Antifa’s November 4th revolution was a big Antifail

What if they gave a revolution and no one came?

That’s what happened yesterday, November 4, to the Antifa Revolution that was supposed to be the first shot in a new civil war.

Protests were held in about 20 cities across America, most with a smattering of “revolutionaries,” like the one in Cincinnati in which only 30 people showed up.

One of the November 4th organizers was a group called Refuse Fascism, as in “refuse” the verb.

It turns out Refuse Fascism should really be “refuse” the noun, as in refuse or garbage.

This pic perfectly captured the November 4th Antifail:

Antifa threatens to behead whites and small biz owners on November 4

Antifa, the Progressive communist group identified by the Obama administration in April 2016 as “domestic terrorists,” has declared tomorrow, November 4, to be a day of “revolution” in the United States.

They even took out a full-page ad in the New York Times to that effect.

According to InfoWars, the ad was written by Refuse Fascism, a communist group funded by George Soros which took responsibility for shutting down a conservative event hosting journalist Milo Yiannopoulos at U.C. Berkeley last February.

On October 30, 2017, an individual identified by Gateway Pundit as a leader of Antifa, Tom Bloke @21logician, tweeted a menacing threat, that on November 4, millions of Antifa “supersoldiers” will decapitate white parents and small business owners:

Bloke took down that tweet, but not before other Progressives responded to the threat with enthusiasm. As an example:

It turns out Tom Bloke’s tweet is actually a retweet of an earlier tweet by Krang Nelson @KrangTNelson:

Nelson claims his tweet was a satire. His tweet was reported to Twitter, which led to his Twitter account being temporarily suspended, then reactivated just after 9 p.m. on October 30.

Tom Bloke @21logician told Chris Caesar of Mic that he has no affiliations with Antifa. (Bloke’s Twitter page says he’s in New Zealand.) He said he published the tweet to protest Twitter’s (temporary) suspension of Krang, and that “Tom Bloke” isn’t even his real name. Bloke said in a direct message to Mic:

“It’s baffling to me that such an obvious joke — stolen from another guy, as a joke — turns into an article where I’m suddenly cited as an antifa leader. “he right-wing fake-news machine is on another level of stupid that is hard for me to understand. I don’t even like antifa that much.”

As for Antifa’s revolution tomorrow, Mic claims it, too, is not true, and blames the hysteria on InfoWars:

“the Nov. 4 conspiracy theory is — you guessed it — a baseless lie. There is no evidence for an attack. There is no evidence of planned violence. A cofounder of the group organizing the event said it is a peaceful call for nonviolent protest. […]

The Nov. 4 conspiracy centers on alleged antifa documents that call for violence aimed at fomenting a ‘civil war’ between Trump supporters and antifa on Nov. 4. Much of this wild speculation seems derived from a deeply dubious and widely shared report on right-wing conspiracy hub InfoWars by YouTuber and blogger Paul Joseph Watson.

The InfoWars post links to a statement on the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, which indeed calls for demonstrations against Trump in numerous U.S. cities on Nov. 4. At no point, though, does it call for ‘violence’ or ‘riots,’ let alone a ‘civil war,’ as Watson reported.

Watson seems to parse the statement’s fleeting reference to a book published in 2005 by Communist Party Chairman Bob Avakian — The Coming Civil War and Repolarization for Revolution in the Present Era — as a sign that thousands of people are actually planning to start a civil war.

From there, things really flew off the rails. On Sept. 29, InfoWars’ Alex Jones told his viewers that ‘we have a flood of antifa saying that they’re preparing with weapons, knives and guns to kill conservatives, patriots and white people en masse.’

Posts like this one started to go viral, with far-right activists claiming law enforcement sources told them things like ‘Black Lives Matter’ received ‘almost 25 million [dollars] for weapons and other tools to supply groups that plan to attack ‘white people,’ that Trump had deputized ‘over 4 million military people’ to prepare for a coming civil war with antifa and that ‘800,000’ antifa soldiers would likely team up with gang members from MS-13 for the fight.

There is no evidence for any of these claims.

If by “Antifa supersoldiers” is meant this (see below), I agree with Mic.

I predict tomorrow, November 4, will come and go with no revolution or civil war. And if there is, Antifa will quickly be vanquished by real Americans.

Corporate donors to Resist Trump movement & Antifa domestic terrorists

Joe Schoffstall reports, Oct. 4, 2017, that Washington Free Beacon obtained unredacted 2015 tax forms showing the hidden donors to a prominent anti-Trump “resistance” organization, the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Community Change Action (CCCA).

CCCA does not reveal its donors. The organization has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after last November’s elections. CCAA members sit on the boards of other prominent liberal activist groups.

The tax form obtained by Washington Beacon shows that Center for Community Change Action appears to rely heavily on a few major liberal foundations, organizations, and unions:

(1) The three largest donors are:

  • W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the source of CCCA’s largest contribution of $3 million. The foundation was created by Will Kellogg, the food manufacturer and founder of Kellogg Company.
  • Ford Foundation donated $2.35 million to CCCA. Created by the founders of the Ford Motor Company, the Ford Foundation is no longer connected to the Ford Motor Company but, inexplicably, retains the Ford name.
  • George Soros’ Open Society Foundation gave $1.75 million.

(2) Other donors include:

  • California Endowment, $524,500.
  • Marquerite Casey Foundation, $515,000.
  • Fidelity Charitable Gift, $505,100 (Fidelity itself did not donate, this figure reflects private individuals who used the company as a charitable vehicle for their own donations — whatever that means. A representative from Fidelity Charitable said the donations do not represent the views or endorsement of Fidelity Charitable or Fidelity Investments.)
  • National Immigration Law Center, $316,000.

(3) Donors to CCCA’s “social welfare” (c)(4) arm:

  • Every Citizen Counts, a nonprofit that was created by allies of Hillary Clinton to mobilize Latino and African-American voters, donated $1.75 million.
  • Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, $1.475 million.
  • Sixteen Thirty Fund, $610,000.
  • Center for Community Change, $150,000.
  • Services Employees International Union (SEIU), $150,000.
  • Atlantic Philanthropies, $75,000.
  • Tides Foundation, the largest liberal donor-advised network, donated $50,000.

Members of the anti-Trump CCCA also sit on the advisory boards of other prominent liberal and “resistance” organizations. Some examples:

  • Deepak Bhargava, CCCA’s executive director, sits on the advisory board of George Soros’s Open Society Foundation.
  • Charlene Sinclair, CCCNA’s director of reinvestment, sits on the board of directors of the Emergent Fund, which is aimed at pushing back against “immediate threats” to “immigrants, women, Muslim and Arab-American communities, black people, LGBTQ communities, and all people of color” — whatever that means. The fund consists of the Solidaire Network, the Threshold Foundation, and the Woman’s Donor Network. The Emergent Fund’s advisory board of members of prominent liberal organizations decides what organizations receive money from the group. Emergent Fund grants range from $10,000 to $50,000. Grant recipients include:
    • Black Lives Matter.
    • Center for Media Justice that was created to “organize the most under-represented communities in a national movement for media rights”.
    • Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative.
    • United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the United States which is behind “sanctuary campus” anti-Trump protests across the country to protect undocumented students. United We Dream was joined by CCCA in nationwide immigration protests leading up to Trump’s inauguration.

And the worst corporate donor to the Resist Trump movement?

Mozilla, the creator of the Firefox web browser.

The company has a program called Mozilla Open Source Support (MOSS). On October 3, 2017, Mozilla announced that one of the MOSS awards is $100,000 to RiseUp, “a coordination platform used by activists across the political spectrum, to improve the security of their email service”.

RiseUp is a self-described “anti-capitalist” email server used by Antifa groups, as explained by the video below.

In an April 2016 FBI/DHS joint confidential report, the Obama administration designated Antifa as “domestic terrorists”.

That means Mozilla is actually funding and enabling domestic terrorists to email each other.

Project Veritas undercover exposé: NYT editor admits he is anti-Trump and a violent Antifa

We already have plenty of evidence of the MSM’s blatant and apologetic partisanship, and their campaign of destruction against President Trump. See:

Now, in another brilliant undercover sting, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has captured on video New York Times editor Nicholas Dudich‘s admission that, contrary to journalism’s professional obligation to be objective, not only is he not objective about President Trump in his NYT job, he deliberately targets Trump’s businesses in order to “bring him down”.

As the New York Times‘ audience strategy editor, Dudich is the gatekeeper of the Times‘ videos, in charge of placing videos on other platforms, such as Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. As he put it, “My voice is on every . . . my imprint is on every video we do.”

A former campaign operative for Obama and Hillary Clinton, Dudich also admits to be a former member of Antifa — the leftwing group identified as “domestic terrorists” by an April 2016 joint confidential report of the Obama administration’s FBI and DHS. Dudich also claims to be former FBI director James Comey’s godson.

Here’s the Project Veritas undercover video:

Some choice quotes from the mouth of Dudich:

(1) He went into journalism in order to continue his former work on the presidential campaigns of Obama and Hillary Clinton presidential campaigns, which Dudich calls “keep doing shit”:

“Obama in 2012 I worked with, on the Obama campaign in 2012. And then I worked on the Obama campaign in 2008 doing social media. Like I have that background, so when Hillary Clinton in 2016, they needed someone to . . . help them do video and how to make it heartfelt for Clinton. . . . Like, after the Clinton campaign, I’m like, no, I need to get back into news and keep doing shit because, like, this isn’t going to change.”

(2) In his work for the NYT, Dudich deliberately targets Trump’s businesses to bring him down:

“I’d target his [President Trump’s] businesses, his dumb fuck of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric, so they’re running Trump, like, the Trump business. I target that. Get people to boycott going to his hotels. Boycott. So a lot of the Trump brands, if you can ruin the Trump brand, and you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down, or they’re hacking and other things. He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. He would resign. Or he’d lash out and do something incredibly illegal, which he would have to.”

(3) Dudich knows he’s in violation of the New York Times‘ professional ethics, specifically Section 62 of the Times’ Handbook on Ethical Journalism forbidding staff members from doing anything that might raise questions about their professional neutrality or that of the Times:

“Like, as a journalist, I’m not able to give any money to any political organization, I’m not able to volunteer for any political organization, I’m not able to work for any nonprofit or charity. Like, there’s a lot of guidelines and ethics.”

“I was, like, I saw the threat [posed by Trump] and I was, like, I want to do something . . . because Trump was . . . and still is a threat . . . to everything.

(4) Claiming former FBI director James Comey as his godfather, Dudich knows he has a conflict of interest because his behavior violates NYT‘s Section 107 that forbids staff members from writing or editing material or making news judgment people to whom they are related by blood or marriage, or with whom they have close person relationships:

James Comey “is my godfather . . . . My dad and mom knew him and his wife for a really long time  . . . No one at the Times has any idea about it.  So any time we [NYT] clip something from, whether it’s, like, the Sessions hearing or the Comey hearing, like, I should have recused myself, but I’m not ever telling anybody there that I have a tie with that, or else I don’t know if they’ll [NYT] keep me on.”

(5) He claims to have been recruited by the FBI to join Antifa and engaged in violence:

“Yeah, I used to be an Antifa punk once upon a time. I used to go after Nazi punks. I have punched neo-Nazis, many of them. [Pointing at a scar on his right hand] Actually, that is from a neo-Nazi’s tooth. Living in northeast Florida, pretty much southern Georgia, lot of neo-Nazis and a lot of KKK people. So I had fun. They’d start shit, I’m like I get to hit you. I’m so excited.”

Dudich then refused to “confirm or deny” that his godfather Comey knew about him being an Antifa who goes around punching people, because he doesn’t want to answer the question, “Did the FBI ask me to do that stuff?”

He then answered his own question:

“Why do you think I did it? [i.e, punching so-called neo-Nazis] I joined that stuff [Antifa] for them. I was an [FBI] asset. So it was intelligence gathering, seeing if they were, what their agenda was, whether they’re a threat or not.”

(6) Dudich says “some” members of Antifa are a threat to the United States for their “domestic terrorism,” which is consistent with the Obama administration’s FBI/DHS report in April 2016.

(7) Admits he lied about being Comey’s godson:

Project Veritas asked Dudich’s father and aunt. Both say they don’t know that Dudich is James Comey’s godson. Dudich Sr. says his son “was embellishing” when he claimed that the Dudich and Comey families are close, and that Dudich Sr. does not even know Comey.

The Project Veritas undercover journalist who had interviewed Nick Dudich then confronted him with what his father said, and asked how much of what Dudich told her is true. Dudich answered, “some,” and said he’s “not sure” why he would lie about Comey. He then said Comey is not his godfather and that he said it because “It’s a good story.”

O’Keefe concludes that the fact that Dudich admitted he’d lied about being Comey’s godson is very troublesome because Dudich is a “gatekeeper” of the New York Times. All of which raises legitimate questions about the Times‘ journalistic integrity.

In response to the video, New York Times spokeswoman Danielle Rhoades Ha, released this statement:

Based on what we’ve seen in the Project Veritas video, it appears that a recent hire in a junior position violated our ethical standards and misrepresented his role. In his role at The Times, he was responsible for posting already published video on other platforms and was never involved in the creation or editing of Times videos. We are reviewing the situation now.

Ha’s words are hollow, given the New York Times‘ track record. See:

O’Keefe promises that the Dudich sting is only the beginning of more Project Veritas exposés on the New York Times, so get your popcorn ready!
