Proud Boys Deem Portland A Success Because Trump Sided With Right-Wing Extremists

Huff Post.

“Look at Trump’s Twitter … he’s watching antifa. That’s all we wanted,” boasts former Infowars staffer and protest organizer Joe Biggs

A former Infowars staffer who organized the Proud Boys protest in Portland Saturday deemed the “mission” a success Saturday because President Donald Trump sided with the right-wing extremist group against the anti-fascist “antifa.”

“Go look at President Trump’s Twitter,” Joe Biggs told the Oregonian (see the video above). “He talked about Portland, said he’s watching antifa. That’s all we wanted. We wanted national attention, and we got it. Mission success.”

Biggs said he was pleased with the relatively peaceful day between the Proud Boys — which describes its members as “western chauvinists” — and counter-protesters, who included antifa activists. Portland police reported that at least 13 people were arrested and six were injured.

The Proud Boys who organised the racist march:

The Proud Boys is a far-right neo-fascist[9][10] organization that admits only men as members and promotes political violence.[2][11][12][13] It is based in the United States and has a presence in CanadaAustralia, and the United Kingdom.[14][15] The group was started in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder and former commentator Gavin McInnes, taking its name from the song “Proud of Your Boy” from the Disney film Aladdin.[16][17] Proud Boys emerged as part of the alt-right, but in early 2017, McInnes began distancing himself from the alt-right, saying the alt-right’s focus is race while his focus is what he defines as “Western values”. This re-branding effort intensified after the Unite the Right Rally.[18][19]

This their presentation:

The Proud Boys are a men’s organization founded in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes. McInnes has described the Proud Boys as a pro-Western fraternal organization for men who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world; aka Western Chauvinists.

Proud Boys‘ values center on the following tenets:

Minimal Government
Maximum Freedom
Anti-Political Correctness
Anti-Drug War
Closed Borders
Anti-Racial Guilt
Anti-Racism
Pro-Free Speech (1st Amendment)
Pro-Gun Rights (2nd Amendment)
Glorifying the Entrepreneur
Venerating the Housewife
Reinstating a Spirit of Western Chauvinism

This caught my attention, “the Proud Boys organization was launched in September 2016, on the website of Taki’s Magazine, a far-right publication for which Richard Spencer was executive editor.”

There is a whole chapter on Richard B.Spencer in Key Thinkers of the Radical Right . Behind the New Threat to Liberal Democracy .(Edited by Mark Sedgwick 2019. Oxford.), Richard B. Spencer and the Alt Right by Tamir Bar-On. 

The Proud Boys say they are “not alt right”.

But their ideas seem to echo many of alt right Spencer’s themes.

He is absolutely barking,

Leftists (who sometimes understand us better than we understand ourselves) have always sensed this; they know that when we talk about immigration, we’re not really talking about immigration.

For us “immigration” is a proxy for race. In that way, immigration can be good or bad: it can be a conquest (as it seems now) . . . or a European in-gathering, something like White Zionism. It all depends on the immigrants. And we should open our minds to the positive possibilities of mass immigration from the White world.

And when White men talks about “restoring the Constitution”—or, more so, “Taking Our Country Back”— leftists and non-Whites are right to view this as threatening and racialist: it implies a return to origins and that the White man once owned America.

Today, in the public imagination, “ethnic-cleansing” has been associated with civil war and mass murder (understandably so). But this need not be the case. 1919 is a real example of successful ethnic redistribution—done by fiat, we should remember, but done peacefully.
The ideal I advocate is the creation of a White Ethno-State on the North American continent.

We must give up the false dreams of equality and democracy—not so that we could “wake up” to reality; reality is boring—but so that we can take up the new dreams of channelling our energies and labor towards the exploration of our universe, towards the fostering of a new people, who are healthier, stronger, more intelligent, more beautiful, more athletic.

And,

Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!”

That’s how Richard B. Spencer saluted more than 200 attendees on Saturday, gathered at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C., for the annual conference of the National Policy Institute, which describes itself as “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of  people of European descent in the United States, and around the world.”

Spencer has popularized the term “alt-right” to describe the movement he leads. Spencer has said his dream is “a new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans,” and has called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing.”

He thinks the march was “too weak”.

 

That the US President bows to their pressure is beneath contempt.

Spencer is said to be the person who created the term “alt right”, and is aligned with European Identitarians., although his call for a “white racial empire” is not widely, or publicly, shared on our continent.

Comrade Spencer Sunshine says,

SPENCER SUNSHINE: PROUD BOYS & THE RISE OF FAR RIGHT VIOLENCE

 

In this segment, I speak with Spencer Sunshine — researcher, journalist, activist, and political consultant regarding Far Right movements. Spencer discusses of the recent controversy surrounding Gavin McInnis, founder of the Proud Boys, and his invitation to speak at the Metropolitan Republican Club in New York City, in which a group of Proud Boys openly attacked protesters after the event. We discuss the lack of police interference in the beatings, and the overall trend in policing and law enforcement’s attitude toward Far Right movements in the US. We also discuss the differences and similarities between what has been defined as the “Alt-Right” and the “Alt-Lite,” and what these two camps of Far Right ideology have accomplished in the past year in the expansion and normalization of Far Right rhetoric and violence. We also discuss other strains of Far Right organization and ideology, including Joey Gibson and Patriot Prayer, as well the Left’s altogether lack of preparedness in addressing the looming threat posed by these groups.

Brexit Party: James Heartfield, (former..) Revolutionary Communist Party Cadre is Red-Brown Candidate Against Jeremy Corbyn.

with 19 comments

Red-Brown James Heartfield Amongst Many Brexit Party Candidates. 

 

Proud of being publicised in Breitbart Hearty links to this:

Brexit Party Ramps up the Pressure on Boris Johnson, Announces New Parliament Candidates

A Brexit Party MEP has reacted with anger to the suggestion that now Boris Johnson is Prime Minister the party should stand aside, insisting that the British people still need to hold politicians to account over the promised withdrawal from the European Union which still hasn’t happened.

Claire Fox, a new member of the European Parliament and, as a former member of the Revolutionary Communist Party a key example of the broad political coalition for Brexit Nigel Farage has built, reacted to the suggestion that the Brexit Party could now be merely dismissed by the government as the party announced 50 new candidates ready for a snap election……

 

……

The irony won’t be lost on Mr Corbyn himself, who has been a long-standing critic of the European Union but was apparently forced to drop his views after becoming the leader of the Labour Party. James Heartfield will stand for the Brexit Party in Corbyn’s constituency and said of being selected: “I’ve lived in Islington since the 1980s, working in the Council and now as a history teacher… Seeing the way the EU forced vicious austerity policies on Greece and Portugal convinced me we had to get out.

“Free from the EU Britain can make its own decisions about what kind of country it wants to be. I’ve been a Brexit Party supporter since it launched and urge anyone who believes in freedom and in democracy to join us.”

Comment.

Heartfield, a former RCP full-timer and self-styled ‘Marxist’ backer of sovereigntism, is one of those who have welded the Revolutionary Communist Party/Spiked network into the far-right national populist camp. There is debate pm whether he is attracted by the rewards of the Koch brothers or the glory of defending free-market Trump Toady Nigel Farage. Informed commentators agree that the bombastic academic, often called a ponce amongst ponces, represents the lowest form of political life. A true swine.

Updates from the Red-Front to follow….

At least four individuals standing for the Brexit Party are connected with the RCP/LM/Spiked network. James Heartfield (born James Hughes) was a RCP organiser who spent much of the ’80s and ’90s at the heart of the operation. He is standing in Islington North. Heartfield ran as an MEP in May and won’t have paid the £100.

His friend and one time colleague at Living Marxism, Stuart Waiton, also stood as an MEP and is now contesting Dundee West.

Another Spiked/LM writer, Canadian born Kevin Yuill, is hoping to be elected in Houghton and Sunderland South. Mr Yuill is a keen advocate of gun rights and has written tirelessly about how laws prohibiting the sale of weapons don’t stop gun massacres.

Then there’s comedian, performer and financial expert Dominic Frisby, a friend of Lesley Katon via the Comedy Unleashed circuit, who has contributed to Spiked podcasts when not writing ‘comical songs’ about the Brexit betrayal. Mr Frisby told me he applied to be an MEP but was too late and insisted that he did so through the online process like everyone else. But, as a Facebook friend of Ms Katon, it’s not impossible that his distinctive name will have leapt out from the thousands of other applicants.

That may also have been the case with Alaric Bamping, antiquarian bookseller and husband of writer Julia Hobsbawm OBE, who is another member of Claire Fox’s circle. Mr Alaric is hoping to become the MP for Dartford

El Paso Murderer’s Manifesto Praised Renaud Camus’ The Great Replacement.

“Hispanic community was not my target before I read The Great Replacement.”

Louis Proyect has the Manifesto in a more readable form: The manifesto of the El Paso white supremacist killer.

The Manifesto, as can be seen, begins with a reference to the French far-right Great Replacement of  Renaud Camus, ” nearly complete ethnic and cultural destruction brought to the Native Americans by our European ancestors, but this just reinforces my point. The natives didn’t take the invasion of Europeans seriously, and now what’s left is just a shadow of what was. My motives for this attack are not at all personal. Actually the Hispanic community was not my target before I read The Great Replacement. “

There appears to be no citation of the other modern  fascist classic, which is often taken as a call to arms, The Camp of the Saints (French: Le Camp des Saints) by Jean Raspail.

This reference is only now being reported in the Francophone media.

Le texte commence par un message de soutien à l’auteur de la tuerie de Christchurch en Nouvelle-Zélande, qui avait fait 51 morts dans deux mosquées. Ce dernier avait aussi publié un manifeste, qui mentionnait notamment la théorie d’extrême droite contestée du “grand remplacement”. Le texte publié samedi exprime des idées similaires.

Generation Identity “helps” the White Homeless in Scotland.

with one comment

Fascists from Generation Identity Copy French Génération Identitaire.

‘Hipster fascists’ feed only white homeless while spreading race hate message in Glasgow

The Daily Record reports.

A​n extremist​ mob​ dubbed “hipster fascists” has been​ spotted spreading their race hate message – by selecting whites only as they gave out meals to homeless people.

Generation Identity members ​sported their branded steward-like y​ellow jackets as they spoke to rough sleepers on Glasgow’s Buchanan Street.

The group’s appearance, which bucks the right-wing trend of shaven-headed thugs from groups such as the English Defence League and National Action, has led to it being nicknamed “Hipster Fascists”.

This is worth noting.

Professor Alberto Testa, a world expert on far-right radicalisation and terrorism, said: “Generation Identity are what I have previously called the fascists of the 21st century – the millennial fascists.

“They do seem to be becoming more active in Scotland. Scotland seems to be a major focus of attention for Generation Identity and other groups like the banned National Action.”

Testa, an associate professor in criminology at the University of West London, added: “Generation Identity is organised with almost a military kind of discipline, where the location of meetings are disclosed to members at the last minute via email.

It’s not just in Scotland and it’s not new.

Generation Identity are directly copying the tactics of the French movement they are aligned with.

Amongst their actions is exactly the same ‘help the homeless’ – only the white homeless – campaign, Génération Identitaire – Génération Solidaire !les nôtres avant les autres !” (our ain folk before the others).

Here one can see them wearing the same yellow jackets out to help the white homeless (SDF, sans domicle fixe)  in Metz.

 

 

The French far right group faces numerous court cases

 

This is their latest action : Hautes-Alpes: Génération Identitaire devant la justice après son opération médiatique «anti-migrants» (11.7.19)

Génération identitaire a bloqué le col de l'Echelle, dans les Hautes-Alpes, le 21 avril 2018, pour empêcher les migrants de passer.

The ideology of the “Les Identitaires” which the British Generation Identity shares, can be described as opposition to Globalisation, liberalism multiculturalism, extra-European immigration and in defence of national populism, and popular democracy. They support cultural homogeneity inside European Nations.

They also stand for traditional working class and popular culture, menaced by cosmopolitan oligarchies and rootless elites.

While some of the identitaires’ ideas can be traced to the French ideologue and novelist Maurice Barrès (1862 – 1923 and the need to stand for “la terre et les morts” (the Soil and the – ancestral – dead) others are based on the threat from immigration and the “grand replacement” of indigenous Europeans Renaud Camus.

The more violent wing is inspired by The Camp of the Saints by Jean Raspail.

The more violent wing is inspired by The Camp of the Saints  by Jean Raspail which imagines this,

The migrants make their way north, having no desire to assimilate to French culture, but continuing to demand a First World standard of living, even as they flout laws, do not produce, and murder French citizens, such as factory bosses and shopkeepers, as well as the ordinary people who do not welcome them. They are also joined by the immigrants who already reside in Europe, as well as various left-wing and anarchist groups. Across the West, more and more migrants arrive and have children, rapidly growing to outnumber whites. In a matter of months, the white West has been overrun and the pro-immigrant governments are established, while the white people are ordered to share their houses and flats with the immigrants. The village containing the troops is bombed flat by airplanes of the new French government, referred to only as the “Paris Multiracial Commune”. Within a few years, most Western governments have surrendered. The mayor of New York City is made to share Gracie Mansion with three African-American families from Harlem, migrants gather at coastal ports in West Africa and South Asia and swarm into EuropeAustralia, and New Zealand, London is taken over by an organization of non-white residents known as the “Non-European Commonwealth Committee” which force the British queen to have her son marry a Pakistani woman, millions of black Africans from around the continent gather at the Limpopo River and invade apartheid South Africa, and only one drunken Soviet soldier stands in the way of hundreds of thousands of Chinese peasants as they overrun Siberia.

The movement has grown  from their French origins to  Generazione Identitaria in Italy and Identitäre Bewegung in Germany, and elsewhere, including Britain.

Anti-Semite ‘Comedian’ Dieudonné Likely to do Community Service after Gaol Sentence for Tax Fraud.

with 3 comments

Dieudonné: Compares Jews to slave traders (négriers”)

French comedian Dieudonné courts controversy again after he was sentenced in Paris on Friday to two years in jail for tax fraud and money laundering. The sentence relates to more than one million euros of undeclared earnings.

Dieudonné, a convicted anti-Semite, was also slapped with a 200,000-euro fine. Under the court arrangement, he will likely do community service instead of jail time.

A highly popular comedian, especially in the low-income areas, he was found guilty in the past of condoning terrorism; in 2014, Prime Minister Manuel Valls once tried to shut down his performances, arguing they were a threat to public safety.

Police found 657,000 euros in cash in his home. Legally known as Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala, he and others sent 565,000 euros to Cameroon, where he has family members.
Dieudonné’s anti-Semitism acts include bringing a Holocaust denier on stage during a performance, decrying the “Zionist lobby” that rules the world. He made popular a hand gesture called the “quenelle”, which looks strikingly like a Nazi salute.

Radio France International.

As one would expect  many supporters attracted to his act have given backing to the racist tax cheat.

Strong support, born from years of close co-operation, came from Holocaust denier Alain Soral’s confusionist red-brown Site, Égalité et Réconciliation.

Dieudonné – Deux ans de prison ferme !

Apart from his “humour” about the Holocaust, “pornographie mémorielle’ (see also ‘Shoah nanas’ : Dieudonné condamné à 28 000 euros d’amende en appel) is known for his sketches on the theme that Jewish people organised the slave trade, See DIEUDONNE, LES JUIFS, ET LA TRAITE NEGRIERE

Dieudonné stood as part of this red-brown ”anti-Zionist‘ list in 2009 for the European elections with, amongst others, from Islamist racists like Yahia Gouasmi, Ultra-orthodox ‘anti-Zionist’ Rabbi  Shmiel Mordche Borreman, and, notably, Holocaust denier ‘Alain Soral.

The Red-Brown front – Spiked – defends Boris Johnson.

with 3 comments

Image result for brexit party meeting

Plebeian Cadres of the Red-Brown Front.

There is a new guru on the left.

Let’s call him  the Heg.

He has direct line of communication to the nether spheres where the red-brown front does its pondering.

Heg busy defending internationalist good sense in the Western borderlands, has many a string to his bow.

In a prescient post Heg, predicted that Brendan O’Neill would chew the carpet and start spitting nails against the female Greenpeace activist assaulted by Mark Field.

In last night’s scuffle between Conservative MP Mark Field and a Greenpeace protester, which of them was really behaving in an entitled manner?

We can guess the answer:

it wasn’t Field who displayed colossal levels of entitlement last night — it was the protesters. It was these increasingly smug and disruptive climate activists who behaved in a morally arrogant fashion.

The moral arrogance of the Mansion House climate protestors

Today, well, let’s say this from Brendan O’Neill today was amply predicted by the Man they call Mystic Heg.

The hacking of Boris Johnson’s home

The Guardian’s invasion of Boris’s privacy is a new low for broadsheet journalism.

Brendan O’Neill, ex-Revolutionary Communist Party.

The chattering classes are lapping it up. These are the kind of people who look down their noses at tabloid-reading plebs who like to hear about the private lives of celebs. Yet now they priggishly pore over the hacked conversation of a politician and his girlfriend and hold it up as proof of what foul or tragic people they are. The worst aspect is the naked sexism they’re displaying towards Ms Symonds. They decree, in their infinite wisdom, that she is a victim and should get the hell out.

The great man concludes, with this,

I hope they will agree that if the liberal broadsheets develop a habit of listening through the walls of private citizens’ homes, then both the right to a private life and the standards of journalism in this country will suffer badly.

After Backing anti-Gay Protests is Roger Godsiff Labour MP for the Chop?

with 2 comments

Protesters holding placards

Bigots still Demonstrating last week against Equality Teaching.

 

The row over gender equality teaching continues to grow.

The campaign is supported by Islamists, some parents, and the far-right StopRSE campaign against ‘sexual liberation’ and “cultural Marxism”.

This is the mixture of extreme right wing and Islamists latest statement (June the 7th).

Muslims against LGBT which we all know it isn’t ….

As Muslims or people of faith we do not need to justify that we are not homophobic – because we are not – in the same way that as Muslims we do not have to apologise for terror attacks – because we are not terrorists…. don’t fall into this trap of apologising for something you haven’t done as it deflects the conversation away from what needs to be discussed …

We are against RSE because it is a clear erosion of parental rights and a state take over of the parenting role which is one of the first steps of a totalitarian regime

We are against RSE because it is open to abuse by nefarious Lobby groups who will use it to push their own sexual ideologies into the classroom

Schools should be about education and that’s all …. ideology must not be allowed through the school gate

The sexual ideologues however are using RSE as a back door in to schools

Do not be fooled by the terms ‘inclusion, diversity, tolerance, equality etc – they have very specific definitions to those who use them than to the way in which the rest of us interpret them …

People are thankfully starting to wake up to the political machinations being played but we have to stay awake and not be lulled back into the warm water 🐸

StopRSE

The protests are continuing now with the backing of right-wing Labour MP Roger Godsiff.

Roger Godsiff reported to chief whip for telling campaigners protesting against LGBT lessons ‘you’re right’

A Labour MP has been reported to the chief whip for telling campaigners protesting against LGBT teaching at a Birmingham primary school “you’re right”.

Roger Godsiff, the MP for the city’s Hall Green constituency, which includes Anderton Park Primary school, also told protesters they had a “just cause” and criticised the headteacher.

The shadow education secretary, Angela Rayner, said she had reported the “discriminatory and irresponsible” comments to the chief whip, Nick Brown.

Parents have staged weeks of protests outside the school against the teaching of LGBT rights, claiming the lessons were “overemphasising a gay ethos” and contradicting Islam.

The demonstrations, which were described last week as “homophobic” by the West Midlands mayor, Andy Street, led the council to apply for a high court interim injunction, which banned rallies outside the gates from Friday.

Godsiff, who has previously said the equality lessons were not “age appropriate”, was seen telling the protesters they were “right” in a video that emerged this weekend.

The veteran MP, who is seen with Shakeel Afsar, the lead organiser of the protests, said: “I think you have a just cause and I regret the fact that it hasn’t been reciprocated by the headteacher.”

He asked demonstrators to consider calling off the protest as he said they had made their point, but added it would be their choice to do so. He then said: “I will continue to try and fight your corner because you’re right. Nothing more, nothing less. You’re right.”

Wes Streeting, the Labour MP for Ilford North, said he would be tabling a formal complaint to the party about Godsiff. He said: “This made me feel sick to my stomach. One of my own Labour colleagues stood with people who have peddled hatred and bigotry on school gates, intimidating pupils, teachers and parents.”

The Labour LGBT group also called for the whip to be removed and condemned Godsiff’s remarks “unreservedly and unequivocally”.

 

Birmingham LGBT row: MP reported after backing school protest

BBC.

The MP for a primary school facing protests over LGBT teaching has been reported to the chief whip after telling campaigners “you’re right”.

In a video circulated on social media, Birmingham Hall Green MP Roger Godsiff told the Anderton Park Primary School protesters they had a “just cause”.

Shadow education secretary Angela Rayner said she had reported the comments to the chief whip.

Mr Godsiff previously said the equality lessons were not “age appropriate”.

A High Court injunction is in place banning protests, which have been going on for months, outside the school.

Parents started to gather at the gates over concerns children were “too young” to learn about LGBT relationships. They also said the lessons contradicted Islam.

In the video, Mr Godsiff, who is seen with Shakeel Afsar, the lead organiser of the protests, said: “If I had the opportunity of rolling the clock back I would do exactly the same thing again.

“Because I think you have a just cause and I regret the fact that it hasn’t been reciprocated by the head teacher.”

Wikipedia.

In the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendum Godsiff supported the Leave campaign,[8] although his constituency voted by 66.4% to remain in the European Union.[1] Unusually for a Brexit-supporting MP, he abstained from the vote to invoke Article 50, to commence the UK’s process of withdrawal from the EU, on the grounds that he was respecting his constituents’ pro-Remain vote.

..

In 2011, The Guardian declared that based on his participation in votes, Godsiff was “Britain’s laziest MP”, being absent from 88% of votes at the start of that year. He has attended less than 50% of parliamentary debates during his whole time in office and refuses to take any part in hustings meetings.[14] He responded to the Birmingham Mail about his participation, saying “when you are in opposition and the government has a substantial majority, you know perfectly well that you aren’t going to be able to have an effect on every vote”.[15]

Godsiff opposed marriage equality in 2013, saying that he did not want to “[redefine] the current definition of marriage.”
