Robert Spencer: Left Using Charlottesville as ‘Reichstag Fire Moment to Crush All Dissent’

Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch director, joined SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily to discuss the congressional resolution calling upon President Trump to condemn hate groups.

Kassam proposed that without precise, nonpartisan definitions of what constitutes a “hate group,” the congressional resolution is tantamount to declaring “open season on free speech.”

“Oh, absolutely, and it’s extraordinarily insidious as well,” Spencer agreed. “Remember, of course, that the Southern Poverty Law Center classifies legitimate conservative organizations that dissent from the leftist line as ‘hate groups.’”

“This resolution specifically refers to white supremacists, white nationalists, Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups – so what this is, is yet another element of the left’s attempt to use Charlottesville as its Reichstag Fire moment, to crush all dissent,” he warned.

“They lump us in with the Klan and neo-Nazis, and now, they have the president committing to use all available resources – that’s what the resolution says – against us. There’s no doubt in my mind whatsoever, and I’m sure there’s none in yours, as well, that this will be used against us. The Klan and the neo-Nazis, in reality, are insignificant and negligible forces. This is about us,” he told Kassam.

In that context, Spencer said the prospect of President Trump’s signing an amnesty deal to ratify the DACA amnesty for illegal immigrants is “chilling because it’s very clear what’s being done here.”

“They’ve backed the president into a corner because they’ve accused him, they’ve accused his close associates, people like Steve Bannon, of being white nationalists and white supremacists,” he explained. “The people who sponsored this resolution see this as Trump turning against the people who elected him and turning against the principles upon which he was elected. The problem is, apparently the president has allowed himself to be backed into this corner and is not sufficiently aware of what’s happening to stop it.”
