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.

Virginia Republicans Coalesce Around Corey Stewart After Stellar Debate Performance
U.S. Senate Candidate from Virginia, Corey Stewart, is picking up momentum and support after crushing Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) in the first debate between the two yesterday.
“It’s time to retire these career politicians and elect true representation, starting with Tim Kaine,” wrote Frank McDonough in The Bull Elephant. “His opponent, Corey Stewart is a true Virginian and will vote in the Senate as a Virginian. Not a Trump sycophant, or a party shill. That’s all the people want, someone to look out for them across the Potomac in DC.”
The subtext of yesterday’s entire debate centered around Kaine’s image as a D.C. establishment lackey, an image that will likely be tough to shake after running for Vice President on Hillary Clinton’s ticket.
“In fact, there is only one conclusion to draw from the voting record of Virginias Democrat Senators, they are doing a great job of representing The Village, San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer,” McDonough wrote. “They are doing an abysmal job of representing Virginia.”
“Virginia values. That is the entire issue in the fall. Whether Virginians will finally be represented by a Senator who reflects our values. Limited Government, Personal Liberty. National Security. National Pride. LEGAL Immigration.”
While bought-and-paid-for Democrats will not get the job done in Virginia, Stewart appears prepared to serve the agenda of Virginians, which largely aligns with the agenda of President Donald J. Trump.
