Did we have a white supremacist thread?



And check out what the guy in front NOT saluting is doing. I still think the Kavanaugh aide was doing it on purpose, "sincerely" or not.

That is some seriously weird and stupid stuff.

Idiots.

Looks like one guy in the back wasn't having it. One guy out of all the idiots.

I noticed that guy too but I think he should have just refused to be photographed with these idiots, except who knows how it went down. Maybe he didn't know they'd be doing that crap until it was time to take the picture.

I guess its legit since apparently a Baraboo HS administrator has a tweet out on it.

All males in the pic. That just seemed weird to me, since it is public, not an all-male school.

A football team sport pic would explain all male. Can't think of any other scenario of a where someone says- " how about a picture of only the guys this time",for this large a group - even a prom.

Anyways, they do like their sausages in Sconnie though.

All-white, not a segregation/ fairly normal up there.

There's nothing dumber than a teenage male. I want to believe that's all there really is to this picture, but I'm sure at least some percentage of the dolts shown here will go on to become alt-right/white nationalists. My understanding of the whole alt-right movement is that a lot of them just started out trolling on message boards for a reaction, but eventually sincerely became the awful people they were pretending to be.

I ran across this very long and very disturbing read on BBC's website:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-45919730

Thankfully, this group isn't very big, but its mere existence is downright sickening.

These two paragraphs struck me as very similar to what we saw occur in Charlottesville:


BBC News wrote:
Members, who dressed in black during demonstrations, promoted the idea that the UK was on the brink of a "race war", and that a predatory elite was deliberately encouraging immigration in an attempt to destroy the native white population.

The group claimed to be patriotic, but was hostile to all domestic institutions, the rule of law, the democratic process, and everyone who did not share its worldview.

"Blackkklansman" reminded me how Duke had faded from general public attention over the decades. To see him elevated again among the Trump very fine people is alarming

When I see something like that, I wonder at what age I would have had the nerve to not follow along.

Maybe it’s a good thing that my Trumper Dad was not really a great (positive) influence in my life. Not sure I remember any Atticus Finch moments from him.
