Antifa v. Alt-Right in Charlottesville — and America

Mark Alexander of The Patriot Post writes about the hypocrisy of the Dems, Leftist MSM, and RINOs reporting on the Charlottesville rumble. It’s a great follow-up on my post “Charlottesville Violent Participants Pt ONE”.

Antifa v. Alt-Right in Charlottesville — and America
The coming battles between sociopathic Leftists — the socialist "anti-fascists" and the "alternate-right" anarchists.

“It is the manners and spirit of a people, which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.” —Thomas Jefferson (1787)


Last weekend, according to NBC Chicago, there were nine people killed and more than 30 wounded in gunfights on the streets of Chicago — and those figures don’t include the deaths and injuries from other weapons within that Democrat Party pit.

This is a recurring tragedy in Chicago, and yet it’s highly probable that 99.999% of Americans have not heard about those deaths. Indeed, even though most of the murdered were black, who beyond the immediate family and friends of the deceased can name a single unfortunate victim of all the hatred and violence that is commonplace there?

The reason their names and faces are anonymous is that their lives have no value as political fodder for the Demo/media propaganda machine or its so-called “Black Lives Matter” constituency. Those victims are simply tossed onto the pile of 430 homicides in Chicago thus far this year, to the horror of those of us who believe that “all lives matter.”

Now consider this: Last weekend, there was one person murdered in Charlottesville, Virginia, by an Ohio man, and the whole world knows the name of that unfortunate victim.

Charlottesville is, as anyone who has been there can attest, a great town. In January, I declined an invitation to attend the Trump inaugural fanfare, opting instead that weekend to meet my son in Charlottesville for a few days visiting friends and re-visiting historic sites.

This area is, in my opinion, the richest historic region in America.

Charlottesville is the site of Declaration of Independence author Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello home, which sits just above the town, and his beloved University of Virginia. Just beyond Monticello is James Monroe’s Highland home place. To the north is Montpelier, home of our Constitution’s author, James Madison. To the west is Lexington, home of Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Academy — and burial place of Virginia sons Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Northeast is George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and the home of George Mason. To the east are Richmond, Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown — the final battle site of the American Revolution.

Despite being the epicenter of such extraordinary history, Charlottesville is also lorded over by a disgraceful mayor, Mike Signer, and his Leftist city council — a group of Berkeley wannabes who have led local historical purges of Thomas Jefferson and Robert E. Lee.

It was the planned removal of a small statue of the latter from a city park that was the catalyst for the obscene riots last weekend in this otherwise quiet and idyllic town.

That riot was a clash between sociopathic forces — the antifa, the ironically self-styled “anti-fascists” leading the Leftist intifada against anyone supporting Liberty or any economic system other than socialism, and the alt-right, an anarcho-fascist fringe movement of white supremacists. Notably the alt-right racists had an ACLU-defended permit for their protest hate speech. The antifa socialists and black supremacists showed up in mass without a permit.




Eight years of racial antagonism by Barack Obama and his radical regime led to mass riots in more than 20 American urban centers, fomented by Leftist groups operating under the banners of Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, antifa, et al. That violence erupted in Oakland, Akron and Pittsburgh in 2009; Santa Cruz, Oakland and Los Angeles in 2010; Oakland in 2011; Chicago and Anaheim in 2012; Brooklyn in 2013; Ferguson and New York City in 2014; Baltimore in 2015; Anaheim, Chicago, St. Paul, Milwaukee, Charlotte, Standing Rock, Oakland and Portland in 2016; and DC, Berkeley, Anaheim, Berkeley part 2, Berkeley part 3, Olympia and Portland in 2017.

While Republicans, Democrats and the mainstream media have correctly tagged one side of the hateful antagonists in Charlottesville as “white supremacists,” you won’t find any reference by any Democrat, or their Leftmedia propagandists, to the “black supremacists” who were at the center of, or significant participants in, all the aforementioned urban violence.

Nor did a single politico or media outlet rightly tag Micah X, who murdered five police officers in Dallas a year ago, a “black supremacist.” He was just the latest manifestation of the Democrats’ playbook, which endeavors to foment disunity to rally constituencies. To them, dead police officers are just collateral damage.

Remarkably, the riot in Charlottesville has already received more mass media bandwidth than the attempted mass assassination in June of multiple Republican congressmen in Alexandria, Virginia, by a hate-filled Bernie Sanders supporter.

Perhaps “Virginia is [not] for Lovers” after all? Actually, Virginia is a great state when it’s not baiting anarchist haters.

Given the media feeding frenzy inspired by the riots in Charlottesville, allow me to impart a few observations.

First: Regarding President Donald Trump’s repeated condemnation of both the racists and the socialists

Assessing the violence, Charlottesville police chief Al Thomas noted, “Other groups [opposing the alt-right faction] began amassing along the street and in the park. Gradually, the crowd sizes increased along with aggressiveness and hostility of attendees toward one another. We did have mutually combating individuals in the crowd.”

This mutual violence was evident to everyone present, and it was affirmed in real time by New York Times reporter Hawes Spencer, who observed, “Protesters maced each other, threw water bottles and urine balloons — some of which hit reporters — and generally beat the crap out of each other with flagpoles.”

However, Trump should not have dared to suggest that the violence was from both sides of the idiot line. According to the Leftmedia, the antifa groups are just a bunch of wholesome all-American “counter-protesters” defending our country against an epidemic of right-wing (Republican) hatred.

After concurring with the police chief and other observers about “mutually combating individuals,” Trump said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides. No matter our color, creed, religion or political party we are all Americans first.”

But that denunciation wasn’t sufficient for the Leftmedia — or for establishment Republicans, who knew full well that the Demo/MSM would label them as “soft on supremacists” because Trump dared to identify both ugly factions.

Sunday, the White House communications staff followed up with: “The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred and of course that includes white Supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups. He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.”

But even that was insufficient for the Leftmedia. Trump had failed to elevate the standing of the conflict to the level that best serves the Demo/MSM agenda and the need to cash in on the chaos for ad revenue and political contributions.

So Trump on Monday called a press confab and repeatedly condemned the racists in what was to be a unifying speech.

But that was too little too late for the Leftmedia.




On Tuesday, in a contentious confrontation with MSM agitators, Trump dared again to suggest that the violence was mutual: “You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now: I think there is blame on both sides and I don’t have a doubt about it and you [reporters] don’t have a doubt about it either.”

He also condemned the removal of historic markers, saying, “This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s [statue is] coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, when does it stop?”

Of the Leftmedia “outrage” over Trump’s responses, Vice President Mike Pence said, “I take issue with the fact that many in the media have spent an awful lot of time focusing on what the president said and criticisms of what the president said, instead of criticizing those who brought that hatred and violence to the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia.” He is correct.

Second: The Bannon problem

While I believe Trump’s response to the violence was measured — if very Trumpian — I also believe he has a problem on his staff by the name of Steve Bannon, chairman of his 2016 campaign and now his chief strategist.

Here’s the problem.

Jason Kessler is the white supremacist organizer of the “Unite the Right” protest in Charlottesville. He’s a University of Virginia graduate who lists on his résumé his last job as being a writer for “Daily Caller,” an online “conservative” news website co-founded in 2010 by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. For the record, despite the fact that I like Carlson’s commentary, our staff considers Daily Caller a well-funded titillation tabloid, and for that reason, it undermines the standing of genuine grassroots conservative publications. Indeed, as of this week, Daily Caller has scrubbed the commentary it hosted from Kessler.

Kessler’s colleague, Massachusetts native Richard Spencer, also a UVA graduate, was agitating the hatefest in Charlottesville.

Spencer is the founder of AlternativeRight.com, the alt-right homepage espousing, among other things, white supremacist views. After Trump’s election, Spencer led an alt-right conference group with “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!” chants. When Trump tapped Bannon to be a senior advisor, Spencer claimed he was in “the best possible position” to influence policy.

That brings me to Bannon himself, who took control of Breitbart News in 2012 after the death of Andrew Breitbart. Bannon did to Andrew’s popular website what Jeff Bezos is doing to the once-respectable Washington Post — adulterating its content to comport with extremist political views.

Breitbart News described Spencer’s website as the “center of alt-right thought,” and in 2016, Bannon declared Breitbart “the platform for the alt-right.” Spencer concurred, noting that Breitbart “has acted as a ‘gateway’ to alt-right ideas and writers.”

This, of course, doesn’t make Bannon or Trump “white supremacists.” Bannon, like Trump, has a propensity for shooting from the hip and saying stupid stuff. And most Trump supporters would have no idea what the “alt-right” is because, in fact, it’s nothing more than a minuscule fringe political identity group. But the Leftmedia would have you believe it’s the very foundation of the Republican Party.

In November 2016, Trump responded to questions about Bannon’s appointment, saying, “I’ve known Steve Bannon a long time. If I thought he was a racist, or alt-right I wouldn’t even think about hiring him.”

But can you detect the problem here?

All you need to know about Bannon is that he does not have enough humility, in the interest of Trump’s agenda, to resign.

Third: Regarding the Orwellian trend of “historical cleansing” underway by Leftists

The “progressive” use of violence to force the removal of historical monuments from public spaces should concern Americans of all political stripes. This extremely dangerous trend by Leftists, like those sitting on the city council of historical hub Charlottesville, smacks of socialist Soviet “airbrushing” and the Maoist “Cultural Revolution.”

Longtime friend of The Patriot Post, distinguished George Mason University professor Walter Williams, has issued erudite warnings about the consequences of historical ignorance here and here, including the removal of historic markers to Confederate generals and the rewriting of American history.

The vast majority of Americans, including me, who strenuously object to tearing down and stamping out our historical heritage do not object because of some racist affinity. We object because this is our story, and because whitewashing it is an affront to American history and to our legacy of Liberty.

Predictably, seizing the mindless momentum, the Black Congressional Caucus issued demands for the first phase of monument removals in the U.S. Capitol building.




As 20th century philosopher George Santayana concluded in his treatise, “The Life of Reason”: “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

English writer Aldous Huxley put it more succinctly: “That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.”

Fourth: The ACLU and Charlottesville Police

Notably, ACLU observers on Twitter were among the first to report that the Charlottesville police had stand-down orders, allowing the violence to escalate: “Clash between protesters and counter protesters. Police say, ‘We’ll not intervene until given command to do so.’” But that order never came.

This was affirmed by Fox News reporter Doug McKelway, who was in the middle of the combatants. “When the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate. I asked the guy who was in charge, ‘Where you going?’ He said, ‘We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.’ They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.”

If police officers are wholly unprepared for the level of violence, they should retreat. But this retreat looked more like the “stand-down” order that accelerated the 2015 Baltimore race riots.

Fifth: Who is funding antifa, Black Lives Matter and all the other Marxist/black supremacist groups that have emerged since 2008?

Judicial Watch is suing America-hating billionaire socialist George Soros for his funding records of Leftist political groups. Keep a sharp eye on the outcome of this lawsuit.

Finally, regarding the Republicans’ stampede to distance themselves from phony Leftist charges of racism, seeking to distance yourself from something already far removed actually feeds the narrative that maybe it is not so far removed.

To paraphrase a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “Republicans doth apologize too much, methinks.”

The Democrat Party and its Leftmedia outlets are colluding to publicize, and thus politicize, upcoming alt-right-versus-antifa venues for conflict in order to advance their agenda. In doing so, they hope to hang these riots around Republican necks.

But let’s be clear: Every drop of blood that’s shed in these riots — and there will be more of them — is on the hands of the Demo/MSM propaganda machine that is fomenting the disunity that propagates them — and Republicans had better start shining a light on that, as Donald Trump has done, rather than cowering behind a microphone.

Charlottesville Violent Participants Pt ONE


John R. Houk
© August 16, 2017

The clash between extreme Left and extreme Right in Charlottesville VA has been a primary staple of the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) lately. The difficulty with the reporting is that it is all one-sided.

It is an awesome thing to expose the racism involved with the extreme Right protesters using Confederate history as an excuse to go medieval. HOWEVER, it is a huge MSM failure to not report that the extreme Left came to that protest ready to engage in head-knocking as well. This what President Trump has been communicating that there was wrong on both sides. But the MSM used the President’s two wrongs don’t make a right commentary as a fake news accusation that he supported the racists in the Charlottesville melee.

I personally am a bit perturbed with the MSM associating ALL Conservative supporters of the Trump agenda to Make America Great Again with the racist extremists who came to bash extreme Leftist heads.

In this Part ONE I am going to look at the Charlottesville racists as a bit of an expose of what Conservatives must denounce. Then Part Two I will look at the background of the extreme Left who came to bash the heads of the extreme Right. I’ll be using a grouping of racists I found at The Gospel Coalition.

A witness on the Counter-Protest side of Charlottesville clash - Kristin Adolfson – recounts her perspective:

“But I was getting the heck out of there. I always look for escape routes. Most people were moving away from the various white-supremacist groups marching downtown—the neo-Nazis, the Southern Brotherhood, or whatever, with their shields.

“I thought there were gonna be a lot more alt-right people there. As far as what I saw, it was, like, five counter-protesters for every neo-Nazi.

“One of the alt-right factions marched right by and we just stood there and watched them intently, making eye contact. At that point, they ran into another group of counter-protesting locals, who were African-American. The alt-right people were chanting, ‘Heil Trump!’ That got really intense, so we tried to get some cops, but they didn’t come at that point.

“I was about ten feet away when the car came. I had joined a group marching from the Downtown Mall—a group of anti-fascists and Black Lives Matter folks—and we were silently marching by Friendship Court, a low-income-housing area where many minorities live. We’d heard that the fascists had already gone there and tried to cause problems. So we marched by, in silence. We didn’t want to make a scene. We just wanted to be in solidarity with the people there. Then we saw a bunch of other counter-protesters coming down Second Street. Another diverse group. We all were cheering together, marching together, clapping and chanting. There was no one else around. No standoff. We were just marching, being peaceful. This was around two o’clock, I guess. It was a very exuberant feeling of solidarity, community, all that.


“I was ten feet away, so I didn’t really see details of the car. It was just sudden movement through the crowd, sound, bodies in the air. One of my friends was an inch away from the car. I went and found her and she was looking for her partner. She was freaking out. I stood with her until she found him. She’s in one of those photos circulating around now.

READ ENTIRETY (A Witness to Terrorism in Charlottesville; By Charles Bethea; The New Yorker; 8/13/17)

Bethea’s interview with Kristin Adolfson was a bit one-sided because there is zero mention of the counter-protesters coming armed ready to confront the racist White Supremacist groups who also came armed. The Bethea interview does point out the counter-protesters outnumbered the racist White Supremacist 5 to 1:

“I thought there were gonna be a lot more alt-right people there. As far as what I saw, it was, like, five counter-protesters for every neo-Nazi.

I wonder what the reader would have come away thinking if they knew Antifa (“anti-fascists”) and Black Lives Matter (BLT) were represented among the counter-protesters and many came geared in battle garb?

Most Americans understand the racist nature of White Supremacist groups such as the KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Nationalists and such that may come to mind. However, just in case time has distanced some younger folks to just what these American racists stood for, let’s take a brief look.

The Gospel Coalition names these White Supremacists at Charlottesville VA:

Some of the groups included were the Proud Boys (a far-right men's organization), the Alt Knights (a “tactical defensive arm of the Proud Boys”), the American Guard (a white nationalist group), Real 3% Risen (a neo-Confederate group), League of the South (a neo-Confederate group), the Lightfoot Militia (a private militia group), the Traditionalist Worker Party (a white nationalist group), the Nationalist Front (a white nationalist group), Vanguard America (a white nationalist group), and four different groups of the KKK. (The FAQs: Violence and Death at a White Nationalist Rally in Charlottesville; By Joe Carter; The Gospel Coalition; 8/14/17)

I am going to look at the group listed by TGC which in full disclosure probably is not a complete list. For example, the Leftist news site Vox also included a group called [Real] 3% Risen. 3%-ers aren’t usually racists and are typically more upset with the Federal government deviating from Originalist Constitutionalism. I’m having a difficult time referencing the Real 3% Risen group thus I am sticking with the TGC list. If I was to hazard a guess though, if the Real 3% Risen group were not White Supremacists, they would have been the only non-White Supremacists in Charlottesville VA.

I begin with the KKK.

Ku Klux Klan (KKK)

The KKK was formed in post-Civil War day primarily in the Southern States rebelling against Union. Here’s a History.com excerpt:

Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks. Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at white and black Republican leaders. Though Congress passed legislation designed to curb Klan terrorism, the organization saw its primary goal–the reestablishment of white supremacy–fulfilled through Democratic victories in state legislatures across the South in the 1870s. After a period of decline, white Protestant nativist groups revived the Klan in the early 20th century, burning crosses and staging rallies, parades and marches denouncing immigrants, Catholics, Jews, blacks and organized labor.  THERE IS MORE including video (KU KLUX KLAN; History.com Staff; History.com; published 2009)

Did you notice the Dems and not the GOP initiated the KKK?

Wikipedia sources the Leftist SPLC and Pro-Jewish Rights ADL on KKK “Current Developments”:

The modern KKK is not one organization; rather it is composed of small independent chapters across the United States.[198] According to a 1999 ADL report, the KKK's estimated size then was "No more than a few thousand, organized into slightly more than 100 units."[199] In 2017, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which monitors extremist groups, estimated that there were "at least 29 separate, rival Klan groups currently active in the United States, and they compete with one another for members, dues, news media attention and the title of being the true heir to the Ku Klux Klan."[200] Analysts believe that about two-thirds of KKK members are concentrated in the Southern United States, with another third situated primarily in the lower Midwest.[199][201][202]


According to a 2016 analysis by the SPLC, hate groups in general are on the rise in the United States.[205] The ADL published a report in 2016 that concluded: "Despite a persistent ability to attract media attention, organized Ku Klux Klan groups are actually continuing a long-term trend of decline. They remain a collection of mostly small, disjointed groups that continually change in name and leadership."[206]


Many KKK groups have formed strong alliances with other white supremacist groups, such as neo-Nazis. Some KKK groups have become increasingly "nazified", adopting the look and emblems of white power skinheads.[210] (Ku Klux Klan; Wikipedia; last edited on 8/14/17 03:30)

In doctrine, the KKK are as racist as ever with a vain attempt to distance themselves from violent brutality which is still conducted. From the Counter Extremism Project:

The KKK’s overriding doctrine is white supremacy, white solidarity, and preservation of the white race. The group describes itself as “promoters of White Christian civilization.”

...

Notwithstanding these attempts to disassociate the KKK from its racist foundations, the “same bigoted rhetoriclurks beneath the veneer,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The KKK “target[s] blacks more often than any other group.” Biracial couples are also “frequent targets of Klan violence,” while anti-Semitism and “rabidly homophobic” literature since the 1970s also form key pillars of the KKK’s ideology. (Ku Klux Klan; © 2017 Counter Extremism Project)

According TGC, The Charlottesville rally organization the protest permit on behalf of the Proud Boys.

Proud Boys

Proud Boys is a far-right men's organization[1][2][3][4] founded in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder and former commentator Gavin McInnes. McInnes describes the organization as a "pro-Western fraternal organization" for men who "refuse to apologize for creating the modern world."[5]The group has been referred to as alt-right,[6] but McInnes describes the alt-right as "too far" because they think "Whites are what [are] important, not necessarily Western values", and instead identifies as "alt-lite". He claims to be inclusive to anyone "as long as you accept the western world as the best."[7]

The group takes its name from the showtune "Proud of Your Boy," a song introduced in the 2011 stage-show version of Disney's Aladdin.[6][8]

In 2017, Kyle Chapman, with the "full-approval" of McInnes, formed a "street fighting" wing of the Proud Boys called the "Fraternal Order of the Alt-Knights" (FOAK).[9][10] (Proud Boys; Wikipedia; page was last edited on 8/15/17 16:55)

From ItsGoingDown.org:

Established last year, the Proud Boys was meant to be something between an adult frat and a fan club for Gavin McInnes’ media projects on Compound and Rebel Media. The political aspect of the group was meant to mirror Gavin’s; support of the Trump agenda, male chauvinism, and hatred of Islam, trans people, and leftists. McInnes himself flirts with fascist ideas, writing a column for Taki’s Magazine (a job Richard Spencer helped him land) justifying the political genocide of the Pinochet regime, and often giving a supportive platform to open fascists and neo-Nazis like Emily YoucisNathan Damigo, and Sam Hyde on his show.

Despite his affiliations, McInnes has been adamant about keeping Proud Boys an arm’s length from America’s growing neo-Nazi movement, something he recently reiterated in a video for Rebel Media. He claims, first of all, that Nazis don’t exist—most people claiming to be Nazis are just trolling and any reported hate crimes are hoaxes perpetrated by liberals, and secondly, the few Nazis who do exist should not be Proud Boys because he wants the group to appeal to “Jews” and “Blacks.”

Proud Boys were prominent in their black and gold polo shirts, and black, latino, and Jewish Trump supporters fought alongside various species of white identitarians Sal Cipolla of Oceanside New York, a regional leader of the Proud Boys who is part Colombian. McInnes says he hopes to have a conservative movement to which people of color can defect, and does not worry about inviting them to join in a popular front that starts with his own brand “civil nationalism,” and ends with the white nationalists and raging anti-Semites in their coalition.

But Gavin must know how wrong he is that there are no Nazis. Several prominent Proud Boys run in their circles, even Cipolla, who is oddly accepted under the grounds that they will “send him back last.” Together, the allegedly “Alt-Lite” Proud Boys and self-proclaimed neo-Nazis from the Daily Stormer blog and The Right Stuff podcast network have formed an Alt-Right popular front with an agenda of injecting White Nationalism, including it’s most radical calls for ethnic cleansing, genocide, and “White Sharia” into “normy” Trumpism, and intimidating and attacking leftists, queers, and people of color. While they will defend themselves on the grounds of free speech, their incitement to violence has a recent history of success.

Since their inception, the Proud Boys have been rooted in THERE IS MORE (Neo-Nazis Brag of Open Connections with Gavin’s ‘Proud Boys’; By One People's Project; ItsGoingDown.org - Overtly Leftist; 5/18/17)


No matter what hear Gavin McInnis says, these Proud Boys dudes are wick racists more than Patriotic Nationalists looking for legitimization from President Trump’s coattails.

Next on the list is Alt Knights.

Alt Knights

From the Proud Boys official website:

Shock waves were sent through the Proud Boy universe yesterday as Kyle Chapman, better known as the internet meme “Based Stick Man” announced on facebook he planned to start a Fraternal Order of Alt Knights (or “FOAK”) as a tactical defensive arm of the Proud Boys.  The need for defense has grown since recent premeditated attacks by the radical Marxist group “Anti-Fa” have become the norm at any cultural event politically to the right of Jane Fonda.  Anti-Fa were responsible for the riots in DC, the assault on Gavin McInnes at NYU, and the violent blockade at multiple free speech events including Berkeley in California. (The Kids Are Alt-Knights; By PawL BaZiLe; Proud Boy Magazine; 4/2017)

Alt Knights founder Kyle Chapman has a history of getting caught breaking the law and has served considerable time in the slammer:

Rap sheet: Suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed dirk or dagger, assault with a taser, assault with pepper spray March 4; 1993 felony robbery conviction in Texas; 2001 grand theft conviction for ripping off Macy’s in San Diego; 2009 conviction for felon in possession of a firearm. (The kids are alt-right: Your guide to the new crop of white nationalists; By C-VILLE Writers; C-Ville.com; 8/10/17 9:00 AM)

Chapman’s jailbird days must have turned him into thug deceiving himself he is beating people for the nation:

Shortly after the March 4 Berkeley incident, Chapman was arrested again. He was taken into police custody in early April after he allegedly got into an altercation with a skateboarder who hit him, and another man threatened him with a knife.

Chapman said in a video that he was marching through Berkeley wearing a large American flag so as to advertise for a free-speech rally planned in the city later in the week.

“Just wanted to show you guys there is nothing to fear by coming out here and exercising our First Amendment rights,” he said in the video. “Most of the inhabitants of this city are a bunch of f*****g cowards that couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag.”


Chapman has started his own branch of American Nationalism, called the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights.

He claimed that he started the group to “protect and defend our right wing brethren.” Chapman said he hoped to accomplish those goals through “street activism, preparation, defense, and confrontation.”

“(The group) is for those that possess the Warrior Spirit. The weak or timid need not apply,” Chapman wrote. “President Trump has our back for the next 8 years. The timing couldn’t be better. Let’s do this!” (Kyle Chapman aka ‘Based Stickman’: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know; By Chris Bucher; Heavy.com; 6/4/17 8:00am – Updated 5:32pm)

I’m all for America First nationalism, but when some of these fellows like Chapman and McInnis use violence to promote a racist American nationalism makes them no them no better than the Leftist Marxists who use race-baiting to incite racists to violence.

Next on the list is the American Guard.

American Guard

They had American flags, but also carried strange shields. Many wore t-shirts that read “American Guard” or “Vinlanders.”  A few had somewhat sinister appearances, such as the marcher who wore “Vinlanders” sunglasses and sported a “RAHOWA” (“Racial Holy War”) tattoo on the side of his head.


The group would, it claimed, “encourage Americans of any race, class or faith to participate with us in these beliefs.”

Even a cursory examination of the American Guard, however, suggests that its deliberately innocuous self-description may not be accurate. The group’s logo, for example, prominently displays two crossed meat-cleavers, while members frequently use images of actor Daniel Day Lewis in his role as “Bill the Butcher” in the movie The Gangs of New York. “Bill the Butcher” was a fictionalized version of William Pool, the leader of the Bowery Boys, a violent street gang in New York City infamous for its attacks on immigrants.


Indeed, before the American Guard was the American Guard, it was actually the Indiana chapter of a group called the Soldiers of Odin USA, a branch of an extreme anti-immigrant and anti-refugee group that originated in Finland in 2015 and has spread to many other countries.  As a recent ADL report has shown, many Soldiers of Odin USA members are white supremacists or anti-government extremists.

The man who started the Indiana Soldiers of Odin, and who later converted it into the American Guard, is Brien James, a long-time Indiana white supremacist who was one of the founders of the Vinlanders Social Club (VSC), a hardcore racist skinhead gang that has had a high association with violence.  READ ENTIRETY (Behind The American Guard: Hardcore White Supremacists; Anti-Defamation League; 3/30/17)

Next on the list is the League of the South.

League of the South

Here are some excerpts from the League of the South website.

What is The League of the South?
by Dr Michael Hill - LS President

The League of the South is a Southern Nationalist organization whose ultimate goal is a free and independent Southern republic.

To reach this goal, we intend to create the climate for a free South among our people 


At present, the League is more concerned with resurrecting our cultural base than with entering into the political arena. Once our Southern culture is re-established, then the political issues will begin to take care of themselves.


At its founding meeting in June 1994, The League of the South adopted the following Statement of Purpose:

"We seek to advance the cultural, social, economic, and political well-being and independence of the Southern people by all honourable means."


I. Cultural Independence

The League of the South believes that Southern culture is distinct from, and in opposition to, the corrupt mainstream American culture. Therefore, we stand for our own sublime cultural inheritance and seek to separate ourselves from the cultural rot that is American culture.


II. Social Independence

The League of the South asserts that Southern society is radically different from the society impressed upon it by an alien occupier. American society today is egalitarian and Marxist and is devoid of any grace or charm. In contrast, we believe in a Southern society that

Another certainty is that the American Empire that now occupies the South believes in none of the aforementioned ideals and principles. To be truly free and self- governing, the South must throw off the yoke of imperial oppression. Therefore, The League of the South advocates the secession and subsequent independence of the Southern States from this forced union and the formation of a Southern republic. 

§ 

§  Restricts the right to vote solely to those who are recognized as citizens of one of the member States of the confederation.


The term "racism" has its origins in Communism and that movement's sordid attempt to undermine Western Christendom. Because it has been effective in silencing many of their opponents, the modern day left continues to employ it. Hence, we in The League of the South will not respond to what we consider as an anti-white and anti-Southern appellation designed to demonize us and inculcate "white guilt" in our people. If you call us "racists," our response will be "so what?" (Introduction to The League Of The South; League of the South)

These LS guys are definitely not Pro-American. They Separatists trying to recreate the culture that existed during and before the Confederacy. Part of that culture was slavery. Without saying so the LS promotes White Supremacy and segregation. Even after blood and gore, there is no way Americans even the South would allow such regression! No matter how you look at it, this movement is NOT about Making America Great Again!

Next is the Lightfoot Militia.

Lightfoot Militia

The website TGC links to the LM PDF entitled “Militia Standards and Principles of the Light Foot” (81 pages):

Why "Light Foot"?

We in the “Patriot Movement” like tradition.

Up until the late 18th / early 19th century, British infantry units were called "Foot" (foot soldiers).

As in, the "13th Regiment of Foot". Light infantry was called “Light Foot”.

Cavalry was called "Horse", heavy cavalry was "Heavy Horse", for example, the "48th Regiment of Horse".

As we will not have much in the way of supply lines or support elements, we will most likely "live off the land, resupply off the enemy", so to speak. Carrying what we need on our backs through the
mountains and hills. Light = Fast.

Hence, the "Light Foot” militia or "Light Foot", for short (Idaho Light Foot, Utah Light Foot, etc).


Statement of Ethics/Mission Statement
Statement of Ethics –

It is the duty of the citizen’s militia to protect and defend the unalienable Rights of all members of the community. Under no circumstances will the militia tolerate those who advocate acts of criminal violence, terrorism or a change away from our republican form of government; nor will it support any specific political party or candidate, nor espouse any particular religious denomination or doctrine. All members must understand the duties and obligation of both citizens and government under the United States and their state's constitution.

Mission Statement -

The members of the unorganized militia shall ever stand, as have our forefathers before us, first to God, from Whom we acknowledge the Authority of all Rights, and all the blessings of governments and to our native state.

We therefore pledge:

- To promote and defend the unalienable God-given rights of all citizens, regardless of race, sex or national origin, as is expressed in our state constitutions and the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution.

- To promote and defend the principles of just government bequeathed to us by our forefathers to whit, that the principle of the Tenth Amendment shall stand inviolate, as history has shown that the greatest system of checks and balances exists with the people and their states to check the powers accrued by the federal government.

- That the integrity of the courts, be they local, State or federal, shall remain uncontemptable providing that they shall respect and uphold the rights of the citizens of the several states, including but not limited to, upholding the due process of law, and to preserve the right of trial by jury, and to obtain immediate judicial review of cases wherein abuse of basic Constitutional rights are questioned.

- That all power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their Life, Liberty, and Property; for the advancement of those ends they have at all times an unalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper. READ ENTIRETY (Bold Text is Editor’s - Militia Standards and Principles of the Light Foot; By Jeffrey Stankiewicz; TheLightfootMilitia.com; 3rd Edition, 4/19/14 (rev 1))

I did not find any hint of racism in this PDF. However, the document is steeped in 10th Amendment State sovereignty yet includes loyalty to the U.S. Constitution and to the State Constitution (in this case Idaho) with obeying the rule of law. UNLESS the government embarks on a path of lawless unconstitutional practices in which case We The People are obligated to “ have at all times an unalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper.”

So, who decides among the Lightfoot Militia that the government has become unconstitutionally corrupt? The measuring stick shows such corruption has been on the increase for decades. But again, who decides that the government has gone too far to be redeemable? The answer is not in the PDF.

Next is the Traditionalist Worker Party.

Traditionalist Worker Party

From the front page to https://www.tradworker.org/:

The Traditionalist Worker Party is America’s first political party created by and for working families. Our mission is defending Faith, Family, and Folk against the politicians and oligarchs who are running America into the ground. We intend to achieve that goal by building a nationwide network of grassroots local leaders who will lead Americans toward a peaceful and prosperous future free from economic exploitation, federal tyranny, and anti-Christian degeneracy.

Notice the Neo-Nazi White Supremacist slogan of “Faith, Family, and Folk”. This is one of the things that bugs me about these racists. They say faith and combine it with Christianity as if the Christian faith is all about racial purity that excludes non-Whites and Jews cannot be Christians. I have news for these racists. The Good News of Jesus Christ is inclusive of all Gentiles (multi-racial non-Jews) and Jews alike. Read all of Chapter 2 of the Epistle to the Ephesians – For clarity here is the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition. For brevity or the point here is an excerpt from Chapter 2:

13 But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were [so] far away, through (by, in) the blood of Christ have been brought near.

14 For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony). He has made us both [Jew and Gentile] one [body], and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us,

15 By abolishing in His [own crucified] flesh the enmity [caused by] the Law with its decrees and ordinances [which He annulled]; that He from the two might create in Himself one new man [one new quality of humanity out of the two], so making peace.

16 And [He designed] to reconcile to God both [Jew and Gentile, united] in a single body by means of His cross, thereby killing the mutual enmity and bringing the feud to an end. (Eph. 2: 13-16 AMPC)

Under the “Folk” heading of the Traditionalist Worker Party the White Supremacist Nazi racism becomes clear:

The ethnic community is the definition of a true nation. Shared blood, history, and traditions are what make a people and bind us together as an extended family. We in the Traditionalist Worker Party fight for the interests of White Americans, a people who for decades have been abandoned by the System and actively attacked by globalists and traitorous politicians.

Only by securing a Homeland for our national community, run for and by our people with true self-determination, can we truly have a future for our blood and our culture. We are unapologetically nationalists, fighting to secure the existence of our people and a future for White children. Every one of our policies and platform planks is built upon achieving the goal of a better, happier, healthier and brighter future for our children.

Next is the Nationalist Front.

Nationalist Front

From the Nationalist Front webpage:

The Nationalist Front is an umbrella organization to bring unity and solidarity to the White Nationalist movement in North America. This is an alliance between many diverse organizations which seek to better the cultural, economic, and demographic conditions of White Americans.


A response to nearly every single problem we have in our nation–from street crime to anti-White governmental policies, to attacks on our sovereignty and faith–can be answered in one simple phrase “If White people had a country of our own, this wouldn’t be happening.”


we now must sever ties with this illegitimate regime and build for our posterity a nation for us and by us, build from the ground up to put the best interests of our Faith, Family and Folk first. 

The only logical solution to the racial strife in America is to follow the example of the dissolution of the USSR and to Balkanize the nation ethnically and culturally.


There is no longer a defining set of principles, language, religion, culture, or ethnicity of America that bonds the various peoples together with one another, only the same oppression of the federal regime. We as White Nationalists must unite with fellow ethnonationalists to stand on the same barricades against the same enemy, the globalists and the Jewish banking elites.

Some Black Americans have already begun to build for themselves a homeland with groups like the Nation of Islam buying thousands of acres of farmland to feed their people, establishing alternative media for their people, celebrating their culture, and gaining political and economic power in regions where Blacks are the majority.

Hispanics have already demographically and culturally displaced the former White majority in much of the American Southwest and should be allowed to formalize their control of the communities and regions they already dominate. We must cede what’s no longer ours while doubling down on the communities and regions which remain majority White to begin building our own sovereign and independent Homeland while respecting the right of self determination for majority non-White regions.

Ick, You get the idea – 21st century Nazism 101 (UNITY STATEMENT; The Nationalist Front)

Next on the list is Vanguard America. The link by TGC is https://bloodandsoil.org/manifesto/. Either the VG removed the site or Wordpress removed it (as of 8/15/17) probably over heat about Charlottesville violence. Here is some Wikipedia info on a similar name National Vanguard:

National Vanguard is an American white nationalist organization based in Charlottesville, Virginia, founded in 2005 by Kevin Alfred Strom and former members of the National Alliance.[1] (National Vanguard (American organization); Wikipedia; page was last edited on 8/15/17 23:11)

A link provided by Wikipedia sends one to the National Vanguard homepage which one can find the About Page:

SCIENCE CONTINUES to prove that race exists. The Human Genome Project has unlocked human DNA, and medical advances are being made based on targeting genetic sequences individual to each race. Thousands upon thousands of years of separate racial development have led to a great diversity of human races, which have in turn formed separate cultures with vastly different values and achievements.


The European race is uniquely beautiful and creative. It is imperative that we survive and progress.

If Vanguard America is similar then racism is prevalent.

The Left-Wing Trump hating Washington Post says this about Vanguard America:

The secretive organization has been emerging publicly since the presidential election, starting with white nationalist fliers on several college campuses and recruiting on a website that vilifies Jews, racial minorities, gays and multiculturalism. Group members have been rallying alongside neo-Nazis, white nationalists and white supremacists, and its members have been seen in images on social media — faces often blurred — as groups of young white men waving black flags and wearing black hats emblazoned with a Vanguard America white eagle logo.


it is unclear how many members Vanguard America has or what broader influence it has achieved. The group’s website rails against the loss of white control of the United States and proclaims white America’s “right to exist.”


Dillon Irizarry, 29, a Marine Corps veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and identifies himself as the group’s president, said in a Skype interview Monday that his is a political group that does not calling for or condone violence.  (Vanguard America, a white supremacist group, denies Charlottesville ramming suspect was a member; By Justin Wm. Moyer and Lindsey Bever; Washington Post; 8/15/17 6:51 PM)

Mr. Irizarry, if Vanguard America is non-violent, why does WaPo have a picture of you guys in battle gear including logo mark shields in Charlottesville VA?


Here is interesting info on Dillon Irizarry:

Dillon Ulysses Hopper, the self-described “CEO” of the Vanguard America neo-Nazi hate group whose members appeared alongside Fields in a widely-circulated photograph taken at the rally, reportedly joined the Marine Corps in 2005. A veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Hopper’s military records show the 29-year-old New Mexico native (whose birth name is Dillon Irizarry) served as an enlisted Marine, an information security technician (MOS 0681).


These days, Hopper reportedly goes by the name “Commander Dillon” — and his “army” was on full display at the #UniteTheRight rally in Charlottesville on Aug. 12, when the group marched alongside other extremist organizations in protest of the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. 

Hopper managed to rise to the rank of staff sergeant and remained on active duty until January 2017, according to his military records. He claimed in an interview with Splinter that he became the leader of Vanguard America one year ago. Marine Corps policy prohibits members from participating in organizations “that espouse supremacist causes,” and violators face possible separation or non-judicial punishment. Evidently that wasn’t enough to deter Hopper. 


Vanguard America reportedly formed in California in 2015 and, according to its website, is guided by the belief that that America has been “brought to its knees by decadence,” and “White Americans will be a minority in the nation they built” if “current trends continue.”  To join the group, a person must be “of at least 80% White/European heritage,” and not a criminal or addict of any kind, explains the group’s website. “Homosexuals, transexuals, adulterers, or any form of sexual degeneracy,” also need not apply.
