‘He’s on probation’: White nationalists admit it’s ‘time to move on’ from the president they once Sieg Heiled

Published

on

Richard Spencer and other white nationalists are urging their followers to “move on” from Donald Trump’s “moment.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center reported that Spencer is far from the only white nationalist who’s publicly turned on Trump, as evidenced by a tweet thread he made last week.

“Trump misfired before he took office—appointing the very people he ran against,” the white nationalist tweeted. “As I played out in 2016, Trump basically had a year and a half to enact lasting immigration reform.”

“Trump didn’t seize this moment,” he added. “He instead enacted Paul Ryan’s agenda. Throughout 2017-18, we got lots of hilarious tweets but, policy-wise, Trump’s presidency differed little from what we could have expected from Jeb or Marco.”

“The Trump moment is over, and it’s time for us to move on,” Spencer concluded.

The SPLC noted that Greg Johnson of the white nationalist website Counter-Currents called the GOP’s midterm losses in 2018 “a near-death experience for the Right, especially White Nationalists.”

“We should know by now that we can’t depend upon Republicans,” Johnson wrote in his moratorium on the midterms. “And Trump himself is at best on probation. We can only depend on ourselves. … Trump is not the last chance for the white race in North America.”

Patrick Casey, the leader of the “white identity” group Identity Evropa who earlier in the month posted photos of his garden tour at the White House, had a similar assessment to Johnson and Spencer.

Although Trump has “racked up some achievements” in foreign and domestic matters, Casey tweeted on November 16, he’s “growing increasingly concerned” about the president far-right activists once considered a “white nationalist president.”

“My work with @IdentityEvropa will continue either way, and my guys know better than to count on Trump saving the day,” the white nationalist leader wrote. “Unless Trump becomes an authoritatian [sic], Caesar-like leader, but that’s clearly wishful thinking.”

Stop praising anti-Trump evangelicals: Their embrace of authoritarianism is a big part of the problem

Published

on

At this critical moment for American democracy our media landscape is doing a poor job in its coverage of conservative white evangelicals. Coverage of this relatively large segment of the population is characterized by, on the one hand, effusive praise for the slightest milquetoast criticism of Donald Trump, and on the other, by a periodic parade of nearly interchangeable unfounded predictions about how evangelical youth are going to change America’s most radically right-wing demographic for the better—any day now. In the words of the great sage Bullwinkle J. Moose, “This time for sure!”

Intel official who briefed lawmakers on latest Russian meddling targeted for ouster by Trump White House: CNN

Published

During a discussion on the war on the intelligence community being waged by the Donald Trump's White House, CNN host Victor Blackwell stated that sources speaking with the network stated that the intel official who briefed lawmakers for both parties on new efforts by Russia to meddle in U.S. elections could be on the way out.

Speaking with contributor Lynn Sweet, Blackwell asked about the so-called "purge" being conducted by the White House.

"It sends the signal once again that President Trump is not a respecter of the United States intelligence services with the bigger issue that a permanent director has not been in that office since last summer when Dan Coates was forced out," Sweet explained. "This is a key position, subject to Senate confirmation and Trump hasn't seen fit to have a permanent director for months now."

Trump’s latest national security adviser is undercutting FBI Director Wray to quash report of new Russian meddling: report

Published

In a scorching column for the Daily Beast, historian David Rothkopf accused Donald Trump's latest national security director, Robert O'Brien, of undercutting the United States intelligence services and uses his comments about recent reports of new Russian election meddling to make the case that he is contradicting FBI Director Christopher Wray to please the president.

According to Rothkopf, "For just over a century, since America arrived as a major force on the global stage, we have feared that should our enemies defeat us, it would be on the battlefield or via a devastating nuclear onslaught. We never could have imagined that an enemy might take another approach altogether: infecting us with a presidential virus who this week gutted our national security leadership structures like a fish."
