Lauren Southern Detained By Italian Coast Guard for Attempting to Block Illegal Migrant Boats

Published

on

Activist, author, and political commentator Lauren Southern was detained by the Italian coast guard after attempting to stop a boat from carrying illegal migrants into the country.

During a livestream broadcast on Periscope, Southern explained that the large ship they were trying to stop is called the Aquarius, a German NGO boat, which has been illegally bringing migrants from the Libyan Sea to Sicily. Southern explained that the ship was on their way to go pick up more migrants, and she was hoping to stop them.

Southern said that the group she was with,“Génération Identitaire” has been working with German, French, Italian, Austrian, Canadian, and American citizens.

A declaration on an English language Génération Identitaire website states:

“We are 25 percent unemployment, social debt, multicultural collapse and an explosion of anti-white racism. We are broken families, and young French soldiers dying in Afghanistan.

You won’t buy us with a condescending look, a state-paid job of misery, and a pat on the shoulder.

We don’t need your youth-policies. Youth IS our policy.

Don’t think this is simply a manifesto. It is a declaration of war.

You are of yesterday, we are of tomorrow.

We are Génération Identitaire.”

From their much smaller boat, Southern and three other Gen ID activists set off flares and unfurled a large red banner that read, “NO WAY FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING.”

“If the politicians won’t stop the boats, we’ll stop the boats… and we’ll be back with more boats,” Southern told Big League Politics.

The group was briefly detained by the Italian Coast Guard for their act of civil disobedience, but have since been released. They will find out if there will be charges in 48 hours.

Southern, formerly a Rebel Media reporter, released a book last year titled “Barbarians: How Baby Boomers, Immigrants, and Islam Screwed My Generation.” She is most well known for her stances on immigration, feminism, and the freedom of speech.

UPDATE: Southern has posted a video calling for /pol/ to assist in locating the NGO ships that are transporting illegal migrants.

The infamous 4chan message board was the original site of the recent leak of Emmanuel Macron’s hacked emails. They previously managed to track down Shia Labeouf’s “He Will Not Divide Us” anti-Donald Trump protest flag in a random field in Tennessee using flight patterns — replacing it with a MAGA hat.

“You on the internet — and we on the sea — together we can stop this,” a member of the Génération Identitaire group says in Southern’s video.

‘You Should Be Backing Bernie Sanders’: Nigel Farage Celebrates Democrat Party Extremism at CPAC

Published

on

Brexit mastermind Nigel Farage talked about the success of populism in his home nation of Britain and abroad while giving a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md.

“I take it you’re a pro-Brexit crowd!” Farage said to wild applause to start his speech, describing himself as CPAC’s “resident foreign speaker.”

Farage called deposed former Tory Prime Minister Theresa May the worst Prime Minister in the history of the United Kingdom to start his speech and talked about the formation of his new political entity.

“We ironically became the largest delegation in the European Parliament of any European country,” Farage said of his Brexit party, also crediting his party’s success with the resignation of May.

“Boris has become the leader, and Boris to date has picked up every word and every phrase that I have stood and fought for for nearly 30 years. It’s really great news, and it means at long last we have finally left the European Union!” Farage exclaimed.

He boasted about being the most “notorious” MEP in the history of European parliament, and he was happy to be finished in dealing with the European Union.

“I don’t just want the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. I want Europe to leave the European Union,” he said.

Farage credited former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn with helping to strengthen the Tory coalition united around the Brexit. He believes that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) can do the same thing to the Republican Party in the U.S.

“You should be backing Bernie Sanders. You should be campaigning for Bernie Sanders. You should be donating money to Bernie Sanders. You should be making sure that Bernie Sanders gets that nomination. You need a Democrat Party as far left-wing, as anti-American as they possibly can be,” he explained.

“Not only will you get four more years of this great President Trump, but I think with Bernie, you won’t just get Trump. With Bernie, I think you can re-take the House too!” he added.

Farage talked up President Trump, who he described as his “friend,” as leading the fight to end globalism.

“You are part of a big moment in history, and with four more years of Donald Trump, we will complete the job,” Farage said to conclude his speech, which ended the second day of the CPAC event. It will conclude after Saturday when Trump addresses the event.
