Racism Is Alive, Well, and Won't Be Deterred by Hate Rally's Fizzle-Out 15.8.2018 American Prospect
(Craig Hudson/Charleston Gazette-Mail via AP) Unite the Right participants in Washington, D.C., on August 12, 2018 One week ago, as I was leaving a morning coffee meeting in Arlington, Virginia, I ran into white supremacy on the Washington Metro. At first, I barely noticed these two average-looking strangers. But animated by a pro-Trump book that one man had been reading, they began to discuss right-wing politics, their contempt for the left, and their hatred of all things Hillary. Their conversation quickly crescendoed into white nationalist meme-ery. As they castigated black people as lazy and unintelligent, women as entitled, and “Mexicans” as violent and opportunistic, one of the men punctuated his argument by nodding in my direction. “I’m talking about them,” he said, looking at me with wide, lucid eyes. The tourists and late-morning commuters on the Metro doggedly fixated on their phones, willing themselves to reclassify this harassment as the free speech that all Americans have the right to ...

Trudeau gaslights Canadian women and ignores their safety 26.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada Two weeks ago, a new study by the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability confirmed the state of domestic terrorism against women in this land. A woman is murdered by a man every other day in Canada, with at least 78 known acts of femicide up to July 1 (the numbers are likely higher given that it is based largely on media reports). A disproportionate number of those murdered were Indigenous women. That very same day, there was audible silence from the self-proclaimed "feminist" Trudeau government. Instead of declaring that the time had come to finally launch a National Action Plan to End Violence Against Women and Girls (NAP), Trudeau was in Latvia, trying to match the toxic masculinity of Donald Trump by whipping out hundreds of millions of dollars to continue funding Canadian troops to engage in endless war games through the year 2023 against a non-existent threat to the people of this land.
