Meet the girl who filmed new UK free speech hero, “Man With Sign”

Rebel Staff

I met with Lucy Brown, who filmed and uploaded the “Man With Sign” video that just went viral.

Her video shows a lone man in East London, holding up a pro-free speech sign while being surrounded and menaced by masked Antifa thugs.

After posting the footage, Lucy was met with violent threats from Antifa, too, who outed her address and work details in an attempt to silence her.

Having read the comments…WOW…I have come to the conclusion that the person who does the computer/comments stuff for THEREBEL, is in fact responsible for the multiple-comments that have appeared all through THEREBEL’s rise, and the degree of LIKE for the comment is reflected in the number of times it’s replicated. Twice, thrice, four times, not sure about five.
As an example:

Twice.

Of course any sane intelligent person will always go with ‘dialogue’ over violence…but these violent, delusional weirdos aren’t listening, or talking! So I say fight back while we can, chase those violent, bullying scum out of where ever they are rioting and attacking us for speaking, every time…if the cops won’t or can’t do their job. A century and a half or so ago they referred to that as vigilantism – it was needed, and it was a good thing!
Pie in the sky virtue signaling is for the delusional left, it’s time to kick some Antifa butt and give no quarter!
Ok, so you say Antifa, et al, is protected by the state/MSM/police…
Well yes that is a problem…disposing of corrupt politicians (I know, corrupt is redundant) and talking heads I don’t have a problem with. Attacking the police? I have a problem with. The difference being most cops are basically working stiffs like me, politicians…not so much. But, if the police are acting against common sense, reason and moral principles, well I’m afraid, ‘I was just following orders’, will not do, and there are consequences for our decisions and actions…

At 8:20 minutes in Kathleen Wynne shows up with a camera. Now we know for sure something foul is afoot.

You don’t beat bullies by bending down and walking with a sign. You beat them with beating them up. The Americans have started to understand that.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt commented – “I would like to know when the Feral Marxists will be declared a terrorist organization.”

Heck with that, declare feral commies a public pestilence and post bounty. Say, 20 bucks an ear – maybe some old Nam vets will get the twitch to go on recon collecting commie ears again.

Those leftards are using the same tactics as the SA of nazi Germany. Without them, Hitler will not have been possible. There is no way to open discussion with them, since they can’t defend their point of view. They are hateful people for which physical assaults, insults and violence are the only means available and they will increasingly use them. Showing up in front of them with a sign to defend free speech is useless. I have been verbally assaulted yesterday by one of those thugs for being white, french and having parked my car too close to the yellow line. They are ramping up their aggression to that point.

Antifa is a big joke. Do they really think that Nazis are for free speech? Just the opposite is true. They have no credibility with their propensity towards violence and are in fact a terrorist group. A bunch of sniveling cowards that need to hide behind masks to cover their shameful faces. These people are the result of generations of parents that did to many drugs. The same can be said for a lot of the people in California. Totally out of touch with reality and a very small portion of the population that does not speak for everyone. That is why they want to get rid of free speech; so they can mouth off without challenge. However, with no free speech they will have to keep their filthy mouths shut.

The biggest joke of all is that they are using their right to free speech to protest free speech. Either someone is paying them to do this or they are just that stupid (hypocritical at best). Most likely a bit of both. One thing is for certain; they haven’t thought this one out to the end.

Why do Antifa always hide behind masks. It is surly a sign of their true character.

Another reaffirmation that I made the right move quitting twitter years ago – its turned from being an infantile vanity sandbox for narcissists to a rallying point for deranged fascist zombies to run flash mobs. Use Gab and don’t look back.

“you can feel the hatred coming out of these people”.
“if there is no room left for dialog, then what are we? We are just animals.”
