Candace Owens calls the GOP’s Southern Strategy “a myth.”

 

It’s not a myth. In 2005, RNC chairman Ken Mehlman even apologized for it to the NAACP national convention and said it was “wrong.”

When Democrat Lyndon Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater opposed it.

That year, Republicans won the deep south for the first time in 100 years.

 

They used a Southern Strategy to convert racist white Democrats to Republicans.

Trump supporters have seized on the idea that it’s unfair for the media to say Trump said there were "very fine people on both sides" when referring to white supremacists

138 people have been killed in Sri Lanka, with more that 600 badly injured, in a terrorist attack on churches and hotels. The United States offers heartfelt condolences to the great people of Sri Lanka. We stand ready to help!

Replying to @realDonaldTrump

a white dude burned 3 black churches to the ground right here in America and you have yet to say a word about that, mister best president ever sir, why is that? are we ready to stand to help in Louisiana? or were there some "very fine people" on both sides of the gas can?

trump may not be the first white supremacist president, but he certainly is the most blatantly open with it.

Even before he was president, he was the leader of the racist birther movement.

The below article pretty well sums up the Mueller report and the "impeachment" question.  It won't work.  The report is too vague, too confusing and too complex for the majority of people who will vote in 2020.  Every Republican in Congress will endorse Trump and attack the Mueller report and impeachment.  More importantly it will rile up the Trump base and the GOP and they will dominate the elections in 2020.  Count on it.  The Dems have nothing to offer to counter that - at least not yet.

Once again the key is the Electoral College and that is by state vote, not by House districts.

As for Trump, he has successfully avoided responsibility for any of his actions since he was born.  It will not change now.  Once re-elected he will be uncontrollable.  He has already learned the power of executive actions, even when some fail.  He has also learned about interim appointments for cabinet and other positions thereby avoiding Senate confirmation.

Do not think of the murderers in Charleston, Pittsburgh, Christchurch, San Diego (#Poway) as lone wolves. They are inspired by the same white supremacist antisemitic websites. There are no fine people here and there were none in Charlottesville #antisemitism_here_now

White supremacy is an evil brew of racism and anti-Semitism.

Nothing good can ever come from it.

America Under Attack by White Supremacists Acting Like ISIS

A widespread digital network is calling for people to carry out more terrorist attacks after Poway and Christchurch.

 

"......white supremacist John Earnest previewed his plans on 8chan, just as his supposed inspiration did. Last month, a white supremacist in Christchurch, New Zealand used 8chan to share a link to a livestream of him killing 50 Muslims at a mosque.

In between the attacks, the anonymous forum with a large fascist presence called for people to carry out more shootings. The calls for violence also spread across fringe platforms like Gab, and messaging apps like Telegram. It’s reminiscent of calls online for followers of ISIS and al Qaeda to strike out at the enemy, counter-terrorism experts said.

After the New Zealand shooting, 8chan users decorated the alleged killer as a “saint” and encouraged each other to commit shootings of their own, including against synagogues, to prepare for the “third world war” against Jews, or to kill a journalist critical of the forum.....

 

The online-inspired terror, and its instant repackaging as propaganda, was pioneered by  ISIS and al Qaeda. And unlike Islamic extremism, white supremacist terror appears to hold a place of middling concern in the Trump administration.

“It’s interesting: we fretted so much about al Qaeda and ISIS online, and we’ve got a massive white supremacist network online right now,” said Clint Watts, a Clint Watts, a former FBI agent on the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

 

.....In these forums and others, users can be observed spreading anti-Semitic conspiracy theories with the stated goal of inciting a reader to violence.

After the San Diego shooting, Twitter user AntiFash Gordon uploaded screenshots of members of a violent white nationalist Telegram channel agitating for “pogroms.”...

ISIS might be a favorite Trump talking point, but the 1.5 million Christchurch video uploads suggest a much larger following for white supremacist terror.

“You can tell that the global network of white supremacist terrorism is pretty damn strong right now, because they keep uploading, they keep talking about it, and the pace of attacks continues to speed up,” Watts said.

“That’s a bad sign. If we were talking about inspired ISIS or al Qaeda attacks, all lights would be blinking bright red right now.”......

you cannot bring down trump with just the house....but let that desperate fallacy prosper.

it only buys time for the GOP and fosters very irrational democrat hysterics.

(which will be seen when Pelosi shuts down low I.Q. Maxine)

Before his Buttigieg smear, Jacob Wohl had already:

-Become the youngest person banned from futures trading

-Been under federal investigation for faking a similar smear against Robert Mueller

-Faked death threats against himself and reported them to police.
