Reza Aslan is not mincing words when he talks about “eradicating” Trump supporters.





on






CNN contributor and liberal intellectual Reza Aslan is calling for the “eradication” of Trump supporters. In a series of aggressive tweets directed toward the President and those who voted for him, Aslan remarked – in response to the mass shooting in El Paso – that President Donald Trump “is a white nationalist terror leader.”


Arguing that there was “no longer any room for nuance” – words that are remarkably similar to Dayton shooter Connor Betts’ calls for violence on Twitter – Reza openly called for the genocide of Trump supporters.


“The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters – ALL OF THEM – are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And his evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.”


In the same series of tweets, Aslan called Kellyanne Conway “”’the depraved evil’” we need to eradicate,” following her remarks that America needed to come together in the wake of the mass shooting. The CNN contributor took her call for the eradication of hate and turned it upon her with a call for the eradication of a group of people – Trump supporters – of which Conway is a part.



Armed with dehumanizing language, Aslan’s call for the “eradication” of the Left’s political opponents and his characterization of Trump supporters as an “evil, racist scourge” is rooted in the language of Holocaust proponents and other architects of 20 th -century genocide.

Aslan also slammed Ivanka Trump’s denouncement of white supremacist ideology, referring her and her entirely family as “white supremacist” despite the Jewish heritage of Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner and their extended family.


Armed with dehumanizing language, Aslan’s call for the “eradication” of the Left’s political opponents and his characterization of Trump supporters as an “evil, racist scourge” is rooted in the language of Holocaust proponents and other architects of 20 th -century genocide.


The term “eradicate,” when used in the context of groups of people, is a call for genocide. An early intelligence record on Hitler’s “Final Solution” was declassified in 2001 under the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act, which contains statements by Axis diplomats referring to a plan for the “eradication” of Jews in Europe.


“The Jewish problem is being partially solved in the Protectorate [Reich Protectorate of Bohemia-Moravia], as it has been decided to eradicate all the Jews and send some to Poland and others to the town of Terezin, whilst looking for a more remote place,” reads an official Nazi dispatch to the Chilean government.


In reference to genocide, identical language is used by historians , journalists , and human rights organizations .


According to a 2007 Clark University study on the deconstruction of hate speech , “Dehumanization is a frequent element of hate speech, and is used to vilify the target. It also has the effect of disinhibiting violence. Thus, dehumanizing descriptions of individuals and groups are an alarming signal of hate speech and the danger of future violence, and its early detection is crucial.”


Reza’s call for the “eradication” of Trump supporters isn’t limited to President Trump and his cabinet. He also made calls for violence against the Covington Catholic High School boys in January.


“Honest question. Have you seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?” Aslan asked . The tweet received over 23,000 “likes” from his supporters. Tweets like Aslan’s set off a firestorm of hatred against the high school boys, including threats directed towards the school and the boys’ lawyer , Robert Barnes.


The tweet remains online.


According to Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra , a Twitter official stated that Aslan’s call to “eradicate” Kellyanne Conway does not violate their policies.

Indeed.  The rage and anger on the left is seething out of control. Perhaps they think they can hunt us down a dozen at a time on the manor.  Here’s part of another example:

...Tommy Lee is the new voice of the American Left. The drummer for Mötley Crüe and convicted wife-beater laid out in florid terms his plans for what the Left will do in a few years to the 47% of America that voted for President Trump.

Lee’s essay, posted on Twitter Friday morning, began “You Trumpsters better pray that liberals never gain control of the WH again because we are going to pay you back so f---ing hard for all of this shit." Lee’s proposals, including taxing churches out of business and throwing condoms out of planes at noncoastal Americans, were creative, and his language was colorful. But the basic notion — that Trump supporters deserve to suffer — is mainstream these days.

Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro, the brother of presidential candidate Julián Castro, didn’t go to Tommy Lee’s lengths, but he had the same message: It’s not okay to be a Trump supporter, and you ought to be publicly shamed for the crime....https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/editorials/being-a-trump-supporter-is-no-longer-allowed-it-seems

Maybe you think it's meaningless but it is not. Both are exactly the same thing. Both are attempts to motivate a base, based on emotion and stereotype and not on truth, logic or rational attempt at finding the best way. You cannot excoriate one for doing something bad and give someone else a pass when they do the exact same thing and retain credibility. Your "cause" doesn't make it okay.

I agree. This irresponsible authors misrepresentation of Mr. Aslan's comments are truly reprehensible. I'm no fan of Aslan, but he obviously was NOT calling for the eradication of any people in that comment. 

“The President is a white nationalist terror leader." True.

"His supporters – ALL OF THEM – are by definition white nationalist terror supporters." Those who aren't calling out the Presidents blatant racist rhetoric and are self labeling as a "xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic" deplorable are supporting white nationalist terrorism.

"The MAGA hat is a KKK hood." Pretty much.

"And his evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.” Yes, white supremacy, the "racist scourge", should definitely be eradicated from society. Not sure how anyone would intentionally misrepresent that tweet and act as if he was calling for violence against anyone, that's just ridiculous.

“it is inevitable that some people will falsely accuse Donald Trump of being a racist. Additionally, since we live in a world where the liberal definition of “white supremacy” seems to be, “A white person who doesn’t vote Democrat,” the accusations of racism from the Left are just par for the course.

 So, how does a man who took a picture in 1986 with Muhammad Ali and Rosa Parks when he won an Ellis Island award that is supposed to, “embody the spirit of America in their celebration of patriotism, tolerance, brotherhood, and diversity,” clear his name? How does a man who has donated to (Al) Sharpton’s original organization , the National Youth Movement, cut the ribbon at the 2002 conventions of Sharpton’s current group, the National Action Network,  and gave rent-free space to Jessie Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH Coalition counter the irrational allegations that he’s a white supremacist?

Sure, more than a million black Americans voted for Trump in 2016, he makes frequent efforts to appeal to black Americans (you could ask A$AP Rocky about that) and he takes great pride in having done a better job of helping black Americans than Obama did , but how can he somehow prove that he doesn’t support people and groups he has never supported in the first place? One simple way to do that would seem to be to disavow them and publicly say he doesn’t support their cause. 

So, here are 17 times Donald Trump has condemned racism, hate, white supremacism, the Alt-Right, the KKK or David Duke.” https://www.bizpacreview.com/2019/08/11/17-times-donald-trump-has-condemned-racism-and-white-supremacy-784419

Aslan responded to what KellyAnne Conway said, using her own word "eradicate".   She said we need to eradicate hate, and he said "you are the hate". 
Obviously this is a use of language as metaphor, and not a call for Conway to be killed.

He is saying the scourge should be eradicated , not the lives of the people who hold the belief.  Kellyanne Conway said the evil of hate should be eradicated, was she talking about the people who hate or the ideas of hate? 

All Reza Aslan did was use her own word 'eradicate' to accuse her of hypocrisy.  He wasnt advocating genocide. This is not even a close call.

That's not what he wrote. You understand how to identify who or what should be eradicated, but you apparently believe a professional writer is incapable of  doing that.  If he meant what you claim he meant, he would have said beliefs should be eradicated, but he wrote that a woman should be eradicated.

His meaning is clear, despite your attempts to rewrite it.

...“Recent events in El Paso and Dayton and reactions by President Trump’s opponents and the mainstream media should make one thing clear — there is a gathering storm of anti-Trump paranoia as the 2020 presidential election draws nearer.

If conservatives weren’t prepared for Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) before 2016 then beware – “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

There is no better example of what lies ahead than how NBC News contributor Frank Figliuzzi reacted to President Trump’s announcement that all American flags should remain at half-mast until August 8 in memory of those who were murdered the Texas and Ohio cities.

Rather than recognize Trump did what he had been accused of not doing – calling for an end to hate crimes, denouncing white nationalism, etc., Figliuzzi suggested to viewers that this might be a secret way for the President to give a nod to Adolf Hitler and linked him to Nazi’s.

“The president said that we will fly our flags at half-mast until August 8, that’s 8/8” said Figliuzzi. “The numbers 8 and 8 are very significant in the neo-Nazi and the white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them, the numbers 8/8 stand for ‘Heil Hitler.”

More troubling is that MSNBC anchor Brian Williams offered no push back on a bizarre theory that an act to honor victims of recent tragic mass shootings was a hidden nod to Nazi’s or a show of support to white supremacists!

Some may say, “It can’t get worse than that, can it?”

In the words of the famous ad man, “But wait, there’s more.”

After Democratic presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke accused the President of being a white nationalist, former CNN host Reza Aslan tweeted, “After today there is no longer any room for nuance. The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters – ALL OF THEM – are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And this evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.”

Tweets are often posted with little thought, so perhaps Aslan would think better of calling for the eradication of those who support the President. However, you would be wrong.”...

It's called "propaganda" and all sides engage in it. It is aimed at those who can't be bothered to think for themselves. They take a kernel of truth and shape it into a thought they want you to think. An emotion they want you to feel. 

A pundit used to be defined as "an expert in a particular subject or field who is frequently called on to give opinions about it to the public." Now it should be defined as a propaganda tool used to massage public opinion. Not everything the Left says about Trump is untrue. Not everything the Right says about Trump is true. The problem is that people get so caught up in their "cause" that they will accept BS as long as it supports their cause or their emotions. 

Truth is hard. We don't want to be wrong. We need to recognize that there isn't anything more deceptive than the human heart. It often does not want to accept the truth over what it wants to be true.

I am opposed to all forms of violence too except the minimum possible in self defense.  That’s why I don’t have a gun because I’m not sure even in a crisis that I could pull the trigger on someone.  I love the central coast too particularly the Santa Cruz to Monterey portion.  It’s been a long time since I’ve been further south on the central coast.   Have you been to the far north?  We have a lot of beauty here and a 200 mile loop would see most of it. Start in Redding on I-5 and go north.  You would see Shasta Dam, Shasta Lake, Shasta caverns then take the freeway up the Sacramento River canyon to Castle Crags state park, a railroad museum, the beautiful city of Dunsmuir with its famous water and a nice river front park and two waterfalls.  Taking the southern most exit off the freeway to the northern most one back on is a nice drive.  Take the highway 89 exit at Mt. Shasta city and drive along the southern base of the mountain to access snow skiiing down hill and cross country, a sledding and tubing hill, and a snowmobile area in winter or climb around the  mountain in summer though only experts should try for the summit.  Then there’s the pretty historic town of Mc Cloud which is nice like Dunsmuir. The highway follows the Mc Cloud river and there are three waterfalls with ample camping and fishing opportunities.  Lower, middle, and Upper falls are all nice. Thirty miles of scenic driving will get to Lake Britton on the Pitt River and more camping opportunities.  Crossing the lake will bring to to see a railroad bridge that was used in the train scene in Stand By Me.  Two miles south is Burney Falls state park, an awesome falls President Roosevelt called the 8th wonder of the world.  The camping is great there and lake Britton has beach, picnic, boat launch and rentals.  Continue past hw 299 and Burney on 89 and more scenic drive until the lava tube which was formed from ancient volcanic activity.  After passing 44 East which goes to Susanville then Reno there’s Eskimo Hill a very good snow sliding hill at 6000’ elevation.  Next take the split of 44/89  into Lassen Volcanic National Park.  There are all kinds of mountains forests, waterfalls, lakes, volcanic wonders, hiking and camping swimming and fishing available as well as an opportunity to climb a mountain. In late summer with the snow gone the trail to climb mt. Lassen from the parking lot at 8200 ft to the top at 10,459 is about as easy as mountain climbing can be. 3 hours can get you to the top and back down with no equipment.  Leave the north entrance of the park and a 50 mile scenic drive through forests, lakes, vista points will get you back to Redding.

Many Californians have your experience.  Never been north of San Francisco Bay Area/Sacramento.  The part to the north of Santa Rosa/Napa, Solano, Yolo, Sacramento county lines to Oregon is 1/3 of California by size yet has only 2.5 million of the states 40 million population.  The two largest cities in this 1/3 of the state are Redding and Chico just over 90,000 pop each.

I'll have to plan a trip up there.  Maybe I should drive all the way to Seattle where I have relatives.

(Thank you for permission to go off-topic.)

I’ve made that Redding to Seattle and then Vancouver BC drive a few times.  It’s beautiful.  Redding to Seattle on I-5 is about the same distance as Redding to San Diego is the other direction on I-5.

One thing I have noticed is that, no matter how far apart two people are on some issues, they can always find something in common.  Our commonalities hold us together and our differences add spice.  Let's all learn to look for the commonalities and see the differences as something positive.

That would be a great thing no matter our differences in politics, science, religion or whatever matter.

I have never even heard of this person. I guess the trump supporters chanting "the jews will not replace us!!!" get a pass though.

Those people were not Trump supporters. They are national socialists. They hated Trumps ties to Israel and that he has Jews in his family.

Yea, they were HA. There were documentaries about it, the ring leader even said, on camera that the only thing he DIDN'T like about trump is that he isn't racist enough. 

They are national socialists.

No. They were fascists, which is all right wing, it's so right wing, it's literally the polar opposite of liberalism. Neo-nazi's, white nationalists and a few KKK thrown in. Those are all right wing groups. So save your BS, it doesn't wash with the facts. Hell, some of those jackasses were wearing maga hats.

Wow, that bottom one has three maga hats! 

And be sure you read the shirt in the 2nd picture.

These are right wingers, HA, fucking own it.

"Documentaries" are not proof of anything.. They are propaganda by agenda driven filmmakers.  It's scary how many people believe something because they saw it on a "documentary."

The second picture with the guy wearing a swatstika is a comedian making a video. Sad what people fell for.

Exactly.  Trump supporters and voters have nothing at all to do with these people and would never accept them in our midst.

Guess you missed the other two pictures? And the trump poster? And the back of the shirt? And the MAGA hats? 

Watch the documentary, then get back to me. It's in their own words, Sean.

I’m sure that the national socialists enjoyed that their allies would use these pictures to make us look bad by making the alleged associations.  These 10-20,000 clowns scattered across the country are never accepted by the GOP base, the Tea Party, or Trump voters no matter what they say or wear for the cameras or in private.
