alt-lite alt-right irony alert literal nazis men who should not ever be with women ever racism trump twitter white supremacy

Some people liked Trump’s press conference today. Mostly white supremacists.

David Duke: Thank you, President Trump

Donald Trump gave a press conference today that will be remembered as one of the lowest points in the history of the presidency. It will be included in every clip reel chronicling the ultimate impeachment of Trump.

Petulant, irritated, lashing out at the press and at times even fellow Republicans, Trump declared that some of the members of the racist mod that marched through Charlottesville were “fine people.” He launched the attack on the counterprotesters he’s been itching to do since the thing happened. “What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, alt-right?” he demanded, pointing out that unlike the Nazis, they didn’t have a permit.

He praised the mother of the murdered Heather Heyer for saying “the nicest things about me.” He ended the event by bragging about the size of his winery in Charlottesville.

But hey, some people thought he did a terrific job. Nazis, white supremacists and assorted other really, really terrible people.

weirwoodtreehugger: chief manatee

Kupo,

I was ranting at my dad last night and telling him that I put anyone who is still supporting Trump in the same category as white nationalists and that I don’t care if it hurts the feelings of Republicans to be called Nazis because they deserve it for supporting one. I also said I would no qualms saying

He didn’t object at all. He’s progressive and all, but he really hates conflict and typically wants to see the good in everyone. One of his biggest flaws is that he can be wishy washy. He has two brothers who are avid Trump fans and I was most certainly implying that I would not hold back around them from now on. And he didn’t try to make excuses for anyone.

I considered that progress. Cause he usually thinks that even though we mostly agree politically, I speak about things a bit stridently for his taste. He tends to think that if everyone just comes out and votes, everything will be okay so he hasn’t understood my anger and fear. But maybe he gets it now.

@Dreemr:

For a minute I couldn’t quite understand how, even as much of a racist asshole Drumpf is, how he couldn’t bring himself to even lament the death of Heather Heyer as an innocent victim.

And then it struck me like a bolt of lightning: she was a woman, and thus not human to him. Her death means nothing more to him than if someone’s dog were run over.

It doesn’t really have to do with her being a woman. It has to do with her being a human that is not him or related to him. That’s why her death means nothing to him. He’s certainly a misogynist, but more than that, he’s a narcissistic sociopath before anything else.

that is not him or related temporarily useful to him.

Pres. Buchanan gets a bit of a bad rap. He was a failure, but in a job at which nobody could have succeeded. Pierce — who was elected because he was a rabidly pro-slavery northerner — was much worse. Robert Frost wrote about him:

[New Hampshire] had one President. (Pronounce him Purse,
And make the most of it for better or worse.
He’s your one chance to score against the state.)

The irony here is that Frost’s father was a copperhead (pro-Southern northerner) and named him Robert Lee Frost.

Pierce’s home and tomb are about two miles from where I live, on the other side of the Merrimack. NH has produced one Vice-President, who was Grant’s VP. He somewhat cancels out Pierce. When he was about 20, a wealthy man who had taken an interest in him gave him money to make a trip to Washington. There he saw a slave auction, and it made an indelible impression on him — for the rest of his life he was a devoted abolitionist. Many of the regular Massachusetts abolitionists regarded him as uneducated and uncouth, but he never wavered, and represented Massachusetts in the US Senate during the Civil War.

I myself am named for my great-grandmother’s brother, Eugene Sanger, who was studying to become a minister at Brown University, but dropped out to enlist in the Union Army. He was mortally wounded in Louisiana in a rather pointless battle on the day my grandfather was born. Tens of thousands of young people like my namesake died to end slavery, and tens of thousands more died to defeat Nazism. And now we have some delusional young men who think it’s cool and edgy to be Nazis and general of white supremacists.

That’s pretty much exactly how the lead up to WW2 started. Scared for where their country was headed, as well. Hopefully they don’t have the numbers or the will to actually turn America fascist, but they’re giving it a try.

They’re (mostly) too young, or inexperienced, to understand that the policies they are told they want, won’t help them in the long run.

Resist.

They understand plenty well enough. They just mean something different by ‘help them’. The ‘help’ they want is a chance to commit lynchings and queer bashings without repercussions, just like in the ‘good old days’. That’s what they’re after, and they’re going to the right shop for it. That’s why they need to be crushed, not reasoned with.

I love what Stephen Colbert referred to David Duke as….
“Former KKK Grant Wizard and current taxidermy-lizard, David Duke…”

Love it!

I’m also saving that cartoon and those above anti-Nazi memes to use later in other threads.
