Oh, but you will like this is printed on Breitbart I'm going to have to wash out my tablet for using this source.
āIām fairly confident that Mr. Trump will be defeated in the election. The next morning, a lot of Republicans will say, āTrump? I donāt recognize the name.ā Theyāll get over this fairly fast. Our parties are very durable. Our two parties have formulated the political competition in this country since the Republicans first ran a presidential ticket in 1856.ā ---George F. Will
Robert Farley wrote: In an ABC News/Washington Post poll taken just after the Charlottesville rally in August 2017, 9 percent of the respondents said they thought it was strongly or somewhat acceptable to hold neoāNazi or white supremacist views. As ABC News reported at the time, thatās equivalent to about 22 million Americans.
Rise in Propaganda/Rallies
The Anti-Defamation League, meanwhile, reports that white supremacy groups have stepped up their propaganda efforts. āADLās Center on Extremism (COE) continues to track an ever-growing number of white supremacist propaganda efforts, including the distribution of racist, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic fliers, stickers, banners and posters,ā according to a recent ADL report. āThe 2018 data shows a 182% increase of incidents from the previous year, with 1,187 cases reported, compared to 421 in 2017.ā The group said that level of activity far exceeded any of its previous distribution counts.

Matthew Teague wrote: The staunchest of evangelicals, 90-year-old televangelist Pat Robertson, split from Trump on Tuesday.
He told his television viewers of the president: āHe said, āIām ready to send in military troops if the nationās governors donāt act to quell the violence that has rocked American cities.ā A matter of fact, he spoke of them as being jerks. You just donāt do that, Mr President. It isnāt cool!ā

Neil wrote: So New American also supports this Lost Cause nonsense, referencing a League of the South author. Another reason to avoid John Birchers. I'd keep the Lee statues but add a sign saying, "This nice man, owing to a misguided sense of loyalty, rebelled against his duly-elected Commander-in-Chief," like Democrats since 2016. But hey, it's their State, not mine.
Neil, This racist was not a nice man.
Now, they may want to replace all the Lee statues with a statue of General James Longstreet,š

Chris GC, you have a point. There has never been a call to mix religion and politics. https://tinyurl.com/y576t94tĀ (Should Christians try to force the kingdom on others?) Perhaps the Southern Baptist churches outside of the South are learning this.
So, for more reasons the Southern Baptists leaving?
The following article has some reasons perhaps given more emphasis than they deserved, but still interesting for example:
Jonathan Merritt wrote: .... Few issues are more relevant now than racial division. The Southern Baptist Convention, which was founded over the issue of slavery and was mostly supportive of segregation and Jim Crow laws, is still 85 percent white. It issued an apology for its racist past in 1995, but the group struggled to pass resolutions condemning white supremacy and the Confederate flag. As Greear wrote, āIn theory, very few people in the American church are opposed to the idea of racial and cultural diversity. But experience would suggest that on this issue good intentions do not equal forward progress.ā...
Adam Serwer wrote: .... But even if one conceded Leeās military prowess, he would still be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans in defense of the Southās authority to own millions of human beings as property because they are black. Leeās elevation is a key part of a 150-year-old propaganda campaign designed to erase slavery as the cause of the war and whitewash the Confederate cause as a noble one. That ideology is known as the Lost Cause, and as the historian David Blight writes, it provided a āfoundation on which Southerners built the Jim Crow system.ā...
"Nice thought. In both of her two elections she pulled 90% of the Democrat vote, plus the liberal Republicans. Remember Joe Miller? He beat her in the primary one year and ran as a libertarian the other year. The democrat candidates pulled almost none of the votes in either election. The dems voted for Lisa en mass. That is her constituency and she will probably get that vote again."

The comments to the article or perhaps more telling than the article itself about Senator Murkowski.
Like Senator Mitt Romney, Trump's actions will not have much of an effect on her re-election.

Samantha Michaels wrote: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez urged her supporters to take a broad view of the demonstrations, and spoke critically about those who are calling for a stop to the unrest, which has included the looting and burning of buildings.
āIf you are calling for an end to this unrest, and if you are a calling for an end to all of this, but you are not calling for the end of the conditions that created the unrest, you are a hypocrite,ā she said in a video on Instagram Saturday morning, posted above. āSo if youāre out here calling for the end of unrest, then you better be calling for health care as a human right, you better be calling for accountability in our policing, you better be supporting community review boards, you better be supporting the end of housing discriminationā¦Because if you donāt call for those things and youāre asking for the end of unrest, all youāre asking for is the continuation of quiet oppression.ā

I have to say after looking at Rick Steves' video I have a hard time seeing that German youth would think that and also not know about Hitler. It is supposedly part of the German education that Hitler's Third Reich was well covered in the school system?
By the way, the following show only covers the European fascist movement. It says nothing even of Juan Peron or anybody else in the Western Hemisphere. But then it is only an hour long. I would think would make a good informational show for homeschoolersāš

He traces fascismās history from its roots in the turbulent aftermath of World War I, when masses of angry people rose up, to the rise of charismatic leaders who manipulated that anger, and the totalitarian societies they built.
