Shia LaBeouf Shouts Down Alleged White Supremacist (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Actor Shia LaBeouf shouted down an alleged white supremacist on Jan. 22 at his new performance art show against President Donald Trump in New York City (video below).

In the video, the man accused of being a white supremacist says, "14," into LaBeouf's 24-hour live stream broadcast at the HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US exhibition, notes Raw Story.

In response, LaBeouf repeatedly shouts at the man: "He will not divide us!" which is the slogan people are invited to state into the web camera.

LaBeouf's HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US project is scheduled to go on for the next four years, and was co-created with Nastja Sade Ronkko and Luke Turner, reports The Daily Dot.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

The web camera is mounted on an outside wall of the Museum of the Moving Image.

Raw Story notes that the number 14 is short for "14 Words," a racist code.

According to the Anti-Defemation League website, the infamous "14 Words" are: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children":

The slogan was coined by David Lane, a member of the white supremacist terrorist group known as The Order (Lane died in prison in 2007). The term reflects the primary white supremacist worldview in the late 20th and early 21st centuries: that unless immediate action is taken, the white race is doomed to extinction by an alleged "rising tide of color" purportedly controlled and manipulated by Jews.

Because of its widespread popularity, white supremacists reference this slogan constantly, in its full form as well as in abbreviated versions such as "14 Words," "Fourteen Words," or simply the number "14.'

The Southern Poverty Law Center goes into more detail about Lane and The Order:

A member of the terrorist group The Order, which was responsible for the 1984 assassination of Jewish radio host Alan Berg and many other crimes, Lane became even more of a movement icon after penning what rapidly became the best-known slogan of the U.S. white supremacist movement, the so-called "14 Words"...

Sentenced to a total of 190 years for his crimes as a member of The Order, Lane spent his time in prison industriously pumping out racist tracts and other propaganda. After his death, a number of small memorial rallies were held in the United States and several European nations.
