League of the South Blames 'Mentally-Ill Young Jews With Guns' For Jacksonville Shooting

League of the South co-founder and president Michael Hill posted a statement on the organization’s website today blaming “mentally-ill young Jews with guns” for yesterday’s shooting at a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida.

A gunman killed two and injured 11 at a “Madden” football video game tournament yesterday before fatally shooting himself. When the gunman was identified as David Katz, 24, of Baltimore, white nationalists latched on to Katz’ last name as an indication that he practiced Judaism and that the shooting was further justification for their anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Mike “Enoch” Peinovich, the founder of the alt-right podcast network The Right Stuff, wrote that the shooting was “a small scale version of Israel’s Samson option.”

Failed anti-Semitic and white nationalist House candidate Paul Nehlen also engaged in rampant anti-Semitism after the shooting, accusing Jews of being over-representing in mass shootings.

Can't say I am surprised. Happens every fucking time, and just as predictable, it is ignored.

2. I'm rarely surprised by the ways of hate but I am always disgusted.

8. Ditto.

Though I am fascinated by those who look to ignore it in one way or another. While anti-Semitism may not be "flashy", it is still worthy of note and worthy of fighting. It is different in many ways from other bigotries, but always seems to be just under the surface.

9. I don't know how anyone could ignore it since it is a major component of white supremacy

They hate people of color and they hate Jewish people. It's all part and parcel to the ethos of the Klan, Aryan nation groups, assorted white supremacist groups, and Nazi groups.

Always has been part of their belief system.

Hate of people of color and hate of Jewish people.

It's not one or the other with them - it's both.

I know you know all this.

I'm more or less talking it out to myself at the moment.

How can anyone not know that about white supremacists? (their hate mantra)

How can they ignore it considering the atrocities connected to such beliefs?

I'm not suggesting it isn't ignored. I'm only expressing why I think it shouldn't be ignored and how a person would have to work at ignoring it.

They hate people of color, Jewish people, LGBT people, people they view as "race traitors", in all honesty - they don't like women either - anyone, really, that they see as the "other".

A person can't afford to ignore the full roster of people that white supremacists hate because everyone on that list is a target of their hate.

Basically, we are all in danger from them.

Some more so than others, and more often, but we are still in danger.

And it all matters. Who they attack matters.

I'm probably not making sense. I feel so much on this topic that it all wants to come rushing out at once and can sound incoherent.

3. League Of The South hails Trump, wants no Mercy' towards Jews

By Brian Tashman | November 10, 2016 2:23 pm

As white supremacists and neo-Nazis celebrate the results of the presidential election, Michael Hill, president of the neo-Confederate League of the South, reacted to Donald Trump’s victory yesterday by vowing to show “no mercy” to “the enemies of our God, our Folk and our civilization” and to finally “drive a stake” through the heart of “the globalist-progressive coalition of Jews, minorities, and anti-white whites” ...

5. Hmm. What about this thread?


https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=11061398

It's OK to infer a characteristic/trait against ALL white people in that thread - Look at the support for that garbage on a 'progressive site.'..seriously...that is a scary thread.

But with this thread, we are supposed to be outraged because the target of 'All white people', is changed to Jewish people?

That is hypocrisy. That is why the left fails. Perfect example.

No rage when the target is 'white people', but frothing at the mouth when it is Jewish people being maligned...

Can't say I'm surprised though. No consistency here, no values, no morals. Just a bunch of people trying to score points by dividing the place. It is obvious.

6. One rather large problem with your comparison

 

There isn't an endemic of Jewish people committing mass shootings or committing suicide (sometimes after murdering innocent people like this guy). There is a problem with white guys doing both of those. If there was a large number of Jewish people doing these things, it would be appropriate to discuss ways to fix it. Just like it's appropriate to discuss violence and poverty and racism that impacts minorities and rape, sexual harassment and domestic violence impact women.

Sure not everybody in those populations experiences those issues, but a significant number do.

I can say black people vote Democratic in spite of Been Carson existing.

7. People of all colors kill.

 

Some murders are more important than others.
