What sort of people become white nationalists? - Separated and unequal
the move from talking tough online to showing one’s face in the physical world had actual consequences. Some of the attendees at last year’s rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, lost their jobs and were publicly shamed; others faced lawsuits. Tech firms booted and shunned them.

On the eve of the march, George Hawley, a political scientist at the University of Alabama, dug into the demography of white nationalists—in particular, into the thesis advanced by Angela Nagle, the author of a book about the alt-right, that the decline of monogamy and traditional marriage has led low-status men to assert themselves through white-supremacist beliefs.

Mr Hawley posited three factors linking adherents of racist movements: a strong sense of white identity, belief in the importance of white solidarity and a sense of white victimisation. In 2016 the American National Election Survey asked respondents three revealing questions: on a five-point scale, they were to indicate how important race is to their identity, how important they think it is that “whites work together to change laws that are unfair to whites,” and how much discrimination they think whites face in America.

Four Mass Shootings Have Been Thwarted Since the El Paso Massacre, Authorities Say – Mother Jones
All four individuals arrested since El Paso for allegedly plotting mass shootings were heavily armed young white men. At least three of the four appeared to harbor hateful far-right views, especially toward Jewish, African American, and LGBTQ people.

Memo reveals a House Republican strategy on shootings: downplay white nationalism, blame left | Tampa Bay Times
Congressional Republicans recently circulated talking points on gun violence that falsely described the El Paso massacre and other mass shootings as “violence from the left.”

A document obtained by the Tampa Bay Times and sent by House Republicans provides a framework for how to respond to anticipated questions like, “Why won’t you pass legislation to close the ‘gun show loophole’ in federal law?” and “Why shouldn’t we ban high-capacity magazines?" The answers are boilerplate Republican arguments against tougher gun restrictions.

But it also included this question: “Do you believe white nationalism is driving more mass shootings recently?” The suggested response is to steer the conversation away from white nationalism to an argument that implies both sides are to blame.

EXCLUSIVE Republican lawmakers are being told to... - Pamela Mays McDonald
Republican lawmakers are being told to indulge in "both-siderism" to counter gun control arguments in the wake of domestic terror incidents. They are being instructed to distract from questions about white supremacism with #whataboutism lies about non-right-wing organizations and individuals. Expect to see this strategy continue to unfold as these instances proliferate. You'll hear "But Planned Parenthood kills babies" or other classic defenses. Online "sock puppets," trolls and bots will amplify these messages to millions. We have already seen Trump call for Antifa to be labeled as terrorists over the weekend.

They are not going to do anything about the threat of white nationalist domestic terrorism.

Tearing Off the Mask: Revealing the Gulf Between Fascist Spirituality and Pagan Practice
For fascists the Powers of Norse Paganism are convenient tokens for justifying their actions and hiding their true intentions. There is no space in their ideology for compassion and no fascist should be given hospitality or safe haven in our communities unless they have conclusively, unquestionably and totally renounced their former affiliations while also making a genuine effort to heal the harm of their actions and former associates.

For White Women Learning Calculus in a School Building On Fire
So from one white woman to another, ten concrete steps to take right now if we hope to ever do math with women of color; the very math the doing of which is not optional if there is to be any hope of calling into existence the deep, robust multi-racial coalitions on which all of our lives depend.

No particular order here. Some of these steps fall in the category of “for the love of god, stop pouring gasoline!” Some fall in the category of our long, slow work. None is adequate. All are critical.

(4) Jan Steckel - So there was supposed to be a meet-up of the Proud...
So there was supposed to be a meet-up of the Proud Boys, an alt-right group, at Make Westing bar in Oakland tonight. Make Westing wasn't having any, and helped organize a protest against the meeting. Last night, however, a white man named John Cowell, who had recently been released from state prison for second-degree robbery, slit the throat of a Black teenager named #NiaWilson and stabbed her sister in the neck at Macarthur BART station. The injured sister held Nia while she bled to death. Today a thousand people marched for Nia in downtown Oakland. The Bay Area Proud Boys disavowed both the killer and the meet-up, which they claimed they hadn't set up and wouldn't attend. John Cowell was captured at Pleasant Hill BART station after he stood next to a young Black woman on the outbound train to Antioch. The young woman recognized his face (from surveillance photos which had been publicized), moved away from him, and called the police in terror while he stood next to another Black woman. Meanwhile, a crowd of 1,000 marched from a vigil for Nia Wilson to Make Westing, where five Proud Boys had the stupidity to show up. The crowd chased the Proud Boys, at which point the police intervened to protect them, drove them off in a squad car, and tear-gassed the crowd.

(60) Nichola Torbett - Okay, I can already hear how this is going to...
Okay, I can already hear how this is going to get spun, so I want to tell you what I saw with my own eyes. The community was gathered in a powerful, deeply felt, peaceful vigil and march in honor of the life of Nia Wilson and in protest of white supremacist violence. Some white supremacists showed up at the edge of the crowd, and the crowd began moving toward them to back them off, away from our folks. They ran, and others gave chase. At that point, I lost sight of them. When I came around the corner a few minutes later, the police had one of the white supremacist in handcuffs, seemingly taking him into protective custody. They also had at least one black man in cuffs. From what I could see, and from what everyone around me was saying, he had done absolutely nothing to warrant arrest. Folks were chanting, 'Let him go." Next thing I knew the street was filling up with police who were donning riot gear. I heard the command for the police to form a scrimmage line and at that point, I thought it best to walk away. I know the headline is going to say that the memorial turned violent. The memorial did NO SUCH THING. Violent people showed up, and the police colluded with them.

Status threat, not economic hardship, explains the 2016 presidential vote | PNAS
When the people have spoken, the postelection narrative decides what it is they have said. Based on these results, it would be a mistake for people to understand the 2016 election as resulting from the frustration of those left behind economically. Instead, both experimental evidence and panel survey evidence document significant political consequences from a rising sense of status threat among dominant groups in the United States.

Lack of a college education was persistently noted as the strongest predictor of Trump support. This pattern led journalists with limited data toward economic explanations. However, education is also the strongest predictor of support for international trade, a relationship that is not tied to income or occupation so much as ethnocentrism (52). Negative attitudes toward racial and ethnic diversity are also correlated with low levels of education. In this election, education represented group status threat rather than being left behind economically. Those who felt that the hierarchy was being upended—with whites discriminated against more than blacks, Christians discriminated against more than Muslims, and men discriminated against more than women—were most likely to support Trump.

Turns out that the 'Antifa' group claiming they protested Red Sox game are actually right wingers
Racism Is as American as Baseball.”
WEEI and other traditional media outlets reported on Thursday that a Boston Antifa group took credit for the protest. WEEI has conveniently pulled down the post without an update or retraction. Why have they pulled it down?

The actual protesters who hung the banner denied any connection to Boston Antifa in an interview with CSNNE. And the people behind the social media pages do not actually believe the things they say -- because they are a pair of anti-leftist pranksters from Oregon who started Boston Antifa as a parody of actual anti-fascist groups.

Brandon and Alexis, whose Antifa characters "Dustin" and "Quinn" opine on subjects like how fidget spinners can trigger PTSD in hurricane victims, said as much last April in an interview with right-wing media personality Gavin McInnes.
In April, controversial right-wing personality, Gavin McInnes interviewed a couple said to be behind the group, in a segment called “Fun with fake ‘Antifa’ pranksters! Guests: @AntifaBoston.”

“There has been a tsunami of fake Antifa Twitter accounts and even videos,” McInnes said. “We spoke to one such group, first as their alter-egos ‘Boston Antifa,’ and then as themselves.”
McInnes is an “alt right” white supremacist who began a group called “The Proud Boys,” whose “pride” seems to reside in them being racist-snowflakes.

The Distress of the Privileged | The Weekly Sift
 As the culture evolves, people who benefitted from the old ways invariably see themselves as victims of change. The world used to fit them like a glove, but it no longer does. Increasingly, they find themselves in unfamiliar situations that feel unfair or even unsafe. Their concerns used to take center stage, but now they must compete with the formerly invisible concerns of others.

If you are one of the newly-visible others, this all sounds whiny compared to the problems you face every day. It’s tempting to blast through such privileged resistance with anger and insult.

Tempting, but also, I think, a mistake. The privileged are still privileged enough to foment a counter-revolution, if their frustrated sense of entitlement hardens.

So I think it’s worthwhile to spend a minute or two looking at the world from George Parker’s point of view: He’s a good 1950s TV father. He never set out to be the bad guy. He never meant to stifle his wife’s humanity or enforce a dull conformity on his kids. Nobody ever asked him whether the world should be black-and-white; it just was.

George never demanded a privileged role, he just uncritically accepted the role society assigned him and played it to the best of his ability. And now suddenly that society isn’t working for the people he loves, and they’re blaming him.

It seems so unfair. He doesn’t want anybody to be unhappy. He just wants dinner.

APTP statement on OPD shooting of white supremacist terror suspect Jesse Enjaian — APTP
Disturbingly, local media coverage of OPD’s accidental killing (they elected not to shoot to hit center mass) of Enjaian parallels that of the convicted rapist who happened to attend Stanford University and of the many white men who have used firearms to commit terror attacks on communities of color in recent history. The assumption is that past academic or sports achievements somehow negate a propensity for predatory behavior. Examples and research demonstrating the very consistent profile of mass shooters in the United States show us that this is an intellectually lazy assertion. SFGate reports that Enjaian’s prior stalking victim in Michigan, “submitted a complaint that Enjaian had a gun and had expressed interest in using it in an “act of mass homicide.””

Media reports paint Bissonnette as a loner with right-wing views.


According to La Presse, Bissonnette is a political science student at Laval University, who was known to troll a Facebook group for refugees. Group administrator François Deschamps told La Presse that Bissonnette was generally xenophobic and used the term "feminazi."

What happened to black Germans under the Nazis | The Independent
The 1935 Nuremberg Laws stripped Jews of their German citizenship and prohibited them from marrying or having sexual relations with “people of German blood”.

A subsequent ruling confirmed that black people (like “gypsies”) were to be regarded as being “of alien blood” and subject to the Nuremberg principles. Very few people of African descent had German citizenship, even if they were born in Germany, but this became irreversible when they were given passports that designated them as “stateless negroes”.

Goebbels love nest could be demolished over 'Nazi shrine' fears
In 1941, black children were officially excluded from public schools, but most of them had suffered racial abuse in their classrooms much earlier. Some were forced out of school and none were permitted to go on to university or professional training. Published interviews and memoirs by both men and women, unpublished testimony and post-war compensation claims testify to these and other shared experiences.

Employment prospects which were already poor before 1933 got worse afterwards. Unable to find regular work, some were drafted for forced labour as “foreign workers” during World War II. Films and stage shows making propaganda for the return of Germany’s African colonies became one of the few sources of income, especially after black people were banned from other kinds of public performance in 1939.

The murder of Alan Berg in Denver: 25 years later – The Denver Post
Even after a quarter century, the violent murder of Denver talk-radio icon Alan Berg at the hands of a white supremacist group reverberates amid fresh reminders of hate crimes.

It has been 25 years since Berg was gunned down in the driveway of his Congress Park condominium, and the commemoration comes just days after a white supremacist allegedly opened fire at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., killing a security guard.

Berg, who was Jewish, gained a strong following in the early 1980s through talk radio, where his liberal views mixed with a combative and often-abrasive on-air persona. In the process, he ignited the anger of The Order, a splinter group of the Aryan Nation white nationalist movement that financed its anti-government goals with bank robberies in the Pacific Northwest — before turning to murder.

True Confessions Of A White Supremacist - The Establishment
How am I a white supremacist? Well, I was born and raised in the United States of America, a country built by slave labor on stolen land, and every privilege I’ve ever enjoyed has come at the expense of someone else’s oppression. The education I received was white supremacist education, from its demand that I learn to write and speak “proper English” to its reliance on a literary, scientific, and artistic canon comprised of and curated almost exclusively by white men. My aesthetic tastes are permeated with subtle coding that extends subconscious preference to those who look like me and communicate themselves in a way I can identify with. I have interjected my unwanted, unwarranted opinion into conversations that are out of my lane, and I have chosen to look the other way rather than confront instances of racism because of cowardice, complacency, and a misplaced sense of politeness. The very foundations of my way of life are in white supremacy, and the list of microaggressions I have committed, and will no doubt continue to commit in spite of my “good intentions” for as long as I’m alive, is virtually endless.

Does this mean I should just give up trying to fight my own colonizing, racist impulses? On the contrary, I see this as a call to fight harder, to never stop working on this part of myself. But at no point, now or in the future, will I ever be entitled to declare this work done. I will never be able to truthfully announce “There is not a racist bone in my body!” as though racism is something that could be surgically removed. My racism is a chronic, inherited condition. I can medicate the symptoms, and with effort I can even loosen its grip around my soul, but it will always be part of me, like green eyes or a predilection for dumb puns.

White Terrorism: The White Supremacy of Anti-Abortion Extremism -
For white supremacists, the decline in the number of white births is directly tied to their fear of a decline in white dominance in the U.S.  In this worldview, fewer white births is due to two factors. First, they contend there are fewer white women are who are willing to become pregnant and give birth to white children. Second, they believe that white women are quick to have abortions (or easily persuaded to do so) and are nonchalant about them afterwards.

The apparent willingness of white women to have abortions is counterposed against both anti-Blackness and anti-Semitism. For white supremacists are convinced that white women are having too many abortions, but Black women are having too few. And, they believe that Jewish men (mostly as doctors) and Jewish women (as feminists and champions of abortion) are behind this as a form of racial annihilation. I saw this again and again in the text of the publications I analyzed, as well as in the illustrations.
