L’homme qui murmure a l’oreille de Trump

n

Expérience zéro en politique, misogyne, islamophobe, mexicanophobe et climato-sceptique : Donald Trump avait tout pour se faire détester par tous, les démocrates, les républicains -son propre camp- ou la majeure partie de la communauté internationale. Pourtant, c'est bien lui qui devient le nouveau président américain. Déjouant tous les pronostics, il a remporté une victoire incontestable, porté apparement par une volonté de renouvellement de la classe politique.

VIDEO. Donald Trump et l'extrême droite américaine, la "love story" ?

L’homme qui murmure a l’oreille de Trump

Enquête sur le fonctionnement – et les dysfonctionnements – du nouveau pouvoir qui s’est installé à Washington, au sein du premier cercle des conseillers de Donald Trump. Déclarations fracassantes, luttes d’influence, confrontations idéologiques… : en s’appuyant sur de multiples sources à l’intérieur de l’administration, le film tente de déchiffrer l’avenir du pays, qui se joue derrière des portes closes. Au centre de cette enquête se trouve Steve Bannon, magnat de la presse « alt-right » (d’extrême droite), devenu le principal conseiller politique à la Maison-Blanche. Début avril, Donald Trump a voulu montrer qu’il prenait ses distances avec celui qu’on présente comme son éminence grise, notamment en le démettant de ses fonctions au Conseil national de sécurité. Mais comment interpréter ce petit coup de théâtre ? On doit en tout cas à Steve Bannon le caractère offensif du discours présidentiel d’investiture, ainsi que le « décret antimusulmans » du 27 janvier, retoqué depuis. Afin de mieux comprendre ses positions idéologiques, le film explore son passé de conseiller militaire dans la Marine américaine, puis de banquier chez Goldman Sachs, et surtout son rôle à la tête du site Breitbart News Network, devenu l’un des principaux relais médiatiques de la droite extrême et des ultraconservateurs. Passant au crible son parcours ainsi que ceux de deux autres hommes clés de l’administration Trump, le jeune conseiller politique Stephen Miller et le ministre de la Justice Jeff Sessions, le documentariste Michael Kirk explicite la vision qui préside aujourd’hui aux destinées de l’Amérique – et du monde.

US politician says 'kill them all' after London attack

Rights groups denounce comments after US congressman called for a war against 'Islamic horror' after deadly attack. A US congressman has called for a war against "Islamic horror" in response to the attacks in London over the weekend that claimed the lives of seven and wounded 48.

Congressman Higgins' comments on social media do nothing but fan the flames of anti-Muslim rhetoric, which have reached a fever pitch following the 2016 election," Heidi Beirich, director of Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Project, which monitors hate groups in the US, told Al Jazeera via email.

 

"Words have consequences and, in a time where hate crimes against Muslims are up 67 percent, our elected officials need to be issuing statements of unity and not vilification," she said.

Al Jazeera contacted the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a nationwide grassroots civil rights advocacy organisation for comment on Higgins' statement.

Higgins' office did not immediately respond to Al Jazeera's request for comment.

Etats-Unis : les arrestations de clandestins s’accélèrent

L’administration Trump a donné toute latitude à la police de l’immigration pour multiplier les reconduites à la frontière. Les arrestations visent de plus en plus les clandestins sans passé criminel.LE MONDE |

 

« Les familles sont séparées en silence »

Cinq mois après le changement d’administration, le scénario est devenu banal. Pendant que le pays a les yeux rivés sur le « show Trump », la police de l’immigration (Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE) s’active, sous le radar. Sans effet d’annonce, sans coordination, en « raids » qui seraient largement couverts par les médias, mais au cas par cas. Un clandestin à la fois, et peu importe qu’il ait un emploi, une maison, une voiture, un emprunt, des assurances et qu’il paie des taxes pour une couverture santé dont il n’a pas le droit de bénéficier.

Selon le Washington Post, 22 000 immigrants ont été arrêtés entre janvier et mars, soit une augmentation de 33 % par rapport à 2016. « Les gens sont ramassés en silence. Les familles sont séparées en silence, se désole Crissy Gallardo, qui tremble elle-même pour ses parents

"We are anxious to politically defeat them," he explained. "We don't believe there should be platforms for fascists because history teaches us we can't allow that."

Hoku Jeffrey, a national organiser with By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), a left-wing civil rights group, maintains that militant anti-fascism is necessary to prevent the growth of alt-right groups and others like them. 

BAMN has participated in the recent mass protests in Berkeley, California, among them the demonstration that resulted in the cancellation of a speech by far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos in February when Antifa hurled objects at the building and set fires outside.

"This not a question of abstract free speech; it is a question of the right of immigrants, Muslims, other oppressed minorities, and women to live and live safely, together with countless others who vehemently oppose these violent racist attacks," he told Al Jazeera by email.

Jeffrey argues that Trump supporters and the alt-right are acting "out of a desperate sense of embattlement" and that resistance to the Trump administration's policies will continue to grow.

"More people, especially growing numbers of immigrants and young people, are taking direct action to obstruct Trump's policies and confront his most dangerous racist and neo-fascist supporters."

The Rise of Trump - Fault Lines

 

US anti-fascists take on alt-right fight squads

Antifa groups and alt-right activists have increasingly clashed with one another in cities and towns across the US.

A group of black-clad anarchists surround a far-right activist, pushing him from their protest area and dousing him in silly string. The anti-fascist demonstrators had gathered in Portland in the United States to counter an alt-right rally.

"Nazis go home," they yell in videos of the incident on Sunday.

Other anti-fascists - or Antifa - set ablaze a blue, black and white version of the US flag that signifies support for the police in a gesture against police brutality.

Columns of police in riot gear, supported by officers from the Department of Homeland Security, stand between the alt-right rally-goers and the Antifa counter-protesters, and although there are only minor skirmishes between them, clashes between the police and Antifa result in the arrest of at least 14 people.

Sunday was just the latest occasion on which Antifa activists and alt-rightists have converged on cities across the US with the intention of fighting.

For Antifa, direct confrontation is a key strategy intended to shut down far-right demonstrations and block platforms for hate speech.

Over the past few months, the alt-right - a loosely knit coalition that includes white supremacists and neo-Nazis - has also focused on building a larger street presence to confront their opponents.

Although they have many disagreements with US President Donald Trump, they have generally supported his far-right policies.

Since Trump's inauguration on January 20, the alt-right has sought to build broader alliances with neo-Nazi groups and more mainstream Trump supporters in order to fight Antifa, say analysts and activists. 

Patriot Prayer, a far-right Christian group headed by alt-right activist Joey Gibson, was behind the Portland rally. While Gibson says the protests he holds in Portland are for the promotion of free speech, white supremacists - such as Portland stabbing suspect Jeremy Christian - have attended the events.

The fatal attack came just a week after Sean Christopher Urbanski, a 22-year-old studying at the University of Maryland, allegedly killed Richard Collins III, a 23-year-old African American student at a nearby university.

The assailant was a member of a Facebook group titled the "Alt-Reich", a play on words on the German Third Reich and the alt-right. Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.

'There will be blood'

Speaking to Al Jazeera by telephone, Gibson denied any links to Christian and insisted that his group evicted the alleged killer from a recent protest. Christian was recently filmed making Nazi salutes and calling for the death of Jews, Muslims and "fake Christians" at one of Gibson's events before eventually being ejected.

"This is about promoting freedom and promoting spirituality," Gibson argued. "Conservatives and libertarians have to get off Facebook and get onto the streets because we've let the left have them for too long."

"Antifa has had no impact on me and my free speech, but they've had more of an impact on others' free speech because they try to make threats," he said.

Gibson decried local authorities for supposedly caving into left-wing pressure, citing the Portland municipality's decision to cancel the city's annual Rose Festival parade in April after anti-fascists promised to confront far-right participants there.

'Increased street fighting presence'

While many far-right and neo-Nazi groups have been active for decades, the alt-right was propelled to the spotlight for its vocal support of Trump during his electoral campaign. 

 

Although deeply divided by ideological differences, mainstream Trump supporters, nationalists, the alt-right and other white supremacists banded together to fight Antifa.

During the street fighting, Nathan Damigo, a former Marine and leader of the white supremacist group Identity Evropa, was filmed sucker punching 20-year-old Antifa activist Louise Rosealma, also known as Emily Rose Marshall.

The effort to engage in more street confrontations is also partly motivated by a general disillusionment with Trump; many alt-rightists resent the president's reneging on electoral promises like halting US military intervention in other countries, said Lyons.

'Anxious to defeat them'

On Saturday, a local branch of the Proud Boys - a far-right nationalist group headed by Vice cofounder and Rebel Media host Gavin McInnes - held a rally for free speech in Boulder, Colorado. They were greeted by hundreds of counter-protesters, including the Rocky Mountain Antifa. Local media reported several arrests.

Next weekend, anti-Muslim protesters will hold the National March Against Sharia, with events scheduled in more than 23 cities nationwide.

Hosted by ACT for America, one of the largest anti-Muslim groups in the US, the march will be the target of Antifa actions in many cities and towns, activists say.

"Our goal is to outnumber and out-shout them and drive them off the streets," he said.
