protests

Police arrested at least one person at a free speech rally organized to oppose political correctness at Evergreen College in Olympia, Washington. Clashes marked the gathering, as black-clad counter-protesters arrived with silly string and pepper spray.

Riot police flanked protesters from both sides of the political spectrum gathered at The Evergreen State College, as the liberal arts institution was otherwise closed and all campus activities were suspended Thursday.

On one side, the “Patriot Prayer” conservative group gathered to protest the college’s “Day of Absence,” a long-time annual event that came with a twist this year. Instead of a voluntary boycott by a particular minority – such as women or immigrants – this time students demanded a day without white people be enforced. In May, protests erupted after a white professor at the college refused to participate. Dozens of students later demanded the professor’s resignation after he wrote an email about the incident, which they deemed to be racist.

The Patriot Prayer group is calling for the college’s funding to be cut since they say it has been taken over by political correctness and hatred.

“You cannot ask students and professors to leave campus because of the color of their skin,” the group’s Facebook page said.

On the other side, counter-protesters often referred to as anti-fascists, were dressed all in black, with black masks and black hats.

The Puget Sound Anarchists’ website called for people to come protest the Patriot Prayer rally, saying the group “works closely with explicit fascists, and white supremacists.”

Both groups were met by around 65 Washington State troopers armed with rifles and dressed in riot gear, according to the Olympian.

At one point, the counter-protesters began spraying the free speech protesters with silly string.

Joey Gibson, the leader of the Patriot Prayer group, was seen being escorted away from the event after he claimed he approached the counter-protesters and tried to shake hands with them. Gibson said he was called a “racist” and a “fascist” and someone dressed in black hit him in the face with a can and pepper-sprayed him.

“Not one person shook my hand, not one. I just wanted to have a conversation,” Gibson said. “They act like they’re against hate, there’s no way. If they’re against hate then they would have taken my hand and shaken it like a man. That’s all I’m asking for.”

Upon leaving the protest, Gibson also allegedly had his tires slashed, along with several other protesters.

Washington State Patrol confirmed that a 25-year-old man was arrested for disorderly conduct during the event. No other arrests were made.

No other details were provided about the individual who was arrested, however, one user posted an image on Twitter, showing two men fighting on the ground, along with a caption that said, “Patriot Prayer supporter wrestles man with a knife at Evergreen State College. They handed him over to state troopers.”

Other users also confirmed that someone at the event had a knife and was tackled.

At the end of the day, the protesters left without any major incidents or injuries reported. As one Twitter user said, “This is an actual conversation happening between 2 sides that hasn’t gotten ugly.”

    “works closely with explicit fascists, and white supremacists.”

    Note to the leftist idiots: Nazi stands for the Nazionale Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter Partei – the National SOCIALIST German Workers Party. ARE YOU LEFTIST **THAT**FRICKING ******* STUPID**** THAT YOU DON’T KNOW THIS?????

    Was it just a name, as some say? Then why did the Nazi’s introduce the “Reichsarbeitsdienst” – the National Labour Svc that had public work systems; why the “Kraft durch Freude,” where the STATE even took care of the leisure time of workers?

    Here are some of the planks of the Nazis, adopted in Munich on February 24, 1920:
    “We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living… We demand profit sharing in big business… the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our system of public education. . . We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents. . . . The government must undertake the improvement of public health… permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of The Common Good Before the Individual Good”
    No the Nazis did not advocate public ownership of production, only that the govt oversee and run the economy, as they knew that legal ownership wasn’t what counted, but rather CONTROL. So, private citizens could hold title – as long as the state had the unqualified right to use their property. I.e., de facto socialism, the STATE still controls. Or, as Carl Limbacher wrote in NewsMax, Dec. 5, 2005, “Benito Mussolini’s Fascist economic policy, which he called the “mixed economy,” tried to combine Marxism with capitalism. What resulted was a dictatorship which allowed limited economic freedom to those favored industries willing to operate under government patronage.” The observant among you will note well the phrase “operate under government patronage.” In fact, private industry was a hostage of the Nazis. They did not hesitate to confiscate Junker’s aircraft business, or threaten the others with creating a government-run business to compete with it. BASF was so created. Hitler also did not hesitate to threaten the lives and families of any industrialist who did not cooperate. Speer allegedly did so when he ran the German economy. Why leftists think ANY private citizen would be able to thwart somebody who literally controlled the power of life and death over them is beyond me. Wages of Destruction by Adam Tooze is one book exploring this.

    The only seeming difference between Hitler’s Nazism and today’s National Socialists is that Aryan racial purity. Or is it? Truth is, the self-proclaimed “elite” are now the uber menschen, and we hoi polloi in flyover country are the new Poles, Jews, bibleforschers (in English, we would call them “Bible bangers) -10% of the Dachau concentration camp was made up of Christian clergy, as one example), etc. And of course, relative to racial purity as http://www.blackgeocide.com notes, over 15.5 million black babies have been aborted since 1973 – 1,876 babies every single day, while in 2010, the most recent year available, 138,539 black babies were aborted – nearly one baby in three was murdered in the womb in 2010, per http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jan/21/j-kenneth-blackwell-black-abortions-a-crisis-in-am/ Sadly, leftist blacks are voting for their own liquidation.

    Also revealing is the new “Juden” attitude of the left in their frantic hatred of all things Christian. In Hitler’s Germany, Bibelforschers (Bible students) were forced to wear purple triangles in concentration camps, and 10% of Dachau was comprised of Christian clergy, per one of the pastors who was there, Christian Reger (see his eponymous book, Dachau), and of course die Weiße Rose Gesellschaft (White Rose Society), a non-violent group actively campaigning against Hitler, or dedicated Christians Dietrich Bonhoeffer, von Stauffenberg, and his group that conducted the famed assassination against Hitler in 1944, and were all executed by Hitler. With this in mind, now go google (don’t worry – this wasn’t in the lamestream media such stories as pro-life protestors Mike Fuoss and James Pouillon by one Harlan Drake in 2009, or Sarah Palin’s church being burned down while people were in it, Hak-Shing William Tan, who had to be removed as an official litigant in the California same sex marriage case due to concerns for the lives of his family and himself (remember: hate crimes are only for the politically correct – others need not apply). The list could go on for pages, but I will stop at the five murdered at a Youth for Christ and New Life Church in 2009, the Paducah high school murders, or even the Columbine high school murders, where Christians were specifically targeted. The truth is that if the left cannot co-opt Christianity, it will return to its Robespierrian roots that we have seen again and again in the USSR, Red China, Nazi Germany, North Korea and elsewhere. And why? Very simple: the left maintains man is perfectible; in contrast, Christianity says man is not. The left believes your rights are granted by man. Christianity says they are irrevocably give to man by God. Solzhenitsyn summarized this by stating communism was a “Christian heresy.” And socialism is just the ugly relative of communism. Or as Lenin simply said, “The goal of socialism is communism.”

    And while Trump and Reagan are called “fascist” by the factually ignorant left, Bruce Thornton writes of everyone’s favourite leftist, the late Fidel Castro that “…it was Castro and his regime who had more in common with fascism. The state’s control and plundering of the economy, the repression of human rights, the secret police, and the cult of personality surrounding the messianic leader are classic fascism.” Likewise, apologist for Castro’s brutality always ring use the same argument for Hitler: “he made the trains run on time” (remind anyone of Woody Allen’s idiotic auote – see http://articles.latimes.com/2010/may/23/nation/la-na-ticket-20100523) – about giving Obama total power, so he could then really get something done: “It would be good… if [President Obama] could be dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly.”) Meanwhile, a Inga Andrews who lived in Dusseldorf, Nazi Germany (and later came to the US… legally) went on record that it is the leftist protesters themselves who most remind her of the Nazis, stating after the Trump inauguration: “What is going on in this country is giving me chills. Trump is not like Hitler. Just because a leader wants order doesn’t mean they’re like a dictator. What reminds me more of Hitler than anything else isn’t Trump, it’s the destruction of freedom of speech on the college campuses — the agendas fueled by the professors. That’s how Hitler started, he pulled in the youth to miseducate them, to brainwash them, it’s happening today.” The truth of the matter is that the left wants to state to control everything… which comports perfectly with thoughts of Mussolini, the originator of fascism, who stated “All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.” Similarly, Hitler’s Nazis thought that that individual should be always and everywhere be subsumed under a group (usually military in nature). The collectivist nature of both communism and fascism (derived from fasces, or a group of sticks bundled together for strength) is clearly at odds with today’s “right wingers” who strongly support individual autonomy.

    Then why did Hitler invade Russia? is the standard, leftist reply. Truth is, Stalin’s Soviet Union was a de facto ally of Nazi Germany by virtue of the August 1939 signing of the Ribbentrop/Molotov non-aggression pact. Yes, some of this was indeed expediency and a ploy to buy time, but in fact, Stalin’s Union of Soviet Socialist Republics supplied Germany with key resources that helped the Luftwaffe bomb a solitary Britain during the Blitz of 1940-1941, and the communists in France, England etc suddenly became in agreement with Nazism.

    But the truth is, the National Socialist war with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was an internecine one – exactly the same at the Shi’ite/Sunni wars. We all know that these “family” wars are some of the most bitter. Another example is Hitler’s Operation Hummingbird, where Ernest Rohm and his SA cohorts where murdered. And why did the Soviets start a brief war with Mao’s China on the Ussuri River in 1969, with the dispute not resolved until the Soviet Union ended in 1991? Why did Brezhnev reportedly ask Nixon that, if he nuked Mao, would the US respond? Why did Red China might Ho Chi Minh’s Socialist Republic of Vietnam in early 1979? What about the full scale invasion of Kampuchea (Cambodia) against the Khmer Rouge, which started Dec. 1978? The usual answer to this is “historic animosities.” But wasn’t the whole Communist “schtict” that their philosophy trumped all that Old World stuff, and there was now a “new man?” And why was Trotsky murdered by his fellow leftists? Why was Lavrentiy Beria, head of the NKVD (precursor to the KGB) suddently found persona non grata, taken out, had a rag stuffed in his mouth so he couldn’t whine, and shot dead? Why did Stalin purge his fellow communist generals in the 1930s? Why did Castro have his popular General Arnaldo Ochoa taken out and shot? Should I go on? And interestingly, Roland Freisler, one of Hitler’s lead judges, and who managed the trial of those who tried to assassinate the Fuhrer, was heavily involved in communism after being taken prisoner in WWI, and was even used as a commissar in the prison camp.
    Roland Freisler, chosen by Hitler as the lead judge to condemn those who conspired to assassinate him in 1944, was a prisoner at the end of WWI, learned to speak Russian, and developed an interest in Marxism after the Russian Revolution had commenced. The Bolsheviks who took over Freisler’s prisoner of war camp made use of him as a ‘Commissar’ (as he was described by them in his repatriated prisoner of war paperwork in 1918, though this could have just described him being an administrator in the prison camps). It is possible that after the Russian prisoner of war camps were emptying in 1918, with their internees being repatriated to Germany after the Armistice between Russia and the Central Powers had been signed, Freisler for a brief period became attached in some way to the Red Guards, though this not certain.

    Truth is, there is no final basis for ethics in materialistic socialism or communism (Dostoyevski wrote, “If there is no God… everything is permissible” – and yes, he DID, in fact write that; rather it is, as philosopher Schaeffer wrote, in their materialistic world it is necessarily the case that “whatever is, is right.). Truth is, to the fascist/communist/socialist left, no one is ever pure enough, and left to their own devices, communism will end with the very last two communists having one murder the other one. Unfortunately, then, that last communist won’t be a communist, as there won’t be another person to live off of.

    Worse, all these campus young socialists today, who only have utilitarian value, will end up no better than Ernst Rohm and his SA after the Night of the Long Knives. No, they won’t be murdered – rather, they will just collectively end up with $1.3 trillion in debt, and have no future, no career, no money, no home, no marriage, no children – the Fabian socialist version of the Rohm putsch. Marching for faux global warming? The architects of this scam make no bones about reducing living standards, and in some cases – such as former Obama advisor John Holdren (who is a former global cooler in the 1970s) – actually call for deindustrialization and things like actually razing dams. The victims of all this new poverty, of course, will be these very same campus radicals who will realize, too late, that they are in the same long line of Ernst Rohm, Leon Trotsky, Lavrentiy Beria, Gen. Arnaldo Ochoa in Cuba, and worse (don’t know who they are, young leftist? You had better look them up, as you, dear leftist, are slated for the same fate, if “only” economically. Perhaps of of the most revealing comments betraying this real attitude of young leftists being cannon fodder is Che Guevara’s comment about the peasants in one South American country he was active, where he state “I know the campesinos (peasants) support us now; however, when we come to power, they, too, will have to be liquidated.” The “useful idiots” attitude toward humanity has always been extant with the left – given that man has no inherent value – going back to its founding, where Jacques Mallet du Pan (1749—10 May 1800), wrote about the first leftist reign of terror, in his 1793 essay that ”…the Revolution always eats its own children” (“A l’exemple de Saturne, la révolution dévore ses enfants”). To the left, it truly is, as Russian philosopher Nicolai Berdyaev once noted, “If God doesn’t exist, then man does not exist either.” Here, he meant the “mannishness,” of man, where the mass of people are now nothing more than future Solyent Green.
    The National Socialist philosophy is right out of the Obama/Pelosi playbook., and you can read more about the socialism of the Nazis with any Google search, though http://encyclopedia.laborlawtalk.com/Nazi#Key_elements_of_the_Nazi_ideology exposes a lot about the National Socialist Program which was big on Euthanasia, Eugenics and Social Darwinism , which are big hits with libs today, too.

      The biggest problem with these ignorant college radicals is their complete ignorance of history. They can’t even use accurate terminology to call out their political enemies.
      They refer to the Patriot Prayer group as “fascists”, though it is they who have more in common with fascists. And they have the audacity to call them racists by claiming that they associated with “white supremacists” after they demanded a day without white people? The hypocrisy is mind numbing.
      Little do they know that they are expendable, and will be discarded by those they support as soon as their usefulness wears off. They are working towards their own demise.
      It’s hard to believe that people who are college educated could be so incredibly ignorant. But it is quite the stretch to say that they are educated. Indoctrinated is a more accurate description. And brainwashed too.
      It’s scary to think that this is the future generation that will run our country. Although, if they get their way, there won’t be a country left to run. These reprobates are trying really hard to destroy our country and undermine our values and principles. It’s a joke that they claim to be fighting for anything good, especially when the only thing they are doing is assaulting people and committing violent acts against anyone they disagree with. They have zero tolerance for freedom of speech,freedom of religion, freedom of expression, or any other freedoms that don’t fit their agenda.
      Hopefully there are enough people with common sense to keep these reprobates from holding any positions of power or authority. And hopefully enough of them are re-educated so they won’t live the rest of their lives believing the garbage they have been fed in these indoctrination mills. I say this because we need a majority of the people to fight against this kind of trash. So the more people who can be turned towards our side, the better.
      Do they even realize that their views make absolutely no sense? What they are saying is not even logical. They frequently contradict themselves by saying one thing and then saying something else that is completely opposite. They are fighting for people’s rights by violating people’s rights. What’s wrong with these people?
      They have been brainwashed so badly that they are only capable of violence and destruction. They cannot reasonably communicate with anyone who is opposed to their agenda because they don’t even know what they are for or against. All they know is that they need to assault people who are from the opposite side. They are only able to stop or impede their political enemies. They have no plan of their own to push forward with.

      • It is highly doubtful that they are any more ignorant of history that anyone else who has graduated with honors from Telescreen U.

        • SP_88

          How could that be? The telly has filled their brains with tons of information about history and other stuff. Although it’s more like how a diaper is filled with shit than a proper education based on honest facts and events. 🙂
          Seriously though, it’s better to not know anything than to spend years being indoctrinated with lies and propaganda.
          And once these people are done with school, the mainstream media takes over to provide their daily dose of lies and manufactured bullshit.

          • g.johnon

            stay away from cnn and msnbc and television is just a bunch of choices that you are free to make or not and information that you are free to believe or disbelieve.
            we really need to stop pointing the finger at everything that moves and start shouldering the blame for the fact that the world has gone to shit while we, basically, sat on our asses and watched.

          • The best thing to do is to develop a master BS filter that can prevent you from believing things that are clearly false before you make any mistakes based on the incorrect information. Those who have dragged us into interminable wars throughout the world don’t want us to think about their lies. It would be bad for their Carlyle Group dividend checks.

    These leftists are nothing more than National SOCIALIST (Nazi) brownshirts.

    And yes, they are too utterly STUPID to know that Nazi stands for National Socialist, and adopted EXPLICITLY socialist planks at their very first convention, Feb. 24, 1920, in Munich.

    • Nazi comes from ashkenazi, being a dubious acronym for anything else.

  • Verbal Bomb Chucker

    Close the school down, the college is just a training camp for future Terrorist.

  • g.johnon

    this is a result of children being left to montessori pre-school to be raised by effete snobs instead of by genuine parental love and care, after which no child left behind kicks in and the poor kids haven’t got a snowflake’s chance in hell.
    why have we the peeps tolerated this lefty-ass shit for so long?
    no whites allowed cuz they are racists?!! really?!
