“Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!”
That’s how Richard B. Spencer saluted more than 200 attendees on Saturday, gathered at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C., for the annual conference of the National Policy Institute, which describes itself as “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States, and around the world.”
Spencer has popularized the term “alt-right” to describe the movement he leads. Spencer has said his dream is “a new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans,” and has called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing.”
For most of the day, a parade of speakers discussed their ideology in relatively anodyne terms, putting a presentable face on their agenda. But after dinner, when most journalists had already departed, Spencer rose and delivered a speech to his followers dripping with anti-Semitism, and leaving no doubt as to what he actually seeks. He referred to the mainstream media as “Lügenpresse,” a term he said he was borrowing from “the original German”; the Nazis used the word to attack their critics in the press.
“America was until this past generation a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity,” Spencer said. “It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.”
You know I saw a few Trump surrogates making the point that these people do not represent the majority of Trump supporters by any means, but I don't think that's true at all.
After all Donald Trump came to national attention by calling into question the first black President's legitimacy to hold that office.
There are suggestions that his father was a member of the KKK.
Ex-wife Ivana Trump claimed that Trump slept with a collection of Hitler speeches by his bed.
And he has risen to power by targeting certain groups, in this case Muslims and Mexicans, and used hate to attract followers who are almost exclusively white and believe they lost this country to the immigrants and brown people.
So is Donald Trump a Nazi?
For all intents and purposes, yeah I think he probably is.
After all he is clearly the leader of the "Alt Right" and they have now revealed their true selves.
Welcome to Germany in the 1930's.
