Background info: The German neonazi scene has received renewed attention at home and abroad since German unification in 1990. Xenophobic attacks on predominantly dark-skinned foreigners and desecrations of Jewish cemeteries regularly make headlines especially but not exclusively in East German cities and towns. Skinhead and neonazi movements, although deeply anti-international in their ideology, are also organizing across borders in both Eastern and Western Europe, as recent developments in Scandinavia and former communist countries have shown.
While promoting anti-semitic symbols and nazi emblems is illegal in Germany, the internet provides free access to plenty of propaganda material available on US websites. Indeed, anti-semitic films from the Nazi era are exclusively advertised there. When 88-year-old James W. von Brunn gunned down security guard Stephen Tyrone Johns at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. in June 2009 wing extremist groups in the US, too, received renewed attention. Racially-motivated arson attacks on churches in Texas are the latest in a string of right wing violence since President Obama became the first black president.

Brandeis supports domestic Terrorists yet slanders law-bidding citizens for exercising FREE Speech.
This is some of Chips thoughts on Rush etc.:
“What about the right-wing media foghorns? Convicted in the fatal shooting of abortion provider Dr. George Tiller in a church in Wichita, Kansas, Scott Philip Roeder was a regular consumer of conservative talk radio, television, and websites. But did Bill OReilly, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beckor any other commentator whipping up an audience with overheated demonizing rhetoricactually help pull the trigger?
Its not that simple, explains Chip Berlet, senior analyst for the independent think tank Political Research Associates (PRA), in a new study entitled Toxic to Democracy: Conspiracy Theories, Demonization, and Scapegoating. They are not legally culpable for the assassination of Dr. Tiller, says Berlet, but they must share some portion of moral responsibility for creating a dangerous environment.”
According to Berlet:
“Right-wing pundits demonize scapegoated groups and individuals in our society, implying that it is urgent to stop them from wrecking the nation. Some angry people in the audience already believe conspiracy theories in which the same scapegoats are portrayed as subversive, destructive, or evil. Add in aggressive apocalyptic ideas that suggest time is running out and quick action mandatory and you have a perfect storm of mobilized resentment threatening to rain bigotry and violence across the United States.”
Memo to all race baiters. Nazis wanted socialism. Tea party people want freedom and liberty for all.
This is what is happening in acedemia. Branding people that speak out against the Gov in it’s manic power drive as crazies.
Seems the crazies are the Acedemics that are give the MINDLESS followers of Zero an excuse to attack American Citizens. (See:N O,La)
Megyn Kelly was just discussing this on Fox with Juan Williams. Williams, frankly, did a very good job of confronting this example of liberal ‘think’. He stated categorically, it is nuts, and the university should rethink their programs. There is now way Tea Party activists can, or should, be grouped with extremism.
They are not legally culpable for the assassinations
performed by Dr. Tiller, says Berlet, but they must share some portion of moral responsibility for creating a environment that accepts and encourages abortion.
There fixed it.
Megyen just showed a poll result that has 58% of Americans believe the Gov is Broken.
Are THEY Nazis also according to Brandeis?
Suicidal Secular Jews.
Yeah I bet they hate Netanyahu too.
We must send you to reeducation camp for your own good, to keep you from becoming a right-wing terrorist!
That need to be on a giant screen, blaring for all the lefties to see and hear. Or a BillBoard might be in order.
Is this a picture from one of the Dems school for radicals? /S
Their use of the Swastika would point to that...
I think it’s a picture from the Chinese Cultural Revolution, but I have no doubt campus liberals would love to give the same treatment to the conservatives these people are slandering as somehow deranged for being “right wing”.
Check this guy out:
Also this site he is part of is virulent hate of TPMembers.
An excellent example of why these people cannot be trusted with any measure of any political power at any level.
Did I miss it again? This was claimed back during the Clinton era too, and I still don't think it was ever documented then either. This must be an urban myth that they drag out of the trunk during every democrat presidency. What was reverend Wright's view on Jews? Did he burn his own church down? Must be he went so far left, he's now right. Swear I need a program nowadays.
Goes after Assemblyman chuck Devore,(R-Ca)
The Church burnings in TX:
Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and explosives officials revealed Sunday that the task force created to stop the arsonists had indeed two men in custody.
The two men arrested are Jason Robert Bourque, 19, of Lindale and Daniel George McAllister, 21, of Ben Wheeler in connection with the East Texas fires. ATF officials later revealed that no arrest has been made concerning the fire that destroyed a historic church in Temple.
