Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, March 17, 2019

After a gunman inspired by the white nationalist ideas that fuel violence and attempted violence in the United States and elsewhere allegedly killed 49 people at mosques in New Zealand Friday, Donald Trump was asked whether he thought white nationalism is a global rising threat. The United States president responded: "I don't really."

You won't get any answer from either of them. Corky will just cut and paste, because he can't formulate an answer in his own words.

Terrorism. Silencing critics of Islam with the Charlie Hebdo treatment. Forcing Western secular societies to accept sharia, religious laws.

We can start with the threat posed by white nationalists causing violence to people praying at their houses of worship.

Synagogue in Pittsburgh
Dylann Roof in South Carolina Church
Christchurch mosque

Seems like a significant threat to me. How about you?

Of course Trump doesn't think white supremacists...err..."nationalists" are a threat, they are his support. Besides, they're just getting "tough"...as in shooting defensive women and children in the back and ramming cars into pedestrians...

White Nationalism is a multifaceted threat. It reveals itself as anarchy in the Oklahoma City bombing and the Las Vegas post Concert massacre. It reveals itself as Fascism when the best interests of criminal banking figures are put above the best interests of the American people. It reveals itself as Racism when some among us target people by skin color. It reveals itself as religious hate and violence against Muslims, it reveals itself as sexism for violence directed at gay or transgender people, it reveals itself with every war we start against people whose names we cannot pronounce.

Most of all it recently revealed itself when millions of Americans voted for a vengeful, ignorant, orange sloth because they thought he would bring them greater prosperity.

It is a threat to our domestic tranquility. It is a direct economic and physical threat to many blacks, gays, liberals... It is a threat to peace on earth.

It's called empathy. You're not showing respect for your fellow human beings if you fail to see the danger of rising white nationalism. Trump is fighting to kill empathy with constant scapegoating and insults because it sustains his political power. Don't fall for it.

the fact of the matter is, "white nationalism" is what we call our manifestation of a world wide problem that's becoming ever more pervasive and virulent.
of course you'll have to expect ever increasing, both in prevalence and violence, incidences of nationalism when you are in the midst of profound economic upheavals.
vast disparities were what brought the nazis and fascists to an intersection with history that allowed them to thrive.
it will get worse before it gets better

50 dead because of a white supremacist in Christchurch and Andrea makes such comments here? We should all strongly object to anyone supporting white supremacists, they are disgusting and we should not tolerate them in our midst.

"50 dead because of a white supremacist in Christchurch and Andrea makes such comments here?"

The Stupid is Strong in that one.

Another victim. Of Ignorance.

AndreaMyCrakedAss and Dulli act like they do not know why White Nationalism is a threat. Isn't that special? Still pretending there aren't any around here so why worry?

Of course they know. They know exactly why white nationalism is a threat. But they Agree with it so to them it is NOT threatening at all.

So they act all ignorant and indignant. What White Nationalism? We dont see no white nationalist around here! Not in America!

So you disagree with the whole concept of white supremacy? Well .. Stop being such Haters! Let them Nazi speak!! Nazi's (White Isis) are People too! Stop being such haters of Nazis ideology just because it is different (and evil)!! Stop being so intolerant of intolerance!!

Remember folks!!

Just a bunch of good people on both sides!

Meh. It's not as if this kind of extremism is a new thing, so it is difficult to say it is rising, unless you're a hyperbolic journalist. Just ignore the most definitely rising genocidal black nationalism behind the South African curtain.

Why do you want us to ignore it?

Are you profiting from it?

Jealous that others are profiting more than you ... so you don't want us to look just yet?

You can tell us.

We won't tell anyone!

You would have thunk (being the most powerful empire in history) we would have grown and matured a little since 1930.

Not so much, huh?

I think Trumplethinskin wants it perceived as a growing threat... that's the reason for flippancy... and the survival biscuit eaters... notorious for fear of everything... including ironically... a loving god... those turkeys gobble it up. Legends in their own mind is what they are.

All we need to do is to stay focused on squishing it... as we are doing.

Seriously... look at the global reaction to the shooting... compared the the tin foil hat machinations... the pigs are out numbered... and that is what bothers him/them.

I sincerely believe if Trumplethinskin died today... most of the world would cheer... and few would call him a martyr.

So, is it a rising threat or is it a threat that has been there for years like all other terrorists, and is just now given a name because Liberals want to use it to ensure white people are hated? The GOP has been doing it for years to get people to hate Muslims, so it only stands to reason Liberals would do the same thing to counteract that so they can be on the same playing field. Because we all know that one side can't allow another side to spread hate and division without one-upping the other.

#32 | Posted by RightisTrite If he dies from an assassination, count on a Civil War. I am not a conservative, I am a libertarian. That doesn't mean I am blind. We are as polarized as we were in 1864. Plenty of hate out there, I wonder when some Antifa goon gets tired of getting his butt whipped by some proud boyz and brings a firearm to his next protest, or maybe there are several of his opponents packing heat. Not all sparks start fires, but it only takes one to do so.
