Residents of Cincinnati neighborhood stunned as white nationalist propaganda pops up around town

Published

on

The American Identity Movement is a white nationalist group formerly known as Identity Evropa. The group rebranded to sound more innocuous after the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia rally.

“More than any other white nationalist group operating today, Identity Evropa has attempted to frame their views in ways that appeal to mainstream conservative audiences,” explains the Southern Poverty Law Center. “They downplay the extreme nature of their ideas, like referring to their ideal society as “ethno-pluralistic” rather than segregated.”

And it looks like the group is trying to recruit in Clifton, Ohio. WCPO reports that people in the area have found stickers bearing the group’s logos. A woman told the station about encountering their materials.

“I was heading to the CVS to get some medicine, and I noticed as I was going on the street toward the grocery that there were two stickers on (a pair of newspaper stands), two stickers that said American Identity Movement,” she told the station.

“It was a little surprising to see it there. I’d only lived here about six months or so, but it’s kind of shocking. I usually feel safe walking around this area, but knowing that there was someone around that area that was putting up those stickers really made me feel uncomfortable.”

They call on whites to “Embrace your identity.” WCPO reports that promotional materials for Patriot Front appeared in the nearby Ohio town of Fort Thomas.

“The time of the Republic has passed in America as the system grows too weak to perform its duty. … The damage done to this nation and its people will not be fixed if every issue requires the approval and blessing from the dysfunctional American democratic system,” the group writes in its manifesto. “Democracy has failed in this once great nation.” Like the American Patriot Movement, they use patriotic imagery to promote a white ethnostate that excludes people of color and Jews.

Other members of the community were also alarmed to find the group’s presence in the town.

“It’s unfortunate that people have gotten to a point of hatred on that level,” a man told WCPO of Patriot Front. “I don’t think this has anything to do with what side of the aisle you’re on. It just has to do with hatred of people for no reason and trying to prey on people that don’t think for themselves.”

‘Trump is too stupid to realize he may get to his most feared number on COVID-19 deaths’: Keith Olbermann

Published

on

Host and progressive paragon Keith Olbermann has been issuing "worst person in the world" videos in which he makes a new case each week that President Donald Trump is the worst person and why.

He began by citing that COVID-19 is continuing to surge, with the astounding number of just over a 30 percent increase in the past two weeks. In Texas, hospitalizations are up 35 percent in as many weeks. Even the first lady can't get over her symptoms of the virus

"We could be just a month -- perhaps just days -- away from the exact same nightmarish, healthcare scenes and draconian closures and even lockdowns that snuck up on the proactively stupid, the psychotically self-absorbed, and the criminally negligent murders -- you know, on Donald Trump," he explained.

Federal judge blasts Betsy DeVos for sabotaging student loan relief she previously agreed to

Published

on

On Tuesday, Politico reported that a federal judge in California has voided a settlement between the Department of Education and student loan borrowers, accusing Secretary Betsy DeVos of sabotaging the agreement by denying thousands of claims without legitimate cause.

"The class-action settlement, which was reached earlier this year and received preliminary approval from the court, was meant to force the Education Department to move faster on final decisions for roughly 160,000 of the backlogged requests for loan forgiveness, known as 'borrower defense' claims. Some of the claims have languished at the department for years," reported Michael Stratford.
