5 White Supremacists Whining About How Unfair Things Are After Charlottesville

No snowflake melts quite so easily as a neo-Nazi, or a white supremacist, or an alt-rightie, or an identitarian, or whatever obfuscatory name racists are hiding behind this week. That’s been clear in the aftermath of Charlottesville, Virginia.

As a reminder, Unite the Right’s explicit purpose was to bring together all of Donald Trump’s most fervent fans, from the alt-right to the Ku Klux Klan, in the fight to preserve a memorial to a U.S. traitor, one Robert E. Lee. Those various factions “spent months openly planning” for the violence that ultimately resulted in Charlottesville, as Mother Jones notes. “The Daily Stormer, a popular neo-Nazi website, encouraged rally attendees to bring shields, pepper spray, and fascist flags and flagpoles. A prominent racist podcast told its listeners to come carrying guns. ‘Bring whatever you need, that you feel you need for your self defense. Do what you need to do for security of your own person,’ said Mike ‘Enoch’ Peinovich on The Right Stuff podcast.”

The result was that 19 people were injured, and Heather Hayer was killed by a white nationalist terrorist who used his car as a weapon.

There’s been a bit of a backlash against this active, vocal segment of Trump’s base in the days since. And suddenly, those same white supremacists, the ones who are always telling black folks to suck it up, are whining about how unfair it all is. Which shouldn’t be surprising. They exist in a perpetual state of imagined victimhood to begin with, and it’s only grown more acute.

Here are five white supremacists who are whining in the aftermath of Charlottesville.

1. Christopher Cantwell

Who this guy is: Cantwell told the SPLC that his mission is “to normalize racism” and that anyone who “gets in my way is going to find themselves in a very long list of people who regretted underestimating me.” In 2000, he served time for criminal possession of stolen property, criminal possession of a weapon and drunk driving, then a few years later, returned to prison for another brief stint for driving while intoxicated. This upstanding citizen and moral arbiter told Vice that in “every single case” of unarmed black people murdered by police, “it’s some little black asshole behaving like a savage and he gets himself in trouble.” He also told the outlet he wants a Trump-like leader “who does not give his daughter to a Jew,” and declared he and his white supremacist buddies “are not nonviolent. We’ll f**king kill these people if we have to.” In another scene, he braggingly displays five guns and a knife he carried in Charlottesville, and suggests Heather Heyer was part of a group of “stupid animals” who didn’t “get out of the way” of her killer’s car. He goes on to call Heyer’s murder “more than justified…I think that a lot more people are going to die before we’re done here.”

Why is this white supremacist whining? In a video posted Wednesday, Cantwell sniffles and tears up—without shedding any actual tears!—in response to reports that a warrant has been issued for his arrest. He insists he and the other neo-Nazis are the real victims, and that his arsenal of weapons and threats to “kill these people” was no big.

“I know we talk a lot of shit on the internet…I want to be peaceful,” says Cantwell, who gets a “D” for effort. “I’m watching CNN talk about this as a violent, white nationalist protest. We have done everything in our power to keep this peaceful!” he adds.

2. Tim ‘Baked Alaska’ Gionet

Who this guy is: Gionet, better known as “Baked Alaska,” is one of the most well-known alt-righties. On the same day he paraded with the other proud fascists chanting “Jews will not replace us,” he also tweeted the “14 words,” a neo-Nazi mantra: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” (The phrase was coined by a white supremacist martyred in Nazi circles for killing a Jew.) This wasn’t a special way to get the troops riled for rioting in Charlottesville. Au contraire, as Gizmodo notes, Gionet tweets the 14 words all the time. In July, he sent a tweet depicting Jewish alt-righter Laura Loomer in a gas chamber. This guy was actually disinvited from the notoriously anti-Semitic alt-right’s Trump inauguration celebration for going too hard on the public displays of anti-Semitism. Here’s footage of him Friday at the neo-Nazi tiki-riot shouting about how proud he is to be white and yelling, “Hail victory!” (the English translation of “Sieg Heil”).

Why is this white supremacist whining? For starters, Gionet claims he was maced Saturday in Charlottesville. (Because Gionet and his friends seemed to catch every other second of themselves on camera except for the actual macing, and he was the only person in his crowd affected by the mace, some are dubious of this account. We actually believe him, though.) After the incident, Gionet changed his tone, tweeting that we should all “come together as a country.”

That lasted for like, a day? Then he was back to tweeting anti-immigrant messages and retweeting Trump’s pro-Confederate rants.

3. ‘Millennial’ Matt Colligan

Who this guy is: A close companion of Gionet’s, Colligan is the hipster-mustachioed dude in this viral photo from the neo-fascist tiki torch rally. Since Charlottesville, Twitter shut down his account, which was full of Holocaust denialism and Hitler praise. Gizmodo did a bang-up job of compiling screen grabs and tweets (and a picture of his Twitter profile, which featured photos of his own face alongside pics of David Duke and Joseph Goebbels). Colligan’s favorite thing to tweet was “Hitler did nothing wrong.” For example, here he is “pranking” Shia LeBoeuf (who’s also totally problematic, but stay focused) by saying it on video! In footage that’s been removed since Charlottesville, Gizmodo quotes Colligan as stating, “The truth is, the Holocaust is one of the biggest hoaxes in world history. It’s one of the biggest lies ever perpetrated against the human race.” He also once tweeted that Nazi soldiers were treated worse than Jews at Auschwitz.

Why is this white supremacist whining? We do not, by any means, ever advocate violence or threats of violence against people, whatever their beliefs. But in a video posted Sunday in which he bemoans incoming threats—which again, we condemn—against himself and his family, Colligan suggests that all those statements he made were just for laughs. Now that he’s under attack, it’s different.

“This is horrible,” Colligan says. “What’s happening today is horrible. This is a very dark time for America.”

Yeah it is. Because you and your neo-Nazi friends are trying to make this place inhospitable for lots of us.

“I’m usually a jokester,” Colligan adds. “I do a lot of comedy, but there’s nothing funny about threatening people’s lives, threatening people’s families.”

Still reading? Cool. Just checking the lack of self-reflection didn’t stun you into a stupor.

4. Peter Cvjetanovic

Who this guy is: Cvjetanovic became the alt-reich poster boy after his screaming visage at the torch riot went viral. He identifies as a “white nationalist,” and told a local Nevada news outlet “the replacement of the statue will be the slow replacement of white heritage within the United States and the people who fought and defended and built their homeland. Robert E Lee is a great example of that. He wasn’t a perfect man, but I want to honor and respect what he stood for during his time.”

For the record, Lee stood for slavery.

Why is this white supremacist whining? Cvjetanovic says things are “spiraling out of control” with his newfound fame. In one interview, he said he hoped people would be “willing to listen that I’m not the angry racist they see in that photo.” (Then he went on to give the quote praising Lee, above.) In another interview, below, Cvjetanovic does a whole spiel in which he makes white nationalism sound like a cooperative society for the preservation and maintenance of multiple distinct but authentically American cultures, instead of a philosophy that POC should GTFOH. Nope.

5. This White Supremacist Who Changed His Clothes and Hid in the Privilege of His White Skin

Who this guy is: Some guy who got separated from the rest of the white supremacists and found himself fearful and alone among counter-protesters. So he did what no person of color could have done among a group of violent neo-Nazis: stripped off his neo-fascist costume (polo shirt and khaki shorts) and slipped seamlessly into the crowd.

No counter-protesters attacked him, even as they watched him shed his uniform. Documentarian CJ Hunt, who is South Asian, captured the entire incident in the scene below. Hunt noted in a column at GQ that the white supremacist then “slip[ped] shirtless and undetected through a crowd like a child playing capture the flag, taking his free walk back to his side. White terror, his sword. White innocence, his shield.”

Why is this white supremacist whining? “I’m not really white power, man. I just came here for the fun,” he shouts while removing his shirt. When Hunt challenges him on taking off his “costume,” he explains that his idea of fun is committing acts of racial terror. “It’s kind of a fun idea. Just being able to say ‘white power,’ you know?”

Hunt uses the incident to illustrate the power of white supremacy:

Since I’m a person of color, my identity is not a uniform I can take off when I am feeling unsafe—when I’m stopped by police or when my white girlfriend and I travel through southern towns where Confederate flags billow from porches and pickup trucks. Like all minorities, I’ve grown used to the way that difference marks me—the burden of being ever ready for the moment my skin turns me into a target for angry white men determined to take back what they think the world owes them.

The video of this part-time Nazi, this junior secessionist, is a perfect portrait of the very white privilege the so-called “alt-right” decries as liberal fiction. White privilege isn’t just an easy bank loan or the cumulative effects of discriminatory housing policy. It’s also the privilege to disappear. The privilege to terrorize a community and return to your regular life with the ease of peeling off a polo shirt. The privilege to come to someone else’s town, invoke the symbols and slogans used to terrorize Jews, African-Americans, and countless other races in history’s darkest chapters, and pretend it’s simply your way of showing ethnic pride. It’s the privilege to engage in terror “for fun,” and the privilege to walk away. For most of my life, I’ve thought of racism as the vestiges of a dying generation. It’s far more terrifying to behold a sea of young people for whom white supremacy is just a rec-league sport.

I followed the young man, watching him slip shirtless and undetected through a crowd like a child playing capture the flag, taking his free walk back to his side. White terror, his sword. White innocence, his shield. I looked on in horror and envy as he disappeared into the scrum, neither of us knowing that somewhere on a crowded street less than a mile away, others would not be so lucky.

    Kushner is a Jew. Second thing is trump might have saved his daughter for himself. Third, I am a person of color. When I put my hand down on a white sheet of paper, it is several shades darker and actually has color. Fourth, pictures of those who are saying the White race is superior are not showing any superior looking people. Fat slobs with it all handing out.

      After i lost my previous job six months ago, i’ve had luck to find about this superb website that was a life saver… make $85 every hour and get paid at the end of each week …They offer online home-based work. My last month check after working with them for 3 months was $12000… Amazing thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing and reliable internet…

      I think what bothers me most about these whiners is that they have NO reason to whine. Republican states they live in are notoriously the biggest feeders at the federal trough.

      The top 10 states that get back the highest ROI for the $1 they pay in federal taxes are ALL Republican states. This means they get more than their fair share.

      Yet, they feel “left back.” Well, it doesn’t take Einstein to figure out why. They live as if they want a redoux of the Confederacy. They want to make coal mining the number one industry when it simply is not going to ever happen.

      They fight for industries that are largely on their way out and then wonder why they have no jobs. They do nothing to create jobs in their states, preferring to live off Dem state tax dollars instead.

      Why does KS, MO, MS, AL, LA, KY, TN and GA rely on prison industries to keep the federal tax dollars coming? Why do the Republican states want war to be a corporate business if not to take full advantage of defense dollars which today is more than 45% of every budget?

      Meanwhile, they whine they have no jobs? Well maybe it’s time they do what Dem states do all the time: Create jobs and businesses.

      California has the 5th largest economy in the WORLD. A fact that Republicans hate so intensely they do all they can to force more money out of CA for their Republican states.

        California is one of the most diverse states their is. They built the computer industry. Their quality of education is the best in the nation. Because of their diversity, they are busy thinking. Bible belt states deter thinking. If people think, they might take their millions or pennies and nickles away from the megachurches. There are some pretty steep downsides to controlling body and soul.

          When “culture” and “tradition” are overriding factors that defeat innovation and progress, you get what we see all across the south and midwest. How much of this is due to the people in these or their elected officials is anyone’s guess.

          Like all excuse “makers,” the Republican Party’s attempt to “turn back the clock” and “take BACK their country,” has failed miserably.

          The absurdity of the Tea Party’s idea that they would FORCE the most progressive, innovative states to become stagnant due to federal defunding by the misguided Republican Party, was never going to happen.

          Extremism is the by product of absurdity. So when we see White Supremacists boldly armed and wearing cammos in their unregulated militia rallies, we laugh at them. And, we fight back. These are not people for whom “turning the other cheek” ever works. They are too lacking in initiative and ambition and too under educated.

            If he’s so excited about wearing cammos….maybe he should enlist in the military….after all, Trump is sending about 4,000 more troops to Afghanistan and these right-wing idiots can shoot all the guns they want and wear ALL the cammo they can put on their puny bodies!!! Personally, they wouldn’t last 10 minutes in real conflict!!

            Like you, I find it awfully strange how these cammo wearing assault weapon armed bullies actually think they are the only power on earth.

            Trump’s speech about his so called “military plan” for Afghanistan is going to result in his biggest failure yet. You know why.

            He said nothing that 4 other presidents have not said and knew about Afghanistan.

            I have two military friends, one a male and the other a female who served 2 tours of duty each in Afghanistan the male under Clinton and Bush ’43 and the female under Obama.

            They both were there. They both say the same thing. The biggest problem with Afghanistan is opium. It’s everywhere just as the drug trade in Mexico is. And, worse, Afghan farmers all know there is wealth attached to the opium growing. There is none for growing turnips.

            This is where Trump gets it all wrong.He actually believes this is a military coup d’etat for him and his troops. Prediction: It will be Viet Nam all over again. And no. We will not win because as any military person who served in Afghanistan knows, Afghans support the Taliban. It’s why their election in 2014 overwhelmingly support Taliban leaders.

            I knew opium was a BIG crop in the Middle East, but I didn’t realize that it was a big cause of why the Middle East will never see peace! Trump will do what others have tried, and he will fail. He may think that he has the brains and power to win this war, but so did the president when we were in Viet Nam. Look what happened there….we put our tail between our legs and slunk off to lick our wounds! We will NEVER prevail in the Middle East and should never have gone in there in the first place (we can thank Bush II for that!). The entire Taliban, etc. came about because of the war with Iran (or was it Iraq…who can keep up) and the toppling of Saddam. The separation of the parties, Shi’it and Baath is what caused the Taliban to be formed. This would NEVER have occurred without Bush’s interference!

            It isn’t the entire cause. Afghanistan like so many other Middle Eastern countries is very similar to the southern and midwestern US states. Religion is very much an ingrained part of their culture.

            Iran never was a US enemy until Reagan and Bush ’41 decided to use the CIA to depose the Shah of Iran in February 1979. This was a huge mistake.

            When Shah Reza Pahlavi was overthrown with US CIA help, the CIA replaced him with Mohammed Mossaddegh, Iran’s former prime minister in the late 50s.

            The motive for this action was all about OIL. Iran has the largest supply of oil in the Middle East, more than even the Saudis. When you piece together what happened to this CIA overthrow, you see the proof of why the Shah was deposed. He wanted Iran’s oil to remain in Iranian control, not US control. So the CIA deposed him. But Mossaddegh double crossed the CIA and Bush ’41, then Reagan’s VP and former head of the CIA under Nixon.

            The US tried to replace Shah Reza Pahlavi but that backfired too. By then, Iran had had just about enough of US interference in their government and the Iranian Revolution broke out in 1979 when the first US sanctions were placed on Iran. The 2nd sanctions were expanded in 1995 and included all US firms dealing with Iran.

            Of course, what was not exposed was the real reason for those sanctions: To get even for doulbe crossing the US and the US sudden cozying up to Saudi oil.

            Trump is just in a rush to start a war somewhere….he doesn’t really care where….North Korea, Venezuela, and back in Afghanistan. As I said many times during his campaign….if elected, he’s going to end up causing a depression or taking us into a war! He apparently doesn’t understand that we have to PAY for this war, and the only way to do that (which Bush found out) is to raise taxes…..I don’t think his wealthy friends will appreciate that. Plus, I think he needs to get some permission from Congress, and he isn’t actually in their good graces lately!

            When Lard Ass sent that Executive Order allowing the Joint Chiefs to make ALL military decisions, the Head of the Joint Chiefs, Joseph Dunsford refused to sign it.

            You can guess why. They don’t trust Trump not to delegate ALL war responsibilities of the Commander-in-Chief to the Joint Chiefs and then when it all goes wrong, blame the military while Lard Ass struts around like Mussolini.

            I just read an article that said that General Mattis doesn’t even KNOW how many troops are already in Afghanistan, but it’s much more than was noted. There’s also something that says we can only have so many troops there and no more…..and we may already be above that number. Apparently, the Pentagon has not been keeping good records of how many troops are in Afghanistan already…..they’re sure going to find out!
            As for your comment, I agree wholeheartedly…he tends to delegate things so that if they go wrong, he won’t be the one that takes the blame….unfortunately, the buck stops at his desk since he’s the Commander in Chief!!

          10. Eleanore Whitaker August 24, 2017

            What makes me think Mattis is not being told the truth by Trump or his so called aides? His particular CEO style warrants “need to know” and guess who gets to decide “who” needs to know?

            If there are limitations, it may be due to an agreement that still exists between Karzai who left as Afghanistan’s president in 2014 and the US government.

            I’ve been watching those old black and white WII documentaries about Hitler. It gives me an eerie feeling when I see the direction Trump is taking that matches almost precisely that of Hitler.

            Putin is, of himself, still part of Cold War Russia. He may dress and act as if he lives in the present, but his fondest desire is a return to the same Kremlin power of Krushchev. But, to Krushchev’s credit he knew to back off when JFK and RFK stood up to him. Moron Trump is hot to instigate a war, any war, because he believes only war will save him from being soundly kicked out of the White House.

            That’s why he chooses to rally ONLY in states where open carry is allowed in large crowds. NY and NJ would NEVER allow guns in protests or any large crowd. We already know what 9/11 was like.

            So Trump figures he will start a war on US streets and one in North Korea. The joke is the real reason Kim Jung Un backed off: Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other foreign leaders went behind Trump’s back and met with KJU. Now Trump will swagger and strut, sputter and rant that HE and no other US president has ever force North Korea to back off. At which point, Trudeau and these other leaders will make a world class fool of him.

            It’s pretty easy to make a fool out of Trump…..he does it to himself on a daily basis!! As for starting a war….yeah, he’s ready to go, but he doesn’t realize that (1) Congress has the decision on whether or not we go to war…..not Trump; and (2) wars cost money and can jack up the country’s debt to unforeseen limits…..much of which happened under Bush II’s administration that was never paid for (and had to be paid for by President Obama). For someone who promised his followers to lower the debt…this would NOT be a wise plan on his part! But, then again, when has Trump EVER been considered wise?

            The likelihood is that the Republican Party is going to sit out Mueller’s final findings to get rid of Trump, so they can pretend they are not connected to the Trump disaster.

            But it is a foregone conclusion the GOP is not going to allow Trump to run in 2020. My prediction is that when Trump fired former RNC Chairman, Reince Priebus, who is a close ally of Paul Ryan, since both are from WI’s GOP, Ryan will be the GOP front runner in 2020.

            The problem I see is that Pence will have Ryan for his opponent. In a GOP runoff the nutbag extremists of the Tea Party Like Ryan and Priebus, their so called base will go for Ryan solidly. That would put every dime of SS, Medicare in their Wall Street bank accounts.

            Ryan is not well liked in his own state or so some of my WI friends tell me. His own town of Janesville is a ghost town because they so heavily relied on a single industry for jobs and their municipal economy. Typical story in the south and midwest. Ironically, Ryan can lambaste Pence by blaming Indiana for stealing away Janesville’s ONLY industry.

          Awww…purty Kurty is proving he’s math challenged. You don’t get to be the worlds 5th largest economy by being in debt to taxpayers. Now cheese brain. Here is what debt in US comes from:
          MS. No. 1 in welfare, illegitimate kids abandoned by their beer swilling high school drop out daddies. No. 1 in phony SSDI. All of which they own to Dem state taxpayers. Not to their state.

          Then, you factor in Alaska, No. 1 in the amount of ROI they get back for the $1 they pay…$1.87 for every $1. Dem state taxpayers pay for that.

          TexASS? No. 2…$1.78 for that lousy $1 they pay into the federal kitty.

          The other 8 are ALL Republican states trough feeders. Dem states like mine? We get 55 cents for our $1.

          I love defending the Dem state that is 5th IN THE WORLD. Where is TX? Where is KS, Where is LA? Where is KY? Where is FL? Where is NC and SC? All get back $1.35 or more for the lousy $1 they put into the federal kitty.

          NY gets 58 cents. MA, RI, CT, VT and NH all get the same.

          Get off that lazy bum right wing Lard Ass and get an education. You can find the trough feeder bad news at the GAO.gov. If you have the balls.

            I hate to let Mr. Kruse know that, as a Californian, I’m in a position to know better what is going on in MY state, and we are FAR from going bankrupt. In fact, we have had a balanced budget for the past several years. Sure, we need more money and need to deal with our infrastructure, etc., but we pay our bills and are doing just fine, thank you! This idiot is only showing his ignorance! Plus, most of our federal tax money goes to support those Southern states, which is pretty ridiculous! If California ever seceded from the U.S., this country would go down the tubes quickly, especially the South!!!

            Thank you DP. The right wing in this country are a constant reminder of how they actually believe their own lies.

            Methinks these middle aged creeps spent too much of their wayward youth watching the episode of Seinfeld where Jerry tries to beat a lie detector tests and asks for George Costanza’s advice on how to beat it. George said, “Remember Jerry, It’s not a lie if YOU believe it.”

            This is why these morons always fail. They try to beat their own lies with more lies on top of lies and then get their noses out of joint because only THEY believe their own lies.

            I agree. Dems states are fed up with the constant trough feeding off our state dollars that end up ONLY in GOP states.

            Why must WE pay for their prison industries? Why must WE pay for their Big Oil and Fracking?

            Between CA, NY, NJ, CT and MA, if these states seceded, the Republican states would go right back to what they were after the Civil War…broken and in a state of total havoc.

            You can probably also include Texas in that list. They’ve talked in the past about seceding also. Hopefully, they’ll go back to Mexico who owned that land in the first place!!! And, yes, this country would fail miserably without many of the states you mentioned. Years ago, I read a book entitled “The Late, Great State of California.” It was not a true story, but it was about what would happen if California suffered a major earthquake and fell into the ocean. Apparently, we lead the nation in agriculture, banking; not to mention shipping, and importing/exporting, etc., and many of the major corporations have offices in California. If California disappeared, this country would be in a major economic crisis! It was a GREAT book, and I’ve never forgotten it. It was an OLD book, but if you can find it, you may be interested in reading it because it sure tells the story of how important this state is to the rest of the U.S.!!

            I don’t know, plc, he’s managed to piss of members of his own party, the blacks, the browns, and even the yellows…..why do you think he wouldn’t stop at pissing off California? Unfortunately for him, most of my state of California don’t particular like him, so we don’t actually listen to his BS! You notice that he rarely comes to this state and has no rallies pending here…..ever wonder why? After he totally embarrassed himself at the Phoenix rally last night….he may want to go back to Washington and hide in his office!!

      Your the reason that some call black folk “niggers” I mean really Kushner is a Jew. and President Trump might have saved his daughter for himself.. As I said previously your one of the reasons others look down on dumb ass niggers!
      The good news is Black Lives Matter is the “Black” equivalent” of Nazi / White supremacists. But thankfully you do not not represent the majority of your color group..Any more that White supremacists represent theirs.

        You know as little about BLM as you do about everything else. They don’t claim like the Nazi/ White supremacists that they are the master race, they believe that black are as important and of as much value as anyone else. They as a group support non violence. To bad you don’t know these things.

          As I’ve said probably many times, these posters like Kruse are either paid Russian trolls who are paid to try to cause problems with intelligent people on this site; either that, or he’s just a bot that has no brain or intelligence other than what is “fed” to him.
          No matter what, he’s an out-and-out racist and not worth our time….block him, which is exactly what I did…

      No…. These guys are a lot worse than white trash. White trash is a guy who is caught up in a bad position, perhaps due to factors not totally within his control, but who actively seeks to advance himself, albeit with limited resources… These guys are a willful, unrepentant, disease, a cancer festering in society, with no thread of decency in them. They are ready to destroy everything, but when they get caught… they whine and cry like p*ssies.

    The die is cast as far as Trump and the Alt-Right is concerned. They’ve chosen to be disciples of what is evil and promoters and performers of all that stands for goodness and human decency.

    And now these cowards who need to have guns and ban together before acting out, away from the safety of anonymity of the Internet, find that being malicious out in the open without the cover of secrecy is dealt with stiff resistance.

    And Bannon in the meantime is back at Breitbart to launch attacks, and “put his hands on his ‘weapons’ “, as he puts it. Weapons of “malevolent slurs in the media and ultranationalist crap”, and verbally attacking women and others he disapproves of from a safe distance. Bannon’s a brave man when sheltered behind the doors of Breitbart, just as Trump is only brave when a crowd of his thugs are between him and those who refute Trump’s malice.

Are we supposed to be impressed with their bravery for that??? What the hell have you been smoking??? As for the numbers who voted for Trump…all that means is that el Chapo Guzman and his cronies have stolen your damn minds by supplying you with drugs… Wherever you see “most” of the people headed… that’s the wrong direction… They are sheeple, not people.

        Here is a little fact for you, each one of those people you named had a higher percent of votes to put them in office then Trump who didn’t even get 50% in a low turn out election. None of those people ever had to pay out millions because of fraud or money laundering. You can call them names and make up you cute little lies but you are the one supporting a fraud. What does that say about you?

    If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime. Not exactly correct but close enough for these lost souls. Words and actions will have consequences throughout life, so learning that lesson early might be a good thing.

      After i lost my previous job six months ago, i’ve had luck to find about this superb website that was a life saver… make $85 every hour and get paid at the end of each week …They offer online home-based work. My last month check after working with them for 3 months was $12000… Amazing thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing and reliable internet…

    I find it amusing how they love to show ass in public but are too stupid to realize their employers and others they must deal with in society also see them in their Tiki Torch Light rallies.

    Did they really think any employer would keep radical extremists on their payroll never knowing the minute they’d snap and become a huge liability and risk to other employees?

    What was even funnier was the one white supremacist who was on camera somewhere who did the Ancestry genealogy DNA test and found out he was 8% from Africa.
    So much for racial purity.
    Most of these people need to have some mental purity adjustments. It is called right thinking, what they are espousing is inherently wrong.
    None are to be admired or even given a shred of sympathy to any negativity they are now facing. They asked for it, they are getting what they deserve. And that they do not like what they are getting shows they still don’t get it.

      What they don’t understand is that we’re ALL from Africa…..the cradle of civilization. The DNA of ALL white people has just a smidge of black in it…..it’s where we all began! Unfortunately, these alt right, white supremacists seem to think they just spouted from the earth as white men and that that’s all they’ve EVER been…..surprise!!

    Where have these idiots been for the last 20 years or so??? The government has been targeting *ssholes who want to commit acts of violence… from the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993, to the Olympic Park in Atlanta back in 1996, Timothy McVeigh… These guys don’t connect dots very well. Anyway… provided he doesn’t get the death penalty for his role resulting in the death of the two cops and that young lady, he’ll have his own piece of real estate for at least the next 20 years… a cell in federal prison… Imagine how many people of color he’ll have to live with in there!!! Half of whom don’t speak English… These guys are a bunch of losers.

    Bigoted hatred is always lurking under the surface, waiting for the darkness to return so it may grow again as it feeds on fear and hatred. Nazi evil withers in the sun unless we allow it to metastasize by saying and doing nothing.
