New York Times Magazine Declares War on America and History

New York Times building by wsifrancis, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Four hundred years ago this month, the first ship carrying African slaves came to the shores of the New World. This ship would be the first of many, and it would help establish one of the worst institutions of American economic history. It was an institution that would officially last for 250 years, more than half of our country’s lifespan, and it would taint many of the institutions that would come during and after American slavery.

None of this is new to you, and none of it is new to the vast majority of American citizens. That isn’t stopping New York Times Magazine from launching an interactive website that declares its mission to revise American history as we know it and tell it from a viewpoint that can only lead its readers to assume that America is terrible, has always been terrible, and, without some sort of political revolution, will continue to be terrible.

The site’s mission statement reads as follows:

The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.

There in the opening, you see the purpose. It is not merely an insight into another side of American history, but rather a “reframing” of the entire history. It declares that 1619 is the true founding of our nation (an absurd notion given that imperial British culture and beliefs were a central pillar in the structure and governance of the colonies until the mid-1700s) and that everything since is tainted by the lingering effects of the racism inherent in the system.

There should, in fact, be no argument that racism is still very prevalent today, and that slavery was an abhorrent institution within the United States. It also cannot logically be argued that America hasn’t come a long, long way since slavery was introduced into the American colonies, nor can it be argued that America has gone far enough in washing the stink of the institution from our society.

But even if you were to assume the worst of America’s history of racial inequality and treatment, it requires still an even further and more impossible leap to take you from there to calling the founding principles of America an outright lie, given all of the evidence we have of the Founders and their beliefs in liberty.

However, that is exactly what the leading essay on the website declares.

The United States is a nation founded on both an ideal and a lie. Our Declaration of Independence, approved on July 4, 1776, proclaims that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” But the white men who drafted those words did not believe them to be true for the hundreds of thousands of black people in their midst. “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” did not apply to fully one-fifth of the country.

If this is the sort of revisionist perspective the Times is willing to employ in its opening attempts to “reframe” the narrative of the founding and trajectory of the country, then the entire enterprise is tainted and its credibility utterly shattered.

The man most responsible for America’s Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, frequently worked on legislation in Virginia that would abolish slavery. George Washington benefitted from slavery, but also saw it as being at odds with America’s founding – upon his death, he freed his slaves. George Mason (one of the more underappreciated of the founders) objected to the Constitution not only on the grounds that it did not contain a Bill of Rights but also that it did not call for the end of the slave trade, a vital step in eliminating slavery in the United States.

Alexander Hamilton is cited by several biographers as hating slavery and being an abolitionist (though his personal letters and other documents say little on the subject, much of this assumption comes from second-hand sources). John Adams is one of the few notable founders to have never owned slaves, though he opposed radical (immediate) abolition during his presidency, telling abolitionists he would be open to an incremental plan (likely to minimize the economic effect on the southern states).

It is not only inaccurate to say that the founders tried to hold on to slavery, but it is far from the truth. The delegates to the constitutional convention who favored slavery were those in the southern states, where slavery was most prevalent. And while each of the men stated above had their flaws – Washington and Jefferson owned slaves, and Jefferson, in particular, was vocal about how inferior he felt the black man was (he favored “freedom” through expulsion) – the idea that they broke away from Britain solely to maintain slavery in the states is deeply rooted in revisionist fantasy and not fact.

The author is not doing anything new with this essay. For decades, many liberal historians and activists have worked over and around not just the personal documents of the Founders but much of the outwardly expressed public sentiment of revolutionary Americans, all in an effort to declare that the founding of America was a business proposition, a special interest project of slave owners and businessmen meant to benefit them at the expense of black slaves and poor farmers. What the Times does is take the old idea and adorn it with a pretty website and grandiose language.

What the essay, and indeed the entire tone of the “1619 Project”, declares then is that the Constitution itself is illegitimate because it is based on a lie. This is the same New York Times that openly laments every single Constitutional violation and delegitimization orchestrated by President Donald Trump’s administration.

In other words, they’d like you to believe Trump is delegitimizing an illegitimate document.

America is imperfect and will continue to be imperfect. That does not make what the country stands for illegitimate. Rather, the Constitution is both a founding document and a goal. This is what the country is supposed to look like, and it is our job as active and engaged citizens to strive for that. Yes, we have many different ideas as to how to achieve it, but the end goal is the same for a great many of us: We want to see it work.

Projects like this do not work toward that goal. They undermine it. At a time when our national press complains about being called “the enemy,” many of its most established members are openly advocating the undermining of the country – and are essentially calling for a political and cultural revolution to change it.

Liz Warren Doubles Down on Michael Brown “Murder” Tweet, Says It’s the (False) Narrative That Really Matters

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., speaks at the Iowa State Fair, Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019, in Des Moines, Iowa. (AP Photo/John Locher)

If there’s one thing you can count on from Democrats, it’s that they will say and do the most deceitful things possible to further widen the racial divide. This in spite of their stated desire for “unity” and “harmony” and what not.

There is no better current example of this than Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a 2020 presidential candidate who has been enjoying a slow but steady rise in presidential polling since May. She was in New Hampshire on Wednesday campaigning, and was asked about a controversial tweet she posted on the 5th anniversary of the death of Michael Brown last Friday.

To recap, here’s what she tweeted:

Not only did she get fact checked on her false claim by veteran journalist Brit Hume at the time, but after his prodding, three different websites took both her and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) to task that following Monday for essentially tweeting the same thing.

Both the Washington Post and FactCheck.org put out pieces on Warren’s and Harris’s tweets, noting their claims were not true:

“Harris, Warren Wrong About Brown Shooting,” read a headline Monday from the non-profit website factcheck.org.

Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler on Monday also awarded both senators four pinocchios over their claims.

[…]

… the fact-checkers said the evidence in the case contradicts the comments by Harris and Warren: Three months after the shooting, a grand jury decided not to indict Wilson. And in March of 2015, a report released by President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice found that Officer Darren Wilson most likely had reason to fear for his life and did not break the law when shooting Brown.

Even Vox.com, which is more openly left-wing than the Washington Post and FactCheck.org, wrote that Harris’s and Warren’s tweets about Brown were false, concluding:

Five years after the shooting, though, major presidential campaigns are still getting the details wrong.

None of this seemed to faze Warren, who on Wednesday doubled down on her claim by taking the Politifact approach to the word “murder” by essentially saying it was more about what she meant than what she actually said:

The U.S. senator from Massachusetts faced questions from back home, where the Yarmouth, Massachusetts, Police Department described as “reckless” her tweet about the five-year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown, who was killed in Ferguson, Missouri, in a controversial officer-involved shooting.

Warren said the police “murdered” Brown.

“What matters was a man was shot, an unarmed man, in the middle of the street, by police officers and left to die,” she said. “And I think that’s where our focus should be.”

Watch video of Warren speaking to reporters about this issue below:

Hot Air‘s John Sexton is right on the money in describing why Warren’s falsehoods on the Michael Brown shooting matter:

First of all, Officer Wilson didn’t know Brown was unarmed during their encounter. What he did know was that Brown was larger and heavier and that he had already initiated a fight with a police officer including throwing punches and grabbing for his gun.

Secondly, it’s not accurate that Brown was shot and “left to die.” The final shot that stopped Brown entered the top of his head as he was charging forward. He died instantly. Warren may have been trying to allude to the fact that Brown’s body remained in the street for several hours after his death. But that’s not the same thing as being left to die.

At least she left the racial angle out of her “amended” statement on Brown’s death, but even with that said, it’s also wrong and highly irresponsible for her to continue to perpetuate the “murder” lie. She’s smearing a police officer (Darren Wilson) who President Barack Obama’s own Justice Department concluded acted in self defense.

If Warren’s point is to highlight race issues between law enforcement and the black community, she needs to find another case to reference. The Michael Brown case, with the false narratives of “hands up, don’t shoot” and “gentle giant”, is not an example of the excessive use of police force against an unarmed black citizen she claims she wants to focus on.

Now, THIS Is Racist: White Woman Calls Police On Black Man Waiting For Her Parking Space

Westlake Legal Group racism-620x487 Now, THIS Is Racist: White Woman Calls Police On Black Man Waiting For Her Parking Space Royal Oak Police Dept. racism racial profiling Race Front Page Stories Featured Story Devin Myers Allow Media Exception

 

Devin Myers, a black man, dropped off his girlfriend at the Inn Season Cafe in Royal Oak, Michigan and went to search for a parking space in a busy lot. He spotted a woman and her son getting into their car and assumed they were about to vacate their space, so he waited to pull in. When it appeared she was not leaving, he found another space.

In the meantime, the woman who did not immediately leave her space called the police and told them that a man (Myers) had been “looking at her suspiciously” and had photographed she and her son.

As Myers walked into the restaurant, he was approached by two police officers who demanded to see his identification and detained him for over 20 minutes. Myers requested that a supervisor be called to the scene. “The supervisor continued to detain Myers, although he was not handcuffed or arrested.”

The manager of the restaurant, Erin Frey, told the Detroit Free Press that Myers’ girlfriend had been waiting inside the restaurant when the police stopped him and said he had been questioned for almost an hour.

A passerby filmed the incident and posted it on Facebook. The viral video is shown below.

This incident occurred on Tuesday. Following a brief investigation, Royal Oak Police Department Chief Corrigan O’Donahue issued a public apology to Myers which said:

On behalf of the police department, I would like to apologize to Mr. Myers for how he was treated. The officer had no legal right to demand identification and should have simply advised Mr. Myers why we were there and allowed him to go on his way.

This is not the practice of the Royal Oak Police Department and it is not acceptable. The supervisor has been disciplined and every Royal Oak police supervisor has received additional training in procedural justice.

(The full statement is printed at the bottom of this page.)

Simon Shaykhet of WXYZ shared a video of Myers “speaking out,” He tweeted that Myers “& an attorney met w/ Chief, to file formal COMPLAINT. He says he feels RACIALLY PROFILED & won’t return to Royal Oak.”

I would say that Myers has a pretty strong case.

Here is the full statement from the Royal Oak Police Department Chief: (via wxyz.com)

The Royal Oak Police Department has completed our internal investigation into the August 13 incident involving an African American man and the Royal Oak police.

On behalf of the police department, I would like to apologize to Mr. Myers for how he was treated. What should have been a very short encounter was extended when the officer involved insisted on getting Mr. Myers’ identification. The officer had no legal right to demand the identification and should have simply advised Mr. Myers why we were there and allowed him to go on his way. The officer involved is a new, probationary officer and he made a mistake. This officer will be provided with remedial training to address this issue.

Early in this encounter, Mr. Myers requested a supervisor make the scene. Although the first officer did not call for a supervisor, the second officer on scene did.

The responding supervisor did not handle this situation in a manner I expect Royal Oak supervisors to conduct themselves. He did quickly advise Mr. Myers that he was free to go; however, he did not effectively look into the situation or allow those present the opportunity to express their concerns.

This is not the practice of the Royal Oak Police Department and it is not acceptable. The supervisor has been disciplined and every Royal Oak police supervisor has received additional training in procedural justice.

This incident stemmed from a 911 call in which the caller reported she was uncomfortable because a male subject was circling her vehicle, staring at her from across the street, and was possibly taking pictures of her and her son. In total, Mr. Myers was verbally detained for approximately 19 minutes. A supervisor was called to the scene, per Mr. Myers request, about 6 minutes into the encounter and the supervisor arrived approximately 11 minutes later (17 minutes into the encounter). Mr. Myers was advised he was free to go 2 minutes after that.

This is an unfortunate incident where the ROPD did not live up to our own standards.

Corrective action has been taken and we will continue to hold all members of the ROPD to the highest standards.

Anderson Cooper: Decline of White American Demographic is “Exciting”

Westlake Legal Group 0ae6bbe4-8382-4a05-9bc0-a5c6a3b3689e-620x317 Anderson Cooper: Decline of White American Demographic is “Exciting” Univision United States racism Race Politics Minorities Media jorge ramos future Front Page Stories Featured Story demographics CNN Anderson Cooper Allow Media Exception

The weird thing about the “rise of white supremacy” obsession the media has going right now is that they’re doing and saying things to put themselves so far on the opposite side of white supremacy that they end up becoming racist against white people, even if they themselves are white.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper is one such anchor who recently called the demographic decline of white people in America “exciting,” and then immediately mentioned how it would make white supremacists angry.

He said this during his show on Wednesday night while speaking with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos.

“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.

Ramos agreed with Cooper and added that this is a positive development.

I’m not going to give any heed to the argument of what is and isn’t considered racism. Racism is racism, whether you’re racist to a black person or a white person.

And what we just watched was racism.

Cooper didn’t call the development “interesting,” or treated it with any kind of neutral or fact-based language. He called it “exciting.” That’s a word you use when talking about about a future event you’re looking forward to, like a concert featuring your favorite band or a vacation to a tropical location.

Despite its popularity right now, racism against white people is awful. The erasure of its cultures should be considered bad just as it would be considered if any other culture was steadily being wiped off the map. If it was any other kind of race, you’d see days of appreciation or awareness pop up.

Cultures change, and that’s a natural thing that happens. Why it’s “exciting” to see white culture disappear, however, is sinister at its heart. You’re essentially applauding the disappearance of a people. If for some reason it was the Hispanic population that was disappearing from America and Cooper had called it exciting, he’d be tarred and feathered for his racism.

However, racism against whites is not only okay, but it’s also encouraged in today’s society. I find that awfully disturbing.

San Francisco School Board Won’t Destroy Controversial Washington Mural, But They Will Cover it Up

Back in June a San Francisco school board kicked up controversy when it voted to remove an historical painting of George Washington from a local high school named after America’s first president.

The painting – “Life of George Washington” by  Russian-American artist Victor Arnautoff – depicts the life journey of George Washington, including scenes of him interacting with slaves and battling Indigenous tribes.

Westlake Legal Group 20190425-untitled-2-of-76-1024x678-620x411 San Francisco School Board Won’t Destroy Controversial Washington Mural, But They Will Cover it Up school board San Francisco Race painting mural Life of George Washington Front Page Stories Featured Story Education Censorship

The Sacramento Bee reports that the school board voted 4-3 to change the decision.

The San Francisco school board voted Tuesday to preserve but cover up a public high school mural depicting slavery and the killing of a Native American.

After a public outcry, the board voted 4-3 to reverse its June vote to paint over the “Life of Washington” mural at George Washington High School. Instead, staff were directed to work out alternatives to cover the mural with panels or other materials depicting “the heroism of people of color in America” and their fight against racism and poverty, said board President Stevon Cook, who made the proposal.

“We are not going to paint over public art,” he said. “We’re going to find another way to keep it from public view.”

Keeping art from public view sounds frighteningly Orwellian. It is understandable that in a state that has all but given up teaching comprehensive American history  that some would feel uncomfortable at such a mural being viewed by students. However, America’s history isn’t some Utopian fantasy where “people of color”  (ahem..you mean Black and Indigenous people) have led prosperous and successful lives free of oppression and prejudice. Our history is amazing and unique but also complicated and ugly. A school, of all places should be a place where people can view that history honestly, and react accordingly. It does our children no favors – particularly minority children – to literally cover up the icky parts of our nation’s story.

Not everyone agrees with the Board’s decision to cover the mural despite its depictions.

“I hope that this board would leave that mural alone. It tells the whole truth about Mr. Washington’s being complicit in the slave trade,” said the Rev. Amos Brown, president of the San Francisco branch of the NAACP.

“Art has to make us feel uncomfortable,” actor Danny Glover, a Washington High graduate, told reporters before the meeting. “That’s what art does.”

The Lives of Others is a fantastic film about artists living in communist East Germany in the 1980s. Berlin had a thriving but heavily monitored arts scene. The government allowed artists to create, but every public piece had to be approved by government censors and had to properly portray the government and the country’s history in a positive light. When government becomes involved in art, both history and artistry lose. Eventually, so do we all.

Tim Scott Blasts Democrats for Constant & Ridiculous Claims of Trump’s Racism – It’s the ‘Lowest Common Denominator’

Westlake Legal Group racism-2099029_1280-620x310 Tim Scott Blasts Democrats for Constant & Ridiculous Claims of Trump’s Racism – It’s the ‘Lowest Common Denominator’ Uncategorized Tim Scott The Ingraham Angle south carolina racism Race laura ingraham Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

 

 

Sen. Tim Scott doesn’t have time for the ridiculousness of racist obsession.

The South Carolina Republican’s made mince meat of the silliness before, which I covered in “Black Congressman Smacks Down Race-Baiting Nitwittery.”

Get ready for another smackdown.

And this time, it’s over the absolutely relentless castigation of Donald J. Trump.

Tim defended the President Monday on Fox News program The Ingraham Angle. He told host Laura the nonsense stinks:


“What you do smell — not hear, but smell — is fear. What you smell is fear on the Left.”

He’s right about the constant, constant, constant…did I say constant? If not, the constant claims of racism. Sometimes it seems that’s all there is. About Trump. About Republicans. About conservatives. About everything. It’s neverending, and neverendingly bizarre:

“They have been consistently using the race card. Every single time there’s a presidential run, you’ll hear John McCain — racist. Mitt Romney — racist. Ronald Reagan — racist. George Bush — racist. [George] W. [Bush] — racist.”


In my opinion, when it’s all they appear to know to say, the claims cease to have any meaning. It just becomes noise. It becomes the sound of a side without any ideas.

Tim colored it the lowest of the low:

“Why do they continue to find that narrative? Because they understand that the lowest common denominator in politics is fear and division.”

The 2nd-term congressman also served up this:

“Well, there’s no doubt that President Trump is not a racist, and the facts are very simple: that the same folks that voted for me [also] voted for President Trump because President Trump made promises to the voters, and he’s keeping the promises. So without any question, if you look at his legacy, it will be his accomplishments in office == frankly, helping in many, many ways African Americans. … President Trump has been able to deliver policies that have promoted, encouraged, and inspired growth in the African American community, economically in a way that no president has done in the last 40 years. This president is not a racist.”

You know that “ideas” thing I said? Tim seems to be of a like mind:

“Look, if you were running on the Left, would you run on the Green New Deal? Would you run on the 70% new income tax? Would you run on a 4% wealth tax? Would you run on a financial transaction tax? No. What else would you run on? Well, you’d run on some tired narrative that the President, because he’s a Republican, has to be somehow a racist.”

The senator also gave me an Amen here:

“It is inconsistent with reality. It’s a different dimension that I don’t understand, and frankly, the more you use the concept of racism, the more we grow “ism” fatigue in this country. And that is a terrible place for us to be. The greatest threat by overusing racism is that when there is an actual challenge, you’ve cried wolf in the wilderness one time too many.”

Tim Scott is right on the money. When will so many Democrats determine that talk of positive solutions more effectively compel voters than do cries of negative problems?

And when they never stop harping on the same problem, after a time, incidentally, it tends to suggest they don’t have a solution.

Bonus challenge: The problem doesn’t exist — not in the way they perpetually charge.

#Goofy

The Dems could learn a thing or two from Tim Scott.

Pining for the Pinnacle of Stupid: Students Petition to Change White Pedestrian Crossing Lights to a Shade Closer to People of Color

Westlake Legal Group car-831928_1280-620x410 Pining for the Pinnacle of Stupid: Students Petition to Change White Pedestrian Crossing Lights to a Shade Closer to People of Color woke Uncategorized Traffic stick figure Social Justice racism Race Politics george washington university george the colonial Front Page Stories Education democrats Culture crosswalk crossing sign college campus reform

 

 

We’ve all been there: You’re about to cross the street, when suddenly you spot a sign with a stick figure, and you’re paralyzed by oppression. And it’s basically the same as the worst things that have ever happened to anyone in history, because you wisely and thoughtfully understand the high stakes and scope of potential human suffering.

And if there’s any justice in this world, you’ll one day be delivered from the horror that is straight lines drawn in a configuration that triggers you. Comprised of an absolutely soul-crushing hue.

Or you could just cross the street and go on with your life.

According to Campus Reform, a group of students at George Washington University erred somewhere between those two ideas, in the name of that most superior of all things on the planet — inclusivity.

New Woke Rules, so far as I can tell:

Most virtuous thing: inclusivity
Most unacceptable thing: anything “problematic”
Most inclusive thing: anything exclusively left-wing
Most racist thing: all things that can be said to be things

In a recent CR video, Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai polled GWU peeps: Would they be willing to sign a petition demanding a ban on the ubiquitous — say it ain’t so — white stick figure that signals “Walk” on pedestrian crossing signs, on account of its dastardly oppression?

Most in the clip gave a joyful Affirmative.

The college was chosen because of another mercilessly soul-crushing, problematic issue that the student body just voted to squash: its now-defunct mascot, George the Colonial.

As per the petition to junk George, his presence was “received as extremely offensive not only by students of the University, but the nation and world at large.”

Wow — these youngsters know about the whole world. Touché.

Indeed, Jerky George “[glorified] the act of systemic oppression.”

Here’s how CR’s goofy, phony-baloney petition read:

“As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross. Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this. … [We] vehemently urge the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”

It’s almost as if you can hear the air leaking from their brains as they speak.

I wonder if any of the Woke Warriors — in an effort to banish the white light — have considered that light itself is white? In fact, in the video, they’re also standing in — yea, they are absolutely bathing inwhite light. The light of the sun. They’re drenched in it. In the horrible, inherently and unbearably evil color of white.

No word yet on how they’ll be able to see the stick figure if it’s changed to black — the absence of all light. Will people being hit by cars be less “problematic”?

Either way, as I understand the rules to go, the black stick figure will be inclusive. Even though no human beings are actually black. Or — it should be noted in the consideration of how idiotic this entire thing is — white.

In the future, we’re all in big trouble.

Trump Grates Biden Like Cheese Over His Monumentally Mookish ‘Poor Kids’ Remark

During a campaign speech in Iowa Thursday, Joe Biden managed to push this over his bottom teeth:

“Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

Let’s do that again:

“Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

Take your time…

What’s weirder, people started to clap.

Then he added:

“Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids. No, I really mean it. But think how we think about it.”

Huh?

As for the first part, what would the media have made of such a comment by Donald Trump?

Brett Kavanaugh?

George Bush?

Voldemort?– I’m just assuming he’s supposed to be a Republican.

As the President left for a fundraiser Friday, he recounted to White House reporters his reaction to Biden’s goof:

“He made that comment, I said, ‘Whoa.’”

Furthermore:

“This is not somebody you can have as your president. But if he got the nomination, I’d be thrilled.”

Classic Trump.

But not as much as this:

“Joe is not playing with a full deck.”

At least one member of the media tried to run cover for the former VP.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell falsely charged the Trump campaign with cropping footage of Joe’s speech in order to unfairly give the appearance of a gooberish gaffe:

“Joe Biden, after a widely praised speech against the President 24 hours ago, is now facing a Trump campaign counter-attack, seizing on a few words on the campaign trail. The former vice president accusing the President of being a racist who emboldens white supremacists by aligning himself with their cause, but it’s Biden’s bungling of his own remarks that’s making headlines this morning.”

She then played Joe’s statement, in context:

“We should challenge these students. We should challenge students in these schools that have advanced placement programs in these schools. We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids. Wealthy kids. Black kids. Asian kids.”

Uhhh…it didn’t get better.

Oh, and also: The initial Trump clip actually included the full context.

Trump’s Rapid Response Director, Andrew Clark, laid it out:

Yep.

Joe seems poised for a whole lot more passes; I predicted as much. A Republican with his record might never had made it this far: After all, he’s already said he’ll “be damned” if he pays reparations. And he’s called gays “security risks.” Let Voldemort try that.

FBI Arrests Alleged Would-Be Neo-Nazi Terrorist Before He Can Commit Mass Murder at a Las Vegas Synagogue

The U.S. Attorney’s Office released a statement Friday revealing details of a Las Vegas security guard’s arrest.

The 23-year-old’s been “charged by a criminal complaint with one count of possession of an unregistered firearm – namely, the component parts of a destructive device.”

That’d be…like one of these:

As per the 11-page criminal complaint lodged against him, the man was allegedly engaged in encrypted communication with those identifying with the National Socialist Movement in order to attack a synagogue in the desert town. Additionally, he may have been surveilling an LGBTQ-friendly bar for nefarious reasons.

What’s the NSM all about? According to the District of Nevada Attorney’s Office, it’s this:

Members believe in the superiority of the white race and have a common goal of challenging the established laws, social order, and government via terrorism and other violent acts.

Tampa Bay’s ABC Action News reports that the Las Vegas Joint Terrorism Task Force began investigating the man in April, after it was learned he was messaging with neo-Nazi organization Atomwaffen Division.

The guy’s got uncanny taste in friends.

During a search, officials discovered “a notebook with several hand-drawn schematics for a potential Las Vegas-area attack.” Also drawn: “timed explosive devises.”

Yeah — this guy could use an intervention.

It just keeps getting worse — in his bedroom, law enforcement found bomb parts and explosive-friendly chemicals. Bonus: an “AR-15-style rifle and a bolt-action rifle.”

Definitely intervention material.

The guns were impounded.

Here’s what FBI Las Vegas Division Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse had to say about all this:

“The FBI’s Las Vegas Joint Terrorism Task Force is committed to protecting our community from any threat of domestic terrorism and I could not be more proud of the work they did in this case. … As this complaint illustrates, the FBI will always be proactive to combat threats that cross a line from free speech to potential violence.”

Assuming the charges are accurate, thank God agencies intercepted the man and his efforts. We could’ve been soon reading about the death and destruction he caused. Instead, we’re finding out he faces up to a decade in prison.

Law enforcement took care of business.

Surely right now, there are other would-be terrorists. As George W. Bush directed after 9/11, we must stay vigilant. Observe and report. For most every evil deed, I believe, there were signs not taken seriously enough to prevent it.

But the citizens of Las Vegas can sleep a little bit more soundly tonight, knowing an armed and dangerous aspiring assassin is behind bars.

Now are you ready to see the guy? He already made the headlines, back in 2016. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Conor Climo, your trusty neighborhood watchman:
