Firemen Abandon House Blaze After Being Attacked in Swedish No-Go Zone

0

by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart:

Firefighters in the southern Swedish city of Malmö were forced to let a building burn to the ground after they were violently attacked by locals who threw glass bottles at them.

The fire, which occurred in the city’s suburb of Kroksback, initially started after two cars in a car park were set on fire Thursday at around 9 pm. Police and fire crews were called and arrived on the scene shortly after, whilst another fire started at a nearby building on Sörbäcksgatan street, police said in a press release.

As the firemen tried to put out the second blaze, glass bottles were thrown at them and at their vehicles. The attack forced the firemen to abandon the blaze which engulfed the building and burned it to the ground.

Police who arrived on the scene were also attacked with glass bottles though the police report does not specify what damage was done to their vehicles or any injuries sustained by the emergency personnel.

Authorities also added that they do not know if there is any connection between the two fires, though both are suspected to be arson.

Attacks on emergency services personnel in Sweden are far from rare in certain areas that have become known globally as “no-go zones”. In some of the more notorious heavily migrant-populated suburbs like Husby, Tensta, and Rinkeby in Stockholm, police, firemen and ambulance workers have been attacked on multiple occasions.

The situation has become so bad in some areas that ambulance unions have asked for bullet proof vests to be given to paramedics working in problem areas.

Some of the violence against emergency workers has even been caught on camera. Dramatic footage originally broadcast in 2015 showed police being attacked in several no-go areas and being told by locals, “you are not in charge here”.

UC Berkeley offers counseling to those ‘threatened’ by conservatives

0

Jamie White | Infowars.com :

In preparation for Ben Shapiro’s speech this month, the University of Berkeley in California is offering counseling for any student who feels threatened by the conservative speaker’s views.

“We are deeply concerned about the impact some speakers may have on individuals’ sense of safety and belonging,” Executive Vice Chancellor Paul Alivisatos said in a campus email.

“No one should be made to feel threatened or harassed simply because of who they are and what they believe.”

That is, unless you’re a Trump supporter, or anybody who doesn’t hold a liberal viewpoint.

Considering Shapiro’s perfectly reasonable and academic conservative views on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, Berkeley’s announcement seems dramatic.

After all, the violence was first perpetuated by Antifa and other leftists when right-wing speaker Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak in February.

A group of right-wing activists who showed up to the Berkeley campus last month to hold a “No to Marxism” protest ended up getting viciously beaten by Antifa, with very little interference by the Berkeley police.

“They came with black masks, they carried weapons, they were pounding people down with their fists and their feet,” Berkeley College Republican Ashton Whitty said in a Fox interview.

“I was willing to discuss anything,” Whitty said. “I held up a poster that said ‘let’s just have a conversation.’ I had conversations with many interesting people both Republican and Democrat.”

Wikileaks: Germany Called Antifa ‘Terrorist Organization’ in 1970

by Pamela Geller, Freedom Outpost:

The left in America may still be agonizing over the labeling of antifa as a criminal organization, but not so in Germany, where authorities called the thug outfit a “terrorist” group way back in 1970.

How come people like Nancy Pelosi are so slow to similarly recognize terror for what it is?

Wikileaks stumbled upon Germany’s label, noting that the difference between the antifa of 1970 and antifa of 2017 is — get this — the coverage received in the media.

The Department of Memes has more of the story:

While the mainstream media is still attempting to politically crucify President Trump after his brutal press conference in which he asked if the “Alt-Left” had “any semblance of guilt” for what happened in Charlottesville, citizen journalists on Reddit’s r/the_Donald have uncovered publicly available documents on Wikileaks that refer to Antifa as a “terrorist organization” acting in West Berlin.

From the Wikileaks cable:

“Status awaiting possible terrorist attacks by members of the German terrorist organization Antifa in West Berlin, allegedly to be directed against radio/TV stations and offices of newspaper agencies. Some of the Antifa members had arrived in West Berlin a few days before the weekend and had taken preparations in anticipation for these attacks.

During the weekend, the majority of the Antifa terrorists (total number maximum ten) had been under constant surveillance by LFV Berlin and West Berlin’s Political Police. The attack was believed to be directed, among others, against the AFN radio/TV station. Precautionary measures to protect radio/TV stations, offices of news agencies, and other public buildings believed to be high on the list of the terrorists had been taken during the weekend.”

It appears the key difference between the Antifa of the 1970s and the Antifa of 2017 is their relationship in the media. Decades ago they wanted to attack the media, and today the media shills for them constantly.

However, while this information already devastates the mainstream media’s narrative about the Alt-Left and Antifa being figments of the Right’s imagination, other information released by Wikileaks reveals that Antifa has been protected by the media across the globe.

In one of Wikileaks’ leaked “Global Intelligence Files,” emails and documents belonging to the global intelligence agency Stratfor, we see another example, this time from 2014, of Antifa condoning and supporting terrorism – violence in the name of political ideologies – against the Right:

The German website antifa.de published an article entitled “Block the Nazi March!”, claiming that “for years, the right-wing government and the Catholic Church have promoted a racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic atmosphere in Poland.”

Expect The Unexpected — Things Will Be Changing

0

by Richard Sauder, Event Horizon:

My mini-vision of a couple of months ago of the date, 4 September,  has proved to be prescient. It is clear now that these days in early September are a crucial watershed period for the USSA and possibly for the world, as the USSA undergoes trial by Hurricane(s) and appears to be poised on the brink of possible nuclear war with North Korea. Both Donald Trump and the USSA as a whole are under terrific stress right now — militarily, politically, economically, socially, meteorologically — at the individual and national level.

Here’s the reality: we are now to the point where there will be more and more changes, more and more problems and chaos. The world is changing and as we move deeper into the Event Horizon the pace of events will quicken, faster and faster, more and more.

Eventually the confusion may become completely overwhelming, or nearly so, and we may not even be in contact anymore.
 
As things break down, something new will emerge, perhaps with a more prosperous and peaceful, multi-polar world order as proposed by Vladimir Putin, with more of an emphasis on Asia and the Global South, but first it does look like much of the world will go through a time ofturmoil, even violent turmoil in some countries — which already exists for people in Syria, Somalia, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, and other places.

Karmically and politically that turmoil has also already begun in the USSA. It will get worse and worse, maybe a very great deal worse. It looks like there may very well be a years-long period of pronounced decline and chaos in the USSA dominated global system of governance. Indeed, the USSA itself may break up and splinter into pieces, much as the former Soviet Union did more than 25 years ago.

The trial by hurricane(s) that the USSA is now undergoing is like the pounding that a heavyweight boxer undergoes when he absorbs a withering series of powerful body blows in a 15-round slug fest. The damaging body blows have a cumulative effect that after a given point can bring even the most powerful of men crashing down to defeat. 

Have no doubt, what has just happened in Houston is a powerful body blow for the USSA system. Houston, and the surrounding area of the Gulf Coast, is a vital component of the industrial and economic might of the USSA, as a crucial petrochemical, petroleum refining and commercial shipping center, and nerve center of the global, petroleum business. 

But Houston, and the surrounding region, have been trashed due to the ravages of Hurricane Harvey and its heavy flooding aftermath. Houston may never again be the city that we have known it to be during the second half of the 20th century and the opening years of the 21st century. I used to clean windows for some wealthy clients in the oil business, who had a big, two-storey, rambling house with lots of windows in one of those upscale neighborhoods down along Buffalo Bayou on the west side of town. I imagine their big, expensive house sustained a lot of water damage and may not even be habitable at this point, assuming they will want to live there anymore.

A Texas friend writes in to say: 

Houston has been destroyed.  They may save the tall civic center buildings but the city itself is lost.  All our cities are built upon a structure:  the very poor live in the worst parts of the city, getting by through whatever means they can–selling drugs, selling labor, stealing, etc.  By the time you get to someone who can actually rent a room you are several levels above the real slums. All that housing and the small businesses that served those people are gone now.
  
Considering the condition of the ground, it will be a long time before it dries out enough to build there.  Frame structures that are flooded can’t be saved; they are infected with molds, viruses and industrial pollutants.  Developers can get properties for pennies; they will have a field day, at the expense of the former owners.
  
Got insurance?  You will have to sue to collect.

But just wait…

Hurricane Irma arrives in South Florida in the coming days and bids fair to be a repeat of Harvey, and maybe even worse. 

It looks like the southeast coastline, from South Florida all the way up to South Carolina, will be ravaged within the next week, with very extensive property damage and displacement of the coastal population.

I used to live, once upon a time, in a tiny little house beneath towering, stately, pecan trees, right along the very edge of a large salt marsh in rural, coastal Georgia. At low tide I could walk barefoot for miles in the tidal flats, through an endless labyrinth of tidal creeks running through a seemingly never-ending expanse of marsh grass that extended nearly to the horizon, with the mud squishing through my toes, watching the marsh hens in their deliberate stalking of their prey, and setting a crab trap or two, which might even have caught the occasional fish along with a few crabs. All of that is likely to be overwhelmed by a furious 20 foot storm surge in three or four days from now. That tranquil little house under the ancient pecan trees down by the sea, will probably be destroyed and those huge, old pecan trees may be uprooted and washed away, as well.

And not only those trees and that little house, but also much of the little town where those trees and that little house stand. It is, all of it, barely 5 feet above sea level, if that, and the projected storm surge is as much as 20 feet and maybe even more. 

Beyond that, there is the USSA Naval Submarine Base at Kings Bay, Georgia, the USSA Navy Aircraft Carrier Base at Mayport, Florida and the Cape Canaveral Space Port at Cocoa Beach, Florida. All of these facilities are immediately on the coast, mere feet above sea level, and highly vulnerable to the high winds and high storm surge that Irma is imminently going to inflict on that region.

Then there are the miles of high rise condominiums and hotels, banks and other skyscrapers in Miami, that are built right along the beach, right down along the seashore. What happens when those twenty and thirty and forty story buildings take 10 or 15 feet of storm surge, and 150 mph winds? 

We’ll soon find out.

But that’s not all.

The USSA Deep State Is Gearing Up To Attack North Korea

The war drums against North Korea are beating louder and louder, week after week. While I realize perfectly well that many people say that the prospect of a shooting nuclear war is too insane to contemplate, that such a ghastly eventuality could never occur, that cooler heads will prevail, that not even the War Hawks in the Pentagon could actually be so demented as to wage such a destructive, genocidal war, the hard reality is that over the last 70 years, the military-industrial-intelligence complex of the USSA has made extensive, multi-trillion dollar preparations to fight and *win* just such a nuclear conflict. 

That is the harsh truth of the matter. Whether or not you think that is a good idea, whether or not you approve of such a plan and preparations — none of that matters to them. Their priorities are not necessarily your priorities. For you, nuclear mushroom clouds are probably a really, really bad thing; for them, nuclear mushroom clouds are but a means to an end — domination of the planet by them on their terms They intend to engineer the enormous death and destruction in a manner that results in their political, military, economic and social control of the entire planet, or so they think.

Accordingly, in recent days, Donald Trump has proposed cutting off trade with all countries that engage in trade with North Korea, including China. Now, China and the USSA have bilateral trade that runs to $600 billion or more per year, so a cut-off of trade with China would be a crippling blow for the Chinese economy and also the economy of the USSA. In fact, a policy that stupid would end up harming China and the USSA far more than North Korea. Even worse, it might lead to a shooting war between the USSA and China.

Not surprisingly, the Chinese can see that geopolitical events in northeast Asia are rapidly spiraling in an ugly direction and have just staged adefensive military drill in the region near North Korea. The Chinese understand that the USSA has a more than century-long history of repeated, highly destructive military interventions and wars in Asia — in the Philippines, against Japan, in Korea, in Indo-China — and are overtly signalling that if they are threatened, that they will militarily defend Chinese territory and interests.

EUROPE FACING DECADES-LONG “BLOODY FIGHT” WITH JIHADISTS, WARNS NIGEL FARAGE

0

by Dan Lyman, Infowars:

Civil war in Europe now inevitable due to Islamic invasion

British statesman Nigel Farage has conceded that Europeans have crossed a tipping point and are now facing a battle against jihadists that could go on for decades, despite countless forewarnings about border security and immigration trends issued by nationalists like him.

In an interview with Westmonster, Farage was asked how he feels about the unfolding crisis of Islamic terrorism in the UK and Europe, knowing that he has attempted for many years to avert the looming catastrophe while being constantly defamed and slandered by the global elite, EU internationalists, and mainstream media alike.

“No one said sorry, not one – the legions who lined up to say that I was racist, neo-fascist – no one has apologized.” Farage said. “Surely, decent people would admit they were wrong.”

“To be honest, even my most pessimistic view of what was going to happen here has been far exceeded by truth and reality.”

“I think we are in a very bad place. I think we are in for decades of a very difficult and literally bloody fight, and I believe we have brought it all upon ourselves,” he assessed.

The EU’s head of counter-terrorism, Gilles de Kerchove, revealed in a recent interview with El Mundo that there are more than 50,000 known Islamic radicals currently in Europe, 20,000 – 25,000 of whom are in the United Kingdom.

“I would not venture to a specific figure, but tens of thousands, more than 50,000,” Kerchove stated when asked to estimate the number of jihadists in Europe.

According to El Mundo, Kerchove believes that Islamic slaughter in Europe is “a generational question that will accompany us for decades,” and that “we will suffer more attacks… it seems clear that something like Barcelona will happen again,” which serve as confirmations of Farage’s assertions.

Additionally, Kerchove admits that European governments and intelligence agencies have been overwhelmed and are incapable of tracking all threats since the migrant crisis exploded, saying, “Three years ago it was easy to identify someone radicalized. Now, most fanatics disguise their convictions.”

Neil Basu, counter-terrorism chief for the London Metropolitan Police, disclosed that security services are currently probing over 600 possible terrorist plots – more than 60 of which have been opened in the past six weeks, and that more investigations are being launched than are being closed.

“It is not going to change. This was truly a summer like no other, it was truly a shift and not a spike, it is truly a new norm that we face,” Basu told a conference of police superintendents, blaming “porous” borders and ports, and “a lack of biometrics and advanced passenger information” for new arrivals.

At least 35 attempted or successful terrorist attacks have been carried out across Europe so far in 2017, as demonstrated on a map compiled by Breitbart London’s editor-in-chief, Raheem Kassam, who writes, “The continent has seen 72 deaths and over 430 injuries this year as a result. Only one of those deaths, and 10 of the injuries, were not migration-related or Islamic in nature.”

In 2015, Infowars reported on an Islamic State handbook that detailed the group’s plans to send their fighters and loyalists into Europe, disguised within the waves of migrants and ‘refugees’ pouring onto the continent.

Message for Progressive Left: ‘If You Want to See Real Nazis, Come to Ukraine’

from 21st Century Wire:

Ever since last month, the US media and the left wing politicians have been up in arm about alleged “rise of Nazism in America.” By now, the coverage has been incessant and beyond hysterical, as pundits and ‘antifascist’ activists claim that a viable white supremacistmovement is threatening to take over the country – which is a media-driven alternative reality. 

What the America’s liberal mainstream media establishment will not mention is the US government’s own role, particularly that of the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton’s State Department (and funded by her campaign financier George Soros) in helping to fuel the scourge of Nazism in eastern Europe, in the Ukraine.

Likewise, Republicans and so-called ‘conservatives’ will not want to mention party luminary Senator John McCain’s own personal role in promoting Ukraine’s Far Right parties and helping shoe-horn them into power in 2014 after a successful US-backed coup d’etat and putsch, and the disastrous junta which has followed.

The following open letter was posted by Aleksandr Gontar from Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, skillfully articulates the current farce in the United States and the feigned righteous indignation from the progressive left over the recent staged political altercation in Charlottesville, Virginia…

I always considered myself as a person with left-wing views, but looking at what is happening in the US I can’t escape the thought that the American left, in its majority, is the dumbest and most useless “comrade” on the planet. As a minimum, to profess liberal views and at the same time to call oneself “leftist” is a bit silly.

The desperate fight of American comrades against “Nazis” in general is comical. They are shocked by a torchlight procession in Charlottesville, while regular torch processions in the capital of Ukraine, which they so fervently support in its “fight for democracy”, don’t shock them. I speak as well about simple red-blue rainbow plankton, as well as about the famous “fighters” against oppression a la Tom Morello (whom I respect as a musician) and other celebrities, cosplaying Che Guevara with a red star on the cap. “A nightmare, Nazis are in America! They hoisted the colors of the confederates and shaved their heads! OH MY GOD”. American “Nazis” are the same clowns as American “anti- fascists”, by the way.

Kids, come into The Ukraine, we will show you Nazis. Real ones. Who kill people… kill massively, proceeding from the racial theory. They kill in savage ways like the SS did in the 40’s. We will show you a whole State that erects monuments to the ideologists and performers of the Holocaust, of Jewish riots, of the genocide of Poles. Who sweep away monuments to the liberators of mankind from Nazism. A State with a Nazi “Ministry of Truth,” repressions against dissent, promotion of racial hatred in schools, on TV, in children’s books. A State in which the Ministry of Internal Affairs supervises a website that incites the committing of murder of unreliable citizens, openly publishing all their personal information as well as members of their families.

So, when you will have such things in America, we will talk. When you have, instead of a car crashing into a crowd of anti-fascists, these anti-fascists like cattle are herded into the local House of Trade Unions and will be burned with Molotov cocktails (finishing off with steel poles those who try to escape), when the FBI creates a website on which it will publish the addresses of those who criticize Trump and the White Race, and the organized alt-right will start to go to these addresses, who, after your murder, will be called “patriots” and will be released, so then we will believe in your whining about Nazis.

And for now, suck on it, Mr American anti-fascists.

This letter was originally published at Stalker Zone, translated by Ollie Richardson and Angelina Siard.

Antifa Terrorists Soil Their Pants after Proud Boys Group Is Pictured Defending Houston from Looters

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Following the horrific destruction of Hurricane Harvey in Houston thousands of Texans, Christians, patriots and fellow Americans stepped up to rescue and assist those suffering in Texas.

Proud Boy Magazine reported:

When I saw the picture of a group of Houston Proud Boys, it gave me joy. I saw men who were standing up for their communities.

I didn’t know their stories. All of their houses could have been completely gone or flooded at that point. All I knew was that these were men who were taking solid steps to protect their neighborhoods.

When antifa saw this picture, they had a different take. Someone posted an article on an antifa-supporting “news site” that claims that they are “armed Fascists” who were roaming around Houston looking for looters.

 A group of Proud Boys members stepped up and defended Houston communities from looting.
A group of Proud Boys members stepped up and defended Houston communities from looting.

Antifa terrorists had a different reaction. The far left group known for beating heads and cold-cocking women after Trump rallies were horrified that decent Americans were protecting their communities.

Antifa is Playing Right Into the Hands of a Burgeoning Police State

0

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:

Many people involved in politics swear by the notion that “the ends justify the means,” which is typically the sign of a self-serving actor attempting to justify questionable if not downright evil action in order to get what he or she wants. While pursuit of “the greater good” is often put up for public consumption, the driving force behind this sort of action is almost always personal gain of some sort. This is what most politicians do for a living, which is why they are justifiably hated by the general public.

The moment you justify one very wrong action to achieve a noble goal, what’s to stop you from next even more unethical action, or the next and the next? Nothing. This is what’s so dangerous about going down such a path. Indeed, those who fight monsters often end up becoming the exact thing they claim to be fighting. The world doesn’t benefit from this, only the person who has gained power as a result does, at least superficially. Ultimately, even that person doesn’t benefit when all is said and done. A person who attains their goal by sacrificing principles is a tormented, miserable person. They may seem to “have it all” from the outside, but deep down they hate themselves and what they’ve become. There is no peace. I believe karma eventually catches up to everybody one way or the other.

– From May’s post: Do Ends Justify the Means?

One of the primary motivating factors that drove me to start writing publicly on a daily basis, was a recognition that the chaos and cultural lack of cohesion resulting from the thievery of the financial crisis and the increasingly corrupt, socioeconomic paradigm we live under would provide the pretext for “the state,” whether governed by a Democrat or Republican, to further dismantle civil liberties and usher in a country increasingly defined by less freedom. This was a motivating concern under Obama and it remains a motivating concern under Trump.

As I’ve warned repeatedly over the years, at some point the “war on terror” would be brought home to the good ol’ USA, with all enemies suddenly being labeled domestic terrorists. This is happening right now, thanks in large part to all the media hysteria about antifa and neo-Nazis.

Personally, I try to keep things simple and think it’d be wise if others did did the same for the sake of our future. I believe offensive violence is almost never justified, while self-defense almost always is. The purported objective of any group is irrelevant. The worst tyrants in the world always claim to be working for “the people” as they lock people up in gulags or concentration camps to torture and kill them. Ends don’t justify the means. The means are everything.

The reason I’m writing this post is to demonstrate that antifa is playing right into the hands of those who wish to further the objectives of a burgeoning police state. They provide fuel for unconscious people on the other side of the political spectrum who see their thuggishness and then squeal to the government to “do something about it.” If I didn’t know better, I’d assume antifa were probably a bunch of deep state operatives trying to convince the groveling public to cry out for a strong hand government solution. Since I have no evidence to back this up, I’ll just go ahead and call them useful idiots.

Importantly, it’s not just those dressing up like ninjas punching people for wearing polo shirts who are the only useful idiots. Those on the “right” begging the government to call them terrorists are just as foolish. As I tweeted yesterday:

For more on that angle, see my recent article titled: Stop Asking the Federal Government to Label Groups You Dislike ‘Terrorists.’

Unfortunately, it seems this train has already left the station. The results for those of us who love freedom might not be pretty.

As Politico reported earlier today:

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.

Since well before the Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly, DHS has been issuing warnings about the growing likelihood of lethal violence between the left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacist and nationalist groups.

Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.

Those reports appear to bolster Trump’s insistence that extremists on the left bore some blame for the clashes in Charlottesville and represent a “problem” nationally. But they also reflect the extent that his own political movement has spurred the violent backlash.

“It was in that period [as the Trump campaign emerged] that we really became aware of them,” said one senior law enforcement official tracking domestic extremists in a state that has become a front line in clashes between the groups. “These antifa guys were showing up with weapons, shields and bike helmets and just beating the shit out of people. … They’re using Molotov cocktails, they’re starting fires, they’re throwing bombs and smashing windows.”

Almost immediately, the right-wing targets of the antifa attacks began fighting back, bringing more and larger weapons and launching unprovoked attacks of their own, the documents and interviews show. And the extremists on both sides have been using the confrontations, especially since Charlottesville, to recruit unprecedented numbers of new members, raise money and threaten more confrontations, they say.

The way to stop this is actually pretty simple. Don’t get sucked in. Don’t pick “a side,” and don’t pressure others to do so. It’s just gang warfare and it won’t lead to anything good.

Moreover, we must denounce offensive violence as a political tactic and marginalize those who advocate it. 90{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of people don’t want anything to do with street violence irrespective of how much you despise the system, and believe me, I despise it. Don’t give into the negative energy. Negative energy creates negative outcomes.

Militant Revolutionary Abolitionist Group Wants to “Expropriate” Your Property and Give It to Someone Who Deserves It (VIDEO)

by Daisy Luther, The Sleuth Journal:

The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement is Antifa on steroids. An offshoot group that has popped up has a website with some pretty extreme ideas, including expropriation of property from their enemies. They’ve declared war against capitalism and the state, promoting “militant defense.”

Their intro says:

We situate our political movement in the context of the abolitionist struggle against slavery and continue in the tradition, from Nat Turner to the Black Liberation Movement. We believe the Civil War was never resolved and the system of slavery transitioned into the prison industrial complex. Our struggle today must begin from this starting point. Lastly, as revolutionary anarchists, the abolitionist struggle must be extended to the state and capitalism, the perpetrators of oppression. The revolutionary movement in the US today is at a cross roads, as fascist movements are expanding, and the state becomes increasingly authoritarian.

They want to build a new Underground Railroad to free people from detention, incarceration, deportation, or white supremacist violence. They welcome “comrades” to aid in their efforts to build “organized defense groups, local councils, and regional/national councils.”

Let’s set the mood with their introductory video.

I guess they’re not planning on holding hands around the campfire and singing Kumbayah.

This kind of “anarchist” should not be confused with the voluntaryist type of anarchist, who, as a group, strongly supports free market principles.

While a lot of us wish the state was not so state-y and that the police were less police-y, most rational people aren’t ready to go out and lay a beatdown on anyone they perceive as an enemy. Nor do we wish to demonize capitalism or give away all our personal property for the greater good.

The political foundation of the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement consists of:

  • Self-Defense
  • The Neighborhood Council
  • Conflict Resolution and Revolutionary Justice
  • Abolition of Gender
  • Expropriation and the Cooperative Economy

While all of these are alarming, I’m particularly concerned about their calls for “self-defense,” “revolutionary justice,” and “expropriation.

Let’s look at what they have to say about these topics through a variety of direct quotes.

Militant Self Defense

The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement endorses “militant” self-defense, citing the tactics of the Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army, and the Rojava Revolution in Syria. They model themselves, particularly, after the Rojavas.

The training of these new militants is the revolutionary heart of the Rojava Revolution. The long-term intentions of the training programs are to ensure that everyone can participate in self-defense. To that extent, there are also localized training programs that arm the public for a second tier of neighborhood defense. The Self Defense Forces (HPC*) were formed for this purpose. While specific armed groups, such as the People’s Protection Units and Asayîş (YPG** and YPJ*** respectively), have been formed to fight external enemies, the HPC are civilians that get arms training with the specific goal of maintaining autonomy against internal forces that might seek to consolidate power. They are volunteers who receive both political education and self-defense training.

These armed groups are able to defend their communities from attacks without compromising revolutionary values. As the YPG and YPJ liberate ISIS territory new communities become incorporated into their political project. Rather than establish a top-down system of governance, the revolutionary movement establishes new neighborhood councils and communes, feminist education programs, and decentralized local-based militias within each liberated town. To implement this form of political organization, there is undoubtedly a give and take. While the towns receive the infrastructure necessary for self-governance, such as weapons and training from the YPG to set up their own, local defense groups, they agree to uphold certain social principles like feminism and social ecology. (source)

One tactic they endorse is, basically, beating up “Nazis.”

Anti-fascist tactics – focused primarily around the use of physical force—proved effective in forcing neo-Nazi groups out of entire neighborhoods. The tactics were simple, if they came upon a neo-Nazi, they would use sufficient force to drive them away. The network was so successful that it eventually grew to 100 chapters. By joining in a nationwide network, they were able to help spread and strengthen the model while still maintaining local control over each chapter. (source)

Of course, who gets to decide whether someone is a Nazi? Must the person be wearing a swastika t-shirt or a white hood? Or is this just an arbitrary decision based on the color of their skin or who they voted for? You can see how easily this could go downhill.

A Full-blown Civil War Appears To Be Materializing: “Nobody Will Be Able To Retreat To A Neutral Corner”

by Jeremiah Johnson, SHTF plan:

At the rate things are going, a full-blown civil war appears to be materializing.  Colin Kaepernick began it all with “taking a knee” in protest of the National Anthem.  Fast-forward one year later, and read this, released by Yahoo Sports for just how far it has gone:

“The Colin Kaepernick story has gotten seemingly endless attention because its reach goes far beyond football.

A pretty good reminder of that came Saturday afternoon in New York City, which is far removed from Kaepernick’s former NFL home of San Francisco. At a rally in Brooklyn, dozens of current and former New York police officers wore shirts that said “#WeStandWithKap” and at the end of the rally they took a knee and raised their fist, according to the New York Daily News.

Kaepernick became a household name when he took a knee for the national anthem last season to bring attention to racial injustice, including police brutality. It also appears to be one reason he has not been signed by any NFL team this offseason.

The police officers noted to the Daily News that they were speaking out against their belief that NFL teams aren’t signing Kaepernick as punishment for his protest.

“What Colin Kaepernick did is try to bring awareness that this nation unfortunately has ignored for far too long,” said NYPD Sgt. Edwin Raymond, an organizer of the rally, according to the Daily News. “And that’s the issue of racism in America and policing in America. We decided to gather here today because of the way he’s being railroaded for speaking the obvious truth.”

So, now the New York City Police Department weighs in on this.  They claim Kaepernick is being “railroaded,” eh?  Funny: He didn’t do it the year he went to the Super Bowl with the 49ers and a billion people were watching.  He didn’t stand for anything then, and he stands for nothing now.  That flag and that anthem represent something…and many died to keep the nation flying that flag and playing that anthem intact.  The sad irony of rights under the Constitution is that Kaepernick has the right to protest…a right that was enabled for him to exercise by his betters.  Look up the pictures of him and his buddies holding up automatic rifles, standing for nothing except themselves: perfect symbols of a decayed society and a dying empire.

The country is committing suicide as we speak.  The push for revision and redaction in all the history books has been on for some time.  Now we’re seeing actual mobs of demonstrators surrounding these historical statues.  The push is on.  On August 19, demonstrators in Detroit gathered to protest and demand removal of a statue of Christopher Columbus.  In all the major cities, the push to remove these statues along with protests continues.

It’s not going to stop here.  Now that Bannon is gone, a letter was sent to the President by more than a dozen conservative groups asking for him to not move toward a more moderate stance.  Indeed, over the weekend he “Tweeted” the Boston Police Department commending them on the way they handled the protests there.  The President has also adopted this “wishy-washy” stance of “we all need to heal the wounds” in the U.S., as if any of these protests had any relevance to any injustices happening today.

Seriously, this is all out of Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”  Go back and review the Glenn Beck programs of 2012-2014…when he presented some very good information on the Weather Underground (particularly Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers), as well as Cloward and Piven, and all the “outstanding” work by Van Jones to topple the system.  I’m not a personal fan of Beck’s, but back then he used to have very comprehensive layouts that were easily referenced and noted that concerned these Marxists and Communists marching under the banner and guise of “social justice.”  All that stuff that Van Jones had planned back then, with funding from Acorn and George Soros…it is manifesting itself here and now.
