    'He has sparked an insurgency,' Stormfront founder says.


    The Ku Klux Klan is using Donald Trump as a talking point in its outreach efforts. Stormfront, the most prominent American white supremacist website, is upgrading its servers in part to cope with a Trump traffic spike. And former Louisiana Rep. David Duke reports that the businessman has given more Americans cover to speak out loud about white nationalism than at any time since his own political campaigns in the 1990s.

    As hate group monitors at the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League warn that Trump’s rhetoric is conducive to anti-Muslim violence, white nationalist leaders are capitalizing on his candidacy to invigorate and expand their movement.

    The terrorist campaign against American ideals is winning. Fear is rampant. Gun sales are soaring. Hate crimes are increasing. Bearded hipsters are being mistaken for Muslims. And 83 percent of voters believe a large-scale terrorist attack is likely here in the near future. Some Americans are now so afraid that they are willing to trade in the sacred beliefs that define America for some vague promises of security from the very people who are spreading the terror. “Go ahead and burn the Constitution — just don’t hurt me at the mall.” That’s how effective this terrorism is.

    I’m not talking about ISIS. I’m talking about Donald Trump.

    This is not hyperbole. Not a metaphor. Webster defines terrorism as “the use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal; the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.”

    Something I noticed when Trump "retreeted" the bogus stats stating that AAs committed 80% of the homicides against. WP, when in fact it is WP who commit 82% of the homicides against WP.

    Shall we call it White on White crime?

    I digress...

    What I noticed was it was the AA publications that published the corrected data. But, largely the white media simply stated that the statistics were incorrect, no suggestion of how grossly incorrect they were. The damage was already done. And, not enough was done to dispel the myth.
