Recent riots in Berkeley and DC have drawn attention to the Left-wing terror group Antifa, an organization which has a violent history in Europe and South America but has been largely unknown in the United States until very recently. They’re the ones responsible for Trump supporters being beaten by gangs of masked men, setting fire to cars, pepper spraying old men, pelting women with eggs and smashing in Starbucks windows and ATMs. The term Antifa, short for anti-fascist, is a euphemism for Communism. It is a reference to the bitter and bloody feud between the National Socialists and Communists in 1930s Germany. The groups compromising Antifa consider the many people across the country who voted Trump into office to be “literally Nazis” and so deserving of a revolutionary communist response.
Many of these agitators would also consider themselves anarchists, which may seem incompatible with the big government state control of Communism. In large groups you’ll often see them waving the red and black flag of anarcho-communism. The way it’s supposed to work is that they theoretically want to overthrow the government and implement common ownership of the means of production. This is all very silly because a) Antifa is mostly populated by upper middle snowflakes too soft to actually overthrow the government and b) if you abolished the state, a foreign government or military power like ISIS would swoop in. The ensuing gang rape and mass murder would rival the most bone-chilling acts of cruelty in all of human history: the military conquests of Genghis Khan, the horrors of the Inquisition and the Rape of Berlin all rolled into one.
While there are thousands of smaller extremist groups around the country with many different names (SURJ, ANSWER, WWP, etc) when they come together in a mass demonstration or riot they are effectively Antifa. Some of them may refer to themselves as Black Bloc, although technically black bloc is a tactic not an organization. It refers to agitators dressing all in black, wearing masks or scarves over their faces and marching together in hordes. The reason that they do this is to make it hard to identify any particular member who has done some illegal activity like breaking a window, starting a fire, stealing a camera, or pepper spraying an innocent victim. The Antifa website Crimethinc explains that, “acting in a Bloc is especially useful when some of the participants in the action expect they may break law” and that, “When everyone in a group looks the same, it is difficult for the police or others to tell who did what. Most criminal activities are better carried off in a less obvious manner, of course, but there are situations in which it is necessary to step outside the limits in public.”
Many of their tactics are passed on orally or through zines like ‘Repress This’, ‘Whatever you do, don’t talk to the police’, ‘The Invention of the White Race’, ‘Our Enemies in Blue’ and ‘Gender Fascists’.
-Stop light method: Antifa/black bloc terrorists are given a color designation of red, yellow or green. Reds are willing to do illegal shit. Yellows aren’t but they work to disguise the reds, blocking police or anyone else who would try to apprehend the criminal. Greens are basic, low information people who just showed up and aren’t really in on the tactics. When a red commits an illegal act he will run into a crowd of green to disappear before the police can identify him.
-Swarming: after an act of violence, vandalism or theft has been perpetrated on a victim by a red, the yellows will surround the victim blocking view of their attacker. Then they will between screaming and shoving signs in the victim’s the face until the attacker has made their getaway. The effect is to create an immediate feeling of confusion and disorientation in the victim.
-Violence: they will use violence whenever they see a clear opportunity to do so and get away with it. Violent acts rarely happen alone. When they see on of their own start to attack other will join in until it becomes a mob beatdown. While they tend to shy away from gun Antifa have been known to stick knives in people’s ribs.
Although these groups are predominantly white they are pathologically sensitive to racial issues. A March 2nd speaking engagement by author Charles Murray in Middlebury, Vermont turned violent when Antifa attacked a professor in attendance. Professor Allison Stranger describes the experience, “One thug grabbed me by the hair and another shoved me in a different direction. I noticed signs with expletives and my name on them.” Her crime was inviting Murray to the school for a civic discussion of his research. In 1994 Charles Murray wrote The Bell Curve, a successful and controversial book which tried to explain the persistence of racial differences in IQ.
To Antifa even acknowledging data which conflicts with their worldview is heresy. They’ve adopted cult-like pseudo-religious views of race, gender and religion which require a simplistic and dogmatic belief that all people are the same: there is no biological basis of race, of gender and that every foreign culture is inherently nobler than the one they grew up in.
This leads us to another tactic which is adopted more and more by even mainstream Leftists:
-Deplatforming: denying the free speech rights of groups or individuals through use of bullhorns, airhorns, screaming, putting up human walls to block people from attending lectures, pulling fire alarms and all manner of other underhanded tactics. The intention is drown out a speaker the Communists consider part of the “white male patriarchy”.
According to Lee Stranahan of Breitbart, the rumors of Soros funding are largely overstated. “While it’s been proven that funders like Soros and the Democrat party have paid protest organizers and some protesters,” he writes, “groups like the violent Black Bloc typically aren’t motivated by money, but instead come to protests because of their anti-American ideology, base criminal desires and thrill seeking.”
Nevertheless when you see these groups carrying professionally made signs it’s likely that they are receiving outside funding from establishment types. It’s instructive to show how money from globalist billionaires like George Soros and Tom Steyer trickle down to the Antifa foot soldiers in many major demonstrations. Soros and Steyer donate to Media Matters, a left-wing group that operated Hillary Clinton’s notorious online propaganda arm Correct the Record. Media Matters in turn funds groups like ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) which share top officials with the Antifa group WPP (Workers World Party) including Brian Becker, Sara Flounders, Teresa Gutierrez, Larry Holmes, and Sarah Sloan. This is typical of the way top-down billionaire funder to terrorist foot soldier hierarchy works, with several degrees of separation and plausible deniability.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, veiled in a robe of unquestionable authority and sanctimony by the mainstream establishment, is a cancer upon our nation. Known for its infamous list of so-called “hate groups” they are themselves bullies, harassers, and intimidators of citizens expressing their free speech rights. Never has this been brought into starker relief than in the Douglasville 15 case, in which the SPLC convinced a judge to sentence Confederate aficionados to decades behind bars for WORDS. This was a case in which police originally “didn’t have evidence either way”. This was before the SPLC hate group intervened to persecute the Douglasville 15 for supporting their heritage while white.
First, let’s establish who the SPLC is for those who may be unclear. It’s a legal aid nonprofit founded in 1971 by Joseph Levin. The first president was former UVA emeritus Julian Bond. The SPLC made its reputation collecting scalps of some legitimate white supremacist groups like the White Klans of America and the White Aryan Resistance. They established their greatest claim to fame creating a list of “hate groups” which they defined as having “beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics."
This was all decades ago. As time went on and legitimate violent racism decreased in our country, SPLC slowly began to expand its definition of what a “white supremacist” and a “hate group” was. Just like other liberal movements they won the culture war. But rather than congratulate themselves on a job well done and move on to other endeavors they used respect they’d garnered pushing back against the Klan to begin persecuting mainstream conservatives and advocating for ever more dubious causes like illegal immigration and transgenderism.
SPLC has used the media’s reverence for their “hate group” list to blackmail and smear both mainstream conservatives and nonviolent identitarians who, like it or not, are only as focused on race as the NAACP or the SPLC itself. The SPLC extremist list is composed of almost entirely white groups and Christian groups with a random Black Nationalist group thrown in just to feign impartiality. Black Lives Matter is not on the list, although they should be since they are a racist group that is responsible for actual rioting and violence. Mainstream conservatives like Ben Carson and Donald Trump are listed on the SPLC site. So are beloved conservative media icons like Breitbart, Rush Limbaugh, Mike Cernovich and Paul Joseph Watson. Today’s SPLC is pretty much just a left-wing smear racket meant to intimidate conservatives into silence.
This finally brings us to the Douglasville 15 case where SPLC truly jumped the shark into becoming a left-wing, anti-white hate group. The incident took place in the days following the hysteria of the Dylan Roof shooting at a black church in South Carolina. Because Dylan Roof, acting alone, had claimed southern identity by associating himself with the confederate flag, anti-speech forces were clamping down on displays of Confederate flags across the nation. SC governor Nikki Haley had the Confederate flag removed from the grounds of the state capital. It was in this context that a heritage group called Respect the Flag got together in a small truck convoy waving Confederate, American and Gadsden (“Don’t Tread on Me”) flags. By some accounts there was some drinking and rowdiness involved.
There are so many unknowns in the actual incident that it’s hard to describe it impartially. There is no video of the ACTUAL incident, just a bunch of hearsay. Therefore it leaves it up to the eye of the beholder what actually happened (in this case Judge William McClain, a white man seeking re-election against a black candidate in a heavily black district). In any case, the truck convoy was riding past a home where black people were celebrating a child’s birthday party on their front lawn. The Confederate side claims that the blacks threw a rock at one of the trucks; it swerved and popped a tire on the curb. The birthday party group say that the convoy stopped out of the blue to purposely harass them. There was also a claim that someone pulled a gun. The Confederate group does acknowledge this but claims it was because they felt threatened by the rock-throwing. Essentially all of this is hearsay. It’s likely you just had two groups, in a window of heightened racial tension, who’d both been drinking and talking smack to one another.
The only publicly released video of the incident depicts a time after the police had already arrived on the scene and the Respect the Flag Convoy is leaving the premises. A number of angry black people are in the foreground of the video cursing and talking smack to the Confederates. Something inaudible is heard coming from one of the trucks and one of the black women who’d been smack-talking starts screeching, “That was a threat! That was a threat!” to police officers who don’t appear to have taken it as such. It comes across less like the woman felt genuinely threatened and more like she inflamed tensions to the point that someone talked shit back to her in the heat of the moment.
In any case, the incident was over and done with. Police separated the two groups without any violent escalation and no arrests were made. Enter the SPLC with their national prestige and team of lawyers. Without submitting any actual evidence of the incident itself, which I would speculate does not put either side in a flattering light, sicked their team of lawyers on the case; coaching the vindictive black lady to decry how the drunken argument had “affected the rest of her life”. The SPLC wasn’t just looking to get any old charge. They sought dubious gang charges based on the fact that the improvised group waved Confederate flags and made "terroristic threats". Obviously drunken smack talk was not what legislators had in mind when they drafted terroristic threat laws. Using their overinflated political capital, SPLC managed to actually get a number of these people convicted for decades in prison. Kayla Rae Norton, 25 was sentenced to 15 years and Jose Ismael Torres, 26, was sentenced to 20.
Let’s be clear: SPLC targeted the Respect the Flag Group because they were white and promoting their Southern American identity. At the same time SPLC promotes and has an incestuous relationship with other identity groups like the NAACP. SPLC used their political influence and knowledge of the legal system to persecute these individuals for their race and southern identity. What happened in Douglasville is not just a continuation of “civil rights” but an open declaration of war against Middle America. There is a double standard which exists in America where peaceful European-American movements are stigmatized while organizations like SPLC representing other identity groups are lifted up into the highest corridors of power. This verdict was a vindictive and manipulative slap across the face to the men and women who rose up against this tyrannical political correctness in November 2016. This was an open declaration of war by SPLC and the Left that they intend to vindictively manipulate the legal system as a tool for persecution because they are angry about the result of the 2016 election. The question is: what are you going to do about it? We have to openly call out the SPLC at every opportunity; fight for justice to those persecuted by the legal system and let our country know that we no longer respect the authority of SPLC to define who is a hate group when they themselves should be on the list.
