Boston Police Chief: Our Officers Were Hit With Bottles Of Urine

“We basically wanted them separated. I’m sorry to report that we did have some bottles thrown at our officers that did have urine in it. A couple of our officers were hit with that. They were hit with a lot of stuff today,” Evans said at the press conference. “And I’m very proud of the job they did. And it goes to the professionalism of this department.”

Trump condemns ‘anti-police agitators’ as clashes break out after FIFTEEN THOUSAND anti-fascist protesters gather in Boston to completely outnumber a handful of ‘free speech’ activists at rally

The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.

However, opponents of the right-wing took over the event, chanting anti-Nazi slogans and waving signs condemning white nationalism, in order to stand against what they thought could have turned into a platform for racist propaganda.

The Forbidden Faction: Stigmatizing White Identity Politics

…Pathetic Nazi cosplayers were, by all the available evidence, few and far between among those protesting the destruction of monuments commemorating the Confederate Civil War dead. But, though only a minority were worshipers of a failed 20th-century German ideology built by one of history’s greatest losers, I do believe that all were there to do more than protest the destruction of historically significant monuments. They were also protesting to promote the forbidden idea that there’s nothing wrong with white Christian Americans advocating for their group or being proud of their heritage.

Berkeley plans to keep dueling protest groups separate next Sunday

The city does not plan to issue protest permits, but the white nationalists and a group protesting in opposition have agreed to gather in separate locations to avoid conflict and violence, Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern said Friday.

Berkeley is laying the groundwork for a defense against criticism and legal battles; they want conflict between the protest groups, as long as it can be blamed on the Right – and the MSM will take care of that.

Tech companies continue efforts to banish extremist accounts

Apple is giving $1 million apiece to Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. The iPhone maker also will match employee donations to those two groups and other human rights organizations on a two-for-one basis.

Tech companies’ efforts to banish extremist groups and individuals are continuing as a social network popular with extremists disappeared from Google’s Android app store.

Gab had already been unavailable in Apple’s store, though it remains accessible on the web.

That sounds like a threat, or at the very least a call for action. Step 1 accomplished: Identify the enemy, and we can thank Trump for flushing them out.

Trump and The Hidden History Behind Charlottesville

Nazis and Communists fought  many street battles in the late 1920s and early 1930s

The Nazis and White Supremacists as one faction and the Antifa and Black Lives Matter as the other faction are two sides of the same coin. Expressing this is  what has gotten the president in trouble with the politically correct media and their dupes. His point is that too many are are purposefully ignoring the real meaning of the other equally dangerous set of thugs who have caused violence in Portland, Berkeley, Ferguson, Evergreen College and at least half of the problem in Charlottesville. If the Nazis are the spawn of Hitler, then Antifa and BLM are the spawn of Lenin and Stalin. The late twenties and early thirties in the Weimar Republic saw riots and pitched battles between those same factions in most German cities. For whatever reason the media will not talk about the similarity between Charlottesville and Altona (riots in Hamburg that left 19 dead). The only difference between these two sides is that one is national socialism (nazi) and the other is international socialism (communists). That, and the identity groups they are pandering to are the only difference and thats why they vie for similar disaffected losers and why they hate each other so much…

Was Charlottesville a setup?

…the person who put this thing together(UTR) goes by the name of Jason Kessler. Who right up until November 2016, was an avowed leftist, democrat supporter, proud obama supporter, and so on. We’ll use the SLPC’s own database on that. [splcenter.org] And he suddenly established a new organization called “Unity & Security For America” in January of 2017. Now one can’t forget either that he was working for CNN at one point. [cnn.com]

Donald Trump accused of inflaming racial tensions amid violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia

‘I’m not going to make any bones about it. I place a lot of the blame for what you’re seeing in America today right at the doorstep of the White House’.

5:1 odds the mayor is out of office within 72 hours. His police force didn’t become involved last night, which encouraged today’s violence.

A Warning to Right-Wingers in Quebec City

A recent referendum on the establishment of a Muslim cemetery in Quebec City resulted in a win for the “No” vote — that is, the WAYCISTS.

The dhimmi mayor of the city has responded by warning the “right wing” that he is watching them, and will crack down on them hard if they step even an inch out of line.

4chan and Reddit Trolls Are Your New Gods; “Alt-Right Memes Could Do More Damage to Democracy Than Fake News”

4chan and Reddit now have more power than CNN does in shaping national discourse. That’s the real reason the media are losing their minds. And if truth be told, you will frequently learn of breaking events FASTER from 4chan (sometimes days faster) than you will on CNN.

In November, shortly after the election, the New York Times published a profile of the subreddit calling it, “one of the most influential communities within one of the most significant websites on the internet.” The Times reported that according to its moderators, The_Donald was “the largest, best and closest thing to an official campaign subreddit for Donald Trump 2016.” Analysis of its posts showed that it was “home to copious Islamophobia, trolling of liberals and near constant bashing of Hillary Clinton.”

This week saw President Trump cross yet another line in his use of his Twitter account.  Trump tweeted a meme of himself symbolically beating up CNN.  While to some it might have appeared to be a funny way to epitomize Trump’s feud with CNN, to many the meme was aggressive, immature and inflammatory. CNN took the attacks seriously and released a statement stating, “It is a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters.”

There are lots of questions to be asked about the tweet, not the least of which is what it tells us about the judgment of the president and those who work with him.  But the real story here is not about Trump; it’s about the increasing power and presence of alt-right communication on various social media platforms, from Twitter to YouTube to Reddit to Facebook.

What is interesting is the way that rants and memes and other alt-right tirades have major success in shaping public opinion. And while there is a through line between these outbursts and fake news, it is important to point out that the rants are likely far more influential than fake news in shaping political perception.

This means that the real lesson for CNN and other mainstream news outlets is not that the president is immature enough to share a stupid meme attacking the news but rather that their focus on fake news has distracted them from the real story: the rise of emotional, aggressive, inflammatory, bigoted communication on social media and the power these posts have had in shaping the ideas of the Trump-supporting alt-right.

Well beyond the problem of fake news, which at least tried to pose as news, these posts are pure opinion, outburst and excess.  There is nothing about these posts that even remotely compares to news reporting — and that’s why they are popular. At a moment in U.S. history where trust in the news is at a record low, we are seeing the growing power of individuals outside of traditional media circuits who have built a following by suggesting that their voices are more authentic and more accurate than those of the so-called liberal, elitist, majority-silencing news.

The key to the story is the connection between Trump’s tweet and its original source. As Vox reported, the source “was discovered to be a Reddit forum known for Islamophobia, racism, and frequently violent hate speech.” It was originally posted on Reddit’s largest pro-Trump community.

The Reddit user HanAssholeSolo released the original GIF version of the clip used in the president’s tweet, posting it to Reddit’s  r/The_Donald. As Vox reports, the Reddit community known as The_Donald is both a huge and hugely controversial part of Reddit. It gained in popularity over the course of 2016, as Trump’s presidential campaign gained momentum.
