In Which the President of the US Promotes White Supremacist Propaganda

Politics • Views: 29,469

White supremacists all over the web saw another one of their dreams come true last night, as our so-called president retweeted racist “white genocide” propaganda he picked up on the Tucker Carlson Fox News hatefest. This long-standing racist conspiracy theory has been circulating in the darkest areas of the internet for years, and it’s now made its way from neo-Nazi websites to Fox News, and from there to the Twitter account of the president of the United States.

This isn’t “dog-whistling” any more.

Like so much of the stuff that emanates from Donald Trump, “large scale killing of farmers” is simply not happening; in fact, attacks on farmers in remote areas of South Africa are actually declining, not getting worse.

As for “land and farm seizures,” there’s a grain of truth behind this, but as usual it’s been exaggerated, distorted and stripped of context by the white supremacists. In the bad old apartheid days, white people had basically stolen close to 90% of the land in South Africa. That figure has now declined to about 70%, obviously still a very sore point.

To address this race-based disparity, the African National Congress has proposed a constitutional amendment that would let the government confiscate land without compensation. This amendment is very controversial (for obvious reasons), has not yet been enacted into law, and no land has yet been expropriated. But the propagandists are acting like it’s already going on, of course.

The South African government responded to Trump’s vile tweet:

And the Anti-Defamation League also issued a statement denouncing Trump for this tweet:

But the response from white supremacist Twitter (yes, that’s a real thing in 2018) was overwhelmingly celebratory. When I posted a tweet pointing out that Trump was pushing an outright white supremacist talking point, I was name-checked by none other than former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.

Duke was calling out his racist followers to attack me, and did they ever. My Twitter timeline was almost instantly inundated with insults, death wishes and threats, and hate speech by racists and white supremacists, and it’s still going on as I write this. In all my time on Twitter, I don’t think I’ve ever seen these troglodytes so excited.

But I may have to print out David Duke’s tweet and frame it.

But your tweet said—

“No, don’t put words in my mouth-tweet. Circular reasoning.”

Is SA seizing land from White farmers?

“I’m having Pompeo study it…we’ll see. If only white farmers very bad.”

OK you just said White…

“No, that’s what you said. Don’t put words in my mouth. It’s not a ban, I mean I didn’t say they were killing white farmers, you said that.”

I’m sure this will come as a surprise to nobody:
Climate change denial strongly linked to right-wing nationalism

“Two strong groups have joined forces on this issue - the extractive industry, and right-wing nationalists. The combination has taken the current debate to a much more dramatic level than previously, at the same time as our window of opportunity is disappearing.”

Right-wing nationalism’s links to climate change denial are a relatively unresearched topic, but Environmental Sociology recently published an article where Hultman and his research colleagues show the connections between conservatism, xenophobia, and climate change denial, through a study in Norway.

re: #24 DodgerFan1988

It sadly does not seem like it’ll matter. The murder will be taken as an article of faith of the inherent criminality of ‘illegals’. That the very act of being an ‘illegal’ is in and of itself murderous and that they’re all super-dangerous mega-animals.

That seems to be the majority response to this, no matter what’s said. It doesn’t matter when people point out how it conflates the very act of being an immigrant somehow inherently leads to murder, the idea that this man’s legal status is the prime determining factor of the murder. It doesn’t matter when people point out how crime statistics show how immigrants, even undocumented immigrants, commit crime at a lower rate.

It doesn’t matter, because the idea of the inherently criminal immigrant will seemingly win out no matter fucking what. The demonization of the immigrant will win out, no matter fucking what. The purity of hate must be unbound.

I was eating my lunch when I heard a commotion in the living room. When I went to see what it was, I saw our young male bean go tearing by the doorway with the handle of a paper gift bag around his neck. I couldn’t catch him and he ran into the basement. I got to the doorway of the basement and he came running past me the other way into our storage area. He jumped up onto a shelf and literally disappeared. I was panicking and moving boxes and calling him. Freaking the fuck out.

I walked back into the den, thinking he might have gotten past me somehow. Not there. I walked back into the storage area and there he was. No bag around his neck, sitting calmly, and looking at me like ‘What?’.

Frank Figliuzzi (Former FBI) on Nicole Wallace show (MSNBC) just reminded everyone David Pecker is also a friend of Rudy G. and they had a business together.

Maybe this will shut Rudy up…who knows?

He is also saying with Pecker, Muller and others can look into other past Trump pay-offs, story buy-outs etc., and use them to show buying off others now as President is typical Trump ways to “fix” problems. It establishes a pattern. And, he may have recent cases we don’t know about yet.

Sticking to it: Lee County (Va.) applies ‘In God We Trust’ decals to school buses

This is a scam by the right wing Congressional Prayer Caucus.

President and co-founder Randy Forbes told our sister station WZTV that his organization has placed 2.9 million decals on windows and helped nine states craft laws that not only require public schools to display, ‘In God We Trust,’ but can so far also withstand a legal challenge.

“We worked with the State of Tennessee and many other states,” Forbes added. “We can kind of point out for them the landmines that are out there, telling them from best practices what other states have done that’s worked very well.”

It wouldn’t take much to alter these to read “In GOLD we trust,” which would reflect their true values a lot better.

President’s lawyer claimed there was “no reason” for impeachment and says Trump has been “vindicated” by Michael Cohen’s account.

lgf

once again, there are three parts to the investigation:

- whether / how the Russian government interefered in the election
- any possible link/coordination between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government
- other matters that may arise or be uncovered

the first one is the primary one - it’s the big one

this is not an investigation of trump or the trump campaign
and it was not designed to accuse, indict, or clear trump or the campaign

further, what michael cohen may or may not have said, has no bearing on what mueller’s team knows or is going to do.

and finally, rudy has no idea what mueller’s team knows or is going to do. if rudy talks about the investigation he is making stuff up

“They bought the land with their hard earned money.”

Who did they buy the land from?

“….from the people who owned the land before”

And who owned the land before?

“…from the brave conquerors I mean liberators who by natural law took possession of the land that wasn’t being profitably used”

That sounds familiar….

What I don’t get about the threats that people would rebel if Trump was held to account: these are the same people who barely attend his rallies, didn’t attend his inauguration, and apparently are having to be prodded to show up and vote. And none of these actions involve any risk to life or limb. If people really felt that way about Trump, there’s no apparent move to save him by anyone other than Trump himself. To think that other than some randos are going to risk being shot or going to jail for Trump is ridiculous.

And even if they did, nothing would restore Trump anyway once he’s out. There’s no mechanism to put him back in if he is impeached or resigns.

It’s the last resort of a bad relationship-“I’ll make you sorry you dumped me” translated in political terms. And just like that, America-and the dumper-move one with life.

“The stakes on November 8 could not be higher,” he said. “A vote for Hillary is a vote to surrender our government to public corruption, graft, and cronyism that threatens the very foundations of our constitutional system. What makes us exceptional is that we are a nation of laws, and that we are all equal under those laws — Hillary’s corruption shreds that foundational principle.”

But the problem, Trump said, wasn’t just Clinton. It was the whole damn system.

“Public corruption is a grave and profound threat to a democracy,” he continued. “Government corruption spreads outward, like a cancer, and infects the operations of government itself. If the corruption is not removed, then the people are not able to have faith in their government.”

Trump unveiled a package of ethics reforms that day…. But the proposals were hardly the point. The point was that Washington was a cesspool of corruption and Trump was going to clean it up. You didn’t have to like him, trust him, or even think him qualified. You just had to believe that it was time to take a wrecking ball to the Beltway.

Newt Gingrich says slain Iowa student could help GOP in midterms

as i said yesterday the gop are equal opportunity ghouls

they will use any tragedy —
white on white, white on black , black on white, black on black, man on woman, woman on man, illegal, legal tall, short, ad nauseum

as long as they think they there’s a way to get mileage out of it
power first: there is no other metric, moral, or takeaway

This needs to be widely publicized so the police don’t get away with not charging him. Claiming that he has a mental illness doesn’t negate that he needs to be punished for his action. There would be no talk about mental illness if this was a Black man and the victim was a 5-year old White child.

Officer Celeste Jaqueline Ayala is a veteran police officer in Buenos Aires, Argentina who also works as a security guard at Sister Maria Ludovica Children’s Hospital.

She saw a baby brought in because the single mother was unable to provide adequate care. The malnourished baby, the youngest of the six children, was wailing in hunger. And he refused the hospitals baby formula.

“I noticed that he was hungry, as he was putting his hand into his mouth, so I asked to hug him and breastfeed him”, said Celeste, who recently gave birth to her daughter. “It was a sad moment. It broke my soul seeing him like this.”

At first, hospital staff balked. Administration officials and a doctor referred to the baby as “smelly and dirty”.

Undeterred but with permission, Celeste did what a mother would do.

She fed the baby.

She nursed and rocked the baby for 40 minutes, even after he fell asleep.

Another officer took her a picture of her breastfeeding, which is at the DK link, and posted it, in order to show praise for her actions. It did more than that. Her police chief promoted her to sergeant for doing it.

re: #274 Charles Johnson

Trying to find out who posted the 12 millionth comment - it’s getting difficult to be this specific as the database gets larger and larger, and the system gets more and more asynchronous. I need to spend a little time to figure out the best way find that exact comment, but I hope to have a most likely candidate by this weekend.

I think it was Patricia Kayden.

Hitler was a piker. He had to use fear of death to keep his flunkies in line. All Trump had to do was get them to sign NDAs.

Though my expertise in South Africa is nowhere near the caliber of Charles’, I am still widely considered in the big leagues when it comes to knowledge of South Africa.
