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.
Parler CEO John Matze Forced to Flee Home Under Deluge of Left-Wing Terror Threats
Matze is suing Amazon for deplatforming Parler.
Parler CEO John Matze has been forced to flee his home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of left-wing death threats. Parler, a free speech social media platform, has been temporarily shut down in an extensive deplatforming campaign. Amazon promptly cut Parler’s access to its Web Services after the US Capitol riot earlier this month, cherry-picking examples of content that violate Parler’s terms of service and claiming the platform is being used for violent purposes.
Matze made the frank admission in a court filing for Parler’s lawsuit against Amazon, requesting that the court keep any disclosures about his personal life and location secret. Parler is currently suing Amazon in federal court for its immediate revocation of Parler’s hosting agreement, arguing that Amazon agreed to provide 30 days notice before any potential termination of Parler’s hosting, pursuant to the party’s original agreement.
Matze reveals that he’s been forced to leave his home and go into hiding with his family, citing Amazon Web Services’ “vilification” of his company.
Employees of Amazon have allegedly been threatened and harassed as well for shutting down Parler. The court filing in favor of redaction references these threats in requesting the court provide redaction of personal information to both sides.
“Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats—including, on both sides, death threats—owing to the charged nature of this litigation.
Parler therefore agrees with AWS that safety and security concerns justify the limited sealings requested here,” Parler requests in the Amazon lawsuit.
Parler’s administrators are still seeking to return the free speech social media platform to full operation, although it could take weeks to bring it back online. They may have learned a lesson about the futility of contracting hosting services with a Big Tech monopoly such as Amazon.
