary Clinton didn’t promote her policy ideas is simply wrong. The fact is that the media didn’t COVER her policy ideas because they were so obsessed with the stupid email scandal.

The Clinton campaign was focused on the issues as far back as the primaries, when it was the Sanders campaign that went personal and negative. The idea that the Clinton campaign didn’t do enough to pound her ideas is bullshit. The reality is the media made this into an “optics” war from the moment she threw her hat into the ring and kept it there all the way through Election Day. Any time she brought up an issue, it was “Well yeah, that’s an admirable idea, BUT she’s a liar so we can’t trust anything she says because emails.”

“We don’t even need financing,” [WRONG]Trump said at an event hosted by The Post. “We could do it in cash.”

Soon thereafter, the Trumps decided to put up the equity for the project themselves, investing $42 million of what they say is their own money and borrowing about $170 million from Deutsche Bank to finance construction. GSA officials have confirmed this arrangement.”

They continue to act like they have no responsibility at all for it. Bernie fucking gave Trump that line “She has bad judgment”. I mean I know primary campaigns can be tough but Bernie gave him a big one that he used and probably had some success with. Honestly, he pisses me off. He doesn’t want to join the party but he wants to talk about the party’s leadership and plan for the future as if he’s a member? Nope.

These paragraphs stuck out:

In Clay County where Lockaby lives, 38 percent of the population live in poverty. A fifth of the residents are disabled. Life expectancy is eight years below the nation’s average.

Clay’s location places it inside an area familiar to public health specialists as the South’s diabetes and stroke belt. It’s also in the so-called “Coronary Valley” encompassing the 10-state Ohio/Mississippi valley region.

About 60 percent of Clay County’s 21,000 residents are covered by Medicaid, up from about a third before the expansion. The counties uninsured rate for nonelderly adults has fallen from 29 percent to 10 percent.

But we should understand them because ‘anxieties.’ You know though, as I said, I still do feel a little bad but it’s hard honestly to really feel bad because their ignorance and I have no problem saying that to describe them and their voting patterns hurts a lot of people than just themselves. No, Clinton didn’t need Kentucky to win the GE but maybe just maybe if a lot of the poor whites who vote Republican based on Republican lies stopped falling for it, we would not have President elect Trump right now and we’d probably be reading about VP Elect Kaine getting a round of applause from a Hamilton audience because Kaine unlike Pence has spent a career working for everyone American.

I watched it from my island’s beach, 245 miles north of Canaveral according to the Google Earth ruler. I’ve never seen a space launch from this close. I’ve seen the Shuttle low on the horizon approaching MECO but that was from suburban eastern Massachusetts.

I bicycled over to the beach (a couple of minutes away) with my binoculars and stood near the surf line in the dark, enduring gusty cold wind, and loaded NASA TV on my phone. The delays were a small bother because it was cold and I hadn’t grabbed my sweatshirt.

A moment after launch, on the horizon there was airglow from the launch glare, a lot like a flashlight cone pointed straight up. Then the rocket appeared as a red lantern rising from the horizon’s edge, looking just like a red marker light on a ship. As it angled East (to my left) and rose out of the haze it became orange and through the binoculars I could see shock diamonds in the exhaust. SRB sep was undramatic and the SRBs were surprisingly hard to see, they were almost invisible and when I did make them out, they looked like tiny white stars falling away. Not like the shuttle’s boosters at all.

As the rocket rose higher into the outer atmosphere, of course the exhaust fanned out into a silver-blue arc with an orange star in the center, like old drawings of comets. To the naked eye it looked like a fuzzy backwards “D” with an orange star in the center, about the same brightness and color as Aldebaran. As with most things I’ve seen in space, as soon as it passed out of good seeing, it disappeared like it was never there.

I might have shed a tear or two from seeing something so awesome and beautiful up close for the first time. Next time there’s a launch I think I’ll motorcycle down there and watch it from as close as I can get.

Has AM come back since then? Thought things were resolved. I have nothing against him personally but I really did take issue with the coastal elite stuff and as Klys pointed you yourself and many other Lizards reside in red areas of red states and understood the electoral calculus.

I’ll simply drop in to note two things:

a) I didn’t leave, I simply stopped commenting. I still check in every day to read Little Green Footballs as I find the discussion worthwhile and interesting.

b) As I noted before, I was not talking about the “coastal elite” thing, that is the attitude of people who live here. I wrote that, and when it was ascribed to me by some here, I repeated that it was not my attitude. Since I can’t get that through here, as long as that keeps getting thrown in my face as commentary between other writers, I don’t see much need to write myself.

In the meantime, there may be a liberal purge here in our next village board meeting.

But you don’t have to respond by doing b).
Let them be the ones to be foolish, while you take the high road by ignoring them.

Seems to me that (a) would be using the tens of thousands to safeguard the millions the village has, and the millions would be good arguments “against” in the recall.

re: #149 Targetpractice

Yeah, imagine my shock that Bros are now trying to act as though they had no part in electing this shitheel.

Yeah. One of my Bernie-following friends posted one of the Trump outrages (can’t remember which one, there are so damned many) and said ‘I’d rather have DC business as usual than this!!’

Should have thought of that a month or so ago.

There’s gonna be a bumper crop of buyer’s remorse in a year or so.

Interesting. On 1010 WINS radio this evening, they reported that Pence was ‘lectured’ by the cast member, and I wondered why they would frame it that way. Now it makes sense.

re: #229 Anymouse

I’ll simply drop in to note two things:

a) I didn’t leave, I simply stopped commenting. I still check in every day to read Little Green Footballs as I find the discussion worthwhile and interesting.

b) As I noted before, I was not talking about the “coastal elite” thing, that is the attitude of people who live here. I wrote that, and when it was ascribed to me by some here, I repeated that it was not my attitude. Since I can’t get that through here, as long as that keeps getting thrown in my face as commentary between other writers, I don’t see much need to write myself.

In the meantime, there may be a liberal purge here in our next village board meeting.

Back to reading LGF.

Okay, understood completely. You should still post though. Anyhow, any disagreement is water under the bridge for me. Sorry that you may have to worry about being purged from your position. That’s really really shitty. I really think our positions aren’t too different. We both want a party that builds itself from the ground up in small communities like the ones we both reside.

Making even less sense than usual.

re Hamilton ticket prices:

part of why they’re so high is they give free tickets to every high school student in the city (not all at the same time obviously — there’s 250,000 high school students in NYC, less than 1/4 have seen it yet); also, there’s a lottery every day for the 5% of tickets that they sell for $10 each.
