There is a tension that arises because there are groups like Nazis and other Fascists who use the rights and privileges of a free society to eventually destroy those rights and privileges. When it was just Illinois Nazis in small numbers marching, defending their right to march made sense.

Now? Much tougher call.

Remember who was at the airports when Trump tried his first immigration executive order: ACLU attorneys. Remember who was at the courthouse and got it stopped: ACLU attorneys. The ACLU does defend Nazis, in free-speech cases; it defends hippies in flag-burning cases; and it is willing to take the President to the Supreme Court.

Their support also hinges on a thin technicality, that the universities his benefactors are getting local conservative student groups to invite him to are publicly funded, and therefore constitute some kind of commons.

My honest response to that is that the local conservative student groups are just acting as a front for an externally driven ideological crusade. If they fundraised and spent their own money bringing Milo in that would be one thing (a shitty thing but fundamentally different) but it literally costs them nothing because all the bills are being paid by the Mercers. It’s a smirking shit-show with no redeeming academic or market value masquerading as an ideological free speech themed itinerant carnival that time and again ends up costing the Universities involved massive amounts of money for extra security and clean up.

Also, almost all Universities in the US are publicly funded through Government backed student loans and Pell Grants. Yet you won’t see the ACLU telling Liberty University that they have to allow any liberal asshole their students invite to speak on campus. The entire argument the ACLU is making is de facto once sided and fundamentally tilted to aid the kinds of real world fascists who are abusively using government power to stifle civil rights in the immediate present.

I’m going to say that the city of Charlottesville did a HORRIBLE job defending their attempt to move the Nazi march out of Emancipation Square. They could have pointed out that the square is tiny (a little over an acre) and 500 Nazis were expected. They could have pointed out that Charlottesville is an easily congested town and the Nazis and counterprotesters were going to overwhelm the streets in the city core. They didn’t do these things, or they didn’t emphasize it enough. And then, when it came time for the actual rally, they didn’t do what the Austin Police Department did 35 years ago when the Klan came to the Capitol—they didn’t absolutely separate the two groups by a police line.

The ACLU did its job. It’s not required to make the city’s argument. The city did a bad job.

I’ve put this up before, but I think today it’s relevant in a new way.

None of the words mattered. The subsequent excuses, blame, rhetoric, diatribes…those words won’t matter.

What the Lost Cause and Nazi fetishist have in common is a sentimentality that imagine is factual: a “story” of who they are that makes them feel good, powerful. What we see over and over is that no other part of their thought process is truly fixed, and what they say and think will change to fit the needs of (1) continuing to feel entitled to act on whim, (2) explaining failure as betrayal, (3) a priori dismissing the value of veracity established through analysis or debate (because everyone else simply does not matter).

Richard Spencer can play the victim and boast of the ease with which his fellow travelers could kill the protestors (“with their bare hands”) and see no conflict. They will never try to reconcile their contempt of other’s feelings with the way they nurture their own anger, fear, and resentment as Truth.

I’ve been watching The Man in the High Castle on Prime. You watch a fictional Nazi America on that show, and then read online how chunks of America would be cool with that reality; the show becomes a lot less entertaining.

courier-journal.com

My friends in the neighborhood there reported on Facebook that someone had defaced the statue with red paint. Not sure if that happened before or after the protest linked here.

The soldier in question served in the Confederate Army, then in the Union Army, and was instrumental in developing Louisville’s parks system (designed by the same guy who did New York’s Central Park). So, there some reluctance by people in Cherokee Triangle and the Highlands to remove his statue, which is near one entrance to Cherokee Park.

It cannot be said loudly or often enough. White nationalists are emboldened by Donald Trump’s non-condemnation of their actions, and the proof that he will not openly act against them speaks volumes. They are already openly speaking of Charlottesville as only being the beginning of their violent acts. As much as I hate to say it, before the end of this year, there will be an Anders Breivik-level act of terrorism committed by a white nationalist individual (or group). What’s worse is that even then, Trump and his closest sycophants will engage in false equivalence, or outright blaming of the victims who “had it coming to them” simply because of who they were and what they represented.

Think about it.

Not only could he not do this, he went as far as saying that those who oppose them are just as bad. This is sociopathy at the most basic level.

First, Chicago (and other northern cities) should put to rest that idea that racism is a southern problem. To understand institutional racism, Chicago is a great case study. Now, I wouldn’t say that the red-lining practices of the real estate industry over the last several decades is to blame for the violence. But I would say that it played a major role in creating a set of young people with no hope because their parents had no hope to move out. And then the guns and the drug cartels moved in. Who says these kids aren’t entrepreneurial? The got into the business as soon as they could. With diminishing corners from which to sell you got to kill to get ahead.

Second, statistics show that the problem is worse per capita all over the country.

re: #152 wheat-dogg

Here’s some details about the protests in Louisville about a Confederate soldier statue in Cherokee Triangle, one of the oldest (and wealthiest) sections of Louisville. (Beware of video autoplay).

courier-journal.com

My friends in the neighborhood there reported on Facebook that someone had defaced the statue with red paint. Not sure if that happened before or after the protest linked here.

The soldier in question served in the Confederate Army, then in the Union Army, and was instrumental in developing Louisville’s parks system (designed by the same guy who did New York’s Central Park). So, there some reluctance by people in Cherokee Triangle and the Highlands to remove his statue, which is near one entrance to Cherokee Park.

If I were an artist there, I would create a union statue, and a park statue, and call the trio Evolution.

re: #182 Myron Falwell

Ironically, that’s what happened to the Cleveland Museum of Art’s copy of Rodin’s “Thinker.” It was bombed in 1970 and never repaired.

Yep: Anti-war protest: they think some dipshit simply shoved a stick of dynamite under the figure’s leg, lit it and scrammed. They must not have realized that Rodin’s founders used that good old-time French bronze: and plenty of it. The blast peeled the bronze of the base back like a banana peel, but the “Thinker” is still intact. Probably thinking about kicking the ass of the bomber if he should ever dare to come back……

re: #184 Unshaken Defiance

Ooof, that puts my suggestion in rather uncomfortable territory. Rethinking that one now.

True. I’ve seen it quite a few times.

Here’s a good article about the vandalism and the aftermath from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s website.

re: #183 Don’t Blame Me, I Voted for Kodos

I really wonder about the mental health of Donald Trump now.

Think about it. He had what may have been the biggest softball pitch out there to rally America behind him - just by giving an unequivocal condemnation of the one group of people who a vast majority of Americans identify as pure evil - Nazis. Not only could he not do this, he went as far as saying that those who oppose them are just as bad. This is sociopathy at the most basic level.

It was, in hockey, an empty-netter. You’re up by two goals with less than two minutes remaining, the opposing team’s goalie comes off the ice, you intercept the pass, you’re all alone and…the shot goes high.

Sounded much better in the original Russian.

Been away so long I hardly knew Trump place
Gee it’s good to be back home
Leave it till tomorrow to read important briefs
Gimme my goddamed phone

Let me tell you how lucky you are boy
Back in the US
Back in the US
Back in the US…USA

No, he somehow managed to own-goal it.

Feels more equivalent to a wrong-way layup in basketball.
