Trump Threatens Violence Against Anti-Fascist Protesters | Democracy Now! – During the same interview, President Trump issued a warning to the anti-fascist movement, known as antifa. Trump said, “These people, like the Antifa — they better hope that the opposition to Antifa decides not to mobilize… Because if you look, the other side, it’s the military. It’s the police. It’s a lot of very strong, a lot of very tough people. Tougher than them. And smarter than them… Potentially much more violent. And Antifa’s going to be in big trouble.”

Katie Burkholder // “Crying Nazi” Promotes Alt-Right Video Game that Portrays Homophobic Mass Shooting – Cantwell, host of the podcast Radical Agenda, became virally known as the “Crying Nazi” when he posted a video last year sobbing for fear of being arrested after the Charlottesville rally. He recently promoted the video game, which is a sequel to the 2017 antisemitic game “Angry Goy.”

In the first installment of the game, players could shove Jewish people into ovens. In the sequel, there are several levels where players can target different minorities, including shooting LGBTQ people dead in a setting similar to Orlando’s Pulse nightclub, a gay bar where 49 people were shot dead in 2016.

[Répression du mouvement antifasciste]

Pour information nous sommes toujours sans nouvelles de nos 6 camarades qui se sont fait casser leurs portes par des policiers cagoulés hier matin à 6h et emmener en garde à vue.
Une opération de police simultanée sur plusieurs départements avec bélier, armes automatiques pour des motifs minables : dégradation, outrage et “association de malfaiteurs”.
Des sacs entiers de matériel ont été emmenés.
Nos avocats nous confient être abasourdies devant l’absence totale de preuves qu’un quelconque délit ait été fait par nos camarades.
L’acharnement politique et policier se poursuit sur notre organisation à l’image de tout ceux et celles qui se mettent en travers de l’extrême-droite et qui manifestent leur solidarité avec les exilé-e-s.

Caroline Sinders, Freddy Martinez and Chris Schiano // Arrested D.C. Nazi Marched in Charlottesville, Befriended Pittsburgh Shooter – UNICORN RIOT – Jeffrey Clark Jr., who lives in DC’s Bloomingdale neighborhood, was arrested Nov. 9, court filings show, after two family members alerted police to his increasingly agitated outbursts, which reportedly included saying that the 11 victims of the Pittsburgh shooting “deserved it”. Clark recently threatened to kill members of the Jewish community in the wake of the Squirrel Hill attacks, where a shooter open fired in a synagogue and killed 11 people.

Robert Bowers, the accused Pittsburgh shooter, has been celebrated by far-right groups including the “National Socialist Legion“, a Neo-Nazi group with ties to Vanguard America. Federal agents claim to possess photographs of Clark with a Vanguard America flag.

Shortly before the outbursts leading to his arrest, Clark’s brother, Edward Clark, committed suicide. According to the federal affidavit, Edward killed himself upon learning that Gab was cooperating with the police upon Bowers’ arrest.

Matt Volz and MICHAEL KUNZELMAN // Judge: 1st Amendment Doesn’t Shield Neo-Nazi Publisher From Lawsuit – Talking Points Memo – Attorney Marc Randazza said he believes U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen made a legally flawed decision Wednesday in ruling the First Amendment does not shield Daily Stormer publisher Andrew Anglin from being sued for his followers’ anti-Semitic harassment of a Jewish woman and her family in Montana.

Randazza said he can “see the allure of not wanting to rule in favor of the Nazi,” but expressed concern that the decision could be used to curtail free speech in many other forums.

“The rule needs to be the same no matter what your view is,” he said.
