Trump endorsed Curt Schilling’s possible run for Congress. He’s a conspiracy theorist who uses social media to peddle bigotry and hatred. | Media Matters for America

President Donald Trump recently endorsed a possible congressional run from former MLB pitcher and Breitbart podcast host Curt Schilling. Schilling has a long history of spewing anti-Muslim, racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic commentary, and he was fired by ESPN for posting anti-trans bigotry on Facebook. He has also promoted multiple conspiracy theories, including QAnon and claims that the Sandy Hook mass shooting was a hoax, and once praised a shirt endorsing violence against journalists.

““This administration has directed DHS to conduct these raids as part of what I believe is this administration’s campaign of terror, which is to make whole populations of people afraid to go to work,” Harris said. “Children are afraid to go to school for fear that when they come home, their parents won’t be there.””

Opinion | Terror and Policy: 2 Sides of White Nationalism – The New York Times

These terrorists want to do quickly what the policymakers insist must be done slowly, so the terrorists stew in their anger. They are angry at immigrants because their numbers are ascendant — through both immigration and higher birthrates — and, those immigrants threaten an even more accelerated displacement of white people from a numerical majority. They are angry at white liberals for courting the demise of white supremacy. They are angry at white liberal white women in particular for championing a woman’s right to choose and for not having more babies. They are angry at black people for even existing. It is not lost on me that this summer is the 100th anniversary of the “Red Summer,” when violent anti-black white supremacists rioted in cities across the country, killing many, just as the Great Migration — the mass migration of millions of black people mostly from the rural South to the urban North — was getting underway.

Germany’s domestic intelligence agency says a conspiracy of neo-Nazis compiled a list of political opponents and ordered 200 body bags and quicklime in preparation for a potential collapse of state order, named “Day X.” Most of the more than 30 preppers, who called themselves Nordkreuz (Northern Cross), were associated with Germany’s police and military, including several former and one active member of the elite forces unit of the state police of Mecklenburg Western-Pomerania.

The BfV also believes that the group, which communicated via the messenger app Telegram, was preparing for Day X with “enormous intensity,” and had used data from police computers to compile a list of 25,000 names and addresses.

These mostly belonged to local politicians from Germany’s main political parties, the Christian Democrats, Social Democrats, Greens, and the Left party. All of of the politicians were considered supporters of “pro-refugee” policies.
