|Luxembourg Neo-Nazis Being Treated Poorly - video link|
Here in the United States we have a President who once confessed that he found at least some neo-nazis to be good people. But in Luxembourg, where memories of the consequences of allowing such persons to run wild in the streets are deep and abiding, they quickly get the crap kicked out of them by the police and are then hauled off to jail.
It is important to remember that thousands of American World War II war dead are buried in Luxembourg, along with General George S. Patton. It is good to see that the ultimate sacrifice they made is still honored in this small European country.
Here in the United States the story is unfortunately different. Of course, not all Americans are soft on rioting neo-nazis. And some are not afraid to take matters into their own hands, either. The Blues Brothers being an especially good example. Check out the following video.

Next election you might want to consider casting a vote for Jake and Elwood Blues.
Mod: Speaking of violent American neo-nazis, apparently they too have enjoyed some very special overseas help.
GOP lawmaker: FBI has evidence Russian bots were fanning flames before Charlottesville violence (CNN link): Republican Rep. Tom Garrett, who represents Charlottesville, Virginia, said Monday that FBI officials told him and other members of Congress that Russian actors were attempting to sow discord around the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville last year before the event took place.
Garrett revealed the information publicly for the first time in an interview on CNN over the weekend and clarified separately that the activity took place before the rally.
"It was before. Via bots, the internet, and social media," Garrett said. "I'm frustrated because either both Republicans and Democrats do not understand what the Russians are actually doing, or they don't want to tell the truth about it, or both."
Garrett's recollection of the meeting with FBI officials was confirmed by fellow Rep. Morgan Griffith, a Virginia Republican who was sitting next to him during the briefing. Griffith recalls "jumping out of his chair" when he heard the news. Garrett asked if the information was classified, and FBI officials told him it was not.
Mod: Why Congressman Garrett chose to do nothing with that information remains an unanswered mystery.
