Hate Groups Copy ISIS Radicalization Method to Produce Racist/Misogynist White Male Predators

The Chumph’s racist support groups have stolen a page from ISIS to produce white supremacist terrorists and hate criminals. The massive spike in hate crimes since the Chumph’s “election” have in surprising number been committed by children and teens who are just acting out on the hate they hear at home.The Chumph’s Storm Troopers are in place…

How ‘men’s rights’ activist websites have become recruiting hubs for white nationalism

The election of Donald Trump was driven in part by the emergence of a white nationalist movement in the United States that has taken to calling itself the “alt-right.”

But how did we get here? The Guardian has published a disturbing report showing how young white men are gradually being radicalized against feminists and minorities through so-called “pick-up artist” websites that are there to ostensibly offer them tips for succeeding in sexual conquests.

As writer Abi Wilkinson explains, these websites give many men an outlet to vent misogyny against women who have rejected them, all while railing against feminists for purportedly denying them their rightful places atop society.

“On their forums I’ve read long, furious manifestos claiming that women are all sluts who ‘ride the cock carousel’ and sleep with a series of ‘alpha males’ until they reach the end of their sexual prime, at which point they seek out a ‘beta cuck’ to settle down with for financial security,” she writes. “I’ve lurked silently on blogs dedicated to ‘pick-up artistry’ as men argue that uppity, opinionated, feminist women – women like myself – need to be put in their place through ‘corrective rape.’”

While this sounds disturbing enough in and of itself, Wilkinson says that these forums do not simply limit themselves to hostility toward women, but toward people of other races and ethnicities as well. In particular, she notes that the sites often traffic in white men’s sexual anxiety about dark-skinned men stealing away white women whom should be “theirs” by right.

“Reading through the posting history of individual aliases, it’s possible to chart their progress from vague dissatisfaction, and desire for social status and sexual success, to full-blown adherence to a cohesive ideology of white supremacy and misogyny,” she writes. “Neofascists treat these websites as recruitment grounds. They find angry, frustrated young men and groom them in their own image.”

Donald Trump a Gift to ISIS…And the White Supremacist Internet

The Donald is firing up the haters…Once moribund, and basically restricted to the hard core troglodytes, sites like the White Supremacist Stormfront now see 1 million hits a month, an a 40% rise in traffic each time the Trumpazoid disparages minorities…

Donald Trump’s Campaign Has ‘Reenergized’ the White-Supremacist Internet

Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoricis so popular that the best-known white-supremacist site on the web, Stormfront, says it’s installing new servers to handle all the traffic the Republican presidential front-runner has generated.

Talking to Politico, Stormfront founder Don Black said Trump’s campaign had reenergized the white-nationalist movement, and Stormfront has the traffic to prove it. He said Stormfront now sees a million unique visitors a month, and traffic spikes 30 to 40 percent whenever Trump makes a controversial statement about minorities.

“Demoralization has been the biggest enemy and Trump is changing all that,” Black said.

Even David Duke, infamous racist politician and former Ku Klux Klan figurehead, agrees Trump has been great for racist movements.

“He’s made it ok to talk about these incredible concerns of European Americans today,” Duke told Politico.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, finding a rare point of agreement with Stormfront, also told Politico that Trump has reenergized hate groups. The civil-rights organization told Politico the bloviating billionaire has been “driving online chatter” among white-power groups.

Perhaps more disturbing are the white supremacists who like Trump’s anti-Mexican, anti-Muslim pronouncements, but feel he hasn’t gone far enough. Banning all Muslim immigration to the U.S. sounds great to them, but they worry Trump doesn’t have the dedication to activate the military and follow through with his plan.

The Terrorist Next Time

There will be more terrorist attacks in America.

Why?

Because all of the conditions where terrorism is useful as a weapon exist, and some politicians, and right wing media are actively recruiting for ISIS.

America has minority populations suppressed or subjected to injustice by the majority. Domestic terrorism, whether legally sanctioned through the Police Departments and Judicial System, or that done by right wing and white supremacist groups is aimed at controlling the minority population(s), is in vast majority aimed at Minorities.  A retaliatory  bomb or killing causes the majority to implement more repressive measures, assuring further disenfranchisement by the minority group…making recruitment of terrorists easy. re: Israel and the Arab Uprising

Terrorism is a means of asymmetric warfare. Your enemy is bigger, stronger, and has access to advanced weaponry – and in any head on fight is going to win. The near certainty of losing any armed conflict is why black folks did not react more violently to Jim Crow, and was the principle thinking behind development of using peaceful resistance as he basis for demanding Civil Rights.

In the past, rebel armies focused primarily on stealth and attacking military targets. Modern technology largely makes that a risky enterprise. One of the people whose tactics are studied by the US Military is Geronimo, whose stealth attacks, mobility, and guile tied the Mexican and US MIlitary of the time in knots for decades. However, in light of what the Apache really did, which was to attack farms and small settlements massacring the inhabitants, today they likely would be seen as terrorists. The Apache were subdued eventually, basically because they ran out of fighters.

ISIS and Al Qaeda don’t have a manpower issue and steadily recruit from the more than 1 billion Muslims in the world, as well as converts. They have been successful in recruiting even in the non-Middle Eastern, non-Muslim communities in the US and Europe. Anyone believing a terrorist is going to look like a brown skinned middle eastern guy…Is a fool, and deserves whatever said terrorist does to him/her. The principal weakness of ISIS is the same religion that joins their soldiers. Ergo, their variation is exclusionary (unlike real Islam), thus meaning that that have not so far been able to make coalitions with other groups on the basis of “the enemy of my enemy”. For the US, that is good news.

However, any attempt to target or suppress the Muslim Community in the US becomes a self fulfilling prophecy by recruiting more radicals for ISIS.

Meaning asshats like those in this video are a terrorist organizers best friend. At least these Republican/conservative/right wingers don’t have to worry about being attacked themselves – simply because they are too good as Useful Fools in recruiting American Jihadis.

What they had better worry about is Americanized Jihadis being able to form alliances and radicalize other disenfranchised groups.

‘They’re Coming Here to Kill Us!’: Pirro, Geraldo Spar on Guns, Radical Islam

Judge Jeanine Pirro and Geraldo Rivera had a spirited debate this morning about the threat from radical Islam and guns in the United States.

Pirro seized on reports that a neighbor saw suspicious activity by the Muslim husband and wife who carried out Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, but didn’t say anything to police.

The judge said that this is a “new time” and it demands that people speak out regardless of political correctness.

Rivera pushed back that the peril to America does not only come from Muslims, pointing to other recent mass shootings by non-Muslims.

It has also emerged that the woman involved in the attack was in the U.S. on a K-1 visa.

Pirro said it’s a clear example of the government being unable to keep out those who want to do us harm, while claiming 10,000 Syrian refugees can be properly vetted.

“What’s happening is the Muslim jihadists want to kill us. If we ignore that, we are suckers,” said Pirro.

Rivera said guns are also part of the problem, arguing it’s easier to get a gun license than a driver’s license in America.

The Last Black Engineer at Twitter…

One of the problems with the social media job sites is that they encourage you to post a picture. People who want to discriminate on age, race, or ethnicity easily can do so. This facilitates job discrimination, which by the statistics is common in a number of industries, and epidemic in terms of age discrimination. I suggest taking down your pic (and let’s not even go into having an open Facebook) to make that discrimination a bit harder, and to eliminate any connection to any group which might identify your ethnicity. It won’t fix the Dayvonwon, and Tramaninanisha problem…But it helps.

The other hurdle is the automated resume readers used by recruiters. I worked for GE a number of years ago, where nearly everyone in management went by the title “Manager”. A Manager in GE terms could be a guy who managed 5 floor sweepers in the office at night – or a guy with 28,000 reports and responsibility for a billion dollar manufacturing business. An automated resume checker looking for “keywords” can (and usually does) miss that. Further with the explosion of job titles, and the fact that in small companies on manager can wear a lot of hats makes the job search really an exercise in listing keywords, and not qualifications. Some years ago, just to screw the system, I searched out the keywords and phrases utilized by the brain-dead tools, and listed them all alphabetically as the last page of my resume. Dozens of calls a day, about 80% for jobs at 1/2 or less of my salary from the HR autobots who hadn’t bothered to read the resume, or if they did, had no idea what was being said. Not a loss – because any company utilizing this sort of tool to recruit executive level candidates, is so effed up even if you take the job – the problems are so massive, you can’t fix it.

Lastly, the problem with the West Coast companies in terms of hiring qualified black engineers and managers is twofold. One, the tend to hire from each other, meaning the same group of mostly white and Asian folks just circulate, and two – due to re-segregation legislation like Prop 209 in California…There are very few black or Hispanic graduates in the STEM Field on the West Coast. The are, however plenty graduating from universities on the East Coast, which wasn’t infected by that Ward Connerly racism disease. Second issue is getting those grads to move to the “left coast”, into a corporate and community environment which may be hostile. Not saying there is hostility – but I’m just sayin’ most black folks feel a little more comfortable, when there are more black folks walking around than would commonly be found on the streets of Sydney Australia. Especially when you consider that the majority of black STEM degree holders are coming from HBCUs.

Here is the case of Twitter…Which I would estimate derives about 30-40% of their Tweets from black folks.

Top Black Engineer Blasts Twitter’s Lack Of Diversity

The company no longer has any African-Americans in engineering leadership positions, the former Twitter employee says.

Twitter say it’s committed to creating a more diverse workforce, but, like the rest of the tech industry, it has yet to succeed. This week, a former employee offered a glimpse into the beleaguered microblogging company’s struggle to be more inclusive.

“With my departure, Twitter no longer has any managers, directors, or VP’s of color in engineering or product management,” Twitter Engineering Manager Leslie Miley wrote on Medium on Tuesday. Miley was among those laid off from the company in October, although he made clear his intention to leave before the company announced the cuts, according toTechCrunch.

Elaborating about his time as one of Twitter’s few black engineers, Miley critiqued the company for failing to push back against unconscious bias as it seeped into hiring practices and culture:

Personally, a particularly low moment was having my question about what specific steps Twitter engineering was taking to increase diversity answered by the Sr. VP of Eng at the quarterly Engineering Leadership meeting. When he responded with “diversity is important, but we can’t lower the bar.” I then realized I was the only African-American in Eng leadership.

There are few African-American or Latino employees in any part of the company — and none at the top, according to the company’s own diversity data, released in August.

This, however, is not just a Twitter problem. It’s a tech industry problem, as Miley noted in a separate post, written earlier in October, about diversity in his field. Miley presents a theory as to why this is the case: It’s about pattern matching. Successful people think future successful people are going to look like them (or the people they see around them). When a company hires for a specific pattern, it’s not a surprise that everyone begins to look the same.

This is why Miley thinks that younger tech companies are actually less diverse than the older companies. From Miley’s post:

This shows up in recruiting organizations targeting specific schools, employee referrals, and promotions of like minded individuals. Yahoo > Google > LinkedIn > FaceBook > Twitter. After Yahoo each of these companies’ diversity numbers have been worse than the company that followed them. I believe this is because Google recruited from Yahoo, LinkedIn from Google, and so on. Each subsequent company becomes less diverse due to the sub-conscious amplification of educational, cultural and work history biases.

Twitter, meanwhile, is sticking to its diversity commitment….More here

White Supremacists and Facts – Defeating the Racist Lies on the Internet

Said I was going to talk a bit about how to dissect the racist blathering by conservatives. This is Lesson #1

Actually have a picture of my Mom teaching in one of these old schools with a potbelly stove to heat the classroom… And that was in the early 50’s. This isn’t it.

The right absorbs racism from many of their right wing Internet sites. One of their favorite topics is black crime. The second is interracial crime claiming that white folks are under attack by black folks. All with numbers from seemingly unimpeachable sources such as the DOJ Annual Crime Reports.

Since about 1992, when Dinesh D’Souza and white supremacist Jared Taylor published their books – this (mis) information has been rattling around Internet, and taken as Gospel by many conservatives.

The National Review is one of the right wing publications with a less than sterling reputation in terms of it’s writers spewing racism. Manning the racism desk there are several folks, among them Heather McDonald, who spew virulent racist crap for a living.

Check out this article –

The Shameful Liberal Exploitation of the Charleston Massacre

Let’s look at those numbers which she got off one or the other white supremacist site….

In 2012, blacks committed 560,600 acts of violence against whites (excluding homicide), and whites committed 99,403 acts of violence (excluding homicide) against blacks, according to data from the National Crime Victimization Survey provided to the author. Blacks, in other words, committed 85 percent of the non-homicide interracial crimes of violence between blacks and whites, even though they are less than 13 percent of the population.

Now assuming she didn’t lie about the overall statistic (which is probable)…There are 6.2 white folks for every black person in this country.

Here is how it is done properly –

http://www.stats.indiana.edu/v…

The crime rate for white folks committing violent crimes against blacks is 100,000x 99,403/40,000,000 = 2485 per 100,000

The black on white violent crime rate is 100,000 X 560,600/248,000,000/ = 226 per 100,000

Ergo a black person is 11x  (2485/226 = 10.99) more likely to have a violent crime committed against them by a white person than vice versa.

And THAT is why the DOJ and FBI ALWAYS express their numbers in terms of rate per 100,000. What McDonald is done is standard white supremacist trickery, by lying about how the numbers actually work and ignoring the population differences.

Now – the white nationalist sites the author is quoting depend on existing white predilection to racism, poor intellect,  or pure stupidity to sell their tawdry racist wares.

And McDonald is a racist POS for repeating this crap, when if she had an IQ above table salt she would have known better. The National Review apparently supports this. And she repeats the various versions of the white racist song over and over in virtually every article she writes.

Dylann Root was recruited by the same sort of numerical trickery – which is the objective of promoting this sordid racist propaganda.

Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places

This “independent” candidate for Governor in Colorado has apparently been having trouble finding a running mate to run for the position of LT. Governor…

I guess he is SO independent, he doesn’t have anyone else in his “party”…

His solution???

CraigsList.

Considering the level of trouble Craigslist has recently had in it’s “personals” ad section

Might I suggest eHarmony?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Talking Points Memo caught up with Clark to see how the search was going, and Clark made sure to point out that, despite the loose qualifications, his team’s vetting is making the competition of the spot much more cutthroat than the ad seems to indicate:

Clark says that the ad has been “really, really successful” — but that out of the “well over 200 or 300 applications” that the listing had yielded so far, not everyone’s making the cut. “There’s 70 to 75 percent that I would say are not qualified for an office of that caliber,” he says.

Nevertheless, Clark vows to find a place in his campaign for all of them. “We’re going to bring them in and put them to work in another area,” he said. “Come on in. We’ll put you on the list. We’ll listen to you.”
