Will the Real Fascists Please Stand Up?
- Written by Alan Bergstein
This past weekend, a bunch of white supremist thugs marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, protesting the removal of some Confederate statues. As repugnant and vile as these people and their ideas are, they are guaranteed the right to assemble and picket peacefully by our Constitution. By all accounts the white racists had permits to demonstrate. Their protest was met by a bunch of highly organized thugs representing the radical Left who broke through police lines to attack the Unite the Right demonstrators with flame throwing materials, bottles and sticks leading to a full scale riot. There is no evidence that the counter protestors had the legal right to be on the streets. A vehicle apparently driven by a member of Vanguard America rammed into what the NY Daily News referred to as the, “Anti-Fascist good guys,” and killed a Left Wing counter demonstrator. These were two groups of “haters” battling it out on the streets. We have no love for either.
But let’s get to the MSM’s coverage of this disaster. How was this event reported differently from, let us say, the massive civil violence in Ferguson or Baltimore? The anarchy in these two cities were basically outspokenly, overtly anti-white riots that led to the burning down of white owned businesses, the beatings of whites and the injuries to dozens of law enforcement officers. Yet, at no time, in any media coverage were the perpetrators referred to as fascists, racist white haters or terrorist thugs. Their violence was attributed to the social ills plaguing these municipalities. They were described as merely acting out their well known grievances against the white establishment and were written up as sort of… deserving pats on the backs.
So, let’s take a look at the Radical Right’s numbers here. The Vanguard America organization mentioned above has, according to the ADL, about 200 members in 13 states and the KKK has a membership of 3000. No figures or even a website on Unite the Right is available. In contrast, the radical Left groups that include Black Lives Matter, the Students for Justice in Palestine, the Occupy Movement, Antifa and the thousands of university students who create havoc, burn down university buildings, torch cars, evict by force white students from their dorms and prevent speakers whose views differ from theirs to address audiences, number in the tens of thousands.
And the Radical Left does not ever bother to get permits for their anarchy. They are never called out for their violence and hatred because they are the darlings of the MSM.
Let us state here that we decry and oppose all anti-American, anti-democracy, anti law and order movements, be they from the Left or Right. But let’s stick to our rules of law and give each the freedom to demonstrate legally, peacefully and without violence. And to close, we note that the initial demonstration in Charlottesville was to protest the removal of statues of heroes of the Confederate States. If they are taken down, we suggest that they be placed in a museum dedicated to the history of the Democrat Party that supported slavery, spawned and filled the rosters of the KKK and until the mid 1960’s still voted against civil rights laws. Let the sunlight of truth shine on the party’s legacy.
