  • ‘Spontaneous’ left-wing group with scripts hates being described as ‘scripted’

    04/05/2017 6:19:32 AM PDT · by rktman · 8 replies ^ | 4/4/2017 | M.D. Kittle
    The nationally organized, local left-wing grassroots group known as Indivisible is getting pretty ticked off about being described as “scripted” — even though its members are raising their own concerns about Wisconsin Indivisible chapters working from scripts. The outrage – at least the latest outrage – follows an op/ed last week in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel by an Nicole Tieman, communications director for U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Menomonee Falls. The piece, takes aim at the notion that the so-called Indivisible “uprisings” are part of an organic movement, instead of a scripted, well organized and, it appears, well financed national “resistance...

    Berkeley replied in an e-mail to Townhall that given “recent, violent incidents in the City of Berkeley and Charlottesville, the University of California Police Department (UCPD) recently completed a revised security assessment for the September 14th event featuring Ben Shapiro.” They said this is “consistent with demands presented by the BCR to the UCPD in a recent written communication, as well as University’s event policy that applies to all student organizations and clearly states: “If UCPD determines that, because of new information it has received or changing circumstances, its security assessment must be modified, it will schedule additional meetings or...

    Anonymous has posted a listing on 8chan claiming it is an extensive list of nationwide members of the anti-free speech group ANTIFA and it includes many teachers! The list is very long and includes Facebook links as well. There are many professors, school teachers, and other education staff. Many writers, political activists and programmers as well. We did some research and cannot seem to find anywhere that states this list is not accurate. Proceed with caution. Here is the list: Many are connected to radical Communist groups, like the National Bolshevik Party (NBP) Antifa and BLM showed up at...

    Fox News ^ | 10/01/2017 | Lucia I. Suarez Sang
    Well before the deadly Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville and the ongoing violent clashes with white supremacists and other groups, federal authorities warned local officials the actions of left-wing extremists were becoming increasingly confrontational and dangerous. Federal agencies warned of the growing likelihood of lethal violence between left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacists. Some even classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.” In previously unreported documents dating back to April 2016 and viewed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and Antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies. They...

    Politico reports that the Obama Administration “formally classified” Antifa’s activities as “domestic terrorist violence” as early as April 2016. From Politico: Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.

    The Austin based Anti-fascists group, Red Guards Austin, has been gaining prominence in the Texas Antifa movement. As we have previously reported, they are a self described autonomous Marxist-Leninist-Maoist collective and their website contains multiple reports on their confrontational and often armed demonstrations. They also openly advocate for violent revolution against capitalism. “we must seriously take up the task not only of self-defense on the personal and community level, but we must also struggle to unite all genuine antifascists behind the necessity of revolution. Revolution means the long fight for communism and nothing less.” In a recent blog titled...

    feel sorry for leftists. I realize many of my readers are leftists. I have to make a distinction here, because “Democrat” and “leftist” are not synonymous terms, as the whole flap over the Rizzo statue makes obvious to people now. There’s a lot of them in Philadelphia and they pretty-much signal off each other like cattle moo-ing their way across a pasture. Few of you realize what is coming, but I already see the winds blowing. You will feel that wind turn gale force as the months go by. The people I’m feeling sorry for are you guys, gals–and other–who...

    I experienced hate firsthand today. It came from these people dressed in all black at a protest in Berkeley. Ironically they were all chanting about no hate. Some had shields and gloves. Some had helmets. Some had gas masks. I was watching them and taking it all in. I came there on my own time. Because I wanted to see things first hand. I was dressed in shorts and a tank top. I took two pictures and afterward they started screaming at me. I thought for sure they were going to attack. I was just waiting for it. I grew...

    Becoming an anti-fascist, or Antifa, is easy. It just takes three steps: Find Nazis in the street and attack them If you can’t find any Nazis nearby, just call anybody you don’t like a Nazi Bask in the glowing support of the American mainstream press That’s what we saw yesterday in Berkeley. A very small number of people who assembled peacefully were beaten and harassed in broad daylight by a huge mob of masked thugs. And it’s accepted, because… well, because we really don’t like those people. They voted for Trump. They’re “Nazis.” But what happens when the hateful mob...

    Berkeley police deliberately allowed masked “Antifa” anarchists to jump a barricade and attack a demonstration by a peaceful right-wing group on Sunday, leading to five assaults, including on Patriot Prayer group leader Joey Gibson. The counter-demonstration had reportedly been “largely peaceful” until that point. The police later defended their decision by arguing that keeping the anarchists out would have led to greater violence. There was “no need for a confrontation over a grass patch,” Berkeley police chief Andrew Greenwood said, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The original “No to Marxism” protest had been denied a permit by the...

In a commentary published Sunday in The Atlantic, Biden wrote: “Today we have an American president who has publicly proclaimed a moral equivalency between neo-Nazis and Klansmen and those who would oppose their venom and hate.” He said Trump has “emboldened white supremacists with messages of comfort and support.” …

    Activists who toppled a statue of a Confederate soldier just days after Charlottesville perhaps thought they were doing God's work ... at least until they got arrested. At that moment, it's hard to imagine that the enormity of what they'd done didn't slam into them. After all, they'd destroyed public property and been stupid enough to do so on video. But perhaps they need not worry too much. It seems that the district attorney is going to let Leftist ideology mitigate his prosecution:
