@theintercept @TulsiGabbard @ggreenwald Tulsi Gabbard's congressional career was created by financing from US affiliates of the RSS, VHP, & BJP. The BJP (the ruling party) is the political wing of the RSS, a paramilitary founded in 1925 & modeled after the European fascist movements. VHP is the RSS's religious wing.
@theintercept @TulsiGabbard @ggreenwald 33-year RSS leader Golwalkar (1940-1973) praised Nazi Germany's racial policy & compared Indian Muslims to German Jews. He further called non-Hindus in India "traitors." Modi was 21 in 1971 when he became a full-time worker 4 RSS (while it was still led by Golwalkar).
@theintercept @TulsiGabbard @ggreenwald The RSS is accused of at least 10 major pogroms since 1969. These include the 1969 Gujarat Riots (400+ Muslims killed), which occurred a few months after Golwalkar demanded a Hindu Nation at a three-day rally near the state’s capital, Ahmedabad.....

[MATT SHEA THREAD] So as it turns out, Sheriff Kzenovich wasn't exaggerating yesterday when he told @KHQkev that more evidence would emerge pointing to Rep. Matt Shea's deeply hateful and violent ideology. #RepMattShea
In the latest development, we learn tonight that Rep. Matt Shea's group chat, where he infamously assisted in a plot to violently intimidate his own constituents, was named "White Movement." khq.com/news/exclusive…
For a far-right politician who just this week shared a link to a white nationalist website, the title of the group chat isn't exactly subtle. spokesman.com/stories/2019/a…

This is a #Thread about one of the many trolls who is targeting #Native and #Indigenous @Twitter accounts.

The account #@Blondi65003273 is interacting with #NativeAmericans by #JustAskingQuestions

Nothing obviously provocative.

#NativeTwitter
One of Blondi’s followers is another account that claims to be #Native #Ojibwe
However, one of her first posts demonstrate her to be not your average concerned Wisconsin #Native from the North Woods. She posts a picture of a dismembered body that is supposed to convince voters that we need a stronger immigration policy to deter crime.

Germany’s far-right party. In the last election they gained seats in the German parliment. This is European politics in a country that experienced utter devastation from a minority party with drastic, diversionary ideology. Surprisingly it is happening again in America & Europe.
Economic crisis followed by Nationalism is a pattern that has been repeated often in history. The political solution @TheDemocrats embrace will need to take this into consideration.

#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.

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

When did Greenwald decide Don Jr has "reasonably" argued anything?
Also, two tweets in, Greenwald calls Chelsea Clinton a "princess," shares a pic of her NY apartment, & lies about the incident at NYU that is on video.
He's deliberately inflaming tensions for his own agenda.
1/
Is anyone actually arguing that Chelsea Clinton is NOT a wealthy, political elite? I haven't.
But it is disingenuous to raise her wealth as an issue when the issue was, for the student, CC calling out Anti-Semitism, which was conflated as the reason for #NZMosqueMassacre.
2/
The shooter is a white nationalist. They hate Jews more than anyone (see #Charlottesville--"Jews will not replace us"). Chelsea's husband and children are Jews. Of course she is going to call out anti-Semitism.

But she also called out VP Pence's Islamophobia and praised Omar.

The most expeditious way to defend what some refer to as "#WesternCivilization" and lose is to make it for whites only.

It’s not for white people only.

That’s a demonic lie.

#NewZealandMosqueShooting
White Nationalist like to employ “Western civilization” as a kind of dog-whistle code for white nationalist and their allies. When regular folk hear it, it means one thing. But, when they use it, it conveys a racial thing.

It's how they recruit young, white, naive conservatives.
But, here’s what they won’t tell you: Few know that the term they use "Western civilization,” is an [American] invention - not European!

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about #nationalism and #whitenationalism. They’re sometimes contrasted with #patriotism. I’ve been thinking more about both lately. 1/
Contra Stephen Miller, the nation-state model is just the most recent experiment in organizing and governing human society. As the state became increasingly central to peoples’ lives, national identity became increasingly salient, even if it was largely “imagined.” 2/
Some have distinguished between civic & ethnic definitions of the nation, but both are used to define who is “in” and who is “out.” For the nation to provide the basis for political legitimacy & territorial independence, it needs to differentiate members from non-members. 3/

In a party of ignoble buffoonery, a party where loud/mmoral men are applauded in the light of the day for waving the flags of nationalism — but, in the early, rayless, hours of the night commit treason!

In THIS party of WEAK-and-WOBBLY -CHESTLESS- men —- we have an outlier.
Evil needs friends to go forward; evil isn’t always so “balanced “ or calm! One of the most shameful aspects of some so-called “moderate” Republicanism: It’s ability to soothe independent fears.

It has always been a lifesaver to #WhiteNationalism.
The long history of “The Lily White movement” in both the conservative movement and in the Republican Party is a testament to how moderate Republicans empowwed White Nationalism.

Trump lying about "#WhiteGenocide" in South Africa and saying he will put our Sect of State, @SecPompeo, on "investigating" something that isn't true is concerning.

There have been an estimated 1,544 murders on South African farms since 1994. 208 of the victims were black.
The population of South Africa is 56M.
5M are white--9% of the population.
The remainder are non-white.
Until apartheid ended in 1994, all property was owned by whites--having been expropriated from black and other non-white owners when apartheid was established.
It is unsurprising that Trump knows nothing of the apartheid struggles.
Or that they have been ongoing for decades.
But this tweet of his is incredibly concerning.
Hopefully @SecPompeo will see it that way.

1/ Yes, #EverydayRacism is feeding into a narrative that distorts the truth about #violence, its perpetrators and victims…
2/ On the victim side, since that’s my dissertation work, if the victim is #Black and young, they’re portrayed as having asked for it….
3/ If the victim is #White or older or very young, well then let’s look at Black young men close to them…
