Greeted by protests, Rep. Ilhan Omar tells LA-area Muslims to ‘raise hell’ in face of intolerance

Freshman Congresswoman Ilham Omar of Minnesota urged some 400 Los Angeles-area Muslims packed inside the Woodland Hills Hilton on Saturday to stand defiant and “raise hell” in the face of discrimination they confront as Muslims in America. It’s advice the politician appears to have adopted as her own strategy, as this appearance — a fund-raising event hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations — came just weeks after her comments sparked national controversy and exposed a generational ...

‘Why Are We Doing This?’: Trump Aides Don’t Understand McCain, Conway Attacks

President Trump’s aides are befuddled by his latest choice in nemeses. According to a Wednesday Politico report, some close to Trump believe the President is hitting the late-Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and the husband of one of his most loyal aides to distract from criticism over his lukewarm response to the massacre in New Zealand and the controversy surrounding the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max jets. Others are at a loss. “It does not appear to be a great use of our time to talk about George...

Trump Blockade of Huawei Fizzles In European 5G Rollout

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: Last summer, the Trump administration started a campaign to convince its European allies to bar China's Huawei from their telecom networks. Bolstered by the success of similar efforts in Australia and New Zealand, the White House sent envoys to European capitals with warnings that Huawei's gear would open a backdoor for Chinese spies. The U.S. even threatened to cut off intelligence sharing if Europe ignored its advice. So far, not a single Eur...

Word of the week: Invasion

On March 15, a gunman killed at least 50 people and injured another 50 as they gathered in two Christchurch mosques. Minutes before the attacks, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had been emailed a 74-page document, variously called a “manifesto” and a “screed,” purported to have been written by the gunman. In it, the man – a 28-year-old Australian living in New Zealand – denounced immigrants as “invaders.” Hours later, Donald Trump held a ceremony at the White House to mark the firs...

Conway: People Look For ‘Cheap And Easy’ To Align NZ Shooter With Trump Ideology

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway berated people for looking for the “cheap and easy” by aligning the motivations of the New Zealand shooter with a Trump-MAGA ideology. “I guess everybody scoured [the shooter’s manifesto], searched for Donald Trump’s name and there it is one time,” Conway said Monday morning on “Fox and Friends.” “I think people look for the cheap and easy, especially if it fits their own ideology.” She called the comparison “predictable and outrageous.” Conway says peo...

The fork in the road for social media and our society

The horror from Christchurch, New Zealand, that exploded across newspaper pages and television, computer and smartphone screens this weekend captured imaginations in ways that no one could possibly have imagined beforehand. The fact that one individual armed with a semi-automatic rifle could visit such an outrage upon people worshipping in a place of religion isn’t the worst of it, awful and distressing though this event is with at least 50 people shot dead and scores wounded, some in cr...

But we must not omit the part played by British politicians in deliberately adopting language that promotes hatred of religious and racial groups.

New Zealand mosque shooter 'acted alone'; sent manifesto to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

Police in New Zealand said on Sunday that the right-wing terrorist behind a massacre at two mosques in Christchurch was acting alone, as it emerged the killer's manifesto had been sent to the country's prime minister minutes before the tragedy unfolded. Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, sent a racist, rambling manifesto to prime minister Jacinda Ardern in which he denied being linked to any organisations and said he was acting on his own. The document, which praised President Donald Trump ...

Trump stance on Muslims, Fox host in spotlight after mosque shootings

The violence against Muslims in New Zealand on Friday put a spotlight on Trump's rhetoric about Islam and revived criticism of his handling of white supremacist violence. "Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro," Trump wrote in Twitter posts in which he blamed Democrats for trying to "silence a majority of our Country" and advocated supporters to "stop working soooo hard on being politically correct." At the same time, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney appeared on Sunday television news ...

On New Zealand And Dehumanization

One of the most difficult things to do in moments of tragedy is to take time to properly process one’s own thoughts while simultaneously processing the countless messages and calls of community members and multi-faith colleagues from around the world. To the non-Muslim colleagues who reached out, supported, and aided the Muslim friends and communities around the world, showing solidarity against hatred and violence, thank you. To the many police offers, security personnel, and volunteers who sto...

Where’s Mick? The Hands-Off COS Was In Las Vegas During Nat’l Emergency Debacle

WASHINGTON (AP) — As President Donald Trump struggled with mounting Republican defections over his emergency declaration to pay for a border wall, his acting White House chief of staff wasn’t on Capitol Hill cajoling former colleagues or in the West Wing making calls. Instead, Mick Mulvaney was in Las Vegas for an annual getaway with friends and family. It was a telling example of Mulvaney’s laissez-faire approach as he settles into a role that has bedeviled those who came before him. His pre...

Face It. Hate is Profitable.

Of all the places I’ve traveled to around the world, my favorite by far is New Zealand. Not only is its natural beauty absolutely spectacular, but its people are incredibly warm and welcoming. And as a Native Hawaiian, I was especially struck by how the indigenous Māori people had forged and maintained respectful and equal relationships with the western world. They weren’t marginalized or caricatured cast-offs lost in the military industrial-slash-tourism complex. They were respected and...

New Zealand massacre shines light on threat of far right extremism worldwide

The mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, which left 49 dead and many others injured, is a reminder that far-right, white supremacist ideology — which was linked to an overwhelming majority of violent extremist murders in the United States in 2017 — is the “most prominent and ascendant threat not just in the United States, but around the world,” a Southern California expert who studies hate and extremism said Friday. A 74-page manifesto posted online by the 28-year-old man charged with the...
