1) For some reason, folks on the right have extremely short memories when it comes to acts of right-wing political violence.

This is especially the case when they are in the middle of a propaganda campaign to make "the left" look violent.

A long thread with lots of pix follows.

here's a timeline that follows, of right-wing killers of the past decade. All of them targeting innocent people over political beliefs.

A gunman who killed 2 people at a Kroger in Kentucky tried to enter a predominantly black church minutes before the attack, the police said. "I'm just thankful that all of our doors and security was in place," the church administrator said.

Gregory Bush was arrested Wednesday after two people were killed at a Louisville supermarket. On Thursday, he was charged with murder and wanton endangerment.

Maybe instead of the DHS Secretary grandstanding at the border, she could focus on the rampant white supremacist attacks against black communities?

Numerous terrorist attacks in America this week...

Not from people in a caravan

Not from people from Mexico

Not from people from Yemen

Not from people from Iran

Not from people from Syria

Not from people from Libya

All from white supremacists from America.

Sick.

Joyce Alene Retweeted Tony Posnanski

Domestic terrorism, committed by Americans who align with nationalist, white supremacist agendas, is a significant threat that has been virtually ignored by this administration. Trump is accountable for focusing on risks he profits from politically instead of on real ones.

Bowers, accused of murdering at least 11 at a Pittsburgh synagogue, was a neo-Nazi who posted online about killing Jews—and raged at Trump for being insufficiently anti-Semitic

Critics say Trump has fostered the toxic environment for the political violence he denounces
The president, once hoping to fan fears of Central American migrants, is facing accusations that his tolerance of rising white nationalism is a greater threat.

While the probe into today's synagogue massacre is in its early stages, it's worth noting that white supremacists and other far-right extremists were responsible for 59% of all extremist-related fatalities in the U.S. last year (Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism)

White supremacy is a cancer killing American freedom and democracy.

We've never had violent extremist groups saying that what they're doing is on behalf of the president.

With this president, that is what we've got.

Ronald Brownstein Retweeted Ashley Parker

Division is a feature, not a bug, of his political strategy. Trump's central message to his base is that they are endangered by a constantly evolving array of threats that don't look like them & he is their last line of defense vs. them. Heightening anger/fear is his major fuel

A mixed reception seems likely for President's planned visit to Pittsburgh tomorrow. Some members of the Jewish community say he is not welcome until he denounces white nationalism. But others, including a rabbi of the synagogue that was attacked, say he is welcome to visit

Tree of Life Rabbi Myers: “I am a citizen. He’s my president. He is certainly welcome.” (via CNN);

Meantime, Mayor Peduto: “If the president is looking to come to Pittsburgh, I would ask that he not do so while we are burying the dead.” (first funerals are tomorrow)  (NYT)

When Trump announces the country is being "invaded" when it is NOT,

and sends troops to the border as though there's a military conflict when there is NOT,

the media has every right to say Trump is emulating Hitler's use of the Reichstag Fire to stoke domestic panic pre-election.

I don't know and if Fox viewers and Republicans in general are in a panic.

But I do know for sure that the alleged synagogue shooter was greatly influenced and upset by the fake news conspiracy about this Invasion. We know that because he put it on his social media website just prior to the shooting.

In an interview from today, set to air tonight, the president continues to call the migrant caravan an "invasion"

The exact same rhetoric that set off the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter

Trump admin will apparently not renew program to fight domestic terror

The Trump administration had already canceled a grant for a group that fights white supremacist terror.

Trump is barnstorming the country with a racist midterm message reminiscent of President Andrew Johnson's disastrous 1866 campaign.

He's copying Andrew Johnson-- if Trump knew American history, he would know that's not a good idea.

Trump accuses @Yamiche, who is black, of asking "such a racist question" when she presses him on whether he is encouraging white nationalists by declaring himself a nationalist.

This is what happens when trump actually has to face reality. It's totally upends him because

he lives in a world of psychotic narcissism.
