    Looks like the right wing racists are always busy scurrying about in the background, sowing hate and division. No wonder they love their new Racist in Chief.

    White nationalists are championing a Capital Research Center employee who is at the forefront of an attempt to justify the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed black man killed by two white men while jogging earlier this year.

    Ashley Rae Goldenberg, an investigative reporter at CRC, has gained newfound attention from the far-right by taking part in an effort to smear Arbery and downplay his death after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael on charges of murder and aggravated assault ​last week.

    Goldenberg ​has advanced the idea that Arbery’s killers were justified in shooting him dead in the street, even going so far as to suggest that the government’s arrest of the two men was part of “race war” she claims has been playing out in the United States “for decades.” How Gold​enberg has reacted to Arbery’s death fits a pattern: far-right actors ​have ​long attempted to demonize ​black victims of ​violent crimes​ that have received national outrage.


    ​The lethal actions of the McMichaels against Arbery have been described as vigilantism by the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia and other civil rights groups​. On the day that the GBI arrested the two white men—months after they admitted to Arbery’s killing—Goldenberg tweeted, “Vigilantism is good, actually.”

    Capital Research Center, Goldenberg’s employer, is a decades-old Beltway operation research outfit that targets nonprofit organizations it perceives to be liberal or anti-conservative, actively discouraging contributions to those groups. (Full​ disclosure: People for the American Way, Right Wing Watch’s parent organization, has been among CRC’s targets.​)

    The right-wing operation​, which has dubbed itself “America’s investigative think tank,” is funded largely by conservative megadonors and dark-money groups, including the behemoth Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. Its work, which includes a digital encyclopedia of liberal groups called Influence Watch and a handful of publications that ​take aim at liberal causes, is often cited in conservative media and ​the group is frequently present at major right-wing events such as ​the Conservative Political Action Conference.

    One CRC project, Dangerous Documentaries, contributed $500,000 to the production of “No Safe Spaces,” a film starring comedian Adam Carolla and right-wing commentator Dennis Prager about the supposed erosion of free speech on college campuses.

    So even though it's apparent that Arbery wasn't jogging and that this is most likely just a citizen's arrest gone horribly wrong.

    People are still trying to work with this racist angle?

    Yeah...."likely" a citizens arrest gone wrong, not horribly though, because two racists succeeded in killing a black man, modern day lynching, their mission was accomplished. Nobody has to "work" a racist angle, only a racist would say that. Here, this is from your Fox news, so you should have the balls to click on it, you rarely see any reasonable reporting there but they throw a couple of crumbs now and then.

    "That is not the citizen's arrest statute in the state of Georgia," said Grace, "This will never stand up in a court of law."

    "It is wrong on a couple of different levels. Number one, the citizen's arrest statute in Georgia says that in order to make a citizen's arrest, a private citizen must have a warrant."

    "However, there are exceptions for that -- one is if the private citizen witnesses a violation of state law that is committed ... in their immediate presence. Based on everything that I've seen on the report, they can't even get past the first hurdle, which is they didn't see this young man commit any type of offense."

    If your choice is to act like a child, then you're free to do so on your own time.

    You still have no standard that shows anyone's race was a deciding factor in any of this. So continuing to try and call it a racist act is just an idiotic decision.

    The current stance of them attempting a citizen's arrest still stands. Even if they didn't know how to fully apply it off the bat, because I doubt that had anyone not looked it up. Neither of us would be able to repeat what necessitates making such an arrest ourselves.

    If you want to continue calling this a racist murder. Then you should find some measure that makes it a logical claim.
