Growing Anti-Racist Movement Confronts White Right at Their Level…By Breaking Heads

“White supremacists are like rabid dogs…Just like rabid dogs, putting them down is always the most humane approach.” -Unidentified HARM Member

 

The white-right are a band of Chumph supporters with tactics descended from the KKK, whose tactics include beatings, bombings, murder, and attacking minorities whenever they get a 5 or 10 to one advantage.

During the Civil Rights era, they could commit their crimes safe under the umbrella of local Police, and all-white juries made up of people who shared their beliefs.

They are hoping, the Chumph will bring back their heydays of being unaccountable for their nefarious and often violent actions.

They have also been secure that under MLK’s non-violence based philosophy – no one seriously confronted them with much more than words.

That’s changed.

Striking Back, the Anti Racist Movement and the Tinley Park Five

At lunchtime on May 19, 2012, 18 masked men and women shouldered through the front door of the Ashford House restaurant in Tinley Park, Illinois, a working-class suburb of Chicago. Some diners mistook the mob for armed robbers. Others thought they might be playing a practical joke. But Steven Speers, a stalactite-bearded 33-year-old who had just sat down for appetizers at a white nationalist meet and greet, had a hunch who they were. The gang filing in with baseball bats, police batons, hammers, and nunchucks were members of Anti-Racist Action (ARA) and the Hoosier Anti-Racist Movement (HARM), two groups dedicated to violently confronting white supremacists.

“Hey, bitches!” one of the anti-racists shouted before charging Speers’ table. “ARA is going to fuck this place up!”

Speers stood up and warned his seven companions to prepare to fight. His girlfriend, Beckie Williams, who had organized the lunchtime gathering on the white supremacist website Stormfront, grabbed a butter knife. Francis Gilroy, a homeless man who had driven up from Florida to find “work for whites,” as an online ad for the meeting promised, tried to pull the attackers off his companions. Williams was clubbed on the arm. Speers was hit on the head so hard he vomited.

An 80-year-old woman celebrating her granddaughter’s high school graduation at a nearby table was also pushed to the floor. A retired cop who believed he was witnessing a terrorist attack used a chair to knock out one of the masked intruders. That’s when they ran off, dragging their dazed companion.

In less than two minutes, the anti-racists had unleashed a flurry of destruction. A mosaic of smashed glass covered the floor. Blood polka-dotted the ceiling. Three people required medical care.

Jason Sutherlin

One group of attackers raced away in a cherry red Dodge Neon. Jason Sutherlin, a 33-year-old with the words “TIME BOMB” tattooed across his knuckles, rode shotgun. His half-brother Dylan drove, and his half-brother Cody, along with their cousin John Tucker, squeezed into the backseat with 22-year-old Alex Stuck, who’d been decked in the restaurant. They sped toward Interstate 80, which would take them home to central Indiana.

An off-duty police sergeant who’d heard a radio call about the attack spotted the Neon and turned on her siren. When she looked inside the parked car, amid the sweaty men she saw a baton, a baseball cap that said “Anti-Racist,” and a black and red scarf spelling out “HARM.” The men were arrested and charged with felony mob action and aggravated battery, which together carried up to seven years behind bars. (Speers and Gilroy were also arrested—Speers for a charge of possessing child pornography.)

Sutherlin and his four compatriots would soon come to be known as the Tinley Park Five. Though they had launched the Hoosier Anti-Racist Movement just six months earlier, the attack would make them the public faces of a small yet militant movement that had been waging war on right-wing extremists for decades. HARM was part of Anti-Racist Action, a national group that had spent more than 20 years trying to expose and combat radical right-wing activity with tactics that ranged from counseling kids in neo-Nazi gangs to harassment and physical violence. Most of their actions received little attention, though they occasionally made headlines, like after the 2002 Battle of York, where ARA members attacked a white supremacist march in a Pennsylvania town, or the time in 2009 when pepper-spray-wielding ARA members broke up a New York City speech by the British Holocaust denier David Irving. But mostly, this war was invisible beyond the predominantly white working-class youths caught up in it.

White Nationalist and kiddie porn pedophile

As the election of Donald Trump has ushered white supremacists and their ideas from the fringes to the mainstream, their most militant foes have also come out of the shadows. On Inauguration Day, Richard Spencer, the white nationalist who coined the term “alt-right,” was punched in the face on a Washington, DC, street corner. The blow was caught on video, spawning countless remixes and a debate over the ethics and efficacy of “Nazi punching.” That same night, a Trump supporter shot and wounded an anti-fascist, or “antifa,” who was protesting a speech by Breitbart provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of Washington in Seattle. Less than two weeks later, “black bloc” protesters in Berkeley, California, helped force the cancellation of another Yiannopoulos speech, setting fires, smashing windows, and punching a Milo fan. Nationwide, new militant groups like Redneck Revoltare recruiting the next generation of activists who believe that white liberals are not up to the challenge of beating back right-wing extremists. The story of HARM’s rise and fall is a prequel to this moment, and a revealing tale about an underground war that’s been simmering for years and may now be poised to explode.

The seed for HARM was planted in People’s Park, a tangle of trees and footpaths in downtown Bloomington, Indiana, where in 1968 an African American graduate student named Clarence Turner opened a small store called the Black Market. In a state with a long history of white supremacism (in 1925, nearly one-third of all adult white males there belonged to the Ku Klux Klan, and the governor was a sympathizer), the shop celebrated African and African American culture by selling dashikis and Malcolm X speeches. A few months after it opened, two Klan members firebombed it on Christmas. “This will not be an open season on niggers,” Turner shouted during a rally in front of the ashen skeleton of his shop.

By the 1990s, People’s Park had become a hangout spot for punks, ravers, hippies, petty drug dealers, and college kids looking to score. It was there around 1996 that Jason Sutherlin met Telly, another teen from a nearby town. Telly introduced Sutherlin to Nomad, a hulking, half-Puerto Rican tattoo artist. (These names are aliases that they asked me to use to avoid being targeted by white supremacists; the investigation into the Tinley Park assaults is ongoing.) Long before they would become leaders of the local anti-racist movement, the three teens “chased the same cute punk girls,” Sutherlin recalls. “At first, they were my competition, but then we became pals.”

The trio shared a love of hip-hop and punk and a hatred for bullies. It was at house parties and concerts that they got their first introduction to Indiana’s numerous white supremacist gangs—specifically, the Hammerskins and the Vinlanders Social Club. Sutherlin recalls attending a show where a Hammerskin stabbed a Latino kid. At another show, concertgoers tried to kick out a group of neo-Nazis, one of whom fired a gun into the air. (More recently, three Vinlanders nearly beat a homeless black man to death in Indianapolis in 2007.) Sutherlin was shocked by the neo-Nazis’ boldness, but he was just as impressed by how the older punks stood up to them. “That culture of not taking any shit seeped into my consciousness.”...Read the Rest Here

More Chumph Confederate Racists Go to Jail

About a year ago in Douglasville, Ga a bunch of Trumpazoid confederate flag waiving scum decided they were going to tell the world that “the flag” wasn’t about racism, it was about “pride”.

Nothing says “pride” more than crashing a child’s birthday party, calling her racist names, and pulling a gun on her.

Racist Assault At A Child’s Birthday Party Yields Long Prison Terms In Georgia

A Georgia judge has sentenced Kayla Norton, 25, and Jose “Joe” Torres, 26, to spend a combined 19 years in prison for their role in a group’s racist rampage at an 8-year-old’s birthday party — an assault that included shouting racial slurs, making armed threats and waving Confederate battle flags.

“I’m so sorry that happened to you,” Norton told the family that endured the assault, weeping in the courtroom at Monday’s sentencing. “I am so sorry.”

After telling the court that she accepted responsibility for her actions, Norton turned to the area of the courtroom where families who attended the birthday party were seated.

“But I want you all to know that that is not me,” Norton told them. “That is not me.”

Norton and Torres, who are not married, have three children together. Prosecutors say they were part of a gang of white supremacists who targeted African-Americans with racist taunts and threatened to murder minorities.

In court Monday, both Norton and Torres sat hunched over and crying after Superior Court Judge William “Beau” McClain handed down his sentence: 13 years in prison and seven years’ probation for Torres, and six years in prison with nine years’ probation for Norton. Both of them are also banished from Douglas County, McClain said.

The sentencing comes weeks after a jury found Torres and Norton guilty of making terroristic threats and violating the Georgia Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act. The jury also convicted Torres of aggravated assault. Although Georgia doesn’t have a law specifying a hate crime, that’s the term both McClain and District Attorney Brian Fortner used to describe the group’s behavior.

The assault occurred in July 2015, one month after a racist gunman killed nine worshippers at a historically black church in Charleston, S.C. Prosecutors say Norton, Torres and other members of a group that called itself “Respect the Flag” went on an alcohol-fueled racist spree in Douglas and Paulding counties, west of Atlanta.

With Confederate battle flags affixed to the beds of their pickup trucks, the group gathered for a ride that was purportedly meant to celebrate the flag’s heritage.

“However, Paulding County 911 began immediately receiving calls that members associated with this group were threatening African American citizens at various locations in Paulding County and hurling numerous racial slurs in the process as well,” according to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office.

After threatening black motorists, the group headed to Douglasville, where they happened upon an outdoor birthday party that included a cookout and bouncy castle.

“Victims and witnesses from the party, who were predominantly African-American, testified to observing the group of trucks whose passengers were hurling a litany of racial slurs at them as they passed by,” prosecutors said.

Several members of the group — some of whom are now serving prison terms of their own — got out of their trucks and approached the partygoers, threatening to kill them all. According to their fellow defendants and witnesses, it was Norton who retrieved Torres’ shotgun — a tactical 12-gauge with a pistol grip — and loaded it before giving it to him.

Cellphone footage from the party shows police attempting to form a barrier in front of the families as the trucks drove off.

During his trial, Torres told the court he was carrying the shotgun for this own defense. But he then acknowledged lying to police about the gun — and to selling the weapon before he was arrested.

Months after the attack, the “Respect the Flag” group was indicted as a street gang by a Douglas County grand jury.

“They recognized that it was not about flying a flag but it was about pointing a shotgun at other people and threatening to kill them because of the color of their skin,” Fortner said Monday.

Testifying for the victims at Monday’s sentencing, Hyesha Bryant, who attended the party, said she forgave the couple.

“I never thought this would be something I’d have to endure in 2017,” Bryant said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “As adults and parents, we have to instill in our children the values of right and wrong. That moment you had to choose to leave, you stayed.”

Nationwide Boycott of Uber Flushes CEO From Trump Council

Another success in taking your money away from Trump Nazis. The wallet is powerful force in eliminating fascism

Another Chumph supporter, this one the President of Uber, learns a financial lesson about the difference between the cities, and the great dead red zone. You have a product dependent on the multi-cultural, multi-racial urban market…Then you better not stand with bigots.

Uber CEO Leaves Business Council After Criticism From Trump Opponents

The CEO of Uber, Travis Kalanick, has resigned from President Trump’s economic council made up of U.S. business leaders. His resignation comes after a consumer campaign to boycott the ride hailing company because of Kalanick’s association with the Trump administration.

In an email to staff, obtained by NPR, Kalanick said, “Joining the group was not meant to be an endorsement of the President or his agenda but unfortunately it has been misinterpreted to be exactly that.”

Since Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries came down last week it has sparked widespread protests. Many Uber customers were outraged when Uber lowered its prices while taxi drivers were on strike at New York City’s JFK airport over the order. The price drop was perceived as a move to take advantage of the strike and draw business away from the taxis. Uber denies this was the case. But, it helped fuel a Dump Uber campaign.

In Kalanick’s email to employees the CEO pointedly rejected any ban on immigrants or refugees. He wrote: “The executive order is hurting many people in communities all across America. … Immigration and openness to refugees is an important part of our country’s success and quite honestly to Uber’s.”

Trump’s council is made up of some of the wealthiest chief executives in the country — among them: Mary T. Barra of General Motors, Robert A. Iger of Disney and Virginia M. Rometty of IBM.

Another reason to buy a Ford, get a Dell, and not go to Disneyland after the Superbowl.

Trump KKK Attacks Woman Mistaking Cancer Patient’s Hat for Hijab

Pitiful that the Chumph KKK types are attacking defenseless people…

‘Get the f**k out’: Bigots mistake lupus patient’s head covering for hijab and smash her car window

A California woman said that she received a threatening note and her car window was smashed all because her head covering was mistaken for a Muslim hijab.

Nicki Pancholy, 41, told KNTV that she has been hiking up Mission Peak in Fremont in the name of peace for the past 49 days. And on Monday, she dedicated her hike to bringing collective harmony after a brutal election season.

But when she came down from the peak, she discovered that her car window had been smashed. A note on the hood of her car suggested that the suspect mistakenly believed that she was Muslim.

“Hijab wearing bitch this is our nation now get the f— out,” the note said.

“When I saw it, I was in shock,” Pancholy recalled. “That someone would feel so much hate to do this. I realize that this is the climate after this election. But I didn’t realize someone would be so ignorant and in so much pain to cause so much harm.”

In video of the incident posted to Facebook, she speculates that her attacker was in “pain” after the election, and she prayed for the “well being” of the suspect.

Pancholoy explained to KNTV that her ethnicity is Rajastani Indian, and that her religion is love, not Islam. She said that scarf covering her head was for sun protection because she suffers from lupus.

Pancholy’s purse and checkbook were also stolen from the vehicle. The attack is being investigated as a hate crime by East Bay Regional Park Police.

Watch the video report below from KNTV.

More Trumpazoid Hate Attacks

More Trump Gestapo attacks…

‘You should be scared’: Trump supporters assault black woman with a brick and threaten to rape her

Kara Stevens -- KOIN screenshotAn Oregon woman has filed a police report saying she was assaulted with a brick and threatened with rape by three men, with one telling her, “Now we got a president who finally feels how we feel.”

According to KOIN, Kara Stevens stated that she was on her way into a Safeway store the day after the election when she was blindsided by a brick thrown at her, hitting her in the abdomen.

“I just thought to myself, if I pass out from not being able to breathe and I hit the ground, it’s over,” Stevens said, adding, “I heard someone yell ‘Stupid n****r b*tch.’”

Stevens described her assailants as three white men in their 30s or 40s who shouted at her and made references to President-elect Trump.

“They yelled ‘Are you scared? Are you scared now? Because you should be,’ and then they said ‘Now we got a president who finally feels how we feel.’”

According to Stevens she first drove home after the attack, only to go to the emergency room where doctors told her she suffered broken ribs from the assault.

Stevens told KOIN that she hopes nobody ever has to go through what she went through.

“The only thing I kept thinking to myself is, ‘This is how my life is going to end,’ and ‘I don’t deserve this,’” she said.

Hillsboro police are investigating the assault as a possible hate crime.

Laughing men assault Ohio student after telling her ‘President Trump says this is OK’: report

Brittany Daughenbaugh, who claims she was assaulted by two Trump supporters, shows off bruises on her face (Facebook photo).

A student at Capital University claims that she was attacked by two Trump supporters last week — and she says they used their candidate’s fondness for grabbing women without permission as justification.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that student Brittany Daughenbaugh has told police that she was out for a walk and playing Pokemon Go on Thursday evening when she was accosted by two men who grabbed her by the arm.

“While these men were making the decision to violate my being, they were laughing and shouting,” Daughenbaugh wrote in a Facebook post.

“Don’t you worry, honey,” one attacker allegedly told her. “President Trump says this is OK.”

They then proceeded to punch her in the face and knock her to the ground, where she blacked out after her head hit the pavement.

Police in Bexley are investigating the alleged incident and are looking for two white men in their late teens or early 20s. Daughenbaugh told authorities that one of the men was dressed in a Trump-Pence sweatshirt, while the other wore a “Make America Great Again” hat.

“I don’t know what is better, that this is something they would have done anyway, or they were empowered to do it by his election,” she told the Dispatch.

Daughenbaugh sought treatment at a nearby hospital, where she was found to have a minor concussion, along with a bruised face and ribs.

Chumph’s Racist Supporters Death Threats Letter Campaign

First Las Vegas –

Then a small town in Mass…

Pro-Trump letters warn minorities to leave town or die: ‘We cleared the White House of n****rs’

Minority residents of a small Massachusetts town have received death threats warning them to leave town in the wake of Donald Trump’s election.

A Natick man revealed on Facebook over the weekend that he had received multiple threatening letters that made reference to the president elect.

“WE HAVE JUST CLEARED THE WHITE HOUSE OFF N****RS!!!!” a handwritten note received on Nov. 10 said. “DO NOT BRING N****RS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD—YOU FUCK LATINOS NOW YOU FUCK N****RS. WE KILL THEM.”

The letter added: “NATICK IS STRICTLY WHITE.”

The next day, the man received a second warning, but this time it was typed.

“This is a serious warning. Natick has a zero tolerance for black people,” the message advised. “We tolerated the latinos now you are going total black. This trash belong to Dorchester. We have reclaimed our country back by selecting Trump and you are messing up everything. Our kids and our pets are scared to death.”

In a statement over the weekend, Natick Superintendent Peter Sanchioni and other city officials condemned the hate speech.

“We stand at the ready to ensure that no person will be mistreated, discriminated against, or excluded based on gender, race, class, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, learning style, abilities, or political party,” the statement said.

Chief James G. Hicks told Mass Live that the incident was being investigated as a “possible hate crime.”

“This kind of behavior is not indicative of the values of the Town of Natick and will not be tolerated in our community,” Hicks insisted. “The department is taking this case very seriously and we will investigate to our fullest capabilities to ensure the safety and security of our residents.”
