Has anyone mentioned...

There were almost no women in the nazi/white nationalist riot this past weekend? You really have to search to see a female face.

1. Their leaders' instructions explicitly say that women don't belong in the movement except

as sideline supporters and groupies or breeders.

7. These white supremacist organizations (Nazis, KKK, RW militias, etc.) are

very much concerned with demonstrating their conception of "manliness."

9. Figures

Kinder, Kirche, Kuche (the last is spelled wrong). Children, church, kitchen...that's where German Nazis said women belong. Interesting it comes out KKK.

2. Yes, I posted about that on Saturday.

Very few women in the crowd.

DUers were trying to find photos depicting women (nazi or white surpremacist) and only several were found.

I also scanned photos for people who looked over age 40--didn't see many of those either.

Most of them looked like privileged, white, college-age men.

3. Generally, women don't want to create or support violence. Nazis want to expand territory

and power by the use of violence as an easy option.

The young white boys in the Nazi gangs don't care about the millions of deaths caused by the Nazis of old. In fact, they rather like the idea of having power over others with genocide and "elimination of enemies" as a fast remedy for ending political conflict. It's not that they're stupid or ignorant. They see their white supremacy as noble and righteous. The fact that it's evil is in the purview of those who think differently. To them, it doesn't matter.

8. 53% of white women voted for Trump.

Don't kid yourself that there are almost no women associated with the men in these groups. They are on the sidelines or at home because that's where they're told to be.

10. Yup

I still can't believe that number of white women voting for him.

"I just couldn't vote for Hillary Clinton. She's so corrupt."
