Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

Also appears that social media is finally taking a strong stand over alt-right and QAnon groups.

'An update on Facebook's QAnon ban: 48 hours after the announcement was made, Facebook now seems to be focusing on Instagram. While I had 258 accounts left on my list two nights ago, I'm now down to 108, and only 11 accounts with 10,000 followers or more. Last week I had over 400.' - https://twitter.com/Shayan86/status/1314351550647672832

QAnon adherents appeared to have fractured into two groups on popular far-right message boards Wednesday, with some realizing their crackpot conspiracy theory was a fraud, while others tried to somehow keep the flame of the Crazy Candle alive.
Ron Watkins, the founder of 8chan who is one of several people suspected of being the anonymous poster “Q” who spawned the conspiracy theory, conceded shortly after Biden was sworn in, telling his supporters it was time for believers to keep their “chins up” and “go back to our lives.”
Apparently they all moved to Telegram....

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

Should be in a Friday thread?
Quote:
Federal officials arrested the head of a fringe medical group that has promoted false claims about vaccines and the anti-malarial drug hydroxycholoroquine in connection with the deadly Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

The Justice Department said in charging documents that it had charged Simone Gold, head of America’s Frontline Doctors, with violent entry, disorderly conduct and entering a restricted building.
John Strand, the group’s communications director, was also charged in connection with the riot, with the DOJ including images of both inside the building.

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

Why is this thread a thing? You meet someone who describes themselves as alt right, you just met someone who isn‘t that good at whatever they say they do

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

Seems not all alt-right US extremists are white supremacists.
Last Saturday, July 3, U.S. law enforcement members once again confronted heavily armed extremists. The 11 men arrested along I-95 near Wakefield, Mass., are not, however, white supremacists from the Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, or Proud Boys but members of a little-known African American group, the Rise of the Moors.
The Rise of the Moors are Moorish Sovereign Citizens, a subset of the larger Sovereign Citizens movement which is usually thought of as white supremacists.

Timothy Drew, known Noble Drew Ali, founded the Moorish Science Temple of America in the 1920s. The religious group follows Islam and believes that all African-Americans can trace their lineage to Moab - an ancient kingdom in modern-day Jordan.

The Rise of the Moors group claims to base its beliefs on the Moorish Science Temple of America and its founder Prophet Drew Ali.

But the leaders of the Moorish Science Temple of America, based in Atlanta, told me they disavow the Rise of the Moors and the group’s claims of sovereignty.

Moorish Science Temple of America leaders allege the Rise of The Moors is a misguided version of their religion obey American laws in the United States.
There two different groups "The Rise of the Moors group" and the "Moorish Science Temple of America".
