He just did this...

Last edited Thu Nov 7, 2019, 01:08 AM - Edit history (1)

Context: He starts talking about Antifa. Then makes the hand sign. Intentional? I just took this pic a few minites ago.

Edit: OMG with what he was saying along with this sign...

If anyone knows how to find or make a video clip of that, please let me know.






Thanks dewsgirl for finding a clip

1. Holy Shit look at that guy

Ok, Yes he's signaling White Power obviously. His Klan Daddy, Klan Buddies and his own books show how much of a white supremist he has always been.

But he looks like a B-Movie Golem made from pumpkin pie filling

13. Only he had no brown shirts.

Who were veterans of the vicious trench fighting of WW1 and had seen and participated in slaughter like no American can imagine. And fought in the streets in an organized manner like they did in WW1.

The closest the alt-right has come was Charlottesville which was a cluster fuck and caught law authorizes unaware. And most of those guys are either in jail or living with their parents. It won’t happen again.

The Brownshirts would look upon his fat-assed, chaotic followers with total revulsion.

34. Is anything I said about the Brownshirts wrong? I did not think I needed to add they were evil.

That should be self apparent to anyone in DU. Or hell, any American.

But to compare our diverse society with with our well established norms of behavior to the Brownshirts is not a good analogy.

Their was no Democratic tradition in Germany in the 1920’s. Force had been the entire determinant in their society and they had scant respect for democratic nations who had just defeated them in a war so brutal we can’t understand it.

So in Bavaria it was possible for a political movement to establish a private army of brutal veterans who had killed on a scale we can’t imagine and collectively blamed their loss in the war on the Jews.

But that is not at all analogous to our situation. Trump does not have a private army of disciplined, war veterans ready to march to his command. Even in my reddish community if a group of racist trump supporters decided to take up arms, the republican sheriff and his deputies would meet them with force. Not that it will ever happen. Most trump sticker emblazoned trucks here are driven by retirement age or close to it folks. Not at all like the real Brownshirts who were pretty much a private army.

My point was that comparing us to 1920’s Germany is not a good analogy.

49. You seriously think that's what I was doing?

trump has such a tenuous grip on reality that he apparently thinks that flashing a "white power" sign is enough to alert his "brown shirts" to get ready for action.

I didn't think I needed to add quotation marks around "brown shirts" as it should be self apparent to anyone in DU that it was a reference to trump's delusion that he has forces ready to heed his call to the streets when needed—imagined forces of his and not literal comparisons by me to actual brown shirts.

Thanks for the lesson on German history though.

I would think the color in the photo was just off if it weren't for the contrast between his hand and his face. Did he work himself into a red/orange-faced rage? Fall asleep in the spray-tan booth?

...he displays it so prominently and rigidly at forehead level that I feel he's just out-there adopted it -- the way he gave what was essentially a full-on White Power Rally when he was trying to get Bevin re-elected. Just the part I saw was horrible.

If you were watching in real time you could barely see what exactly he was doing

He has some type of reading disability and when he is struggling to read he is constantly touching his thumb to his second or third finger.

In any case he doesn't conceal his intent. His policies reveal his racist objectives.

What's next? I can't wear a polo shirt or khakis? I can't eat breakfast cereal? I started going bald a few years ago so now I shave my head; that out too?

These guys are by and large just dorks who sit in their basements playing online video games all the time and shitposting on 8chan.. They're dangerous, sure. 8chan can be linked to lots of mass shootings over the past few years, including Christchurch, El Paso, the Garlic Festival, etc.

The things that fuel these guys, however, is showing that they can have some influence on the larger world and not just their narrow sphere. Being able to make people stop using the "OK" sign, is just that type of thing. Look how strong we are, look at our power level! They sit around all day and dream about what they can do to get a rise out of the liberals.

I for one am not going to play that game.

You are however, being informed (accurately) as to a new and directly relevant meaning of that particular usage (usage... not a 'game', but language usage).

My own refusal to use it in the here and now gives no one power, it merely indicates that I'm a) aware of usage, and b) predicated on that, not going out of my way to consciously provoke anyone or illustrate my own vulgarity.

So rejoice, and eat whatever cereal you want. No one is taking that away from you, just pointing out that Sambo's restaurants went bankrupt in 1982 for the same justifications you cite .
