Several white nationalist pundits are praising Donald Trump's plan “calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.” They've called Trump's proposal “so wonderful” and “100% reasonable” because Muslims purportedly provide “absolutely nothing of value to this once-great nation.” They've also praised the Republican frontrunner as “indispensible” and the “ultimate savior.”
Trump Calls For A “Complete Shutdown Of Muslims Entering The United States”
“Trump Is Calling For A Total And Complete Shutdown Of Muslims Entering The United States.” In a December 7 press release, Trump announced he is calling for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States”:
Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing “25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad” and 51% of those polled, “agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah.” Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won't convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.
Mr. Trump stated, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.” [DonaldJTrump.com, 12/7/15]
White Nationalist Media Previously Hailed And Endorsed Trump. White nationalist media figures have been backing Trump's presidential campaign and celebrating his stance on immigration. They have hailed Trump as “doing the Lord's work,” someone who “represents our interests,” “the best of the lot,” and the “last hope for a president who would be good for white people.” [Media Matters, 8/27/15]
White Nationalists: “Heil Donald Trump -- The Ultimate Savior,” “Great,” “It's So Wonderful”
Daily Stormer: “Why Were These Monkeys Ever Allowed In In The First Place? ... Finally: Someone Speaks Sense.” The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) notes that the Daily Stormer is “named for prominent Nazi Julius Streicher's virulently anti-Semitic weekly newspaper The Stormer” and is run by neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin. Anglin praised Trump in a December 7 post:
Why were these monkeys ever allowed in in the first place? What an insane, stupid concept.
Finally: Someone speaks sense.
Islam - 0/5 would not allow.
Get all of these monkeys the hell out of our country - now!
Heil Donald Trump - THE ULTIMATE SAVIOR.
Anglin wrote in a December 8 post that Trump's plan is “100% reasonable” because Muslims provide “absolutely nothing of value to this once-great nation”:
This is, of course, 100% reasonable. Besides the fact that these Allah-apes want to kill us, they are also completely pointless on every conceivable level, providing absolutely nothing of value to this once-great nation.
Barack Obama's position is that it is “our values” to allow dirty, low IQ people from anywhere into our country, regardless of the fact they may murder us on the streets. [Southern Poverty Law Center, 3/10/15; Daily Stormer, 12/7/15, 12/8/15; Gawker.com, 12/8/15]
VDARE: “Donald Trump Agrees With VDARE.com: Halt Muslim Immigration!” The SPLC describes VDARE.com as “an anti-immigration hate website” with a white nationalist ideology that “regularly publishes articles by prominent white nationalists, race scientists and anti-Semites.” VDARE writer Patrick Cleburne noted Trump's plan under the headline, “Donald Trump Agrees With VDARE.com: Halt Muslim Immigration!” and added: “Once again -- Donald Trump is indispensible.” The website also is fundraising off of Trump's proposal, writing in a December 8 fundraising pitch:
Even as this is written, Donald Trump has come out for a moratorium on Muslim immigration, just days after our Editor-in-Chief Peter Brimelow advocated precisely the same thing. They may not admit it, but more people than ever are reading VDARE.com. And finally, people are beginning to act. [Southern Poverty Law Center, accessed 12/8/15; VDARE.com, 12/7/15; 12/8/15]
Anti-Semitic Writer: Trump's Plan Is “Great.” Hunter Wallace, whose real name is reportedly Brad Griffin, is an anti-Semitic writer who is also a board member for the white supremacist hate group the Council of Conservative Citizens. Wallace wrote on the Council of Conservative Citizens' website and his website The Occidental Dissent that Trump's plan is “great”:
In addition to the Trump database, this should help Trump peel off a lot of the Carson/Cruz vote while sending the Left into a new fit of PC rage that will generate free publicity through Iowa:
We need to stop the damage the US government is already doing to places like Minneapolis-St. Paul and Middle Tennessee with the refugee reettlement [sic] program. It was revealed today that ISIS is targeting the refugee program to funnel terrorists into the US.
He also wrote a post headlined, “Organized Jewry Denounces Trump Over Banning Muslims.” He commented: “This doesn't come as a surprise.” [SPLC.org, 8/20/15, accessed 12/8/15; Anti-Defamation League, 12/6/13; Council of Conservative Citizens, 12/7/15; The Occidental Dissent, 12/7/15, 12/8/15]
White Nationalist Video Blogger Ramzpaul: Trump Plan Is “Glorious. Hail Trump.” The SPLC has called video blogger Paul Ray Ramsey (aka Ramzpaul) a white nationalist who “has emerged as the hottest right-wing video blogger this side of former Klansman David Duke.” In a YouTube video, Ramsey praised Trump's plan by saying “I'm like a teenager with a crush ... it's just so wonderful.” He added that Obama is making the country a “diversity fuck-up and we don't want that.” He praised Trump's plan as “glorious. Hail Trump.” [Southern Poverty Law Center, 8/21/13, YouTube.com, 12/7/15]
David Duke: Trump Wants To “Preserve The Heritage Of The Country,” “Jewish Knives Are Coming Out.” The SPLC has called Duke “the most recognizable figure of the American radical right, a neo-Nazi, longtime Klan leader and now international spokesman for Holocaust denial.” On his radio program, Duke complained that the “Jewish knives are coming out now on Donald Trump and they are orchestrating a tremendous reaction to his comments.” The anti-Semite went on to say that Trump is just saying he wants “to preserve the heritage of the country.” [Southern Poverty Law Center, accessed 12/8/15; Rense Radio Network, David Duke Show, 12/8/15; BuzzFeed, 12/8/15]
Anti-Semitic Writer Kevin MacDonald: “This May Be The Last Chance For Whites To Elect A President Who Represents Their Interests.” The SPLC states that Kevin MacDonald “is the neo-Nazi movement's favorite academic” who has “published a trilogy that supposedly 'proves' that Jews are genetically driven to destroy Western societies.” In a piece for the Occidental Observer, MacDonald wrote that “Trump is ahead of the curve and taking all the oxygen out of the room for the other Republican candidates” and concluded (emphasis added):
Make no mistake about it, if Trump is nominated, there will be an unprecedented bombardment of propaganda against him that will make the 1964 anti-Goldwater campaign look tame by comparison. But, given the steadily falling White percentage of the electorate (definitely a design feature of the current policy), this may be the last chance for Whites to elect a president who represents their interests. I suspect that quite a bit of the Republican Jewish Coalition money will actively support Hillary, and others will sit on their hands. Not only are Trump's declarations on immigration and refugees anathema to them, he has not towed the neocon lines on Syria, the Iraq war, or Putin. His speech at the recent RJC forum (where he also deviated from Israel Lobby positions on Israel's supposed commitment to peace with the Palestinians and placing Israel's capital in Jerusalem) was basically a statement to the effect that “I don't need your money; I am way ahead in the polls, so get used to it.” To put it mildly, the RJC is not used to such chutzpah. The unprincipled Marco Rubio, who will do anything for their money, is much more acceptable.
Neo-Nazi Vanguard News Network: “Trump Is Beginning To Sound Like A White Nationalist.” The SPLC describes the Vanguard News Network (slogan: “No Jews. Just Right.”) as a “gutturally racist website” that has “proven relatively popular in neo-Nazi circles” and is run by neo-Nazi Alex Linder. A post on the website stated of Trump's plan:
Actually, at least some of the conservative presidential candidates are saying to themselves, “Gee, I wish I could say that about Muslim immigration, too, but if I did, my big Jewish mega-donors would cut off the money supply!” Anyway, Trump is beginning to sound like a White nationalist, even more so than before, so watch the “Western” media and the neocons launch a giant, no-holds-barred campaign to discredit him.
