Neo-Nazis are creating bizarre dance music that mixes Hitler speeches with club beats

Published

on

We don’t typically think of neo-Nazis as fun-loving individuals, but they apparently aren’t above going out dancing… as long as the music also samples Adolf Hitler.

The Daily Beast has a fascinating report on the Nazi dance music scene that was highlighted recently when a neo-Nazi named Edward Perkowski was arrested along with his brother for hoarding guns, ammo, drugs and bomb-making instructions in their Long Island home.

It seems that Perkowski has been uploading dance music videos to YouTube for years under the name of DJ Ghost of the Reich. Here’s a video that relies on excerpts of a Hitler speech that’s typical of DJ GoR’s work:

These videos, which mix club beats with audio samples of famous Nazi officials, have apparently inspired a host of white supremacist DJs on the web to create their “National Socialist techno.” Among others, The Daily Beast cites the YouTube accounts of DJ Nazi Scum, DJ Adolf and DJ Panzerfaust as disciples of DJ GoR.

Robert Futrell, a professor of sociology at the University of Las Vegas, tells The Daily Beast that these music videos are likely a recruitment tool to make Nazism seem more modern and less threatening than the way people typically think about it.

“All they’re looking for in a strategic sense is for you take one more step,” he explains. “It’s like saying ‘Hey, white people, if you could just understand what we’re about, you’ll be enlightened and want to become one too. Music is a tool to draw in new recruits.”

Trump declares impeachment ‘dead’ — and demands apology — in late night Twitter outburst

Published

on

President Donald Trump lashed out on his favorite social media platform late Thursday evening.

Eight minutes before midnight eastern time, Trump unloaded.

Trump wrote, "Democrats must apologize to USA: Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said that 'United States Ambassador Gordon Sondland did NOT link financial military assistance to a request for Ukraine to open up an investigation into former V.P. Joe Biden & his son, Hunter Biden. Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigation.'”

Trump did not say why he was taking the word of a foreign official over multiple sworn testimonies from members of his own administration.

Pelosi is ‘marrying up the facts and the law’: Ex-prosecutor says ‘bribery’ is a critical indictment of Trump

Published

on

Speaker Nancy Pelosi was masterful in using the word "bribery" to describe President Donald Trump's actions with Ukraine that are at the heart of the impeachment inquiry, according to a former federal prosecutor.

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams interviewed former Assistant U.S. Attorney Berit Berger on Thursday evening's "The Last Word."

Please expand for us on why it is significant and why is it important to label this bribery," Williams said.

"So I think Nancy Pelosi was very specific in calling this bribery for two reasons," Berger replied.

"The first is that -- unlike quid pro quo -- ribery is something that most people understand, especially people who have children," she said, with a chuckle. "We all sort of have a general understanding of that."

Published

Yet another bombshell report has shed new light on President Donald Trump's suspicious Ukraine policies.

"At the same time that Rudy Giuliani and his now-indicted pals were pushing for President Donald Trump to remove Amb. Marie Yovanovitch from her post in Ukraine, Trump administration officials were eyeing potential contenders to take over her job. One of the people in the mix, according to three sources familiar with the discussions, was Rep. Pete Sessions, a former Congressman who called for Yovanovitch’s firing," The Daily Beast reported Thursday night. "He is also a longtime ally of the former New York Mayor, and is believed to have taken millions of dollars from Giuliani’s indicted cronies."
