Charlottesville Violent Participants Pt TWO

On Wednesday 8/16/17, I posted Part ONE which I took a look at the racist participants of the Charlottesville rumble of Neo-Nazis, KKK and White Supremacist Nationalists spewing their odious ideology using the excuse of preserve the American history embodied by the Confederacy.

 

Clearly these White Supremacist racists were more interested in odious propaganda than in preserving history. Check out the racist sloganeering a couple of days before the Charlottesville VA rumble at nearby University of Virginia:

A group of white nationalists sparked outrage on a college campus in Virginia on Friday after the marched with torches across campus while chanting Nazi expressions.

The demonstrators marched on the campus grounds at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville late Friday as precursor to a Saturday protest planned to publicly oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

Marches could be heard chanting slogans including “white lives matter” and “you will not replace us.” Others could be heard chanting “blood and soil,” a well-known Nazi rallying cry. Police eventually declared the protest an unlawful assembly and both protesters and counter protesters reported being pepper sprayed.

Some videos captured at the scene appeared to show counter protesters clashing with the white nationalists.

Ergo, the racist march at U of V seems like incitement practice in Charlottesville.

 

AND YET, the Left-Wing Counter-Protesters were at best infiltrated by violent Antifa/Black Lives Matter rumblers or at worst were the leaders of the rumbling Left.

 

In any case Leftist rumblers came just as armed as the racist White Supremacists. So, let’s look at Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM).

VIDEO: Antifa Exposed – Newly Press

I found this exposé of Antifa on the Facebook page called “Newly Press”. (http://tinyurl.com/y754ycpp)

 

The undercover narrator is Joey Salads (sounds like it could be a pseudonym). With the one-sided reporting on the Charlottesville Rumble just looking at racist White Supremacists, it is good to remember that Communist anarchists were engaging in violence as well.

 

Racism is evil! BUT Communism is evil too!

 

From the New American:

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Police across the United States are being forced to deal with a new hard-Left, communist-derived movement organized under the code word “Antifa,” standing for “Anti-Fascist.”

 

The violent, confrontational nature of Antifa anarchists presents a challenge to U.S. law enforcement that is unprecedented; they reject the free speech principles upon which civil discourse depends, while seeking to achieve the demise of the U.S. Constitution, as it holds as illegitimate any compromise with their communist worldview.

 

The Antifa movement roots in Weimar Republic Germany

 

While the Antifa movement is anarchic in nature, it owes its birth to the Communist Party’s opposition to the Nazi fascist movement in post-World War I Germany.

 

1930s fascism is best explained by Jonah Goldberg. In his 2008 book Liberal Fascism, he points out that fascism is a phenomenon of the political Left, in that communists and fascists were “closely related, historical competitors for the same constituents.” In a key paragraph applying these principles to American fascism, Goldberg wrote:

 

Much like the Nazi movement, liberal fascism had two faces: the street radicals and the establishment radicals. In Germany, the two groups worked in tandem to weaken middle-class resistance to the Nazis’ agenda. In the previous chapter we saw how the liberal fascists of the SDS and the Black Panther movements rose up to terrorize the American middle class. In the remainder of this chapter — and the next — we will explain how the “suit-and-tie radicals” of the 1960s, people like Hillary Clinton and her friends, use this terror to expand the power and scope of the state and above all to change the public attitude toward the state as the agent of social progress and universal caring and compassion.

The Antifa movement in the U.S. is a return to the communist paramilitary riot tactics developed to fight the Brownshirts of the Weimar Republic. The goal was to terrorize middle-class Germans into rejecting the Nazis who had embraced the social-welfare programs of prior regimes.

 

 

In what was branded as a “DisruptJ20” protest, some 1,000 Antifa thugs broke windows at Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Bank of America, as well as in commercial buildings in downtown Washington. Antifa rioters flooded streets, blocked traffic, burned trash in the streets, and broke windshields of passing cars. They threatened to attack inauguration attendees on the streets, while shouting a continuous flow of angry, vulgar, and confrontational in-your-face insults.

 

 

The militant or radical Left as described by Lennard has little — if anything — in common with the traditional liberal politics of Democrats such as John F. Kennedy and Hubert H. Humphrey in the 1960s. She [i.e. Natasha Lennard] continued:

 

As organizers from anti-fascist research and news site Antifa NYC told The Nation: “Antifa combines radical left-wing and anarchist politics, revulsion at racists, sexists, homophobes, anti-Semites, and Islamophobes, with the international anti-fascist culture of taking to the streets and physically confronting the brownshirts of white supremacy, whoever they may be.” As with fascisms, not all anti-fascisms are the same, but the essential feature is that anti-fascism does not tolerate fascism; it would give it no platform for debate.

 

 

Lennard made it clear that Antifa radicals are READ ENTIRETY (How the Violent Hard-Left “Antifa” Movement Copies Communists in Weimar Republic Germany; By Jerome R. Corsi; New American; 8/15/17)

 

Ben Shapiro on Antifa:

 

… Antifa is a loosely connected band of anti-capitalist protesters generally on the far left who dub themselves “anti-fascist” after their compatriots in Europe. They’ve been around in the United States since the 1990s, protesting globalization and burning trash cans at World Trade Organization meetings. But they’ve kicked into high gear over the past two years: They engaged in vandalism in violence, forcing the cancelation of a speech by alt-right popularizer Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California, Berkeley; a few months later, they attacked alt-right demonstrators in Berkeley; they attacked alt-right demonstrators in Sacramento, California, leading to a bloody street fight; they threw projectiles at police during President Trump’s inauguration; they attacked pro-Trump free-speech demonstrators in Seattle last weekend. They always label their opponents “fascists” in order to justify their violence.

 

In Charlottesville, Antifa engaged in street violence with the alt-right racists. As in Weimar, Germany, fascists flying the swastika engaged in hand-to-hand combat with Antifa members flying the communist red. And yet, the media declared that any negative coverage granted to Antifa would detract from the obvious evils of the alt-right. Sheryl Gay Stolberg of The New York Times tweeted in the midst of the violence, “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.” After receiving blowback from the left, Stolberg then corrected herself. She said: “Rethinking this. Should have said violent, not hate-filled. They were standing up to hate.”

 

Or perhaps Antifa is a hateful group itself. But that wouldn’t fit the convenient narrative Antifa promotes and the media buy: that the sole threat to the republic comes from the racist right. Perhaps that’s why the media ignored the events in Sacramento and Berkeley and Seattle — to point out the evils of Antifa might detract from the evils of the alt-right.

 

 

Here’s the moral solution, as always: Condemn violence and evil wherever it occurs. The racist philosophy of the alt-right is evil. The violence of the alt-right is evil. The communist philosophy of Antifa is evil. So is the violence of Antifa. If we are to survive as a republic, we must call out Nazis but not punch them; we must stop providing cover to anarchists and communists who seek to hide behind self-proclaimed righteousness to participate in violence. Otherwise, we won’t be an honest or a free society. READ ENTIRETY (The Group That Got Ignored in Charlottesville; By Ben Shapiro; Creators.com; 8/16/17)

 

CSC Media Group looks a bit closer at Antifa ideology:

 

 

“Anti-fascism” became the official ideology of Stalinist parties, although anarchists, and migrant activists have also continued to identify as anti-fascists. The movement would continue through the end of World War II and right on through the Cold War.

 

The Resurgence

 

It would have an almost rebirth, or resurgence in the 1990s after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Once again the communists would fight against what they saw as right-wing fascist groups. Keep in mind, although these groups were fighting fascism, it wasn’t fighting fascism for freedom. Rather they wanted to replace it with communism.

 

 

The End Game

 

Now, the communist and the anarchists don’t have the same goals, other than fighting the powers that hold them back. They’ve decided that they will fight one enemy at a time. When that one is defeated they will fight the other ones standing next to them. They will continue to fight until only one is left standing.

 

 

… One of these groups is known as “Bamn” “By any means necessary.” One of their leaders is a school teacher in California. This is possibly why so many of the protests have been concentrated along the west coast.

 

 

… There are slogans like “antifascism means attack” not only against neonazis but also against the civil and capitalist system.

Here are two articles worth looking at to understand the evil and un-American the Antifa Communists are to Liberty and Freedom:

 

 

 

Black Lives Matter (BLM)

From Accuracy in Media:

 

The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. Its agitation has provoked police killings and other violence, lawlessness and unrest in minority communities throughout the U.S. If allowed to continue, that agitation could devolve into anarchy and civil war. The BLM crowd appears to be spoiling for just such an outcome.

 

 

Leftist Origins

 

Exploiting blacks to promote Marxist revolution is an old tactic. … Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn regarded Barack Obama, whose political career they sponsored, as a tool—a puppet—to use against white America. Obama’s legacy at home will certainly include more racial division.

 

[BLM Founder Photo not a part of AIM article]

 

Garza, Cullors and Tometi all work for front groups of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), one of the four largest radical Left organizations in the country. The others are the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS). Nelini Stamp’s ACORN—now rebranded under a variety of different names—works with all four organizations, and Dream Defenders is backed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center and others.

 

FRSO is a hereditary descendant of the New Communist Movement, which was inspired by Mao and the many communist revolutions throughout the world in the 1960s and 1970s. FRSO split into two separate groups in 1999, FRSO/Fight Back and FRSO/OSCL (Freedom Road Socialist Organization/Organizaci?n Socialista del Camino para la Libertad). Black Lives Matter and its founders are allied with the latter group. Future references to FRSO in this article refer to FRSO/OSCL.

 

 

BLM is one of many projects undertaken by the FRSO. Except for the website, blacklivesmatter.com, there is no actual organization. The website implicitly acknowledges this, describing #BlackLivesMatter as “an online forum intended to build connections between Black people and our allies to fight anti-Black racism, to spark dialogue among Black people, and to facilitate the types of connections necessary to encourage social action and engagement.”

 

FRSO membership is disproportionately represented by blacks, gays and women, and self-consciously emphasizes those issues. Garza, who penned a “Herstory” of BLM, is a “queer,” black veteran activist involved in …

 

 

Cullors describes herself as a “working class, queer, black woman.” …

 

Cullors was trained by Eric Mann, a former Weather Underground leader who exhorts followers to become “anti-racist, anti-imperialist” activists. Mann runs another FRSO front, the Labor/Community Strategy Center. Like most professional leftists, he makes good money—over $225,000 annually—living in “the system” he advocates destroying.

 

Tometi is the daughter of illegal aliens from Nigeria. While in college, she worked for the ACLU defending illegal aliens against “vigilantes” opposed to illegal immigration. She is currently the executive director of Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI).

 

 

Mainstream funders have helped fund BLM as well. For example, United Way has partnered with A&E and iHeartMedia to create Shining the Light Advisors, a committee of “nationally known experts and leaders in racial and social justice,” to oversee grant disbursements. These “advisors” include such radicals as Van Jones, Advancement Project co-director Judith Browne Dianis, and Rinku Sen, president of the Applied Research Center (ARC).

 

 

Its wide network of affiliates and partner organizations like CPUSA and ACORN allows BLM to turn out large crowds. Many participate simply to protest, commit violence, loot or all three.

 

 

Fithian echoes Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven—creators of the infamous Cloward/Piven Crisis Strategy—who spent decades attempting to provoke ghetto blacks to riot, because “Poor people can advance only when ‘the rest of society is afraid of them.’” …

 

 

Islamist organizations have also jumped on the BLM bandwagon, reminding us of the unholy alliance that exists –

between them and the radical Left. In September 2015, the Muslim Brotherhood front-group Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) joined BLM activists in storming California Governor Jerry Brown’s office. CAIR also participated in the Ferguson protests. Meanwhile ISIS is recruiting American blacks for its cause. 

 

Intellectual Genealogy of Black Lives Matter

 

We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth… We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”—Vladimir Lenin

 

That quote from the Soviet Union’s first leader captures the entire essence of the Left’s strategy. No matter what the issue, no matter what the facts, the Left advances a relentless, hate-filled narrative that America is irredeemably evil and must be destroyed as soon as possible. The BLM movement is only the latest but perhaps most dangerous variant on this divisive theme.

 

 

Obama’s favorite Harvard professor Derrick Bell devised Critical Race Theory, which exemplifies Lenin’s strategy as applied to race. According to Discover the Networks:

 

“Critical race theory contends that America is permanently racist to its core, and that consequently the nation’s legal structures are, by definition, racist and invalid … members of “oppressed” racial groups are entitled—in fact obligated—to determine for themselves which laws and traditions have merit and are worth observing…”

 

Bell’s theory is in turn an innovation of Critical Theory—developed by philosophers of the communist Frankfurt School. …

 

 

The “White Skin Privilege” idea was created in 1967 by Noel Ignatiev, an acolyte of Bell and professor at Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute (Du Bois was a Communist black leader who helped found the NAACP). Ignatiev was a member of CPUSA’s most radical wing, the Maoist/Stalinist Provisional Organizing Committee to Reconstitute the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (POC). POC was the intellectual forerunner to FRSO.

 

 

But do not be confused; “White” does not mean white. “White” in radical construction means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government and American traditional culture and values. By definition, these beliefs are irredeemably evil and anyone who aligns with them is “white” in spirit and thus equally guilty of “white crimes.” Ignatiev still teaches, now at the Massachusetts College of Art.

 

The Black Lives Matter movement carries this narrative to unprecedented heights, claiming that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers” and leftist Democrats, intent on making blacks into cannon fodder for the revolution.

When President Trump in a news conference had essentially what next lauding American history will be taken down:

 

Trump said that “this week… it’s Robert E. Lee. And, I heard Stonewall Jackson is coming down.”

 

“Is George Washington [coming down] next week. And, is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?” Trump said, noting both American icons were slaveholders in Virginia. (‘Is It George Washington Next Week?’: Trump Blasts Monument Removals as ‘Changing History’; Fox News; 8/15/17 4:58pm)

 

The New Zeal blog reports American historical monuments that had nothing to do with the Confederacy are being defaced:

 

Well, that didn’t take long. I predicted when all of this racist crap started that the lefty communists would move quickly from confederate statues onto other targets and here we go. The Lincoln Memorial was defaced yesterday with the ‘F’ word and other graffiti. Then, so-called Social Justice Warriors set their sights on the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Hundreds demanded that a “racist” statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt be taken down. I strongly suggest they don’t do that. And the communists and radicals won’t stop there… they have a huge list of targets across the nation, including anything to do with the Founding Fathers.

One of the BLM founders – Alicia Garza – is paraphrased as stipulating at Mizzou U on 2/18/16:

 

“The goal of the Constitution was to make an agreement between factions known as states, which were built on the backs of black slaves.” She described constitutionalism as racist, saying: “The people vowing to protect the Constitution are vowing to protect white supremacy and genocide.” (The Real Agenda Behind Black Lives Matter; By  GERALD FLURRY; The Trumpet; 5/2016)

 

The influence of Marxists Cloward and Piven on Black Lives Matter:

 

In 1966, sociologists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven called for the overloading of the U.S. welfare system to force the potential collapse of our Democratic Republic government and end poverty by the government “guaranteeing an annual income for all Americans.”  This is Communism–a godless human government where the state is the ultimate entity to be worshiped and obeyed.

 

Fifty years later, are we seeing Cloward and Piven’s dream become reality?  Our nation is being divided and overwhelmed economically and socially, and some feel we are on the brink of becoming a Marxist state.

 

Cloward-Piven believed in forcing political change through orchestrated crisis and not surprisingly, they were both members of the Democratic Socialists of America. The two were also involved in the birthing of radical organizations such as ACORN, which has branched out into several organizations including some in support of Black Lives Matter, according to journalist, James Simpson.

 

 

This report examines in detail, for the first time, how communist groups have manipulated the cause of Black Lives Matter, and how money from liberal foundations has made it all possible.

 

 

…The radical Left model is based on alliances of many organizations that are working on separate issues but dedicated ultimately to the same thing: overthrowing our society in order to replace it with a hardcore socialist (read communist) one.

 

The goal is to present the appearance of a formidable mass of organizations. Some are large, but many are little more than a website or Facebook page. When necessary, they can all come together to promote the cause du jour. The deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and others were mere pretexts for socialist agitation. The real enemy is “the system.” This is why the BLM crowd denies the facts of those cases. As Stamp has said, “we are actually trying to change the capitalist system we have today because it’s not working for any of us.”

 

READ ENTIRETY (BLACK LIVES MATTER, CAPITALISM, AND COMMUNISM IN AMERICA; Posted by Stand Up For The Truth; StandUpForTheTruth.com; 7/18/16)

 

Here is an interesting insight from a blogger that has been inactive since April 2017:

 

[I]t isn’t surprising that Black Lives Matter is a communist organization—but the type of communism they subscribe to is. They are conservative communists attempting to fold the progressive movement back into traditional Marxism.

 

… BLM is rebirthing the traditional class struggle, reframing it in terms of black and white.

 

The policy platform proposed by BLM in August did nothing to hide this traditionalism. Its calls for collective ownership of resources, banks, and businesses, a highly progressive income tax, a guaranteed minimum income, and government jobs are lifted straight from the pages of Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto.” Here are two excerpts for comparison:

 

“Communist Manifesto”: Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

 

 

Black vs. White Is the New Proletariat vs. Bourgeoisie

 

But more important is BLM’s use of the black versus white dichotomy. While race has a long history as a wedge issue, BLM incorporates nearly all forms of modern marginalization—“including but not limited to those who are women, queer, trans, femmes, gender nonconforming, Muslim, formerly and currently incarcerated, cash poor and working class, differently-abled, undocumented, and immigrant”—into blackness. Conversely, whiteness represents all forms of privilege (economic, social, and legal) throughout the platform.

 

BLM has simply substituted Marx’s class conflict between the proletariat and bourgeoisie for class conflict between blackness and whiteness. …

 

The black vs. white dichotomy creates a permanent enemy class, to which defection is always incomplete. And unlike the proletariat class consciousness, race consciousness already exists, making mobilization easier. …

 

Why Black Lives Matter Rejects Intersectionality

 

Where Marxism prioritizes the class struggle between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat (or between black and white), the modern theory of intersectionality prioritizes differences between identity politic groups. It posits that while white women face marginalization for their sex, they gain privilege from their race. Conversely, black men gain privilege from their sex while facing marginalization because of their race. Black women experience “double jeopardy,” suffering from both sex and race. This creates a hierarchy of oppression that is in constant flux as new forms of marginalization are recognized. Intersectional theory fractures the class conflict from two opposed groups into an unlimited number of conflicts within the hierarchy of oppression.

 

 

BLM treats intersectional conflicts and “non-black people of color” much the same way Marx treated the reserve army of labor and petty bourgeoisie: as auxiliaries to the proletariat and bourgeoisie conflict. In their glossary, BLM defines the term “non-black people of color” as intended “to provide greater context to the distinct and unique oppression imposed on Black people, while recognizing the struggles of other people of color.” Which is to say that while intersectional conflicts exist, the Black vs. White conflict takes priority.

 

READ ENTIRETY (How Black Lives Matter Is Bringing Back Traditional Marxism; I Have A Dream; 9/29/16)

 

Currently Antifa Communists and BLM Communists seem to have linked their agendas together fomenting violent revolution through race baiting. I have to wonder if the Obama Administration clandestinely empowered these anarchist revolutionaries. Many Conservatives have used this moniker for Barack Hussein Obama: Race-Baiter-in-Chief.

 

I also have to wonder if Obama’s Organizing for Action Deep State group (See Also HERE) has some clandestine linkage to BLM or even Antifa for that matter.

 

It is clear the American Left pulling out all the unConstitutional stops to destroy the Liberty and Freedom our Founding Fathers enabled during and after the Revolutionary War to form the greatest Republic the world has seen. If the Left has its way – Antifa and BLM are Marxist tools – the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution will be ripped up and placed on the forgotten ash heap of history.

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.

Antifa v. Alt-Right in Charlottesville — and America

Antifa v. Alt-Right in Charlottesville — and America

The coming battles between sociopathic Leftists — the socialist “anti-fascists” and the “alternate-right” anarchists.

The Patriot Post

 

“It is the manners and spirit of a people, which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.” —Thomas Jefferson (1787)

 

Liberals ME & Liberals in USA

 

Last weekend, according to NBC Chicago, there were nine people killed and more than 30 wounded in gunfights on the streets of Chicago — and those figures don’t include the deaths and injuries from other weapons within that Democrat Party pit.

 

This is a recurring tragedy in Chicago, and yet it’s highly probable that 99.999% of Americans have not heard about those deaths. Indeed, even though most of the murdered were black, who beyond the immediate family and friends of the deceased can name a single unfortunate victim of all the hatred and violence that is commonplace there?

 

The reason their names and faces are anonymous is that their lives have no value as political fodder for the Demo/media propaganda machine or its so-called “Black Lives Matter” constituency. Those victims are simply tossed onto the pile of 430 homicides in Chicago thus far this year, to the horror of those of us who believe that “all lives matter.”

 

Now consider this: Last weekend, there was one person murdered in Charlottesville, Virginia, by an Ohio man, and the whole world knows the name of that unfortunate victim.

 

Charlottesville is, as anyone who has been there can attest, a great town. In January, I declined an invitation to attend the Trump inaugural fanfare, opting instead that weekend to meet my son in Charlottesville for a few days visiting friends and re-visiting historic sites.

 

This area is, in my opinion, the richest historic region in America.

 

Charlottesville is the site of Declaration of Independence author Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello home, which sits just above the town, and his beloved University of Virginia. Just beyond Monticello is James Monroe’s Highland home place. To the north is Montpelier, home of our Constitution’s author, James Madison. To the west is Lexington, home of Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Academy — and burial place of Virginia sons Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Northeast is George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and the home of George Mason. To the east are Richmond, Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown — the final battle site of the American Revolution.

 

Despite being the epicenter of such extraordinary history, Charlottesville is also lorded over by a disgraceful mayor, Mike Signer, and his Leftist city council — a group of Berkeley wannabes who have led local historical purges of Thomas Jefferson and Robert E. Lee.

 

It was the planned removal of a small statue of the latter from a city park that was the catalyst for the obscene riots last weekend in this otherwise quiet and idyllic town.

 

That riot was a clash between sociopathic forces — the antifa, the ironically self-styled “anti-fascists” leading the Leftist intifada against anyone supporting Liberty or any economic system other than socialism, and the alt-right, an anarcho-fascist fringe movement of white supremacists. Notably the alt-right racists had an ACLU-defended permit for their protest hate speech. The antifa socialists and black supremacists showed up in mass without a permit.

 

Thugs Clash in Charlottesville

 

Eight years of racial antagonism by Barack Obama and his radical regime led to mass riots in more than 20 American urban centers, fomented by Leftist groups operating under the banners of Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, antifa, et al. That violence erupted in Oakland, Akron and Pittsburgh in 2009; Santa Cruz, Oakland and Los Angeles in 2010; Oakland in 2011; Chicago and Anaheim in 2012; Brooklyn in 2013; Ferguson and New York City in 2014; Baltimore in 2015; Anaheim, Chicago, St. Paul, Milwaukee, Charlotte, Standing Rock, Oakland and Portland in 2016; and DC, Berkeley, Anaheim, Berkeley part 2, Berkeley part 3, Olympia and Portland in 2017.

 

While Republicans, Democrats and the mainstream media have correctly tagged one side of the hateful antagonists in Charlottesville as “white supremacists,” you won’t find any reference by any Democrat, or their Leftmedia propagandists, to the “black supremacists” who were at the center of, or significant participants in, all the aforementioned urban violence.

 

Nor did a single politico or media outlet rightly tag Micah X, who murdered five police officers in Dallas a year ago, a “black supremacist.” He was just the latest manifestation of the Democrats’ playbook, which endeavors to foment disunity to rally constituencies. To them, dead police officers are just collateral damage.

 

Remarkably, the riot in Charlottesville has already received more mass media bandwidth than the attempted mass assassination in June of multiple Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia, by a hate-filled Bernie Sanders supporter.

 

Perhaps “Virginia is [not] for Lovers” after all? Actually, Virginia is a great state when it’s not baiting anarchist haters.

 

Given the media feeding frenzy inspired by the riots in Charlottesville, allow me to impart a few observations.

 

First: Regarding President Donald Trump’s repeated condemnation of both the racists and the socialists

 

Assessing the violence, Charlottesville police chief Al Thomas noted, “Other groups [opposing the alt-right faction] began amassing along the street and in the park. Gradually, the crowd sizes increased along with aggressiveness and hostility of attendees toward one another. … We did have mutually combating individuals in the crowd.”

 

This mutual violence was evident to everyone present, and it was affirmed in real time by New York Times reporter Hawes Spencer, who observed, “Protesters maced each other, threw water bottles and urine balloons — some of which hit reporters — and generally beat the crap out of each other with flagpoles.”

 

However, Trump should not have dared to suggest that the violence was from both sides of the idiot line. According to the Leftmedia, the antifa groups are just a bunch of wholesome all-American “counter-protesters” defending our country against an epidemic of right-wing (Republican) hatred.

 

After concurring with the police chief and other observers about “mutually combating individuals,” Trump said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides. No matter our color, creed, religion or political party we are all Americans first.”

 

But that denunciation wasn’t sufficient for the Leftmedia — or for establishment Republicans, who knew full well that the Demo/MSM would label them as “soft on supremacists” because Trump dared to identify both ugly factions.

 

Sunday, the White House communications staff followed up with: “The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred and of course that includes white Supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups. He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.”

 

But even that was insufficient for the Leftmedia. Trump had failed to elevate the standing of the conflict to the level that best serves the Demo/MSM agenda and the need to cash in on the chaos for ad revenue and political contributions.

 

So Trump on Monday called a press confab and repeatedly condemned the racists in what was to be a unifying speech.

 

But that was too little too late for the Leftmedia.

 

MSM reports Trump Said

 

On Tuesday, in a contentious confrontation with MSM agitators, Trump dared again to suggest that the violence was mutual: “You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now: I think there is blame on both sides and I don’t have a doubt about it and you [reporters] don’t have a doubt about it either.”

 

He also condemned the removal of historic markers, saying, “This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s [statue is] coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, when does it stop?”

 

Of the Leftmedia “outrage” over Trump’s responses, Vice President Mike Pence said, “I take issue with the fact that many in the media … have spent an awful lot of time focusing on what the president said and criticisms of what the president said, instead of criticizing those who brought that hatred and violence to the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia.” He is correct.

 

Second: The Bannon problem

 

While I believe Trump’s response to the violence was measured — if very Trumpian — I also believe he has a problem on his staff by the name of Steve Bannon, chairman of his 2016 campaign and now his chief strategist.

 

Here’s the problem.

 

Jason Kessler is the white supremacist organizer of the “Unite the Right” protest in Charlottesville. He’s a University of Virginia graduate who lists on his résumé his last job as being a writer for “Daily Caller,” an online “conservative” news website co-founded in 2010 by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. For the record, despite the fact that I like Carlson’s commentary, our staff considers Daily Caller a well-funded titillation tabloid, and for that reason, it undermines the standing of genuine grassroots conservative publications. Indeed, as of this week, Daily Caller has scrubbed the commentary it hosted from Kessler.

 

Kessler’s colleague, Massachusetts native Richard Spencer, also a UVA graduate, was agitating the hatefest in Charlottesville.

 

Spencer is the founder of AlternativeRight.com, the alt-right homepage espousing, among other things, white supremacist views. After Trump’s election, Spencer led an alt-right conference group with “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!” chants. When Trump tapped Bannon to be a senior advisor, Spencer claimed he was in “the best possible position” to influence policy.

 

That brings me to Bannon himself, who took control of Breitbart News in 2012 after the death of Andrew Breitbart. Bannon did to Andrew’s popular website what Jeff Bezos is doing to the once-respectable Washington Post — adulterating its content to comport with extremist political views.

 

Breitbart News described Spencer’s website as the “center of alt-right thought,” and in 2016, Bannon declared Breitbart “the platform for the alt-right.” Spencer concurred, noting that Breitbart “has acted as a ‘gateway’ to alt-right ideas and writers.”

 

This, of course, doesn’t make Bannon or Trump “white supremacists.” Bannon, like Trump, has a propensity for shooting from the hip and saying stupid stuff. And most Trump supporters would have no idea what the “alt-right” is because, in fact, it’s nothing more than a minuscule fringe political identity group. But the Leftmedia would have you believe it’s the very foundation of the Republican Party.

 

In November 2016, Trump responded to questions about Bannon’s appointment, saying, “I’ve known Steve Bannon a long time. If I thought he was a racist, or alt-right … I wouldn’t even think about hiring him.”

 

But can you detect the problem here?

 

All you need to know about Bannon is that he does not have enough humility, in the interest of Trump’s agenda, to resign.

 

Third: Regarding the Orwellian trend of “historical cleansing” underway by Leftists

 

The “progressive” use of violence to force the removal of historical monuments from public spaces should concern Americans of all political stripes. This extremely dangerous trend by Leftists, like those sitting on the city council of historical hub Charlottesville, smacks of socialist Soviet “airbrushing” and the Maoist “Cultural Revolution.”

 

Longtime friend of The Patriot Post, distinguished George Mason University professor Walter Williams, has issued erudite warnings about the consequences of historical ignorance here and here, including the removal of historic markers to Confederate generals and the rewriting of American history.

 

The vast majority of Americans, including me, who strenuously object to tearing down and stamping out our historical heritage do not object because of some racist affinity. We object because this is our story, and because whitewashing it is an affront to American history and to our legacy of Liberty.

 

Predictably, seizing the mindless momentum, the Black Congressional Caucus issued demands for the first phase of monument removals in the U.S. Capitol building.

 

Booker T Washington quote on racism

 

As 20th century philosopher George Santayana concluded in his treatise, “The Life of Reason”: “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

 

English writer Aldous Huxley put it more succinctly: “That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.”

 

Fourth: The ACLU and Charlottesville Police

 

Notably, ACLU observers on Twitter were among the first to report that the Charlottesville police had stand-down orders, allowing the violence to escalate: “Clash between protesters and counter protesters. Police say, ‘We’ll not intervene until given command to do so.’” But that order never came.

 

This was affirmed by Fox News reporter Doug McKelway, who was in the middle of the combatants. “When the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate. I asked the guy who was in charge, ‘Where you going?’ He said, ‘We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.’ They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.”

 

If police officers are wholly unprepared for the level of violence, they should retreat. But this retreat looked more like the “stand-down” order that accelerated the 2015 Baltimore race riots.

 

Fifth: Who is funding antifa, Black Lives Matter and all the other Marxist/black supremacist groups that have emerged since 2008?

 

Judicial Watch is suing America-hating billionaire socialist George Soros for his funding records of Leftist political groups. Keep a sharp eye on the outcome of this lawsuit.

 

Finally, regarding the Republicans’ stampede to distance themselves from phony Leftist charges of racism, seeking to distance yourself from something already far removed actually feeds the narrative that maybe it is not so far removed.

 

To paraphrase a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “Republicans doth apologize too much, methinks.”

 

The Democrat Party and its Leftmedia outlets are colluding to publicize, and thus politicize, upcoming alt-right-versus-antifa venues for conflict in order to advance their agenda. In doing so, they hope to hang these riots around Republican necks.

 

But let’s be clear: Every drop of blood that’s shed in these riots — and there will be more of them — is on the hands of the Demo/MSM propaganda machine that is fomenting the disunity that propagates them — and Republicans had better start shining a light on that, as Donald Trump has done, rather than cowering behind a microphone.

There Can Only Be One America


When you see the American Left deliver unproven propaganda against President Trump or violent riots against a Conservative voice or fake police accusations, more than likely there is some form of a Communist agenda behind it.

There Can Only Be One America

 

By Justin O. Smith

America is at a dangerous crossroads, and all normal Americans, who love God, their families and their unalienable rights and Liberty, are necessarily going to have to eventually fight and decisively defeat the American totalitarian Left, that seeks our silence, obeisance and submission to their Marxist vision by any means necessary. The Left’s recently renewed ready use of violence to achieve their goals and their calls for the violent overthrow of our republic, as they riot and throw bricks, glass bottles containing M-80s and Molotov cocktails and attempt to burn our cities, leaves little choice. Either our government stops them, or it will fall to millions of armed American patriots defending their homes, their families and their lives, because the Leftist ideology only ensures that freedom is replaced with tyranny.

 

Although the Left constantly claims President Trump and his administration and supporters are “fascists”, Americans saw real live fascists, every bit as despicable and violent as the Brown Shirts of Nazi Germany, prior to Trump’s nomination and after the election. Various groups have gathered under the banner of Antifa, so-called “anti-fascists”, and they have prevented free speech on campuses and in cities across America, through riots and organized and George Soros-funded acts of violence, often incited by university professors who spread their hate for conservative America, from the University of Washington and Sacramento State to Clemson, Cal State Fullerton, UC Berkeley and points beyond.

VIDEO: What is Antifa?: Antifa Exposed

 

Posted by Jason Kessler

Published on Mar 13, 2017

 

The left-wing terrorist organization Antifa explained: from the masks they wear, the belief systems they follow, to the tactics they employ to enforce their agenda. Know their plans and be prepared to defend yourself with the knowledge you gain in this video.

It was Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister, who noted: “History is made in the street.” Get enough Brown Shirts to silence your opponents, and you can seize power.

 

Our side is growing and also prepared to be more politically militant …”, Yvette Felarca, of the Antifa terrorist organization By Any Means Necessary, told Al Jazeera, and she added, “If the movement continues building as large and powerfully in this direction, we can defeat Trump, his racist agenda, and get him out without waiting for the next election.”

 

A howling mob of Leftists stopped Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking at the University of Washington on Inauguration Day 2017, and later that month a Black Lives Matter “activist” spoke to an anti-Trump protest in Seattle and advocated for “killing the White House”.

 

On February 1st 2017, Occupy Oakland organized 1500 protesters to stop Yiannopoulos from speaking at the University of California at Berkeley, and even after they succeeded, they rioted. Black clad domestic terrorists threw bricks, beat suspected conservatives and Trump supporters, smashed windows and set fires.

 

Occupy Oakland later proclaimed: “We won this night. We will control the streets. We will liberate the land. We will fight fascists. We will dismantle the state. This is war.”

 

Does anyone recognize the irony at this point? Occupy Oakland stopped free speech where anti-war leader Mario Savo and his followers started the Free Speech Movement in 1964. Savo wanted a ban on campus political activities lifted, and he demanded freedom of speech and academic freedom.

 

Next in Antifa’s sights is Ann Coulter, a highly acclaimed journalist and an American patriot. Ms. Coulter plans to honor an invitation from the Young Americans Foundation to speak at UC Berkeley on Thursday April 27th, despite the speech being canceled by UC Berkeley. Antifa is threatening to do anything it can to prevent Ms. Coulter from speaking.

 

It is worth noting that during the April 15th free speech event at Berkeley, which was organized by independent journalist Lauren Southern, Antifa’s tactics didn’t work so well. They were promptly whipped by some anti-communist Freedom Loving Oath Keepers and bikers, honest-to God red-blooded Americans, who showed up ready for the fight.

 

These throngs of criminals and domestic terrorists clad in black use their signature chaos and havoc-laden paramilitary “Black Bloc” tactics to give the appearance of solidarity for any cause they support, and while they claim to be anarchists, they are not. Ideologically they are the descendants of the New Left uprisings of the 1960s, the Weather Underground [Bill Ayers] and the Black Panthers. They love the authoritarian State, as long as it is used to advance a Marxist agenda and browbeat the people into submission to achieve their desired goals. They are Marxists.

 

This rabble in the streets function as the strong-arm wing of the heavily left-leaning Progressive Democratic Party, whose own vitriol gave rise to much of this violence. The Democratic Party and its apologists aren’t too bothered by the riots, just as long as it’s only conservatives, Christians and Republicans who are harmed. If violence is what it takes for them to prevail, they have no problem resorting to it. This is their message to conservative America on the price of dissent where Leftists hold sway.

 

Matthew Vadum, author of Subversion, Inc, stated: [Antifa] “are nihilistic thugs who want to destroy everything that is good in America. They’re a leftist counterpart to skinheads and neo-Nazis. They call themselves anti-fascists but they use fascistic tactics against their targets. Just as Hitler’s Sturmabteilung, or SA, beat up and terrorized political opponents …”.

 

After the Berkeley riots, Yiannopoulos lamented: “America, of all places, now, is seeing political violence in response to ideas … Is this the new normal? Riots in the streets …?”

 

The Left hates conservative America and the U.S. Constitution, because we have prevented them from dictating every minute detail of our personal lives. We prevented these anti-American communists and militant leftists from fundamentally transforming this wonderful and exceptional America of ours into the hellish utopian totalitarian order of their fevered imaginings, and for our defiance we must be broken, beaten or even killed.

 

For those of us who oppose Leftist nihilism, it is impossible to reconcile with those who seek control over each individual’s life completely. No argument they present justifies eradicating capitalism. Must we accept their assertion that the greatest problems for black Americans are caused by white racism and white privilege? We have nothing in common with those who label us misogynistic and homophobic over our concerns for the traditional American family, and we certainly will never accept the notion that America is imperialistic and immoral simply due to Her defense of the country.

 

How can America avoid conflict, when the New Left — the real fascists — view everyone to the right of Bernie Sanders as racists and fascists? This is the Left’s Bolshevik moment as they attempt to gain momentum for a revolution.

 

There can only be one America, a country that respects everyone’s rights and individual liberty. There will be no truce with domestic terrorists, who act violently towards innocent men, women and children, young and old, for the sake of altering our government. They have not any right to exist in a free society, and they must be dealt with accordingly, or matters will only become worse. Normally peaceful Americans, millions who swore oaths to protect and defend the Constitution and America, will not allow these outrages to continue, and they will not see our God-given rights undone by Leftist thugs and a failed communist vision.
