I woke up Saturday to watch the Charlottesville riots and tragedy unfold. At first I read what the mainstream media said, then started watching raw footage. The last few days I turned to alternative media sources for commentary for different opinions. I started to realize that 90% of the accounts held a little truth and a lot things wrong. Some of the “Unite the Right” attendees attended with the purpose of free speech. Many also showed up with the intent to brawl. Antifa and Black Lives Matter definitely came with the intent to brawl. The police appear to have had orders to stand down. The police definitely seem to have designed the situation to maximize the possibility of brawling. It seems almost everyone is guilty. To me, the Charlottesville narrative is completely bogus.
The “Unite the Right” rally was plagued with problems from the beginning. The event organizers were Jason Kessler and Richard Spencer who both belong to white nationalist movements. When the city of Charlottesville denied them the permit to hold the rally, Jason Kessler turned to the federal courts. The ACLU, a leftist organization with some ethical standards actually argued for Jason Kessler. Kessler had an actual line up of various right leaning speakers planned for the rally. For white nationalists, alt right, or neo-nazis to congregate peacefully and speak should be protected and honored. The federal judge ruled in favor of the “Unite the Right” rally being held. I believe that was a correct decision.
Everything that happened after the court decision spiraled badly out of control. First I will take the Friday night tiki torch march. If Jason Kessler wanted really bad optics, the Friday night torch march succeeded.
Watching hundreds of white guys march around with torches while chanting “white lives matter”, “blood and sand”, and other such nonsense is disturbing. This is something I would expect to read about in history books discussing the rise of fascism in the 1930s. The slogans are the same and the optics are the same. For Kessler to think this night march was a good idea is just plain stupid. The morons that marched in the crowd proudly chanting became losers by earning equal stupidity points.
I am still not sure if the Friday night torch march was part of the judge approved protest. Granted, the torch wielding protesters committed no arson. They may have sounded stupid and looked menacing, but until a few Antifa people showed up at the end of the march, there was no violence. Unfortunately, every time Antifa, or the “anti-fascist” movements show up, there is almost always violence. If Kessler was trying to do something good for his movement with the Friday night torch march, he failed badly. I’ll get into Jason Kessler later, because he is a questionable character.
The events of Saturday morning before the planned noon rally were dispicable. The police appear to have intentionally pushed the “Unite the Right” rally into a small enclosed space subject to being attacked with projectiles. Antifa and Black Lives Matter showed up with flag poles, baseball bats, bottles filled with concrete, mace, bear mace, and many other weapons. Many of the “Unite the Right” protesters came with helmets, shields, clubs, and other weapons. Right leaning protesters were forced by the police to walk through the Antifa protesters to get to their designated protest area. The police, all 1,000 of them stood back and did nothing as the violence began. In fact, the police retreated and disappeared as the violence began. Then things got really ugly.
In the “Unite the Right” protesters defense, I will point out recent events in Berkeley California. Antifa violently attacked Trump supporters standing in line to attend a Milo Yiannopoulos speech. Multiple people were beaten unconscious and more had to go to the hospital. Then Trump supporters attempted to hold multiple “free speech” rallies in Berkeley only to be violently attacked by Antifa. Berkeley police stood down and allowed Antifa to commit multiple felony assaults. The Trump supporters and free speech advocates finally decided to arm up and defend themselves. This led to the “Battles for Berkeley” and a resounding beat down of Antifa. That created an outcry by the mainstream media and the police to finally start doing their jobs. That allowed the final “Battle of Berkeley” to be a peaceful free speech rally.
Walking into Charlottesville, the right leaning groups knew they were walking into hostile territory. The Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer declared his city “capital of resistance” against the President Trump. He also led the action to get the statue of Robert E. Lee removed giving the cause for the “Unite the Right” rally. After winning in court, Jason Kessler actually believed that the police would protect his rallies participants and allow them to speak freely. Quite obviously, judging from the fact that only 500 attended and most of them were heavily armed, most of the attendees didn’t feel the same reassurance. Watching the raw footage, many of the right leaning protesters seemed just as intent on causing violence once they were attacked by Antifa.
When you look at the content of the groups that attended the “Unite the Right” rally, I agree most of them I don’t support. The white nationalist groups that dominate the planned attendees, I find little better than the “anti-fascists”. The “anti-fascists” are violent communists and anarchists who openly declare it is fine to punch anyone they deem a NAZI.

The Southern Nationalists, White Nationalists, and Alt Right groups all identify that by being white, and believe they are being victimized by the left because of their skin color. Unfortunately there is a lot of truth in that. College organizations are calling for non-white days and spaces. Liberal college professors are attacked when they point out that is racist. Then you can listen to the equally racist chants that come from Black Lives Matter and Antifa groups and know they are anti-white. Stunningly enough, the DNC itself talks horribly of white people in setting their policies.
Really? “White people need to shut up.” The feral left is creating the angry right. Feral leftists are a recruiting poster inviting retaliation from the right.
Before I get into how bogus this entire narrative is, I am going to finish the story of what happened on Saturday.
After the police ran away and the violence due to Antifa attacking and White Nationalists counter attacking, a state of emergency was declared. The riot police magically reappeared and told the “Unite the Right” protesters that they were now an unlawful assembly. The police completely ignored the fact that the Antifa protesters never got permits. They ignored that the violence was initiated by the insanely violent leftists. In breaking up the legal protest, the police then forced the participants to exit through the illegal crowd of Antifa and Black Lives Matters scum. This caused more fighting and injuries.
The “Unite the Right” protesters finally got away and Antifa and Black Lives Matters protester marched the streets in victory. That led to the real tragedy of the day. As feral and violent as the Antifa people can be, so can the morons attracted to White Nationalist groups be.
James Alex Fields Jr. was arrested by police after intentionally driving his car into a crowd of counter protesters. It was a brutal and cowardly attack. Fields belongs to a white nationalist movement, but is only an individual. It appears he acted on his own and with the purpose to severely injure and kill as many people as possible. He deserves the electric chair for his actions.
Unfortunately, his action has given the leftist mainstream media and politicians the ammunition they wanted to prove violence by the right. None of the news stories coming out of mainstream media admit the Antifa protesters were an illegal gathering. They try to claim the fighting occurred on both sides equally. Mainstream media refuses to report that Antifa and Black Lives Matter initiated the violence. Media also refuses to ask why the police did not do their jobs from the beginning. If the police starting making arrests when the first bottle filled with concrete was thrown, I don’t think the violence would have continued. Now it appears that the police were ordered to stand down.
ACLU confirms that police were given stand-down order. This invited the violence the city used to shut down a court-permitted protest. https://t.co/FQUhcYaIIm

If the leftist mayor of Charlottleville, Mike Signer did issue a stand down order, he is the reason for the violence. In a phone interview with Alex Jones on Sunday Aug 13th, Jason Kessler stated his intent on suing the city of Charlottesville. If after securing the court’s ruling allowing the legal protest, the Charlottesville police were ordered not to protect the protests, whoever issued that order is guilty of enabling a riot. They are the person ultimately responsible for 3 deaths and 35 people going to the hospital. Hopefully Kessler will follow through with his suet and the truth will be exposed.
Then we get to Jason Kessler’s background. The Southern Poverty Law Center issued a report claiming that Kessler was formerly in the Occupy movement and an Obama supporter. Kessler’s switch from an extreme leftist ideology to an extreme right ideology only became apparent in Nov 2016. That makes me ponder Kessler’s real reasoning for holding a far right rally in such a hostile location. He had to know of Mayor Signer’s extreme leftist politics. University of Virginia has hardly been tolerant of conservative groups. It makes me wonder if Kessler chose the location in hopes of inciting such violence. By pretending to be a far right extremist, he may have lured the local extreme right morons who wanted to defend themselves violently right into a trap.
I know this may sound conspiratorial, but what if Kessler is a plant? The Friday night torch march looked very similar to similar marches held in the Ukraine in 2013. Lee Stranaham did a very good podcast explaining how George Soros foundations fund the leftists in Antifa, who use the same tactics of the fascists that overthrew the Ukraine’s legally elected government in 2013. Unfortunately YouTube erased Stranahams material this week making it difficult to find his assessment. Kessler’s torch march mimicked the torch marches of the fascists in the Ukraine. Those fascists in the Ukraine also received funding from Soros foundations. Perhaps Kessler’s plan ultimately worked? Maybe Kessler works for Soros?
Here is the reason I bring this up. Trump came out early on Saturday and issued a statement condemning the violence in Charlottesville. He said this.
“We condemn in strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence — on many sides.”
That statement on the day of the violence was important for several reasons. First President Trump did not have all of the facts. What he did know was that the hatred, bigotry, and violence was being conducted by many sides. The mainstream media seized on the fact that Trump did not condemn only the rioters on the right. Media ignored that the communists and anarchists of Antifa and Black Lives Matters started the violence. They did this to undermine the legitimacy of President Trump and it is dishonest.
Trump condemned everyone involved in the violence for good reason. The far left showed up create violence. The White Nationalists and Alt Right showed up prepared to instantly retaliate and make the violence worse. Information was still developing around the guy who drove his car into a crowd. I doubt Trump knew that the police most likely were given stand down orders. Nor do I think Trump knew the police appeared to have set up the “Unite the Right” protest so that it was subject to direct attack. Trump showed he would not be drawn in to pick a side. He instead condemned all sides in the violence.
The media and neoconservative and progressive establishment politicians had no problem picking sides. They only blamed those trying to hold a lawfully permitted rally for all of the violence. To them the leftist violence is okay because they are only punching NAZIS. But what exactly is a NAZI to them? In Berkeley a NAZI was any person who supported our 1st Amendment right to free speech. During the inauguration on Jan 20th, a NAZI was anyone attending who supported Trump. In Charlottesville the groups attending were far closer to the definition of NAZI. I don’t agree with Jason Kessler or Richard Spencer’s politics, but I have never heard them call for violence. The leftists of Antifa have a very broad definition of NAZI.
The oddest part of Antifa’s ideology comes from the fact they don’t know was NAZIs are. Fascism adopted by Mussolini and Hitler had its roots in socialism. The communists in Antifa choose to support their cause of socialism by centering on class differences. Since whites are portrayed as the haves, they are hated for being more affluent than other minorities. What fascists do is practice their form of socialism by identifying as groups or nationality. They say “I am a victim because I am white, therefore I will join the Alt Right because they will represent my race.” Funny enough by that definition Black Lives Matters is actually fascist. They say, “I am a victim of police violence because I am black, therefore I will join BLM because they fight against police violence against my race.”
Both communism and fascism are actually socialist totalitarian ideologies. Those ideologies closely mirror welfare state, high taxation, and smothering regulation beliefs of the progressives. They also mirror the police state, spy on everyone, and control what you do in the bedroom ideology of the neoconservatives. Since Antifa looks to destroy the 1st Amendment, therefore silencing actual conservatives like the Tea Party and Libertarian minded or Classical Liberal minded people like me the Antifa are excused and protected for violating the law. They use the excuse that Antifa only attacked the Alt Right and White Nationalists as an excuse to press for more censorship. Because the Alt Right and White Nationalists got lured into fighting back, they use a tragic death caused by a crazy person to undermine the Trump White House and to silence sane Americans.
The truth of Charlottesville is that it was an orchestrated attack against Trump supporters and Constitutional advocates. Antifa was used to incite violence to trigger a mentally challenged person into committing murder. The left and the neoconservative right wanted the optics of a heinous act to undermine the President, and to demonize his base. The mainstream media is all too complicit on relaying that message. Alternative media is too disorganized to figure out how they finally got played. It took 9 months, but the establishment got their talking points.
The political and corporate establishment desperately want to stay in control. They have been funding groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter for a long time now. They have grown out of the Occupy movement. Occupy was used for the purpose of deflection. The establishment politicians stole taxpayer money to bail out the too big to fail banks. They wanted to hide that theft, so used the Occupy movement to blame the 1% for bad economic conditions. Occupy was used to blame the actual producers of wealth that employ the majority of Americans for the recession happening.
Now Occupy has become Black Lives Matter and Antifa. They claim to be fighting police racism and violence and to be combating fascists. What they are really trying to do is destroy the Trump Presidency and silence the 63 million voices that overthrew the establishment in November. The inauguration, Battles for Berkeley, and Charlottesville have all had the purpose of goading the right into violent retaliation. The Southern Nationalists, White Nationalists, and Alt Right are all close enough to actually being fascists and the establishment got the violence it wanted.
Watch out, they will now press for more censorship and use this event to shut down legit protests by the right. They will use Trump blaming both the alt left and alt right for the violence to paint Trump as a racist. It will be used as another reason to spy on Americans, silence the public, and impeach or censor Trump.
