    The Washingon Free Beacon ^ | 08/16/17 | David Rutz
    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough made his first appearance on "Morning Joe" this week Wednesday to light into President Donald Trump for his press conference that blamed "both sides" for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Scarborough said Trump was now officially the president of the white nationalist movement after Trump received praise from former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke. "You had David Duke and other white nationalists actually praising the President of the United States for his words, and why not? He has now officially become the president … not only of America but also of the white nationalist movement,"...
  • NC Gov: Allow Removal Of Confederate Statues Lest Protesters Get Hurt Pulling Them Down

    On Tuesday night North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) called on the state legislature to grant counties, municipalities, and the state the ability to remove Confederate statues lest protesters get hurt pulling them down. NC adopted a law in 2015 that protects historical statues from being removed, and Cooper wants this law reversed. Cooper used a Facebook post to reference the way slaves were once kept in chains in the South. And he criticized the existence of Confederate monuments without mentioning that Southern slave-owners were Democrats and that the Confederacy was a Democrat nation. Rather, he said, “These monuments should...

    Business Insider/AP ^ | Aug 16, 2017 | John Daniszewski
    The events in Charlottesville, Virginia, are an opportunity to take another look at our terminology around "alt-right" and the way that we describe the various racist, neo-Nazi, white nationalist, and white supremacist groups out there. At AP, we have taken the position that the term "alt-right" should be avoided because it is meant as a euphemism to disguise racist aims.

    A Chicago pastor has asked the Emanuel administration to remove the names of two presidents who owned slaves from parks on the South Side, saying the city should not honor slave owners in black communities. A bronze statue of George Washington on horseback stands at the corner of 51st and King Drive, at the northwest entrance to Washington Park. Bishop James Dukes, pastor of Liberation Christian Center, said he wants the statue gone, and he wants George Washingtons name removed from the park. When I see that, I see a person who fought for the liberties, and I see people...
  • After taking down Confederate statues, moving the tombstones of Confederate war dead may be next

    There's a massive amount of commentary today on the drive to remove monuments related to the Confederacy. Statues of generals, political leaders, and prominent citizens during that period in history are coming down all over the South following the violence in Charlottesville. Monuments that remind local citizens of their ancestors who died in the Civil War are also being removed. In truth, Charlottesville is an excuse to do what activists have wanted to do for decades; remove every last reminder that there was, at one time, an independent nation on the American continent based on the idea that humans could...

    Few Americans understand the fundamental transformation of their politics and society since the 1960s when the Civil Rights Act was stood on its head by EEOC compliance chief Alfred W. Bloomrosen. The Civil Rights Act explicitly prohibited racial and gender quotas as methods to combat discrimination, which was mainly a product of history rather than of the motivations of white males. But it is difficult to make history a villain, and social engineering benefits from having a villain to overcome. Thus was the foundation of Identity Politics laid. The initial stage of the new politics was that quotas established privilege...

    An Islamic organization founded in Washington, D.C., by the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas is entering the controversy over Confederate monuments, urging all state and local governments to remove any symbols of the Civil War South. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, is offering to help facilitate the process, providing a template resolution to be introduced by public bodies such as state legislatures, city councils and school districts. CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to fund Hamas, was designated by a Gulf Arab state as a terrorist organization. CAIR has sued the authors of a WND Books expos, Muslim...

    Mitt Romney joined the fray on Tuesday defending the violent club-wielding Antifa terrorists from Charlottesville. An ignorant Mitt Romney defended the Antifa terrorists for rejecting “racism and bigotry.”"No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes." - Mitt Romney  This did not go unnoticed. Romney got schooled on Twitter for defending the violent domestic terrorist group. "The fact that you view Antifa as moral and acceptable is beyond disgusting. No wonder you lost resoundingly in your presidential run." - Alex@SoCal4Trump Ann Coulter tore into the former Republican leader. "The...

    TEL AVIV — H.R. McMaster, the embattled National Security Adviser to President Trump, is threatening U.S. national security by refusing to recognize radical Islamic terrorism, a top terrorism expert told Breitbart News. “The refusal to utter or condemn by name radical Islamic terrorism only helps makes the battle against Islamic terrorism impossible to win,” stated Steven Emerson, executive director of the respected Investigative Project on Terrorism. “If you cannot identify the problem, you cannot beat it.” McMaster’s refusal to “condemn radical Islamic terrorism by name is a threat to our national security,” Emerson posited. Emerson was responding to a...

    Report: Charlottesville Racist Leader Was Former Occupy Activist, Obama Supporter by Joel B. Pollak 15 Aug 2017 The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reports that Jason Kessler, the organizer of last Saturdays white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is rumored to be a former Occupy Wall Street activist and supporter of Barack Obama. The left-wing SPLC is often partisan and overzealous in targeting hate groups, lumping legitimate conservative organizations together with actual extremists. Therefore its identification of Kesslers left-wing roots is significant.

    Jason Kessler is the man who organized the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. One person is dead and at least twenty were injured when a car smashed into protestors who were on the road. There were some curious facts surrounding this event, so we decided to do some digging. What we found raises serious questions about who Jason Kessler is actually working for First of all, the ACLU defended Jason Kessler and forced the city to keep his permit in place. This was after the city raised concerns about the ability of Law Enforcement to keep Antifa, BLM,...

(NEWSPLEX) -- In the days since the violence of the Aug. 12 Unite the Right rally, anger has mounted, some of it directed at the civil rights organizations that represented rally organizer Jason Kessler in his legal fight to keep the rally in Emancipation Park. The Rutherford Institute founder John Whitehead said he doesn't regret taking the case and notes that it's about defending the First Amendment, not supporting the mission of the rally. "If you're going to believe in the...

    Baltimore City Council has voted to remove four Confederate monuments in the city. The move follows protesters pulling down a Confederate memorial in Durham, North Carolina after a deadly weekend of protests over another statue in Charlottesville, Virginia. The council still has to decide whether to destroy the monuments or move them to a museum because of their historical significance. We still emphatically do not want these to be placed on public display anywhere, council member Brandon Scott told WMAR. Scott, who introduced the resolution calling for the destruction of the monuments said, we should melt them down and use...

    State election officials still don’t know which 21 of their jurisdictions Russian hackers targeted, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Secretaries of state — who are the top election officials in 40 states — told TheDCNF they were shocked to learn of the Russian hacking when Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials first divulged it at a June 21, 2017, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing. “We can’t find any secretaries of state who say they have been told they are part of this list of ‘targeted’ states.” said a spokeswoman for the National Association of Secretaries of...

Chest tight, stomach queasy. Feel sick”: Perhaps he should have his testosterone checked. It seems seriously depleted. But then, he does write for Vanity Fair. Magazine editor David Lytle tweeted his empathy for Sherman: “I vomited on election night. Today, I bawled for 20 minutes....
