#Nerd and online communities are a ripe harvesting ground for neo-Nazism. White supremacist groups have strategies to sell people on their beliefs. This article discusses a few of those tactics.

“Dehumanizing the designated enemy group is the necessary first part of bigotry. Once the recruit believes that some group of people is somehow lesser or beneath them it becomes easier to rationalize the violent end goal actions against them.”
“Jokes are powerful. People are far more likely to actively participate in communities when group interaction is entertaining and humorous. Neo-Nazis will use humor... aware that their messages will be spread and shared in far larger ranges when packaged appealingly as jokes.”

Is there really a “fuller picture” or are y’all just twisting yourselves into knots trying to sugarcoat blatant racism and White rage per usual?
Here’s a novel suggestion: if you don’t want your life ruined by public vilification because you behaved like a fucking racist in public, DON’T behave like a fucking racist in public.
Y’all elected this racist farce, it’s way too fucking late in the game for you to be too ashamed of yourselves to face the inevitable consequences.

Ya'll, this has me so steamed, because so much of the #prolife movement is about #whitesupremacy

...students, some wearing Covington clothing and many wearing “Make America Great Again” hats and sweatshirts, surrounded them, chanting, laughing and jeering...

One student, who was identified in the exchanges and is wearing a red MAGA hat, is seen “staring down” Nathan Philips, a Native American Vietnam veteran and an Omaha elder who hosts a sacred pipe ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

In some shots, the teens appear to be shouting “build that wall, build that wall.”

Ooh baby let’s break some of this down. What affirmative action and diversity & inclusion programs (flawed as some were/are) reveal is the lie of American #meritocracy & #bootstrapism.
Affirmative action & diversity programs have repeatedly sought out women, people of color & increasingly queer & disabled people for opportunities for which they are qualified. These programs consider experiences of oppression an important perspective these folks bring.
Further, when these programs occur in early education settings smart, creative & otherwise talented marginalized kids get to have their interests & skills nurtured in ways their families may not be able to provide either financially or bc of lack of awareness of such programs.

The GDI constituency (not HQ) has been putting their chapters on hiatus as a move to both distance themselves from HQ, and to get HQ to respond with action to repair the damage it has caused. #gdistrike #causeascene 1/
It didn't quite work out as they wanted, given the letter today from Leanne. 2/ #gdistrike
HQ sent another missive, attached to @amlyhamm tweet above, which essentially says "FUCK YOU" to the very vocal constituency, not just chapter leaders, but members, teachers, mentors, and sponsors 3/ #gdistrike

For those who only read the clickbait @Guardian heaadline on Thanksgiving and ran with it, a thread 📌 from @HillaryClinton on her #Immigration stance.

That stance was attacked in 2016 as far too broadly inclusive by both Sanders & Trump. (That is still archived online.)
I have been quite clear over the years that I support open borders, by which I mean blanket asylum and fair entry to the US (and Europe).
As a lifelong Socialist raised by Socialist Civil Rights worker parents, I believe we can afford to give succor to desperate people AND MUST.
I fully understand that people fear #immigration, but every American who is not Indigenous or descended from slaves is immigrant stock. The true fear in the US about immigration is about race. Pretending otherwise is the problem. Addressing American #racism must be a prioritized.

1/ Today, a day before the mid-terms, I'm thinking of my grandmother. As a young boy, one of my most vivid memories was attending my grandmother's funeral, standing between my mother and father.
2/ More people than I had ever seen in church or anywhere else other than a parade attended, white and black, SRO, overflow, watching through windows. I could not believe that so many ppl loved my grandmother as I did.
3/ I don't know how religious my grandmother was, but she had married into a church-founding family for the African Methodist Episcopals. Sundays were special days, but unlike children in similar situations, I was not made to sit in church all day.

.@VoteMarsha ginning up the 'fake outrage' machine again. Last time she did this she violated @Twitter TOS against distributing hacked material. The first time she contributed to the deaths of a police officer and a decorated veteran. [THREAD] #TNSen

dailycaller.com/2018/10/30/goo…
We've actually been writing threads about this for weeks now. In early October @Votemarsha resurrected her "#StopTheBias" hashtag which she shares with such fine upstanding orgs as Alex Jones' Prison Planet.

The gist of her argument is, hacked internal @Google emails reveal unflattering things its engineers believe about @VoteMarsha. (Many other people believe unflattering things about her for good reason, we might add.)

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/

THREAD: After the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #shooting, the #KrogerShooting before that, and the +14 bombs sent by the #MAGABomber, it's crucial that we call #RightWingTerrorism out for what it is, but we also clearly need to talk about #WhiteSupremacy in the 2018 election.
We celebrate the truly #HISTORIC number of #women and #POC running for office in 2018, but we also refuse to ignore the volume & range of explicit and implicit #racist attacks almost every single candidate of color has faced in this election. That's also #WhiteSupremacy in action
Let's be clear: #POC running for elected office have ALWAYS faced hurdles to victory defined by the strength of #StructuralRacism and our country's long-standing culture of #WhiteSupremacy. But 2018 has taken it to a new level.

A white man murdered 2 black elders in a Kentucky #Kroger after attacking a black church. Media reported his Facebook profile disclosed mental illness & shrugged. But that’s not all his profile revealed. #WhiteSupremacy #BlackLivesMatter @PacificStand

@PacificStand "Now we begin the familiar pattern, in which white men who commit racist murders are characterized as mentally ill lone wolves."
@PacificStand I spent just an hour going through the public material on Bush's Facebook profile from the last four years. Here's what I found (a thread as I Went through it):

Two reflections from my research on this recent wave of #WhiteSupremacist #terrorism.

1) We have no cultural framework for non-state violence with which to make sense of what's happening right now.
To be sure, there's a recent wave of important work critiquing state-sponsored violence & its relationship to white supremacy. But, these have yet to penetrate the public imagination.
All I've read on the recent attacks frame them as "racial," "gun violence," or at best, "political." These frameworks are totally inaccurate.

We are witnessing a campaign of white supremacist violence grounded in the president's own campaign rhetoric.

“Women for Trump” aka Footsoldiers of the Patriarchy
These “Women for Trump”:
- Who indoctrinated them?
- Who taught them to submit to men?
- Why are they so brainwashed?
- Should I save them?
For decades, I’ve been asked by white people:
- What is wrong with Muslim women?
- Why do they put up with all that patriarchy and misogyny?
And here I am asking the same about these “Women for Trump” who are the 53% of white American women voters who voted for him.

How Europe Raped Africa

The Berlin conference of 1884 is where European colonising nations basically carved up Africa. Historians refer to it as “the scramble for Africa”.

#Africa #Europe #WhiteSupremacy
The countries represented at the time included Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Denmark, #France, #Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, #Russia, #Spain, Sweden-Norway (unified from 1814-1905), #Turkey, and the United States of #America.
The Conference of 1884–85, also known as the Congo Conference, regulated European colonization and trade in #Africa during the New Imperialism period and coincided with Germany's sudden emergence as an imperial power.

Who’s On First?

When analyzing our predicament today (for me, “we” is both non-Black #postcolonial peoples, Muslims, as well as #AfricanAmericans) I have made the observation that we are so highly manipulated by the dominant culture and its post-colonial psychology
and institutions that it’s akin to Abbot in the classic skit, “Who’s On First?”.
By this I mean that we have been confused and then directed to focus on the puppet show and to pay very little attention to the puppet master. But the insidious nature of this psychology is not simply to *what* we pay attention to but *how*.

On @tagaq's recommendation, I had the chance to watch @Alethea_Aggiuq’s documentary #AngryInuk, It's about how #WhiteSupremacist #vegan lobbyists have decimated Inuit communities with food insecurity. If you care about justice, watch this: nfb.ca/film/angry_inuk
I want to be clear, opposition to the #sealhunt is #WhiteSupremacist and #racist in nature. It is absolutely clear to me that, at best, organizations like @peta ignore their impact on #Inuit. At worst, they're party to an intended programme of starvation.
In the entire course of her documentary, @Alethea_Aggiuq tried meeting with #vegan and #animalrights activists to discuss their impact on #indigenous communities. Every single attempt at communication was met with silence or avoidance.

I lost over 100 followers this week standing up for WOC being attacked by white women.
I'm sorry to have lost them because it means those folks missed the point.
White people have an obligation to POC in America because of the damage #racism inflicts even if we aren't #racist.
1/
The hardest words in any language are "I'm sorry."
Acknowledging our flaws goes against ego.
But it's essential.
I know I am a strong person with strong Socialist politics.
I know I can be intense.
But I am a fiundamentally kind person who doesn't want to hurt people.
2/
At times I know I <have> hurt people--we all have.
And that is my point: If people tell you you have hurt them, listen.
I don't mean casual snark, but hurt.
Listen.
Say you are sorry.
Repentance is under-utilized and under-valued, and that's not just my Catholicism talking.

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/…

#AndrewSullivan has been a contrarian conservative transplant for decades now.
Pro-Bush, pro-Bell Curve, #misogynist to the core.
His latest screed is an embarrassment to @NYMag, which reps some stellar writers. There's so much awful to excerpt here.
1/
nymag.com/daily/intellig…
We're at a racial crossroads in America right now. Some of us white people have tried to write about it with passion and humility. Not #AndrewSullivan, who refers back to the atavism of 1920s xenophobia and racism with an appallingly anti-intellectual lack of self-awareness.
2/
This latest screed is a paean to white male fragility. The bluster and outrage #AndrewSullivan reserves for #SarahJeong is typical of his sneering, superior form of racist baiting with a hefty dollop of misogyny folded in.

It's essential to decry such writing when we see it.

Dear white sisters & brothers in #TORONTO,

I’m asking you a question that may make you uncomfortable, that may make you recoil, that may make you hide, &/or that may make you retaliate in various ways.

You are the majority of people who vote.
Your vote has impacted our lives.
Yes white sisters & brothers, your. Your vote has impacted our lives.

#TORONTO #TOpoli #ElectionTO

...
This thread is not about making you feel guilty. Know that I write this with love to you because I love you & want better for our City. In order for our City to thrive we must work towards certain goals together.

We must ensure #CommunityWellness!

This @WaffleHouse business giving me anxiety. So much that I had to write about it. Because #Wafflehouse demonstrates in the most perfect way how #whitesupremacy is the decider of whether black folks will be feted or humiliated. And they've done both in 24 hours. Perfectly.
You have a tale of two @WaffleHouse s. In one a black man is celebrated for taking out an armed shooter (brought to you by #whitesupremacy). Everyone cheers for the black man who cleans up the horrific mess brought to you by entitlement and shitty gun laws.
At the root of it all, America's gun laws are the way they are because #whitesupremacy feels it must arm itself for surely the people of color it has mistreated will one day rise up and treat whiteness with the same disdain #whitesupremacy has held for blackness.
