Well his podcast is the biggest in the world, and has wider distribution than the major news networks. I don't think it is just Gen X.
Definitely not what I meant but yes you are totally correct. He's huge. I like his show incidentally, I think he's helped bring stuff into the mainstream that is valuable.

" The leader of The Base, Rinaldo Nazzaro, who was born in the U.S., runs his operation out of his apartment in St. Petersburg, Russia, which he discusses in the recordings. "

Not even subtle about it.

I keep thinking this is an internet problem. You saw this with “deviants” vs porn etc and with the rise of internet communities and social media this was bound to happen.

Who woulda thought that the very thing that allows for spreading democratic good can also be used badly to amplify fringe elements and make them an existential threat.

I suspect Sa going through the same and political parties are having to make tough choices.

White Supremacists are staring to endorse the Democrats. Trump stood firm on the civil right laws that do not allow discrimination based on race where Democratic super-majority of California is repealing this protection.


This will allow White Supremacists organisations and companies to actively discriminate against any ethnicity. This flies against the federal law which is ironically one of the reasons of the Civil War

‘It needs to stop’: Whitmer slams Donald Trump for rally attack
Trump’s barbs at the Michigan governor, the target of a kidnapping plot, prompted chants of ‘lock her up’ on Saturday.




Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has condemned United States President Donald Trump’s rhetoric towards her at a campaign rally.


The Saturday night barbs, which came at an event in Michigan, included Donald Trump criticising Whitmer’s stringent response to the coronavirus, calling her “dishonest” and appearing to make light of a foiled plot to kidnap the Democratic governor.

“They said she was threatened,” Trump told the crowd. “And she blamed me. Hopefully, you’ll be sending her packing pretty soon.”


The crowd responded with chants of “lock her up”, a refrain of a phrase used against then-candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.


Whitmer wrote on Twitter on Saturday: “This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials’ lives in danger while we try to save the lives of our fellow Americans. It needs to stop.”

Chief white supremacist

There's just one small problem - none of that is racist :D

He says that about WHITE REPORTERS AND POLITICIANS too, is he racist toward them as well then?? No? Yeah that's right you leftist idiots just make stuff like that up and then call Trump racist. He's not, he just doesn't like bought and paid for reporters. That just makes his base even more supportive of him, so it has the opposite effect of the intention, and anyone with half a brain can see what you lot are doing with propaganda pieces like that.

Lara Trump Defends ‘Lock Her Up’ Chants About Whitmer, Says Trump Was ‘Having Fun’
“He was having fun at a Trump rally,” the president’s daughter-in-law said of his actions at a Michigan rally after a foiled abduction of the state’s governor.

Lara Trump on Sunday defended calls for Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to be locked up that came during a rally for her father-in-law, President Donald Trump on Saturday. She claimed the calls had “nothing to do with” a recent kidnapping plot against Whitmer and that Trump was merely having fun.

“He wasn’t doing anything, I don’t think, to provoke people to threaten this woman, at all,” Lara Trump, who serves as a senior Trump campaign adviser, said of the president on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “He was having fun at a Trump rally. And quite frankly, there are bigger issues than this.”

Her dismissal of the chants came hours after a crowd of Trump supporters in Michigan called for the governor to be locked up in response to the state’s handling of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.




“You’ve got to get your governor to open up your state, OK? And get your schools open. Get your schools open. The schools have to be open, right?” Trump told the crowd as some in the group began chanting, “Lock her up!”

Trump appeared to laugh at the chant. He added: “Lock ’em all up.”

'It is serious and intense': white supremacist domestic terror threat looms large in US




From the frequency of attacks to the scope of ambition, racist terror groups – encouraged by the president, are showing unparalleled activity in the modern era

On 6 October Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of homeland security, released his department’s annual assessment of violent threats to the nation. Analysts didn’t have to dig deep into the assessment to discover its alarming content.

In a foreword, Wolf wrote that he was “particularly concerned about white supremacist violent extremists who have been exceptionally lethal in their abhorrent, targeted attacks in recent years. [They] seek to force ideological change in the United States through violence, death, and destruction.”
Two days later, the FBI swooped. It arrested 13 rightwing extremists who had allegedly been plotting to carry out a range of attacks in Michigan, including the kidnapping of Democratic governor Gretchen Whitmer.

Later revelations revealed that a group of anti-government paramilitaries that included some of those arrested had also discussed kidnapping the governor of Virginia.

The double strike, just days apart, of the threat assessment and the Michigan plot arrests marked an important moment in America’s tortured history of racist terrorism. US authorities appeared not only to have woken up finally to the extent of the white supremacist threat but were actually doing something about it.

As the FBI director Christopher Wray told Congress in February, “racially and ethnically motivated violent extremists” have become the “primary source of ideologically-motivated lethal incidents” in the US. The danger overshadowed the jihadist threat that has dominated the security debate since 9/11.

Shame TysonRoux. How do you operate a normal life when you seem to malfunction at the slightest mention of Trump and then the constant TDR you spew forth everyday. Go outside. Take a break, have a dop and chill.

The DHS is delusional. The left are literally threatening to blow up police stations. They're getting more and more violent. They are marching through the streets attacking people and destroying and shouting death to America, but ok then.
The difference is the far left is full of soyboys who like to play pretend and the far right full of gun crazed lunitics who know how to actually use their weapons.

What about those two cops that were shot in the head point blank range just sitting in their car. The leftist media like to quickly forget about those incidents.
