Not sure how significant these people are in the big scheme of things. Seems like for decades now there have been these self-styled anarchist and anti-racist skin-head violent mini-groups running around, looking to the outside observer very much like the violent racist skinhead groups they supposedly oppose. Some young thugs gravitate back and forth among the various groups; this strikes me just as soccer hooliganism with a political gloss. Probably the greatest danger these groups pose is illustrated unintentionally in the photo by the undercover cop. These lame brains are made to order for LE provocateurs just as are the doofuss jihadists whose plots are constantly being thwarted in the nick of time.
Our priest’s (ex-Roman Catholic – left that Church for tradish Anglicanism to get married and have children) son wore the same anti-swastika patch as Behrle on his ass/bluejeans and made a big, vocal deal about it IN THE MIDDLE OF HIGH MASS. Nice, huh?
HB, I commented at the time of the last cancelled AmRen conference that having this happen two years in a row smacked of AmRen intentionally seeking the publicity of being shut down. If AmRen wanted to, they could pick unassailable locations. There are racist goups more militant by far who meet regularly without interference from these black shirt hoodlums and who would administer to them a good thrashing if they ever showed up.
Antifas are communists. Usually spoiled kids with nothing else to do. They list Lenin, Marx and the like on their websites. Amren has jewish and American indians as speakers. If these guys are so right, then why don’t they debate?…because they’re no better and have no leg to stand on. They don’t show up to black panther rallies or la raza events. Antifa groups are easy to spot, easy to infiltrate and easy to pick off. They claim groups like Amren are trying to take away their freedom of speach, but yet they wish to squash other peoples freedom of speech through violence. Hypocrites. Communists. Assholes.
Bruce, you’re seeing some political calculation on the part of the antifas where I’m just seeing a cowardly reluctance to take on people who are maybe a couple of orders of magnitude meaner than they are. Certainly all my impressions are second and third hand.
Harrison, allow me to introduce you to Kirt “Naysayer” Higdon.
Kirt, if you don’t see the significance of groups like OPP shutting down AmRen conferences then I’m not sure what I can say that would convince you. Although I don’t disagree that these people are cowards. I have often thought that AmRen should hire private security and just bull ahead. The “we had to cancel due to threats of violence against us” gives off the wrong vibe, IMO. (See my Dr. Douglas vs. Alex Knepper post.)
Also, it was foolish for AmRen to try to book a private hotel a second year in a row. It was as predictable as clockwork how that would go down.
With a public venue with public security (and private security if necessary), the event would go off without a hitch with OPP protesting powerlessly outside and maybe even a few getting arrested.
Bruce and Red, I don’t see how we are in disagreement on the antifa jerks. Our disagreement apparently is with respect to AmRen and specifically Taylor. I see him as pursuing a strategy of victimization to get publicity. You all see him as meek and mild and foolish. My view may be excessively cynical and charge him with too much Machiavellianism, but the two of you seem to present him as a wimpy out of touch academic who can’t even learn from experience. Let’s see how this plays out next year or at the next conference.
Damn straight were violent. we take care of the shit most of you wish you could but are too cowardly to do anything about. when your complaining about it we are taking care of it so of course illegal action must be taken. you cant work within a system built to protect fascisim. if you think peaceful protest changes anything you might as well be shot cuz thats what they’ll do to you if you let them. if you think that this is totalitarian maybe you should read a book on the subject or just any book. I agree that most nazis discredit themselves in the public eye but the public eye doesn’t mean shit to them. they will still kill and rape people in the name of race and im not gonna stand by and watch corrupt and inept police and government do nothing. many anti-fa look like “nazi” becasue they’re are REAL skin heads working class black, mexican, jewish, and everything else. you obviously don’t know your history. Anti-fa certainly are not rich snobby dumbshit “i wanna be a journalist and spread misinformation” kids like you. I can’t wait for you guys to be screaming for anti-fa when your face to face with some numbskull nazi. as far as politics some are communist but theres no doctrine. anti-fa is a global movement that doesn’t just take on the red neck douch bags but also those masked politicians and buisness men. fuck la raza and fuck the panthers they are nationalists and support black and brown pride, those are the liberal fascists.
the sad thing is writting this is useless because all people like you do is talk. i hope the fence you walk on burns.
antifa, why are there no adults in your movement? Why do you hide your faces? Why do you believe that you are the “protectors” of other racers made up of mature adults who certainly do not need a gang of slacker thugs to protect them? Isn’t that a bit patronizing on your part?
It’s ludicrous to claim that Taylor deliberately pursed a “strategy of victimization.” Surely even Taylor must realize that no one who is pro-white will ever be seen as a victim under any circumstances. Even the majority of so-called conservatives have been so blinded by multiculturalist propaganda as to consider the end of the white race to be either an inevitability, or even desirable, in favour of a miscegenated, mulatto, deracinated rabble.
If Taylor had suffered violence, the media would STILL not present him as a victim. Surely Taylor must realize this. If he doesn’t, he’s a fool.
No, I am sure that Taylor thought that his contract protected him, and was mortified when he was outflanked, yet again, by the left.
He’s organized the conference the same way for nearly 20 years, right? I guess I could understand him giving it a 2nd chance. If he does the same thing again next year, then maybe Kirt’s interpretation isn’t far off. Of course, he try something new next year and still be thwarted.
As I recall, the idea this year was to not announce the specific location until right before the conference so he does seem to have tried to make it happen.
