"Attacks like Portland's will keep happening unless we all fight white supremacy," lawyer Arjun Singh Sethi writes in The Washington Post. He was referring to accounts of multiple stabbings by a violent racist that left two dead and one injured when they stepped in to intervene against harassment of two teenage girls, one reportedly a Muslim. And, as a wade through his opportunistic screed reveals, he's dancing in the blood to reinforce cherry-picked numbers and advance the meme that "The greatest threat facing our country comes from homegrown white supremacists, not Muslims or refugees."
It happened in "progressive" Portland on a train where knives with blades over 3½ inches are banned (law enforcement exempted, of course), and the stabbing victims appear to have all been white. But if you ignore law being ignored and the reality of who was actually injured, and just let Sethi control the narrative, it feeds the real idea being promulgated - that it's Donald Trump's fault:
That, of course, means anyone who does not support open borders is a bigot and a xenophobe.
Much is made of the suspect's Nazi sympathies, to further bolster the "right wing extremist" smears against Americans who reject "progressivism" and instead believe in government of limited powers as delegated and enumerated in the Constitution. The glossed-over problem with that: The Nazis were "National Socialists." And while liars try to refute that by pointing out how Hitler was bitter enemies with communists, that struggle was over whose totalitarian vision and regime would prevail.
"It is now clear beyond all reasonable doubt that Hitler and his associates believed they were socialists, and that others, including democratic socialists, thought so too. The title of National Socialism was not hypocritical," author George Watson documented in "Hitler and the Socialist Dream ." (By way of "credentials," Watson was a "scholar, literary critic, historian, a fellow of St John's College and professor of English at Cambridge University," who, rather than being some "far right" apologist, was also, incidentally, "an active member of the Liberal Party [who] in his will ... left £950,000 to the Liberal Democrats.")
