Neo-Nazi Group Targets Oprah, GA Gov. Candidate Stacey Abrams in Racist Robocalls

Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and Oprah Winfrey — who supports Abrams and knocked on voters' doors for her this week — were targeted in a racist robocall evidently funded by a neo-Nazi group on Friday. The voice on the robocall introduces herself as the “magical negro” Oprah, and calls Abrams a “poor man’s Aunt Jemima,” and a candidate “white women can be tricked into voting for, especially the fat ones.” The call claims it is paid for by TheRoadToPower.com, which previously funded racist robocalls against Florida’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.

3. The work of another "good person" I presume?

After all no one is being mailed bombs or being shot and your store fronts and windows have not been shattered.

4. This hate-full nutcase, Scott Rhodes, has been very busy.

This longer Florida article details a bunch more that he's been up to in various states.

http://floridapolitics.com/archives/tag/road-to-power

The individual behind robocalls targeting Andrew Gillum previously has been involved in racist attacks against California U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein and former President Barack Obama and harassed the family of murdered University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts. ...

The robocalls feature a narrator — supposedly Gillum — speaking in a thick accent, espousing “I’s be the mayor of Tallahassee” and proposing houses be replaced with mud huts after hurricanes. The robocalls also make mention of Republican Ron DeSantis’ recent “monkey this up” gaffe, with the narrator saying “he ignorant.” ...

Rhodes’ group came out in favor of white nationalist Patrick Little’s U.S. Senate campaign in California by funding robocalls calling incumbent Feinstein a “traitorous Jew” and an “Israeli citizen pretending to be an American,” which earned the group international attention and condemnation.

Idaho newspaper The Spokesman-Review carefully chronicled Rhodes’ inflammatory rhetoric since his move to the state from California. Last December, police in Sandpoint, Idaho said Rhodes handed out flyers attacking city leaders, putting CDs with racist audio in cars at a local high school and had been mailing anonymous letters harassing minorities in town. And the Sandpoint Reader also reported Alexandria, Virginia police believed Rhodes had made harassing phone calls to Mayor Allison Silberberg and other city officials. ...

But so far, Rhodes has wallowed in the attention. When MSNBC host Joy Reid today called out the group for the Gillum robocalls, Rhodes on the alt-right social media channel Gab referenced a past Road to Power podcast where he’d called her by a racial slur.

5. I avoid all robo calls by not answering my phones. If it's important

the caller will leave a message. Most robo calls are just a disconnect.

11. And once again, the anti-Semitic component is left out of the discussion.

The racist twaddle and anti-feminist drek need to be called out for the trash it is, but one cannot, must not ignore the anti-Semitic component. For fuck's sake, 11 Jews were just murdered ONE week ago because some immigrant hating POS decided the Jews were responsible for the "caravan".
