While the Trump administration has been busy trying to justify placing so-called Black extremist groups at the top of the FBI's most dangerous terrorists list, the real terrorists in America are exposing themselves every day.
In West Virginia, a group of correctional cadets gave the Nazi salute while posing for a class photo.
NBC News reports the Nazi salute began two to three weeks into training as one that the cadets have described as a "sign of respect" for an individual identified as "Instructor Byrd."
Instructor Byrd told investigators she was unaware of the “historical or racial implications of the gesture” stating that it was just a greeting.
"As I said from the beginning, I condemn the photo of Basic Training Class 18 in the strongest possible terms," Governor Jim Justice said in a statement.
"This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated on my watch in any agency of state government."
BBC reports the cadets have been fired.
What's important to point out is how embolden racists have become over the past few years. Some may think that the Nazi salutes mean nothing in the grand scheme of things but the fact that Trump is openly calling for a civil war makes this a dangerous situation.
For those of you who may not know who Richard Spencer is, he is the leader of the Alt-right/White nationalists movement. Spencer is the man responsible for the Charlottesville fiasco which ended in the tragic death of Heather Heyer.
On my podcast, I have talked about Richard Spencer and the White Nationalist movement detailing it as a more clean-cut version of the KKK. I have been told by White people that support the Alt-Righters
that they are not racist and are just simply embracing their culture. Today, leaked audio of the leader of the Alt-right, "Richard Spencer" going on a racist tirade in which he bragged about his ancestors putting people in slavery.
This is what Richard Spencer said in the audio: “Little fucking kikes. They get ruled by people like me. Little fucking octaroons. My ancestors fucking enslaved those little pieces of fucking shit.”
Later, he continued, “Those pieces of shit get ruled by people like me. They look up and see a face like mine looking down at them.”
Richard Spencer responded to the leaked audio on social media, claiming he did not recall making these comments and that he needed to listen to the audio before making a public statement.
Get this, for the first time in U.S history, White Nationalism will be seen as a major threat in America by Homeland Security. Amazing right?
"Today, the United States faces an evolving threat environment, and a threat of terrorism and targeted violence within our borders that is more diverse than at any time since the 9/11 attacks," - Secretary Kevin McAleenan
In a report by DHS, the increase in white nationalist rhetoric is highlighted. Most notably, social media has exposed what would be closeted racism.
"Similar to how ISIS inspired and connected with potential radical Islamist terrorists, white supremacist violent extremists connect with like-minded individuals online," the report states.
Recently, I did a podcast speaking about the Trump Administration putting Black extremism at the top of the list as far as terrorism is concerned. Although I don't recall Black Lives Matter members being involved in mass shootings, yet black extremists have been put on the same level as Al Queda according to the FBI.
Gregory Cheadle is the man Donald Trump called his African-American on the campaign trail to become the 45th President of the United States.
When talking to CNN, Mr. Cheadle said this about the incident:
"I’m more critical of it today than I was back then because today I wonder to what extent he said that for political gain or for attention.”
Cheadle has publicly announced that he is has left the Republican party. Although Cheadle stopped short of calling Trump a racist, he did say Trump has a white supremacy complex.
“President Trump is a rich guy who is mired in white privilege to the extreme,” he added. “Republicans are too sheepish to call him out on anything and they are afraid of losing their positions and losing any power themselves.” Cheadle said
It took Cheadle two years to figure out that Trump is a white supremacist.
What the hell was Cheadle thinking for the past two years? Trump received the support of the KKK and every white nationalist group in America and Europe. What more proof did Mr. Cheadle need?
Gregory Cheadle said he made the decision to leave the Republican party after Trump verbally attacked the four congresswomen and Elijah Cummings.
Cheadle is now set to run for congress as an Independent.
As it was admitted by a KKK member, White supremacist organizations have their members everywhere in America. The KKK member gleefully stated that there KKK members in politics, some of them are Judges, some of them are lawyers but the main thing that stuck out was how happy he was to admit that a lot of them are in law enforcement.
