There were two marches this weekend that exposed the FBI and Jewish media for the frauds they are.

One featured 150 or so members of Patriot Front, who traveled through the streets of Washington DC in a highly organized and peaceful fashion.

The Jew Maya Oppenheim at The Independent could hardly contain her anger at this demonstration concluding without any violence, resorting to concern trolling local law enforcement about whether they had a permit, something that is not required for a rally of this type in DC. The “antifa” contingent that managed to show up was heavily outnumbered and ignored – an organic outgrowth of the “community” they are not.

Contrast this with Portland, where anarchists took to the street to fight imaginary Klansmen. With no designated political target in sight, the rabid animals settled for assaulting random pedestrians and defacing a monument dedicated to men who gave their lives in war. The citizens of Portland were attacked with batons, concrete, bear mace and rocks all with the approval of Mayor Ted Wheeler.

The equation is simple: no anarchists, no violence.

The bad faith response from “antifa’s” elite liberal apologists to what we see with our own two eyes is that members of communist and anarchist groups have not killed anyone since 2016, which itself is a lie. But even if we take them at their word, neither have members of any right-wing protest group, from Patriot Front to Proud Boys to the boogeymen in the Ku Klux Klan. Yet all the nationalist groups are treated by the state and media as if they are the terrorists.

The next red herring they throw out when the first fails is that “antifa” describes itself as “anti-fascist” and “anti-racist,” thus affirming the status quo ideology and giving them the moral right to violently suppress those who challenge the powers that be. But ISIS publications also go out of their way to stress that the group is “anti-racist,” while another leftist tried to kill Trump supporters engaging in voter registration with his car likely in the name of combating “fascism,” something the FBI has shown 0 interest in despite the letter of Civil Rights law existing specifically to combat something like this. There are all kinds of murders committed in the name of punishing “racism” and fascism, there’s just no SPLC or ADL keeping count.

Which brings us back to the root of Oppenheim’s frustration. Patriot Front did not give advance notice, which forced the local DC police to default to First Amendment protocol (unlike in Charlottesville, where the Mayor and police chief had time to set the stage for violence), locked out pro-antifa “journalists,” and did not give leftists enough time to bus communists and anarchists in to provoke a riot.

The anarchist playbook is to assault peaceful demonstrators, get their asses handed to them, then wait for air cover like Roberta Kaplan’s $10 million dollar vexatious litigation or politically selective FBI prosecution targeting dogma-questioners for “conspiracy to riot,” smoking weed or playing around with a rifle’s lower receiver.

How many “domestic terror” arrests would the FBI come away with if they went fishing on the other side’s private chatrooms and started recruiting people for Willem Van Spronsen style attacks on federal facilities? It would certainly be easier than the wild goose chases they have been going on since Charlottesville, abusing their vast prosecutorial and surveillance powers to get involved in Chris Cantwell’s frivolous internet drama or aggressively entrapping teenage boys in the phony baloney “Base” just so career-whore Christopher Wray can gin up a problem for which Zionists at the ADL have already written up a solution.

Patriot Front’s rally proves the importance of public demonstrations in winning hearts and minds, as well as showing our oppressors that we are not afraid of them. When juxtaposed to what “antifa” has been up to, many people on the fence finally began to understand that the media is lying to them about who the good and bad guys are. “#AntifaTerrorists dominated social media yesterday.

No anarchists, no violence. It’s hard to believe this has to even be said, but now there is a real life side-by-side comparison that will aid us all in the fight to save our people and our Constitutional rights.

  1. Please stop misusing the word anarchist.

    Anarchism is an anti-authoritarian political and social philosophy that rejects hierarchy as unjust and advocates its replacement with self-managed, self-governed societies based on voluntary, cooperative institutions.

    Anarchists do not advocate violence.

    “The equation is simple: no anarchists, no violence.”

    B.S. Another “strawman” er, “argument”.

    The “anarchists” of Portland are not anarchists [ie non-violent , pro self-government,voluntarists] at all.

    Just about every one of them is a foaming at the mouth lover of the violence of the big state/big government and therefor uncompromisingly for the installation of a wholly totalitarian fascist/communist dictatorship that runs everyones lives for them [at the point of guns, no less], according to their own half-baked, collectively idiotic, fantasies.

    True, but how many of those promoting violence would turn out to be government agents themselves? One never knows what sort of games are being played here. Back in the 60’s FBI “informant” Gary Thomas Rowe may have been the one who actually shot Viola Liuzzo and not just egged on the others at the very least. Not much has changed. The purpose is to create these situations so the government can gather more power into its hands as its already done. We pretty much have a hidden dictatorship in place now. Lots of people get sucked into these government created groups and events and are fair prey in whatever follows. Who are these antifa rank and file anyway and where do they come from? Who is recruiting them, where, how, do they get paid? Leftie types on campus are usually kind of metro yet these antifa are street-fighter guys? Something doesn’t add up here.

    Doubt seriously that most see themselves as “anarchists”. They genuinely believe they are “social justice warriors”. This belief is greatly reinforced by the fact that the State has given them licence, legitimacy & latitude. I doubt many of them question this State legitimisation — if they had a brain they would be nearly sick with worry what State encouragement actually means. Or, alternatively, they’re more than happy to be someone’s “useful idiots”.
    And what fun, bash people up in public, avoid any legal consequences AND have a good conscience about it all.
    Or maybe they’re just a pack of vicious bastards….

  10. Kali says:
    @Futurethirdworlder

    Nah.

    Ignorance and constant misrepresenting of the term has distorted the meaning of Anarchy in the public consciousness.

    The ideology of self-rule and voluntary association remains the same. Regardless.

    Anarchy is the state of a society being freely constituted without authorities or a governing body. It may also refer to a society or group of people that totally rejects a set hierarchy.[1]

    The word anarchy was first used in 1539, meaning “an absence of government”.[2] Pierre-Joseph Proudhon adopted the term in his 1840 treatise What Is Property? to refer to anarchism, a new political philosophy which advocates stateless societies based on voluntary associations.

    The term “ethics-free ideologues” is a simplistic label used by the Violent Lefties, such as yourself, to distract from their promotion of violence.

  13. “Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is lost
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst are filled with passionate intensity.”

    Yeats wrote that 100 years ago a few years after an anarchist assassinated Mckinley and 100 years later self proclaimed anarchists are causing havoc in the street.

    Your particular utopian fantasy is retarded and to waste your time on it is stupid. Nothing to thank you for.

  15. See a lot of triggered Anarchists in the comments (probably Libertarians, another Jewish materialist philosophy of Mises, Rand, Rothbard, and Friedman).
    Honestly, it doesn’t matter whether Antifa or ‘An-Caps’ are the ‘Real Anarchists’ because neither has ever, or will ever, produce a successful collectivist entity capable of affecting the course of history in any meaningful way.

    The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it. –Karl Marx

    Even Communists who are often derided in these circles have a far better track record–the Soviet Union had a vast empire and sent man into space before anyone else.
    It’s almost like some people here still haven’t grown out of Jordan Peterson and ‘Individualism’. It’s 2020 now and that fraud is past his due date and needs to go to rehab. hose who fail to organise collectively on the basis of that which is real and transcendent–FAITH, FAMILY, and FOLK–will be consigned to the ashheap of history.

    Thank you.

    However, only in the Washington Post article do any self-identify as “anarchist,” and even that article shows that the use of violence is controversial among that group. Read as a whole, your Establishment sources appear to be scripted propaganda — notice how similarly several begin. Someone is striving to alter the definition to, in effect, anyone opposed to the “Alt Right” who crosses the line into criminality. A clever way both to keep Antifa’s skirts clean and to smear anarchy.

    None of these “establishment sources” are interested in smearing anarchists or antifa. All of these are positive pieces. The anarchists are doing what they have done for 200 years, acting as a militant wing for liberals.

    Maybe this will be anti establishment enough for ya, comrade.

  20. Most of what gets called “anarchists” these days aren’t anarchist in the least, they’re authoritarian leftists – usually Marxist-Leninist-Maoists. And if they’re wearing the black bloc uniform, you don’t really know who they are. A number, sometimes a sizable number, will be cops, which is why they can do their thing, then run back behind police lines. Those aren’t anarchists, those are government shock troops. Most of the rest are Maoists, they’re effectively brainwashed, by indoctrination from tax-supported professors in community colleges and universities. And they’re all about hierarchy and domination – that’s what they do and that’s how they’re run. They have leaders – the “leadership vanguard” – who tell them what to do out in the street and they’ve been conditioned to take orders and act on them. That’s not an anarchist thing, that’s an anti-anarchist thing. Anarchists oppose hierarchy and domination. And just because the mainstream media tell you they’re anarchists doesn’t mean that they are in fact anarchists – mainstream media have been known to tell lies, especially lies which serve their owners.

    “No anarchists, no violence.” Spoken like a true totalitarian bug man! Just like insects don’t do violence in their soulless hives, if everyone is a domesticated drone they are unable to even imagine resisting the actual bourgeois capitalist rulers who own everything and cause the deaths of countless people everyday…but liberals don’t care about structural or systemic violence, they’re just mindless drones who hate dissent.

    The SPLC is a discredited hate group. (1)

    The most recent SPLC controversy involves labeling the Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF. Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a speech to ADF last week and was immediately vilified by the left wing media such as ABC for associating with an alleged hate group. How ridiculous.

    Alliance Defending Freedom was founded to “advocate for the rights of people to peacefully and freely speak, live and work according to their faith and conscience without threat of government punishment.”

    Being on their list is often a badge of honor.

    It would be inappropriate to note the misuse of “anarchist”, without noting the misuse of “fascist”. Any honest examination of fascism would show that it is only “right” if you are a communist.

    And what do you have to offer besides pointless sniping and sarcasm, Kindkaiser? Marx?

    The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it. –Karl Marx

    Indeed it is. Though the changes Marx himself brought to the political West appear to have been consigned to the “asheap of history”, alongside the millions murdered in the name of his own political philosophy, wouldn’t you say?

    Even Communists who are often derided in these circles have a far better track record–the Soviet Union had a vast empire and sent man into space before anyone else.

    Ooooo! Space… they put a man in space! Well, I guess it kept the cimrades minds from the gulags at keast. And here we all are, on Earth, a whole new millennium further along, watching helplessly as mankind itself stands on the brink of the political abyss brought about by generations of “us v them” “left v right” black v white” bullshit.

    So yeah, the point really is to to change things -before humanity itself is thus consigned to the asheap of history.

    But without a fundamental change in thinking (which, remember, is shaped by language) were all fucked!

    To that end, ensuring that Anarchist philosophy is properly recognised and understood for what it is, rather than constantly, incessantly being presented as “libertarianism” or as mindless meat-hended violence would be a good start.

    If the public actually knew what Anarchism is, their own political views may actually broaden beyond the mind-numbing red v blue bullshit we’ve all been subjected to all of our lives, and things might indeed, at long last, change!

    Anarchy actually offers a real, tangible alternative to the status quo. But until and unless it is properly understood for what it is, nothing will change and the incessant March “left-right-left-right…” will bring us to the end of human history. – Nice asheap you’very got lined-up for us there, Dude.

    So you keep up the “good fight” comrade Kaiser; sniping from the sidelines, bringing nothing of value to the conversation but a nostalgic look-back at the fucking space-race. – A nice show for the “family and folks” to distract them from their social and economic straights and imminent destruction.

    Anachy: no hierarchy, just voluntary association between individuals and groups (“family and folks”) established for the mutual benefit of all concerned, dissolved harmlessly when it longer serves, rules of association decided and agreed by the associates. An organisational structure which can apply as easily to huge collectivist ventures as to small cooperative associations.

    None-violent by its very nature.

    [T]hose who fail to organise collectively on the basis of that which is real and transcendent–FAITH, FAMILY, and FOLK–will be consigned to the ashheap of history.

    Couldn’the agree more!

    The self proclaimed anarchists who organize collectively are and always have been, the violent unthinking lumpenproles who are used by the capitalist class as shock troops against the proletariat.

    Please consider if you are wasting your time and energy on an ideology that has never resisted political power but has been used by the politically powerful to suppress those who might.

    Please consider that we were all teenagers once and went through an anarchy, anarcho capitalism, libertarian phase but recognized it as a political dead end.

  29. @ert

    I’m certainly not shocked that an anarchist would attempt to discredit an enemy of the political class with a smear from a powerful politically connected institution. That isn’t shocking at all.

  30. @Curmudgeon

    I agree with you. The F-word has been bastardized. “Fascist” has devolved into an emotional insult that means nothing more than “I don’t like you. You suck.”

    I tend to think of fascism as the merging of corporate and state power, a la Mussolini.

    I think “right” and “left” have also been thrown around so haphazardly that these words too have lost meaning. The only real usefulness of these words is to divide and conquer. Team Red. Team Blue.

    Go Team!

    I don’t know much about Ezra Pound. I don’t know if he was really a fascist sympathizer.

    Seems like he was simply an influential heretic.
