Right-wingers are preparing for genocide?

The governor of Virginia has confirmed that they discovered hidden caches and stockpiles of weapons. The alt-right in Charlottesville were preparing to committ mass genocide: the protest was a distraction for what they're preparing for. We should all be scared: these guys have connections to neo-Nazis and right-wing extremists across Europe. The same thing was done in Rwanda right before the genocide committed there: the perpetrators hid stockpiles of machetes and weapons beforehand. Donald Trump, Brexit and Marine LePen prove that these racists and nazis feel like they've been given permission to start planning the annihilation of minorities, the LGBTQ community, the disabled and anyone else they deem inferior. Why won't people see what's coming?

You're not going to be able to commit genocide with a machete, to be realistic about this.

They managed in Rwanda.

Hi, are you ok OP? I think this sounds really unlikely. The reason I ask if you are ok is that when I have bad anxiety I sometimes fixate on stuff like this which is unlikely to happen

Yes, link needed - if I recall, this was debunked on the Trump thread a couple of days ago.

If you mean the assortment of battle re-enactment types who turned up in Virginia with their home-made torches and dressing-up box robes – no, I don’t think they are going to be committing genocide any time soon.

They don’t have the numbers, the weapons or indeed the sheer bulk of surgical support stockings they’d need to be combat-ready. They might take out a wasps’ nest or two on their way home I suppose.

fake there was also an army stuffed with conventional weapons behind the genocide in Rwanda.

Whose side do you think the US army would be on? Their leaders have already condemned Charlottesville.

Mineshalfamilkstout Thu 17-Aug-17 22:57:36

USA is not Rwanda.

PigletWasPoohsFriend Thu 17-Aug-17 23:00:27

Where is the proof of this exactly?

coconuttella Thu 17-Aug-17 23:03:39

They managed in Rwanda.

Tens of thousands of machetes wielded by tens of thousands supported by the army....

What?

The USA and U.K. Have an excellent Army and police force. I doubt very much genocide can be commuted in these countries.

I don't think that there is anything to worry about just yet.

We all need to be prepared for when it does go down though,

maxthemartian Thu 17-Aug-17 23:13:21

I don't think a mass genocide like Rwanda is likely or imminent.
Sadly I do think we are going to see plenty more attacks from extremists of both the Islamic and right wing fascist stripes.

roarityroar Thu 17-Aug-17 23:17:39

I'm worried about various types of terrorism. None of it is "right wing"

TheFaerieQueene Thu 17-Aug-17 23:19:30

Marine LePen was defeated.

Look at the calibre of insurgent they are.
One of them was shovelling and crying on tv when he got fired! Didn't mean it apparently.
They are fantasy land dress up guys who have spent too long on the internet and watching big manly man films.
They are capable of violence, sure, but not a sustained campaign that involves them getting uncomfortable.

UterusUterusGhali Thu 17-Aug-17 23:46:52

They marched openly with weapons in Charlottesville. They look like they're forming a malitia.
They look like their testing the waters. Let's face it, cops will shoot a black child carrying a toy gun but allowed this. I don't think the authorities are that bothered at all if they start killing people in the streets

noblegiraffe Thu 17-Aug-17 23:56:20

The cops had to allow it, Virginia is an open carry state. There were people on the opposite side carrying guns too.

Well I voted for Brexit and Conservative in the last GE, so I suppose I would be designated as Right Wing on here.

I have absolutely no desire, plan, or wish to kill or help to kill anyone anywhere,

(apart from Donald Trump obviously)

Biker47 Fri 18-Aug-17 09:02:18

I have tin foil hats for sale, if anyone is interested? OP?

Crumbs1 Fri 18-Aug-17 09:05:25

I'm hardly an anxious type and tend not to overreact but when you have a president that supports Nazi sympathisers we should be worried.

Cocklodger Fri 18-Aug-17 09:11:22

Look I'm as left wing as they come, but don't call it "right wing" terrorism.
Neo nazis, sure.
Right wing? Right wing is voting conservative and believing some pretty questionable stuff about healthcare and welfare cuts (this isn't the thread for it). Not wanting to murder Muslims!!!
