This Week in Fascism #61: Nazi Teachers, QAnon Politicians & Far-Right Murder Plots

Welcome, fellow antifascists!

This week, we’ve got Jeff Sessions sending a fundraising email from Groyper fan Michelle Malkin, an incel mass shooting in Arizona, a QAnon follower winning the GOP Senate primary in Oregon, a far-Right conspiracy theorist planning to steal a helicopter to attack a hospital, plus doxxes of a neo-Nazi biker running the Reopen protests in Massachusetts, a “Boogaloo Boy” in New Jersey, a high school teacher moonlighting in a “Right Wing Death Squad” Facebook group in Florida, plus how you can help deplatform a neo-Nazi podcast network.

Without further ado, let’s begin!

Quote of note:

"The displays are tapping into Trump’s main message on the coronavirus pandemic: governors are to blame for the crisis, not him. As the president ratchets up his reelection efforts, his argument is an effort to simultaneously put the brunt of responsibility for the coronavirus catastrophe on the shoulders of his political opponents while also maintaining that he holds 'total authority' over the pandemic and the states facing it."

"It’s also an argument that resonates best in rural, redder parts of the country, which have not been hit as hard by the pandemic as blue, urban areas. Trump himself has said, 'We’ll be opening some states much sooner than others', despite pushback from legislators and business leaders alike about the current lack of mass testing."

"And it’s a message of division, designed to pit Republican-voting areas of states against their Democratic-voting neighbors, even rural Republicans against urban Republicans. All th... Show more...

Wall Street Titans Finance Democratic Primary Challenger to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

"Wall Street titans are financing a direct challenge to firebrand progressive lawmaker Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the New York primary on June 23."

"Disclosures show that over four dozen finance industry professionals, including several prominent private equity executives and investment bankers, made early donations to Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, a former CNBC contributor who is challenging Ocasio-Cortez. Caruso-Cabrera was a registered Republican until a few years ago and authored a 2010 book advocating for several conservative positions, including an end to Medicare and Social Security, which she called 'pyramid schemes'."

"The donors include Glenn Hutchins, the bil... Show more...
 
Quote of note:

"Don’t just blame President Trump. Blame me — and all the other Republicans who aided and abetted and, yes, benefited from protecting a political party that has become dangerous to America. Some of us knew better."

"But we built this moment. And then we looked the other way."

"Many of us heard a warning sound we chose to ignore, like that rattle in your car you hear but figure will go away. Now we’re broken down, with plenty of time to think about what should have been done."

Via Republicans like me built this moment. Then we looked the other way.

The DNC should be burying the GOP in constant questions about how many lives have been lost because of Trump's and the GOP's incompetence.

There should be congressional hearings. There should be subpoenas. There should be attacks on all fronts.

If a driver does something stupid that kills a single person, that driver is at risk of going to jail. But if a political party does something that puts THE ENTIRE FUCKING COUNTRY at risk of death, they get to keep going forward like nothing happened? That's bullshit of immeasurable proportions.

I have about 29 days of sick leave right now. That means I'm better off than a significant portion of the US population.
Roughly 100% of my day-to-day job responsibilities can be performed from home, so long as I have internet access. That means I could, in theory, work from home some days and extend my sick leave even further.

But...

For me to use sick leave for more than 3 days, I have to see a doctor and that doctor has to complete specific paperwork. I have to basically prove that I'm sick and that I'm sick enough to qualify for FMLA leave. Without adequate test kits, that's difficult or impossible. And it would mean exposing myself or others to all the other sick people at the doctor's (and lab's) offices.

HR policy says I can work from home 1 day a week with prior supervisor approval. I haven't heard any rumors that they might expand this for workers like me whose job can be performed offsite with relative ease.

So the whole "self-quarantine" thing? THAT IS NOT AN OPTION. Not really. Even though I'm better positioned to do so than most US workers.... Show more...

Quote of note:

"The US is badly positioned; the federal government isn’t up to the task. When I learned more about this virus my heart sank because I know the Trump administration doesn’t value basic science, it doesn’t understand it and it tends to reject it when it conflicts with its political narrative.”

Via Trump's devaluing of science is a danger to US coronavirus response, experts warn

A judge refused to recognize pro-trans law in a hate crime case. That’s judicial misconduct. / LGBTQ Nation

21st century Republicans are well-professed law-and-order conservatives – but they have a tendency to stop caring about law and order whenever the order of the law stands poised either to hold Donald Trump and his henchmen accountable or to merely respect LGBTQ existence.

NATO's Arctic War Exercise Unites Climate Change and WWIII

NATO will hold war games in Norway's Arctic Circle in March, where it will be supporting climate change-induced resource extraction and increasing the military tension with Russia.

The US military is about to send 7,500 combat troops to Norway for exercise Cold Response 2020 where they will join thousands of allied NATO troops in the Finnmark district along the border to Russia to participate in war games that will take place in mid-March.

These maneuvers have been held every other year since 2006, but their increased size and importance are raising credible fears that NATO and the United States are preparing to use the Arctic as a battleground for a possible conflict with Russia. Why have these NATO games in such a Northern latitude been gaining in importance? US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo openly explained the rationale when he visited Finland in May of last year.

"President Donald Trump’s new acting intelligence director, Richard Grenell, used to do consulting work on behalf of an Eastern European oligarch who is now a fugitive and was recently barred from entering the U.S. under anti-corruption sanctions imposed last month by the State Department."

"In 2016, Grenell wrote several articles defending the oligarch, a Moldovan politician named Vladimir Plahotniuc, but did not disclose that he was being paid, according to records and interviews. Grenell also did not register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which generally requires people to disclose work in the U.S. on behalf of foreign politicians."
