PORTLAND MAYOR DEMANDS CANCELLATION OF FREE SPEECH RALLY

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has demanded the shutdown of a “Trump Free Speech Rally” scheduled for June 4 in his city.

According to The Associated Press, Wheeler has deemed the event inappropriate and potentially dangerous following the fatal stabbing of two men by an allegedly anti-Muslim man named Jeremy Christian on a train in Portland last week.

Taking to Twitter, Wheeler decried the June 4 rally as an alt-right affair, urging the federal government to “IMMEDIATELY REVOKE” the permit granted for it.

He also demanded the shutdown of a “March Against Sharia” scheduled for June 10.

Wheeler went on to describe the upcoming event with the terms “bigotry” and “hatred,” stating that neither have any place in Portland, especially following last week’s murders.

According to OPB.org…, the ACLU of Oregon has responded to Wheeler’s remarks with criticism.

“The government cannot revoke or deny a permit based on the viewpoint of the demonstrators,” the organization reportedly wrote. “Period. If we allow the government to shut down speech for some, we all will pay the price down the line.”

As for the June 4 event Wheeler hopes to shut down, its Facebook page indicates it will feature Based Stickman, Based Spartan, Patriot Girl, Warriors For Freedom, “and many others in downtown Portland… one of the most liberal areas on the West Coast.”

Sam Houston statue in Hermann Park causing controversy

HOUSTON – The starting point was a Facebook post by a group called Texas Antifa.

The post alleges the Sam Houston Memorial’s so-called demise will begin on June 10.

Why remove it?

Other posts by the group explain its stance.

“Texans agree the disgusting idols of America’s dark days of slavery must be removed to bring internal peace to our country.”

Another post reads:

“After we have this one removed, we can then work on getting the 67-foot Sam Houston statue outside of Huntsville turned into parking lot gravel, and the forest renamed.”

The statue at Hermann Park has stood at Montrose and Main streets since 1925.

Houston is credited for securing Texas’ independence from Mexico during the battle of San Jacinto in 1836.

He was president of Texas, a U.S. senator after Texas joined the United States and then became the state’s governor.

“Sam Houston is the father of Texas,” David Amad said.

Amad is vice president of Texas open carry.

He says the post has ruffled feathers within his organization and others.

He says as Texas Anifa plans to protest in favor of the statue’s removal, other organizations will be there calling for it to stay.

“They were the ones that proposed the initial protest to protest this statue and try to have it removed. Our event is to make sure they understand that one way or another that statue is not going anywhere,” Amad said.

Based Stickman: Conservatives Should Marry and Have Lots of Kids – Crown City News

Kyle “Based Stickman” Chapman visited the Crown City Network studio recently and talked on-camera with Tami DeVine on the CCN Show Tami’s Take.  He surprised Tami with some breaking news, announcing that he was starting a new organization dedicated to creating “alpha males.”

“This Peter Pan stuff of men going into their late thirties, not having kids, not getting married, and not settling down, that’s gotta stop,” said Chapman. “We need to have a focus back on the family, settling down, getting married,having kids, having lots of kids and embracing those traditional American values again,” he continued.

“Ooh, you’re going to ruffle a lot of feathers with all this,” Tami responded.  Take a look at more of the interview:

Chapman became a new media celebrity known as the “Based Stickman” when he donned protective gear during a free speech event at the University of Berkeley and beat a member of the Antifa (for Anti-fascism) group, who he says were attacking women and the elderly, over the head with a closet rod.

League of the South Members Among Those Attending NOLA Counter-Protests This Weekend

League of the South Members Among Those Attending NOLA Counter-Protests This Weekend

Following the debut of their Southern Defense Force (SDF) last week at a rally organized by the Traditionalist Worker’s Party (TWP) last week in Pikeville, Kentucky, Michael Hill and League of the South (LOS) members will join a growing protest in New Orleans over the city’s removal of Confederate-themed statues

Last weekend a handful of League of the South (LOS) members participated in the Traditionalist Worker’s Party’s (TWP) Pikeville rally along with National Socialist Movement (NSM) “commander” Jeff Schoep and various other groups from the racist right. In after-action social media posts, LOS president Michael Hill described the event as “the first major operation for the League’s Southern Defense Force” (SDF).

Hill was photographed at the event with Ike Baker, who he named as the Kentucky SDF commander. Both were dressed in the League’s recently adopted public uniform: khaki cargo pants, black boots and a black polo with the “Southern Nationalist” Cushman Flag emblazoned across the chest. Hill, now in his 70s, used a cane. While there were photos of numerous individuals at the rally sporting AR-15s and shotguns, Hill and the other LOS SDF members do not appear to have been openly carrying firearms.

League of the South

League of the South Southern Defense Force members pose for an “after-action” photo-op.

In a post titled “League of the South in Pikeville, Kentucky” Hill acknowledged that the League and their compatriots were largely outnumbered by peaceful protesters, although his phrasing and depiction of the day’s events differ slightly:

All the while, the cowardly Antifa had every chance to cross the barricades with a huge numerical advantage and actually do to us what they stood there threatening to do – destroy us. There was no way the cops could have prevented a sizable number of them from reaching us and closing quarters.

Since the announcement of the SDF, Hill has become part of a growing chorus on the right attempting to erase any distinctions between the demonstrators, “violent Antifas,” and passersby at public protests.

This week, news reports have centered around the growing tension in New Orleans as city workers attempt to take down Confederate monuments amidst backlash from various neo-Confederate sympathizers.

The League, which has touted the removal of Civil War monuments in public squares as proof of an accelerating program of “white genocide,” has sought to capitalize on the removal of Confederate iconography. This comes after a public outcry arose over the prominence of the banner and other revisionist appeals to the Lost Cause narrative of the Civil War and its heroes. In the process the League reversed a PR policy that was intended to distance the group from the controversial icons.

Two of the most prominent voices opposing the removal are Arlene Barnum and Andrew Duncomb, two African American neo-Confederate activists from Oklahoma who claim descent from Confederate veterans. Although Hill and the League typically denigrate “black Confederates” and their “Rainbow Confederate” ilk, they have been silent on the pair’s role in the protests, instead focusing their ire on the Sons of Confederate Veterans over allegations that the Commander of the Louisiana Division SCV ordered members to “stand down” and not protest the monument’s removal.

While it is unlikely that the situation in New Orleans will see Hill and the League join forces with black neo-Confederates, the event appears to have helped Hill mend his relationship with Brad Griffin, who has in the past criticized Hill’s paramilitary ambitions on his blog Occidental Dissent.

Griffin was present in Pikeville, although dressed in plain-clothes. This week Griffin, writing on “The Meaning of Pikeville” under the pen-name Hunter Wallace, stated “Now, I firmly believe that a Southern Defense Force is justified.” Hill shared that blog on the League of the South website.

Today, Griffin posted “The Battle of New Orleans,” stating “Nationalist groups are coming to New Orleans on May 7 and announcing his intent to counter-protest a demonstration at Lee Circle along with “Based Stickman” Kyle Chapman, Tim “Baked Alaska” Gionet AKA, the “Proud Boys,” and a host of others from the far right and “alt-right”.

This week, Hill and numerous others have taken to social media, asserting that the New Orleans Police Department is complicit in a conspiracy to aid and abet “Antifas” on orders from City Hall, as taken from this “directive” exhorting his followers to make their way to New Orleans:

LS Directive 02052017

A call to action

The League of the South encourages its members who are willing and able to be in New Orleans this weekend to show support for the Confederate monuments that the city has pledged to remove.

Below is some vital information regarding this developing situation:

The NOPD “stand down” order that we were told would be in force from now though the weekend is unlikely to be carried out. Our man on the ground says that the NOPD is actually there to protect Antifa and to see that the monument supporters have a hard time. Thus, you may face legal trouble for even trying to defend yourself from the opposition. Be aware of this.

3) That said, we encourage a League presence on Sunday at Lee Circle. We believe at this time that will be the main location for activity this weekend. Our folks who are interested in going to show support for keeping the monuments are advised to act as good and responsible representatives of the LS and to take orders from none but our own. At present, our N2, Tiny Malone, will be in charge of the LS contingent. Please give him your support and cooperation.

Our objective is to have an orderly presence and show support for our Southern inheritance. THIS WILL NOT BE A SOUTHERN DEFENSE FORCE EVENT. Rather, we will use standard LS demonstration protocol. Women and children are welcome. Standard LS demonstration dress and behavior will apply, as will flags, banners, and signs. We especially want LS SN black cross flags there!

Louisiana is an open carry State and is very friendly to concealed carry. If you intend to do either, please consult State and local law beforehand.

If you or anyone you know from The LS is going to NOLA, please let Tiny Malone (N2) know ASAP.

I will update this information once I hear from our man on the ground in NOLA. He is trying to work out logistics for our people who attend, including a staging point upon arrival.

Michael Hill

It is unclear why Hill is deciding against naming this a “Southern Defense Force event,” given that the situation in New Orleans appears to fit the exact description of why he first announced the formation of the SDF. Recent events in Auburn, Alabama, close to the League’s headquarters also apparently failed to merit the distinction of “SDF event.”

Although one LOS member was arrested for brawling outside of Auburn University’s Foy Hall, the SDF were nowhere to be seen. The next weekend, Hill was able to travel hundreds of miles to Kentucky for Matt Heimbach’s rally.

In spite of Hill’s confidence that the SDF would “ …be ready to assist our local and State authorities in keeping the peace should they find it necessary to “deputize” private citizens for that purpose,” coordination between Kentucky law enforcement kept the LOS, TWP and National Socialist Movement (NSM) members separated from counter-demonstrators behind metal barriers, with no violent outbursts.

While Pikeville, a secluded, mostly-white town with no major cities nearby, was a fitting dry-run for Hill’s SDF, Hill recognizes that his members lack the coordination, resolve or discipline to function effectively in more diverse, cosmopolitan settings or to steer clear of criminal violence when push comes to shove. Whether they are operating under the SDF banner or not, the coming “Battle of New Orleans” will test restraint on both sides of the debate.

Death threats, graffiti and assault allegations abound as New Orleans begins … – Salon


New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu’s effort to remove several Confederate-related monuments is hardly proving to be a Big Easy.The first statue, which honored an 1874 white supremacist rebellion against federal authority after the Civil War, was removed in the middle of the night by masked contractors wearing bulletproof vests in late April. None of the other three have been relocated yet.Landrieu has said he plans to place the statues in a museum at a future date but has not given details on their ultimate destination.

The removal effort has provoked a massive amount of controversy within far right circles. Several Republican politicians have condemned the undertaking, one even accused Landrieu and other supporters of removing Confederate symbols of conducting a “war on our history.”

In an interview with the local Times-Picayune newspaper on April 27, the Democratic mayor said that city officials have received numerous death threats and that every company offering heavy crane rentals in southern Louisiana has received threatening messages as well.

“It’s not the monuments. It’s the attitude that allows the monuments to stay,” Landrieu was quoted as saying.

According to Landrieu, several prominent local business leaders have privately pressured him to halt his efforts. He’s also come under fire from a number of Republicans in the state legislature who have been promoting several different bills designed to keep the Confederate monuments in place.

Thomas Carmody Jr., a Shreveport Republican member of the state house, introduced a bill which would make all municipal efforts to remove, rename, or alter any military monument subject to a vote of the local citizens. It successfully passed through a committee vote on Wednesday, according to the The Advocate newspaper.

The monument removal initiative has also attracted the attention of web-based political extremists on both left and right, particularly as the city is in the midst of one of its top tourist events, the annual Jazz Fest music extravaganza.

Pro-monument protesters have repeatedly gathered at a statue honoring Jefferson Davis, the only president of the Confederacy, and have clashed with those supporting the relocation effort. Several members of an “antifa” leftist organization have been filmed by observers in a military truck bearing a sign saying “Fuck Off Nazi Scum!”

Supporters of the statue have also been rallying at the state capitol in Baton Rouge and have accused their opponents of throwing filled soda cans at them.

Antifa activists have also been accused of spraying graffiti on another of the statues and also painting “tear it down” on a monument to Joan of Arc, a figure from French history who had no connection to the Confederacy.

The controversy has also gotten the attention of the racist “alt-right” movement as part of a larger strategy to utilize violent confrontations with antifa demonstrators to radicalize white Republicans.

Kyle Chapman, a far-right Trump supporter who acquired the nickname “Based Stick Man” after an altercation with antifa activists in California earlier this year, has issued a call on Twitter for his fans to join him at a rally in New Orleans on May 7 to “defend American history.” Numerous other alt-right blogs and Twitter users have been promoting the event to their followers as well.
