FIRST ON FOX: It now appears that a vicious brawl at a south suburban restaurant on Saturday involved hammer-wielding "anti-fascists" attacking a group of self-professed "white nationalists."
The attack occurred at 12:45 p.m. Saturday, according to Tinley Park police. Ten were injured, with three taken to local hospitals. Among innocent bystanders terrified by the bizarre explosion of violence were several dozen women there for a wedding shower.
Sources tell Fox Chicago News that at least one of the white nationalists was a fugitive wanted on as many as seven different warrants.
After the attack, several injured white supremacists fled immediately, declining medical treatment. Tinley Park Police said they detained five of the suspected attackers, who apparently call themselves members of the "South Side Chicago Anti-Racist Action." Police and Cook County prosecutors said criminal charges could be filed Sunday.
The white supremacists had apparently posted on one or more of their websites that they planned to have lunch at the Ashford House restaurant, 7959 W. 159th St, Tinley Park. Their internet postings refer to a "5th Annual White Nationalist Economic Summit." Not clear is whether they chose this weekend and this suburban Chicago location as some sort of response to the NATO Summit in Chicago.

In this case the hoodie-uniformed leftist storm troopers hammered out a decisive win over their skinhead targets.
But as Larry Auster warns at his website, what if this isn't a one-off incident, and instead is the beginning of something new in leftwing activism?
This time they chose a target few will have sympathy with. But the left has a lot of people that they hate and the next time it could be a far more conventional group. A jihad against all who oppose them.
“This is like something out of interwar Germany. A Weimar flash-mob. “
This is a set-up. We should be asking what behind-the-scenes group orchestrated this. Or what government agency.
I guess any victim of gang violence will be accused of being white supremecists these days
So.. When will these leftist maggots go and attack members of the black panthers, and la raza members?
One article I read said after the mob beat up the other group they hit other people at random
When in modern history haven't leftists resorted to violence as a political tool?
“So.. When will these leftist maggots go and attack members of the black panthers, and la raza members?”
They won’t, since they see them as fellow travelers.
Watch out TEA Party.
Nice. This is also how the anarchists, A.K.A. 'Los Pistoleros' in Spain got the ball rolling for the Spanish Civil War in '38. And of course that was the bloody dress rehearsal for WW Deuce. Way to go Chi-town!!!
Reads as if the anti-fascists are suffering from Freudian projectionism. In simpler terms, they be the fascists.
“This is a set-up. We should be asking what behind-the-scenes group orchestrated this. Or what government agency.”
$10 says the criminal White Hut and corrupt Dept of INJustice sanctioned/will also ignore it.
This whole Chicago circus seems like a setup to me. False flags everywhere.
Well it did happen in Chicago...
Hmmm, interesting choice of weapons...baseball bats, hammers, and nunchucks.
I vote for “hammer” as the best weapon in this instance...especially a ball peen hammer...or even better, a lead dead-blow hammer.
Has anybody else noticed that only white people attend Anti Fascist rallies?
Seems to me that black people just don’t give a crap.
If they keep on doing this sort of stuff and rightist groups begin to respond in kind, the lefties will find themselves outgunned--after all, for the most part, lefties don't hunt, go to gun shows, collect firearms or join the military.
Incidentally, when the Spanish Right finally responded to violent leftist provocations such as assassinations and church burnings, the leftists found themselves outgunned, and they lost the war.
Nah. They ain’t smart enough.
There were over a dozen attackers and five were arrested.
Seems to me that names and photos of the arrestees should be released to help identify the ones who got away.
I’m thinking that they need to try this down in Greensboro, NC, and see how it turns out.
If they were smarter, they would have held it north of Chicago, and not made it plain that it was just north of the CCW-friendly WI border. Given any party crashers a big surprise.
That said, these "anti-fascist" types hate FReepers and TEA party members more than they hate Stormfronters (because we are actually having success rolling back the Left). This may be a foreshadow of things to come as we get closer to November. Stay safe. Avoid gatherings where you cannot be armed.
A good way to minimize the chance of disruptions like this is for each patriotic organization to give each member a password to the part of its website that gives the time, date and location of each of its meetings. Also each member might find a physical problem that required him to carry a heavy cane.

Yep, why would they host the NATO conference in a place where you KNOW that there’s going to be protests? The propaganda isn’t working as well as it used to, so expect something more radical in the future.
Only if you if you ignore the Left's control of language. The tactics used by the "anti-fascists" were by any sensible definition fascistic tactics, but since WWII, the Left has convinced the public that racism = fascism. Of course, this is because one particular branch of fascism, German fascism, included racism. Italian fascism wasn't racist. Stalinist fascism wasn't considered racist. But that doesn't matter. Fascism has come to mean any opponent of the Left.
Interesting turn of events, too bad the reporter is an idiot. I’ll bet both groups are left-wing radical fasicsts.
The left in Germany hd many battles against each other to sort out which group would gain and hold power.
We are seeing the early stages of this in America, actually we saw this forst in the Texas Cacuses in 2008 between Obama and Hillery forces when Obamas people would not let Hilleery’s people vote.
But since they're white and the assailants were ... not ... it's okay. Let's see how it's reported when -- not IF -- the retaliation occurs.
Watch yo’ mouth, Boy!
“But since they’re white and the assailants were ... not ... it’s okay.”
Actually the report is that everyone involved is white, attackers and victims alike.
When clearly outnumbered.
To think for years the propaganda being fed to us is these neo-Nazis/skinheads/fascists were the ones who are violent.
“The Stormfronters made a big mistake having their gathering in non-CCW Illinois southwest of Chicago, and putting it up on their website. What were they thinking?”
Let’s stop and think a minute here. A bunch of anti-facist, multi-pierced, metrosexuals have attacked a bunch of neo-nazi skinheads? These weren’t your usual hand-wringing, hippie types now were they? This thing was bought and paid for street theater.
Yeah, I caught that further down in the article. Not sure what the beef here was then. I don’t buy this “anti-fascist” crap. There’s more here than meets the eye.
I suspect too many 'black mob on white' stories have been leaking out despite the media's attempts to cover them up. So someone decided that there needed to be an all white mob style attack, preferably involving skinheads, for 'balance.'
I hate Illinois nazis..
Stormfront is not a patriotic organization. It’s hard to pick the bad guys out of this article.
“in the Texas Cacuses in 2008 between Obama and Hillery forces when Obamas people would not let Hilleerys people vote.”
I don’t remember reading about that. How did they prevent them from voting?
Strange, but not as big a concern as the one sided race war that is going on.
I don't see a big difference with the confuse anarchist of the skinheads and the confused anarchist of the OWS. For all we know, some of the attackers may be skinheads.
I will loosely follow this story, just because we probably don't have all the information, yet.
I don't think it is so hard.
The ones who broke the law are the bad guys.
See how that works? How hard was that?
The group that was attacked are also leftist’s or lefties as you called them. Fascism is leftist!
Do some reserch, they [revented them from voting by not letting them enter if they said they were for Clinton. She was livid about it.
This tactic is nothing new for the anti-racist crowd vs the racist skinheads, but usually they don’t do it in so public a place. Neither side will call the cops, so if there if it hadn’t been for the people in the restaurant, this would never have made the news.
Agreed investigations need to be done this is way to efficient an attack entirely to well planned & executed to be your typical leftist action.
To precise by far, they knew where there targets were at exactly , the attackers massed precisely all in ‘uniform’ at the same time like a precise well drilled team & were talking about 20+ individuals .
If it was a leftist run operation you would have folks showing up in everything from Che T-shirts to clown suits.
Nah, it’s not a set-up. Punk rockers and non-racist skinheads always form “anti-racist” groups to fight racist skinheads in their areas. In their view, the racist skinheads, who wear the same kinds of fashion, give a bad name to the non-racist ones, so they feud with them wherever they find them. It’s been going on for over 30 years, so it’s not some new leftie tactic. They do all collaborate with the various commie/socialist/anarchist groups though.
I assume that since they’re white, this will be in my local paper in the morning. As it should be... Some journalists out there needs to come up with a standard - something along the lines of a style book rule - and cover crimes in the SAME WAY - not one way for blacks and one way for whites. But one consistent way.
They knew where they were, and who the targets were because the nazis were stupid enough to post their info on websites and social networking, not thinking that the anti-racists monitor them. Trust me, this is no new development or tactics for the anti-racists.
It looks more organized than typical leftie tactics because anti-racist groups are not run by college slacker lefties or fat union lefties, they are run by anti-racist skinheads and punk rockers who hone street fighting to an art form.
Agreed this is a set up the only question is who is in charge & planning this particular operation. It sure aint the usual lefty misfit crowd that can barely count past 10 without removing there shoes & socks.
