Neo-Nazi pleads guilty over threats to journalists
Garza was one of four members of the Neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division charged early this year with having cyberstalked and sent Swastika-laden posters to journalists and an employee of the Anti-Defamation League, telling them, “You have been visited by your local Nazis,” “Your Actions have Consequences,” and “We are Watching.”

How “Prerequisite Cases” Tried to Define Whiteness
In these “prerequisite cases,” writes scholar John Tehranian, individuals sued to be “declared white by law after being denied citizenship rights by immigration authorities on the grounds of racial ineligibility.” Precedent could whipsaw back and forth: A Syrian, for instance, was declared white in 1909; another Syrian was declared not white in 1913; still another wasn’t white in 1914; then, in 1915, a fourth was legally found to be white.

For Irish, Italians, Spaniards, Greeks, Slavs, Arabs, and other nationalities and ethnicities, whiteness was a gray zone. According to Tehranian, this meant that prerequisite cases “had a profound impact on shaping the immigrant experience in the United States.” Since whiteness could lead to citizenship, and therefore rights, privileges, and political power, the stakes were high.

Tehranian explores how courts used different tests to define whiteness through the 1920s. There was a “scientific evidence” test, which proved itself to be not vey scientific. And there was the “common knowledge” test, simple “common sense”—which is never all that simple.

It was, for instance, “scientific” that Takao Ozawa couldn’t be included in the category “white persons” because he was not “Caucasian” (Ozawa v. U.S., 1922). But being Caucasian per se wasn’t necessarily enough to be white, either, as Bhagat Singh Thind discovered in 1923. Thind was an India-born Sikh who served in the U.S. Army during World War I; he claimed Aryan descent, meaning membership in the Caucasian race. The Supreme Court abandoned the supposedly scientific arguments it had used just a year earlier and ruled him ineligible for whiteness and therefore citizenship. It was common sense to a majority of justices that a “heathen” couldn’t be white.

Tehranian argues that after Ozawa and Thind, a new test for racial determination took hold. Whiteness became a matter of “white performance interpreted through the eyes of judges.” A petitioner could first “point to his own adoption of white values and his personal dramaturgy of whiteness as evidence of his appropriate racial categorization.” A second piece of evidence was “the assimilation of his ethnic group into the core Western European, Christian tradition as evidence of his whiteness.”

Armenians, for instance, were declared white in U.S. v. Cartozian (1925), based on several factors. Their Christianity became “a proxy for racial belonging.” An expert witness for the court personally knew of “ten or fifteen Armenians in Boston who had married American wives.” So worshiping in a Christian church and marrying white people were signifiers of being white.

Kurt: not a good idea to  create or post falsehoods when attacking the posts or positions of other people. It distracts from your point, however justified it is, and greatly reduces your trustworthiness.

Frankly, I don't know wtf you're doing lately. Maybe you're worried about the pandemic and economic crisis getting worse. Too bad Trump isn't.

People post false information all the time. Most of them actually believe it; you posted something you knew was untrue. If someone engages in honest debate a correction is welcome. When you post a deliberate lie you've sent out a signal: the truth is irrelevant here, claims are just a shot exchanged in a war of words.

Noise, not signal, injected intentionally. In the real world we do our best to filter out noise.
 
There is no intention of an honest debate when a deliberately misleading meme is deliberately posted to make a point.  All is fair in what, if any, rebuttals should come back at the poster.  There was no genuine intent for an honest debate with this meme, unless you are calling rd stupid, careless and poorly informed.  Otherwise, assuming he is smart and well informed, it can rightly be taken as purely divisive with malicious intent.  It was a stand alone post, not in response to anyone or anything, so I'll take the latter.

I don't know which part of Nikki's bio you supposedly doctored with fake news, but other news- and fact-gathering organizations besides Wikipedia report that Haley was born in South Carolina. So your fake-news insertion about Haley's birthplace seems to agree with...Oh poor Kurt...the facts.

I was paying attention. We fact check sources that are of questionable veracity, and you seem comfortable with that status.

You didn't counter fake news, you contributed to it. You don't clean the stable by adding to the pile.

WTF are you talking about ?  A nuclear war ?  And what American lives are you speaking of ?

You really seem to have it in for the Jews and fat people, too.  What do you do when you see a fat Jewish person ?
 
You are in fine shape aren't you?  You seem to have as much trouble reading as your favourite president does.

So let's see.

The kurtster supports US obesity and sitting policies because kurtster is proud of  US contemporary health outcomes and believes the C-19 pandemic is largely fake news.

kurtster supports:

- a 43% adult obesity rate, headed to 50% according to some experts
-  high rates of COPD
-  high rates of diabetes 
-  more and more dementia
-  chronic pain
-  opioid drug savers
-  the lowest green taxes on deadly, polluting fossil fuel distillates among the rich western countries
-  killing innocents for the American cheap energy entitlement.
- anthropogenic climate disruption
 
Odd remark about Jews.  I reckon that most Americans who identify as Jewish or of Jewish descent despise and deeply loath President Trump and many of his followers.    Plan on sending these Jewish Americans to a re-education camp kurtster?

The best critics of the Israeli ethnic-cleansing, nation building programme are.....  wait for it.... you already guessed....  Jewish!   This situation is somewhat similar to the US Vietnam War effort — where loyal, proud American heroes could simply not kill enough 'gooks'.   Americans individuals figured among the best critics of this ill-advised but oh so deadly war.

So let's explore your anti-Semiticism kurtster.    Do you consider Arabs to  be full fledged human beings, sub-human or on par with animals?    You sure kill enough of them.  

Do you support the Israeli kill ratios?  Do you support the Israeli settlers and among them the Hill Top Youths?  
 
You clearly believe what you believe.  I don't give a flying fuck any more.  What ever you want to say about me is true.  

Did you get a thrill typing "gooks" ?  I'll bet you would really like typing "slopes".  Go ahead, try it, you'll like it !

Have a nice day.
