VIRGINIA: Newspaper Quotes Trump’s “Fire And Fury” Rant In Headline About White Supremacist Rally

The Hill reports:

A daily newspaper in Charlottesville, Va. used President Trump’s North Korea warning of looming “fire and fury” to headline its coverage of a gathering of far-right protestors on Saturday.

The Daily Progress’ front page, emblazoned with the headline “Fire and Fury,” comes after a group of white nationalists, white supremacists and far-right protestors descended on the campus of the University of Virginia.

Wielding torches and shouting phrases like “white lives matter” and “you will not replace us,” the protestors gathered in an apparent lead-up to Saturday’s planned demonstration against the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

      Institutional religion today doesn’t specialize in racism. Its specialty, generally, is enforcement of gender roles (homophobia being an offshoot of that).

      There are notable exceptions, though. Some churches, synagogues, mosques and temples are forces for good.

        Unless the person is mentally incompetent, I don’t know how any person who voted for, or today supports, Donald Trump can not be considered a bigot.

        • Carl

          If witnessing bigotry doesn’t outrage and move someone to action, they are effectively a bigot themselves. I’m sure there’s an argument about bigotry coming in degrees, but at the end of the day I’m not sure it’s worth quibbling about.

          • another_steve

            I agree.

            I’m not religious in the conventional sense but the concept of “witnessing” (a concept shared by several faiths) resonates with me. As moral and upright human beings, we are obligated to witness.

            As you enter the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC, you are greeted with this from Isaiah 43:10, carved into the overhead marble:

            You are my witnesses.

          • (((GC)))

            Amy Siskind’s remarks in January are just as relevant now, to everyone in tRump’s department of communications lies and gaslighting:

            “I’ve really come to understand Kellyanne Conway’s role as the director of cognitive dissonance. She throws out just enough uncertainty to allow Trump supporters to stay in line, even after things that are unquestionably morally wrong. He wasn’t really mocking the disabled reporter, he didn’t really mean this or that when he said it – it’s telling us not to believe our own eyes, ears and minds: or giving some permission not to. It’s an extreme version of gaslighting, but once you get it, you can see how she uses it as a strategy. Sick stuff!”

          • another_steve

            That sums it up really well.

            Trump’s base is low-IQ and low-discerning (remember how he bragged during the campaign about loving his low-IQ crowd?). If you inject a bit of complicated syntax or reasoning into their heads, they tune out.

      The counter protesters are giving them what they want.

      • Taylor Bixler

        Certainly the antifa ones are. There were clergy-based peaceful protests that have been pushed back and assaulted.

          Antifa just wants to watch things burn, simple as that.

          • james1200

            This is why the left is stupid and will always lose. The Antifa are fighting Nazis the only way one can fight Nazis while the rest of the moronic left really believes “love conquers all” and think they can win and persuade with tired, embarrassing slogans and by holding up a poster of a dove. The stupidity of my fellow liberals never ceases to amaze me.

          • BobSF_94117

            Who were the antifa types in the 60s and how did they win the fight for Civil Rights?

            I’m all ears…

          • james1200

            You mean the civil rights that happened after black people started burning down city after city when they got sick of a 160 years of unfullfilled promises and unchecked police brutality? You mean those 1960’s?

          • BobSF_94117

            Check a timeline. If you think burning out the black middle class was a good idea, well, I can’t help you.

          • james1200

            Let’s not also forget how we beat the nazi scum last time, when FDR sent 2 million American boys over to Europe and Africa during WWII with homemade signs that said “Love Conquers All” and the Nazis just put down their guns and V2 rockets and surrendered. That’s the alternate history you remember, right?

            People who want to exterminate you can NOT be reasoned with. I don’t know why this has to be explained to an adult.

          • CottonBlimp

            1) The Black Panthers
            2) The threat of potential violence was the only bargaining chip the peaceful civil rights marchers had

          • BobSF_94117

            You do that generation of peaceful protest a great disservice.

          • I agree. South African apartheid was thrown over by peaceful boycotts that included products and the exclusion of white South Africans from FIFA and the Olympic Games.

          • CottonBlimp

            You do the entire world a disservice by buying into the bullshit narrative that all black people had to do to get their rights was ask white people really nicely.

            It ought to be blatantly obvious that sometimes violence is unavoidable in opposition to violent threats. And the paranoid person in me wonders if there’s maybe a sinister reason why the left has been told over and over again that violence is never the answer – it’s certainly clear how well that’s worked in the last couple decades.

          • BobSF_94117

            The Black Panthers raised the possibility of armed resistance. They didn’t use their weapons. Antifa shows up at rallies and then engages in deliberate rioting, usually directed at everybody but the people they’re protesting. If they were proud of what they do, they wouldn’t wear masks.

            Black American and its white allies didn’t “ask really nicely”. They demanded, civilly, with articulate leaders and profoundly moral arguments. And peaceful determination that today’s right-wingers are not remotely capable of.

          • CottonBlimp

            If they were proud of what they do, they wouldn’t wear masks.

            And if there’s nothing wrong with being gay, gays wouldn’t mind being outed, right?

            It’s clear to me that no amount of moral argument is going to change your beliefs, and maybe you feel the same way about me. So why do you think moral arguments alone were enough to change hundreds of years of legally and culturally established white supremacy?

          • And your suggestion, James, would be……? Let me remind you that India gained independence from Great Britain thanks to the peaceful protests of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jnr’s peaceful demonstrations brought him and his marchers success and respect.

      • CottonBlimp

        Bullshit. You think any of those tiki-torch-carrying dickweeds wants to get punched in the face?

        What they want is for the left to capitulate. *You* are giving them what they want when you attack *their* biggest enemies for them.

        • Gustav2

          They wanted violence, they got it. It make them manly men and will get drinks in the bar on this for decades.

          • CottonBlimp

            They wanted violence, they got it.

            Do you know why wolves snarl, why tigers puff themselves up, why rattlesnakes rattle, why lions roar, why all dangerous animals make themselves look big and scary and make threatening noises?

            That’s what animals do to *avoid* a fight.

            These animals are no different. Their strength comes from intimidation and capitulation, not from actual strength. In a full on fight, these pukes are completely outnumbered. An actual fight is the last thing they actually want.

            In what possible sense does getting beat help them? Because it boosts their victim mentality? Honey, these bitches don’t need us to be martyrs, they’ll nail themselves up on crosses they made themselves. These worthless shitstains already blame us for their own terrible life decisions.

            Their appeal lies solely in their image of strength and power appealing to the impotent who resent feeling powerless living in their mom’s basement. Their recruitment tool is the fantasy that one day they’ll get to stomp on faggots. When faggots stomp on *them*, it makes them look pathetic to their own base.

          • Gustav2

            They won by getting national attention and getting the lefties to protest and get violent.

          • CottonBlimp

            They have neonazis in the white house, getting the nation’s attention was not the point.

            The point of these rallies is to enable other nazis to come out of the closet. It’s to make the deplorables feel safe and to make minorities feel scared. Anti-fascist violence clearly works to counteract both these goals, while fingerwagging and tone trolling tells fascists their shit will be tolerated and tells their victims that no one’s going to do much to protect them.

          • Gustav2

            So have a separate rally, this confrontational stuff gets people killed.

            Let them talk and look stupid.

          • CottonBlimp

            They don’t look stupid to their target audience. Letting them talk gets way more people killed in the long run.

          • Gustav2

            Their target audience is small until WE make it national news. Laugh at them, ridicule them, march, show that we are more people than their little group. Remember the Women’s March on DC, it made Trump look small.

            That’s how you win.

          • CottonBlimp

            Like how we won the last election?

            A big ass Nazi rally is national news whether there’s violence or not, as it should be. Ignoring Nazis works about as well as ignoring cockroaches. Without counteraction, this rally would have been legitimized by the media, mark my words; pundits from FOX to CNN and even MSNBC saying it’s about “economic anxiety” or “free speech” or that “sure, some of them are Nazis, but BLM is just is bad”. Instead, all of the coverage of this rally is going to be about how a movement that considers itself the heart of conservatism and Donald Trump’s biggest base are terrorist murderers.

            Hillary was a bad candidate that did not excite the D’s.

      People from the Society for Creative Anachronism have battles with padded swords and stuff… but their philosophy couldn’t be more different from the neo-Nazis’! What I’ve seen from hanging out with a few SCA folks is that they research and recreate the arts, sciences, and culture of an egalitarian version of the Middle Ages “as they should have been”, where everyone can be a lord or a lady.

      The kings or queens of the different regions (Kingdoms) are chosen by tournaments — and notably unlike actual history, they only reign serve until the next regularly scheduled Crown Tournament, unless they successfully defend their title.

      I grew up in Skokie, Illinois (home of many Holocaust survivors), and I was there in when the neo-Nazis fought to march there. Luckily they lost and had to march in Chicago, instead. (Spoilers for the 1981 made-for-TV movie, Skokie.)

      • Pat

        ‘Skokie’ with Danny Kaye, saw it and how many years later now, it still is memorable. This is what I grew up with, plus Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison and Hanna Arendt in high school.

      Spend any time on 4chan, and you will see plans in the work to hit both Richmond and Virginia Beach.

  • TimCA

    They should quote the so-called president since it’s no secret that Trumpism is a white supremacist movement.

  • Leo

    The “mild” police presence is partly due to a heavy ACLU presence on the scene, having threatened multiple lawsuits for any change of venue last night.

  • BobSF_94117

    They’re giving the KKK wannabes too much credit.

  • Ninja0980

    Is it wrong to want to make Clarence Thomas be dropped in the middle of this?
    Maybe then that worthless POS will shut the fuck up about how racism doesn’t exist anymore.

    • Christopher

      Wrong, yes. But let’s put a pin in this for later.

    • jimbo65

      Don’t forget John Roberts. He had a hard on to strip the voting rights act way back when.

  • Christopher
    • jimbo65

      I’d totally get behind the idea of a serial targeting other serials.

  • Tomcat

    I cannot believe there are no rooftop cameras there to document this march.
    I did notice a few men on roof with binoculars. Most likely feds.

    • Taylor Bixler

      The city is filled with CC cameras. Literally. But I am guessing police prevented people from getting on rooftops or 2nd floors of buildings.

      • Tomcat

        The police have not done anything at all here yet. Virginia cops are very rightwing.

  • Gustav2

    Throwing plastic water bottles at each other.

    These youngsters just don’t know how to do this. /s

  • safari

    Well, this will only serve to piss me off for the day.

    • Gustav2

      Nope, not going to let it. Will go outside and say hello to the whole rainbow of neighbors on a beautiful day. Just put the kettle on…

  • safari
    • Tomcat

      Great Britain have these all the time these days.

      • BobSF_94117

        Not with guns, they don’t.

  • Leo

    The local NBC29 cam is probably the most insane out of all of them I’ve just checked out and that’s saying something: https://www.facebook.com/pg/NBC29/videos/?ref=page_internal

  • Phil2u

    Charlottesville is a lovely city and one should be disappointed in this nonsensical display. Unfortunately, as a friend of mine and Charlottesville resident says, “It’s just Lynchburg with a real university.”

  • Paula

    I just saw someone throw a banana. What’s next? They will start flinging poo…

    • safari

      Did they run out of Mt. Dew?

      • Gustav2

        …and plastic water bottles.

    • Steverino

      Tiki torches, water bottles, bananas… What is this, the Luau Rebellion?

      • Tomcat

        Better than lead!!!!

      • Gustav2

        Piña Coladas at 3:00

      • Paula

        That’s it! This is officially the Luau Rebellion… I can’t wait until they start throwing poi. Well, it is the south, they might throw grits.

        • m_lp_ql_m

          For most of these guys, it’ll be the first time they get lei’d.

      • Phil2u

        They are on end-of-season sale right now… WalMart and Target.

  • Leo

    Richard Painter: I will call for the impeachment of Donald Trump if he does not fire Sebastian Gorka and Steve Bannon.

    • Tomcat

      He has no calling to call for anything. He is as bad as them.

    • Hank

      Not a big fan of Painter, but he IS saying, that they should not be accepted by the Rethuglican Party!!! A tad hypocritical for my tastes!!!

      • Gustav2

        He has been warning of this since Trump. Not all conservatives are racists…they are just stupid on economics.

  • FAEN

    This is the face of fascism in America. This is the face of Breitbart. This is fucking madness!

  • Leo

    Joy going in on the Nazi connections of Sebastian Gorka.

  • kcken

    Late 2000 Canadian me: Move to England, Australia, or United States

  • Leo

    2 injured so far according to CNN, about ~6 according to Twitter

    • Taylor Bixler

      Charlottesville hospitals canceled all elective surgeries on Saturday to prepare for expected violence.

  • JoeMyGod

    “What you are watching in Charlotteville right now IS Breitbart News” – Richard Painter on MSNBC….

    • Gustav2

      And he named names of the Fascists who should be fired at the White House. He called them “Fascists”

  • Gustav2

    Former ethics lawyer for W, throw the fascists out of the White House.

    Gorka, Bannon, etc.

  • Hank

    This is the cause of the maggots coming out of the woodwork, today!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a50eb5460a8ae0d8e218ea65251456c5d48539a7b3352187c2855ac5f0fb6753.gif

    Fire, fury, and revolted mosquitoes.

  • Leo

    Joy: “This is an open-carry state. This is an incredibly volatile situation. Yes, you ARE seeing long-guns. Yes, you DID see violence against the CLERGY earlier.”

  • TimCA

    The MSNBC coverage is now showing white nationalists carrying what appears to be high powered guns!! WOW!!!

    • Taylor Bixler

      Open carry state. Charlottesville PD reaffirmed their right to carry.

      • TimCA

        These are white racists carrying firearms. I’m in my 50s. I never would have imagined seeing this level of raw racist intimidation again in the United States. This is horrific!!

        • Taylor Bixler

          The local weekly did a good expose on some of the main actors. In addition to the racism, misogyny and anti semitism, most are also NRA/gun rights activists, like Chris Cantwell

          • FAEN

            Anything to get gun sales up.

        • Hank

          Sadly, it has ALWAYS been here, depending upon where in the country you live, and probably has been spreading. It is Hair Drumpf and President Bannon, that took the lid off and made them “acceptable”

        • TimCA

          btw-Does anyone ever remember any BLM activists carrying high powered automatic weapons at their rallies and protests? I don’t! BLM wasn’t about black supremacy.
          This is white supremacy/nazism on full display. frightening

          • SoCalGal20

            HELLO. BLM is just like ISIS. They’re terrorists!!!!!!!11!!!!1111!! /s

          • TimCA

            Operating in open daylight with full legal impunity on the streets of our cities.

      • SoCalGal20

        But if it was a bunch of black folk marching around with guns – watch out!

        • djcoastermark

          Exactly. 2 groups , one white , flaunts their guns. The other, people of color don’t open carry, because , well, you know what would happen. The white neo crowd knows this after years of intimidating anyone else, be it the LGBT crowd, black crowd or anyone else but them. I am not a big gun fan, but maybe it is time to push back against these bigots in the same way they love to intimidate.

    • Hank

      The State Government is still heavily Rethuglican, despite the increase of the “purple” nature of the state!!!

    • JohnJay

      Open carry state? We need a group of people of color and allies to show up like this at these events:

      http://www.washington.edu/news/archive/images/20060518_pid24372_aid24370_pan2_w400.jpg

      • LesbianTippingHabits


        That’s actually the only way to get anyone’s attention.

        In theory, the Second Amendment – and state-level Open Carry laws – protects everyone’s gun rights.

        But it will take some courageous people – of color and otherwise – to test it, in public, in places like North Carolina and Texas.

        On video, of course. Thank you.

  • Ninja0980

    What Joy and others need to mention is assholes like these are being put on the courts.
    And yet it is barely getting a mention anywhere.
    That should scare all of us.

  • djcoastermark

    Watching Joy now. This is so sad seeing where our country has gone. C’Ville is a cool progressive city, no wonder the neo nazi white supremist asses picked it to reek havoc on. The nazi’s are now beating clergy with baseball bats. W-T-F !!! T rump and his cronies in the WH have to go NOW ! This is not America.

  • Steverino

    The protestors should toss rubber dildoes at the Nazis and tell them to go fuck themselves.

    • CottonBlimp

      Waste of perfectly good dildos imo

  • Leo

    Various Twitter accounts there raising alarm at the minimal police presence.

    Keep in mind that the rally hasn’t even officially started yet.

  • m_lp_ql_m

    All lives matter!”

    Wait, what? That doesn’t work here?

  • AJ Drew

    So, it’s over before it officially began… police order all to disperse

    • Taylor Bixler

      Well expect white privileged snowflake jason kessler to sue over this.

      • kareemachan

        And the elf to back him up.

  • FAEN

    Dear Old School Republicans,

    I’m not sure you exist anymore. And let’s be clear, you’re not my favorite brand of political party seeing as you’ve always hated, detested and tried to exterminate my kind but at this time in our country’s history I need for you to take your fucking party back from the Tea Baggers and/or Nazi’s in charge! And when I say Nazi I’m not using that word just to use it. There are ACTUAL Nazi’s in the WH today. Your grandparents fought them in WWII-do you think they’d be ok with this? I think not.

    This hate rally is a reflection of the man in the WH. A man that has an ‘R’ behind his name. Is this what you think your party stands for? You used to believe in science and compromise. Heck it was Nixon who founded the EPA!

    For the love of our country Old School Republicans, if you’re out there, I implore, I beg for you to start voting for rational pols instead of the fascists that have become so popular with your primary voters.

    Sincerely,

    A Gay Gen X’er

    • Ninja0980

      Sad to say but as my mom’s family in Kansas and my dad’s family here in NY and elsewhere can attest to (other then the ones that are racist) the Republican Party they knew doesn’t exist anymore.
      It’s why they’ve all left it.
      All I can say is between this and what happened in Kansas, my grandparents are rolling over in their graves right now over what happened to their party.

    • LesbianTippingHabits


      Progressives frequently criticize the Republican establishment; they are so clueless that they have forgotten that it no longer exists.

      Instead, the Democratic establishment insisted on nominating Hillary, and here we are today. Well done!

      • kareemachan

        You’re stilll around, trollette? Blocked.

  • m_lp_ql_m

    That brake fluid special tho…

  • jimbo65

    Some days I really don’t know how we’ll survive all this. This country is fractured, and even if 45 gets booted out i fear there will be protests by the racists. It’s going to take a very long time to force these bigots back into the shadows.

  • Lazycrockett

    Richard Painter is just calling them full on Fascist. Calling for Bannon and Gorghi to be fired and for calling in the Army to come in.

  • Lazycrockett

    AM Joy is asking where are the cops? Like if this was a BLM protest they would be swarming the place.

  • Acronym Jim

    “Last night when I saw those preppy man-boys with their mommies’ tiki torches…”

        Thank you!

          No worries matey 😊. Glad I could help.

        • FAEN

          Yes she does.

    • Taylor Bixler

      She went to UVa I think. She has a personal connection to the City.

      • stuckinthewoods

        Katie Couric’s sister Emily was a state senator from Cville. She died in 2001 and now UVA has the Emily Couric Cancer Center.

  • Taylor Bixler

    Just like when the KKK was in Charlottesviile in July, the CPD is protecting the white nationalists. The police chief needs to be fired.

    • LesbianTippingHabits


      Peaceful protest is a constitutional right for everyone, even people you – and I – disagree with.

  • Lazycrockett
  • AJ Drew

    Riot police there shutting it down, slowly pushing folks out of park

  • Paula

    There are Va. State Police in riot gear there now. They are separating the protesters.

    • Karl Dubhe

      I think I heard that they’ve declared this an unlawful assembly.

      Hopefully it’s settled without too much bloodshed.

      • Paula

        They are being kind of rough on the Nazis.

        • (((GC)))

          Like 45* suggested police do to suspects?

          • Paula

            That was exactly my first thought, too. In this case, I’m O.K. with that.

        • Karl Dubhe

          They should listen to Trump’s … Oh, damn. I can’t finish that.

          Mother bitten rat biscuits.

        • kareemachan

          Tough shit.

    • stuckinthewoods

      My doctor is up there protesting, hope she’s safe. I have an appointment with her on Monday which should be interesting. Apparently she accepts patients the same way I choose doctors.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Silence from Trump, still???

    Silence is consent, from his pov, isn’t it?

    This is vile.

    • kareemachan

      And his SIL is jewish. Wonder why they don’t say anything about this….

      • Karl Dubhe

        They both worship money, whatever religion they claim is a front, or what we used to call a beard.

  • Taylor Bixler

    There is another park in town, McIntire park, where the neo nazis were encamping last night. I would not be surprised to see more violence there this afternoon.

  • barrixines

    Look at me I am a special Nazi super hero with my special Nazi costume and special Nazi powers.

    ‘Just what the Trumpsters want.

    It has nothing to do with North Korea and everything to do with the culture wars in America. And it was the same with Hillary, unfortunately.

    And so it goes . . .
