A man who is apparently known as an ANTIFA ‘commander’ was arrested for riot activities over the weekend, and reportedly was caught carrying a flamethrower and smoke grenades to what he claimed would be a peaceful protest.
Matthew Banta, 23, is purportedly known as “Commander Red” to ANTIFA militants active in the Green Baay area. He was charged last month with pointing a loaded long gun at a police officer, and later “biting and kicking” the cop. As a condition of his $10,000 bond on the charges, he was banned from possessing weapons.
This didn’t stop Banta from bringing devices polices have described as a “flamethrower” and smoke grenades to a protest event in Green Bay over the weekend.
The Green Bay Police were reportedly called, with a community member reporting “a whole bunch of white people with sticks, baseball bats and helmets headed… towards the police.” A responding officer would go on to confront a heavily armed group of ANTIFA militants, including Banta. The group attempted to flee from the responding officer, but Banta was apprehended. The ANTIFA “Commander Red” went on to play victim, with the police officer stating that Banta “dropped into the fetal position and began crying.”
Banta claimed that he was merely attending a peaceful protest, ignoring that he had been barred from possessing weapons as a condition of his existing bond. He appeared in a court on new charges of felony bail jumping and obstructing a police officer on Monday.
Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith has described Banta as an out-of-town agitator. “It’s worrisome when people associated with Antifa come here to Green Bay from out of town for the purpose of protesting here or for the purposes of committing violent acts,” said the Chief.
Despite a violation of his existing bail, Banta was granted a new $2,500 bond on the two new charges Monday. Perhaps the feared ANTIFA “Commander Red” will go for a third strike with another riot crime.
Judge Dismisses Transgender Woman’s “Discrimination” Lawsuit Against Miss USA Pageant
Miss USA remains a pageant for biological females only.
Last Thursday a federal judge dismissed a transgender woman’s lawsuit that accused the Miss USA pageant of discrimination.
Anita Noelle Green is a biological male who claimed that “she” had a right to participate in the pageant’s competitions, but US District Judge Michael W. Mosman found that the law is not on “her” side.
Judge Mosman ruled that Miss United States of America LLC, a private corporation, cannot be forced to violate its mission of promoting “natural-born” females.
“I view it as an association that cannot under the Constitution be required to allow plaintiff to participate in what defendant says is a contradiction of that message,” he said.
Green competed in the 2018 Miss Montana pageant and won the 2019 Miss Earth Elite Oregon competition—but Miss USA denied “her” application. Green’s lawyer attempted to argue that the Miss USA corporation is predominately a commercial business that’s granted “minimal protection,” not a First Amendment-protected “expressive association.”
Judge Mosman, however, disagreed and found the pageant corporation to be a predominately expressive association, meaning that it is engaged in expressive activity and promotes a message.
In related news, Big League Politics recently covered Sen. Rand Paul’s confrontation with transgender HHS nominee Rachel Levine about “her” unwillingness to say that minors shouldn’t be bypassing their parents and making their own decisions about transitioning:
At Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Rand Paul confronted Rachel Levine, a transgender doctor and Biden’s Assistant HHS Secretary nominee, asking if “she” supports minors overriding their parents on transitioning to the opposite sex.
Levine’s response was as follows: “Senator, transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field, and if confirmed to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health, I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care…”
