    The Richmond Times Dispatch ^ | August 17, 2017 | Chris Suarez
    CHARLOTTESVILLE — After using his blog and Wes Bellamy’s Twitter history to make a name for himself last fall, those platforms are now being used against Jason Kessler, the “pro-white” activist who organized the Unite the Right rally that turned deadly on Saturday. Articles and conspiracy theories about Kessler’s past as a supporter of President Barack Obama and wannabe liberal activist who participated in the Occupy movement abound now as President Donald Trump continues facing backlash for his response to the rally that resulted in one woman, as well as two state police officers in a separate incident, dying. On...

    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.”

    MSNBC’s ultra liberal Chris Matthews actually called out Antifa violence and questioned who they are what it is that they stand for exactly (finally). Lecia Brooks, of the Southern Poverty Law Center fought back claiming masked Antifa members “take a principled stand to stand against white supremacists wherever they may show up.” What she really means is that if you are a Trump supporter, you are a white supremacist. “I know their name is anti-fascist. Do they only go after fascists or anybody, say, in the global economic community they don’t like? Matthews began. “No. They are strictly anti-fascists. They...

    Well this is fishy. His name is Jason Kessler. He is the one cited as the organizer of the now infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The thing is, Mr. Kessler’s arrival on the “alt right” and/or “White Nationalist” scene didn’t occur until November 2016. That’s right – Kessler didn’t start his white nationalist activism until after Donald Trump won the White House. Prior to that it appears he participated in the far left/socialist Occupy Wall Street movement as noted by the far-left, George Soros-funded Southern Poverty Law Center Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological...

    White supremacist and ‘Unite the Right’ leader, Jason Kessler, was once reportedly a supporter a former President Obama and the Occupy movement. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (an organization that is certainly no friend to Conservatives), Kessler revealed his political transformation around November 2016, the same month then candidate Donald Trump won the presidential election.

    The suspect for the shooting at a Republican baseball practice was an outspoken GOP critic who said this year that it was time to “destroy Trump” and his allies. Authorities identified James T. Hodgkinson, a home inspector from Belleville, Ill., as the lone suspect for the attack that left five people injured.... Bernie Sanders..said in a statement that Hodgkinson "apparently volunteered" for his presidential campaign.

    Schulz insists the former president remains true to his progressive values, and said “taking money from Wall Street is not the same as being bought by Wall Street" Wake Up Call for all the OWS (Occupy Wall Street) activists: You can’t OCCUPY WALL STREET, because greedy grifters Barack and Michelle Obama are already squatting on it. It’s the same old story sung in the words of a song, “The rich get rich and the poor get poorer”. According to Christopher Wallace at Fox News, Obama’s $400,000 Wall Street speech leaves the liberal base “stunned”.

    March 25, 2017 – 1 PM – A Day for Patriots to MARCH FOR TRUMP and MAGA gathered in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, across from the U.N. In NYC the actual march didn’t seem to happen, though about 40 Trumpers gathered first at Trump Tower – at 11 am- and then walked to the gathering in the UN Park. So, you could say there was a mini-march. A peaceful gathering. DIVERSE (as always). Once at the rally, I saw a nice solid assemblage of patriots. Not huge, but not tiny either. Maybe 100 or even a bit more...

    As Kathy Lipscomb watched TV newscasts of “black bloc” anarchists smashing windows at a UC Berkeley protest, the former organizer of Occupy demonstrations was obsessed by two thoughts. The first, she said, was: “Oh no, not again.” The second: “We can’t let them help ruin things this time.”

    From Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter, the left has been reborn. Can it find a way to harness the populist uprising that brought Trump to power? In late October 2011, I was volunteering at the Occupy Wall Street library in lower Manhattan. Tucked into a corner of Zuccotti Park, the library was staffed mainly by anarchists of an exceedingly orderly bent. If society were suddenly freed from coercive institutions like libraries, these people would gladly spend the morning sorting donated books by Dewey decimal number—as they were doing in the mild fall weather. I was there for only...

Kshama Sawant went on an anti-Trump rant following the election that stirred up progressives’ emotions against Trump voters, calling them part of “a racist agenda.”... “You are the new black people of America,” Sabra told her Muslim audience gathered in Chicago. “We are the community that staged a revolution across the world.

    A liberal activist and organizer coordinated with reporters from the conservative news site Breitbart during the primaries to cover his disruptions of events for candidates such as Sen.

Aaron Black, an associate with Democracy Partners and a former Occupy Wall Street organizer, worked with the pro-Trump site Breitbart, tipping it off about his stunts, exchanging raw video and coordinating coverage, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. Black has resurfaced recently as one of the people featured in undercover video from the Project Veritas group. In the video, he claims to work for the Democratic...

    NEW YORK — For a time, Occupy Wall Street was everywhere with its grass-roots encampments — first in New York City, then globally — and the refrain, “We are the 99 percent!” And then it was gone. Its most famous camp in lower Manhattan was cleared out in an overnight police raid two months after it started, and other Occupy locations fizzled soon thereafter. But five years later, demonstrators gathered once again in New York’s Zuccotti Park on Saturday to commemorate the movement and what they said has been its lasting impact.....

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OCCUPY WALL STREET AND ITS DETRITUS may have faded from the nation’s public parks, but experienced far-left organizers are ecstatic over the influence of a new movement, Black Lives Matter (BLM). Founded in 2013 around the death of Floridian Trayvon Martin, BLM has within its grasp the radical revolutionary goals the Bill Ayers activists of old, and more recent new class of far-left operatives, had before now been unable to attain. The Frontier Lab’s in-depth research, gained through unanticipated access to organizers, activists, and allies of BLM, deconstructs the movement’s appeal and what the implications for marketers of...

    Violence has gotten a lot of attention in the 2016 presidential race — from the kicking and punching of protestors at Trump’s rallies to incitements of violence against Muslim refugees and Mexican immigrants to promises by various candidates to use overwhelming military force to destroy the Islamic State. But nonviolent resistance — that is, when unarmed civilians use a coordinated set of actions, such as protests, strikes, and noncooperation to directly confront opponents without harming or threatening to harm them — has actually been incredibly influential in this election. On both the left and the right, popular movements have brought...
