'Trump's Campaign Has Been Taking Cash From Neo-Nazi and White Supremacist Leaders'

'Trump's campaign has been taking cash from neo-Nazi & white supremacist leaders.' Daily Kos, Aug. 31, 2020. Excerpts.



During the 2016 campaign, you may recall, there was often a notable press reluctance to acknowledge that many of Donald Trump's supporters were raging white supremacists. (The most infamous case was a PBS story profiling a Trump volunteer worker that somehow managed to avoid noting the prominent neo-Nazi and white supremacist symbols tattooed on both hands.) Ah, the old days, when such things were even controversial.

Welcome to 2020, when Donald Trump is getting campaign donations from prominent neo-Nazis and there's apparently not even a glimmer of thought that gosh, maybe Typhoid Hitler might not want to cash those particular checks.

At Popular Information, Judd Legum investigates some of the notorious white supremacists who have donated to Trump's campaign (Link below). Actual Neo-Nazi leader Morris Gulett, who believes "the Jew is the literal child of Satan," has given Trump at least $2,000. (Legum notes that Trump's campaign was asked about Gulett's donations over two years ago, but refused and refuses to respond.) Other Trump campaign supporters include K.C. McAlpin, crackpot Peter Zieve, and (of course) rich racist Republican-backer Timothy Mellon, who's shoved $10 million at Trump's super PAC and $30 million towards getting Trump's enablers in the House and Senate reelected.

There's no chance Trump's campaign will be returning the money, of course..Trump's new "law and order" campaign theme, hastily plastered on top of the administration's massive and ongoing pandemic failures, has brought his support for white nationalism and its violence front and center. Trump's racist response to calls for police reform are now his campaign's primary message.

If anything, it's likely that Trump's embrace of prominent neo-Nazi leaders will not stop at taking their money this time around. Trump and his son Junior have been bolder in retweeting white nationalist and eliminationist themes. Trump's Fox News allies, including Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, have been steadily ratcheting up their defenses of vigilante violence on Trump's behalf. We may yet see Trump standing on stage with one of these militia-uniformed goons before the campaign is out.

*Trump Campaign Accepts Donations From Neo-Nazi Leader,' Judd Legum, Popular Information, Aug. 31, 2020.
https://popular.info/p/trump-campaign-accepts-donations

..In between stints in prison, Morris Gulett set up an outpost of the Aryan Nations, also known as the Church of Jesus Christ Christian, in Louisiana. He promoted his group as the "most-feared and revered white supremacist organization the world has ever known." The Trump campaign has repeatedly accepted cash from Gulett..

Gulett's donations are not an anomaly. The Trump campaign has also accepted the maximum donation from Peter Zieve, a Washington State businessman. Zieve was sued by Washington State for discriminating against minority applicants and imposing his racist views on his employees.

> The lawsuit describes how Zieve allegedly screened applicants by race, hired a nearly all-white staff, and offered employees a $1000 bonus for getting married and another $1000 bonus for having children. The stated purpose of the "procreation bonus" was to prevent the country from being overrun by minorities.

In a February 6, 2015 email, Zieve stated that he found immigrants from developing countries "repulsive" and didn't want them "around me." In an October 2, 2015 email announcing the birth of his own daughter, Zieve said that "381,000 terrorist savages have gotten into Europe so far this year and if we don’t make more babies the light will out on civilization."...

2. It does, breeding programs like Lebensborn, Nazi SS Stud Farms,

The Nazi Party: The 'Lebensborn' Master Race Program (1935-1945)

“Lebensborn” translates to “wellspring of life” or “fountain or life.” The Lebensborn project was one of most secret and terrifying Nazi projects. Heinrich Himmler founded the Lebensborn project on December 12, 1935, the same year the Nuremberg Laws outlawed intermarriage with Jews and others who were deemed inferior. For decades, Germany’s birthrate was decreasing. Himmler’s goal was to reverse the decline and increase the Germanic/Nordic population of Germany to 120 million. Himmler encouraged SS and Wermacht officers to have children with Aryan women. He believed Lebensborn children would grow up to lead a Nazi-Aryan nation.

The purpose of this society was to offer to young girls who were deemed “racially pure” the possibility to give birth to a child in secret. The child was then given to the SS organization which took charge in the child’s education & adoption. Both mother & father needed to pass a “racial purity” test. Blond hair & blue eyes were preferred, and family lineage had to be traced back at least 3 generations. Of all the women who applied, only 40% passed the racial purity test and were granted admission. The majority of mothers were unmarried, 57.6% until 1939, and about 70% by 1940. Initially, the Lebensborn were taken to SS nurseries. But in order to create a “super-race,” the SS transformed nurseries into “meeting places” for “racially pure” German women who wanted to meet & have children with SS officers.



- A Lebensborn Birth House

The children born in the Lebensborn nurseries were then taken by the SS. Lebensborn provided support for expectant mothers, wed or unwed, by providing a home and the means to have their children in safety and comfort. The first Lebensborn home was opened in 1936 in Steinhoering, a tiny village not far from Munich. Furnishings for the homes were supplied from the best of the loot from the homes of Jews who had been sent to Dachau. There were 10 Lebensborn homes in Germany, 9 in Norway, 2 in Austria, and 1 each in Belgium, Holland, France, Luxembourg and Denmark.. By 1939, the program had not produced the results Himmler had hoped. He issued a direct order to all SS and police to father as many children as possible to compensate for war casualties.

Lebensborn soon expanded to welcome non-German mothers. In a Hitler policy in 1942, German soldiers were encouraged to fraternize with native women, and any children they produced would be provided for. Racially fit women, most often the girlfriends or one-night stands of SS officers, were invited to Lebensborn homes to have their child in privacy & safety. One of the most horrible sides of the Lebensborn policy was the kidnapping of children “racially good” in the eastern occupied countries after 1939. The kidnappings were organized by the SS in order to take children by force who matched the Nazis’ racial criteria. Thousands of children were transferred to the Lebensborn centers in order to be “Germanized.” Up to 100,000 children may have been stolen from Poland alone...

4. Oh shit

I had shockingly blonde hair and I have blue green eyes.

I would have been kidnapped because my mom had brown hair and eyes and my father looked Native American with black hair and Ruddy darkish skin,he had ice blue eyes. Was a huge tall guy. But sadly he was a sociopath drunk abuser.

It's scary how fucked up the Nazis were.

6. Sounds like you would def be chosen. Hitler hated red heads

I once read, but searched and never found any more info. Perhaps because he was scorned by one, lol, or more likely because quite a few Jews in Holland, Russia and elsewhere have red hair. But so do Nordics and Scots.

Nazis were/are indeed crazy and sick. And others, namely pervert Jeffrey Epstein who wanted to breed babies with young women at his remote New Mexico ranch (more 'geniuses'?). The idea has been around a long while in various groups.

9. A lot of the old rich

The inherited wealth 1 % are probably racist. Anything to justify thier disgusting levels of wealth
To themselves and others.

We have to stop generational wealth accumulation among the top1%

Take that money so they cannot interfere in politics and impose shit on others because of the power and preference and privlege people too often give wealthy people who deserve no privleges,no power or preferences over other people.

Wealth has to be drained away from those dynastic pustules. And corporations either limited severely or eliminated entirely.

We can't afford those assholes.

10. Yep it would not have been funny

If those poor kids got slaughtered by the race police or were used by mengle in his horrific "experiments"

Truthfully I am scared and ungodly pissed off at the racist pieces of shit,the narcissism Authoritarianism and psychopathy running rampant in our country.

Wish there was a fool proof,non cruel way to remove the dark personalities from people with them. Give them a shot and they grow a consience or a pill and they feel empathy and cannot turn it off..

Because these personality traits in people are a scourge on all of us. Nazis had dark personalities and features or they would not be nazis.
