  • Jury Fines Man $1 For Punching Charlottesville Rally Organizer (Jason Kessler)

    For the crime of striking "Unite the Right" organizer Jason Kessler, a Charlottesville, Va., jury says Jeffrey Winder must pay a fine of $1 — far short of the maximum possible penalty. Winder had appealed his original guilty finding, which included a 30-day jail sentence. A judge had found Winder guilty of misdemeanor assault in February. After Winder appealed, a jury affirmed the guilty verdict this week but decided he should serve no jail time — and pay only a minimal fine. "They clearly thought about it very sincerely," Winder's attorney, James Abrenio, said of the jury. He also praised...

    I’ve spent most of my adult life producing theater in New York City. In that time, on more occasions than I care to remember, only 20 people showed up in the audience when I’d hoped for hundreds. I thought of that with a smile yesterday watching the maybe two dozen sad white nationalists hold their “rally” in Washington. I know how bad that feels, the Public Address system and stage you paid for mocking you. Jason Kessler and his gang more than deserved it, but you can see why they assumed they were going to sell out. The going narrative...

    Far-right protesters and counter-protesters have descended on Washington, D.C., on Sunday on the one-year anniversary of the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. Earlier in the day on Sunday, hundreds of counter-protesters took part in demonstrations across the city as white nationalists prepared for their rally. Apparent smoke bombs set off at white nationalist rally Updated: 4:18 p.m. The Hill witnessed what appeared to be at least one smoke bomb go off at the beginning of the "Unite the Right 2." Someone appears to have set off a smoke bomb at the center of an anti-fascist protest. 'Unite the Rally...

    (Led by Obama ‘Occupy’ Agitator Jason Kessler) President Trump denounced all forms of racism and violence in a tweet Saturday morning, specifically mentioning the Charlottesville riots that occurred one year ago. The tweet comes ahead of a “Unite The Right” rally that is scheduled for this weekend in Washington, D.C. The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans! — Donald J.

    So the white nationalists are coming back to Charlottesville, and once again we’re going to hear the standard media narrative that these bigots are “on the right.” Leave aside that Jason Kessler, the organizer of the original Charlottesville rally, was an Obama activist and an Occupy Wall Street guy. Never mind that Richard Spencer, the poster boy of white supremacy, reveals in a detailed interview in my new movie that he’s a progressive who supports nationalized health care and expanded centralized state, and whose favorite presidents are all Democrats. We need to probe deeper to understand who these white nationalists...

    Law enforcement and city officials are preparing for protesters and counter-protesters to descend on Washington, DC, this weekend. According to the shutitdowndc.org website, the Antifa side of the equation has purposes far beyond responding to the Unite the Right 2 demonstration set to take place on the Charlottesville, Va. rally anniversary on Sunday at Lafayette Park across from the White House. The National Park Service has issued a permit to Jason Kessler for his Unite the Right 2 rally from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the park and its website has a list of instructions, including warning people not to...

    The Washington, D.C., chapter of Black Lives Matter is planning to stage a counter-protest against the "White Civil Rights" rally scheduled to take place near the White House next month. The organizer of last year's deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., received a permit in July to host a similar rally on Aug. 12 in the nation's capital. The Black Lives Matter activists told a local Fox affiliate that they are disappointed the National Park Service approved a permit for the white nationalist protest. Black Lives Matter and Shut It Down DC are calling on "all anti-fascists and people...

    The clash between the alt-right and the hard left at last Saturday’s aborted “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville ended in what appeared to be a deliberate atrocity on 4th Street just below the Downtown Mall. One woman was killed, and nineteen others wounded when James Fields ran them down with his car. The reason for the car’s sudden acceleration is not yet clear, but the Antifa action with the baseball bat immediately prior to the incident does raise questions (see this post for more).Given the speed at which the car was traveling, and the number of people on...

    A Historical Perspective On Mass Violence [by Jason Kessler] 12/6/2015 Here's a different kind of question I've often had about large scale tragedies like natural disasters, diseases & gun violence: We get so caught up in the emotion of the violence that we don't consider the long-term, historical consequences. To put it bluntly: the planet is overpopulated already. Maybe we shouldn't try to cure every disease, we shouldn't confiscate all the harmful drugs, etc. Perhaps we'd be happier if we made peace with the fact that rabid animals are going to dwindle the herd from time to time (as they...

    Compared Republicans to serial killer and praised Clinton, gun control, Iran deal! The organizer of the violent rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was until recently a Barack Obama supporter and was also a member of the leftist radical Occupy Wall Street Movement, according to a report from a hard-left activist group. The details from his recent past have many in the blogosphere and on social media asking: Is the Charlottesville rally organizer really a left-wing plant? Jason Kessler organized the Aug. 12 “Unite the Right” rally in which white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and other groups battled in the street with “Antifa” and...

    According to a report by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Jason Kessler, the organizer behind the “Unite the Right” event in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned violent was a member of the Occupy Wall Street movement and an Obama supporter. SPLC writes, “Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.”

    Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone's face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here. I've been suspicious of the nature of the violence at this supposed Alt-Right demonstration since the news first began breaking. It is no secret that radical elements in the Democrat left have...

    Report: Charlottesville Racist Leader Was Former Occupy Activist, Obama Supporter by Joel B. Pollak 15 Aug 2017 The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reports that Jason Kessler, the organizer of last Saturday’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is rumored to be a former Occupy Wall Street activist and supporter of Barack Obama. The left-wing SPLC is often partisan and overzealous in targeting hate groups, lumping legitimate conservative organizations together with actual extremists. Therefore its identification of Kessler’s left-wing roots is significant.

(NEWSPLEX) -- In the days since the violence of the Aug. 12 Unite the Right rally, anger has mounted, some of it directed at the civil rights organizations that represented rally organizer Jason Kessler in his legal fight to keep the rally in Emancipation Park. The Rutherford Institute founder John Whitehead said he doesn't regret taking the case and notes that it's about defending the First Amendment, not supporting the mission of the rally.

    Jason Kessler is the man who organized the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. One person is dead and at least twenty were injured when a car smashed into protestors who were on the road. There were some curious facts surrounding this event, so we decided to do some digging. What we found raises serious questions about who Jason Kessler is actually working for… First of all, the ACLU defended Jason Kessler and forced the city to keep his permit in place. This was after the city raised concerns about the ability of Law Enforcement to keep Antifa, BLM,...
