Los Angeles Times: Neo-Nazi 'alt-right' crowd cheers the president-elect with 'Hail Trump'

Meet the guy Trump's Chief Strategist Steve Bannon called "a leading intellectual."

Link to this video here.

Neo-Nazi 'alt-right' crowd cheers the president-elect with 'Hail Trump' (Los Angeles Times link): A newly released video shows a room full of people doing the Hitler salute and yelling "Hail Trump!" after listening to a speech about white nationalism that invokes Nazi terminology.

The video was taken over the weekend by a reporter for The Atlantic while working on a documentary about Richard Spencer. Spencer is the person speaking in the video. He runs the National Policy Institute, a self-described "alt-right" think tank that openly supports white nationalist and neo-Nazi policies. In the past, he has called for a "peaceful ethnic cleansing" of the United States.

In the video, Spencer calls the media "leftists" and "cucks," invoking popular "alt-right" insults for people they disagree with. He calls the media the "L├╝genpresse," which is what the original Nazi Party called the media in Germany – the "lying press."

"We don't exploit other groups," he says, the "we" referring explicitly to white people. "We don't gain anything from their presence."

"The press has clearly decided to double-down and wage war against the legitimacy of Trump and the continued existence of white America," he continues. "But they are really opening up the door for us.... America was, until this past generation, a white country, designed for ourselves and our posterity. It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us."

Members of the crowd give the Nazi salute throughout the speech.

Tonight's Sierra Madre City Council Meeting
You can find the entire meeting agenda by clicking here. As far as I can tell the only potential for fireworks this evening is with the last item, which looks like this on the agenda.


On Saturday the 19th we posted the following article, which I still think gets it right. Apparently the search for a new City Manager is not progressing as quickly as once hoped, and Elaine Aguilar is going to be held over in an interim capacity for at least the next three months. With this item the necessary legal, financial and CalPERS considerations will be finalized by a vote of the City Council.

    1. It must be nice to have Hillary to blame for everything. Much better than actually dealing with the issues.

    2. I blame Hillary voters for giving her a 2 million lead in the popular vote and making Donald look bad. It was very immature of them to do that.

    Shut up 5:17.

    The more this crowd calls deplorable Trump and his deplorable supporters racist, sexist, homophobic, etc, the more they marginalize themselves. And devalue their juvenile accusations. Which is why we have now arrived at the Naxi stage. You go girls!

    okay, you got me. National Socialists are bad. I learned that when I was 6.

    Rather than spending the day showing your current selves are better than Nazis, why not better your current selves? Spend an hour reading Joel Kotkin's series on the disappearing middle class and how California's policies are accelerating that disappearance. It will help you understand why Donald Trump is to be inaugurated as our amazing president. Can't wait.

    4. From the article: Richard Spencer is one of the leading “intellectuals” of the alt-right movement. This was according the website Breitbart when it was being run by incoming White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon.

      “The media empire of the modern-day alternative right coalesced around Richard Spencer during his editorship of Taki’s Magazine,” the publication glowed in a March piece explaining the alt-right phenomenon. “In 2010, Spencer founded AlternativeRight.com, which would become a center of alt-right thought.”

  4. 6:14 probably won't like this article.

    The alt-right movement goes full Nazi as Steve Bannon prepares to enter the White House
    New York Daily News

    I have to connect these disturbing dots for you.

    Steve Bannon was recently appointed as Chief Strategist for President-elect Donald Trump. It was simply a promotion for Bannon, who served as CEO of Trump's presidential campaign.

    Bannon, though, was not an experienced political strategist. He was the head of Breitbart News. Just a few months ago, he openly bragged that under his leadership he transformed Breitbart into "the platform of the alt-right movement." Those are his words — not from some distant past, but from this past July.

    I've said it many times, but the alt-right movement is simply the KKK without the hoods. They are skinheads with suits and ties. They simply chose a new name, but are fueled by the same hate and the same philosophy as previous white supremacist and Neo-Nazi movements.

    This weekend, it all came to a full boil. Richard Spencer, who coined the term "alt-right" and is seen as one of its founders and public intellectuals, openly wore his Neo-Nazi heart on his sleeve.

    I can hardly believe what I am about to quote.

    At an Alt-Right conference being held, of all places, in a federal building in Washington D.C., Spencer didn't even attempt to hide his bigotry and anti-Semitism.

    According to the NY Times, He railed against Jews and, with a smile, quoted Nazi propaganda in the original German. America, he said, belonged to white people, whom he called the "children of the sun," a race of conquerors and creators who had been marginalized but now, in the era of President-elect Donald J. Trump, were "awakening to their own identity."

    As he finished, several audience members had their arms outstretched in a Nazi salute. When Mr. Spencer, or perhaps another person standing near him at the front of the room — it was not clear who — shouted, "Heil the people! Heil victory," the room shouted it back.

The majoriety of other news sources, no comment. Steve Bannon employs more "Jews" than Hollywood has shareholders. The alt left, pathetic and sore losers. The left viewed this election as a contest; it's over. Hillary lost. Life goes on.

      You keep up the name calling. In the meantime, the "awesome" Trump team is going to renegotiate trade deals, commit $1 trillion to infrastructure, reduce the tax burden on the American people, stop endless overseas wars, require NATO partners to honor their commitment to spend 2% of GDP on defense, seal the border as a prelude to citizenship for the illegal aliens already in the country, and get us out of an Iranian Nuclear deal that opens the funding spigot on enemies of our most trusted ally Israel.

  9. Both the far right and far left are equally bad. There is no compromise with you people. That's why there has always been fighting in the so called holy land. Those of us that are trying to just get along are tired of watching the left and right fight it out to the destruction of peaceful living. Who will be cleaning the homes and yards of the rich and famous? Never have seen the homes of the nazi and kkk types, maybe they do their own work.
