Antifa Calls For Unrest — Even if Milo’s Free Speech Week is Cancelled

Published

on

Even if they get their way and Milo Yiannopoulos’ Free Speech Week gets called off, members of Berkeley Antifa and the popular anarchist website It’s Going Down are calling for unrest to still go on as planned.

While Yiannopoulos insists that the event will be happening, there have been many questions and a wave of uncertainty surrounding speakers and the scheduling. The student group that was in charge of organizing the four-day-long event, the Berkeley Patriots, have also pulled out over issues with the university.

Still, even if the left wins and nobody gets to speak — the petulant militants known as Antifa can’t pass up an opportunity to protest and act out. It remains unclear what exactly they would be protesting, however.

“Regardless of whatever happens with Milo’s shit show – tomorrow #BayArea will turn out against Alt-Right trolls backed by billionaires,” It’s Going Down tweeted along with a flyer for a march.

The march is scheduled to take place on Saturday, the day before Free Speech Week is expected to kick off. Billed as the ‘March Against White Supremacy,’ it is scheduled to kick off at noon on 63rd and Adeline.

As Amy Moreno reported for TruthFeed, It’s Going Down frequently publishes works from people bragging about their criminal actions, provides suggestions on derailing police investigations into Antifa cells and individuals by filing false reports.

“Let’s make sure that any real messages from citizen-snitches get drowned out by a cacophony of white noise,” It’s Going Down suggests.

The website was also used by members of Antifa to take credit for detonating an explosive device at an Exxon Mobil facility in Mexico.

After a group of terrorists used explosives on police vehicles in the Mexican city of Ecatepec de Morelos, It’s Going Down published a manifesto stating that “violence can and should be demystified and made commonplace, made available to any individuality, without turning to professionalism or revolutionary heroism.”

“Utopia and revolution interest us little. We want revenge. We have no program or ideology, we just have our guts, our delusions, selfish desires, whims, tantrums, etc,” the manifesto continued.

Meanwhile, as these black-clad hooligans urge people to create chaos in the city even if Yiannopoulos no-shows, a police investigation is underway over right-wing free speech supporters using chalk and putting up posters on the Berkeley campus.

Virginia School District Stops Celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day Because of the “Racial Undertones” in His Books

It’s all so tiresome.

The Loudoun County School District in northern Virginia has stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss during Read Across America Day because of the “strong racial undertones” in some of his books.

Research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss. Examples include anti-Japanese American political cartoons and cartoons depicting African Americans for sale captioned with offensive language,” the district wrote in a statement.

Given this research, and LCPS’ focus on equity and culturally responsive instruction, LCPS provided this guidance to schools during the past couple of years to not connect Read Across America Day exclusively with Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Dr. Seuss and his books are no longer the emphasis of ‘Read Across America Day’ in Loudoun County Public Schools,” the statement added.

To be clear, this does not mean that Loudoun County School District is outright banning Dr. Seuss’ books. They are still available for children to read in their libraries and classrooms.

Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2, the day of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and many schools across the country celebrate National Reading Month every March.

The National Education Association, which created National Reading Month and Read Across America Day, started to distance themselves from explicit promotion of Dr. Seuss in 2017 and now promotes non-white authors who write books about “racial justice,” “inclusivity,” and so on.

Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, worked as a political cartoonist in addition to illustrating and writing children’s books. Interestingly enough, Geisel was a passionate supporter of FDR and a lifelong liberal Democrat.
