Torch-Wielding White Supremacists chant Nazi Slogans and “Russia is our Friend” at a pro-confederate monument rally

Nazi-Saluting Richard Spencer as well as other conservatives had traveled to Charlottesville, South Carolina, to protest a City Council vote to remove a Confederate monument. They had organized groups of people to participate in a KKK-style protest, where they wielded torches and chanted, “You will not replace us, you will not destroy us”, referencing their opposition to multiculturalism and globalism, the Nazi chant “Blood and Soil”, as well as “Russia is our Friend” in favor the oligarchial way of life. These chants are used, just like their false propaganda and statistics, to of course advance the notion that whites are being persecuted and that whites are experiencing genocide. To advance the notion that America is a white, Christian nation that must preserve its “European Identity” and “traditional values”. What Richard Spencer fails to realize, just like so many on the Radical Right is that this country advanced itself based on multiculturalism, globalism, and social liberalism. Not the racism, xenophobia, and far-right politics, brought to us through fascism and hatred. Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer released a statement on the rally, “This event involving torches at night in Lee Park was either profoundly ignorant or was designed to instill fear in our minority populations in a way that hearkens back to the days of the KKK.” It is important to keep in mind in times such as the Trump Era, that it is dangerous to allow the Right to dictate to us and twist the historical narratives, because it allows them to spread their Un-American hate speech and demonization of other people that can deteriorate democracy.

Radical Right Pushes for Muslim Internment Camps

There have clearly been many conservative politicians and members of the conservative media in the U.S. and Europe calling for “certain measures” to combat Islamic terrorism. The “certain measures” that conservatives are promoting these days are Muslim internment camps. Far-Right Extremist Nigel Farage, who played the most influential role in BREXIT, commented on the Manchester terrorist attack on Fox News. He said there should be “genuine action”, and that “if there is not action, the calls for internment will grow”. Michael Savage, the radical conservative radio host, stated that Ariana Grande having another concert to commemorate the dead victims of the terrorist attack is “not the answer to fighting Islamism”. And later said, “how do we know, having internment camps didn’t help us win the war?”, referring to the internment camps of World War II. Is the right-wing advocating for World War II-style internment camps? Is this one of the mechanisms the Radical Right will use in order to push their racist agenda against all Muslims? It is very clear how ignorant and bigoted Trump supporters are, and yes, even the “White Working Class” Trump supporters who voted for him for “economic reasons”. However, the problem is that they are like blind sheep. They will listen and believe every single thing that Donald Trump were to say and do. If Trump ever brought about the idea of Muslim internment camps to his colleagues or to the public. Which to be honest, would not be so different from his Muslim Ban, this country could take a very dark and dangerous turn. Which is what the Right would want in order to advance their message and agenda, to persecute racial minorities, and to prolong and advance white domination, for the years to come.

Republican Congressman Calls for the Murder of All Muslims

Republican Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins on his personal, verified Facebook page, called “for all of Christendom” to murder Muslims. Referring to Christians hunting and killing all Muslims, he posted, “Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engages to hunt them down. Hunt them, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.” Clay Higgins, like so many in the radical Right view law and geopolitics as a “holy war”, between the West and the East, between Christianity and Islam. The republicans do not care about the recent Islamic terrorist attacks, but instead report on them, and have conversations and discussions with other people regarding the issues, in order to push their unethical Anti-Muslim agenda.

This is not the first time Higgins has made racist and xenophobic comments either. Higgins, like so many other racists and white supremacists joined the police force, where he had later resigned, for being caught calling black youth, “thugs”, “heathens”, and “animals”. According to the ABC affiliate KATC; Higgins delivered a speech in January showing vocal support for Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban. We cannot let the Radical Right dictate to us and try to paint Muslims with a broad brush. It is important for us to keep in mind that most Muslims do no remotely condone the recent terrorists attacks in London, or any terrorist attack for that matter. The intolerant republicans are trying to push their Anti-Muslim agenda that they have been trying to push for decades, and we must not allow them to persecute others, which is what they love to do and which is what they want to invest in.
