Andrew Anglin, founder of the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer, was watching the first presidential debate on Tuesday evening, and he believes that President Donald Trump’s remarks in which he urged the right-wing extremist group Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” was a call to arms, and he says his group is ready for “war.”
In an editorial he posted Wednesday, Anglin writes:
“At one point, Trump was asked to disavow white supremacists, and he said that he’d be happy to, but he doesn’t know who they are. I also don’t know who they are. Even if you accept that the people at Charlottesville were ‘white supremacists,’ all of those groups are gone. They’re definitely not involved in fighting Antifa.
“Wallace asked if he would tell them to ‘stand down.’
“’I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing, not the right wing,’ Trump told Wallace. ‘I’m willing to do anything. I want to see peace … What do you want to call them? Give me a name. Give me a name?’
“’Proud Boys? Stand back and stand by.'”
But it’s Anglin’s reaction to Trump’s words that should terrify anyone who truly loves this country and the democratic republic our Founding Fathers put into place. You see, Anglin took what Trump said as a call to arms:
“He didn’t condemn anyone, and he didn’t tell them to stand down – he told them to stand back and to stand by.
“What that appears to me to indicate is ‘wait until I give the signal.’
“I got shivers. I still have shivers. He is telling the people to stand by. As in: get ready for war.”
Get ready for war. These people are ready to touch off a war in the streets so that Trump can be crowned “king,” to use Anglin’s own words. They are salivating for a dictator who will rule the United States the way Hitler ruled Germany and Stalin terrorized the former Soviet Union. They want blood to run thick in the streets so they can impose their hateful view of the world on others and slaughter anyone who disagrees.
This is the dark, fetid horror Trump has helped unleash on the nation. And it’s the most immediate reason he must be defeated in a landslide.
