RESISTANCE MOVEMENT. Honorary Nordic Resistance Movement member Vera Oredsson has been acquitted on both counts of incitement to racial hatred for comments she wrote online in 2018.
At the end of September, Vera Oredsson stood trial for two counts of the thought crime of inciting racial hatred. The verdict came on Monday 14 October. Vera was acquitted on both counts, with the Swedish state having to cover the legal costs.
Vera was on trial for two comments she wrote on the Nordfront.se website in 2018, including a comment condemning parents who take their children to so-called “pride parades”.
To celebrate the good news, we have conducted a short interview with Vera.
Hi, Vera! Congratulations on your victory! What was your first thought when you were informed of your acquittal?
Naturally I felt a great relief. I wanted to avoid possible fines, as I think the risk of financial insolvency is worse than prison. Moreover, the Resistance Movement’s fundraising needs to go to activities, not to the state.
What did you think of everyone’s performance during the trial?
The people supporting me did great. The members around me created a genuine community spirit, and my lawyer was very good. All this gave me peace of mind before and during the trial.
If I’m not mistaken, this is the second time you have been charged for incitement to racial hatred. Are you getting tired of this law and its usage?
The incitement to racial hatred law is driven by Jewish influence, and I’m sick of it. Imagine not being allowed to wave your hand at a certain angle, spontaneously thank someone with an old Swedish phrase or express disgust at moral decay. People constantly criticise the Third Reich’s so-called dictatorship, but I believe democracy’s freedom of expression has greater restrictions than National Socialism ever did.
Do you have any good advice for comrades who may stand trial for incitement to racial hatred in the future?
If you go to trial, dressing appropriately in court is a plus. Be calm and composed, no swearing or uncouth behaviour. But you probably know this already, as we are not democrats or Marxists. The lawyer will advise you on what not to say, as they always want an acquittal, even though it can be difficult to comply.
Never deny your innermost convictions, and always correct accusations that you are a “Nazi”! I did this myself when the prosecutor asked if I was a so-called “Nazi”. Of course, I replied I was a National Socialist!
Thank you for the interview, Vera! Do you have anything you want to say to the readers before we finish?
I am concerned that our freedom of expression will become increasingly limited and that the struggle will suffer. I already see how some of our members are warning against unnecessary lawsuits and encouraging caution.
But should we really allow ourselves to be browbeaten in fear like this? If so, our opponents have already won. I understand the criticism, but even with the knowledge that you could be prosecuted, you simply must not allow your free speech to be obstructed. We are a fighting organisation that must take risks!

Tens of thousands took to the streets to protest the NATO involvement in the Russia/Ukraine war:
By Eric • (old post from 2021)
Business Insider is an irredeemable, absolute shit publication. And that’s a shame for time was, this publication was highly objective, respectable and – well – it performed this thing once called journalism.
This article was in yesterday’s propaganda pulpit:
The article is an insult to ordinary people. The energy is baked within the article is throwing the blame for a worldwide, supply chain jamboozle – however this article is throwing the blame on YOU. ORDINARY, HARDWORKING PEOPLE. For being consumers. In a purely consumerist economic framework. WHO IS STILL ASLEEP?!?
This system has declared war on all of us. This system; the fusion of industry, finance, tech, pharma, defense-contractors interlaced with our Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of policy makers. Their ideas took hold in academia. And yes – their mouthpiece is that fucking fake and gay mainstream media. The system sticks their finger in our fucking face and spews pure horseshit – with their straight LIES and we as grown adults that know a couple of three things about reality – we are to accept their messages of post-truth? We are in a post-truth era. We have invisible monsters abound – Forever Virus, Cyber Herpes (which will be fabricated), climate emergency hoax. This system is pushing the masses that accept their message at face-value into a place where they expect you to be grateful you are receiving fresh air through an eye dropper, if your social credit is in check with whatever the fuck CNN, Chuck Schumer, Slate, Lindsey Graham, Mother Jones, Bill Gates, Cardi B, B’nai B’rith and a group of non-binary, grass fed, fucking mezzofanooks have conjured up on Twitter.
The system has it’s end game set on phasing you out. Their aim is to erase and replace you with a climate change refugee. you are to accept this as atoning for the sin of Western Civilization and usher in YOUR OWN DESTRUCTION.
I do not even need to pull quotes from the Business Insider article. It’s absolute SHIT. Instead I will share with you exactly what you already know to be true. Reality!
Consumerist Capitalism: Sizzling Plates and Crinkly Bags
First off, sales, advertising and marketing is an industry in of itself in America and it is a major sector of whatever still exists of our real economy. Think Chili’s/Applebee’s/Fridays/Longhorn Steakhouse chain restaurants – those restaurants stick a mediocre piece of meat on a plate – a plate that is sizzling literally sizzling hot. And LOUD. – SIZZLE BRICKA-BRACKA-FIRECRACKER-SISS-BOOM-BAH – it is subliminally captivating – the plate that the server carries across the restaurant and everyone turns their head and oooh-ahhhh-oooh…this is not done by accident. It’s a carefully conjured technique to sell the sizzle – not the steak.
Have you ever encountered a bag of potato chips? The crumply, noisy, unable-to-be-ignored sensation known as a potato chip bag. That thing was specifically designed as a weapon of aural ultra-mega terrorism. No one can escape the grip of that crinkling fucking bag. Tell me truthfully you haven’t heard that bag crinkle and wondered what the fuck some person was eating. If you can, than you are in on the scam – hahah. The portions, packaging, placement and positioning of potato chips – no one can deny the institutional status that potato chips have in the land of Uncle Sam.
Uncle Sam. Uncle Sam and Aunty Semite. Who arranged this marriage? Let’s not deviate …yet.
Our Economic, Social and Ideological Reality
America has been in the throws of Neo-Liberal, debt-laden, borderless, raceless, genderless, cosmopolitan, consumerist capital at a more exponential rate every single day America pushes past 1945. I wasn’t alive then, yet I’ve read America had some relatively wholesome years in the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s. I get my information from Sopranos reruns for they teach me all the truths that Klaus Schwab, Michael Bloomberg and Larry Fink want you to never know.
American consumer patterns fall into two segmentations of purchasing of goods – inelastic (ie rents, mortgage payments, utilities, food, clothing) and elastic (ie Aston Martins, Air Jordan sneakers, Versace dental floss). This is the cornerstone of the economy and the markets of goods and services. America, more than any country, pushes, pushes, PUSHES products into people’s plain sight and the legerdemain libels of sales, marketing and advertising are set in motion to create a perceived necessity of ownership of a most wife array of elastic economic goods. Materialism is the game to the big swinging dicks on Wall Street, to the dudes in the streets gettin that paper, gaining that clout dawwwwg, to the bugmen waiting for Star
Wars Was 88: “Return of the Genderfluid Giardians”, to the tens of millions of kids immersed in social media networks heavily influencing their fashion, diet and tech gadget frenzies – c’mon thirty years ago prior to the internet there was heavy influence from the likes of MTV and FM Radio and what was seen on network television sitcoms themselves as well as the eternal commerical breaks.
That’s what Globohomo-America has become. A never ending fucking commercial break.
Built to Last v. Planned Obsolescence v. Built to Break
Circa 1954, a community – a town – had local shops, owned by local people and sold quality goods to other local people. Through the steady pace of reliability, dependability and trustworthiness of doing business with the members of one’s own community, this allows for trust to be forged. And when there are more and more opportunities for trust to be brokered, this is how a high trust society emerges. A high trust society is one where the environment and behaviors of your neighbors become predictable.
Towns boomed with high trust. And this led way to trade. Neighborhood hardware, toy, sporting goods and book stores. Owned by your neighbor. Perhaps some tools are needed – have a visit the local hardware store. You would speak with the man at the shop and explain the types of jobs you need to get done around the house. The shop keeper knew exactly the types of tools – hammers, screw drivers, wrenches, saws, etc – and the necessary hardware, too – bolts, nails, screws, etc – the owner of this shop right down to the newest, part-time employee knows, with great thoroughness, the entirety of the goods available for sale and in which situations a customer should be shown options as to what is available to get a job done.
The tools each had a warranty. Warranties were rarely exercised. However, if there was a defect, the customer would simply bring the defective item back to the store, the store would replace the item on the spot. Then the store would go about exercising the warranty in due fashion with the manufacturer. You see, the store is part of the community. Beyond it’s reputation it is in the marketplace to conduct good business with it’s neighbors. These were your neighbors you would be doing business with. Members of your community. Participants in the going concern called the high trust society. This still exists in parts of America today however I was born an urbanite and have not seen such characteristics interwoven within my community since 1985. Items were built to last.
Now, as neighborhood stores got gobbled up by regional retailers and regional retailers the phenom of the shopping mall exploded all throughout America. I don’t have the statistics on this nor do I care to look this up for we can state this is my from my own anecdotal interactions with the universe. I’d be willing to bet there is at least one other person that is familiar with the explosion of the shopping mall phenotype!
The shopping mall phenotype was born in “it’s the nineties” Americana. Look, the point I am making here as it relates back to the
Talmud Business Insider article – in the nineties, packs and packs of kids in suburban high schools would spend their Friday nights at the shopping mall three towns over, they’d buy clothes – Nike, Guess, Levi’s, Ray-Ban perhaps, or maybe they were naz-Goth kids and bought alot of black clothing and jewelry, maybe they were trendy young women and shopped at The Limited, or Abercrombie, maybe they shopped at Lids and bought $55 hats, maybe they bought $85 dollar Ralph Lauren Polo sweatshirts at Macy’s, maybe they bought tshirts of Nirvana, Metallica, Marilyn Manson, Tool, Alice in Chains, maybe they bought all of those records, cassette tapes, compact discs too.
(by the way, the purchase of the stylish attire was specifically purchased to be worn the following Friday night at the mall, to conduct the same ritual once more)
Records to Cassette tapes to Compact Discs. This was not simply a solution for having to resort to a #2 pencil to re-spool a cassette tape’s tape run amuck. This is called planned obsolescence. There are many components of industry involved here. The planned transition to an augmentation of what worked perfectly fine before. See, if industry moguls in plastics, metals, magnetic tape, vinyl, audio/video hardware, audio/video auxillary components (like receivers and subwoofers, for instance), assembly lines (we will get to this in a moment), the music industry, the media (when I say media I am not speaking solely upon news. Media, the mass media juggernauts, own the music labels, the publishing companies, the radio broadcasts, the magazines, the newspapers, the movie studios, the comic books, the concert venues, the movie theaters, the popcorn vendor at the movie theater, etcetera etcetera), these forces of industry have and do and if owning a few nice things in the year 2030 does not violate the Zero-Carbon-Censorship-Vax-Democracy-rebirthingOfCorporateValueCircular-GreenBlueCommunitarianismOfBlackrock-blockchainReappropriation1619 laws of Fink-Schwab-Bloomberg, will one be allowed to purchase a guitar? Will it actually be an air guitar like Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure? This is not even hyperbole as to attempting to illustrate what a decade of a completely post-truth, inverted reality we will be facing. You will pretend to have a guitar in your hands, although it might not work because all of the air has been sequestered by the Davos.
Planned Obsolescence is most prominent in all forms of computer technology. Servers, desktops, laptops, mobile phones, smart watches, etc. The mesh of specs, the CPU, amount of RAM, ROM, storage, graphics card etc – the piece of hardware is planned to lag as the operating systems, software, web applications, etc are built to be much more robust going forward. The hardware is static in it’s capabilities. Therefore, be it 18, 24 or 36 months, to stay connected to the digital emulation of your life, you must upgrade devices. Yet you can see this is a ploy, a merchant’s ploy, to require you to expend money into an elastic good. This is a malicious technique. This is not as bad as it gets.
Built to Break and Be Replaced • Goods from the Chinamerification-verse
This is where we are at. Right now. The woman that wrote the article in the Business Insider gave no consideration to what has become of the industrial powerhouse the United States once was. The only reason ordinary people would be purchasing more of anything is the fact that everything you buy from Walmart is a piece of shit that is built to break and be replaced. And the consumer is doomed, for they must participate. Vacuums break within months. Lawnmowers are complete shit. Drills malfunction. Coolers you use to out ice and beverages and bring to the job or maybe fishing, or to the beach – yeah, those spout leaks within a season’s end. Baseball gloves disintegrate. Basketballs never, ever inflate properly. The pump/needle apparatus to inflate the basketball bends and breaks in the basketball. It happens alot. The bicycle tire pumps break sometimes on first use. Even bandaids don’t stick like they used to.
You see, all of those neighborhood hardware stores are gone. In their place are physciatrist, psychologist and insurance offices. Even the regional retailers have been collapsed into the vortex of the intentional globalized consolidation of wealth into the coffers of the very few. This was the intention of globalization all along. Never was it intended to expand markets, increase competition, stimulate innovation, encourage creation and risk, create an exponential level of opportunities to those that may have previously been prohibited from taking part in “free market enterprise.”
The Trilateral Commission was formed between David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Henry Kissinger in the early 1970s. The purpose of the rigging together if the Trilateral Commission was to export labor to foreign markets that would substantially undercut the existing union structured compensation packages woven within American manufacturing operations. It was indeed, the livelihoods of tens of millions of Americans that were able to first participate in Consumerist Capitalism, beginning post-1945 – the livelihoods came from manufacturing jobs.
Radios, railroads, rifles, rafts, rope – the actual rewind-buttons that once fit into that cassette tape player – the depth and breadth of the scope of American manufacturing covered it all. Everything was built inhouse.
Fake and Gay: Democrats v. Republicans
There was no protection being afforded to the coming dismantling of the American labor market, the high trust society, the demographics of the population and to the very concept of national sovereignty at the onset of 1992. When it came to globalization in the context of elections and scampaigns, Democrats took a favorable view of globalization for by stripping the working class of work, this could be weaponized purely for political theatre purposes by the Democrats, once known as the “working man’s party.” For Republicans, keep in mind, circa 1992, the GOP was the party of the religious, those that are quite deliberate in their celebration of Constitutional Law and finally, the then financial elite. The very financial elite that stood to have their profitability receive a healthy injection due to the prospect of enormous reduction of labor expenses. Labor includes the wages, payroll taxes, health insurance, retirement plans and other benefits that employees are paid in the United States. Especially with the labor unions behind employees.
Therefore, there was no motivation for career politicians to interject and create any type of policy insulating and isolating the labor exportation.
Everything is now built to break and be replaced.
1992: European Union/NAFTA/Commerical Internet • Globalization Launched
Internet: On 6 August 1991, the World Wide Web officially became open to the general public for non-commercial use.
In 1992, the U.S. Congress passed the Scientific and Advanced-Technology Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1862(g), which allowed NSF to support access by the research and education communities to computer networks which were not used exclusively for research and education purposes, thus permitting NSFNET to interconnect with commercial networks.
This was the first component of a coming seismic shift. The fact that commercial use of the World Wide Web – which was absolutely booming, BOOMING, worldwide, in terms of sudden interconnectivity of ideas that transcended the notion of boundaries, of borders, across the globe. For corporate raiders, this was digital sovereignty. Digital Sovereignty would supercede the aspect of national sovereignty as defined by borders. Yes…the Trilateral Commission pioneered this plan for decades, in the spirit of the international central banking cabal and all of it’s gusto, and with it’s blessings as well (remember that Rothschild funded Rockefeller, remember that Warburg and Schiff funded the Bolshevik Revolution).
The writing was on the wall ..or in cyberspace – burial plots for your nation-state, sovereignty, ability to function independently outside of the reach of globalist aspirations, was all coming crashing down.
NAFTA • North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) established a free-trade zone in North America; it was signed in 1992 by Canada, Mexico, and the United States and took effect on Jan. 1, 1994. NAFTA immediately lifted tariffs on the majority of goods produced by the signatory nations.
NAFTA was written to function within the trade mechanisms of United States, Canada and Mexico. NAFTA stated in 1992 that the agreement “calls for the gradual elimination, over a period of 15 years, of most remaining barriers to cross-border investment and to the movement of goods and services among the three countries.”
This was a key component to true globalization, in terms of trade. The Trilateral Commission had already invested in the Chimericafication infrastructure in China. With NAFTA passed, also in 1992, the Chimericafication effect could easily spread a hop, skip and a jump away, across the southern border. Fortune 500 companies, Russell 2000 companies began exporting their labor “overseas” – American labor systematically dismantled and sent to Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Dominican Republic, China, Bangladesh, Vietnam, South Korea, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Morocco, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan… Globalization was full throttle ….firing on all cylinders, on all four compass points…
European Union: Maastricht Treaty, came into effect at the end of 1992, on January 1st, 1993 to be exact. The Maastricht Treaty, officially known as the Treaty on European Union, laid the foundations for the European Union as we know it today. The Maastricht Treaty significantly increased cooperation between European countries in a number of new areas:
- Twelve countries; Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom, signed the agreement on February 7, 1992.Since then, a further sixteen countries have joined the EU and adopted the rules set out in the Maastricht Treaty or in the treaties that followed later (the United Kingdom has withdrawn from the European Union, the movement known as Brexit.)
- The Treaty introduced European citizenship, allowing citizens to reside in and move freely between Member States.
- The Treaty established a common foreign and security policy with the aim of “safeguarding the common values, fundamental interests and independence of the Union”.
- The Maastricht Treaty paved the way for the creation of a single European currency: the Euro. It also established the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European System of Central Banks and describes their objectives.
- The Treaty also established rules on how the Euro would work in practice. This included specifying what a country needs to do to join the Euro area.
- The Treaty called for synthesis between inflation, levels of public debt, long-term interest rates and exchange rates – in order for a nation’s existing currency to become tethered to the Euro.
So, Lugenpresse…pray tell how you dare attempt to hold Americans accountable for the global supply chain disruptions that have been created directly as a result of the fact that:
- Everything people buy is a piece of shit built to break.
- Everything people buy likely crossed an ocean to arrive in the aisles of Walmart.
- The systematic, intentional dismantling of the American Industrial Economy, in conjunction with the decimation of National Sovereignty to the benefit of the global, corporate entity, to the benefit of the shareholder class – sealed the fate of America, Constitutional Law and ultimately the very American Ethos.
- Global supply chain disintegration is very real as it’s carefully calculated assembly brought it into existence in the first place.
- The only thing America now manufacturers are arbitrarily diagnosed behavioral health conditions which fuel this behemoth, ugly, disingenuous new industry. “A psychiatrist? Well that’s a just a racket for the Jews!!! – Livia Soprano, Season One, circa 1999
- The collapse of America, as well as it’s European cousins, was launched, OFFICIALLY, in 1992. NAFTA is not a conspiracy theory. The European Union is not a conspiracy theory.
- Fuck you Business Insider.
The energy right here, right now, with all that is happening around us, with the walls closing in, your heritage, your faith, your race, your existence is under both covert and overt assault and it is only going to get worse.
The globalist empire is real, the dual-edged sword that came with globalization was the explosion of the information age. It was within the sanctuary of a once uncensored, uninterrupted, pure, wholesome exchange of information that dissidents worldwide engaged in a twenty year long rapid exchange of corroborating information that confirmed what we all know to be true: a global financial system that is tethered to a debt-based, fiat currency – with which the only intrinsic value once came from a sense of faith in the system.
That faith is long gone. That system has betrayed all of humanity. The system is the absolute enemy. The people are waking up. This is not a collection of words from a wanna-be blogger in Boston. THIS IS A BIG FUCK YOU FINK!!!
There is nothing the system can do to repel what is coming.
That’s right…I am bringing a new fire, it’s the brother-fire, you can’t take my volition from me. From us.
It is with extreme prejudice I show you the the objective reality that lay before us in this time. For I am one who honors tradition .. tradition reveals certain truths… Heads Will Roll…..the natural order of the universe is calling on us all and there are those that will face our fate on our feet…we will never be brought to our knees… history is coming back…everyone is watching the Sopranos again…the Sopranos contains the esoteric, secret, pre-Kabbalah, Challah language and order of all the universe to witness it’s power and glory…my message to the system…with inspiration from some words of Johnny Sack…
Either you begin to take a step back and restore some value in the humanity you wish to eviscerate from the face of the earth…or I will rain a shit storm down on you like you’ve
Jamaica Plain (JP) is quite familiar to me. It is my understanding that a group, organized elsewhere, came to JP to protest Drag Queen Story Hour. I have been away from the area however at this restaurant I just saw the local news report:
“Neon-Nazis Bring Hate to Jamaica Plain!”
“White Supremacists Attack Counter-Protesters!”
These local news reports are masters at the swindle. They showed very little footage of the scene today (which is widely available on Twitter, elsewhere).
What local news outlets do, is obfuscate and flummox.
Conflate, confound and contort.
They showed footage of Charlottesville, from 2017, to draw an association between the two events.
Charlottesville was a federally permitted event for the Unite the Right event to speak in support of preserving cultural landmarks.
Today’s protest was a group of men protesting the Drag Queen Story Hour.
Quite different events. Different causes. Like comparing apples to bowling balls bere.
The grooming of children must stop. The gender-expressive community of men, who dress in drag, have absolutely no fucking business whatsoever being anywhere near young children.
Yet, the men that dress in their drag – unbeknownst to them – are just useful idiots in a much larger, nefarious plot.
Drag Story Hour NYC, for instance, receives state-subsidized money to carry out their degenerate activities – money that is granted to this organization directly from City Council – which means that is TAXPAYER MONEY. NYC’s City Council has self proclaimed Marxist/Socialists in office (although all they are indeed are neoliberal globohomo-ists doing the work on behalf of the grand Zionist Internationalism plot).
I have examined the Form 990s of this nonprofit and the same cast of characters account for the source of their other donations/contributions. Let’s call them ADL-adjacent.
This is all being orchestrated to further destabilize “heteronormativity” – which healthy people call “normal.”
The boys that went to JP had some moxie – JP is the belly of the beast of radical “cultural Marxism” in New England. They were met with resistance – which is not a surprise.
I myself was accosted by Antifa and BLM in the very area these boys were in – back in 2015. So these boys were on the offensive, I applaud them, I tip my hat to them.
“PEDO SCUM OFF OUR STREETS” – can’t disagree with that.
Farmers’ actions are becoming more and more anti-EU actions, will French and Belgium farmers join them soon?
Dozens of farmers gathered at the application center for asylum seekers in Ter Apel on Thursday afternoon. They reported to Ter Apel because they “no longer feel welcome”, according to a spokesperson. After more than an hour, the farmers left.
The farmers had gathered earlier in the day in a farmer’s yard in nearby Bourtange. The group then went by tractor to Ter Apel. There they parked on the verge of a road running past the application center.
Seventy tractors from Germany
According to the organization, about seventy tractors from Germany drove with the group, including from Bremen. “They want to support us in our fight against the government,” said the spokesman. He is referring to the government’s nitrogen policy, which has been protested against by farmers for weeks.

This was the “Revelation of the “METH
Awesome. This structure was built in like 1978 or something, it was a complex instrument, which was used as a compass, calenders, sundial, clock, etc – and contained the “New Age Ten Commandments” which are very close in philosophy to Agenda 2030. The structure was commissioned by “R. C. Christian” – a cryptic way of saying “Rosicrucian.”
It is plainly obvious that the man and organization that designed and had these built – more importantly – authored the “New Ten Commandments” were the Rosicrucian. RC Christian. Ro Si Christian. The Rosicrucian movement emerged in the 1700s and was very Kabbalah/Masonic/Hermetic/etc type of group that focused on esoteric and occult wisdom with emphasis on mysticism and spiritual enlightenment. Globalists. World governance. New World Order. Synthetic soy bug hamburgers. Bill Gates and Kabbalah Harris. Enlightenment.
FUCK YOUR ENLIGHTMENT NIGGA
What graced the stones was this message:
“Let these be guidestones to an age of reason”
Age of Reason is very Rosicrucian/Lucis Trust/Masonic/Round Table/Club of Rome/League of Nations/Davos/Jewish/MK-Ultra type shit – all of this shit is interconnected and has been for two thousand years.
These were the Tranny Ten Commandments:
1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. (DEPOPULATION)
2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity. (CRYPTO-KALERGI)
3. Unite humanity with a living new language. (PRONOUNS)
4. Rule Passion — Faith — Tradition — and all things with tempered reason. (Rule, as in, destroy these things)
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts. (Epstein’s clients)
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.(like the World Court called for in Jerusalem by David Ben Gorion, the Vince McMahon of Zionist Israel)
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.(DEFUND THE POLICE NIGGA)
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.(INDIVIDUALISM TO THE UTMOST EXTREME, ELIMINATINATING ANY COLLECTIVE SPIRIT)
9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite. (Correct, it will be the prize of the One World Order that they alone know the truth)
10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature. (CLIMATE CHANGE EMERGENCY HOAX)
Well, the structure has been BLOWN THE FUCK UP. I will say that this is an awesome symbolic gesture as in a big
FUCK YOU LIBERAL NEW ORDER.
It is good. Along with the tractor truck activism underway worldwide. We all want to break free from this Kosher nightmare. Without being gobbled up by the hate speech surveillance robots.

Interview with Moscow-based author, Riley Waggaman
Global Research, November 29, 2021
In terms of safety, how does Sputnik V’s stack up against Pfizer’s shot and other mRNA vaccines? It’s difficult to say. Russia does not have a VAERS-like database for reporting suspected adverse events among the general public. In fact,there is no regularly updated, publicly available data on any post-vaccination complications in Russia. It seems the Russian government’s position is that they do not exist. But doctors and lawmakers tell a different story, one supported by an informal database of suspected vaccine-linked deaths. Undeterred, authorities have compared these concerned citizens to “terrorists” and are now threatening “anti-vax” doctors with fines and even prison time, in essence making any medical professional who questions the vaccine a suspected criminal in the eyes of the Russian government.
There is another, equally alarming element to…

We might read the cliché that the world is a changing place, meaning that culture and society are not static elements of the world, but are mutable and progressing along a future-oriented timeline. This inescapable reality determines that what culture and society look like in the future will be shaped by the foundations of the future the Right creates today.
That the world is interconnected and global networks, such as the progressive Elites maintain, is an inescapable reality of the present environment. Any movement or organization seeking social, cultural, and political change will eventually be challenged by these Progressive global networks. The global Progressive is well-financed and organized into mutually supporting networks. An axiom of network warfare is “it takes a network to defeat a network” is true, since networks permit resiliency, conditional unity, and communication.
The Right and ethno-nationalist organizations must become transnational players on the world stage, form a global, interconnected network of similar elements in order to survive global changes such as media and financial censorship inflicted by global Elites.
Rightist and ethno-nationalist movements currently developing throughout the world would make greater political gains if they were less isolated from other ethno-nationalists. The global Elites will continue their attack on Rightists and ethno-nationalists, primarily through perception shaping through media, economic sanctioning through banks, credit and online payment systems and supporting legislation with ever broadening definitions of crime and censorship — legislation that is being considered by the United Nations right now. The development of a global networked body provides a defense against these attacks and ensures our survival.
We can survive through the following:
- Networks provide mobility and communication of ideas, news, and perspectives over a highly distributed Rightist demographic that can evade and defeat censorship and Progressive media control. A globally interconnected network of Rightists and ethno-nationalists provides resilient communications.
- Distributed, networked, and politically reliable networks are easy to locate, difficult to destroy, provide insulation from attack and ensure the dissemination of alternative theories and ideas.
- Interconnected groups develop inertia and sustain momentum on a larger scale more quickly than an individual group. This provides momentum in maintaining the social and political inertia developed by local Rightist groups and provides resiliency by defeating attempts to isolate local groups by interventions meant to break this momentum.
- A trans-national network ensures that Rightist ideas have a favorable means of propagation and proliferation throughout the world, that everyone in the transnational network is aware, to some degree, of ethno-nationalist ideas in another part of the world, making censorship and media misrepresentation problematic and maintaining a challenge to Progressive narratives.
- This trans-national movement provides a global connected, international base of popular support for Rightest and ethno-nationalist ideals. Popular support is an essential, critical element of insurgency and a mutually networked approach provides support base more quickly than individualized local groups can.
- A transnational network is a step forward in the development of a multi-generational Rightist movement, and with this development, the Right and ethno-nationalists become a fixture of the global environment and not just another social network. We become the environment and with that, as difficult to counter as the weather and as self-creating. Multi-generational networks ensure that Rightism is a constant, future dynamic approachable by future generations seeking a way to maintain their culture and independence.
The conflict of the future will be human network against human network within a Fourth Generation environment; the early stages can be seen presently in Charlottesville and the Yellow Vest movement. It will assume an insurgency-like appearance and character. For these reasons, the anti-globalist Right must begin transforming itself into global network of mutually supporting persons and groups that communicate, organize, and challenge globalist Elites and their domestic allies.
Without such networked organization, each Rightist person or group can be easily isolated, censored and marginalized out of existence. Global development into a trans-national network can form a mutually supportive counter to intentions and machinations of the billionaire globalist Elite and ensure the survival of Rightist ideas, tradition, and culture.
Within bioethics, four principles of descending importance are discussed when weighing risks and benefits of a proposed intervention. These four principles are:
Autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice.
Autonomy speaks to your ability to make your own health decisions, and supersedes all other principles on this list. We as a society have shifted so much towards autonomy that we allow schizophrenics to create third world conditions in our cities, because forcing them into mental hospitals to provide treatment for them could override their autonomy. Does this level of autonomy correlate with the autonomy given to Americans regarding Covid vaccines? Not even close.
Beneficence speaks to the potential benefits an intervention provides. Answers regarding how efficacious our Covid vaccines perform in real life would speak to beneficence. In my medical opinion, the vaccines seem to help prevent serious complications and hospitalizations. However, the timeline of this efficacy, and whether or not there is any gained benefit to patients with natural immunity, remains unconvincing to me. These important pieces of information will continue to elude me, since asking questions regarding vaccine efficacy puts both my license and board certification at risk. If you are doubtful on this point, please look up the ABIM joint statement on misinformation, and understand that punishment for misinformation only goes one way -if you accidentally make false statements that support vaccine efficacy you will not be punished (see NEJM preliminary report for vaccines on pregnant persons).
Nonmaleficence is a strong counterweight to beneficence -does this intervention cause harm? This speaks to the risks of the vaccines. Why would Nordic countries restrict the Moderna vaccine? They believe that the small risk of cardiac complications outweighs the potential benefits of the vaccine, especially in these early stages when the risks and benefits are not exactly clear.
As in the fog of war, Americans have been baptized in the fog of medicine; where diseases and interventions have murky knowledge, and presentation of data is filtered through compromised media sources. Do you believe NEJM or JAMA is almost becoming as contentious as whether you watch Fox News or MSNBC? In the past, the FDA has prided itself on its ability to withstand political pressure to green light new therapies because of how they initially treated thalidomide. The FDA knew about the fog of medicine, which clears over time and allows for data to leak out when you are not an early adopter. Back when thalidomide came out, the FDA dragged their feet and watched as complications rolled in from other countries regarding serious fetal abnormalities. Yet the FDA has moved with light speed on the applications of Covid vaccines, and for the majority of these vaccines we are still talking about emergency use authorization.
How clear is the risk for these vaccines? I posit that the risks are not fully clear from the fog of medicine yet, and that when evaluating risks, you should err on the side of caution. That would be the moral position.
However for many people, Justice overrides potential reservations that I might have. In speaking with my colleagues who understand that there are tangible risks associated with the vaccine and that the efficacy may not last very long (hence potential need for ongoing boosters), they truly believe that the ‘few broken eggs to make the omelet’ are necessary.
Personally, I do not believe the burden to override autonomy has been met for these vaccines, and the honest discussion I have with my colleagues regarding how many eggs will be broken to make this unappetizing omelet are not reflected by the discussions in our media. According to the media, the vaccines are fully efficacious, (thereby creating some cognitive dissonance for the reasons behind boosters) and the risks are minuscule. Questioning risks becomes tarred with misinformation and is relegated to political disagreements, only to be discussed on political shows such as Tucker Carlson, though never in an honest medical discussion.
One more worrisome consideration that has become clear: our elites have already made up their minds on these issues. Even when the fog of medicine has cleared, it does not seem to change anything, and the narrative rolls along without even a speed bump. Did FDA officials resign because of political pressure? It appears so, yet the media cannot even agree on that because to do so raises the question of political interference at the FDA.
Does anyone seriously believe that there is NOT political intervention at the FDA? When Trump was pushing the FDA to rush vaccines it was presented by the narrative as yet another fault of Trump and reason for removal. Yet the evidence seems clear that there is no change of direction from the Biden administration to slow down vaccine approval.
Objective analysis of Autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence and justice would lean towards waiting for the fog of medicine to clear, and eliminating political interference. That would be best for Americans, and best for restoring the trust in our medical profession. Best case scenario would be avoiding thalidomide complications. Worst case scenario would be widespread natural immunity like India.
On a national scale, I am pessimistic about these issues, yet on a micro level these nuanced discussions have already helped many Americans make decisions regarding their healthcare.

Anne Wilson Smith, Charlottesville Untold: Inside the Unite the Right Rally, Shotwell Publishing, 2021, 396 pages, $24.95 paperback, $5.00 e-version from publisher.
Part I can be found here.
On the evening after police cancelled the rally, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe held a press conference and said:
I have a message to all the White supremacists and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today. Go home. You are not wanted in this great commonwealth . . . . You came here today to hurt people, and you did hurt people . . . . But my message is clear. We are stronger than you. You will not succeed . . . . There is no place for you here. There is no place for you in America.
As Mrs. Smith writes, the Governor’s remarks were outrageous for at least five reasons:
- His characterization of Unite the Right attendees as “White supremacists and Nazis” that was sure to inflame ire against all participants.
- His assertion that the citizens whom he disfavors should not be allowed to exercise their constitutional rights to assemble and speak.
- His order that protesters “go home” when in fact many attendees were from Virginia, and at any rate he has no right to close Virginia to residents of other states.
- His unjustified accusation that attendees “wanted to hurt people.”
- Worst of all was: “There is no place for you in America.” McAuliffe was proposing the cultural cleansing of political enemies, many of whom want only to protect their culture and history. If these people have no right to exist in America, what is to be done with them?
The word “bias” does not begin to capture the character of media reports: They portrayed the victims as aggressors and the aggressors as victims. The general tone can be gathered from headlines:
“Charlottesville Reels After a White Supremacist Rally Turns Deadly” – Politico
“Shocking Photos from the Violent White Supremacist Rally in Charlottesville” – BuzzFeed News
“How A White Power Rally in Charlottesville Turned Deadly” – The Daily Beast
“Ted Cruz Condemns Charlottesville Terror: ‘The Nazis, the KKK and White Supremacists are Repulsive and Evil’ “ – PJ Media
“Terror in Charlottesville: Woman killed as car rams into anti-racist protesters at White nationalist rally” – Salon
“Two Virginia State Troopers Killed in Helicopter Crash Tied to White Supremacist Rally” – Fox News
The crash was due to mechanical failure and happened five hours after the rally was stopped.
Everywhere, the impression was that Unite the Right attendees were violent fanatics. Many stories did not even mention that the rally was to defend the Lee statue; readers were left to assume that the only purpose was “white supremacy” or “Nazism.”
For his own safety, Kessler spent the evening after the rally at a family member’s home, watching the day’s events as reported by Fox news.
He called a reporter he knew who was with the Fox affiliate in Charlottesville, Doug McKelway, to ask for an opportunity to address the public. McKelway informed him that the station had deemed him “too toxic” to be allowed on air. Kessler . . . suggest[ed] they put him in a contentious setting, such as on an opinion show like Tucker Carlson, so it would not appear the station was sympathetic to him. “I don’t care if they want to yell at me. I can take it. I just want a chance to speak.” McKelway said he would pass along the suggestion. Kessler never heard back.
Pres. Trump speaks
Many of Pres. Trump’s detractors complained that he did not address the public quickly enough once news broke of the “deadly white supremacist rally.” Trump explained: “Before I make a statement, I like to know the facts.”
Other politicians in his party had no such scruples. Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted: “Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #Whitesupremacists . . . . The organizers of events which inspired & led to #charlottesvilleterroristattack are 100% to blame. . . . They are adherents of an evil ideology which argues certain people are inferior because of race, ethnicity or nation of origin.”
Senator Cory Gardner tweeted, “Mr. President — we must call evil by its name. These were White supremacists and this was domestic terrorism.”
Senator Orrin Hatch said: “We should call evil by its name.”
None of these public figures seemed to know or care that the rally had been organized to defend a monument.
That evening, the President said “We’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides.”
As we have seen, most of the displays of hatred and violence originated on the side of the counter-protestors. But relative to other public statements by prominent persons, Pres. Trump’s words were remarkably fair.
Two days later, the President gave an interview. He rambled a bit, but made at least four important points left out of most media accounts:
- There were many supporters of the Robert E. Lee statue among the Unite the Right protesters.
- Unite the Right had a permit to assemble, unlike the counter-protesters.
- There were people on both sides responsible for violence, including an aggressive left-wing contingent.
- Removal of Confederate statues is likely to lead to removing the Founding Fathers.
Pres. Trump was denounced by many whose comments on the events were far less truthful or fair. One such denunciation came from Joe Biden, who later claimed he was inspired to run for president by Trump’s supposedly inadequate reaction to the “white supremacist violence” of Charlottesville.
Jason Kessler was “ecstatic” when he first heard Trump’s remarks, noting that the President had spoken “simple truths that the American public had not been given.” He briefly imagined it might be possible to win the battle for public opinion. Later, he managed to get interviews on a few alternative news outlets with hosts such as Alex Jones and Gavin McInnes, but even there his reception was hostile. He recalls that “they wanted to slit my throat.”
In the days following the suppression of the rally, as Mr. Kessler explains, “Heyer’s death was used to stoke a moral panic about the boogeyman of ‘White supremacy’ which has led to an unprecedented, un-American wave of political censorship against right-wing political dissidents and immigration patriots.” Even an ADL representative acknowledged: “I cannot think of another incident to which the backlash has been nearly so widespread.”
Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, GoFundMe, Uber and the gaming chat app Discord all removed countless accounts associated with the rally and its attendees, as well as some that were not.
Mr. Kessler explained the process behind the de-platforming trend: There are groups that:
manipulate our language, lie about the things that we’re saying, like, omitting things that have to do with the self-defense aspect. And then they go to all these different companies in Silicon Valley and they’re giving lectures as if they’re authorities, and as if their case has been proven. They’re doing one-sided prosecution with these tech companies.
Companies do not investigate such claims before acting on them.
Banning Unite the Right participants and many perceived allies was an important precedent for banning a sitting president from nearly all social media after the Capitol was breached on January 6, 2021. Mrs. Smith writes:
How might things have been different if Trump and other conservatives had stood up to the wave of censorship that took place after Unite the Right by passing legislation to protect the ability of dissidents to access online public forums? Unfortunately, most of them — weak-willed, short-sighted, and unwilling to be associated with the pariahs of Charlottesville — ignored or even applauded the purge.
Another aspect of the backlash to Unite the Right was the doxing campaign against participants. Hours of video of the events of August 11 and 12 were uploaded to the internet almost immediately, and Antifa and its sympathizers got to work identifying participants:
Within days, or in some cases, hours, Unite the Right attendees were doxed and their identities widely publicized. National news outlets amplified and celebrated the public shamings. “A Twitter account identified this Unite the Right participant. Now his family’s disowning him,” gloated Vox.com in an article dated two days after the rally. The article reports that “[t]he protester’s father says their family loudly repudiates his son’s ‘vile, hateful and racist rhetoric and actions.’ ”
One rallygoer estimated that “hundreds of people” lost jobs or became estranged from their families because they were at the rally. Mrs. Smith interviewed some of them for Charlottesville Untold. One man was reported to Child Protective Services by Antifa in an attempt to have his children taken from him. Andrew Dodson, an engineer who develops clean-energy technology, was driven to suicide by his ordeal; the man who doxed him was invited to appear on NBC News!
A number of criminal trials resulted from Unite the Right, and the difference in treatment for participants and counter-protesters was stark. Corey Long is a black Charlottesville resident who doused some rally participants with what one described as “some kind of paint thinner” and attacked them with an improvised flame thrower made from a bottle of hairspray. A man on the receiving end testified he had feared becoming a “human torch.” Celebrated by media outlets such as the New Yorker and The Root, Long was sentenced to just 20 days in prison.
Richard Preston is a Ku Klux Klan member from Maryland. When he saw Long brandishing his flame thrower at passing demonstrators, he drew his handgun, pointed it at him, and screamed at him to stop. Loading a round into the chamber, he fired a single warning shot into the ground next to Long, hurting no one. He then holstered his gun and walked away. One person assaulted by Long called Preston a hero, suggesting his action saved lives that day. Mr. Preston was sentenced to four years in prison.
But perhaps the most egregious example of both media mischaracterization and politicized criminal justice involved a black man named DeAndre Harris and four white men charged with assaulting him. As the author writes:
A viral photo from Unite the Right depicted a group of White men holding weapons and standing over a Black man, Harris, as he lay on the ground. This photo, usually provided with no context whatsoever, was exploited by the media to help contribute to the public impression that Unite the Right attendees were violent racists on a rampage, looking to brutalize any non-Whites in sight.
Carefully omitted from such accounts were the events that led up to the photo.
It is common for Antifa militants to entice blacks to participate in violence by giving them simple weapons. DeAndre Harris had been given a “Maglite,” a long, heavy brand of flashlight, by an Antifa activist on the morning of the rally. Just before the viral photo was taken, Harris was following a group of departing attendees back to a parking garage in the company of Corey Long (who used the homemade flamethrower) and another black man. Sneaking up behind the attendees, Mr. Long tried to steal a Confederate flag while DeAndre Harris hit rallygoer Harold Crews over the head with his Maglite.
Brad Griffin of Occidental Dissent describes what happened next:
As [the three black men] are forced back into the parking garage, a Black male in a blue shirt runs up from behind one of our members, clubs him and knocks him unconscious. He continues to beat him with another Black male. THIS provokes the parking garage fight . . . .
The fake news was only interested in DeAndre Harris because he was Black and could be portrayed as a ‘victim’ of ‘White supremacists.’ They ignored the White kid who was bludgeoned with the club in the parking garage by DeAndre Harris’s friends which provoked others to rush to his defense . . . . Dan Borden and Alex Michael Ramos came to the aid of a League of the South member who had been clubbed and knocked unconscious in the parking garage . . . . What do the Charlottesville Police do? They issued warrants for the arrest of Dan Borden and Alex Michael Ramos. . . . [T]hey charged people who were forced to defend others.
A witness to the fight writes: “[Harris] clubbed one of our people and took off running . . . . They didn’t pick him out because he was Black. They picked him out because he ambushed someone from behind.”
DeAndre Harris was subsequently able to raise over $166,000 on GoFundMe, supposedly to cover his medical expenses. Soon after, he mysteriously starred in a professionally produced rap video “driving a Mercedes Benz and sporting a $2,000 pair of Nike Air Jordan Retros.” For two months, police failed to arrest him. Finally, the man he had struck from behind, Harold Crews, took the initiative to press charges. Harris was found not guilty of misdemeanor assault and battery by a judge who accepted his claim that he had intended to hit the flagpole, not Crews. The four men who retaliated against Harris received sentences of two, six, six, and eight years’ imprisonment.
Brad Griffin compiled a series of videos reconstructing the exact sequence of events surrounding the assault on Harris:
I contacted The Daily Progress [of Charlottesville] and NBC 29 about the video. I sent it to detectives at the Charlottesville Police Department. I told the Associated Press what really happened in Charlottesville. I played the video in person on my smartphone for a news crew from Atlanta that was interviewing me about the arrest of Alex Michael Ramos. We bombarded reporters with the video of DeAndre Harris attacking with the MagLite on Twitter. No one was interested in investigating or reporting the truth . . . . The media refused to report on it after gleefully showing the out-of-context video.
James Fields can hardly be said to have received a fair trial either. Just two days after the event, Pres. Trump treated his guilt as an established fact: “the driver of the car is a murderer.” A month later, the US Senate declared him a domestic terrorist. Potential jurors were inundated for over a year with coverage by a hostile media. More than one courtroom observer noted that his attorney failed to defend him aggressively. Despite considerable grounds for doubt regarding his intentions, he received a sentence of life plus 419 years.
Civil suits — offense
There were even more civil suits than criminal cases. Jason Kessler was, of course, sued, along with other rally organizers and participants who allegedly conspired to deprive onlookers and bystanders of their civil rights (see below). Mr. Kessler remembers calling every law firm in Charlottesville and not finding a single one willing to defend him. When he tried to do legal research at the law library of his alma mater, the University of Virginia, he was banned from campus. Eventually a sympathetic lawyer contacted him. He has spent most of the last four years trying to defend himself and to hold the city of Charlottesville accountable.
A fierce advocate for the First Amendment, Kessler was determined to sue the City of Charlottesville for violating his civil rights and the rights of all Unite the Right participants. He sought support for his suit from other people associated with the event, but found most of them either wanted to distance themselves from the residuum of Charlottesville, or were struggling financially and unable to help with legal expenses. Out of everyone involved with Unite the Right, Matt Parrott of the Traditionalist Workers Party is the only other named plaintiff on the lawsuit.
On the second anniversary of Unite the Right, Messrs. Kessler and Parrot filed suit against the City of Charlottesville and three named officials, charging that stopping the rally was a denial of free speech. Six months later, Federal District Judge Norman K. Moon dismissed the suit, ruling that law enforcement has no obligation to protect people when other parties attempt to suppress their speech. Mr. Kessler called this “a pretty novel ruling. We were floored when we got it.” Within a few days, he appealed, and is waiting for a ruling.
The principle at stake is called the “heckler’s veto.” This happens when authorities stop protected speech on the grounds that it might provoke a violent reaction. Mr. Kessler and many civil libertarians believe the government should not be able to appeal to such possible violence as grounds for failing to protect free speech. “The [prohibition of the] heckler’s veto has in some ways been established for a long time, then in some ways the details of it need to be fleshed out,” says Mr. Kessler. He adds:
If the police aren’t obligated to protect people, the First Amendment is done. The people who defended themselves [at Unite the Right] were not the aggressors and they should not have been put in the situation by police that they had to defend themselves. That’s what this case is about. Something like Charlottesville should never, ever happen again. Those effing cops need to show up and separate the groups and protect the First Amendment. It’s that simple.
We’re already four years in and they’re trying to wear us down by wasting our time, wasting our money . . . . We’re just at the Fourth Circuit. It could be years more before we’re done with this. But if — IF — we win, it will establish a clear heckler’s veto precedent across the land.
Mr. Kessler and his legal team are optimistic. They think their case is strong and that even if they lose the current appeal, the Supreme Court could look into the matter because standards on this issue vary in different federal districts.
As part of his efforts, Mr. Kessler has also filed a number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to get records, some of which authorities claim have been lost or destroyed. He notes allegations by the Heaphy Report that former police chief Al Thomas and the Charlottesville PD command staff deleted text messages relevant to their investigation. He asks:
Why did they destroy this evidence? They also went in and doctored certain documents to make it seem like they had done certain preparations that they really hadn’t done. That is a class-one misdemeanor that should, if these people were convicted, bar them from future public service. Of course, the government is not going to police themselves. So who is going to hold them accountable? That’s where I come in. I’ve been filing FOIA requests for the past 3 or 4 years.
When Mr. Kessler requested text messages from city manager Maurice Jones, he was told that no such messages existed. This assertion was proven false by former mayor, Mike Signer. In his book about Unite the Right, Cry Havoc, Mr. Signer gave details of his exchange of emails and text messages with Maurice Jones. Mr. Kessler cited Mr. Signer’s book to demand release of the data. A week before a FOIA-related trial was to take place, Mr. Kessler received a letter with a link to 1,200 pages of email, along with an apology claiming that Mr. Jones had misunderstood what was included in the request.
The fight continues:
We want an injunction to keep them from ever destroying more evidence like this again and we want them to recognize that these text messages are public documents and they need to change their practices forever because of this situation. We’re [also] asking for the judge to order them to hire an electronic forensics firm to go over their hard drives, their phones, with a fine-tooth comb and reconstitute destroyed messages so we can find out what the hell it is that they were saying in the first place that they so badly didn’t want anybody to see.
The Virginia public records act says that the city manager communications are never supposed to be destroyed. They’re supposed to be kept permanently in agency. . . . And no one in the media is holding them accountable, and even a lot of people who went to the rally are just moving on, like this doesn’t matter anymore. It does matter. People were set up. . . .
And so that’s why we filed this newest lawsuit dealing with FOIA and the Public Records Act, and to address that letter where they admitted they destroyed evidence. We’re trying to set some pretty exciting precedent for open government in Virginia because it’s such a murky area where precedent hasn’t been set.
Civil suits – defense
The most important civil suit against rally organizers and participants is Sines v. Kessler. The suit alleges that 10 organizations and 14 named individuals:
conspired to plan, promote, and carry out violent events in Charlottesville. . . . Starting at least as early as the beginning of 2017 and continuing to today, they have joined together for the purpose of inciting violence and instilling fear within the community of Charlottesville and beyond.
James Fields is listed among the defendants; the plaintiffs claim that the death and injuries from the ramming were the result of a conspiracy between Fields and the rally organizers. Kessler notes:
[T]hey are saying the rally was just a pretext to violently attack counter protesters, specifically racial minorities. Yet they have no evidence of that. They say that we conspired with James Fields, and yet there is no evidence of that. They’ve gone through all of our text messages, all of our emails, all of our social media. . . . We have the head investigator with the CPD Steve Young testifying under oath that there is not only no conspiracy in the death of Heather Heyer, but that there was no communication with James Fields whatsoever.
Many defendants suspect the suit really amounts to “lawfare,” i.e., a “factually baseless attempt to use bad-faith litigation to cripple them reputationally and financially.” This interpretation finds some support in lead attorney Roberta Kaplan’s response when asked what she hoped to achieve with the suit:
We absolutely can and will bankrupt these groups. And then we will chase these people around for the rest of their lives. So if they try to buy a new home, we will put a lien on the home. If they get a new job, we will garnish their wages. The reason to do that is because we want to create a deterrence impact. So we send a message to other people that if you try to do something like this, the same thing will happen to you.
The lawsuit is being financed by Integrity First for America (IFA), an organization that boasts that the case “is the only current legal effort to take on the vast [!] leadership of the violent White nationalist movement.” Among their donors are LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark, and actress Natalie Portman. Even though public records list no fewer than 33 lawyers working for the plaintiffs, the money will not run out any time soon.
Mr. Kessler says that “in nearly four years, IFA haven’t proved a single thing except that they can mug and beat down defendants who can’t afford attorneys and those who can’t afford researchers, expert witnesses, and evidence collection software to defend themselves on the same footing.” Yet media reports continue to portray the plaintiffs as plucky underdogs standing up to a powerful “white supremacist” movement.
As part of discovery, defendants have been required to turn over all email, messages, and social media posts about the rally, an onerous burden for some of the more active organizers. Matt Parrot, also a named defendant, calls this:
an ongoing fishing expedition where they’re desperately looking for some sort of evidence of criminal conspiracy to initiate violence in Charlottesville. They’ll find nothing. Essentially, they know they don’t have a case, but they have unlimited financial resources and they’re leveraging them with the hopes that we’ll eventually trip ourselves up on a technicality or run out of funds for our legal support.
In conclusion, the author remarks:
Even though an immense amount of data is available about the defendants’ communications and their activities the weekend of Unite the Right, none of the numerous defendants in the Sines civil suit have been criminally charged with anything remotely resembling a conspiracy to commit violence. If they are guilty as the Sines plaintiffs claim, why not?
The Heaphy Report
The City of Charlottesville paid $350,000 for an independent investigation of what happened at Unite the Right. It was carried out by the law firm Hunton & Williamson under the direction of Timothy Heaphy, and resulted in a 207-page report called Independent Review of the 2017 Protest Events in Charlottesville, VA, known as the “Heaphy Report.” As the author of Charlottesville Untold notes, “In a healthy media environment, the results of this review would have been headline news all over the country.” However, because it did nothing to support the official story about a “violent white supremacist rally,” it got little attention.
The report is a damning indictment of many public officials, but especially the leadership of the Charlottesville Police Department (who bore primary legal responsibility) and the Virginia State Police. The author paraphrases the report: “Neither agency deployed available field forces or other units to protect public safety at the locations where violence took place. Command staff prepared to declare an unlawful assembly and disperse the crowd. The City of Charlottesville protected neither free expression nor public safety on August 12 . . . . This represents a failure of one of government’s core functions — the protection of fundamental rights.”
The Charlottesville police chief at the time was Al Thomas, the city’s first black chief. Two people told the Heaphy investigators they heard Mr. Thomas say, at the first signs of violence, “Let them fight, it will make it easier to declare an unlawful assembly.” The report stated that “Chief Thomas’ slow-footed response to violence put the safety of all at risk,” and accused him of deleting text messages relevant to the investigation and trying to limit what subordinates told investigators. In the wake of the report, Chief Thomas resigned.
Matt Parrot notes that the Charlottesville police brass bear primary responsibility for failure, not ordinary officers:
The police all appeared angry, frustrated, and confused as I’ve never seen them before. While I was furious at them at the time, it’s clear that they were the victims of an egregious leadership failure which also imperiled them. They were not able to keep up with the entirely unnecessary chaos they had been ordered to unleash and then ordered to deal with.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe later published a book about Unite the Right. In it, he had a great deal to say about:
the historic sins of the state and the duty he felt to rectify them. He spoke about the “deep legacies” of racism, and described Richmond as “the capital of the Confederacy, spearheading the resistance to freeing slaves in the Civil War.”
He rebuked the words of Robert E. Lee’s great-granddaughter at the dedication of the Charlottesville statue of Lee in 1924, “remembering her ancestor as a man who she said represented the ‘moral greatness of the Old South.’ For her, the Civil War was not about slavery, it was about differing ‘interpretations of our Constitution’ and differing ‘ideals of democracy.’ She was wrong. It was about slavery and it was about treason, pure and simple.”
He wrote at length about his pet issue of restoring voting rights for felons, describing their disenfranchisement as “a legacy of Jim Crow, a variation of the poll tax,” adding, “I never whitewashed Virginia’s sordid history. In June 2015, I used my executive authority to remove the Confederate flag from Virginia license plates [which were available as a type of vanity plate].”
Readers may not be surprised to learn that the New-York-born McAuliffe was worried that when he first decided to run for governor, he “might have a hard time convincing Virginians I was truly one of them.”
Charlottesville mayor Mike Signer also wrote a book about Unite the Right filled with contempt for what he called “rebel flag-wearing defenders of ‘southern heritage.’ ” Mrs. Smith writes:
He hailed Nikki Haley’s efforts to remove the Confederate flag in South Carolina as a means to “repudiate [Dylann] Roof’s twisted, demonic project” and wondered, with regards to the Confederate statue issue, how he would feel “as a Jew, if I had to walk by a statue of Adolf Hitler.”
Such are the men who run the Old Dominion.
Mrs. Smith notes another aspect of Unite the Right that has not been adequately noted, namely:
the astounding amount of restraint showed by the attendees. Open carry was legal in Virginia, and there were hundreds of militia members and Unite the Right attendees bearing arms that day. Despite hours of being pummeled by hard projectiles and chemical weapons, those hundreds of armed Unite the Right attendees exercised remarkable self-control and restraint by NOT drawing their firearms.
The only shot fired by an attendee all day was Richard Preston’s warning shot intended to keep Corey Long from using his flamethrower.
Anne Wilson Smith’s Charlottesville Untold is the first comprehensive, objective study of what happened at the aborted rally on August 12, 2017. She has done a duty ignored by literally thousands of professional journalists who appear to have no interest in knowing the truth or informing the public.

Nothing has quite brought home to me the dishonesty of American journalism like watching the major “news” networks tell us what was happening in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017. As a thousand or so American citizens tried to gather peacefully to protest the removal of a monument to Robert E. Lee, the press regaled the country and the world with a hair-raising tale of neo-Nazis attacking a peaceful Southern town. This legend persists, a case-study in support of the old adage that a lie will travel halfway around the world before the truth can get its boots on. Now, over four years later, the first accurate and detailed account of what really happened has finally been offered to the public by a tiny pro-Southern publishing firm in Columbia, South Carolina. The author is the daughter of Clyde Wilson, a distinguished scholar of the American South.
Jason Kessler campaigns to save the Lee monument
The Charlottesville rally, officially known as “Unite the Right,” was the brainchild of Jason Kessler, a local resident who graduated from the University of Virginia in 2009. Mr. Kessler had little involvement in politics before getting wind of the antics of Charlottesville City Council Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy, who in 2016 began agitating for removing the Lee statue and renaming Lee Park in which it had stood since 1924. As Mrs. Smith writes, “Bellamy presented himself as a champion of equality, but his social media posts revealed an open hatred of White people.” Examples:
“I DON’T LIKE WHIT PEOPLE SO I HATE WHITE SNOW!!!!! FML!!!!” @ViceMayorWesB 12/20/2009
“I HATE BLACK PEOPLE who ACT WHITE!!! (B U NIGGA) – Jeezy Voice!” @ViceMayorWesB 11/17/2009

“Lol funniest thing about being down south is seeing little White men and the look on their faces when they have to look up to you.” @ViceMayorWesB Tweet 10/13/2012
Jason Kessler discovered these tweets and wrote about them on his website on November 24, 2016, resulting in Bellamy’s forced resignation from the state Board of Education. Mr. Bellamy issued an apology three days later, claiming the postings were made “many years ago,” although some were too recent to be dismissed as youthful indiscretions.
Mr. Kessler was not satisfied, and collected 527 signatures for a petition to have Mr. Bellamy removed as vice mayor. Local anti-white groups such as SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) and the Anarchist People of Color Collective began organizing to defend Mr. Bellamy and oppose Mr. Kessler. In March, 2017, a judge dismissed the petition for Mr. Bellamy’s removal on the grounds that not enough signatures had been collected.
The following month, Mr. Kessler met Richard Spencer, a prominent leader of the Alt-Right, which had emerged during Donald Trump’s first presidential campaign. Although the two men never became close, they agreed to cooperate to preserve the statue. Mr. Spencer staged a torchlight march in support of the monument on May 13, 2017, while Mr. Kessler reported on the event for the Daily Caller. Marchers gathered at the monument chanting things such things as “You will not replace us,” and “Blood and soil.”
The next night, a group of “anti-racists” gathered in response. Mr. Kessler showed up and was surrounded by Antifa, one of whom reportedly spat on him. Police arrested Mr. Kessler on a charge of disorderly conduct, but the prosecutor declined to pursue the case, saying that Mr. Kessler’s actions were free speech.
In the aftermath of this first demonstration, activists began posting “Know your Nazi” flyers around town and encouraging businesses to deny service to Mr. Kessler and his supporters. On one occasion, a mob of about 30 people surrounded Mr. Kessler and his associates at a restaurant.
Preparations for Unite the Right
The Unite the Right rally was born of a determination to stand up to this kind of intimidation. On May 30, Mr. Kessler applied for a permit for a “free speech rally in support of the Lee monument,” to be held August 12 from noon to 5 pm for an estimated crowd of 400 people. Six days later, he publicly announced his plans at a tense City Council meeting. In the course of his brief speech, a number of counter-protesters began shouting “fuck white supremacy” and showing their middle fingers; they had to be physically removed.
Altogether unrelated to plans for Unite the Right, a Klan group from North Carolina applied for a permit to hold a rally in Charlottesville on July 8 to gather around a statue of Stonewall Jackson. Mr. Kessler charged that the leader of this group was an FBI informant “paid by left-wing groups to discredit legitimate conservatives.” About 50 Klan members were met by between 1,500 and 2,000 counter-protesters, including members of SURJ, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and religious organizations. The following month, some “news” outlets broadcast video of the Klan event as footage of the Unite the Right rally.
Police managed to keep the two groups apart, but protestors threw things at the Klansmen as they returned to their cars. The Heaphy Report — an extensive independent review commissioned later by the City of Charlottesville — nevertheless found that local law enforcement’s “training efforts to prepare for the Klan event were fragmented, unfocused and inadequate,” foreshadowing similar failures at Unite the Right. Yet at the time, groups including the ACLU protested what they called a “highly militarized law enforcement presence” and “the outsized and militaristic governmental response” to counter-protesters.
There were complaints that the police were there “only to protect the Klan,” as if 50 people were going to attack a huge crowd of counterdemonstrators. Governor Terry McAuliffe later wrote that the ACLU letter “really had city officials nervous,” and that in the run-up to the larger Unite the Right rally “[t]he mindset for the Charlottesville City Council was to be wary of any strong law enforcement presence.” This was a bad mistake.
As Mrs. Smith notes: “Clashes between right and left-wing groups had been occurring all over the country over the previous year, so the Charlottesville Police Department was able to draw from the knowledge and experience of other jurisdictions for information about what to expect.” The Heaphy Report adds: “Those contacts suggested that the Alt-Right groups were generally cooperative with law enforcement, but also that the opposing groups needed to be physically separated.” Even so, Charlottesville Police Captain Victor Mitchell later acknowledged that “the input from outside jurisdictions was not a factor in planning for August 12th.” The report further found that “Efforts to train police officers ahead of August 12th were meager if not nonexistent . . . . There was no field training of any kind.”
Virginia State Police were somewhat better prepared, but communication between state and city police was poor. As the Heaphy Report found, “No officers were assigned to open areas in which protesters and counter-protesters would interact,” which meant that potentially violent contact was inevitable. Nor were any officers present along the route between the Unite the Right attendees’ shuttle drop-off locations and Lee Park, where most injuries would occur. The report continues:
We spoke to multiple officers at all levels who expressed concern that normal arrest procedures would put officers in harm’s way. In the week before August 12, the Virginia Fusion Center shared credible threats that members of Antifa would bring soda cans filled with cement and might attack police. Then, on the morning of August 12, rumors circulated among CPD [Charlottesville Police Department] that Antifa might attack officers with fentanyl. Out of concern for officer safety, Lieutenant Brian O’Donnell instructed his officers to avoid engaging attendees over “every little thing.” Officer Lisa Best told us that officers “were not going to go in and break up fights” or enter the crowd to make arrests “unless it was something so serious that someone will get killed.” This concern is reflected in our review of body camera footage, which reflects multiple instances of officer uncertainty about potential engagement with the crowd. Rather than engage the crowd and prevent fights, the CPD plan was to declare the event unlawful and disperse the crowd.
In other words, Charlottesville Police never had any intention of defending the constitutional rights of Unite the Right attendees to free speech and assembly. They would let Antifa attack and use the ensuing melee as an excuse to declare an unlawful assembly and stop the rally.
Police tried to talk with counter-protest organizations about safety. According to the Heaphy Report:
Efforts to contact local Charlottesville residents associated with counter-protester groups were met with extreme resistance. Officers attempted to speak with members of Standing Up for Racial Justice and Black Lives Matter, resulting in demands by a local attorney that such contacts cease. As a result, detectives were instructed not to reach out to anyone affiliated with those groups. Officers told us that they were frustrated that their safety-focused information-gathering actions were construed as harassment against vocal members of the community.
“In contrast to the defensive and secretive counter-protester organizations,” notes the report, “representatives of Unite the Right were in open communication with law enforcement in the weeks leading up to the event.” This particularly includes Jason Kessler and two designated security agents. According to the Heaphy Report, “Each told [local police] that he expected a peaceful rally and hoped the police would protect Alt-Right groups from violent counter-protesters.” Mrs. Smith quotes several leaders of groups in attendance who, in view of the large police presence, anticipated a peaceful event. The plan was for ten men (including Mr. Kessler and Mr. Spencer) to speak in defense of the Lee monument and then for everyone to go home.
A number of private militia groups came to Charlottesville in a neutral peace-keeping capacity, despite discouragement from local law enforcement. This turned out to be fortunate; as Mrs. Smith writes, “the militias provided the only semblance of peace-keeping and law enforcement in Charlottesville that day.” They made clear their intention to protect free speech and discourage violence from both sides, and most witnesses, including some police officers, report that they behaved in a fair and responsible way. Yet the City of Charlottesville later filed suit against them. Because some militia members were wearing military style clothing and patriotic emblems, many counter-protesters assumed they were there to support the rally. Some “news” organizations also called the militias “far-right.”
Despite the name Unite the Right, there was a great deal of conflict among the organizers, and a lot of unedifying information came to light during the discovery phase of the many lawsuits that followed. An associate of Mr. Spencer’s named Elliot Kline was maneuvering to commandeer the event by spreading rumors that Mr. Kessler was Jewish and/or insane. Mr. Spencer himself wrote of Mr. Kessler: “After c ville, we need to drop him. He’s just stupid and crazy.” Some parties wanted David Duke to speak and withdrew their support when Mr. Kessler told them no.
Almost at the last minute, city officials became concerned the event would be too large for Lee Park, and tried to move it to McIntire Park, a larger venue a mile away. This created confusion, but the day before the rally, a judge granted Mr. Kessler’s motion for a preliminary injunction against the move.
Unite the Right rallygoers and their motives
One valuable chapter in Charlottesville Untold is based on interviews with a cross-section of 10 rallygoers. As the author writes: “These people have been accused by the most powerful voices in the nation of being ‘Nazis’ and every other despicable name imaginable. None of them have ever been offered a platform to refute these accusations and tell their own version of the story.” Here are some of their stories.
Luke is a graduate of Virginia Military Institute who had visited Charlottesville as a child and seen it gradually fill up with non-Virginians and radical liberals who “hate everything about the city, about the state, and about our history.” He learned that Unite the Right had protest permits, and he had faith the Virginia State Police would keep control. He had an old photograph of his grandmother with his great uncle in his WWII uniform in front of the Stonewall Jackson statue in Charlottesville. He kept it in his pocket throughout the rally to remind him why he was there. When things got heated and he thought about leaving, he remembered the photo and resolved to stay.
Steve grew up in a typical Republican but not very political family in Charlottesville and was disturbed when he heard about efforts to remove the Lee statue. “I grew up with that statue. I didn’t want them to tear it down . . . . The philosophy behind ‘Unite the Right’ made sense to me – Let’s get all hands on deck. No matter what ideological differences we may have, we all oppose the leftist assault on our identity. I think we all knew it was an assault on White people in general.”
Tom grew up in East Tennessee and was active in local government from an early age, where he found that traditional views like his were often ridiculed. Hearing of Unite the Right, he expected “we would picket and get our side heard.” He thought that since the rally was permitted, it would be safe. One friend offered him a shield to take along, and another offered a helmet, but Tom declined both, believing “ain’t nothing gonna happen.”
Chris, a young man from Appalachia, considered himself a political moderate and a Trump Republican. Hearing about Unite the Right on Facebook before the page was taken down, he expected the rally to be attended largely by others like himself, with a focus on defending the Lee statue.
Nathaniel grew up in Delaware, a conservative who had soured on the Republican Party for its failure to follow up on its promises. Gradually learning more about the Civil War, he came to respect and sympathize with the Southern cause. He thought the rally “seemed like it was going to be a lot of fun,” and he hoped to meet some online acquaintances. He knew the organizers had been working with law enforcement, so he expected both sides of the conflict to be kept apart. On the drive to Charlottesville, he listened to the audio version of a biography of Robert E. Lee.
Jim was born in New York to an Irish immigrant family. His political views began to change when he became disgusted with media coverage of the Michael Brown riots, and later by the attack on all things Southern following the Dylan Roof murders. When Jim saw how rioters were celebrated as heroes while Southerners were vilified, “It got my Irish up.” He joined the League of the South and went to Charlottesville expecting to defend the constitution and the monument of the “great man” Robert E. Lee, and then go home.
Bill, an oilman who had lived all over the South, had been a yellow-dog Democrat most of his life, but when people in New Orleans began pushing to remove monuments and rename parks, he joined a group dedicated to preserving them. In the course of this fight, Mr. Kessler and some of his associates had supported him. He decided to go to Unite the Right to reciprocate, because “those boys had helped me out.”
Gene grew up in a traditional Southern family in Nashville. He had done enough reading to know that the things the television said about the South and the Civil War were biased. Gene knew antifa would be at Unite the Right, and he expected hostility and shouting, but not violence. He hoped to tour Monticello after the rally.
Ayla Stewart, known online as Wife with a Purpose, was given the middle name “Lee” at birth in keeping with a family tradition of honoring the Confederate general. Bearing his name brought her derision in some parts of the country, so she often had to defend Lee’s honor. “I felt completely safe rallying behind this,” she explains. “This is erasing our history based on wrong information.”
The evening before
On August 11, the eve of the publicly announced rally, a group of rallygoers gathered for a torchlight procession from an athletic field on the University of Virginia campus to the UVA statue of Thomas Jefferson. Mr. Kessler explained that the Jefferson statue was chosen to make the point that not only Confederate symbols were under threat. Unlike the next day’s rally, there was no permit for this procession, which was planned in secret so as not to give counter-protesters time to organize. However, word leaked out and about 20 counter-protesters gathered at the Jefferson statue beforehand. Around 5:00 pm, organizers discovered the leak and informed local police. Some groups withdrew from the procession out of safety concerns, but about 300 people marched in orderly fashion, reaching the Jefferson statue around 10:20 PM.
Mrs. Smith writes:
Certainly, there were peaceful college students among the counter-protesters. However, what is omitted from most reporting is the small but vicious group of Antifa who antagonized marchers with pepper spray and other weapons. For example, one video captures an unidentified Antifa lighting and throwing a Molotov cocktail into a crowd. Studying video of the event, researchers have identified a number of known Antifa, some with serious criminal records, who were among the counter-protesters that evening.
After fighting broke out, local police called for support, but by the time it arrived, the fighting was over and marchers were dispersing. Both marchers and counter-protesters spoke with disgust about the passivity of the police. Black celebrity academic Cornell West marveled: “We were there to get arrested. We couldn’t even get arrested, because the police had pulled back, just allowing fellow citizens to go at each other.”
Many “news” outlets portrayed the counter-protesters as innocent victims of a “Nazi” attack. The author comments:
Unite the Right organizers had planned the torchlight march in secret for the explicit purpose of avoiding conflict, then voluntarily informed the police of their plans after learning counter-protesters would be present. Are those the actions of people with malevolent intentions?
As at Mr. Spencer’s torchlit procession in May, participators chanted “you will not replace us,” but on this occasion some changed the words to “Jews will not replace us.” Mr. Kessler recalls:
I remember being mortified when it happened . . . . They have essentially hijacked the message. You always want to be seen as righteous defenders of your own people rather than as aggressors looking to attack other people’s cultures.
Many marchers returned to their cars to find windows broken and tires slashed.
The hour arrives
By 8:45 the next morning, hundreds of attendees had gathered in the parking lot of McIntire Park. Shuttles were to take them to Lee Park about a mile and a half away. However, Charlottesville police ordered drivers to drop off attendees not at Lee Park as planned, but several blocks away. The reason for this decision is not known, but is the subject of a Freedom of Information request.
The result was that many demonstrators arrived on the wrong side of the park and had to walk around to the other side through streets full of hostile counter-protesters. Some were blocked by a group of clergymen standing arm-in-arm. These men of the cloth were saying such things as “I hope you get fucked to death” and “God hates you.” Some spat on attendees. By obstructing entry to Lee Park, they left these attendees vulnerable to Antifa attacks; as the author points out, this may have been their intention. A group of 60 attendees eventually pushed through the line of clergy. Police observed without intervening.
A group of about 100 attendees decided not to participate in the shuttle plan, fearing that small groups would be more vulnerable to attack. Instead, they marched from the Market St. parking garage to Lee Park. One participant recalls: “Pretty immediately I realized there was no police cover. I realized there was going to be a fight. We were getting attacked from all sides.” Even women were punched, and some elderly attendees were targeted with pepper spray. Counter-protesters threw bricks, bottles of urine, and bags of feces.
Fortunately, some attendees in this group, fearing violence, had come equipped with defensive gear such as shields, helmets and eye protection. The League of the South in particular was, in Pres. Michael Hill’s words, “ready to defend ourselves and our property but not to carry out any aggressive/offensive actions.” They headed the procession and, as they approached Lee Park, ran straight into Antifa. As attendee Matt Parrott remarked to the author, “a formation that large cannot just reverse — the people in the front were being pushed ahead by those in the back who could not see what was happening.” So a melee ensued between the generally burly League of the South members and Antifa, after which the procession was able to enter Lee Park. One witness told the folks in the rear:
Wish y’all could’ve seen that clash out here a minute ago . . . it was pretty brutal. They ran into each other like Barbarians on a battlefield with their shields, riot shields and sticks and billy clubs, just beating on each other. Probably lasted about 30 seconds, 45 seconds.
Once again, local police watched and did nothing. A League of the South shield wall was later of critical importance in protecting attendees inside Lee Park from the mob outside. An attendee remarked: “it was precisely the group most stigmatized by the MSM, the armored Alt-Righters with shields, who created what order existed.” Many of the neutral militia members also did good service protecting the innocent that day. One left-wing organizer confirmed that rally attendees bore the brunt of the violence: “From what I observed from my street, it was mostly Nazis that were getting beaten at that point.”
A witness told this reviewer that about 1,000 attendees had gathered in Lee Park by 11:00 am, and estimated final attendance might have been as high as 2,000 if the event had been secured, but strictly speaking, the Unite the Right rally never took place. The scheduled start time was noon, but the gathering was declared an unlawful assembly at 11:31 AM. By 11:49, Virginia State Police in riot gear began moving into the park to push anyone who had not yet dispersed. None of the scheduled speakers ever said a word.
Some attendees were pushed by police off the top of a four-foot wall. One was told: “Get the hell out of here. We’re not gonna clear a path for you.” All were forced to exit directly into a mob of hostile counter-protesters armed with mace, bear spray, slingshots and urine-filled balloons. One black counter-protester improvised a flame-thrower with a can of hairspray.
Several participants told their story on the Memphis-based Political Cesspool radio show that night. A caller named Darren said: “The police were clearly on the side of the enemy. They attacked us. They were not on the side of law and order. It was planned, obviously, by the city government. The police attacked us with pepper spray.” A guest of the program named Mike told this harrowing story:
I was part of a group of five people who got cut off from the rest of our entourage by the police shield wall. They kept pushing us forward toward the Antifa. I tell them ‘What are you doing? There are five of us, and there was at least 200 of [the Antifa] standing over here.’ Two of the guys tried to dive down to get past the police, and one of them got rewarded for it with a hit in the back with a baton loud enough that I was able to hear it from six feet away. They were both coated in mace. I got coated in mace. I turned around. I had a shield, I told them to follow me, we were going to try to force our way through the Antifa, and one of the police officers nailed me in the back with his shield, tried to knock me down the steps and two of the other guys tumbled right beside me . . . . They intended us to fall. So finally we got up and made our way around. We were pressed up against a wall by I don’t know how many of them, one of the guys took a blow to the head, he had blood pouring down the side of his face from it.
One attendee reported it took him 15 minutes to get to Lee Park, but two hours to return to his vehicle. Many got lost in the unfamiliar streets, and some accidently wandered into the city’s hostile black ghetto. Antifa absurdly imagined they were there to attack residents.
A writer for the Daily Caller noted: “The State of Emergency order meant that any public gathering was de facto illegal, but Antifa were still allowed to roam freely bearing weapons and attacking people.” A caller to the Political Cesspool recounted, “After we were driven out of the park, the people who had the permit – guess what? One of our people came back 30 minutes after we were driven out of the park and the Antifa were still there. They were lounging around like having a holiday.”
A neutral observer recalls: “I saw a bunch of nasty shit. People fighting each other like they weren’t human. They were going for faces and putting each other in choke holds. I’m surprised there weren’t more deaths and serious injuries.” An emergency medical worker remembers: “People would come in soaked with pepper spray from the tops of their heads to the bottom of their feet. The only way to deal with that was to have them disrobe, fully hose them down, and send them out in a Tyvek suit with their clothes in a plastic bag.”
Some remarked on how well the counter-protesters seemed to be prepared. Charlottesville native Hannah Zarski said “The organization for Unite the Right was so far beyond anything that could have been arranged here. It was very well coordinated.” She points out that many Antifa were carrying professionally printed signs mounted on thick wooden dowels. “Those things are not cheap.” There are many unanswered questions about their funding and preparations.
An organizer for left-wing groups that day acknowledges that the Alt-Right were not the aggressors: “It was during this dispersal that some of the more violent hand-to-hand clashes happened and as groups of Nazis were leaving the area, and Charlottesville residents alongside Anti-fascists from all over the US demonstrated to them that they were not welcome. They were chased up to the parking lots, they were chased down towards McIntire.”
One rallygoer ran into an old schoolmate who was there with the counter-protesters. They:
ducked into a nearby bar for shelter where he found himself in a group with her friends. He was dressed neutrally and they didn’t recognize him as a Unite the Right attendee. They seemed to be hyped up on adrenaline. His impression was that they were excited and happy about the chaos and riots. “They were getting what they wanted.”
Among the authorities’ most consequential failings that day was inadequate traffic control in the downtown area. Tammy Shiflett was a “school resource officer” assigned to the corner of Market Street and 4th Street NE. Her only instructions were that she would be “doing traffic.” After the unlawful assembly order was called, Miss Shifflett found herself standing alone, with no protective gear, as Unite the Right attendees streamed past her away from the park. The Heaphy Report explains:
She felt she was in danger. As people started to pass, they made profane and aggressive statements toward her. She smelled pepper spray in the air. Shiflett radioed Captain Lewis and said, “They are pushing the crowd my way, and I have nobody here to help me.”
She was allowed to leave, but, as the Heaphy Report notes, no one “notified the traffic commander or the Command Center that she was no longer at her assigned post at 4th Street NE and Market Street. As a result, all that remained there was a wooden sawhorse barricade.”
This explains why no police were present when James Fields rammed his car into a group of protesters at that very corner an hour or so later at about 1:45 PM, killing counter-protester Heather Heyer and seriously injuring many others. The Heaphy Report praised the Charlottesville Fire Department and University of Virginia health system for handling this emergency but noted, “This prompt, effective response represents a bright success on a day largely filled with failure.”
Part II of this review will cover press coverage, Donald Trump’s statements, deplatforming and doxing campaigns, and the criminal and civil suits that followed the rally.
On a long trawl through Youtube out of boredom, I came across a video from HBomberGuy, titled “Vaccines: A Measured Response.” I usually watch him because he has decent takes on current events, but the messaging at the end of the video I think hits home in the realm of “radical politics:”
There is another way the truth can change people’s minds; Living Proof. If someone thinks the Coronavirus vaccines might be dangerous, one of the best ways to help seems to be people around them getting it and showing them how it’s fine.
The truth is, it was easy in 2020 to have your doubts about a theoretical vaccine that no one had had yet, but now when half the people around you already have it and they’re obviously fine, it’s a whole lot harder to have those doubts.
if there are people in your life who could be at risk who need convincing of the vaccine’s safety, you could be the evidence they need.
You can read this at face value as a message on vaccine safety and how people tend to change their minds when they see no significant risk with being vaccinated, but I feel this can extend further into other topics – in particular, anarchism in practice.
Living proof can be analysed within the scope of other modes of anarchist praxis.
To put it mildly, what is considered “effective praxis” within anarchist circles is highly variable and contentious, from attempts to incite revolution (or more realistically, “preparing” it to happen) to attempts to use electoral politics to gain some form of temporary relief via “lesser evil” selection of candidates. Both modes of “praxis” inevitably fall flat, as often seen in a historical context.
For revolution, we have seen multiple instances where revolution fails, often for two major reasons. The first is the presence of a large state opposition, as seen in the French Revolution (1848) and the Spanish Civil war. The second major reason is the presence of other ideological cliques within the revolution who are “on the same side,” but eventually undermine and destroy anarchist groups to uphold their own cliques. This has been seen in most “communist” revolutions, but is most clearly observed in Russia during the October revolution and Kronstadt rebellion, along with Soviet “aid” in the Spanish civil war.
For electoral politics, the failure of voting within a democratic system for change is ubiquitous. This is most clear within the context of a common argument for said voting: a shift to a “lesser evil” to produce “better conditions for change.” This was a common argument for voting Democratic (for Biden) in the most recent US election. While certainly having some benefits in terms of health (vaccine rollouts for example), it leaves much to be desired. For one, each state has enough autonomy to make their own decisions. These decisions can contradict what the federal rulings are. Biden can roar about needing vaccines and to wear masks, but that doesn’t stop a state governor from having their own agenda; the president is both too powerful and able to make sweeping changes, but also too weak to change what state governments do of their own accord. While this could mean that certain states are less authoritarian in their implementation of policies, it can also mean the exact opposite.
A common argument among anarchists who are in favour of electoral politics as a means of change is that voting has brought about several changes that make things “more bearable” than they otherwise would be. Is this not “change in the now,” the very thing I am talking about with the concept of “Living Proof?”
No, because the voting isn’t what made those changes: groups of individuals did.
You didn’t get 8 hour work days in the US because people voted for it: you needed the spark of insurrection and individual autonomy seen in the Haymarket riot. You didn’t get further emancipation for African Americans because people voted for it: you needed the spark of insurrection and individual autonomy seen by the Holy Week Uprising, the 1992 LA Riots, and the George Floyd protests, to list just a few. You didn’t obtain greater support and autonomy for LGBT+ people through voting: it needed the spark of insurrection and individual autonomy seen in the Stonewall riots.
This is what Living Proof entails: change doesn’t occur simply through the ballot – this ballot never would have been set up if not for the actions of individuals fighting for what they believe in. No attention would have been given to what could change if people never made it known things could be better. And at the end of the day, even actions for change at the local level as seen in Haymarket and Stonewall can evolve into something more significant, sparking chain reactions in people who see that they can ask for more, they can do more, they can be more.
The localism tied to these actions means the goal set before you isn’t gargantuan, something that I see as a major issue within the ideals of revolution and electoral politics. It isn’t about trying to create an uprising to overthrow an entire state to somehow “create” anarchism within that region, nor about waiting every election season to vote in the ”less evil” person. Volunteering, providing food for the homeless, and providing safe spaces for the shunned and forgotten – to give but a few possible examples of localist praxis – are activities you can do now.
If any message can be taken away from the above, it is that change doesn’t need to start as the loud roar of revolution, nor end as a whimper as seen in electoral politics: can be here, and it can be now. And in many ways, anarchist interactions are already here. People reciprocate all the time without use of a state, people trade without the use of a state, people create value without use of a state, people love and multiply without use of the state, so on and so forth.
The state only acts to create a dependency on their facilities that they clamp upon through force, and ultimately perpetuate their own existence. They do not make you free, nor do they protect you. Freedom must be taken, and we must protect each other. And to do that, we need to start with ourselves, and need to prove that this is possible without the state as it is always: we need to be Living Proof of anarchism.

A hit piece was published this morning in the Washington Post and Newsweek based on a “report” published by the ADL. The report highlights how people post Gab links on Twitter that the ADL doesn’t like.
Twitter is so low on our referral source traffic list that it doesn’t even register in our top 15 sources of traffic. Yet that’s what the ADL targeted because they have no power anywhere else. 95% of our traffic is direct, meaning we don’t depend on Google, Twitter, Facebook, or anyone else. People come directly to Gab.
The ADL is an anti-Christ, Anti-American, and Anti-White hate organization. They should be registered as a foreign agent under Foreign Agents Registration Act for their operation in the United States on behalf of foreign interests in Israel.
The ADL is a Jewish organization that serves the interests of Jews and of Israel. Stating this fact isn’t even remotely controversial nor is it “hateful.” In fact the ADL openly boasts about these facts, but because a Christian man dares to say these things out loud the ADL cries “anti-Semitism!”
Remember the time I responded to the ADL with “Jesus is King” and they called it “thinly veiled antisemitism?” If you believe Jesus is King, as I do, the ADL will call you an “anti-semite.” Who cares? Let them. Their shame words only have power if you let them. Don’t apologize for anything. Double down.
I often wonder if this repeated pattern of the ADL smearing and attacking good Christian people as “anti-semitic” is a result of their profound Christophobia or if it’s just merely an expression of their Jewish privilege.
The ADL can call me and Gab whatever shame words they want, but they can’t say I’m wrong. The real problem for them here is that I don’t answer to the ADL. I answer only to the King of Kings my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Period. They hate Him first, and therefore they hate me too as He said they would. (John 15:18)
The ADL can try and pressure Twitter to censor Gab all they want, but they will never stop the signal of the 20 million people and growing who are using Gab’s services each and every month. Gab will never bend the knee to hateful extremist organizations like the ADL.
In the United States of America people have a God-given right to speak freely, to exercise religious liberty, and to protect their bodily autonomy. Reminding people of these rights is not “misinformation.”
If the ADL doesn’t like the rights we have in America, a Christian nation, then perhaps they should move to Israel which is one of the most vaccinated countries on earth and a noted covid hot spot.
Finally, the January 6th Capitol Riot hoax has been widely debunked including by the FBI who found “scant evidence that the Jan. 6 event at the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.”
The ADL and anyone else who demands that Gab censor legally-protected political speech on the internet can go pound sand.
Jesus Christ is King

“REBELLION BECOMES DUTY“
Cops in Switzerland rise up against government-imposed restrictions
Police in Switzerland are rising up against the “Great Reset” by refusing to enforce government-imposed restrictions on the general public.
A group representing Swiss police officers wrote a letter to the Swiss Federation of Police Officers (FSFP) declaring that cops work for the people and not the global elite.
The group warned they will not enforce restrictive measures that disproportionately undermine the fundamental rights of citizens.
“If the measures were to conflict with the general opinion of the population, disproportionately limiting their fundamental rights, many police officers would no longer be willing to apply them,” the group wrote in the letter.
While the letter was received favorably by the Swiss public, the FSFP attempted to downplay the uprising by claiming it only represents a small number of police officers.Adrian Gaugler of the Conference of Cantonal Police Commanders went further, threatening the officers with sanctions if they refused to enforce the measures.
An officer who refuses to enforce the law can be punished,” said Gaugler.
“Police refusing to enforce coronavirus measures is not unique to Switzerland,” writes Chris Tomlinson.
“Earlier this year, police in the Canadian province of Ontario rejected new powers given by the provincial government that would have allowed them to stop any motorist or pedestrian and demand to know where they live and why they were not at home.”
It’s not just in Europe where restrictive measures are being rejected, however.
Lawmakers in the United States are now also calling on the public to demand freedom.
As Neon Nettle first reported last week, Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has released a statement calling on patriotic Americans to rise up against Joe Biden’s tyrannical government to “resist” the “Great Reset” through mass civil disobedience.
Senator Paul has called on the public to stand up against unconstitutional lockdowns, mandates, and harmful policies being imposed by “power-hungry” elites.
In an op-ed for Fox News, Paul slammed Democrat leaders Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “tyrants“.
“They can’t arrest us all,” Paul declared as he urged patriots to “resist” the Democrats’ attempts to “destroy America.”
“We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads,” Paul declared.
“Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children?
“Or will we stand together and say, absolutely not.”
Not this time.
“I choose freedom.”

At some point, there will be a revolt. The longer the arbitrary insanity persists, the more violent the reaction will be.
The most cheerful headline I have seen in weeks was on Glenn Reynolds’ New York Post column: “No, Karen, we’re not masking again.” I hope he is right. I do wonder, though. I have no doubt that the second part of his headline—“A winning GOP message for 2022 [and] beyond”—is correct. At least it’s correct if it is expressed as a conditional: It would be a winning strategy were it adopted. As Reynolds notes, “There is a great deal of pent-up frustration and resentment over the inconvenience, the loss of freedom and the general climate of hectoring that the government’s pandemic response has created.” Indeed. And he’s right, too, that
It’s irritating to be lectured by officials who claim to be smarter than you. It’s infuriating to be lectured by government officials who claim to be smarter than you—but clearly aren’t.
The on-again/off-again claims on masks and vaccination are just part of it. Tired of masks? Get vaccinated, they told us. Now they’re saying wear a mask, even if you’ve been vaccinated and even if you’re associating with others who’ve been vaccinated.
And there’s talk of more lockdowns, which a growing body of scientific evidence suggests were perfectly useless and downright harmful.
As Molly Bloom exclaimed in a different context, Yes, Yes, Yes!
But to return to the question of hope, I am reminded that hope was said by some cynics to have been the last evil in Pandora’s pithos. It seems like only yesterday—in fact, it was just this past May—that both the president and the vice-president of the United States insisted that (as Joe himself put it) “Folks, if you’re fully vaccinated—you no longer need to wear a mask.”
Of course, that was more than a year after “15 days to slow the spread,” Anthony Fauci’s steady stream of contradictory, though authoritatively delivered, advice, not to mention the recent advent of (cue the scary music) The Delta Variant.
It was the New York Post, again, that cut to the chase on the latest (unless we’re on to the epsilon variant already) with its cover of July 30. “Insanity!” read its oversized headline and below was a large grid with a tiny bit of the upper right square marked. Of the 161 million people who have been vaccinated, only 5,601 have been hospitalized with the new version of the virus. Of those, only 1,141 have died. That’s .0007 percent. (And how old, one wonders, were those who succumbed and from what comorbidities did they suffer?)
Now it turns out that the latest CDC advice was based largely on an outbreak at Provincetown after the informal party time of “Bear Week” in early July. Andrew Sullivan treated the news with some portion of the skepticism it deserves. In fact, as another commentator pointed out, what the Provincetown outbreak really shows is that “even under perfect conditions for a superspreader event, the vaccine works spectacularly well.”
But even to talk about studies and statistics and “expert” advice is to assume that we are talking primarily about an issue of public health. We aren’t. Consider this list from Jim Treacher:
- Absolutely do not wear a mask
- You must, must, must wear a mask or you’re killing Grandma
- Don’t leave the house or you’re killing Grandma
- If you can’t avoid leaving the house, stay at least six feet away from any other human being you see or you’re killing Grandma
- Wash your hands 20 times a day
- Do not touch your face or anything else, ever
- Get vaccinated so you don’t have to wear a mask
- You have to wear a mask even if you’re vaccinated
- When the above rules change, and then change back, and then change back again, shut up about it or you’re a stupid MAGA-head
- Don’t forget to vote Democrat!
Of course, the last item is more often left unspoken than it is overtly expressed, but it is a sentiment, an assumption, that infuses the whole shifting kaleidoscope of contradictory advice. Treacher is right. “This isn’t about science. It’s about control. You will do as you’re told, peasants, and your moral, ethical and intellectual betters will continue to do whatever they please.”
I think Glenn Reynolds is correct that opposing the tyrannous spirit that stands behind the lockdowns, the mask mandates, and the smug, hectoring, politically correct demands for proof of vaccination would be a winning strategy for GOP politicians. Will they adopt it? Most will do so timorously, if at all. That’s my prediction.
Last year at Encounter Books, we published an admonitory book by Joel Kotkin called The Coming of Neo-Feudalism: A Warning To The Global Middle Class. Some people thought Kotkin was overstating things with his talk of an increasingly stratified society in which a tiny elite lorded it over an increasingly pauperized and disenfranchised mass. It turns out, though, that if anything Kotkin understated the trends. The weaponization of public health diktats, their enforcement by a vast and increasingly overbearing cadre of nanny-state bureaucrats, is simply the latest manifestation of the profoundly anti-democratic spirit that has taken hold in Western societies.
It’s all about social control, as Jim Treacher says. At some point, there will be a revolt. The longer the arbitrary insanity persists, the more violent the reaction will be. The question is whether we are at or are approaching the point of crisis. Will the voters stand for another lockdown as we approach the 2022 election? Lockdowns markedly increased the opportunities for voter fraud; 2020 showed that. That is precisely why the swamp is prepping us for another go. Let’s see if we stand by grumbling impotently or if, finally, we actually do something. I am not holding my breath.
