NYC ANTIFA | Culture of resistance against fascism!

Fasc Pepes beware

If our blog has looked a little slow recently, it might be because the work of an antifascist is overwhelming in 2016. Weve also taken to updating our twitter account more frequently, as we are moving towards the blog being mostly for original content.

After the repression against Occupy and Arab Spring movements in 2010, global political trends have backslid into deeply regressive populism. The ascendance of Trumpism and the Alt-Right in the US are a result of the same fascist impulses that have solidified the power of Viktor Orban in Hungary, Putin in Russia, and Erdogan in Turkey and convinced thousands to join the cause of ISIS.

As most realize that our only electoral alternative to neo-Nationalists and alt-right creeps isthe continuation of the States atrocities at current levels with Clinton, we urge our readers to get organized now. Create or join an antifascist group to monitor your local Trumpists. Link up with immigration advocacy groups and start considering how to block ICE raids. Link up with prisoners who are struggling for their lives.Attend Black Lives Matter demonstrations.Use the fear and outrage of the election season to keep you going, and remind yourself, whatever you do, that voting (and mouthing-off on social media) is never enough!

Heres whatsbeen happening in the New York area:

Brooklyn Commons triples down on support of anti-Semitism

Far Right conspiracy hack Christopher Bollyn had a lot of trouble with his September tour of the United States. Due to his obvious anti-Semitic agenda, venues in Connecticut, New York, and Washington, DC cancelled his bookings once they were made aware of Bollyns history of writing for White Nationalist papers, and working with David Duke and other holocaust deniers.

Nonetheless, one venue owner doubled down: Melissa Ennen of the Brooklyn Commons, a space better known for hosting radical and progressive projects such as Jacobin magazine and the Marxist Education Project. She defended her decision on the basis of free speech; in a statement now removed, Ennen said,I agree that all forms of racism should have no place in leftist spaces, but in my opinion, to get to the root of racist thinking, confrontation works better than censorship.

Local antifascists and other activists decided to take Ennens advice, and on September 7th, when Bollyn was escorted into the venue with hired security, a group of mostly anti-Zionist jewish protesters was waiting. Employees of the Commons called the police when one of them was spit upon for calling a protesters a fat bitch. Attendees interrupted Bollyns talk with questions, but were thrown out security. During the short Q&A, anattendee asked Bollyn about his blatant anti-Semitism; his response was to point to the exit, and say Theres the door. The crowd included

The Commons promoted the event on their website, Facebook, and hung posters in the Cafe itself.

Gabriel Brown of NATA and Cathleen McGuire, who loves to book holocaust deniers in left-wing spaces.

In the coming days, many projects pulled from the Commons or cancelled events, allegedly to a loss of $50,000. The Commons tripled down by pulling the progressive label from their description page, and organizing a class called No Free Speech for Fascists? in a pathetic attempt to reframe their promotion of anti-Semitism as some sort of constitutional necessity.

In fact, Ennen is a 9/11 truther who is sympathetic to Bollyns nonsense. In the Brooklyn Paper, she claimed Bollyn didnt say anything derogatory about Jews, and she, doesnt believe the governments version of what brought the towers down. (When Bollyn was asked during the brief Q&A if the Holocaust happened, he replied that it was not his area of expertise.)

Bollyns defenders are convinced that outrage at holocaust denial and conspiracy-peddling in general which is designed to incite hatred against Jews is a Zionist plot. On September 26, a new group calling itself Jewish Antifascist Action, which clearly denounces Zionism,went to an open mic event at the Commons. They were physically attacked with a mic stand, among other objects, for reading their position on the event. Clearly untrammeled free speech is not Ennens main concern. So why is she so ardent in creating a safe space for antisemites?

For those still confused about anti-Semitism and the Left we recommend checking the zine The Past Never Went Anywhere

August Invictus speaks at Liberty Fest

Earlier this year failed Florida Senate candidate, self-proclaimed fascist, and True Blood cosplayer August Invictus had his event shut down in Portland, was kicked out of Canada, was banned from a Left Hand Path conference, got dumped twice in one week, and likely spoke at a National Socialist Movement conference. Nonetheless, Ian Cioffi, who previously booked NATAs Craig Fitzgerald to speak at anarcho-capitalist event called Anarchy in the NYC before Cioffi was forced to drop him from the list of speakers after management caught wise thought Invictus seemed like a fine speaker for his Liberty Fest event at the Cutting Room in Manhattan. (The venue did not returned our email when alerted of the event.) Invictus spoke to a small crowd from the balcony with alongside the aforementioned Gabriel Brown, who seems like some kind of neo-Nazi Zelig.

NSM to rally in Harrisburg

On November 5th the National Socialist Movement is planning to hold a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Local antifascists have called for a militant counter-demonstration, and are encouraging comrades from out of state to come through. SeeIGDs post for more information.

KSS to Attempt Leif Erickson Day Rally Again

KSS and Matthew Heimbach were so scared of antifa they showed up the night before the announced day of the Leif Erikson rally in 2015. Hold your heads high, brave aryan warriors!

Philly Antifa are calling for antifascists to come to Philadelphia to oppose the annual neo-Nazi rally at the Thorfinn Karlsefni statue on Boathouse Row on Sunday, October 9 at 11 AM. They write: For the past 10 years, the city of Philadelphia has played host to a gathering of Neo-Nazis right under the noses of its residents. This gathering, known as The Leif Erikson Day Celebration is organized, promoted, and attended exclusively by members of Neo-Nazi organizations. In past years the gathering has drawn upwards of 50 hardcore racists and fascists to Philly and served as an recruiting and organizing tool for the main organization involved, the Keystone State Skinheads (KSS).

In addition to KSS, past Leif Erikson day celebrations have been attended by members of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), The American 3rd Position Party/American Freedom Party (A3P/AFP), Volksfront (VF), The Vinlanders Social Club (VSC) and the Hated Skins. Furthermore, individuals who have attended past Leif Ericson day celebrations have been tied to racist terror organizations such as Blood and Honour and the KKK.

Love football, hate Nazi skinheads

New Yorks newest Major League Soccer club, NYCFC, has been marred by the support of neo-Nazis, starting from their earliest games. Anti-racist fans have worked to identify and remove most of these types from the stadium, but the fash still congregate at bars and eventsoutside the gates. Joining other antifascist fan clubs Cosmopolitan AFAand Garden State Ultras, NYCFC Antifa aims to nip fascist soccer culture in the bud.

N-AM DR-AMA

Sorry, Craig. Not anti-Semitic enough!

Our favorite local horizontalist-fascistclowns the National Anarchists Tribal Alliance (NATA) are having some problems. As reasonable as it may sound for a Holocaust-denying, neo-Nazi loving anarchist group to endorse Donald Trump, the founder of the National-Anarchist Movement (N-AM) thinks differently. In a statement posted to N-AMs Facebook, Troy Southgate cited NATAs embrace of mixed racial organizing, Islamophobia, support for the Alt-Right and Trump and even punctuation choices as a reason for cutting ties with his international. In response, NATA commandant Craig Fitzgerald called Southgate an esoteric Hitlerist hipster, vowed to cleanse any dissidents in the group, and start a new American National-Anarchist network despite not having the capacity to successfully organize a public event in years.

Heres Southgates rollercoaster-ride of a purge speech in full:

#PrisonStrike

Comrades at IWW Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) have been following and supporting a September 9th national strike against slavery which affected over 40 prisons nationwide. At the Holman facility in Alabama, corrections officers have joined the strike as well. Follow developments at Mask Magazine and check in with IWOC on how to support the prisoners in winning their demands and avoiding retribution.

Rojava Solidarity

With Turkeys invasion of Northern Syria, the non-State of Rojava is now fighting a war on four fronts. Despite being the most effective fighting force against ISIS, Turkey has ordered their withdrawal and skirmishes have occurred between the alliance Rojava is part of (the SDF), the anti-Assad Free Syrian Aryan (which includes moderate Islamists), and the Syrian Army.

Activists in New York are showing their solidarity with Rojava at demonstrations at the Turkish consulate and a banner drop. At the last consulate demonstration, ultra-nationalist thugs attacked the first pro-Rojava activists who arrived; when NYPD came, they threatened to arrest both sides, and then illegally tried to force the demonstration across the street. Rojava Solidarity NYC will return on October 9 for a rematch.

Feels good man

Antifa Routed In Austin – Men Of The West

Yes. We bullied Antifa. We punched them in the face. We took their flags. And we ate their pizza.

Capture the Flag!

First and foremost, I want to boast that I got to punch a commie. In the defense of one of my fellow Americans that was being attacked, I actually got to punch a commie. Granted, he was a weak, noodle-y looking thing, but I got a shot in before the cops stepped in the middle of it and prevented more. I also got a souvenir from one of them. I kept offering to give it back to them if one of them was brave enough to come and take it from me; sadly, the cowards didnt take me up on it. As I advised readers not long ago, get yourself to a protest.

I was part of a group that organized hastilyover the weekend to stand against Antifa and Austin Red Guards (a Communist group) and let them know that we werent going to allow them to get away with the violence and mayhemthey had done in other cities. Dont mess with Texas was in full effect.We had about the same number of people they did, perhaps a few less, but we were better armed, better trained and better prepared. The most prominent member of the group was CJ Grisham, Founder and President of Open Carry Texas. The rest ofour group was made up of people from various groups such as III%ers, Oath Keepers, Lone Star Gun Rights and other unaffiliated patriots who are sick and tired of seeing Antifa and the commie bastards get away with the things theyve been doing.We had an interesting group of characters. Of course we had our typical white guys. We also had a large black man, a few women, a gay Asian man and several Hispanic men. We had a guy with a Confederate flag, a guy with a shield that had a Pepe sticker and a skinny Scotsman in a kilt, wielding a broadsword. We had some loud mouth white supremacists too. We completely routed the commies and sent them home with nothing but heart break and a few bruises.

With an estimated force of 50 people maximum, these masked, hooded snowflakes shouted typical Communist garbage that they didnt seem to understand themselves. Most of them looked like they were under 25 years old. One of them wascarrying what I believe was aKelTech Sub-2000, anotherhad a modified Ruger 10/22, and the other may have beensome AK variant.

Armed Antifa with a KelTec Sub-2000

Lets start with the guns because it was blinding obvious that they had no training whatsoever. They had them on slings with their left hand forward on the barrel as expected. Rather than having their right hands in the ready position near the trigger, they were holding them toward the back of the stock. I doubt they even carried live rounds. A woman and two small men had the guns. Looks like they had about 34.3 secondsof instruction on how to look like a badass; it clearly didnt work. Someone standing next to me was taunting them and asking if they had ever fired a gun, if they were felons, etc. They looked like they would have shot him if they knew how.

They must have got wind of the fact that we were coming because they attempted some misdirection and had a couple of groups spread out quite a few blocks from where they were supposed to meet. We had credible information regarding their location and we started going that way. A little later, we got some additional information that they had formed up in the original location after we left, so we headed back. But we were smarter than they were. We split off in to two groups and approached them from the north and the east. They got themselves trapped on a corner with a very narrow escape path in one direction. We had them surrounded on the remaining three corners. They werent about to charge us or make trouble. They were getting taunted from all sides while they shouted their slogans and made weak death threats.

While they were trapped on the corner, they were joined by more of their comrades who came heavily armed with red balloons, two boxes of pizza along with a wagon full of banners, and flags. We eventually relieved them of the pizza, many of their flags, and eventually the wagon itself though the police made us give it back. During this time, a homeless woman was standing on our side of the street asking what was going on, we told them and she walked across the street and started cussing at the commies. The cops literally pushed her away a little later. I was roaring with laughter. Eventually, they got tired of standing there feeling cornered and decided to head north so they could get out in the open. Those of us on the west side of the street, double timed it up the street to get ahead and stand in front of them. Sure, they had a right to march, but remember, one of ourmain goal was to contain them to prevent mayhem.

Bad Tactical Formation

Once they were out in the open, it made it harder for the police and more of them were showing up including a couple of riot vans. The cops now had their batons out after a couple of skirmishes had broken out. It was during one of those early skirmishes that I punched a commie. We had a couple of guys that were really trying to get a rise out them and it apparently worked. A couple of them rushed forward and tried to overwhelm a couple of our guys. I was just a few feet away and I stepped in and punched the closest one in the side of the head. But the cops were all over it, got in the middle and broke it up. Sadly, I wasnt close enough to any of the other skirmishes to be able to take another shot. As you can see, linking arms isnt exactly a sound tactical formation. It was a position of surrender. Other than some mild lashing out, they knew they didnt stand a chance of doing what they set out to do.

Some other observations. They had no tactical plan. They had no strategic plan. They had no exit plan. Ultimately, we eventually just let them go their way and left them alone. They had women and their smaller men up front at various times to use as shields. They didnt seem to have anything but some very basic instruction on staying together. Most of their crew seemed to be overweight.

If you are going to be participating in any protests or counter-protests, perhaps these observations will help you to prepare for your event. The Hard Right is rising, folks.

Last night we did our part. We stood up to them. We showed them that we were not going to allow them to continue ruining our society. And yes, I got to punch one, which was really, really nice. But we also hoped to help them see the error of their ways. We even helped the fatties kick off a diet, by eating all their pizza.

Shifty Sands: Antifa and the Trump Coalition After the Latest …

Andrew Anglin Daily Stormer April 28, 2017

Black Pigeon produced a relatively good analysis of the Antifa problem.

Worth watching. Its got a little bit of his moderate signaling, which isnt as extreme as Sargon of Akkads, but can still be annoying, I know. But his overall analysis is correct: they are warriors for the establishment.

But after yesterdays event at Berkeley, Im not really certain how useful or important such analysis even is.

Its been a weird few months.

Here is the timeline that was supposed to exist:

Heres the timeline that happened:

Yesterday was supposed to be a defining event in the left-vs-right street battle, but instead it wasnt. It may in fact have signaled the end of the entire thing.

Coulter didnt show up. Instead, Gavin McInnes rallied people like Baked Alaska, Lauren Southern and Based Stickman to go in her place. Very few people showed-up. Mainly it was BASED black guys, BASED women and the Proud Boys (who appear to mostly be Asian).

Very few antifa showed up, and they didnt really attack anyone.

Apparently, 7 people were arrested.

But nothing much happened, because very few people were there, and no one had a lot of energy.

Alt-Lite

I cant see the Alt-Lite being able to sustain itself in light of the Trump betrayal.

Some of these people are still shell-shocked. You could see this at the rally yesterday, where they were wearing Trump shirts, holding Trump signs, and talking about a wall and deportations. But Trump already said hes not building a wall (in so many words he technically said maybe next time, friendo), and hes recognized DACA, there havent been any mass round-ups and there is no evidence there will be.

As Alex Jones for all intents and purposes, Jones is Alt-Lite recently flipped out about, even the Syrian refugee agenda is going through.

All of the civic nationalism America First stuff that Trump campaigned on is also gone. He is involving us in foreign conflicts, he is threatening Russia, he is endorsing the entire NATO globalist agenda.

The economic workers rights stuff is also gone. He has now endorsed NAFTA, and I have no doubt will allow a TPP style trade deal to be reintroduced (back before they got to him, he had shut that down).

The Alt-Lite platform was entirely dependent on Trump, and with Trump now supporting all these things they rallied against, I dont see that they can continue to exist. Well, they can continue to post on Twitter and make YouTube videos and so on of course, but there is no clear agenda as there is no rallying point, and they arent going to be able to grow or maintain support.

If Trump cant save America through the electoral process, then no one can save you through the electoral process, so the entire philosophical underpinnings of the Alt-Lite which could basically be summed up as we need to return to 1980s norms have been proven impotent.

The members of this movement are in a state of full psychological collapse. If you want to understand that better, just go check out a few of the threads a r/The_Donald.

Antifa

Antifas energy was also based on the energy of the Trump movement. Their whole deal is signaling in support of the establishment, so when Trump was anti-establishment, talking about shutting down immigration and building a wall and so on, they were emboldened.

But as I say, without the figurehead and with their entire belief system undermined, the Alt-Lite wont be rallying much longer, so the only people the Antifa can attack are the Alt-Right, and we will be rallying against Trump.

I dont think they will be able to withstand the Antifa for Trump chants very long.

Alt-Right

The Alt-Right is the last man standing in the entire new political landscape that was created when Trump bombed Bashir Al-Assad on April 6th, 2017 (22 days ago).

We supported Trump as far as he represented elements of our agenda, but unlike the Alt-Lite, our agenda was in no way limited to him.

We viewed him as a step in the right direction. And all said and done, he did serve that purpose. I have seen people on the internet saying I should apologize for helping get Trump elected, and this is obviously absurd. If I had it to do over again, Id have done it the same way.

We are in a much, much better place than we would be if Hillary would have gotten elected, for a number of reasons:

If Hillary had won, wed have:

It is not only good that he was elected, it is good that he flipped.

In the long run, this is good.

Democracy was never a valid form of government. Now, all the genuine people who were involved in the Alt-Lite are going to come to us.

If Hillary had won, the Alt-Right would have been sidelined by people talking about the 2020 election, if Trump had not betrayed us, the Alt-Lite moderates would have won the majority of dissident support.

(Note: The Alt-Lite probably will do a Southern/McInnes 2020 campaign.)

Now we organize and we move forward: against democracy and against the Jews, with the support of anyone who believes in any kind of real change.

Even the moderates of the Alt-Lite who are opposed to racism now have to recognize that we were right from the beginning and they have to either join us or give up.

It is time to radicalize the masses. The grounds have never been more fertile than they are right now.

Join a Stormer Book Club in your area and start networking.

Make connections, develop brotherhood and strengthen yourself for what is to come.

Spread the message.

We have never been better positioned for victory than we are right now.

Please support this site if you can.

Hail Victory.

Antifa Radicals Set Paris ‘May Day’ March Aflame – LifeZette

Antifa radicals,the sort who have brought violence against attempts toadvance free speech at University of California, Berkeley, wrought havoc Monday on the streets of Paris.

A May Day march organized by left-wing activists in Frances capital descended into complete chaos after Antifa protesters and other radical leftists began violently attacking police officers.

At least four officers wereinjured after masked Anfita thugs attempted to hijack the march in a possible act of resistance against Marine Le Pens candidacyin the presidential election. One of the officers is in serious condition after being hit with a Molotov cocktail, according to reports.

I pay tribute to the two injured CRS [French riot police], tweeted Le Pen in French before news of more injured officers broke. Its this mess and this laxity that I dont want to see anymore in our streets, she wrote.

In addition to throwing improvisedbombs at police officers, Antifa rioters vandalized a number of businesses and a bus stop, according to police. Rioters also appeared to throw fireworks and smoke bombs towards police officers. At least one flaming shopping cart was hurled towards law enforcement officers.

Harrowing video footage posted to YouTube by independent journalist Lauren Southern shows the rioters throwing bottles and what appears to be scrap metal at a group of riot officers, before the same group is struck with some type of incendiary device. French police also said they had made multiple arrests of people carrying illegal weapons.

The Paris May Day march an annual left-wing show of strength is a regular occurrence, but this year’s march was particularly violent given that Le Penmade the runoff in the French presidential election. The yearly event was turned into an explicitly anti-Le Pen march.

The police were able to quickly isolate the violent Antifa agitatorsfrom the main body of the march, according to reports. Paris authorities were well prepared for the violence over 9,000 armed police and soldiers were drafted for the day, the Daily Telegraph reported on Monday morning.

May Day, whileoriginally a spring festival with ancient European pagan roots, has become the semi-official holiday of socialists, communists, and anarchists worldwide.

In 1889 Raymond Lavigne, a member of the Second International, proposed mass action on May 1 in honor of the Chicago Haymarket strikes, which began the same day. By 1904 the observance had become officially accepted by socialists as “International Workers Day.”

The Antifa violence that erupted in Paris is becoming a sight all too familiar in America, although stateside the group’s targets are usually conservative civilians and not the police. Multiple right-alignedevents at UC Berkeley have been marred by Antifa violence. But whether in California or France, Antifa’s tactics are always consistent.

Members of the group embed themselves into larger left-wing protests and demonstrations, often organized by and largely composed of people who have no intention whatsoever to commit violence.

From the relative safety of a larger, and largely nonviolent, crowd, Antifa criminals then proceed to launch attacks against their chosen targets, whether storefronts, officers of the law, or merely fellow citizens with whom they disagree.

While there have been no reports of violence at the time of this report, Antifa members wereseen at a May Day demonstration in New York City’s Union Square.

Antifa group behind violent riots discovered to have ties to pedophile group – TheBlaze.com

Documents discovered by the Daily Caller have revealed that the Antifa group present at the Berkeley anti-conservative riots have connections to the pedophile group known as the North American Man/Boy Love Association.

The Antifa group known as the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), have led several anti-right riots, including the one against provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, and were behind the plans to disrupt Ann Coulters Berkeley appearance before it was canceled.

According to the Daily Caller, BAMNs parent organization,the Revolutionary Workers League in Detroit, has worked directly with NAMBLA. Additionally, BAMNs co-founder, Eileen Scheffis a member of the Revolutionary Workers League, and an admitted member of NAMBLA. Reportedly, she describes NAMBLA as being the victum of a witch-hunt.

From Daily Caller:

Shanta Driver, described by the Capital Research Center as BAMNs founder and co-chair, was affiliated with RWL as early as 1983, according to the Workers Vanguard, a communist publication. She alsoidentified herself to the Los Angeles Times as an activist with RWLin late 1995 while protesting in Berkeley.

Driver argued before the Supreme Court on behalf of BAMNas recently as 2013.

Drivers former law partner, Eileen Scheff who has represented BAMN on multipleoccasions, including at the Supreme Court has been aself-described member of NAMBLA. The bulletin identified Scheff as an RWL member.

As an activist in the legal and political struggle for lesbian/gay rights and for freedom of sexual expression, I am here to support NAMBLA and to demand that the witch-hunt against it must be stopped, Scheff said ata 1991 NAMBLA conference. The media and police are targeting NAMBLA because it stands for the rights of young people to have consensual sex with whomever they want.

During her speech, Scheff called for youth-controlled centers where adults can have sex with children. She advocated for the womens movement, the LGBT community, and progressives to unite behind NAMBLAs cause.

The Daily Caller reportedly got their hands on internal NAMBLAdocuments thanks to anonymous internet sleuths who wished not to be identified as they feared retaliation from BAMN.

Antifa or Anti-First Amendment Group Wants to Give Their Monkeys Guns – AmmoLand Shooting Sports News

by Don McDougal : Opinion

USA -(Ammoland.com)- The Alt-Left is going to get somebody killed; and it looks like that is by design.

When you buy a gun it is with a reason or purpose. I got a new Match Ruger 100 for Silhouette competitions, the wife got a Weatherby XXII so she could join me.

The Anti free speech movement wants to buy guns too, but not for the same reasons you and I do. They want guns to instill fear in Trump supporters.

Their purpose is clear they want guns to intimate people.

Every gun bag I own has a working knife in it. Used to clear a stuck case, or open a box of ammunition etc. Every knife has a purpose. The custom knife once advertised on the Antis web page was specifically for Slashing trump supporters. Just like with firearms they to have a reason and purpose for this object, and it is solely to inflict harm on others. The knife was advertised as something you could hide and use to sneak into an event.

These groups have produced articles on their web pages about knife fighting. Their Facebook page calls for physical attacks on whites and calls on supporters to get a gun. They promote gun ownership in order to intimidate those they disagree with, they suggest buying a concealable knife to slash and attack those that disagree with them.

Suborning assaults and violence is the antithesis of the fascism they claim to be fighting. It is both illegal, is a disruptive element to society and immoral. Actions like theirs can be effective, might I suggest they read up on The Night of Broken Glass The Brown shirts seem to be their type of people.

Now Antifa wants to give guns to their followers or monkeys.

I know this will mostly fall on deaf ears, but for the Antifa stop and think about the violence youre asking for and planning on committing. Think about the lives that your actions will cost. Realize that the murders and assaults you plan on carrying out will change nothing in your favor. In preparing this article I did as much research as I could on your group, you have no core set of beliefs, you seem to be nothing but paid thugs. Think about those who lead you, always safe and warm and sheltered from the repercussions of the actions they promoted. If all you are is a tool dont let that tool be a weapon.

As for the monkey analogy, it only seems harsh. So Ill apologize in advance to the monkeys. As for the Antifa crowd, the best I can tell is youre just being used. Here have a banana.

To fellow gun owners (all 110 million of you)stay aware of your surrounding and watch your back. In Berkley and where there have been other assaults on free speech, the Antifa groups have not discriminated as to who they attack. Families and people walking by are fair game.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–Several rallies are scheduled to take place around Nashville today in honor of “International Workers’ Day.”

Among the rallies will be the “Worker Solidarity Rally,” organized by Nashville Antifa. The group will rally from 3 p.m.-7 p.m. at the Public Square in downtown Nashville to “assemble in solidarity with our fellow workers.

YouTuber Gets in Fight With Antifa at NYC May Day Protests, Police Build Wall to Bring Peace – Heat Street

Trump supporters and Antifas clashed briefly at Union Square in New York City during the May Day protests Monday.

Leftists, communist Antifa and other similar groups gathered in the park to advocate for workers rights and protest PresidentTrumps immigration actions. Around midday a group of Trump supporters arrived, and the scene quickly devolved into violence.

Trump-supporting streamer and YouTuber Brittany Venti was arrested after appearing to hit an Antifa member. Video of the altercation, however, seems to show Venti getting hit first.

Police swept in and built a wall, ironically, around the Trump supporters to keep them separated from the other protesters. For the rest of the protest,the Trump supporters yelled at anti-Trumpers from across a barricade.

Thus peace was restored to Union Square. Maybe theres something to this wall idea.

Berkeley Plans to Fight Left-Wing Violence With ‘Laughter Yoga’, Singing and Bubbles – Heat Street

The City of Berkeleyhas floated the idea of setting up areas for fencing with sponge noodles or laughter yoga (among other things) and having quiet conversations with anti-fascist groups in order to stop violence.

Berkeley, a campus city run by radical mayor Jesse Arreguin, has recently been ground zero ofthe ongoing free speech wars. In February, the city turned into a violent battlefield after a mob of radical black-clad left-wing activists shut down Milo Yiannopoulos event at the University of California, Berkeley.

Shortly after that, free speech supporters held numerousdemonstrations in support of free expression, prompting bloody clashes with antifa groups.

But asthe problem of violence perpetrated by left-wing activists still remains in Berkeley, the city, according to emails acquired by Heat Streetthrough the Public Request Act,is deranged if its current plan to stop the violence is actually enacted.

In an email dated April 20, Downtown Berkeley Association CEO John Cainer come up with a genius idea to stop the violencehave quiet conversations with the radical anarchists and ask them to stop committing violence.

He sharedhis idea to Mayor Jesse Arreguin and his chief of staff Brandi Campbell, writing Do you think there is a possibility of having quiet conversations with leftist activist groups to see is they would be willing to stand down and not show up for May 2 and/or other events?

I know it is probably a long shot, but there would seem to be little risk in quietly doing so, he added.

The cluelessness of the City of Berkeley doesnt stop here. It appears that severalBerkeley Council members, including the Mayor, are subscribed to a Google group called Occupy Bay Area Trainersthe relicsof Occupy Wall Street movement in the area.

In anemail chain,received by multiple council members and the Mayor, City of Berkeley volunteer Commissioner Phoebe Anne Sorgen suggestedstarting a peace force to stop the violence withthings like bubbles singing, and laughter yoga.

Envision Wavy Gravy, bubbles, singing, laughter yoga! Occupella. Buddhist Peace Meditators. Fencing with sponge noodles, she wrote. Will Edwin set up the Empathy tent? How about a volleyball game in the middle of the park and/or a square dance? Will Code Pink pls bring peace symbol cookies to pass out, and daisies.

Interestingly, the commissioners suggestions for an Empathy Tent was actually realizedat a protest at UC Berkeley on April 27.

Sorgenwent on to suggest people shouldnt malignthe black blocananarchist tacticwhen a mob of activists wearing masks committ violencebecause most were ok.

And dont malign the black bloc. Tho they have their bad apples, and provocateurs take advantage of the (tear gas protection) bandana look regrettably, most were ok and, as usual, they also provided the medics last time, she wrote.

If this is the best City of Berkeley can come up with, the problem of radical extremists on the streets will continue.

NYC ANTIFA | Culture of resistance against fascism!

Fasc Pepes beware If our blog has looked a little slow recently, it might be because the work of an antifascist is overwhelming in 2016. Weve also taken to updating our twitter account more frequently, as we are moving towards the blog being mostly for original content. After the repression against Occupy and Arab Spring movements in 2010, global political trends have backslid into deeply regressive populism. The ascendance of Trumpism and the Alt-Right in the US are a result of the same fascist impulses that have solidified the power of Viktor Orban in Hungary, Putin in Russia, and Erdogan in Turkey and convinced thousands to join the cause of ISIS. As most realize that our only electoral alternative to neo-Nationalists and alt-right creeps isthe continuation of the States atrocities at current levels with Clinton, we urge our readers to get organized now. Create or join an antifascist group to monitor your local Trumpists. Link up with immigration advocacy groups and start considering how to block ICE raids. Link up with prisoners who are struggling for their lives.Attend Black Lives Matter demonstrations.Use the fear and outrage of the election season to keep you going, and remind yourself, whatever you do, that voting (and mouthing-off on social media) is never enough! Heres whatsbeen happening in the New York area: Brooklyn Commons triples down on support of anti-Semitism Far Right conspiracy hack Christopher Bollyn had a lot of trouble with his September tour of the United States. Due to his obvious anti-Semitic agenda, venues in Connecticut, New York, and Washington, DC cancelled his bookings once they were made aware of Bollyns history of writing for White Nationalist papers, and working with David Duke and other holocaust deniers. Nonetheless, one venue owner doubled down: Melissa Ennen of the Brooklyn Commons, a space better known for hosting radical and progressive projects such as Jacobin magazine and the Marxist Education Project. She defended her decision on the basis of free speech; in a statement now removed, Ennen said,I agree that all forms of racism should have no place in leftist spaces, but in my opinion, to get to the root of racist thinking, confrontation works better than censorship. Local antifascists and other activists decided to take Ennens advice, and on September 7th, when Bollyn was escorted into the venue with hired security, a group of mostly anti-Zionist jewish protesters was waiting. Employees of the Commons called the police when one of them was spit upon for calling a protesters a fat bitch. Attendees interrupted Bollyns talk with questions, but were thrown out security. During the short Q&A, anattendee asked Bollyn about his blatant anti-Semitism; his response was to point to the exit, and say Theres the door. The crowd included The Commons promoted the event on their website, Facebook, and hung posters in the Cafe itself. Gabriel Brown of NATA and Cathleen McGuire, who loves to book holocaust deniers in left-wing spaces. In the coming days, many projects pulled from the Commons or cancelled events, allegedly to a loss of $50,000. The Commons tripled down by pulling the progressive label from their description page, and organizing a class called No Free Speech for Fascists? in a pathetic attempt to reframe their promotion of anti-Semitism as some sort of constitutional necessity. In fact, Ennen is a 9/11 truther who is sympathetic to Bollyns nonsense. In the Brooklyn Paper, she claimed Bollyn didnt say anything derogatory about Jews, and she, doesnt believe the governments version of what brought the towers down. (When Bollyn was asked during the brief Q&A if the Holocaust happened, he replied that it was not his area of expertise.) Bollyns defenders are convinced that outrage at holocaust denial and conspiracy-peddling in general which is designed to incite hatred against Jews is a Zionist plot. On September 26, a new group calling itself Jewish Antifascist Action, which clearly denounces Zionism,went to an open mic event at the Commons. They were physically attacked with a mic stand, among other objects, for reading their position on the event. Clearly untrammeled free speech is not Ennens main concern. So why is she so ardent in creating a safe space for antisemites? For those still confused about anti-Semitism and the Left we recommend checking the zine The Past Never Went Anywhere August Invictus speaks at Liberty Fest Earlier this year failed Florida Senate candidate, self-proclaimed fascist, and True Blood cosplayer August Invictus had his event shut down in Portland, was kicked out of Canada, was banned from a Left Hand Path conference, got dumped twice in one week, and likely spoke at a National Socialist Movement conference. Nonetheless, Ian Cioffi, who previously booked NATAs Craig Fitzgerald to speak at anarcho-capitalist event called Anarchy in the NYC before Cioffi was forced to drop him from the list of speakers after management caught wise thought Invictus seemed like a fine speaker for his Liberty Fest event at the Cutting Room in Manhattan. (The venue did not returned our email when alerted of the event.) Invictus spoke to a small crowd from the balcony with alongside the aforementioned Gabriel Brown, who seems like some kind of neo-Nazi Zelig. NSM to rally in Harrisburg On November 5th the National Socialist Movement is planning to hold a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Local antifascists have called for a militant counter-demonstration, and are encouraging comrades from out of state to come through. SeeIGDs post for more information. KSS to Attempt Leif Erickson Day Rally Again KSS and Matthew Heimbach were so scared of antifa they showed up the night before the announced day of the Leif Erikson rally in 2015. Hold your heads high, brave aryan warriors! Philly Antifa are calling for antifascists to come to Philadelphia to oppose the annual neo-Nazi rally at the Thorfinn Karlsefni statue on Boathouse Row on Sunday, October 9 at 11 AM. They write: For the past 10 years, the city of Philadelphia has played host to a gathering of Neo-Nazis right under the noses of its residents. This gathering, known as The Leif Erikson Day Celebration is organized, promoted, and attended exclusively by members of Neo-Nazi organizations. In past years the gathering has drawn upwards of 50 hardcore racists and fascists to Philly and served as an recruiting and organizing tool for the main organization involved, the Keystone State Skinheads (KSS). In addition to KSS, past Leif Erikson day celebrations have been attended by members of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), The American 3rd Position Party/American Freedom Party (A3P/AFP), Volksfront (VF), The Vinlanders Social Club (VSC) and the Hated Skins. Furthermore, individuals who have attended past Leif Ericson day celebrations have been tied to racist terror organizations such as Blood and Honour and the KKK. Love football, hate Nazi skinheads New Yorks newest Major League Soccer club, NYCFC, has been marred by the support of neo-Nazis, starting from their earliest games.

As reasonable as it may sound for a Holocaust-denying, neo-Nazi loving anarchist group to endorse Donald Trump, the founder of the National-Anarchist Movement (N-AM) thinks differently. In a statement posted to N-AMs Facebook, Troy Southgate cited NATAs embrace of mixed racial organizing, Islamophobia, support for the Alt-Right and Trump and even punctuation choices as a reason for cutting ties with his international. In response, NATA commandant Craig Fitzgerald called Southgate an esoteric Hitlerist hipster, vowed to cleanse any dissidents in the group, and start a new American National-Anarchist network despite not having the capacity to successfully organize a public event in years. Heres Southgates rollercoaster-ride of a purge speech in full: #PrisonStrike Comrades at IWW Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) have been following and supporting a September 9th national strike against slavery which affected over 40 prisons nationwide.

Activists in New York are showing their solidarity with Rojava at demonstrations at the Turkish consulate and a banner drop. At the last consulate demonstration, ultra-nationalist thugs attacked the first pro-Rojava activists who arrived; when NYPD came, they threatened to arrest both sides, and then illegally tried to force the demonstration across the street.

Antifa Routed In Austin – Men Of The West

Yes. We bullied Antifa. We punched them in the face. We took their flags. And we ate their pizza. Capture the Flag! First and foremost, I want to boast that I got to punch a commie. In the defense of one of my fellow Americans that was being attacked, I actually got to punch a commie. Granted, he was a weak, noodle-y looking thing, but I got a shot in before the cops stepped in the middle of it and prevented more. I also got a souvenir from one of them. I kept offering to give it back to them if one of them was brave enough to come and take it from me; sadly, the cowards didnt take me up on it. As I advised readers not long ago, get yourself to a protest. I was part of a group that organized hastilyover the weekend to stand against Antifa and Austin Red Guards (a Communist group) and let them know that we werent going to allow them to get away with the violence and mayhemthey had done in other cities. Dont mess with Texas was in full effect.We had about the same number of people they did, perhaps a few less, but we were better armed, better trained and better prepared. The most prominent member of the group was CJ Grisham, Founder and President of Open Carry Texas. The rest ofour group was made up of people from various groups such as III%ers, Oath Keepers, Lone Star Gun Rights and other unaffiliated patriots who are sick and tired of seeing Antifa and the commie bastards get away with the things theyve been doing.We had an interesting group of characters. Of course we had our typical white guys. We also had a large black man, a few women, a gay Asian man and several Hispanic men. We had a guy with a Confederate flag, a guy with a shield that had a Pepe sticker and a skinny Scotsman in a kilt, wielding a broadsword. We had some loud mouth white supremacists too. We completely routed the commies and sent them home with nothing but heart break and a few bruises. With an estimated force of 50 people maximum, these masked, hooded snowflakes shouted typical Communist garbage that they didnt seem to understand themselves. Most of them looked like they were under 25 years old. One of them wascarrying what I believe was aKelTech Sub-2000, anotherhad a modified Ruger 10/22, and the other may have beensome AK variant. Armed Antifa with a KelTec Sub-2000 Lets start with the guns because it was blinding obvious that they had no training whatsoever. They had them on slings with their left hand forward on the barrel as expected. Rather than having their right hands in the ready position near the trigger, they were holding them toward the back of the stock. I doubt they even carried live rounds. A woman and two small men had the guns. Looks like they had about 34.3 secondsof instruction on how to look like a badass; it clearly didnt work. Someone standing next to me was taunting them and asking if they had ever fired a gun, if they were felons, etc. They looked like they would have shot him if they knew how. They must have got wind of the fact that we were coming because they attempted some misdirection and had a couple of groups spread out quite a few blocks from where they were supposed to meet. We had credible information regarding their location and we started going that way. A little later, we got some additional information that they had formed up in the original location after we left, so we headed back. But we were smarter than they were. We split off in to two groups and approached them from the north and the east. They got themselves trapped on a corner with a very narrow escape path in one direction. We had them surrounded on the remaining three corners. They werent about to charge us or make trouble. They were getting taunted from all sides while they shouted their slogans and made weak death threats. While they were trapped on the corner, they were joined by more of their comrades who came heavily armed with red balloons, two boxes of pizza along with a wagon full of banners, and flags. We eventually relieved them of the pizza, many of their flags, and eventually the wagon itself though the police made us give it back. During this time, a homeless woman was standing on our side of the street asking what was going on, we told them and she walked across the street and started cussing at the commies. The cops literally pushed her away a little later. I was roaring with laughter. Eventually, they got tired of standing there feeling cornered and decided to head north so they could get out in the open. Those of us on the west side of the street, double timed it up the street to get ahead and stand in front of them. Sure, they had a right to march, but remember, one of ourmain goal was to contain them to prevent mayhem. Bad Tactical Formation Once they were out in the open, it made it harder for the police and more of them were showing up including a couple of riot vans. The cops now had their batons out after a couple of skirmishes had broken out. It was during one of those early skirmishes that I punched a commie. We had a couple of guys that were really trying to get a rise out them and it apparently worked. A couple of them rushed forward and tried to overwhelm a couple of our guys. I was just a few feet away and I stepped in and punched the closest one in the side of the head. But the cops were all over it, got in the middle and broke it up. Sadly, I wasnt close enough to any of the other skirmishes to be able to take another shot. As you can see, linking arms isnt exactly a sound tactical formation. It was a position of surrender. Other than some mild lashing out, they knew they didnt stand a chance of doing what they set out to do. Some other observations. They had no tactical plan. They had no strategic plan. They had no exit plan. Ultimately, we eventually just let them go their way and left them alone. They had women and their smaller men up front at various times to use as shields. They didnt seem to have anything but some very basic instruction on staying together. Most of their crew seemed to be overweight. If you are going to be participating in any protests or counter-protests, perhaps these observations will help you to prepare for your event. The Hard Right is rising, folks. Last night we did our part. We stood up to them. We showed them that we were not going to allow them to continue ruining our society. And yes, I got to punch one, which was really, really nice. But we also hoped to help them see the error of their ways. We even helped the fatties kick off a diet, by eating all their pizza.

Shifty Sands: Antifa and the Trump Coalition After the Latest …

Andrew Anglin Daily Stormer April 28, 2017 Black Pigeon produced a relatively good analysis of the Antifa problem. Worth watching. Its got a little bit of his moderate signaling, which isnt as extreme as Sargon of Akkads, but can still be annoying, I know. But his overall analysis is correct: they are warriors for the establishment. But after yesterdays event at Berkeley, Im not really certain how useful or important such analysis even is. Its been a weird few months. Here is the timeline that was supposed to exist: Heres the timeline that happened: Yesterday was supposed to be a defining event in the left-vs-right street battle, but instead it wasnt. It may in fact have signaled the end of the entire thing. Coulter didnt show up. Instead, Gavin McInnes rallied people like Baked Alaska, Lauren Southern and Based Stickman to go in her place. Very few people showed-up. Mainly it was BASED black guys, BASED women and the Proud Boys (who appear to mostly be Asian). Very few antifa showed up, and they didnt really attack anyone. Apparently, 7 people were arrested. But nothing much happened, because very few people were there, and no one had a lot of energy. Alt-Lite I cant see the Alt-Lite being able to sustain itself in light of the Trump betrayal. Some of these people are still shell-shocked. You could see this at the rally yesterday, where they were wearing Trump shirts, holding Trump signs, and talking about a wall and deportations. But Trump already said hes not building a wall (in so many words he technically said maybe next time, friendo), and hes recognized DACA, there havent been any mass round-ups and there is no evidence there will be. As Alex Jones for all intents and purposes, Jones is Alt-Lite recently flipped out about, even the Syrian refugee agenda is going through. All of the civic nationalism America First stuff that Trump campaigned on is also gone. He is involving us in foreign conflicts, he is threatening Russia, he is endorsing the entire NATO globalist agenda. The economic workers rights stuff is also gone. He has now endorsed NAFTA, and I have no doubt will allow a TPP style trade deal to be reintroduced (back before they got to him, he had shut that down). The Alt-Lite platform was entirely dependent on Trump, and with Trump now supporting all these things they rallied against, I dont see that they can continue to exist. Well, they can continue to post on Twitter and make YouTube videos and so on of course, but there is no clear agenda as there is no rallying point, and they arent going to be able to grow or maintain support. If Trump cant save America through the electoral process, then no one can save you through the electoral process, so the entire philosophical underpinnings of the Alt-Lite which could basically be summed up as we need to return to 1980s norms have been proven impotent. The members of this movement are in a state of full psychological collapse. If you want to understand that better, just go check out a few of the threads a r/The_Donald. Antifa Antifas energy was also based on the energy of the Trump movement. Their whole deal is signaling in support of the establishment, so when Trump was anti-establishment, talking about shutting down immigration and building a wall and so on, they were emboldened. But as I say, without the figurehead and with their entire belief system undermined, the Alt-Lite wont be rallying much longer, so the only people the Antifa can attack are the Alt-Right, and we will be rallying against Trump. I dont think they will be able to withstand the Antifa for Trump chants very long. Alt-Right The Alt-Right is the last man standing in the entire new political landscape that was created when Trump bombed Bashir Al-Assad on April 6th, 2017 (22 days ago). We supported Trump as far as he represented elements of our agenda, but unlike the Alt-Lite, our agenda was in no way limited to him. We viewed him as a step in the right direction. And all said and done, he did serve that purpose. I have seen people on the internet saying I should apologize for helping get Trump elected, and this is obviously absurd. If I had it to do over again, Id have done it the same way. We are in a much, much better place than we would be if Hillary would have gotten elected, for a number of reasons: If Hillary had won, wed have: It is not only good that he was elected, it is good that he flipped. In the long run, this is good. Democracy was never a valid form of government. Now, all the genuine people who were involved in the Alt-Lite are going to come to us. If Hillary had won, the Alt-Right would have been sidelined by people talking about the 2020 election, if Trump had not betrayed us, the Alt-Lite moderates would have won the majority of dissident support. (Note: The Alt-Lite probably will do a Southern/McInnes 2020 campaign.) Now we organize and we move forward: against democracy and against the Jews, with the support of anyone who believes in any kind of real change. Even the moderates of the Alt-Lite who are opposed to racism now have to recognize that we were right from the beginning and they have to either join us or give up. It is time to radicalize the masses. The grounds have never been more fertile than they are right now. Join a Stormer Book Club in your area and start networking. Make connections, develop brotherhood and strengthen yourself for what is to come. Spread the message. We have never been better positioned for victory than we are right now.

Antifa Radicals Set Paris ‘May Day’ March Aflame – LifeZette

Antifa radicals,the sort who have brought violence against attempts toadvance free speech at University of California, Berkeley, wrought havoc Monday on the streets of Paris. A May Day march organized by left-wing activists in Frances capital descended into complete chaos after Antifa protesters and other radical leftists began violently attacking police officers. At least four officers wereinjured after masked Anfita thugs attempted to hijack the march in a possible act of resistance against Marine Le Pens candidacyin the presidential election. One of the officers is in serious condition after being hit with a Molotov cocktail, according to reports. I pay tribute to the two injured CRS [French riot police], tweeted Le Pen in French before news of more injured officers broke. Its this mess and this laxity that I dont want to see anymore in our streets, she wrote. In addition to throwing improvisedbombs at police officers, Antifa rioters vandalized a number of businesses and a bus stop, according to police. Rioters also appeared to throw fireworks and smoke bombs towards police officers. At least one flaming shopping cart was hurled towards law enforcement officers. Harrowing video footage posted to YouTube by independent journalist Lauren Southern shows the rioters throwing bottles and what appears to be scrap metal at a group of riot officers, before the same group is struck with some type of incendiary device. French police also said they had made multiple arrests of people carrying illegal weapons. The Paris May Day march an annual left-wing show of strength is a regular occurrence, but this year’s march was particularly violent given that Le Penmade the runoff in the French presidential election. The yearly event was turned into an explicitly anti-Le Pen march. The police were able to quickly isolate the violent Antifa agitatorsfrom the main body of the march, according to reports. Paris authorities were well prepared for the violence over 9,000 armed police and soldiers were drafted for the day, the Daily Telegraph reported on Monday morning. May Day, whileoriginally a spring festival with ancient European pagan roots, has become the semi-official holiday of socialists, communists, and anarchists worldwide. In 1889 Raymond Lavigne, a member of the Second International, proposed mass action on May 1 in honor of the Chicago Haymarket strikes, which began the same day. By 1904 the observance had become officially accepted by socialists as “International Workers Day.” The Antifa violence that erupted in Paris is becoming a sight all too familiar in America, although stateside the group’s targets are usually conservative civilians and not the police. Multiple right-alignedevents at UC Berkeley have been marred by Antifa violence. But whether in California or France, Antifa’s tactics are always consistent. Members of the group embed themselves into larger left-wing protests and demonstrations, often organized by and largely composed of people who have no intention whatsoever to commit violence. From the relative safety of a larger, and largely nonviolent, crowd, Antifa criminals then proceed to launch attacks against their chosen targets, whether storefronts, officers of the law, or merely fellow citizens with whom they disagree. While there have been no reports of violence at the time of this report, Antifa members wereseen at a May Day demonstration in New York City’s Union Square.

Antifa group behind violent riots discovered to have ties to pedophile group – TheBlaze.com

Documents discovered by the Daily Caller have revealed that the Antifa group present at the Berkeley anti-conservative riots have connections to the pedophile group known as the North American Man/Boy Love Association. The Antifa group known as the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), have led several anti-right riots, including the one against provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, and were behind the plans to disrupt Ann Coulters Berkeley appearance before it was canceled. According to the Daily Caller, BAMNs parent organization,the Revolutionary Workers League in Detroit, has worked directly with NAMBLA. Additionally, BAMNs co-founder, Eileen Scheffis a member of the Revolutionary Workers League, and an admitted member of NAMBLA. Reportedly, she describes NAMBLA as being the victum of a witch-hunt. From Daily Caller: Shanta Driver, described by the Capital Research Center as BAMNs founder and co-chair, was affiliated with RWL as early as 1983, according to the Workers Vanguard, a communist publication. She alsoidentified herself to the Los Angeles Times as an activist with RWLin late 1995 while protesting in Berkeley. Driver argued before the Supreme Court on behalf of BAMNas recently as 2013. Drivers former law partner, Eileen Scheff who has represented BAMN on multipleoccasions, including at the Supreme Court has been aself-described member of NAMBLA. The bulletin identified Scheff as an RWL member. As an activist in the legal and political struggle for lesbian/gay rights and for freedom of sexual expression, I am here to support NAMBLA and to demand that the witch-hunt against it must be stopped, Scheff said ata 1991 NAMBLA conference. The media and police are targeting NAMBLA because it stands for the rights of young people to have consensual sex with whomever they want. During her speech, Scheff called for youth-controlled centers where adults can have sex with children. She advocated for the womens movement, the LGBT community, and progressives to unite behind NAMBLAs cause. The Daily Caller reportedly got their hands on internal NAMBLAdocuments thanks to anonymous internet sleuths who wished not to be identified as they feared retaliation from BAMN.

Antifa or Anti-First Amendment Group Wants to Give Their Monkeys Guns – AmmoLand Shooting Sports News

by Don McDougal : Opinion USA -(Ammoland.com)- The Alt-Left is going to get somebody killed; and it looks like that is by design. When you buy a gun it is with a reason or purpose. I got a new Match Ruger 100 for Silhouette competitions, the wife got a Weatherby XXII so she could join me. The Anti free speech movement wants to buy guns too, but not for the same reasons you and I do. They want guns to instill fear in Trump supporters. Their purpose is clear they want guns to intimate people. Every gun bag I own has a working knife in it. Used to clear a stuck case, or open a box of ammunition etc. Every knife has a purpose. The custom knife once advertised on the Antis web page was specifically for Slashing trump supporters. Just like with firearms they to have a reason and purpose for this object, and it is solely to inflict harm on others. The knife was advertised as something you could hide and use to sneak into an event. These groups have produced articles on their web pages about knife fighting. Their Facebook page calls for physical attacks on whites and calls on supporters to get a gun. They promote gun ownership in order to intimidate those they disagree with, they suggest buying a concealable knife to slash and attack those that disagree with them. Suborning assaults and violence is the antithesis of the fascism they claim to be fighting. It is both illegal, is a disruptive element to society and immoral. Actions like theirs can be effective, might I suggest they read up on The Night of Broken Glass The Brown shirts seem to be their type of people. Now Antifa wants to give guns to their followers or monkeys. I know this will mostly fall on deaf ears, but for the Antifa stop and think about the violence youre asking for and planning on committing. Think about the lives that your actions will cost. Realize that the murders and assaults you plan on carrying out will change nothing in your favor. In preparing this article I did as much research as I could on your group, you have no core set of beliefs, you seem to be nothing but paid thugs. Think about those who lead you, always safe and warm and sheltered from the repercussions of the actions they promoted. If all you are is a tool dont let that tool be a weapon. As for the monkey analogy, it only seems harsh. So Ill apologize in advance to the monkeys. As for the Antifa crowd, the best I can tell is youre just being used. Here have a banana. To fellow gun owners (all 110 million of you)stay aware of your surrounding and watch your back. In Berkley and where there have been other assaults on free speech, the Antifa groups have not discriminated as to who they attack. Families and people walking by are fair game.

YouTuber Gets in Fight With Antifa at NYC May Day Protests, Police Build Wall to Bring Peace – Heat Street

Trump supporters and Antifas clashed briefly at Union Square in New York City during the May Day protests Monday. Leftists, communist Antifa and other similar groups gathered in the park to advocate for workers rights and protest PresidentTrumps immigration actions. Around midday a group of Trump supporters arrived, and the scene quickly devolved into violence. Trump-supporting streamer and YouTuber Brittany Venti was arrested after appearing to hit an Antifa member. Video of the altercation, however, seems to show Venti getting hit first. Police swept in and built a wall, ironically, around the Trump supporters to keep them separated from the other protesters. For the rest of the protest,the Trump supporters yelled at anti-Trumpers from across a barricade. Thus peace was restored to Union Square. Maybe theres something to this wall idea.

Berkeley Plans to Fight Left-Wing Violence With ‘Laughter Yoga’, Singing and Bubbles – Heat Street

The City of Berkeleyhas floated the idea of setting up areas for fencing with sponge noodles or laughter yoga (among other things) and having quiet conversations with anti-fascist groups in order to stop violence. Berkeley, a campus city run by radical mayor Jesse Arreguin, has recently been ground zero ofthe ongoing free speech wars. In February, the city turned into a violent battlefield after a mob of radical black-clad left-wing activists shut down Milo Yiannopoulos event at the University of California, Berkeley. Shortly after that, free speech supporters held numerousdemonstrations in support of free expression, prompting bloody clashes with antifa groups. But asthe problem of violence perpetrated by left-wing activists still remains in Berkeley, the city, according to emails acquired by Heat Streetthrough the Public Request Act,is deranged if its current plan to stop the violence is actually enacted. In an email dated April 20, Downtown Berkeley Association CEO John Cainer come up with a genius idea to stop the violencehave quiet conversations with the radical anarchists and ask them to stop committing violence. He sharedhis idea to Mayor Jesse Arreguin and his chief of staff Brandi Campbell, writing Do you think there is a possibility of having quiet conversations with leftist activist groups to see is they would be willing to stand down and not show up for May 2 and/or other events? I know it is probably a long shot, but there would seem to be little risk in quietly doing so, he added. The cluelessness of the City of Berkeley doesnt stop here. It appears that severalBerkeley Council members, including the Mayor, are subscribed to a Google group called Occupy Bay Area Trainersthe relicsof Occupy Wall Street movement in the area. In anemail chain,received by multiple council members and the Mayor, City of Berkeley volunteer Commissioner Phoebe Anne Sorgen suggestedstarting a peace force to stop the violence withthings like bubbles singing, and laughter yoga. Envision Wavy Gravy, bubbles, singing, laughter yoga! Occupella. Buddhist Peace Meditators. Fencing with sponge noodles, she wrote. Will Edwin set up the Empathy tent? How about a volleyball game in the middle of the park and/or a square dance? Will Code Pink pls bring peace symbol cookies to pass out, and daisies. Interestingly, the commissioners suggestions for an Empathy Tent was actually realizedat a protest at UC Berkeley on April 27. Sorgenwent on to suggest people shouldnt malignthe black blocananarchist tacticwhen a mob of activists wearing masks committ violencebecause most were ok. And dont malign the black bloc. Tho they have their bad apples, and provocateurs take advantage of the (tear gas protection) bandana look regrettably, most were ok and, as usual, they also provided the medics last time, she wrote. If this is the best City of Berkeley can come up with, the problem of radical extremists on the streets will continue.
