We just received another grim warning that the problem of hate is growing in the United States. For the third year in a row, the FBI has reported a jump in hate crimes.

The new data showed that they increased by a staggering 17% in 2017. washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost…
It is no secret that Trump is bringing out the worst in this country.

At every turn he has struggled or refused to condemn instances of hate. That was painfully obvious during #Charlottesville in 2017 and the #PittsburghSynagogue shooting just over two weeks ago.
Congress must act if Trump will not.

That is why I introduced the NO HATE Act in 2016 with @SenBlumenthal. It will give law enforcement additional tools to track and fight hate crimes.

We cannot let this continue.

The "I'm Rich & Afraid of Everything" crowd of far-Right TV pundits is horrified DC rabble protested outside of Tucker Carlson's house tonight + Twitter has now suspended @SmashRacismDC from the platform. Carlson has long history of working with Alt-Right + white nationalists.
In May, it was revealed that the Daily Caller, Tucker's online publication, had published up to 20 articles from Alt-Right neo-Nazi David Hilton on "antifa, George Soros, "identity politics" + "cultural Marxism." One column was titled "Donald Trump Is America’s Julius Caesar."
Then in September, another Alt-Right author who wrote 'No Campus for White Men' was fired by Tucker's Daily Caller, Scott Greer. Greer in his spare time was also writing for Richard Spencer's publication Radix. rightwingwatch.org/post/white-nat…

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4355: Comparing Donald Trump & the Tree of Life Synagogue to Ronald Reagan & the Challenger Disaster • #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #PittsburghSynagogue #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #EQ
1/ There's one crucial expression Donald Trump never once displayed during any of his statements regarding the recent mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.
2/ It's certainly an expression he should have made - for it's indicative of the emotions of sadness, grief - and importantly, the empathy one feels for other peoples' suffering. This is true regardless of whether their suffering is emotional, physical, or both.

Sylvan and Bernice Simon were murdered in the same synagogue they got married at 60 years ago.
They lived and spread more happiness and joy in one day than trump and his nazis can experience in a lifetime. #PittsburghSynagogue #TreeofLifeSynogogue

10/28/2018 thread #PittsburghShooting.

This sounds like actual Neo-Nazi. Referring to the #PittsburghSynagogue shooter:

“This guy just blew out the kneecaps of the movement in order to kill some no name Jews.”

Payoff, motive, timing don’t add up.

2) My working theory is that George Soros bankrolls both sides in order to set them against each other.
3) “Screw your OPTICS, I’m going in” is an odd thing to say. This is how DC bureaucrats talk. It is not how Nazis talk.

Half oktober vertrok een migrantenkaravaan van ca. 7000 mensen - ‘the caravan’ - vanuit Honduras richting de VS. Sindsdien voeden mensen met autoriteit op landelijke nieuwszenders complottheorieën: the caravan wordt door Soros betaald, het zijn geen vluchtelingen maar ‘criminals’
en ‘invaders’. Ze zouden worden gestuurd door de ‘Zionist Occupied Government’ van de VS (de Am. overheid geïnfiltreerd door joden), etc. Het lijkt erop (obv sociale media-gedrag vd verdachte) dat de aanslagpleger op de synagoge door deze complottheorieën werd gemotiveerd.
Zelfs tijdens en na deze (grootste antisemitische) aanslag in de VS van gisteren, gaan de bizarre aantijgingen door. Het neonazistische Stormfront plaatst letterlijk een smoelenboek van joodse mensen in Amerikaanse media (CNN, NYT ed)
