When white kids go full Nazi it's somehow OUR fault, because reasons

What Happened After My 13-Year-Old Son Joined the Alt-Right

When my son Sam,* who was then 14, asked me to take him to the Mother of All Rallies on the Mall in September 2017, I said no. The pro-Trump event was billed as a demonstration to preserve “traditional American culture,” and white supremacists were expected to show up in force. Not only was this not how I wanted to spend a Saturday—like almost everyone I knew, I’d been devastated by the 2016 election results—but I had serious concerns about safety. At Charlottesville’s Unite the Right rally only a month earlier, a neo-Nazi had killed counterprotester Heather Heyer. I couldn’t shake off the shock of her violent murder, or of watching men with tiki torches shout racist slogans across the University of Virginia grounds. Police there were unable to protect citizens; I couldn’t reasonably expect this gathering in DC to be any different.

Sam knew exactly how I would react to his request. He’d anticipated my automatic veto and readied reasons in favor of attending—not as a participant, he stressed, but as an observer. I can still see him standing in front of me, the longing apparent in his big brown eyes. His favorite school subject was history, he reminded me, and he hungered to witness a genuinely significant event firsthand. As he would tell me later: “I wanted to be part of something big.”

The rally was just a half-hour Metro ride from our home in Washington’s outer suburbs—so he could make the trip alone, he assured me, flashing the transit app on his phone.

His case was well thought out, his explanations admirable. In fact, they were perfectly (too perfectly?) reverse-engineered to match my own values. I’d always preached to him the importance of seeing things for yourself before making a decision, of talking to people individually to understand what motivated them.

Still, I suspected I was being had.

MEANWHILE, in Colorado...


Very interesting question...


Does he ever have anything positive to say about someone, ever??


Since we love discussing outside interference and world powers staging coups in smaller nations...

I'm certain we'll have plenty to discuss here:


Las Vegas police officer arrested for child luring, lewdness and abuse

Source: Channel 5 KVVU-TV

HENDERSON, Nevada (FOX5) - Henderson police arrested a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer for luring a child and and lewdness with a child.

Matthew James Terry, 27, was arrested Tuesday for three counts of lewdness by an adult with a child over 14, two counts of attempted lewdness by an adult with a child under 14, luring a child or mentally ill person with harmful computer material and six counts of child abuse or neglect, according to the Henderson Police Department. Terry was contacted and arrested "without incident," and a search warrant was served at his home, police said.

LVMPD said Officer Terry has been with the department since Feb. 2014, assigned to the Community Policing Division's Northeast Area Command. "Terry has been relieved of duty with pay until the court accepts the charges. Once that occurs, his status will be changed to relieved of duty without pay."

According to his arrest report, in Aug. 2017, a relative reported “strange behavior in Terry’s relationship with younger boys.” The relative said he was involved with young children as a youth football coach.

So he was actually reported to the police two years ago and nothing happened to him... Because of their inaction, how many more kids was he able to assault between then and now?

Nothing to see here, just the Intercept burning another NatSec source...
