Tommy Robinson (activist) – Wikipedia

Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon (born 27 November 1982[3]), known by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson, and previously as Andrew McMaster and Paul Harris,[4] is a far-right activist[5] who co-founded and served as spokesman and leader of the English Defence League (EDL),[6] from which he resigned in 2013. For a short time in 2012, he was joint party vice-chairman of the British Freedom Party.

He led the EDL from 2009 until 8 October 2013, when he was persuaded to leave the organisation by the think tank Quilliam. He continued as an activist, and in 2015 became involved with the development of Pegida UK, a British chapter of the German-based Pegida organisation.[7]

In May 2018, Robinson began serving a 10-month prison sentence for contempt of court after publishing a Facebook Live video of defendants entering a law court, contrary to a court order to prevent reporting those specific trials while proceedings are ongoing.[8] An earlier 3-month suspended sentences for the same offence was activated at the same time.

He was a writer for The Rebel Media and the author of an autobiography, Enemy of the State, and Mohammed’s Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam, co-authored by Peter McLoughlin.

Robinson was born Stephen Christopher Yaxley[9] in Luton. In an interview with Victoria Derbyshire on BBC Radio Five live in 2010, he said that his parents “were Irish immigrants to this country”.[10] His mother, who worked at a local bakery,[11] remarried when Robinson was still young; his stepfather, Thomas Lennon,[1] whose surname Robinson took, worked at the local Vauxhall car plant.[11]

Robinson married in 2011 and is the father of three children.[12] He owns a sunbed shop in Luton.[13] Robinson claims his friends include both black and Muslim people.[14][15]

According to Robinson, after he left school he applied to study aircraft engineering at Luton Airport: “I got an apprenticeship six hundred people applied for, and they took four people on”. He qualified in 2003 after five years of study, but then he was convicted for drunken assault of an off-duty police officer.[11] He served a 12-month prison sentence,[16] and as a result lost his job at Luton Airport owing to security measures imposed since the September 11 attacks.[11]

Robinson joined the British National Party in 2004. When questioned about this by the BBC’s Andrew Neil in June 2013, he said that he had left after one year, saying, “I didn’t know Nick Griffin was in the National Front, I didn’t know non-whites couldn’t join the organisation. I joined, I saw what it was about, it was not for me”.[1]

As leader of the EDL, Robinson regularly wore a bullet-proof vest when appearing in public, telling the BBC that his business and his home have been attacked, and that he had been personally threatened by armed Muslims.[13]

Despite being accused of racism and antisemitism, Robinson denies both,[14] going so far as to declare his support for the Jewish people and Israel, calling himself a Zionist.[17]

Lennon uses the alias Tommy Robinson, taking the name of a prominent member of the “Men In Gear” (MIG) football hooligan crew, which follows Luton Town Football Club.[18] Robinson was involved with the group United Peoples of Luton, formed in response to a March 2009 protest against Royal Anglian Regiment troops returning from the Afghan War[19] being attacked by the Islamist groups Al-Muhajiroun and Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah.[20] Robinson stated that he had been prompted to found the EDL after he had read a newspaper article about local Islamists attempting to recruit men outside a bakery in Luton to fight for the Taliban in Afghanistan.[11] In August 2009, he became leader of the newly established English Defence League with his cousin, Kevin Carroll, its deputy leader.[21] Robinson has appeared masked at protests.[16] Although Robinson repeatedly insisted from the early days of the organisation that the EDL was “against the rise of radical Islam” and that its members “aren’t against Islam”, its rank and file were noted for including football hooligans and members who described themselves as anti-Muslim.[18][22] Robinson founded the European Defence League, a co-ordination of groups similar to the EDL operating in different European countries.[citation needed]

Robinson was assaulted on 22 December 2011 after stopping his car due to another car flashing its lights at him. He said that a group of three men attacked and beat him, until they were stopped by the arrival of a “good Samaritan”. Robinson said that the attackers were of Asian appearance.[23]

In 2012 Robinson announced that he had joined the British Freedom Party (BFP). He was appointed its joint vice-chairman along with Carroll after the EDL and the BFP agreed an electoral pact in 2011.[24] However, on 11 October 2012, Robinson resigned from the BFP to concentrate on EDL activities.[25]

Robinson was convicted in 2011 of using “threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour” during a fight between supporters of Luton Town and Newport County in Luton the previous year. Robinson reportedly led the group of Luton fans, and played an integral part in starting a 100-man brawl, during which he chanted “EDL till I die”. He was given a 12-month community rehabilitation order with 150 hours’ unpaid work and a three-year ban from attending football matches.[26]

Robinson was arrested again after an EDL demonstration in Tower Hamlets in September 2011 for breach of bail conditions, as he had been banned from attending that demonstration. Robinson later began a hunger strike while on remand in HM Prison Bedford, saying that he was a “political prisoner of the state”,[27] and refused to eat what he believed was halal meat.[28] A handful of EDL supporters protested outside the prison in support of Robinson during his incarceration; the support peaked at a turnout of 100 protesters on 10 September.[29] Robinson was released on bail on 12 September.[30]

On 29 September 2011, Robinson was convicted of common assault after headbutting a fellow EDL member at a rally in Blackburn in April that year.[31] He was sentences to 12 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for 12 months.[32] Robinson said that the assault had happened because of a confrontation with a neo-Nazi who had joined the EDL.[33][34]

On 8 November 2011, Robinson held a protest on the rooftop of the FIFA headquarters in Zrich against FIFA’s ruling that the England national football team could not wear a Remembrance poppy symbol on their shirts. For this he was fined 3,000 and jailed for three days.[35]

In October 2012, Robinson was arrested and held on the charge of having entered the United States illegally. Robinson pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court to using someone else’s passport to travel to the United States in September 2012, and was sentenced in January of 2013 to 10 months’ imprisonment.[36][37] Robinson had used a passport in the name of Andrew McMaster to board a Virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow to New York.[38] He had been banned from entering the USA due to a drugs offence. He was detained by authorities in New York as an illegal immigrant but left the USA the next day using a passport in the name of Paul Harris to travel back to the UK.[39] He was released on electronic tag on 22 February 2013.[40] On being released, Robinson told the BBC that he was dismayed to discover that the EDL’s ranks had been swollen with racist and neo-Nazi supporters.[41]

In April 2012, Robinson took part in a programme in the BBC’s television series The Big Questions in which far-right extremism was debated. Mo Ansar took part in the same programme, and invited Robinson to join him and his family for dinner. This resulted in several meetings over the next 18 months to discuss Islam, Islamism and the Muslim community, accompanied by a BBC team which created the documentary When Tommy met Mo.[41] Robinson and Ansar visited the think tank Quilliam and Robinson witnessed a debate between Quilliam’s director, Maajid Nawaz, and Ansar about human rights.[41] On 8 October 2013, Quilliam held a press conference with Robinson and Kevin Carroll to announce that Robinson and Carroll had left the EDL. Robinson said that he had been considering leaving for a long time because of concerns over the “dangers of far-right extremism”.[42][15] Robinson said that it was still his aim to “counter Islamist ideology […] not with violence but with democratic ideas”. Ten other senior figures left the EDL with Robinson and Carroll, and Tim Ablitt became the EDL’s new leader.[42][43]

When Robinson was questioned by The Guardian about having blamed “‘every single Muslim’ for ‘getting away’ with the 7 July bombings, and for calling Islam a fascist and violent religion, he held up his hands and said, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry.'” Robinson also said that he would now give evidence to the police to help in their investigation of racists within the EDL. Robinson added that “his future work would involve taking on radicalism on all fronts”.[44][45] Robinson claimed in his autobiography that he was paid 2,000 per month for Quilliam to take credit for his leaving the EDL, which a Quilliam spokesperson denied.[46][47]

In November 2012, Robinson was charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit fraud by misrepresentation in relation to a mortgage application, along with five other defendants.[48] He pleaded guilty to two charges and in January 2014 was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment.[49][37] Robinson was attacked by several fellow prisoners in HM Prison Woodhill.[50][51] Following news of the attack, Maajid Nawaz wrote to the Secretary of State for Justice, Chris Grayling, asking for Robinson’s situation to be urgently addressed.[51][52] Shortly after this incident, Robinson was moved to HM Prison Winchester. Robinson told Jamie Bartlett, a director of the think tank Demos: “In Woodhill, I experienced Islam the gang. […] In Winchester, I have experienced Islam the religion.” Robinson made friends with several Muslim prisoners, referring to them as “great lads […] I cannot speak highly enough of the Muslim inmates I’m now living with”.[53] In June 2014 Robinson was released on licence. The terms of his early release included having no contact with the EDL until the end of his original sentence in June 2015.[53] He was due to talk to the Oxford Union in October 2014, but was recalled to prison before the event for breaching the terms of his licence.[54] He was ultimately released on 14 November 2014.[55]

Robinson spoke to the Oxford Union on 26 November 2014. Unite Against Fascism (UAF) protested against his appearance, criticising the union for allowing him the platform when, according to UAF, he had not renounced the views of the EDL. Robinson told the audience he was not allowed to talk about certain issues because he was out on prison licence. He said, “I regain my freedom of speech on the 22 July 2015.” He criticised “politicians, the media and police for failing to tackle certain criminal activities because of the fear of being labelled Islamophobic.”[56] He claimed that Woodhill prison had become “an ISIS training camp”, and that radicals were “running the wings”.[57] After finishing the licence at the end of his conviction, Robinson returned to anti-Islam demonstrations with Pegida, a German organisation founded in Dresden amid the European migrant crisis. Addressing a Pegida anti-Islam rally in October 2015, Robinson spoke out against what he perceived to be the threat of Islamist terrorists posing as refugees.[58] He announced the creation of a British chapter of Pegida in December 2015. He affirmed that alcohol and fighting would not be permitted because “It’s too serious now for that stuff”, and told The Daily Telegraph that a mass demonstration would take place across Europe on 6 February 2016.[7] On 14 February 2016, Robinson was attacked and hospitalised after leaving a nightclub in Essex.[59]

Robinson travelled to watch UEFA Euro 2016 in France and demonstrated with a T-shirt and English flag ridiculing the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Bedfordshire Police gave him a football banning order on his return; his lawyer Alison Gurden accused the police of a “campaign of harassment” and said that they had equated the proscribed terrorist group with all Muslims in their action.[60] In September, a judge at Luton Magistrates’ Court dismissed the case, calling the prosecution’s evidence “vague” and “cagey”.[61]

On 27 August 2016, eighteen Luton Town football supporters, including Robinson and his family, were ejected from a Cambridge pub on the day of the Cambridge United versus Luton football match by police. Robinson claimed he had been victimised, and complaints were submitted to Cambridge Police.[62]

Robinson became a correspondent for The Rebel Media, a Canadian political and social commentary website, in February 2017.[63][non-primary source needed] In May 2017, he was arrested for contempt of court after he attempted to take video of the defendants in a child rape case outside Canterbury Crown Court.[64][65]

Robinson responded on Twitter to the 2017 Finsbury Park attack writing, “The mosque where the attack happened tonight has a long history of creating terrorists & radical jihadists & promoting hate & segregation,” and, “I’m not justifying it, I’ve said many times if government or police don’t sort these centres of hate they will create monsters as seen tonight.” Robinson’s statements were widely criticised in the media as inciting hatred.[66] Appearing the next morning on Good Morning Britain, Robinson held up the Quran and described it as a “violent and cursed book”. The host, Piers Morgan, accused him of “stirring up hatred like a bigoted lunatic”, and Robinson’s appearance drew a number of complaints to Ofcom.[67] Robinson was involved in a fight at Royal Ascot later in June 2017, for which Morgan criticised him on Twitter.[68]

In May 2017, Robinson was convicted of contempt of court for using a camera inside Canterbury Crown Court and received a suspended sentence.[69] According to Judge Heather Norton, “this is not about free speech, not about the freedom of the press, nor about legitimate journalism, and not about political correctness. It is about justice and ensuring that a trial can be carried out justly and fairly, it’s about being innocent until proven guilty. It is about preserving the integrity of the jury to continue without people being intimidated or being affected by irresponsible and inaccurate ‘reporting’, if that’s what it was”.[70]

On 25 May 2018, Robinson was arrested for a breach of the peace while live streaming outside Leeds Crown Court[70][71] during a trial on which reporting restrictions had been ordered by the judge.[72]

Following Robinson’s arrest, Judge Geoffrey Marson QC[73] issued a further reporting restriction on Robinson’s case, prohibiting any reporting of Robinson’s case or the grooming trial until the latter case is complete.[74][71][75] The jailing of Robinson drew condemnation from right wing circles.[76]

The UK Independence Party leader Gerard Batten MEP expressed concern about the proceedings and the ban on reporting.[77] Robinson attracted sympathy from several right-wing politicians in Europe including the Dutch Party for Freedom leader Geert Wilders[71] and the German Bundestag member Petr Bystron.[78]

During the weekend following Robinson’s arrest, hundreds of his supporters rallied outside Downing Street, calling for the government to “Free Tommy”[71][79] and an online petition for his release had more than 500,000 signatures.[80]

On 29 May, the reporting restriction was lifted with regard to Robinson, following a challenge by journalists, and the media reported that Robinson had admitted contempt of court by publishing information that could prejudice an ongoing trial, and had been sentenced to 13 months’ imprisonment.[8]

Marson sentenced Robinson to ten months for contempt of court and his previous three months’ suspended sentence was activated because of the breach. Robinson’s lawyer said that Robinson felt “deep regret” after comprehending the potential consequences of his behaviour.[81] Robinson was told that if a retrial had to be held as a result of his actions the cost could be “hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pounds”.[81][82]

Robinson has written or co-written two books:

Save Tommy Robinson – The Rebel

VICTORY:Tommy Robinson thanks supporters after court victory

Published on May 22, 2017: Tommy thanks all of his supporters for their help.

UPDATE: Tommy Robinson goes to court on Monday – Here’s how you can help

Published on May 18, 2017: Caolan Robertson reviews Tommy’s arrest and forthcoming court date.

UPDATE:Tommys free! But were not done yet…

Great news! Our lawyers rushed to court today, and Tommy is out on bail.

But the matter will be back in court on May 22nd which means were not out of the woods yet. The good news is, well have more time to put together a powerful legal argument in defence of Tommys free speech and freedom of the press.

In the meantime, the judge has placed a publication ban on us, which we must respect so we cannot get into the details.

Thank you for your support because of you, we were able to get Tommy back home to his wife and kids. And hell be back on the streets doing great, independent journalism tomorrow.

Were not out of the woods yet on legal fees, though. If you are able to help us fund our court appearance on May 22nd, please help out, whether its a dollar, a pound or a Euro, we need to get Tommy the best defence we can.

On May 10, 2017, just after 4 a.m., the Bedfordshire Police went to Tommy Robinsons house, banged on his door, woke up his entirefamily,arrested Tommy, and took him to jail.

CLICK HERE TO HELP FUND TOMMY’S LEGAL DEFENCE

What did he do to deserve such a shocking visit? Why did the police have to come to his home in the dead of night upsetting hiswife and scaring his children?

Ill tell you what he did, because I was there with him.Two days ago, Tommy Robinson and I went to the Canterbury Crown Court,to report on the trial of an alleged Muslim rape gang.

Thats it. Thats all we did.Thats why Tommy was arrested.

See, Tommy and I both work full-time for TheRebel.Media. And unlike the mainstream media that prefers to cover up horrific crimeslike that, we report them. These four Muslim men are on trial for allegedly gang-raping a 16-year-old girl who wandered into their kebabshop asking for directions.

Tommy and I went to court to cover the story and to ask the accused men some questions. Thats what real journalists are supposedto do.

Incredibly, when court officers saw Tommy, theyactively worked with the accused men to sneak them out of the courtthrough another door, so we couldnt film them!

Just whose side are the police on?

Well, we found out at 4 a.m. this morning, didnt we?

The police claim that Tommy was in “contempt of court” for filming his report outside the courthouse for livestreaming some quick comments from his cell phone while standing on the court house steps.

But thats where journalistsreport on court cases all the time. Tommy didnt do anything unusual.

He didnt film anyone other than himself. And when a court official asked him to move, he did.

We did our work, and then we left. If Tommy had done anything wrong, why didnt the police say something, right then and there?

Why would Bedfordshire police, nearly two hours drive away from Canterbury, be involved at all?

Why did they raid his home at 4 a.m.?

And whydid they only arrest Tommy and not me and our cameraman, who were there with him?

Is it because Jon Boutcher, Bedfordshires Chief Constable, seesTommys journalism as a threat, and wants to intimidate him? This has happened to Tommy before time and time again.

But this time, its different. Because this time, weve got friends.Weve got you.

And heres what I think we need to do together:

1. Sign our petition to Chief Boutcher:”We demand that the Bedfordshire Police stop harassing Tommy Robinson, the UKs leading independent journalist, and his family.

Please clickhereto sign the petition.

2. Help us fight back in the court of law.Weve hired a leading law firm to go to bat for Tommy. Even before sunrise, they were working to get Tommy back home to his family. Theyre still at it right now. But lawyers cost money. Will you please help us chip in, to save Tommy?

Please clickhereto help defray our legal costs.

Were doing important journalism thats in the public interest. That includes telling the truth about the wave of Muslim rape gangs that have exploited thousands of British girls.

Were going to keep doing our journalism even if politically correct police chiefs dont like it.

But for now, we have to save Tommy. He has been there for us now lets be there for him.

Yours truly,

Caolan RobertsonTheRebel.Media

P.S. As I write this, Tommy is still in jail. All for a brief video commentary on his cell phone, on the steps of the court house. Lets get him home to his family. Please clickhereto help.

P.P.S. Please tell your friends to visitwww.SaveTommy.com and post that as your Facebook status.

We demand that the Bedfordshire Police stop harassing Tommy Robinson, the UKs leading independent journalist.

Identity Europa: Another Successful Mission | Logical Meme

Chalk this up as a very successful Identity Europa mission:

A memorial created by a white supremacist group to honor an Australian woman killed by a Somali officer last summer has been removed by Minneapolis police

In July, Justine Ruszczyk Damond, 40, was shot and killed by Officer Mohamed Noor after she called to report a possible sexual assault. Noors partner, Matthew Harrity, was reportedly startled by a loud noise near their squad car.

Damond died at the scene. No charges have been filed

Identity Evropa, a white nationalist group founded in Northern California, said on its Twitter account it put up the memorial Friday. The group posted pictures of the memorial with a caption reading: One family will be having an incomplete Christmas this year. On Friday, Identity Evropa activists created a shrine for Justine Damond at the 5th Precinct in Minneapolis, MN, where her Somali-born killer whom a judge recently decided not to charge was assigned.

What other sort of awful racist, hateful imagery was at IEs memorial?

The memorial to Damond consisted of a framed portrait, candles, roses and signs reading, United We Stand. The Star Tribune reported that only the extinguished candles remained on Saturday night.

Getting Jacob Frey, Minneapolis mayor-elect, to mention Identity Europa (or Identity Evropa) by name in a press release is, by my accounting, a success.

I condemn the perpetrators and their tactics in the strongest possible terms, Frey said in a statement. Identity Evropa and those who share their values have no place in our city. Hate has no place in Minneapolis. Period.

Of the cold feet The Cathedral has towards prosecuting Noor:

Hennepin County Attorney Michael O. Freeman has yet to decide whether to file criminal charges against Noor. Freeman expressed frustration during a union holiday reception earlier this month, telling activists he did not have enough evidence to charge Noor and said investigators havent done their job.

He also suggested that Noors refusal to speak to investigators had put prosecutors in a difficult position.

I have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, (that) the moment he shot the gun, he feared for his life. And he used force because he thought he was gonna be killed, Freeman said. But I cant. He wont answer my questions because he doesnt have to, OK?

Freeman later apologized to investigators and said his comments had been ill-advised.

Fash the Campus: Identity Europa, Millenial Recruitment …

What was the purpose of having an Alt Right Safe Space, other than to mock the idea that people need safe spaces sometimes?

When the idea was announced only a few days ago it seemed like an insulting media stunt, and it was, but it was also a strategic point for the growing Alt Right and its attempts to market racism and bigotry to Millenials. Richard Spencer of the Radix Journal and the National Policy Institute put together a video and a plan, to promote an outdoor meeting at the historic Sproul Plaza on the University of California and Berkeley campus. This was a place where 60s radicals joined together to confront the Vietnam War, and to build the Berkeley Free Speech movement. The point they were trying to make is that Berkeley is no longer a bastion of free speech because of the Political Correctness that has run rampant. Though this seems like the embarrassing overreach of angry children who are stomping their feet about no longer being able to say the N-word in public, what they are tapping into is a feeling in much of middle America of not understanding the new developments that have come in confronting interpersonal oppression.

The event was put together and manned primarily by Richard Spencer along with Nathan Damigo and Johnny Monoxide. Damigo is running the organization Identity Europa, whose name seems intended to conjure up the French organization Generation Identity that the American Alt Right often fawns over. That organization is built as a more radical alternative to the fascist Front National political party run by Marine Le Pen, which they think is too reformist and populist. Generation Identity has been pushing the Identitarian identification, which brings them somewhat in line with the fascist philosophy of the Nouvelle Droite movement and people like Alain de Benoit and Guillaume Faye.

Identity Europa began as the National Youth Front, but after a Christian group of the same name threatened to sue, Damigo changed it. That organization went into disarray when Nathans co-founder,Angelo John Gage, left the organization in October. When it was still the National Youth Front it had a back and forth relationship with the fascist and populist American Freedom Party, where they automatically registered NYF members with the AFP when they turned 35. NYF hit more hurdles when their fundraising efforts were canceled by both GoFundMe and IndieGoGo for violating the terms of service, which comes from the fact that you can only strategically phrase things so much before the open racism becomes obvious. The only real press that the NYF got on campuses was for trying to target professors atArizona State University and Boston University for being anti-white.

Nathan is an example of the kind of middle ground that the Alt Right has always been on. Good looking, well spoken, dresses and combs his hair like a hip Banana Republic model; he is a good advertisement as he looks far from a Klansman (looks a lot like Richard, to be exact). He is an Iraq war veteran, but he is also a felon for a hate crime. Several years ago, after he returned from Iraq, he brutally attacked a Muslim man on the street, and robbed him. He went to prison for this, and, to be fair, is generally publicly apologetic for his behavior, but it actually reveals a driving set of perspectives that lie under his fashy hair. He has hoped that by being open about his conviction he would be spared of ridicule, but it is actually just provides more background about who he is and what has inspired his organizing program.

Though Identity Europa seems to be little more than his brainchild and attempt to coordinate with young people, they seem to attempt to be largely the same project that Youth for Western Civilization, the Traditionalist Youth Network/Workers Party, and the various White Student Unions are. They wish to make whiteness an identity battle, and present white advocacy as the same as Black and Latino rights organizations, including reaching out to communities of color to find allies of color who think that whites are being discriminated against on college campuses.

Johnny Monoxide is another level of racism piled on, which may be a testament to the way that the Alt Right has been mainstreamed by gutter podcasts like the Daily Shoah. In fact, Richard Spencer had moved on from even using the term Alt Right and was simply referring to himself as an Identitarian in the French model, but after places like The Right Stuff started popularizing the phrase he returned to it. Monoxide is best known for hosting the short-lived podcast on the Right Stuff/Daily Shoah podcast network, The Current Year Tonight. This is a joke from the Daily Shoah lexicon referring to how liberals will respond to racism on social media by saying something like racism, its 2016, so now they will just respond by saying its the current year. Monoxide matches the angry racialism of Mike Enoch and Seventh Son, yet, unlike them, he shows his face in videos quite often. In a recent set of videos at the Burlingame, California Donald Trump appearance, he made a series of videos where he mocked protesters, using racial slurs and calling the Jew the Jew. He was interviewed and filmed heavily by Infowars, the conspiracy website that has taken a hard right turn and now spends most of their time mocking women and leftists.

The entire event was live streamed by Red Ice Radio, the white nationalist podcast network that has become one of the largest in their movement. From a semi-professional studio built in their living room, married team Lana and Henrik provided stunted commentary as Johnny Monoxide live streamed from what appeared to be his phone and was able to hear them in an earpiece. Monoxide doesnt seem too worried about being found out in the world for his behavior because he is a union electrician in the Bay Area. This doesnt stop consequences from a counter-movement, but he is right that unions vessels of protecting their membership.

The event went as many expected it to go, including the organizers. Generally it was Spencer, Monoxide, and Damigo, and a couple of simple student protesters holding broad Alt Right sloganed signs as people came up and tried to argue with them. It was often an attempt to slip the group up on some kind of rhetoric, and a few Trump supporters, including students of color, came through to defend the group of racists. At one point, a loud man came through who obviously knew this was in progress and what it was. He identified Spencer as a suit and tie Nazi and called out Monoxide for being a union electrician. Spencer yelled back for the man to stop whitesplaining to the mostly non-white crowd, a move that he will likely be bringing up in speeches and podcasts for months with a self-congratulating smile.

While there were dozens of people that came through the square, none of them were necessarily set to argue the point because, as with most people, they were not trained to argue with a fascist whose entire purpose there is to bait you into an argument. Jack Donovan, a white nationalist allied male tribalist who rolls in these Alt Right circles, has a new book out calling Becoming a Barbarian. It is generally masculanist nonsense, yet one section has something that we thought was interesting to folks looking to confront fascism. Arguments, he says, are only between friends. There is no point in arguing with enemies since you have no stake in changing their mind. Let them have their ideas, and save disagreements between people that you really do want to find unity with.

We will never find political or social unity with Damigo and Spencer, and the arguments themselves end up being relatively politically useless. They want to get you to engage with them so they can hopefully have a chance to pontificate more rhetoric and then use very well planned verbal prose to try and sow doubt. Most people have not sat there and trained themselves to make arguments about race and IQ, to know the latest archeological evidence about pre-colonial Africa, to understand the nuance in race and crime statistics. Spencer knows this, and so he can use the very small amount of evidence he has to support his wild ideas and most people are not ready to combat it. In this case, he knows that getting people into the argument is a win. Most of the people in the square that day were strong voices that advocated for inclusivity and diversity. A conversation still should be had about what anti-fascists call the no platform approach, and why we should leave our arguments between comrades and those who are not open racists. While those people argued with them, Lana and Henrik mocked them on air, using racial language and laughing at each impassioned plea against racism.

Spencer and Damigo intended to use the Berkeley Alt Right Safe Space experiment to see if they were going to do this on other college campuses. Given the way that they discussed, promoted, and reflected on it, they likely will do this again.

This is not the last time that they will show up on campus, but a college anti-fascist movement can be equipped to handle their push when it returns.

Alan Dershowitz, A Schmuck – Wonkette

There are perks to being the only Harvard professor willing to shill for the Bush League Mussolini. Everyone else has to haul ass to the Fox studio and sit for hair and makeup. Not Alan Dershowitz! He just parks his laptop in Pee Wee’s playhouse and Skypes in that rant. Is he even wearing pants? We hope never to find out!

More to the point, what the hell is he even saying here?

O RLY? Alan Dershowitz is joining the fight against pre-trial detention? Did the bronzed braintrust know they were inviting a Social Justice Warrior to join them on the leather couch? No wonder they made him call in from a fish bowl!

Yes, it is to America’s everlasting shame that we have over half a million people locked up without any determination of guilt.

Graphic via Prison Policy Initiative

We set bail without regard for a defendant’s ability to pay, and we spend hundreds of millions of dollars jailing people who pose no danger at all to their communities. And if you live in Maryland Districts 11 or 23B, your chance to get rid of Delegates Bobby Zirkin and Joseph Vallario — the second- and third-highest recipients of bail bondsmen’s campaign contributions in the entire country — is coming on June 26. Why does little Maryland receive almost as much in bail bond campaign cash as California or Florida? DUNNO! We should get Dersh on that ASAP!

But we digress! Because Alan Dershowitz is only invoking those unjustly incarcerated brown dudes to pretend that poor Paul Manafort has been thrown in jail based solely on the indictment. And Alan Dershowitz knows that’s total horseshit.

Last week, Paul Manafort was a free man — albeit one who had turned millions of dollars in assets over to the federal courts and was sporting a set of matching ankle bracelets. Do poor brown dudes get to spend the night in their own beds when they are indicted for all the crimes? NO, THEY DO NOT. So it is stunning chutzpah for Dershowitz to pretend that poor Paul Manafort was railroaded by an unjust legal system. The guy had every advantage of race and class. All he had to do was quit criming for a hot second. And he couldn’t even do that!

Paul Manafort is in jail because he was a goddamn idiot who allegedly sent WhatsApp messages coaching witnesses in his own trial, and saved the messages to his own iCloud. That’s “bless our hearts and other parts”-level stupid.

And we expect this illiterate dipshit to pretend that Manafort was “sentenced.”

But not a guy who taught at Harvard Law School for fifty years! Judge Berman Jackson had “probable cause to believe that [Manafort] has committed a Federal, State, or local crime while on release” — i.e. obstruction of justice and false statements to the FBI — and that’s why he’s going to jail. Which Alan Dershowitz knows goddamn well. So he needs to close up his laptop and knock off that live webcam porn show he puts on in his attic for the drooling morons at Fox.

Seriously, Zaydie! This is a shandah, and it’s fucking beneath you!

Populist-Socialism: The Economy of the White Ethno-State

Abstract Little consideration is given to the economic foundations of a White ethno-state. While many in the Alt-Right know conceptually what an ethno-state should be like in the abstract sense of demographics, the minutia of public and economic policy to obtain or maintain such a state is lost.

Tommy Robinson (activist) – Wikipedia

Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon (born 27 November 1982[3]), known by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson, and previously as Andrew McMaster and Paul Harris,[4] is a far-right activist[5] who co-founded and served as spokesman and leader of the English Defence League (EDL),[6] from which he resigned in 2013. For a short time in 2012, he was joint party vice-chairman of the British Freedom Party. He led the EDL from 2009 until 8 October 2013, when he was persuaded to leave the organisation by the think tank Quilliam. He continued as an activist, and in 2015 became involved with the development of Pegida UK, a British chapter of the German-based Pegida organisation.[7] In May 2018, Robinson began serving a 10-month prison sentence for contempt of court after publishing a Facebook Live video of defendants entering a law court, contrary to a court order to prevent reporting those specific trials while proceedings are ongoing.[8] An earlier 3-month suspended sentences for the same offence was activated at the same time. He was a writer for The Rebel Media and the author of an autobiography, Enemy of the State, and Mohammed’s Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam, co-authored by Peter McLoughlin. Robinson was born Stephen Christopher Yaxley[9] in Luton. In an interview with Victoria Derbyshire on BBC Radio Five live in 2010, he said that his parents “were Irish immigrants to this country”.[10] His mother, who worked at a local bakery,[11] remarried when Robinson was still young; his stepfather, Thomas Lennon,[1] whose surname Robinson took, worked at the local Vauxhall car plant.[11] Robinson married in 2011 and is the father of three children.[12] He owns a sunbed shop in Luton.[13] Robinson claims his friends include both black and Muslim people.[14][15] According to Robinson, after he left school he applied to study aircraft engineering at Luton Airport: “I got an apprenticeship six hundred people applied for, and they took four people on”. He qualified in 2003 after five years of study, but then he was convicted for drunken assault of an off-duty police officer.[11] He served a 12-month prison sentence,[16] and as a result lost his job at Luton Airport owing to security measures imposed since the September 11 attacks.[11] Robinson joined the British National Party in 2004. When questioned about this by the BBC’s Andrew Neil in June 2013, he said that he had left after one year, saying, “I didn’t know Nick Griffin was in the National Front, I didn’t know non-whites couldn’t join the organisation. I joined, I saw what it was about, it was not for me”.[1] As leader of the EDL, Robinson regularly wore a bullet-proof vest when appearing in public, telling the BBC that his business and his home have been attacked, and that he had been personally threatened by armed Muslims.[13] Despite being accused of racism and antisemitism, Robinson denies both,[14] going so far as to declare his support for the Jewish people and Israel, calling himself a Zionist.[17] Lennon uses the alias Tommy Robinson, taking the name of a prominent member of the “Men In Gear” (MIG) football hooligan crew, which follows Luton Town Football Club.[18] Robinson was involved with the group United Peoples of Luton, formed in response to a March 2009 protest against Royal Anglian Regiment troops returning from the Afghan War[19] being attacked by the Islamist groups Al-Muhajiroun and Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah.[20] Robinson stated that he had been prompted to found the EDL after he had read a newspaper article about local Islamists attempting to recruit men outside a bakery in Luton to fight for the Taliban in Afghanistan.[11] In August 2009, he became leader of the newly established English Defence League with his cousin, Kevin Carroll, its deputy leader.[21] Robinson has appeared masked at protests.[16] Although Robinson repeatedly insisted from the early days of the organisation that the EDL was “against the rise of radical Islam” and that its members “aren’t against Islam”, its rank and file were noted for including football hooligans and members who described themselves as anti-Muslim.[18][22] Robinson founded the European Defence League, a co-ordination of groups similar to the EDL operating in different European countries.[citation needed] Robinson was assaulted on 22 December 2011 after stopping his car due to another car flashing its lights at him. He said that a group of three men attacked and beat him, until they were stopped by the arrival of a “good Samaritan”. Robinson said that the attackers were of Asian appearance.[23] In 2012 Robinson announced that he had joined the British Freedom Party (BFP). He was appointed its joint vice-chairman along with Carroll after the EDL and the BFP agreed an electoral pact in 2011.[24] However, on 11 October 2012, Robinson resigned from the BFP to concentrate on EDL activities.[25] Robinson was convicted in 2011 of using “threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour” during a fight between supporters of Luton Town and Newport County in Luton the previous year. Robinson reportedly led the group of Luton fans, and played an integral part in starting a 100-man brawl, during which he chanted “EDL till I die”. He was given a 12-month community rehabilitation order with 150 hours’ unpaid work and a three-year ban from attending football matches.[26] Robinson was arrested again after an EDL demonstration in Tower Hamlets in September 2011 for breach of bail conditions, as he had been banned from attending that demonstration. Robinson later began a hunger strike while on remand in HM Prison Bedford, saying that he was a “political prisoner of the state”,[27] and refused to eat what he believed was halal meat.[28] A handful of EDL supporters protested outside the prison in support of Robinson during his incarceration; the support peaked at a turnout of 100 protesters on 10 September.[29] Robinson was released on bail on 12 September.[30] On 29 September 2011, Robinson was convicted of common assault after headbutting a fellow EDL member at a rally in Blackburn in April that year.[31] He was sentences to 12 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for 12 months.[32] Robinson said that the assault had happened because of a confrontation with a neo-Nazi who had joined the EDL.[33][34] On 8 November 2011, Robinson held a protest on the rooftop of the FIFA headquarters in Zrich against FIFA’s ruling that the England national football team could not wear a Remembrance poppy symbol on their shirts. For this he was fined 3,000 and jailed for three days.[35] In October 2012, Robinson was arrested and held on the charge of having entered the United States illegally. Robinson pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court to using someone else’s passport to travel to the United States in September 2012, and was sentenced in January of 2013 to 10 months’ imprisonment.[36][37] Robinson had used a passport in the name of Andrew McMaster to board a Virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow to New York.[38] He had been banned from entering the USA due to a drugs offence. He was detained by authorities in New York as an illegal immigrant but left the USA the next day using a passport in the name of Paul Harris to travel back to the UK.[39] He was released on electronic tag on 22 February 2013.[40] On being released, Robinson told the BBC that he was dismayed to discover that the EDL’s ranks had been swollen with racist and neo-Nazi supporters.[41] In April 2012, Robinson took part in a programme in the BBC’s television series The Big Questions in which far-right extremism was debated. Mo Ansar took part in the same programme, and invited Robinson to join him and his family for dinner. This resulted in several meetings over the next 18 months to discuss Islam, Islamism and the Muslim community, accompanied by a BBC team which created the documentary When Tommy met Mo.[41] Robinson and Ansar visited the think tank Quilliam and Robinson witnessed a debate between Quilliam’s director, Maajid Nawaz, and Ansar about human rights.[41] On 8 October 2013, Quilliam held a press conference with Robinson and Kevin Carroll to announce that Robinson and Carroll had left the EDL. Robinson said that he had been considering leaving for a long time because of concerns over the “dangers of far-right extremism”.[42][15] Robinson said that it was still his aim to “counter Islamist ideology not with violence but with democratic ideas”. Ten other senior figures left the EDL with Robinson and Carroll, and Tim Ablitt became the EDL’s new leader.[42][43] When Robinson was questioned by The Guardian about having blamed “‘every single Muslim’ for ‘getting away’ with the 7 July bombings, and for calling Islam a fascist and violent religion, he held up his hands and said, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry.'” Robinson also said that he would now give evidence to the police to help in their investigation of racists within the EDL. Robinson added that “his future work would involve taking on radicalism on all fronts”.[44][45] Robinson claimed in his autobiography that he was paid 2,000 per month for Quilliam to take credit for his leaving the EDL, which a Quilliam spokesperson denied.[46][47] In November 2012, Robinson was charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit fraud by misrepresentation in relation to a mortgage application, along with five other defendants.[48] He pleaded guilty to two charges and in January 2014 was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment.[49][37] Robinson was attacked by several fellow prisoners in HM Prison Woodhill.[50][51] Following news of the attack, Maajid Nawaz wrote to the Secretary of State for Justice, Chris Grayling, asking for Robinson’s situation to be urgently addressed.[51][52] Shortly after this incident, Robinson was moved to HM Prison Winchester. Robinson told Jamie Bartlett, a director of the think tank Demos: “In Woodhill, I experienced Islam the gang. In Winchester, I have experienced Islam the religion.” Robinson made friends with several Muslim prisoners, referring to them as “great lads I cannot speak highly enough of the Muslim inmates I’m now living with”.[53] In June 2014 Robinson was released on licence. The terms of his early release included having no contact with the EDL until the end of his original sentence in June 2015.[53] He was due to talk to the Oxford Union in October 2014, but was recalled to prison before the event for breaching the terms of his licence.[54] He was ultimately released on 14 November 2014.[55] Robinson spoke to the Oxford Union on 26 November 2014. Unite Against Fascism (UAF) protested against his appearance, criticising the union for allowing him the platform when, according to UAF, he had not renounced the views of the EDL. Robinson told the audience he was not allowed to talk about certain issues because he was out on prison licence. He said, “I regain my freedom of speech on the 22 July 2015.” He criticised “politicians, the media and police for failing to tackle certain criminal activities because of the fear of being labelled Islamophobic.”[56] He claimed that Woodhill prison had become “an ISIS training camp”, and that radicals were “running the wings”.[57] After finishing the licence at the end of his conviction, Robinson returned to anti-Islam demonstrations with Pegida, a German organisation founded in Dresden amid the European migrant crisis. Addressing a Pegida anti-Islam rally in October 2015, Robinson spoke out against what he perceived to be the threat of Islamist terrorists posing as refugees.[58] He announced the creation of a British chapter of Pegida in December 2015. He affirmed that alcohol and fighting would not be permitted because “It’s too serious now for that stuff”, and told The Daily Telegraph that a mass demonstration would take place across Europe on 6 February 2016.[7] On 14 February 2016, Robinson was attacked and hospitalised after leaving a nightclub in Essex.[59] Robinson travelled to watch UEFA Euro 2016 in France and demonstrated with a T-shirt and English flag ridiculing the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Bedfordshire Police gave him a football banning order on his return; his lawyer Alison Gurden accused the police of a “campaign of harassment” and said that they had equated the proscribed terrorist group with all Muslims in their action.[60] In September, a judge at Luton Magistrates’ Court dismissed the case, calling the prosecution’s evidence “vague” and “cagey”.[61] On 27 August 2016, eighteen Luton Town football supporters, including Robinson and his family, were ejected from a Cambridge pub on the day of the Cambridge United versus Luton football match by police. Robinson claimed he had been victimised, and complaints were submitted to Cambridge Police.[62] Robinson became a correspondent for The Rebel Media, a Canadian political and social commentary website, in February 2017.[63][non-primary source needed] In May 2017, he was arrested for contempt of court after he attempted to take video of the defendants in a child rape case outside Canterbury Crown Court.[64][65] Robinson responded on Twitter to the 2017 Finsbury Park attack writing, “The mosque where the attack happened tonight has a long history of creating terrorists & radical jihadists & promoting hate & segregation,” and, “I’m not justifying it, I’ve said many times if government or police don’t sort these centres of hate they will create monsters as seen tonight.” Robinson’s statements were widely criticised in the media as inciting hatred.[66] Appearing the next morning on Good Morning Britain, Robinson held up the Quran and described it as a “violent and cursed book”. The host, Piers Morgan, accused him of “stirring up hatred like a bigoted lunatic”, and Robinson’s appearance drew a number of complaints to Ofcom.[67] Robinson was involved in a fight at Royal Ascot later in June 2017, for which Morgan criticised him on Twitter.[68] In May 2017, Robinson was convicted of contempt of court for using a camera inside Canterbury Crown Court and received a suspended sentence.[69] According to Judge Heather Norton, “this is not about free speech, not about the freedom of the press, nor about legitimate journalism, and not about political correctness. It is about justice and ensuring that a trial can be carried out justly and fairly, it’s about being innocent until proven guilty. It is about preserving the integrity of the jury to continue without people being intimidated or being affected by irresponsible and inaccurate ‘reporting’, if that’s what it was”.[70] On 25 May 2018, Robinson was arrested for a breach of the peace while live streaming outside Leeds Crown Court[70][71] during a trial on which reporting restrictions had been ordered by the judge.[72] Following Robinson’s arrest, Judge Geoffrey Marson QC[73] issued a further reporting restriction on Robinson’s case, prohibiting any reporting of Robinson’s case or the grooming trial until the latter case is complete.[74][71][75] The jailing of Robinson drew condemnation from right wing circles.[76] The UK Independence Party leader Gerard Batten MEP expressed concern about the proceedings and the ban on reporting.[77] Robinson attracted sympathy from several right-wing politicians in Europe including the Dutch Party for Freedom leader Geert Wilders[71] and the German Bundestag member Petr Bystron.[78] During the weekend following Robinson’s arrest, hundreds of his supporters rallied outside Downing Street, calling for the government to “Free Tommy”[71][79] and an online petition for his release had more than 500,000 signatures.[80] On 29 May, the reporting restriction was lifted with regard to Robinson, following a challenge by journalists, and the media reported that Robinson had admitted contempt of court by publishing information that could prejudice an ongoing trial, and had been sentenced to 13 months’ imprisonment.[8] Marson sentenced Robinson to ten months for contempt of court and his previous three months’ suspended sentence was activated because of the breach. Robinson’s lawyer said that Robinson felt “deep regret” after comprehending the potential consequences of his behaviour.[81] Robinson was told that if a retrial had to be held as a result of his actions the cost could be “hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pounds”.[81][82] Robinson has written or co-written two books:

The good news is, well have more time to put together a powerful legal argument in defence of Tommys free speech and freedom of the press. In the meantime, the judge has placed a publication ban on us, which we must respect so we cannot get into the details. Thank you for your support because of you, we were able to get Tommy back home to his wife and kids. And hell be back on the streets doing great, independent journalism tomorrow. Were not out of the woods yet on legal fees, though. If you are able to help us fund our court appearance on May 22nd, please help out, whether its a dollar, a pound or a Euro, we need to get Tommy the best defence we can. On May 10, 2017, just after 4 a.m., the Bedfordshire Police went to Tommy Robinsons house, banged on his door, woke up his entirefamily,arrested Tommy, and took him to jail. CLICK HERE TO HELP FUND TOMMY’S LEGAL DEFENCE What did he do to deserve such a shocking visit? Why did the police have to come to his home in the dead of night upsetting hiswife and scaring his children? Ill tell you what he did, because I was there with him.Two days ago, Tommy Robinson and I went to the Canterbury Crown Court,to report on the trial of an alleged Muslim rape gang. Thats it. Thats all we did.Thats why Tommy was arrested. See, Tommy and I both work full-time for TheRebel.Media. And unlike the mainstream media that prefers to cover up horrific crimeslike that, we report them. These four Muslim men are on trial for allegedly gang-raping a 16-year-old girl who wandered into their kebabshop asking for directions. Tommy and I went to court to cover the story and to ask the accused men some questions. Thats what real journalists are supposedto do. Incredibly, when court officers saw Tommy, theyactively worked with the accused men to sneak them out of the courtthrough another door, so we couldnt film them! Just whose side are the police on? Well, we found out at 4 a.m. this morning, didnt we? The police claim that Tommy was in “contempt of court” for filming his report outside the courthouse for livestreaming some quick comments from his cell phone while standing on the court house steps. But thats where journalistsreport on court cases all the time. Tommy didnt do anything unusual. He didnt film anyone other than himself. And when a court official asked him to move, he did. We did our work, and then we left. If Tommy had done anything wrong, why didnt the police say something, right then and there? Why would Bedfordshire police, nearly two hours drive away from Canterbury, be involved at all? Why did they raid his home at 4 a.m.? And whydid they only arrest Tommy and not me and our cameraman, who were there with him? Is it because Jon Boutcher, Bedfordshires Chief Constable, seesTommys journalism as a threat, and wants to intimidate him? This has happened to Tommy before time and time again.

Identity Europa: Another Successful Mission | Logical Meme

Chalk this up as a very successful Identity Europa mission: A memorial created by a white supremacist group to honor an Australian woman killed by a Somali officer last summer has been removed by Minneapolis police In July, Justine Ruszczyk Damond, 40, was shot and killed by Officer Mohamed Noor after she called to report a possible sexual assault. Noors partner, Matthew Harrity, was reportedly startled by a loud noise near their squad car. Damond died at the scene. No charges have been filed Identity Evropa, a white nationalist group founded in Northern California, said on its Twitter account it put up the memorial Friday. The group posted pictures of the memorial with a caption reading: One family will be having an incomplete Christmas this year. On Friday, Identity Evropa activists created a shrine for Justine Damond at the 5th Precinct in Minneapolis, MN, where her Somali-born killer whom a judge recently decided not to charge was assigned. What other sort of awful racist, hateful imagery was at IEs memorial? The memorial to Damond consisted of a framed portrait, candles, roses and signs reading, United We Stand. The Star Tribune reported that only the extinguished candles remained on Saturday night. Getting Jacob Frey, Minneapolis mayor-elect, to mention Identity Europa (or Identity Evropa) by name in a press release is, by my accounting, a success. I condemn the perpetrators and their tactics in the strongest possible terms, Frey said in a statement. Identity Evropa and those who share their values have no place in our city. Hate has no place in Minneapolis. Period. Of the cold feet The Cathedral has towards prosecuting Noor: Hennepin County Attorney Michael O. Freeman has yet to decide whether to file criminal charges against Noor. Freeman expressed frustration during a union holiday reception earlier this month, telling activists he did not have enough evidence to charge Noor and said investigators havent done their job. He also suggested that Noors refusal to speak to investigators had put prosecutors in a difficult position. I have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, (that) the moment he shot the gun, he feared for his life. And he used force because he thought he was gonna be killed, Freeman said. But I cant. He wont answer my questions because he doesnt have to, OK? Freeman later apologized to investigators and said his comments had been ill-advised.

Fash the Campus: Identity Europa, Millenial Recruitment …

What was the purpose of having an Alt Right Safe Space, other than to mock the idea that people need safe spaces sometimes? When the idea was announced only a few days ago it seemed like an insulting media stunt, and it was, but it was also a strategic point for the growing Alt Right and its attempts to market racism and bigotry to Millenials. Richard Spencer of the Radix Journal and the National Policy Institute put together a video and a plan, to promote an outdoor meeting at the historic Sproul Plaza on the University of California and Berkeley campus. This was a place where 60s radicals joined together to confront the Vietnam War, and to build the Berkeley Free Speech movement. The point they were trying to make is that Berkeley is no longer a bastion of free speech because of the Political Correctness that has run rampant. Though this seems like the embarrassing overreach of angry children who are stomping their feet about no longer being able to say the N-word in public, what they are tapping into is a feeling in much of middle America of not understanding the new developments that have come in confronting interpersonal oppression. The event was put together and manned primarily by Richard Spencer along with Nathan Damigo and Johnny Monoxide. Damigo is running the organization Identity Europa, whose name seems intended to conjure up the French organization Generation Identity that the American Alt Right often fawns over. That organization is built as a more radical alternative to the fascist Front National political party run by Marine Le Pen, which they think is too reformist and populist. Generation Identity has been pushing the Identitarian identification, which brings them somewhat in line with the fascist philosophy of the Nouvelle Droite movement and people like Alain de Benoit and Guillaume Faye. Identity Europa began as the National Youth Front, but after a Christian group of the same name threatened to sue, Damigo changed it. That organization went into disarray when Nathans co-founder,Angelo John Gage, left the organization in October. When it was still the National Youth Front it had a back and forth relationship with the fascist and populist American Freedom Party, where they automatically registered NYF members with the AFP when they turned 35. NYF hit more hurdles when their fundraising efforts were canceled by both GoFundMe and IndieGoGo for violating the terms of service, which comes from the fact that you can only strategically phrase things so much before the open racism becomes obvious. The only real press that the NYF got on campuses was for trying to target professors atArizona State University and Boston University for being anti-white. Nathan is an example of the kind of middle ground that the Alt Right has always been on. Good looking, well spoken, dresses and combs his hair like a hip Banana Republic model; he is a good advertisement as he looks far from a Klansman (looks a lot like Richard, to be exact). He is an Iraq war veteran, but he is also a felon for a hate crime. Several years ago, after he returned from Iraq, he brutally attacked a Muslim man on the street, and robbed him. He went to prison for this, and, to be fair, is generally publicly apologetic for his behavior, but it actually reveals a driving set of perspectives that lie under his fashy hair. He has hoped that by being open about his conviction he would be spared of ridicule, but it is actually just provides more background about who he is and what has inspired his organizing program. Though Identity Europa seems to be little more than his brainchild and attempt to coordinate with young people, they seem to attempt to be largely the same project that Youth for Western Civilization, the Traditionalist Youth Network/Workers Party, and the various White Student Unions are. They wish to make whiteness an identity battle, and present white advocacy as the same as Black and Latino rights organizations, including reaching out to communities of color to find allies of color who think that whites are being discriminated against on college campuses. Johnny Monoxide is another level of racism piled on, which may be a testament to the way that the Alt Right has been mainstreamed by gutter podcasts like the Daily Shoah. In fact, Richard Spencer had moved on from even using the term Alt Right and was simply referring to himself as an Identitarian in the French model, but after places like The Right Stuff started popularizing the phrase he returned to it. Monoxide is best known for hosting the short-lived podcast on the Right Stuff/Daily Shoah podcast network, The Current Year Tonight. This is a joke from the Daily Shoah lexicon referring to how liberals will respond to racism on social media by saying something like racism, its 2016, so now they will just respond by saying its the current year. Monoxide matches the angry racialism of Mike Enoch and Seventh Son, yet, unlike them, he shows his face in videos quite often. In a recent set of videos at the Burlingame, California Donald Trump appearance, he made a series of videos where he mocked protesters, using racial slurs and calling the Jew the Jew. He was interviewed and filmed heavily by Infowars, the conspiracy website that has taken a hard right turn and now spends most of their time mocking women and leftists. The entire event was live streamed by Red Ice Radio, the white nationalist podcast network that has become one of the largest in their movement. From a semi-professional studio built in their living room, married team Lana and Henrik provided stunted commentary as Johnny Monoxide live streamed from what appeared to be his phone and was able to hear them in an earpiece. Monoxide doesnt seem too worried about being found out in the world for his behavior because he is a union electrician in the Bay Area. This doesnt stop consequences from a counter-movement, but he is right that unions vessels of protecting their membership. The event went as many expected it to go, including the organizers. Generally it was Spencer, Monoxide, and Damigo, and a couple of simple student protesters holding broad Alt Right sloganed signs as people came up and tried to argue with them. It was often an attempt to slip the group up on some kind of rhetoric, and a few Trump supporters, including students of color, came through to defend the group of racists. At one point, a loud man came through who obviously knew this was in progress and what it was. He identified Spencer as a suit and tie Nazi and called out Monoxide for being a union electrician. Spencer yelled back for the man to stop whitesplaining to the mostly non-white crowd, a move that he will likely be bringing up in speeches and podcasts for months with a self-congratulating smile. While there were dozens of people that came through the square, none of them were necessarily set to argue the point because, as with most people, they were not trained to argue with a fascist whose entire purpose there is to bait you into an argument. Jack Donovan, a white nationalist allied male tribalist who rolls in these Alt Right circles, has a new book out calling Becoming a Barbarian. It is generally masculanist nonsense, yet one section has something that we thought was interesting to folks looking to confront fascism. Arguments, he says, are only between friends. There is no point in arguing with enemies since you have no stake in changing their mind. Let them have their ideas, and save disagreements between people that you really do want to find unity with. We will never find political or social unity with Damigo and Spencer, and the arguments themselves end up being relatively politically useless. They want to get you to engage with them so they can hopefully have a chance to pontificate more rhetoric and then use very well planned verbal prose to try and sow doubt. Most people have not sat there and trained themselves to make arguments about race and IQ, to know the latest archeological evidence about pre-colonial Africa, to understand the nuance in race and crime statistics. Spencer knows this, and so he can use the very small amount of evidence he has to support his wild ideas and most people are not ready to combat it. In this case, he knows that getting people into the argument is a win. Most of the people in the square that day were strong voices that advocated for inclusivity and diversity. A conversation still should be had about what anti-fascists call the no platform approach, and why we should leave our arguments between comrades and those who are not open racists. While those people argued with them, Lana and Henrik mocked them on air, using racial language and laughing at each impassioned plea against racism. Spencer and Damigo intended to use the Berkeley Alt Right Safe Space experiment to see if they were going to do this on other college campuses. Given the way that they discussed, promoted, and reflected on it, they likely will do this again. This is not the last time that they will show up on campus, but a college anti-fascist movement can be equipped to handle their push when it returns. Like Loading… Related

Alan Dershowitz, A Schmuck – Wonkette

There are perks to being the only Harvard professor willing to shill for the Bush League Mussolini. Everyone else has to haul ass to the Fox studio and sit for hair and makeup. Not Alan Dershowitz! He just parks his laptop in Pee Wee’s playhouse and Skypes in that rant. Is he even wearing pants? We hope never to find out! More to the point, what the hell is he even saying here? O RLY? Alan Dershowitz is joining the fight against pre-trial detention? Did the bronzed braintrust know they were inviting a Social Justice Warrior to join them on the leather couch? No wonder they made him call in from a fish bowl! Yes, it is to America’s everlasting shame that we have over half a million people locked up without any determination of guilt. Graphic via Prison Policy Initiative We set bail without regard for a defendant’s ability to pay, and we spend hundreds of millions of dollars jailing people who pose no danger at all to their communities. And if you live in Maryland Districts 11 or 23B, your chance to get rid of Delegates Bobby Zirkin and Joseph Vallario — the second- and third-highest recipients of bail bondsmen’s campaign contributions in the entire country — is coming on June 26. Why does little Maryland receive almost as much in bail bond campaign cash as California or Florida? DUNNO! We should get Dersh on that ASAP! But we digress! Because Alan Dershowitz is only invoking those unjustly incarcerated brown dudes to pretend that poor Paul Manafort has been thrown in jail based solely on the indictment. And Alan Dershowitz knows that’s total horseshit. Last week, Paul Manafort was a free man — albeit one who had turned millions of dollars in assets over to the federal courts and was sporting a set of matching ankle bracelets. Do poor brown dudes get to spend the night in their own beds when they are indicted for all the crimes? NO, THEY DO NOT. So it is stunning chutzpah for Dershowitz to pretend that poor Paul Manafort was railroaded by an unjust legal system. The guy had every advantage of race and class. All he had to do was quit criming for a hot second. And he couldn’t even do that! Paul Manafort is in jail because he was a goddamn idiot who allegedly sent WhatsApp messages coaching witnesses in his own trial, and saved the messages to his own iCloud. That’s “bless our hearts and other parts”-level stupid. And we expect this illiterate dipshit to pretend that Manafort was “sentenced.” But not a guy who taught at Harvard Law School for fifty years! Judge Berman Jackson had “probable cause to believe that [Manafort] has committed a Federal, State, or local crime while on release” — i.e. obstruction of justice and false statements to the FBI — and that’s why he’s going to jail. Which Alan Dershowitz knows goddamn well. So he needs to close up his laptop and knock off that live webcam porn show he puts on in his attic for the drooling morons at Fox. Seriously, Zaydie! This is a shandah, and it’s fucking beneath you! Follow your FDF on Twitter! You liking these lawsplainers? Please click here to fund ’em!

Ancient Sparta: The First Self-Conscious Ethnostate? Part 2: Commitment to Collectivism

Go to Part 1. There is a sense in which all life for Spartan citizens was communal and hierarchical. Even once one had completed the agoge, Spartiates would eat together in common mess halls, again creating common feeling. The ages were mixed, so that the older could teach the young, and citizens were expected to […]

Ancient Sparta: The First Self-Conscious Ethnostate? Part 3: The Virtuous Circle of Spartan Power

Go to Part 1. Go to Part 2.

Ann Coulter: “Meanwhile, 10 miles from the White House…”

I thought I would start writing blog posts with excerpts from articles I find interesting, sometimes with brief comments. “Meanwhile, 10 miles from the White House…” Now that Trump has solved Northeast Asia’s problems, maybe he can get to a problem in our country — in fact, within 10 miles of the White House. For […]

Populist-Socialism: The Economy of the White Ethno-State

Abstract Little consideration is given to the economic foundations of a White ethno-state. While many in the Alt-Right know conceptually what an ethno-state should be like in the abstract sense of demographics, the minutia of public and economic policy to obtain or maintain such a state is lost. While not exhaustive, the following paper is […]
