The Blissful Ignorance of American neo-Nazis

The violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville reflects the dangerous, open-the-floodgates culture that having a Bully-in-Chief in the White House has created in America.
Hundreds of protesters descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017 for a “Unite the Right” rally. 
The rally was dispersed by police minutes after its scheduled start at noon, after clashes between rallygoers and counter-protesters, and after a torchlit pre-rally march Friday night descended into violence.
But later that day, as rallygoers began a march and counterprotests continued, a reported Nazi sympathizer drove a car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one and injuring 19.
Self-described “pro-white” activist Jason Kessler organized the rally to protest the planned removal of a statue of confederate general Robert E. Lee from a park in Charlottesville.

ISIS fighter jokes about throwing gays off buildings in online Q&A

in Iraq in August 2015.
A Dutch-born Islamic State fighter has hosted an online Q&A – in which he joked about executing gay people.

The New York Times picked up that Israfil Yilmaz – who quit the Royal Netherlands Army in 2013 in order to fight for IS – took a number of questions on Tumblr.

Fielding questions on his blog, which has since been suspended, he said of gay people: “Do the whole world a favor and throw them off the highest building you can find :-)”.

He also revealed that the group had banned the use of iPhones and Apple-owned products – and explained that using Tumblr is only ‘haram’ (forbidden) if you use it for “the wrong reasons”.

The fighter also bragged about the group’s atrocities in Paris, citing France’s complicities in wars.

He wrote: “The blood of a Muslim is not cheap, and whoever takes from the blood of a Muslim for no reason should know that one day a Muslim will take revenge for the blood of that same Muslim.

“Just because they carpet bomb innocent Muslims from high in the skies and use proxies on the ground for the dirty work it’s less evil right?”

The group has executed hundreds of men for homosexuality as it expands beyond its strongholds.

The United Nations Security Council recently discussed the group’s tactics in persecuting LGBT people, as well as spreading terror and committing other atrocities.
