Patrick Slattery and Eric Striker talk about the ideas of Yukio Mishima and how they relate to the crisis of masculinity in Japan and in the West. Also they went into the Harvey Weinstein affair as an example of an intentional attack on whites by the Jewish elite. Originally aired October 14, 2017
The rally in early August was purportedly organized to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate soldier Robert E. Lee from downtown Charlottesville. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) declared a state of emergency after the white supremacists clashed violently with counterprotesters, injuring at least 35 people and killing 32-year-old paralegal Heather Heyer.
On Saturday, white nationalist leader Richard Spencer led a group holding torches to the park and livestreamed the rally from his Twitter account. The images were reminiscent of the group’s previous rally in the city, when they held tiki torches and chanted “Blood and soil” as they marched.
“We have a place in this country,” Spencer told his supporters in a livestream. “We have a place in this conversation. We have the right to exist.”
The governor responded to the rally Saturday evening on Twitter.
“We are monitoring this situation as we continue to oppose these racists and their message of hate,” McAuliffe wrote.
The group sang the Confederate Civil War song “I Wish I Was In Dixie Land,” and chanted phrases like “the South will rise again” and “Russia is our friend.”
Spencer delivered a speech filled with his familiar rhetoric, and he claimed that the U.S. was founded by what he calls “white culture.”
“We define this country, not anyone else,” Spencer told his supporters.
The event brought out about three dozen white nationalists, reported NBC 29′s Matt Talhelm, who also said there was police presence at the rally.
The group disbanded after Spencer’s speech. “We will be back,” they chanted.
Dr. Patrick Slattery and Reverend Mark Dankof talk Russia, Charlottesville, and DACA. Rev. Dankof reports on the evolving situation in Syria, which has seen Turkey’s Erdogan switch sides from the Zio American-backed Team ISIS to join Team Civilization, lead by Vladimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad and including Iran and Hezbollah. He also analyzes the Russian response to NATO’s massing of its troops on the Russian border.
Then the look at the fallout from Charlottesville and what lessons can be learned. Dr. Slattery reminds listeners that apologists for black animosity towards whites insist that racism is prejudice combined with institutional power. However, the completely unfair attack on the white participants in the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally from the media, the business world, and Congress shows that it is whites who lack institutional power.
Finally the move to DACA. They agree the idea that nations control their borders and expel those who enter illegally is a given for every non-white country on earth, but something that is now beyond the pale in white countries.
Outro song “Waiting on the Robert E. Lee” remarkably free of any copyright.
Today Dr. Duke tore apart Congress over its resolution condemning “white supremacists” for the violence in Charlottesville when even the Washington Post and New York Times have had to confess that the violence was instigated and perpetrated by Antifa. He pointed out the similarities between the Zio media’s misrepresenting the Charlottesville car crash with the Travon Martin case. For example, in both instances, they used very old pictures of the deceased in order to portray false images of how the people looked — in Travon’s case to make him look harmless and in Heather’s case to make her look healthy.
Dr. Slattery joined the show and made laid out the evidence that Heather Heyer did in fact die from a heart attack, and not from being struck by a car. He went on to say that fundamental issue is that Jews look hu-white to “Normies.” If you accept Jews as just whites, then whites do rule the country. Whites run the media. Whites run Hollywood. Whites run the banks. If you accept Jews as whites, then you cannot make the case the whites are being discriminated against. But when you separate Jews from the rest of the hu-whites, then everything changes.
This was another great show.

A group of 100 student activists at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville have covered the statue of its founder Thomas Jefferson with a black tarp, calling him a racist and a rapist and sending a list of demands to the administration.
Chanting “F*** White Supremacy” and “Black Lives Matter,” the activists covered up the statue of one of America’s founding fathers on Tuesday evening.
A cardboard sign held up against the shrouded figure by one of the protesters read “TJ is a racist rapist,” a reference to Jefferson being a slave owner who allegedly raped his domestic slave Sally Hemmings.
A white sheet left draped on the Rotunda read “Black Lives Matter F*** White Supremacy.” A sign at the base of the pedestal read, “No Nazi,” while another had a drawing of a statue being removed, with the caption, “Tear ‘Em Down.”
Tuesday night’s demonstration, held in pouring rain, was at the same site that a month ago became the rallying point for a white nationalist ‘Unite the Right’ rally, according to Richmond Times Dispatch.
“It was done as a solidarity action with Charlottesville after the events that transpired on August 11 and August 12,” senior Anelle Mensah told the UVA student paper, the Cavalier Daily. “It was to commemorate and honor the students and the community members that were here surrounding the statue on August 11, and the folks that were severely injured, the folks that died – such as Heather Heyer – on August 12.”
One student said the rally was not organized by one specific group and that many of the attendees were from a variety of organizations.
Some students have been critical about University president Teresa Sullivan’s perceived inaction on the night of August 11, when white nationalists marched through the UVA campus chanting and carrying tiki torches.
After the statue was shrouded, tensions rose when counter-protesters began to take pictures of the event. The Cavalier Daily reported that university police were observed disarming a man who had a firearm. He was apparently handcuffed and escorted out of the area and into a police car.
The protesters presented a list of ten demands to the university administration, including the removal of “Confederate plaques” from the Rotunda, and requiring classes on “white supremacy, colonization, and slavery as they directly relate to Thomas Jefferson, the University, and the city of Charlottesville,”WVIR-TV reported.
Another demand was that the university re-invest a $1,000 donation received from the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in 1921,”adjusted for inflation, into existing UVa and Charlottesville multicultural Organizations.”
Students also demanded that the number of African-American students, currently at 6.4 percent, be boosted to 19.6 percent to reflect the state demographics. A similar demand was made in terms of African-American professors.
The Jefferson statue represents white supremacy and needs to be “re-contextualized,” the activists said, while other buildings on campus “named after prominent white supremacists, eugenicists, or slaveholders should be renamed after people of marginalized groups.”
Jefferson authored the Declaration of Independence of the thirteen colonies in 1776, and served as the third president of the United States (1801-1809). He also founded the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and the layout he created for the school has become a model for almost all US universities since.
Kevin Westfield, a junior, said he believed that certain aspect of history, such as Jefferson’s legacy should be studied ‒ but not cherished.
“Let’s really talk about the history and the heritage that you’re holding onto so proudly,” Westfield told the Cavalier. “If we can really analyze that and look at it with a critical lens, then that sounds like an amazing things for us to facilitate – but if we’re not going to do that, and we’re just going to have it on this super beautifully ambiguous display that says nothing, that has a single narrative, that doesn’t really say anything… Then what heritage are you holding on to? You’re holding on to a false narrative.”
Several people eventually took down the shroud.
The Republican Party of Virginia condemned the activists.
“The vandalism of the Thomas Jefferson statue at the University of Virginia is the next step in the extreme left’s movement to erase our history. The defacing of our historical monuments is not free speech, it is a criminal offense, plain and simple,” party chairman John Whitbeck said in a statement. “We cannot tolerate lawlessness and extreme political correctness masking as free speech any longer.”
On Monday, Jennifer Rubin was at it again as the allegedly right-leaning Washington Post columnist and regular MSNBC guest was trashing fellow conservatives both on MSNBC and on her “Right Turn” blog at WashingtonPost.com. In a Monday morning blog post — titled “Ending DACA Would Be Trump’s Most Evil Act” — Rubin excoriated the Republican party as the party of “white grievance” and as the “party of Charlottesville.” She then declared that the GOP “deserves not defense but extinction.”
As she appeared on MSNBC Live later in the day, she oddly suggested that President Donald Trump urge Congress to attach the extension of DACA to important legislation like Harvey relief or the debt ceiling increase.
At about 2:17 p.m. ET, MSNBC host Katy Tur read from part of Rubin’s blog post about Trump’s expected decision to end the DACA program. Quoting Rubin, Tur recounted:
“The debate, if there is one, is over whether to disappoint his rabid anti-immigrant base or to, as his inclination, double down on a losing hand.”
Rubin immediately got to recommending that Trump link DACA to Harvey or the debt ceiling as she began:
I think if he really wanted to save these people, if he really meant all those pretty words about how he loves the dreamers, then there could have been a lot of things he could have done, including telling Congress to pass this as part of the Harvey package and as part of the debt limit increase – if he really wanted to push things.
After recalling that a number of Republican attorneys general were threatening to sue the Trump administration over DACA, she theorized that the move by the Trump administration was meant to be “read meat” for the Republican base.
She spent more time complaining about Trump, and then brought up the Charlottesville white racist rally and the President’s pardon of former Arizona:sheriff Joe Arpaio as she added:
I think people will focus on Trump, particularly as it comes right after Charlottesville, right after the pardon of the Maricopa sheriff who practiced racial profiling and abused suspected immigrants. He is going to take the blame for this, and, frankly, I don’t think Congress is going to be able to handle it. They could if they wanted to.
She again brought up the idea of attaching DACA to the debt ceiling as she continued:
<<< Please support MRC’s NewsBusters team with a tax-deductible contribution today. >>>
They could attach it to funding at the end of September — they could attach it to the debt ceiling — and I think, as a result, not only are you going to have 800,000 plus people really put in grave distress, but you’ll have employers, you’ll have universities, you’ll have communities that are really pretty much up in arms about this. I think it’s the worst possible decision at the worst possible time.
Host Tur then read a little more of Rubin’s words slamming the GOP from her blog post:
Yeah, in your op-ed, you say, “The party of Lincoln has become the party of Charlottesville and Arpaio.”
Not mentioned on the air was that the full sentence — which was how the blog post concluded — asserted that the GOP “deserves not defense but extinction.” Rubin:
The party of Lincoln has become the party of Charlottesville, Arpaio, DACA repeal and the Muslim ban. Embodying the very worst sentiments and driven by irrational anger, it deserves not defense by extinction.
A man attending the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month fired his gun in the direction of a black counterprotester who was holding a torch, and police in their vicinity did not seem to respond.
As seen in the footage below, a man in a blue sleeveless shirt, a green vest and a bandana on his head pulls out a gun and aims it at a counterprotester, who is off camera and appears to be holding a makeshift lit torch. The first man appears to yell a racial slur at the black man, then fires the gun toward the ground in the direction of the counterprotesters.
The shooter then leaves the scene by joining a line of white supremacist protesters and walking past law enforcement officers, who were standing behind metal barricades about 10 feet away.
Police arrested Richard Wilson Preston, 52, in connection with the incident in the video above, the Daily Progress reported on Saturday. Wilson was charged with discharging a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school during the so-called “Unite The Right” rally on Aug. 12. He is in custody in Towson, Maryland.
Rosia Parker, a Charlottesville activist who was there when the man fired his gun, told the New York Times that police did nothing when the shooting occurred.
“We all heard it and ran ― I know damn well they heard it,” Parker told the Times, referencing the police who were standing behind the barricades. “They never moved.”
Corinne Geller, a spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police, told the newspaper that troopers did not react to the shooting because they couldn’t hear the gun being fired over “the loud volume of the crowd yelling and chanting, drums and music.”
“Had any one of our troopers witnessed that incident they would have immediately acted just as they did for the other four arrests made during the weekend,” Geller told the Times.
In the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville, the ACLU of Virginia has called on Charlottesville police to release body camera footage from the rally showing any civil rights violations similar to the one in the video.
According to the ACLU’s official statement, the video of the shooting is “consistent with our regular calls” for law enforcement agencies to release footage from the protests “that depicts any incident of public concern.”
The video was discovered while ACLU staffers were reviewing footage that staff and volunteers documented at the Charlottesville rally. The group turned in the video to the FBI on Aug. 17 and sent copies to the Virginia State Police and Charlottesville Police Department on Aug. 20. A person familiar with the video told HuffPost the ACLU refrained from making the video public until an arrest was made.
The Charlottesville Police Department and the Charlottesville communications director did not return HuffPost’s request for comment.
Only eight people were arrested on the day that violence broke out between white supremacists, fringe groups and anti-racism protesters in Charlottesville, according to the Times. Among those arrested was James Fields, a 20-year-old white supremacist who killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injured dozens of others when he rammed his car into a group of counterprotesters.
Two other arrests were made in connection with another violent crime caught on video that took place during the rally. Police arrested Daniel Patrick Borden, 18, and Alex Michael Ramos, 33, in connection with the beating of Deandre Harris, a black 20-year-old who was protesting the white supremacy rally.
A mob of white supremacists beat Harris with metal poles in a parking lot near police headquarters during the rally, leaving Harris bloodied, with a broken wrist, deep gashes to the head and a chipped tooth. The assault on Harris was filmed and shared widely on social media.
Five days after a white supremacist carried out a terrorist attack in Charlottesville, a Democratic politician in Virginia sent out a tweet rebuking “white evangelical leaders” for worshiping and idolizing their “whiteness,” calling it “blasphemy of God’s word.”
Tom Perriello, a devout Catholic who ran for governor but lost in the primary, sent a series of tweets over the next few days calling on white Christian leaders to forcefully denounce white supremacy as an affront to their faith. And he mocked one of President Trump’s most prominent evangelical supporters, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr., by satirically tweeting that Falwell was under demonic possession.
“The devil has his grip so firmly around @JerryFalwellJr that I’m praying for his exorcism. #Repent,” Perriello tweeted on Aug. 19. He sent a tweet the following day, a Sunday, asking churchgoers to speak up in their congregations if their pastors did not say anything about white supremacy.
Perriello’s remarks were answered with an extraordinarily personal attack from the Virginia state Republican organization, which also took it upon itself this week to defend Confederate monuments from Democratic iconoclasm. And they illuminated an increasingly heated divide among Christians over how to respond to the wave of neo-Confederate symbolism that has been building in the days since Charlottesville.
The day after Perriello thumbed his fourth tweet in four days, on Monday, Aug. 21, someone at the Republican Party of Virginia evidently decided they had heard enough from Perriello. The state party’s Twitter account responded to Perriello in terms almost never seen from an official organ of a political party.
“Let’s not mince words: you are a Christian-hating bigot,” the RPV account said. “We were better off when you were out of the country #LeftWingBigot.” The reference to Perriello being out of the country was a nod to his time as a presidential envoy to the Congo during the Obama administration.
Virginia Republican state chair John Whitbeck responded to Perriello by tweeting, “Is this real? Did his account get hacked?”
The party also issued a press release condemning Perriello’s tweets, saying: “It is never acceptable to slander and smear a religious group. We demand that Tom Perriello immediately apologize to Jerry Falwell Jr. and Evangelical Christians.”
Falwell Jr. tweeted out the Republican press release, which also labeled Perriello’s comments as “bigoted.”
RPV Condemns Bigoted Remarks By Tom Perriello – Republican Party of Virginia – Home of the GOP in Virginia https://t.co/9vD5WmXjbu
However, it’s hard to see bigotry in Perriello’s comments, which he intended as a fairly straightforward criticism of the failure of some Christians to condemn white supremacy after the public displays of racism and the murder in Charlottesville.
Perriello spoke as a Christian to others of the same faith, calling on them to follow its teachings. He told Yahoo News that his tweet about Falwell “was more metaphorical than theological.”
The Virginia GOP’s tweets, by contrast, were a far more significant theological judgment about an individual, Perriello, by a political party that as a constitutional matter does not define or organize itself theologically. By calling Perriello “anti-Christian,” a faceless political organization essentially judged his faith to be insincere. That was a far harsher statement than Perriello’s comment that Christian leaders were misapplying or not applying their faith to their actions.
Perriello added in an interview that the “bigotry” label was essentially meaningless.
“Some in the Republican Party want to water down the word bigot because they don’t want to answer for some of the things that the head of their party is doing,” he said.
“It’s very clear that I’m speaking from a theological position that is shared by Christians across the spectrum, which is that white supremacy is heretical to the Christian teaching of people being made in the image of god,” Perriello said.
A state GOP spokesman spoke with Yahoo News on the agreement he not be quoted, but executive director John Findlay did not respond to Yahoo News’ request through the spokesman for an interview.
The party followed the criticism of Perriello with an attack a few days later on the Democratic candidate for governor, Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, all but accusing him of being a traitor to his race for supporting the removal of Confederate monuments.
The state party’s Twitter account wrote Thursday that Northam had “turned his back on his own family’s heritage in demanding monument removal.” Findlay told the Washington Post that the party made this comment “because [Northam’s] great-grandfather fought for the side of the Confederacy and was wounded during the Civil War.” That was implicit in the use of the word “heritage,” which is widely understood by all parties in the South to refer to secession and the Civil War. Northam presumably understood this, and if he turned his back on that aspect of his “heritage,” it was because he believes that in fighting to maintain slavery his great-grandfather chose the wrong side.
Our previous tweets were interpreted in a way we never intended. We apologize and reiterate our denunciation of racism in all forms.
The party later deleted the tweet and said it had been misinterpreted.
Perriello spoke often and openly about his faith when he was elected to Congress in 2008, about how it motivated him to pursue a career in public service. But he mentioned faith less in his run for governor earlier this year.
He has remained politically active since losing the primary to Northam, who is running against Republican nominee Ed Gillespie.
And Perriello’s rhetoric in the wake of Charlottesville was especially charged with religious and moral language.
“Ponder Republican Party of VA calling preachers condemning white supremacy ‘Christian hating bigot(ry)’” Perriello tweeted after the RPV had criticized him, adding the hashtag “#JesusLoves.”
Perriello told Yahoo News he did not think he had been “silenced” about his faith during the gubernatorial primary by a Democratic electorate that is increasingly secular, but said that he was “putting an emphasis on this now” for a reason.
“As someone who has worked in war zones and post-conflict zones, there are moments where there is a particular importance of moral leadership, and that comes from the faith community, though not solely,” he said.
“This is a time that calls for prophetic witness,” Perriello said. “What we’re looking at now is bigger than partisanship. In a primary you’re trying to win an election. Right now we’re trying to hold the country together.”
Perriello’s talk of “prophetic witness” was similar in tone to a statement published Friday by a group of African-American faith leaders and activists from the Christian tradition, including the Rev. Dwight McKissic, the Texas pastor who mounted a campaign to pass a resolution condemning white supremacy at the Southern Baptist’s annual convention this year, which passed after overcoming initial resistance. The statement, called the “Charlottesville Declaration,” read in part:
“Judgment begins with the household of God, which has been particularly instrumental in the creation and maintenance of racial inequity. Because of this we do not need cheap grace, cheap peace, cheap reconciliation. We need a revival of spirit, a revolution of values, and the abundance of righteous justice in this land. Now is the time for the church to again be the moral compass for this nation.”
“We call upon white leaders and members of the Evangelical church to condemn in the strongest terms the white supremacist ideology that has long existed in the church and our society,” the statement said, adding that condemnation should be not just “in words only, but also in deeds.”
The declaration was co-authored by Jemar Tisby, president of the Reformed African-American Network, and C.J. Rhodes, a pastor in Jackson, Miss., and religious life director at Alcorn State University.
Also on Friday, a group of over 90 “Christian scholars” from a wide variety of accredited colleges — including three from Falwell’s Liberty University — signed a statement stating that the events in Charlottesville “make it clear once again that racism is not a thing of the past, something that brothers and sisters of color have been trying to tell the white church for years.”
It went on: “We also recognize that white-majority churches and denominations have too often lagged in discussions of racial injustice and inequality, or have even been sources of the perpetuation of white cultural dominance and racial injustice. Because of that history, we pray that America’s churches and Christians will renew their commitment to practical, proactive steps of racial reconciliation and friendship in our cities and towns.”
[8/27/17/ JAYSON VELEY] For days now, the news networks have been endlessly talking about the events that occurred recently in Charlottesville, Virginia. Allegedly, the removal of a statue of confederate leader Robert E. Lee sparked outrage among white nationalists in the region, which in turn caused an uprising of Antifa activists. While the media has been focusing almost all of their attention on these two groups over the past few days, one thing that is not being heavily reported on is the police, and how courageous they were in stepping in to try to put an end to the violence and lawlessness.
On Saturday, Fox News reporter Doug McKelway was in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he reported that the police had actually been called off when the protests started to turn violent. “But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, ‘Where you going?’ He said, ‘We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.’ They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to,” McKelway reported.
Indeed, the police most likely could have put the violence to rest if they hadn’t allegedly been instructed to stand down. However, it would be rather inappropriate to blame the police in this scenario, considering the fact that they were at least willing to confront the rioters when most other people wouldn’t have been. It is important to keep in mind that police officers are not machines. They are real people that live real lives outside of their line of work, and their safety is something that we all should keep in mind, regardless of whether they’re making a simple traffic stop or are confronting rioters in the streets.
“We were spread thin once the groups dispersed,” explained Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas. “Gradually the crowd sizes increased along with aggressiveness and hostility of attendees towards one another.” Thomas went on to explain that what made it particularly difficult to put the violence to rest was that many individuals would strike at each other, but then disappear back into the volatile crowd. “Absolutely I have regrets. We lost three lives this weekend … it was a tragic, tragic weekend,” Thomas concluded, referring to the deaths of Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates of the Virginia State Police, and Charlottesville resident Heather Heyer.
But police in Charlottesville, Virginia, aren’t the only ones who were forced to suit up and face violent rioters lately. Just days ago, police in Seattle responded to a large crowd of Antifa activists, who showed up at a rally held by the pro-Trump Patriot Prayer Group. Video footage of the event depicts the Left-wing extremists waving Soviet flags, burning American flags, spraying silly string at police officers, and even tossing fireworks through the streets. The signs that they held included messages like “Go back to Europe,” “Kill Nazis” and “Die Nazi scum.” Police were forced to respond to the rioters by dispensing pepper spray into the crowds, and several arrests were made.
Needless to say, America remains heavily divided. Individuals on both the Left and the Right (though primarily on the Left) somehow feel as though rioting in the streets is justified as long as it is done for a good cause, whether that’s social justice, income equality, or resistance to what they perceive to be fascism. Sadly, as our country becomes more and more divided, those that are in charge of enforcing the law will be forced to constantly put their lives on the line to keep the rest of the law-abiding citizens safe. Please keep them in your prayers as we all work to heal a divided nation.
