Joey Gibson’s Gamble

Joey Gibson is having his Freedom March tomorrow afternoon in Portland. It will likely be the biggest clash in the streets with Antifa since Charlottesville:

“Today was good in terms that we showed that there’s a political move right now to have the police stand down in order to impact free speech in some of these big cities,” Patriot Prayer’s leader Joey Gibson told KOIN. “Portland’s the last city on the West Coast that’s doing that, so we just have to keep hitting it — I don’t see what else to do other than that. We’ll make Portland so ugly in terms of how they allow these protesters to charge us when we have a permit.”

This weekend, Portland is bracing for round two. Gibson, who is running as a Republican for a U.S. Senate seat from Washington, is planning to hold a “Freedom March” on Saturday at the city’s waterfront, the Portland Mercury reported.

It’s shaping up to be a possible tinderbox. Fringe-right media outlets like Alex Jones’s Infowars have promoted the event, and Gibson has reportedly promised that followers from across the country will attend, including members of the Proud Boys, a self-described “western chauvinist” group known for their distinct Fred Perry polo shirts. …”

Gibson has a track record of winning these battles with Antifa. He baited them into rioting in Berkeley last August which killed their momentum following the backlash to Charlottesville. Nancy Pelosi was forced to condemn them after the bad optics emerged of Antifa beating up children. Rufio Panman became a national hero after decking an Antifa thug in the riot in Portland last month.

As I understand it, the goal of the Freedom March is to go into Portland and test whether Mayor Ted Wheeler will issue another stand down order to the police. He is already in the news because the Portland Police allegedly refused to respond to 911 calls from ICE. No one knows whether the Portland Police will do their jobs and maintain law and order at this volatile event.

I’m just going to go on the record and say that this rally is a gamble. We’re all on edge waiting to see how this event in Portland is going to play out. If it goes wrong and someone gets seriously hurt, it is easy to see the Charlottesville 2.0 narrative already being set up. Even though Gibsonfest is going to be a purely civic nationalist event, there could be a major fallout from it that impacts everyone with another round of lawfare, deplatforming and demonization in the media. Alternatively, it is easy to see the Freedom March going well. There could be another viral Rufio knockout moment. There could be another Berkeley that galvanizes the Patriot movement. The best case scenario is that the Portland Police do their jobs, keep both sides separated and Gibson declares victory for forcing the issue.

Who knows though? How many of these rallies will it take to drive home the point that leftwing cities are issuing stand down orders to the police and allowing Antifa to engage in violence? Why hasn’t the Trump Justice Department already done something about it? Are we just going to have another one of these rallies that devolves into violence because Jeff Sessions is asleep?

We saw last year after Charlottesville how quick the GOP was to throw us under the bus. Ultimately, it is only the Justice Department which can intervene and force these cities to stop issuing stand down orders to the police. It doesn’t seem inclined to do anything about the problem though. In order to wake up Jeff Sessions, Joey Gibson is willing to take the risk of becoming another Based Stickman, which is to say loaded down with charges and mired in frivolous lawsuits.

I hope this goes well because I share Joey Gibson’s goal of ending these police stand down orders and allowing free speech and free assembly in leftwing strongholds. I also despise violent Antifa who are the scum of the earth. I just hope Joey isn’t walking into a trap.

  1. “As I understand it, the goal of the Freedom March is to go into Portland and test whether Mayor Ted Wheeler will issue another stand down order to the police.”

    If the Jewish Kommissars who run Antifa are smart, they’ll back off of this and let the Alt-Right flail at empty air. Otherwise, they’ll just prove Gibson’s point, and actually fulfill his operational objective. They’re better off biding their time and staging a surprise event at a later date, where their opponents we won’t be present.

    But, as we all know, being schizophrenic Jewish maniacs, they won’t be able to resist.

    We’ll see what happens.

  2. “”…..Why hasn’t the Trump Justice Department already done something about it? ….””

    My best bet is that Trump waits Reichstag fire. Normie must freaked out before normie agrees that something has to be done.

    USSR brought down this way. We raised tensions until liberal left lost nerves and brought tanks to the streets. Then normie freaked out and agreed that USSR must be gone.

  3. I’m certain that the costs of maintaining the Potland police are very high, for tax slaves; salaries, OT, pensions, medical care, etc. WHY are they needed if they refuse to do what they are paid to do?

    • Those idiotic conservative “patriots” will never realize one simple thing, madam: The pigs are NOT your friends.

    • @Denise

      Remember the old saying; “The boys in blue serve the Jew.”

      That’s what they’re payed to do.

      They keep crime under control just enough to prevent restlessness and discontent, and thus insurrection against the oligarchs©.

      They’re part of the system©, just like Antifa are.

  4. Robert Lewis Dabney’s indictment of Northern Conservatism never conserving anything was 100% correct. Unfortunately in his statement, Dabney didn’t go into immense detail but I think I can fill it in. From the time Thomas Jefferson succeeded John Adams in 1800, Northern Democrats soon began proving themselves worthless. They might have supported slavery, but the Northern Democrats refused any effort at quelling dissent in their home states under the doctrine of complete freedom of consience and expression one of Jefferson’s most ridiculous and odious idea. Even when Northern Democrats controlled their state governorships and legislatures although the First Amendment didn’t apply to the States, they refused to attack Abolitionism, citing Jefferson’s ridiculous ideas about free expression. Meanwhile the Southern Democrats employed occasional Police State tactics, even going so far as to arrest people at Post offices for receiving objectionable mail.

    The South called these Northern Democrats Doughfaces, as they were nothing to respect. By 1856 sensing the Northern Democratic Party in disarray many of these Doughfaces became Republicans, and did the exact same thing in the Republican Party.NOTHING. In Lincoln’s time there were three real wings of the Republican Party, the Business Wing, the Doughfaces, and the Radicals. The Business wing were complete whores, they would go with the Radicals when it seemed they would make more money. Following the 1872 Election, most of the Radicals were dead or began to join the Democratic Party. By the time of Dabney’s writing, you only had the Business Wing and the Doughfaces. The same people whose grandfathers had refused to stand against Abolitionism who criticized Jackson for closing the Bank and other countless garbage were running the Republican Party, while the Northern Democrats were becoming the party of Leftist Radicals, Jews, Catholics and an assorted number of human vermin. A gentlemen’s agreement was hatched between the Northern and Southern Democrats that the Northern Dems would support Jim Crow, if the South supported Leftist Legislation such as income taxes, and the worthless Southern Democratic establishment did just that. Thus by 1900 the Northern Democrats stood for Karl Marx and the Southern Democrats stood for Jim Crow and toleration of Karl Marx. Toleration was as bad as supporting it.

    Of course Dabney’s prediction held true, the limp wristed Republican Conservatives allowed female voting because the Marxist Democrats threatened their power base. They allowed Marxist Democrats to pack our courts. The South, short sighted as always, stood by and allowed it, because they didn’t seem to understand the long game. The entire time the Marxist Democrats were preparing to usurp and Destroy the South, the true heritage of the Radical Republicans, whose children were almost all Democrats. Once the Rockefellers took control of the Republican Party it was a fait accompli

    The wretched cowardice and greed of the bulk of the Southern Democrat Establishment allowed all of this to happen. I blame the Jews and the fact most of these Politicians, especially Southern ones follow the Satanic doctrine of Freemasonry.

    • It is well known, that, as a general rule, [Negroes] are a graceless, vagabondish set, and contribute very little to the support of the State by which they are protected. They are not citizens, never can become citizens, and wherever found in large numbers they are an expense and a source of trouble…

      The black race is an alien one on our soil; and nothing except his amalgamation with ours, or his subordination to ours, can prevent the rise of that instinctive antipathy of race, which, history shows, always arises between opposite races in proximity…

      The offspring of an amalgamation must be a hybrid race incapable of the career of civilization and glory as an independent race. And this apparently is the destiny which our conquerors have in view. If indeed they can mix the blood of the heroes of Manassas with this vile stream from the fens of Africa, then they will never again have occasion to tremble before the righteous resistance of Virginia freemen; but will have a race supple and vile enough to fill that position of political subjugation, which they desire to fix on the South.
      –Robert Lewis Dabney, “A Defense of Virginia”

      This present evil world cannot accept this man’s words. There is an account where Robert E Lee praised former Texas Governor Stockdale for speaking bold words concerning the South to a former Union General, something that General Lee was not at liberty to do and his reasons show why he may have seemed too cautious to express a bold pro-South opinion for reasons of the conditions at that particular time. Many/most condemn Dabney’s writings about this meeting/words of Lee and Stockdale as being fake. I personally think these authors are just erring on the side of political correctness so as not to be on record in saying any positive thing about Dabney.

      Dabney seems more truthful than any other man would dare to be especially in this present age.

  5. ALL this effort … all the resources … all the risk, co$t, etc., could be so much better spent focusing on re-booting the south. See, in a re-booted south … Antfagita wouldn’t be tolerated. CSA troops would, “take out the trash,” by whatever means necessary. Survivors would be fined every penny and then deported. Lately I’ve been wondering WHY we NEVER hear a peep about creating a Confederate States. I’ve come to the conclusion it can only be because of 1 of 3 things :

    1. Certain sites / groups / entities, are Fed’s acting as a honey pot to lure in what they call “white supremacists.”

    2. Certain groups / sites / entities are REALLY ignorant and wussy.

    3. Certain groups / sites / entities are ( mentally, ) envious immature little boys in big bodies.

    I’m leaning towards # 3 because it makes the most sense. Human psychology 301. When someone who may suffer from pride gives speeches and runs whatever entity, he may subconsciously see himself as a little god and us as his know nothing subjects. When one of the know nothing subjects presents a 10 of an idea :


    … a too prideful leaders subconscious will produce some thought ‘against’ the idea … BECAUSE HE DIDN’T THINK OF IT. My question is … do you want to ‘follow’ that leader ? He doesn’t see you as a team member, each with your own skills and gifts to bring to the table to help collectively achieve THE goal you all want, with him as a good wise foreman who keeps order and makes decisions with the elders. Nope. Him and his PRIDE will actually PREVENT you from reaching the promised land !

    Remedy ? Either Mr. Pride / Envy has to “put on his big boy pants,” or the know nothing subjects better find a new leader who knows a supernaturally inspired map to YOUR promised land when he sees one.


  6. The Left only supports free speech when it suits them. They can’t counter anything we say, so use voilence and intimidation to try and silence us.
    Yep-the Left believes in free speech…..their free speech.

    • @john

      “Yep-the Left believes in free speech…..their free speech.”

      They’re all for law and order, too. Except when it gets in their way. Then judges and policemen are bourgeois capitalist stooges who’ll be exterminated comes the “Revolution©®.”

  7. I think Trump is going to let the Left continue on their path of self immolation. It’s going to get a lot worse. I also thinking they’re flushing a lot of them out of the woodwork. The money being funneled, the web of operatives, the leadership hierarchy all need to be flushed out and it will take time. I do not believe Trump is doing nothing. Unfortunately, I think it’s going to take something catastrophic for the hammer to come down and maybe that’s what they’re waiting for. Or, I’m totally wrong.
