The Guardian Celebrates Same Antifa Group That Firebombed An ICE Facility Days Prior

Antifa seems to be endorsed by the media

Published

on

In a Monday article published by far-left extremist Kim Kelly, The Guardian profiled the far-left militant group Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club in a glowing article about their recent involvement “defending” a trans-pride march.

The article, titled ‘If others have rifles, we’ll have rifles’: why US leftist groups are taking up arms, Kelly shadows the group, stating that their aim is to “fight white supremacy and build community defense in America’s Pacific north-west.” But she all but ignores the recent terrorist actions of one of their members, Willem Van Spronsen, who firebombed an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington, before being shot dead by law enforcement, simply including one mention of the attack, which she downplays.

That isn’t surprising considering that Kelly has supported the terrorist actions of Van Spronsen in the past, calling it “an act of righteous sabotage” in a July 14th Tweet.

Not only that, but Kelly includes a black flag, popularly considered an Antifa symbol in her Twitter bio. She also advertises the fact that she founded “Black Flags Over Brooklyn,” a self-proclaimed Antifa music festival.

So it is no surprise that Kelly, who shockingly writes for Teen Vogue, is willing to paint a far-left extremist group as reasonable.

Throughout Kelly’s entire article, she takes members of the extremist group at their word, without any fact-checking from outside sources. At one point, she allows a group member going simply by the name “Fozz” to downplay the group’s extremism without any push-back:

“Part of the reason we don’t cover our faces is that we don’t want to present as though we are a militia,” Fozz, a longtime member, explained. “We are not. We want to build relationships with people in our community, we want to appear approachable.”

Despite their attempt to seem reasonable, research done by anti-extremism watchdog Far-Left Watch paints a much different story.

In 2017, Far-Left Watch exposed Redneck Revolt, an off-shoot of John Brown Gun Club, which for all intents and purposes are basically the same group, for offering training manuals on “kidnapping”, “executions”, and “terrorism.”

As reported by Far-Left Watch:

“Redneck Revolt’s organizing principles mirror much of what you would see on any other far left organizing platform. They begin with their very reasonable, very easy to support, opposition to “white supremacy”. They then dive into class theory, anti-capitalist, and anti-wealth rhetoric that could have been copied directly from The Communist Manifesto. And finally, they wrap up with open calls for “militant resistance” and “revolution”.

Since their inception, Redneck Revolt has been very busy recruiting at gun shows and community events, advocating for class war, contributing to the far left anarchist website It’s Going Down, and conducting armed anti-Trump demonstrations.

But what’s most alarming are the resources they provide on their website. They promote several PDFs that endorse “armed struggle” and even offer a 36 page “Mini-Manual Of The Urban Guerrilla” (bottom right of resource page) which pictures left-wing militants using RPGs and outlines tactics for guerrilla warfare including sections on “sabotage”, “kidnapping”, “executions”, “armed propaganda”, and “terrorism”.”

So it isn’t all that surprising that a group that offered resources on “sabotage” and “terrorism” would have a member follow through on their training.

Kelly isn’t the only “reporter” at The Guardian who supports the actions of Antifa. As Dr. Eoin Lenihan, an online extremism researcher points out in a Quillette article, Jason Wilson of The Guardian not only sympathizes with Antifa, but often uses his platform at the publication to promote them:

“But Wilson is not simply a pro-Antifa activist who also happens to write for the Guardian: He actively leverages his role as a regular Guardian writer to promote Antifa, whitewash its violence, and signal-boost its leaders (whom he presents as “experts”)—often under the guise of neutral news reporting.”

It is clear that The Guardian has an Antifa problem. The question is whether they are going to do anything about it.

New Mexico Bureaucrat Arrested for Vandalizing State GOP Headquarters

Cameron Chase McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s Democratic governor.

Published

on

A New Mexico state employee heavily connected to the state Democratic party is being charged with vandalizing the Republican Party’s headquarters in the state.

Cameron Chase McCall was arrested Thursday in relation to spray-paint vandalism of the Republican Party offices in Albuquerque. The Expo New Mexico employee was caught on surveillance cameras spraying the words “still traitors” on the building.

Republican Party officials say the vandalism will cost more than $4,000 to repair.

A quick look into McCall’s background shows his motives to be readily apparent. McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s liberal Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, when she was a member of congress. She condemned her intern’s behavior in a statement released following his arrest.

Albuquerque police are also investigating if McCall is responsible for a closely similar incident back in March, when the same Republican Party offices were spraypainted with the word “traitors.” Sources indicate that the same kind of spray paint was used in both incidents. The initial act of vandalism inspired Republicans to install cameras at the offices, which proved crucial in identifying McCall as the culprit of the latest political crime.

Expo New Mexico is a state-run convention center in Albuquerque. A Bernalillo county judge identified McCall as a “sponsorship coordinator” for the venue during his initial appearance in court on Thursday. McCall was suspended from his job following his vandalism arrest, and officials with the entity state that he’ll be fired if he’s convicted of the charges.

McCall has been released on bond to await trial. He’s one of several political zealots to make national news recently for acting on their hatred for the Republican Party by committing crimes.
