Donald Trump Jr. just used an anti-Semitic neo-Nazi conspiracy theory in disgusting midterm election attack

If anyone was wondering how white supremacist conspiracy theories that began in the darkest warrens of the internet found their way into the mainstream, look no further than the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr.

In a tweet this morning, Trump Jr. parroted “white genocide” conspiracies — the very same kind that motivated Roberts Bowers, who murdered eleven innocent people with an assault rifle at a Pittsburgh synagogue last weekend — as part of a ham-fisted attack on independent Senator Angus King of Maine.

The idea that socialists and Jews are plotting to destroy the white race through forced assimilation of non-white people was developed in 1995 by neo-Nazi David Lane and mainstreamed by people like FOX host Tucker Carlson, FOX host Laura Ingraham, founder of the fascist gang “the Proud Boys” Gavin McInnes, ex-KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, Rep. Steve King of Iowa, and Alex Jones of InfoWars.

When the white supremacists marched in Charlottesville and chanted “Jews will not replace us,” they were announcing that they believed there was a Jewish conspiracy to “replace” American whites by resettling Muslim refugees and Hispanic migrants in white areas — which is exactly what Don Jr. is saying in his tweet above.

It’s this same conspiracy theory that’s at the heart of the Republican obsession with the migrant caravan from Honduras, which they allege is being funded and organized by Jewish billionaire George Soros.

The President himself has been openly promoting these kinds of ideas with his barely concealed dog whistles; his son might as well have written the Fourteen Words — the despicably popular white supremacist slogan — in this tweet for all its subtlety. 

In case the message wasn’t clear enough, Don Jr. included “88” in his tweet, which is a number that has special significance for white supremacists. King has voted with Schumer 83% of the time.

Far from toning down the rhetoric in the week following the worst anti-Semitic hate crime in American history, the right-wing is turning the blood-and-soil dial up all the way up.

The Republican Party and the American right-wing in general is embracing full-blown white supremacist fascism before our very eyes, and it’s imperative that we retake the Houses of Congress next week and drive the scum-sucking Nazis back into the filthy warrens from whence they came. VOTE!
