A terrorist is a terrorist. Period.

Trump only condemns the Islamic loonies. The far right white nut cases are comprised, to him, of "some very good people."

As the man with the biggest pulpit in the world he has to do better than that. Unfortunately it is obvious by now that Trump is incapable of doing so. Is it because he is racist or, at least, for a man obsessed with his political base, knows that a lot of racists exist within it. Whatever the reason you will never hear this man use the expression ``white supremacist terrorists.``

Mulvaney: ‘Absurd’ to say that Trump’s rhetoric influenced New Zealand attack

"The president is not a white supremacist," said the acting White House chief of staff. "I'm not sure how many times we have to say that"

The mail bomber mentioned Trump.

The Synagogue shooter mentioned Trump.

The Coast Guard white supremacist mentioned Trump.

The New Zealand terrorist mentioned Trump.

It's almost as if there's some sort of pattern.

Well, your Central Park 5/ birther may just be another ordinary garden-variety hateful racist.

Andrew Weinstein Retweeted Michael Beschloss

In case you were wondering what @realDonaldTrump was doing in 1973, he was getting sued by the Justice Department for systematically excluding African-Americans and Puerto Ricans from apartments he owned.

 Ladies & Gentlemen this predates the Central Park 5 and predates the birther nonsense.

People are what they are.

Jay Bookman Retweeted Donald J. Trump

Facebook, Google and Twitter are under immense public pressure to filter out racist, bigoted, white-supremacist content. Trump interprets that as being on the side of "Radical Left Democrats,"and he's probably right about that.

Fox's Pavlich complains that America gets no credit for ending slavery.

"They keep blaming America for slavery, but the truth is that throughout human history slavery has existed. America came along as the first country to end it within 150 years. And we get no credit for that."

Image result for katie pavlich  on slavery

Vicious and inhumane slavery is only the beginning of the issues that we are discussing here.

We're talking about the total political and physical and psychological continued enslavement of a people due to discrimination, institutionalized racism and the historical Legacy of Jim Crow.

White terrorists Organizations threatening black people, like the Ku Klux Klan, are paramilitary and are still in existence. Often given sanction, albeit sub rosa, by legitimate local, Regional and federal governments.

Second and third class citizenship for a minority grew out of the economic system of black slavery and still continues today.

White supremacy is the foundation of slavery and the foundation continually of racism in the United States today.

Rep. Steve King Disparages New Orleans Katrina Flood VictimsRep.

The Iowa congressman claimed a FEMA official told him that victims in New Orleans' Hurricane Katrina only asked for help, unlike Iowans who "take care of each other."

 When individuals go out of their way to tell unnecessary lies,

 it's because they have an ardent desire to show their true colors--

they just can't help it.

White Nationalism’s Most Powerful Accelerant

".... Friday, a white supremacist massacred 50 Muslims and wounded 50 more at a pair of mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. The killer bade farewell to his fellow racists on gutter site 8chan, disseminating his inane “manifesto” via Twitter before livestreaming the atrocity on Facebook, via head-mounted camera. ...

this mass murderer, like so many who have preceded him of late, is a young man moved to violence by an international ideology of fascism—exhilarating, purpose-driven, meaningful. Ultimately, intoxicating. ......

—Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, Reddit—serve up this kind of poison on an industrial scale, mushrooming and expanding at a rate that makes catching up with the spread almost impossible. Worst of all, those consuming this hatred, which has exploded into an epidemic over the past ten years, ......

The greater problem remains structural, far bigger than the fate of any individual sleaze ****. Educating those susceptible to their messaging as to why these voices are so toxic will be a harder struggle, given the sheer scale Big Tech offers. It will not be easy to do so without meaningful action by the tech industry, which only now seems to be somewhat recognizing that they have become to America today what sidewalk display cases were to Nazi Germany. ......

Hate crimes increased 226% in places Trump held a campaign rally in 2016, study claims

 

  • US counties where President Donald Trump held a campaign rally saw a 226% increase in reported hate crimes compared to similar counties that did not hold a rally, political scientists at the University of North Texas said in a Washington Post analysis.
  • The scientists found that Trump's statements during the 2016 campaign "may encourage hate crimes" in the respective counties.
  • The study measured the correlation between counties that hosted a campaign rally and the crime rates in the months that followed.
  • Hate crimes in the US reportedly increased 17% in 2017 compared to the previous year, according to an annual FBI report published in November 2018.
