A candid response in the wake of my on-the-ground reports from the so-called Unite The Right rally in Virginia this weekend:
But before I begin, a word to the hundreds of individuals who reached out expressing concern and gratitude for my reports. I am now safe and sound, and I can’t take credit for having done anything extraordinary. I simply kept my camera rolling.
It breaks my heart that a young woman left her house on Saturday morning and will never return. It’s horrific. Her family is in my prayers.
And I condemn James Field’s alleged actions in the strongest possible terms. I thank God for having been spared from the carnage.
Now, a word to the growing chorus of haters who have called me every slanderous name, threatened to dox those closest to me, and many of whom have wished me dead:
You do not define me.
So, allow me to define myself:
I do not bathe in tears of white guilt. That does not make me a white supremacist.
I oppose state multiculturalism and affirmative action. That does not make me a racist.
I reject cultural relativism. That does not make me a fascist.
I think the false song of “social justice” has rotted the West from the inside out. But I have never called for violence against any of their adherents.
I love my country and want its borders protected. That does not make me Alt Right.
And for Pete’s sakes, I work for a Jewish boss and am a Christian advocate for the one-state solution for Israel— I am not a damn neo-Nazi.
When I said that the Charlottesville Statement was a thoughtful document, it was not an endorsement. It was my sense that there were grounds upon which to engage in conversation — NOT PHYSICAL COMBAT — with the Alt Right, something I made very clear in my interviews, even encouraging the left to make a rebuttal to the 20 point manifesto.
When I said there is a rise in white racial consciousness, it is because I believe that to be true.
It is an observation I have made and one that laid bare on the streets of Charlottesville this weekend. An observation that neither side of US politics seems to want to admit: the promotion of identity politics combined with the declining white super majority has led to a new movement; I am not endorsing it, only pointing to the fact that it exists.
This weekend, I intended to report on the facts wherever they led — and there were many that the mainstream media missed in their own reports; too busy condemning the Alt Right and accusing me of being one of their ilk.
Now, a word to the corporate media: What happened in Charlottesville was a stark violation of not only a group’s first amendment rights, but a federal court order.
The police failed to uphold the law. They failed to keep the opposing groups separate even when tensions ran red hot, and they failed to be present in the moments before the scene became deadly.
You see, the car attack was not the only horrific scene that day. There were countless incidents of illegal deployment of mace, guns drawn, sticks and flag poles used--and from left-wing demonstrators more often as right. Alt-left violence is nothing new - we’ve seen it at countless protests over the past year.
And yet, only one group is protected by you the media— not to mention the politicians & and some police forces, too.
Left-wing violence at Trump rallies in Chicago, San Jose, Trump’s inauguration, Berkeley— you all just turn a blind eye. You’re happy to loop the b-roll of the handful of idiots with swastika flags but don’t say a damn thing about the scores of Antifa and BLM donning the emblem (associated with even more blood) of the hammer and sickle.
And then, you try to tie the whole thing to Trump! Well, newsflash: this isn’t Trump’s fault. It’s the whole damn culture’s fault. Decades of identity politics rammed down the throats of our young in their classrooms, now permeates our corporate culture.
Several months ago, I predicted a civil war was coming to America. Today, it’s without hesitation that I can say: That civil war has begun.
No one in their right mind can look at the images to emerge from Charlottesville this weekend and deny it… From mace, shields, and flagpoles to gas masks, kevlar and firearms — America is experiencing an escalating civil war à la 2017.
Sure, neighbour might not be fighting neighbour in the street without warning but, what we have seen are organized battlegrounds, every few weeks, where a right wing group (be they Alt Right or Alt Light) organizes a rally only to be stormed by the instigating, violent Alt Left-- let down by the police, and condemned by politicians.
It’s a dangerous cycle we have entered — one that many of us in the alternative media have been warning about for months. And I’ll be damned if a single person out there wishes to label me a sympathizer of violent behaviour.
I’m one of the many trying to put a stop to escalating tensions and America’s cultural and political civil war.
So, sorry guys, just because you label everyone you disagree with “a Nazi”— doesn’t make it the truth.
