White Nationalism hearing escalates as right-winged pundit Candace Owen's comments on Hitler were heard
Both sides of the aisle were eager to note just how forcefully, at least superficially, they condemned white nationalism. Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) opened the hearings by saying it was “sadly necessary to examine an urgent crisis in our country.” Ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA), meanwhile, claimed that House Republicans had “led the chamber’s unequivocal revocation of white nationalism.”Guess who has committed more crimes in the meantime: Unite The Right, or the Black Identity Movement? I guess that even the police has committed more crimes than those BI Extremists...
Some of those testifying did address glaring problems in the current approach to combating white nationalism. Eileen Hershenov of the Anti-Defamation League noted how fringe online communities like Gab and 8chan had created “24/7 white nationalist rallies.” Kristen Clarke of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law asked why the FBI had devoted resources to investigating Black Identity Extremists while allowing white supremacist movements to grow at an alarming rate.
Owens responded by claiming Lieu was racist. “I think its apparent that Mr. Lieu thinks that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety,” she said before Nadler cut her off.If I am not mistaken (I didn't watch it (yet)), this is the video one has to watch to hear her remark in full length. I will leave it for those who are interested in hearing how much she was distorted during the hearing, although I don't believe it can become any better than her stating Hitler only wanted to make Germany great again by extincting minorities to maintain an ethnically clean Herenmenschen society: USA TODAY and video of hers
What can be said at the least it that those who are responsible for the surge in hate crimes have exposed themselves during the hearing. So to say, the hearing was worth it because now, we know that the Republicans will stay the major threat to a safer society. Beside fearmongering, whitewashing their own and making false claims against Democrats, they had nothing to present. Thanks a lot.

Petition to ban Swedish Youtube star Pewdiepie didn't surprise him at all
Felix went to counter the allegations of instances in which he had been accused of propagating white supremacy. Some of them, according to the Felix, were fake and didn't happen at all, while the others he explained by saying that hey happened a long time ago.The article from WSJ: Wall Street Journal
The response comes after Maria Ruiz's petition, which called for putting a stop to normalizing white supremacy on the internet and referred to PewDiePie's channel as hotbed of fomenting white-supremacist ideas, gathered over 77,000 signatures.
This is not the first time that the Swedish content-creator has faced flak for racism and white-supremacist content. In 2017, US's Wall Street Journal uncovered nine videos and clips of the Swede in which he can allegedly be seen displaying anti-Semitic and racist content.

New Zealand buyback of guns could cost millions
"It's better to prepare for the worst and think of the upper limit. It could cost – and this is an extravagant statement but it may well be true – it could cost up to $300 million to set what is wrong, right."Damn, this is a costy occupation, I must admit. We'd better outsource it on the vendors, to save some of the tax money. 😉
He said the Port Arthur massacre in Australia in 1996 "should have been a signal to us. We didn't act then, either".
At the moment, it is unknown how many firearms there are in New Zealand but the number is estimated to range between 1.2 million and 1.5 million.

Österreichische Regierung gedenkt, Identitäre Bewegung zu verbieten
Eine mögliche Auflösung sei keine Entscheidung der Politik, sondern der Behörden, betonte Kurz. Eine Vereinsauflösung werde es geben, "wenn es die Gesetze hergeben". Das Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz und Terrorismusbekämpfung habe natürlich seine Arbeit schon aufgenommen, sagte Kurz auf die Journalistenfrage, ob das BVT (das derzeit im Fokus eines Untersuchungsausschusses steht) überhaupt handlungsfähig sei.[Heiteres Gelächter]
Gefragt, ob er Verbindungen der FPÖ zu den Identitären ausschließen könne, unterstrich Strache: "Die freiheitliche Partei hat mit den Identitären nichts zu tun." Es sei auch klare Beschlusslage der Partei, dass jemand, der sich dort engagiere, "auch keinerlei Funktion in FPÖ innehaben kann".

Austrischer Identitärenchef Martin Sellner bezahlt von Christchurch-Attentäter
Während nun eine Spende des Attentäters von Christchurch/Neuseeland an Identitären-Chef Sellner Gegenstand der Ermittlungen war, riefen in der Vergangenheit mehrmals Aktionen der Aktivisten die Justiz auf den Plan. Diese reichten von Störung von Veranstaltungen bis hin zum Besteigen von Hausfassaden und -dächern, wie etwa im Jahr 2016, als Identitäre das Dach der Parteizentrale der steirischen Grünen in Graz erklommen. Dort enthüllten sie ein Transparent mit der Aufschrift „Islamisierung tötet“, schütteten an Blut erinnernde rote Farbe aufs Dach und entzündeten bengalische Feuer.
Auch einen Prozess um eine Störaktion bei einer Aufführung von Elfriede Jelineks „Schutzbefohlenen“ im Audimax der Universität Wien (im Jahr 2016) überstanden die Identitären ohne Verurteilung. Die Störaktion sei keine Verhinderung einer Versammlung gewesen, so das Urteil.
Auch orten Kritiker zumindest indirekten Einfluss auf die Politik von Türkis-Blau: So war es Identitären-Chef Sellner und dessen Bewegung, die die Ablehnung des UN-Migrationspaktes als eine der ersten thematisierten. Die FPÖ trommelte ebenfalls gegen den Pakt und schlussendlich unterstützte die österreichische Regierung das Abkommen auch offiziell nicht.

C'est un message fort que des milliers de femmes ont lancé en faveur de la tolérance dans leur pays, la Nouvelle-Zélande. Bien que non-musulmanes, elles ont porté un voile islamique pour dire leur solidarité avec les 50 victimes exécutées dans des mosquées de Christchurch il y a une semaine.

Ban on military rifles executed in New Zealand, subsequent to Christchurch mosque shooting
Jacinda Ardern said the ban goes into effect immediately and would be followed by legislation next month. New Zealand's citizens should make arrangements to turn in weapons banned under the new laws, Ardern told the nation in a live television announcement.
She said an amnesty will be put in place for weapons to be handed in by citizens. The New Zealand cabinet will also implement a buyback plan for banned weapons, and there will be "tightly regulated" exemptions for some owners such as hunters and farmers.
About 1.5 million firearms are owned – legally and illegally – by civilians in New Zealand, according to police data tracked by GunPolicy.org, a website run in conjunction with the University of Sydney. This equates to about 30 firearms per 100 people. In the United States, the rate is approximately 120 firearms per 100 people, according to the site.

Why? Censorship is a method used by totalitarian regimes to cover dangerous truths. Censoring the event and pretending it did not happen reminds me of how one totalitarian communist regime tried to cover Jan Palach's self-sacrificing potest against it, and for a few decades completely removed him from history. Us doing the same makes it look like Brenton Tarrant had something true to say that we are afraid of and that needs to be covered. That is not true. Let's not make a martyr out of a coward.
We are better than this. He wanted attention and committed something deserving a lot of attention. Let him have it and show us what #rightism is about.
Here is what you need to know:
The guy's name is Brenton Tarrant. He looks like this:
Here is the full NSFW video he posted on Facebook, recorded with GoPro on his head, of him brutally killing 50 people:
https://uploadfiles.io/ccfqa (If it gets deleted, let me know, I'll reupload it)
Here is his so called manifesto. It is an ugly formatted Word document full of grammatical and typographical errors -- which says something about Brenton's education and intelligence -- it is called The Great Replacement and is honestly a very stupid writing that's worth reading exactly for that reason:
Suddenly he doesn't look so interesting and mysterious, does he?
Take a look at it and see how stupid it all is. This was Brenton's one minute of fame he so desired. This is what politicians such as #Trump are responsible for.
