Neo-Nazis, white supremacists and Donald Trump all have deep ties to Russia

Is anyone here truly surprised?


But whether the president knows it or not, even the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally has deep connections to the global white nationalist movement, and the epicenter of that movement is in Moscow under the leadership of Vladimir Putin. Take, for instance, Matthew Heimbach, who was crowned by Think Progress as the “most important white supremacist of 2016″ and was one of the organizers of the Charlottesville event. Heimbach is the man who was arrested at a Trump campaign rally for pushing and screaming at a protester, and who later claimed in court that he believed Trump had “deputized” the crowd to defend him against the protesters.

Heimbach says, “Putin is the leader, really, of the anti-globalist forces around the world” and calls “Russia our most powerful ally” — and by “our,” he means the forces of white nationalism. The Southern Poverty Law Center dubbed him “The Little Führer.” Heimbach is also a member of the World National Conservative Movement, a product of the Russian Imperial Movement (RIM):

The manifesto of the movement claims that the world is governed by the ideology of “liberalism, multiculturalism and tolerance.” This, in the view of the activists, results in “the erosion of nations, massive migration from countries with foreign civilizational bases, falling away from religion, replacement of spirituality by materialism, impoverishment of cultures, destruction of the family and healthy moral values” through “abortion, propaganda of debauchery and acceptance of sexual perversions”. Furthermore, the manifesto refers to the “super-national institutions” such as the EU and NATO, and argues that these forces represent “the global cabal” which, in the Russian cultural discourse, is essentially a euphemistic reference to the global Jewish conspiracy. The WNCM aims to counter liberalism and globalisation by staging a “conservative revolution” and bringing far right parties to power in Western societies.

That sounds strangely familiar doesn’t it?

Heimbach isn’t the only white supremacist Trump follower with a strong connection to Russia. Two years ago, The New York Times reported on a conference in St. Petersburg featuring a big name in right-wing hate: -SNIP- (Con't reading HERE or above for the rest)

2. absolutely

and I posted about this months ago. Putin will stop at nothing to get his assets unfrozen (200B+)Don't count on alt right dissapearing easily, he will fund those extremist groups through phony LLCs and ongoing large scale (worldwide) disinformation campaign until he gets his way. We are entering violent times with alt right militarizing themselves to no end. There is no easy way out of this situation. The treason is quite massive in scale. Trump is building up his army leading up to 'mother of all rallies' in September. For the first time, Russia got a real grip on America with willing enablers and has a chance to help destroy US government, democracy and eventually collapse of the US economy (second great depression).

The apathy is insane in America. I still have friends arguing about Bernie. I'll give them a few more weeks. It's almost like we got so comfortable that we are waiting until it affects us directly.
