FROM 01/28/2019 | Truthdig

BY Chris Hedges

The ruling elites are painfully aware that the foundations of American power are rotting. The outsourcing of manufacturing in the United States and the plunging of over half the population into poverty will, they know, not be reversed. The self-destructive government shutdown has been only one of numerous assaults on the efficiency of the administrative […]

A steady stream of transnational right-wing populists and nationalists has trekked to South Africa in recent years hoping to leverage the country’s fraught racial history for their own global aims.

Netanyahu Forms Alliances with Far-Right Authoritarian Leaders

FROM 01/26/2019 | Real News Network

BY Marc Steiner

Shir Hever says Netanyahu is abusing his image as a protector of the Jewish people, and cuts deals with far-right and anti-Semitic heads of state, absolving them of their racism towards Jews in exchange for their superficial support for the State of Israel. All this, to win the upcoming Israeli elections. MARC STEINER: Welcome to The […]

Blackshirt bedroom fascist plots to infiltrate Scottish local councils

FROM 01/19/2019 | Daily Record

BY Billy Briggs

Meet Scotland’s self-styled heir to bygone Blackshirt Oswald Mosley. Gary Raikes loves dressing up in the style of the 30s leader of the British Union of Fascists. And he’s a proper comedy turn as he belts out right-wing rhetoric from an amateurish podium set against a grubby background of neo-Nazi flags. Pathetic Raikes’s address is […]

BY Yasmin Alibhai-Brown

Among the agitating gilets jaunes in Paris were known anti-Semites. One banner described President Emmanuel Macron as a “whore of the Jews”. Others abused the Jewish billionaires, the Rothschilds. Ukip now has official links with those with similar views. Among them is Paul Joseph Watson, an editor of Infowars, a website that promulgates Jewish conspiracy theories. […]

These corporations, with little or no oversight, surveil and monitor their workforces. They conduct random drug testing, […]

‘America First’ and the Origin of the Modern Jewish Conspiracy

FROM 01/09/2019 | Religion Dispatches

BY Eric C. Miller

Historian Paul Hanebrink discusses the origin and uses of the Judeo-Bolshevik myth as a grand conspiracy that inspired the Holocaust and how crucial parts of it survived under the umbrella of “Judeo-Christian civilization.” Among other concerning changes, the Donald Trump era has played host to a rise in white supremacy, anti-Semitism, and increasing incidences of […]

Authoritarians, Fear, and the Culture Wars

FROM 01/10/2019 | Patheos

BY CAPTAIN CASSIDY

Today, we begin a new series of posts centering on authoritarian personalities. This concept is absolutely crucial to understanding those worst-of-the-worst Christians: culture warriors. To start us off, I’ll define these terms so we can begin exploring the two subtypes involved here, examine what motivates them, and then start looking at why authoritarians are like that. NOTE: […]
