Award winning independent journalist Tim Pool, who is widely celebrated for his unbiased presentation of events, has announced that he does not believe it is safe for him to cover US political rallies due to escalating threats from antifa, as well as escalating trolls from the right.
“When I go to these events who are creepy stalkers who are conservative leaning trolls and then there is antifa sending me threats, it’s just become too weird,” Pool told Big League Politics.
In a video statement, Pool noted that most of his coverage is international — from Sweden to Ukraine. He is also known to occasionally cover domestic events, however, including the free speech rallies and riots in Ferguson and Baltimore.
“On the antifa side, I get death threats, they post lies about me, they make up crazy stories accusing me of being a fed,” Pool begins. “I was forced to flee Venezuela because some of these activists thought it would be funny to convince people in Venezuela that I was a spy.”
He explained that he has had people attempt to get into his Ubers, his home address emailed to him, and on Saturday — someone sneaking up on him attempting to steal his hat. He stated that while stealing his hat is generally meaningless, it presents the possibility that someone may sneak up on him and hit him.
“The antifa guy assaulted me, it was verbal — the conservative troll actually grabbed me,” Pool told BLP. “One was meant to be harmless fun, but now I am on edge because people think they can come up and put their hands on me.”
He noted that while he has had to deal with some creeps on the right — only members of the far left have actually threatened his safety.
“The extreme right has never threatened or attacked me,” Pool told BLP. “I have never been physically attacked by the extreme right, only the extreme left. However, it isn’t just one issue that is making it clear that it is reckless to show up without security — and I don’t want security.”
On Saturday, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in Boston to hold a free speech rally. Pool was in town to cover it when someone from the free speech side snuck up behind him and attempted to snatch the hat off his head, he was also verbally attacked by a member of antifa.
“If you put your hands on me I’ll knock your teeth out, I don’t give a fuck who you think you are,” Pool told BLP. “The only reason I didn’t in this case was because we had the entire Boston PD surrounding us. If I had, I would have been the one to be arrested.”
“You have people in antifa saying ‘punch a Nazi,’ and then people up on that hill were calling me a Nazi — on the livesteam people were saying that I am a Nazi sympathizer and that I’m a known alt-right person or whatever,” Pool said.
Pool is one of the rare journalists who does not publicly express his political views and will criticize both sides. Sadly, this has made him a target of more extreme members of both sides.
“I’m at the point where people feel welcome to come up and put their hands on me,” Pool said. “Are people on the left going to think it’s okay to come up and punch me in the face?”
Due to his increased notoriety, Pool believes that he now faces a serious threat at domestic events — where as internationally he is rarely recognized. He explained that he does not want to be part of the stories he is covering.
President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools
An alternative to leftist brainwashing.
President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.
The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)
The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.
“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”
“These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”
“We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.
The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
