‘You have Neo-Nazis celebrating the Trump presidency’

Posted by | February 9, 2017 10:00 | Filed under: Media/Show Business News Behaving Badly Politics

Those are the words of Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert – and yes, we’ve noticed that too. Boehlert sat down with Salon to talk about the emboldened fascist right in America.

To Media Matters Senior Fellow Eric Boehlert, President Trump’s administration is the best thing that could have happened to racist Americans.

“This is a White House that is determined to gin up hysteria, really, about immigrants, Muslims and terror,” Boehlert told Salon Talks. We haven’t seen anything like this in a decade.

“You have Neo-Nazis celebrating the Trump presidency because he might take the focus away from them, let them run wild, and not have government oversight.”

The man at the center of the controversies, Steve Bannon, deserves some of the blame, Boehlert noted. “He helped shepherd an outright white nationalist site” in Breitbart.com. “This is an anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-black site.”

Bannon’s efforts are causing chaos in the White House, and in American politics in general.

“The main way that they’ve disrupted everything is they’ve taken this very fringe, radical, sort of dark view of American politics.They’ve been welcomed into kind of mainstream of the Republican Party and the White House,” Boehlert said.

But, in a way, Trump is the result of what happens when you get conservative media running policy.

“Fox News and Breitbart have always been furious that the government tracks right-wing homegrown terrorists, white terrorists. They want terror in America only to be about Islam,” he continued. “So there’s a report that the Trump White House is going to take this terror program, eliminate white nationalists and make it only for terror in Islam.”

What about fake news? It’s the Trump administration’s best friend.

“The Trump White House from day one has decided that, We are going to run on fear, and we’re gonna use fake news to do it.”

    2/3 of USA’s domestic terror attacks are brought to you by: “Fox News and Breitbart have always been furious that the government tracks right-wing homegrown terrorists, white terrorists.” 50 armed U.S. toddlers shoot and kill every year in America, far more than the USA’s 100 total terror deaths since 2001 to present.

    I’m not a believer in voodoo but hey, it’s worth a shot. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/12819ab0e89ad845ae74b9a1908952b04e3641754d576d8e6a654891ea415582.jpg

    Hey, Eric; howzabout cleaning up your site? You USED to be able to hold a decent conversation with some (not many, but some) rational conservatives.
    Now it’s impossible to go to the forums without encountering at least a dozen alt-right sewer-mouths tag-teaming the threads, and disrupting any discussion.
    (Serendipitously, it DID cause me to come here…)

    Why shouldn’t they celebrate? If one is a neo-nazi it’s cause for celebration. Human nature..what pleases you you celebrate.

      They celebrate the country’s disgrace under Trump.
