HOw Has White Supremecy Changed In The US

"V Colorado US presidential election campaign which draws to a merciful conclusion. Four days from now has been such a circus that events which would have defined. Other contests have been swiftly forgotten among those wells the thwarting earlier this month of an apparent plot by far right still styled militiamen to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the subsequent discovery of links between those alleged conspirators and of the white supremacist groups. This is a cohort which has been repeatedly. Nodded and winked at from the highest pulpit in the land. These last four years. What happens in the next four? Whatever happens on Tuesday well earlier I spoke to Kathleen, Balu Assistant Professor of US history at the University of Chicago and offer of bringing the war home, the white power movement and paramilitary America I began by asking Kathleen how the white supremacist movement has changed between the nine, thousand, nine hundred, and now there's two differences in what's happening in the nineteen eighties and forward one is at the violence. This movement is interested in carrying out is explicitly anti-state they want to overthrow the federal government. So this is one of the reasons that I think white nationalist as a term can be confusing the nation and white nationalism nineteen eighty-three is not the united. States, it is the Irian Nation and they're imagining a fundamental overthrow of the country and all of its democratic practices. So the other thing that's different is that this movement is bringing together a lot of different people in every way but race, it is an. Incredibly, diverse social movement. We're talking about a whole bunch of different sub sections of white supremacists thinking. So this is the first time in the nineteen eighties. The we see a unification between clansmen, neo-nazis skinheads, radical tax resisters, posse comitatus members, and then in the early nineteen nineties, we start to see militia members in these groups as well. Now, all of that is emblematic of a movement that has taken a page from earlier. American. History. So it it it borrows from the opportunism of earlier clan mobilizations, but it's Very different in its deadly intent and in the number of people is able to bring together in this new set of sort of violent belief systems. If you consider its car numbers and its current firepower, how is impossible to quantify how dangerous these movements are obviously, we had seen in recent weeks the apparent thwarting of a plot to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer Michigan but is that an it's a depressing thought but is that likely a straw in the wind will there be more of that sort of thing not. Only will there be more, but that story is already proving to be more than it looked at first glance. There were reports today that members of the base, which is an underground paramilitary wide power group have been arrested in connection to that plot. So already, we're seeing cross group organization and were seeing how this is working in network much the way it did in the nineteen eighties. So one of the most important things that people can do a to understand what this is an to combat it is simply To connect these stories with one another, it's very easy especially in a news cycle when people feel so buffeted with information at all times and sort of feel under attack by their own news feeds, I think it's very difficult to do the work of paying attention but it it's absolutely critical here because it's not just about the group that tried to kidnap Governor Whitman it's about the the connections between that group. The proud boy is Adam often in the base boo-boys, there are many of these groups on. The scene now now to your question about numbers, this is a very difficult one I'm not sure we even have an accurate headcount for the earlier movement, and that's where we have the the most consistent set of archival materials. As a historian. I'm very reluctant to make specific claims about the movement right now because I don't have my sources together yet and I won't have them for another ten or twenty years but what we know from reading the history and from reading the news. So in other words, what the? That history gives us can show us is that we have every reason to be concerned about further activity and escalating violence. This is a movement that is intent on mass casualty attacks that has used not just voter intimidation, but all kinds of other violent means over years and that has been organizing in this way quite effectively for decades. If not generations, this is not a new problem and it's not something that will go away quickly and the other thing is that this is a movement that is organized around sell style action much. Like a group in in radical Islamic terror would would work mix up that this group has been doing that since nineteen eighty-three, they're very, very good at it because they use cell style organization, there's not a great correlation between rising size of group membership lists and rising capacity for violent action. Because if you're trying to carry out an act of style terror, you're not interested in two thousand people who are going to come out on Saturday and March Down Main Street. You're interested in six people who are willing to detonate a bomb. So the difference is sometimes what we see is a shrinking of membership before an intense surge and violence I'm very concerned that that's where we are now and I think you know the people who do have archival information for the present day moment are saying the same thing. So I'm hearing this from people in the FBI people at Department of Homeland Security who have access to surveillance documents. I'm hearing this from people at the southern poverty law center and other watchdog groups who? Spend their time monitoring white power and militia TV, online, and most of hearing this from people who work in de radicalization trying to help people out of the movement everyone is sounding the alarm bell right now, everyone is running up the red flag and I think you know you don't have to listen to me. I'm just a historian, but I think everyone is calling everyone they can think of to to sort of try to get people to pay attention to this very grave situation. Hunch they're bringing an acceleration in the momentum of these groups because of if obviously radically different reasons the last two presidents you had the the fact of a black president of the United States, which clearly a number of people had a significant problem with and he's followed by a president who is to put it charitably equivocal in his condemnation of these groups. Yes. Absolutely and we're seeing a very clear relationship between political rhetoric and extremist action is that to price do you think can be put back in the tube night at all? That's a good metaphor for it. I usually say we can't on ring the bell. Exactly the problem right because you know if you take something like the president's remarks in the first debate about calling the proud boys to quote stand back and stand by even if you take the most generous interpretation of his remarks and say, okay, perhaps perhaps he was fed that group name and he doesn't know who they are perhaps he meant to tell them. To stand down even if we take all of that as given I think that there is a very real problem i. in the fact that it's not just the proud boys who heard that as a paramilitary call to readiness there are many other underground groups like the Bass Lake the guys in Michigan who heard that call as the call to action. And there's another problem of even in the case of activists who right now support the president. There's no indication that he has the power to call these people off. Once he has ignited away of violence as I said, this is a movement that has been expressly anti-government for many many years, and this is a strange thing about the United States that it has since the Vietnam war been. Very possible to hold the position in the United States of being anti government and pro president or pro-military or pro cop at the same time I mean we see Ronald Reagan making statements about how the government is the problem not the solution while he is the head of the government. So that sort of gymnastics act of balancing that since a fracture is not a problem for people here. So, there is a way that you can be pro trump right now and still be dedicated to violent overthrow of the state down the road or at some present moment and another note of caution is just the last time that this movement became very deadly setting off the string of events that led to the Oklahoma City bombing, and you know the the most horrific mass casualty attack for the United States between Pearl Harbor Nine Eleven. The last time that happened was not under a leftist administration it was under Reagan and it was because activists in this movement saw Reagan's perceived moderation as a sign. that. Political means could never deliver the kind of change that they wanted. Even Reagan was not offering what they wanted, which was reestablishment of Jim Crow Segregation or reinstatement of slavery or establishment of a white homeland things like this were much too radical for mainstream politics. So there's a real chance that even trump will hit align where it's too extreme for him. I mean even trump is not talking about reestablishing slavery and at that point I think there might be a wave of dissatisfied people if he's re-elected who are interested in mass casualty attacks just finally is there an aspect of this which is? Not just or perhaps beyond politics and beyond even race it strikes me just looking at the. Way in which the members of these movements present themselves, there's this strange cartoonish idea of masculinity in play. You know it is a very masculine movement, but it turns out that both in the earlier movement and today women are incredibly important to this activism You don't always see that in the public facing part of what they're doing. But in the period of my study, there's a whole bunch of women who are sort of forming the social network holds these people together and really makes possible violent action and they're doing everything from publishing their own newspapers to running their. Own Auxiliary groups to driving getaway cars and disguising people when they're on the Lam and even as they're doing all that they are saying things like I'm not an activist I'm not political I would never seek a leadership role because you know within this worldview out sweat good womanhood looks like but however you cut it women are incredibly important here and we would be foolish to think that those deep social interactions aren't part of what is sustaining this groundswell. I'm just you're just finally finally and feel free if you like to to refuse to gaze into a crystal ball but. How do you see this playing out in the next? Well, the next few weeks I if the polls are correct and Donald Trump does lose office on Tuesday. Well I, think everyone in the United States. Approaching all polls with a degree of caution from now on for. Immediate. Historical reasons. My concern here is that there is no mental picture that I can paint. There's no series of events that I can see that would make someone at this point with this set of social pressures with this worldview simply put down the weapons and go home and say, okay, well, we lost this round. It's time to go do some democratic change somewhere else. So my concern is that if trump is while if biden is elected, I think that these activists will not only be frustrated and rally look for mass casualty are opportunities if trump. Is elected I think that one ends game has to do with them, feeling dissatisfied and turning to mass casualty attacks in route to overthrowing the government. Again, as they've been doing for quite a long time, another route would be a continuation of sort of this Lincoln in an odd slash outright calling to arms line of rhetoric I mean there's a way that groups like this and other contexts have become strike forces and death squads for authoritarian regimes and there we can look to southern America and central, America for many examples of how that's happened. All all three of these are threats to Americans and to our democracy. So I think it is a very bleak time for people who pay attention to this particular part of the American political life. But was Kathleen Blues speaking to me earlier, Kathleen's book bring the war home the white power movement and paramilitary America is published by BELKNAP.

An entire community was burned to the ground in an incident of racist asymmetrical warfare. And most people have never even heard of it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. The community had been or technically still is Rosewood, Florida. It was settled by both black and white people twenty years before the civil war, but the Jim. Crow segregation in the Post Bellum decades put a clear divide into the community. The town was incorporated in eighteen seventy after it got a post office on a train stop and was named Rosewood for the Pink Cedars that were also the base of its economy. Residents worked in lumber, yards, mills, and even a pencil factory. Until the cedars had been overharvested, and the factories began to close. Most of the white residents moved to nearby sumner. But one couple John and Mary right who ran the general store? They were kind to their neighbors, and were known to Slip Candy to the black kids who hung out at the store, possibly because their own children had died young. The white flight continued into the nineteen twenties when Rose Woods population of about two hundred was entirely black plus the rights. The little hamlet got by just fine. Until New Year's Day nineteen twenty-three. Over in Sumner, a woman named Fanny Taylor woke her neighbors, saying a black man had broken into her house and attacked her. Rather than alert sheriff, her husband immediately gathered a group of men. Including clansmen who were in the area for a rally and a tracking dog. the, dog, lead them to the railroad tracks, which led to Rosewood. The mob, which would grow to be three hundred strong got it in their head that they were looking for a black man named Jesse Hunter who had escaped from a chain gang. The dog ran through the open door of a house and back out with that of wagon tracks. When the homeowner swore that no one else had been in his house, the mob tied him to the back of a car and dragged him down a dirt road. Then they tracked down the owner of the wagon whose tracks the dog sniffed. When he also claimed ignorance and innocence, the mob mutilated and killed him. The mob came to the House of Sarah carrier the Taylor's laundries. Two dozen people most of them. Children were hiding inside having heard what was going on already driven out of their homes by fear. For whatever reason the mob was sure that carrier was hiding Jesse Hunter. They fired on the House and carrier. Sons returned fire. When it was over both Sarah and her son Sylvester carrier had been fatally shot, though Sylvester had managed to kill two of their assailants. Had, anyone bothered to talk to Sarah carrier about Fannie, Taylor. She would have been able to tell them about Taylor's lover. Her white lover who she had been with before the attack. As, the mob kicked in the front door of the carrier house, the people hiding inside fled out the back door to the relative safety of the nearby. Swampy Woods. Not. All were able to get away though. Carriers, other son James was found by the mob who reportedly made him dig his own grave before killing him. The newspapers of the nearby towns caught wind of what was happening. They ran exaggerated. Retailing's of the siege of the carrier House and blatantly false reports of roving bands of armed black citizens. Seeing that even more white men poured into Rosewood believing that a race war had broken out. Apparently it's only a race war when the race you're targeting fights back. The manhunt and terror campaign wasn't confined to that single night, but stretched on for nearly a week.

A look at Fred C. Trump's view of the world

"The pioneers important ship with Rolex when Donald Trump was announcing his candidacy for presidency. He said the American dream is dead and talked about how he was going to put America first now. Both of those phrases would certainly have been familiar to Fred. See Trump indeed so Frederick Chris trump to give him his full name. That was a family name. But it's hard not to enjoy the laugh. He who was of course. Trump's MM father now people have slightly misread. The sometimes in assumed that because Fred trump was an adult in the twenty s that he must have been trump's grandfather and in fact reviews of my book talked about Fred Trump as his grandfather. No no no the point is he's his father. We forget and I think to our peril first of all how old Donald Trump is as. He was born in Nineteen forty-six and secondly that he was the son of a much older father. So Fred See. Trump actually was a young man in this era that I'm talking about in the twenty s and so the world that he inhabited was this America. First `isolation xenophobic eugenicist world. Like Tom Buchanan Bannon. That took that stuff for granted it was a highly racist society and even the more progressive people were of course very very racist and many of their attitudes kids and Fred trump raised donald trump. You know in the forties in my view to with this worldview and basically what I'm saying the book is the apple doesn't fall Oliver far from the tree and trump has said over and over again how much he admires his father how much he adheres to his father's worldview most importantly in my live you the thing he said over and over and over again is that he is a believer in eugenics. Now trump himself never remembers the word eugenics. But that's neither here nor there. The attitudes that he's espousing he says over and over again. He's given dozens of interviews. You easy to find just Google Donald Trump and eugenics and you see him on video for twenty years thirty thirty years saying that. He's a believer in what he calls the gene theory. or He's a believer in jeans. He believes in what he thinks of as the racehorse theory of genes. which is that when you get a superior type person and you marry that superior type person to another superior type person you get superior type people that is eugenicist and that is very clearly what he believes? Leaves end in Fred. Trump's world that idea was America first and you can place for trump historically right at the heart of does indeed so in one thousand nine twenty seven it was actually just at the peak of America first political traction it was just starting to lose credibility Partly because of the way that it had been monetize so it was getting associated with corruption. Both by the clan in with a very corrupt Chicago mayor from my hometown the most corrupt city in America. A A guy called big Bill Thompson. Who was using America first to try to? It was a money making scheme. Also some things never change anyway so it was about to kind of really lose credence but at the peak of it in nineteen twenty seven in Queens which of course is where Donald trump would eventually grow up. It's where Fred trump was already living at that point and there was a memorial Oriole Day parade in May nineteen twenty seven at which the clan controversial had been permitted to March. They were given a permit now. This incident has since trump's election and been aronie ASLI described as Klan Rally and. I think it's important that we note the distinction. It was a Memorial Day parade at which the veterans were marching and the Red Cross was marching and children were marching and there were twenty thousand spectators. Not because they wanted to support the clan but because they were there for national parade but the Klan had as I say controversially been given permission mission to March in this parade as long as they weren't roped was what the police told them and it was a first amendment issue again about the right to assemble in the right to free speech. And so you can see why they said that they could. But they couldn't be hooded and gowned and some of them decided to be hooded and gown and scuffles broke out among the twenty thousand spectators. Because some actually objected to it as hate speech just as we would today some defended on the basis of freedom of speech just as people would today so these kind of scuffles broke out and it turned into a full blown riot. Twenty thousand people fighting over the clan in Queens and out of that twenty thousand six men were arrested five of whom self identified the police reports as clansmen and the sixth was Fred see trump. Now that is not proof that Fred trump was clansman and again some people have said arrests shows that he was. I don't think that does I don't think we can make quite that step. But it is remarkable to me that out of twenty thousand people the only six were arrested five of clansmen and one of them was trump. And what I do say in the book is that and I firmly believe this. Is that whatever we think Fred. Trump's reasons for being there might have been. He was not there to protest the clan and we know that because of his later record on race relations he was so racist when he started his property property development in the nineteen fifties which by the way he got from government loans. So all of these guys who you know they hate government handouts. But that's how Fred trump got his start was from a government handout and there was some kind of it is indeed it was he was hauled up before Congressional Committee to admit that he wildly overstated the cost of his loans which is in the book some might call fraud so he defrauded the government went to get handouts and then these and then his son is telling us that handouts are terrible and nobody should have handouts and out of this. He built these tenements. He built these housing projects in the New York area in Brooklyn Brooklyn and Queens and his policies for renting to tenants in these housing projects. Were so racist that Woodie Guthrie in the nineteen fifties wrote a song about how racist it was because he lived in one of them. It's called Almond trump. And it's about how racist Fred trump was and you have to be racist in the fifties to get people's attention for our racist assist. You are by one thousand nine hundred ninety three which was the year that Donald Trump took over the trump property empire from his father. They were sued by the Nixon Administration. Restauration for racial discrimination. And again you know the Nixon administration was not going out of its way to sue over racial discrimination it had to be so gratuitous for the Nixon administration to go after them and then of course in the case of Donald there are things like the central park five the five black men wrongly accused of raping a woman in Central Park. He called for the death penalty. Not with them. They were totally exonerated by DNA. He has never apologized. He has never said that he still calls it. A miscarriage of justice and it was a miscarriage of justice but not in the way that he thinks. So what I say is that although we cannot say that Fred trump was a card carrying member of the KKK. He was arrested with five of them and nothing that he ever did in the rest of his misbegotten life makes me think that he was there to argue against the clamp. Do you think a trump. Donald trump has a full understanding branding given how ignorant and he missed. His supporters appears to be an understanding of the origin of these phrases. And can they be reinterpreted in a positive way so first of all. I think that be the best way to understand. This is that it's like it's a world view that he grew up with. He's profoundly racist. We have so much evidence to see. How racist he is does? Does he know the detailed history of this. Of course not in fact historians don't know that detailed history of this Ri- wouldn't have written the book so nobody knows it but the fact that America first has these meanings meanings is definitely not lost to history and the KKK kept it alive underground. And all of these Neo Nazi groups and right wing groups kept this phrase alive and there's lots of evidence at that they would have rallies in the sixties and say it's an America first rally you can find the flyers and handbills and stuff. So there's lots of ephemeral evidence over the years that they kept this phrase alive and now they're using it on Neo Nazi message boards. It's on the daily stormer on storm. Front it's on their websites. So these guys have always used that phrase and when and David Duke who of course is the the most senior member of the KKK in America when he endorsed Donald Trump. He did so using that phrase he said he stands for what I've always stood for. He stands for America. Erica I it is a racist dog whistle and certainly trump's advisors know that Steve Bannon does read history. And Steve. Bannon doesn't know this Steve. Bannon also resuscitated facilitated a phrase called economic nationalism which he talks about all the time and most people don't realize that economic nationalism was part of the America first platform in Nineteen Nineteen and nineteen twenty and it was to keep America out of the League of nations to keep it from signing the treaty of Versailles because Europe was a cabal of overlords who wanted to create a global economy and they were going to make America a vassal state. which should sound pretty familiar? And it's not only about the ways that has shaped American political debates but of course it sounds an awful lot like the way that people talk about Brexit and as we know Bannon has been closely involved Cambridge analytica which he was on the board of has been closely involved with both of these campaigns and and his idea of economic nationalism is a hundred year old America first agenda. He did not pluck that phrase out of the air. Stephen Miller who remains trump's senior senior advisor he's the author of the policy that separating immigrant families at the southern border. He was also clearly. The author of the speech that trump gave in the oval office when he argued for his wall so he Stephen Miller also knows this stuff and the other phrase that was really associated with America. I which which I spent a lot of time explaining in the book was one hundred percent American which was another code and Stephen Miller on his high school yearbook page that he was one hundred percent American. So these guys do know these codes and I don't know that Donald Trump understands all of this history and understands how all of it intersects but he knows that it all supports his basic world view which is a eugenicist assist world view and that is the one that he learned from his father who also knew that this stuff was America first and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he had grown up in the fifties hearing his father. Talk about America. I that wouldn't surprise me one little bit. So is the American dream dead and do we revive it by putting America first in my view is that we shouldn't try it's like saying. Can we resuscitate tate. Heil Hitler will you could. But why would you want to. I want to do the opposite which is to discredited with.

And I have a friend who has a world renowned neurosurgeon a brain surgeon who explained to me that Joe Biden. Where did you see Joe Biden's behavior that it's perfectly typical of people that have had brain surgery surgery on their brains because when you go in to repair a rupture in a brain, it's quite dramatic actually have to cut cutting drill the skull and peel back the flesh, and then you got in there, but you have to use these clamps cut off flow of blood to the area of the brain that then needs to be repaired. And for every second that the flow blood to that area of the brain is cut off. There is damaged brain cells are dying at a fairly rapid rate. There are many brands cells, but they're dying at a rapid rate. And Joe Biden has experienced that kind of, you know, God bless him that open brain surgery twice, and when they clamp off the flow blood to the brain for periods of time. It causes a type of brain damage that leads to.

"Accountable here to help us work through these questions are Jamal buoy opinion columnist for the New York Times and Joan Walsh, the national affairs correspondent for the nation at first especially when governor Northam admitted that it was him or one of those men perhaps the black face person or the clansman which might be worse. Not sure it seemed obvious that he had to go. And also, it seemed like a kind of restorative Justice that an African American Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax would step up. It seemed you know, I don't wanna say anything's, easy and ending someone's political career requires a lot of deliberation. And and a certain sense of fairness, but I pretty quickly got there. And then the allegations about Lieutenant governor began to come out, and it became more. Complicated. I I'm not sure it should be. But I think for most people watching this unfold. It suddenly became more of a crisis Jamal. What about you? As you watch this unfold. I guess watching this unfold, especially as a Virginian living in Virginia. I sort of find the entire situation a little funny. The past ten years governorship is not been scandal. Free in Virginia. Bob McDonnell, the Republican governor before a governor Terry McAuliffe, quite famously had a corruption scandal, and I should've accustomed to a big scandal involving the governor. But then to see this sort of like metastasized to include all three statewide elected officials, of course, the allegations against Justin Fairfax are over different kinds of different category. But to watch the salt grow, and and metastasized and should have put the Virginia Democratic Party in a very unusual situation, essentially having to decide whether it's going to risk handing over state power to the GOP not even two years after winning statewide victory. It's just calf can ask indus- a little funny to me. Well, and that is part of the Kafka esque piece of this journal that it's Democrats who were asking for the governor to step down. This wasn't Republicans. Who were sounding the first alarms on this. These were Democrats willing to say, yes, we have these standards. We're going to hold true to them. Right. And I think there's been some conversation here and there about whether or not the standards Democrats have put forward are too strict. But I don't think they are. I think it's it's very recent in American history, and certainly in American political history that there's been anything like eight zero tolerance policy for racism in either party. And I think an attempt to make that work is quite admirable. The great question though, in this case is what happened when that policy begin to conflict with sort of larger partisan goals and puts you in danger of essentially, obliterating you've made June. I want to turn to the Justin. Fairfax. The situation, and I was really taken by something you wrote about you said that you talked to three black women who asked you. Why feminists white feminist seem to be holding back on Justin? Fairfax when they were so quick to believe, Dr Ford of the judge Cavanaugh. Can you help us unpack all of that? Sure. I mean, I think, you know, the New York Times recently had a story that had a slightly different. Take obviously, the black community is not monolithic black women are not monolithic at a certain point early on. There was a kind of protectiveness of Justin Fairfax. And there remains to some extent some of that. And I think certainly as a white feminist. I was concerned, and I was certainly not going to be one of the first people to say, oh, you know, he he has to go. But then there is, you know, there's a strong and outspoken group of black women. There's a delegate that is. I spoke to a really wonderful impressive. Progressive woman who was elected in two thousand seventeen Jennifer Carol royse. She posed the question to me directly. She was concerned that there was a double standard and that women were pausing. So it's very very fraught. Do you know, how do you see this? Did you see that? There is a double standard or that people were trying to prioritize in their mind, which of these things they needed to be more outraged or they needed to put more judgment onto. I do think there's an element of that. Especially as things began to kind of come down in the cascade. I I think that. Extent that a census should have consensus here. It's that Marquette savings admitted use of blackface in a costume is probably the least offensive least bad and most forgivable of the offenses. And I've noticed and I'm sure you both have noticed that there. Really haven't been strong calls for herring to resign. I think both reflects the partisan situation not wanting to relinquish control of all three statewide offices. But also a sense that of these things about what at least forgivable inhering seems to have taken steps to sort of appeal to and ask forgiveness from black lawmakers and white voters. So there's that. Looking at the Justin Fairfax situation, I'm inclined to save it. He should step down. He should resign serious accusations. But I sense among Virginia Democrats, a real honest concern about the I hate the word, but the optics of all this, which is that at the end whenever this ends. It may be the case at the two lawmakers who survive are the two white men in the one who has to go is the black man and even if Fairfax's offense or alleged defense justifies his resignation. It's still I think to a lot of people looks really iffy. And I think to be sent that there's stasis in this situation that nothing at a point where nothing really moving in our direction. I think you can attribute some of that state's is just to the fact that the racial dynamics here, look, very, bad and Joan, let's. I kinda dig into that too about from your perspective writing as a feminist and all of this seeing the ways in which congress has or hasn't dealt with other accusations of sexual harassment or assault, and I'm thinking in particular of Al Franken who did step down. But there's been a tremendous amount of blowback from many liberals, many liberal women who believed that he was recruited. Yeah. I think that's a real problem. Amy. And you know, we saw with the Franken situation that was very painful to me. I really admired him still admire him in many ways for many of the things he's done. He was for Democrats progressives in particular, a great Senator. But you know, when you have six seven eight allegations, I it just becomes impossible. But I I would say procedurally, and this is even more true in Virginia. There was no obvious rapid way to deal with. The Franken issue. He wanted a committee investigation. There are oversight committee's. There are ways it could have happened. It would have taken a long time. And so while I don't think we should be throwing people in the barrel to use a phrase. There's gotta be something that's more rapid and reliable. So that both sides the accuser, and the accused feel there some kind of process that is fair now in Virginia there really isn't even an oversight committee that could oversee the Fairfax allegations he's asking for an FBI investigation. That's not quite right. They'd have to set up a special commission. I mean, it can be done. I don't wanna say it can't be done. But there's I think that we've lagged a, you know, as we've had to deal with this increasingly, and it's really great that. We're listening to women we have lagged in setting up the processes for making them heard and also giving. Their accusers their day to be heard as well. And so the other complication here, I mean Virginia is just fascinating in so many ways the legislature only works for two months. So they're leaving session at the end of February certainly things could be extended. There are ways to do this. But they are very untested people. Don't know what to do. So that's I think you're right that we've become very sensitive to this. And that's great. But we all the years that we spent not really caring.

"Of the clansmen and the person in black face. In the medical yearbook. Of the now governor north. And those were his pages. He claims now that neither one of those him and a gentleman has now come forward and said that he was with north admit that party and that north and was actually dressed as a lawyer and a three piece suit. And so this gentleman also. Black Hawk Down. Apparently, he was one of the one of the soldiers involved in that. So he's to me credible person. But that said he then later says north and that he dressed in black face to do a Michael Jackson. Dance or competition. And here's the problem. Here's the problem. We've made a hell of a lot of progress when it comes to race despite the endless allegations of racism. By the left against people with whom they disagree. Many of whom if not most of them are not racist. And this is what you resent. And this is what I resent. I think in the future. I talk about it a lot fifty years one hundred years from now. And I think about it a lot maybe a thousand years from now. I think there'll be a lot of writing and talking about how the United States really did turn the corner on racist. I really do. You look at this country. Look at it size. I read somewhere that sixty seven percent of the people in this country. Our white. I'm not exactly sure what that means. Not exactly sure how they count people. But this is important particularly to the left and the government. It's not something. I would even be counting. And the number shrinking shrinking shrinking shrinking as a result of birth rates and immigration. As a result of birth rates and immigration. So I feel like we really have and continue to turn a corner on this issue of racism. And they'll always be examples of it. Just like, I think we're magnificent country, but there's always examples of murder and rape and so forth, which are horrific. But I do not believe there systemic racism in this country. And people talk with their feet. I don't see minorities leaving the country, and I see minorities majorities of other countries minorities in this country coming into this country. Now, what does that tell you? Put aside the professors and the cable anchors and all the rest. That speaks for itself. Does it not? But we're turning another corner you see, and that's on this issue of respect for human life. In this. We are hugely regressing. Hugely regressive. Fifty from one hundred years from now, they're gonna think we were barbaric, maybe not. But some day one day. That's how we will be viewed. And rightly so. And so will the supreme court for that matter and all these federal courts that continued to assist the radicals in this country and pushing the edge of the envelope. And as we discussed last week. And as has been discussed all weekend and into today to I tell you listen to our show. You can see. With a moral compasses. The calls by the Democrats running for president others in congress or governor's or others on TV. Is for north him to resign because of the yearbook. Fine by me. But not one of these people have told him to resign. Because of infanticide. Now one. I one. If you're not gonna treat our babies with respect, do you think they have respect for you? I'm quite serious about this. I hear all the yelling on cable TV back and forth. Which is why I do a different kind of shows long as I decided to do it. I see all the bickering over nonsense. I'm not saying, this is not sense. But there's a lot of bickering over nonsense. I see all the name calling. That's okay. But not if you lose sight of humanity humanities, not about a government program. Humanities not about a ninety percent tax humanities not about stealing. Somebody's wealth. That's not humanity. It's insanity. Insanity. Now, the Lieutenant governor of Virginia is an African American. And he's in line should the carry governor Virginia resigned or whatever. It's a very odd story swirling around him. This is from FOX Alex Pappas, Brooke Syngman. Washington Post pushes back on Justin. Fairfax Lieutenant governor his denial of sexual assault claim publishes graphic details. Graphic new details are emerging about a newly revealed allegation of sexual assault against Virginia. Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax as the Washington Post pushes back against Fairfax's claim that the newspaper found serious problems with the original accusation wanted initially opted, not to publish the account. The post did not find significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegations. As the Fairfax statement incorrectly said the Washington Post said any story published Monday sharply disputing the Lieutenant governor statement. The allegation against Fairfax. At democrat first surfaced on the website, big league, politics, the same right wing political, Bob, blah, why is this right wing? Can't they just say conservative? Is this an an effort to degrade or diminish? The report the same conservative blog that published the now infamous yearbook with the photo showing someone in black face and someone in the KKK costume on Virginia. Governor Ralph north Adams nineteen Eighty-four yearbook page Fairfax has vehemently denied the accusation. And in a pre dawn denial Monday. He he tweeted his statement. By the way, president of the United States has certainly made Twitter the place where politicians go to speak to. Fairfax said that the accuser woman I approached the Washington Post over a year ago. Prior to Fairfax is inauguration in two thousand eighteen. In this statement, he said the post carefully investigated the claim for several months after being presented with facts consistent with the Lieutenant governor's denial. The allegation the absence of any evidence. Corroborating the allegation and significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegation the post made the considered decision not to publish the story. But in its Monday store, the Washington Post acknowledged investigating the claims and deciding not to publish, but it said the Fairfax statement incorrectly. Claim the paper found significant red flags and inconsistencies with the allegations. Fairfax and the woman told different versions of what happened in the hotel room with no one else present the paper set, the Washington Post could not find anyone who could corroborate either version. I would have a question for Mr.. Fairfax. What was your position on the Brett cabinet confirmation? Now, some of written wisely. That the media didn't much give a damn about. Corroborating anything when it came to break Cavanaugh, and that is absolutely true. And that's a very important point. But I'm asking Mr. Fairfax, Lieutenant governor Virginia what was your position? No due process. That's what the Democrats said. No presumption of innocence. That's what the Democrats said, you think sir, you could get confirmed for federal judgeship. No. Not on those standards, you're guilty as accused and no process. And ironically, when it comes to the governor, we're back to a yearbook, aren't we? Got to believe it's in the yearbook not little jokes and statements taken out of context by this this full from Rhode Island. White House Senator White House. Now, there's a picture. Say. The Washington Post didn't name the accuser, but the papers said Fairfax and the woman met I in Boston at the two thousand four democratic national convention Washington Post goes further the woman described a sexual encounter that began with consensual kissing and ended with a forced act that left her crying and shaking the Washington Post reported. She said Fairfax guided her to the bedroom, and then whatever. So now, the Washington Post is putting out the information. This would be the same Washington Post that no doubt, Mr. producer could you find if they endorse mister Fairfax for Lieutenant governor, I know the endorsed north him for governor. Seems to me if these major news outlets are going to use their opinion and editorial pages to try and influence the electorate that they have some responsibility too. More.
