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

Published

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.

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.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
