UnMasking the March

photo copy

We have written up quite a bit on Anonymous in the past, but not so much as of late because the Internet hive-mind has been on a bit of a hiatus (aside from DOXing the KKK and some murderous cops). This hasn’t stopped others, however, from co-copting the name and images of the internet hacker group to use for their own propaganda and political agendas. You remember Jamie Jo Corne from years back— well, there is a new co-opter in town and she is like a Sarah Palin of activism.

Christine Ann Sands

Christine Ann Sands

Recently, there was a march in Washington DC called the “Million Mask March” which was promoted as an “Anonymous” event. But how “Anonymous” was it? The woman behind the event is Christine Ann Sands, who gives out her info as:
Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 5.01.35 PM
We encountered Ms. Sands (or WhateverTheFuckHerNameis) while covering the crazy right-wing tea party event “Operation American Spring” (another clusterfuck of lunacy). She was trailing behind their meager march and homed in on any press like a heat seeking missile. Seriously, the most dangerous place in Washington is between Christine and a camera. We didn’t pay her any mind as we found her incredibly annoying and self-absorbed. We did a bit of research on her claims of activist fame and chose to ignore her– it’s the most effective technique to deal with people who thrive off unwarranted self importance.

Although Wonkette did give her some less than complimentary face time, she vanished into obscurity until she popped up when amateur leftist media sources were paying attention to the Million Mask March event in November of this year.

Digging into who this person is, she is obviously not really an Internet hacktivist at all– she is merely someone who has done several strange jobs in the past.

Oh how Mavericky!

Oh how Mavericky!

Her “internet activism” consists of trying to register as many URLs for other protest movements, like the OccupyDC protest, so she’s a glorified domain squatter.

We located a very interesting and pretty well researched pastebin on Ms Sands (or is it Mrs. Wahab?)

There are many accusations that this woman is a fed– and we are not ruling that out– but we are not going there yet

She does appear to be pretty well funded without any visible means of support ( she has a fancy painted up bus!) and even though her lunacy could very well be a ruse, she is apparently so flakey one would question if even the FBI would stoop to employ somebody this unhinged. She posted this long rant on her FB page:

Is there enough crazy here?

Is there enough crazy here?

Is she trying so hard to play a role that she is overdoing it? On the other hand… damn, this woman has some serious issues with reality.

Why is Russian Government TV involved?

Why is Kremlin TV involved?

Digging further, we also noticed that the Kremlin-funded Russia Today was also promoting this event. We are not the only ones who noticed this, as right wing blogger right wing blogger Kevin Tracy points out. Unfortunately, Tracy’s article is not accurate. He fails to expose who is really behind this event, claiming it was put together by actual Anonymous hackivists when it was not. He also fails to mention when Russia Today violated campaign finance laws to give the similarly unhinged Adam Kokesh airtime to use to raise money for the Ron Paul campaign.
Getting back to Ms Sands, she herself has been the doyenne of Russian government media quite few times.
Like Adam Kokesh, besides trying to co-opt Anonymous and the Occupy Movement (as both have tried to do) both were also involved with the right wing racist Ron Paul.

Christine has some opposition as well. The fellows we found who have the biggest beef with her are a chap named John Fairhurst and his comrades from Anti-Media who claim to be the original organizers of the march. We would feel a bit better about the march if they weren’t also Ron Paul supporters, but they are, in fact Fairhurst even asks Paul to come as speak at the Million Mask March on facebook thread.

Other Million March Organizers show an unsettling connection to rightwing/racist Ron Paul

Other Million March Organizers show an unsettling connection to rightwing/racist Ron Paul

There has been a long simmering movement coming from the third-position right wing to try to co-opt and manipulate leftist movements. Ms. Sands is part of that third position/Ron Paul/ pro-military revolutionary crowd who is trying to mislead disenchanted leftists into supporting something nefariously masked that they would normally be opposed to.

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 1.57.58 PM

We also speculate that she is connected to Charles Kacprowicz– he of the extreme right-wing pro-military extremist movement Operation American Spring. She has promoted information of his event on her facebook page.

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 2.02.40 PM

A word of caution for all leftists and anti-fascist activists: just because something looks revolutionary, it does not mean their goals are your goals. Ms. Sand is a right-winger and a conspiracy quack; she is tied in with pro-militia groups, Ron Paul and the right wing racist Russian government’s propaganda machine. The parallels between her and Adam Kokesh are almost identical.

A word for leftist amateur media- do your homework! Don’t be an unwitting propaganda tool!

Supporting this kind of façade is political suicide.

Right Wing Truckers And The Militia Movement To Terrorize DC For 3 days

HOW DOES I PROTAST GUVERNMINT

HOW DOES I PROTAST GUVERNMINT

Are we ready for yet another vague, half-baked protest against a bunch of nebulous concepts? I know I am! In fact, this protest is so nebulous and ineffective that even if everyone who claims to be attending actually does show up, you won’t even know it’s there. Fantastic. This one’s the rightfully oft-maligned Trucker protest that’s supposed to happen between October 11 and October 13. It should be patently ridiculous to all sentient life-forms, but the premise for this event is that a bunch of truckers are going to clog the Washington DC Beltway and then… do something. Honestly, we don’t know– their aims seem to change almost every hour– first, it was to demand the impeachment of Obama “for Benghazi”, then it was to demand Obama’s impeachment for unspecified “high crimes and misdemeanors,” then it was to demand the arrest of Obama, then it was to demand the impeachment of everyone in congress, and now (10/8) it’s to demand the arrest of elected officials who have “violated their oath of office.”

It doesn’t end there, though. Because this event is being organized (and we use that term in the loosest possible manner) by professional idiots, it’s drawn in the militia movement. Take a look at this screenshot from their Facebook group. Please note the antics of one Rich Miller, who’s from Erie, PA: “Are they picking up the militia yet ? Got about 20 souls and double that in arms.”

Hey, can you give me a ride to the undemocratic overthrow of the government by right-wing death squads?

Hey, can you give me a ride to the undemocratic overthrow of the government by right-wing death squads?

Not only does he think this is a TSHTF wet-dream, he wants the truckers to PICK HIM AND HIS BUDDIES UP. “Hey man, I want to overthrow the government and start up some right-wing death squads, but I DONT HAVE A RIDE!” It’s still anybody’s bet as to whether Rich Miller is yet another government provocateur or he really believes this bilge, but this entire event really did spawn from the patriot / militia scene.

This whole catastrophe is an outgrowth of the equally farcical “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment,” which is yet another Facebook-based campaign that believes it has some form of cosmic mandate because a handful of fools managed to scribble anti-Obama messages on bedsheets and hang them from highway overpasses. There’s a fair amount of commonality between the groups. We’ve not written about either of these drooling, amorphous things until now because we recognize that simply having a Facebook page with a thousand “likes” doesn’t mean a damned thing. But as the date gets closer and the story is picked up by more and more media outlets apparently hungering for something amusing to latch onto, we’re compelled to write about this mewling, adenoidal circus because they’re trying to worsen the traffic in our town.

Here’s a message straight to the heart of the trucker strike: traffic in this town is bad enough (in fact, it’s the absolute worst in the nation) and any affinity you may have had will be vaporized when you turn people’s typically hour-long commute into an interminable slog– or however long it takes to impound your rigs and seize your Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDLs). Second, if you were serious about your tactic of taking a major city hostage by way of clogging its major arteries, wouldn’t you have been better served by picking a city that actually has a transit system that isn’t in perpetual gridlock? Our highways degenerate into parking lots at THREE IN THE MORNING. Can’t you go back to Zanesville or Keokuk and instead terrorize THEM by hampering their ability for emergency services to save lives?

Something else is evidenced by this stunt, and that’s the majority of people really have no conception as to how Washington operates. Simple jokes about “does Washington work at all” aside, it’s as if people have no clue that this is a major metropolitan area just like any other, with the added factor that there are a lot more cops around. This isn’t Oz, there is no great and powerful wizard behind a curtain and you aren’t touched with some form of divine power just by existing in this point of the universe. Legitimate strikes conducted by actual workers have figured this out long ago– the most poignant example being the stirring example of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union routinely striking and shutting down ports in protest of the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq and in support of the Occupy movement.

Let’s tackle this mess from a practical standpoint: the beltway is four lanes in each direction and sixty-four miles in circumference. Given that the typical eighteen wheeler is sixty feet long, this would take forty five thousand and fifty six trucks to fill up all eight lanes of the beltway. Just how exactly are they supposed to trek the nine miles from the beltway to the Capitol itself to make these “arrests?” What are they going to slow down? The Maryland side of the beltway? The Virginia side? Which direction? Perhaps they’re merely ignorant of the fact that there are countless numbers of exits that people can use to get on the beltway if someone decides to snarl traffic. Who knows? Come October 14, this will be a humorous footnote to this year’s lackluster roster of protests.

We’re ashamed this also merits any amount of words in this piece, but let’s underscore it: this is not a “leftist” or “progressive” or “worker” related event. This event germinated in the bowels of the “patriot radio” crowd and the militia movement– both so intensely right wing they recently added disgraced Pennsylvania police chief Mark “Fuck You Libtards” Kessler to their ranks.

The irony of the entire event is that most of the truckers taking part are non-union, which means they’ll be losing time and money in this foolish escapade, and if they’re private drivers, they risk getting fired. With their rigs seized and CDLs suspended, how exactly are they supposed to find jobs? Well, if you’re a teabagger trucker, the solution is obvious: do as much stupid crap as you can, and when you get caught for breaking the law, blame Obama. Look, Obama didn’t suspend your CDL, Obama didn’t write you a ticket for reckless driving, Obama didn’t impound your rig, and Obama didn’t make you come to DC and ruin the commutes of millions of people to satisfy your infantile egos– that was your fault. Why not follow the advice of your own worn out slogans and take some personal responsibility for your own actions?

Adam Kokesh: Portrait of an Attention Whore

Attention Whore Kokesh

Attention Whore Kokesh

 

The former member of a USMC PSYOPS unit and self-aggrandizing blowhard Adam Kotexkesh has planned a little stroll for gun nuts on July Fourth.

On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free.

There’s a remote chance that there will be violence as there has been from government before, and I think it should be clear that if anyone involved in this event is approached respectfully by agents of the state, they will submit to arrest without resisting. We are truly saying in the SUBTLEST way possible that we would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.

Take if you will the case of Barrett Brown. Brown has been sitting in federal prison without a trial for almost a year at this point, for making threats on youtube against an FBI agent. Brown made these remarks while he was going through heroin withdrawal, but his incarceration happened without delay. Kokesh, however, has stated on the Alex Jones show (?!) that he considers this event to be an “armed revolt against the government.”

If Kokesh does not– at the very least– get a visit from some manner of law enforcement agency (and apparently, he lives right down the road from the headquarters of the FBI, so it’s not too far of a drive) he is every bit as much of a paid agent provocateur as Hal Turner was.

No, no– think about this. All of Kokesh’s stunts involve a large number of people getting arrested. Remember when he tried to sell lemonade on the national mall? The law he violated is in place to keep shitty multinational corporations like McDonalds from setting up a burger stand in the center of “America’s Lawn.” Those people he duped into standing up for libertarian capitalist exploitation of the commons? All arrested– except for him. Remember his “dance party” at the Jefferson Memorial? He got arrested as well as a bunch of other people for violating… a fire code.

This latest stunt is most likely the last, dying gasp of an agent provocateur who’s heard the buzz that his handlers are considering cutting his paycheck. Look, regardless if you are for or against open or concealed carry, the law is very clear: DC law explicitly forbids either within its boundaries, federal law explicitly forbids either on all of its property, Arlington National Cemetery forbids both (unless you’re part of an official funeral and it’s part of your full dress uniform, but we strongly doubt a gaggle of paultards in ratty t-shirts and shorts carrying a motley assortment of cobbled-together ARs and AKs are anybody’s uniform outside of whiny Halo fanboys whose mothers won’t bring them more chocolate milk, but we digress) and the border between DC and Virginia actually exists immediately where the asphalt ends and the bridge begins. Even if this cadre of hilariously inept goons manages to assemble outside of DC without any incident, all access to DC over that bridge during the fourth of July is controlled by checkpoints where all sorts of contraband are seized from tourists attempting to enter the District– and where, incidentally, I was detained and interrogated by National Parks police for a few minutes because I happened to have a sprig of mugwort tied around my backpack handle.

We’ve covered one of these stupid open carry rallies before. Kokesh’s plan makes that event seem level-headed and sanely managed, even though the elder event was organized by people who advocated throwing bricks through the office windows of their members of congress. Of course, those folks don’t really seem to like Kokesh’s plan. Oh, what the hell, they’re going BALLISTIC over it (OH GOD THAT WAS A HORRIBLE PUN)


“I recall Kokesh from his days with Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), an offshoot of John Kerry’s Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), his ceaseless promotion of Adam Kokesh, and most of all, the crazed stare of the truly mad. My guess is that if he’s pushing an armed march on D.C., it is because he’s hoping to immediately surrender as soon as he hits police lines (There is no way he’ll be carrying a gun himself), and is counting on one of the hotheads he brings with him will starting a shoot war with poorly-trained Metro police units and trigger-happy federal agents armed with automatic weapons.”

Look, I don’t think that Kokesh is part of some bizarre Hollywood-esque fantasy that’s part of a plan to slaughter profoundly stupid gun owners in public in front of families with small children– that’s paranoid jibber-jabber. It is, however, standard operating procedure for law enforcement to use informants and provocateurs to entrap other people without having to actually commit the crime of entrapment.

We’ve mocked the hyperbolic rhetoric of the gun-nut crowd to no end here, so don’t take this as some sort of massive political shift– we’re highlighting Kokesh because he’s been the beneficary of a wall of silence. Any time anyone on the left has attempted to complain about his revolting behavior, they’ve been shouted down or ignored. Remember when Kokesh was kicked out of the IVAW house? What about the numerous times he’s conducted fawning, softball interviews with Kevin Deanna– the white supremacist founder of Youth for Western Civilization? If there was any response, it usually consisted of “YUR JEST A ILLOOMINATY SOCK PUPPET” or other barely coherent invective.

Now he’s going to collect a group of easily impressionable, easily terrified gun owners and throw them in front of a sea of well trained, highly disciplined and heavily armed police. What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

CPAC: Conservative Pricks Assemble to Corrupt

 

The streets outside the Marriot Wardman Park hotel in Washington DC were alive on Friday, February 10th, 2011, as protestors affiliated with Occupy DC, the SEIU, the AFL-CIO and a host of allied organizations descended on the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, also known as CPAC. Participants traveled from as far away as Pittsburgh and New York City to demonstrate against money in politics, income inequality and a profusion of crimes and abuses perpetrated against the poor, working and middle classes.

CPAC does little to hide the fact that it is a product of and for the elite rich, with a full pass to the conferences costing 200 dollars, a one day pass at 75 dollars and media passes only awarded to a select few that have passed a rigorous background check that would make the FBI jealous. Due to this, we weren’t able to cover the most interesting of these conferences, the tantalizingly named “THE FAILURE OF MULTICULTURALISM” hosted by anti-immigrant fanatic Peter Brimelow and the hate group Youth for Western Civilization. Viking fetishist Kevin DeAnna and alcoholic nuisance Marcus Epstein were present, while Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and notable xenophobe John Derbyshire delivered speeches. Predictably, they chose to cower behind security checkpoints, bulletproof glass and hundreds of non-white police officers instead of daring to wade into the sea of untermenschen. Also present were Kevin Lamb from the white nationalist ProEnglish, Tim Dionisopoulos from Youth for Western Civilization, Jim Gilchrist from The Minuteklanmen and notorious snitch Brandon Darby.

Edwin Williams and Jim Gilchrist of the Minutemen

The specter of thousands of union steelworkers, maids and politically charged citizens exercising their fist amendment rights outside of a hotel was apparently enough to terrify attendees of CPAC, who hid behind phalanxes of riot police, barely venturing to the windows to snatch a peek at the lives they have been frittering away for the sake of greater profit. Referred to as the old stand-bys of “purveyors of chaos” and “union thugs” by histrionic fear-mongers in the right-wing echo-chamber, the demonstration on Friday was largely peaceful, despite vehement fulminations by apologists for the 1% to force all of these “welfare recipients” into “work camps and gas chambers.”

This has been the first major protest organized against CPAC in its nearly forty-year run.

Right Wing Terrorism on the Rise!!!

ARE THEY SERIOUS?????

Jared Lee Loughner shot and wounded United States Congsswoman Gabrielle Giffords and twelve others and killed Federal Judge John McCarthy Roll and six others outside a Safeway in Tucson early Saturday, January Eighth, 2011.

Giffords had beaten the teabagger candidate, Jesse Kelly, to win her third term as a representative. Gabrielle Giffords’ office was also vandalized in March, just after health care reform was approved. Why is this important? Last March, Mike Vanderboegh boasted about his call to throw bricks through the local offices of representatives who voted for Health Care Reform. This message struck such a chord that he was invited to speak at the Open Carry rally in April. He’s trying to backpedal now, making the patently ridiculous claim that his call to violence was actually an action against this type of violence, but he’s trying to shove toothpaste back into the tube.

Giffords was also the member of Congress who read the First Amendment during the reading of the Constitution this past Thursday. Fate is not without a sense of irony.

Victim 9 yr old Christina Taylor Greene

Judge Roll was the target of a barrage of death threats in 2009, after he had ruled that a group of illegal immigrants could proceed with a multi-million dollar civil rights lawsuit against a state rancher. Gabe Zimmerman, Giffords’ aide and a nine-year old child who had recently been elected president of her school’s student council were also amongst the dead.

Loughner’s Youtube rants are–at best– incoherent and rambling; they display some of the same rudderless and agitated rhetoric that typified early missives from Francis E. Dec, who was suffering from a degenerating form of paranoid schizophrenia. He also posted a similarly rambling screed online, which can be read here.

Loughner apparently retains enough of his mental capabilities to invoke his right against self-incrimination, so we must wait for word on his motivations before we discover if he is “just another kook” or a symptom of something deeper. It is, however, not too much of a stretch to observe the connection between Loughner’s acts and the pathology of violence than infects the right wing.

This is a fine place to reprint a common sentiment around the ‘net today: If all muslims are branded as terrorists due to the acts of a tiny minority, why is it when white conservatives repeatedly do it, it’s just the act of lone nuts?

Delusional Teabaggers to Attempt to Overthrow the Government…Yet Again

Timothy Davis (tldavis61@earthlink.net) 4033 Dogwood Ct. Loveland CO, 80538 US Tel. +001.9709629578


Meet Timothy L. Davis, a bottom-feeder fringe nutter in the world of teabaggers.

Yet another in a long line of fame-minded opportunists who are convinced that society is on the cusp of another southern secession, he fancies himself at the vanguard of a murky, ill-defined populist uprising.

Like other political opportunists who have come before him, he too has a poorly defined plan to overthrow the evil commie/nazi dictatorship– but his master plan to take over the world will succeed where one hundred percent of all previous attempts have crashed and burned!

You see, his master plan is–wait for it– to lay siege to federal offices!

He and his cohorts plan to stage a rally in DC on January 21st where they will announce their intention to besiege the offices of their representatives until “Obamacare is repealed, the federal reserve is audited and ended and our rights are recognized by every government agency.”

That probably sounded better than the original slogan of “We’re angry teabaggers who missed our chance at the limelight last year when people wanted to listen to our racist bullshit.” To be honest, the latter was a lot less nebulous than the one you decided on, man.

It’s quite clear Timothy is an amateur at this game. He plasters his name all over the whole operation, he links to the two teabagger sites he writes for (WashingtonRebel and Teaparty Editor), as well as his personal site, which he registered with his full name, address and telephone number. If you’re so worried about being crushed by the imaginary “iron fist of communism”, maybe you shouldn’t link your master plan to your real name and the site where you advertise the novels you wrote wherein you romanticize the defeated South.

The teabagger movement is not only dead in the water, it’s starting to smell.

Really, teabaggers, this the best you could come up with– a fantastically unpublished old-west writer who is desperately trying to convince the world that he’s not ripping off the hippie tactic of sit-ins (it’s not a sit-in! Hippies have sit-ins! It’s a SIEGE! MEN have SIEGES!) with the notion that this will be what gets health care reform wholly repealed? THIS is IT? To be honest, we wouldn’t have even noticed this if it wasn’t given a nod of endorsement by our other favorite would-be revolutionaries (and FBI honeypots), Restore The Constitution. When the militia psychos start talking about laying siege to federal buildings, a wildly entertaining spectacle is sure to follow.

Join the “Burn Confederate Flag Day” Movement at a 9/12 T-Bag Party!

Jesus General is one of our favorite bloggers! And he has a great idea to start fun filled opposition to the nasty t-baggers when they have their obnoxious 9/12 t-baggery event.

Burn The Confederate Flag Day

Burn the Confederate Flag Day is a protest against the right’s exploitation of racial prejudice for political gain. We urge you to burn the Confederate flag, a long-time symbol of racial hatred, on Sept 12, the date when the racially-divisive Tea Party holds its annual hate fest.

Ways to get involved:
Host a flag-burning party on Sept. 12.
Tell us where and when you’re holding it, and we’ll publish a list of events.
Send us photos of the event. We’ll post them here.
Upload a video of the event onto YouTube. We’ll embed it or link to it.
Let them know we’re watching. Dress up like a clown and take a partially burned flag to a local tea party event (Don’t burn a flag at the event unless local laws allow it.)
Spread the word via Facebook (here’s our Facebook group), Twitter, and other social media.
Submit your own ideas, below in the comments. We’ll use them to update this list.
Place a banner on your blog, website, or social media profile. Here are a couple of examples you can use:

We also suggest that people tear up the confederate flags if you cannot burn them.

Or step on, spit, throw paint on them or even write funny things on them with Sharpies! BE CREATIVE!!!

David Weigel’s Take on the “Gather Your Armies” Make Believe.


The right wing has been notorious at both Constitutional and historic revisionism as of late.
For instance, they believe as long as they throw everything they want under the sun as part of the Constitution, even when most of the time it isn’t and they don’t even know or understand what the Constitution says, they can bully the public into getting whatever they want.

This often has been more the brunt of comic relief and laughs, than to take it seriously

Also a point of comedy is their make believe fantasies about the “founding fathers”, who have been the victims of their dress up dramas and imaginary messianic caricatures of their tea bagging passion plays.

The latest joke has been a really funny video that has been flying around the internet for laughs.

At first many of us thought it was satire to take the piss out of the moronic tea bagger version of 1776, so imagine our surprise when the farce turned out to be an actual real video for a tea bagging Alabama congressional candidate Rick Barber.

David Weigel has done all of us the favor of setting the facts straight:

‘Gather your armies’
And here it is, the latest performance art TV ad from Alabama — although the previous stars of memorable ads here, Dale Peterson and Tim James, lost their primaries. Congressional candidate Rick Barber, a tea partyer who held the GOP’s preferred candidate Martha Roby below 50 percent in the first round of his primary, imagines a strategy meeting between himself, Sam Adams, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington.

s it worth digging into the substance here? Well, okay. First, the ad begins mid-conversation, with Barber saying, “And I would impeach him.” Tea parties aside, we haven’t seen many candidates openly mulling an impeachment of President Obama.

Second, I’m not sure Barber’s argument here makes sense. His pitch to the founders is a jeremiad against the IRS and “what they call a progressive income tax” (although what else you could call a tax on income that hits high-wage earners harder than low-wage earners is a mystery). He appeals to Washington as the owner of a distillery who “knows how tough it is to run a small business without a tyrannical government on your back.” But President Washington presided over, and approved, the first tax levied by the federal government — the 1791 whiskey tax. When the tax met resistance, he approved the assembling of militias to enforce the law and mobilization of agents to collect the revenue. So the Barber daydream of Washington angrily ordering a “gathering of armies” to oppose a tax is… well, entertaining, I guess.

A previous Barber video offered his straight-to-the-camera take on the “Islamic jihadists”


(LOL@stupid idiot racist Islamophobia, its so Dick Cheney!)

Phoenix Rose With Racist Biker Gangs and Assorted Fringe June 5th ; Dan Smeriglio’s New South West Friends


Ancient land … ancient tribes….ancient terrortories of rolling dusty hills …battles won…battles lost…who is allowed and who is not allowed to stay and go…our laws are full of those who decide…and very little voice for those with an even smaller voice…or maybe its not its not that small…cuz…Dapper Dan Smeriglio has been having a hard time since Billy Gheen’s “freak out”…

June 5 2010 Phoenix Rally Organizer Dan Smeriglio Attracts More Racist Fringe

An old proverb of the nineteen seventies was : “never look into a mirror while on acid, the mirror will show you things about yourself you don’t want to see.
Gheen looked into Smeriglio’s mirror mirror mirror on the wall and didn’t like who looked back…we got the images and there is a whole lot of ugly…


Phoenix AZ June 5, 2010-With numbers falling far short of the projected tens of thousands of attendees, the June 5 “Phoenix Rising” rally attracted nearly 700 supporters of SB1070, Arizona’s “Papers Please” law. Organizers attempted to distance themselves from the looming cloud of white supremacist and racist ties by forcing their speakers to toe the line of “this isn’t about race.” These attempts fell flat on their face with attendees, speakers and sponsors from the broader white supremacist community.

(1% biker wearing shirt bearing the slogan “It’s Not Illegal To Be White…Yet” which originated with the neo-nazi music distributor Tightrope/Panzerfaust.)

Sons Of Liberty Riders Claim Support For 1% Bike Gangs On their Website

Heat was certainly an aspect in severely denting the turnout, but the biggest factor were the reactions to organizer Daniel Smeriglio’s ties to white supremacists and the subsequent pullout of major sponsor Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC). Despite constant claims that their rally was not about racism or hatred, one one person had a tattoo featuring a shamrock inside a Celtic Cross—a symbol for the racist prison gang Aryan Brotherhood.

Guy with Yellow Cap Sports Aryan Brotherhood Tattoo on Elbow

One of the bikers present and attending under the auspices of the “Sons of Liberty Riders” wore a t-shirt featuring the logo of the 1% outlaw biker gang White Boy Society; White Boy Society is tied to both the violent racist skinhead gang Vinlanders Social Club and the National Socialist Movement.

White Boy Society

Acting as an official sponsor and operating a booth promoting the “American Border Patrol” was Council of Conservative Citizens and American Renaissance associate Glenn Spencer; Spencer is best known for promoting the ridiculous conspiracy theory that Mexicans are crossing the border in an attempt to re-conquer the American Southwest.

Another Crazy Misspelled Right Wing Sign

Five people were taken away by paramedics because of the heat, and organizers exacerbated the situation by not providing free water, instead charging one dollar for a small bottle.
Those that did not succumb to the heat heard speakers from equally suspect organizations like Barbara Coe from California Citizens for Immigration Reform, Rosemary Jenks from NumbersUSA .

Check Out Imagine2050 for Smack Down Coverage!!

An animated, raving speech and an appearance from Kevin DeAnna, a pro-European right wing activist from the Leadership Institute and is also the leader and founder of the pro-white/anti-multicultural college organization Youth for Western Civilization (it appears he wrote a report back of the rally on the white “racialist” site VDare.com).
