    OAKLAND, Calif. — Last weekend, when a 27-year-old bike messenger showed up at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., he came ready for battle. He joined a human chain that stretched in front of Emancipation Park and linked his arms with others, blocking waves of white supremacists — some of them in full Nazi regalia — from entering. “As soon as they got close,” said the young man, who declined to give his real name and goes by Frank Sabaté after the famous Spanish anarchist, “they started swinging clubs, fists, shields. I’m not embarrassed to say that we...

    First bursting into the headlines when they shut down far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos in February at the University of California at Berkeley, antifascists again captivated the public imagination by battling the fascists assembled at the “Unite the Right” white power rally in Charlottesville. But what is antifa? Where did it come from? Militant anti-fascist or “antifa” (pronounced ANtifa) is a radical pan-leftist politics of social revolution applied to fighting the far right. Its adherents are predominantly communists, socialists and anarchists who reject turning to the police or the state to halt the advance of white supremacy. Instead they advocate popular...

    Long before most people in Europe or North America were familiar with the word ‘jihad’, left-wing terrorism ravaged much of Western Europe. Groups like West Germany’s Red Army Faction/Baader-Meinhof Gang, America’s Symbionese Liberation Army, Italy’s Red Brigades, Spain’s First of October Anti-Fascist Resistance Groups, Portugal’s FP-25, Action Directe in France and the IRA in Britain were left wing terrorist groups who committed numerous atrocities including targeted killings, bombings, kidnappings and torture on a wide scale. At a time when most people correctly thought of Mosques as places of peace and holiness, these far-left groups put fear into the hearts of...

    The Democratic National Committee is jumping into the ongoing waves of protests that have followed Saturday’s events in Charlottesville, launching a #RiseAndOrganize campaign to direct activists toward electoral politics. “In addition to calling on Republicans to denounce Trump, the next step is getting people to commit to vote,” explained DNC chief executive Jess O’Connell. “This is a galvanizing moment.” The DNC has spent weeks on a “Resistance Summer” campaign, one of several simultaneous national efforts to galvanize protesters and get them working on achievable political wins. The #RiseAndOrganize campaign, explained O’Connell, would involve Democrats finding the best opportunities to grill...

    President Trump’s planned infrastructure announcement unraveled into chaos as he all but erased any credit he got on Monday for condemning white supremacists for the deadly confrontation in Charlottesville, Va. Trump said it was “a horrible day” but said several times that counter-protesters were not getting enough scrutiny for their role in the confrontation and emphasized his belief that many of the protesters who joined with white nationalists were innocent. “What about the 'alt-left' that came charging at, as you say, the 'alt-right'? Do they have any semblance of guilt?” Trump said. “They came charging with clubs in their hands,”...

    It turns out last weekend’s violent white-power protest in Virginia was spurred in part by an ex-con and one-time Silicon Valley resident who’s about to bring his bare-knuckled activism back to the Bay Area. Nathan Damigo is not a techie. But the former Marine infantryman and convicted armed robber who founded the Oakdale-based white-nationalist group Identity Evropa grew up and went to school in San Jose before following a path into alt-right power politics. Damigo, who made the news after he was arrested for punching a woman in the face during the so-called “Battle for Berkeley” on April 15, now...

    The Washington Post - under the fig leaf of "analysis" - rationalizes and justifies mob violence today, saying "Charlottesville showed that liberalism can’t defeat white supremacy. Only direct action can." A helluva dog whistle kicker: Segregationists have again assumed their pedestals in the Justice Department, the White House and many other American temples. Paper alone won’t drive them out. Start throwing rocks. The best part is you can fulfill all your Antifa needs - baseball bats, Antifa masks, helmets and camouflage gear — by ordering them through Amazon! It's a win-win for Bezos!

    With violence sparked by neo-Nazis in Virginia raising tensions across the U.S., white nationalists are planning rallies in San Francisco and Berkeley later this month. A permit has been issued for a “Patriot Prayer” group to gather Aug. 26 at Crissy Field in San Francisco, said Sonja Hanson, spokeswoman for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin said another group, No Marxism in America, is planning an event on Aug. 27 at Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park in Berkeley. The park was the site of two other gatherings of far-right protesters this year, including one...

    BBC ^ | August 14, 2017 | By Brenna Cammeron
    President Donald Trump drew widespread criticism on Saturday when he said that there was violence on "many sides" in Charlottesville and initially neglected to explicitly censure the white supremacists who organised the rally. On Monday, he bowed to pressure to castigate the KKK, white supremacists and neo-nazis. But many conservatives say blame should be shared by Antifa, a loosely affiliated group of far-left protesters. Critics argue the media tends to excuse violence by Antifa militants just because they are fighting white supremacists and their odious ideology. The social causes of Antifa (short for anti-fascist or Anti-Fascist action) are easily identifiable...

    FOX News reporter Doug McKelway attended the violent protests Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.   McKelway told FOX News viewers the police pulled out of Lee Park after the violence started. The police told him, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.” This was after violent Antifa terrorists launched an attack on the white supremacists. Doug McKelway: We are now beginning to hear criticism bubble up on all sides of this event about the initial slow response by the police. When I got out of my car yesterday in Charlottesville about 10:30 in the morning you knew this was a bad scene and...

    Perhaps Antifa should be classified as a domestic terrorist organization. They may be a bunch of basement-dwelling losers, but according to a report by The Daily Caller, an Antifa website includes information and encouragement for committing violent, illegal activities: A website called It’s Going Down, which calls itself a “platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist and autonomous anti-capitalist movements” showed up on our radar during the riot that shut down Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech at UC Berkeley in February this year. As I previously detailed in a Heat Street report, the website features a variety of materials that promote violence against supporters...

    Shortened title. Full title: During Trump’s Paris Visit Migrant Suburbs Saw 900 Cars Burned in Scenes of ‘Intolerable Urban Violence’ While U.S. President Donald Trump was on a visit to France for the national Bastille Day celebrations in Paris, clashes in the capital’s migrant-dominated suburbs saw 13 security force members wounded and 897 cars burned. The Interior Ministry said 368 people were placed in custody for riots and violence on the nights of 13 and 14 July  — scenes which have become a regular occurrence in multicultural urban neighborhoods of Paris at the start of Bastille Day celebrations each year.

    Warren Wilhelm, aka Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York City, apparently identifies more with anti-Trump/anti-capitalistic protestors than he does those who heroically die preserving the peace. To prove his true affections lie with those who embrace government-controlled wealth sharing, one day after a New York City police officer was gunned down as she ended her shift, Bill saw fit to leave town and head to a “peaceful” protest at the G-20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany. For security purposes, the mayor’s press secretary, Eric Phillips, would not provide details about how much of the mayor’s trip would be at taxpayers'...

    ACTIVISTS clashed violently with riot cops in Germany setting cars ablaze, looting shops, throwing petrol bombs and trying to gatecrash the convention centre hosting the G20 talks. Hundreds of extra police were drafted in to the streets of Hamburg in a bid to keep the increasingly violent protests by anti-globalisation rioters under control. But as these shocking images show the port’s streets were once again turned into a burning battleground. Around 200 police officers were injured, dozens of activists had to be taken to the hospital and more than 70 protesters were detained.

    Raging street battles that marred Germany’s G20 summit have sparked a political fight over how Hamburg could descend into “mob rule” and why Chancellor Angela Merkel chose a hotbed of leftist militancy as the venue. Germany’s top-selling Bild daily was withering in its condemnation of the chaos that saw far-left and anarchist radicals torch rows of cars, loot shops and hurl rocks and bottles from burning barricades at riot police. “One should use with caution the words ‘failure of the state’. Sadly, it applies in Hamburg,” the newspaper thundered Saturday, slamming the summit as a “debacle”. “Of course, the police...
