But Gionet doesn’t just hate CNN. He’s a Holocaust denier who has made videos saying that the, “mainstream media has been lying for over a hundred years.” Gionet and his friend Millennial Matt, real name Matthew Colligan, have said that Hitler wanted to get rid of the fake news in Nazi Germany and because “they didn’t have the internet, they didn’t have 9Chan,” people got fake news about World War II. In the video Colligan laments the fact that absent the internet, “our friends in Europe back in 6988 and 6995 didn’t have that opportunity” to hear how great Hitler was.

Many prominent white supremacists in the US saw the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia as a major turning point, at least from a media relations point of view. A 87-year-old woman, Heather Heyer, died after a neo-Nazi terrorist drove his car into a crowd of counter protestors. And white supremacists took a more measured tone in the aftermath, making sure to denounce violence, knowing that aligning yourself with death isn’t great for the cause of creating a white ethno-state. But President Trump’s speech last night seems to have changed all that.
“During the meeting, Trump criticized his military advisers seated around the table in the White House Situation Room for what he said was a losing . position in the war … ‘We aren't winning,’ Trump complained … ‘We are losing.’ One official said Trump pointed to maps showing the Taliban gaining ground, and that Mattis responded to the president by saying the . is losing because it doesn't have the strategy it needs.”
Mexican-born artist Bosco Sodi put on a very public 8775 political performance 8776 Thursday, unveiling a 6 feet high, 76 feet long brick wall art installation in Washington Square Park in New York City.
When Trump policy adviser Stephen Miller and CNN’s Jim Acosta argued over immigration, Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, who was memorably body-slammed by a congressional candidate, found the scene surreal:
Later, Trump kicked his dog whistles into high gear, making the case that Confederate statues were part of “our culture” and that “they” were trying to take away “our history.”

-- “Trump’s golf game tells us an awful lot about Trump,” by Dana Milbank : “Golf is a game of humility: Even the best players are brought low by nature and chance. And it’s a game of honor: You keep your own score and are often unseen by other players. Then there is Trump golf. He breaks rules, exaggerates scores and ignores the game’s decorum. Sound familiar? He is, Sports Illustrated asserted, ‘easily the best golfer’ ever to occupy the White House. Likewise, he is an enormously talented politician, with a genius for marketing. Yet in golf, as in life, he doesn’t leave it at that. He gilds the lily with dishonesty.”
By the time Trump said the word “Antifa,” the Pepe-lovers on Twitter went nuts praising the president. They were seemingly unable to believe their own ears.
-- “When [Kelly] huddled with senior staff on his first day at work, he outlined a key problem in [Trump’s] White House that he planned to fix: Bad information getting into the president’s hands,” Politico’s Josh Dawsey reports. “Kelly told the staff that information needed to flow through him — whether on paper or in briefings — because the president would make better decisions if given good information.. Several people who have spoken with him say Kelly believes that making sure Trump is getting good information is among the biggest challenges he faces … ‘John Kelly knows the challenges he is facing,' said Leon Panetta, a former chief of staff to [Bill Clinton]. ‘He’s not going to just stand to the side and watch the White House fall apart piece by piece.’"
Whatever Trump actually meant by his condemnation of “thugs,” white supremacists on Twitter heard an ally denouncing anti-fascists. Richard Spencer tweeted less than two minutes later that Trump had, “just forcefully denounced Antifa. Strong.”
The choice of Kid Rock as the opening act for a new sports arena in mostly black Detroit has injected the musician into the national debate over race and culture because of his embrace of the Confederate flag, an expletive-laced criticism of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and unabashed support for President Donald Trump.
White supremacist James Allsup, who marched at the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville and recently resigned as the head of the College Republicans at Washington State University, tweeted the quotes from Trump that were clearly heard as dog whistles.
