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.

With Trump appearing in New Mexico on Monday night, Politico reports the president has his work cut out for him in a state that saw the GOP lose the governorship and one House seat in 2018.

"The Land of Enchantment has voted for a Republican presidential candidate only once since 1992. With a considerable nonwhite voter population and all-Democratic congressional delegation, it’s not exactly fertile ground for a surprise GOP victory," the report notes before adding that Parscale feels they can make inroads this go-around.

Oil prices soar more than 10% after Saudi plant attacks

Published

on

Oil prices surged more than 10 percent Monday after attacks on two Saudi Arabian plants that slashed output in the world's top producer by half, with Donald Trump blaming Iran and raising the possibility of a military strike on the country.

West Texas Intermediate jumped 10.68 percent to $60.71 and Brent climbed 11.77 percent to $67.31 in early Asia trading following the blasts at facilities run by state-owned giant Aramco.

The attack by Tehran-backed Huthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is bogged down in a five-year war, effectively shut down six percent of the global oil supply.
