Gilroy Shooter Who Killed 3 Posted About White Supremacist, Misogynistic, Anti-Semitic Book Popular With Neo-Nazis

Published

on

The 19-year old believed to have slaughtered three people, including a 6-year old boy, at California’s Gilroy Garlic Festival posted about a book popular with white supremacists minutes before opening fire with an assault-style rifle.

Santino William Legan (NCRM will not use his name again if possible) posted to his now-deleted Instagram account a photo of the festival, urging followers to read what The Daily Beast is describing as “a 19th-century, proto-fascist book.”

“The book, which is repeatedly recommended alongside works by Hitler and other fasicsts on forums like 8chan, is full of anti-Semitic, sexist and white supremacist ideology. The book glorifies ‘Aryan’ men, condemns inter-marriage between races and defends violence based on bogus eugenicist tropes.”

The suspected shooter is also believed to have shot to death a 13-year old girl, and a man in his 20’s.

“Why overcrowd towns and pave more open space to make room for hordes of mestizos and Silicon Valley white tw**s?” the suspect wrote in his Instagram post.

CNN explains a “‘mestizo’ is a person of mixed descent, usually white and Hispanic, or white and American Indian.” The book, which NCRM also will not name, was “published in the late 1800s” and “has been described as a white supremacist text that promotes anarchy, vilifies Christianity and calls Jesus the ‘true Prince of Evil.’ The natural order, according to the book, is a world at war in which the strong must vanquish the weak, and white men must rule over those of color.”

NBC News calls the book “a staple among neo-Nazis and white supremacists on extremist sites.”

Trump’s Mental Decline Compared to Reagan’s Hidden Alzheimer’s in Brutal MSNBC Assessment

Published

on

On Saturday morning a deadly serious MSNBC panel took up Donald Trump’s increasingly erratic behavior of late, which led one panelist to sincerely suggest the president needs to be evaluated by mental health officials because she believes the White House is covering for him.

Speaking with host David Gura, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley admitted that she is no doctor, but that there are signs of the president’s decline that reminded her of how Ronald Reagan’s White House hid his Alzheimer’s from the public.

“This is the man last week said he was the second coming, the ‘chosen one,’” Wiley began. “It is very, very difficult to not have a conversation about whether or not he’s competent to serve as president. I say that because there were actually objective measures this week.”

“So there’s the possibility, of course, he is just a president without a platform and, therefore, he’s not going to stick to one position and he’s going to waiver based on whoever is influencing him because he doesn’t stand for anything,” she elaborated. “That’s one narrative. The other possibility is, as we saw with Ronald Reagan, who actually did have Alzheimer’s and it was kept under wraps. I just don’t understand why we not actually ask and have a confrontational conversation about whether or not there’s something more going on here with his health, because there are certain statements and behaviors that simply require some analysis because he is the leader — supposedly the leader of the free world.”

“I just want to say that it’s both those things, I don’t know which one is true,” she cautioned. “I’m not making a statement of fact, but this week was a new chapter in bizarre.”

The DOJ Just Emailed Immigration Judges a White Nationalist Website Blog Post With Anti-Semitic Attacks on Immigration Judges

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s Department of Justice this week emailed all immigration judges and all immigration court employees a link to an anti-Semitic blog post that appears on a nationally-known white nationalist website, VDare, Buzzfeed reports.

The article “’directly attacks sitting immigration judges with racial and ethnically tinged slurs,’  according to a letter sent by an immigration judges union and obtained by BuzzFeed News.”

The National Association of Immigration Judges’ union chief, Ashley Tabaddor, responded to thge DOJ email by sending a letter to the Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).

“The post features links and content that directly attacks sitting immigration judges with racial and ethnically tinged slurs and the label ‘Kritarch.’ The reference to Kritarch in a negative tone is deeply offensive and Anti-Semitic,” wrote Tabaddor. The VDare post includes pictures of judges with the term “kritarch” preceding their names.

Tabaddor said the term kritarchy is a reference to ancient Israel during a time of rule by a system of judges.

“VDare’s use of the term in a pejorative manner casts Jewish history in a negative light as an Anti-Semitic trope of Jews seeking power and control,” she wrote.

Tabaddor is calling for the email to be withdrawn and for an apology to all immigration judges.

“Publication and dissemination of a white supremacist, anti-semitic website throughout the EOIR is antithetical to the goals and ideals of the Department of Justice,” she added.

VDare is linked to the alt-right, white nationalism, and white supremacism, and appears on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of hate groups.

Although Buzzfeed only touches on this in its reporting, just ten days ago PBS’ NewsHour reported the DOJ has bee trying to dismantle the immigration judges’ union:

“The Department of Justice is challenging the right of the country’s 440 immigration judges to be represented by a labor union in a move the judges said was aimed at silencing their criticism.”

Dayton, Ohio: 9 People Dead, 26 Injured in ‘Less Than a Minute’

Americans, many still with broken hearts over the slaughter of 20 people at an El Paso, Texas Walmart, are responding to waking up to news that nine more people were shot to death at a bar in Dayton, Ohio. It is the second mass shooting in less than 24 hours, and the 250th mass shooting this year.

Mayor Nan Whaley at an early morning news conference (photo above) revealed the gunman, who was shot dead, “was able to kill 9 people and injure 26 in less than a minute.”

Multiple reports say the shooter wore body armor and had additional high-capacity magazines. His identity has not yet been released.

“If Dayton Police had not gotten to the shooter in under a minute,” Mayor Whaley said, “hundreds of people in the Oregon District could be dead today.”

Right now every one of the top 10 trending items on Twitter is about Dayton and/or El Paso.

Here’s how some are responding to the early morning news:
