Trump's Supporters

Infidel753 posted on this subject today.

Show me the kind of people who support you and your agenda, and I'll tell you what you are:

From the Missoulian:

A white supremacist website called The Daily Stormer has posted a call to "TAKE ACTION" against Jewish people in Whitefish, providing personal contact information and urging a "troll storm" against them. 

The story claims the "vicious, evil race" has harmed the Whitefish business of Richard Spencer's mother. It quotes a story from the British newspaper Daily Mail that said Sherry Spencer "said she is being forced to sell a building she owns in the small town because residents are rebelling against her son." 

The site posted phone numbers, email addresses, and Twitter handles for the Whitefish residents it alleges are harassing Sherry Spencer, along with a disclaimer that it opposes violence. Richard Spencer is president and director of the National Policy Institute, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has identified as a hate group. 

The institute is "dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States, and around the world." 

Spencer said Friday he's thinking about running for the U.S. House seat that would be vacated if U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke of Montana is confirmed as President-elect Donald Trump's choice to head the Department of Interior. 

The Daily Stormer website has a tab called "Jewish Problem." It asks for donations from readers with a plea: "These bastards are always at our throats."

The ADL has a website up where citizens can report and describe anti-Semitic attacks.

 Trump National Security Adviser Met With Leader Of Party Founded By Nazis

 “This is not just any opposition party: It is one with Nazi sympathies,” a former state department official said.

General Mike Flynn, Donald Trump’s pick to serve as his national security adviser, met several weeks ago with Heinz-Christian Strache, the head of Austria’s anti-immigrant Freedom Party, which was founded after World War II by former Nazis. 

 Strache described the meeting, which was first reported by The New York Times, on his Facebook page, where he also announced signing a “cooperation pact” with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Although the Times story focused on the Russia pact, the Flynn-Strache meeting is at least as significant. Austrians’ support for far-right parties has increased significantly over the past 15 years. 

Strache’s Freedom Party received 35 percent of the vote in this year’s parliamentary elections and narrowly lost the race for Austria’s ceremonial presidency earlier this month. “This is not just any opposition party: It is one with Nazi sympathies,” said Daniel Serwer, a former state department official who’s now a professor at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. 

“Nor is Flynn any national security adviser. He is a documented conspiracy propagator. His long-term strategy colleague, Steve Bannon, is an ethnic nationalist and anti-Semite. The president-elect is an anti-Muslim and anti-immigration bigot.”

Hope you don't mind Shaw but I linked your post today at RN USA.

Dave Miller said...

And there will be no disavowal at all, because to do so will cost him their love and support.

As the George W. Bush Admin said regarding Muslims, if the moderates do not publicly disavow the radicals, it must be because they agree with them.

Can any conservative or right leaning partisan please tell us why President Elect trump and his admin should not be held to your last presidents standard?


Shaw Kenawe said...

RN, I don't mind at all. Thanks for the link.

Dave, you won't get any response or call from the right wingers for Trump to disavow support from the neo-Nazi who have been encouraged by Trump's election. None of them are blogging about this disgrace and why would we expect them too? The GOP made a Faustian bargain when they decided to support Trump, who is everything they detest in a human being. They got the power, but they've sold their souls in doing so.

I have no respect for them. None.

All we can do is continue to report on what Trump's neo-Nazi supporters are doing and keep it in front of Americans who actually care about these things.

Also, let's not let people forget that Trump is coming into office with the lowest favorability rating of any president in America's history.

Dave, Happy to provide an answer

Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I don't believe I heard DJT defend hate groups.. BHO actually defended the black panthers, a known hate group, so what does that say about him.

Are you asking should DJT be held to the same standards as W or O. If it is W standards they were pretty low because he was not a fiscal conservative. If it was O, I hope DJT standards are much higher and he doesn't run a special interest administration.

Hopefully the party of Lincoln has given up on the teaparty concept and the christian national party and go back to representing all the people. Maybe after the stunning defeat of the DNC appointee the party of Jim Crowe can give up the progressive idea and go back to representing the unions.

I just hope the latest terrorist attack doesn't interfere with BHO golf game.

Ms Shaw,

Are you going by the same polls who predicted a massive win by -H-. I am not saying his approval is low but I also place no faith in any poll so the lowest of any president is suspect.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anonymous @4:09,

You seem so, so...agitated. Do get hold of yourself, old boy, and squeeze until you turn blue.

Dave Miller said...

Skud... it works like this... no disavowal = approval. That's what the Bush Admin said and what conservative partisans have said for years regarding Muslims and terrorism.

So as long as Trump does not publicly dissociate from these groups and condemn them, by conservative standards of the last 8 years, he agrees with them.

It really is as simple as that...

And we don't need to bring President Obama into the discussion because we are talking about PE Trump.

Les Carpenter said...

skuddy ole man, You are less coherent than your normal self. I trust you're feeling well?

D.K.J. said...

Shaw, LOL!

Anonymous is a perfect example of the mentality of the deranged Trumpanzees.

Les Carpenter said...

Hey anonymous, how's the blood pressure these days. Better chill before you have a stroke.

Clearwater, Florida said...

Skuddy, how does Obama have anything to do with terrorist attacks in Germany? How does that work. Obama is the US president, not the president of Germany. Or maybe you didn't know that?

Les Carpenter said...

It is altogether possible that following the installation of Donald J. Trump as the illegitimate pResident of the USA terrorist activity will increase in the homeland.

May the gods atop Mr. Olympus help us.

Lady Pinkbottom said...

Shaw, re: the Anonymous and other screeching commenters: I will studiously ignore them.

Infidel753 said...

Are you going by the same polls who predicted a massive win by -H-.

Those polls weren't wrong. Towards the end they had her ahead by about two percentage points and that's how the actual vote turned out. The fact that the geographical distribution of those votes delivered the Electoral College win to the loser doean't change that.

I don't tell my commenters what to say.

However. How does it advance anyone's political position to call the opposition names? It doesn't.

Can't we let our ideas and facts carry the argument?
