Trump Retweets Racist Logo, Justice Department Links to Hate Site

Racist "Lion's Guard" Logo retweeted by Trump.
Tweet from VDARE with Lion’s Guard logo.

Last week, the Justice Department sent a morning newsletter to immigration judges which linked to the racist and anti-semitic VDARE website. VDARE is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. It is named after Virginia Dare, the first white child born in the English colonies. Yesterday, Donald Trump Tweeted a video that used a VDARE logo that appears to have originated from a white nationalist group called The Lion’s Guard. The shadowy Lion’s Guard takes it name from a quote from Italian Fascist Benito Mussolini. The dictator once said, “It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.” Trump has himself quoted the saying.

This is not the first time Trump has retweeted racism. In July he retweeted Canadian white nationalist Lauren Southern, the popularizer of the idea that a conspiracy is using immigration to replace whites with non-white immigrants. This Great Replacement myth was cited by the El Paso terrorist.

The inclusion of links to VDARE in the Justice Department newsletter may be connected to an effort by the Trump administration intimidate Immigration Judges, some of whom are too devoted to due process to follow the Trump line on rapid deportation. The Trump administration is trying to break the judges union and drive out due process-minded judges.


  1. This article is moronic. The symbol has everything to do with love and freedom, and the southern poverty law center is a corrupted organisation hell bent on false accusations against anything American.
    The symbol is a LION! It has multilayered meanings; 1. Trump family crest 2. Lion Guard militia volunteers who protect Trump supporters at gatherings 3. The LION of JUDAH returning.
    We are ALL people of color, the RED, WHITE and BLUE!
