“Trump Is Right”: Trump’s White Nationalist Backers Applaud His Racist Attacks On Federal Judge

››› ››› ERIC HANANOKI

Donald Trump’s white nationalist media supporters are praising his racist attacks on a federal judge for purportedly being biased because “he’s a Mexican.” White nationalist media have called the judge a “terrorist spic,” claimed “Diversity is not strength, and it above all is not an impartial judiciary,” said the attacks against Trump are because of “Jewish manipulation,” and celebrated that Trump “is waking up” white Americans “from their collective hypnosis.” 

Trump Has Repeatedly Used Racist Attacks Against Trump U. Judge

Trump Has Repeatedly Insisted Judge Gonzalo Curiel Is Biased Against Him Because He’s “Mexican.” The Huffington Post wrote of Trump’s attacks against Judge Curiel:

On Friday, Donald Trump continued to insist that Gonzalo Curiel, a federal judge, is “Mexican” and biased against him because of his plan to build a wall with Mexico. Curiel was born in Indiana to parents who emigrated from Mexico.

Curiel is in Trump’s crosshairs because he is handling two lawsuits against Trump University, the for-profit school that former employees have called a “fraudulent scheme“ that “preyed upon the elderly and uneducated to separate them from their money.” Last week, the judge ordered the release of embarrassing internal documents, which set off Trump’s anger. Trump called him a “hater” and said he believed the judge was “Mexican.”

Despite the criticism he received, Trump doubled-down on those accusations during an interview with CNN Friday.

“He’s a Mexican,” Trump said of Curiel. “We’re building a wall between here and Mexico. The answer is, he is giving us very unfair rulings — rulings that people can’t even believe.” [The Huffington Post, 6/3/16]

Trump Has Reportedly Ordered “Surrogates To Intensify Criticism Of Judge.” Bloomberg reported that during a June 6 conference call with campaign surrogates, Trump “rallied his most visible supporters to defend his attacks on a federal judge's Mexican ancestry during a conference call on Monday in which he ordered them to question the judge's credibility and impugn reporters as racists.” [Bloomberg, 6/6/16]

White Nationalists React: “Trump Is Right,” “Diversity Is Not Strength,” “Terrorist Spic Judge”

White Nationalists Have Endorsed Trump And His Policies. White nationalist groups and leaders have celebrated Trump’s presidential campaign and used his candidacy to recruit followers, fundraise, and spread their message. The Trump campaign has had a series of troubling interactions with the white nationalist movement, including giving a white nationalist radio host press credentials, failing to condemn their actions, and retweeting them.

Neo-Nazi Website Daily Stormer: Judge Curiel Is A “Terrorist Spic Judge.” The Daily Stormer is a neo-Nazi website that has endorsed Trump for president and organizes anti-Semitic online attacks. Publisher Andrew Anglin attacked Judge Curiel, writing of Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan’s criticism of Trump over his comments: “Less than 24 hours after the forced-endorsement however, the ISIS-backer Ryan attacked The Leader, coming to the defense of a terrorist spic judge.” [Media Matters, 12/8/15; Daily Stormer, 6/3/16]

Daily Stormer Writer: “Trump Is Waking Up The People From Their Collective Hypnosis.” Daily Stormer writer “Zeiger” praised Trump for his attacks on the judge, writing that Trump is waking up white Americans. The writer then suggested an Auschwitz-type event would happen when people “wak[e] up”:

Everyone knows, instinctively, that moslems will stick with other moslems, defending them and conspiring with them against the rest of the population. The same is true for Hispanics. And obviously, the same is true for Jews.

But whites have been conditioned to ignore this basic reality and pretend as if we’re living in a happy fantasy land where everyone is race-blind. Trump is waking up the people from their collective hypnosis.

Soon, everyone will know the king is naked. [Daily Stormer, 6/5/16]

White Nationalist Writer Wallace: “Trump Refuses To Bow To Political Correctness.” 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 Council of Conservative Citizens. He praised Trump for refusing to “Bow To Political Correctness” and claimed liberals are hypocrites for attacking Trump:

A housebroken cuck expects you to know that “we are all individuals,” but at the same time we are not. If you go off that script, it makes you a racist. Meanwhile, the Left attacks Trump as a “racist” for his comments on the Mexican federal judge, but simultaneously demands that women and “people of color” be appointed to the courts precisely because their background gives them a different perspective than cisgendered White males. Trump’s list of Supreme Court picks was attacked because of its lack of “diversity.” [Media Matters, 12/8/15; Occidental Dissent, 6/5/16]

Wallace: “American Judges ARE Racially Biased Against Whites.”

VDARE’s Brimelow: “Diversity Is Not Strength, And It Above All Is Not An Impartial Judiciary.” Peter Brimelow is the editor for VDARE.com, which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) describes as "an anti-immigration hate website" with a white nationalist ideology. Brimelow wrote a post headlined, “Of Course Trump Is Right About Minority Judges,” and concluded:

VDARE.com has long argued that, given the U.S. now has legislating judges, they should be compelled to face elections i.e. impeachment. If you follow that link, you will see that a high proportion of the legislating judges we have exposed have been various sorts of minorities. (There is the occasional honorable exception).

Diversity is not strength, and it above all is not an impartial judiciary. That requires a degree of cultural consensus that post-1965 immigration policy has destroyed. [Media Matters, 12/8/15; VDARE, 6/5/16]

David Duke Claims Criticism Of Trump Illustrates How Jewish People "Are The Dominant And Dangerous Power That Exists" In America. 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 defended Trump’s attacks by claiming Judge Curiel “has had absolutely partisan activities. He has been an activist” and given “money to illegal immigrants.” He then claimed that media criticism of Trump is Jewish-influenced and Jewish people are like a “pack of wild dogs” against Trump. Duke concluded that the criticism of Trump shows “dangerous” “Jewish manipulation” in the country:

DAVID DUKE: I think this whole Trump University case really if we exploit it, can really expose the entire Jewish manipulation of the American media, the American political process, the American control of politics in America, and truly how that they are the dominant and dangerous power that exists in the United States of America today. [Media Matters12/8/15; Rense Radio Network, David Duke Show, 6/7/16]

Anti-Semitic Writer MacDonald: Trump Attacks “Entirely Reasonable.” Kevin MacDonald is the editor of the online publication The Occidental Observer. The SPLC describes him as "the neo-Nazi movement's favorite academic" who has "published a trilogy that supposedly 'proves' that Jews are genetically driven to destroy Western societies." MacDonald responded to Trump’s attacks by tweeting: “Claiming Curiel's motives come fromethnic [sic] identification is horribly un-pc (neocons hate it) but entirely reasonable.”
