  • Bennett: A fully right-wing government is a 'disaster'

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 25/6/22 | Ido Ben Porat
    Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has not ruled out sitting with MKs Benjamin Netanyahu (Likud), Bezalel Smotrich (Religious Zionism), and Itamar Ben Gvir (Otzma Yehudit), but opposes the formation for a "fully" right-wing government. In an interview with Channel 13 News, Bennett said, "A fully right-wing government, in the current sense, is, in my eyes, a disaster, because it does not have the balances." He added, "Netanyahu, Bezalel, and Ben Gvir...in a different constellation, can be fine, but a government trapped in the hands of the extreme is horrible and awful, even if it is the other side." .....
  • Biden FCC Nomination Gigi Sohn Speaks at Event Touting Government Breakup of ‘Right Wing Propaganda Machine’

    (I changed the picture, the original was a Getty which we can't post)Gigi Sohn, the Biden Administration’s nomination for FCC commissioner, has attended a partisan event touting an FCC-led breakup of Sinclair Broadcasting Group’s “right wing propaganda machine,” adding to mounting evidence that the nominee is hopelessly partisan. The appointee would break the current 2-2 FCC tie in favor of the Democrats While FCC commissioners have a party affiliation, with two Democrat commissioners, two Republican commissioners, and one chair position typically held by whichever party holds the White House, commissioners are expected to remain relatively non-partisan in their outlook on...
  • German Federal Minister Wants Kindergarteners To Be Educated About “Right Wing Extremism” (No Mention Of Left-Wing Extremism Or Islam)

    German Federal Minister of the Interior Nancy Faeser says children in kindergarten should be taught about the dangers of right-wing extremism, but she didn’t mention left-wing extremism or Islam.“We have to smash right-wing extremist networks,” Faeser told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper. “The state of law must not accept calls for murder and threats.” The minister went on to assert that children as young as three years old should be socially engineered to be averse to right-wing radicalism. “We are resolutely combating this breeding ground for violence, but the fight against right-wing extremism starts much earlier, namely with good educational...

  • More than half of Americans view right-wing militia groups as a threat to US: poll

    More than half of Americans view right-wing militia groups as a threat to the U.S., with a third saying they pose an "immediate and serious threat" to the country, according to a poll from The Economist/YouGov. The poll was taken following the first anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection, when Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an effort to prevent Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 election. Members of known right-wing extremist groups including the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys and the Three-Percenters, have been charged in connection with the attack.
  • When your New World Order plans call for an Extremist Right Wing group and you don’t have one, you create your own. The American Nazi Party was created by the Deep State in the late 1950’s to sow domestic terror and doubt.

    The infiltration of right leaning groups or creation of groups like the Proud Boys or Oath Keepers by Federal Agencies would not be anything new. The American Nazi Party was founded in 1959 by George Lincoln Rockwell. The effort originally began in late 1957 or early 1958 when Rockwell met a financial sponsor (“fat-cat”) named Harold Noel Arrowsmith Jr. George Lincoln Rockwell is still pretty well known. If you watch the Amazon Series “The Man in the High Castle”, the Nazi Commandant for North America is named “George Lincoln Rockwell.” (The real Rockwell was assassinated in Virginia in 1967.) There...

    ACanadian political scientist has urged his country's government to prepare for the possibility of the United States becoming a right-wing dictatorship before 2030. In an op-ed published in The Globe and Mail on Friday, Thomas Homer-Dixon, an executive director of the Cascade Institute at Royal Roads University in British Columbia, warned his country had to prepare for the worst-case scenario. "By 2025, American democracy could collapse, causing extreme domestic political instability, including widespread civil violence," Homer-Dixon wrote. "By 2030, if not sooner, the country could be governed by a right-wing dictatorship. We mustn't dismiss these possibilities just because they seem...

    Over the last three years, FRONTLINE has collaborated with ProPublica to investigate the rise of extremism in America. In the aftermath of the assault on the U.S. Capitol, FRONTLINE and ProPublica team up again to examine how far-right groups were emboldened and encouraged by former President Trump and how individuals were radicalized and brought into the political landscape.

    Lone Conservative ^ | 10/14/2018 | NATHAN SHEELEY
    Fascism is most often described by leftist ideologues and talking heads as a philosophy attributed uniquely to the right of the political spectrum. They tend to claim that the inherent authoritarianism present in fascism is a foundational characteristic of mainstream right-wing thought. Not only is this misconception incorrect, but it’s dangerous; the inability to distinguish distinctive ideologies could lead to situations where true warning signs are missed.Many attribute the rise of fascism to Italy’s Mussolini. However, few know the name of the man Mussolini regarded as the father of fascism— Giovanni Gentile. Gentile was an Italian philosopher who was influenced...

    White supremacists and other like-minded groups have committed a majority of the terrorist attacks in the United States this year, according to a report by a security think tank that echoed warnings made by the Department of Homeland Security this month. The report, published Thursday by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, found that white supremacist groups were responsible for 41 of 61 “terrorist plots and attacks” in the first eight months of this year, or 67 percent. The finding comes about two weeks after an annual assessment by the Department of Homeland Security warned that violent white supremacy...

    New MI5 director-general Ken McCallum has confirmed that Islamist jihadists remain by far the biggest terror threat in Britain — but the mainstream media has chosen to hype his remarks on the comparatively minor threat from the far-right instead. “Islamist extremist terrorism… by volume remains our largest threat,” the Glasgow born spy boss confirmed in his first public address since taking over Britain’s domestic intelligence agency. “It is still the case that tens of thousands of individuals are committed to this ideology – and we must continually scan for the smaller numbers within that large group who at any given...
  • Repositioning Our Constitution - (We are not right wing!)

    Epoch Times ^ | 7/9/2020 | Steven Maikoski
    To The Editor: Years ago while the Republicans slept, the Democrats replanted our Constitution on the “right wing” of political measurements. It was the greatest political move in our nation’s history, for suddenly, the Constitution was an off-center philosophy, while radical, anti-constitutional politics became the middle ground, the mainstream. Our politics have followed that map, and the respect for our Constitution has nosedived. This incredible change resulted from simply moving the point of reference, the initial point. To illustrate the power of such a simple move, try it in your accounting. If you moved the decimal point in our dollars...

    Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault, and conservatives are having a field day, exultant that they’ve caught feminists in a new hypocrisy trap. A woman, with no corroboration beyond contemporaneous accounts, charges a powerful man with a decades-old crime? Hmm, doesn’t that sound mighty close to Christine Blasey Ford’s complaint against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh? Yet this time, many liberals who’ve championed the #MeToo movement seem skeptical? Gotcha! Tim Graham, executive editor of NewsBusters: “Where is the #MeToo movement on this story? What happened to their rigid ‘Believe All Women’ boilerplate?” Fox News host Tucker Carlson: “the infuriating,...

    The emerging global movement of rightwing populists is guilty of many things but ideological incoherence in choosing their enemies is generally not one of them. Whether it is Steve Bannon bashing Pope Francis, Matteo Salvini attacking the “do-gooders” in humanitarian NGOs or Marine Le Pen venting against the dull technocrats in Brussels, the populists go after a predictable, well-calculated set of targets. If anyone chooses their enemies well, it’s them.
  • This chant brought down the Berlin Wall. Now the far right has stolen it [CNN Biased headline]

    Grainy images of 70,000 protesters in Leipzig carrying candles and chanting "Wir sind das Volk" -- "We are the people!" -- were beamed across the world on October 9, 1989. The rally was a turning point in the fall of the Iron Curtain a month later. Kühne was one of the demonstrators who, in his words, "longed for a free and united country." Then a 21-year-old locksmith working at the state railway company, he said the uprising in his hometown was "the greatest thing I've ever experienced." Today he is again drawing inspiration from Germany's peaceful revolution -- this time,...

    New generations of Chinese immigrants hate affirmative action — and some are beginning to love Trump. On June 13, during a nasty storm, a group of Chinese New Yorkers gathered in front of the gates of Gracie Mansion, the New York mayor’s residence on the Upper East Side, to protest. Inside, Mayor Bill de Blasio was meeting with two dozen or so representatives of the Asian-American community to discuss his controversial plan to reform the meritocratic admissions process for the city’s specialized high schools — the first such meeting since he announced the plan out of the blue a year...

    German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has called for protests against right-wing extremism, claiming in an op-ed published in the Saturday edition of Bild newspaper that Germany “has a terrorism problem.” In the editorial, Maas responded to the recent murder of a German district president, Walter Lübcke, as well as death threats directed towards pro-migrant politicians Henriette Reker and Andreas Hollstein, the mayors of western German cities Cologne and Altena respectively. ”Eighty years after the beginning of World War II, politicians have again become victims of right-wing terrorists. Because of their beliefs. Because of their commitment to our country,” Maas wrote....

    New York University has canceled a "Reporting on the Far Right" elective undergraduate class after just two students signed up to take the course. NYU attracted headlines earlier this year after its decision to hire former New Yorker fact-checker Talia Lavin to teach the class. In June 2018, Lavin resigned from the magazine after making a false accusation against ICE agent Justin Gaertner for sporting what she believed was a Nazi tattoo, which turned out to be a 'Titan 2' symbol for former Marine veteran's platoon while serving in Afghanistan. “Canceling the class had nothing to do with Talia’s writings,...
