Robert Kuttner, co-founder and co-editor of The American Prospect, and professor at Brandeis University's Heller School contends that although tearing down statues of Washington, Jefferson, and Columbus “in some ideal, utopian world” may “feel overdue,” it begs the question “will it contribute to healing—or serve as raw meat to the Bannons?”
Antifa in action at the Trump inauguration (Andrew Marcus)
FOR OVER A YEAR conservative Americans and Trump supporters have been assaulted, spit on, beaten, cold-cocked, egged, chased, tackled and bloodied for attending Trump rallies and conservative events.
THE VIOLENCE AGAINST CONSERVATIVES HAS ESCALATED–
Just last month members of a Patriot Prayer group canceled their rally but a few supporters turned out anyway.
That’s when hundreds of alt-left Antifa protesters rioted.
An army of violent left-wing Antifa terrorists wearing all black, covering their faces with masks terrorized Trump supporters and chased them while trying to steal their phones and cameras. Police did not step in to stop the violence.

After years of far left Antifa violence, hundreds of bloodied bodies and tens of thousands of dollars of property damage the FBI and DHS have listed Antifa violence as “domestic terrorist violence.”
In March Linwood Kaine, youngest son of Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, was arrested at the Minnesota State Capitol in March after disrupting a pro-Trump rally.
The Antifa mob was hurling punches and spraying Trump supporters with pepper spray.

I’ve been mulling this over since August 12th.
The only failure at #UniteTheRight was the policing. If it hadn’t been for the police breakdown, everything would have gone according to plan. The Antifas would have been cleared at the Jefferson monument. We would have had a massive peaceful rally with safe entry and exit.
Just watch the livestream below. The violence was caused by the police breakdown. You can see the police standing around and doing nothing while Antifa blockade the event, bombard Lee Park with projectiles and attack people trying to enter the rally. There are no barricades. There’s not even an attempt to separate the two sides. Instead, the police stand behind the barricades.
The vast majority of our people enter Lee Park and begin socializing. The shield wall takes up a defensive position at the entrances to Lee Park. This was due to the failure of the police to enforce a neutral barrier. You can also see the shield wall race into the crowd to rescue people who are attacked. #UniteTheRight protesters actually show little interest in engaging with the Antifa.
I’ve been to dozens of events and have never seen anything resembling the policing on display in the video below. It is incomprehensible. Everywhere else I have been the police established and enforced a neutral barrier. It makes even less sense when you consider the fact that the Department of Homeland Security warned McAuliffe and Charlottesville about the potential for violence.
There’s no way this was an accident. The fact that the police pushed the #UniteTheRight protesters directly into the crowd of Antifa shows that they were encouraging violence. What were their orders?
The power of world Jewry always amazes me. Here, we have a non-White, non-Western politician forced to backtrack on his words because the Jews – a tiny minority – moaned about them. Perhaps if the Jews hadn’t tried to destroy Germany, some people wouldn’t try to tell the truth about Hitler? . Sounds to me like Imperial Japan needs to make a comeback.
 before Hitler took power, Karl Radek, Rosa Luxemburg, Kurt Eisner, Karl Liebknecht, Leo Jogiches, Paul Levi, Rudolf Hilferding, Eugen Leviné, August Thalheimer and dozens of other Jewish radicals tried to enslave Germany, and they almost succeeded
Failed Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton just won’t go away. She has been busy promoting her new book ‘What Happened’ and peddling left-wing websites in order to scam more people.
Hillary Clinton promoted a new media site ‘Verrit’ run by one of her former advisers, Peter Daou on Sunday and took a jab at the Deplorables she hates so much.
Hillary Clinton tweeted out, “I’m excited to sign up for Verrit, a media platform for the 65.8 million! Will you join me and sign up too?”
So only Hillary’s voters are included. Trump supporters (Deplorables) need not apply. That strategy worked so well for Hillary during the 2016 Presidential election. What a wonderful way to bring the country together.

Hillary Clinton’s former top campaign lawyer, Marc Elias is behind a New Hampshire lawsuit to block a law which would force people who are registering to vote to show a form of I.D. Figures.
The Democrats are pulling out all the stops to prevent voter I.D. laws because without illegal aliens, dead people or people being bussed in to vote, the Democrats would never win another election.
New Hampshire was a close race in the 2016 Presidential election. Hillary won the four electoral votes, however; it took a week to count the votes because it was tight. Hillary received 348,521 votes, while Trump picked up 345,789. Trump lost by 0.4 percent.
The Dems don’t want to lose New Hampshire to the Republicans which will surely happen if voter I.D. laws are passed.
The League of Woman Voters and three individuals are suing the state of New Hampshire in an attempt to block a law on voter registration that includes requirements such as providing a driver’s license to prove an individual’s primary residence is in the state and will be living in the state for a substantial time.
The lawsuit is supported by Priorities USA, the largest liberal super political action committee that backed Clinton’s campaign. Priorities received $9.5 million from Soros throughout the 2016 election cycle.
Marc Elias, a partner at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm Perkins Coie and Clinton’s former top campaign lawyer, is listed as an attorney on the New Hampshire lawsuit. Elias joined the board of Priorities earlier this year when the group absorbed Every Vote Counts, a nonprofit created by Clinton allies to mobilize African American and Latino voters. The group is in the process of building a “one-stop inventory” on voting measures that will be shared with other liberal groups.
Elias was behind a number of lawsuits that were filed against voter identification laws in recent years.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her rival Martin Schulz squared off in a televised debate Sunday evening focusing on migrants, North Korea and Turkey with Schulz saying he will cancel the European Union migrant deal with the country if elected later this month. The debate, which was seen as a test for current German Chancellor Angela Merkel, largely centred around the migrant crisis with Martin Schulz slamming Merkel for not consulting other European nations enough during the crisis. “The inclusion of our European neighbours would have been better,” Schulz said. Merkel quickly replied saying, “We had a very dramatic situation then … There are times in the life of a chancellor when she has to decide.” Schulz also blamed Merkel for the dramatic rise in popularity of the anti-mass migration Alternative for Germany (AfD) who are polling in third place in many current polls and have made huge gains in recent regional elections. For Schulz, the debate was his opportunity to close the gap between the German Chancellor and himself as the challenger. While post-debate polling revealed that Merkel was thought to have performed better, he did appear to close the gap between them. Politico Europe reports: According to broadcaster ZDF’s Politbarometer poll,
President Trump ended the Obama-era program that grants work permits to illegal immigrants that arrived in this country illegally with their lawbreaking parents or guardians, according to Politico’s Eliana Johnson, who cites “two sources familiar with his thinking.”
Sunday, Senior White House aides met to discuss the rollout of one of the President’s key campaign promises – ending DACA.
The President spent months mulling over the decision of whether or not to get rid of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA. A number of anti-Trump GOP members attempted to deter the President from scrapping the program, but the law must be upheld and abnormalities and ways in which people cheat the system should not be rewarded as other Americans lose out to jobs children of illegal immigrants get to have . . . Not to mention diversity quotas that basically guarantee they get hired over other Americans.
President Donald Trump has decided to end the Obama-era program that grants work permits to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as children, according to two sources familiar with his thinking. Senior White House aides huddled Sunday afternoon to discuss the rollout of a decision likely to ignite a political firestorm — and fulfill one of the president’s core campaign promises.
Conversations with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who argued that Congress — rather than the executive branch — is responsible for writing immigration law, helped persuade the president to terminate the program, the two sources said, though White House aides caution that — as with everything in the Trump White House — nothing is set in stone until an official announcement has been made.
In a nod to reservations held by many lawmakers, the White House plans to delay the enforcement of the president’s decision for six months, giving Congress a window to act, according to one White House official. But a senior White House aide said that chief of staff John Kelly, who has been running the West Wing policy process on the issue, “thinks Congress should’ve gotten its act together a lot longer ago.”

Fake Republican and Faithless Elector Chris Suprun Who Voted Against Trump is Running For Congress as DEMOCRAT!
Chris Suprun was one of 38 Texas electors. He also went public with his decision to go against the will of the people of Texas by not be honoring his pledge to vote for then-President Elect, Donald Trump.
Eyebrows were raised and suspicions grew over what Mr. Suprun’s intentions really were after he penned an op-ed in the New York Times over his decision to be a ‘faithless elector’. Shockingly, his Twitter bio also directed media inquiries to P.R. firm, Megaphone Strategies. This P.R. firm represents radical left wing organizations like Black Lives Matter and even reps CNN’s ultra left wing radical, Van Jones.
As TGP previously reported, Got News revealed that Chris Suprun filed Bankruptcy and 6 months later joined Ashley Madison, which is a ‘dating site’ for married people looking to have an affair. Mr. Suprun had 3 children under the age of 10 at the time! It is also alleged that he was unemployed during this time while his wife worked full time!
For years Chris Suprun has passed himself off as a 9-11 hero first responder.
He has even thrown the first pitch out at local ballparks.
Now it looks like that was all a lie.
He didn’t become a firefighter until OCTOBER 2001.
The Republican elector who has gotten national attention for refusing to vote for Donald Trump at the Electoral College on Dec. 19 was apparently not a first responder on September 11, 2001 as he has stated for years and has a questionable career history, according to an investigation by WFAA.
Chris Suprun, 42, portrays himself as a heroic firefighter who was among the first on the scene after the third plane flew into the Pentagon on 9/11.
“He claimed to be a first responder with the Manassas Park [Virginia] Fire Department on September 11, 2001 and personally told us stories ‘I was fighting fire that day at the Pentagon.’ No, I was on a medic unit that day at the Pentagon and you make a phone call to Manassas Park and you find out that he wasn’t even employed there until October 2001,” said a first responder who knows Suprun and only agreed to speak about him if his identity was concealed.
The City of Manassas Park confirmed to WFAA that it hired Suprun on October 10, 2001, one month after the 9/11 attacks.
The mask is off. Chris Suprun is now running for Congress as a Democrat! This is more proof that #NeverTrumpers are Democrats who claim to be Republicans in order to sabotage the party.

Bolton: ‘Only Diplomatic Option Left Is to End the Regime in N Korea By Effectively Having the South Take It Over’
On this weekend’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” former U.N. ambassador John Bolton argued the only remaining diplomatic solution to the nuclear threat from North Korea was through the unification of the Korean peninsula, which he argued mean letting South Korea take over North Korea. “The only diplomatic option left is to end the North Korean regime by effectively having the South take it over,” Bolton said. “Sunday Morning Futures” fill-in host Trish Regan protested and said it was “really diplomatic.” “Well, that is their problem, not ours,” Bolton replied. “Because anybody who thinks more diplomacy with North Korea, more sanctions, whether against North Korea, or an effort to apply sanctions against China, is just giving North Korea more time to increase its nuclear arsenal, increase its ballistic missile capability, increase the accuracy of its guidance systems and put us, South Korea, and Japan in more jeopardy.” “We have fooled around with North Korea for 25 years, and fooling around some more is just going to make matters worse,” he added.

Chelsea Clinton Continues to Attack POTUS=> Complains About ‘Lack of EPA Presence’ in Texas – Trump Supporters Respond
Chelsea Clinton decided to further divide Americans as many have come together in a time a tragedy to help all who are suffering from Hurricane Harvey destruction.
Now Chelsea Clinton is complaining about the lack of EPA presence in Texas despite the praise President Trump received from Governor Abbott. Trump deployed supplies to Texas before the hurricane made landfall and his ‘all hands on deck’ strategy has helped reduce suffering, but it’s never enough for the liberals. All liberals do is fear-monger.
President Trump and First Lady Melania traveled to Houston, Texas on Saturday to visit people affected by Hurricane Harvey. POTUS and FLOTUS also greeted children at NRG stadium in Houston. POTUS hugged, kissed and even “played toys” with children impacted by the storm. It’s a side Trump voters know exists of the President, but so seldom hear about from the mainstream media. Trump also declared Sunday a ‘National Day of Prayer’ for Harvey victims, but leave it to liberals like Chelsea Clinton to continue to divide the nation.
Chelsea Clinton just won’t go away. What has she ever done besides tweet Marxist platitudes and complain about her criminal mother’s election loss?
Chelsea tweeted out a thread from a woman complaining about changes made at the EPA since Trump was elected. The EPA is another Marxist front group posing an an environmental agency. The American people voted for less of this which is why Trump is the president, not Hillary. Get over it, liberals.
— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) September 3, 2017
The thread began with a woman coming unglued over the changes at the EPA in the last year. Newsflash, we have a new President. With liberals, the sky is always falling and the answer is always ‘more government’.
I’ve been subscribed to EPA news alerts for over a year now. Since the election, the shift is absolutely nuts. 1/

Chelsea also retweeted a woman who said, “I have worked for the environment at the state level for many years. You can trust me when I say EPA’s absence in TX is unprecedented.”

Editor’s Note: I’ve fleshed out my thoughts on the optics debate, strategy, tactics in one spot instead of in hundreds of tweets. It’s a divisive topic and I do enjoy arguing these issues. I’ve been mulling over this stuff for 16 years now.
Guns are too provocative.
In our experience, this isn’t true. We’ve held dozens of armed rallies with no deaths, no violence, no injuries and no arrests. The most violent rallies are ALWAYS in leftwing strongholds, particularly gun free zones on college campuses, where Antifa feel emboldened to attack.
There have been three occasions in which our people have been arrested. In Auburn, there was a scuffle on a gun free campus. In New Orleans, we were disarmed at Lee Circle. In Charlottesville, there were multiple injuries and arrests after it was decided to hold a disarmed event. We can’t afford to continue to leave behind a trail of arrests, injuries and medical bills.
The Pikeville rally was heavily criticized because of “optics.” In Pikeville though, no one was injured or arrested because we were heavily armed and not in a leftwing stronghold. No one died like in Charlottesville after violence was allowed to spiral out of control. The worst optics in Charlottesville was due to the car crash, not flags or what people were wearing on that day.
People will die at violent armed rallies.
Guns are far more popular than the Alt-Right.
The Alt-Right is squeamish about guns. Southerners love their guns. No one has been shot at any of our armed rallies. All the violence and arrests have taken place in gun free zones. We can hold public events anywhere and it is prudent to avoid places which are known security risks.
If we were attacked in gun free zones, normies will sympathize with us.
In Charlottesville, we saw that Antifa are now using flamethrowers, wasp spray, acid and battering rams. This is a major escalation in Antifa violence. We had dozens of people get injured in Charlottesville. Several people in our own group were attacked with clubs and required medical treatment. They were peacefully returning to their cars. The media took every incident out of context and even ignored their own reporters who were victimized in order to portray thugs like DeAndre Harris as the victims.
Chris Cantwell was maced twice in Charlottesville. He was arrested and went to jail for using pepper spray in self defense. Now, he is relentlessly mocked by the media as the “Crying Nazi.” There was no outpouring of public sympathy from normies over our victimization in Charlottesville. Instead, we have arrests, medical bills, job losses and downed websites to deal with. Normies have never cared about all the “racists” who have went to prison over any number of bullshit charges. Ask Matt Hale.
Berkeley was different than Charlottesville for a number of reasons but above all else because we fought back and weren’t dramatically outnumbered by Antifa. The Berkeley rally was organized by the transsexual Amber Cummings. Joey Gibson is a Japanese-American who comes across as “a Unitarian Sunday school teacher.” The lineup of speakers in Berkeley was going to be “three blacks, two Hispanics, one Asian, one Samoan, one Muslim, two women, and one white male.”
We can’t go the Berkeley route to “change the narrative” without abandoning all of our beliefs in the process. As long as we can be tagged as “racists,” the media will cheer on Antifa who attack us and “both sides” will be blamed for it and the result will be indifference from normies. No one is going to care about your victimization. You’re just going to be the “Crying Nazi.”
We shouldn’t have public rallies.
If the #UniteTheRight rally had been held in Lynchburg, VA instead of Charlottesville, VA, it would have been fine. There would have been no violence. The police would have done their jobs. Everything that happened in Charlottesville flowed from the fact that it is the most leftwing city in Virginia which is why the police stood down and allowed #UniteTheRight to descend into anarchy.
We’re not going to stop holding public rallies. This is an overreaction. The truth is that we aren’t safe in leftwing strongholds where police stand down like in Berkeley or Charlottesville. That’s the real problem. There’s no reason why we can’t just avoid those places and continue to hold public events. Also, if we want to hold rallies in leftwing cities like Charlottesville, flash rallies are safer and preferable.
The torches will scare the normies.
The torchlight parades are powerful.
I had never participated in a torchlight parade until Charlottesville. I think it is an effective tactic and the dramatically increased turnout suggests it has strong appeal. Conceivably, we could get better looking torches which would look even more powerful. The League of the South, Traditionalist Workers Party and Nationalist Front didn’t participate in the torchlight parade on August 12th. These groups had planning and strategy sessions on the evening of August 11th.
But, the optics.
The optics of the event were the khakis and polos. This was heavily commented on after #UniteTheRight. It’s not like this fact went unnoticed. It was duly noted. We were still a bunch of “racists.” We’re always going to be a bunch of “white supremacists” in the eyes of our enemies.
But, the Nazis have to go.
Even if there had been no Nazis at #UniteTheRight, it would have still been called a Neo-Nazi KKK white supremacist rally. Joey Gibson and Amber Cummings were labeled “white supremacists” by Nancy Pelosi and Diane Feinstein. Black Confederates were attacked by Antifa in New Orleans. Tens of thousands of people marched against the free speech rallies in Boston and San Francisco.
But, the swastika flag.
There was one guy at #UniteTheRight with a swastika flag in a crowd of 1,000 people. The Left was using dozens of Red flags and Pan-African flags. The NSM doesn’t even use the swastika flag. Could the optics of the event been better without the one swastika flag? Sure, but the overall narrative would have been the same. It would have still been called a Neo-Nazi white supremacist racist event.
But, the Confederate flag has to go.
The Confederate Battle Flags were appropriate at #UniteTheRight. The rally was about preserving the Robert E. Lee monument. It would have looked ridiculous to have a sea of American flags. That’s the flag that Robert E. Lee fought against in the War Between the States.
We should only use the US flag because that is good optics.
In doing so, you’re choosing optics over numbers and being dramatically outnumbered is also bad optics. The effect of using only the American flag will be to create a polarizing issue. Lots of people won’t use the US flag and the turnout will go down at rallies. Normies still won’t join us because our cause is stigmatized as “racist” and they are fundamentally motivated by socioeconomic status.
We can’t appeal to the normies with all these weird flags.
Why do so few people use the US flag to begin with? It’s because we’re not normies. We are alienated, disaffected reactionaries. We believe the past was better than the present. Different groups have different reactionary styles but the mindset is the same. It is all about disillusionment with the present.
We’re not going to get large numbers of disaffected people to use the US flag to appeal to normies. We’re not patriotic because life is actually really bad for White people. We’re losing the First Amendment now. Life is getting worse for White people and that will create more reactionaries.
Flattering normies has never worked. It doesn’t work because normies are individualists and materialists who are motivated by economics and social status. They have a fundamentally different mindset. The goal of the normie is to glide through life and avoid controversy. We’re synonymous with controversy! We’re romantic nationalists which has always been at odds with being a normie!
You’re appealing to the most extreme elements.
First, we have to understand who we are. We are alienated, disaffected, disillusioned White Americans. Second, we have to understand who normies are, which is to say, middle class people who are comfortable and satisfied and who don’t want to make waves for financial reasons or fear of loss of status.
In order to grow, we want more people to adopt our views. We want the normies to become angry, alienated, disaffected and disillusioned like the rest of us. The audience then really isn’t normies who are being converted. It is the disaffected who we should be organizing.
We’ve got to win over the normies.
Victory for us is by definition normies ceasing to be normies. It means overcoming these economic and social status concerns and embracing romantic nationalism. It means being carried away by righteous anger and shattering all politically correct taboos. Cultural change happens when an idea reaches a critical mass. Then it rapidly sweeps through the rest of the population. In other words, the goal has to be to create a cultural vanguard which can initiate this transformative process.
How do you propose to win over the normies?
Antifas are our ambassadors to the normies. Fear and loathing of living under a communist, socialist or anarchist government is our most compelling argument. In the long run, normie life will become impossible for a vast swelling pool of White people. Instead of flattering normies, social and economic decline will create more disaffected people and a greater pool of potential converts to mobilize. We give those people a myth and a cause greater than themselves to believe in.
We’re going to MAGA though.
No, you’re not.
This country is too far gone. Trump was the last hurrah of Taking Back America. This was actually the fourth of fifth Taking Back America movement. The Tea Party was the last incarnation of that impulse. The same people have been talking about that since Ronald Reagan was president. Every single time it is coopted into pushing the same corporate agenda.
It sounds like you are rejecting mainstreaming.
I’m rejecting naive mainstreaming.
In a sense, I want our ideas to be “mainstream,” or more socially acceptable. The only way you do that is through amassing power. What is power? It is numbers, organization, money, will power, etc. We become powerful by smashing taboos and demonstrating we won’t observe them anymore.
Charlottesville devastated the Alt-Right.
No, it didn’t.
10% of the public identifies with the Alt-Right now. That’s more people than live in Texas. The low end is 6% of the public which is more people than live in Florida. The reaction to Charlottesville broke down on partisan lines. Among Trump’s base, most people actually blamed Antifas. Only something like 28% of the public blamed “white supremacists” exclusively for what happened in Charlottesville.
We need to be “mainstream.”
You will never be “mainstream” because you are incapable of visualizing what the “mainstream” is …
The “mainstream” is the left side of this discursive cloud. Decades ago, the blue side of the cloud used to be the entire cloud but that has radically changed since 2008. At the time, the habit was developed of always deferring to cultural norms established by the Left which is the origins of cucking. That’s what it meant to be “mainstream.” It meant deferring to their overwhelming cultural power which has since been lost. No one trusts the “mainstream” anymore except 20% of the public who are Far Left Democrats.
This sounds like vanguardism.
I’m rejecting stupid vanguardism which is, say, retreating to a rural area to await the demise of civilization or taking up arms and attempting to overthrow the US government. I’m not advocating violence or purity spiraling. Instead, I am saying a cultural vanguard is needed to violate norms.
We tried that in Charlottesville.
Yes, we did. The entire political, corporate and media establishment was sent into a full blown panic. That’s never happened before because we demonstrated power through numbers and unity. When entrenched elites fight back against you, it is because they feel threatened by something you have done.
The Jews were scared shitless.
Yes, they were. We’ve got to overcome a number of obstacles. In particular, we have to overcome digital no platforming. This was going on before Charlottesville. We had already been banned by Disqus, Donately, PayPal, Patreon and GoFundMe. It was always going to end this way.
You’re completely discounting the optics.
I believe optics has its place.
The torchlight parades, for example, are powerful. The marches are powerful. Obviously, the polos and khakis are better optics than Klan robes and swastika flags. Obviously, physical fitness is preferable to being out of shape. So I am not dismissing optics. There is massive room for improvement in that area. It’s just not the only thing.
Ethics are more important than optics. We need to appeal more to our people’s sense of right and wrong than what looks good. It is the former that really moves people to action. We need to rewire our morality. We’ve lost the moral sense of our ancestors because our culture has degenerated under liberal democracy. There is too much focus on aesthetics and not enough on aesthetics.
You’re against the US flag.
If you want to use the US flag, by all means use the US flag. Go have US flags rallies! It’s just unreasonable to expect everyone to use the US flag because of optics. There were people with US flags at the #UniteTheRight rally and I didn’t have the slightest problem with them.
What is optics cucking?
It is more accurately optics spiraling. I see it as a source of unnecessary division. We’ve dealt with it before. All it does is create polarization and reduce our numbers. Normies will drive by and honk their horns. They might even think you are a wholesome, good looking bunch of guys on television. The visual impression, however, isn’t going to change normie incentives and behavior though.
We should be signaling the normies with US flags.
I’ve encouraged the people who want to do this to try it. I don’t see how the experiment could hurt. If I am proven wrong, then so much the better. Frankly, I just don’t believe thousands of normies are going to respond to US flags based on the theory that it will be just like a Trump rally. The difference is that you will be labeled a “racist” and the same incentive structure will remain in place.
What do you propose?
We should continue to hold real world events: conferences, public rallies, private social events, cultural events, flash rallies, speaking engagements.
Flags are inappropriate and unnecessary at speaking engagements. These speaking engagements are also in gun free zones on college campuses, anyway. So much of this debate is making mountains out of molehills. The goal is to create a polarizing social media spectacle. Again, we want to attract the angry, alienated, disaffected and disillusioned and organize them into a cultural vanguard.
The establishment overreacted. I mean look at “Goy, Bye.”
#UniteTheRight really was the greatest triggering of all time. It exceeded my expectations. If it hadn’t been in the park in Charlottesville, there would have been no violence. The elites really dropped the mask and bore their fangs after Charlottesville which is good for us.
Just look at all the damage to our websites.
You’re calling for a revolution. The establishment is going to fight back. You need to accept that. We need to be making ourselves invulnerable to such attacks, anyway.
What do we do now?
Quite honestly, we should be rebuilding our sites on Alt-Tech infrastructure. I’m for more public rallies. The priority has to be on rebuilding for now though.
