The rally in Charlottesville: The ‘coup’ against the Alt-Right and Trump…

It pains me a great deal having to write this article but it is my duty as a responsible citizen to do so, so bear with me. Things are not going well with the Trump Administration. The policies put in place by President Trump are importantly different from those advertised by Candidate Trump and it doesn’t bode well for the future. What we saw in Charlottesville a few weeks ago when the supposed ‘white supremacist’ rally, called Unite The Right, happened was a real circus, a theater of smoke and mirrors to deceive the many. The media lied about it in a way for me that was unprecedented. I knew the media was lying but they surpassed anything I was expecting. Even Fox News, a supposedly right-wing network, lied up to their cheeks. The female host who was describing the events going on live was absolutely horrible, calling rallygoers racists and nazis. She was so completely over the top, unprofessional and dishonest that you were wondering if she was not making a pitch to be hired by some other network. I had to check the station identification logo to be sure.

To set the record straight, here is what happened at Charlottesville, from the facts and witnesses accounts that I could gather. Right-wingers of a variety of school of thought and political philosophy gathered in that town to protest the removal of Confederate monuments, the statue of Robert E. Lee among many. It was also an occasion to meet other right-wingers, to network and create bonds. A lawfull permit was given to the organizers and the police was informed of every detail. Everything was looking good. Rallygoers start to assemble in the morning and the atmosphere was peaceful. The police was monitoring and securing the event. Then the antifa showed up and increased their numbers rapidly. Some of them were armed with clubs and other weapons. Then for some reasons not explained the rally was declared unlawful, the State of Emergency was declared and things deteriorated rapidly. The police, at the request of local authorities clearly not in sync with the ideas and values of rallygoers, pushed Unite the Right participants toward the antifa thugs making them easy targets for injuries of all sorts. What is important to precise here, again according to people who were there such as Richard Spencer and others, is that the perimeter had been set in a way that made rallygoers trapped and had nowhere to go to escape the antifa. So violence broke out between the two groups. That’s a chance that right-wingers brought shields to defend themselves. Then, there was also the incident with the car but we don’t even know if it was intentional. We don’t know the circumstances.

The media portrayed the whole event as a nazi and KKK event while it was nothing of the sort. There might have been a few people with nazi flags but that doesn’t make all rallygoers nazis. Effectively, if your neighbour puts a Bolivian flag on his balcony that doesn’t make the whole neighbourhood Bolivian. You also have to remind yourself that sometimes people in the New Right or the Alt-Right for exemple use nazi paraphernelia as a means of provocation, not because they are real nazis. I agree with Richard Spencer when he says that the Charlottesville rally was a total set up. Everything was ready, the police, local authorities, the media, to be able to present the event as a nazi rally.

But then who was the target of such an extensive operation? Obviously the Alt-Right movement first, which is gaining momentum and in strength rapidly. I think that those who planned this ‘coup’ against the movement wanted to be able to tie in the stain of nazism to the Alt-Right to be able, in turn, to get to President Trump. You see, the media and the Left have been trying unsuccessfully for months to portray Trump as somebody who ‘collude with Russia’. They have been repeating this story over and over again but it doesn’t stick. It is obvious that they have decided to change tactics: If the Russia label doesn’t work maybe the nazi label will. That’s what it was all about. Members of the Alt-Right movement, largely represented at this rally in Charlottesville, were instrumental in providing support to Candidate Trump to assure his victory on November 8. They made the difference, so to speak. So they were targeted to be smeared as nazis in Charlottesville, by the Left and other nefarious forces, to be able to smear Trump himself in a second step as a nazi and discredit him.

Then you have Trump’s response to the events. To be perfectly honest, I am not sure that Trump gets it the way he should. Or maybe he gets it but his entourage don’t let him think besides what Washington expects. In the very dangerous world in which we live, the puck is going very fast. So, in order to survive and win, you have to think fast and act fast. In the aftermath of the rally in Charlottesville, Trump provided a response that was rubber-stamped by the swamp, so to speak. He talked about ‘bigotry, hatred, racism, etc. Then, a few days later, going off script, he provided a much better response when he denounced ‘violence on both sides’. But again that’s not what happened.

It is obvious that Charlottesville was a set up, a very clever, meticulous, articulate information warfare and propaganda operation designed to break Trump’s Presidency. All the signs are there showing that a soft ‘coup’ is under way to overthrow the President and marginalize his supporters. Within the Administration, those who support his agenda and policies are being pushed aside, fired or dismissed. The ousting of Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka are sending the signal that the Trump Presidency will not be about what Candidate Trump made campaign on. Also, those who support or used to support President Trump are being kicked out of social media, they see their videos on Youtube being demonetized, censored, they see their access cut from payments services, etc, in other terms they are being targeted for their political ideas. In that regard, everybody can notice that there seems to be more censorship going on since Trump took office than there was during Obama’s Presidency. Obama transfered the control of the internet to ICANN, the organism that delivers names and numbers for websites. Technically, while that is still a matter of interpretation by legal experts and lawyers, that transfert took off the protection offered by the First Amendment on speech, since now it is no longer the government that is in control of the internet but a non-profit organization.

President Trump could have easily denounced that transfer and proposed to cancel it, bringing it back under the government’s control. Why hasn’t he done that? President Trump said a few times that he would defend ‘religious liberty’. Well…there’s just one problem. Religious liberty and freedom of speech are not compatible. If you look at history, you will notice that very often religions were imposed on populations by force, sometimes by the sword. So religions spread throughout the world thanks to their ability to suppress the freedom of speech of those they wanted to convert. As far as I know, all religions of any importance did it. And today, we have to face the problem of Muslims trying to impose shariah law on non-Muslims. To let the Muslims deliver their propaganda in order for them to impose shariah on us is not ‘liberty’. It is folly and submission. When President Trump made his trip to Saudi Arabia to meet with the leaders of the Muslim and Arab nations, he was received and treated as a king. Personally, I am not sure I like it. Islam is a supremacist religion that tolerates nothing and no one outside its realm. When Muslims don’t like somebody, usually, that’s a good sign, a sign that that person is not submitting to shariah and is actually defending our values and freedoms. In that regard, you could say that Muslims are divided on Trump. Some of them like him, others don’t. Recently, Muslim activitst Linda Sarsour proposed the idea that resisting Trump was a form of jihad. Was the whole circus of Charlottesville part of that jihad?

I would like to finish with this broader question: How far are we willing to go in the West to accommodate the Muslim world before getting destroyed? I suggest that you listen to these two witnesses accounts, those of Richard Spencer and James Allsup.

Republicans strengthen right-wing Jihad against the poor, leftists, liberals and anyone who don’t think like them

Well, well, well… Look at what we got here… These days, in Wisconsin, there is literally a vendetta against unions to finish off any capacity from the poorest segment of the population of our so-called « democratic » countries to organize and defend themselves against the sharks and wolves of the ultra-rich. Many Republicans perceive unions as being « socialist ». Really? But… haven’t they read the Gospel, where Jesus is presented as somebody who shares with, gives and help his brothers? How this sacred Jihad against unions is in any way compatible with the most basic principles of social-democracy, liberalism, which is based on the Gospel? It is not. And you know why? Because it is just another deception, a mascarade to hide the pro-fascist agenda of the Republican Party. Republicans want to destroy the middle class and with it, social-democracy itself. That‘s what they are trying to do.

You want another example? Take this story about Ron Schiller, Foundation President at the National Public Radio network. It appears that he has been set up by a right-wing activist, James O’Keefe, a specialist of these matters apparently who, among other targets, helped to destroy the credibility of ACORN. O’Keefe sent two of his accomplices, Shaughn Adeleye and Simon Templar (we can bet that is not his real name either…) to pose as members of a phony Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Muslim Education Action Center. During this highly edited interview, we can hear and see Schiller, among other things, making negative comments on the Tea Party and the Republican Party. O’Keefe then posted the hidden-camera video on Youtube, which led to a media scandal and the firing of chief executive Vivian Schiller, no relation with the other. Evidently, taken out of context, the different comments Schiller made sound rather unacceptable for an executive. But O’Keefe hasn’t provided us yet with the unedited version of the interview, which I guess would be revealing. But I think we can assume that we will never have the chance to see the integral of the recording…

NPR is getting accustomed to conservative harassment. In the 1990s and in 2005, similar attempts were made on them. These recent attacks are part of a global strategy from the Republicans to cut off on « federal spending », which is only a pretext to cease all kinds of social measures and programs that help the poor and the middle class in the U.S. Last month, a bill was passed in the House of Representatives that would end funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which supports NPR. Frankly, this O’Keefe is a manipulator and a right-wing biggot. I provide you here with an article and the videos that O’Keefe made available on Youtube on this story. In the first one, you will be able to judge for yourself how edited it is and how it cannot have any credibility whatsoever for that reason. Not knowing the general context in which these comments were made, one cannot induce an interpretation like O’Keefe does. But it doesn’t matter for the Republican Party. They are after the poor and the middle class and they are ready to crush everyone on their path.

Le Figaro souffrirait-il d’islamo-gauchisme?

Voici le discours de Sarkozy à la nation  du 27 février 2011. Il y parle notamment de la politique étrangère de la France et du remaniement ministériel qu’il a effectué dernièrement. Le journal Le Figaro a été assez « généreux » pour nous offrir sur YouTube des « extraits » de ce discours, que voici. C’est drôle mais…tous les passages où l’on entend le Président de la République faire des références à la défense de la patrie contre certains risques extérieurs, à l’importance d’encourager des leaders dans le monde arabe qui ne sont pas des islamistes, à l’importance des protéger les valeurs occidentales de populations migrantes désespérées, bref toutes les références visant à mettre en valeur la protection de l’Europe des divagations islamiques et identitaires des populations du Maghreb et du moyen-Orient en général, ont été laissées de côté par Le Figaro. Non mais vraiment, pour qui vous prenez-vous? De quel droit pouvez-vous censurer le discours du Président Sarkozy? Les Français ont le droit d’entendre et de voir l’intégral du discours, pour ceux qui n’ont pas eu la chance de l’écouter en direct à la télé, et de juger par eux-mêmes des propos tenus. Le choix « éditorial » que vous faites des extraits pue l’islamo-gauchisme invétéré. Si vous êtes favorable à l’Islam au niveau idéologique, dîtes-le donc simplement mais ne venez pas essayer de jouer dans la tête des gens. On a en rien à foutre de votre lâcheté, de votre trahison. Vous n’avez pas la colonne vertébrale de défendre la France et l’Europe, tant pis pour vous.
