Chafed Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer Thinks University of Florida Students Were Mean to Him

Mod: He truly is the darling of the alt-right. But when chanting University of Florida students shut down his speech there last week, Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer couldn't wail loudly enough about how mean they all were, even depriving him of his freedom of speech. That said, The Tattler would like to take a brief moment to inform poor Mr. Spencer that his mistreatment in Gainesville is minor when compared with the way Americans used to deal with Nazis. The picture below being a good example of that.


Thousands Of Protesters Show Up In Florida To Drown Out Richard Spencer’s Hate (Huffington Post link): Thousands of people turned out on Thursday at the University of Florida to protest an afternoon speech by a prominent white supremacist, making their message clear: Richard Spencer, and those like him, are not welcome.

Well before Spencer’s speech at a place that did not invite him, a mass of protesters was on hand to greet him. By the time Spencer took the stage at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, he was met by a small group of supporters and a larger group of activists.

Spencer was routinely shouted down as he praised President Donald Trump, expressed concern that the man accused of killing Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, Virginia, this summer won’t get a fair trial, and defended his ideology. But mostly, Spencer complained to the crowd for heckling him and drowning out his remarks.

Mod: Richard probably wouldn't enjoy reading this next story, either.

Billionaire investor launches multi-million dollar campaign to impeach Trump: 'This president is mentally unstable' (The Independent link): Big money is pouring into the effort in impeach Donald Trump. Billionaire Democratic activist Tom Steyer is continuing his crusade against the president by funding a national campaign of television and digital advertisements calling for Mr. Trump's removal from office.

Video link here

The spot warns that Mr Trump has “brought us to the brink of nuclear war, obstructed justice at the FBI” and has “taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations” in violation of the constitution. It pushes viewers to sign a petition endorsing Mr Trump’s impeachment.

“People in Congress and his own administration know this president is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. And they do nothing”, Mr Steyer says in the spot. “Join us and tell your Member of Congress that they have a moral responsibility to stop doing what’s political and start doing what’s right”.

A representative for Mr Steyer said the advertisements would be running in all 50 states. Without providing specific numbers, the representative said the effort included an “eight-figure” television ad buy and a “seven-figure” outlay for digital ads.

In seeking Mr Trump's impeachment, Mr Steyer is opening his wallet to support an outcome several Democratic members of Congress have publicly backed. Mr Steyer last week sent letters to every Democrat in of Congress, all 50 governors and thousands of mayors urging them to support impeachment.

Calling Mr Trump a “clear and present threat to the United States of America”, the letter also warns Democrats that they must be responsive to a restive liberal base and seeks to inject the impeachment conversation into upcoming midterm elections. Arguing that impeachment could be a viable outcome if Democrats retake Congress in 2018, it urges officeholders to “make clear where every Democrat stands on the issue of the highest import to the lives of every single American now, before those elections happen”.

While a growing number of Republican officials have openly broken with Mr Trump - including longtime ally Sen Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican who warned of Mr Trump hurtling the country toward “World War III” - convincing a Republican-controlled Congress to remove a Republican president remains a long shot.

Mod: I wonder if any Mayors in our area received such a letter from Tom Steyer, and if this topic will be agendised soon for any local City Councils to consider. If you wish to sign the petition to impeach Trump click on this link. Here is a screenshot of the site.

  1. Tom Steyer is a hypocrite. President Trump does not smoke cigarettes.
    Wouldn't his money be put into better use, to build hospitals and housing for families fighting cancer from carcinogens?

    1. Spencer likely believes that UF students should have been required to listen to his evil speech, and cheer loudly.

      I'm sick of people who whine about their free speech being violated, when they're really mad about people disagreeing with them.

    2. He exercised his right to speak. The students exercised their right to speak as well.

      You see, Mr. Spencer, no one is obligated to listen to you.

  3. Even in his dealings with other heads of state, Hitler’s unique sense of humor never failed him. After signing the Munich Agreement, in 1938, Hitler broke the treaty less than a year later by invading Prague. Incensed, the British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, telephoned Hitler and demanded to know why German troops had crossed the agreed-upon border. Without missing a beat, Hitler replied, “To get to the other side.”

  4. Even in his final days in his bunker, Hitler entertained his Nazi colleagues with a near-constant stream of jokes, many of the gallows variety. In one that he was particularly fond of telling, Hitler and his lawyer appear before St. Peter at the gates of Heaven. After St. Peter reads a long list of charges against Hitler, the Führer’s lawyer launches into an impassioned defense. Finally, the lawyer rests his case and St. Peter speaks up: “Hitler can come in, but you have to go to Hell.”
    “Hell?” the lawyer asks. “What did I do?”
    “You went to law school,” St. Peter says.

    3. There is a trucker who hates lawyers so much he always runs them over with his truck whenever he sees one. One day he sees a priest hitchhiking and decides to give a ride to the holy man. As they go along the road, the trucker spots a lawyer by the side of the road and steers to run him over. At the last minute he remembers the priest in the truck and swerves away hoping to avoid judgment of his sins.
      He says "I'm sorry father, I don't know what came over me!"
      The priest replies, "Don't worry, I got him with the door!"

  9. When businesses make huge profits and pay wages that reflect labor's contribution to profits and pay their share of taxes, they help individual workers, their families, their neighborhoods, their cities and their states and the overall economy of this great nation. Everybody benefits; business produce products and provide services; workers have the resources to buy the companies' goods and services. On the other hand, when businesses make huge profits and pay minimal or less wages and little or no taxes, workers cannot support themselves, they need charity or government subsidies to feed, clothe, house and educate themselves and their children. Their neighborhoods become rundown; they have little hope that they can provide a better life for themselves and their children in the future. Cities and states are impoverished. Workers become apathetic and do not participate in citizenship activities like voting and holding office. A nation comprised of 1% obscenely wealthy oligarch and 99% minimum wage or less workers is not an optimum environment for nurturing and sustaining democracy. Government becomes a tool which the 1% use to gain and maintain control over the 99%. Workers turn on each other, jostling for the favors of their rulers. National life becomes coarse, divisive, mean, depressing. A very few obscenely wealthy oligarchs feel more kinship with each other and the other vulture capitalists of the world than with their nation's powerless and impoverished masses. Can America survive as the premier example of democracy, the hope of the world, the world's model for the empowerment of labor over capital, one man, one vote, government of, by and for the 99%?

  14. 10:05am. What part of Medicare was cut? The over saturated advertising we hear and see from media?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. These parts;
      The GOP Senate budget calls for "$473 billion in cuts from Medicare over 10 years." That would be a painful blow to the over 55 million Americans -- including my own mother, and maybe yours, too -- who depend on this very popular program to manage the cost of their health care.
      Add to that, the GOP budget cuts over $1 trillion from Medicaid over the next decade. This is the very definition of cruel. Medicaid is a lifeline for over 70 million Americans -- including the disabled, poor, children and, once again, senior citizens. In fact, seniors would arguably bear the brunt of the GOP's cuts because Medicaid covers 60% of those in nursing homes. So some seniors may see both their Medicaid and Medicare benefits slashed.

  19. Benjamin Wittes, a friend of former FBI Director James Comey, said that he's unable to say how far President Trump is willing to push the legal bounds of the presidency because it would involve "looking into his soul" — and he's not quite sure Trump has one.
