This comes to mind every time I think about the blind mentality of hardcore Trump supporters.
This is Christopher Hitchens Debating Tony Blair in 2010 wether religion is good or bad for the world. One of my favorite debates of all time
Replace "religion" with Trump & listen.
Part 2:
Allright, I ll stop with these.
Here is my favorite one:
Hitchens standing up for @stephenfry against Archbishop John Onaiyekan, now cardinal of the Catholic Church, and he was DRUNK.
Over and out.

1/ Who am I?

I'm a #CVE researcher who studies the process of radicalization, social groups, and movements. In short, I look for ways to prevent people like the #CovingtonBoys from swiping even further right & endorsing white nationalism, ethnic separatism, or dom. terrorism.
2/ On Twitter, I identify as a “#ProudBoys Whisperer,” a tongue in cheek reference to the ethnographic fieldwork I do. This work involves many conversations like the one below.

3/ I also look for ways to help men and women innoculate themselves from falling down the #antifeminist/anti-#SJW /conspiratorial rabbit hole.

Let’s meet Joshua Lambert, the Alabama Chapter head of the Proud Boys. THREAD

#doxxallyourboys #doxallyourboys #proudboys #poyb
Neo-fascist street gang the Proud Boys goes through agonizing and dishonest contortions in an effort to downplay their many links to Nazis, racists,homophobes, & anti-semites. Bigotry is a core component of their identity and it can be found in every level of their organization.

#ProudBoys was one of the most powerful movements we had.

Democrats smeared them. Persecuted them. Broke them.

The Establishment applauded. Republicans turned away.
You are not allowed to be a proud man. This is prohibited behavior.

Communists attacked the Proud Boys. The Proud Boys defended themselves. Then govt prosecutors smashed the Proud Boys.
What is it with women feminists and their male dog supporters? Why do they hate it so much when men get together?

...

If a group of women got together to talk about women issues and support each other, I wouldn't hate on them! I'd be happy for them!

#ProudBoys were smeared as Nazis and and even persecuted in the legal system for being a guy's group. (They had Jews and blacks as members).

But when women get together, then it's time to applaud...
Bonobo women dominate bonobo men.
People share equal amounts of DNA with chimps and bonobos. In bonobo societies, women have all the power. They even withhold food from men who must ask permission!

Is the idea of "people patriarchy" just a big fat lie?

What’s most revealing about Gavin McInnis’s “stepping down from the Proud Boys” video is that he’s clearly learned nothing from the the whole affair. #ProudBoys #GavinMcInnis
I cringed hearing Gavin claim that his controversial statements were part of an ongoing comedy routine, and that he really meant it when he acted like a conventional conservative. (My hope is that the exact opposite is closer to the truth.)
Gavin always played a double game: on one hand, he was the ultimate bad boy: bashing feminists and transsexuals with abandon. On the other hand, he was the ultimate good boy: the “pro-gay-Zionist-lover-of-Indian-immigrants-and-guys-with-Black Girlfriends.”

#JohnKinsman of the #ProudBoys was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court late last night on charges of Attempted Gang Assault in the Second Degree (a felony) & various misdemeanor charges.

He is being held in jail on $25,000 bail.
The case was adjourned to this Thursday, October 25, in Part F, Manhattan Criminal Court, for grand jury action.

The prosecutor has until then to present the case to the grand jury and secure an indictment or Kinsman will be released from jail.
In the alternative, they could reduce the top count to a misdemeanor and Kinsman could be held in, but bail would be reduced.

Kinsman's lawyer, Ronald Hart, served notice that his client intended to testify in the grand jury, but this does not necessarily indicate he will.

Gavin McInnes: "I cannot recommend violence enough. It is a really effective way to solve problems."

@nytimes: "Hipster Gavin McInnes is willing to get physical at times."

This is beyond normalizing a self-proclaimed violent thug, but actively promoting him. Fascist apologia.
“I started this gang called the Proud Boys. “We will kill you." That’s Proud Boys in a nutshell.”

“Like Bill the Butcher & the Bowery Boys, we will assassinate you”

Viral video appears to show Gavin McInnes calling for Trump supporters to commit violence rawstory.com/?p=1373053

Why when video shows #ProudBoys stomping on person lying on ground in the fetal position is #NYPD planning only to charge them w/ Riot & Attempted Assault?

Riot is a Misdemeanor & I guarantee my clients would be charged w/ Gang Assault.

buzzfeednews.com/article/maryan… via @marygeorgant
Gang assault in New York, does not mean membership in a "gang," it just requires the participation of three or more people in an assault. This is a classic gang assault situation. Oh and, hey, hate crime charges - there were repeated use of homophobic and racial slurs.
Even when @NYPDONeill & @NYCMayor come under enormous scrutiny and pressure for arresting protesters and not #ProudBoys, & announce they'll take action, it's still smoke & mirrors.

HOLD UP A SECOND

1. I don't know much about the Proud Boys, but I know with certainty Democrats and the media are lying to you about what happened in NYC.

According to them, PB's were "roaming the streets of Manhattan" & attacking innocent passers by

Let's review

#ProudBoys
2. There's a tiny detail the Left is leaving out of the "Proud Boys attack random innocent people" story

2 days ago, Antifa vandalized the Metropolitan Republican Club in NYC and left a menacing note saying the "attack" was "just the beginning" & referenced the Proud Boys leader
3. Antifa's note said they were angry because while "these atrocities persist unabated the Metropolitan Republican Club chose to invite a hipster fascist clown to dance for them." (Fascist Clown = McInnes, Proud Boys leader) So they were mad McInnes would be at the Met GOP Club

Follow along here for my protest coverage of the Patriot Prayer protest in downtown Portland. Someone put up some signage in downtown Portland, mentions the Proud Boys. Stay tuned
Here is the planned route through downtown Portland. Absolutely subject to change. And those fliers are everywhere down here. I wouldn’t be quick to assume that local antifascists put those up. Would absolutely fit the far-right’s MO to hype themselves up in this way
First sign of action at the Patriot Prayer event: dude circling the block with an American flag. “Alpha male” looks to have been drawn onto the back of his shirt.

I guess New York has to turn into another Charlottesville before @BilldeBlasio gets involved. Sword-wielding white supremacists leading gangs of Nazis beating up New Yorkers while screaming homophobic slurs is just small change. Media doesn't care either.
All the reporters typed up "civility" stories over a broken window and graffiti. But brownshirts beating people in the streets of Manhattan? After a GOP event? That's a yawner.
We were thisclose to another Heather Heyer in Manhattan last night. The @splcenter classifies the #ProudBoys as a violent extremist view. Silence from the NYT, Daily News, Post and all the gossipy political reporters. #shame

a bunch of nazi's like the #proudboys showed up with weapons to intimidate a Muslim conference in Houston today, but armed Black militants came to defend our peoples against any potential threats - thank you all for courage and solidarity!
A really important reminder from sister Isra Ibrahim on the #ISNA2018 conference and its organizers. They failure and inability of ISNA to enforce self defense measures themselves. Soft politics and the continued anti-Blackness in representation & praxis : bit.ly/2Py7x7x
Its not a secret that Muslims in the US have been struggling for years with these national organizations and even smaller ones: CAIR, ISNA, MSA, Zaytuna, Ta'leef (to a lesser extent) and many more have been soft af politically and failed in many ways to catch up to the youth

I’m here in Seattle at the rally, and people are open-carrying guns although that’s not unusual. Several dozen militia-types at a Seattle City Hall for this rally and march. Lots of 3 perfected patches.
Cops have been brought in from other cities to assist @SeattlePD with the event. And there’s a big ‘ol bus parked around the corner, and it’s special of course.

The far-Right wants Joey Gibson of #PatriotPrayer to reforge a 'big-tent' fighting force to return their movement to where it was before #Charlottesville. There's only one problem - Gibson surrounds himself with groups that took part in #UniteTheRight. itsgoingdown.org/unite-the-righ…
After the death of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, the far-Right was in a state of disarray. Predictably, many attempted to use conspiracy theories and fabricated lies to explain what had happened as a "setup" to "silence conservatives," or instead, as a "Soros" false-flag.
Leading the pack was Alex Jones + like with Sandy Hook claimed that Charlottesville was false flag. He stated: "I thought Trump’s response was great…we know that Soros has been planning this..and like trying to create provocative events...the whole thing looks staged to me…”

I’m heading to cover this antifa protest against @JoeyRockstone on the one year anniversary of last year’s massive antifa & pro-Trump showdown in Portland.
“Go fuck yourself Andy!” a masked protester yells at me. #Antifa
