Daily Trumpazoid 10/19

Today’s Trumpazoid violence

Memorial to Emmitt Till blasted with bullets — but sign marking killer’s home adorned with flowers

A sign marking the spot where Emmett Till’s mangled body was found floating in the Tallahatchie River has been riddled with bullets — while a similar sign marking the home of his killer is adorned with flowers.

The 14-year-old Till was kidnapped, brutally beaten and shot execution-style by J.W. Milam and Roy Bryant on Aug. 28, 1955, after the teenager whistled at Bryant’s wife to impress his cousins and some other boys.

The men were acquitted after a brief trial, and Milam later said they were more worried about getting caught for stealing an industrial fan blade they used to weigh down Till’s body than they were about killing the black child.

“I didn’t intend to kill the n****r when we went and got him – just whip him and chase him back up yonder,” Milam told Look magazine in 1957. “But what the hell! He showed me the white gal’s picture! Bragged o’ what he’d done to her! I counted pictures o’ three white gals in his pocketbook before I burned it. What else could I do? No use lettin’ him get no bigger!”

Local authorities tried to quickly bury his body, but Emmett’s mother, Mamie Bradley, requested her son’s remains be sent home to Chicago — where she held an open-casket funeral to show the world what had happened to her son — and the black weekly Jet magazine published a photo of the boy’s mutilated remains.

The Emmett Till Memorial Commission put up eight signs in 2007 commemorating the boy’s death to help encourage tourism and raise money for a museum dedicated to his memory and for courthouse renovations in Sumner, reported Slate.

A Facebook user, Kevin Wilson Jr., recently visited the memorial marking the spot where Till’s body was recovered — and he found the metal sign had been shot dozens of times.

The signs have been vandalized, stolen and shot repeatedly since they went up nearly a decade ago.

One on U.S. 49 was stolen in 2007, and another in Tallahatchie County was damaged the following year — when the original sign marking the site where Till’s body was found was torn down by vandals.

Local authorities promised at the time to preserve the markers, saying they wanted to send a defiant message to the vandals.

But the replacement sign was riddled with bullet holes by 2013, and the same sign remains at the site where Till’s body was located has endured even more gunshots from a variety of angles.

The Emmett Till Interpretive Center opened and the courthouse was renovated last year with the help of the Emmett Till Memorial Commission.

Milam, who died from spine cancer at 61 in 1980, became a pariah and suffered financial ruin after confessing to the murder following his acquittal.

But a sign marking Milam’s home at the time of Till’s execution has not suffered the same abuse as the memorial to the slain boy.

Locals have even planted flowers around the sign marking where Milam, who later lost his friends and became an itinerant farmer, lived when he kidnapped the child and committed one of the most brutal and notorious crimes in U.S. history.

The Daily Trumpizoid (AKA the Deplorables) – 10/18

It seems that nearly every day Trumpazoids, egged on  by their candidate the Chumph commit some act of physical or verbal violence against non-whites.

So, I am going to begin tracking these. Two episodes so far today –

Boise man threatens black family with knives before school: ‘I’m going to cut some n****rs’

Christopher GauthierAn Idaho man grabbed two kitchen knives and threatened to “cut some n****rs” during a bizarre encounter with his black neighbors.

Christopher Gauthier, of Boise, came out of his home Friday morning with the knives as his neighbors were leaving for the day, reported the Idaho Statesman.

The victim said he loaded his two young daughters into his car for school, turned on the engine to warm it up and went back inside to get an item he’d forgotten.

That’s when the 38-year-old Gauthier ran outside, opened the car door and made a “scary face” at the girls, turned off the engine and ran back into his apartment with the neighbor’s keys.

The girls ran crying toward their home.

The neighbor yelled for Gauthier to return his car keys, and police said he came outside and threatened the man with two kitchen knives.

“You threatened to cause injury to him while holding two knives and indicating that you were to ‘cut some n****rs,” said Magistrate Daniel Steckel during Gauthier’s arraignment Monday afternoon.

The neighbor called police, but Gauthier denied having the keys and refused to open his door.

Police executed a search warrant and found the keys, and Gauthier was charged with malicious harassment and burglary, both felonies.

The magistrate set bond at $200,000, and Gauthier is schedule to return to court Oct. 28.

Trump-loving Pennsylvania mayor Charles Wasko forced out over insanely racist Facebook posts

The mayor of a small Pennsylvania borough is stepping down after sparking outrage by posting images on his Facebook page comparing President Barack Obama and his family to apes and referencing a noose, a newspaper reported.

The council of West York, a community less than 100 miles west of Philadelphia, voted unanimously on Monday to accept Mayor Charles Wasko’s offer to resign, according to the York Daily Record.

Wasko’s resignation will be effective on Oct. 21, with the president of the council filling out the rest of the mayor’s term until an election next year, the newspaper reported. His second term will end in January 2017.

Wasko had resisted calls to step down earlier this month, after he was accused of racism for the images on his page. The West York Borough Council voted 7-0 on Oct. 3 to censure him over the posts — which compared the Obama family to monkeys and joked about lynching the president.

There have been instances across the country of government officials spreading racist images and jokes since Obama took office in 2009 as the first African-American U.S. president. In 2013, a federal judge in Montana retired after acknowledging that he had used court email to circulate a racist joke about Obama.

Trumpizoids Arrested for Domestic Terrorism

More Trump crazies in the news. Three white nationalists were arrested in Kansas planning to blow up an apartment building because many of the residents were Somalis.

3 Militia Members Arrested In Connection With Plot To Carry Out Terror Attack On Kansas Mosque

Three Men Charged With Plotting Attack On Somali Immigrants In Kansas

Three men have been arrested and charged with planning to use a weapon of mass destruction in a terrorist attack on a mosque and housing complex in a western Kansas town where Somali immigrants live and worship,according to the U.S. Justice Department.

The men were part of a militia group whose members called themselves “The Crusaders,” Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said at a news conference. They had conspired to detonate a bomb at an apartment complex in Garden City, Kan., which houses about 120 people, many of whom are Muslim.

The defendants had allegedly conducted surveillance of the housing complex, stockpiled firearms and bomb-making materials and had even written a manifesto that was to be published in conjunction with the attack, which was scheduled for Nov. 9, the day after the presidential election.

“One of [the defendants] said the bombing would ‘wake people up,’ ” Beall said.

The arrests come after an eight-month investigation of the three men, identified as Curtis Allen, 49, Gavin Wright, 49, and Patrick Eugene Stein, 47. During that time, investigators say, the men considered a number of targets, including churches and public officials who supported Somali immigrants, as well as landlords who rented to Somalis.

They allegedly settled on the apartment complex. Some local people call the complex “Somali Town,” says Garden Valley Church pastor Steve Ensz.

Ensz’s church is about a mile from the apartment complex and helps refugees acclimate to life in western Kansas. He tells NPR he was “saddened, but not surprised” to hear the news and says that most people in Garden City are “good moral people, welcoming to refugees.”

When told that the defendants allegedly wanted to “wake people up,” Ensz said, “They’re the ones that need to be woken up.”

If convicted, the three men would face up to life in federal prison.

Conservatives Again Show Their Racist Behinds on Tubman Being Added to $20 Bill

The conservatives even trotted out their favorite Uncle Tom, Uncle Ben Carson…

Followed by his owner – Donald Trump


They only want to honor white men: The pathetic conservative meltdown over the Harriet Tubman $20 bill exposes the right’s petty identity politics

The only reason to be mad about the changes to the money is a belief that only white men should receive tribute

On Wednesday, the Treasury Department unveiled a plan to redesign the $20, $10, and $5 bills to better reflect American history, moving some of the (all white, all male) former presidents around on the bills and making room to put luminaries like Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King, and Eleanor Roosevelt on various bills. The biggest shift will be Tubman, who helped create and run the Underground Railroad for escaped slaves, gracing the front of the $20 bill, kicking Andrew Jackson to the back.

(Why Jackson, the Donald Trump of his time — except more genocidal — needs to stay on the bill is another question altogether.)

The Treasury’s decision should be non-controversial. After all, we all agree that history is made by more than presidents (plus, the $100 bill has a non-president on it, which confirms this is a shared belief), and that people other than white men exist and matter. Don’t we? You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who disagrees publicly with these contentions, except perhaps on some Twitter accounts that Trump keeps retweeting.

Yet, in a move that was entirely predictable, right wing pundits are in meltdown, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that, regardless of any surface claims to believe in equality, the reality is that they adhere to the belief that white men are the only ones who really matter and the rest of us are just the supporting cast.

The strategy that modern conservative propaganda uses, when called upon to rationalize overt racism and sexism, is to get conservative women and people of color to express the sentiments. It’s a cheap and obvious but unfortunately effective ploy, and one that was immediately employed by the folks at Fox News to appeal to their audience members who want to hear why they aren’t bigots, even though they revolt at women and black people on money.

Greta Van Susteren played her part to the hilt on Fox Wednesday night, even going so far as to say that she’s “a feminist”, before offering an opinion that disproved this contention.

“Rather than dividing the country between those who happen to like the tradition of our currency and want President Andrew Jackson to stay put and those who want to put a woman on a bill,” she argued.

Denying women the vote, keeping women from working, putting women in the stocks for having a sharp tongue, treating women as subhuman property of men are also “traditions,” you know. The whole point of being a feminist is refusing to accept that tradition trumps a woman’s right to equality. But beyond just that, appeals to tradition are considered a logical fallacy for a good reason. The idea that we should keep doing a stupid and harmful thing because we have done it that way in the past isn’t a grand and noble idea. It’s refusing to learn from experience.

Of course, no one actually buys this argument, not really. The folks waxing poetic about the impropriety of change when it comes to the currency probably aren’t writing their sentiments on parchment paper with quill pens. The only time they cling to tradition is if the tradition flatters their prejudices, in this case the prejudicial belief that only white men can be great Americans.

Van Susteren pretended to be open to compromise by arguing that Tubman should go on a new bill, recommending a $25 denomination. This gambit is quickly becoming a popular one for conservative pundits and politicians who are pandering to white men who think that having only white men on their money somehow makes them superior people by association.

Ben Carson, doing his duty of offering cover for racist opinions, argued on Fox News, “I love Harriet Tubman. I love what she did, but we can find another way to honor her. Maybe a $2 bill.”

Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump picked up this argument.

“Maybe we need to do another denomination — maybe we do a $2 bill,” Trump told Matt Lauer. “Yes, I think it’s pure political correctness — [Jackson’s] been on the bill for many, many years, and really represented someone who was really important to this country.”

If it’s not obvious what they’re doing here, let me spell it out for you: They’re pretending to be generous by offering to put Tubman on money that either doesn’t exist or people don’t use. The implication is that it’s only okay to honor women of color as long as you simultaneously assert that white men are still better...More

Trump’s Gettysburg in Wisconsin – White Nationalist’s Robocall


White nationalist group floods ‘every Wisconsin landline’ with robocalls backing Donald Trump

The leader of a self-proclaimed “white nationalist” group has sponsored robocalls in support of Donald J. Trump ahead of Wisconsin’s Tuesday Republican primary.

William Johnson told the Journal Sentinel that his group spent $6,000 to call “every Wisconsin landline” with the recorded message.

An older woman narrating the recording says that Trump “will be a fine president,” and promises that he “will respect all women and help preserve western civilization.”

The recording concludes by describing Johnson as “a farmer and a white nationalist.” The American Freedom Party and the American National super PAC are also mentioned.

Johnson explained to the Journal Sentinel that he felt it was important to include the words “white nationalist” in the call, and speculated that the narrator’s “sweet, grandmotherly voice” would make the message less controversial.

“I want people to hear, to feel comfortable with, the term ‘white nationalist,’” Johnson said.

At an event for Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday, Gov. Scott Walker called the robocall “outrageous.”

“I hope the people of this state are smart enough to see through that and denounce anything related to it,” Walker remarked.

Racists Freak Out Over Black Lead Actor in New Star Wars Movie

The sTrumpets let their racist hair down…

Racists Urge Boycott of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Over Black Lead, and Most of Them Love Trump

#BoycottStarWarsVII, which trended all day Monday on Twitter, is the brainchild of conservative Trump supporters against the diverse casting of J.J. Abrams’s sequel.

A wise Jedi once warned, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” Ahead of tonight’s debut of the newStar Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens trailer, it also led to a flurry of racist tweets fueled by the #BoycottStarWarsVII hashtag warning that the new Star Wars movie promotes “white genocide” and was made “to demoralize and destroy Whites.”

Somewhere in a galaxy far, far away, shaking his damn head, Yoda is.

There are things we can do right now, like not putting money in the pockets of those that produce propaganda.

Laughably enough, the racist, misogynistic, and anti-Semitic crusaders of the #BoycottStarWarsVII movement completely miss the point of every lesson ever built into the Star Wars franchise.

But it’s telling that their outrage came to a head only when the Star Warsmarketing campaign began making its push into the mainstream. Tonight’s trailer hits during Monday Night Football to push the new flick to the normcore dad masses and to non-diehards who maybe, probably, haven’t even heard there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out, let alone know or care that a black man and a woman lead the cast.

because white children deserve wholesome movies, not more PC anti-white diversity crap.

Clearly, these so-called fans aren’t too well-versed in their Jedi history. Their tweets raise many questions, like: Do the #BoycottStarWarsVII realize their hatred violates Yoda’s teachings? Have they forgotten Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu and Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, or realize that the Imperial Stormtroopers were cloned from the genetic material of Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett, played by part-Maori thesp Temuera Morrison?

Do they know Darth Vader was voiced by James Earl Jones? Or that it was the good guys of the rebellion who were accepting of other races and species as they battled the overwhelmingly pasty-white evil villains of the Empire?

because I am sick of muds being casted in white parts.

Perhaps not shockingly, a deep dive into the #BoycottStarWarsVII hashtag (which is now, delightfully, dominated by true blue fans ridiculing the racists), yields a curious overlap of racist Star Wars invective and pro-Donald Trump tweets. Here’s a rundown of the core tenets of the #BoycottStarWarsVII movement:


British actor John Boyega plays redeemed Stormtrooper Finn, one of the new young leads of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Yes, a black Stormtrooper. Internet racists already got their panties in a bunch when the first teaser trailer revealed Boyega sans helmet in his Stormtrooper uniform, birthing the #BlackStormTrooper hashtag last November.

Obvious liberal pandering by casting the First Lady as Han Solo’s co-pilot

The underlying belief, according to Twitter user @DarklyEnlighten, who identifies as a neoreactionary and with the Pro-Trump white supremacist “alternative right,” and previously tweeted that he hopes Trump would turn out to be a fascist, is thatStar Wars “belongs” exclusively to white people. That’s admittedly underscored by the fact that when George Lucas made Episode IV: A New Hope in 1977, 99 percent of his cast was either Caucasian, or extraterrestrial aliens covered in prosthetics.

“George, is everybody in outer space white?” John Landis says he asked Lucas after watching the first Star Wars. An emphasis on diversity increased as the sequels went on—Billy Dee Williams showed up in The Empire Strikes Back andReturn of the Jedi, earning instant legend status.

And directed by a Jew. Yet more lies meant to demoralize and destroy Whites.

How Conservatives Plan to Stop Black Lives Matter

You’ve seen Faux News try part of this…

Here’s the Conservative Playbook for Tearing Down Black Lives Matter

In the wake of last Friday’s murder of a Harris County, Texas, police deputy, Fox News pundits have bent over backward to find a way to connect the killing to the Black Lives Matter movement. A guest on the Fox talk show The Five on Mondaycalled the movement a “criminal organization,” and several hosts, including Bill O’Reilly, described it as a “hate group.”

Harris County law enforcement officials have yet to determine a motive for the shooting, and suspect Shannon Miles had been found mentally incompetent to stand trial on a felony assault charge in 2012. But that hasn’t stopped Fox News from showing a recent clip of protesters at the Minnesota State Fair chanting, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” as pundits discussed the Texas killing, or from running inflammatory on-screen banners that read “Murder Movement” and “Black Lives Matter Taunts Cop Killings.”

But this is not a new tactic from the right. Conservatives have long attempted to discredit black social movements by casting them as criminal. In fact, the law-and-order rhetoric they’ve espoused since the civil rights movement was invented to do just that.

In the 1950s, for example, Southern conservative lawmakers and law enforcement officials argued that acts of civil disobedience by black civil rights activists violated the law, and they criticized support for civil rights legislation as rewarding lawbreakers. Federal courts that struck down Jim Crow laws, they chided, were soft on crime.

This rhetoric went mainstream in the late 1960s following the major civil rights victories of the decade. Richard Nixon and avowed segregationist George Wallace both ran on law-and-order platforms in the 1968 presidential election. In his speeches andpolitical ads, Nixon appealed to the “non-shouters and non-demonstrators” who were “not racist” and “not guilty of the crime that plagued the land,” contrasting them with protesters who had “cities up in smoke,” a thinly veiled reference to the race riots of the decade. Nixon blamed the courts for “going too far in weakening the peace forces against the criminal forces.” He used this coded language to appeal to racist voters at a time when overt racism was becoming less socially acceptable.

Conservative politicians, pundits, and voters continued using this language to rail against the Black Power movement in the 1970s and tie organizations like the Black Panther Party to neighborhood crime and increased drug use. They pointed to the ongoing race riots and the increase in urban crime that accompanied the migration of black Southerners to Northern cities during that period, as evidence that the Panthers’ philosophy of armed self-defense was contributing to violence and criminal activity. Nixon declared the war on drugs in 1971, prior to the explosion of the drug trade mid-decade, in a tough-on-crime move that functioned as a crackdown on the black people and communities that were supposedly “causing” crime, and the philosophy of racial equality that had contributed to it. (And similarly coded language was used to justify criminal-justice policies that targeted black communities and produced the nation’s mass incarceration crisis in the late 1980s and 1990s.)

Now Fox News has targeted the Black Lives Matter movement in the same way. The movement is calling for an end to violence, and its national voices have condemned violence against the police on numerous occasions. But the right insists it is to blame for murders of police officers. The number of peaceful protests dwarfs the number that have seen looting and property destruction, but conservative punditsinsist Black Lives Matter protesters are “thugs” and that the movement’s rhetoric encourages violence. Just as they sought to discredit the movement to upset the Jim Crow social order, these right-wing voices now seek to discredit the movement to upend the current system of racist policing.

Murders of police aren’t the fault of the Black Lives Matter movement. But don’t expect to hear that on Fox News anytime soon.
