The title of this post is the Anti-Defamation League’s wording.
To this Jewish supremacist group, white people are not allowed to legally protest or stand up for Western civilization. They call it hate. These Jewish subversives are the real haters.
The ADL admits here to attempting to identify the white protesters. What they plan to do with they information they don’t say. They claim to know the identities of around 40 percent of attendees at the Charlottesville rally in August. Although IDing people may be legal, it’s a form of intimidation.
The ADL has made no effort to identify the violent Antifa.
Excerpt from ADL Blog
Unite the Right drew white supremacists from at least 35 states, according to new research from ADL’s Center on Extremism. This is evidence of the event’s widespread appeal, and of the ability of these extremists to attract a broad, national audience, who are willing to travel significant distances to express their hateful views.
Center on Extremism analysts have identified 200 of the estimated 500-600 individuals who showed up to support Unite the Right. This number does not include the 2000 or so counter-protesters who also lined Charlottesville’s streets on August 12. Most were from the Eastern half of the country, but further-flung states like Alaska, California, Arizona and Washington were also represented. This is attributable in large part to the unprecedented variety of white supremacist groups — from racist skinheads to Klan members — who came together for this event.
The willingness of so many people to commit both time and financial resources to travel for the cause points to a movement energized by the leadership of the alt right, and actively capitalizing on a perceived window of opportunity to spread their message and recruit new members.
It’s also a demonstration of the alt right’s successful transition from a largely an online, or virtual, phenomenon to a “real world” movement.
Among the COE findings:
The alt right is overwhelmingly young and male; only seven percent of the 200 identified Unite the Right attendees were women.
Most alt right adherents are new to white supremacy; this movement is their first association with the ideology.
Unite the Right drew 5 times as many people as any white supremacist event in the last decade. (Prior to Unite the Right, the two largest events in 2017 were the National Socialist Movement’s April 2017 rally in Pikeville, Kentucky, which drew 100 to 125 individuals, and the alt right’s first Charlottesville rally, held in May, which drew 75 to 100 people).
Don’t let the ADL lull you into thinking that the alt-right has arrived. We haven’t. There’s still a lot of work to do.
