AND THIS FRIDAY HE WILL HOST THE

HITLER EVENT IN FLORIDA.

TONIGHT NBC NEWS IS VERIFYING

SOME OF WHAT ARE BASICALLY THE

HE WAS WORKING THERE AS A

SECURITY GUARD.

HE WAS KILLED.

AND THERE IS SO MUCH THAT IS

DISGUSTING AND UNSETTLING ABOUT

THESE LATEST KILLINGS, INCLUDING

WHAT THEY CONNECT TO.

YOU MIGHT REMEMBER, IT WAS A

AREA AGO THIS WEEK THAT A GUNMAN

MOTIVATED BY A WHITE

SUPREMACIST, RACIST IDEOLOGY,

WENT TO BUFFALO, INTO A

SUPERMARKET IN A BLACK

NEIGHBORHOOD IN BUFFALO AND

KILLED TEN AFRICAN AMERICANS IN

THAT MARKET.

THAT WAS A YEAR AGO THIS WEEK.

THAT KILLER CLAIMED HE DID THAT,

HE MASSACRED ALL THOSE PEOPLE IN

THAT SUPERMARKET.

HE SAID HE DID IT BECAUSE OF THE

GREAT REPLACEMENT THEORY WHICH

YOU CAN HEAR ALL ABOUT ON THE

FOX NEWS CHANNEL.

HE SAID HE DID IT BECAUSE OF THE

GREAT REPLACEMENT THEORY AND

WHITE GENOCIDE WHICH YOU CAN

HEAR ALL ABOUT ON RIGHT WING

TALK RADIO.

HE KILLED TEN PEOPLE AND INJURED

EVEN MORE PEOPLE THAN THAT.

HE GOT, IN FEBRUARY THIS YEAR,

HE WAS SENTENCED TO 11 LIFE

SENTENCES.

THAT BUFFALO ATTACK WAS A YEAR

AGO THIS WEEK.

ALSO, THE CONNECTION TO ALLEN,

TEXAS.

ALLEN, TEXAS, IS WHERE THIS

LATEST MASSACRE WAS THIS

WEEKEND.

THIS IS WHERE THE SHOOTER WAS

LIVING FROM THE EL PASO MEXICO.

ALLEN, TEXAS, IS WHERE THE GUY

STARTED HIS ROAD TRIP TO THAT

WALMART IF 2019 WHERE HE SHOT

AND KILLED 23 PEOPLE.

ALMOST ALL OF WHOM WERE LATINO.

THE KILLER THERE RANTING THAT HE

DID IT BECAUSE OF THE GREAT

REPLACEMENT THEORY POPULARIZED

ON THE FOX NEWS CHANNEL IN PRIME

TIME.

NOW TODAY, IN ALLEN, TEXAS,

WE'RE LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE

APPARENT MOTIVE IN KILLING ALL

THESE PEOPLE THIS WEEKEND.

IT IS NOT A SUBTLE THING.

THE GUNMAN IS BELIEVED TO HAVE

RECENTLY POSTED THIS PHOTO

ONLINE.

THIS PICTURE AND OTHERS LIKE IT

APPEAR TO BE HIM.

APPEAR TO BE PICTURES OF HIMSELF

FROM A COUPLE WEEKS AGO.

YOU SEE SOME OF HIS NICE FRESH

TATTOOS THERE.

NBC ALSO REPORTS THAT HE HAD A

LONG SOCIAL MEDIA ONLINE THAT

INCLUDED RANTS AGAINST JEWS,

AGAINST WOMEN, AGAINST RACIAL

MINORITIES.

NBC NEWS ALSO REPORTING THAT HE

POSTED A BUNCH OF STUFF ONLINE

FROM WHITE SUPREMACIST

INFLUENCERS, INCLUDING THE ONE

RECENTLY WHO WAS INVITED TO

MAR-A-LAGO TO DINE WITH THE

FORMER PRESIDENT AT HIS SOUTH

FLORIDA HOME.

THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS THAT THE

GUNMAN FROM ALLEN, TEXAS THIS

WEEKEND, HE HAD A PATCH THAT WAS

VELCROED ON TO THE TACTICAL

GUEST HE WAS WEARING WHILE HE

CARRIED OUT THE SHOOTING.

IT HAD THE INITIALS RWDS ON IT.

IT LOOKS LIKE THIS ONE.

THERE IS A PATCH OF A SIMILAR

KIND SHOWN ON THE TACTICAL VEST

THAT WAS THE LEADER OF THE PROUD

BOYS.

THE RIGHT WING PARAMILITARY

GROUP.

UNTIL NOT LONG AGO, THEY HAD A

SHOWS FORCE IN THE STREETS.

INCLUDING IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

RIGHT BEFORE JANUARY 6th.

FOUR LEADERS OF THE PROUD BOYS,

THE PRO TRUMP PARAMILITARY

GROUP, WERE OF COURSE, CONVICTED

OF SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY AT THE

END OF LAST WEEK FOR THEIR ROLES

IN THE JANUARY 6th ATTACK ON

CONGRESS.

ONE OF THOSE PROUD BOYS

DEFENDANTS WHO WAS JUST COULD

NOT VIKTSD OF SEDITION, HE HAD

NOT JUST A PATCH OF THE RIGHT

WING DEATH SQUAD ACRONYM LIKE

THE ALLEN, TEXAS SHOOTER HAD.

HE HAD RDWS TATTOOED ON HIS ARM.

WHICH YOU CAN SEE HERE.

TODAY, ALSO, IN FEDERAL COURT IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., WE GOT A

FAIRLY HEAVY SENTENCE HANDED

DOWN AGAINST YET ANOTHER

PARTICIPANT IN THE JANUARY 6th

ATTACK.

HE IS A PETTY OFFICER FIRST

CLASS IN THE NAVY.

HE REPORTEDLY CARRIED TOP SECRET

AND COMPARTMENTED INFORMATION

SECURITY CLEARANCES.

HE WAS ALREADY CONVICTED AND

SENTENCED TO THREE YEARS IN

PRISON ON CHARGES RELATED TO HIM

POSSESSING ILLEGAL WEAPONS,

UNREGISTERED SILENCERS.

THAT WAS A FEW MONTHS AGO.

TODAY HE GOT AN ADDITIONAL FOUR

YEARS ON HIS SENTENCE FOR HIS

PARTICIPATION IN THE JANUARY 6th

ATTACK.

IN THE FBI AFFIDAVIT, GO THAT

PROSECUTOR SUBMITTED TO THE

COURT IN SUPPORT OF THE CASE THE

AFFIDAVIT SPELLS OUT WITH THE

FBI CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANTS, HIS

KOERGS AND OTHERS.

HIM SPELLING OUT AND EXPLAINING

TO PEOPLE WHY HE WAS AT THE

CAPITOL ON JANUARY 6th WITH, HE

SAYS, THE PROUD BOYS.

THAT AFFIDAVIT EXPLAINS THIS

MAN'S VERY CLEAR WORLD VIEW FOR

WHAT EXACTLY HE WAS DOING THERE

THAT DAY.

WHAT HE THOUGHT HE WAS THERE TO

ACCOMPLISH.

THIS IS FROM THE FBI AFFIDAVIT.

QUOTE, HE STORMED THE CAPITOL ON

JANUARY 6th, 2021, TO DISRUPT

THE PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER

TO PRESIDENT BIDEN WHOM HE

BELIEVED ROSE THROUGH ELECTION

FRAUD AND WAS, QUOTE, OPERATED

BY THE JEWS.

HE WAS WILLING TO ACT CORRUPTLY

TO ACHIEVE HIS GOAL AND STOP THE

CERTIFICATION BECAUSE HE FELT SO

PASSIONATELY THAT HE NEEDED TO

DEFEND THE UNITED STATES AGAINST

THE COUNTRY'S JEWS.

HE DID NOT WANT THE PERSON HE

SAW AS A PUPPET OF THE JEWS TO

TAKE POWER.

HE ALSO THOUGHT THAT MORE

VIOLENCE WAS NEEDED ON JANUARY

6th TO PRESSURE CONGRESS TO STOP

THE CERTIFICATION.

BUT THAT VIOLENCE DID NOT

MATERIALIZE BECAUSE JEWS HAD

LULLED AMERICANS INTO SUPPORT

FOR NONVIOLENCE.

HIS DEEPLY HELD ANTISEMITISM WAS

A CORE PART OF HIS MEMORANDUM.

STANDING UP AGAINST THE JEWS.

THAT'S ALL TODAY.

THAT'S ALL THIS WEEK.

THAT'S ALL AT ONCE.

OF COURSE, ALL THIS IS HAPPENING

WHILE WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE TRIAL OF THE WHITE-POWER

GREAT REPLACEMENT THEORY MASS

MURDERER FROM THE TREE OF LIFE

SYNAGOGUE.

IN PITTSBURGH.

THAT TRIAL IS ONGOING RIGHT NOW.

AND OF COURSE, ALL OF THESE

THINGS HAVE THE SAME SMELL,

RIGHT?

THEY DON'T JUST HAPPEN TO BE

CONNECTED IN THE NEWS.

THEY'RE CONNECTED.

THE BUFFALO WHITE SUPREMACIST

MASS MURDER, EL PASO WHITE

SUPREMACIST MASS MURDER, THE

PITTSBURGH WHITE SUPREMACIST

MASS MURDER.

NOW IT APPEARS THE ALLEN, TEXAS

WHITE SUPREMACIST MASS MURDER.

IN A NATION RECOILING AND

ASHAMED AND DISGUSTED, THERE IS

ALSO THESE APPARENT CONNECTIONS,

RIGHT?

BETWEEN THESE BLEEDING, RAGGED

RIGHT WING MASS VIOLENCE AND THE

BLEEDING RAGGED WHITE WING EDGE

OF POLITICS.

THE MOST MAIN STREAM POSSIBLE

ELECTORAL REPUBLICAN POLITICS.

THE MOST MAIN STREAM, MOST

SUCCESSFUL RIGHT WING MEDIA AS

WELL.

BUT ALSO, THIS FORMER PRESIDENT

AND HIS FAMILY AND HIS FORMER

OFFICIALS, AND THE WAY HE IS

CURRENTLY RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT

AGAIN.

THEY'RE INVITING LITERAL HITLER

WAS RIGHT OUTSPOKEN ANTI-SEMITES

PUTTING STARS OF DAVID, JEWISH

STARS ON THE HEADS OF THEIR

ENEMIES TELLING PEOPLE, THAT'S

WHO WE NEED TO BE GOING AFTER.

THEY'RE INVITING PEOPLE LIKE

THAT TO THEIR EVENTS WITH THE

HIGHEST MEMBERS OF THEIR

GOVERNMENT AND IT IS ALL

HAPPENING WHILE THAT PERSON IS

RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT AGAIN.

AND IT IS HAPPENING AMID THIS

UNRELENTING WAVE OF WHITE

SUPREMACIST MOTIVATED MASS

MURDER.

ARE THOSE TWO THINGS SEPARATE?

ARE THOSE TWO THINGS JUST VERY

DISTURBING PARALLEL TRACKS THAT

WILL NEVER MEAT AND THAT HAVE

NEVER MET?

OR IS ONE OF THESE AN ANCHOR FOR

THE OTHER?

DOES THE FACT THAT BOTH OF THESE

ARE HAPPENING AT ONCE IN OUR

COUNTRY FRANKLY ACCELERATE THEM

BOTH?

ACCELERATE THE RACIAL RADICALISM

AND ANTISEMITISM AS A POLITICAL

TOOL, AND ALSO, JUST ACCELERATE

THE VIOLENCE IN THE STREETS.

DO THEY WORK TOGETHER, AND IF

SO, HOW?

IF THEY DO WORK TOGETHER, HOW DO

WE STOP IT?

JOINING US NOW IS SOMEONE WHO

HAS DEVOTED HER PROFESSIONAL

CAREER TO THE STUDY OF THIS

PROBLEM.

SHE IS ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF

NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY, AUTHOR

OF THE SEMINOLE BOOK.

BRING THE WAR HOME.

PROFESSOR, I REALLY APPRECIATE

YOU TAKING TIME TO BE BACK WITH

US TONIGHT.

>> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

>> SO YOU CAN PROBABLY TELL

RIGHT THERE FROM THAT WIND-UP

THAT I AM DISTURBED, I AM

UNNERVED AT LEAST, BY THESE TWO

PARALLEL TRACKS, BY WHAT WE SEE

HAPPENING WITH INCREDIBLE RACIAL

AND ANTISEMITIC RADICALISM,

ADJACENT TO POLITICS AND THE

KIND OF MASS VIOLENCE WE'RE

SEEING.

AS AN EXPERT AND SOMEONE WHO

STUDIES THESE MATTERS, DO WE SEE

THEM AS PARALLEL OR DO THEY

INTERCEPT?

>> I DON'T THINK WE CAN SEE

THEY'RE ADJACENT.

I THINK AT LEAST THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY IN SO FAR AS IT IS

REPRESENTED BY DONALD TRUMP HAS

FULLY EMBRACED THESE ELEMENTS.

THE FACT THAT THIS SPEECH IS NOT

ONLY SORT OF WAVED THROUGH WITH

A WINK AND A KNOTNOD BUT THEY AR

INVITED IN.

WE CAN SEE WITH NICK FUENTES TO

DINNER AT MAR-A-LAGO.

THE MAIN WELCOME OF THE

CANDIDATE.

AND THE ONE THAT WAS THE MOST

CONCERNING FOR ME AS SOMEONE WHO

STUDIES THIS KIND OF VIOLENCE

WAS THE STAGING OF AND THE

CONTENT OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE

ANNOUNCING THE KICKOFF OF THIS

CAMPAIGN IN WACO, TEXAS.

MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THE

BRANCH DAVIDIAN SIEGE IN WACO AS

PART OF A GOVERNMENT

INSENSIBILITY.

TO PEOPLE ON THE FAR RIGHT, TO

PEOPLE IN NEO-NAZI GROUP,

MILITANT RIGHT GROUPS, IT IS A

CALL DIRECTLY TO THE CHAIN OF

EVENTS THAT LEADS TO THE

OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING.

A MAJOR ACT OF MASS CASUALTY

DOMESTIC TERRORISM.

IT IS A DIRECT CALL TO THAT KIND

OF VIOLENCE.

IT IS NOT JUT ABOUT SPEECH.

IT IS DIRECT AND BLOODY AND IT

HAS REAL TOLLS LIKE WE SEE IN

ALLEN AND BUFFALO AND
