Should We Have Tolerance for Terror?
<www.actforamerica.org/> Is a Tolerant Culture Being Replaced by an Intolerant One? Gatestone Institute: <www.actforamerica.org/tolerantculture> One need not go back centuries to the Muslim conquest of the Christian late classical world -- the medieval Barbary corsair raids, the Ottoman yoke in Central and Eastern Europe or the slave markets of Kaffa in Tatar Muslim Crimea -- to understand that this violence clearly predates the European colonial era, the creation of the modern state of Israel, or the issue of climate change.Countries such as China, Nigeria or Kenya that are not Western, not "imperialist", not whatever the excuses that Islamists make, are still spectacularly attacked by similar stabbings. Month on month, there seems almost nowhere that Islamic terror did not strike.

Bannon, Miller and Gorka – keep these white supremacists off my TV (sign this)
[ act.credoaction.com/sign/bannon_miller_gorka ]No media platform for Bannon, Miller or Gorka to promote hate Tell MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, NPR and other traditional media outlets: “Don’t use your platform to let Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller or Sebastian Gorka promote Trump’s hate.” Add your name: [ act.credoaction.com/sign/bannon_miller_gorka ]Sign the petition ► Dear Anne, [ act.credoaction.com/sign/bannon_miller_gorka ]Bannon, Gorka and Miller are White Supremacits Since last week’s white supremacist Nazi violence in Charlottesville, Donald Trump has doubled – even tripled – down on white supremacy and racist terror. It is time to do everything we can to shut down his extremist hate. Trump is by no means the only white supremacist in his administration. His White supremacists’ House is filled with them. Yesterday, Trump caved to public pressure and fired Steve Bannon, founder of the white supremacist news site Breitbart, who served as his top adviser through most of his campaign and presidency.^1 Still there is Muslim-ban architect Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka, an adviser known for his anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic views and Nazi ties. Trump’s fascism, white supremacy, misogyny and bigotry are a threat not only to the communities he targets, but to the very fabric of our democracy. Media outlets should be challenging the right-wing hate Trump promotes, not giving his surrogates free airtime to legitimize it. That’s why we’re standing with our friends at Muslim Advocates and Bend the Arc to call on media outlets to stop booking Trump’s racist surrogates. Can you add your voice today and demand they stop? [ act.credoaction.com/sign/bannon_miller_gorka ]Tell MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, NPR and other major traditional news outlets: Don’t use your platform to let Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller or Sebastian Gorka promote Trump’s hate. Click here to sign the petition. Bannon is an anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic white supremacist, domestic abuser and conspiracy theorist. He was one of the masterminds behind the Trump administration’s failed attempts to gut health care for millions of Americans unconstitutional Muslim ban, anti-immigrant border wall and the sweeping abortion restrictions coming out of Congress.^2 He believes in the dangerous lie that the United States is at war with Islam and America should be the center of a new movement of right-wing populism centering on white supremacy.^3 While Bannon may no longer be in the White House, credible media outlets should still refuse to offer him a platform to promote his agenda of hate and xenophobia, which stokes dangerous and vile white supremacy. Just days before the white supremacist Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Gorka was on MSNBC saying that white supremacists are not the problem. ^4 When Donald Trump refused to condemn a fire bomb thrown into a Minnesota mosque recently,^5 MSNBC gave Gorka a platform to defend Trump’s hateful, selective silence.^6 Gorka “defends the indefensible” for the Trump administration.^7 Whether it is justifying Trump’s silence on hate crimes against Muslims, downplaying the dangers of white supremacist violence or escalating Trump’s reckless antagonism of North Korea, Gorka is Trump’s man. Miller’s mentor is well-known white supremacist Richard Spencer,^8 and he has deep ties to anti-Muslim and white supremacist projects and organizations. He recently defended an extremist immigration bill with Nazi-era coded language and by using white supremacist talking points to try to degrade the Statue of Liberty’s message of welcoming all immigrants.^9 Trump’s racist, white supremacist surrogates should not be put on air as experts with valid opinions – it’s time for MSNBC and other major news outlets to ban their hate. [ act.credoaction.com/sign/bannon_miller_gorka ]Tell MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, NPR and other major traditional news outlets: Don’t use your platform to let Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller or Sebastian Gorka promote Trump’s hate. Click here to sign the petition. Traditional corporate media outlets have a huge amount of power. They dictate the information, ideas and perspectives that many Americans consume as news. When they promote Trump surrogates who spew hatred, white supremacy, fascism, misogyny and bigotry, they are normalizing that hate and legitimizing every aspect of Trump’s dangerous agenda. We have to hold the media accountable when they whitewash extremism and demand they push back on hatred and white supremacy.

BREAKING NEWS: Bannon OUT!
A new message from your friends at People For the American Way. *********************** Yes! The New York Times and others are reporting that Trump has told aides he plans to fire Steve Bannon! You helped make this happen! It's a huge win and a great example of what organized grassroots pressure can accomplish. But we need to keep speaking out against Trump's defense of white supremacists and keep the pressure on until he fires the other white nationalist enablers in his White House, Sebastian Gorka and Stephen Miller. If you haven't added your name to the petition please do so immediately: Sign the petition demanding Trump also fire Gorka and Miller>> act.pfaw.org/sign/fire-bannon-gorka-miller One down, two to go. Keep speaking out and keep spreading the word! Thank you, Katie, PFAW ++++ +++ ++ TELL TRUMP: Fire Steve Bannon, Seb Gorka, and Stephen Miller! act.pfaw.org/sign/fire-bannon-gorka-miller Dear Anne, Any condemnation Trump makes of white supremacists and the Alt-Right are meaningless as long as the white nationalists he has as some of his top advisors remain in the White House. Trump advisors Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, and Stephen Miller hold and promote extremist views that must be rejected -- especially now, in the wake of the deadly white supremacist violence in Charlottesville. Bannon is the former head of Breitbart News, an extreme right-wing site he has called the "platform for the Alt-Right." Gorka, a top counter-terrorism advisor for Trump, has been linked to a Hungarian Nazi group -- the group claims he is a member and he wore a medal from the group to Trump's inaugural ball. And Miller, who has been described as a former mentee of avowed neo-Nazi Richard Spencer[1], frequently employs language that appeals to white resentment and even uses phrases known to be Nazi "dog whistles." Demand Trump fire and publicly disavow Bannon, Gorka, and Miller>> act.pfaw.org/sign/fire-bannon-gorka-miller Trump took two full days to explicitly condemn the actions of white supremacists, Nazis, and KKK members in Charlottesville which led to multiple injuries and a death directly caused by an avowed Trump supporter and neo-Nazi. But these are empty words when he continues to receive policy and strategy advice from supporters of the Alt-Right and white nationalists. These men have had their hands in Trump's anti-Muslim policies. They use coded language to disparage minority groups that might slip by most people but that extremists and white nationalists hear loud and clear. Need more evidence? - In an interview with Mother Jones, Bannon infamously claimed his Breitbart website had become "the platform for the Alt-Right" and acknowledged the appeal of the Alt-Right to white supremacists and Nazis.[2] And he has been frequently on record promoting racist ideas and using misogynist and homophobic slurs.[3] - Gorka co-founded a political party with members of a group with a history of anti-Semitism and is allegedly a member of a Hungarian neo-Nazi group.[4] - Arguing with CNN reporter Jim Acosta, Steve Miller said: "It reveals your cosmopolitan bias to a shocking degree." While this might seem like a strange insult to some, Miller's language was an echo of anti-Semitic Soviet vitriol and incredibly appealing to white nationalists -- including neo-Nazi Richard Spencer -- who referred to the interaction as a "triumph" for his worldview.[5] But that's not the only dog whistle he threw out -- Miller's whole thesis that the famous Emma Lazarus poem on the Statue of Liberty was added later and is unimportant to American values is a common white nationalist refrain. White nationalists from David Duke to the white supremacist website Stormfront.org to Richard Spencer have all attacked Lazarus's poem and its message of inclusivity.[6] There are no shades of gray here -- white nationalists have NO PLACE in the White House. Tell Trump that Bannon, Gorka, and Miller must be fired IMMEDIATELY>> act.pfaw.org/sign/fire-bannon-gorka-miller None of these men should ever have been allowed in the White House in the first place. Since Trump's election the influence of racism and hatred from his campaign and his advisors has been very apparent, and instances of hate crimes and violence by members of the far-right have increased exponentially. It's too late for Trump to undo the damage his rhetoric has already done. But he can make a statement against hate by expelling the white nationalists in his own administration.

Our next big fight in Congress
Friend -- Stop me if you've heard this before: Congressional leaders and the White House are working together on bad legislation that would hurt tens of millions of Americans. This time, it's through a dangerous proposed budget and tax plan -- and while we don't know exactly what the final products will look like, this much is clear: -- They want to give huge tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations at the expense of families who need help. -- They want to clear out spending to pay for those tax breaks by cutting essential programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security - Disability insurance. -- Separately, they want to roll back expansions of overtime protections that ensure fair pay for a day's work, and lift the wages of millions of middle-class Americans. None of these policies has support from the majority of Americans, and it's up to us to speak out: my.ofa.us/Fight-For-A-Fair-Plan They're going to do everything they can to pass these pieces of legislation -- but as we just saw in our health care fight, together we can make noise at the highest policy levels. Here's what we'll do together over the next few months: stay involved, plug into local actions on the ground, listen to real people who will be affected by these policies, and hold the representatives who are rubber-stamping these bad policies responsible. So if you think a middle-class family deserves more tax relief than a hedge fund CEO ... or that programs like Medicare must be protected ... or that we need to stand up to big banks ... or that we must ensure fair pay for a day's work .. ... we need you in this fight. Say you're ready: my.ofa.us/Fight-For-A-Fair-Plan Thanks, Saumya Saumya Narechania National Issues Campaign Manager Organizing for Action

Charlottesville – we cannot remain silent (sign this)
[ act.credoaction.com/sign/Take_Down ]Time for Confederate symbols to go Tell federal, state and local government officials: “Take down all symbols of the Confederacy. There is no room in America to celebrate white supremacy and racist terror.” Add your name: [ act.credoaction.com/sign/Take_Down ]Sign the petition ► Dear Anne, [ act.credoaction.com/sign/Take_Down ]Take down Confederate symbols Donald Trump just can’t stop siding with white supremacy. Yesterday morning, he called confederate monuments “beautiful” and irreplaceable and said the “history and culture of our great country is being ripped apart” by their removal.^1 Confederate monuments are symbols of white supremacy and racist terror. White supremacists did not erect them right after the Civil War. Instead they put those symbols up during the early 1900s when they were using Jim Crow laws and KKK terror to establish de facto slavery in the South, and during the 1960s and 70s, to lash back at civil rights movement advances.^2 They did not put up those symbols to commemorate history, they put them up to foment, condone and institutionalize white supremacy. White supremacist Nazis chose to bring their racist terror to Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend because city officials are planning to move Confederate statues from city parks. But no matter how much Donald Trump tries to focus us on “beautiful” statues, the terrorists’ planned race riot in Charlottesville was not just about symbols. It was about propagating and attracting recruits to their vile and unacceptable ideology of white supremacy. Donald Trump’s racist hate has given white supremacists an invitation and opportunity to grow and expand their movement and be bolder and more threatening in their attempts to reverse decades of civil rights progress. We cannot give them an inch or let them slow down our fight to reclaim our public spaces from symbols of racist hate and terror. That why we are joining with our friends at Color Of Change to demand that all Confederate symbols come down now. [ act.credoaction.com/sign/Take_Down ]Join us in calling for the removal of all Confederate symbols in America. Click here to sign the petition. Confederate monuments and statues attempt to glorify and erase a stain on our nation’s history for which we have not made amends and from which we have still not recovered. It is not just statues, plaques and monuments. There are at least 1,500 Confederate symbols in public spaces across the country.^3 Almost 200 schools, as well as buildings on many college campuses, are named after Confederate leaders.^4 Some states still allow drivers to have the Confederate flag on their license plates.^5 Since Dylann Roof massacred churchgoers at Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston, South Carolina, activists have been organizing to remove symbols of the Confederacy across the nation. As anti-racist organizers have found success in cities like Charleston, New Orleans and Charlottesville, white supremacists have become more desperate. At the same time, they have been emboldened by Donald Trump’s racism and fascism to bring their hate into a much more public light. Today’s white supremacists and neo-Nazis latch onto these symbols as a way to gin up their racist base. They rally around Confederate statues and use them as a pretext to commit terrorism and murder. We can no longer coddle white supremacists and Nazis or indulge their lies about our country’s racist heritage. It is past time that we stop the national veneration of people who committed treason in the name of slavery and a war that was fought to maintain white supremacy and the oppression of African-Americans. [ act.credoaction.com/sign/Take_Down ]Join us in calling for the removal of all Confederate symbols in America. Click here to sign the petition. The continued display of white supremacist symbols only serves to further signal that white supremacy is not only tolerated in America, but celebrated. We cannot allow white supremacist Nazi terrorists like those in Charlottesville to intimidate us and slow down efforts to confront and dismantle symbols of white supremacy. The racist, fascist bigot occupying the White House has proved this week that he will not stand up to hate. We know the cowardly right-wing extremists in the Republican Party will not step up and confront the white supremacists in their base and the white supremacy at the heart of many of their party’s policies. So it is up to us. Already, what happened in Charlottesville, combined with Trump’s shameful decision to side with white supremacists, has prompted cities and states across the country to start removing their monuments.^6 We need to pressure the leaders of our communities, our states and the federal government to take bold action and refuse to normalize hate.

Congress: Censure Trump NOW
A new message from your friends at People For the American Way. *********************** Anne, They marched as a group around Charlottesville, carrying torches, waving swastikas, chanting Nazi slogans and other racist and anti-Semitic chants. One of them killed a woman and injured 19 others when he plowed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters who were there to defend American values against the "Unite the Right" rally's message of hate. Trump said they were not all white supremacists … that many of them were, in fact, "fine people." He said the violence should be blamed on "both sides." People For the American Way and PFAW's African American Ministers In Action network are calling on Congress not to let this stand, and to hold Trump accountable for preaching hate from the White House. Sign the petition: Congress needs to CENSURE President Trump now!>> act.pfaw.org/sign/censure-trump-white-supremacy/ US Reps. Jerrold Nadler, Bonnie Watson Coleman, and Pramila Jayapal are introducing a resolution to censure Donald Trump for refusing to condemn the KKK and Nazis, and for employing white nationalists -- like Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Sebastian Gorka -- in his White House. The censure will also call on Trump to fire those advisors with deep ties to the so-called "Alt-Right" -- something PFAW is also already calling for. A petition delivery is being planned for as early as TOMORROW, so your signature is needed right away, Laura. It's not good enough that Congress speak out against violent white supremacists. They must speak out against a president who enables and emboldens them with both his rhetoric and his policies. The continued rise of the hate and hate-inspired violence in this country will not stop until our leaders make it crystal clear that Trump's kowtowing to white nationalists and his continued attacks on communities of color are unacceptable. That's why a censure should be such a no-brainer. A censure is a formal reprimand by Congress of an individual whose actions are beneath the dignity of the office they hold. Join PFAW and African American Ministers In Action in supporting the censure resolution against Donald Trump -- add your name now!>> act.pfaw.org/sign/censure-trump-white-supremacy/ Trump's inability to hold white supremacists accountable and do something as simple as take a stand against Nazis is not the America we want to see. The entire nation rallied together to fight and defeat the Nazis the first time around. Now, the president of the Unites States can't even speak out against them. It's shameful, and it tarnishes the presidency and our entire country. Speak out now. Support the censure. And then help spread the word after you sign the petition. act.pfaw.org/sign/censure-trump-white-supremacy/ Thank you for all you do!

[On Notice] 50 Republicans
Patricia, We've put a record 50 Republicans "On Notice" for their horrible anti-choice records, and that means we're planning to flip their seats in 2018. This is our most robust Republican opposition program ever. Voters know they deserve better than these guys. They deserve EMILY's List women. And we already have several EMILY's List women running against these Republicans with more to come. Donate to make sure we have the resources to recruit and train strong candidates to run against these 50 Republicans next year: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170811_email_OnNoticeText We've already endorsed women running against these three On Notice Republicans: Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) once sent a fundraising letter to a bank calling out an employee who worked there for being one of his vocal opponents. She later resigned after being required to write a statement to the CEO. It's unacceptable for an elected official to intimidate their constituents like this. Our EMILY's List candidate running against him: Mikie Sherrill Rep. Ed Royce (CA-39) once attended an anti-Muslim protest outside a fundraiser for disaster relief and women's shelters. He told the crowd that multiculturalism was paralyzing America. Our EMILY's List candidate running against him: Mai Khanh Tran And Trumpcare's Deciding Vote Dean Heller (NV-Senate) is one of our best opportunities to flip a Senate seat blue next year. After protesting about the heavy human cost of Trumpcare, Heller folded and was the deciding vote to advance the legislation. Our EMILY's List candidate running against him: Jacky Rosen If we have these three women's backs, they all can flip critical seats. Donate to help Mikie, Mai Khanh, Jacky, and the dozens of women we're recruiting to unseat On Notice Republicans: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170811_email_OnNoticeText Thank you, Jenna Kruse Vice President of Research, EMILY's List P.S. These 50 Republicans are just the start. We'll be putting more vulnerable Republicans On Notice over the next couple of months. Donate to help recruit and support pro-choice Democratic women to run against them: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170811_email_OnNoticeText

PROPAGANDA: How Google Protects Jihad
<www.actforamerica.org/> Google Manipulates Search Results to Conceal Criticism of Islam and Jihad PJ Media: <www.actforamerica.org/googlejihad> The jihad against the freedom of speech is advancing rapidly, and most people don’t even know it’s happening. Turkey’s state-run news outlet Anadolu Agency reports: Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results.

Sign the petition: It’s not “alt-right,” it’s white supremacy
[ act.credoaction.com/sign/No_More_AltRight ]They are not “alt-right,” they are white supremacists Tell traditional corporate media outlets, including the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC: “Stop sanitizing and normalizing white supremacists and Nazis. Stop using the term 'alt-right.'” Add your name: [ act.credoaction.com/sign/No_More_AltRight ]Sign the petition ► Dear Anne, [ act.credoaction.com/sign/No_More_AltRight ]“Alt-right” has got to go “Alt-right” has got to go. Donald Trump has emboldened white supremacists across the country to emerge from the sewers of the extreme right wing into the light of day. But before Trump’s rise to power, white supremacists got a 21st century rebrand.^1 Richard Spencer, an infamous white supremacist who wants to create an Aryan homeland for dispossessed white people, coined the term “alt-right” in 2008.^2 He wanted to encapsulate extremist right-wing ideals of “white identity” and the preservation of “Western civilization” and make room for a different kind of conservative.^3 What he has really made room for is a new kind of white supremacist, unburdened by the negative baggage of Klan robes or Nazi swastikas. When traditional corporate media outlets call today’s white supremacists “alt-right,” they sanitize and normalize a movement that seeks to reverse decades of civil rights gains and solidify white power and privilege, using violence if necessary. They need to stop. [ act.credoaction.com/sign/No_More_AltRight ]Tell traditional corporate media outlets: Call white supremacy what it is. Stop using the term “alt-right.” Click here to sign the petition. Last weekend, white supremacists spent almost 24 hours violently promoting their white resentment and rage in Charlottesville, Virginia. Their torchlit cries of “white lives matter,” “Jews will not replace us,” “one people, one nation, end immigration” and “heil Trump” gave way to fights with counter protesters and finally a terror attack that killed one counter protester and injured almost 20 more. What white supremacists planned in Charlottesville was more like a military invasion than a protest.^4 They seemed more committed to inciting violence and raising the profile of their extremist movement than staging a peaceful rally.^5 ^ Trump led the way in condoning their terrifying actions and communicating to them that he is on their side.^6 The tweeter-in-chief was silent while torch- and assault-weapon-carrying racists marched through the streets. When he first spoke out on Saturday, he shamefully blamed “many sides” for the violence. It took him 48 hours to condemn racist violence and white supremacy, 48 hours that white supremacists celebrated as a victory and a rallying point. But the media played a powerful role as well. Though most outlets condemned Trump’s refusal to call out racism in his initial statement, they repeatedly referred to the white supremacist Nazi terrorists as protesters and their race riot as a rally or clash.^7,8 They gave space to guests who tried to strike false equivalencies between the white supremacists and anti-racist counter protesters or the Black LIves Matter movement more broadly. This is not the time for the media to normalize white supremacists as conventional political actors wearing suits and ties and pretend that there are two sides to white supremacy and Nazism. As Van Jones pointed out while blasting Trump: This is a day in which… an American citizen was assassinated in broad daylight by a Nazi. A Nazi, who the day before had been marching with torches down American streets saying anti-Jewish, anti-black stuff… this not a time to talk about both sides.^9 When it comes to this kind of hate, there are not many sides. There are not two sides. The media needs to do better and we need to force them to act. [ act.credoaction.com/sign/No_More_AltRight ]Tell media outlets: Stop normalizing and sanitizing white supremacy. Click here to sign the petition. Until yesterday, the Associated Press Stylebook raised flags about the use of “alt-right” in media coverage of the white supremacy movement, and suggested that reporters “avoid” using the term but did not go as far as recommending that reporters not use it.^10 This week, they took a slightly stronger stance. They still suggested that writers “avoid” the term but also called out “alt-right” as a “euphemism to disguise racist aims.”^11 These guidelines, which reporters and editors do not even consistently follow, are not enough. Outlets that use “alt-right” are dignifying white supremacy’s horrific racism, xenophobia, misogyny, anti-Semitism and anti-LGBTQ hate. That’s why ThinkProgress stopped using the term last November.^12 Other media outlets should follow their lead. Tell media outlets: Call white supremacy what it is.
