Nazis Target College Campuses

White supremacist propaganda on college campuses across the U.S. has triped in 2017, according to new research. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) released a report this week that showed a dramatic surge in reported white supremacist flier distribution between 2016 and 2017. Only 41 incidents were recorded during the fall semester of 2016, a number that sharply rose to 147 in the 2017 fall semester. "While campuses must respect and protect free speech, administrators must also address the need to counter hate groups' messages and show these bigoted beliefs belong in the darkest shadows, not in our bright halls of learning," Greenblatt said in a statement issued alongside the report. "There is a moral obligation to respond clearly and forcefully to constitutionally protected hate speech."

I'd wager the number that weren't hoaxes stayed flat.

Democrats have been overplaying the "Republicans are Nazis" card for decades, so much so that Republicans are dumping money into stories like this knowing that it will backfire on those who latch on to them. OP is probably on the RNC payroll.

"Since taking office January last year, President Donald Trump has been widely criticized for mishandling the rise of white nationalists."

Yet not one complaint from Liberals about the past President mishandling the rise of black nationalists. See, it's not the group that matters. If a group wants to preserve the culture of any race then they should be allowed. It's when the groups become violent or malicious in any way that they are a problem. BLM started off well intentioned and then started jumping in front of traffic and causing disturbances, which is the exact moment they should have been dealt with properly. Instead, the sitting President praised them. The hypocrisy coming from the very top is causing racism to thrive in America and none of the Administrations are doing anything to stop it. All they do is bolster whichever race they belong to thereby increasing their confidence to make more noise and eventually abusing their standing in society.

When I was a teen in the 1980s I used local BBSes, the earliest form of getting online if you couldn't afford CompuServe or a similar service.

The Nazis set up a BBS in Dallas hoping to lure young people into white nationalism without their parents' knowledge. Some things never change.

#15 | POSTED BY QCP AT 2018-02-05 10:44 AM

Well thanks you GOPHERS! A free win!

If the Democrat can't win a debate with a frickin Nazi cult leader then he deserves to loose the seat.

I bet even a caveman could beat him. I see his cult and raise him one.

I was in the Marine Corp Cult. My cult would beat his easily. In fact I think it already did! Literally destroyed it and made its Furhur kill himself in shame. As I recall. Before my time.

Not sure I could manage all that but it would be pretty cool. But I'd sure kick his ass. Nazi's are the easiest thing in the world to disavow. I sure hope he wears his uniform. They are easier to spot in a uniform.

I also hear The Nazi is so much easier to spot if you carve a swastika In their foreheads. That's what I heard.

Semper Fi you Glorius Basturds!

Party leaders have disowned Jones.

"The Illinois Republican Party and our country have no place for Nazis like Arthur Jones," Tim Schneider, chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, told the Sun-Times. "We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office, including the 3rd Congressional District."

Yet they aren't spending even $1000 to put up someone to run against him in the primary. Weird.

#29 | Posted by qcp at 2018-02-05 02:48 PM

They could run just about ANYONE else and save face but they'd rather let a ---- nazi run unopposed instead.

What happened to making sure a ---- nazi doesn't run as your party's nominee? The head of the local party office could "run" and not do any more work than they already do, but they obviously care that this guy will represent the republican party. Of course the republican base doesn't seem to care either.

#33 | Posted by qcp at 2018-02-05 03:11 PM

Obviously don't care.

They'd have to do a little bit of work in the primary, or get out-hustled by a Nazi who will keep his repellent views hidden during the primary all to go up against an opponent in the general who will get 90+% of the votes no matter who is on the GOP side of the ticket.

#36 | Posted by Alexandrite at 2018-02-05 03:25 PM

WTF are you talking about? His views are already out there, Jeff, you just read an article about him being a nazi. Here's all anyone else would have to say: "I'm not a nazi. Vote for me in the primary so a nazi doesn't represent our party." Who cares if that person is then trounced in the general election their job wasn't to win it was to not be a nazi. Is any of that hard to understand?

#37 | Posted by qcp at 2018-02-05 03:37 PM

But it's easier to just let the nazi run. Can't let that ignorant racist base think you actually care who runs or care how disgusting their views are as long as there's that (R) beside their name. One of those racists might send the party some money at some point so you can't alienate them, no sir.

#38 | Posted by qcp at 2018-02-05 03:44 PM

I understand what you are saying. However, the GOP has disowned this guy. It's not like he can claim he has party support.

#39 | Posted by JeffJ at 2018-02-05 03:48 PM

The party can kick him out. The party can make at least a minimum amount of effort to ensure he doesn't end up nominated. But, alas, the party is spineless and will do neither because he is a mirror of who is actually the core of the party. So they, and you, and every Republican owns this. Your party is nominating nazis if for no other reason than it was too hard to not do so, and that is disgusting.

#40 | Posted by qcp at 2018-02-05 03:59 PM

He made it very clear in that press conference that he wasn't talking about the Nazis, or neo-Nazis or white supremacists.


Trump: "And you had people, and I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists.

"OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly."

Reporter: "You were saying the press has treated white nationalists unfairly? (inaudible) understand what you're saying."

Trump: "No, no. There were people in that rally, and I looked the night before. If you look, they were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. I'm sure in that group there were some bad ones. The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people – neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them.

Nonsense. What he made clear was that he was a Lying POS.

Trump: "No, no. There were people in that rally, and I looked the night before. If you look, they were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. I'm sure in that group there were some bad ones. The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people – neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them.

The night before was the Tiki Torch march where they chanted Nazi slogans and then beat the counter protesters (who were mostly students at the University) with their flaming Tikki Torches injuring many students and at least one teacher.

If you were marching on the side of the Nazi or the KKK and were in one of those two groups you were not a very fine person.

There are no good Nazi's. There are no good KKK. They are all scum.

#50 | Posted by donnerboy at 2018-02-06 05:47 PM

I don't believe everyone who disagreed with tearing down monuments were Nazi or KKK supporters. The left wing fixating on the worst elements of the march reminds me of the right wingers who tried to paint everyone in BLM and OWS with the actions of the worst elements that latched on to those protests. Emulating the tactics of Faux News might get applause inside the bubble, but it's clearly not working electorally.

I wonder how many Jews = whether by blood or by religious belief- in total sum worldwide are TIRED of other Jews playing the victim card to get their way and to avoid substantial debate, and, yes, any criticism by the blanket approach of crying racist or nazi at every turn to avoid such said debate and criticism.

There are a million Jewish POV WW2 movies but hardly any of they touch upon WHY Hitler was pissed off with them in the first and what they were doing to Germany at the time to begin with.

?

let me guess, because I am a free thinker your only (and favorite) resort will be to play the Nazi card in... 3... 2... 1...

#54 | Posted by AuntieSocial at 2018-02-06 11:19 PM

"I don't believe everyone who disagreed with tearing down monuments were Nazi or KKK supporters."

I agree with you. Most of them were just conservatives who don't want to admit that the Southern Generals, etc. were actually traitors to the United States or racists who didn't want to allow slaves to go free. Tell you what they weren't, they weren't intelligent people who ever even considered the humiliation and hardships black people faced in the evil south. The didn't consider it because it was sort of inconvenient and it would force them to look at the sins against the black community committed by their own older relatives. Let/s face it, many still can't face what really happened, pretend their own relatives were kind, when, in fact they were as racist as most of the rest. The South was a hell hole of racism, like it or not, it was, probably still is in many places. Deny it, you're just admitting you were part of it. I know, I lived there, I witnessed it. You can't ever make me say it wasn't so, because it was/is.

#55, so I think we agree that it's not only possible but also more constructive to criticize the cultural beliefs of many southerners without lumping them all in with Nazis and white nationalists?

I know doing the latter energizes the left wing base, but it's just as damaging to the country as the race baiting and gas lighting on the other side.
