Bigots on Parade: The KKK Celebrates Trump

First posted 12/07/2016

America’s corporate media is abuzz with hip Nazi’s and downtrodden alt-Whiteys who reportedly ‘repudiated’ Obama and Democrats by rigging the Electoral College and losing the popular vote by 2.5 million votes.

I thought we might go back a mere 36 years to the 1980’s, when reporters called a bigot a bigot.

This 1980 CBS News video examines the methods the Ku Klux Klan uses
to indoctrinate children.

As I watched this flick I wondered if the children in this video became today’s 50ish Red State Trump voters.

The video suffers some degradation but its worth watching.

Lethal Neglect: The Warsaw Ghetto

Warning: graphic footage.

The Warsaw Ghetto was a Nazi experiment in the use of Lethal Neglect as a
means of execution.

Most of the footage was filmed by the Nazis who sought to document the day-to-day decline in the health of residents walled off from the rest of the community.

The idea of lethal selection as a means of execution was an American idea, first described by Paul Popenoe and Roswell Hill Johnson in the 1918 handbook,  Applied Eugenics.

A quote from an early 201th Century Eugenics advocate, Alexis Carrel, who says that the disabled should be executed.
From a December 2010 article in The New Statesman: When America believed in eugenics.

This Memorial Day it’s important to remember the enemy: the enemy is racism, ignorance, intolerance, religious bigotry, lies, persecution, and murder.

The enemy is fascism, in all of its forms, wherever it emerges.

Already Happening: The Normalization of Trumpism – via TDB

Excellent post, please read.

Just Merveilleux?

“… Only the characteristic bluntness of a child, who proclaimed the emperor’s nudity as he paraded through the streets humiliating himself and his kingdom, threatened to break the spell. But when the boy spoke out he was quickly rebuked by his father, who assured the gasping public that the child was clearly soft in the head. So powerful is the compulsion to normalize the powerful.”

Interesting article- but that’s not the normalisation we need fear most. Yesterday I read a complaint that a reporter was offended by the use of the N word. Let that sink in. It means a reporter does not have the right to be offended by the use of the N word. This N word:

nword

Shocked? Offended? Good, you should be. Decent people who believe in ethics, civil and human rights should be offended. Why do…
