Thought Crime: Police Officer Under Investigation for Criticism of Black Lives Matter. Alt-Left activist triggered by police officer’s meme on Facebook, demands officer be condemned and fired

Since the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement — and largely because of it — America’s law enforcement officers have dealt with increased danger and resentment. They are accused of being racist and violent and face ever-rising hostility from the civilians they are supposed to protect.

And now it seems they can’t even protest this sad state of affairs without putting their jobs at risk. 

More Than 80 Arrested In 3rd Night Of Protests In St. Louis; 
 
A St. Louis police officer is under investigation for an anti-Black Lives Matter post on Facebook — made in the midst of violent, destructive rioting that took place under the Black Lives Matter banner. The investigation follows a complaint by Alt-leftist Lisa Clancy, who posted a photograph of herself participating in a Black Lives Matter rally on Facebook. In response, the unnamed police officer posted a meme describing Black Lives Matter as “the Klan with a tan” and “domestic terrorists.”

“Letting that behavior happen undermines the very trust and relationships that are very important right now, especially when our community is in such a crisis moment,” Clancy told local news station KMOV.

When the exchange occurred, St. Louis resembled a war zone. Violent, destructive riots in response to the acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley were a nightly occurrence. While Clancy was writing anti-law enforcement propaganda on Facebook, St. Louis police officers were dealing with a veritable insurgency.

But this is irrelevant to Clancy, who believes the officer deserves to lose his job for exercising the very same right to free speech that Clancy exercised both in protesting the police and then bragging about it on Facebook.

“He needs to be let go. I think they need to send a strong message that this kind of behavior is unacceptable,” Clancy told KMOV. Tellingly, the existence of an internal investigation is not enough for Clancy, who is demanding that the St. Louis police department prostrate itself at the altar of the Alt-Left and publicly condemn the officer for his thought crime.

I think that their failure to condemn it publicly suggests that there’s systemic racism in the institution,” she said.

ANTIFA: Violence is Necessary


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on September 14, 2017

The extreme liberal movement Antifa, anti-fascists, are continuing to protest President Trump all throughout the nation. They claim their use of violence is ‘necessary’ to combat authoritarianism and they are not sorry about it. ‘Experts’ and activists alike in the Antifa movement agree that the ‘use of force is intrinsic to their political philosophy,’ the Hill reports.

“The justification [of the use of violence] is that Nazi ideology at its very core is founded on violence and on wielding power by any means,” said Mike Isaacson, founder of Smash Racism D.C., an antifa organization in Washington.

Isaacson is unequivocal in his defense of violence as a legitimate tool to combat the creeping threat of what he deems authoritarianism.

“There is the question of whether these people should feel safe organizing as Nazis in public, and I don’t think they should,” said Isaacson.

“I don’t think anyone should think that someone who is intent on politically organizing for the sake of creating a state-sponsored genocide — I don’t think is something that we should protect.”

This report comes after it was revealed Antifa has started a violent anti-cop ‘workshop’ titled “Our Enemies in Blue”. The program is being touted on various alt-left websites — including It’s Going Down, Sub.Media and Insurrection News — and are promoting it as a Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM). They are openly calling for violence against the police.

The group published a press release: in it they disclosed their plan to serve as a protective barrier to mosques that “are being ruthlessly bombed” (are they talking about America?) and the alleged systematic battering of LGBTQ community. “The destruction of black life continues unabated as millions languish in the plantations of the modern day slave system,” it states.

The ‘heroins’ of RAM includes Mumia Abu Jamal, “the Black Panther activist who shot and killed Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981,” and Russell Shoats, “who shot a police officer in the back five times in 1970.”

Far Left Watch has outlined the goals of RAM, which is everything from “Abolition of Gender” to the “Expropriation and the Cooperative Economy.” ‘Much of this borrows from the leftist guerilla movement known as the Rojava Revolution in northern Syria, who are currently involved in battling ISIS,’ reports the Daily Wire.

It has been reported, by the Daily Caller, that RAM has been holding different anti-police workshops including: “Legal Training”, “Introduction to Anarchism,” and “Our Enemies in Blue,” which deals with actual actions against the police–or how to handle law enforcement during violent clashes.

Kansas City police ordered the disarmament of armed antifa groups who marched in Washington Square Park this past Saturday. Armed with semi-automatic rifles and ammunition, activists from the Kansas City Revolution Collective, Serve the People, and Progressive Youth Organization rallied within the park to the anti-Sharia group, ACT For America.

Dressed in black clothing and red balaclavas, the group carried red flags bearing the communist symbol.

The Kansas City Revolutionary Collective calls itself a “Marxist-Leninist-Maoist” collective that has posted calls for “self-preservation” against “far-right militias” whom they claim are supported by President Donald Trump.

 

In a post on their WordPress blog, as highlighted by Far Left Watch, the organization decried the “pacifist nature and indifference that characterizes much of the resistance to Trumpite fascism,” and states that “a more militant resistance is emerging, one that we wholeheartedly support and seek to enrich.” The group calls for “every communist” to “take self-defense seriously.”

According to the Kansas City Star, police ordered their disarmament and removal of ammunition from their weapons at the Saturday morning rally. The armed individuals complied, but several among them claimed that the disarmament violated their rights under the state’s open carry statutes. Members of the group reportedly said they planned to fight the order, but did not take any action at the park.

“We don’t see any merit to fight it now,” said one of the masked antifa members who reportedly removed ammunition from his rifle at the orders of the police. Several members who had their faces covered told the publication that they were afraid of their identities being revealed for fear of harassment.

Police told local news that ordinance allows people to possess weapons but ammunition can’t be with the weapon, adding that ordinance prohibits open carry anywhere in the city unless the individual has a concealed-carry permit.

Antifa’s Victims Share One Thing In Common — And The Media Is Totally Ignoring It

Proponents of the far-left extremist antifa movement claim that it is nothing more than a response to the rise of fascism in the United States. However, many victims of antifa-driven violence have been white men unconnected to fascist or white supremacist organizations—including disabled old veterans and free speech supporters. So why is a progressive movement biased against a single demographic in particular?

The anarchist movement’s violence against white men is rooted in academia. Intersectional feminists on campuses teach their students about “heteropatriarchy” (or patriarchy, for short) and other pillars of white supremacy, including sexism, colonialism, orientalism, capitalism, colorism, and a host of other -isms that are all said to oppress everyone today — except for white men.

Conveniently enough, minorities who disagree with the orthodoxy and its “intersections of oppression” are said to suffer from “internalized oppression” caused by the white supremacist society they supposedly live in. Because white men are considered the “oppressor,” most of antifa’s assaults have been committed against white men. The victims included white male progressives — and those who simply look like white men.

In the months since Donald Trump’s election to office, white men have been the victims of antifa violence across the United States and Europe. In February 2017, antifa thugs and Black Lives Matter activists in London assaulted a man holding up a sign that read “the right to openly discuss ideas must be defended,” whom they accused of being a Nazi.

There was no shortage of anarchist violence at the University of Washington in early April, when black clad protesters scuffled with police and assaulted a white male Trump supporter. Through the use of “black bloc” tactics — dressing in full black and moving as a cluster — the group was able to maintain its anonymity as it harassed students.

 

During the Berkeley “Free Speech Rally” in mid-April, black-clad antifa supporters assaulted a disabled veteran who was sitting in a wheelchair by dumping liquid onto him as he attempted to speak to them peacefully. A man who stood between antifa and the veteran was robbed of his cellphone by another masked antifa thug.

During the same protest, an antifa protester assaulted (though this description is generous, she was half his size) a photojournalist for attempting to put out the fire that the group set.

The most egregious instance of violence happened during the same protest, when Eric Clanton, a professor at Diablo Valley College and antifa supporter, was captured on video smashing a Trump supporter in the head with a bike lock.

Antifa’s assaults were not limited to Trump supporters or disabled military veterans. During a protest in Boston in August, a liberal who refused to denounce all white people as white supremacists was sucker-punched in the back of the head by an antifa thug.

Of course white men aren’t the only targets of antifa violence. In a New York Times report, a Syrian Muslim student at UC Berkeley was assaulted by antifa members who accused him of merely looking like a white man. He was told that he “looked like a Nazi.” He was pepper-sprayed and hit with a rod before he could offer a reply.

If there was a gang just going around assaulting members of any other demographic, there would be blood in the streets and the newspapers would be plastered with headlines condemning the group.
