FBI arrests 3 alleged members of #WhiteSupremacistExtremism group ‘the Base’

washingtonpost.com/national-secur… h/t @File411 #WhiteNationalistTerrorism
The charges, expected to be unsealed today, grew from an investigation of a somewhat new effort among online extremists who refer to themselves as “the Base,” which is the English translation of “al Qaida.”
#WhiteSupremacistExtremism
the Base promotes racist views and seeks to unite different hate groups in preparation for a “race war.” #WhiteNationalistTerrorism

1/ [Thread] On the suggestion of @zerepmot , I will analyse recent replies to @kathleen_belew following her congressional testimony on #WhiteSupremacists. The hypothesis is that Kathleen was trolled by a lot of right-wing and pro-Trump accounts. Let's see what the numbers say...
@zerepmot @kathleen_belew 2/ For some context: @kathleen_belew , a professor at University of Chicago, was one of several people providing information in congressional hearing on the issue of white nationalism in the US. Also present was conservative commentator @RealCandaceO washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
@zerepmot @kathleen_belew @RealCandaceO 3/ So I downloaded a sample of tweets sent by people to @kathleen_belew . The sample includes around 54,000 edges. This will include people replying to Kathleen and @ other people. 54,000 is a lot, especially because around 53,000 of those interactions happened in a short window

#TuckerKlansman says #WhiteSupremacists are so few in number, they could fit in a football stadium.

Guess he didn’t study math.

That makes them millions of times more violent than the 1.8 billion Muslims he always rails against, who commit fewer terrorists attacks in America.
Sure @TuckerCarlson, it’s all a hoax.

Russia didn’t attack us and #WhiteSupremacistTerrorism isn’t real.

We’re just supposed to believe it’s all made up, right?

Let’s put #TuckerKlansman’s words on “Islamic terrorism” along side his claims about #WhiteNationalistTerrorism.
And here we see Donald Trump denouncing terrorism in the strongest terms he knows.

Sorry — he’s talking about terrorism committed by ISIS, not #WhiteNationalists.

He needs a TelePrompTer to talk about #WhiteTerrorism.

💥💥Flags half-mast till 8/8? FBI explains: 8/8 stands for Heil Hitler. Thread+article with many examples of Trump's (+his family&administration) coded messages to #WhiteSupremacists & #neoNazis. Pls RT. #WhiteNationalistTerrorism #WhiteSupremacistInChief
medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
1. On Aug 4, 2019, after 31 killed over the weekend, Trump ordered all flags to be flown at half-mast through Aug 8. Former Assistant Director for Counter Intelligence, FBI, Frank Figgliuzi explained that the US flags would be raised at on 8/8...
2. & that 88 is a coded message “Heil Hitler” recognized by white supremacists and neo-Nazis. He expressed concern about Trump’s choice of speechwriters. However, Trump has a long history of using these coded messages in his speeches. Below are some examples.👇

I want to have an honest discussion about the AR15, AK47’s and #massshootings.

I’ll tell you from the viewpoint of a Marine, with extensive training on these weapons, how they elevate violence, are terrible for selfdefense, and shouldn’t be on our streets.
#ElPaso #Dayton
If we’re talking about personal security, whether in your home, your store, or out on the street— nothing is more effective than a can of bear spray.

The last thing I’d reach for is a long rifle or a handgun.

So the idea of “self defense”
as a reason to own them is ridiculous.
As someone with more weapons training than most Americans, I know how firearms can fail you in a rushed response to a threat.

And anyone who’s on drugs, who might be immune to bear spray, would also take several shots from a firearm— even if they’re well-placed.

Could every @Trump property be an easy target for employment & public accommodation discrimination suits? Will trial lawyers swarm his operations with law suits? He's still the owner and operator. Won't he lose every state liquor license? @IvankaTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump
@Trump @IvankaTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump Plus you have no protection from termination if your employer finds your support of openly racist @POTUS @Trump is bad for business. Should we encourage employers to fire #MAGA people? They have no recourse that I know of. Would it make people disassociate with him and the @GOP
that is now clearly a #WhiteSupremacists hate group? So isn't being a member like openly being a Nazi or KKK in the work place? Could that make all Trump supporters unemployable? What would that do for @GOP turnout in 2020?

#WhiteNationalist killers are and have been the problem.

Trump says they are not, but what was being chanted in ##Charlottesville? "Jews will not replace us."
Trump called those men "very fine people."

Resist the hate.
These two photos embody why #WhiteNationalism is such a threat.

#NewZealandMosqueAttack headline today.
#Charlottesville #WhiteSupremacists
#NZMosqueShooting headline today.
#Charlottesville killing by #WhiteSupremacist.
Hate was the weapon.

Angelic, Backpacker!
Disgusting choice of photo of a white, blond child instead of a mass murdering terrorist.

Whitewashing white supremacy brought us here.
Looks like many more muslims, jews & black folks have to die before hate spewing islamophobes are taken off the pedastal.
For those in denial of #WhitePrivilege...
Either call them all "gunmen" or all "terrorists" @nytimes

Of course the UK press has been paving the way for hate, radicalization and MURDER for years.

Attackers who happen to be Muslim have caused a fraction of the mayhem in comparison with their (mostly Christian) #WhiteSupremacists

The Trump admin is using Central & South American #Immigrants as scapegoats to drum up fear & xenophobia in their base, which is primarily white, and terrified at the idea of white people no longer being the majority in the US. 1/7 #BorderWall
Since his campaign kickoff, Trump had demonized Latino immigrants as violent criminals.

This gives bigots and #whitesupremacists (public & closeted) incentive to vote GOP to MAGA, which is code for "make America white again". 2/7
It's legal to present yourself at a border crossing point to apply for #asylum, so Customs & Border Patrol make it difficult to do so.

#AsylumSeekers are forced to wait for weeks in squalid conditions. Desperation builds. 3/7

.@CAIRNational Hypocrite, Wilfredo Amr Ruiz (@AnalistaInter), Linked to Group Championing White Supremacist David Duke frontpagemag.com/fpm/272169/cai…
Ruiz “founded the chapters of Puerto Rico and Connecticut of The American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA)” and is “currently acting as its legal advisor.” According to AMANA, Ruiz has been the Director of its Puerto Rico chapter.
Ruiz has also been the Executive Director of AMANA’s sister charity, American Muslims for Emergency and Relief (AMER).

Outside of its Islamist existence, AMANA and its President, Sofian Zakkout, are notorious for championing white supremacist leader David Duke.

There is nothing politically intelligent in handing an anti-Semite the large, well-publicized @munkdebate platform. Here’s a research article highlighting Bannon‘s anti-Semitism—yes, his #whitesupremacy is so obvious that it appears in an article title. jstor.org/stable/10.2979…
Let me elaborate some points where you go wildly wrong, @CBCSunday. Michael Enright, you irresponsibly minimize the reach and effect that Bannon has strategically built for his brand of anti-Semitism and #whitesupremacy. 2/
Bannon has constructed an international network of anti-Semites and #whitesupremacists. You are dead wrong when you say, "That's an awful lot of social damage to be caused by the mutterings of a lone, right-wing American gas bag." 3/

In February 2017, the Charlottesville City Council voted to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee from a local park named for him & in June they voted to rename it “Emancipation Park.” nytimes.com/2017/08/13/us/…
On May 13, 2017, #WhiteSupremacist Richard Spencer led a rally to protest the removal of the statue. His protesters held torches near the statue (as seen in photo used later for August #UTR) nytimes.com/2017/08/13/us/…

(1) THREAD on #SecurityClearances & #WhiteSupremacists. @PBS/@ProPublica issued a story today abt #MichaelMiselis — a UCLA PhD student who works for #NorthropGrumman w/security clearance. He participated in Charlottesville as a violent White Supremacist.

pbs.org/wgbh/frontline…
(2) Miselis allegedly "pushed an African-American protester to the ground and began pounding on him," and "fought alongside RAM members, wrestling one protester to the ground and punching others" in Berkeley at a #Trump rally.
(3) RAM is Rise Above Movement, a Southern California group that expresses contempt for Muslims, Jews, and immigrants. A very typical #Trump supporting organization that President has never condemned. Pretty horrible group of Nazis basially. For info, read adl.org/resources/back…

#WhyWeResist (THREAD) Renowned spiritual leader John Neuhas once said:
"Genuine #tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences w/in a bond of #civility & #respect." #CampaignforCivility 1/
Neuhas was not completely right. #Fascists, #WhiteSupremacists, Nazis, bigots, etc. lambast progressives for not tolerating their views. But hateful extremists use #tolerance merely as a tool to gain acceptance & obtain power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 2/
Once fascists & bigots are in power, they vilify all who are different, all who dare to disagree. They only care about one thing: consolidating their power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 3/

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.

So, my dad lives in Naples, FL. He's struggling to get fuel for generators. I called a nearby Marathon to see if they had any. 1/
I called five times before my call went through. I asked if they had gas. Yes, he said. 2/
I asked if I could fill up any gas cans. (This was one of my dad's worries. He had been told that gas stations wouldn't allow it.)

The organizers of events which inspired & led to #charlottesvilleterroristattack are 100% to blame for a number of reasons. 1/6
They are adherents of an evil ideology which argues certain people are inferior because of race, ethnicity or nation of origin. 2/6
When entire movement built on anger & hatred towards people different than you,it justifies & ultimately leads to violence against them 3/6
