White supremacists endorse Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s black separatism

Published

on

American Renaissance, the self-styled “race realists” that count Richard Spencer among their ranks, on Friday re-tweeted Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan in support.

Farrakhan’s tweet advised black people to “be more convinced that it is time for us to separate and build a nation of our own.”

Retweeting Farrakhan, the white supremacist foundation said his sentiment is an example of “the sort of self-determination we and the broader Alt-Right support.”

“Would you like to discuss this in a public forum?” American Renaissance asked of the controversial Nation of Islam founder.

Shortly after American Renaissance offered their support, Spencer joined in, saying he too is “open to a real dialogue.”

Right-wingers have a history of support for Farrakhan’s message of black separatism — and many share his virulent anti-Semitism as well. Farrakhan has been on Alex Jones’ InfoWars show, where he praised then-candidate Donald Trump’s plans for a “Muslim ban” because it united Muslims around a common enemy. Jones, at the time, called Farrakhan “the second most influential black man in the world.”

Farrakhan is well-known not only for his anti-Semitism, but also for his belief that the white man is the devil.

First, McConnell was forced to change the impeachment hearing rules. After a huge uprising by Americans demanding to be able to watch the impeachment trial during normal human hours, senators told McConnell he'd lost the votes to hold proceedings after midnight.

‘Disease fanboy’: Internet slams NBC conservative for ‘rooting for pandemic’ to distract from Trump impeachment trial

Hugh Hewitt is once again under fire, this time for almost appearing to be glad a deadly SARS-related virus has been diagnosed in a patient in Washington state – saying additional diagnoses will take the focus away from the Senate's historic impeachment trial. Hewitt is a conservative Washington Post columnist, radio host, MSNBC and NBC contributor, and law professor who went from being a "Never-Trumper" to all-in for President Donald Trump.

"People care much more for their health than theater," said Hewitt via Twitter, referring to Trump's impeachment trial. The SARS-related virus, known as the Wuhan coronavirus, is named for an area of China where it was first found. It "has infected more than 300 people and killed six in an outbreak that has struck China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and now the US," CNN reports.

In 1975, New York City was run-down and on the verge of bankruptcy. Twenty-nine-year-old Donald Trump saw an opportunity. He wanted to acquire and redevelop the dilapidated Commodore Hotel in midtown Manhattan next to Grand Central Terminal.

Trump had bragged to the executive controlling the sale that he could use his political connections to get tax breaks for the deal.

The executive was skeptical. But the next day, the executive was invited into Trump’s limousine, which ushered him to City Hall. There, he met with Donald’s father Fred and Mayor Abe Beame, to whom the Trumps had given lavishly.
