Charlottesville, In My Own Words

Faith GoldyArchive

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.

William Kay , For your info the Detroit Red Wings and the National Hockey League immediately issued strong words of condemnation for the acts of violence in Charlottesville and words of warning of prosecution for the use of the copyrighted Red Wing logo which has been in use for 85 years.
Accusation and guilt by association is of course one of the main fallacies used by communists to advance their cause.

Don’t let idiots deter you. We can’t let them win. Keep up the good work!

Terry, the Intel comes from an Affidavit filed by Charlottesville Chief of Police Al Thomas days prior to the rally. Chief Thomas had communicated with the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigades of the Ku Klux Klan and with the Imperial Wizard of the Confederate Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. BOTH of these men hope to get 250 to 500 Klansmen to the rally. Former Grand Wizard David Duke was a featured guest. Several other neo-nazi groups: Vanguard America (Fields’ group), Detroit Right Wings, and Traditionalist Worker Party were very well represented.

For all the hysterics who are going off on Faith for “not condemning” the alt right protestors, “strongly enough”, you may as well go off at the ACLU also – they fought to have the demonstrators permit from being revoked. Yeah this lot of of trailer park race baiters are no poster boys for the 1st amendment, but those quick to be triggered best consider that their right to yammer like absolute gibbering idiots is directly tied to your right to publicly condemn them. Think about it instead of reacting.

William,no. Read my question again and take it at face value. I don’t trust these police. Period. There was every kind of unsavory faction there including the police. It’s quite a stretch to accuse Faith of complicity.

The political meme of the extremist fringes is to normalize/virtue-ize criminal violence and malicious vandalism for political purposes. This normalization of political violence has filtered into the MSM in their apologizing for left wing violence and calling for violence against those opposed to despotic identity politics – they encourage a political pogrom.

This is why you are under attack – for being a media witness to an event the MSM wanted to spin a inverted political narrative for – they can’t – you were there, you can call the spinners liars with irrefutable credibility. So they attack the messenger because they can’t attack the message.

Faith, you needn’t explain yourself, or motivations to slanderers and those who make criminal threats. Slander , as Stephan Molyneux is want to say, is “not an argument”. Blood libel and slanderous accusation are crimes, not reason – so reasoning is wasted on sociopaths.

If you feel you have to explain your actions to partisan politicians who wade chest deep in hypocrisy and ethical compromise daily, please don’t lower yourself to acknowledge them as having moral authority to question your motives – politicians are among the worst people in our society, fanatic partisan politics is a pathological disorder – don’t play to it. I figure if the Rebel has fanatic partisans, regressive authoritarian leftists, dissolute political fringe pressure groups, degenerate trolls, and violent/criminal nihilists frothing over your destruction, I think you must be doing something right and providing a valuable public service as an obverse voice to the lapdog media who the fanatics, sociopaths, political gangsters and degenerate extremists silenced decades ago.

Terry: Your question implies that you deny the main demo was a Neo-Nazi-KKK jamboree. There is plenty of videos, especially of the torch parade, that prove the political orientation of this crowd beyond doubt – unless you’re wearing the same “magic glasses” as Faith.
So she is basically saying “I went to a Klan-bake and I thought there were grounds to engage in conversation.” Really. She references Spencer’s Charlottesville Statement like it’s the Magna Carta. Read it! It’s Nazi trash talk (complete environmentalist clap-trap). It begins by stressing how “race” is synonymous with “identity.” Ring any bells?
Antifa, being the real, modern neo-fascists, operate with tacit police and oligarchic support. BLM are racist provocateurs. The clowns of Charlottesville are merely the hate-filled goons that bit the bait.

Ayan Ray YAWN!!! Whatever.

The rise of extremism from white people was to be expected. You cannot hammer on the heads of a class of citizens non-stop while covering up the violence of another group without consequences. What is happening is the direct result of forced multiculturalism on the West, political correctness and cultural marxism. The media, politicians and so on have created a monster on the Left, who will not hesitate to burn down their houses at one point.

What happens next?

War is coming. Be ready.

Jimmy Reece: You conveniently left out the part about Brian saying he does not believe that anyone at the rebel is a racist or white supremacist and I am not surprised in this climate of such one sided reporting that many are running for cover. The left has cleverly been making moves to consolidate its stranglehold on the media and can make or break anyone who won’t be their lapdog. If anything I can thank the rebel for it is making me aware of how much the left owns the microphone and are willing to destroy anyone who challenges their grip on power. I am also increasingly aware that the left has been I bed with radicals for a long time and are willing to use them and could care less if a few heads get busted in the process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUPARhpjiEg

William; These police Intel reports aren’t by any chance from the same police that allowed this shitshow to happen? She showed a lot of footage and wasn’t hiding anything. To suggest that she’s complicit is tells me more about you than Faith.
commented 2017-08-15 01:11:37 -0400
Thanks for Brian and his contribution to Rebel land.
I will however continue to support the Rebel media..
commented 2017-08-15 01:05:49 -0400
Do you know what happens when someone decides to counter protest? They intend to pick a fight. The police carry a lot of resonsibilty for what resulted in addition to the alt-left who decided to pick a fight. That doesn’t mean I agree with someone mowing down a crowd with a car.
Thanks Faith.

She’s in trouble and she’s not letting go. Police intel reports from Charlottesville estimate up to 500 Klansmen at the rally. David Duke was invited and spoke. The tiki torch paraders belted out one Nazi slogan after another. Her reporting of the next day and her talk just now does not mention any of this. Alt-Right schmalt-Right – this was a flat-out Neo-Nazi rally- why can’t she say that? To say a “handful of idiots with swastikas” deliberately and dishonestly gives the impression that such people were a fringe minority of those assembled.
Yes, they too have the right to speak and to assemble but her reportage DID evince sympathy for them and she continues to PROTECT them by not calling them out for who they obviously are.
It’s bye-bye time.

Brian Lilly leaving The Rebel reinforces my point that the The Rebel is extreme right, bigoted, racist and batshit crazy – spewing hate, propaganda, fear mongering and laughable conspiracy theories that all lack logic and reason.

That is not what Brian wanted The Rebel to be when he started it with Ezra, but that is exactly what The Rebel is and he can’t take it anymore.

He has my respect for getting off his ship and no longer wanting to be associated with this shit show of a website.

Glenn Craig; I will miss Brian. He was good at his craft and I feel bad for him high tailing it. But I guess the seperation has begun. Let the chaff be scattered.

AYAN RAY
“Johnston was recently charged under Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code because he is promoting hatred and advocating violence, NOT because he is criticizing Islam.”

And so why aren’t the Imams in Canada who do the something against Jews and Kaffirs charged?

You are a great apologist for Islam, Ayan. I’m sure your reward will be great.

So where …pray tell…will Brian Lilly get a platform in order to fill his rice bowl? Does he honestly think that not sticking to his guns will oblige the people he previously pissed off to embrace him and take him in? No….it is the conservatives who are the redemptionists…it is conservatives who kill the fatted calf in celebration of the prodical son’s homecoming. Leftists are a ruthless “take no prisoners” use him as a “poster child” and a “for instance” lot.

Oh Brian…what have you done….did you honestly think that they were accomodating of deserters and those who surrender?

Something is fishy here, Jason Kessler, the organizer of Charlotte rally was an Obama supporter and a part of Occupy. He says he reformed! It is getting smelly. Doesn’t excuse what happened but there is stink behind this, who is surprised.

The antifa tactics are straight out of their european warfare playbook.
Over there they have disrupted every peaceful demonstration for the last 40 years with violence.
No one but them are the real modern day fascist Churchill warned us about.
