White House Intern Flashes White Power Sign

A White House intern pictured making a hand gesture linked to the alt-right in a group photograph with President Donald Trump claimed Friday he was simply making the OK sign in emulation of the president. DailyMail.com revealed the photo of Jack Breuer, 23, posing with the president and departing White House interns in November, making a sign which far-right groups have used to symbolize "white power." It is the same sign that white nationalist Richard Spencer gave on the steps of the Trump International Hotel on election night and that right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos posed with in front of the White House.

Fascists have some unique internal circuit that forces them to act out.

A single hand gesture could derail a career. What a complete idiot.

We're going to be told this is just the "OK" sign. That is the whole point of alt-right Nazis doing this particular hand gesture. They want to express solidarity with their racist peeps while being able to tell the rest of the world, "you're stupid it's just the OK sign."

What's stupid is anybody believing that all these alt-right bigots like Richard Spencer and Milo started doing the "OK" sign innocently and it kept happening entirely because people just wanted to signal "OK!"

Yep... that's the story.

#4, that's the truth of it. But I'd add that the main reason they use a hand sign so similar to "OK" is pure cowardice. They are too frightened to use the Bellamy Salute since it leaves them no room to crawfish out of being caught dong something horrible.

Makes you wonder why someone would want to set themselves up like that.

The whole time I was in the hospital I was flashing my Asian Dr a white power sign to let him know I was doing OK and I didn't even know it.

This ------ just blew up his political career in DC over this, hope he thinks it's worth it.

If you dont read about any consequences for this intern, you may assume this was a sanctioned message by Dotardus and his merry band of Nazis.

#14 | Posted by oldwhiskeysour at 2017-12-31 04:24 PM

In Wikipedia the OK hand symbol with curled fingers is a sign of support for Communistic Necrophiliac Pederasty. Never-mind someone changed it back.

This guy has a degree in environmental science. What the heck was he doing working for donald in the first place?

Yaaaa right. Of course you recognize the difference between a "normal" ok sign and a "WP gang" sign. This has been around for a long time. Just all these little Natzi's throwing it like gang bangers now.

#18 | Posted by GalaxiePete at 2017-12-31 06:44 PM

I might add - WHY would he throw an "Ok" sign in that photo? Everyone else is Thumbs up. Or "14 words" depending how they were holding it... Alt Right is attempting to hijack common signs.

Does wearing a red tie make someone a blood?

It depends. Do you mean a cravat, a bowtie, a bolo tie, a western bowtie, or a four-in-hand necktie?

#22 | Posted by madscientist at 2017-12-31 07:46 PM

Uh...i think he is mimicking trumps hand gesture when he freestyles. In the Ok symbol the index and thumb close in a roundedfashion. When trump talks and tries to make a point he makes it look more like holding a joint.clickbait is worse than fake news

You are a Trump supporter so their are 100% odds you are a racist.
You also get all of our political insight from failed comedian Bill Hicks Infowars propaganda trove, so that confirms you are a racist. Good job Dummy, your parents must be real proud.

if this is the strategy for taking back elections you guys are plain geniuses, except for the one that never adds anything to the comments except negative namecalling, angrydad. good luck with winning those elections fella americans.

"don't vote for them - they use secret racist gestures - they will wreck the economy and trigger us" will NOT be a winning platform - please try again to give us something with a morsel of substance to root for the D party again.

And this is why the elitists will never win - talking down to citizens with two dollar words.

Look weasel, There has been plenty of publicity about Trump aids throwing White Power signs since he was installed. Take that tired old innocent shrug and stuff it.

"Oh no! We have no idea what that hand sign means...heh heh..." Banoney and you know it!

If there was any will in the White House to terminate allowing photos of Trumplings throwing "WP"Gang Hand Signs, Kelly would have had a meeting, followed by a memo demanding it stops. When WP Hand Signs continue to be published in the Trump White House, after several offenses, it aint no innocence born accident.

As I said in my post, if this little Nazzi isnt called out and reprimanded by the White House, then we all can infer that the behavior is Trump Approved. If it were not approved, Kelly would simply order "next time any staffer is photographed throwing 'WP' waves to your little Nazzi friends in White House Photos, he will be fired immediately". You know, like any other Presidential Chief of Staff in American history would do if their White House Staff were repeatedly photographed throwing them. You can only pretend 'innocence by ignorance' once.

You wanna play...'these fine people" dont even know what hand signs could signify, and have no idea what you could possibly be talking about"? Nope. Not any more. If it wasnt intentional, all Kelly would have to do, is send a memo saying if it happens again, "You're Fired". If, in defense, you protest that nobody ever explained what hand signs are forbidden in the White House, then your boss will also be immediately fired.

It would never happen again, would it?

This is how a Chief of Staff takes control of what comes out of the White House 'buhleevmee'.

If Kelly doesnt do that, then he wants it to happen.

The Anti-Defamation League has said the okay hand gesture is not a white supremacist symbol. Are you guys really suggesting the ADL supports Trump and sympathizes with white supremacists??

I'm seriously trying to figure out if there's some kind joke going on here that I'm not in on. This is completely surreal.

*shakes head in bemusement*

#30, "two dollar words"? I can't take you any more seriously than the other guy with responses like that.

Triggered is no way to win elections doofii

Playin' dumb is no way to win an election, Weasel.

#37 | Posted by oldwhiskeysour at 2018-01-01 10:54 PM

We all know that is the truth- look what happened in 2016!

Assuming it is your turn and cheating the desired candidate in the primaries is dumb i rekkin.

Your post has nothing to do with Trump Administration people flashing White Power hand signs in Official photos, does it?

You weasels simply toss out BS chaffe airing your unrelated grievances and somehow think you have made a point. Hint, Festivus is over.

Got anything to say about White Power hand signs being acceptable in official Trump
Administration Photos?

If yes, this is the thread for those comments.

If no, start a new thread or STH up.

So now this is your bbs and you want to censor the content- how american.
