There Were Very Fine People On Both Sides, Said Donald J. Trump


If you say anything mean about Trump's core supporters, he will come right to their defense-- as long as he thinks he can get away with it. I wonder if anyone will ask him about the neo-Nazi strategy that ABC News is reporting. The pandemic fits right into their insane agenda.
Racist extremist groups, including neo-Nazis and other white supremacists, are encouraging members who contract novel coronavirus disease to spread the contagion to cops and Jews, according to intelligence gathered by the FBI.

In an alert obtained by ABC News, the FBI’s New York office reports that "members of extremist groups are encouraging one another to spread the virus, if contracted, through bodily fluids and personal interactions."

The FBI alert, which went out on Thursday, told local police agencies that extremists want their followers to try to use spray bottles to spread bodily fluids to cops on the street. The extremists are also directing followers to spread the disease to Jews by going "any place they may be congregated, to include markets, political offices, businesses and places of worship."

The FBI declined to comment on the alert, but issued a statement saying: "FBI field offices routinely share information with their local law enforcement partners to assist in protecting the communities they serve. These products are intended to be informative in nature, and as such, they contain appropriate caveats to describe the confidence in the sourcing of information and the likelihood of the assessment. Additionally, when written at a local level, these products will note that the perspective offered may be limited to the field office’s area of responsibility."

"Anti-government folks in America love to target law enforcement as a symbol of America’s authority," said Don Mihalek, the executive vice president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association Foundation and an ABC News contributor. "It’s just sad that that's their focus at a time of crisis in the nation."

Organizations that monitor the internet for white supremacist messaging have been seeing chatter for weeks that blames Jews and Jewish leaders for both the coronavirus and the global response, including the shut down of all but essential government functions in places like New York, New Jersey and California.

"From pushing the idea that Jews created the coronavirus virus to sell vaccines to encouraging infected followers to try to spread the illness to the Jewish community and law enforcement, as the coronavirus has spread, we have observed how white-supremacists, neo-Nazis and others have used this to drive their own conspiracy theories, spread disinformation and incite violence on their online platforms," said Michael Masters, the head of Secure Communities Network, an umbrella group that coordinates security for Jewish organizations and synagogues around the country.

"While the world faces a deadly pandemic, it’s a stark reminder that certain groups-- notably the Jewish community and law enforcement-- must also continue the battle against those who wish to hurt or kill them," Masters continued. "As the economic situation remains fragile and civil society disrupted, the potential for the followers of hate to act becomes more likely... and more deadly."
"The coronavirus crisis has exposed America as lacking a true health care system," Oklahoma progressive congressional candidate Tom Guild told me today. "The current for-profit system lurches from one drug to another to maximize profits and from one fashionable and expensive treatment to another to add to their bottom line. If we ever needed universal health care achieved through Medicare for All, now is the time. The national emergency also has ripped a gigantic hole in the so-called best economy ever and shredded beyond recognition our already tenuous safety net. This exposes how unstable the financial bottom line is for millions of American families. Everything from the crashing stock market to unprecedented growth in unemployment to the growing insecurity of Americans and their families are flashing red lights. To add hate groups with plans to exploit the health crisis and foment their racist and toxic anti-Semitic agenda further poisons an already dangerous and toxic brew. Hopefully our republic can withstand the many serious systemic problems facing America at this difficult and perilous moment in our country’s history."

If true, these losers will be among he first to die. Maybe then we can survive long enough to create a new society which has no place for them.

sheepdoggery? Surely he knows that his house tyrant, Pelosi, will never let MFA out for a breath of air. Health insurance and phrma will pay billions in return.

anyone who votes for a democrap expecting MFA or GND is a fucking idiot.
