  • Most Important Point About Charlottesville Not Being Discussed.

    Like many people, over the past week, I've read a lot of opinion pieces about what happened in Charlottesville last weekend, and about President Trump's reaction to it. But there's one very important point that I didn't hear any writers making, though several readers alluded to it in online comments sections. Groups like Antifa, are part of a growing cult, whose central command is college campuses. This cult I'm referring to is Marxist/Atheist inspired White self loathing and repentance, which is born out of the "oppressed vs oppressor " theories of Antonio Gramsci, the father of Cultural Marxism. There's a...
  • Who are the antifa? President Trump equated them with white supremacists. Here's why he’s wrong.

    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...
  • Trump is right, violent extremists on both sides are a threat

    08/17/2017 1:53:34 PM PDT · by USA-FRANCE · 34 replies
    <p>It is a canard that by calling out left-wing violence the president was implicitly endorsing violence from the right, especially since he explicitly condemned neo-Nazism. Trump was fully within a time-honored intellectual tradition when he denounced “both sides” that were rioting in Charlottesville. After World War II, scholars and policymakers recognized that totalitarianism was not the exclusive product of either branch of the accepted democratic right/left political spectrum.</p>

    American Greatness ^ | August 16, 2017 | Conrad Black
    Almost everything about the Charlottesville riot was disgraceful except the conduct of the president. The move to take down the statue of General Robert E. Lee was nonsense. Lee has few rivals as the greatest general in American history (Grant, Sherman, MacArthur, and Eisenhower perhaps). He opposed the secession of Virginia from the Union but, as was common in the South then (and has not entirely died out in any region of the United States today),believed he owed his first loyalty to his state over the United States. He was less dedicated to the virtues of slavery than was Charlottesville’s...

    Fort Worth Rep. Kay Granger on Wednesday lined up with President Donald Trump, condeming violence coming from “both sides” and raising concerns about a rush to remove Confederate monuments. Speaking with North Texas conservative radio host Mark Davis on Wednesday morning, Granger was asked whether in the wake of clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters last weekend in Charlottesville, violence perpetrated by left-of-center activists was being ignored. “[W]e need to recognize it and talk about it because it’s on both sides,” said Granger, who said people on both the left and right are guilty of escalating their political activism to...

    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...

    Both NBC News and the BBC have put out videos offering fact-checks on some of President TrumpÂ’s claims about what took place in Charlottesville. Both agree there were violent anti-fascist protesters who came to the protest looking for a fight. First, hereÂ’s NBCÂ’s report. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73VkD5CeEv8 "Since the weekend, witnesses have told us that in fact, both sides were antagonizing for a fight,"; NBC's Tom Costello says. Later, the report shows a clip of Trump's Tuesday press conference in which he said, "What about the alt-left? What about the fact that they came charging ... with clubs in their hands, swinging...

    If you “stand” with President Trump then you’re a Nazi, according to Rosie O’Donnell. The comedian took her frustrations to Twitter saying anyone who “stands” or “works” with “Adolf Trump” is a Nazi. “if u stand next 2 and work with adolf trump – yes u f–king are a nazi,” O’Donnell tweeted Tuesday. The 55-year-old shared several messages on her Twitter account in response to Trump’s press conference during which he criticized the media’s coverage of Saturday’s deadly attack at a political protest in Charlottesville, Virginia. O’Donnell tweeted, “republicans – this is on you – every single one of you...

    Last weekend, serious violence broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, when a group of white supremacist demonstrators was confronted by a group of folks who were there to condemn the message the demonstrators had come to advance. The message was critical of the government for removing a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee from a public place. For some, Lee is associated with the military defense of slavery. For others, he is associated with the military defense of the right of states to leave the union -- a union they voluntarily joined. For the organizers of the Charlottesville rally, the removal...

    The unfortunate and violent events that occurred in Charlottesville last weekend were a tragedy. We cannot accept the loss of life over political violence. The mainstream media has distorted the truth as they always do. And President Trump has fought back against this one-sided narrative spewing out through the airwaves to the dullards believing the propaganda. The alt-left is real and is much more violent and against free speech than those on the alt-right. Believe me. Yes, there were Nazis there. Yes, there were white supremacists there. But they do not make up anywhere close to a majority of the...

    o understand the events in Charlottesville, it helps to know how the left operates. During the 2016 campaign, veteran Democratic operative Scott Foval unwittingly shared the left’s playbook with anyone who cared to see. Foval explained his strategy to an undercover journalist with James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. He boasted specifically about the art of provoking violence at Trump rallies, all of which was recorded on camera. “There’s a script of engagement,” said Foval. “Sometimes the crazies bite, and sometimes the crazies don’t bite.” He continued, “They’re starting conversations in the line. Right? They’re not starting confrontations in the rally. Because...

    White nationalists are planning a rally in Lexington to oppose the planned removal of two Confederate statues from the lawn of the former Fayette County Courthouse, and they’re considering a lawsuit aimed at blocking the move, a leader in the movement said Tuesday. Matthew Heimbach, chairman of the Traditionalist Worker Party, said his group and others allied under the umbrella of the Nationalist Front are discussing plans for the rally. Heimbach said people in the Lexington area asked his group get involved. The group has members in Kentucky and plans to try to recruit more, he said.

    A black Virginia man is speaking out after he says he was viciously attacked and beaten by white supremacists inside a Charlottesville parking garage during violent protests Saturday. Deandre Harris, 20, said he traveled to Emancipation Park to protest a white nationalist rally when a fight broke out. He said he was chased by a group of white men and beaten with metal poles as he lay helpless on the ground. Video posted by journalist Chuck Modiano, shared by Mr. Harris, showed a group of white men throwing objects at a black man on the ground and hitting him with...

    It was inevitable that President Trump’s brief news conference on Tuesday concerning national infrastructure would, instead, be redirected to a discussion of the violent protest in Charlottesville this past weekend and his delayed criticism of the racist and pro-Nazi groups that were central to it. It did not seem inevitable, though, that Trump’s responses to questions about those protests would cement as correct the general interpretation of his first comments on the matter: He’s sympathetic to the goals of the men who marched Saturday night carrying Confederate and Nazi flags — and even to the “peaceful” torchlight protest on Friday...

    The tragic events in Charlottesville, VA last week provided a flash point for the nation to have a discussion that we’ve been putting off for too long. The past few years of extremist politics have turned fringe ideas into mainstream ones, with Antifa communists and Alt Right Nazis getting plenty of the attention they crave, but don’t deserve. But why is this happening? Antifa activists have been gathering steam for some time now, with a major incident that brought them into the public eye being the riots at Berkeley over the appearance of Milo Yiannopoulos, himself a figure who was...

The largest scheduled rally is the "March on Google," which will take place in nine major US cities Saturday.

Damore has said he doesn't support the "alt-right," and will "likely not" participate. The "March on Google" rallies are scheduled to take place at these Google locations around the country: Atlanta Austin Boston Los Angeles Mountain Park, California New York...
