“It’s The Little Things”: NBC Analyst Criticizes Trump’s Order To Lower Flags After Massacre As Implied Salute To White Supremacy

Frank Figluizzi, an NBC News national security contributor, voiced a bizarre criticism of President Donald Trump after Trump ordered flags to be flown at half mast because of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Figluizzi said that the date, August 8th, meant that the shorthand date of 8/8 could be viewed as a reference to 88 which could be a reference to HH (the eighth letter in the alphabet) which could be viewed as a salute to “Heil Hitler.” Figluizzi explained that Trump could be simply ignorant of the obvious reference. There is another possibility: Frank Figluizzi is a reference to FF which is a reference to 66 (as the sixth letter in the alphabet) which is a reference to Route 66 which is a reference to the song “Get Your Kicks On Route 66” which is a reference to freeing yourself from any obligations or responsibilities . . . like serious commentary.

Figluizzi is the former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence and told MSNBC’s Brian Williams:

“It’s the little things and the language and messaging that matters. The president said that we will fly our flags at half-mast until Aug. 8. That’s 8/8. Now, I’m not going to imply that he did this deliberately, but I am using it as an example of the ignorance of the adversary that’s being demonstrated by the White House. The numbers 88 are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them the numbers 88 together stand for ‘Heil Hitler.’ So we’re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8.”

He then added without a hint of humor or irony: “No one’s thinking about this, no one’s giving him the advice. Or he’s rejecting the advice.”

The reason that “no one’s thinking about this” is that it is perfectly insane. It is even hard to believe that a hardcore Nazi would celebrate an obvious pure coincidence of an abbreviated date memorializing victims. If they do, it is hardly a reason to delay the nation mourning the dead.

This is not the first such controversy of 88. We previously discussed how some people objected to a detergent because it happened to show a jersey with 88 on the box.

One has to give the NBC analyst some credit for finding a way — no matter how contrived — to criticize Trump for honoring the dead of these massacres and to suggest that it is actually a celebrating of white supremacy. I am highly skeptical that neo-Nazis would celebrate the coincidence but if they do it is because they are perfectly insane. That does not mean that Trump should wait until 8/9/2019 to mourn the fallen . . . which would translate to HITS for the alphabetically obsessional.

  1. For each F there is a 6 and the date 8/8/19. So for each F there is the sequence 6 8 8 19. Now, add them up. 6+8+8+19+6+8+8+19=94. The prime factors of 94 are 2 and 47, which correspond to 47 47. 4+7=11, so we get 11 11. This corresponds to KK. This is an subtle reference to the KKK. So Frank is a supporter of the KKK

  2. Can someone please explain why the Sun worshippers would pick Chaldean over Pythagorean numerology? Is one more “sacred” to their religion? Does it go back to the Druids?

    I picked up a few satanic and witchcraft books in the historic section of the library once…I was curious, I saw some numerology stuff in there; but yeah, I regret even touching those old dirty books without gloves, but that’s another story.

    1. Anonymous – Styxenhammer666 has retranslated a lot of those books and has them available on Amazon in much clean editions.

      1. Paul – I watched this guy on the YT, he’s interesting, and funny too. I’ve added him to my YT List. It says he’s a alt right guy…is he? He is obviously not dem or liberal, but he doesn’t seem extreme to me, at least not yet…he is opinionated, but not extreme… goth, yes, funny, yes, idk…tbd.

        1. Anonymous – Styx is not alt-right, that is based on the fact that he interviewed someone from the alt-right and spent all his time knocking down his arguments. Styx is more Classical Liberal.
