Donald Trump’s very thoughtful denunciation of the “hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides — many sides” in Charlottesville, Virginia, hasn’t won him a lot of credit, even though the White House later issued an unattributed statement clarifying that one of the “sides” was definitely the white supremacists, so What Do You People Want? In fact, the Nazi trolls at the Daily Stormer were pleased as brass-knuckled punch that the statement “didn’t attack us” and contained “No condemnation at all” of white supremacists. Also, just this morning, after almost 48 hours, Trump finally said the words, actually said racism is evil, and denounced the neo-Nazis, KKK, and white supremacists by name, so now everything is excellent and wonderful, OKAY??? (Don’t worry, the Daily Stormer crowd knows he only had to do it to keep from being destroyed by the Jewsmedia, and they know where his heart really is.)

Not that anyone should be surprised, since, as David Duke was so intent on reminding his president, he’s in office thanks to all the angry whites who voted for him. But let’s not forget that Mr. Trump has his own long history of racist renting policies and race-baiting opinions, which he certainly couldn’t condemn because Donald Trump makes no mistakes ever. Oh, yeah, and he settled those discrimination lawsuits — from the Nixon Justice Department — with no admission of wrongdoing, so there was no discrimination or wrongdoing. That’s pretty obvious.

Then, of course, there’s the uncomfortable reality that condemning a violent rally by white supremacists might feel to Trump like a betrayal of a family legacy, seeing as how his own beloved paterfamilias, Fred Trump, was arrested and later released following a violent KKK rally in May 1927, a fascinating detail of Trump History originally excavated by the tech blog Boing Boing in September 2015. There were a bunch of riots all over New York that day, led by fascists and the KKK:

In the fascist brawl, which took place in the Bronx, two Italian men were killed by anti-fascists. In Queens, 1,000 white-robed Klansmen marched through the Jamaica neighborhood, eventually spurring an all-out brawl in which seven men were arrested.

See? Antifa people have ALWAYS been violent, at least in the Bronx. And after the KKK rally in the Jamaica neighborhood in Queens, one of those arrested following the brawl was Fred Trump, father of Donald:

As the Washington Post notes, the Klan rally wasn’t so much about race as about filthy immigrants and Papists:

The predication for the Klan to march, according to a flier passed around Jamaica beforehand, was that “Native-born Protestant Americans” were being “assaulted by Roman Catholic police of New York City.” “Liberty and Democracy have been trampled upon,” it continued, “when native-born Protestant Americans dare to organize to protect one flag, the American flag; one school, the public school; and one language, the English language.”

Take out the Catholic-bashing and it sounds more than a little like a 2016 Trump campaign rally, huh? Fred Trump appears to be the only one of the seven arrested to have been released without charge; he was arrested “on a charge of refusing to disperse from a parade when ordered to do so,” according to another 1927 account. No word on whether he was wearing a robe; we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on that one, but he definitely refused to rent to blacks later in his life.

Also, big surprise! During the campaign, Donald Trump denied it ever happened:

“He was never arrested. He has nothing to do with this. This never happened. This is nonsense and it never happened,” he said to the Daily Mail. “This never happened. Never took place. He was never arrested, never convicted, never even charged. It’s a completely false, ridiculous story. He was never there! It never happened. Never took place.”

See, Trump has really evolved and become presidential: Today, he might even decry the “violence on many sides” associated with the KKK in the ’20s.

Also, since we’re doing history, let’s call attention (again) to this astounding excerpt from a 1943 War Department film called “Don’t Be A Sucker,” which explained how America is a lot different from Nazi Germany — but could just as easily fall to voices of division and hate.

And since the whole film is worth seeing, here it is in full — the first few minutes are cheesy as hell, but once it gets to the scene with the America First guy in the park, it picks up speed:

The film was actually rereleased after the war in 1947, presumably as the Cold War got xenophobia rolling again, and some sources connect it to the move to desegregate the armed forces. One thing’s for sure: It’s a far better discussion of how the Nazis used hate to divide up a Nation into winners and despised losers than, say, a screed claiming the Nazis were exactly like today’s Democrats.

    • Red Bird

      Ever notice that the only time white supremacists acknowledge the citizenship of non-white Americans is when they need cover for their own divisiveness? Wanting an all white nation is not the same thing as saying we are all Americans.

      • YoBunnyBunny

        Yeah it’s real cute, it’n.

        First it’s: “How can people be ‘real Americans’ if they’re claiming other statuses like African-American or Hispanic-American or Muslim-American, huh???”

        Then it’s: “But we’re all Americans, guys!”

        Granted, I think this is disingenuous pretzel logic. As someone who calls himself a “Nationalist” was just telling me this very weekend, why can’t they just call themselves “Americans”? From their perspective “white” isn’t a special racial class. They’re not “white”, they’re just “American”? How dare other people who have historically been defined as “not white”–i.e. “colored people” (and therefore not fully American citizens)–remind white supremacists them that they are, in fact, NOT white yet still American citizens. For them that can’t handle that we can be both. (But you know this already, Red).

      • Ms.Moon

        Unless your ancestors were here when the Mayflower landed everyone who lives in the United States is a descendant of immigrants. All of these “Americans” came from somewhere else it’s just a matter of when did people immigrate. The only people who have a right to tell everyone else to get out of my country are Native Americans and I wonder how those nazis would feel if Native Americans told them to get off their land.

        • Red Bird

          True. Yet something tells me that the Indigenous Americans wouldn’t do that.

  • JMP

    I’m betting Fred Trump getting released while his fellow KKK members were charged has absolutely nothing to do with preferential treatment given to the rich in America’s justice system.

  • TundraGrifter

    I believe Mr. Trump also settled a New Jersey employment discrimination case. His casino was taking Black employees off the floor when certain high rollers came in to lose.

    Fred Trump made an illegal $3,000,000 loan to one of his Atlantic City casinos by purchasing chips for cash and holding onto them. Donald J. Chump was suffering from a cash flow problem and needed to make a mortgage interest payment.

      • SisterArtemis

        Could we not swipe at Christians with a broad brush, please? There are a wide variety in their ranks, and a lot of the anti-Trump activism is coming from the Christian left, and even some from the Christian center. I may not follow their faith, but they are definitely not in the same camp as the assholes who use the religion to shore up their bigoted beliefs.

        • Red Bird

          I’m Christian and even I would swipe at us that way. I’ve heard too many people who should know better bend over backwards to defend racism simply because they aren’t the race that is being attacked.

          • SisterArtemis

            Yeah, I have no problem with that at all.

            I do have a problem with indistinct language, and rounding everyone who shares any version of a large religion (hmmmm, Islam comes to mind here) into one supposed mindset is just sloppy, in my opinion. But I admit it, I rage against “the Christians” in my own mind, and also am grateful to “the Christians” who’ve been driving so much of progressive activism for decades, but especially since 2016. And it makes me crazy that I haven’t come up with a consistent, neat, concise way to term the different camps.

            “Extremist” is a word that works. But there’s only some many times you can put “Christian extremist” in a paragraph before your tongue starts tripping over itself.

        • Dudleydidwrong

          Uh, okay. But “which Christian” is the question. The fundagelicals have taken over the field as far as publicity is concerned, selling their brand of faith as the only true Christianity and elbowing aside the rest. When the so-called mainline denominations began to speak and act boldly, I’ll accept the call to put down the broad brush.

      Because “Christianists” are racist liars themselves.

      so… reasons.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      The Southern Baptists are the Southern Baptists because they embraced white supremacy and slavery over 150 years ago, and still have major problems facing that. Nearly every fundie outfit is descended from the Southern half of sects that split over slavery.

        Nope, they have.

        Some Christian leaders were quick to condemn the Charlottesville attacks in specific, strong terms. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, who serves as president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, called them “abhorrent acts of hatred.” Cardinal Blase Cupich, who leads the Archdiocese of Chicago and is widely see as a close ally of Pope Francis, seemed to criticize President Trump’s initial statement on the attacks, which cited “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.” “When it comes to racism, there is only one side: to stand against it,” Cupich tweeted.

        I assume the current guy will get around to it shortly. His predecessor, the actual nazi, probably won’t say too much.

        • Red Bird

          Really? Good. Fun fact…Di Nardo was my Bishop back in the day. He is nice and very good at explaining theology to the lay person. I’m glad to hear he spoke up. Second fun fact…..Di Nardo is a fan of Dave Brubeck.

    If we want to do something positive right now, the best tactic is to launch a campaign to stop Trump’s racist, stupid, unnecessary border wall. Charlottesville happened because we elected a bigot who demonizes Mexicans, Muslims, immigrants, non-English speakers, and who wouldn’t rent to blacks or Jews. Trump has made that wall a contest of wills, so let’s shove it up his ass. Sideways. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/30056674016f66902b336533d5935c84ed65849f8fd823c3b5b4f7c570e2a98c.jpg

    I don’t know if anyone else has mentioned it, but at least so far the reactions over at Breitbart and (ugh, shower) /pol/ have been interesting. Seems, much like with the wall, everyone had a different idea of what exactly Trump meant when he talked about race and heritage, and winked and nodded at the racist base of the party. Some thought he meant “I’m here, I’m racist and you can’t stop me!” some thought he meant “Hey, you’re an average Joe like me, and we’re not reeeealy racists, we just think BLM is a terrorist org and I’ll be the one to say it!” and a whole mess of other ideas.

    Turns out taking someone seriously but not literally doesn’t work out so well when actually being president, and y’know, living in reality, are such tiresomely literal affairs.

        Entrapment’s gonna be hard to prove since he could have bailed out.

      What’s his point? We’ve all seen the pictures of BLM protests where there was no militia and yet “armies” of police showed up with armored tanks.

      • Incoming Ham

        That should have been the immediate response. Those idiots showed up with military weapons of various kinds and where all too happy to use them “if necessary.” I am hoping that god forbid this shit happens in the future the powers that be take it more seriously and are ready up front.

        • Red Bird

          They won’t. The police have already decided that they’re purpose is to protect white people regardless of ideology.

          • Incoming Ham

            I hope they will – I think this (perhaps temporarily) scared the shit out of all of them.

          • Red Bird

            Nope. It will take one of those militia guys killing a police office for them to change. As someone else pointed out, the main reason the police in Ferguson/Baltimore had more equipment is because they were already militarized for the specific purpose of policing predominantly black communities. Charlottesville is predominantly white. So, they didn’t see the need to be armed. If BLM had scheduled a protest, they would have called in the military for support. I am willing to make that bet.

          • Latverian Diplomat

            Kill a white police officer, perhaps?

    • Rick Hill

      Same way trump never lost one of those lawsuits. “Never settled” is his way of saying he settled

      • Latverian Diplomat

        “Never lost” I think you mean, but yes.

        Also “never admitted wrongdoing” becomes “never did anything wrong” out of his mouth. Which is one reason letting people settle under those terms is problematic. I understand the desire to just get the situation cleaned up as soon as possible, but it does have a downside.

      Frederich Trumpf sounds like the man to me.

      Owning brothels was extremely common back then. I have a friend who his great-great grandparents owned a bar that was also a brothel in the Midwest and they emigrated from Germany. I also know people who were children of Italian immigrants and their parents owned a brothel.

      The majority of German-Americans emigrated from the kingdom of Bavaria, which is now the Rhineland-Palatinate region of Germany. Why? Because here in the United States and in Canada they could own their own land, actually own farms or other businesses, etc. have religious and political freedom, and the land was very cheap here.

      In Rhode Island, there has been a very large population of Italians for a long, long time. I remember growing up on a middle-class street of Jews, Italians, Irish, WASPs, Methodists, many Catholics, a Syrian family, but especially Italians. They were called jibronies, or “jibs”, wops, you name it. Most of the folks in the neighborhood would never use those terms about anyone.
      When I began hearing those “bad names”, as my mom called them, directed at my friends and their relatives, I would get very agitated.

      One day, on the porch with my grampa (I was maybe 9 or 10), I said, “why do people make fun of people of different religions? He said, “Well, it’s like this. I go to work every day and drive to Pawtucket. Now, I can take the highway, or I can go on this road or that street, but sooner or later, I’m going to wind up in Pawtucket. It doesn’t matter how I go.”

    I suppose I should, in the interest of transparency, acknowledge that my own dear adoptive papa, born 1899 in Texas, was in the KKK in the 1920s, according to what my mom told me well after he died. According to what little she knew, he hadn’t done any crimes; he said it was like a racist college social club: get together, drink some beers, burn a cross, talk about how the Catholics are trying to take Texas over from the Babtists, and that was it. Her point in telling me the story was that anyone can be redeemed, since after they met he converted to Catholicism and became very, very devout.

    He died when I was 10; I have a feeling we would have had some serious disagreements had he lived long enough for me to get into high school.

    • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

      It doesn’t matter, though, because it has nothing to do with who you are–if anything, you’re writing this to repudiate it. If Donald was a kind and tolerant man, advocating against bigotry, and repudiating his father, it wouldn’t matter either. It DOES matter regarding Donald because he is in fact wholly furthering and continuing his father’s wretched bigotry.

    • davidhollenshead

      doktor zoom,
      I noticed your post about discussing violence, in a previous piece.
      I also realize that unless our Führer Trump & his Brownshirts are stopped soon, they will unleash mass human insanity on the rest of us, a genie that won’t easily go back into the bottle.
      Please consider what happens when white supremacists pass the point of no return to their lives as a closet racist. After they have committed a few hate crimes, they are in the fight for the duration, which is the most disturbing part of our Führer Trump’s doggie whistle. Except for the small issue of Führer Trump’s “apparent” Treason & Money Laundering, which suggests he, his son and son n law have “apparently” already passed that point of no return, and can be looking forward to death row, after due process of law.
      So while I do not support violence, I have to tell you there will be blood, and ask that you don’t have a cow over posting this observation. As there already has been blood, and those of us who oppose a Fascist America ought to be getting ready for this fight. After all the white supremacists have already done so, as seen by their march in uniform with their AR-15s.
      My advise to patriotic Americans is work for peace, but prepare for civil war, as is becoming more likely each new day. My Prussian Jewish grandfather explained what mass human insanity is like, and how hard it is to stop, once people have committed themselves to a criminal organization. He also taught me there were things worth dying for, which helps explain why none of his family were concentration camp survivors, but one of them did kill a few officers in the SS.

        True story. When I first moved to Texas in the 80’s there was an sale ad for wine at a popular grocery chain. I went to the local store and looked all over for wine and could only find beer. I asked a clerk about it. He told me this town was dry and didn’t sell alcohol. I said what about all the beer and he said, no kidding, beer isn’t alcohol!

    You’re right. That was a good video. Sucks that 70 years later, so much of it suddenly seems familiar.

    First, I think it’s interesting that the 1920s protest mentioned protection of public schools, considering how the right now condemns those institutions of government propaganda. Second, I am a huge fan of Mississippi-based, German born (although to an American military family) author Greg Iles, who writes some amazing fiction which is based upon little known & well concealed aspects of the Klan – actually splinter groups who decried the more visible Klan movement.

      Nope, that dastardly MSM and Libs used a time machine to frame our Führer Trump’s father as KKK.

    1. Drunk neighbor (white) called my dad a derogatory name for Joos
    2. Drunk neighbor’s daughter wrote similar bad word on our porch
    3. Parents told me no more play time with daughter.
    4. Drunk neighbor’s wife came to our house and told us the only bigots were on our side of the street.
    5. That’s how this shit happens and perpetuates.

    The way I heard it, he was picked up by the police but was not charged with rioting &c, so as teh Don has said, it never happened. Just as those people in Charlottesville were the unfortunate victims of a vehicle accident that had noting to do with the political right.

  • AuntyMaude

    The repetition of these phrases: We are a divided country; People are very polarized; Everyone lives in their own bubble is, to me, a way to divide us. It’s just like advertising or any other kind of propaganda we’re exposed to daily. So I think we begin to see ourselves as what we keep hearing we are. And it’s always promoted by some group of a-holes who want to own and take everything. And because most people aren’t like that, the a-holes of the world have to divide us, otherwise they can’t take it all. The best college class I ever took was the History of Propaganda in America. It opened my eyes even more to how f-ed the system is against people.

    Considering that Don the Con 45 used a phrase taken directly from a Hitler speech it’s no surprise he won’t renounce the Nazi’s or any other hate group.
    Make America Great Again is a take from Hitler’s speech from

    Yes, Adolf Hitler Really Said He Would ‘Make Germany Great Again’-

    From the January 4, 1934 issue of the Green Bay Press-Gazette:
    In1923 Hitler gathered a few men together to “march on Berlin.” The attempt was a failure. Hitler was sentenced to prison for five years, but he was allowed to go free long before his term was up. People laughed at him, and thought he was of little importance.

    Adolf Hitler, out of prison, took advantage of the groans. He told people that he would make Germany “great” again. He blamed Jews, Socialists, Communists, and others for the troubles of the land. His blazing speeches gained followers for his “cause.”

    The phrase pops up again in the February 24, 1940 edition of the St. Louis Star and Times in Missouri. The newspaper quotes a Hitler speech that was broadcast throughout Germany and even played on radio in the United States. In a direct quote
    from Hitler:

    “Nationalism and Socialism had to be redefined and they had to be blended into one strong new idea to carry new strength which would make Germany great again.”
    Copies of the actual newspaper at this link:
    http://paleofuture.gizmodo.com/yes-adolf-hitler-really-said-he-would-make-germany-gre-1789261081

    One of his neo-Nazi white supremacist advisors probably found this in a book on their shelf and decide to take the phrase and replace the Germany reference with America. Since Trump loves the uneducated it wouldn’t be difficult to manipulate the already racist groups and people in this country to buy into a Nazi theme. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f4cc9697651b3b899a0fc8617565a908b1bd90a547bd12af9fa262ddbde2a812.jpg e.

      I’ve been trying to tell people, you did it so much better with actual quotes and evidence. I’m afraid many just can’t believe that so many Americans are closet white supremacists. The morons we saw in Charlottesville are just the tip of the iceberg of misdirected white rage. Thanks for an excellent comment.
