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

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.

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.

KKK guy gets 6 years in jail for driving through BLM protestors. [yahoo news]


Quote:
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Virginia man who a prosecutor described as a leader of the Ku Klux Klan and who drove through a Black Lives Matter protest in June was sentenced Monday to six years in jail.

Harry H. Rogers, 36, was convicted of six misdemeanors and sentenced to a year in jail for each charge, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. Rogers still faces three felony charges of attempted malicious wounding in connection with the June 7 incident.

Two people who were struck by Rogers testified. A third victim was only identified at John Doe. The prosecution played Facebook Live video captured after the incident in which Rogers boasts of driving through the crowd.

3 years ago today anti-racist protester Heather Heyer was murdered by a white nationalist at the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville. Several others were severely wounded in the same attack.

The lawsuit against the organizers drags on. Richard Spencer's lawyer is trying to withdraw from the case for lack of payment. All indications are that this lawsuit has been financially crippling for the defendants. Numerous attempts have been made by several of the defendants to not provide evidence during discovery, and there's good reason to speculate that extremely damning evidence showing culpability for violence will eventually be outed. Some have been forced to pay fines for the delays, one defendant was briefly jailed for contempt.

A summary of the case's history available here:

Andrew Richard Casarez, 27, had his 9 mm pistol taken away from him two weeks ago after an anonymous group outed him as a white supremacist, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office said.

...

Casarez is known as the leader of the online group "Bowl Patrol," named after domestic terrorist Dylann Roof, who donned a bowl cut haircut when he killed nine people at a church prayer meeting in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015. The sheriff's office described the online group as one "that endorses violence against minorities."

Mackey, under the anonymity of his alias, has previously bragged about vandalizing a synagogue, in which there is surveillance footage.

Pro-Trump supporter who shot paintballs into downtown Portland crowd is sued for $250,000

https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2020...source=twitter

Alan Swinney, who was captured on multiple videos assaulting multiple protesters and brandishing a firearm, has been sued by a woman injured by paintballs fired by Swinney. Alan Swinney is a member of the Proud Boy fascist street gang and regularly travels around the country looking to cause violence at protest events. He lives in Texas.

It remains unclear why Swinney has not been arrested for obvious and well documented violent crimes, other than Portland PD doesn't seem interested in policing right wing violence.

Demoted master sergeant with white nationalist ties is now out of the Air Force

Quote:
Technical Sgt. Cory Reeves, a Colorado airman who was found to have ties to a white nationalist group and demoted from master sergeant, has been discharged from the Air Force.
https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/y...the-air-force/

Sucks to suck.

Quote:
In April 2019, a group called Colorado Springs Anti-Fascists posted photographs allegedly of Reeves wearing Identity Evropa-branded clothing and taking part in one of its protests.

Lawsuit against Unite the Right fascist rally continues to deliver woe to organizers.

Quote:
ICYMI → A key neo-Nazi defendant in our Charlottesville lawsuit is headed to jail.

Robert “Azzmador” Ray was found in contempt of court and a bench warrant will be issued for his arrest after he violated court orders and failed to appear for 3 depositions.
https://twitter.com/IntegrityforUSA/...62889221718016

Another defendant headed to jail for failure to comply with discovery. He also has an outstanding felony warrant for using pepper spray during the rally and likely will be placed under arrest after dealing with this contempt bench-warrant.

An Atomwaffen member has pled guilty to a federal charge of intimidating journalists and "persons of color". Only good for 5 years at best, but getting a Neo-Nazi off the streets for any length of time is a win.
