The Donald Trump Presidential campaign brought out some suppressed racial and nationalist activists emboldened by a media climate filled with different targeted scapegoats. One rural community became an example for demanding a ban on certain undesirables, even by show of force before the inauguration of Donald Trump. Locations all across the USA faced with residents wanting bans on groups of people through any legal means.
I say to Richard Spencer & Co.: "Bring it."
This way, we'll know who you are and we can find out where you live.
Richard Spencer is an unserious clown who shouldn't have gotten the media attention he did. His Victory rally was so over the top ridiculous that I thought it was satire at first.
It was Richard Spencer who created the alt-right. Some people in the alt-right don't care to admit that.
By the way... Does anyone else here see the irony in a neo-Nazi having his base of operations in a town called Whitefish?
For those who aren't familiar with Jewish cuisine, whitefish is a staple in Jewish households. Our gefilte fish is typically stuffed whitefish, there's whitefish salad, and so on. Whitefish is probably more prevalent in Jewish kitchens than lox, even.
I am perfectly aware of who Richard Spencer is and what he started, but his movement will eventually implode just like every other WP movement. And even now they don't have the critical mass to accomplish anything of note.
I really hope you're right, but I don't think so. There's an upswing in crazy, worldwide. Putin trying to divide and conquer by undermining democracies. And it's working so well because so many are afraid of brown people.
I agree with you, Rose. Complacency is a foolish indulgence.
I don't think you're paying attention.
The next time Richard Spencer tosses a cup in the trash collect it, swab it, and send the culture off to one of the ancestry DNA labs. Nothing pops the bubble of these racial blowhards more than finding out you're not what you once thought.
You mean like the story of white supremacist Craig Cobb, who voluntarily agreed to a DNA test and was surprised when it was revealed on a television talk show that he was "14% sub-Saharan African"? lol
It didn't change his perspective, though. He spent a lot of money to have multiple DNA tests done until he finally found one that (according to him) didn't say he had any African blood in him. What was more interesting, though, was how quickly his friends and followers turned on him after that talk show appearance.
These are hateful people, and they'll easily turn on their friends and even their own family because they believe that loyalty to their "race" is everything.
