Avenatti Makes So-Called “White Supremacist” Gesture During Wednesday Presser

Published

on

During a Wednesday evening press conference during which shady attorney Michael Avenatti categorically denied allegations of domestic abuse levied against him, he appeared to flash what has become a signal of white supremacy to the fake news media.

“I have never struck a woman,” he said during the press conference. “I never will strike a woman. I have been an advocate for women’s rights my entire career, and I’m going to continue to be an advocate. I am not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing. I am a father to two beautiful, smart daughters. I would never disrespect them by touching a woman inappropriately or striking a woman.”

But all the while, he was making the “OK” hand gesture, which the political left now says is a symbol of white power.

NBC tried to ruin a Coast Guard serviceman’s life for making the symbol on television during Hurricane Florence coverage.

“A member of a U.S. Coast Guard team responding to Tropical Storm Florence in South Carolina appeared to flash a white power hand gesture in the background as a captain was being interviewed Friday by MSNBC,” the news outlet said. “A man in a red shirt was seen casually displaying the ‘OK’ hand signal against the right side of his face as he sat at a table in the background.”

“While the gesture appears innocuous and may have started as an online troll campaign, it has seemingly become a symbol used by alt-right supporters to ‘trigger’ liberals with the implicit suggestion that white nationalist views have become more prominent,” the report said.

Was Avenatti implicitly suggesting that he is part of the apparently-growing white nationalist movement?

Big League Politics reached out to the author of the NBC piece, Dennis Romero, to see if he was covering Avenatti’s apparent dog whistle, but he did not immediately respond to our comment request.

USA Today made the same claim.

“The symbol has been called a ‘trolling gesture’ by the Anti Defamation League. The ‘OK’ sign’s association with the white power movement started out as a 2017 hoax campaign aimed at drumming up false outrage,” they wrote in reference to the same incident. “The organization says that the symbol has been used by some known white supremacists, its use has increased since 2017 and its meaning is continually evolving.”

Leftist Michael Moore Chides Joe Biden for Pursuing “White Racist Redneck Votes in Michigan”

Moore isn’t happy Biden is going for Republican voters.

Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore blasted Democratic nominee for pursuing what he termed as “white racist redneck votes in Michigan in a Saturday tweet.

Moore took offense at Biden’s decision to accept the endorsement of NeverTrump RINO former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. Snyder, who left office as one of the most unpopular governors in the history of the state, oversaw the response to the Flint water crisis.

Moore saw it as offensive that Biden would tout Snyder’s endorsement on the basis of the water scandal, in which tens of thousands of mostly black Flint residents were provided with contaminated and dangerous tap water on the part of the state.

It’s of some political importance to point out that Joe Biden isn’t a socialist. He’s a neoliberal corporate Democrat with a long track record of policy positions that are distinct from the track record of socialists such as Bernie Sanders. The former Vice President is planning on coasting to victory through making inroads with senior and suburban affluent voters, but his reluctance to pay homage to young left-wing voters who formed a considerable part of the 2008 Obama coalition could spell his November downfall.

Moore’s description of supposed “white racist redneck voters” in Michigan doesn’t exactly spell much in support of new voter outreach on the part of Democrats, suggesting that the seemingly malleable Democrat coalition might stretch too much and figuratively explode.
