Republican Party’s Racism Problem Predates President Donald Trump | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


TONIGHT. HAPPY TO HAVE YOU WITH US. IN TERMS OF SCANDAL AND POTENTIAL CRIMINAL LIABILITY EVEN, THE REAL EXISTENTIAL CRISIS IS THE RUSSIA CRISIS. THE MANAGEMENT HANDLING OF THAT CRISIS AND THE WHITE HOUSE HAS BEEN AN UNUSUAL SPECTACLE TO REPORT ON. THE FRA FRENETIC PACE OF THE TURNOVER OF WHITE HOUSE SENIOR STAFF, THE COLORFUL AND PROFANE CAST OF CHARACTERS WHO THE PRESIDENT HAS BROUGHT IN, VARIOUS LAWYERS ON THE ISSUE. IT’S BEEN WEIRD AND ASTONISHING TO WATCH IN TERMS OF THE WAY THIS WHITE HOUSE HAS HANDLED THIS SCANDAL AND ITS FALLOUT ALREADY. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE MORE IMPORTANT QUESTION, THE BOTTOM LINE QUESTION, WHEN IT COMES TO HOW THE COUNTRY IS GOING TO DETERMINE THE WAY THIS SCANDAL WILL END, HOW THE CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE WILLS CONDUCT AND CONCLUDE THEIR INVESTIGATIONS, HOW CONGRESS WILL REACT TO ITS OWN INVESTIGATIONS, AS WELL AS TO WHATEVER WE EVENTUALLY LEARN FROM THE SPECIAL COUNSEL INVESTIGATION AT THE FBI, THAT ULTIMATE RESPONSE WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR THE COUNTRY, THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE DETERMINED BY WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE DOES. AND IT’S NOT GOING TONG DETERMINED BY WHAT THE PRESS DOES. IT WILL BE DETERMINED IN A GRANULAR SENSE LARGELY BY REPUBLICANS. ESPECIALLY IF IT HAPPENS SOON WHILE REPUBLICANS STILL CONTROL CONGRESS. IF YOU THINK THERE ARE EVENTUALLY GOING TO BE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS, IF YOU THINK THE CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATIONS ARE GOING TO BE CONSEQUENTIAL AND THEIR FINDINGS ARE GOING TO BE KNOWN. ALL OF THAT STUFF WILL BE DECIDE BID THE PEOPLE WHO RUN CONGRESS. AND AT LEAST UNTIL THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS TWHAB’S CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS. AND THAT FACT, THE FACT THAT AT LEAST, YOU KNOW, UNTIL JANUARY AFTER THE NEXT MIDTERMS, THE FATE OF THIS PRESIDENCY IS IN THE HANDS OF CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS, THAT, IF NOTHING ELSE, MAKES THE STRAIN BETWEEN THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE ELECTED REPUBLICANS NOT JUST HUMAN DRAMA IN WASHINGTON. IT MAKES IT POTENTIALLY A EXISTENTIAL MATTER FOR THIS PRESIDENCY. AND OF ALL OF THE THINGS THAT HAVE DRIVEN THIS STRAIN BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND THE ELECTED REPUBLICANS, THE MOST INTERESTING DYNAMIC, THE MOST PERSISTENT AND DIFFICULT PROBLEM FOR THAT RELATIONSHIP HAS TURNED OUT TO BE THE PRESIDENT’S EXPRESSION OF SYMPATHY WITH THE GRIEVANCES OF WHIES SUPREMACISTS AND NEO-NAZIS WHO GATHERED FOR A RALLY AND RIOT IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA. THE PRESIDENT HAS SYMPATHY WITH THEIR GROOENSS AND SOLIDARITY OTHER THEIR AFFECTION FOR THE CONFEDERACY. THAT REALLY HAS BEEN A PROBLEM. REPORTEDLY IT HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FOR SOME SENIOR WHITE HOUSE STAFF WORKING FOR THIS PRESIDENT, ALTHOUGH YOU CAN TAKE THAT AS FAR AS YOU CAN THROW IT SINCE NONE OF THEM HAVE ACTUALLY RESIGNED FROM THE WHITE HOUSE OR THREATENED TO RESIGN IN RESPONSE TO THE PRESIDENT’S REMARKS. BUT CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS TOO HAVE DESCRIBED THIS MOMENT, THIS PROBLEM THEIR DISCOMFORT WITH WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID, THEY’VE DESCRIBED THIS AS SOMETHING THAT BOTHERED THEM. SOMETHING THAT MADE THEM FEEL THIS PRESIDENCY, MAYBE THEY’RE NOT GOING TO GO TO BAT TO KEEP IT GOING, IF IT COMES RIGHT DOWN TO IT. IT’S INTERESTING HOW MUCH OF A PROBLEM THIS HAS BEEN, NOT JUST IF ARE THE PRESIDENT’S STANDING NOT JUST OUR SOUL AS A NATION BUT SPECIFICALLY HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHER REPUBLICANS. HERE’S WHAT MAKES THAT SUPPOSED REVULSION ON THE PART OF OTHER REPUBLICANS. THOSE COMMENTS FROM THE PRESIDENT BEING A SUPPOSED BREAKING POINT. HERE’S WHAT MAKES THAT MOES A SHAKES PEERIAN DRAMA. AT LEAST A CROCK DEPENDING ON HOW YOU LOOK AT IT. WHITE STREM CYSTS DID NOT BRAND THEM AS THE ALT RIGHT BECAUSE DONALD TRUMP WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT. THE HITLER LET’S MAKE A WHITE HOMELAND OF AMERICA EXTREMISM, IT DIDN’T SPRING OUT OF THE TOILET THAT IT LIVES IN BECAUSE THIS GUY ELECTED. THE WHITE SUPREMACIST NIGHTMARE EDGE REBRANDED THEMSELVESs AS THE ALT-RIGHT YEARS AGO AND I RE-UP FOR DISCUSSION THE FACT THAT WELL BEFORE THIS PRESIDENT MOVED ON FROM REALITY TV, I WAS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IN CONGRESS, BEFORE TRUMP, THAT STARTED TO INSINUATE THESE GUYS INTO OTHERWISE MAINSTREAM REPUBLICAN POLITICS. DON’T BELIEVE ME? WATCH THIS. THIS IS WHAT WE DID AT THE TIME.>>BUT WE HAVE TO START TONIGHT IN MONTANA AT THE HEADQUARTERS OF AN ORGANIZATION THAT LIKE TO THINK OF ITSELF AS AMERICA’S THINK TANK FOR THE WHITE NATIONALIST MOVEMENT. THEY DON’T LIKE TO SAME WHITE SUPREMACIST. THEY LIKE TO SAY WHITE NATIONALIST. THEY THINK IT STANDS BETTER. YOU CAN JUDGE FOR YOURSELF.>>WHO STANDS FOR US. HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY ISN’T THERE AN ORGANIZATION THAT WORKS FOR US. FROM AFRICAN-AMERICAN TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, FROM LESBIANS TO LEFT-HANDERS, EVERY ETHNIC AND INTEREST GROUP HAS ITS OWN LOBBY OR CULTURAL FOUNDATION. THE EXCEPTION, OF COURSE, THE WHITE AMERICANS.>>THIS IS THE WHITE SUPREMACIST — SORRY, THE WHITE NATIONALIST THINK TANK GROUP. THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE WHITE NATIONAL POLICY INSTITUTE. THEIR SLOGAN, FOR OUR PEOPLE, OUR CULTURE, OUR FUTURE. WHEN THEY SAY OUR THEY’RE REALLY SPECIFIC ABOUT WHO THEY MEAN.>>AS LONG AS WHITES CONTINUE TO AVOID AND DENY THEIR OWN RACIAL IDENTITY AT A TIME WHENEVER OTHER RACIAL AND ETHNIC CATEGORY IS REASSERTING ITS OWN, WHITES HAVE NO CHANCE. THIS IS OUR CHALLENGE, THIS IS OUR CALLING. WON’T YOU JOIN US.>>SO IF YOU POKE AROUND ON THE WEBSITE OF THE WHITE NATIONALIST THINK TANK, YOU CAN SEE HOW THEY’RE TRYING TO UPDATE THE RACIST IMAGE. SOME ARE STILL SKIN HEAD GUYS BUT THEY WEAR SUITS AND SOME OF THEM HAVE HAIR. THIS IS AN OLD SCHOOL KIND OF THING WANT NO BININNER BREED. IT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU THINK IT WITH IMPROVED HAIRCUTS. IF YOU DIG INTO THE FINE PRINT IN THEIR ONLINE WEB PRESENCE, THEY’RE NOT JUST AN ONLINE GROUP THAT THEY HOLD PHYSICAL CONFERENCES AND EVENTS. THEY MAINTAIN A P.O. BOX IN WHITEFISH, MONTANA. THAT’S THE EXACT SAME P.O. BOX FOR THIS ONLINE RACIST FORUM. AND I AWE A BUNCH OF LINKS TO THIS TODAY BUT NO, IT’S ALL STILL THERE. IT’S CALLED THE ALTERNATIVE RIGHT. AND IT’S AN ONLINE RACIST FORUM. IT DESCRIBES ITSELF AS BEING FOUNDED BY THE WON’T YOU JOIN US WHITE POWER GUY YOU JUST SAW IN THE THINK TANK VIDEO. THIS IS THEIR POST ON HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DWA DAY. THEY CALL IT HOLOCAUST AMNESIA DAY. AND USHD THE PICTURE IT SAYS, I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S CREPT UP ON ME TODAY. TODAY I DISCOVER THAT TODAY IS HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY AND I’M FRESH OUT OF ONIONS. THE AUTHOR GOES ON TO DESCRIBE HIS MIXED FEELINGS OF COMMEMORATING A HISTORIC EVENT AND HE GOES TO SAY WE LEAVE ASIDE FOR THE MOMENT WHETHER THIS WHOLE HOLOCAUST THING ACTUALLY HAPPENED. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL. THIS IS ALTERNATIVE-RIGHT WHICH LIVES IN THE SAME WHITEFISH, MONTANA P.O. BOX AS THE WHITE NATIONALIST THINK TANK. THIS CORNER OF THE INTERNET IS RELEVANT BECAUSE IT’S SUDDENLY FRONT AND CENTER IN SUPER MAINSTREAM AMERICAN POLITICS. THIS ARIAN NATION CROCK IS DIRECTLY LINKED TO THE LEGISLATION THAT FINALLY STARTED GETTING A MARKUP TODAY. THERE WAS A TALK THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WERE FINALLY GOING TO HELP SEE INTO LAW REFORM OF OUR NATION’S ROYALLY SKRUDS UP IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. THE WRITING WAS ON THE WALL AFTER LOSING THE PRESIDENCY AGAIN AFTER LOSING SEATS IN THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAD TO GET RIGHT WITH LATINO VOTERS AND THE WAY IT WAS GOING TO DO IT WAS BY SUPPORTING IMMIGRATION REFORM IT IS REALLY NOT CLEAR THAT ENOUGH REPUBLICANS DO SUPPORT IT THAT IT’S GOING TO PASS. JEFFERSON BE REGARD SESSIONS III INTRODUCED 49 SEPARATE AMENDMENT TO THE BILL TODAY AND THAT’S NOT BECAUSE HE’S TRYING TO HELP IT ALONG. AND THE MOST CONSERVATIVE THINK TANK IS AGAINST IT. THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION IS LEADING THE CONSERVATIVE OPERATION. AND THIS IS WHERE THE WHITE SUPREMACIST PROBLEM COMES IN. YESTERDAY IT WAS DYLAN MATTHEWS WHO LOOKED UP THE CREDENTIAL OF THE PEOPLE WHO WROTE THE ANTI-IMMIGRATION STUDY FOR HERITAGE AND THEY FOUND OUT THAT ONE OF THE COAWE AUTHORS DID HIS STUDY. I’M ONLY BARELY PARAPHRASING. THE DISSERTATION DESCRIBING LATINOS HAS AN AN IQ SUBSTANTIALLY LOWER THAN THAT OF THE WHITE NATIVE POPULATION. THEY DO NOT HAVE THE SAME COGNITIVE ABILITY AS NAY TYS. NO ONE KNOWS WHETHER HISPANICS REACH IQ PARITY WITH WHITES BUT THE PERCENTAGE OF THE LOW IQ CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN IS DIFFICULT TO ARGUE AGAINST. NOT ONLY ARE THEY INTELLECTUALLY INFERIOR TO WHITES, BUT OF COURSE, THEY BREED. IT’S DISGUSTING, RIGHT? TO BE CLEAR. THIS GUY WITH THE THESIS THAT WHITE PEOPLE ARE JUST NATURALLY SMARTER, HE ISN’T SOME TEMP THAT THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION BUMPED INTO. HE HAS A TITLED POSITION AT THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION. A SENIOR POLICY ANALYST. AND EVEN TZ THEY TRIED TO DISAVOW HIS DISSERTATION, THAT’S HIS STUDENT PAST, THAT’S THE ONE PROBLEM WITH HIM. TODAY WE LEARNED THANKS TO SOME DIGGING, THAT THIS FIE’S WHOLE RECORD OF PUBLIC OUTPUT IS THE SAME KIND OF STUFF. HERE’S ANOTHER ARTICLE FROM HIM, THIS ONE FROM MARCH TWEN, MODEL MINORITY QUESTION MARK? YOU GET THE IMPLICATION, RIGHT? HISPANICS ARE IN FACT SUBSTANTIALLY MORE LIKELY THAN WHITES TO COMMIT SERIOUS CRIMES. THESE FINDINGS ARE NOT DUE TO AGE DIFFERENCES OR IMMIGRATION VIOLATIONS OR OTHER STATISTICAL ARTIFACTS. THE REALITY OF HISPANIC CRIMES SHOULD BE ONE OF THE FACTORS THAT WE CONSIDER WHEN SETTING IMMIGRATION POLICY. THAT’S NOT FROM A DISSERTATION. THAT’S ON THE ONLINE MACHINE, SPECIFICALLY THAT’S ON THE ONLINE MACHINE AT ALTERNATIVE-RIGHT.COM WITH THE PLACE WHERE THEY’RE CUTTING UP ONIONS TO MAKE THEM FAKE CRY OVER THE HOLOCAUST. WHERE THE WHITEFISH, MONTANA POST OFFICE BOX LIVES WITH THIS GUY AND WHERE THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION AUTHOR OF THE IMMIGRATION STUDY IS EXPANDING ON THESE BROWN PEOPLE WHO WE REALLY OUGHT TO CONSIDER KEEPING OUT OF THE COUNT FRIDAY. AND WHEN THE HERITAGE TOWN DATHS WAS CONSIDERING HIRING HIM, HIS MOST RECENT PUBLIC OUTPUT, THE THING HE WAS GOING ONLINE THE MONTH BEFORE HERITAGE HIRED HIM WAS WRITING ABOUT THE RACIAL INFERIORITY AND CRIMINALITY OF LATINOS AS A GROUP. AND THIS IS THE WORLD WHERE THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION WENT TO, TO FIND AN AUTHOR FOR THEIR STUDY OF IMMIGRATION REFORM. THEIR STUDY CONCLUDES THAT IT’S A TERRIBLE IDEA TO REFORM IMMIGRATION BECAUSE THESE IMMIGRANTS, AND YOU KNOW WHO REMEAN, THESE IMMIGRANTS AND THEIR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN, EVERYBODY IN THEIR BLOOD LINE, THAT ARE LOI ACHIEVING PARRA SITES WHO WILL NEED ON THE NATIVE BORN POPULATION AND THAT WILL BE EXPE EXPENSIVE. AND WE LEARNED ALL OF THIS TODAY ABOUT THE CHARACTER. WE LEARNED WHO THE LEADING THE IMMIGRATION REFORM ON THE DAY IT FINALLY GETS INTRODUCED TO THE SENATE.>>THAT WAS OUR COVERAGE IN MAY 2013 OF THE LOND STANDING WHITE SUPREMACIST MOVEMENT IN THIS COUNTRY WE BRANDING ITSELF AS THE ALT-RIGHT AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S WILLINGNESS TO DANCE WITH THEM FOR POLITICAL DIFFERENCES EVEN THEN. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S KIND REMARKS ABOUT THE WHITE SUPREMACISTS AMONG US MAY MAKE REPUBLICANS PROCLAIM THEIR DISCOMFORT. BUT IS THERE’S A RECENT PAST FOR THE REPUBLICAN TO RECKON WITH. A RECENT PAST OF REPUBLICANS AND THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION REALLY OPENING THE DOOR TO THOSE GROUPS BEFORE DONALD TRUMP WAS EVEN KNOWN TO BE A REPUBLICAN, LET ALONE A REPUBLICAN POLITICIAN. I SHOULD ALSO TELL YOU THAT REPORT, THAT HISPANIC OR PARRA SITES REPORT IS PROUDLY
