If you support the Second Amendment, oppose mob anarchy and reject the monumental madness gripping America, then you stand with Steven Baca.

If you have been outraged by the persecution and prosecution of brave patriots across the country defending their homes, their families, our downtowns, our national heritage and history—like the armed St. Louis couple, or the armed pregnant Michigan mom, or the armed citizens in the Fishtown suburb of Philadelphia, Boise, Idaho, and Provo, Utah, facing down the saboteurs of civil order, then you stand with Steven Baca.

On June 15, Steven and several other friends and neighbors gathered peacefully at Tiguex Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to protect a statue of Spanish conquistador Juan de Onate targeted by agitators identified as Black Lives Matter protesters. What does Onate have to do with St. George Floyd or any of the other clients of race hustler Benjamin Crump? Nothing. The coordinated violence and chaos unleashed by a toxic convergence of BLM, antifa, jobless college students and garden-variety cop-haters have nothing to do with black lives. Or with “justice.” Or police brutality. Or equality.

It’s all about making money, securing power and reimagining this nation by eradicating every vestige of the settlers, pioneers, colonizers and founders who made America America.

Esther Rivera, a 14th-generation mixed Hispanic and Native American grandmother from Albuquerque, showed up to guard the memorial. “I wasn’t there to protest,” she told me: “I was there to pray for peace and the preservation of these statues and preservation of historical art… If we start pulling these down and renaming buildings and burning books, that’s fascism.”

During the melee at Tiguex Park, as agitators wielded pickaxes and strapped chains to the Onate statue, several belligerent women verbally assaulted Rivera. Some screamed falsely that she was a cop, stirring anger among the cop-hating BLM mobsters. In several videos of the toppling of the Onate statue, at least two of the thuggish protesters can be seen laying hands on Rivera. She told me one woman tried to steal her phone. As she was pushed to the ground, Baca tried to rescue her. A swarm of women blocked Baca and multiple videos show him trying to peel the women off of him and Rivera. He was a defender, not an aggressor.

Then the scene turned uglier. As the savages ripped the statue from its pedestal, unidentified assailants screamed falsely that Baca was a cop. “I’m gonna f—ing kill you,” another yelled. Baca can be seen retreating from the crowd, separated from Rivera. He ran into the street, where several rioters beat him in the head and body with a large longboard and other unidentified objects. At least one video appears to show an assailant wielding a switchblade or knife.

That is when Baca drew his weapon and fired several shots at his attackers. Initially charged with felony aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, Baca was held in jail for a week before the Bernalillo County district attorney Raul Torrez dropped that charge.

Baca’s justified self-defense is plain as day to anyone who watches the videos.

ORDER IT NOW

Here’s the thing: This story is far from over. Baca still faces potential reintroduction of the felony weapons charge, as well as aggravated battery charges involving three women—none of whom have come forward, none of whom the D.A. has located and all of whom can be seen on camera laying hands on Baca and Rivera first.

Here’s another thing you need to know: Torrez is not just any run-of-the-mill D.A. He’s one of dozens of George Soros-subsidized subversives who could put “social justice” above equal justice. A Soros front group called the “New Mexico Safety & Justice” PAC—pro-criminal, pro-rioter, anti-cop, anti-Second Amendment—dumped more than $107,000 into Torrez’s campaign in 2016.

Tim Keller, the Albuquerque mayor who has spent the past eight weeks pandering to BLM, defamed Baca as the agitator. The head of the police union, however, condemned city leaders for creating an “operations plan” that tied the hands of cops, who were “spat upon” and had rocks thrown at them as they tried to secure the riot and crime scene.

I had the privilege of meeting Steven this Independence Day weekend. He is a gentle soul, overwhelmed by his predicament but grateful for the outpouring of grassroots support. “We now have to wait for the district attorney to complete the investigation. We do not know how long this will take,” he told me. “I stand ready to have my conduct and the conduct of others at the protest fully and thoroughly reviewed.”

If you stand with Steven Baca, I have created a crowdfunding campaign that you can donate to at: https://fundly.com/stand-with-steven-baca .

This isn’t just one statue and one armed American’s freedom at stake. If you believe in the sacred right of self-defense and the sovereignty of our nation, then we are all Steven Baca now.

  1. Thank you for using your bully pundit-pulpit to rally support for Mr. Baca, Mrs. Malkin! I also understand that this is not just for the one guy. Once we support our own (the actual patriotic Americans that ready to resist the racism and Communism working to finish the destruction of America), the rest of us can be more confident in our resistance.

    Right now, with the Anarcho-Tyranny dialed up to 11, it’s very hard to have any confidence that even Americans who agree with you will lift a finger or raise a voice in support. There are lots of cowards among us, and not without reason. We need to take away the reasons for some to be scared of speaking up by letting the other side know that we will back up our own. In the meantime, those of us with some minor F.U. money or just old enough to not really give a rat’s ass, should speak up and give no quarter.

    I’m doing my part. I don’t need so many friends.

    Keep up the great work, Michelle Malkin.

  2. “If violent crime is to be curbed, it is only the intended victim who can do it. The felon does not fear the police, and he fears neither judge nor jury. Therefore what he must be taught is to fear is his victim.” – Col. Jeff Cooper, in Principles of Personal Defense

    i've often wondered what Col. Cooper would make of the presnt situation. Today, not only do violent felons not fear the police or the criminal justice system, the intended victim who resists successfully must fear them.

  3. “Dozens of George Soros-subsidized subversives” who are tearing down our country. Honestly, the GOP should be screaming at the top of their lungs, explaining in clear English to everyone who isn’t political exactly what is going on via ads, speeches, etc. Not the annoying, idiotic cookie-cutter political ads, but serious educational ads. But alas, the GOP cowards are worthless. There is no good reason why these people are being elected outside of incompetence on the other side. Yes, Soros has the money, but c’mon!
    By the same token, the President of the USA needs to step away from Twitter for a moment and should be clearly defining what the enemy is doing. Trump is partially known as speaking to the every day citizen, but outside of 3-4 speeches (which I’d guess he didn’t write), he’s generally terrible at explaining what needs to be heard.
    Wouldn’t it be great if instead of bragging about his whatever or complaining about whatever during his rallies, Trump would elucidate the greatest issues facing the USA and explain what everyone needs to do? The rallies should be used as a great tool to educate, motivate and inspire….what a wasted resource!
    But more than rallies, address the nation. We’re at a very serious moment in history!
    I miss having a Reagan-esque president who capably instilled patriotism in the country and had the verbal skills that are sorely needed today.

    I couldn't have put it better myself--your insights and my frustrations.

  4. Just like this man, many of us will have to face prosecution for defending ourselves from violent communists. Just as the tens of millions murdered in Eastern Europe. Most of us will have our own private war against the hijacked government. We will be thrown into the meatgrinder. Defend yourselves no matter the consequences. Things will get much worse. We will fight back. And we will win. First we must stand up and say Enough!

  5. Small correction: Fishtown is not a suburb of Philadelphia. It is very much in the city. A white neighborhood that has withstood the invading dark hordes that came to Philly in the 60’s. Traditionally blue collar it has undergone some gentrification in the past 10 years because rents were low. The artsy types wanted a safe place to live in Philly. Now it’s not so inexpensive.
    Growing up in and around Philly my whole life you knew not to mess with people from Fishtown.

  6. Thank you, Michelle, for giving us updates on Steven Baca’s situation. I made a small donation to his legal defense fund at Fundly, and I hope others here are moved to do the same. We cannot trust the justice system anymore–it’s been compromised–so we have to support one another. And if you don’t have any money at the moment, just say a prayer for Steven.

  7. I have heard that GoFundMe cancelled the appeal for money for the Wuestenbergs, the couple in Michigan who are charged with felony assault after being harassed by three black women outside a Chipotle’s restaurant.

  9. What is the reason or what are the reasons given for pulling down the statue of Juan de Onate at this time? Was he involved with slavery or oppression? Or was it motivated by a desire for political or economic gain by the participants? This is not a rhetorical question, nor is there any hidden agenda for me in asking these truly open questions.

  11. Whites are like the magnet that pulls the world.

    White Magnet must be disarmed so that Diversity can make itself to whites.

  12. I’m glad that Ms. Malkin set up this avenue for supporting Mr. Baca. I didn’t know that the DA is a Soros Borg, which makes financial support for this man’s right to self-defense all the more urgent.

  13. I have donated myself, and passed on the appeal to other mailing lists with my recommendation. I hope Baca’s defense fund swells like Shelley Luther’s.
