Trump’s decision to promote anti-Muslim videos by Britain First, an extreme far-right group, confirms what was abundantly clear after Chartlottesville
It was true after the racist mob in Charlottesville three months ago. And it’s still true today: Donald J Trump quite literally sympathizes with fascists.
He shares their worldview as easily as he shares their language and videos. He gives their voice and values the biggest platform in politics. He is a neo-fascist sympathizer in the mainstream of American politics, sitting at the heart of the West Wing and world power.
But don’t take my word for it. Listen to Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of the far-right Britain First group.
After President Trump shared three of Fransen’s anti-Muslim videos on Twitter on Wednesday morning, the extremist agitator could barely contain herself: “THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DONALD TRUMP, HAS RETWEETED THREE OF DEPUTY LEADER JAYDA FRANSEN’S TWITTER VIDEOS! DONALD TRUMP HIMSELF HAS RETWEETED THESE VIDEOS AND HAS AROUND 44 MILLION FOLLOWERS! GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP!”

You know it’s a big deal with the fascists can’t stop tweeting in ALL CAPS.
Now it doesn’t take much to learn about Fransen and Britain First. With the help of a wonderful website called Google, Trump could have discovered in milliseconds that Fransen was convicted and fined last year for religious harassment after she hurled abuse at a Muslim woman in front of her young children.
At the time, Fransen was on what she calls a “Christian patrol” when she accosted the young British mother and told her that Muslim men were trying to rape women across Europe.
Just last week Fransen was arrested for a speech she delivered in Belfast only a week before the Charlottesville mob tried to terrorize us with their tiki torches.
“Britain First” were the last words shouted by the murderer of the British MP Jo Cox, before he brutally killed the rising political star, one week before the Brexit vote.
