Trump Jr. Pushes Conspiracy Principle the U.S. Navy Is ‘Actually Attacking American Civilians’

“Patriot Party was socialist Antifa”

President Donald Trump has been talking about the creation of a new political party called the Patriot Party for the past few days. Social media users instantly mocked Trump – not only because he wanted to start a new party given his historically unpopular election numbers, but also because of the name he had chosen for his new group.

Late last week, former Trump Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told Foreign Policy that President Trump just didn’t know the story.

“His understanding of global events, his understanding of global history, his understanding of US history was really limited,” Tillerson said. “It’s really hard to have a conversation with someone who doesn’t even understand the concept of why we’re talking about it.”

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday night that Trump plans to name his new political party the Patriot Party.

Unsurprisingly, there was a Patriot Party back in the 1960s. It ended in the 80s. Trump lived through those years but apparently missed it.

The Patriot Party was associated with the Black Panthers, a radical left-wing political group against racism that broke up in the early 1980s. It grew through community organization and became popular with poor rural Americans by advocating for free basic necessities like food and wood for stoves.

Trump is apparently not the first in the past few days to come up with the idea. It’s been rolling around on social media since last month.

Here’s what some say:

So a group of Parler maniacs and boogaloo boys formed a telegram group called the Patriot Party calling for this …

In the late 1960s a “Patriot Party” was organized. It was an American socialist organization for
impoverished whites in rural areas. Eventually it became tied to both the Rainbow Coalition and the Black Panthers. Trump, still a bozo 🤡!

Ha! A previous Patriot Party (1960s-1980s) was a socialist, multiracial coalition of community organizers and anti-fascists affiliated with the Rainbow Coaltion founded by Fred Hampton of the Black Panthers!

Trump’s irony of wanting to found the Patriot Party is tremendous.

Patriot Party was a rural white SOCIALIST organization closely associated with Jesse Jackson and black panthers. It was founded after the 1969 United Front Against Fascism conference.

I think it’s funny that people are talking about joining the Patriot Party and being part of a white supremacy group but don’t see the Patriot Party befriending the black panthers 🤔

“The Patriot Party was a member of the original Rainbow Coalition founded by Fred Hampton of the Black Panther Party …”

“In 1970 the FBI arrested the entire Central Committee of the Patriot Party …”

History would repeat itself.

You mustn’t know that Google exists because a Patriot Party took place in the United States between 1960 and 1980. Elected liberally, founded in part by the Black Panthers, and would be the enemy of this current stance on the party. Damn idiots
