Yes, not peace, not love, “no USA at all.”
That’s the aim. When they chant “no fascist USA,” they don’t mean eliminate the fascists. They mean all of you ARE the fascists because you are not as left as them.
They successfully shut down two rallies, one in San Francisco created by a transgender woman, the other in Berkeley by a Japanese-American man. Both rejected any extremism and any Nazism. Yet they were still forced to shut down and the one in Berkeley had stragglers and random people Antifa thought were Nazis attacked.
The two mayors of the respective cities came out against the peaceful rallies.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee declared victory over a group he branded as inviting hate.
Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin had urged counter-protesters to stay away.
The organizer of Sunday’s right-wing event was Amber Cummings, a transgender woman and Trump supporter who has repeatedly denounced racism. Cummings said that demonization by mayors in both cities and left-wing extremists made it impossible for people with other views to speak out.
Cummings has said on social media and in media interviews that Marxism is the real evil and that members of the anti-fascist movement are terrorists.
“I’m not safe to walk down the road with an American flag in this country,” she told reporters last week.
Saturday’s event was organized by a group known as Patriot Prayer. Its leader, Gibson, also repeatedly has disavowed racism.
FOX61 reported that the group told its members: “No extremists will be allowed in. No Nazis, Communist, KKK, Antifa, white supremacist, I.E., or white nationalists. This is an opportunity for moderate Americans to come in with opposing views. We will not allow the extremists to tear apart this country.”
If you do not see the slippery slope, you’re not looking closely enough…
