‘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.”

Swiss holding ‘funeral march’ to mark disappearance of an Alpine glacier

Published

on

Dozens of people will undertake a "funeral march" up a steep Swiss mountainside on Sunday to mark the disappearance of an Alpine glacier amid growing global alarm over climate change.

The Pizol "has lost so much substance that from a scientific perspective it is no longer a glacier," Alessandra Degiacomi, of the Swiss Association for Climate Protection, told AFP.

The organisation which helped organise Sunday's march said around 100 people were due to take part in the event, set to take place as the UN gathers youth activists and world leaders in New York to mull the action needed to curb global warming.

Published

on

Egyptian security forces clashed with hundreds of anti-government protesters in the port city of Suez on Saturday, firing tear gas and live rounds, said several residents who participated in the demonstrations.

A heavy security presence was also maintained in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of Egypt's 2011 revolution, after protests in several cities called for the removal of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Such demonstrations are rare after Egypt effectively banned protests under a law passed following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi.
