Rise Above Movement Cleared By Federal Judge

OC Register:

“LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A Los Angeles federal judge today dismissed all charges against three reputed members of a Southern California white nationalist group suspected of having incited brawls at political rallies.

U.S. District Judge Carmac J. Carney granted a defense motion dismissing charges against Robert Rundo, Robert Boman and Aaron Eason on grounds that the federal riots act — under which they were charged — “is unconstitutionally overbroad in violation of the First Amendment.’

A fourth defendant, Tyler Laube, pleaded guilty in November in Los Angeles to a single count of conspiracy to violate the federal Anti-Riot Act of 1968. The status of his case is not immediately clear.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Carney wrote in his order that the act goes beyond criminalizing the behavior of those acting in the midst of a riot.

“It also criminalizes acts taken long before any crowd gathers,” or acts that have only a slight connection to violence, according to Carney.

“No violence even need to occur,” the judge wrote. “A defendant could be convicted for renting a car with a credit card, posting about a political rally on Facebook, or texting friends about when to meet up.” …

This is excellent news.

3 of the 4 RAM members have had their charges dropped in the California case. The Blompf Justice Department went after them last October for defending the president’s own supporters from violent Antifa at Berkeley and Huntington Beach.

I think that the Rise Above Movement’s focus on health and physical fitness was a great addition to the 2.0 movement. In hindsight, it was a mistake, however, to wade into the political arena and get embroiled and smashed up in our current polarized politics. Instead of doing that, the Rise Above Movement should continue to focus on personal self improvement.

If we could only start organizing, say, fitness and MMA clubs of guys who do nothing but encourage going to the gym and living a healthy lifestyle that rejects drugs, porn and sexual degeneracy, then that would be wonderful. Truth be told, the leading cause of death in America is heart disease and suicide and drug overdoses are two of the other biggest killers of White folks.

Instead of drawing attention to Antifa and publicizing their violent cause, which was the MILO strategy, we should ignore them and do our own thing. They are only trolling us to draw attention to themselves anyway. Also, while they have been continuing with their stupid street theater posturing, we have been quietly stealing the issue of anti-capitalism away from them.

  1. A real, impartial judge who takes Constitutional law seriously? Is he the only one?

  2. It’s amazing! I am astonished and THRILLED that White men who literally did NOTHING wrong, and have been persecuted for self defense, have actually been vindicated.

  3. Regarding starting fitness clubs, given that Crossfit seems to be trending first amendment, we might could consider opening crossfit gyms, using their brand as a springboard.

    I have suggested this other places since Crossfit made a big deal of leaving faceberg. Doesn’t seem many of our keyboard warriors are interested in putting down the cheetos and doing anything irl. (See the keto cheescake post comments…)

  4. ISA:
    Crossfit option would b great. Have 2 near me. Are they viable ? What do you mean by trending first amendment?
