Mayhem in New Orleans Over Confederate Monuments: Assault Vehicles, Snipers, and Vandals

Picture

​Left-wing rioters from Antifa drove to New Orleans in an armored assault vehicle, maced a woman in a wheelchair and defaced several Confederate statues. In exchange Confederate supporters landed punches and knocked an Antifa across the head with a flag pole. All of this happened Monday evening on May Day, a date significant to left-wing groups and which coincided with other uprisings around the country.Most of the violent activity occurred while police waited on the sidelines, according to sources who likened the situation to that in other liberal cities like Berkeley. Police were purportedly told to stand down while scenes of mass violence erupted between right and left-wing demonstrators.  With masked men, police snipers, armed Confederates with assault rifles and military convoys bussing in truckloads of ‘anti-fascist’ demonstrators it might seem like a New American Civil War is starting in New Orleans over the legacy of the last one.

​New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu ordered the removal of four Confederate era monuments back in 2015. Early last Monday morning (April 24th), under cover of night, masked construction workers broke in half and carted away the first of the three statues: The Liberty Place Monument. The area around the statue was fenced off, guarded by an NOPD police squad and protected by overhead snipers. After they were done even the names inscribed at the base of the statue to commemorate the dead had been chiseled away, leaving only a blemished stump of concrete.

Since then a small but vigilant contingent of monument supporters from around the country have been guarding the Jefferson Davis statue day and night, presumably because it would be the easiest to remove. The primary impediment to moving the Davis monument is simply that it is bolted in place while the Robert E Lee statue is up high on a pedestal surrounded by street car lines and the P.G.T. Beauregard monument is extremely heavy.

Monday evening, as about a dozen monument supporters were on guard, an assault vehicle (which some have identified as a deuce and a half) full of so-called Antifa, or anti-fascist demonstrators showed up looking for a fight. A banner on the side of their vehicle read, “Fuck off Nazi scum!” and they were waving the red and black flags of anarcho-communism.

Several protestors confronted the Confederate group with taunts like, “F___ you, nazi!” and “Your monument is coming down!” Several bottles and other small implements were thrown at the demonstrators including Andrew Duncomb, a black Confederate supporter.

Several sources confirm that another black Confederate supporter, Arlene Barnum was harassed by several Antifa until she was brought to tears. Despite being purportedly anti-racist activists, Antifa called Barnum a “coon”, “Aunt Jemima” and “house negro”. When she returned to her car later that evening one of her tires had been slashed.

As the night dragged on the violence escalated. Eileen Marcinkowski, a woman whose pelvis was crushed in a May 4th car accident and is bound to a wheelchair, was maced by an Antifa. “This woman comes across the road screaming and spraying mace. There was no provocation and she didn’t seem to be trying to spray anyone in particular. I felt an extreme burning that I never felt before in my life. My lips today are still tingling and swollen.” Eileen went on to explain that one protestor also threw a broken glass bottle that bounced off the side of her wheelchair.

One of the Confederate supporters knocked a protestor over the head with a flagpole. But it wasn’t until both sides began exchanging punches in full view of the media that the New Orleans Police Department stepped in.

​Several Communist groups have already taken credit for the melee including the local New Orleans Workers Group and Take ‘Em Down Nola (which share founding members) as well as a Chicago group called Chicago Rising (aka Occupy Chicago). One leader of Chicago Rising, Spencer Thayer, responded to accusations that his group was bussed in by Mayor Mitch Landrieu, “We don’t work for Mitch. We bus ourselves.”

Later that evening two more Confederate monuments were vandalized. One dedicated to General P.G.T. Beauregard had buckets of red and pink paint splashed across it. It was also fitted with a red cap and several crudely strewn banners which said, “This is historical violence, we say no.”

​A statue to Robert E Lee was hit with graffiti saying, “White supremacy is a lie” and that the “memory (of the Confederacy) never dies”.

Five arrests were made Monday evening, for charges ranging from disturbing the peace to crossing a police cordon and public intoxication. Two of those arrests were from the Confederate supporters. None of the arrests were due to vandalism or the assault on the wheel chair victim, Eileen Marcinkowski.

​With the three monuments and their defenders still standing the issue is far from over. Mayor Mitch Landrieu promised that the statues would not come down during Jazz Fest but could come down during a lull in the festival Monday thru Wednesday of next week. “There’s a gap in between Jazz Fast, so something might happen next week,” Landrieu said.

The Facebook page for Take ‘Em Down Nola is calling for a march to Lee Circle on Sunday afternoon complete with a brass band. The event claims, “The monument is coming down” although there is no indication whether or not that will specifically happen on Sunday.

​Supporters of the statues are hoping to stall until Louisiana’s conservative House of Representatives can pass a Heritage Protection Act (HB-71) which they are scheduled to vote on Wednesday, May 3rd. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is a Democrat and it’s uncertain whether he would sign or veto the bill if it was to reach his desk.

The most ardent heritage supporters have vowed to stay until the end, whatever it may be. When asked what his message for the rest of the country would be Andrew Duncomb, who has been guarding the statues for over a week said, “If you don’t think that the Confederate monuments should stay up that isn’t the point anymore. It’s that the Mayor Landrieau is willing to allow this terrorist group Antifa to act out while the police stand down and allow World War 3.”

Alt Right Protest Syrian War; Antifa Turns Violent

Members of the alt-right, led by Richard Spencer, protested outside the White House Saturday evening. They condemned missile strikes launched by the United States against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. In a bizarre turn of events, members of the far-left group Antifa turned up to protest against the alt-right anti-war rally though few would go on record about the missile strikes themselves.

Spencer, a proponent of ethnic nationalism, invited attendees by Twitter and YouTube to Lafayette Square in front of the White House for a “peaceful gathering against further military intervention in Syria”. Spencer emphasized that the 59 tomahawk missiles fired by the Trump administration into the Shayrat military base in Syria could be only the beginning and that voters should, “tell Donald Trump unequivocally: not in our name. No more Neocon wars” before it’s too late.
When asked by reporters and Spencer himself about their perspective on the missile strikes various Antifa protestors declined to comment. One Antifa supporter told me that he did not support the missile strikes but also did not support the alt-right because, “they actually support Assad and support the genocide.” When asked what his solution to the Syrian conflict would be the Antifa activist replied, “Implement full Communism…seize the means of production.” When asked how Communism could be implemented during a full-blown civil war he declined to comment.Another attendee on the Antifa side was infamous Disrupt J20 activist Paul “Luke” Kuhn who was caught on tape by Project Veritas planning to gas the Deploraball with butyric acid. He also declined comment and ran from the camera.

During the rally Spencer and the alt-right chanted “America first”, “Take a shower”, “Fire Kushner” and “Build walls, not wars”. The Antifa counter-protestors shouted back “Fuck you Nazis” and “No Nazis, no KKK, no fascists USA.”

Towards the end of the rally events turned violent. One Antifa protestor broke through Spencer’s line of bodyguards to throw glitter on his face and shoulders. An alt-right supporter tackled the Antifa to the ground and exchanged blows.

​As Spencer and his associates made their exit from Lafayette they were chased down the street by Antifa. At one point Spencer made it into a cab only to be assaulted by a mob beating on the windows with their fists. One man opened the trunk of the vehicle and tried to reach for Spencer before Spencer’s crew exited the vehicle and ran for a mile or more from pursuers before finally making their escape in another cab.

Police threw several of the Antifa assailants to the ground and began making arrests.

SPLC Outs Itself as a Hate Group in Douglasville 15 Trial

Picture

3/2/2017

4 COMMENTS

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.

Picture

The face of “justice” being served: Kayla Rae Norton sentenced to 15 years in prison.

​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.

Esteban Santiago: The Siren Song of Jihad for Immigrants and the Mentally Ill

Picture

Esteban Santiago (left) gives one finger salute popular among ISIS militants

Estaban Santiago, an immigrant from the US territory of Puerto Rico, took a flight from his home in Anchorage, Alaska aboard Air Canada. When the plane touched down at its destination in Fort Lauderdale he claimed his bags, which included a checked gun. He walked into the rest room and loaded a clip. When he emerged he opened fire without saying a word, wounding 13 and killing 5.

Like Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hassan, Santiago is a strange cocktail of military service, psychiatric instability and fixation with radical Islamic ideology. Like with Nidal Hassan there were warning signs, ignored by authorities perhaps fearing political correctness or, in this case, dismissing the incongruency of a hispanic ISIS militant. There was a borderline schizophrenic instability to Santiago. A man at war with himself to some degree. Months before the attack he turned himself in to the FBI office in Anchorage claiming that he had been “forced to fight for ISIS”, “”forced to watch their videos”. This was likely the last great gasp of caution from whatever self-critical conscience still existed within his mind. Santiago’s metaphorical war within ran deep. He recently became a father, but was himself the subject of a child pornography investigation.

​There is evidence that Santiago’s broken mind was compromised by Radical Islam. He lived mere blocks from the Islamic Community Center Anchorage, the only mosque in Alaska. One of his online pseudonyms, Naota33 was discovered trying to download jihadi propaganda on a site frequented by firearm and explosives enthusiasts. He’s also been pictured giving an index finger salute popular among ISIS militants (pictured above) which refers to tawhid or ‘the belief in the oneness of God’. The garment he wears around his neck is a keffiyeh, worn in the Middle East to avoid sandstorms. It has become popular among some US soldiers stationed in the Middle East but it is also a sign of identification with Middle Eastern culture and a popular Islamist fashion accessory.

Picture

Going forward, authorities have to take it very seriously when a mentally unstable young man begins to talk about radical Islam. The nature of the ISIS threat is that it exists online where it may worm it’s way into the minds of the most frustrated and demented members of Western society: the second generation Muslim immigrant seething that he has been transplanted into a culture where he doesn’t belong, the sociopathic or schizophrenic paranoid who seeks a justification to lash out at The West, and now twice, the battle-scarred Islamic military veteran torn by divided loyalty.
Picture

Santiago was deployed to Iraq in 2010; a member of the National Guard from 2007-2016.

Authorities closed their file on Santiago once he had been admitted for psychiatric treatment. He claimed that he “didn’t want to hurt anyone”. But it seems that authorities have underestimated the insidious appeal of militant Islam on those disaffected with The West. Like Black Lives Matter, militant Islam exists as a call to action for the violent rage some minorities feel towards the white majority. This is the so-called “self-radicalization” phenomenon which works exactly as intended by the militant mollahs. They claim credit for another blow against America while their liberal apologists in the Democratic Party chalk it up to mental illness, failing to recognize how such deranged individuals are specifically preyed upon and pushed over the edge by the cult of radical Islam.

Just keep repeating, “Diversity is our strength. Islam is a religion of peace.”

Anti-White Charlottesville Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy Attacks Whites, Women, Blacks Who Talk White

Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy has created deep divisions within the Charlottesville community by taking a largely administrative position and turning it into a bully pulpit to attack white culture and history. Wes Bellamy recently targeted Lee Park, demanding that a historical Robert E. Lee statue be removed, despite a price tag of over $700,000 dollars to taxpayers. But it’s all about his deep seated resentments. Bellamy doesn’t care about massively overspending to get his way.

Wes Bellamy tweets

Charlottesville is a very liberal city in Central Virginia which voted overwhelmingly for President Obama twice and no doubt took a lot of pride in voting for Wes Bellamy on race alone. They thought they would simply pat themselves on the back about how tolerant and diverse they were. In the process they demanded no vetting from the media for a man who is essentially a carpetbagger from Atlanta with a criminal history of assaulting police officers and a blatant black supremacist.

Of course there have been many concerned voices about Wes Bellamy’s plan to attack white history by removing the Robert E. Lee statue but the community and media seem to have written his critics off as cranks and fringe Confederate history buffs. Meanwhile he reportedly stacks all of his committees with all or majority black appointees, attends 100 Black Man racist anti-white conferences, and uses his power to harass local business owners who criticize Black Lives Matter.
Picture

Even more alarmingly, Wes Bellamy has intimated that he intends to target the legacy of Former President Thomas Jefferson, who founded the University of Virginia and who resided here at his plantation home, Monticello. Wes Bellamy spoke to local CBS affiliate CBS 19: “Right now, we are going to be looking at the Confederate statues, but in terms of Monticello, Thomas Jefferson, and things of that nature, I think those are conversations we do need to have here in the city of Charlottesville.”

Picture

 It’s unclear whether Wes Bellamy’s radical anti-white agenda had any connection to the Marxist element on campus who recently scolded UVA President Theresa Sulllivan for quoting Jefferson but it certainly didn’t help. In lieu of making headlines for planning Charlottesville highway development, infrastructure and water conservation like other members of city council, it seems that Bellamy has dedicated himself almost exclusively to his Afrocentric racial agenda, running roughshod over the effete white liberals making up the Charlottesville Democratic Party.

Picture

When serial killer Jesse Matthews Jr. was captured for murdering several young white women, Vice-Mayor Bellamy lamented how it would reflect on his race. “It’s just tough being an African-American male now,” Bellamy told a Roanoke reporter. To hell with consoling the victims families or allaying the fears of the parents who send their children to school in our community. It’s all about how the PR of a black serial killer affects his racial agenda.

Wes Bellamy tweets

When the UVA basketball team took a knee à la Colin Kaepernick to protest the police, Wes Bellamy showed up to badmouth the Charlottesville PD and offer the official racial position of the Charlottesville City Council. You know: suppress public knowledge of crime statistics, there’s no such thing as personal accountability, ignore that police shoot more whites than blacks and if a criminal violently resists arrest we pretend like it didn’t happen.

With all these things in mind I looked into his Twitter for further evidence of anti-white bias and found many, many examples. It’s time the media did it’s job and held Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy to account for his anti-white racism and disrespect of our women.
