Richard Spencer being attacked and dragged out of the park by military cops.
The live thread is still going and will keep going. You’re gonna wanna keep checking that, because Trump is talking about this and a car just crashed into a crowd – all sorts of things still happening.
I just want to make a separate, clean and simple post here to let people know just exactly how this all went down on this day.
Bullet point style.
Please note that I was not there, so what I am giving you here is not a definitive report, but simply put together from livestreams as well as ongoing chat reports from people who were/are there.
- After a challenge by the ACLU, a federal judge ruled that to take our permit for Lee Park was a civil rights violation. Our permit was restored.
- Everything was set up in Lee Park, we started arriving, there were around 4-5,000 people gathered according to media reports.
- The event was scheduled to begin at noon.
- All of the sudden, around 11:30, the cops began attacking the crowd and shooting tear gas. It’s not clear whether these were local, state or federal police.
- They began bullhorning that it was an illegal assembly. People were forced out of the park.
- Those who tried to stay in the park were attacked by the cops.
- There were very few antifa, but the cops herded people in their direction, so people could be attacked and pepper-sprayed. Everyone got pepper-sprayed.
- Antifa were getting their asses kicked.
- People attempted to reorganize in various locations.
- Every location where people attempted to reorganize was visited by cops threatening people will arrest.
- People kept getting split up by the cops, and so were attacked.
- Then someone crashed a car.
This was an insane mess.
I have never seen anything like this, I don’t think it’s ever happened in American history.
The point at which the cops began tear-gassing and attacking the demonstration
The cops just openly attacking people for no reason when they had a right to assemble is just bizarre. This had to have been ordered by the Mayor, or by the governor, or by some federal authorities. We will find out.
The ACLU is going to sue over this for sue, help the organizers file a suit as well, I think anyone injured will also be able to sue the city and the cops, we might be able to sue officers as individuals.
So That’s That
This is where we are at.
Our ideas are so powerful, that the cops have to break the law and use violence against us to shut us down.
This shows just what an unbelievable threat we are to the system. It proves it. No one else is having their rallies shut down. This is something different than has ever happened in modern history, the cops attacking a rally like this.
If the rally had gone through as planned, that would have been a massive victory. But this. This is a bigger victory than we ever could have hoped for.
The whole world just witnessed the cops attacking a peaceful demonstration in order to silence our ideas.
We have now solidified ourselves as the resistance to the system.
No successful rally could have been worth the message that this sends.
This is a victory of victories.
And this war has only just begun.
Everyone who is in Charlottesville, enjoy your evening meetups. Celebrate.
The Alt-Right has risen.
There is no going back from this.
This was our Beer Hall Putsch.
This was the beginning of our revolution.
