White Supremacists Thank trump For His Kind Words to Them

“When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good. God bless him,” wrote a Nazi website’s founder.

President Donald Trump is coming under fire from both sides of the aisle for his unwillingness to explicitly condemn the role of white supremacists at the deadly protests in Virginia on Saturday. “We must call evil by its name,” Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) urged Trump, who had earlier told reporters that “many sides” were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville.

“It is not too much to ask to have a president who explicitly condemns Nazis,” said Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) in a pointed Saturday tweet.

But at least one group appears happy with Trump’s muted comments: White supremacists themselves.

Reacting to Trump’s words on Saturday, the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer praised the president’s comments as “good.”

“He didn’t attack us. He just said the nation should come together. Nothing specific against us,” wrote Andrew Anglin, the website’s founder.

“No condemnation at all,” Anglin continued. “When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good. God bless him.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center describes The Daily Stormer as a site dedicated to “spreading anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism.” “Jewish Problem” and “Race War” are among the editorial sections that can be found on the site.

Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke said on Saturday that the white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville ― called “Unite the Right” ― was in line with “promises” made by Trump.

“We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump,” said Duke, speaking at the rally. “That’s what we believed in, that’s why we voted for Donald Trump. Because he said he’s going to take our country back. That’s what we gotta do.”

Hundreds of neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and other white supremacists descended upon Charlottesville this weekend to protest the proposed removal of a Confederate statue from a city park. Many counter-demonstrators also took to the streets, and heated clashes were reported between the two groups.

Three people died in connection with the violence on Saturday: A 32-year-old woman who was struck by a car that plowed into a group of counter-protesters, and two Virginia state troopers who, while responding to the riots, died in a helicopter crash.

The dog that looks the most like a teddy bear AND the cutest dog

"My ancestors were ferocious killing machines.
My great great great Grandfather could take down the largest prey and snap its neck in seconds.

Now look at me.
They put a baby's clothes on me and tell their friends I'm a teddy bear."

Linda Sarsour’s Corrupt influence on the progressive community

The problem is not the hijab.
The problem is Islamic Ideology and Islamists who cry death to Israel, curse the West, subjugate their women under Sharia and make life hell for anyone who deviates from the most sexist, racist, homophobic, anti-anyone not Muslim or the right kind of Muslim.
We need to listen to the words of Islamic leaders running the Muslim world; “There is no Islam that is not Political.”
This brand of Islam has nothing to do with spirituality, freedom or democracy, and everything to do with power, control, and brutal oppression. This is the brand of Islam controlling Arab nations today that too many of us wish to willfully ignore.
Linda Sarsour’s influence on the progressive community is useful in understanding this trend of willful ignorance in liberal communities, including the Jewish world today.
Sarsour’s hijab is not the problem. The hijab fittings that infiltrated the Women’s March she co-organized in D.C was a cover-up of much more than the head.
Orthodox Jewish women cover their heads and many are feminists. The same goes for the hijab in America when it is a choice. It is a problem when it is not a choice.
Given that Sarsour does not speak up against the blatant oppression of women in Islamic countries, her hijab fittings are more about support for Islamic ideology than acceptance of Muslims and their religious practices in America.
As her Muslim Brotherhood Hamas driven ideology was exposed on social media, she manipulated a fundraiser for vandalized Jewish graves in St. Louis, Missouri.
A group of Jewish educators and organizations were moved to lead a campaign of support for her. Instead of doing their homework.
Are we that gullible, that needy, that afraid to lose progressive credentials? That reputable Jewish journals like The Forward would go so far as to tell us “not to listen to her words?”
Where is this marriage of mostly well-meaning progressives and Israel hating, women oppressing, gay murdering, Hamas loving systems being made? Since when is waking up to Islamic oppression a “phobia” and an affront to intersectionality?
Have these Jewish educators supporting Sarsour confronted her crude attacks against Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a woman who suffered genital mutilation and lost so much, a woman who risks her life as she continues to try to bring to light the dark night forced upon women in countries operating under Sharia today? Why isn’t Hirsi Ali’s documentary The Honor Diaries more widely distributed than fraudulent claims of feminism?
That Sarsour, in solidarity with Rasmeah Odeh, a convicted terrorist who murdered Jews in a Jerusalem supermarket, are keynote speakers at the annual “A Jewish Voice for Peace” is no surprise. Progressive Jewish educators need to connect the dots instead of telling us to “ignore her words.”
The brilliantly articulate fast talking Sarsour, “friend” of the LGBTQ community, does not speak out against the torture and murder of gays in Islamic countries or the “honor killings” of women.
Her silence makes her an apologist for crimes against women, gays, lesbians, transgender, Jews, Christians, and all religious minorities under Islam. Her silence matters.
Her Brooklyn-ese “There is nothing creepier than Zionism” echoes the vow from Islamic leaders all over the Arab world to destroy Israel.  Her words matter.
That she was honored by Obama as a “human rights activist” is cringe-worthy. This is a woman whose tweets (Hirsi Ali “doesn’t’ deserve to have a vagina”), have a lot in common with the late-night tweeting of a certain president of the United States she “resists.”
How about resisting Islamic ideology, the institutionalized oppression of women, minority groups, and ethnic cleansing?
Over two thousand five hundred years of Jewish communities in what became Arab lands has been brutally brought to an end by Islamists.Churches filled with worshippers are torched by Islamists in Egypt. Coptic Christians, too many of them to expel as the Jews were, live in fear in Egypt.Women are stoned in public for disobeying men in Afghanistan.Women dressed “immodestly” in the Iran of the mullahs are dragged off the streets and beaten. Gay men and lesbians are subjected to torture and gruesome deaths.Christian girls are kidnapped, raped, and traded, by Islamic militants in Africa.The Yazidi woman and girls…
The horrors cannot be contained in this post.
Willful ignorance is a big problem.
