Quote :
""We have literally watched as ideas that originate on white supremacist message boards, or like the dark web – the places that are very difficult to get to – move," said Greenblatt. "They literally jump to [Internet message boards like] 4chan and 8chan, which are much more accessible, [then] they jump to web sites like The Daily Caller or Breitbart, and then they jump to Tucker Carlson's talking points or Laura Ingraham's talking points, or other AM radio DJs' talking points. And then you have theoretically mainstream Republican politicians repeating some of this stuff.""

Quote :
"The Republican-controlled Arizona state Senate voted Monday for an ethics investigation into far-right Sen. Wendy Rogers, for her posts on Gab and Telegram strongly implying the white supremacist massacre in Buffalo was a government-coordinated false flag.

Rogers was censured by the same body in March after she spoke at a white nationalist conference, called for her political enemies to be executed, and vowed to “personally destroy” fellow Republicans who turned against her. On Saturday, she posted after the murder of 10 people at a grocery store in a predominantly Black neighborhood: “Fed boy summer has started in Buffalo.” "

I feel like desantis is more responsible for renewing hatred of gays and trans more than trump. Democrats aren’t calling this out enough IMO. Gop is literally passing laws to inspect girls genitals and mostly ineffective comments or silence from democrats.

"Mishael and Josiah Buster, ages 22 and 24, respectively, are affiliated with On Fire Ministries, a religious nonprofit founded a year ago in Spokane, Washington, by former state Rep. Matt Shea, who’s known for his ties to extremist groups. Much of the congregation’s teachings hinge on the Bible’s Book of Revelation, whose apocalyptic visions have inspired far-right paramilitary extremists for decades. Like other Christian nationalist congregations, the church frames culture war issues, such as trans rights, immigration, vaccines or critical race theory, as primordial battles between good and evil. ......"

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/07/11/gop-political-violence-militias-jan-6-democratic-breakdown/

Quote :
"Sargent: It seems as though some GOP and right-wing politicians are hovering in a gray area. They’re endorsing violent attacks on the opposition without facing serious party discipline, fantasizing about settling political differences via paramilitary combat, vastly minimizing the Jan. 6 insurrectionist violence or erasing it with propaganda, and describing Jan. 6 rioters facing prosecution as “political prisoners.”
Has this gray area been replicated by other countries that went on to spiral into worse political violence?


Kleinfeld:One of the things we know about other countries that descend into greater political violence is that violence is preceded by a dehumanization phase. America is well along in that phase: things like misogyny, racial epithets, calling Democrats “groomers” and comparing them to pedophiles.

The next stage is making violence against those dehumanized opponents seem more normal. You’re starting to see GOP candidates posing with rifles — everything from Rep. Thomas Massie’s family Christmas photo to Eric Greitens’s new ads about hunting RINOs.

Sometimes it’s against Republicans who are not part of the antidemocratic faction. Sometimes it’s against Democrats. But either way, dehumanization normalizes the idea that harming those dehumanized opponents is legitimate.
We know from other countries that have descended into really serious political violence that this is a trajectory, and we’re on it. We’re actually pretty far advanced on it."

This scenario possibly doesn't even require a second term for Donald Trump. Just insert any MAGA candidate with the will and sufficient support from the base.

"The names of hundreds of U.S. law enforcement officers, elected officials and military members appear on the leaked membership rolls of a far-right extremist group that's accused of playing a key role in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, according to a report released Wednesday.

The Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism pored over more than 38,000 names on leaked Oath Keepers membership lists and identified more than 370 people it believes currently work in law enforcement agencies — including as police chiefs and sheriffs — and more than 100 people who are currently members of the military.

It also identified more than 80 people who were running for or served in public office as of early August. The membership information was compiled into a database published by the transparency collective Distributed Denial of Secrets.

Ever been to Maine? Outside of the cringe "In this house, we believe propaganda and platitudes" yard signs, it pretty much looks and operates like a white ethnostate.

The Proud Boys showed up in Sanford yesterday to harass a drag brunch at a brewery. One person protesting with them had 1488 tattoo on his hand which is a classic Neo-Nazi symbol. 14 for the "14 words" which are a white supremacist mantra and 88 which is HH for "Heil Hitler". There were also two known racist neoconfederates among them.

No, it's just all white people. Maine is very...English.

Most ethnostates don't work the way you're describing. Japan, Israel, perhaps even China could be considered an ethnostate. It's really any place where one of the explicit goals of the state is to preserve and protect a particular culture/ethnicity/race.

Japan allows non-Japanese people to visit and even live there under some circumstances, but a foreigner will never be Japanese.

The United States isn't and could never be an ethnostate, although it kinda was an English ethnostate until the mid to late 1800s.

I don't know why, but this Paul Pelosi gay lover theory seems more disturbing to me than a lot of other right-wing fever dreams have recently.

I'm not sure if it's the callousness of it while he's still in the ICU or if it's the widespread nature of it, but it feels ominously foreboding.

The new owner and CEO of Twitter amplifying it certainly doesn't help.
