Black Lives Matter protesters shout down speech by…the ACLUJohn SextonPosted at 8:01 pm on October 4, 2017Share on FacebookShare on Twitter28Remember all the controversy over the ACLU of Virginia’s decision to defend the free speech rights of white supremacist groups in Charlottesville? Briefly, the city wanted to force protest away from downtown and the ACLU fought it on free speech grounds. After the day turned violent, the ACLU of Virginia’s executive director, Claire G. Gastanaga, put out a press release blaming the police for failing to protect people. The police handling of the protests in Charlottesville was denounced by people on both sides of the clashes, but this didn’t stop people on the left from writing think pieces blaming the ACLU for the violence and the death of Heather Heyer.See Also: Michael Moore: Hey, let’s repeal the ‘outdated’ 2nd AmendmentWhich brings us to today when Claire Gastanaga was scheduled to speak at William and Mary on the topic of “Students and the First Amendment.” Moments after she was introduced, a group of protesters affiliated with Black Lives Matter came to the stage and began shouting her down. From Reason: TRENDING: Statistician: After researching gun violence, I no longer believe in gun control Students took to the stage just a few moments after Gastañaga began her remarks. At first, she attempted to spin the demonstration as a welcome example of the kind of thing she had come to campus to discuss, commenting “Good, I like this,” as they lined up and raised their signs. “I’m going to talk to you about knowing your rights, and protests and demonstrations, which this illustrates very well. Then I’m going to respond to questions from the moderators, and then questions from the audience.”It was the last remark she was able to make before protesters drowned her out with cries of, “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too.” They also chanted, “the oppressed are not impressed,” “shame, shame, shame, shame,” (an ode to the Faith Militant’s treatment of Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, though why anyone would want to be associated with the religious fanatics in that particular conflict is beyond me), “blood on your hands,” “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution,” and, uh, “liberalism is white supremacy.”After twenty minutes, the protesters were handed a microphone and allowed to read a statement. When the statement was over, they continued chanting, refusing%2

Hilary Clinton has already come out for more gun control. The bodies are still warm, the injured are fighting for their lives, and she shows such “compassion”. Other Democrats are piling on as well.
From what I heard on the videos, this guy was using fully automatic weapons. I would like to know what in what jurisdiction these are legal. I suppose these idiots want to ban the fully automatic weapons.
Actually, their plans are much more insidious. They would probably ban any weapon that can be converted to fuilly automatic (as has already been done in New Jersey),
They would ban any long gun that could be used in a sniper situation. That would include most hunting rifles.
They would, of course, ban hand guns.
This leaves us with nothing but shotguns, muzzle loaders, and bb guns to defend ourselves with. Of course criminals will not comply with any of these laws. Perhaps they should ban criminals.
Perhaps they should mandate that everyone, not just gun owners, get mental health exams. Then the cops could raid suspect homes for any new contraband. While they’re at it they could round in any “fascists” that pose a danger to the government. Anyone who has been in jail, who is a gang member, or who is an illegal alien would be exempted.
They would ban the Constitution.
Are these scenarios far fetched? They have happened elsewhere. They could very well happen here unless we are vigilant.

Steven Crowder infiltrates Antifa at Ben Shapiro eventJohn SextonPosted at 3:21 pm on September 29, 2017Share on FacebookShare on Twitter14Wednesday I wrote about the far left’s plans to disrupt a speech by Ben Shapiro at the University of Utah. What I didn’t know is that YouTube host Steven Crowder and his producer had infiltrated a local Antifa group and captured them on tape discussing plans and handing out weapons.See Also: Will the NFL take a knee on this dirty hit?As you’ll see in this clip, Crowder’s producer Jared put on a disguise and met with members of Antifa who installed an app on his phone to allow them to communicate. The protest plan, according to the organizer, was “plain clothes and hard tactics.” That meant not dressing in black or wearing masks, which had been banned by police, but preparing for violence. At a subsequent meeting, one member of the group discusses the guns he has in his trunk. Another member hands Jared an ice pick. Jared immediately makes an excuse and takes the footage of local police who have already been monitoring the situation. Crowder ends the clip by focusing on the media. TRENDING: Steven Crowder infiltrates Antifa at Ben Shapiro event Crowder ends the clip by focusing on the media response. Local media see the video and are offered a copy but aren’t interested in airing it. Instead, they run a standard report about student protesters. But national media were also present and also saw the clip of Antifa members planning for violence and, according to Crowder, no one wanted the footage.Here’s my take on this. Media outlets are probably worried about getting scammed. They don’t know Crowder and the fact that he’s a YouTube host/comedian probably doesn’t inspire confidence. For all they know, the whole thing is a stunt and they probably don’t want to spend time or effort investigating. I’m not saying there’s no bias there, only that a local channel with a deadline and limited resources is probably less likely to go out on what looks like a limb.The situation with national media is very different. A Nightline producer has time and resources to take a tape like this and verify the facts, talk with police, even interview the people shown in the clip to get their side. So it’s hard to understand why someone like that wouldn’t be interested in this video, except of course that it makes Antifa look pretty bad. Perhaps if there had been some actual Nazis present to help balance the narrative, but as it is the only story here is far left%2
Who is oppressed? Those whose voices are heard (BLM and ANTIFA) or those whose are not (conservatives). Perhaps we, the silent majority, should defend ourselves violently. Would this fascist be in favor? I think not.

Antifa violence vitally worth doing, says NYU librarian Toni Airaksinen New York Campus Correspondent @Toni_Airaksinen Today at 9:51 AM EDT 33 171 0Reddit 0 A New York University librarian praised Antifa violence as “vitally worth doing” in an essay about the recent rise of violence on the far-left. April Hathcock argues that since “an explicitly peaceful movement” like Black Lives Matter faces “similar scrutiny” to Antifa, leftist protesters might as well employ violence in pursuit of their goals. A New York University librarian praised Antifa violence as “vitally worth doing” in an essay about the recent rise of violence on the far-left.April Hathcock, a Scholarly Communications Librarian at NYU, penned an essay “On Antifa and Social Justice Struggle” arguing that she “doesn’t care” about violence perpetuated by Antifa members because the violence is in service of a larger “social justice” agenda. “Fighting oppression is messy.

It’s not always going to be done right or peacefully or with perfect grace,” Hathcock remarked. “And that’s okay.

The Left’s (brilliant) scam behind the NFL anthem protestsJazz ShawPosted at 10:41 am on September 26, 2017Share on FacebookShare on Twitter104It didn’t happen until last night. For the entire time that the recent spate of highly inflamed National Anthem protests on NFL playing fields has been unfolding this year, there’s been something nagging at the back of my mind. Watching liberal activists (not to be confused with rank and file voters who may happen to be registered Democrats but also enjoy sports) charging to the barricades over these displays of kneeling, sitting or otherwise acting disrespectfully during the playing of the anthem and the display of the American flag, something just didn’t seem right. But last night was when it hit me. This isn’t about protesting racism, police misconduct or anything of the sort. What we’re observing is potentially one of the greatest red herrings in the history of American political scams.See Also: Noted NSA leaker faces damage to kosher vegan diet from prison foodThe question I was most confused over was… why this location? Why this particular time? The reality is that any of these well paid players could call a press conference or show up at any rally to talk about racism, police shootings and all the rest, and they would draw the attention of millions, along with the media. (God only knows ESPN would show up.) So why were the liberal activists insisting that it had to be at the start of a game while the National Anthem is playing and the flag is on display? It didn’t make sense. And then, suddenly, it did. TRENDING: The Lefts (brilliant) scam behind the NFL anthem protests I think the light bulb finally went on when I was reading this piece on the subject from the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart. It wasn’t really so much what the author had to say because that was probably the fiftieth tirade of that sort I’d read in just the past week. No, it was more a matter of who was saying it. To his credit, Jonathan is honest enough to open the piece with a statement reminding people that he’s, “not much of a sports fan.” But that doesn’t begin to describe him. For those who ever watched Capehart fill in for Willie Geist on MSNBC’s old “Way Too Early” show, you’ll know what I mean. It became something of a running gag (which Jonathan engaged in with a great sense of humor) to watch him attempt to read the teleprompter on Monday morning and describe what had happened around the NFL the day before. Frequently he had%2

Actor to MSNBC: National Anthem is a Scam ‘To Get Boys and Girls to Go Kill People’
By Corinne Weaver | September 25, 2017 10:51 AM EDT
First they came for the statues, now they are coming for the national anthem. The left wants to rip the virtue of patriotism from the public eye. For some progressives, it isn’t enough that NFL players use the anthem for their protest. The anthem itself is a problem.
On Sunday, MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts, actor Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy) expressed his opinion on Trump, the national anthem, and the NFL. He believed that the NFL was owned by Trump supporters who were “close friends with a very horrible guy who thinks he’s a dictator.” Williams also said that “We’re North Korea,” and finally, that the national anthem has nothing to do with the NFL, but “is a scam.” He told Roberts (who agreed) that the anthem was meant “to get boys and girls to go fly overseas and go kill people.”
Williams stated that he wanted to see the owners speak, since “there is an entire league of people, a league of owners, blocking this man and others from being able to fulfill their dreams and do what they’be been able to do. This league is rife with mediocre white quarterbacks that are not as good as Colin Kaepernick.”
But Roberts egged the actor on to talk about Trump and whether or not the president was “gaslighting people” by saying that his supporters could do whatever they wanted, and that he wasn’t calling for an NFL boycott. Williams finally broke into a “fake news” tirade, with this rant aimed at the national anthem and NFL owners:
“They don’t know right from wrong because we know seven or eight of these owners gave Trump a million dollars each, and are close friends with a very horrible guy who thinks he’s a dictator, who treats America like it’s a game show. We’re North Korea and we need

The Antioch, Tennessee church shooter is an immigrant from Sudan and black power radical with a history of sharing pro-Islamic and anti-Western posts on social media, a review of his Facebook and Twitter accounts reveals.
Before 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson opened fire on churchgoers in Antioch, Tennessee today, he shared a variety of Black Power and anti-police propaganda on his personal Facebook page. In addition, he shared a number of pro-Islamic posts, including a video in which a Muslim activist defends Sharia law. Moreover, Samson frequently shared anti-west posts, at least one of which praised Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe’s wealth confiscation efforts.
On July 8th, 2016, Samson shared a link from a website titled “New Generation Back Council” that falsely claimed “Police Murder a black Panther General execution style and try to cover it up June 23rd 2016.”:

And just last month, Samson shared a post that implied citizens shouldn’t trust police because an account purporting to be an assistant chief of police had shared a racially insensitive meme:

February 27th, Samson, whose Facebook indicates he’s from Khartoum, Sudan, shared a video from Mic that declared “You’re more likely to be killed by a white man than a Muslim terrorist.” On March 2nd, he shared a video from Vox co-founder Ezra Klein warning viewers not to ignore the threat of “white extremism”:

On February 17th, Samson shared a video of Muslim activist Yasmeen Abdel-Magied defending Sharia law against Australian Senator Jacqui Lambie. Samson wrote “You can’t converse with some people, that’s the unfortunate truth. Folk will accept what you have to say when they want/ready to.”:

On July 29th, 2016, Samson shared a video titled “Zimbabwe is taking its diamonds back,” and explained that its dictator Robert Mugabe had “announced that the state will now own all diamonds in the country.” Samson praised Mugabe, whose regime has murdered thousands of civilians and confiscated private property from its citizens of European descent. Samson wrote “Bossman, Bobby back at it again.”:

Why do we concentrate so much on this third-rate college in Washington? Because it is the canary in the coal mine. Because it is what many other colleges and universities could very well turn into.
Remember all those leftist protestors of the sixties? The Bill Ayers of the left? The SDS, Weather Underground, Black Panthers and others? They didn’t get real jobs. Instead they went into academia where they poisoned the minds of our children. Then they got administrative jobs where they hired only those who were of like minds. They found ways to indoctrinate our children…to allow them unfettered violence with no consequence. The indoctrinated them with the ideas of Marx, Lenin, and Mao…no contrary ideas…just indoctrination.
We still have time to change this. These colleges and universities don’t need to be conservative. They just need to expose our children to divers ideas and let them make up their own minds. They need to focus on education rather than social engineering. We have time…but not much.
The madness at Evergreen State College
John SextonPosted at 5:21 pm on September 22, 2017
Thursday the Wall Street Journal published a story based on a review of hundreds of pages of internal emails from Evergreen State College. What the paper found was more evidence that students, supported by certain members of the faculty, seemed eager to label anyone who disagreed with them racist:See Also: Socialist parties on the decline in Europe
Consider a February exchange, in which Mr. Weinstein—a progressive who is skeptical of identity politics—faulted what he called Evergreen administrators’ “reckless, top-down reorganization around new structures and principles.”
Within minutes, a student named Mike Penhallegon fired back an email denouncing Mr. Weinstein and his “racist colleagues.”…
Media professor Naima Lowe urged one of Mr. Weinstein’s defenders to read about how calls for civility are “often used to silence and/or dismiss concerns about racism.” She also said that the “white people making changes in their white supremacist attitudes and behaviors” were those “who do not immediately balk and become defensive,” instead acknowledging that “white supremacy is literally ingrained in everything.” In other words, merely defending oneself against the accusation of “white supremacy” is evidence of guilt.
Last month I wrote about the experience of one professor, Nancy Koppelman, who was surrounded by students who demanded she follow their orders. She wrote a long letter expressing her concern about what she experienced:
The madness at Evergreen State College
In the first occassion, three female students and one male who claimed to not be a student surrounded me with raised voices and twisted my words when I responded to them. When I stopped to try to talk with them they refused to actually engage in conversation. The only thing which they would accept was my obedience, which you won’t be surprised to learn I was not going to give. They followed me all the way across Red Square to Sem 2 [Seminar 2] while berating me. By the time I got to the venue for the faculty meeting, I was shaking.
When I left the faculty meeting I was followed by two new students who were waiting outside the door for me. These two followed me and asserted that nothing I could possibly be doing was more important than following their orders. If I did have something important to do, I should tell them what it is so they could evaluate whether my decision to leave was valid.
