There has been a battle for free speech happening across the country in cities from Boston to Berkeley — and now it is heading straight for the nation’s capital.
On June 25, free speech activists will gather at the Lincoln Memorial to protest against the violent attempts to suppress right wing voices. An array of speakers will be taking the mic at the event, including Kyle Chapman (better known as Based Stick Man), Tim Treadstone (better known as Baked Alaska), Jack Posobiec, Augustus Invictus, Kyle Prescott, Jason Kessler, Irma Hinojosa, and James Allsup.
“In light of the dramatic increase in anti-Free Speech sentiment, legislative activity, violence (e.g., terrorist actions by ‘AntiFA’), and law enforcement activity (e.g., the LEO stand-down orders in Berkeley, CA), we the Free Speech Movement are gathered here to reaffirm a commitment to the basic necessity of Freedom of Speech in civil society,” the Facebook page for the event reads.
Previously, free speech events in Berkeley have lead to the blood of activists on both sides spilling onto the streets, and have continued to escalate — as violent leftists riot to prevent right wing speakers from being able to express their views.
Augustus Invictus, an attorney, publisher, and former Libertarian candidate for the US Senate who is travelling from Orlando to speak at the rally told Big League that this event is important because “people in America are sick to death of the totalitarian agenda of the left.”
“We were all raised in this country to believe in the freedom of speech and association, the right to bear arms, and all the rest that comes along with the Bill of Rights,” Invictus said. “The leftist violence we have seen across the country has been an attempt to suppress those freedoms that are guaranteed by our founding documents, and those of us speaking at the event are the necessary – and at this point, welcome – retribution.”
The fact that the rally is being held at the Lincoln Memorial is an important statement in itself, independent Journalist, author, and free speech activist Jack Posobiec told Big League Politics.
Posobiec stated that “we are following in the steps of Martin Luther King.”
“The Lincoln Memorial is a legendary symbol of civil rights in America and that is why it is so important for us to hold our free speech rally there in the face of threats from the militant left and domestic terrorists AntiFa, to let them know that we will not be silenced and our First Amendment civil rights will be upheld,” Posobiec added.
Colton Merwin, a Baltimore resident who is organizing the rally, told Big League Politics that he “was inspired originally by the gatherings in Berkeley and the riots at Milo’s event as well as the Inauguration.”
“We believe in speech as the mode by which we are both empowered to express our beliefs, and as the crucial instrument that allows us to peacefully reconcile differences that arise within an ideologically diverse community,” Merwin wrote in the event description. “Without the freedom to exercise this right, individuals possess no means by which they can settle their differences through persuasion and compromise, leaving them with no recourse other than leveraging the power of the state or using extrajudicial force against their ideological opponents. No free society can long survive when there is no peaceful outlet for resolving differences.”
BLP asked Merwin if he thinks there will be problems with AntiFa, as we have seen violent clashes nearly every time that free speech activists gather — most recently in Portland on Sunday.
“I am 80% sure they will be protesting, their upset after those arrested on J20 have fueled a bit of an uproar. If they do come, the police are on our side so we will be for the most part safe,” Merwin said. He also noted that he met with the DC police and the permits office yesterday and got the permits confirmed.
Interestingly, DC AntiFa already has a protest planned for the 25th, but it is not currently set as a response to the free speech rally. Groups such as “Smash Racism DC” who put out a target list prior to the inaugural ‘DeploraBall’ at the National Press Club have been actively organizing a protest outside the police department over arrests during the riot on inauguration day.
The protest they are holding is being advertised as a “speakout against fascism and state repression at Washington DC Metro Police Headquarters on Sunday, June 25, at 12:00 PM.”
Ironically, the left’s event is also being listed as a “free speech” rally. Judging by DC AntiFa’s previous antics and attempts to prevent right wing groups and individuals from holding speeches or gathering, they are advocates for “free speech for me, but not for thee.”
“The right wing can have their sham ‘free speech’ rallies, but we know they are mobilizing to deny even the right to exist to those who don’t look like them. They can wave their flags, as if they have forgotten that their stars are stolen indigenous land and their stripes are the blood of the poor and the enslaved,” a statement by the event organizers reads. “We will rally at the headquarters of one of the worst suppressors and deniers of speech—the police.”
Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.
This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.
“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.
Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.
“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said.
“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…
Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”
The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
