Ever since Antifa and the neo-Nazis have started squaring off (two of the most loathsome groups on the face of the planet, add Black Lives Matter for a trifecta), the mainstream media and Progressive-Left have been trying to substitute the "nationalist" for "supremacist." The two are not interchangeable.
It's a tactic of the Progressive movement dating all the way back to its genesis. They have been redefining the meanings of words and subtlely injecting inappropriate words into labels so as to change the meanings to suit their goals.
Nationalist, by traditional definition, is someone who is fighting for national independence, or a strong national government. In other words, a nationalist is someone who believes in his/her country; someone who is patriotic.
A supremacist, on the other hand, is quite different. A supremacist is someone a person who believes in or actively advocates the supremacy of a particular group, especially a racial group.
So, why do the mainstream media and Progressive/Democrat politicians and activists believe that the two words can be interchangeable? Nary a day goes by when we aren't told by some opportunistic politician or disingenuous talking head that neo-Nazis are "white nationalists." Of course, they are not, they are "white supremacists."
The reason that Leftists in politics and the media are trying to stain the word "nationalist" is two-fold. First, they want to kill the word. And second they want to tamp down any patriotic resurgence in the population like when Reagan came to office.
By co-opting the definition of the word, Progressives seek to marry it to the darkness of the neo-Nazi movement so the majority of the population was stigmatized by the word; repulsed by it.
The last thing Progressives want is for a resurgence of patriotism to surface. With Trump's America First agenda, a growing sense of patriotism -- and an understanding that a strong and prosperous United States is great for the entirety of the free world, would negate the whole of Barack Obama's eight years of Progressive rule and achievement.
Progressives truly thought that the Obama presidency presented the opportunity to bring the ball over the goal line; to ultimately transform the United States from a Constitutional Republic to a Socialist Democracy controlled by oligarchs. A resurgence of patriotism (read: nationalism) would kill this eight year effort.
This is just another piece of evidence that proves the mainstream media is in the pocket of the Progressive Left, and another reason why true Americans, patriotic Americans -- American Nationalists -- need to be very cautious about where they consume their information. Lord knows politicians can't be trusted.
Have you heard the name Linda Sarsour? If you have a grimace probably just came over your face. Sarsour is one of the most disingenuous political parasites of modern times. Now, this opportunistic fraud is diverting funds from the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Sarsour was one of the minor players in organizing the vagina-hat march against Donald Trump in the early days of his presidency. This was the march with Madonna saying she often thinks about blowing up the White House (interesting since the eight years before Trump saw the White House occupied by Barack Obama) and Ashley Judd spewing rhetoric that should have mandated her a trip to a psychiatrist. Sarsour glommed on to the event as is she had given birth to it. She did not.
Sarsour is vehemently anti-Israel and foaming-at-the-mouth pro-Palestinian. She is a proponent of advancing Sharia Law into the West. She injected Muslim activism into the Ferguson issue and rebuked then-President Obama who reluctantly called on the Muslim community to denounce those who executed the attacks in San Bernardino, California; attacks perpetrated by Islamofascists. She has, since her showboating at the vagina-hat march, attached her self, opportunistically, to the Black Lives Matter movement, the immigration issue, the Confederate statue issue, you name it, if it's a Progressive anti-American cause, this charlatan is there.
Now, Legal Insurrection reports that in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, this fraud is misdirecting people on social media who want to help the flood victims. In a tweet, Sansour directs potential donors to political action groups (PACs) with which she is affiliated. These are community organizing PACs dedicated to Progressive social justice initiatives. They have absolutely nothing to do with providing much needed financial aid to victims of Hurricane Harvey; people who need - in the immediate - food, clothing, water, emergency shelter, etc.
This is why the overwhelming majority of thinking Americans despise the Progressive-Left. They are an ideological gaggle of deceivers who prey on people's emotions even as they defraud those they have manipulated, both intellectually and monetarily.
Sarsour, a typical Progressive-Left activist, is beneath contempt for her dishonesty. Even in Allah's afterlife, this woman is going to burn.
Now comes absolutely stunning news that the FBI doesn't believe that there is significant "interest" in the Hillary Clinton email scandal. This comes as they deny a FOIA request for all relevant correspondence between the FBI, the State Department, DoJ and Hillary Clinton -- among others -- with regard to Hillary Clinton's use of an unsecured server in the transmission of classified government information.
This is absolutely criminal, and from the top law enforcement agency in the country! To believe that there is no interest in the Clinton email scandal is to believe that the Earth is flat and the moon is made of cheese. In fact, the Clinton email scandal literally determined the course of the 2016 General Election!
No, this "determination" is yet another example of the politicization of government agencies that are supposed to be blind to politics. It started under the Clinton administration with the placement of loyal Clintonites and Democrats in mid-level supervisory positions in agencies like the FBI and DoJ; placements that guaranteed that any investigation the Clintons didn't want to see go anywhere wouldn't.
The first time we saw this stonewalling from the DoJ was in the aftermath of Hillary Clinton's run for the Senate in 2000. The fundraising efforts for her campaign literally perpetrated the biggest violation of campaign finance laws our country has ever seen. But mid-level cronies appointed and placed during Bill Clinton's tenure slow-walked, stonewalled and eventually killed the investigations into the campaign finance fraud. This is covered in the book The Fraudulent Senator.
Since then, the Clintons have been so emboldened by their ability to skirt the law - specifically because of these mid-level placements in the DoJ and FBI (who knows, maybe the IRS as well - that they do, literally, anything they want without fear of retribution.
Even more stunning in all of this is that the media - both liberal and conservative - are ho-hum about the FBI's determination. True and real journalists would be screaming from the mountain tops about this real collusion; this aiding and abetting of a crime by the very institution that should be putting handcuffs on Hillary Clinton. Honest media is dead. Long live the ratings whores of the mainstream media.
There is a petition that, should it hit 100,000 signatures before the end of September, would force the White House to address this issue. Honestly, that President Trump - who famously said he was going to lock Hillary Clinton up - that he has not directed Attorney General Jeff Sessions to immediately investigate this determination is incredibly disappointing.
Questions that need to be asked are these:
But, in the immediate, sign the petition and share it to everyone you know and ask them to sign it and pass it on as well. It is way past time that the Clintons pay the price for the arrogance and defiance of the rule of law.
Should Hillary Clinton walk on this, the Republic is lost, the rule of law is dead and our country is on the ash heap of time.
