Post Reply Associations between White Nationalists and Donald Trump
Posted 8/18/17 , edited 8/19/17
Someone on another forum made a compilation of associations between White Nationalists (KKK, Neo-nazis) and Donald Trump since the start of his campaign in 2015. Everything is backed up with a web link and occasionally there are relevant pictures.


Here is a link to the forum post. Please check it out. It is not too long.

The list is not completely everything but touches upon many of the ones that made significant headlines. I personally remember a number of these during the campaign period.

A reason that Trump did not speak out against an ISIS-style attack by a White Nationalist on August 12th is because he knows he has the loyal support of these kinds of people.


If a mod wants to put this in the Donald thread, so be it, but I think it is worthy of its own thread. I think it is important to make aware of these things in light of recent events and putting this in the Donald thread would just make it get lost within a few days.

Okay whoever reported needs to do some introspection. Don't try to shut someone down just because you disagree with them. Come on guys.

Edit: If the person who reported is reading this, I apologize. I guess I was just assuming the worst in people. The mod said that this was reported because the reporter thought it belonged in The Daily Donald. I'll try to be more open minded in the future.

If anything, he didn't say enough to call out the radical alt left terrorists
Here's one who cracked a disabled man in the head with a billy club several times while an undercover cop looked on.


Here's a man with a homemade flamethrower assaulting people.


Also it wasn't an "attack" it was self defense. You don't get to create illegal barricades in the street to trap cars so you can attack them without risking something bad happening, sorry.

I just want to clarify. Are you suggesting that James Alex Fields was acting in self-defense? I may be misunderstanding.

The man drove full speed into a group of people and even had his visor down to cover his face from the cameras. He new exactly what he was doing. His life wasn't being threatened, it wasn't self defense.

It’s official. We have a clinical case of mass hysteria – and one of the strangest I've ever seen. It’s not even about the event itself. It’s about Donald Trump’s reaction to the event. To liberals he must be the most famous and fascinating man who has ever lived. And it’s not even about whether Trump is a racist. It is self-evident that he is not, because there is no evidence that he is. His sin is that he has failed to express his outrage at the event in a particular way – or, more precisely, that he has expressed it in a way that doesn’t cater to the identity politics lobby.

Tearing down statues does nothing to address daily economic or educational challenges and most of us have a healthy instinctual opposition to making rapid societal changes at the behest of a shouting crowd.

Without arguing about the semantics of what is "full-speed" he clearly wanted to hurt people.

BTW I agree that Antifa are responsible for starting the violence, look at my earlier posts if you don't believe me, but the man was not acting in self-defense.

At Amyas Leigh: There is no such thing as "Alt-Left". There is an Alt-Right but there is no such thing as "Alt-Left". The Alt-Right basically think the Alt-Left is any liberal, democrat, moderate, and any person who opposes Trump. Alt-Left isn't a thing. Alt-Right is.


Those leftists who also did violent things were wrong to do what they did (such as the one you brought up in your post). However, over the campaign trail and since Trump was inaugurated, left-wing individuals have not been the only ones who have committed violence at these kinds of gatherings. Many right-wing individuals have too.


About Charlottesville, a white nationalist did an ISIS-style attack, killing one and injuring about 20 others as we all know now, and Trump doesn't want to denounce neo-nazis and KKK members.

There has been violence from both sides, but our president has been appealing to KKK members, Neo-nazis, white nationalists, etc., since 2015 and he won't denounce these extremists and fundamentalists. This is a huge deal. He's appealed to extremists and hate groups, wouldn't denounce them in the past, and after a tragedy, he still refuses to speak out against them. He doesn't want to. To KKK memebers and literal nazis. When many GOP members pressured him to do so, he very reluctantly did so, and then the next day he doubled down on the "but both sides!" stance.


The primary reason violence is happening at these gatherings, from left-wing people and right-wing people, is because of Donald Trump. He has made America notably worse since 2015. He is dividing us more than we were before he started his campaign. He is absolutely toxic for America.

Why didn't he try to rack up the kill count then? Why didn't he actually go full speed?
Why did he brake?
