    By focusing entirely on Muslim groups, White Supremacist groups and other domestic terrorist elements (overwhelming consisting of White males) would be conveniently de-emphasized.


    What that has to do about bomb threats to Jewish community centers, I have no idea.

    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    The JCC in St Louis has both an adult day care and a children's preschool. Can you imagine trying to evacuate a bunch of preschool aged kids and senior citizens with Alzheimer's and who use walkers and canes? And all of them outside into the cold.

    There were swastikas painted at Stanford this week and it was all over the news. Second time this month.

    When there were swastikas at Stanford in early 2015, those barely made the local papers. Those were love swastikas.

    By having a president who is basically a White Supremacist himself, it adds a certain legitimacy to the whole mindset and emboldens those who want to put their evil thoughts into action.

    The real effect is going to be seen in all of the legalized discrimination that is going to result from these so-called "religious freedom" laws that red states are beginning to enact. The result will be "institutionalized discrimination", which is the hardest form to fight because it is "legal" and not the result of lawless acts.

    Kids using throwaway voip numbers have been prank SWATing people for a while now.

    This is probably connected to some 4chan group or some other site where people who like to see pranks go viral

    Which is why I'm ambivalent about wide spread publicity. JCC's and other Jewish institutions usually have security measures in place so that people can't just walk in. Most JCCs have pre-schools, so it's taken seriously.

    A lot of things can be said about Donald Trump, but a white supremacist? Nah.
