In I Can't Believe We're Still Talking About Fucking Nazis, Nazis- I hate these guys by John Cole

This part of the Vulture Billy Joel interview was pretty fire: Wearing the Star of David wasn’t about politics. To me, what happened in Charlottesville was like war. When Trump said there were good people on both sides — there are no good Nazis. There are no good Ku Klux Klan people. Don’t equivocate that shit. I think about my old man:Most of his family was murdered in Auschwitz.The story of the Joel family’s experience with Nazi Germany is told in full in the 2001 German documentary The Joel Files. …

Stabbed in the Back – Kudlow and Navarro

In All we want is life beyond the thunderdome, Are these Nazis Walter?, Assholes, I Can't Believe We're Still Talking About Fucking Nazis, Open Thread by Cheryl Rofer

Both Larry Kudlow and Peter Navarro said something on this morning’s news programs that bothered me a lot. My tweet thread is going viral, so I thought I’d share it. Looks like not everyone knows the history. This is one more example of a reporter badly missing the point. "Oh dear, Kudlow is upset and we can't figure it out." No. That's not the news here, @shearm 1/ https://t.co/0lf9BaY8Z8 — Cheryl Rofer (@CherylRofer) June 10, 2018 This is the tweet I quoted. Yes, a New York Times reporter. The thing …

TL;DR — when it comes to literal Nazis, always root for injuries. First, there was this tragicomical story in the Daily Beast… Prominent neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer might have to reveal its funding, thanks to a new court filing in a lawsuit against the website’s founder, Andrew Anglin. Anglin is currently on the run from two lawsuits. One of those lawsuits, by radio host and Daily Beast contributor Dean Obeidallah, accuses Anglin of defamation after The Daily Stormer accused Obeidallah of orchestrating a bombing at a 2017 Ariana Grande …

In Go Fuck Yourself, I Can't Believe We're Still Talking About Fucking Nazis, Looks Like I Picked the Wrong Week to Stop Sniffing Glue, Nazis- I hate these guys, Nobody could have predicted, Not Normal, Republican Crime Syndicate - aka the Bush Admin. by Tom Levenson

So, this happened, as reported in The Washington Post: Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday. As Josh posted at TPM, highlighting a blunt and unequivocal report on this over at CNN, such a pure distillation of racism is too blatant to be ignored, even by the most circumspect MSM venues. …

The Trump Permission Slip, Brookline High School Edition

In All we want is life beyond the thunderdome, Assholes, Fucked-up-edness, Good News For Conservatives, I Can't Believe We're Still Talking About Fucking Nazis, Post-racial America, The Wingularity, Vote Like Your Country Depends On It by Tom Levenson

Of the many worst things about Trump’s election and his impact on American society is the way his vile racism — and the acquiescence-to-emulation of his fellow Republicans — has give the worst in our society (see: deplorables) license to display their own racist shitstains in public. That came home with a vengeance for me over the last couple of days, starting with an email from the local high school principal and the school superintendent.  Three young men, two recent Brookline High graduates, one current student, had posted to the …

Nazis are just like me except for the part where I don't believe killing everyone who doesn't think, look or act like me will solve my economic situation. — Ragnarok Lobster (@eclecticbrotha) November 26, 2017 For all of the alt-right's disdain for "normies," many in the movement want their extremist views to be normalized https://t.co/Uyw0z05bts — NYT National News (@NYTNational) November 25, 2017 .
