7. When you think Nazis are good people is it any wonder you would also claim

that white nationalism isn't a threat much less a rising threat? Anyone who calls Nazis good people would see white nationalism as a plus and not a threat.

8. Of course he doesn't think it's a threat as he is a world wide leader in the white nationalist

 

thought process. It's as if he tacitly approves such actions.

9. He knows that's false

But has to lie about it to hide the fact it is rising, and because of people like him, and the Republican Party, who are behind them, and they are being branded as White Nationalist too.

13. He's correct.

It's an active, ongoing, and significant threat, not just a "rising" one. And he's done more to make that happen than just about anyone.

15. He Has To Go

If we survive this horrible aberration it will be interesting to see how history writes of this time....If there is a history ahead.

One thing seems clear....racism endured mostly underground till we elected a man of color. Then they burst forth.

21. "Violence perpetrated by the far right is on the rise"

The U.S. Anti-Defamation League attempts a broader count, stressing murderersí links with far-right organizations rather than their stated motives. According to the group, right-wing extremists were responsible for 70 percent of the 427 extremist-related killings that occurred in the U.S. in the past 10 years. In 2018, every one of the perpetrators of the 37 extremist-related murders in the U.S. had ties to at least one far-right movement, although one had recently switched to supporting Islamist extremism, the ADL says.

Importantly, the number of incidents of violence perpetrated by the far right is on the rise. The Institute for Economics and Peace noted in its 2018 Global Terrorism Index report that the number of such killings increased from three in 2014 to 17 in 2017.

Meanwhile, Islamist-inspired terrorism appears to be on the wane, with the attempt to create a caliphate in the Middle East roundly defeated and the ideal of pure Islamic statehood losing its attractiveness to the assorted misfits among the Westís Muslim minorities. According to Janeís Terrorism and Insurgency Centerís Global Attack Index, fatalities linked to Islamic State declined by 51.5 percent in 2018.

and participate in unprotected sex, and not keep track of refugee children after yanking them from parents, and allowing industry to pollute our air and water without control, and throw harmful tariffs on nations that are our allies, and......

the list goes on forever...... .......

31. Do you ever notice that when it comes to the KKK, racists, white nationalists, etc.,

Kevin M. Kruse Retweeted

Do you ever notice that when it comes to the KKK, racists, white nationalists, etc., Trump always "doesn't know enough about it" to have an opinion?

Which is funny because he claims to know more than military generals, etymologists, nuclear physicists, scientists. and doctors.🤔
