The NAZIs came to power because they were not challenged often enough. We cannot stand idly by while racists get a foothold in America–once again. We’ve seen once again in Charlottesville what happens when hate is allowed to take hold. Free speech should not be extended to those who incite violence. White supremacists are enemies of our country just like jihadists. And their enabler Donald Trump has got to go as well. Continue reading “White Supremacists Should be Confronted Everywhere”
Hate can be pretty funny sometimes.
Sadly he is not the only racist with a badge:
An officer with the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., has been accused of wearing a shirt with a racist symbol on it while he was on duty, and has now been placed on “non-contact status” pending the department’s investigation into the incident.
Law4BlackLives, a group of lawyers who support the Black Lives Matter movement, told NBC Washington that they have filed complaints with the police department after seeing the officer, identified as Vincent Altiere, wear the shirt in D.C. Superior Court and in the community.
This is one of the darkest days in American television history. A member of the United States Congress used Klansman or NeoNazi talking points on MSNBC last night. Representative Steve King used this racist language the first day of the GOP convention. Coincidence? King, and other hateful comments coming Republicans, would not be happening without the candidacy of Donald Trump. The race-baiter GOP nominee made it possible for all the bigots to crawl from under the rocks and come out in full view. Can it be long before we have full blown racial violence in our country. The NeoNAZIs, and the Klan, have been preaching race wars in America for a long time. They might be getting what they want:
US Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican, shocked members of an MSNBC panel on Monday by challenging them to name a “subgroup of people” that has contributed more to civilization than white people.
The statement came as other panel members were discussing the lack of racial diversity in the Republican Party ahead of the party’s convention, which started on Monday in Cleveland, Ohio.
One of the panelists, Esquire’s Charles Pierce, said that the hall at the Quicken Loans Arena was “wired by loud, unhappy, dissatisfied white people.”
“This whole ‘white people’ business does get a little tired, Charlie … I’d ask you to go back through history and figure out, where have these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you’re talking about. Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?”
“Than white people?” host Chris Hayes attempted to clarify.
“Than — than Western civilization itself that’s rooted in Western Europe, Eastern Europe, and the United States of America, and every place where the footprint of Christianity settled the world. That’s all of Western civilization.”
