The Numbers Don’t Lie: White Far-Right Terrorists Pose a Clear Danger to Us All
“I feel bad for people like that, the Republicans are called the conservative party for a reason, if many of them had their way we’d still have segregation at the very least, being homosexual would be banned and would be treated as a mental illness and women would be treated as obedient robots and would not be able to vote. That’s what many of them want. And many others are more into the future but not enough.”

“WHY PORTLAND HAS BECOME THE EPICENTER OF FAR-RIGHT VIOLENCE IT STARTS WITH Oregon’s history. The state was envisioned as a white utopia and barred black people from residency until 1926. To this day, Portland is the whitest big city in America, with a population that is 77 percent white and less then 6 percent black, and that racial homogeneity has proved for decades to be fertile recruiting ground for racist hate groups.” https://theintercept.com/2019/08/16/portland-far-right-rally/
“Can anyone explain why it is that ppl want Blacks to forget about slavery, yet continue to embrace the Confederacy; which sought to hold on to the institution? How does one go about forgetting slavery when ppl are fighting so viciously to keep the leaders & battles of the Confederacy front & center? Herein lies the epicenter of the problem. You just can’t have it both ways.

“Executive time” and white privilege: Our laziest president and an ugly stereotype Zoned out on Fox News and Mickey D’s, Trump still believes Obama was lazy and he’s a dynamic man of action
For black and brown Americans, Barack Obama’s two terms in office were a rebuke to a society where nonwhites have long been marked as second-class citizens. For black people in particular, the literal presence of Obama’s family in the White House represented a high point in the long, black freedom struggle. In the long arc of history, for centuries black Americans were owned, murdered, abused and raped by whites as human property, and yet a black American had become the most powerful man on the planet.
Of course, Obama’s ascent did not heal the centuries of harm done to black Americans by white racism. But that next chapter in America’s history — where one more “first” for a black person was demolished — was still symbolically intoxicating because it validated a belief in this country’s ability to change for the better.
For many millions of other Americans, the overwhelming majority of them white and conservative, Obama’s presidency represented a personal insult. The very presence of an intelligent, graceful, educated and accomplished black man in the White House — as president, instead of as a maid, janitor or butler — rocked them to the core of their being. If a person inherently connects being a “real American” with whiteness, then a black president is unthinkable. Such a reality forces a cognitive dissonance that cannot be easily reconciled. What was understood to be the natural order of things for white America was turned upside down.
Over the course of those eight years, many white conservatives became lost in the fever swamps of white supremacist paranoia, consumed by an existential dread about some vague notion of black or brown power, manifested in their archenemy and political demon Barack Obama. For too many people, Obama seemed to represent the displacement and obsolescence of white America and the birth of some undiscovered country where nonwhites rule and whites are made to kneel at their feet in submission.
Republicans, along with much of the right-wing media and public — and of course Donald Trump — claimed that Barack Obama was not eligible for the presidency because he was not a “natural born” citizen. This was and is a white supremacist fantasy.” https://www.salon.com/2018/01/11/executive-time-and-white-privilege-our-laziest-president-and-an-ugly-stereotype/

“There’s a covert expectation by even poor whites of white privilege,” he tells the publication. “They feel like even if they’re illiterate, skin color should give them privilege. Even if they are an illiterate, they feel superior to a black president with a Harvard degree.

“Frustrated young white men are facing class divisions more than racial divides
There’s no disputing the white anger and rage seen in Charlottesville, even if conservative publications like the National Review say these “angry white boys do not have a political agenda.”
Their anger is real and grievances differ, even if they took the old path of joining mobs spewing racist filth. Yet these white supremacists are blaming the wrong slices of society for their angst.
Racial divides are not what’s plaguing vast stretches of white America — deepening class divides are. If you think about who is to blame, it is mostly powerful white capitalists and their government servants that decimated regional economies in recent decades.” Why can’t white supremacists confront the fact that the source of their economic problems are white economic elites?
“So here’s what happened in my pristine city yesterday whilst I worked on the other side of town.
Two right-wing groups from Florida held an “End Domestic Terrorism” rally on the Waterfront. One of the groups, the “Proud Boys,” was led by Joe Briggs; an associate of Alex Jones’ InfoWars. In addition to the Proud Boys, the White Nationalist American Guard (a hardcore racist and anti-Semitic group founded in Indiana) and the Three Percenters (an anti-government paramilitary group out of Alabama), joined the mêlée. The Daily Stormers (a neo-Nazi group patterned after Hitler’s SA), were also reportedly in attendance. To their credit, the far-right “Oath Keepers” declined to attend the rally due to the presence of the White Nationalists.
These uninvited guests were confronted by several local liberal organizations, including Rose City “Antifa” (a conjunctive term for anti fascist). Lots of scuffles, thirteen arrests, clubs, poles, bear spray confiscated, but apparently no major violence broke out—amazingly enough. It all unwound when the Florida interlopers quietly asked the Portland Police Bureau to provide them with protection so that they could skedaddle from the scene.
President Donald Trump tweeted in his own 2¢ worth: “Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR. Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!”
Proud Boys organizer Joe Briggs responded to Trump’s tweet: “Go look at President Trump’s Twitter. He talked about Portland, said he’s watching Antifa. That’s all we wanted.”
These punks came to Portland because we’re Portland: The antithesis of who they are and what they represent. But once they realized they were outnumbered and just how unwelcome their message of hate was, they asked our police bureau for help.
So that’s all you need to know about what happened here yesterday. Neo-Nazis, InfoWars, Proud Boys, The Daily Stormers, The White Nationalist American Guard and the Three Percenters all came here to show us how tough they are. They were soon outnumbered by anti-fascist organizations, largely nonviolent, which led to the right-wingers asking for police protection.
👉🏼 And the President of the United States threatened to label the anti-fascists an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Effectively giving tacit support to the forces of racism, bigotry and hate.
And they said it can’t happen here.”

“Because the 40 years of this plutocratic takeover — of the ideology that said if you’re torn between doing what’s good for money and what’s good for people, always do what’s good for money; these stories about lazy workers and welfare queens; and any number of other fraudulent tales that were meant to justify life in the Hamptons — if I allow myself to feel this way on a good day, it all actually feels like it’s burning down.
And on matters of race and identity, likewise, the Trump era doesn’t have the crackle of a launch. It has been a mourning. A mourning for white power. A mourning for a time when simply to be white and show up was enough. A mourning for an era in which simply to be a man, and not necessarily an especially capable one, could get you ahead of other people. A mourning for a time when you could be the default idea of an American and not have to share your toys.
We must understand that what we’ve been living through is backlash.”
BLM did not arise from a political leader or party affiliation. It is unbelievable that it needs to be said, but BLM is not a terrorist organization or a hate group; the KKK most certainly is.
