The Reappearance of the Swastika

In yesterday's Washington Post the big headline on Page One was "Trump nominees map out plans for tax revamp, trade." Because it's an election year, see, and the new guy is coming in and there will be parades and balls and transitional stuff. It happens every time we get a new President, cabinet members, policies. Nothing to see here.

Back in the Metro section on page B-6, after the PG County Councilman who crashed his car drunk, after Alexandria Confederate symbols to stay for now, after rail-car reliability is a priority, after the obit for the guy who invented the Big Mac, was a story from Montgomery County: Swastika found in high school restroom.
The incident is the second at Quince Orchard since October, when a caustic substance was used on the football field to create the image of a swastika, according to Montgomery County police. An investigation is still underway, police said.
My own reaction was a little surprising to me. The question came into my mind -- why is this in the newspaper?

Of course the swastika was a despised symbol when I was young, after World War II. My father was one of the lucky ones, he was brought back from the brink of death after he was shot down fighting Nazis; he was later able to walk with a cane. We had to help him put his socks on as kids, that was something we learned when we were big enough. Lots of dads had scars. We didn't like Nazis and swastikas back then. We still sang "Whistle while you work, Hitler is a jerk..." years after the war. But, you know, things change, now people walk around with telephones in their pocket, TV is in color and some of the new screens almost look real, I haven't seen a typewriter in ages.

My father's generation is just about gone, and a new one has taken over. Of course swastikas used to be a bad thing. But nowadays Nazis, the KKK, swastikas, untruths, racial and religious prejudice and violence are as American as pussy-grabbing.

So a kid scrawled a swastika in the bathroom, he was just expressing his patriotism. He supports our newly-elected President. Why is it in the paper, again?

I wonder how long the newspapers will bother to carry this kind of story at all. The Post quotes some old-fashioned grown-ups sputtering about "hate-based acts" and "will not be tolerated." Then the paper does a smart thing and saves space by listing off a lot of incidents in one article, so they don't have to keep running dog-bites-man over and over again, month after month. October thirtieth, November tenth, November eleventh, November fourteenth... "Our schools must continue to be safe places for students to learn," some lib said. Someone else was quoted in the lamestream Post saying, "They’ve lost their shame."

It'll be in a Saturday Night Live skit next, and then on South Park, or maybe South Park will have swastika-scrawlers first. Comedians will joke about swastika graffiti, at first in self-righteous tones but pretty soon they will be joke-admitting that they also sometimes scrawl swastikas and the crowd will laugh sympathetically, remembering the last fence or wall they scrawled swastikas on. Eventually people will forget that the swastika was once considered a negative symbol, or they will forget why, the news stories will have long disappeared, the jokes won't be edgy or funny anymore, and the transition will be complete.

Jim, Jim, nothing's changed

this has been going on for years

you know well that you go into most male rest rooms and you also see all kinds of crap written on stall walls but the most common has always been gay stuff and swastikas

every society has its sick element

the media is simply elevating and very minor sick element in an attempt to discredit a President who scares the heck out of them because he doesn't pay homage to their inflated sense of importance like traditional politicians always have

they tell him he has to give them all his tax returns, something that is confidential by law

he ignores them and wins anyway

so, they feel threatened because someone has proved they actually have no power and are yet another emperor without clothes

this has long been a tactic of the gay agenda

in addition to a relentless assault on the language, trying to transform the meaning of words, they have always pursued the transformation of images to their cause

back in another millennium, when I was in college, the campus gay rights group decided everyone should wear blue jeans on Tuesday to show support for gay "rights"

then, Tuesday came and there tears in the eyes of gay activists as they gazed on a sea of blue jeans across the school grounds

Wyatt/bad anonymous has repeatedly said "There are many situations where lying is appropriate".

He tried to troll us prior to the election by falsely claiming trump was a lifelong supporter of gay rights. Election night he claimed gays were celebrating Trump's win.

The next day he said Trump's election meant "the gay agenda is on the run".

Then he said "Trump is already proving to be a gay friendly president".

Then he said "The only people for whom its going to be dark days ahead are gays and people who support gay marriage".

Wyatt's getting whiplash from all his flip flops on Trump being "gay friendly".

"Jim, Jim, nothing's changed

this has been going on for years"

And yet there has been a widely reported increase of hate crimes in the US since Trump entered campaign for President.

Md. Lt. Gov. Rutherford’s tweet about hate and racism draws concerns

"Several Jewish leaders and elected officials in Montgomery County are criticizing the administration of Gov. Larry Hogan (R) for refusing to link a surge of hate-based incidents in recent weeks to the election of Republican Donald Trump.

They say they are particularly troubled that, in response to a tweet from state Sen. Cheryl C. Kagan (D) this week, Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford (R) replied that hate is not “new.”

Ron Halber, the executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington, said there is “a direct correlation” between the vitriolic rhetoric of the Trump campaign and “the uptick of anti-Semitic and bigoted events happening across the country and in my home town of Montgomery County.”

“Anyone who is denying that has their head in the sand,” Halber said...."

And that of course includes the TTF Troll quoted above.

It's true hate itself is not new, but crime statistics differ with "head in sand" beliefs that "nothing's changed.

In survey, teachers report a postelection surge in bullying

The day after the presidential election, high schoolers in Illinois reportedly yelled things like “terrorist” and “pack your bags” at their immigrant classmates on the school bus, while a Jewish student at the same school was reportedly told, “We’ll burn you.”

That same day, a group of Hispanic girls at a high school in New Jersey told their homeroom teacher that another student had warned them that President-elect Donald Trump “was going to deport their families.”

Seventh-grade boys in Colorado were heard yelling “Heil Trump!,” and at an elementary school in Michigan, some Muslim girls have stopped wearing hijabs.

These are just a few of the 25,000-plus anecdotes submitted by more than 10,000 teachers, principals, counselors, administrators and others who work at K-12 schools around the country, in response to an online survey conducted by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance project in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election.

According to a report released by the SPLC this week, 90 percent of the educators who responded to the survey said that the election has had a negative impact on the overall mood and behavior of their students, with most also expressing concerns that the postelection fallout will continue to weigh heavily on their classrooms for the rest of the school year.

Eighty percent reported that anxieties have intensified among African-Americans, immigrants, Muslims, LGBT and other marginalized students since the election, while four out of 10 respondents said they’ve heard students use derogatory language against their African-American, immigrant and Muslim classmates, as well as in relation to students’ gender or sexual orientation.

December 03, 2016 12:09 PM  
Blogger Priya Lynn said...

Half of the educators reported having observed students pick on one another over politics, and more than 2,500 described fights, violent threats and attacks on both teachers and students, property damage, derogatory graffiti, and other specific incidents of hate and harassment that appear directly linked to the election.

“My Mexican-American students have been catching comments from kids at school and in the community about being deported, etc.” wrote one high school teacher from New York. “We also had one student post a pro-Trump/anti-black meme that went to 600 other kids’ Instagram feeds. (The words he used are not printable here.)”

At an elementary school in Minnesota, there have been many fights between students since the election “as well as many more boys feeling superior to girls,” another teacher noted. “I have had one male student grab a female student’s crotch and tell her that it’s legal for him to do that to her now.”

The findings of this latest report echo those of a similar survey conducted by the Teaching Tolerance project during the presidential primaries in late March. Then, the SPLC, concluded that “children of color, in particular, [were] being deeply traumatized,” while others appeared to be “emboldened by the divisive, often juvenile rhetoric” coming from the presidential campaign trail.

Though that earlier survey did not mention any particular candidates by name, the responses from more than 2,000 educators included far more references to Donald Trump than anyone else in the race.

December 03, 2016 12:11 PM  
Blogger Priya Lynn said...

“Mr. Trump claims he’s surprised his election has unleashed a barrage of hate across the country,” SPLC President Richard Cohen said at a press conference Tuesday. “But he shouldn’t be. It’s the predictable result of the campaign he waged.”

In response to the findings of the Teaching Tolerance survey as well as a separate SPLC report detailing 867 bias and hate-related incidents reported within the first 10 days of Trump’s election, Cohen and several other human rights leaders called on the president-elect to take responsibility for the influence his words have had, speak out against bigotry and reassure those who’ve been most marginalized by his campaign that he will serve all Americans as president.

“America is hurting right now, and all of us want to come together and feel safe,” Brenda Abdelall of Muslim Advocates, a legal advocacy organization that has been tracking hate crimes against Muslim Americans over the past year. “To bring us together as a nation, he will need to disavow dangerous proposals and ideas that single out and demonize Muslims and other communities.”

A spokesperson for Trump did not respond to an immediate request for comment on this story, but as Cohen and others noted, the president-elect has thus far only vaguely, and only when pressed, condemned the acts of bigotry that have been reportedly carried out in his name since the election.

“ Trump has claimed he’ll keep Americans safe and stand up for the little guy — but he refuses to speak up for the littlest guys — the children — who are being taunted and bullied in schools by kids who use his name as a weapon,” said Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers. “His [silence] … is deafening.”

Hillary overwhelmingly won the votes of black, hispanic, and asian women

So what (unexpectedly considerable) support Trump did get among women, he got almost entirely from white women. But there were some differences according to education level. That's the rude wake-up call from these elections for all the progressives who mistakenly thought we were beyond all that -- For lower-to-middle income, less educated whites, race trumps everything else.

oh, you've shifted to Muslims now?

in the prior post, and the topic of Jim's post is anti-Semitism directed at Jews

this is what the media is hyping

and desperately trying to associate with Trump, which the FBI has not done

as far as Muslims go, there have been a number of attacks by Islamic extremists in 2015 and 20016 in both Europe and the United States

this has more to do with the tensions than Trump

not excusing any such crimes, but the reasons have more to do with an Islamic culture that has declared war on the West and the common citizens in the West who are trying to find a way to fight back in self defense

indeed, while not all Muslims commit these crimes, their sympathizers in Muslim countries are not trivial but instead make huge swaths of the population

The FBI doesn't report about crime in Europe and I'm not talking about Europe either.

You're the one who feels the need to change the subject to make racists here in the states look better.

They will never look good to the majority of Americans who voted against the Pu--y Predator @$$hole.

It's the uptick in crime in the good old USA fed by the Pu--y Predator President Elect's campaign strategy I'm talking about, like swastikas painted in our schools and WHITE POWER TRUMP WON bullshit painted on inclusive churches.

Go hide your head in the sand and pretend everything is hunky dory.

Here are a few excerpts from the Politico article about the FBI report for the click phobic:

"Hate crimes against Muslims in America soared 67 percent in 2015, according to a new FBI report that also reveals a nearly 7 percent increase in hate crimes overall.

The bureau’s Uniform Crime Report, which catalogs data about hate crimes, documented 257 anti-Muslim hate crimes — up from 154 in 2014 — and 5,850 total incidents reported to police last year, a 6.8 percent increase over the 5,479 incidents reported in 2014.

Nearly 57 percent of the reported incidents were motivated by race, ethnicity or ancestry. Fifty-three percent of such attacks targeted African-Americans, while 19 percent were anti-white.

More than 1,000 incidents were each reported based off religious bias and bias against sexual orientation. [PAY ATTENTION HERE, ASSHOLE:] A majority of those religious cases — 53 percent — involved anti-Semitism, and 21 percent were anti-Muslim, a group of people President-elect Donald Trump alienated in December when the then-Republican presidential candidate called for “a total and complete shutdown” of Muslim immigration.

All but 19 of the 1,053 incidents regarding sexual orientation were anti-LGBT. An overwhelming 63 percent of cases were anti-gay (male), while 19 percent were motivated against the LGBT group at large and 13 percent specifically against lesbians.

Other hate crimes were based on disability, gender and gender identity.

Sixty-two percent of the reported incidents were crimes against persons rather than property. Top crimes include intimidation, simple assault and aggravated assault.

Seventy-three percent of the crimes against property fell into a category of destruction, damage and vandalism. The remaining most frequent crimes include larceny-theft, burglary and robbery.

Nearly 15,000 law enforcement agencies participated in the hate crime statistics program...."

The Win At All Costs party

"It's conventional wisdom that members of both parties are equally partisan about everything and that nobody has any principles. This is an example of how that might not be true:

Americans' support for keeping the Electoral College system for electing presidents has increased sharply. Weeks after the 2016 election, 47% of Americans say they want to keep the Electoral College, while 49% say they want to amend the Constitution to allow for a popular vote for president. In the past, a clear majority favored amending the U.S. Constitution to replace the Electoral College with a popular vote system.

-47% want to keep Electoral College, up from 35% in 2011
-Republicans shift decisively in favor of Electoral College
-Most Americans correctly answer that Hillary Clinton won popular vote

Gallup graphic

I think it's pretty clear what's happened here, don't you? More Republicans have suddenly decided that the electoral college is awesome for some unknown reason. The Democrats did not. Now it's possible that if they ever win the EC and lose the popular vote by millions they too will be ready to embrace it. We don't know since that never happens.

What we can see is that after 2000, which was the same situation as today essentially, there was no big uptick in support for the EC. There is now. And that's because the Republican Party is no longer even slightly interested in democratic norms. They are the "win at all costs" Party."

Army will not grant easement for Dakota Access Pipeline crossing

By U.S. ArmyDecember 4, 2016

Army POC: Moira Kelley (703) 614-3992,
The Department of the Army will not approve an easement that would allow the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota, the Army's Assistant Secretary for Civil Works announced today.
Jo-Ellen Darcy said she based her decision on a need to explore alternate routes for the Dakota Access Pipeline crossing. Her office had announced on November 14, 2016 that it was delaying the decision on the easement to allow for discussions with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, whose reservation lies 0.5 miles south of the proposed crossing. Tribal officials have expressed repeated concerns over the risk that a pipeline rupture or spill could pose to its water supply and treaty rights.
"Although we have had continuing discussion and exchanges of new information with the Standing Rock Sioux and Dakota Access, it's clear that there's more work to do," Darcy said. "The best way to complete that work responsibly and expeditiously is to explore alternate routes for the pipeline crossing."
Darcy said that the consideration of alternative routes would be best accomplished through an Environmental Impact Statement with full public input and analysis.
The Dakota Access Pipeline is an approximately 1,172 mile pipeline that would connect the Bakken and Three Forks oil production areas in North Dakota to an existing crude oil terminal near Pakota, Illinois. The pipeline is 30 inches in diameter and is projected to transport approximately 470,000 barrels of oil per day, with a capacity as high as 570,000 barrels. The current proposed pipeline route would cross Lake Oahe, an Army Corps of Engineers project on the Missouri River.

didn't realize when I first responded that this was the vile anon

I will address the point briefly, however, but will engage in no other exchange with this despicable person

this person cites an increase in attacks on Muslims and blames Trump

but the numbers are very small and the FBI doesn't link this to Trump

it's more likely that the increase is due to numerous attacks by Islamic terrorists on Western, including U.S., targets

after that, the vile anon disingenuously cites proportions of the total rather than increases, strengthening the idea that not much has changed and it all has little to do with Trump

also, since every group, including whites, have been victims, why have a hate crimes category at all?

assault and vandalism have always been illegal

"47% want to keep Electoral College, up from 35% in 2011"

this time around, intelligent people have gone to the trouble of discussing why the electoral college is preferable: it's because regions with low populations should have the same representation as the coastal megapolises

any other system would threaten a tyranny against the rights of people in low density areas

"Most Americans correctly answer that Hillary Clinton won popular vote"

if they think that they are misinformed

we have a right to not vote and people make that decision based on what effect their vote will have

we didn't have a popular vote and, if we had, there is no certainty what the results would have been - it's unknown who would have chosen to vote in a popular vote

Hillary couldn't have won the popular vote if we didn't have one

"Army will not grant easement for Dakota Access Pipeline crossing"

hmmm..... I didn't understand all the hullabaloo but it's interesting that all this protest was going on when a decision hadn't even been made

I favor local control so this sounds like a great outcome to me

interesting that liberals love civil disobedience when it's Indian tribes but demonize Western ranchers who do the same

"Jim, thank you, I guess, for this chilling post"

it's not Halloween, David

"We cannot let symbols of evil become normalized. Not swasticas, not the KKK"

no, we cannot, but there's little chance of that, this is just liberal propaganda

the least tolerant people in America right now are actually gay agendists and global warming alarmists

"We must remain the America striving toward a "more perfect union," not an America descending into divisive hate"

Man Allegedly Threatens To Cut Throat Of Off-Duty Muslim NYPD Cop

"The New York City Police Department arrested a man Sunday for allegedly threatening an off-duty Muslim NYPD officer who was wearing her hijab, CBS New York reported.

Christopher Nelson, 36, of Brooklyn, was charged with menacing as a hate crime and aggravated harassment, according to media reports.

Aml Elsokary was parking her car in Brooklyn Saturday evening when she spotted someone shoving and yelling at her 16-year-old son, according to a police report cited by outlets.

The unarmed Elsokary confronted the suspect, who allegedly told her, “ISIS (expletive), I will cut your throat go back to your country.” During the encounter, Elsokary did not identify herself as an officer, Associated Press noted from a police account.

The suspect fled the scene. However, cops apparently identified him on surveillance video.

“We could lose lives because of this,” de Blasio said in a news conference Monday. “The temperature has to be brought down.”

Since Election Day, hate crimes have increased by 115 percent, with 43 hate crimes reported, compared to 20 during the same period last year, New York Police Department Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said in a news conference Monday. Twenty-four of those incidents were found to be anti-Semitic, and four were anti-Muslim...."

never said they weren't

I don't think the cause is Trump and

I don't think they should be any more illegal than other crimes

"In 2012, Romney won a larger share of the popular vote"

just like 2016, we didn't hold a popular vote in 2012

when you announce you are having a vote, people decide whether they want to vote based on how effective they perceive their vote will be

"neither Hillary nor Gore ran in a popular election"

Your Pu--y Predator President-Elect announced he had "won the popular vote" and threw in another of his paranoid lies as a bonus when he did.


"“In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” Trump tweeted..."
