I won’t be attending the Unite The Right 2 rally in Washington, DC.
I feel the same way about this event that I felt about Joey Gibson’s rally in Portland. By holding these volatile public events, we’re gambling on the police showing up and doing their jobs. In Portland and Berkeley, the police went out of their way to prevent another Charlottesville. I suspect we will see a similar aggressive police response this weekend at Unite The Right 2.
But who knows? The Charlottesville Police were heavily criticized for “police brutality” after the Klan event last July. The Portland Police are now being investigated for their handling of the Joey Gibson rally. The Berkeley Police are also being criticized for doxing Antifa. The DC police have been criticized for over a year now for their handling of the Disrupt J20 protesters. Whether it is Portland, Berkeley, Charlottesville or Washington, DC, the police response has varied across events.
There is no consistency in how the police handle these large scale public events in leftwing cities. The police response is reactive and seems to seesaw between a hands off approach after accusations of “police brutality” to a very strong response to keep both sides separated. The one thing we know with absolute certainty is that Antifa will show up to engage in violence at Unite The Right 2. We can’t have any confidence though in how the police will manage these public events. We won’t find out until we are there physically present on the ground and by then it could be too late.
The League of the South narrowly avoided walking into another trap in Murfreesboro:
If I had to bet on it, I would say that Unite The Right 2 will likely to turn out like the recent events in Portland and Berkeley, but that is no guarantee. I don’t think it is worth the risk to walk into a potential trap. We already know that if violence breaks out in DC that the “woke” fake news media will blame us for it 24/7 nonstop no matter who starts it. They are already salivating about that potential scenario. I’m not interested in playing Russian roulette anymore with police stand down orders.
Personally, I think we are better off avoiding these people. I’ve said that we shouldn’t engage with Antifa at all anymore. Instead, we should let them riot against Patriot groups and MAGApedes. We should cheer them on as they scream racial epithets at ICE officers and deplatform Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens eating their breakfast. Let the mob go attack Mike Cernovich’s events like Deploraball and A Night For Freedom. Their own violence and extremism will polarize the public against them and transform them into a political albatross. They are nothing more than a mob of violent criminals who are looking for an excuse to destroy property, engage in violence and unleash mayhem.
I don’t believe it is in our interest to share the spotlight with Antifa. The biggest blows that Antifa have suffered – the DisruptJ20 riot, MILO at Berkeley, the riot at Berkeley last August and Portland last month – have come when they have been left alone to self destruct. When we refuse to engage these people, Antifa are on FOX News busting the windows out of Marine Corps recruiting offices, ripping the American flag out of the hands of elderly women and beating up teenagers.
Hundreds of Antifa were arrested in their quixotic Occupy ICE campaign. 20 Antifa were doxed and arrested in their pointless mobilization in Berkeley alone last weekend. Undoubtedly, even more Antifa will be doxed and arrested this weekend at “ShutItDownDC.” It makes more sense to just stay out of it and allow Antifa to continue to riot against their enemy “the State” and amass enormous medical and legal bills in fighting the police, not to mention criminal charges.
We don’t hold public events to engage with Antifa and their Journofa allies who tag along, but that is all that we are doing now with these publicly announced rallies. In Pikeville, Shelbyville and Newnan, we were locked up in steel cages and isolated from the public. Antifa are able to come to our events and create a siege mentality that costs these towns hundreds of thousands of dollars and disrupts our organizing. They are parasites who soak up the publicity and use these events to attract new followers. Journofa are happy to cast them as “the good guys” fighting the “bad guys.”
I believe we should still hold public events, but they should be privately organized and executed on our own terms. We need to do more events where hundreds of people organize privately and just show up unannounced. In addition to eliminating Antifa and Journofa from our events, we don’t need unvetted lunatics with their own agenda like Jeremy Christian showing up either. We don’t have to retreat to the internet to cut out the violence, doxing and lawfare from our events. We won’t have to worry about police stand down orders either when the police aren’t informed about our plans.
My official position on Unite The Right 2 is that I will be praying that the police do their jobs, everyone who goes stays safe and that it is another uneventful day like Berkeley last weekend. While I won’t be going to Unite The Right 2, I’m not going to condemn those who go and prematurely blame them for violence like some people are doing. After what has happened in this past year with the Alt-Right, I don’t want to be associated with the label anymore. The term “Unite the Right” will always be associated with the Alt-Right which has become increasingly tainted by violent incels.
I think we are better off moving on from big tent rallies. I want to return to focusing on Southern Nationalism and this is what I will be doing in the future.
Note: Good luck to those who are going.
