Breitbart Denies Being “Alt-Right,” Then Runs Article Defending White Supremacist Group VDARE

Politics • Views: 30,375

The far right propagandists at Breitbart “News” denied a few days ago that they’re an “alt-right” (read: white supremacist) publication, despite their dear leader Stephen Bannon’s explicit statement that Breitbart is “the platform for the alt-right.”

This is something these people always do; they’ll tell you exactly what they are and what they intend, then in the next breath deny it and play dumb. It’s part of their twisted strategy to keep their enemies off-guard — and I’m pretty sure they get a sick thrill out of the game.

And just to reinforce this point, yesterday they published an article by xenophobic far right ex-Congressman Tom Tancredo blasting the Republican Party and the media for not sticking up for the Colorado conference planned by VDARE — an openly white supremacist organization with one of the web’s ugliest long-running racist hate sites.

But remember, they’re not racists or white supremacists at Breitbart “News.” They’re just number one with racists and white supremacists.

“Alt-right” is just a way of packaging Nazis and White Supremacists in a way to make them appear as if they simply occupied a spot on the political spectrum.

The American political spectrum has no place for either.

Alt-right was just some branding, a way to make themselves seem respectable but different from the paleocons and neocons and the rest. But eventually they were going to show us all who and what they are

Seriously. To Trump, it’s all about obstruction of justice. He thinks the AG’s job is to cover his ass. He thinks McConnell and Ryan’s jobs are to cover his ass. He thinks it’s terribly unfair that they won’t just tell the FBI, the Special Prosecutor, and the House and Senate Committees to lay off.

I really, really wonder whether he’s so blatant about the obstruction because he has something REALLY, REALLY BAD that he’s afraid will get uncovered, or if it’s just an annoyance and he’s REALLY, REALLY STUPID and doesn’t realize that it’s a goddam CRIME to obstruct the investigations.

They also use his UAH data set because it shows a slower increase than surface temps. They conveniently forget to mention satellite data is less accurate than surface temps not more accurate & that Spencer & Christy had to correct their early work because of errors in their math. Those same denialists will be quick to point out that NOAA had to correct it’s early US data because of a math error.

Then of course they’ll claim the corrected US data is global data & shows the ’30s, specifically 1938, was warmer than the Early ’00s.

I honestly thinks it’s both. First he doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong,but second he knows it will look really, really bad.

He completely misses the point that if it looks really bad, it’s because it is really bad.

What pisses me off as a descendant of a Union veteran is that the CSA gets romanticized to the point of nausea and this bs notion that they had to choose their state. Every state and territory sent volunteers in 1861. Lee should not get excused because Virginia seceded. There were plenty of Virginia Union men and women.

Al Gore actually would have been more effective after 9/11 than Bush since he wouldn’t have had the stupid Iraq adventure. We would have focused on Afghanistan and probably gotten OBL sooner.

It’s similar to the Holocaust deniers and Hitler apologists, like David Irving. They know they can’t fully enter the mainstream with such history opposing them so they try to rewrite it to rehabilitate the Nazis.

A lot of the bothsidrisms the right use were originated in the denial movement. You even see it played out with Trumps response to recent events.

Hate to rain on Trumps parade, but we are back from a really great expedition to darkest Tennessee. The little town of Spring City did itself proud, absorbing perhaps 6 to 10X its population of 2,500. They set up viewing areas in a couple city parks, straddling the line of totality. My cheap Meade 90mm f/10 scope worked, projecting through the eyepiece into a Walmart plastic tote with viewing screen. Over a few hours, several hundred people stopped by to see a 10 inch image of the eclipse (including the moon swallowing and puking out 7 sunspots). Many got half-way decent pics by shooting along the axis of the eyepiece and prism. Will send photos if any of Wife’s can be rendered presentable.

Yeah Irving like the CSA apologists tries to make the Nazis out to be anything but the aggressors that they actually were. My brother’s made a good point about Lincoln in our talks. Yes, Lincoln was flawed but he wasn’t anywhere near as flawed as Davis. Davis and the CSA were willing to destroy the United States simply to preserve slavery. If that’s something unworthy of a statue and memorial, I don’t know what is unworthy.

I won’t pretend to know or understand climate science very well which is exactly why I have no patience for politicians talking down to scientists who study this stuff on a regular basis.

Actually, they are but due to the Hughes amendment of 1986 that stopped allowing newly made full automatic weapons to be added to the transferable registry, the price of them has climbed through the roof. Cheap ones are $10,000 to $15,000 and desirable ones are $75,000 +.

Then you have to apply for your tax stamp and meet any local regulations for storage and transport. As a result of being so highly regulated, there are very few crimes with automatic weapons. 99.99% of the so called assault weapons are simply semi-auto look alikes because so few real ones are available at any price.

When it comes to lame non-apology apologies, this one wins and will never be duplicated. On the idiotic Daily Caller (but I repeat myself) story about Barron’s clothes:

“Leave it to the fake news to spin his bro-to-bro advice into some sort of ‘slam…’ “[The author] is just looking out for the kid…He also described Springer as “the most pro-Barron Trump writer I’ve ever met”

rawstory.com

So it was “bro-to-bro advice” from Barron’s biggest fan. Got it.

When SHTF, the last thing I want is a hog that eats 600 hard-to-get rounds per minute.

Oh, I agree personally. Now a nice hunting rifle that can be dual purposed? Say an AR-10 in .243 Winchester or 7-08? With a nice scope? Much more practical and more likely to put Bambi in my freezer than anything else…

On Trey Gowdy’s 53rd birthday, the head of the Office of Management and Budget tweets to wish him a happy 60th birthday.

This is why all their budget ideas are so fucked up.

And made fun of his hair—not saying Gowdy’s hair isn’t ridiculous, but Mick Mulvaney talking about anyone else’s hair? It is to laugh.

In the battle of Trump vs. McConnell, as much as I hate McConnell, I want him to win this particular fight. Allowing Trump to run roughshod over the Majority Leader, or sidelining him, is the beginnings of a dictatorship. Mitch may be a conniving, big-business SOB of a senator, but at least he respects the Constitution and the limits of his own power. Trump, OTOH, has no loyalty to the Constitution, the office of the President, the GOP, or even the voters. He’d be perfectly happy gutting Congress, so he could run the country like his own business, surrounded by yes-men and -women.

McConnell had better lay some traps for Trump to fall into, or our democracy will be in a hella trouble.

What if you can only win caucuses and open primaries in states with relatively small minority populations, but can’t win closed primaries or open primaries in states with substantial minority populations? Should you get the hell out of politics then?

Trump’s Spiritual Adviser: Opposition To Trump Is Opposition To God

Right-wing prepper pastor Jim Bakker interviewed televangelist Paula White, who is one of President Trump’s key spiritual advisers, on his television program today, where she declared that opposition to the president is opposition to God and explicitly praised Trump for not sounding or acting presidential.

“Thank goodness,” she said. “In other words, he’s not a polished politician. In other words, he’s authentically—whether people like him or not, he’s been raised up by God because God says that He raises up and places all people in places of authority. It is God that raises up a king, it is God that sets one down and so when you fight against the plan of God, you’re fighting against the hand of God.”

Later in the broadcast, when White declared that Christians “were sent here to take over,” Bakker excitedly agreed, asserting “that’s why we have the president we have!”

They sang a different tune when God raised up Obama and Clinton. Oh, they are’t kings. Never mind.

Actually, McConnell has no respect for the Constitution or for the limits of his own power. He’s just better at getting away with abuse of power than tr*mp is.

Forget Obama and Clinton. This kind of reasoning is so stupid it could be used to ‘justify’ anyone in power, including Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot etc.

re: #43 HappyWarrior

Al Gore actually would have been more effective after 9/11 than Bush since he wouldn’t have had the stupid Iraq adventure. We would have focused on Afghanistan and probably gotten OBL sooner. But he’s “boring” as opposed to Trump who you know isn’t a total snoozefest because he’s every bully douchebag you’ve ever known.

Before 9/11 too

He’d have heeded the memo
