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.

I think the media and people on the Left were jealous. There you were in the thick of it, actually talking about what was happening and who the players were. No other media outlets from Canada were there. There was a torrent of screaming rage and hatred towards you and The Rebel unlike anything I’ve seen before. I followed what happened there, so I know about the bags of urine and feces that Antifa had brought with them, the chemicals they threw that damaged people’s eyes, the rocks, the mace. Yet, not one media outlet that I could find made the slightest mention of any of this. They referred to Antifa and BLM a protesters only, making it appear as if they were mom and pop from down the street. These are the heroes of the Left.

Great job Faith! God bless you for your courage. Your guardian angel was watching over you. Stay safe, the world is becoming more insane by the day!

Rough days ahead. Who is surprised at this attack on the Rebel and Faith specifically. They are threatened and determined to shut down our right to free speech. Strong borders, enforced laws against illegals, and an aversion to hateful ideologies does not make us a racist. I refuse to allow the left to win with this disingenuous narrative. Covering the news with on the scene reporting, has never been used against a reporter before.
I would like to know exactly what they took exception to. I just don’t see it. Faith was just covering events.

Well said Faith and great biblical reference Glenn. After how many years of not condemning the violence of the obtusely intolerant and hateful far left communist Antifa, now the left demands that Trump unconditionally condemn white supremacist groups (which they so confidently and matter-of-factly call hate groups). After orchestrating violence at Trump supporters at his rallies, beating up Trump supporters , and trying to shut down right wing speakers, is it any wonder he included in his condemnation of the Charlottesville tragedy, the violence on ALL SIDES. And yet the immoral MSM pretends they don’t understand. Thanks Faith for defining yourself, you know you were obligated to to that even if the left ignores it. It’s on the record. I pray for the victims of this tragedy as well as their families but I thank the good Lord for protecting you. As someone once said to me, He obviously isn’t finished with you yet. Please don’t ever take that fact lightly.

Ayan and the like are lying bloodsuckers wringing their hands in glee at the death of one of their own. Disgusting vermin.

Crocodile tears? you’re an asshole Ayan. I sure would like to see a link for that paragraph you quoted Ayan, you give links for everything else.

As I said in my first post on this thread, “Rational people know the truth”. Unfortunately Ayan Ray is not a rational person.

“It breaks my heart that a young woman left her house on Saturday morning and will never return.”

Crocodile tears.

“Kevin has been ordered not to publish details relating to the charges, but we did discuss the Canadian government’s crackdown of opinions critical of Islam.”

“And I can’t help but think:

How long until the police come to my house, to handcuff me in front of my wife and kids, for what I say on TV?"

Ezra Levant and the like are not telling the truth and inciting hatred and violence through divisive and biased news coverage.

Ezra Levant and the like won’t tell you what Kevin Johnston said in one of his Freedom Report videos:

“It is time for us to take our masculinity back and beat the living hell out of these [Muslims]. Pin them down on the ground, and beat them until they pass out. And when they’re passed out, you beat them further; and when they’re on the ground passed out, kick them, break a kneecap, break an elbow, press their hands backwards turn their wrists sideways, start breaking these guys down.”

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.

Very well done.

“Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad for great is your reward in Heaven. For so persecuted they the prophets who were before you”

Keep the Faith….;-)

All this is gonna fall on us on the right that are not white supremacist or Nazi’s. The Left is gonna use this as a tool to attack all of us on the right. Even going as far as calling Jews “Nazi’s”. LOL Can you believe that? Watching CNN right now I see the blanket of blame falling on all of us on the right. All of us non racist on the right are going to pay for this. This will be thrown in our face and used against us. Black, White, Jewish, Muslim will not matter now, you (US) will be nothing more then racist of we call ourselves right. This stupid kid driving that car has set us all back.

Excellent video, Faith. I wonder if any of the corporate main stream media types will listen to your truth-to-the-liars speech. I hope so.

Thank you, Faith. Rational people know the truth.
