          A black man says he has accidentally persuaded around 200 white racists to abandon the Klu Klux Klan simply by befriending them. Blues musician Daryl Davis has travelled the US for around three decades, actively seeking out white supremacists as a hobby. In a new documentary, out this month, the 58-year-old ....

          Fox News Guest: Confederate And Gay Pride Flags Are 'Exact Same Thing'

              I wonder how many supporters of Trump's racism and misogyny will be making new and different excuses for him? FOX is an obvious apologist for Trump, and on one segment Star Parker gives her take on why Trump is a supporter of White supremacists, as she conflates the Confederate flag with the Rainbow flag and maligns Nancy Pelosi in the process.

              During a segment on Fox News’ Fox & Friends, a guest compared the pride flag to the Confederate flag in defense of Trump’s slow reaction to condemn white supremacy in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

              Co-host Steve Doocy asked Star Parker about the president’s statement, saying, “What do you think about Nancy Pelosi, who made this statement yesterday: ‘It shouldn’t take the president of the United States two days to summon the basic decency to condemn murder and violence by Nazis and white supremacists.'”

              “That is not what happened. Nancy Pelosi is exploiting an opportunity that they think will play to their side. On Saturday, there were two sides that were in an American city that were — then it was escalating very rapidly. No, the question became then, well, do you denounce the one part of it?” Parker said.

              “But you know what’s really interesting and really incredible irony here is the same people that are demanding that the Confederate flag comes down are the same people that are insisting that the rainbow flag goes up. These two flags represent the exact same thing. That certain people groups are not welcome here.

              Trump's Business Councils Dissolve After CEOs Turn Against Him

                  just in case anybody doubts the moral decreptitude, the wornout and infirm morality of trump - the trump and a false public breakup with the manufacturing council - composed of ceo's of large corporate interests. this is the group mr. elon musk left after paris climate agreement was refuted by trump mafia.

                  after the charlotsville riot by neo nazi, white supremacists, white nationalist, klu klux klan, mr. kenneth frazier of merck & co., was the first to leave, followed by four other ceo's. on tuesday trump after trashing mr frazier, trump said he would replace the quitters. he then continued to insist that the white supremacist groups were no different than the people protesting the nazi's. on wednesday morning, 15 august 2017 the council members, in a conference call, decided to disband the group.

                  included in these were ceo's of blackstone group, blackrock inc., jp morgan chase & co., under armour inc, intel corp., 3M, campbell soup, general electric co., boeing, uber, disney, alliance for american manufacturing, afl-cio. just so you know, many large corporations do not support mad trump mafia. only two members of the council did not resign from the council.

                  wednesday 16 august 2017 afternoon, after being informed of this as a courtesy, before it was announced by council members to the media, trump announced he was disbanding the council.

                  so, this is the petty wannabe putin dictator that the u.s.a. is continuing to support as president.

                  harsh words? if you are not openly and outright against him, then you are for him.

                  What Is 'Antifa'? Meet The Fascist-fighting Coalition Dubbed The 'Alt-Left' By President

                  Antifa stands for anti-facist; it is a loose coalition of left wing protesters who have vowed to meet right wing violence with violence. "They relish in punching Nazis. They protest in all black. And they've vowed to physically confront racists and extremists across the country,” according to the linked article from NBC news. They meet fire with fire. Certainly, they are not the first leftists ito take this position. This approach has always been controversial. Some believe violence must be met with violence. Others believe that Anifas actions creates an excuse for authoritarianism.

                  "Antifa traces its roots to the 1920s and ’30s, when militant leftists battled fascists in the streets of Germany, Italy, and Spain. When fascism withered after World War II, antifa did too. But in the ’70s and ’80s, neo-Nazi skinheads began to infiltrate Britain’s punk scene. After the Berlin Wall fell, neo-Nazism also gained prominence in Germany. In response, a cadre of young leftists, including many anarchists and punk fans, revived the tradition of street-level antifascism." www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/the-r...

                  I have included links to two articles which include relevant information.

                      What’s particularly striking about the financial disclosure is how Trump has been profiting off the presidency. Every time Trump makes a trip to Mar-a-Lago or one of his golf resorts, it receives an incredible about of media attention. Now we may know one reason why Trump values them so much. In addition to liking the game of golf, Trump is making an incredible amount of money off of them. And, more so now that he’s president.

                      Out of a total reported income of $585,581,420 – essentially half of that, or $288 million, is coming from his golf courses.

                      In all, Trump has spent 25 days out of his presidency at Mar-a-Lago. That may seem like a small number, but keep in mind that Trump has only been in office a total of 147 days. That’s 17 percent of his entire presidency. That’s not counting his visits to his other properties.

                      The income Trump is receiving from Mar-a-Lago is already $7.5 million more than what he reported in 2016, a marked increase. He reported $37.2 million in income from there. Trump also earned $19.8 million from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey where he has spent several weekends.

                      Trump Disbands Manufacturing Councils After CEOs Protests

                          Trump has made it crystal clear: support racists or I'll get rid of all of you.

                          Donald Trump disbanded two high-profile business advisory councils on Wednesday after corporate CEOs quit in protest at his remarks blaming violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, not only on white nationalists but also on the protesters who opposed them.

                          A parade of prominent Republicans and U.S. ally Britain rebuked Trump after his Tuesday comments on Saturday's bloodshed further enveloped his seven-month-old presidency in controversy and paralyzed his policy aims.

                          Trump announced the break-up of the advisory councils after 3M Co's (MMM.N) Inge Thulin became the latest of several chief executives to leave Trump's American Manufacturing Council, and the president's Strategic and Policy Forum broke up of its own will.

                          U.S. stocks had been trading near the day's high when the latest trickle of CEO resignations emerged in early afternoon and the market weakened substantially.

                          Opinion From An Ex-White Power Activist On Stopping Hate

                              This is one man's opinion on the way to stop hate. It is a great read, and gives much food for thought .

                              Arno Michaels: "I learned the hard way how to stop hate. For that to happen, humankind must reconcile the ongoing fallout from five centuries of white supremacy."

                              He states: "I've seen it happen. It works. Human kinship really can dispel the fear and ignorance fueling the narratives of all violent extremism, white supremacist and otherwise. Telling people they are wrong rarely gets through. Demonstration of what's right reached me, and it can make all the difference in the lives of those who are currently consumed by hate, which directly results in fewer hate crime victims and better opportunities for the discussions that so urgently need to happen"

                              Michaels tells us: The root cause of all of the issues we face together as a human race is a disconnect from each other's humanity -- an inability, in short, to have compassion for one another and ourselves. This is a spiritual problem that requires a spiritual solution, not a political one. That spiritual solution is found in service, and oneness, as demonstrated by the Sikh community after the shooting at the temple in Wisconsin.

                              So the next time members of the tiki-torch brigade rear their misguided heads, instead of screaming back at them, let's organize interfaith, inter-community service events in authentic defiance of hate and violence. Joyful happenings such as a massive multicultural food festival to raise money for homeless veterans, or a collaborative community art project happening across the street can shut down debacles such as "Unite the Right."

                              Please read the entire essay!
