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.”

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

Published

on

While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
