Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Stormfront, the oldest, longest-running white supremacist website, was kicked offline on Friday.
"Nazis are a lot like cats. If they like you, it's probably because you're feeding them."
The racism of the white supremacists in Charlottesville isn't new, but neither is the desire to push back against it. There are two sides, but only one if you are someone who cares about being an actual human being. Choose wisely.
Last night, torch-wielding racists and hate groups descended on Charlottesville, Virginia as part of the lead-up to a Unite the Right rally. It looked a hell of a lot like a KKK rally.
Apparently water jetpacks weren't enough for these Star Wars fans; they adapted them and made full-blown gosh darn speederbikes.
The group Exit Deutschland
, which aims to help youths escape the Neo-Nazi
subculture in Germany, has found a new and subtle way of communicating with their target audience. At a recent rock concert targeted at right-wing extremists, the group anonymously disseminated 250 black t-shirts
emblazoned with skull and crossbones and the moto "Hardcore Rebels - National and Free." However, once the shirts were laundered they underwent a surprising transformation.
The skull motiff completely vanished in the wash, replaced by, "Was Dein T-Shirt Kann, Kannst Du Auch." This translates to, "What your t-shirt can do, so can you" with information on contacting the Exit Deutschland organization. Exit-Deutschland's co-founder Bernd Wagner
said that goal was to communicate with youths at home, when they are alone.
To date, the group has helped 400 young people escape the Neo-Nazi subculture, but Wagner says that wasn't necessarily the goal behind the shirts. Instead, Wagner aims to simply present an offer that he hopes people will remember if they have a change of heart.
