Neo Nazis and the Alt Right

That sign looks ok to me.

A “white lives matter” rally in Tennessee was canceled Saturday afternoon after white nationalists were vastly outnumbered by counterprotesters, leading to confrontations between the two groups.

The canceled white nationalist rally in Mufreesboro was to be the second of the day in Tennesseee.

At the first, in Shelbyville, white nationalists were drowned out by counterprotesters blasting the music of Beyoncé and Bob Marley and the speeches of Martin Luther King Jr.

The 30 or so white nationalists who arrived for the second rally in Murfreesboro were met by about 600 counterprotesters, according to the Tennesseean.

The League of the South, which got the permit for the rally, evidently called it off a little after 3 p.m. local time.

Can I just say I hate the fact that they use the term ‘counterprotester’? There’s no ‘counter’ there. There’s just a white nationalist rally (which, contrary to what they might claim, are actually protesting nothing), and people protesting that rally/the WN message. Fucking bullshit.


#2288

Right, the white nationalists were rallying and not, like, protesting anything. So the protesters protested the ralliers.

Best thing to happen to Shelbyville since we got the lemon tree back.

Nazi’s are bad!

I keep seeing the rally canceled… except it happened. It wasn’t canceled. They went with hate and were met with a bigger voice against that hate, so they went home. It’s more a like retreat.

I once fucked Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS. She was OK.

Just because I happened to read an “in-depth” article on this: there were two linked rallies planned, one in Shelbyville (which happened), and then another that was supposed to happen in the (larger) town of Murfreesboro some 20 miles away after they traveled there in some kind of racist caravan. It was the latter rally that was canceled, mostly because the “White Lives Matter” folks were outnumbered two or three to one in Shelbyville, which they had considered to be friendly ground. I gather they thought the reception in Murfreesboro was going to be stacked much further against them.

Categorically the first thing that occurred to me when I first read about this.

“I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on ‘em. “Give me five bees for a quarter,” you’d say.”

How about the influence of millionaires and billionaires? They seem like a shady bunch too!

Something, something Soros.

I told Stephen Pollard (editor of Jewish Chronicle) his support for Brexit was a mistake and the Brexiters will go for the Jews once they were done with the brown people and I was absolutely right.

This thread… I don’t even have words for these people.

That thread is amazing.

It’s just Russians yelling crazy things at Russians.

“We’ve got some of the smartest people in America who serve in the Congress, and we’ve got some of the dumbest”, Mr Boehner said. “We have some of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet, and some that are Nazis”.

The Ohio Republican and former Speaker of the House talked candidly about his former congressional colleagues in a lengthy article.
[…]
“I do not believe that [Trump] is a racist. I do not believe that he is a white supremacist,” Mr Boehner told POLITICO Magazine. “He has clearly done some things to lead people who never liked him to say those things about him.”

But by labelling unnamed members of Congress “Nazis”, Mr Boehner invoked a spectre that has been haunting American politics this year.

And yet r/The_donald lives on.

Yeah, it’s not even close to being a crackdown, but good riddance to those subreddits.
