The major purveyors of this virulent filth especially on YouTube are the same ones who committed the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church.murder that Sunday in 1963, the Klu Klux Klan.
The majority of the "White Extremist" hate on the Internet stems from David Ernest Duke, born July 1, 1950. He is an American "White nationalist", writer, right-wing politician, and a former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Many of the narrations on some of the most far fetched and outlandish hateful, froth filled and venomous filth was completed by a William Luther Pierce III. Pierce was a prominent anti-Semite, anti-Zionist and American (read Aryan) white nationalist (supremacist) an associate of George Lincoln Rockwell, founder of the American Nazi Party.
Dukes has aligned himself with every venue of hatred of Jews and Zionism from Iran, the Palestinians and Hezbollah. He is one of the chief sources of rabid anti-Semitism on the World Wide Web. I have tried my best to "Flag" the videos and to report the "channels" to some success but YouTube is lax in their attempts to abide by the code to prevent "Hate Speech" as set forth by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR's) definition of hate speech. It states: "Any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law". And the reasoning behind this is that the US Supreme Court in 1969 ruled in Brandenburg v. Ohio "that hate speech is permissible unless it will lead to imminent hate violence."
If anything should be outlawed and banned it should be the spreading of YouTube videos of abject and utter racial hatred narrated by William Luther Pierce or David Duke’s through the use of social media on the Internet to influence young naive Americans and even Europeans.
All of my personal efforts to remove his films has had some partial success but these websites of utter hatred are constantly rebooted to other channels on YouTube and Facebook. In many cases they are linked to websites associated with the "Pro-Falestinians" and their trolls who use those unknowing of historical truth to spread their lies and utterly despicable gross misinterpretations of history.
In the 1950s as the civil rights movement gained momentum local white supremacists led by members of the KKK reacted fiercely and violently. During this period Birmingham was known as “Bombingham” because of the numerous bombs set off at black churches and at homes of black activists — and attacks against whites who sought to upset the status quo.
Caught in the middle of all this was the relatively small Jewish community, which endured harsh anti-Semitic rhetoric by the Klan and white supremacists.
A Call For Unity” and An Appeal for Law and Order and Common Sense I also remember Reverend King’s replies in his famous Letter from Birmingham Jail
- That hatred and violence have no sanction in our religious and political traditions.
- That no person's freedom is safe unless every person's freedom is equally protected
"You cannot yield to terror and violence….If you yield once you yield a second time [and] you yield a third time. And then there is nothing more to yield…you have already been captured."“I’m just sick at heart as you are about what’s happened in our city. I have been sick about it for years. Anybody with a shred of humanity in him could not have been but horrified by what happened Saturday or Sunday.”"And I’m sick at heart for a lot of other reasons. I’m sick at heart because of the attitude not of the people who either by direction or indirection were responsible for the death of those children…I’m sick at heart because of what the so-called nice people…the liberals … that sneer at everything that happens put the blame upon everyone but themselves. I am sick at heart (at) their attitude also. I am sick of and tired of finger pointing. I am weary of reasons and rationalizations. And I am weary of people congregating in their homes and their places of business over their coffee, wherever they may be…I answer to my conscience. You’ll have to answer to yours.”
“And let me say these people are primarily anti-Semitic and this is where you have got a stake. Because let me tell you, if they get away with this, nobody’s going to be safe and the first ones that will not be safe, will be the members of the Jewish community…”
He never was more right than what he stated here.
I was recently made aware of an excellent article in the Southern Jewish life Magazine with an indepth and comprehensive background of that sad period in American history, the letter by Martin Luther King and the harsh unjust criticism of Rabbi Grafman's response at that time. Specifically from those who did not know the whole truth and background of the whole affair. Rabbi Grafman was a giant among humanitarians and few know of his works and efforts on the part of the community.
