Horrific attack on Muslims in New Zealand is a reminder that demagoguery kills. Far-right pols like Trump who spew hate & fascist language should be rebuked until they stop. And their propagandists shouldn’t be given a platform to gaslight, downplay or normalize the danger. @CNN
@CNN @AC360 @ChrisCuomo @ErinBurnett @donlemon 🔥"like White ISIS"—YES @WajahatAli. White nationalism is a terrorist ideology used to kill in Christchurch, Charleston, Charlottesville, Pittsburgh… PLS stop giving a platform to xenophobic "border invasion" #propaganda against immigrants, Muslims, refugees—disguised as debate.
@CNN @AC360 @ChrisCuomo @ErinBurnett @donlemon @WajahatAli Just b/c Trump is president doesn't mean media must legitimize his propaganda. Y'day a propagandist per hour appeared on CNN—downplaying his fascist threats of violence. To CNN's credit, the hosts pushed back. But engaging in debate elevates & mainstreams illegitimate propaganda.
@CNN @AC360 @ChrisCuomo @ErinBurnett @donlemon @WajahatAli The challenge for media: Cover a POTUS promoting far-right extremism W/O fueling his extremism. MAGA nationalism is white supremacy terrorism cloaked in language of free speech, both sides, immigration reform. Propagandists mask the truth, spread propaganda that fuels hate & fear
Far-right extremists committed 73.3% of terrorism deaths since 2009. Yet today Trump dismissed the threat of white nationalism. While also using the very extremist anti-immigrant xenophobic propaganda language ("invasion" "invaders") used by the New Zealand far-right terrorist.
🚨Terrorism expert: Trump has mainstreamed extremist themes seen on neo-Nazi sites 10-15 yrs ago. Extremists see in his language & propaganda—border wall, Muslim ban, deportation of immigrants—narratives once confined to the dark recesses of the internet.
DHS domestic terrorism expert Daryl Johnson (on @CNNTonight w/ @donlemon last night) warned of right-wing violence by white nationalist extremists back in 2009. Republicans objected & shut his report down. He was right, he wrote after Charlottesville. washingtonpost.com/news/postevery…
It isn't complicated. Trump Keeps Encouraging Violence & White Nationalism w/ extremist language & tropes. Lo & behold, white-nationalist violence is on the rise. You have to work pretty hard to persuade yourself that’s just a big coincidence, @DLeonhardt
New @RVAwonk on the hate business: Trump donor Robert Mercer fuels the extremist anti-Muslim #propaganda industry responsible for creating & spreading the same far-right #Islamophobic rhetoric found in #NewZealand terrorist's white nationalist manifesto. bylinetimes.com/2019/03/18/rob…
