3. Clear Signs That Trump, The GOP And The Right Wing Media (Such As Fox News & Info-wars) Caters To White Supremacists (& Neo-Nazis) And Seeks To Promote Their Hate
The link between the GOP, Fox News and Nazis really can't be denied. The interesting part is that while the GOP publicly denounced Nazi type movements like the KKK as recompence the GOP took on the KKK's platform and clearly top KKK type leaders know this and see it as necessary to get thier politics into the mainstream (i.e. white supremacist leaders understand the GOP will publicly denounce them and privately help them and this has been going on for decades). And since the KKK, White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis are share the same basic ideology with minor variations on emphasis, they tend to hang together. In other words, meet a big part of the GOP's political activist base, which, basically is just an open secret at this point. Trump, of course, sees this and openly seeks to make peace with the base that the GOP have tried so hard to pretend to avoid while working with to win elections (in other words, the fall of the "GOP establishment" is because GOP politicians sometimes try to stop SOME of the anti American society policies they seek through promote through their "economics"). This post attempts to provide an overview of what's going on on the White-Supremacist/Half-Of-GOP-Base front.
Here is Rachel Maddow providing a historical overview followed by a collection of articles and research outlining the situation;
Maddow: Klan's historic political ambition finds foothold with Trump Rachel Maddow looks back at how the Ku Klux Klan flexed its muscles in national American politics in the 1920s and how those same racist political ambitions are finding accommodation with Donald Trump. Duration: 16:47
Charlottesville killing was an act of domestic terrorism
In December a man shot a weapon inside a pizzeria in Washington because he believed a conspiracy theory that the pizza joint was in fact a secret front for a child sex ring run by senior Democratic Party officials. Luckily, nobody was hurt in that attack.
And jihadist terrorists continue to kill Americans. In January a security guard was killed in Denver by a terrorist who appears to have been motivated by jihadist beliefs.
These terrorist attacks by right-wing, left-wing and black nationalist terrorists remind us that terrorism is not only the preserve of those who are motivated by the ideology of Osama bin Laden and ISIS.

Maddow: Racists saw early opportunity in Trump presidency Rachel Maddow revisits a racist rally that took place shortly after Donald Trump's election victory at which attendees shouted, "Hail Trump!" in celebration of their expectations of the advancement of their racist cause. Duration: 7:24
Article: A Stomach-Turning Percentage of Republicans Agree with Trump's Handling of Charlottesville A new poll indicates the GOP's rank-and-file still have the president's back.
An overwhelming majority of Republicans think Donald Trump’s response to the horrifying events in Charlottesville is right on the money, according to a new CBS poll. The survey found that 67 percent of GOP voters say they approve of Trump’s response to the attacks, while 82 percent of Democrats and 53 percent of Independents say they disapprove. The survey was conducted during a time span stretching from Monday night to Wednesday.
Asked specifically about Trump’s speech Tuesday in which he declared that racist neo-Nazis are as problematic as those who oppose them, most Republicans said they agreed with the president’s statements. Nearly 7 in 10 GOP voters, 68 percent, said that “Trump’s description of who’s to blame” is correct, while only 21 percent disagreed. Eighty-three percent of Democrats and 53 percent of Independents said that Trump was off the mark in suggesting “both sides” are equally culpable in the violence in Virginia this weekend.Note: Trump Admin's Pro-Nazi/KKK/White-Supremacist policies giving free reign to right wing terror (something media likes to avoid anyways, almost like a secret policy or maybe just hidden racism made public accidentally);
Democracy Now: Life After Hate: Trump Admin Stops Funding Former Neo-Nazis Who Now Fight White Supremacy
Heather Heyer is the latest casualty in a number of deaths at the hands of white nationalists. Foreign Policy recently published an FBI and Department of Homeland Security bulletin that concluded white supremacist groups were "responsible for 49 homicides in 26 attacks from 2000 to 2016...more than any other domestic extremist movement." Despite these findings, the Trump administration recently slashed funds to organizations dedicated to fighting right-wing violence. One group, Life After Hate, which works to help white nationalists and neo-Nazis disengage from hate and violent extremism, was set to receive a grant under the DHS’s Countering Violent Extremism program, approved by the Obama administration. When Trump DHS policy adviser Katharine Gorka released the final list of grantees in June, Life After Hate had been eliminated. Gorka is the wife of Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka, who has been linked to a Hungarian far-right, Nazi-allied group. We speak with Christian Picciolini, co-founder of Life After Hate and former neo-Nazi skinhead gang member.
Extracts of articles and research for the events surrounding Charlottesville;
White nationalists cheer Trump for assigning blame to “both sides” for Charlottesville violence
Proof of my previous post that Trump basically follows right wing media such as Fox who are allowed to function unchallenged in modern media like the GOP were treated with healthcare i.e. with silence, thus allowing them maximum chances to succeed at their incendiary rhetoric and society damaging policies;
Trump’s remarks defending neo-Nazis were full of right-wing media talking points
Trump equated neo-Nazis and white supremacists with counter-protesters after violence in Charlottesville
Trump repeatedly parroted right-wing media post-Charlottesville talking points
Trump called counter-protesters “the alt-left” and said they “came charging at the … alt-right"
The term “alt-left” comes from right-wing media and “doesn’t actually have any subscribers”
CNN's Jake Tapper: Trump condemned Barcelona attack immediately but has yet to call Nazi attack terrorismTapper: "One might observe the very different reactions from this president"
JAKE TAPPER (HOST): So, just to be clear, what happened today in the face of a horrific terrorist attack, where people are still finding out that loved ones have been killed or injured, President Trump just told the world to study a story that is not true. A lie. About an American general dipping bullets in pig's blood and killing insurgents. A story that by the way, does nothing to help keep our soldiers and the American people traveling the world safer. At times of crisis, the nation turns to its president for reassurance and for truth and for moral clarity and the lie about General Pershing does not provide any of those. Also, one might observe the very different reactions from this president. Today's Islamic terrorist attack which the president condemned immediately and with this inflammatory untrue story and how President Trump responded to the white supremacist terrorist attack on Saturday. Which is an attack he has yet to unequivocally call terrorism at all.
Why the GOP Sides With the Klan and the Nazis If you can’t win on issues, you win on racism.
Why is it that the president and the vast majority of Republican elected officials are refusing to refer to the white Christian neo-nazis who committed mayhem and murder and, yes, terrorism, as exactly what they are? Why the false equivalence suggesting that antifascists and peace protesters are the same as Nazis and Klan members?
As Holly Yan of CNN summarizes on their website, ISIS has a long history of using vehicles as weapons for terror attacks. London, Stockholm, Nice, Berlin, Jerusalem, and, in North America, St.-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec and Columbus, Ohio.
All these terrorists intentionally used cars or trucks to kill people and inflict maximum terror. All were condemned by Republicans and “conservative” media as “radical Islamic terrorism,” and any number of Republicans, including Trump, milked them for all they were worth.
Yet on August 12, members of the oldest terrorist organization in the United States—the Klan—along with devotees of one of Europe’s most terrible terrorist cults—Nazis—showed up in Charlottesville, Virginia, to reprise the Nazi and Klan traditions of torchlight nighttime parades specifically to create terror. And when asked about it, Trump waffled.
He’ll threaten North Korea with nukes, but won’t even name the terrorists who showed up in Virginia.
And it’s very, very hard to find an elected Republican (who isn’t a presidential wannabe) who will call this what it is: White Christian Racial Terrorism.
The answer is really simple: If you can’t win on issues, you go for what used to be called “wedge issues.”
The Republican Party has basically one goal and one reason for existence right now: to protect and promote the interests of the rich and powerful, be they billionaires or the big corporations that spawn them.
But no Republican will run a TV ad saying, “If elected, I promise to destroy the social safety net and give the money to the billionaires; I promise to increase the levels of pollution and cancer-causing chemicals in our food, air, and water; I promise to block renewable energy and increase your utility bills; I promise to cut the taxes of the fat-cats and record-profitable corporations, while throwing you a bone of a few hundred bucks.”
So what do they do? They create a “coalition.” They do, after all, need voters to put them into power (although it’s getting so tough for them that they have to rely on massive voter suppression among woke communities, and rigged voting machines and tabulators like were used against Governor Don Siegelman).
There are a number of American constituencies that really don’t care how big a tax cuts the billionaires get, whether health care and education are savaged, or how badly our environment is poisoned, because they consider their own issues to be so Far More Important.
Another source of GOP politics AND fake news that functions as the Nazis propaganda networks must have functioned in the 1930's with technology of that age;
Fox News is extremely racist
Fox & Friends is sympathetic to neo-Nazis marching but outraged over sports players kneeling
One of Trump's advisers, till just recently, appears to be a Nazi Top-Dog/Insider;
Report: Breitbart Editor-Turned-Trump Official Is A "Sworn Member" Of "Nazi-Allied" Hungarian Group Sebastian Gorka Has Denied The Report
This one speaks for itself;
Neo-Nazis called on Trump to pardon Joe Arpaio. Now Trump is “seriously considering” doing it.Infowars and fake news purveyors also pushed Trump to pardon the former sheriff
After praising Trump's statement on Charlottesville, a neo-Nazi website celebrates murder of counterprotester Heather HeyerHate website The Daily Stormer says victim was "the definition of uselessness" and that "most people are glad she is dead"
i.e. this is standard in GOP/FoxNews style propaganda to divide society to win elections;

Trump’s “moral authority is compromised”: Republican chorus of criticism grows louder after Charlottesville Top Republican senators from the South have called for "radical change" in the White House
But later they reduced thier hypocrisy by refusing to talk about it (they could reduce it more by admitting thier links to Nais/kkk... the media might then report on it as fact rather than igniring wahats in front of thier eyes and acting nice and negotiating with our modern nazi party
Chris Cuomo: All 52 Senate Republicans refused to discuss Trump's Charlottesville remarks on CNN this morningCuomo: "We contacted all 52 Republican GOP [senators], invited them on the show to get statements" on Trump's Charlottesville comments, but "they didn't want to do it"
Echoing Fox News, Trump defends Charlottesville white supremacists, says they were not all Nazis
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I do think there's blame on both sides. You look at both sides -- I think there's blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it and you don't have any doubt about it either. And if you reported it accurately, you would say.
Van Jones: "An American citizen was assassinated in broad daylight by a Nazi ... This is not a time to talk about both sides" Jones: "People watching this show gave their lives to stop Nazism. Dr. King gave his life to stop the Klan. This is not a time to talk about both sides. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe the day after tomorrow."
On MSNBC, NAACP Legal Defense Fund's Sherrilyn Ifill lists the ways Trump has emboldened white supremacists and Nazis Ifill: "I didn't know growing up in this country that there was another side to Nazis. I didn't know that there were many sides. I thought we were all on the same side in condemnation of Nazis."
Charlottesville Is Just More Evidence America Was Born and Raised on Racism and Violence Racist violence is as American as apple pie.
Remember that Donald Trump froze funds that were supposed to go to groups fighting neo-Nazi violence. Remember that the Department of Justice recently announced that its civil rights division will be focusing its energies not on the precipitous rise in anti-black and anti-Muslim hate crimes that followed Trump’s election, but on “affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants.” Remember that the man who heads the Department of Justice was denied a federal judgeship 30 years ago for being too racist and once told a black lawyer he was totally cool with the Ku Klux Klan “until [he] found out they smoked pot.” Remember that David Duke, a former Imperial Wizard of the Klan who in 1990 won enough votes to become a Louisiana state representative, said “we voted for Donald Trump because he said he’s going to take our country back.” Remember that what happened in Charlottesville was not the unforeseen fallout from the 2016 presidential election, but exactly what Trump promised and what 63 million people voted for.
Remember that 53 percent of white women helped elect Trump because they saw the loss of white supremacy as more of an affront than the prospect of their daughters being grabbed by the pussy. Remember that some of the polo-shirted and khaki-pantsed young neo-Nazis in Charlottesville will go on to become judges and police officers and college deans and CEOs and gatekeepers of all kinds. Remember that many of those same dudes have girlfriends and wives and sisters and aunts and mothers — some of them were there, too — who support and agree with them. Remember that white women have helped uphold white power since this country’s founding, which is why black and Latinx women had to invent their own feminisms.
Remember that in 1955, Emmett Till was beaten to death, his eyes gouged out, a bullet lodged in his brain because he whistled at a white woman, except it turns out even that was a lie. Remember that 60 years later, right before he murdered nine black folks who had welcomed him into their church, Dylann Roof said, “You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go.” Remember that after Roof hunted down those black lives in the only safe space black people have ever had in this country, the police bought him a meal from Burger King. Remember that Eric Garner, Akai Gurley and Walter Scott’s lives were so devalued that as they lay dying, police didn’t even bother to perform CPR. Remember that a jury voted to give the family of a dog shot by cops $1.26 million, about the same amount as the settlement given to the family of Michael Brown.
Remember that within hours of the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision to strike down key parts of the Voting Rights Act, Texas, South Carolina, Virginia, Mississippi and Alabama moved forward with voter ID laws that specifically disenfranchise black and brown folks. Remember that the Voting Rights Act passed in 1965, which means black people have only legally been able to vote in every part of this country for a sliver of the time we’ve been Americans. Remember that people were murdered for trying to vote, sometimes by lynching, events which were celebrated and memorialized in picture postcards. Remember that through voter suppression tactics, millions of black people are still denied voting rights, and remember who benefits from that.
Remember that the showrunners behind "Game of Thrones" are so lacking in imagination that they are making a television series about what America would look like if the South had won the Civil War, as if racism disappeared in 1865, instead of continuing to grow and thrive, and as if we cannot just look at this country in real time and script that show ourselves. Remember America was founded on Native American genocide and black chattel slavery and that Richard Spencer is still growing rich off cotton farms and black labor. Remember that those white guys in Charlottesville who complain they are sick of hearing about slavery were there to protest the removal of a confederate statue, which is kind of funny when you think about the irony of it, though not ha ha.
Remember all this when you hear someone respond to Charlottesville by saying racist violence is “un-American” or that it's “not who we are,” because that is a bald-faced lie. In fact, it's what this country has been about since day one; this is the U.S.A. at its most transparent. And nobody gets to pretend to be shocked anymore.

Clearly we have a home grown Nazi movement that calls itself "conservative" but on comparing "conservatives" to Nazis we find that they are essentially the same in policy but with rhetoric that is somewhat "subdued", as prescribed by a white supremacist, but still Nazism.
BREAKING: Nazism Has Been Repackaged as "Conservatism"
And it operates out in the open!...
Professor of German History: Why Trump's Response to Charlottesville Is Frightening on Historical Levels In 2017, we are frighteningly close to the horrors of 1939.
As a scholar of modern German history, I’ve been working on a study of antisemitism in Germany and the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. What I saw unfold over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia and then at Bedminster, New Jersey gave me the horrible, sinking feeling that my book is going to need a new chapter.
On Saturday, August 12, 2017, thousands of young Americans marched through the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia chanting hate-filled slogans like, “Blood and soil,” and “Jews will not replace us,” and carrying the swastika flag. They clashed with protesters and caused dozens of injuries. A car plowed into a crowd of people protesting the white supremacist demonstration, killing one person and injuring many more.
Later that day, President Donald Trump issued a statement:
We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It has been going on for a long time in our country — not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America.
The “hatred, bigotry and violence” he said, came from “many sides” (a point he apparently felt he needed to stress). He did not mention the fact that one side was carrying swastika flags, the flag of Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist Party, the flag of Nazi Germany. He did not specifically condemn those who carried that flag. They were, according to the president, all equally responsible: those who marched under the Nazi banner, and those who opposed them. All equal. Nazis and anti-Nazis. But how is that possible? How can it be that in 2017, the President of the United States, a country that fought Hitler’s Germany and sacrificed hundreds of thousands of its young men in order to ensure its ultimate defeat, could not or would not bring himself to condemn Americans who marched under the flag of the Third Reich?
What does it mean to march under the swastika flag? What does the swastika flag symbolize? What did it mean to the people who hoisted it in Germany—the people who inspired the Americans who marched this weekend in Charlottesville?
Those who inspired the marchers in Charlottesville marched through the streets of Germany, provoking violence, and singing “when Jewish blood spurts from the knife.”
Those who inspired the marchers destroyed democracy and eliminated all civil liberties in Germany.
Those who inspired the marchers demonized Jewish citizens, physically assaulted them, removed them from all aspects of public life, stripped them of their rights, their property, their very ability to survive in the only country they had ever called home.
Those who inspired the marchers carried out the biggest pogrom in modern German history, destroying 267 synagogues, vandalizing Jewish businesses, attacking Jews in their homes, and killing hundreds, all in a single night in November 1938.
They demonized and physically attacked political opponents, homosexuals, Roma and Sinti, the handicapped, and any others they considered outside the boundaries of the German racial community.
They murdered more than 70,000 men, women, and children—German citizens!—who had been diagnosed with mental and physical disabilities in just two years between 1939 and 1941.
They started the most destructive war in the history of the world, causing the deaths of tens of millions of people, mostly innocent civilians.
