Uncomfortable questions to the nationalists in the White house

What has this to do with the plot of Christchurch with Donald Trump ? Much, say its opponents. For the assassin of the US President is a "Symbol of resurgent white identity". It says So in his Manifesto. "Trump has not invented hatred, racism and anti-Semitism," said the democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand, "but he has added fuel to a fire that is burning now more violent than I have ever experienced."

The President himself wants to know anything. I got nothing to do this stop with him. "The Fake-News media work Overtime to give me the blame for the terrible attack in new Zealand attach", he tweeted. The people should just read the whole Manifesto of the bomber, said his Advisor, Kelly Anne Conway, then you would see that trump's Name is "one Time only" show.

The debate, which is now running in the US for a few days, might not be originated in the first place, if Trump would have responded to the attack, in which a right-wing extremist perpetrators shot and killed in two mosques of 50 people, different. Another President might have spoken to all those Muslims in America and around the world, your compassion, the fear after the attack for their safety. He would have been able to emphasize that attacks on praying people, are an attack on the freedom of religion.

But Trump is no such President. After a standard condolences the day of the attack, he went over on the weekend to praise on Twitter, a presenter from Fox News, which had been suspended by the conservative TV channel because of the Islam-critical comments. The fit to Trumps of own history. Since the entry barrier for Muslims, which he held as President. As the scenes of his campaign, when he mused on the question of a trailer about Muslims is best to get rid of. And because of all the Islamophobic Tweets are right-wing websites, has spread Trump on Twitter.

With his response to Christchurch the President fell into a pattern, to describe his critics: Commits somewhere, a Muslim is a crime, but Trump with fervor. On the other hand is somewhere a Muslim is the victim of a crime, do not hear from Trump a lot of. Confirmed these critics see a further statement Trumps, which he made in the Wake of Christchurch: "no," said he to a reporter's question, he believe that white nationalism was a growing threat.

Significantly more nationalist Propaganda

there was enough evidence for the contrary. In October an anti-Semite shot and killed in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, eleven people, after he had declared in an extreme right-wing Internet forum, and that Jewish circles were working, white Americans to be replaced by immigrants. A self-proclaimed Trump-trailer sent at the same time pipe bombs to political opponents of the President. And a few weeks ago the police arrested had prepared a right-wing officer in the U.S. coast guard, the terrorist attacks, which were designed to be the target of a "white state".

As the organization Anti-Defamation League, held recently, were quite involved in extreme last year, 50 murders in the United States, an increase of 35 percent compared to 2017. Also, the number of observed Propaganda activities by nationalists recently increased from 421 events in the year 2017, 1187 events in the year 2018. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the number of active extremist groups also increased to a record high.

The phenomenon is not new. The United States already had in front of President Trump is a Problem with extreme-right violence. In 1995, a Terrorist killed in an attack in Oklahoma 168 people. The difference to the time before the Trump is: Today, the slogans of America are racists in the White house. Trump insulted black athletes and politicians as the least intelligent. Participants of the neo-Nazi buildup in Charlottesville he described as "very fine people". When he speaks about illegal immigrants, he talks of "animals" and "Invasion".

so, Christchurch, acts of violence of law, to do extreme something to do with Trump? As long as the U.S. President is sticking to his rhetoric, he will have to leave such questions like that.
