"eradicate all non whites" :roll:

That one line alone near the start there shows how much leftists actually listen to what people on the right actually say - ie they dont listen, they just cry nazi , having already reached their conclusions then go to attack mode.

I shut the video after that line... i havent heard any prominent alt righters saying they want to eradicate non whites.

eradicate -

To get rid of as if by tearing up by the roots: Their goal was to eradicate poverty. See Synonyms at abolish, eliminate.

What you say, Ausrotten? :chuckle:

Dog-whistle politics
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dog-whistle politics is political messaging employing coded language that appears to mean one thing to the general population but has an additional, different or more specific resonance for a targeted subgroup. The phrase is often used as a pejorative because of the inherently deceptive nature of the practice and because the dog-whistle messages are frequently distasteful to the general populace. The analogy is to a dog whistle, whose high-frequency whistle is heard by dogs but inaudible to humans.

The term can be distinguished from "code words" used in some specialist professions, in that dog-whistling is specific to the political realm. The messaging referred to as the dog-whistle has an understandable meaning for a general audience, rather than being incomprehensible

How so? One of the ways has been an agreed-upon glossary of euphemisms and verbiage that doesn't seem to be overtly racist or intolerant, but that can be understood by those aligned with the ideology in an in-group/out-group tactic.

What are we to do to understand or identify their thought process? One way is to lay out some of their words and "dog whistles" to undercut their influence and help us pinpoint where and how they communicate to each other in front of a national audience – and especially on social media. (For the purposes of this exercise, I'm going to ignore more obvious "code" words like Googles, Skypes and Yahoos, Blood and Soil or cucks – which are very offensive but can't be easily embedded into typical political dialogue.)

Cosmopolitan. This term, popularized in the White House's debate over the poem on the Statue of Liberty's pedestal – when used to describe a reporter's mentality – is a code for urban, progressive elites who pose a threat of leading the nation forward and not back. When a senior policy adviser got into a back-and-forth with the CNN White House correspondent and labeled him thus, the extreme right cheered.
Global Special Interests. As detected by Vice and other media outlets, this phrase, or "globalists" and other variations, is primarily shorthand for "Jewish people" or, most charitably, the multilateral free market that doesn't abide by what the right considers "traditional values" protectionist policies.
Take Back. You hear this in Charlottesville and read it on extreme right protesters' posters as a rallying cry or a command. The agitators claim they must "take America back from …" or "rescue society from …" but the natural follow up question would be "take back from whom?" And the answer is where the euphemisms stop and their dark truth emerges.
Majority Minority. This is certainly less veiled than many of the extreme right's verbiage, as it speaks to the demographic shift that America is projected to see in the next century, as Caucasian populations decline in proportion. But it's the extent that this is a threat to be actively fought and defended against that makes it a dog whistle and call to action.
Alt-right. Enough already. Much of the contemporary conversation has adopted this new epitaph for the extreme right. But this is merely calling an old threat a new, slightly distracting name – and therefore possibly distorting or diluting the impact. Words matter. And so does clarity. As much as people are saying "call it by its name" about the controversial actions by extremists, we should keep this conversation clear and call these actors by their name. Avoid using "alt-right" and eliminate any confusion by calling them "white supremacists" or "racists" or "neo-Nazis" or "extreme right."
Bear in mind that these code words are not incontrovertibly linked to the extreme right, and can easily be used in informed commentary and debate. For example, many conversations center around the value of "heritage," but this term is so universal that any additional bias or agenda is only detectable through greater context. This small, short initial list is envisioned to provide you with a starting point to detect any potential agenda if you see something flit by on Twitter or a talking head use these terms or variations on cable news outlets.

An Ex-KKK Grand Wizard Tells Us How Donald Trump Dog-Whistles to Closet Racists


Former Klux Klux Klan Grand Wizard Tom Metzger says Donald Trump’s recent decision to tap Breitbart Media’s Steve Bannon as his campaign CEO amounts to dog whistling that most people won’t hear, but that will appeal to “closeted racists.”

Metzger, who has been described as “one of the most notorious living white supremacists in the United States” by the Southern Poverty Law Center and served as the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s, knows there aren’t enough white supremacists to swing a presidential election. But he says there are plenty of voters who secretly harbor racist feelings that they keep to themselves for fear of being stigmatized.

“There aren’t that many white separatists out there but there are a lot of people who are closeted racists,” Metzger told TheWrap. “They don’t like to call themselves racist but they wouldn’t want their daughter to marry a black man.”

Pepe the Frog cartoonist forces withdrawal of 'alt-right' children's book

Matt Furie, whose ‘peaceful frog-dude’ has been co-opted as a far-right meme, has stopped distribution of book that lawyers say espouses Islamophobia

he cartoonist who created Pepe the Frog has taken legal action to force the author of a self-published children’s book that uses the character to espouse “racist, Islamophobic and hate-filled themes” to give all of his profits to a Muslim advocacy organisation.

Pepe, created by Matt Furie in the early 2000s as a “peaceful frog-dude” with the catchphrase “feels good man”, was adopted as a symbol by supporters of the US “alt-right” last year. He has since been designated by the Anti-Defamation League as a hate symbol, but Furie has been attempting to end the association, even killing off the character in one comic strip and subsequently launching a Kickstarter to raise money to “save Pepe”.


Pepe the Frog creator kills off internet meme co-opted by white supremacists

“Pepe became a meme around 2010, then stuck around the internet long enough to become an institutionally recognised hate mascot. Needless to say it’s a nightmare so I killed him off. But now I’d like to bring him back, and I’d like to ask your help in funding a new zine celebrating a resurrected Pepe, one that shall shine a light in all this darkness and feel good again,” wrote Furie on the Kickstarter platform, which raised more than $34,000 (£26,000), substantially more than his $10,000 goal.

Furie’s lawyers have also successfully stopped the distribution of Eric Hauser’s children’s book The Adventures of Pepe and Pede. According to the Washington Post, the book sees Pepe and “his best friend Centipede” – centipede is a term for Trump supporters – as they attempt to “bring freedom back to Wishington Farm”, battling an alligator named “Alkah” with buds from “the honesty tree”. Hauser was an assistant principal at a Texas middle school until details of the book became public.

Hauser, who subsequently resigned, told the Dallas Morning News that he had been unaware of Pepe the Frog’s association with the white supremacist movement until he published the book, believing him instead to be a conservative meme. He told the Dallas Observer that the book was was not intended to be racist.

But WilmerHale, the law firm representing Furie, said the book “espoused racist, Islamophobic and hate-filled themes, included allusions to the alt-right movement and was deliberately targeted at children”. The firm said that when Hauser was threatened with litigation he admitted infringement, and agreed to stop distribution of the book in all forms. It is no longer for sale on Amazon.

“Under US copyright law, Furie is entitled to all of the profits that Hauser made by selling his infringing book. Instead, per the agreement – and at Furie’s insistence – Hauser will be required to give all of his profits to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization,” said WilmerHale.

According to Motherboard, that amounts to $1,521.54. “Furie does not want money made by peddling hateful themes to children,” WilmerHale told the website. “Furie wants one thing to be clear: Pepe the Frog does not belong to the alt-right. As this action shows, Furie will aggressively enforce his intellectual property, using legal action if necessary, to end the misappropriation of Pepe the Frog … He will make sure that no one profits by using Pepe in alt-right propaganda – and particularly not by targeting children.”
