Look at this genitalia-challenged posturing from the First Son, the one Republicans see as a possible candidate in 2024. We know Don Jr. is actually a wimp. I mean, you didn't think he was going to   enlist , did you?

After all, he comes from a long line of The Exalted Order Of Bone Spurs. That's why he only shoots creatures that can't shoot back.

And that's why he goes on social media to show off his new weapon, the one with the Jerusalem Cross of the Crusaders used by white supremacists, also with an ammo clip painting of Hillary Clinton behind bars. (Or, as one person put it, a painting of HRC visiting Don Jr. in jail.)

Not a surprise on your part. 

The crusader imagery on the gun is a dog whistle to Trump's white nationalist supporters.

Whitaker recently discussed white supremacists’ use of medieval icons at a symposium called “The Crusades, the Middle Ages, and the Alt Right.” The symposium was organized by Matthew Gabriele, a professor of medieval and early modern studies at Virginia Tech, who says historians need to address hate groups’ use of medieval iconography. Often, this imagery comes from   the Crusades .

He saw it in footage of the Charlottesville rally, he says: “The imagery that these white nationalist, white supremacist groups were using was really in a lot of cases very noticeably medieval.” Some of them carried “crusader shields with a red cross on it that said ‘deus vult’”—a Latin rallying cry meaning “God wills,” used by some Christian knights in the first Crusade. The red crosses evoke those worn by the   Knights Templar , a Roman Catholic order that has   long been fodder for myth , legend and conspiracy theories.

Hate groups’ attempts to link modern Islamophobia to the Crusades plays off of “a much older, 19th-century style of scholarship which portrayed the Crusades in a very specific way,” Gabriele says. This older scholarship framed the Crusades as a “Christian defensive war against an aggressive, expansionistic Islam.” Hate groups use this narrative of the Crusades to say, as Gabriele puts it, “‘Look what happened then; it’s happening again now.’”

So anything in history that has anything to do with white people defending their countries, cultures and religion is now related to white supremacy? I supposed anybody who enjoys the movie 300 is probably a racist too. Check out this parody. Just seems fitting to put here

I dont have a problem with Crusaders. Their era was very much based on religious fervor and obedience to religious authority. The men of the day had a duty to join the Crusades. 

Today, crusader imagery is seen , in some instances, as a support for white nationalism, white supremacy and Islamophobia . 

Why would Trump Jr put a Crusader cross and the design of a crusader helmet on his gun? 

I kind of doubt that he personally gives a shit, but he does know that doing so will be a signal to his fathers followers who are "crusader" white nationalists and Islamophobes.

You apparently don't realize that in the end, the Muslims won and kicked out the European invaders.

And why DON'T you have a problem with all the women, children, Jews, and other non-Christians slaughtered by the Crusaders?

I do have a problem with that. That doesn't mean I have to be ignorant about the Crusades, though. The Crusades did not "keep me from growing up in a Muslim society." It was another example of Christian atrocities, a reminder of why we must never let religion take hold of our government.

“The understanding of medieval Europe as a homogeneously white space is completely erroneous, as scholar after scholar has shown time and time again,” says Cord J. Whitaker, a medieval literature professor at Wellesley College who is writing a book called Black Metaphors: Race, Rhetoric, Religion, and the Literature of the Late Middle Ages"

"Whitaker recently discussed white supremacists’ use of medieval icons at a symposium called “The Crusades, the Middle Ages, and the Alt Right.” The symposium was organized by Matthew Gabriele, a professor of medieval and early modern studies at Virginia Tech, who says historians need to address hate groups’ use of medieval iconography.

"White supremacists explicitly celebrate Europe in the Middle Ages because they imagine that it was a pure, white, Christian place organized wholesomely around military resistance to outside, non-white, non-Christian, forces. Marchers in Charlottesville held symbols of the medieval Holy Roman Empire and of the Knights Templar . The Portland murderer praised "Vinland," a medieval Viking name for North America , in order to assert historical white ownership over the landmass: Vinlander racists like to claim that whites are "indigenous" here on the basis of medieval Scandinavian lore. Similarly, European anti-Islamic bigots dress up in medieval costumes and share the " crying Templar " meme. Someone sprayed "saracen go home" and "deus vult"—a Latin phrase meaning "God wills it" and associated with the history of the Crusades—on a Scottish mosque . The paramilitary "Knights Templar International" is preparing for a  race war ."

It's rather hilarious that these worthless little fuck wads of white supremacy and white nationalism try and appropriate the Knights Templar and the Crusades but they know virtually nothing about the real history, they focus on what they want to hear just like the sniveling bigots who came before them wearing "Gott Mit Uns" on their belts as they stuffed helpless minorities into the ovens of Auschwitz. Don Jr. is just another worthless white supremacist piece of shit trying to fake a spine by showing images of weapons as if he wouldn't be claiming bone spurs just like his weakling father did when actually required to fight.
