A white supremacist who traveled to New York City to kill black men subscribed to numerous neo-Nazi, anti-feminist and far-right conspiracy theory channels on YouTube, according to what appears to be his personal account on the website.
James Harris Jackson stabbed a black man with a sword on the street in Manhattan on Wednesday, March 22, in what he admitted to police was an intentional hate crime. Jackson, who is from Maryland, told police he is a member of a white supremacist hate group.
This election laid bare what has long plagued us. The clash between Trump and Clinton slit open the underbelly of America and a toxic stew has oozed out.
Trump can still win, of course. But his prospects are especially bleak if you believe, as the latest YouGov/CBS News poll tells us, that Clinton is leading in both Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Romney won North Carolina and Trump is this far outperforming the GOP nominee only in Iowa.
The alt-right has long cheered Trump, but his ties to the movement intensified with his latest campaign shake-up. Stephen K. Bannon, who led the right-wing website Breitbart News, is now running Trump’s campaign.
James Edwards celebrated going “mainstream” by appearing at the RNC with “All-Access” media credentials.
When Rep. Steve King suggested that white people have done more for humanity than any other “subgroup,” it wasn’t the first time the Iowa congressman tried to bring white supremacy back into the mainstream of American politics.
The rally recently hit a speedbump after organizers were forced to drop a white nationalist website that had previously been featured in promotional materials as a sponsor.
Last week, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump used a Facebook post to respond to Thursday night’s lethal assault on Dallas police officers during a Black Lives Matter protest. His sober response to the killings was out of character for Trump, who has previously used comparable tragedies as opportunities for self-promotion. But part of the reaction […]
His tweet came after Mic News reported on Sunday that the image attacking Clinton – which included the words: “History made” and, inside the star, “most corrupt candidate ever!” – had been shared on a neo-Nazi web forum called /pol/.
On Saturday, the Martinsburg Journal reported Secret Service to have interviewed Senecal. He told the Journal he thought Secret Service wanted to make sure he “wasn’t going to go there with a rifle.” He told the agency that Washington, D.C. was “too far to drive.”
Bidding in an online auction for the pistol George Zimmerman used to shoot and kill unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012 topped a total of $65 million on Friday, though the amount appeared to be inflated by fake buyers with names such as “Racist McShootFace.”
The Trump campaign surely knows who Johnson is: In February, Trump said he would return a donation Johnson gave the campaign in October, in response to a question from a town hall attendee in New Hampshire. Johnson has drawn wide notice as the public symbol of white nationalist support for the casino mogul.
What “the Jews” are really doing “is exposing their alien, anti-American, anti-American-majority position to all the Republicans and they’re going to push people more into awareness that the neocons are the problem, that these Jewish supremacists who control our country are the real problem and the reason why America is not great.”
This morning, MSNBC’s Morning Joe crew invited director and Hillary Clinton supporter Rob Reiner on for what became a wide-ranging discussion on the media’s role in creating Donald Trump, and the success Trump has had with one formally-marginalized segment of the Republican base. Namely: racists. But when Reiner dared to say that treacherous r-word, the show went […]
“Thank God for Donald J. Trump,” cried National Policy Institute director Richard Spencer into the microphone.
Spencer, 37, has a boyish, straitlaced look about him. With his well-tailored suit and a nicely kempt undercut, he’d meld perfectly into the swarms of youthful think tank employees trotting down Massachusetts Avenue. But NPI is no ordinary Washington think tank.
When Dylann Roof pulled a gun at a Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina, his shots rang through history to the roots of the ideology of white supremacy.
Today, the Charleston massacre has left the Confederate flag standing irrevocably for the most brutal and criminal aspects of Southern heritage – and it is more deeply irreconcilable with American patriotism than ever.
This spring, just 90 miles from the Charleston shooting, a South Carolina Tea Party convention invited a white nationalist leader to speak.
