In recent weeks, Donald Trump Jr. has made a “gas chamber” reference, retweeted an anti-Semitic author, and compared Syrian refugees to Skittles. Trump Jr.’s actions have endeared him to neo-Nazi websites, which have celebrated the Republican nominee’s son for having “hit a nerve” with the “Jew Media” and for indicating that “a part of him has been with us since day one.”
Members of the “alt-right” and white nationalist movement have been heavily supporting Trump’s campaign. Meanwhile, the candidate and his team have been courting members of the movement, appearing in white nationalist media, refusing to denounce them, and retweeting their messages.
The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake wrote that a “lot of Donald Trump Jr.’s trail missteps seem to involve white nationalists and Nazis.” The Daily Beast’s Betsy Woodruff noted that Trump Jr. is “Trump’s worst surrogate,” citing his “penchant for interacting with the alt-right.”
During this presidential campaign, Trump Jr.:
- posted an image celebrating “Pepe the Frog, a symbol that has been co-opted by white supremacists and nationalists.”
- said during a radio interview that the media would be “warming up the gas chamber” if Trump lied like Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has.
- retweeted anti-Semitic writer Kevin MacDonald, whom the Southern Poverty Law Center calls “the neo-Nazi movement's favorite academic.”
- gave an interview to white nationalist radio host James Edwards, during which Edwards and Trump Jr. complained about “political correctness.”
Trump Jr.’s latest gift to white nationalists is his tweet comparing Syrian refugees to Skittles. Talking Points Memo’s Allegra Kirkland noted that “Trump Jr. borrowed an analogy popular among anti-immigrant activists and white nationalists for his meme likening Syrian refugees to poisoned Skittles.” The Intercept and The Independent pointed out that the symbolism in Trump Jr.’s tweet is a dog whistle that dates back to the Nazis.
The Trump campaign defended Trump Jr.’s tweet, claiming that “Speaking the truth might upset those who would rather be politically correct than safe.”
Neo-Nazis have been thrilled with Trump Jr.’s actions in the past several weeks.
The Daily Stormer is a virulently anti-Semitic website that celebrates Nazism, purports to document the “Jewish Problem,” and attacks “kikes.” Writer “Azzmador” wrote a September 20 post headlined “Jew Media Deplores Trump Jr.’s Holocaust of Skittles.” The writer claimed: “When the Jews put a pack of apes in suits to call you ‘ignorant,’ you know you’ve hit a nerve!” and added:
Certain people just can’t handle the truth. They are known as “stupid people.”
The Jews depend on their media’s ability to cultivate good goy opinions among these ignoramuses. Without them and their votes, democracy isn’t nearly so deadly a weapon as they like.
Perfectly reasonable, if you asked me, and personally, I think 3 Skittles in the bowl is an outrageously charitable underestimate. So, in the midst of all these stabbings and explosions happening courtesy of your freshly-minted American Kebabs, what is the most riveting story (according to the MSM) concerning the current presidential race?
The Daily Stormer also celebrated other Trump Jr. incidents. “Zeigel” wrote a September 15 post headlined “YES: Donald Trump Jr. Makes Casual Joke About Gas Chambers!” “Zeigel” wrote that Trump Jr.’s reference to the gas chamber is “the sort of metaphor that someone on the Alt-Right would use instinctively. … It’s language that immediately sends signals to both Nazis and Jews. But normal people wouldn’t even understand what he’s talking about.” The writer further added:
So this remark is either a very calculated stunt to get media Jews riled up about nothing, or an innocent comment by someone who’s hiding his power level.
And considering the other events involving Trump Jr. during this campaign, I would tend to favor the latter hypothesis.
If Trump’s own son is a Nazi, what are the odds that he himself isn’t red-pilled?
The Daily Stormer also praised Trump Jr.’s retweeting of Kevin MacDonald, writing, “There is no way Donald Trump Jr. didn’t know” MacDonald is an anti-Semite:
MacDonald is definitely an anti-Semite. And everyone knows this. He wrote three huge books about how Jews are screwing over the goyim, for God’s sake.
There is no way Donald Trump Jr. didn’t know about this when he retweeted him. I mean, a quick look at Dr. MacDonald’s twitter feed will dispel any doubts that he’s basically a Nazi.
Just the fact that Trump Jr. retweeted him should bring a lot of attention to Kevin MacDonald’s work. It’s quite surprising, in fact, that the mainstream media isn’t exploding at this event.
Infostormer -- a neo-Nazi website with the slogan “destroying Jewish tyranny” -- wrote a September 15 post with the headline “LOL: Donald Trump Jr. Attacked By Jews For Making Gas Chamber Joke On Radio Show.” The website regularly posts anti-Semitic material and slurs like “kike” and its background image is a picture of a Nazi rally. The post about Trump Jr. by “Marcus Cicero” stated:
The transformation of our society into one dominated by the Shitlord continues to progress rather smoothly, and I’m rather pleased to announce that the eldest son of our next President is now officially aboard the LULZ EXPRESS.
Actually, I feel that a part of him has been with us since day one, and we’ve only seen bits and pieces of the true Kek-Master rise forth from the ether.
The website also posted an August 31 article celebrating Trump Jr.’s retweet of MacDonald, writing:
OK so MacDonald is more than just a Jew critic, he absolutely hates them lol.
I doubt that this was done intentionally, but who knows. I’m just surprised that more hasn’t been made out of this yet. You’d figure the Jew media would be running around with their heads cut off trying to psychoanalyze every aspect of this.
