Charlottesville Is Biggest ‘Fake News’ of Summer


Again, just to be clear. The Neo-Nazi-KKK-White National racist march to defend Confederate was an evil that must be reprehensible to all Americans. I mean these guys actually were more concerned about a public display of their racist ideology then legitimately protesting the historical cleansing of American history.

 

David Horowitz points out the racists legally applied for and obtained permit to march publicly. The Antifa/Black Lives Matter Communists did not have a permit. AND the Charlottesville Police made zero effort to enforce the law when the Antifa/BLM Marxist/Black Supremacist supporters counter-protested illegally without a permit.

Charlottesville Is Biggest ‘Fake News’ of Summer

[Newsmax] Editor’s Note: David Horowitz is the author of the runaway New York Times bestseller “Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America.” His book first predicted the anti-Trump left would use race to divide America and undermine the Trump presidency. His op-ed for Newsmax appears below. Get more info on “Big Agenda” — Go Here Now.

 

The tragedy in Charlottesville could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation towards civil war.

 

Instead the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally.

 

The organizers of the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists.

 

But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to attack it or presumably anyone else.

 

They applied for a permit and were denied. They re-applied successfully in a petition supported by the local ACLU.

 

If they had come to precipitate violence, why would they have gone to the tedious trouble of applying for a permit?

 

Who knows what — if anything — would have happened if that had been the end of the story and no one had showed up to oppose them.

 

What Unite the Right actually demonstrated was that the assortment of neo-Nazis, pro-Confederates and assorted yahoos gathered under the banner of the “Alt-Right” is actually a negligible group.

 

This supposed national show of strength actually attracted all of 500 people.

 

Compare that to the tens of the thousands who can readily be marshaled by two violent groups of the left — Black Lives Matter and Antifa — and you get an idea of how marginal “white supremacists” are to America’s political and cultural life.

 

Yet “white supremacy” and its evils became the centerpiece of all the fake news reporting on the event, including all the ludicrous attacks on the president for not condemning enough a bogeyman the whole nation condemns, and that no one but a risible fringe supports.

 

Talk about virtue signaling!

 

Omitted from the media coverage were the other forces at work in precipitating the battle of Emancipation Park, specifically Black Lives Matter and Antifa, two violent leftwing groups with racial agendas who came to squelch the demonstration in defense of the monument.

 

Unlike the Unite the Right demonstrators, the leftist groups did not apply for permits, which would have been denied since there was another demonstration scheduled for that park on that day.

 

But why should they have applied for a permit, since the mayhem they had previously caused in Ferguson, Berkeley, Sacramento, Portland and other cities, was accomplished without permits, while their criminality was presented by the media as “protests,” and their rioting went completely unpunished.

 

In other words, there were two demonstrations in Charlottesville — a legal protest by Unite the Right and an illegal protest by the vigilantes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

 

Who started the fight is really immaterial. Both sides were prepared for violence because these conflicts are already a pattern of our deteriorating civic life.

 

Once the two sides had gathered in the same place, the violence was totally predictable.

 

Two parties, two culpabilities; but except for the initial statement of President Trump, condemning both sides, only one party has been held accountable, and that happens to be the one that was in the park legally.

 

What is taking place in the media accounts and political commentaries on this event is an effort by the left to turn the mayhem in Charlottesville into a template for their war against a mythical enemy — “white supremacy” — which is really a war on white people generally.

 

The ideology that drives the left and divides our country is “identity politics” — the idea that the world consists of two groups — “people of color” who are guiltless and oppressed, and white people who are guilty and oppressors.

 

This is the real race war.

 

Its noxious themes inform the mindless, hysterical hatred of President Trump, and the equally mindless support of racist mobs like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

 

It is a war from which no good can come. But it won’t be stopped unless enough people have the courage to stand up and name it for what it is.

Charlottesville Violent Participants Pt ONE


John R. Houk

© August 16, 2017

 

The clash between extreme Left and extreme Right in Charlottesville VA has been a primary staple of the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) lately. The difficulty with the reporting is that it is all one-sided.

 

It is an awesome thing to expose the racism involved with the extreme Right protesters using Confederate history as an excuse to go medieval. HOWEVER, it is a huge MSM failure to not report that the extreme Left came to that protest ready to engage in head-knocking as well. This what President Trump has been communicating that there was wrong on both sides. But the MSM used the President’s two wrongs don’t make a right commentary as a fake news accusation that he supported the racists in the Charlottesville melee.

 

I personally am a bit perturbed with the MSM associating ALL Conservative supporters of the Trump agenda to Make America Great Again with the racist extremists who came to bash extreme Leftist heads.

 

In this Part ONE I am going to look at the Charlottesville racists as a bit of an expose of what Conservatives must denounce. Then Part Two I will look at the background of the extreme Left who came to bash the heads of the extreme Right. I’ll be using a grouping of racists I found at The Gospel Coalition.

 

A witness on the Counter-Protest side of Charlottesville clash – Kristin Adolfson – recounts her perspective:

 

“But I was getting the heck out of there. I always look for escape routes. Most people were moving away from the various white-supremacist groups marching downtown—the neo-Nazis, the Southern Brotherhood, or whatever, with their shields.

 

“I thought there were gonna be a lot more alt-right people there. As far as what I saw, it was, like, five counter-protesters for every neo-Nazi.

 

“One of the alt-right factions marched right by and we just stood there and watched them intently, making eye contact. At that point, they ran into another group of counter-protesting locals, who were African-American. The alt-right people were chanting, ‘Heil Trump!’ That got really intense, so we tried to get some cops, but they didn’t come at that point.

 

“I was about ten feet away when the car came. I had joined a group marching from the Downtown Mall—a group of anti-fascists and Black Lives Matter folks—and we were silently marching by Friendship Court, a low-income-housing area where many minorities live. We’d heard that the fascists had already gone there and tried to cause problems. So we marched by, in silence. We didn’t want to make a scene. We just wanted to be in solidarity with the people there. Then we saw a bunch of other counter-protesters coming down Second Street. Another diverse group. We all were cheering together, marching together, clapping and chanting. There was no one else around. No standoff. We were just marching, being peaceful. This was around two o’clock, I guess. It was a very exuberant feeling of solidarity, community, all that.

 

 

“I was ten feet away, so I didn’t really see details of the car. It was just sudden movement through the crowd, sound, bodies in the air. One of my friends was an inch away from the car. I went and found her and she was looking for her partner. She was freaking out. I stood with her until she found him. She’s in one of those photos circulating around now.

 

READ ENTIRETY (A Witness to Terrorism in Charlottesville; By Charles Bethea; The New Yorker; 8/13/17)

 

Bethea’s interview with Kristin Adolfson was a bit one-sided because there is zero mention of the counter-protesters coming armed ready to confront the racist White Supremacist groups who also came armed. The Bethea interview does point out the counter-protesters outnumbered the racist White Supremacist 5 to 1:

 

“I thought there were gonna be a lot more alt-right people there. As far as what I saw, it was, like, five counter-protesters for every neo-Nazi.

 

I wonder what the reader would have come away thinking if they knew Antifa (“anti-fascists”) and Black Lives Matter (BLT) were represented among the counter-protesters and many came geared in battle garb?

 

Most Americans understand the racist nature of White Supremacist groups such as the KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Nationalists and such that may come to mind. However, just in case time has distanced some younger folks to just what these American racists stood for, let’s take a brief look.

 

The Gospel Coalition names these White Supremacists at Charlottesville VA:

 

Some of the groups included were the Proud Boys (a far-right men’s organization), the Alt Knights (a “tactical defensive arm of the Proud Boys”), the American Guard (a white nationalist group), Real 3% Risen (a neo-Confederate group), League of the South (a neo-Confederate group), the Lightfoot Militia (a private militia group), the Traditionalist Worker Party (a white nationalist group), the Nationalist Front (a white nationalist group), Vanguard America (a white nationalist group), and four different groups of the KKK. (The FAQs: Violence and Death at a White Nationalist Rally in Charlottesville; By Joe Carter; The Gospel Coalition; 8/14/17)

 

I am going to look at the group listed by TGC which in full disclosure probably is not a complete list. For example, the Leftist news site Vox also included a group called [Real] 3% Risen. 3%-ers aren’t usually racists and are typically more upset with the Federal government deviating from Originalist Constitutionalism. I’m having a difficult time referencing the Real 3% Risen group thus I am sticking with the TGC list. If I was to hazard a guess though, if the Real 3% Risen group were not White Supremacists, they would have been the only non-White Supremacists in Charlottesville VA.

 

I begin with the KKK.

 

Ku Klux Klan (KKK)

 

The KKK was formed in post-Civil War day primarily in the Southern States rebelling against Union. Here’s a History.com excerpt:

 

Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks. Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at white and black Republican leaders. Though Congress passed legislation designed to curb Klan terrorism, the organization saw its primary goal–the reestablishment of white supremacy–fulfilled through Democratic victories in state legislatures across the South in the 1870s. After a period of decline, white Protestant nativist groups revived the Klan in the early 20th century, burning crosses and staging rallies, parades and marches denouncing immigrants, Catholics, Jews, blacks and organized labor. THERE IS MORE including video (KU KLUX KLAN; History.com Staff; History.com; published 2009)

 

Did you notice the Dems and not the GOP initiated the KKK?

 

Wikipedia sources the Leftist SPLC and Pro-Jewish Rights ADL on KKK “Current Developments”:

 

The modern KKK is not one organization; rather it is composed of small independent chapters across the United States.[198] According to a 1999 ADL report, the KKK’s estimated size then was “No more than a few thousand, organized into slightly more than 100 units.”[199] In 2017, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which monitors extremist groups, estimated that there were “at least 29 separate, rival Klan groups currently active in the United States, and they compete with one another for members, dues, news media attention and the title of being the true heir to the Ku Klux Klan.”[200] … Analysts believe that about two-thirds of KKK members are concentrated in the Southern United States, with another third situated primarily in the lower Midwest.[199][201][202]

 

 

According to a 2016 analysis by the SPLC, hate groups in general are on the rise in the United States.[205] The ADL published a report in 2016 that concluded: “Despite a persistent ability to attract media attention, organized Ku Klux Klan groups are actually continuing a long-term trend of decline. They remain a collection of mostly small, disjointed groups that continually change in name and leadership.”[206]

 

 

Many KKK groups have formed strong alliances with other white supremacist groups, such as neo-Nazis. Some KKK groups have become increasingly “nazified”, adopting the look and emblems of white power skinheads.[210] (Ku Klux Klan; Wikipedia; last edited on 8/14/17 03:30)

 

In doctrine, the KKK are as racist as ever with a vain attempt to distance themselves from violent brutality which is still conducted. From the Counter Extremism Project:

 

The KKK’s overriding doctrine is white supremacy, white solidarity, and preservation of the white race. The group describes itself as “promoters of White Christian civilization.”

 

 

Notwithstanding these attempts to disassociate the KKK from its racist foundations, the “same bigoted rhetoric…lurks beneath the veneer,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The KKK “target[s] blacks more often than any other group.” Biracial couples are also “frequent targets of Klan violence,” while anti-Semitism and “rabidly homophobic” literature since the 1970s also form key pillars of the KKK’s ideology. … (Ku Klux Klan; © 2017 Counter Extremism Project)

 

According TGC, The Charlottesville rally organization the protest permit on behalf of the Proud Boys.

 

Proud Boys

 

Proud Boys is a far-right men’s organization[1][2][3][4] founded in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder and former commentator Gavin McInnes. McInnes describes the organization as a “pro-Western fraternal organization” for men who “refuse to apologize for creating the modern world.”[5]The group has been referred to as alt-right,[6] but McInnes describes the alt-right as “too far” because they think “Whites are what [are] important, not necessarily Western values”, and instead identifies as “alt-lite“. He claims to be inclusive to anyone “as long as you accept the western world as the best.”[7]

 

The group takes its name from the showtune “Proud of Your Boy,” a song introduced in the 2011 stage-show version of Disney’s Aladdin.[6][8]

 

In 2017, Kyle Chapman, with the “full-approval” of McInnes, formed a “street fighting” wing of the Proud Boys called the “Fraternal Order of the Alt-Knights” (FOAK).[9][10] (Proud Boys; Wikipedia; page was last edited on 8/15/17 16:55)

 

From ItsGoingDown.org:

 

Established last year, the Proud Boys was meant to be something between an adult frat and a fan club for Gavin McInnes’ media projects on Compound and Rebel Media. The political aspect of the group was meant to mirror Gavin’s; support of the Trump agenda, male chauvinism, and hatred of Islam, trans people, and leftists. McInnes himself flirts with fascist ideas, writing a column for Taki’s Magazine (a job Richard Spencer helped him land) justifying the political genocide of the Pinochet regime, and often giving a supportive platform to open fascists and neo-Nazis like Emily YoucisNathan Damigo, and Sam Hyde on his show.

 

Despite his affiliations, McInnes has been adamant about keeping Proud Boys an arm’s length from America’s growing neo-Nazi movement, something he recently reiterated in a video for Rebel Media. He claims, first of all, that Nazis don’t exist—most people claiming to be Nazis are just trolling and any reported hate crimes are hoaxes perpetrated by liberals, and secondly, the few Nazis who do exist should not be Proud Boys because he wants the group to appeal to “Jews” and “Blacks.”

 

… Proud Boys were prominent in their black and gold polo shirts, and black, latino, and Jewish Trump supporters fought alongside various species of white identitarians … Sal Cipolla of Oceanside New York, a regional leader of the Proud Boys who is part Colombian. McInnes says he hopes to have a conservative movement to which people of color can defect, and does not worry about inviting them to join in a popular front that starts with his own brand “civil nationalism,” and ends with the white nationalists and raging anti-Semites in their coalition.

 

But Gavin must know how wrong he is that there are no Nazis. Several prominent Proud Boys run in their circles, even Cipolla, who is oddly accepted under the grounds that they will “send him back last.” Together, the allegedly “Alt-Lite” Proud Boys and self-proclaimed neo-Nazis from the Daily Stormer blog and The Right Stuff podcast network have formed an Alt-Right popular front with an agenda of injecting White Nationalism, including it’s most radical calls for ethnic cleansing, genocide, and “White Sharia” into “normy” Trumpism, and intimidating and attacking leftists, queers, and people of color. While they will defend themselves on the grounds of free speech, their incitement to violence has a recent history of success.

 

Since their inception, the Proud Boys have been rooted in THERE IS MORE (Neo-Nazis Brag of Open Connections with Gavin’s ‘Proud Boys’; By One People’s Project; ItsGoingDown.org Overtly Leftist; 5/18/17)

 

Salvatore Cipolla and Gavin McInnes

 

No matter what hear Gavin McInnis says, these Proud Boys dudes are wick racists more than Patriotic Nationalists looking for legitimization from President Trump’s coattails.

 

Next on the list is Alt Knights.

 

Alt Knights

 

From the Proud Boys official website:

 

Shock waves were sent through the Proud Boy universe yesterday as Kyle Chapman, better known as the internet meme “Based Stick Man” announced on facebook he planned to start a Fraternal Order of Alt Knights (or “FOAK”) as a tactical defensive arm of the Proud Boys.  The need for defense has grown since recent premeditated attacks by the radical Marxist group “Anti-Fa” have become the norm at any cultural event politically to the right of Jane Fonda.  Anti-Fa were responsible for the riots in DC, the assault on Gavin McInnes at NYU, and the violent blockade at multiple free speech events including Berkeley in California. (The Kids Are Alt-Knights; By PawL BaZiLe; Proud Boy Magazine; 4/2017)

 

Alt Knights founder Kyle Chapman has a history of getting caught breaking the law and has served considerable time in the slammer:

 

Rap sheet: Suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed dirk or dagger, assault with a taser, assault with pepper spray March 4; 1993 felony robbery conviction in Texas; 2001 grand theft conviction for ripping off Macy’s in San Diego; 2009 conviction for felon in possession of a firearm. (The kids are alt-right: Your guide to the new crop of white nationalists; By C-VILLE Writers; C-Ville.com; 8/10/17 9:00 AM)

 

Chapman’s jailbird days must have turned him into thug deceiving himself he is beating people for the nation:

 

Shortly after the March 4 Berkeley incident, Chapman was arrested again. He was taken into police custody in early April after he allegedly got into an altercation with a skateboarder who hit him, and another man threatened him with a knife.

 

Chapman said in a video that he was marching through Berkeley wearing a large American flag so as to advertise for a free-speech rally planned in the city later in the week.

 

“Just wanted to show you guys there is nothing to fear by coming out here and exercising our First Amendment rights,” he said in the video. “Most of the inhabitants of this city are a bunch of f*****g cowards that couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag.”

 

 

Chapman has started his own branch of American Nationalism, called the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights.

 

He claimed that he started the group to “protect and defend our right wing brethren.” Chapman said he hoped to accomplish those goals through “street activism, preparation, defense, and confrontation.”

 

“(The group) is for those that possess the Warrior Spirit. The weak or timid need not apply,” Chapman wrote. “President Trump has our back for the next 8 years. The timing couldn’t be better. Let’s do this!” (Kyle Chapman aka ‘Based Stickman’: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know; By Chris Bucher; Heavy.com; 6/4/17 8:00am – Updated 5:32pm)

 

I’m all for America First nationalism, but when some of these fellows like Chapman and McInnis use violence to promote a racist American nationalism makes them no them no better than the Leftist Marxists who use race-baiting to incite racists to violence.

 

Next on the list is the American Guard.

 

American Guard

 

… They had American flags, but also carried strange shields. Many wore t-shirts that read “American Guard” or “Vinlanders.”  A few had somewhat sinister appearances, such as the marcher who wore “Vinlanders” sunglasses and sported a “RAHOWA” (“Racial Holy War”) tattoo on the side of his head.

 

 

… The group would, it claimed, “encourage Americans of any race, class or faith to participate with us in these beliefs.”

 

Even a cursory examination of the American Guard, however, suggests that its deliberately innocuous self-description may not be accurate. The group’s logo, for example, prominently displays two crossed meat-cleavers, while members frequently use images of actor Daniel Day Lewis in his role as “Bill the Butcher” in the movie The Gangs of New York. “Bill the Butcher” was a fictionalized version of William Pool, the leader of the Bowery Boys, a violent street gang in New York City infamous for its attacks on immigrants.

 

 

Indeed, before the American Guard was the American Guard, it was actually the Indiana chapter of a group called the Soldiers of Odin USA, a branch of an extreme anti-immigrant and anti-refugee group that originated in Finland in 2015 and has spread to many other countries. … As a recent ADL report has shown, many Soldiers of Odin USA members are white supremacists or anti-government extremists.

 

The man who started the Indiana Soldiers of Odin, and who later converted it into the American Guard, is Brien James, a long-time Indiana white supremacist who was one of the founders of the Vinlanders Social Club (VSC), a hardcore racist skinhead gang that has had a high association with violence. READ ENTIRETY (Behind The American Guard: Hardcore White Supremacists; Anti-Defamation League; 3/30/17)

 

Next on the list is the League of the South.

 

League of the South

 

Here are some excerpts from the League of the South website.

 

What is The League of the South?
by Dr Michael Hill – LS President

 

… The League of the South is a Southern Nationalist organization whose ultimate goal is a free and independent Southern republic.

 

To reach this goal, we intend to create the climate for a free South among our people …

 

 

At present, the League is more concerned with resurrecting our cultural base than with entering into the political arena. Once our Southern culture is re-established, then the political issues will begin to take care of themselves. …

 

League of the South Core Beliefs Statement

 

At its founding meeting in June 1994, The League of the South adopted the following Statement of Purpose:

 

“We seek to advance the cultural, social, economic, and political well-being and independence of the Southern people by all honourable means.”

 

  1. Cultural Independence

 

The League of the South believes that Southern culture is distinct from, and in opposition to, the corrupt mainstream American culture. Therefore, we stand for our own sublime cultural inheritance and seek to separate ourselves from the cultural rot that is American culture. …

 

 

  1. Social Independence

 

The League of the South asserts that Southern society is radically different from the society impressed upon it by an alien occupier. American society today is egalitarian and Marxist and is devoid of any grace or charm. In contrast, we believe in a Southern society that …

 

… Another certainty is that the American Empire that now occupies the South believes in none of the aforementioned ideals and principles. To be truly free and self- governing, the South must throw off the yoke of imperial oppression. Therefore, The League of the South advocates the secession and subsequent independence of the Southern States from this forced union and the formation of a Southern republic. …

 

 

  • Restricts the right to vote solely to those who are recognized as citizens of one of the member States of the confederation.

 

League of the South Statement on “Racism” 
LS Board of Directors

 

The term “racism” has its origins in Communism and that movement’s sordid attempt to undermine Western Christendom. Because it has been effective in silencing many of their opponents, the modern day left continues to employ it. Hence, we in The League of the South will not respond to what we consider as an anti-white and anti-Southern appellation designed to demonize us and inculcate “white guilt” in our people. If you call us “racists,” our response will be “so what?” (Introduction to The League Of The South; League of the South)

 

These LS guys are definitely not Pro-American. They Separatists trying to recreate the culture that existed during and before the Confederacy. Part of that culture was slavery. Without saying so the LS promotes White Supremacy and segregation. Even after blood and gore, there is no way Americans even the South would allow such regression! No matter how you look at it, this movement is NOT about Making America Great Again!

 

Next is the Lightfoot Militia.

 

Lightfoot Militia

 

The website TGC links to the LM PDF entitled “Militia Standards and Principles of the Light Foot” (81 pages):

 

Why “Light Foot”?

 

We in the “Patriot Movement” like tradition.

 

Up until the late 18th / early 19th century, British infantry units were called “Foot” (foot soldiers).

 

As in, the “13th Regiment of Foot”. Light infantry was called “Light Foot”.

 

Cavalry was called “Horse”, heavy cavalry was “Heavy Horse”, for example, the “48th Regiment of Horse”.

 

As we will not have much in the way of supply lines or support elements, we will most likely “live off the land, resupply off the enemy”, so to speak. Carrying what we need on our backs through the

mountains and hills. Light = Fast.

 

Hence, the “Light Foot” militia or “Light Foot”, for short (Idaho Light Foot, Utah Light Foot, etc).

 

 

Statement of Ethics/Mission Statement

Statement of Ethics –

 

It is the duty of the citizen’s militia to protect and defend the unalienable Rights of all members of the community. Under no circumstances will the militia tolerate those who advocate acts of criminal violence, terrorism or a change away from our republican form of government; nor will it support any specific political party or candidate, nor espouse any particular religious denomination or doctrine. All members must understand the duties and obligation of both citizens and government under the United States and their state’s constitution.

 

Mission Statement

 

The members of the unorganized militia shall ever stand, as have our forefathers before us, first to God, from Whom we acknowledge the Authority of all Rights, and all the blessings of governments and to our native state.

 

We therefore pledge:

 

– To promote and defend the unalienable God-given rights of all citizens, regardless of race, sex or national origin, as is expressed in our state constitutions and the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution.

 

– To promote and defend the principles of just government bequeathed to us by our forefathers to whit, that the principle of the Tenth Amendment shall stand inviolate, as history has shown that the greatest system of checks and balances exists with the people and their states to check the powers accrued by the federal government.

 

– That the integrity of the courts, be they local, State or federal, shall remain uncontemptable providing that they shall respect and uphold the rights of the citizens of the several states, including but not limited to, upholding the due process of law, and to preserve the right of trial by jury, and to obtain immediate judicial review of cases wherein abuse of basic Constitutional rights are questioned.

 

– That all power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their Life, Liberty, and Property; for the advancement of those ends they have at all times an unalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper. READ ENTIRETY (Bold Text is Editor’s – Militia Standards and Principles of the Light Foot; By Jeffrey Stankiewicz; TheLightfootMilitia.com; 3rd Edition, 4/19/14 (rev 1))

 

I did not find any hint of racism in this PDF. However, the document is steeped in 10th Amendment State sovereignty yet includes loyalty to the U.S. Constitution and to the State Constitution (in this case Idaho) with obeying the rule of law. UNLESS the government embarks on a path of lawless unconstitutional practices in which case We The People are obligated to “… have at all times an unalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper.”

 

So, who decides among the Lightfoot Militia that the government has become unconstitutionally corrupt? The measuring stick shows such corruption has been on the increase for decades. But again, who decides that the government has gone too far to be redeemable? The answer is not in the PDF.

 

Next is the Traditionalist Worker Party.

 

Traditionalist Worker Party

 

From the front page to https://www.tradworker.org/:

 

The Traditionalist Worker Party is America’s first political party created by and for working families. Our mission is defending Faith, Family, and Folk against the politicians and oligarchs who are running America into the ground. We intend to achieve that goal by building a nationwide network of grassroots local leaders who will lead Americans toward a peaceful and prosperous future free from economic exploitation, federal tyranny, and anti-Christian degeneracy.

 

Notice the Neo-Nazi White Supremacist slogan of “Faith, Family, and Folk”. This is one of the things that bugs me about these racists. They say faith and combine it with Christianity as if the Christian faith is all about racial purity that excludes non-Whites and Jews cannot be Christians. I have news for these racists. The Good News of Jesus Christ is inclusive of all Gentiles (multi-racial non-Jews) and Jews alike. Read all of Chapter 2 of the Epistle to the Ephesians – For clarity here is the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition. For brevity or the point here is an excerpt from Chapter 2:

 

13 But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were [so] far away, through (by, in) the blood of Christ have been brought near.

 

14 For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony). He has made us both [Jew and Gentile] one [body], and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us,

 

15 By abolishing in His [own crucified] flesh the enmity [caused by] the Law with its decrees and ordinances [which He annulled]; that He from the two might create in Himself one new man [one new quality of humanity out of the two], so making peace.

 

16 And [He designed] to reconcile to God both [Jew and Gentile, united] in a single body by means of His cross, thereby killing the mutual enmity and bringing the feud to an end. (Eph. 2: 13-16 AMPC)

 

Under the “Folk” heading of the Traditionalist Worker Party the White Supremacist Nazi racism becomes clear:

 

The ethnic community is the definition of a true nation. Shared blood, history, and traditions are what make a people and bind us together as an extended family. We in the Traditionalist Worker Party fight for the interests of White Americans, a people who for decades have been abandoned by the System and actively attacked by globalists and traitorous politicians.

 

Only by securing a Homeland for our national community, run for and by our people with true self-determination, can we truly have a future for our blood and our culture. We are unapologetically nationalists, fighting to secure the existence of our people and a future for White children. Every one of our policies and platform planks is built upon achieving the goal of a better, happier, healthier and brighter future for our children.

 

Next is the Nationalist Front.

 

Nationalist Front

 

From the Nationalist Front webpage:

 

The Nationalist Front is an umbrella organization to bring unity and solidarity to the White Nationalist movement in North America. This is an alliance between many diverse organizations which seek to better the cultural, economic, and demographic conditions of White Americans.

 

 

A response to nearly every single problem we have in our nation–from street crime to anti-White governmental policies, to attacks on our sovereignty and faith–can be answered in one simple phrase “If White people had a country of our own, this wouldn’t be happening.”

 

 

… we now must sever ties with this illegitimate regime and build for our posterity a nation for us and by us, build from the ground up to put the best interests of our Faith, Family and Folk first. …

 

The only logical solution to the racial strife in America is to follow the example of the dissolution of the USSR and to Balkanize the nation ethnically and culturally.

 

 

There is no longer a defining set of principles, language, religion, culture, or ethnicity of America that bonds the various peoples together with one another, only the same oppression of the federal regime. We as White Nationalists must unite with fellow ethnonationalists to stand on the same barricades against the same enemy, the globalists and the Jewish banking elites.

 

Some Black Americans have already begun to build for themselves a homeland with groups like the Nation of Islam buying thousands of acres of farmland to feed their people, establishing alternative media for their people, celebrating their culture, and gaining political and economic power in regions where Blacks are the majority.

 

Hispanics have already demographically and culturally displaced the former White majority in much of the American Southwest and should be allowed to formalize their control of the communities and regions they already dominate. We must cede what’s no longer ours while doubling down on the communities and regions which remain majority White to begin building our own sovereign and independent Homeland while respecting the right of self determination for majority non-White regions.

 

… Ick, You get the idea – 21st century Nazism 101 (UNITY STATEMENT; The Nationalist Front)

 

Next on the list is Vanguard America. The link by TGC is https://bloodandsoil.org/manifesto/. Either the VG removed the site or WordPress removed it (as of 8/15/17) probably over heat about Charlottesville violence. Here is some Wikipedia info on a similar name National Vanguard:

 

National Vanguard is an American white nationalist organization based in Charlottesville, Virginia, founded in 2005 by Kevin Alfred Strom and former members of the National Alliance.[1] (National Vanguard (American organization); Wikipedia; page was last edited on 8/15/17 23:11)

 

A link provided by Wikipedia sends one to the National Vanguard homepage which one can find the About Page:

 

SCIENCE CONTINUES to prove that race exists. The Human Genome Project has unlocked human DNA, and medical advances are being made based on targeting genetic sequences individual to each race. Thousands upon thousands of years of separate racial development have led to a great diversity of human races, which have in turn formed separate cultures with vastly different values and achievements.

 

 

The European race is uniquely beautiful and creative. It is imperative that we survive and progress.

 

If Vanguard America is similar then racism is prevalent.

 

The Left-Wing Trump hating Washington Post says this about Vanguard America:

 

The secretive organization has been emerging publicly since the presidential election, starting with white nationalist fliers on several college campuses and recruiting on a website that vilifies Jews, racial minorities, gays and multiculturalism. Group members have been rallying alongside neo-Nazis, white nationalists and white supremacists, and its members have been seen in images on social media — faces often blurred — as groups of young white men waving black flags and wearing black hats emblazoned with a Vanguard America white eagle logo.

 

 

… it is unclear how many members Vanguard America has or what broader influence it has achieved. The group’s website rails against the loss of white control of the United States and proclaims white America’s “right to exist.”

 

 

Dillon Irizarry, 29, a Marine Corps veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and identifies himself as the group’s president, said in a Skype interview Monday that his is a political group that does not calling for or condone violence. … (Vanguard America, a white supremacist group, denies Charlottesville ramming suspect was a member; By Justin Wm. Moyer and Lindsey Bever; Washington Post; 8/15/17 6:51 PM)

 

Mr. Irizarry, if Vanguard America is non-violent, why does WaPo have a picture of you guys in battle gear including logo mark shields in Charlottesville VA?

Vanguard America, a white supremacist group with whom Fields congregated, denies that he was a member. (Alan Goffinski/AP)

 

Here is interesting info on Dillon Irizarry:

 

Dillon Ulysses Hopper, the self-described “CEO” of the Vanguard America neo-Nazi hate group whose members appeared alongside Fields in a widely-circulated photograph taken at the rally, reportedly joined the Marine Corps in 2005. A veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Hopper’s military records show the 29-year-old New Mexico native (whose birth name is Dillon Irizarry) served as an enlisted Marine, an information security technician (MOS 0681).

 

 

These days, Hopper reportedly goes by the name “Commander Dillon” — and his “army” was on full display at the #UniteTheRight rally in Charlottesville on Aug. 12, when the group marched alongside other extremist organizations in protest of the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. …

 

Hopper managed to rise to the rank of staff sergeant and remained on active duty until January 2017, according to his military records. He claimed in an interview with Splinter that he became the leader of Vanguard America one year ago. Marine Corps policy prohibits members from participating in organizations “that espouse supremacist causes,” and violators face possible separation or non-judicial punishment. Evidently that wasn’t enough to deter Hopper.

 

 

Vanguard America reportedly formed in California in 2015 and, according to its website, is guided by the belief that that America has been “brought to its knees by decadence,” and “White Americans will be a minority in the nation they built” if “current trends continue.”  To join the group, a person must be “of at least 80% White/European heritage,” and not a criminal or addict of any kind, explains the group’s website. “Homosexuals, transexuals, adulterers, or any form of sexual degeneracy,” also need not apply.

Bannon Called Racist & Antisemite by Hearsay


John R. Houk

© November 18, 2016

steve-bannon-donald-trump

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is a Jewish civil rights organization that might lean a little to militancy in defense of Jews wronged by non-Jews. The ADL posted a huge character assassination on Steve Bannon – Trump’s Chief Strategist at the White House: “BANNON HAS EMBRACED THE ALT RIGHT, A LOOSE NETWORK OF WHITE NATIONALISTS AND ANTI-SEMITES”.

 

Four/fifths of this article is as anti-Bannon as one can be. Here are some excerpts:

 

The alt right is a loose network of individuals and groups that promote white identity and reject mainstream conservatism in favor of politics that embrace implicit or explicit racism, anti-Semitism and white supremacy. Often by leveraging social media and the Internet, alt right adherents express opposition to multiculturalism, immigration and often claim that there is a Jewish conspiracy to advocate for “white genocide.”  Bannon “proudly” told a reporter at the 2016 Republican National Convention “we’re the platform for the alt right.” In the same interview in Mother Jones magazine, he denied that the alt right is inherently racist or anti-Semitic, although a vast majority of people affiliated with that movement hold racist and anti-Semitic views.  In addition, under Bannon, Breitbart News published an article co-authored by Milo Yiannopoulos, a figure who is associated with the alt right, that played down the racism of some of the alt right’s main ideologues.  In The Daily Beast in August 2016, alt right figure Richard Spencer, said:

 

Breitbart has elective affinities with the alt-right and the alt-right has clearly influenced Breitbart. In this way, Breitbart has acted as a ‘gateway’ to alt-right ideas and writers.”

 

Bannon has also been embraced by white supremacists for his views in recent days. Numerous well-known white supremacists weighed in on President-elect Trump’s appointment of Bannon as his chief strategist. David Duke called the selection of Bannon “excellent,” adding that Bannon was “basically creating the ideological aspects of where we’re going.” Peter Brimelow, who runs the racist site VDare, said that the Bannon hire was “amazing.”  Jared Taylor of American Renaissance and Brad Griffin who runs the Occidental Dissent website both said that Bannon would help hold Trump to his campaign rhetoric on immigration and other issues.  Rocky Suhayda of the American Nazi Party voiced the same view.  In addition, Bannon has reportedly reached out to far-right figure and French political activist Marine Le Pen. She tweeted that he had invited her to work together with the new Trump administration.

 

… (Steven Bannon: Five Things to Know; Anti-Defamation League)

 

After linking Bannon to everything that can be White National Supremacist racism, the ADL in the article’s last point – kind-of – exonerates Steve Bannon of Antisemitism:

 

WE ARE NOT AWARE OF ANY ANTI-SEMITIC STATEMENTS FROM BANNON.

 

While there is a long fact pattern of evidence that Breitbart served as a platform for a wide range of bigotry and there is some controversy related to statements from Mr. Bannon’s divorce proceedings in 2007, we are not aware of any anti-Semitic statements made by Bannon himself.  In fact, Jewish employees of Breitbart have challenged the characterization of him and defended him from charges of anti-Semitism. Some have pointed out that Breitbart Jerusalem was launched during his tenure.

 

Nevertheless, Bannon essentially has established himself as the chief curator for the alt right. Under his stewardship, Breitbart has emerged as the leading source for the extreme views of a vocal minority who peddle bigotry and promote hate. (Ibid.)

 

The American Spectator demonstrates the hypocrisy of the Left labelling Steve Bannon an Antisemitic White Identity racist:

 

The things you hear when the left stops trending.

 

Steve Bannon is a white nationalist. Anderson Cooper touched me in the gym one time. Wolf Blitzer is an actual wolf, it’s true, I heard it from an ex-staffer’s best friend’s brother’s uncle who used to work next door to the building that is next door to CNN. Martha Raddatz was an extra in the movie They Live, Megyn Kelly has talent, CNN is fair and balanced, liberals are open-minded. Every Republican that gets into power is a descendant of Hitler, and of course none of these are true, but it is fun and I can keep going. That’s where we are as a media and a public that just says whatever it wants to, with not an ounce of factual or concrete evidence to back it up. But, hey, it’s trending, so it must be true. Here are few little things that we do know to be stone cold facts that you never ever hear reported by those I was touched by.

 

The behind-the-scenes financial leader of the Democrat party, George Soros, was an actual Nazi collaborator. You want to throw the word Nazi around? Well, so will this Jew. Yes, he was 14 years old during the war, and God I can’t imagine what he saw. But like 50 is the new 30 now, back then 14 was the old 44. He has said he feels no remorse or guilt, so I feel no remorse or guilt about saying it, and saying it, and saying it. He has given millions to anti-Israel/anti-Zionist organizations, not to mention that he was convicted of insider trading by the French Courts. He has also broken economies, and to paraphrase Paul Krugman, done so with glee. You want to call people Nazis and Hitler, or white nationalist, your de facto party leader was an actual, well I don’t want to be sued, so I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.

 

You want to accuse Mr. Bannon of being anti-Semitic and a white nationalist? Let’s talk about Time magazine, who made Hitler their Man of the Year in 1938. Let’s talk about the New York Times, who will never pass up the chance to portray Israel as being in the wrong — and, yes, anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism. Let’s talk about MSNBC, and Al Sharpton calling Jews interlopers and diamond merchants. He also led marches in which people chanted “death to Jews.” But if you really want to talk about white power, look no further than the gratefully deceased Robert Byrd, who was an actual white nationalist, pillow case and all. But maybe I’m actually being a little too factual for people on the left.

 

What exactly is the basis of the left’s arguments against Mr. Bannon? Is it that his wife, in a divorce, accused him of spewing anti-Semitic comments? Yeah, no one in a divorce has ever accused their spouses with false claims. It also never happens in the real world, with people making false claims like: Brian Williams, the Duke rape accuser, the Benghazi attack was caused by a video, John Kerry’s life, Hillary Clinton dodging sniper fire in Bosnia, and celebrities threatening to leave the country. This really does piss me off, and I don’t know Mr. Bannon, but I do know Breitbart. Like The American Spectator, and the Drudge Report, there are no better friends of Israel, and by proxy, the Jews, than these sites. But if the ADL really wants to go after people for being anti-Semites, let them go after the DNC. It was they who debated bringing up Bernie’s Judaism. It was they who debated whether or not bringing up Israel was a good or bad idea, like it’s 1935 all over again, and should we or should we not mention the horrible Jews. It was Obama officials who called Bibi a chickens**t, not Mr. Bannon. It’s Mr. Obama who attended Rev. Wright’s church and gladly welcomed Al Sharpton to the White House. These are facts, not divorce proceedings conjecture.

 

Yes, I am an avid reader of Breitbart, and maybe I missed the white nationalist section. Maybe there is a secret code that Jews weren’t given for that section. I guess it comes after Big HollywoodBreitbart Texas, and Breitbart Israel, where Aaron Klein, an Orthodox Jew, is bureau chief. I guess he wasn’t given access to the White Power section either. Do you really think Ivanka and Jared Kushner, being Orthodox Jews, would be okay with a white nationalist anti-Semite helping run their father and father-in-law’s presidency? I guess they don’t have the codes for the secret Breitbart section either.

 

READ THE REST (A Better Perspective: Steve Bannon Is a What? By JUDAH FRIEDMAN; American Spectator; 11/15/16 1:07 am)

 

I’ll be honest that I was a bit uninformed about Steve Bannon until the Left went ballistic about Trump’s staffing decision in the White House. ONCE AGAIN there is the appearance that Dems, the Left Stream Media and Leftists in general are using half-truths and downright lies to smear an opponent of the American Left agenda.

 

John Zmirak writes of the Leftist tactics to smear their opponents to eliminate them:

 

 

The Guilt-By-Association Method

 

These attempts to destroy Bannon follow a time-tested formula used against skeptics of globalism:

 

  1. Call Mr. X a racist or anti-Semite.

 

  1. When pressed for evidence, if there isn’t any, cite some old friend or one-time associate of Mr. X, who can be plausibly framed as prejudiced — in little munchable sound bites, shorn of context. Demand to know why Mr. X hasn’t already denouncedhis former associate. Muse publicly about how very suspicious that is.

 

  1. If some pundit defends Mr. X, publicly charge that he is enablingracism and anti-Semitism.

 

  1. Denounce that pundit, and demand that his friends and associates denounce him, too. Try to get him fired.

 

  1. When anyone else sticks his neck out for Mr. X, rinse and repeat.

 

 

Steve Bannon, Breitbart, and the Alt-Right

 

Now Bannon is being targeted because the website which he inherited and helped to build into a behemoth, Breitbart, has been called a venue for white supremacists and anti-Semites. And so, because he ran the place, Bannon is also at best a cynical opportunist, and at worse a hater himself. The evidence for these charges is …  somewhere between thin and none.

 

No one has cited an article that appeared at Breitbart whose contents can be plausibly construed as racist or anti-Semitic. No one has found a writer who published at Breitbart whose other writings, elsewhere, are racist or anti-Semitic. No one has produced any evidence of personal or political racism or anti-Semitism that Bannon himself engaged in. A number of conservatives who happen to be Jewish, such as David Horowitz, have come forward to deny that Bannon has ever shown any sign of prejudice. No one has offered any tangible evidence of racism, either.

 

So what does the charge come down to? Two things:

 

1) That Bannon once said that Breitbart was a platform for the “Alt-Right.” and

 

2) That some of the attention-grabbing headlines which Bannon approved could be considered “dog-whistles” intended to get racists and anti-Semites to read them and forward them around, increasing traffic on the site.

 

Let’s Look at the Evidence

 

The best analysis of these headlines was done by London-based writer Melanie Phillips, a brave and embattled defender of Israel and the rights of Jews in an increasingly hostile, sharia-friendly country. As she wrote on Facebook: “False allegations are made against Donald Trump and his new head of strategy Stephen Bannon, smearing them as antisemites, fascists and racists. Whether through laziness or ideological malice, these smears are recycled uncritically throughout both mainstream and social media.” Phillips addresses the controversial headlines as follows:

 

Exhibit A: an article entitled “Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew.”

That headline is said to be antisemitic. The author of the article, David Horowitz, has written however:

“In fact, neither Breitbart nor Bannon is responsible for that statement. A Jew is. I wrote the article, which was neither requested nor commissioned by Breitbart. And I wrote the headline: “Bill Kristol, Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew.

“I wrote the article when Kristol set out to lead the Never Trump movement, after Trump had secured the Republican nomination. I would write it again in a heartbeat. I would write it the same way and with the same headline. Bill Kristol and his friends betrayed the Republican Party, betrayed the American people, and betrayed the Jews when he set out to undermine Trump and elect the criminal Hillary Clinton. Obama and Hillary are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that launched the Arab drive to destroy Israel and push its Jews into the sea (that was their slogan).”

Exhibit B: an article which said of journalist Anne Applebaum [a Yale classmate of mine, and a fine Cold War scholar—J.Z.] that “hell hath no fury like a Polish, Jewish, American elitist scorned.” That phrase is said to be antisemitic.

The article attacked Applebaum for what it claimed was her “disinformation offensive against the anti-globalist right.” Central to its argument was a description of Applebaum’s circumstances and political world-view as the wife of the former Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski. It said: “Sikorski desperately wanted to replace Baroness Catherine Ashton as EU foreign affairs spokesman. This bid died with the exposure of the Civic Platform corruption. This turn of events ended Applebaum’s dream of being Poland’s first Jewish-American first lady. And hell hath no fury like a Polish, Jewish, American elitist scorned”.

There was nothing gratuitous or innately offensive about this Jewish reference any more than the references to her being Polish or American. It was simply another biographical detail in a highly personal piece. The claim that this was “antisemitic” is absurd.

  • The charge of racism.

After the murder in 2015 of nine black worshippers in a Charleston church by a man who posed with a Confederate flag, an article attacking the left for cynically exploiting this tragedy to attack conservatism, tradition and the south.

The author said the left had rewritten history. “The epitome of everything they detest and fear is the Confederate Flag, so that is now the target of a hate campaign so fanatical and irrational as to seem barely sane.”

The insanity has gone one stage further; the left has extended this hate campaign to the website’s chief executive, smearing him as a racist for running this article merely criticising the left for its hatred and lies.

  • The charge of Islamophobia

Breitbart has run numerous pieces exposing Islamist aggression and sexual violence. For this it has been falsely accused of anti-Muslim prejudice by those who wish to censor facts which it is overwhelmingly in the public interest to report.

  • The charge that it has promoted the “alt-right.”

This term is being used as a smear in itself. It makes no distinction between the legitimate populist movement for western cultural identity to which millions who voted for both Trump and Brexit subscribe, and neo-Nazis and white supremacists who have leeched onto that populist movement — whether to legitimise themselves or to make trouble for the populists through “guilt by association” isn’t clear.

An article about the “alt-right” on Breitbart itself noted that those who use these Nazi types to tarnish the alt-right movement should, to be consistent, use Islamist killers to tarnish all Muslims or Black Lives Matter to tarnish all black people. Of course they would think that preposterous, but they use this tactic against their political enemies. The authors went on:

“The politics of identity, when it comes from women, LGBT people, blacks and other non-white, non-straight, non-male demographics is seen as acceptable — even when it descends into outright hatred. Any discussion of white identity, or white interests, is seen as a heretical offense. … Even for us — a gay man of Jewish descent and a mixed-ethnic half-Pakistani — the dangers of writing on this topic loom large. Though we do not identify with the alt-right, even writing an article about them is akin to prancing through a minefield.”

 

Racism and Globalism: Equal and Opposite Heresies

 

Of course, there are some people out there who really are racists, anti-Semites, or some other variety of anti-Christian extremist. Some white nationalists today have gone as far as calling to keep abortion legal to lower the non-white birth rate — you know, as eugenicist Margaret Sanger tried to do when she founded Planned Parenthood. Such twisted, hate-goaded people ought to be shunned. One of the READ ENTIRETY (Steve Bannon: Bigot, Cynic or Brave Contrarian? By JOHN ZMIRAK; The Stream; 11/16/16)

 

Much like the character assassination in the past by Leftists against Sarah Palin and Donald Trump before the election, Steve Bannon is a part of that Leftist tactic.

 

The inspiration for these thoughts comes from Americans for Limited Government (AGL) noting that the ADL has retracted its Antisemite charge against Steve Bannon.

ADL backs off Bannon smear: ‘Not aware of any anti-Semitic statements made by Bannon’

Americans for Limited Government

 

Stephen Bannon and Breitbart News owed apology.

 

Nov. 17, 2016, Fairfax, Va.–Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement condemning the Anti-Defamation League for finally revealing that “we are not aware of any anti-Semitic statements made by [Stephen] Bannon” four days after smearing Bannon as “a man who presided over the premier website of the Alt Right, a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists”:

 

“The Anti-Defamation League has engaged in the most partisan libelous smear campaign imaginable against Stephen Bannon based on their own political prejudices and bias. One would expect ADL to actually look at the record prior to defaming someone who has proven to not only not be an anti-Semite, but to be a true friend of Israel. After four days of obscene character assassination of Bannon and Breitbart News, ADL has been forced to admit that there is no evidence that Bannon has ever made any anti-Semitic comments. This should provide a cautionary tale for the media that all too often engages in ready, fire, aim narratives unsupported by facts when talking about people they disagree with.

 

“Everyone in the media who reported this without first checking and ADL in particular owe Stephen Bannon and Breitbart News a front-page apology for their reckless political smear job.

 

“It is absolutely fair to have a public policy discussion based upon real statements and positions taken by public figures. But this discourse is destroyed by the left’s continued insistence that anyone who disagrees with them is by definition a racist, bigot, anti-Semitic, white supremacist. At a time when the entire media needs to engage in thorough self-examination to determine how they got so far off course, these false attacks on Bannon serve as the prosecution’s Exhibit A in exposing that the left is composed of nothing more than hacks undeserving of the moniker news.”
