Fresh update on "ku klux klan" discussed on Not Too Shabby

"He took this sort of attitude of the The talented tense Is it called is that the beach Boys are with up anyways, that if if that is blacks, you know just achieved enough. And we're enough of a model minority and behave themselves that they would eventually be given their due and later he became much more militant and much less willing to wait for progress. And a little later in the program whenever you're ready, I I'd like to read on described the three pages that for me where the crux of my committing myself to Robin smokes and story and how I imagine him making this step in his own life. Well, Sharon Riddle. Well, since you brought it up, why don't you do when you go right into that? Well, thank you very much. Allen. Don't mind if I do. Okay, so I didn't know much of anything about ropes, and I had to do lots and lots of research When I was honored with this job and this little stream going to read with, just based on a footnote in the most accepted academic book about Groups in which is by a professor Duberman. So it's 1928 public. Sin is in London in England with racism is a lot list. Ah, appalling than it was in the U. S. In fact, they Blamed US tourists for causing there to be more racist restrictions. And in England a few years later, so we begin and he's hanging out with the people like H G. Wells. And, um all these, you know, left wing English people that accepted him and and lifting members of parliament in 1928 Paul ropes and joined a demonstration of Welsh miners. In central London and we see Ah ah big, massive poor working people carrying science and Welsh What's going on here? Espero person, it's those Welsh miners again. They tried to form a union and the owners locked them out. And now we see them coming closer and we see Ah Union Union Union and that people are shouting and pull ropes and says, Shouldn't you labor MPs be doing something about that? Sorry, old chap. We keep our seats thanks to the English miners. And then proverbs and is moving to join the group of demonstrators. I'd like to check this out. Meet you for cocktails later. In the next Hannah. He's talking to Ah ah young Welsh miner type person and under the picket signs and with people in workers, caps and through the vessel itself. Many of the marchers spoke Welsh, but a student organizer equally answered pulse questions. The next time we see close ups of five miners standing together with their miner's hats, and their faces are almost completely blackened by called us and we see their their blue eyes shining through rather well, if I do say so myself, the Welsh miners with the blackest Wightman Paul had ever met. And then we see a scene of people working underground, including a young boy holding up the lantern and the men with pickaxes not only with the minor skins black and by Cole, but they did the hardest, most dangerous work for low wages. Their Children often went hungry and had no decent schools or medical care. The miners worked without safety gear and died Young and the next tunnel we see up or someone straight out of a thirties movie about Welsh miners, old lady waving goodbye is her husband and her youngest child is about 12 walking off to the pit head and we see in the distance coming down from the mountains and the little Villages and checks many, many other miners marching to their jobs. Their sons followed them into the minds. And now we see some real cliche rich capitalists with dark satanic mills in the background and dollar signs and pound signs and stuff behind him, and he's he's looking at an old fashioned ticker tape with a big smile on his face, and it's this throne like office chair. While the mine owners and their stockholders got Richard Day by day. Next panel, Um, Paul's back at his hotel room or is worth seeing and his wife his land is asleep and the moon that's kind of a recurring theme. I have this. This is that moon of destiny that shows up only in the most important panels. He's thinking as he looks out the window and and now we're seeing what's in his thoughts. And and in this thought we see across burning and mob of crude Klux Klan. People did going into the distance a huge number, but they're very small and what Paul thinking is would've behind the sub mobs of racism and the next time we see hands, manipulating the kind of puppet center on strings and the Ku Klux Klan people in their hoods in the crosses on their Cloaks are puppets that are being manipulated by these gloved hands. What is behind the mobs of racism, the thug mobs of racism, there were more powerful mob bosses, and then we see the faces of the mob bosses manipulating the puppet strings and you know they have the demonic ALS and the mustache is in the top hats. Gang lords who stirred up and took advantage of racism. And now we see this very, um this the close up of them eating these thinking these little bodies and eating the heads off. It's something, um Who should the Spanish painter that did Goya. It's a It's an image out of Ah, the Goya's black paintings but of the face is eating these these bodies as long as working people could be divided by fear and hatred. Blinded to their true enemies. The gang bosses which feast in peace on the lives of the poor. And and that's what I had to say. And that's what I still have to say it. It's never been more relevant than today..

Daryl Davis On Healing Hate with Friendship

"Today I have the most amazing guest for you. He is a man that really shows us the possibility of how to disparate sides can come together. His name is Daryl Davis and he's a black man who is convinced over two hundred Klu Klux Klan members to give up their robes by boldly and bravely walking in deep into their lives deep into the heart of the Ku Klux Klan, becoming friends with them and showing them his sheer humanity. Today. We're GONNA hear Darrell Story and learn how it is that he threw his empathy compassion insight in bravery has been able to really embrace a methodology that allows people from opposite sides to come together learn from another become friends heal and grow welcome Daryl. Pleasure. To be here with you. Thank you for having me. It is such a pleasure. You're such an extraordinary human being sorry to embarrass you. I am so excited to be able to share your story and your insights today. My pleasure and I hope you'll listeners will enjoy it. Thank you. Why don't you begin by telling us the back story to how and why you are able to penetrate the clan? Okay. I'm aged fifty, two currently and as a child, my parents were in the US foreign service. So I spent a lot of my formative years starting at the age of three. And on through elementary school traveling abroad living in various foreign countries, you go to a country for two years and you come back home here to the states, and then you're reassigned to another country. So back and forth back and forth during my formative years while overseas my classes in elementary school and things like that were filled with kids from all over the world. Anybody who had an embassy in those countries all of their children went to the same school. So my classmates were Nigeria Italian Russian Japanese French you name it they had an embassy there I was in school with their kids and to me that was the norm that was my first exposure to school. and. So when I would come back home at the end of the two year assignment, I would either be in all black schools. Black and white schools meaning the still segregated schools or the newly integrated ones like. Well I left. CHICAGO. Shortly after I was born but we will come back and we would be like in Washington DC or be in Massachusetts different places for a short time before being reassigned every other two years. So I was back I know I was for part of Second Grade I was back for a fourth grade. I was back in sixth grade and I was back here in eighth grade when I would come back the schools were either all black or black and white meeting still segregated. Or newly integrated, and there was not the amount of diversity in my classroom that I had overseas. So in one case, I was in fourth grade nine, hundred, sixty, eight, I was ten years old and I was one of two black children in the entire school myself in fourth grade and a little black girl in second grade. So consequently, all of my friends were white and many of my male friends were members of the local, Cub Scout Group and they invited me to join which I did. And during a March we had from Lexington Concord to commemorate the ride of a Paul Revere. Suddenly I was being pelted with soda pop bottles and cans and Rawson just debris from the street by just a small group of the white spectators on the sidewalk not everybody most people were cheering us in waving and all that kind of thing. But there were about maybe five people off to my right I remember there being a couple of kids or half a year or two older than myself and a couple of adults who are throwing ends, and when I first began getting hit and looked over and saw this my first thought was oh, those people over there don't like the scouts. That's how naive I was because I had never been to. Before and it wasn't until my scout leaders came rushing over and these were white people, my den mother, my cub leader, my troop master, and they huddled over me with their bodies and escorted me out of the danger. And I realized I was the only person being targeted because nobody else was getting this special protection and I, asked him, I, said, why am I being hit why they're doing this? I didn't do anything and all they would do this kind of shush me and rushing along telling me everything would be okay. Just keep moving. and. So they never answered the question. At the end of the day when I returned home my mother and father who would not at the parade. were, fixing, cleaning the UP, putting bandaids on me and ask me how do I fall down and get scraped up I told him I didn't fall down into the mud happened. And this was the first time in my life that I heard the word racism they explained what racism was to me. And my opinion old brain could not process this definition. It made no sense to me whatsoever I'd been around white people from all over the world at this point and none of them whether they were my fellow Americans my French friends, my Swedish friends, my Australian friends, none of them treated me like this. So my parents were making this up because people don't do things like that. And they assured me that not all white people do this but there is an element of some they do and I just cannot wrap my head around it. So I didn't believe them well about almost two months later. That same year nineteen, Sixty, eight. On April the fourth Martin Luther King was assassinated. And every major city in this country burned to the ground. All in the name of this new word I had learned call racism.

Death of John Lewis Fuels Movement to Rename Selma, Alabama's Edmund Pettus Bridge

"Says there is a call now from activist and politicians from both sides of the aisle to change the name of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, the site of the civil rights turning point where the late John Lewis and other civil rights leaders were beaten by state troopers on what became known as Bloody Sunday. Michael Star Hopkins is founder of the John Lewis Bridge Project. Bridge had been named after a former Confederate general and Ku Klux Klan leader honor. Edmund Pettus, by keeping his name on a bridge is antithetical to everything that this country should represent. So if we want to live up to our obligations live up, Tio who we say we are. Then we can start by removing his name and putting up the name of someone who has been a hero. Someone who has stood for What's best in this country, not what's worst and online petition had been created last month has already gathered for 100,000 signatures representative and civil rights leader John Lewis died Friday of pancreatic cancer.

The Mississippi state flag with the rebel battle standard in the upper left corner is the final state banner bearing the Confederate symbol to be removed in this country. Governor Tate Reeves signing a bill that retires the old 18 94 flag in favour of a new one. There will be designed by a commission with the only stipulation that it has to include the words in God, we trust the people of Mississippi. Black and white. Young and old can be proud of a banner that puts our faith front and center. Critics in the state where nearly 40% of the people are black, have said it was wrong to have a flag marked by the Confederacy, particularly since the Ku Klux Klan and other hate groups have used it as a symbol.

"Does. Does that matter? I, know! They're always shit, right? You all. Just let me later kind of a ship, party yeah. Like you oil home. Yeah. In two thousand, seventeen, a classified FBI terrorism policy guide was obtained by the intercept I don't know how they got this, but there are actually quite a few police f. b.. I. Agents who are real pissed about this problem in seemed to be vigorously leaking information to the press. In a section focused on how the bureau list individuals on a terrorism watch list. The authors note that quote again. The authors being the FBI. Domestic terrorism investigations focused on militia, extremists, white supremacist extremist and sovereign citizen. Extremists often have identified active links to law enforcement officers. The FBI goes on to note that they had to alter some of their policies when dealing with local law enforcement to account for the fact that so many of them are members of extremist groups. Is it too many. Oh! Yeah. We got like we've had to change how we interact with cops as the FDA because we're scared of you, motherfuckers. One of the one of the justifiable criticisms of this series. We're doing that. We're not really going to lean into the FBI much because I've kind of determined to focus on. What like cops like normal police law like the folks in the street, even though there is a very long well with discussing history of racism within the FBI. We talk about that quite a bit. In our two parter on the the the bastards who killed the Black Panthers. We'll get into it a bit next week. but we're gonNA focus really on like you know beat cops, essentially what leads leases in police departments just because? I can't. We can't do this for ten straight weeks. we? We both have other stuff we gotta deal with. The term ghosts skins is often used by white supremacists to refer to folks who basically hide their power level to gain respected jobs in society and advanced white supremacy law enforcement is for a particularly prized field for these ghosts skins, because it gives them virtually unchecked opportunities to do violence to non white people. One example of this would be a gang of officers within the Los Angeles County. Sheriff's department. Who in Nineteen ninety-one embarked on a campaign vandalism in the beating and torturing of Black Californians. Have you heard of the Lynnwood? Prop. Yes I? Have The lynnwood vikings were a violent neo Nazi gang that committed arson and murder and torture on Black Californians, and the gang was entirely made up of Los Angeles. County sheriff's officers was a Neo Nazi gang. That was all sheriff's officers. Let that sink in, let that sink in, and now think of the young man who was recently found hung to death in Palmdale. California yeah, and who was declared a suicide bomber. Los, Angeles Sheriff's Department Yeah and then the Los Angeles Sheriff's department was in a gunfight with his half brother where they killed him a couple of days later. Yes, and that it is reported that the Palmdale chunk of the WAAS Angeles Sheriff's department has what they call. The news called cliques within it you that. You might call them gangs. Maybe like the lynnwood Vikings because this keeps happening. Weird, because this is not history. Yeah yes, people need to know more about the Lynnwood. Vikings. Yeah so..

The, damn, cows and pigs understand that they just cows and pigs. Don't saying so to me. It's like if that's where your brain goes. I went on a rant. That's where your brain goes. That's why it's so mind boggling to this to these clans, people was just like I. Don't understand why. These black people keep asking to sit at our tables. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, and that's yeah. I mean like like the that is sort of that's. This is a really important thing to understand because Jim. We usually talk about Jim. Crow like white people usually talk about Jim. Chrome thinking back like how has talked about it like it was this terrible thing that happened. That was done to black people, which is was a crime, but also Jim Crow was is the foundation of law enforcement law enforcement in this country was still very much in flux and being formalized when Jim Crow started. It was really fucking new like the the first police department had only started in eighteen thirty eight Jim. Crow starts in eighteen, seventy seven, so US law enforcement in much, if not most of this country is is is founded. At this more or less than the same time as crew, which means that US law enforcement is founded in large part to keep the appliances in the eyes of the white. Elite separated from the white elite like that yeah. So. The important point. Yes so the second clan was also real popular in Oregon, maybe more popular in Oregon than it was anywhere else in the country and patient zero for the Oregon clan was the southern town of Medford which is. which is you go once Shakespeare in the park. Yeah, no, that's Ashland, which is. Right in Ashland is a very different city of it is but. Yet there's great teahouse. I Love I, actually like. Like Medford and Ashland are both like right next to each other in both in one of the prettiest parts of Oregon and this one of the prettiest places in the entire planet like all over the damn world. I haven't found anywhere. I found some places that are like up there with that part, Oregon, but I haven't found anything that I find pretty fucking gorgeous place, but also Medford has a real long history of straight up fascism. Right into the present day. The mayor of the town of Phoenix I think it was Phoenix, which is like right outside of Medford, basically suburb of Medford the mayor, two or three days ago, drove his car into a crowd of black lives. Matter protesters air the mayor. So The issues go continue yeah I. Miss I wish I could see my face, right? Mayor. So I'm Medford is where Luther Powell clinical sent by the national clan to establish the clan in Oregon set up the state's first KKK outpost. He gained initial recruits like pointing to the massive blading problem in nearby Jackson, county and making the case that the clan could help with law and order an a quote now from a paper by been Bruce Chapman University. Powell sold the clan potential followers, not as a brotherhood of bigotry, but as a beacon patriotism, cultural conservatism and social order, according to Powell clan was there to uphold traditional American society against the threat of the roaring twenties, specifically, Pal emphasized the Klan Support for the enforcement of prohibition. In a matter of weeks pal had sworn over a hundred men into the invisible empire, most of who were policemen, clan, expert and author. Author David Chalmers describes the clan under palace, being in the law and Order Business Luther, pals.

"Know our show sent you. You know what I love is being back from ads because it means that we can talk more about. The horrific history of racism and law, enforcement, terror and trauma. That's. Of My DNA and passed on generation Alie. Yes? Should they had an air horn there so starting in eighteen seventy. President. Grant began to lobby Congress to give him power to do something about the clan because again local law enforcement was actively aiding and abetting the cake. In Eighteen, seventy and eighteen, seventy one congress passed the enforcement acts. These protected the rights of black men to vote hold office and serve on juries and generally enjoy equal protection under the law. The Ku Klux Klan acts as they came to be known allowed President Grant to call up the army to order in order to. Break up the bands of disguised night marauders, and we're going to be like ninety nine percent critical of law enforcement on this podcast, but we gotta be fair when it's fair and federal law enforcement did a pretty decent job on breaking up the clan. This is this is where things get really complicated pro, because a lot of the credit for this goes to Amos Ackerman the attorney general of the United States at joined the Republican, Party after the civil war, and became one of the nation's most strenuous advocates black suffrage. He was like black. People have the right to vote and hold office and we will I. I will make sure we enforce this with fucking riflemen if we have to. Historian William S mcfeely said of Ackerman that quote no attorney general before, or since has been more vigorous in the prosecution of cases designed to protect the lives and rights of black Americans, and here's where things get complicated because before he was a republican before he was the attorney general. Amos Ackerman volunteered and fought in the confederate army. Equal.

"Yup, saying so these like give themselves up to say yeah. The neighborhood now for several days the white elites in Union county debated over this list of randomly arrested black men that they had and decided yet. Basically, we're trying to decide how many of them. Should. CAN WE PUNISH IN? How many of them can we spare without provoking a broader race? What riot among like because you know? There were a chunk of folks in power her like who understood like the most of these arrests are bullshit, but also we have to punish some black people more or less at random. Otherwise, the poor white folks in the county are going out on a race riot, so there's yeah. This big debate with the local elites and Alice Walker the head of a local. Local black militia gets arrested on his way to travel to the governor to warn him about what's happening in Union county now Walker hadn't been present at any of the events that had sparked this, but he was hated by the most racist of the local whites, because he was the organizer of a black militia, so local law enforcement decided that his death would go really far in calming. The white mob now Walker head supporters who were ready to rally to his defense armed, but again he. He told them not to. He was innocent and he was certain that a court case would bear out his innocence, but he never got the chance to actually do that on January. Fifth a huge gang of Ku Klux klansmen raided the Union County jail, an abducted five arrested black men who also happen to be prominent local Republicans Parsons writes quote. It is not possible to name any of the members of the costumed group, but because though not all of them in were on horseback and where costumed. costumed, we can imagine that. Many of the group's members were elites from the size of the group. Even if we accept on the a cautious estimate, it seems likely that they came from adjoining counties. There is a good deal of evidence that some of Fossett's friends were present in a leadership role at this event and one man who was later named by witnesses to the rate as a leader of the clan mob that have duct. All these black men was faucets. Good buddy sheriff rice rogers. So again. Yeah, the Shit. That's how they get into the jail. The sheriff is a clansman and he lets you share. Yeah, yeah and you know obviously what you're expecting happens to these black men tragic. Yeah, and I it's. It's possible even that like so there was one of the things that did happen when the KKK should up at this jail is. They struggled with a deputy to the keys. And it's heavily suspected by historians including Elaine, Parsons that this was all kind of an act and that it's likely that the deputy who struggled with the clan after giving up the keys put on Klan costume engaged in the raid after. Yeah I can tell you that. Hey, don't take key. Don't take my key look. I'm doing the right thing. And it is like a again. And this this this I highlight this story because specific stories are kind of useful in getting people emotionally involved, but this is one of this happened.

"First of all can like. I do every single time that I chat with fantastic folks like you. Thank you for your time. That is the one thing that you cannot get back and it is extremely valuable so thank you so much for taking some time out with us today. Thank you for taking the time and inviting me. The second thing I'd like to do is to ask you to tell us about yourself now when I say that what I mean is feel free to go all the way back to win it all started or you can start more current day. Tell us about sure. Well I guess going back to. When it all started I grew up in the nineteen sixties and was very much a part of all of the various political movements of that time and student movement in the Civil Rights Movement. I worked in the south as a civil rights worker in Selma and Montgomery in southern Alabama and south Georgia and then became very involved in social conflict and was actually at what you can think of as a professional conflict creator. And what then happened is I realized that if you wanted to achieve something like the right to sit in the lunch counter and be served demonstrations. Were a very good way of doing that. But if you wanted to change people's hearts and minds you had to dig deeper. And you had to have a different set of techniques you would adopt and so I had become a lawyer and was practicing constitutional law civil rights civil liberties law and then became a law professor. And after that I became a judge for the state of California in a couple of different administrative agencies and realize that what I was doing wasn't really very effective or very satisfying and discovered in nineteen eighty mediation conflict resolution and have been practicing full-time ever since now so I have now for the last. Forty Years Bene- fulltime mediator working with everything from divorcing couples families community disputes cross cultural disputes. Through litigated cases organizational disputes workplace disputes. I read several books on those and mediated hundreds and hundreds even thousands of those disputes. I also work internationally. I created an organization called mediators beyond borders. And we're working in a number of different countries right now so this has been an amazing journey. And what I've realized is that things that I believed in when I began are very much. A part of the process treating everybody with respect and dignity creating kind of equality in terms of who has the right to say what issues need to be addressed creating dialogues between people doing problem solving working together creating collaborative approaches to difficulties that people phase. That's the basic idea of conflict resolution. And what I basically do every day now came. We're GONNA take a step back a little bit and learn a little bit more about you. What's your favorite thing to do? My favorite thing to do is to work with people who are completely at odds with each other and find ways for them to discover something that is really quite wonderful about the other person something interesting something that they hadn't been able to realize before him some ability to appreciate the other person actually is to create conversations between people who haven't been able to talk to each other now going back to your background. You mentioned that you were involved in student rights and then civil rights does not normal. What made you want to be involved in that type of work? Well it isn't really normal. It wasn't normal at the time. It's a little difficult to describe today but we kind of can have a bit of a sense of it. Came from a rural place from a place that said that we are all human beings and nobody deserves to be treated this way. It came from a kind of fundamental belief in democracy that everybody should have the right to vote. Everybody should have the right to participate in deciding what is going to happen regarding the issues that impact their lives. Once I got started and became quite clear. The more that you read the more that you heard about what was happening in the world it became obvious that if you didn't act you were really retreating from a fundamental moral issue of our times and that even though it was scary to work in these environments we were attacked and had to face dogs and police officers in Ku Klux Klan and a lot of violence. The alternative of running away to me was scarier than the one facing up to a major challenge that everybody as We knew that if we didn't stand up to it something really important would be lost. I'm not sure exactly whether that answers your question. But that's kind of close to what I think. Most of us were feeling. That's really good. One thing that I wrote down was the alternative was scarier than the danger a lot of times when people even in business right you think about what if it doesn't work or what if it fails in? I know in my own journey. It was just that it was the thought the idea or the chance that I don't give this. A try is scarier to me than doing it in failing so I definitely get that obviously is not on her level of the work that you guys did but definitely get that principle. Do you see any parallels in today's culture to in the sixties or has. The conversation of the narrative been changed such that. We just don't talk about it as much because the issues are different. But it's not a lot different. Yeah the same meaning what these specific form of it was. You have the right to ride on a bus in an integrated group. Do you have the right to sit at a lunch counter? In order a meal you have the right to use a water fountain that says whites only on it. Those are the specific ways in which this would show. But the general the underlying issue was the issue of recognizing the value and importance of diversity recognizing value of importance of coming to terms with people and cultures and even personalities and political views. That are different from those that you have for yourself. And so that continues to this day and is a very fundamental. Almost I would say again a moral like question about how we treat each other and this is one of the reasons why we are divided really as a nation because we haven't yet gotten to the point that we are all in this together but that point is being made right now very powerful a by the corona virus. We are in fact all in this together. Everybody can get this disease. Everybody can die from it. Everybody is being impacted by all of the various measures that are taking place. And so there's a kind of a way in which we are being brought to realize that the little divisions that we create between them and US between if you're mailed with people who are female pure white people who are black Anglo Latino whatever. It might happen to be whoever you are. The entire world is basing this issue and we are stronger if we face it together and I think what we have to then realize is that this is only one of a number of global issues that no longer respect national boundaries. You can't deal with corona virus in one nation. Only art modern system of transportation means that it can go around the world in a matter of hours and if some group of people come down with it in one place other people are gonNA come down with it somewhere else. So we're being forced to look at this and I think there are other issues like that that we're being forced to look at by circumstance but the reality owes goes a deeper understanding that we can come to and my way of saying that in in all the conflicts that take place between them and us we have to realize there is no them. There's just us and the creation of the idea of a dam is something that has taken place inside of our heads out of fear out of frustration out of our own inner needs. It haven't been mad out of Hanker over some way that we've been treated but it's just a construct that we've created and it's one that isn't particularly useful and it's one that is incredibly damaging both to others and to ourselves

White Nationalism in the White House: Katie McHugh Kept Receipts

"It's no secret that members of the trump administration up to and including trump himself are parroting the views of white nationalist and white extremist groups. These organizations are tied into outright media outlets like Breitbart and others where they spread this propaganda to the masses. We're going to try something a little different today. I'll be joined by a guest. Co Host. Hossan Ahmad is an immigration attorney and anti white nationalist activist from Virginia. Hossan has been deeply involved in obtaining the archived writings of John. Panton one of the men. Behind the current white nationalist movement in America Hossan connected me to Katie McHugh. Katie is a former white nationalist. Who has renounced her views in his working. Hard to undo the damage. She did when she held them. She's a former staffer for Breitbart and other alt-right media where she was in constant correspondence with Stephen Miller at the trump white house. She's exposed those emails and the deep ties of Miller into the white nationalist movement in America voice box he's overlap between trump's message white nationalist ideology he has shown us that the majority of Americans support are sort of message. You know what yeah make. America great again fell the wall. Pick these people out. This is my country. This this all belongs to me. Trump demurred when asked whether he'd condemned supportive comments from former Ku Klux Klan. Leader David Duke. I have to look at the group I mean. I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know. The person is dead and nineteen injured after a speeding vehicle drove into a group of protesters. Your leader downtown Charlottesville very fine people on both sides so we just got a new batch of emails from Breitbart reporter Katya Q. The Southern Poverty Law Center has made public excerpts of emails sent by White House. Senior adviser. Stephen Miller was a key figure shaping immigration policy or president trump the email messages for fifty thousand sixteen. Show Miller support white nationalist website and ideologies. My name is Katie mccue. I've exposed eight far-right extremists in the past fifteen months by working with civil rights groups and legendary nonprofits. I'm very excited now. In the stage of my life to help the most vulnerable in society including people of Color immigrants those who practice Islamic faith and those who this car presidential administration opposes the mouse and seeks to punish through use of authoritarian policies. Sorry Not Sorry so katy you spent a bit of time in the alright. What is the difference if you can explain to US between the alright a white supremacy and white nationalism? What are some of the core beliefs that you're aware of as part of this movement? Well I can say I think we should begin with aristotle here. I don't want to sound pretentious but everything is on a trajectory this is also just basic calculus so one of the things. Aristotle spoke about was habit and one thing you witness with the outright because the media treated them as a truly humorous force that's just online and it's backing Donald Trump and it's young people. The fact is everything that they said. Ironically I'm making air quotes eventually became ironic so whenever people thought they were quote unquote trolling about saying the nineteenth amendment should be repealed and you had white supremacist media figure. Richard Spencer eventually meeting. No I don't believe women should have the right to vote all these memes and things you see on twitter and the way that these mobs were organized so much so that they became. It was almost like blunt force trauma when it came to harassment for media figures. They were not joking. And in the case too with someone like Stephen Miller who's one of the most powerful people in the US government especially when it comes to people who are not white. So who is Stephen Miller? And why is it so important that we understand his thinking? Stephen Miller is one of the closest advisers to president trump. He is the architect of trump's immigration policy and also has the president's ear on foreign policy matters. Stephen Miller for his entire career had anti immigrant. Leanings for some people philly with the alright because it's an amorphous group and doesn't have a membership roll with you. Know I mean. They viewed on white people and people who practice the Islamic faith as not only dangerous individuals but an existential threat to the country. And this does tie into eugenics which unfortunately America has a very dark history with eugenics Ray Science and a history which John drew from and help shape the anti immigrant agenda that has sought renewed energy from the emergence of the outright and renewed energy from the trump campaign and which we now see the full force turned against the most desperate vulnerable people in the world for punish purely because of their country of origin their ethnicity in the face that they practice kitty. You seem so articulate and passionate and human and when we paint these pictures are head of the other side we sort of create these villains. I think I WANNA be respectful for your privacy and safety but I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about how you got caught up in the movement so that we can have a better understanding as to how other people get caught up in the movement. Thank you for asking that because I think that everyone's path is different but buying could help explain some of the groundwork for other young people currently trapped in this. Who Don't quite know how to get out. The outright on the far-right are very much like a gang. You know there's a no snitching policy and I think that many many young people especially let's say trump does not win reelection in twenty twenty this year. A lot of young people are going to wonder. How do I get out of this? And how do I reconnect with other people again and have a healthy loving life full of good friendships? Good connections across backgrounds. So I will just say that I'm from Pennsylvania regular conservative town and I was raised like I think the joke is. You're born a lapsed Catholic. So that was my upbringing. Regular childhood must very nerdy was constantly reading and I was politically inclined. People always talk about two thousand four election. People were very excited about George W Bush. Because it's a Red County and two thousand eight of course with the banking crisis. Things got much more serious and of course the Iraq war still going on so I was chatting with one of my best friends. Her Dad and I was regular Republican fully supporting the Iraq war in in the war in Afghanistan and he said well. Why don't you read this person named Joe So brand? Joseph O'Brien was a former senior editor for national review. He was fired by William F Buckley because he could not control his anti-semitism. I ate him alive. Almost like a neurological virus and I'm eighteen. I had never met someone of poop practice. Jewish faith Jewish background nothing. I didn't understand anti-semitism and I was reading the Essay. That was recommended to me. Call the reluctant anarchists sing. How all government is evil in the constitution has already been so violated. We just need to go back to something. Like pre articles of confederation. Okay this is very important to understand. Is that there is a serious libertarian. Too Far right pipeline very serious and the far right of course is just steeped in. Eugenics steepen utterly discredited on Justifiable Race

Leo You're in the motherland right. I was in beautiful Israel. Why for my grandmother's one year as a memorial service? Yeah Had a chance to sit and study some Tomlin with my Gerke Hassett cousins. I dearly love and again you know. We're often kind of like you know funny about these matters here but every now and then I really do get the urge to be sincere when I sit with people who you would think we have absolutely nothing uncommon. But then you realize we are truly literally and metaphorically speaking family and when we get together that love that connection is completely puttable we have spent very a little time talking about the fact that you're related to Garros So how did these are first cousins of yourself. I Costa who went. Who Went Garrard in your family? My Grandmother's sisters Shula Married Girl Haas. Okay this is a particular sect of Hasidim. What is there? What's the What their vibe? Like what what makes Gerhardt's put it like this cafe after the memorial service writing grandmother. Someone was talking about a person who's become about Shuba who's found religion later in life and became a gir- haas acid and one of my cousins who is Haas it said really no one becomes Bolshevik becomes a hostage and I asked why not and my cousin said well. Because it's it's perfectly fine to be like a really religious Jew and not go all the way to where we are. Why would you ever do the house? We have no choice right. Mind way you ever come here. It's so interesting I don't have any Cassini blackadder's any Haredi in my family I have modern orthodox cousins in Israel whose parents my mother's first cousin hasn't her husband actually were leaders of the conservative movement in Israel but then there's not much of a conservative movement in Israel so if you grow up kind of conservative conservative acts like observant conservative but if you SORTA got a pick or are you going secular going modern Orthodox and they're you know they're orthodox but I don't know of anyone who's like got the hat and the beard. It's a great a crying. Shame you have Hasidic material written all over your basically and this is the thing that I I kind of realized this week. 'cause we were hanging we were talking and at some point. The conversation vacation got kind of really elevated. And then I thought you know moved to dial like three clicks to the right and we're talking about Cherry Garcia Right in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy right eating shrimps and the bus and the way to Monterrey. That's kind of the VIBE. Yeah really the essence of not just observing the strict strict interpretation of the law but really trying to find this motionless spiritual connect mystical court to it would love to. I WanNa hang with your gear custom in cousins or Greg. I had a slightly different experience but in its way no less mystical by the way while you're talking about Jerry Garcia on the bus. Were you on the conference call when I when we were all doing like a pre show Oh crap and Rebecca. My thirteen year old was in the car and she was saying Dad. Can you explain the the grateful dead to me which is a really deep question because you know I could say I mean. I think we'd been listening to uncle. John's John's Bander Casey Jones. Or something you've come on. Come on the playlist in the car and I could say well it's a it's a group from about nineteen sixty seven to nineteen. Ninety give is playing the debt side. But I could give you the Brownie right and you'll eat it thirty five minutes you'll understand everything about this man. I mean I. It's really hard to say because it's so much more than a band to six never made sense to me before I try them on. Meet cliche thing to say. One is a grateful dead. The second is tennis and attended attended. I'm like wait until you understand. 'em This is a great game. I just have to move my eleven right. I'm so into this now. I add my own mystical experience in Wia missing in Pennsylvania and a bunch of people came like they'd set up fifty chairs. Forty five of the chairs were were filled with super curious. Interesting people of all ages a young rabbi from Lebanon Pennsylvania brought his twenties and thirties. Group is like young singles of which there were five or six and they were super into it and they listen to the show and they wanted copies the book and it was magical. The Jewish Cultural Committee organizes their author series was three people. None of whom was is Jewish. Okay one of them was Nancy Russo. WHO's married to to Paul something? Jewish and Nancy is is Italian Catholic by upbringing. The main woman the director of cultural life for the Jewish nation is Amanda Hornberger. Whose husband is like something German Lutheran? She herself grew up. Congregational est she's on the vestry of her united the Church of Christ Congregational Church. I've always said that the congregation great out and there was a local librarian named John who grew up in Baltimore where he did sixteen years of Catholic school and then went off to college college. I mean literally none of these people even guys. Every time we meet a gentle on our show it turns out there a quarter Jewish. These people like zero Jew in them and yet they are keeping the Jewish heart beating y missing Pennsylvania. They were interested they were curious they're booking good authors. They're running great programs. The people they bring in Inter asking smart questions Jews by choice we had a convert. who showed up a Sherry came and said thank you for your your help on my journey? The podcast has been meaningful to me. gentile L. spouses of Jews. Why a missing? Pennsylvania was among the greatest afternoons of my life is how it ought to be how it ought to be. Whatever New York like fucking fucking A.? Y. A. Missing Pennsylvania it there. Are Jews starve reading. The News starts reading this and I want to see even today do an event at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square. And you'll get fifty fifty three people and I go to why missing and get forty and in town. That's probably like twelve thousand people get numbers you get. People are truly engaged truly engaged and so grateful full end their listeners and the ones who aren't listeners could become listeners I it was it was magical. Speaking of Magic Amazon is somehow making the Nazis disappear in news to the Jews. This this week we learned from the New York Times about that Amazon is and I quote quietly canceling its Nazis over the past eighteen months. The retailer has removed books by David. Duke a former the leader of the Ku Klux Klan as well as several titles by George Lincoln Rockwell founder of the American Nazi Party Amazon also prohibited volumes like the ruling elite the Zionist seizure of world power and and history of central banking and the enslavement of mankind from its virtual shelves. What are we think of Amazon? Taking strong hand Nazi literature out of its store. You're I'm not down with it. I'm not either tell you. Because here's the thing. Once you at a major conglomerates start making judgment calls about what is and is is not permissible for its captive audience to read. I think you're sorta screwed actually kind of a free speech absolutist in this way like yes I want everyone three David Duke Doc if only because once you do unless you're total frigging maniacal moron. You'd understand that this is absolute drivel. Actually want like free copies and like every this show be like. Hey guys here you go and try to get your way through mine com- If you can't get twelve pages into it. It's the most boring stuff you'll ever find. The beginning is funny. The middle sags the characterization gets gets a little thin toward the ad still never figured out how it ended. I never read it. No but really like do I really want Amazon making this call them. Why not the next up being like well you know This type of ideology is also quite offensive to us in history is in the type of thing we want people to read. You can imagine agenda that you can imagine where it goes very quickly to Jews in the Middle East or Zionist saying. We don't WanNa read you know the Hamas Charter and Palestinian activists saying we don't want to read. This spoke about the founding of Israel. I mean it's all of a sudden you've a lot of people who authentically believe that they are keeping genocidal literature out of the hands of other people saying what people can and cannot read and you add in the fact that Amazon really does have a kind of monopoly power. What we're reading? Yeah and find the these days of elsewhere.

The ones that killed six hundred thousand American Americans as part of the civil war they're the ones that did. It it's the Democrats how much of that do you hear the mainstream media the answer is none of it so now you have. Some misguided individuals who are racist white racist some twenty or thirty that desire to hold a. Protest outside the White House two thousand or more. Leftist show up and begin a mini riot. And the media covers it as if. The twenty are responsible the first amendment exist Not for comfortable speech to give absolute the first amendment is about thirty years ago a bunch of so-called Neo Nazis wanted. To March through Skokie Illinois which was Jewish, area your supreme court said give them the permit congress shall make no law you have to allow the protest take place I don't like it much I hate, to hear from skinheads Neo Nazis in the ku-klux-klan as? Much as I hate. From Harrington black lives matter elements of those groups are obviously murderers to speak to the. Fam- family of Heather hire the. Guy who did that should spend the rest of his life in jail? But on the other side of. The fence all the racial riots that took place or, riots, by, Democrats and democratically controlled areas egged on by black lives matter whoever gave it, the murder of police officers how much do you get that from the mainstream media the answer is none I think CNN's new, commemoration of the murder A five Dallas police officers plus two more in Baton Rouge on every July the seventh because that's when Mike Xavier Johnson specifically murdered Dallas police officers who wanted he. Wanted to kill all white people some Baltimore, there was a racist who travelled a couple of years go to New York City and just found officers Liu and Ramos eating lunch and NYPD Marc car he, was a black nationalism a black racism he killed two? And uniform cops now. That's awful all murder is awful terrible disgusting Democrats lynched about four thousand, blacks over about a seventy year, period largely in the south but, CNN whitewashes all that history doesn't fit doesn't fit therefore. They don't broadcast it the only? People who cared about what happened today was twenty Neo Nazis and CNN and. MSNBC who amplified them in an effort to tarnish Trump boost the. Democrats smear conservative media. And vent their contempt for the. Rest of, America that's the only reason they did it if they really cared objectively they, would had some coverage of the commemoration on July the seventh of the murderer five Dallas cops by black lives. Matter protesters, invited into the White House by Barack Hussein Obama what, would the media have said you think of Trump invited, those who, killed Heather higher into the White. House nineteen times the world, would end as. We know it Trump shouldn't it. Can't do that. And Obama shouldn't have. Done. It Get your calls coming up next line becomes..
