8/16: America’s pro-Nazi president defends Charlottesville rampage

Barry Grey - WSWS

In an event without precedent in American history, the president of the United States on Tuesday openly defended the neo-Nazi demonstrators who went on a violent and deadly rampage last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, while lashing out against anti-fascist counter-protesters.

“I think there’s blame on both sides,” Donald Trump repeated more than once in the course of an impromptu press conference at Trump Tower in Manhattan. Going further, he said there were “very fine people” among the fascists and that “not all of those people” at the rally were neo-Nazis or white supremacists “by any stretch.”

Trump’s comments Tuesday went beyond his statement Saturday, in which he blamed “many sides” for the violence that left 19 wounded and one anti-fascist protester, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, dead.

In response to shouted questions from reporters about his initial response to the fascist rampage, Trump repeatedly accused both sides of violence. “You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent,” he said. “No one wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now: You had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit and they were very, very violent.”

As the exchanges continued, Trump’s bias in favor of the fascists became more explicit. He twice cited Friday night’s KKK-like torch parade through the campus as proof that many if not most of the “Unite the Right” demonstrators were simply seeking to peacefully protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. In fact, they were shouting slogans such as “Jews will not replace us!”

By the end of the press conference, Trump was suggesting that the counter-protesters, whom he called the “alt-left,” were the aggressors, because, unlike the fascists, they did not have a permit. “But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest,” he said. “Because I don’t know if you know, they had a permit. The other group didn’t have a permit.”

While Trump’s comments were criticized by both Democratic and Republican politicians, they prompted lavish praise from former KKK leader David Duke, who tweeted: “Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa [Black Lives Matter and anti-fascist anarchist groups].”

Trump’s tirade on Tuesday has thrown the political system into deep crisis. The fact that the president is a Nazi and white supremacist sympathizer shatters the entire framework of the international political authority of the United States.

It will also have immense consequences for domestic stability. There is not a mass constituency for fascism and white supremacism in the United States. The Nazis and “alt-right” groups mobilized only a few hundred people as part of a national mobilization in Charlottesville. This compares to the protests of hundreds of thousands of people that followed Trump’s inauguration.

The nervous response to Trump’s press conference from the political elite, both Democrats and Republicans, is motivated primarily by fear of an explosion of opposition within the United States and internationally. Trump’s critics within the ruling class have spent the past seven months covering over the social and political character of the administration, focusing all their efforts on appealing to the intelligence agencies and the military based on a demand for a more aggressive policy against Russia.

Under conditions of mounting geo-political contradictions and intensifying economic crisis, the White House is facing multiple probes and possible indictments for alleged collusion with Russia and obstruction of justice. It is seeking to exploit political disorientation to build a far-right constituency outside of the established constitutional framework. Trump has brought fascists such as former Breitbart News head Stephen Bannon into the White House to direct this effort.

Even as Trump was supposedly bowing to demands for a condemnation of the KKK and neo-Nazis, he was continuing to appeal to the most right-wing, backward and disoriented social forces.

Over the past several days, he released a campaign ad for the 2020 election that denounces the media and the Democrats as Trump’s “enemies” and features photos of individual reporters and news anchors; he told Fox News he was seriously considering pardoning former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, convicted of contempt of court for refusing to obey an order to stop illegally arresting Hispanics on suspicion of being “illegal” immigrants; and on Tuesday—three days after a fascist protester used his car as a weapon to kill an anti-fascist demonstrator—he tweeted and then deleted a post of a train labeled “Trump” plowing into a cartoon figure bearing the CNN logo.

Trump also broke off his golf vacation at his New Jersey resort to return to Washington for a day in order to stage the signing of a trade war measure against China—part of his “America First” promotion of economic nationalism.

All of this is aimed at creating a social and political framework for a violent attack on working-class opposition to the policies of the financial aristocracy of war and social counterrevolution.

7/28: 15 Protesters Arrested After Demonstration Defending DACA at Texas Capitol


A supportive crowd of dozens chanted “undocumented and unafraid” and “sí se puede” as the demonstrators were arrested by state troopers.

Gus Bova – The Texas Observer

Fifteen immigrant rights supporters were arrested Wednesday outside the Texas Capitol after they blocked traffic in an effort to defend existing immigrant protections and demand permanent legal status.

A supportive crowd of dozens chanted “undocumented and unafraid” and “sí se puede” as the demonstrators were handcuffed and removed from a downtown Austin street on the north side of the Capitol, where they had sat for about 10 minutes. The activists were led into a nearby state building by Department of Public Safety troopers and later transported to the Travis County Jail.

“I’m doing this for my family and sisters who are undocumented and my 6 month-old-son so he can live in a world where human dignity is respected,” shouted Manuel Ramirez as a trooper escorted him. Ramirez said he’d been undocumented for 20 years but recently got permanent legal status, which was why he said he could “put [his] life on the line.”

The 15 activists are charged with obstructing a highway, a Class B misdemeanor, and range in age from 20 to 42, police said.

“After repeated requests by DPS officials to leave the roadway were ignored, the suspects were arrested without incident,” said DPS staff sergeant Victor Taylor in a statement.

The hourlong demonstration was led by so-called dreamers — recipients of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) — and came on the heels of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s urging the Trump administration to end the program. An organizer told the Observer that four of the 15 arrested activists were DACA recipients and that their immigration status could be jeopardized by a criminal record. Others were permanent residents or citizens, she said.

“I benefited from DACA, but I knew that was always temporary and didn’t benefit everyone in our community such as my parents,” said Catalina Adorno, an activist from San Antonio, while in cuffs. “There are some serious risks [to getting arrested] but… I know that all the small victories the immigrant community has had were the result of people taking risks.”

On June 29, Paxton led a 10-state coalition in sending a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions demanding that the administration terminate DACA, which has provided work permits and relief from deportation to more than 750,000 young immigrants since 2012. The letter threatens that if Trump doesn’t comply by September 5, the states will sue the federal government via an existing lawsuit. Trump has repeatedly vacillated on the question of DACA, and the letter appears to be an attempt to force his hand.

Behind the Wednesday protest was Movimiento Cosecha, a two-year-old immigrant rights network that emphasizes direct action and “noncooperation” to demonstrate the nation’s “dependence on immigrants,” according to Vera Parra, a Cosecha organizer. The network has a presence in more than 20 states and is run by full-time volunteers, Parra said.

A new version of the DREAM Act was introduced last week in the U.S. Senate. The DREAM Act of 2017 would provide a path to citizenship for many childhood arrivals. Similar versions of the proposal have failed in the past decade, and the 2017 version is unlikely to pass a Republican-controlled Congress and administration. During the regular legislative session, 24 protesters were arrested after an eight-hour sit-in at Governor Greg Abbott’s office lobby in opposition to Senate Bill 4, the so-called sanctuary cities ban.

Useful Handouts and Know Your Immigrant Rights When Marches
 
 
Immigrant Marches / Marchas de los Inmigrantes
(By ACLU)
EN ESPAÑOL
Acerca de la Union Americana de Libertades Civiles

Immigrants and their supporters are participating in marches all over the country to protest proposed national legislation and to seek justice for immigrants. The materials available here provide important information about the rights and risks involved for anyone who is planning to participate in the ongoing marches.

If government agents question you, it is important to understand your rights. You should be careful in the way you speak when approached by the police, FBI, or INS. If you give answers, they can be used against you in a criminal, immigration, or civil case.

The ACLU's publications below provide effective and useful guidance in several languages for many situations. The brochures apprise you of your legal rights, recommend how to preserve those rights, and provide guidance on how to interact with officials.
