Is Vox Political on this Home Office list of left-wing ‘extremism’?

Take a look at this:

The Home Office has lumped together left-wing groups and green campaigners with neo-nazis and white supremacists in literature and posters supposedly designed to educate officers about extremism.

The Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) document has categories including white supremacist and nationalist groups, left-wing and “associated single issue groups,” animal rights groups, and environmental campaigns.

The left-wing and environmental groups listed include the Communist Party of Britain (CPB), Stop the War, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), Extinction Rebellion (XR) and Greenpeace.

Let’s have a poll:

What the Trump? US president defends Nazis and white supremacists

“Trump and Theresa new best friends,” tweeted Diane Abbott a few months ago. “Be afraid world. Be very afraid.”

This Writer is going to keep a decent stockpile of photographs showing Theresa May holding Donald Trump’s hand, because after this week, that’s all we’ll need to defeat the Conservatives in a UK general election.

It took Mr Trump – who is, let’s remember, the President of the United States and leader of the so-called “free world” – 60 hours to denounce the nazis and white supremacists who caused havoc, injury and death at a demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia at the weekend.

Then he held a press conference and said this:

So he has rowed back on everything he said before and is now defending the indefensible with a claim that the people protesting against their violence, bigotry and hatred were also to blame.

How do we feel about that, Twitter?

Here’s a good exchange:

And what about Trump’s claim that there were “fine people” on both sides?

I’m with Gorgeous George on this. Moving on:

Ah, but they’re not Nazis in today’s politically-correct world. They’re the “alt-right”. What do we think about that?

That’s already happened, in fact:

https://twitter.com/CarlBeijer/status/897554684277252096

Trump in fact equated the “bad” right-wingers with the “violent” left (and who says they were left-wing, anyway? You don’t have to be a socialist to hate nazi-saluting morons).

Here’s the reception he got:

More incisive, perhaps, are the following, which cut to the heart of the matter with satire.

In fairness, Trump did receive some praise for the new position he has taken. It came from the Ku Klux Klan:

Here’s the connection with Theresa May:

Last word goes to Rav Danya Ruttenberg, for obvious reasons, considering this:

In fact, congregants at the Charlottesville synagogue were put in fear for their safety by people apparently wearing the uniform of a white supremacist group.

There is strong language in this final tweet so those of you who don’t like that sort of thing might want to stop reading now.

I wait with baited breath for Trump’s abject apology to his country’s Jewish community.

All of the above may mask a deeply unpleasant truth, though – which is that the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave is increasingly becoming the very enemy it defeated in 1945.

Ethnic minorities – including Jews – are being persecuted.

And the political leader of the country is speaking up for the aggressors.

We know where this ends, if it is allowed to continue.

Let’s put a stop to it right now.

America, the world is waiting for you to do what must be done.

Will Dakota pipeline protesters need protection from racial supremacists after Trump’s victory?

It’s a valid question.

The Native Americans on the Standing Rock reservation may be descended from the land’s original inhabitants, but that seems unlikely to make an impression on Donald Trump – or his supporters.

Already we have heard accounts of incidents in which people belonging to minority groups have been told to “get out of our country” (their country?) by people who seem to believe in white supremacy.

Why should the Native Americans escape the same fate?

And, if Donald Trump demands the completion of the pipeline, despite the arguments against it, won’t he be playing into the hands of the racists?

Won’t he be either endorsing their behaviour or, at the very least, giving them an excuse to justify it?

Think on it, America.

The surprising victory by Native American and environmental groups in September to delay the Dakota Access Pipeline may turn out to be short-lived, after Donald Trump’s unexpected win in the U.S. presidential election.

Trump backs measures to speed energy industry development and upgrade the country’s oil and gas infrastructure. He has not commented specifically on the $3.7 billion Dakota Access line but has said he would seek to revive another controversial pipeline, the Keystone XL line. That project, which would pump oil from Canada through Nebraska, was rejected in 2014 by the Obama administration.

The 1,172-mile (1,885 km) line was planned to run from North Dakota’s Bakken shale region to Illinois, but protests from environmental activists and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North Dakota galvanized the Obama administration to delay construction to ensure Native American concerns about the line’s route were properly addressed.

One day after Trump’s victory, Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II said the results show “that we as a country have so much work to do.” He did not mention Trump in his statement to Reuters, instead saying President Barack Obama could still halt the pipeline.

“We must strengthen our resolve to protect the water, pray together for understanding, and pour our hearts and minds into the future of all our children,” he said.

It is not clear now whether Dakota Access would be rerouted or piped under the sensitive watershed, which the tribe considers sacred.
