Crowdfunding sites based in the United States are closing down pages dedicated to right-wing campaigns in the wake of the violence at Charlottesville.

The decision has affected not only campaigns to support James Fields, the man accused of driving his car into counter protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, but also – for example – right-wing group Defend Europe, that set sail on the Mediterranean to stop refugees reaching the continent.

The president gave the racists permission to take off their hoods. Even after the violence Saturday in Virginia, he refused to condemn them by name. But we can.

Over at our favorite website for classy headlines and snarky stories, Wonkette, there’s a fall-flat-on-your-face article about a twitter exchange that begins with a post by White House correspondent Lucian Wintrich, who writes for the right-wing conspiracy blog The Gateway Pundit. Seems Mr. Wintrich was none too pleased with a photo of three Native Americans flipping off Mount Rushmore. Below is the photo with his response:

Today marks the 22nd anniversary of the worst atrocity on European soil since the second world war, the genocide in Srebrenica. This year, thousands will gather at more than 400 events in the UK to commemorate those who were murdered in the genocide and to reflect on how hatred is affecting our communities here in the UK and what we can do to prevent this.

Last year reminded us that the UK cannot afford to become complacent about community cohesion, with some sections of the media and certain political figures stirring up hatred in our communities and a 41% increase in reported hate crime in the aftermath of the EU referendum. A disproportionate level of this hate crime has been targeted at women. At the same time, reported violence against women in the UK has reached an all-time high. As in Bosnia, the root of these crimes is the dehumanisation of others – the belief that the perpetrator is superior by reason of sex, race or nationality, and has the right to control, humiliate or hurt their victims.

If we want to build stronger, safer, more cohesive communities, we must name and address the issue of male violence against women and girls and recognise that hatred and dehumanisation are the root of this. We must include sexism and violence against women and girls in our fight against all forms of identity-based hatred.

That’s why we are breaking the silence by inviting women such as Bakira Hasečić, president of the Association of Women Victims of War and a survivor of genocidal rape, to speak about their experiences at commemorations in the UK. Bakira is one of the bravest women I have ever met. By speaking out

‘Around 1,000 members of that march were black-clad anarchists, though the demands and politics of the protesters in Hamburg range wildly. Many said they were demonstrating against globalization and capitalism. Others protested the policies of certain leaders, like Trump, who has targeted immigrants and Muslims, in addition to withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate agreement, and authoritarian leaders like Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Others expressed dissatisfaction with the outsized importance of the summit, which brings together the world’s 20 most powerful economies and attracts wide-scale protests virtually every year.’

‘The protests also kept some summit attendees indoors. Spouses of world leaders typically attend a host of events during the summit, but U.S. First Lady Melania Trump was unable to leave her accommodations as protesters gathered outside her guest house. “The Hamburg police could not give us clearance to leave,” Stephanie Grisham, a spokesperson for the First Lady, said. “She was prevented from participating in today’s spousal program, which she was looking forward to.”

Trump herself tweeted her concern for those injured in the clashes, while making no connection between the demonstrations and her husband’s policies:’

So true.

If you have a bus, a train or a plane that is traveling and is filed by wicked passengers, you can smell danger. It may not arrival safely. It is hard to know what a wicked passenger can do. Such a passenger can even shatter the bus, the train or the plane with an explosive and die with others. In fact, there are people who do this.

When I think of this, what comes to my mind is the world in which we live. It is like a bus, a train or a plane taking us to our earthly destiny which is our earthly destination. Because the world has so many wicked passengers aboard its vehicle, the world is as turbulent as it is. The wicked passengers are making life unbearable for many. They are killing, cheating, exploiting, suppressing, violating human rights etc.

Wicked passengers on our earthly plane are…
