A reporter for Buzzfeed has written that phrase “victims of communism” is a talking point for white nationalists, liberal “code” for white supremacist.
BuzzFeed tech and protest reporter Blake Montgomery made the remark in relation to President Donald Trump making November 7th the National Day for Victims of Communism.
Montgomery has deleted the tweet since, but here’s a screenshot:
Incredibly, Montgomery even got backlash from his own co-workers…who would frame a little old lady for murder if it made Trump look bad somehow.

A BuzzFeed reporter claimed that the phrase “victims of communism” is a talking point for white nationalists over Twitter Tuesday night.
Blake Montgomery, BuzzFeed’s tech and protest reporter, ostensibly made the comment in relation to President Donald Trump making Nov.7 the National Day for Victims of Communism.
“‘Victims of Communism’ is a white nationalist talking point. Trump just made Nov 7 Natl Day for Vics of Communism,” Montgomery tweeted. He has since deleted the tweet.
Others within Montgomery’s own company disagreed with him over Twitter, pointing out that many people, other than white nationalists, believe the day should be celebrated.
“There are plenty of people who are not white nationalists who think this should be commemorated. Soviet oppression was real,” Miriam Elder, BuzzFeed’s world editor, noted.
Why doesn’t Buzzfeed just publish one gigantic paragraph, “Anyone who disagrees with us about anything is a Nazi.” That would be a lot simpler…and just as easy to ignore.
