“I would like to see CNN evolve back to the kind of journalism that it started with, and actually have journalists,” claimed John Malone, the top shareholder of Discovery, which is poised to take over the network. pic.twitter.com/QnNhQwgBY0— Mediaite (@Mediaite) November 19, 2021
I heard that Elle Reeve wants to talk to me.
I finally that deeply hilarious. I did read her latest article though and will respond to her bizarre argument.
“(CNN) – A key federal defendant accused of conspiracy over the 2017 Unite the Right rally was forced this week to confront his own explicit calls for violence — and who should do the actual fighting — in the months before the deadly event unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia. …
What has become clear over three weeks of trial is that, for all their talk of brotherhood and unifying the White race, some in the White power movement expected others to carry out violence for the sake of their cause and considered those people disposable. …
So, who exactly was to be that “cannon fodder?
“The Charlottesville organizers have long said they didn’t know James Alex Fields, who murdered Heather Heyer with his car in the chaos after the Unite the Right rally, and that the violence wasn’t their fault. But their private communications unearthed by the plaintiffs reveal the White nationalists apparently anticipated violence in Charlottesville, even as they framed it among themselves as “self-defense.” …”
Did anyone want James Fields, Jr. to become “cannon fodder”?
None of the groups who went to Charlottesville knew that James Fields, Jr. even existed until the car wreck after the rally. He was thrown into a dungeon for years until his trial which is when we learned for the first time who he was and what happened that day. It also came out in the Sines v. Kessler trial that Fields wasn’t in the Discord chat. He was a loner who came to the event on his own.
According to Elle, we came to Charlottesville to engage in pointless violence with Antifa. It was our goal to be deplatformed from the internet. We wanted to get sued in federal court. We wanted all that bad publicity. We wanted to be denounced by Congress. We wanted some of our people to be railroaded by the FBI and DOJ. We wanted to get people doxxed and fired from their jobs. We brought our women to the event to get pepper sprayed. We brought a bunch of elderly men to the event to brawl with Antifa. We wanted our friends to go to prison. We wanted our people to have legal and medical bills. That’s what we set out to do by holding the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
In reality, the plan of the organizers in Charlottesville was a surprise torch march, the Unite the Right rally and an after party for socializing. The Charlottesville Police and Virginia State Police had months to prepare for the rally. There were more than enough police on the ground in Charlottesville to maintain order which was their job that day. We fully cooperated with the police and our gathering point in the Market Street Parking Garage was adjacent to the Charlottesville Police Department. The Nationalist Front groups didn’t participate in the torch march because word of it had leaked on It’s Going Down. The same groups also dispersed and left Charlottesville when the rally was declared an unlawful assembly and McAuliffe issued his “state of emergency” which he had ready to go before we even entered Lee Park.
It is not our fault that the police refused to do their jobs on August 12th and barricaded themselves away from the crowd and choose not to separate the two sides. It was not something we had anticipated or had ever seen before. We entered the park, waited for the Unite the Right rally to start and exited the park when it was cancelled. Then we left Charlottesville when ordered to do so. We could have paraded around Charlottesville for hours after the event starting small fights like Antifa. The Nationalist Front groups could have gone to the torch march and fought with Antifa. The people who were inside Lee Park socializing while waiting for the rally to start could have started a huge brawl in the streets. If we had violent intentions in going to Charlottesville, it simply would never played out the way that it did.
Charlottesville was an anomaly. There wasn’t any violence at dozens of previous events. There were events after Charlottesville like the White Lives Matter rally in Shelbyville. We specifically chose to hold a rally in Shelbyville to show that peaceful demonstrations could continue in other jurisdictions where the police are allowed to do their jobs. There were several other events in Tennessee after Shelbyville. Ultimately, we chose to completely cut Antifa out our events 4 or 5 years ago to ensure there was no more violence, as they are the only reason there is ever violence at these volatile public events.
It is important to distinguish between our strategic goals and tactics that advance our goals. You could say that our strategic goals are to demonize and discredit our opposition, to discredit “journalism” as fake news, to delegitimize and undermine the political establishment, to erode the dominant taboos and to gain political traction by making our views more acceptable and having them permeate the national conversation. When ordinary White people who are our natural base in rural areas and small towns are coming around to our views and the gap between us is narrowing, we are winning.
As a tactic, violence doesn’t help us advance our strategic goals. It has the opposite effect which is why it is not in our interest. If Heather Heyer had dropped dead of diabetes, no one would have ever given a shit about her life, which is why it is especially tragic that James Fields, Jr. who suffers from schizophrenia threw his life away. We don’t have anything to gain either from engaging in pointless street battles with Antifa. We don’t want unvetted and unstable people like Fields showing up at our events. We don’t think pointless street battles accomplish anything either which is why there hasn’t been any in years now.
As things stand today, we don’t really need to hold public events to advance our goals. We changed course after Charlottesville. Antifa have made themselves politically toxic without any assistance from us. “Journalists” have been discredited and will soon be fired en masse at CNN. White identity is surging along with support for secession. Taboos are eroding and our ideas are gaining traction with a much larger swath of the electorate. Normies have been radicalized to the point where they were the ones who stormed the Capitol. Joe Biden’s presidency is also tanking and Democrats are staring into the abyss.
In light of all this, why would we need mass shooters or car attacks or pointless street battles with Antifa or more exhausting legal battles? What would that accomplish? Maybe it would give useless surplus “journalists” like Luke O’Brien something to do and report on before they get laid off? Things are quiet right now and we should all hope that it stays that way and these trends continue.
