White supremacists are making a list to track Jews critical of them

Published

on

The next step of the white supremacist attack on the United States is creating a list of Jewish people.

Mother Jones reported the story Wednesday that any Jews who complain about white nationalists are listed and tracked by a fast-growing group on the app Telegram.

An anonymous activist created a list of 367 Telegram channels that he or she posted on PrivateBin last week, as the app is quickly becoming a welcoming place for those who’ve been shut out of other apps, social media or websites.

The list is mostly crafted with old tweets from Jewish people criticizing everything from white supremacy to misogyny or general bigotry. The profiles then show a tweet where the person described themselves as Jewish. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) was among the first on the list, though the list outlines many others. Some are activists or journalists, while others were regular individuals or social media commentators. About one dozen people are added each day, Mother Jones reported.

Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, explained that the organizer uses a pseudonym that is neo-Nazi in origin. The individual posted a note in September that they were “14 away from the magic number,” which Segal thinks is 1488 subscribers. The number 14 is the number of words in a common white supremacist slogan and 88 is an abbreviation for “Heil Hitler.”

Telegram said that it prides itself on being a free speech zone. When asked for comment, they refused to clarify to Mother Jones if that includes Nazis using their platform to craft a hitlist.

In the past, neo-Nazis created a browser extension that added a triple parentheses or triple brackets to the names of Jewish reporters or famous Jewish individuals. It was their way of having information about the identity of Jews online. Activists fought the extension by adding the bracks to their own names whether they were Jewish or not.

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

MLK was ‘gravely disappointed’ with white moderates — whom he believed were responsible for impeding civil rights

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
