Charlottesville and Trump reaction

Disappointingly for those of us who would rather forget all about him, Trump took center stage again this week after Saturday’s events in Charlottesville, VA, which left one protester dead and many more injured. Ostensibly at issue during the protests was the fate of a statue of Confederate General, Robert E. Lee, one of many hundreds of Confederate statues and monuments that have become key political battlegrounds between activists; with the choice sometimes boiling down to that of ‘museum of dumpster?‘.

At a press conference that was scheduled to focus on infrastructure projects, Trump took questions on Charlottesville, turning in a combative performance against ‘fake news’, while his insistence on blaming both the alt-right and those who opposed them has drawn huge criticism; this Guardian piece probably went furthest with its hyperbole, insisting that Trump is a ‘neo-Nazi sympathiser’.

We looked at what the Confederacy represents to both whites and blacks in the Southern states, and at how one myth; that the North fought the South to end slavery is still propagated, despite clear evidence that Lincoln’s priority was not ending slavery, but saving the Union. Interestingly, the Democratic Party was the party of slavery, a fact that appears to be largely forgotten in today’s political discussion.

Looking at the links between the Confederacy and Nazism, we noted that the Nazis studied the US prohibition on mixed-marriage, and that only the most radical Nazis wished to attempt a direct copy. This question of US-influence on Nazi legislation has been the subject of research by James Whitman and Dinesh D’Souza.

On the relatively new terms, alt-right and alt-left, we discussed their origins, and how they are rather problematic. Some on the left argue that alt-left is a fiction, motivated by the attempt to push the ‘horseshoe’ theory of politics, where the opposite of a fascist is… a fascist. The alt-right, by turn, was given a huge boost by an August Hillary Clinton campaign speech (though she didn’t mention it by name), as this New Yorker piece explains.

BBC, No more boys, No more girls…

Rather than re-educate its own executives over the issue of the corporation’s gender pay gap, the BBC continues, under all manner of pretexts, to show an unhealthy interest in the development of children. While Jimmy Savile’s roaming hands may now be safely beyond use, the BBC’s latest wheeze is a piece of social engineering that entertains the idea of raising children ‘gender-free’.

Inside Track #16 with David Condon & Jason Kennedy – LISTEN NOW!

Insert your own pussy joke here

The crimes of Hillary Clinton: Before her murder, Honduran activist, Berta Caceres pointed an accusatory finger at Hillary, holding her responsible for the coup that destabilized (and continues to destabilize) her country. The 2009 coup featured democratically-elected president, Manuel Zelaya, being taken in his pyjamas and stuck on a plane to Cost Rica; a right-wing cabal then took control of the Central American country. In the years since, murders of members of the LGBT community have soared, with 215 killed in just the last 6 years. Only a month ago, Sherlyn Montoya, a trans activist, was found dead, her body showing signs of strangulation. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton continues to speak as if she is a leader on LGBT rights.

Labour manifesto leak: Whether by accident or by design, the leak of the Labour manifesto was a PR master stroke. As ever, though, the Fourth International are, shall we say, less than effusive, dismissing the document as ‘a pro-business, pro-militarist election manifesto‘, a triumph for the Blairites.

Transracialism and transgenderism: A philosophy professor has been subjected to a witch-hunt after writing a paper evaluating the merits of the arguments for transracialism and transgenderism. The example of transracialism used was that of the notorious Rachel Dolezal, who remains unapologetic.
