Trump says white nationalism is not a “rising threat,” right before he vetoes a block on the wall that white nationalists want built.

He sees white nationalism rising every morning in the mirror next to his bed.

Courtesy of WaPo:

When asked if white nationalism was a rising threat in the wake of the attacks on mosques in New Zealand that left 49 people dead, President Trump on Friday said: “I don’t really. I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems.” Trump called the incident “a terrible thing” and said he had not seen a manifesto, purportedly from one of the attackers, that named him as an inspiration for white identity ideology. 

Right after Trump said this he vetoed the congressional resolution to block his national emergency declaration at the southern border.

Courtesy of The Guardian:

He called it a “reckless resolution” and said, “Congress’s vote to deny the crisis on the southern border is a vote against reality.”

“It is a tremendous national emergency. It is a tremendous crisis,” Trump said.

Trump claimed there was an “invasion” of migrants storming the US border.

“People hate the word invasion, but that’s what it is. It’s an invasion of drugs and criminals and people, we have no idea who they are,” he said.

Trump said that immigration detention centers were “bursting at the seams” but he was unwilling to release more people.

“When you release them they come into our society and in many cases, they’re stone cold criminals,” he said. “You have killers coming in and murderers coming in.”

And he said that without a hint of irony or self-awareness. 

I guess you cannot expect white nationalists to admit to a rise in white nationalism. 

The Prime Minister of New Zealand where a white nationalist just murdered 49 people was asked if she agreed with Trump. 

I think what she really wanted to say was “Fuck Donald Trump” but was too politically correct to do so.

    Cruz, a Republican, in 2016 described the omission as an inadvertent mistake, calling the Times report a “stunning hit piece.” He pointed out that while he failed to disclose the loans on campaign reports, he did list them on personal financial disclosure forms required by the U.S. Senate.

    Thankfully Jacinda Ardern said assault rifles and other semiautomatic weapons will know be banned in New Zealand. That would never happen in the US. The ammosexuals here would go out and buy more guns.

    “rump cannot abide losing. His ego can’t contain humiliation. He is incapable of shame.
    Steve Bannon, another of Trump’s bottom feeders, predicted that
    “2019 is going to be the most vitriolic year in American politics since the civil war”.
    “It is our job – and the job of all senators and representatives in Congress, regardless of party, and of military leaders – to condemn hatred and violence in all its forms, even when the president of the United States makes excuses for it.””

    While on his rant, Don the Con also claimed that a million or maybe millions were pouring over the border. Does anyone have any control over the insanity that issues forth from his mouth whenever a microphone in near?

    “As we know from recent studies and even FBI statistics in just the last couple of years, that all shows that white nationalism, that right-wing extremism, is on the rise not only here in the United States but around the world.”

    “The Washington Post editorial board on Friday called out President Donald Trump’s response to the mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

    Trump responded to the attack, in which an alleged white supremacist gunman killed at least 49 people, by claiming that he didn’t see white nationalism as a rising threat around the world.

    “That’s the wrong message,” the Post’s board wrote in it’s op-ed. “Instead, he ought to state unambiguously that the New Zealand suspect’s ‘replacement’ ideology is an unacceptable trope in civilized discourse.”

    The board also noted in the piece that Trump “is not to blame for the tragedy, despite his own history of Islamophobic statements and a travel ban that targets predominantly Muslim nations.”

    But it called for him to “go further than he has” by “condemning the alleged killer, whose nativist rhetoric” in his manifesto “overlaps with the president’s own.””<Wp

    Why it matters: The world has a white supremacy problem, radicalized online and fueled by tech platforms that have proved unable to prevent themselves from being used as hosts for first-person shooter videos and manifestos.

    The video’s perspective put viewers in the shooter’s shoes in the manner of a first-person shooter game, but with the sickening awareness that it was a real document of the murder of at least 49 people.

    The New Zealand killer’s media tactics represent a kind of white-supremacist mirror image of the approach ISIS crafted to spread its cause “The platforms… did exactly what they’re designed to do: allow humans to share whatever they want, whenever they want, to as many people as they want.”

    The president is pushing this. The president is their champion. And you know what, to be quite honest,
    he needs the sierra tango foxtrot uniform.

      As Malcolm Nance said on Saturday, the deadly cocktail of Trump’s abhorrent anti-Muslim rhetoric combined with his loud racist dog whistles and winks toward white supremacists is having dangerous consequences, not just in the United States but around the globe.

    The killer’s term was coined in 2012 by a French right-wing author named Renaud Camus. His book, Le Grande Remplacement, quickly made its way across the ocean to join the grim canon of white supremacist literature alongside such dark inspirations as 1978’s The Turner Diaries and 1916’s The Passing of a Great Race. “This kind of [violence by] a small number of individuals or a single individual is a central part of the organizational culture and leadership of folks involved in these kinds of groups, and it has been for a long time,” the American Swastika author said.

    I have come to the conclusion that The Wall represents keeping out people who are not white therefore are terrorists and criminals. This appeals to white supremacy. Between the initial ban and the wall that should keep all of them out.

    Is that a photo of Trump showing everyone how small his ZiZi is? Or the size of his brain?
