[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 latest development also indicate that Rep. Shea's ideology is not simply a belief in #WhiteSupremacy, but an adherence to #WhiteNationalism, a revolutionary social movement committed to building a Whites-only nation, which holds #Antisemitism as its theoretical core.
The title of the group chat in which Rep. Shea participated was a reference to the White movement, a 20th century confederation of anti-communist forces who fought against the Bolsheviks during the Russian Civil War (1917-1923). #RepMattShea en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_mov…
In its heyday, the White movement which the title of Rep. Shea's group chat references promoted deeply anti-Semitic theories claiming that communism is a Jewish conspiracy. #RepMattShea #Antisemitism #WhiteNationalism en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_Bo…
This "Judeo-Bolshevism" anti-Semitic myth, which holds that communism is a Jewish plot for world domination, inspired pogroms and genocidal campaigns aimed at Jews in places like Hungary, Romania, & Poland. Hitler himself used it to justify the Holocaust. tabletmag.com/jewish-arts-an…
But back to Rep. Shea: As the original reporting on the chat logs makes clear, the participants were well aware of the violent historical nature of the reference to the White movement. theguardian.com/world/2019/apr…
