William Cummings // Candace Owens fumes after Ted Lieu plays clip of her remarks on Hitler – To explain why, the California Democrat pulled out his smartphone and played a clip of Owens making some controversial comments about Adolf Hitler.

“In congressional hearings, the minority party gets to select its own witnesses. And of all the people Republicans could have selected, they picked Candace Owens,” Lieu said during the Tuesday hearing.

“I don’t know Ms. Owens. I’m not going to characterize her. I’m going to let her own words do the talking,” he said.

In the clip, Owens, the communications director for Turning Point USA, explains that she thinks the word “nationalism” has been “poisoned” by “elitists that actually want globalism” and who conflate the word with Hitler’s Nazi agenda.

A Toxic Breakup, A Sinking State & A Dirty Energy Project Even The Nazis Didn’t Want | PopularResistance.Org – Breaking up from the abusive relationship with oil and gas is no easy task – but several communities in Louisiana have started divorce proceedings.

Olivia Messer, Julia Arciga, Kelly Weill, Adam Rawnsley // Holden Matthews Arrested in String of Louisiana Church Fires – Louisiana Gov. Bel Edwards on Thursday described the three fires that destroyed predominantly black churches in rural Louisiana as an “evil act” committed by the son of a sheriff’s deputy.

Holden Matthews was arrested Wednesday on three counts of simple arson for fires that on destroyed the churches in St. Landry Parish over ten days. The fires were set on March 26, April 2, and April 4, and destroyed St. Mary Baptist Church, Greater Union Baptist Church, and Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, respectively. Matthews, 21, was booked into jail Wednesday evening.

Louisiana State Fire Marshal “Butch” Browning, at a Thursday morning press conference, called the fires “an attack on our God and our religion.”

“In my career, I have never seen such a spiritual mission that has come home so quickly,” said Browning, who noted that Matthews’ arrest was quick in part because “we felt that other crimes were imminent.”

Sean Wilentz // Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald, Julian Assange: What They Believe | The New Republic – What’s astonishing about their ascent to heroism is the breadth of their support. The embrace of the antiwar left and the libertarian right was to be expected. But effusions of praise for the leakers can also be found throughout the liberal establishment. The New York Times, which has come to rely on the leakers as prize sources, is now crusading on Snowden’s behalf. Its editorial page has celebrated him for having “done his country a great service” and supports clemency for the crimes he has committed. A stellar array of liberal intellectuals and pundits, from David Bromwich and Robert Kuttner to Richard Cohen and Ezra Klein, have hailed Snowden, as have elected officials, including Senators Bernie Sanders and Ron Wyden. To criticize the leakers, as the legal journalist Jeffrey Toobin and a few other writers have done, is to invite moral condemnation. Even mild objections to their methods are dismissed as damning proof of either corruption—“principle-free, hackish, and opportunistic,” in Greenwald’s words—or outright complicity with Big Brother.

Sean Illing // In fact, what we’re seeing now, according to Rosenblum and her co-author Russell Muirhead, is more “conspiracism” and less theory. Which is to say, the purpose of conspiracy theories is no longer to explain reality or offer some account of the world; instead, the point is to erode trust in public figures or institutions.

She points to the recent Pizzagate conspiracy as a perfect example. This was a fake news story alleging that Hillary Clinton and her former campaign chair, John Podesta, ran a child sex ring in the basement of a pizzeria in Washington, DC. It was totally fabricated, but it proliferated enough online that a man eventually showed up at the restaurant with an assault rifle and fired at least one shot.

Hetze, Hakenkreuze und User, die Massenmördern huldigen: Auf der Gaming-Plattform Steam finden sich viele zweifelhafte Inhalte. Warum schreitet die Plattform nicht ein? Sie heißen „Kebeb remover“ oder geben sich als Pseudonym den Namen „Anders Brevik“, so heißt der rechte Terrorist, der 2011 in Norwegen 77 Menschen ermordete. Auch den Namen des Attentäters von Christchurch haben sich einige Steam-Nutzer als Nik-Name gegeben. 300 sollen es unmittelbar nach dem rechtsextremen Massenmord gewesen sein, bis Steam endlich einschritt. Ebenso soll das Manifest des Christchurch-Täters auf der Plattform kursiert sein. Kein Einzelfall, sagt Computerspielexperte Christian Huberts, der schon seit einiger Zeit die extremistischen Umtriebe auf Steam beobachtet: “Was einem sehr oft auf Steam begegnet sind jede Menge Mems, die mit rechten Codes arbeiten, als Hakenkreuze zum Beispiel, die da aus Emojis zusammengesetzt sind und da freimütig in Kommentarspalten reingesetzt werden. Das geht soweit, dass man dort Profile ausmachen kann, die sich mit Führereid vorstellen, dort rechtsextreme Musik posten und andere User einladen zu Troll-Gruppen, wie Reconquista Germania.” // Warum sich auf der Gaming-Plattform #Steam Rechtsextreme tummeln » dokmz – https://www.dokmz.com/2019/04/12/warum-sich-auf-der-gaming-plattform-steam-rechtsextreme-tummeln/
