Really?



Why couldn't they sell it buy beer and guns? Or use it for target practice?







That's what white supremacists are... over the top (and cliche, and tropey, and ignorant, and stupid)







A fool and his money......

And I'm not sure what ever gave you the impression that "white power" as a racist slogan was antiquated or out of use; white supremacists still commonly use slogans from the 1930's. In the original German, sometimes, even.
Just revisiting this to point out that two days ago the president of the United States posted a video on Twitter of his supporters, one of whom yelled "white power" just after the beginning of the video.

If the question was whether real white supremacists were using that term I don't understand why you've used a still from a film?

They do regardless, as Checkmite pointed out, but you know, never mind. You were right, I should have spent an extra few seconds and picked a better example.

Congratulations, you win the interwebz

I tried to make light about your innocent mistake and got a snarky roll eyes reply for my trouble. Think about that for me will you

7 men from Washington state were arrested in Oregon after complaints that they were harassing a black family with racial slurs and Nazi salutes. When police arrived, the group were shooting off large, illegal fireworks and began trying to surround the police and goad them into a fight. More police arrived and seven of the men were taken into custody. They were hit with a slew of charges including rioting, harassment, and resisting arrest.

Grand Jury returns superseding indictment for Chris Cantwell regarding his attempted extortion of fellow fascist "Vic Mackey". Cantwell is now charged with threat to property or reputation and Cyberstalking. This is a much expected development, but court processes have been delayed by Covid-19.

https://twitter.com/lilsarg/status/1282661442286694401

"Vic Mackey", real name Andrew Richard Casarez of Orangevale, California, is a leader of the extreme right that had long been successful in keeping his real identity a secret.

Cantwell had a personal feud with the "Bowl Patrol", including Mackey. The escalation of the feud lead to Cantwell attempting to extort information and his arrest.

One of the three "boogaloo" men in Las Vegas who have been charged with using local BLM protests as cover for carrying out a terrorist attack, is now facing additional child pornography charges after authorities allegedly found images on his cell phone. The images were all of a single female child victim, whose connection to the offender is not being released, but whom police were easily able to locate and who confirmed the man had been abusing her since she was 10 years old.

Wow. Talk about terrible opsec. Planning a terrorist attack with CP on your personal cell phone.

Maybe this man has an elaborate humiliation fetish and the government is playing the unknowing dupe

Not all that surprising, though, if you think about it.

1. Someone who's vehemently opposed to the government telling him what he can and can't do, to the point where he's willing to go get himself arrested or possibly killed while doing a terror attack... well, you might suspect that he does have something specific in mind that the government shouldn't be able to tell him not to do.

and

2. Nobody ever accused these chucklenuts of being TOO smart.
