New Zealand Evacuates Concert Right Wing Tattoo

A New Zealand music festival was evacuated over the weekend after a concert goer spotted a fellow attendee sporting what they thought was a “right wing tattoo.”

New Zealand’s Homegrown Festival was evacuated over the weekend amid the current hysteria after a concert goer was spotted with what was assumed to be a “right wing tattoo.”

It was later established by police, who questioned the concertgoer with the allegedly offensive tattoo, that it was in fact a tribal design, likely meant to honor New Zealand’s native Maori population. Police called it an “innocent misunderstanding” and allowed attendees to reenter after he was questioned.

Nearly 5,000 concert goers were evacuated because of the body art.

Police chose to evacuate the entire festival because the individual with the allegedly right wing tattoo was not easily singled out from the crowd after the report was made. The report apparently came in as music groups were trading places on stage, meaning some of those attending the concert were leaving as others were arriving.

While police and the venue have posted statements declaring there was no threat to the safety of concertgoers, they also have yet to explain why a “right wing tattoo” would be a reason to evacuate 5,000 people from a public space.

Big League Politics contacted the event organizers to ask what would have happened to the attendee if he had been sporting “right wing” body art, and whether they inspect the tattoos of all of their attendees.

In response, the event organizers replied that they had no intention of removing the person with possibly offending body art, or to inspect the body art of its attendees, but said that “there were numerous factors involved and unfortunately due to recent events security was hyper vigilant,” adding, “It was an innocent misunderstanding, human error. We are very sorry to all for any inconvenience.”

Berkeley Thug Arrested, Jailed After Hate Crime Threats Targeting Asians

Another white nationalist crime?

Published

A Berkeley, California man with an extensive criminal history has been arrested and jailed after threatening Asians online. Reginald Jackson was jailed for violating terms of his parole after a judge learned of online threats the repeat felon leveled towards members of the Asian community.

I’m gone blow a Asian done today

Like I said I’m in the town looking for an Asian to rob

Jackson has been previously convicted of attempted robbery as a minor, assault with a deadly weapon, obstruction of a police officer, and multiple counts of possessing weapons as a felon.

A judge ordered Jackson to be jailed on a parole violation with a bond of $190,000, citing “incredible concern” with the frequency of his arrests on Tuesday. It’s unclear if Jackson, who the Oakland Police Department has identified as a gang member, will face criminal charges related to his violent threats leveled against Asians online.

Jackson’s arrest comes as members of the Asian community are drawing attention to a slew of violent crimes targeting Asians in California and across the country. In spite of video evidence revealing that some of the prominent crimes in question have been committed by blacks, protest movements in response to the crimes have blamed supposed “white nationalists” for the crimes. A left-wing protest in New York City blamed “white supremacy” for the hate crimes, seemingly looking the other way at the dynamics behind the incidents.

There’s reason to believe that the crimes in question have been enabled by soft-on-crime practices utilized in California and New York, where repeat offenders are often released from the criminal justice system with a slap on the wrist. If members of the community continue to blame fictitious bogeymen for their occurrences, it’s likely the racially charged hate crimes will continue.
