The international T-Party

quote [ How racism and immigration gave us Trump, Brexit, and a whole new kind of politics ]

This is a new kind of right wing that most Americans are not familiar with.


But to me, the more important thing is a shift in strategies that I think a lot of people in this Trump administration, Steve Bannon, and others want to do, which is all through all our lifetimes, Republicans, Democrats have basically supported the post World War II international order and seen Russia, or the Soviet Union, as a threat to that.

Bannon and others in the international tea party movement do not support that order. They see Russia as a potential ally of nationalist populists against Islam. And that would be a fundamental shift in American foreign policy if we're more pro Russia than we are pro NATO. And to me, one of the interesting things in this whole administration will be Bannon versus Trump. That is to say a guy with the ideology versus a guy with no attention span who sees a lot of shiny objects.

Meet the Press - January 8, 2017

The White Nationalist strain is not conservative as a matter of fact is about as far away from Reagan Conservatism as possible. The really ironic thing is that it is an international movement each group claiming nationalism in their own counties.


What unites far-right politicians and their supporters, on both sides of the Atlantic, is a set of regressive attitudes toward difference. Racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia โ€” and not economic anxiety โ€” are their calling cards.

All of this seem way over Trumps head...and Anti to the John McCains of this world. Russia as an allie in the next Crusade a realignment of the post WWII world like we have never seen. And now a champion in the Whitehouse.

If it werenโ€™t for Zack Beauchamp and Vox, many of us would never have even heard about the bridge connecting the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Except your link has a hard time keeping its facts straight....

As you can see on the above map, Gaza is separate from the other major Palestinian population center โ€” the big green blob to the east of Israel, the West Bank. So despite both territories being largely populated by Palestinians, they're basically separate geographic entities.

Before Israel occupied Gaza, it was controlled for some years by Egypt, which borders Gaza on the west. Israel took it from Egypt during the 1967 war between the two countries, and until 2005 it occupied the Gaza Strip in the same way that it has occupied the West Bank through today.

Is what the site said....not a bridge.

Another case of the far left and the far right agreeing...beginning to like Vox more and more.

See not only did he not say it he don't even believe it.

I myself just read it on that bullshit site you linked to...it says that nowhere else.

I think the US Democrat party would rate as a Right Wing hate-group, by European standards.

What does that make the Republicans? They think we are Bolsheviks.
