I saw that last night.  She's a smart woman and she has a way of investigating events and putting things in perspective.  I don't know if she's right.  If these scum have the numbers then we have a movement.  if not, what he have is what we've always had and a very prominent supporter.

@Foolish Monkey - as soon as she said it, which is a damn bold statement to make, the pieces came together for me. I was heading that way, but didn't have nearly the info and none of the connections she has. I think she's just spoken truth to power and made it that much harder for Trump to reach his devious, divisive goals.

Those klan numbers MUST be large. They are ALL klan to me. I see many showdowns and clashes ahead.  A review of what appears to be a police stand-down until a federal judge's injunction was lifted allowing the rally to be declared illegal in Charlottesville needs to be done immediately. I'm sure it is.  The whole DHS and DOJ insistence upon jurisdictional power over local police authority has to be settled now. Someone kept them at bay and it wasn't the mayor. We'll see in time. But, i'd much prefer a police presence at this point against armed white fanatics than antifa protesters protected with nothing but face scarves and using placards as shields and defensive weapons.

Plus, the message this has just sent to every white nationalist group in Europe!

Trump has succeeded in bringing the klan back into American politics....

@Ron - it is becoming clearer each day that the various southern  Republican senators and congressmen attending grassroots white take your country rallies, Kobach's voter suppression CrossCheck app, and Trump and Putin collusion had that swuarely in mind.

I'm beginning to wonder what Comey heard Trump say that made him believe Trump was criminally dangerous. I'm also rethinking some of those loyalty oaths. Th

@Ron - it is becoming clearer each day that the various southern  Republican senators and congressmen attending grassroots white Christian take back your country rallies in Russia these past few years, Kobach's voter suppression CrossCheck app, and Trump and Putin's collusion had the klan squarely in mind.

I'm beginning to wonder what Comey heard Trump say that made him believe Trump was criminally dangerous and started to write down his conversations with him. I'm also rethinking some of those loyalty oaths. This white supremacy paradigm is the well from which he drinks. And, with a father in the klan, arrested no less for disorderly, it would not be impolitic to assume Donald followed suit in some fashion. That is Rachel's stated premise, i believe. And, Trump, so easily lying, will declare neo-nazis evil all the while saying none attended because his definition of neo-nazi will be some German named Neo wearing full SS regalia. That is how he rationalizes his lies to himself...should he ever feel the need.

Many of us have known that beneath Trump's lies is a fetid wasteland of planned suffering for others as he attempts to hand America back to white males only.  And, as some others in the MSM pointed out yesterday, Trump isn't being influenced by Steve Bannon. Rather, Bannon is coordinating how to carry out Trump's vision.
