We have found that 47 million American adults – nearly 1 in 5 – agree with the statement that “the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump and Joe Biden is an illegitimate president.” Of those, 21 million also agree that “use of force is justified to restore Donald J. Trump to the presidency.” Our survey found that many of these 21 million people with insurrectionist sentiments have the capacity for violent mobilization. At least 7 million of them already own a gun, and at least 3 million have served in the U.S. military and so have lethal skills. Of those 21 million, 6 million said they supported right-wing militias and extremist groups, and 1 million said they are themselves or personally know a member of such a group, including the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys. Only a small percentage of people who hold extremist views ever actually commit acts of violence, but our findings reveal how many Americans hold views that could turn them toward insurrection.

When Lt. Michael Byrd and the other Black and brown police officers battled Trump’s attack force on Jan. 6, they committed an unpardonable sin against white racial authoritarianism and its believers and followers. Revenge and retaliation are inevitable. Lt. Michael Byrd’s peril will continue into the foreseeable future. He is now more than a man. He is a symbol for the white right and other American fascists, who are likely to perceive him as an ultimate trophy, as well as a way of avenging the killing of Ashli Babbitt. The threats of violence will not be limited to him. For the white right and the American neofascist movement, all Black people are now, to varying degrees, Michael Byrd.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is facing backlash for his latest attempt to use the Nazi-inspired “replacement theory” to accuse Democratic lawmakers of importing violent criminals into the country for political gain. On Wednesday, August 11, Carlson appeared on “Fox & Friends” where he spoke with the panel of hosts and shared details about the so-called “scandal involving the border.” Carlson chimed in saying, “I mean, you know what this tells you honestly? What’s happening at the border is not a crisis. A crisis is a flood in Bangladesh, it’s an act of God. This is an intentional act.” “This is the administration bringing felons, violent criminals into our country on purpose,” Carlson claimed. “Why would you do something like that? Only to destroy it. I mean, there’s no other explanation for this. It’s not an act of compassion. It’s an act of hostility against the United States in order to change it forever. I think this is the greatest scandal of my lifetime, what’s happening on the border right now.” Carlson went on to claim that Democrats have a “strategy” that includes importing “violent criminals” to increase their voter roll.

It appears that the white nationalist shooter may have killed a female relative at home before heading to the mosque. Such nice people.
The massacre by a white nationalist terrorist of mostly Mexican-Americans at El Paso was also accompanied by an online rant citing the New Zealand monster.
Donald Trump’s hateful rhetoric and tweets are part of this stochastic white terrorism phenomenon.
All terrorist acts in the United States in 2018 were carried out by white nationalists. All.
So what would happen if we took Trump’s bigoted and unfair statements on Muslims and just plugged in white nationalist instead? Those of us who are privileged in various ways might get a sense of how invidious and discriminatory Trump really has been.
What would happen if we ask why so few of the 53 GOP senators have come out to denounce white nationalism? What about prominent white nationalist media figures? Did Tucker Carlson denounce the El Paso massacre? Why is he denying that white nationalism even exists? Why don’t we hear from the white leaders when a white nationalist stages an attack such as Oslo?
via Valhalla Awaits! After White Terrorism at Oslo Mosque, what if Trump spoke about Supremacists the Way he does Islam?
The real danger of the white supremacist fanatics to the Muslim community, stimulated by this exploitation of fear, has not yet been recognised by the authorities.
The New York Times reported that:
There were five white extremist attacks in Australia from 2011 through 2017, all of which were attacks on mosques and Islamic centers.
Experts say the same broad motives are at play whether the target is a mosque in Perth or an asylum seekers’ shelter in Dresden or a synagogue in Pittsburgh. Attackers who identify as white, Christian and culturally European see an attack on their privileged position in the West by immigrants, Muslims and other religious and racial minorities.

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied again this week that the Austin bombings were terrorism, and Austin Chief of Police Brian Manley asked “That’s been the question all along: Is this terrorism? Is this hate-related?”
It is well known by now that “terrorism” is often used by American officials as a dog whistle to refer to acts of political violence carried out by Muslims or by minorities, and that typically white violence of a terroristic sort is characterized by other adjectives (the poor things often seem to be off their meds or at most involved in “hate crimes.”)
This linguistic hypocrisy has got to stop. If the character of the legislation is the problem, let’s change it. We know who some of the victims are, and that tells us a great deal.

Bess Kalb, a writer for “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” especially took issue with Fausset’s insistence that Hovater is polite. For example, in the same sentence that Fausset describes Hovater as a Nazi sympathizer, he immediately calls him “polite and low-key.” When writing of Hovater as a self-described “social media villain” who occasionally appears on alt-right podcasts, Fausset adds that “his Midwestern manners would please anyone’s mother.”

Both the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security issued a report in May that warned about the likelihood of far right groups carrying out future attacks, according to a report by Foreign Policy. The same report detailing this also pointed out that white supremacist groups had carried out more attacks over the past 16 years than any other domestic extremist group and “likely will continue to pose a threat of lethal violence over the next year.”
