re: #3 Charles Johnson

The real question is why did people just go “meh” about this insanity until these creeps killed someone?

Because our media had mainstreamed “alt-right” to the extent that it was simply seen as a part of the political spectrum and not as a menace and threat to what America stands for and what Americans and fought for and died defending.

“You don’t stop evil by banning it, you engage with it!”

The intellectuals tried that in the 1930s, the fascists simply drowned them out, ran them out, and then rounded up those foolish enough to remain. In the end, you either followed the party line or you were an “enemy of the state” that needed to be silenced.

Bibi’s racing Trump to see who’s going to get indicted and convicted first. He can’t be bothered to address his buddy Trump siding up with the Nazis and deciding that the President of the US will condone acts by the Nazis because some mythical nonexistent alt-left did something (they don’t exist, so there’s nothing for them to have done).

In a world where most people agree that the Nazis are evil and bad and opposing Nazis is a good thing, Trump sided with the goddamned Nazis. Bibi’s silence is assent to that position.

WTF is this “primary tr*mp in 2020” shit? If Republicans are serious about dealing with this infestation of tr*mp and his Nazis, the solution is to impeach him and remove him from office.

I’m sure the Congressional Democrats will be very obliging on an impeachment deal, and won’t even insist on basic signs of repentance from Republican leaders, like the disbanding of Fox News, an end to Hate Radio and a nice long march in DC on their knees wearing sackcloth and ashes.

Anyway…it’s John Kasich on The Today Show this morning speaking about Trump’s comments yesterday.

I give Kasich a little credit, but it is limited by his not calling for Trump to resign. He, like most Republicans probably thinks someone can get to Trump and change him into something useful for the Republicans. Wrong on that Johnny. He can’t and won’t be changed. Nice try. But at least you are showing more guts than wimps McConnell and Ryan.

“Dumb shits.”

We blacks in America have always had to deal with them which is the reason Amarosa left that conference of black journalists in a hurry last week. She didn’t feel comfortable being in the presence of other blacks who don’t support Trump’s policies. She was also a last minute addition. I can only surmise that she and Trump thought they could make some kind of an “inroad” with us via that group of journalists. Amarosa knew better than that before she took her butt to the conference. I would hazard to say that Amarosa, Elder, Carson, and other black Trump supporters know exactly where they stand with the majority of blacks in America, and that’s outside the building, not inside of the room with us. We know who and what Trump is, and there’s nothing they can say to most of us that will cause us to change our minds about him. We know evil when we see it. Most of us have strong Christian values that won’t permit us to embrace Trump even though other black “c”hristians have. We know what that’s about, too, and it has nothng to do with Christianity.

This is the part that got me.

In more than a dozen interviews, black Republicans across the nation blamed Trump’s much maligned response to the Charlottesville, Va. events on his inexperience as a politician. They recall that even Democrat Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president, didn’t utter the perfect statement after every tragedy.

Apparently that’s the reason he supports Nazis. He just needs a little more experience. And of course, slam the first black president while you’re at it.

They’ll be creating excuses based on BS right up to the point where the d*mn Neo-Nazis are slipping that noose around their necks and trying to hang ‘em high. It will be then, and only then, that they’ll turn to Trump to stand with them against the Neo-Nazis and discover he never gave a d*mn about them in the first place.

So this is interesting… Trump’s approval rating among Republicans has dropped below 80%, at least according to this Marist poll (taken before Saturday and the subsequent festivities). For comparisons sake, GW Bush didn’t fall below 80% among Republicans until February 2006 and then hovered around 80% for another year.

Remember, what Congressional Republicans fear isn’t Trump, it’s the base that has been so supportive of Trump (and that mostly manifests in the fear of a primary challenge). If the polls that come out at the end of this week show a big drop for Trump among Republicans… all bets are off.

I figure you won’t see serious movement among Republicans until next year, when the first post-primary polls start coming out showing that Trump’s disapproval rating is dragging down candidates in “must-win” states. That’s when all but the most ardent supporters will start speaking out against him.

That’s entirely plausible. But I also think they’ll follow the numbers, if Trump loses support among Republicans, if that GOP only number drops to 70% or less (which was Bush from about March 2007 on), then I could see them suddenly being “courageous” and “patriotic” in moving against Trump.

The only way to change what Trump is doing is to take at least one of the houses of Congress away from the Republicans.

Until then, the GOP has little reason to alter what they are doing now.

It was always the plan to push through huge tax breaks for the funders of the GOP. That they have yet to do this is only because of the chaos around the ACA repeal fiasco. Once the GOP got that black eye they now find the clock running out on 2017.

If you check the figures from the primary - BOTH GOPers in the runoff got more votes than the democrat. If this was california the election would be between the two republicans

I doubt we’ll see much movement over the next couple of days. I say that because if you look at the “approve” numbers they seem to swing in a small band.

re: #27 lawhawk

Bibi’s racing Trump to see who’s going to get indicted and convicted first. He can’t be bothered to address his buddy Trump siding up with the Nazis and deciding that the President of the US will condone acts by the Nazis because some mythical nonexistent alt-left did something (they don’t exist, so there’s nothing for them to have done).

In a world where most people agree that the Nazis are evil and bad and opposing Nazis is a good thing, Trump sided with the goddamned Nazis. Bibi’s silence is assent to that position.

Despite Charlottesville Jews experiencing what never should have happened here.

On Saturday morning, I stood outside our synagogue with the armed security guard we hired after the police department refused to provide us with an officer during morning services. (Even the police department’s limited promise of an observer near our building was not kept — and note, we did not ask for protection of our property, only our people as they worshipped).

Forty congregants were inside. Here’s what I witnessed during that time.

For half an hour, three men dressed in fatigues and armed with semi-automatic rifles stood across the street from the temple. Had they tried to enter, I don’t know what I could have done to stop them, but I couldn’t take my eyes off them, either. Perhaps the presence of our armed guard deterred them. Perhaps their presence was just a coincidence, and I’m paranoid. I don’t know.

Several times, parades of Nazis passed our building, shouting, “There’s the synagogue!” followed by chants of “Seig Heil” and other anti-Semitic language. Some carried flags with swastikas and other Nazi symbols.

A guy in a white polo shirt walked by the synagogue a few times, arousing suspicion. Was he casing the building, or trying to build up courage to commit a crime? We didn’t know. Later, I noticed that the man accused in the automobile terror attack wore the same polo shirt as the man who kept walking by our synagogue; apparently it’s the uniform of a white supremacist group. Even now, that gives me a chill.

When services ended, my heart broke as I advised congregants that it would be safer to leave the temple through the back entrance rather than through the front, and to please go in groups.

This is 2017 in the United States of America.

Later that day, I arrived on the scene shortly after the car plowed into peaceful protesters. It was a horrific and bloody scene.

Soon, we learned that Nazi websites had posted a call to burn our synagogue. I sat with one of our rabbis and wondered whether we should go back to the temple to protect the building. What could I do if I were there? Fortunately, it was just talk - but we had already deemed such an attack within the realm of possibilities, taking the precautionary step of removing our Torahs, including a Holocaust scroll, from the premises.

Again: This is in America in 2017.

At the end of the day, we felt we had no choice but to cancel a Havdalah service at a congregant’s home. It had been announced on a public Facebook page, and we were fearful that Nazi elements might be aware of the event. Again, we sought police protection - not a battalion of police, just a single officer - but we were told simply to cancel the event.

Local police faced an unprecedented problem that day, but make no mistake, Jews are a specific target of these groups, and despite nods of understanding from officials about our concerns - and despite the fact that the mayor himself is Jewish - we were left to our own devices. The fact that a calamity did not befall the Jewish community of Charlottesville on Saturday was not thanks to our politicians, our police, or even our own efforts, but to the grace of God.

True, but I think Roy Moore is the type that has a real ceiling, even in Alabama, that could be a disaster in the general election. And the Republicans had a contested primary, while the Democrats really didn’t. I’m not saying it’s possible, but I’m not sure there’s anyone in American politics I dislike more than Roy Moore (including POTUS), so I remain optimistic.

We might have as much as 1 chance in 30. That’s better than usual because the GOP nutcase will start a real war in the runoff, and our guy is quite good. As I said yesterday, he’s the prosecutor that convicted the klan splinter group that killed the 4 little girls in the church bombing.

Imagine a biased SAT kind of test where all of the math questions are word problems where the correct answers describe a more or less equitable distribution of resources etc., and the incorrect answers always have the white guy getting the lion’s share of everything.

We will be bearing the scars of the evil that was slavery for generations to come.

I’m kinda curious about this: Does Bannon really think that focusing public attention on “racism” is going to do him, Trump, or the Administration much, if any good? Outside of the usual racist base, of course. Does he really believe that trying to deflect negative attention on the President’s and his people’s prejudices by blithering about “identity politics” is going to be a winning strategy? And that he/the Admin will be able to control the narrative?
Having seen the way Trump and his creatures operate, I have a feeling that by the time the issue gets addressed by the Chief Executive, it’s going to be an embarrassing rehash, à la “No racist. No racist. You’re the racist!” and not much else….

The article goes into detail that Bannon thinks that the Dems talking about “identity politics” while the White House is pushing “economic nationalism” (i.e. protectionism and isolationism) will ensure that Trump comes out ahead.

Meanwhile, in the real world, this administration has totally failed to get any bills passed, just had the humiliation of watching major business leaders break ties with it publicly, and is presently pushing for tax cuts that may not happen any earlier than next year.

Watching AC360 on CNN right now- they had a piece on an interview being conducted with white nationalist Jared Taylor regarding Charlottesville - the answers that he gave were almost an exact carbon copy with the so-called ‘rogue’ statements that Donald Trump gave in his combative press conference. For example, both had references to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson memorials being removed, about how the counterprotestors were just as bad, etc.

The kicker? The Jared Taylor interview was held a full two hours before Trump’s meltdown - and wasn’t broadcast until today. The great unanswered (but at least not now unasked) question is where Trump got his talking points from.

The Ghost of a Flea  Aug 16, 2017 • 6:07:37pm

Contrast this with his mannerisms in the Vice documentary or how he characterized himself (as reported in the SPLC entry).

I’m spinning wheels, but I suspect there’s a cast of archetypes that end up in these movements. The ideology isn’t coherent, so it takes a certain bundle of personality traits to fill in the gaps or ignore them.

Low empathy, low general imagination, poor ability to assume perspective of others. Tendency to abstract people, suggestive of antisocial tendencies…but not all people, not necessarily a true sociopath.

But this guy, it’s narcissism front and center. Something bad happens to him, it’s an injustice so great everything has to be smashed. A different bad thing, pivot completely to smash the new thing. High on the attention of being a big fish in a small pond, terrified of a world that doesn’t affirm the ideas he’s merged his ego with.

Until a few days ago, this was all a power trip. Living in a closed social system that constantly affirmed everything; excited at the power/sex charge of hurting those you’ve identified as anathema; inflating a larger and larger story of violence as virtuous, brave, and manly.

And now he’s wheedling and weeping like a fucking punk precisely because of all of the above. It’s fun because they’ve built a bubble culture in which they’re powerful and have no consequences…the bubble survives the initial violence, even expands as they perceive a “win”…but now there’s consequences and the promise that next time it won’t be fun or on their terms. They’re wannabe nihilists, mediocre libertines, just not skilled enough to effectively inflict their will and cruelty on the world.

Eventually they’ll flock together and pump themselves back up. The ones that score higher on a sociopathy scale will bolster then ones that are uncertain, afraid, and starting to suspect other people might have a point. They won’t admit it, but the internet is their safe space, the only place they can scream and not be interrupted, “think” and not be questioned, be powerful and hurtful.

If you think about it, their greatest show of strength—trolling—is pathetic. They have to find the weakest person among hundreds of thousands, millions, to get a win.

Not that this makes them less dangerous, nor does it make them sympathetic. Ego merged with eliminationism is volatile.

It’s deliberate, of course. The cornerstone of the modern Republican party is coded appeals to white resentment. Naturally that means they are all racist, and most of them are in deep denial about it.

Thinking about how I would be comfortable contributing to various protests, etc., and this is definitely an idea I could get behind.

My other thoughts have been photography at some of the Nazi protests, where getting clear photos could be very helpful particularly in the case of violence (such as the recorded assault, where there aren’t clear photos of some of the perpetrators), and getting a first aid certification and going with a stocked kit to help do initial treatment in the case of violence.

(Where my comfort level lies when it comes to dealing with violence definitely is in the “I can see where it is necessary at times but I am probably not the person who you want on the front lines because my contribution is likely going to be as an unarmed, unresisting martyr-type, and personally I would kind of rather not be injured unless absolutely necessary.)

There’s a lot of voices in the financial community that are beginning to speak up about a coming market correction, most likely some time in the fall, due to the fact that Trump’s tax “reform” is unlikely to happen this year. The current bull market was really planning on deregulation and tax cuts to boost profits for next year. If that doesn’t happen, in light of lower predictions for growth over the next year, the market’s gonna start getting skittish. And if the market starts to collapse, then Trump’s last favorable talking point goes with it.

re: #241 makeitstop

I dunno why, but this doesn’t smell right. From the story:

Now, why would Bannon do this? I smell setup.

I agree this is very strange. The one piece of information I have is that the American Prospect was a legit center-left publication as of a fews years ago back when I had a subscription for a while. It could have recently been purchased by right-wing ratfuckers, but even then there is no apparent reason for this Bannon piece to come out.

“Does he really believe that trying to deflect negative attention on the President’s and his people’s prejudices by blithering about “identity politics” is going to be a winning strategy? And that he/the Admin will be able to control the narrative?”

I’ve been thinking about some of the same things you have about Bannon, Trump, and “identity politics.” I’ve also been wondering whether Trump is smart enough to realize at some point that Bannon isn’t really as loyal to him as he seems to think he is.

Yeah, But there might be more access to meth if he hangs with any of these White Nationalist types.

I get the feeling there might have been a few ragers sniffing a bit for their big Charlottesville rally. Sorta goes with some of the crowd.

Take high resolution photos of the Nazis. All angles. Have water and good shoes and an awareness of where you are. PHOTOS of these is paramount. Tell them you’re a fan. Love them. Get close.Snap and move on. Click click click…Capture all the ugly you can.
My 2 cents. Use your head an always leave an out. Chat it up. Make nice. Dress like a photographer. Non threatening and non identifying. Just there for the story. Love you Swastika…..

re: #217 Don’t Blame Me, I Voted for Kodos

Watching AC360 on CNN right now- they had a piece on an interview being conducted with white nationalist Jared Taylor regarding Charlottesville - the answers that he gave were almost an exact carbon copy with the so-called ‘rogue’ statements that Donald Trump gave in his combative press conference. For example, both had references to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson memorials being removed, about how the counterprotestors were just as bad, etc.

The kicker? The Jared Taylor interview was held a full two hours before Trump’s meltdown - and wasn’t broadcast until today. The great unanswered (but at least not now unasked) question is where Trump got his talking points from.

CNN really is must watch.

After the American Progress interview, I’m not quite sure how the week ends without either Bannon’s termination or Kelly’s resignation. The former is basically bragging that the present state of affairs his doing or his ideal set of circumstances, and from the look on his face yesterday the latter just wants all of this to end. Either Kelly is gonna shitcan Bannon or he’s going to quit when El Jefe Naranjo tells him that’s not happening.

re: #48 majii

“Dumb shits.”

We blacks in America have always had to deal with them which is the reason Amarosa left that conference of black journalists in a hurry last week. She didn’t feel comfortable being in the presence of other blacks who don’t support Trump’s policies. She was also a last minute addition. I can only surmise that she and Trump thought they could make some kind of an “inroad” with us via that group of journalists. Amarosa knew better than that before she took her butt to the conference. I would hazard to say that Amarosa, Elder, Carson, and other black Trump supporters know exactly where they stand with the majority of blacks in America, and that’s outside the building, not inside of the room with us. We know who and what Trump is, and there’s nothing they can say to most of us that will cause us to change our minds about him. We know evil when we see it. Most of us have strong Christian values that won’t permit us to embrace Trump even though other black “c”hristians have. We know what that’s about, too, and it has nothng to do with Christianity.

Since you brought up the NABJ conference, I’m going to take a minute to brag about the award Maya Prabhu won there. She writes for the Post and Courier—used to be at the Myrtle Beach Sun News (I knew it would be a short stay because she’s too good for this small town.) Her mother is a friend and is OVER THE MOON about Maya’s award.
