Skip to comments.Mayhem in New Orleans Over Confederate Monuments: Assault Vehicles, Snipers, and Vandalism
Posted on 05/03/2017 2:01:33 PM PDT by lowbridge
Left-wing rioters from Antifa drove to New Orleans in an armored assault vehicle, maced a woman in a wheelchair and defaced several Confederate statues. In exchange Confederate supporters landed punches and knocked an Antifa across the head with a flag pole. All of this happened Monday evening on May Day, a date significant to left-wing groups and which coincided with other uprisings around the country.
Most of the violent activity occurred while police waited on the sidelines, according to sources who likened the situation to that in other liberal cities like Berkeley. Police were purportedly told to stand down while scenes of mass violence erupted between right and left-wing demonstrators.
Monday evening, as about a dozen monument supporters were on guard, an assault vehicle (which some have identified as a deuce and a half) full of so-called Antifa, or anti-fascist demonstrators showed up looking for a fight. A banner on the side of their vehicle read, Fuck off Nazi scum! and they were waving the red and black flags of anarcho-communism.
Several protestors confronted the Confederate group with taunts like, F___ you, nazi! and Your monument is coming down! Several bottles and other small implements were thrown at the demonstrators including Andrew Duncomb, a black Confederate supporter.
Several sources confirm that another black Confederate supporter, Arlene Barnum was harassed by several Antifa until she was brought to tears. Despite being purportedly anti-racist activists, Antifa called Barnum a coon, Aunt Jemima and house negro. When she returned to her car later that evening one of her tires had been slashed.
As the night dragged on the violence escalated. Eileen Marcinkowski, a woman whose pelvis was crushed in a May 4th car accident and is bound to a wheelchair, was maced by an Antifa.

Every liberal is a violent totalitarian thug.
Exactly what Confederate monuments were involved in this incident on Monday?
Antifa needs an attitude adjustment. They are nothing more than our version of ISIS, and the longer they are allowed to operate without fear or any consequences, the worse they are going to get.
[and the longer they are allowed to operate without fear or any consequences, the worse they are going to get.]
It’s now exactly the scenario Manchurian Candidate Obama wanted. The only legal way is for cops to act and/or National Guard to respond.
Which will of course, inspire them and BLM-types to do even more. All by design.
Picture is here.
Beware the obscenity on the vehicle.
There is no rule of law in those dumps. And the feds could care less that there is no rule of law.
Back in the day, the feds show up to make sure some black kids could go to a white school. Now, we've got paid anarchists working at the behest of enemies of America, but the feds can't be bothered.
Wow. Is that six-wheel drive?
ice pick and a match takes care of that.
You can buy those for about 3 grand surplus.
Remind me again what color the Nazi flag was? Oh, yes. Red and black (and a little white). Irony is lost on these people.
When did an M35 “Deuce and a Half” start being considered as an armored vehicle?
Last I remember, anything more than a pistol round would cut through the cab doors, and if you were in the back you had almost no protection..........
Too bad nobody shot the tires out!?!
The New Orleans PD is as corrupt as any in the country and fits the city administration very well.
We are approaching a time when someone is going to get killed while cops stand by. Its coming.
