Antifa Terrorists Launch Unprovoked Attack On White Nationalist Economic Summit Meeting In Tinley Park, Illinois Under Cover Of Anti-NATO Protests


As many as 30 anti-racist terrorists invaded a restaurant in Tinley Park, Illinois on May 19th, 2012 and launched a completely unprovoked physical assault on at least 20 White nationalists gathered for an economic summit. The Chicago Sun-Times provides a somewhat sketchy mainstream media report (http://www.suntimes.com/photos/galleries/12640681-417/suspects-wielding-hammers-and-batons-attack-diners-at-tinley-park-restaurant.html), but the Tinley Park Patch (http://tinleypark.patch.com/articles/black-hooded-group-attacks-patrons-with-bats-at-tinely-park-restaurant) and the antifas themselves provide much more information on the South Side ARA blog (http://www.southsideara.blogspot.com/2012/05/5th-annual-white-nationalist-economic.html). There's also discussion on Stormfront (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t888241/).

The number of antifas was set at 18 by the Sun-Times (http://www.suntimes.com/photos/galleries/12640681-417/suspects-wielding-hammers-and-batons-attack-diners-at-tinley-park-restaurant.html) and 30 by ARA themselves (http://www.southsideara.blogspot.com/2012/05/5th-annual-white-nationalist-economic.html). In any event, the antifas had learned of the event in advance, monitored posts on Stormfront to determine the timing and location, and then invaded the Ashford House located at 7959 W. 159th St in Tinley Park around 12:45 P.M. where 20 White nationalists were gathered for the 5th annual White Nationalist Economic Summit (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t877334/) and Illinois White Nationalist Meet-and-Greet. It was a rare display of White organizational unity, as members and supporters of the Council of Conservative Citizens, the American Third Position Party, and the National Socialist Movement were represented. The antifa, all wearing black jackets, hoods and masks, and wielding metal batons and hammers, attacked the White nationalists without warning; ten nationalists were hurt, and three of them required hospitalization. One of the nationalists, Brandon Spiller, received a head wound requiring eight staples to close.

Mike Winston, the owner of the Ashford House, said that the antifas did extensive damage to the restaurant itself. He added that he chased after one of the attackers and had him on the ground, but then five more attackers got out of a car and started kicking the crap out of him. He suffered bruises but required no hospitalization.

Because progressives and Communists have been targeting the NATO summit in the Chicago area this weekend, police were already on alert. They reportedly have arrested five of the antifa, all of who are identified as white. Over 1,000 protesters flooded the streets of Chicago protesting the NATO summit (http://rt.com/usa/news/chicago-protests-nato-summit-689/), and 500 marched on the home of Mayor Emmanuel Rahm on May 19th.

If the anitfas expected to generate public support, they failed miserably. Most of the 135 comments posted to The Patch (http://tinleypark.patch.com/articles/black-hooded-group-attacks-patrons-with-bats-at-tinely-park-restaurant) indicate disapproval; many look upon the attack as justification to pass stronger CCW and Stand Your Ground laws. Brandon Spiller himself wrote (http://oaklawn.patch.com/articles/black-hooded-group-attacks-patrons-with-bats-at-tinely-park-restaurant#comment_3371626) "I had my gun in my car but couldn't get to it due to Illinois law. If I was able to CCW they would have been stopped and I wouldn't be typing this from the hospital".

This is not the first time that antifa have invaded White nationalist meetings and physically attacked participants. Chicago antifa attacked two previous gatherings involving Holocaust revisionist David Irving in November 2009 (http://antiantifa-usa.blogspot.com/2009/11/8-members-of-chicago-antifa-arrested-at.html) and again in May 2011. Antifa even deliberately attacked a dinner at the NSM Nationals in Trenton, NJ in April 2011 (http://whitereference.blogspot.com/2011/04/national-socialist-movement-holds-rally.html), although the NSM has a reputation for fighting back. Antifa clearly state that they are are committed to shutting down and attacking any racist, nationalist, or fascist organizers or individuals that they encounter -- without qualification. Consequently, defensive security arrangements must be made in advance, and should at the very least include the use of bear spray or ammonia to spray into the eyes of antifa attackers to make it impossible for them to continue an attack. Antifa are beyond reason -- force is the only way to respond to them effectively.

Five Antifa Terrorists From Indiana Formally Charged With Three Major Felonies In Attack Upon Tinsley Park Restaurant

-- Top Row, left to right: Cody Sutherlin, Jason Sutherlin and Dylan Sutherlin, all brothers
-- Bottom Row, left to right: Alex Robert Stuck and John Steve Tucker


Five anti-racist terrorists have been charged (http://whitereference.blogspot.com/2012/05/five-antifa-terrorists-from-indiana.html) with a host of felonies in association with the March 19th, 2012 attack upon 20 white nationalists at the Ashford House Restaurant in Tinsley Park, Illinois. Although South Side ARA initially bragged that 30 antifa participated in the attack, media sources almost universally set the number of attackers at anywhere from 15 to 18 now. But Tinley Park police and the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force are working to identify up to 13 additional individuals who fled the scene.

None of the five are from Illinois, however. The five are identified as John Tucker, 26, of Martinsville, Ind.; Cody Sutherlin, 23, of Bloomington, Ind.; Dylan Sutherlin, 20, and Jason Sutherlin, 33, both of Gosport, Ind.; and Alex Stuck, 22, of Bloomington, Ind. All have been charged with felony mob action, aggravated battery and criminal damage to property. A spokesperson for the Cook County State’s Attorney says more charges may be filed later pending the outcome of the initial investigation. Jason Sutherlin’s bail was set at $250,000 because of a previous felony conviction for a burglary charge. Cody Sutherlin’s bail was set at $200,000 in part because of a previous DUI in Indiana. The bail for the other three was set at $175,000. Cook County Circuit Court Judge Terence B. Smith approved the prosecution's high bail recommendation because the attacks were unprovoked and the perpetrators wore masks; their next court date is June 12th. According to information posted on Stormfront (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t888241-41/#post10271002), mob action is a class 4 felony calling for 1-3 years in prison, while aggravated battery is a class 3 felony with a sentence of anywhere from 2-5 years.

The costs of the attack to the Ashford House are now being tallied. Restaurant owner Mike Winston (http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/05/21/11795654-they-got-walloped-masked-group-attacks-alleged-white-supremacists-in-illinois-restaurant#comments), who was personally attacked by the antifas when he attempted to intervene, has said property damage repairs will cost $10,000 to $15,000, and that it has already cost him additionally in lost business revenue; a party that had booked a wedding shower for Sunday May 20th canceled, while Sunday brunch, which normally packs the place, filled only four tables.

It has also now been revealed that the white nationalist group meeting at the restaurant belonged to the Illinois European Heritage Association, said to be associated with the White News Now (http://www.whitenewsnow.com/american-news-white-america/31596-white-nationalist-meeting-attacked-hoodie-thugs-chicago.html) and Stormfront (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t877334/) discussion forums. NBCChicago identifies one of the Heritage members as Beckie Williams, who was specifically targeted by One People's Project (http://www.onepeoplesproject.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=993:chicago-white-nationalist-economic-summit-smashed-several-of-them-hospitalized&catid=29:antifa-news&Itemid=14). Williams said she doesn't know where the "white supremacist accusations" came from, and added that the Saturday meeting was the first meeting of the group. Some have speculated on this Stormfront thread (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t888241/) that the group might have contained an informant (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t888241-39/#post10270636) who was a pipeline to ARA, since ARA seemed to know when and where everything was going down.

The Chicago Tribune reports (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-five-charged-in-mob-attack-at-tinley-park-restaurant-20120521,0,6533031.story) that two members of the Illinois European Heritage Association were also arrested. Steven Eugene Speers, 33, of Grand Forks, ND, was wanted on a warrant from Dallas County, TX, for possession of child pornography, while Francis John Gilroy Jr., 65, of West Palm Beach, FL, is charged with unlawful possession of weapons by a felon. VNN Forum members (http://www.vnnforum.com/showthread.php?t=141933) are concerned this information may be used to try and demonize the heritage group.

Southside Chicago Anti-Racist Action Exposed



I’m not sure what the “Southside Chicago Anti-Racist Action” antifa were hoping to accomplish in their mob attack in Chicago.

1.) Were they yearning for serious prison time and drawing the attention of law enforcement to their activities?

2.) Were they hoping to invite civil lawsuits?

3.) Were they hoping to impress the general public by attacking restaurant patrons and business owners?

4.) Were they hoping to elicit sympathy for white supremacists?

5.) Were they hoping to polarize the Right against them?

Here are the names of the Southside Anti-Racist Action (http://cofcc.org/2012/05/five-gang-members-charged-in-chicago-attack/) [members arrested] . . . all five of them from Indiana:

“Five Indiana men have been charged with felony mob action, aggravated battery and criminal damage to property for their roles in an attack Saturday on a group dining at a Tinley Park restaurant.

Bails ranging from $175,000 to $250,000 were set for the five men at the Bridgeview courthouse….

Tinley Park Police Chief Steve Neubauer said all five men are charged with aggravated battery, mob action and criminal damage to property. The group includes three brothers, Jason W. Sutherlin, 33, of Gosport, Ind., Cody Lee Edward Sutherlin, 23, of Bloomington, Ind., and Dylan James Sutherlin, 20, of Bloomington, Ind. Alex R. Stuck, 22, of Bloomington, Ind., and James S. Tucker, 26, of Spencer, Ind., are also charged, he said”

Update: OD will publish the names and real world addresses (and use tags to get the information into Google search results) of these thugs if the information is provided.

Update: Indiana Antifa addresses:

Cody L Sutherlin
2447 W Burma Rd Gosport, IN 47433
Age: 18-24

Why are Whigger Nutsionalists such pussies?



Five anti-racist terrorists have been charged...


Why do WN always have to join in with the wormy victim-talk of formerly oppressed minorities and establishment poofters? If these guys were terrorists they'd have barred the exits and burnt the restaurant to the ground, beheading anybody who tried to escape through the windows.

If WN want to meet in budget-eateries to discuss blue-prints for a fantasy-genocide then they ought to at least take two guys wearing bicycle-helmets and matching vests to guard the doors. The article doesn't mention any of the diners invoking Wotan before assaulting the invaders with a halberd. I don't really understand why that didn't happen.

Tinley Park ARA Terrorists Appear In Court In Bridgeview, Illinois; Former Blagojevich Defender Aaron Goldstein Part Of The Defense Team



-- Top Row, left to right: Cody Sutherlin, Jason Sutherlin and Dylan Sutherlin
-- Bottom Row, left to right: Alex Robert Stuck and John Steve Tucker

Five of the ARA activists who launched the terrorist attack on the Illinois European Heritage Association in Tinley Park, Illinois appeared in court on June 12th, 2012. Appearing were Cody Sutherlin, Jason Sutherlin, Dylan Sutherlin, Alex Robert Stuck, and John Steve Tucker, all residents of Indiana. And one of the lawyers on the defense team is the former defender of the now-imprisoned ex-Governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich.

According to the Tinley Park Patch, the original purpose of the hearing was the arraignment of the suspects. During the hearing in Bridgeview, a Cook County assistant state's attorney said a grand jury returned an indictment for the men. Each defendant faces 37 felony counts including armed violence, aggravated battery, property damage and mob action. The prosecutor also said they intend to seek DNA samples from the men to test an axe-like weapon, a hammer, a wooden chair leg, swabs of stains from a sidewalk, clothing, hats and gloves. The arraignment was re-scheduled for June 21st; all five are expected to enter not guilty pleas at that time. All continue to be held in lieu of bail. Each defendant was accompanied by a private attorney by their side, and four of the attorneys said they're representing their clients for free.

The defense attorneys spoke to media after the hearing. Representing Jason Sutherlin is Aaron Goldstein (who also defended former Governor Rod Blagojevich), who implicitly criticized Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez for "representing white supremacists". Representing John Steve Tucker is Stuart Smith, who said he is sympathetic to the anti-racist movement. Representing Cody Sutherlin is James Fennery (may actually be James Fennerty), who said he defended a man on misdemeanor charges that allege he interrupted the Chicago stop on Holocaust Revisionist David Irving’s tour in 2009. And representing Alex Robert Stuck is Larry Jackowiak, who said his firm agreed to take the case for free because it believes in fighting racism. The Tinley Park Patch reports that Stuck is also being defended by Sara Garber.

Apparently the ARA have no problem with the fact that one of their lawyers, Aaron Goldstein, defended one of the most corrupt governors in Illinois history.

In response to a call by ARA for supporters of the Tinley Park Five to "pack" the courtroom, only about a dozen showed up, and one didn't seem too enthusiastic, merely saying "I'm here for the five, but they told me I'm supposed to say no comment". The TinleyPark blog falsely claimed that "white supremacists" threatened to show up and do harm to the antifa; the examples they cite don't support their contention.

Workers World conducted an interview with a representative of the Hoosiers Anti-Racist Movement (HARM), the group with which the Tinley Park Five were affiliated. This interview provides a portal into the twisted, malevolent psyche of the antifa movement. HARM complained about the lack of support from the Southern Poverty Law Center, claiming the SPLC threw them under the bus. HARM also complained about the Chicago Tribune publishing the pictures of the Tinley Park Five in their newspaper.

Discussion thread still running on Stormfront.

Tinley Park ARA Terrorists Accept Plea Deal, Sentenced To As Much As Six Years In Prison


Note: All posts about the Tinley Park attack can be simultaneously displayed through this link, with the most recent post appearing first.

Screenshot of police photos (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-five-charged-in-mob-attack-at-tinley-park-restaurant-20120521,0,6533031.story) of Tinley Park terrorists

-- Top Row, left to right: Cody Sutherlin, Jason Sutherlin and Dylan Sutherlin, all brothers
-- Bottom Row, left to right: Alex Robert Stuck and John Steve Tucker

While it was severely watered down, the victims of the Anti-Racist Action (ARA) terrorist attack upon white racialists meeting at the Ashford House Restaurant in Tinley Park, IL, on May 19th, 2012 did receive some measure of justice on January 4th, 2013. The five perpetrators accepted a plea deal and were sentenced.

Against the advice of their attorneys who believed they could win at trial, the perpetrators, after plea deal negotiations dating back to October (http://tinleypark.patch.com/articles/ashford-house-five-in-talks-for-plea-deal), pleaded guilty to three counts of armed violence Friday in a Bridgeview courtroom. Judge Carmen K. Aguilar handed down the sentences in the attack in which the five men, who were part of a group of an estimated 18 antifa, stormed the restaurant (http://whitereference.blogspot.com/2012/05/antifa-terrorists-launch-unprovoked.html) wearing masks, hoods and gloves with axes and metal batons to assault their victims. In exchange for their pleas, more serious charges of mob action, aggravated battery and criminal damage to property were dropped. The defendants and their sentences, according to the Tinley Park Patch:

-- Cody Sutherlin, 23 - five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections
-- Dylan Sutherlin, 20 - five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections
-- Jason Sutherlin, 33 - six years in the Illinois Department of Corrections
-- John Tucker, 26 - 42 months in the Illinois Department of Corrections
-- Alex Stuck, 22 - 42 months in the Illinois Department of Corrections


All five men have been in custody since the May 19th incident and will receive credit for 233 days time served and will have to pay $587 in court costs. They will also be on parole for two years upon release from prison. With good behavior, they will be eligible for parole after serving 50 percent of their time.

Reaction: Defense attorneys were generally disappointed in the clients' willingness to accept plea deals and praised their clients for their anti-racist activism. Attorney Sara Garber, who represented Alex Stuck, even went so far as to smear the victims, saying "All the Nazis at the restaurant have records, with violent felony backgrounds. They had weapons, guns in their cars." First, the victims weren't "Nazis", and second, only two were established to have criminal records (http://whitereference.blogspot.com/2012/05/five-antifa-terrorists-from-indiana.html). Furthermore, one of those two, Steven Speers, was considered a possible ARA mole (http://whitereference.blogspot.com/2012/05/white-nationalist-victim-steven-speers.html). Brian Barrido, attorney for Dylan Sutherlin, claimed the prosecution was politically motivated, saying that one of the victims injured in the attack was reportedly the brother of a longstanding Cook County official.

One person, Harry Callahan, posted a comment to the Patch (http://orlandpark.patch.com/articles/ashford-house-5-to-plead-guilty-attorney#comment_5947960) claiming that the five assailants had ties to the Occupy movement. "This group has ties to the Occupy group which were in town protesting in Chicago the same W/E they did their attack,and the Occupy group was supported by the Democratic Party and obama,even ms pelosi when to bat for them when they were protesting elsewhere when the police were to harsh on them.= a national news press conference. I happen to be scanning that Saturday when all this took place,and not to much later the TPPD. contacted the FBI WHY? on a disturbance in a local eatery,this incident goes a lot deeper than we are being told".

Efforts to find the remaining 13 perpetrators quickly fizzled after the attack. However, it's believed authorities were satisfied merely with finding five of them. One Stormfront member wrote (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t937129-2/#post10870106) "They were the sacrificial lambs. If they hadn't been caught at/near the scene by the police the investigators would never have attempted to catch them. They could easily have arrested the others. We've seen this before. If a White guy punches a mulatto in a bar and it's found out that he went to a Klan or Nazi rally 15 years ago then they are investigating every White in those groups. These jokers had enough evidence from their facebook accounts to link them to the others but made no efforts". But in general, Stormfronters were pleased (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t937129/) that at least some justice was done. Posters on White News Now (http://www.whitenewsnow.com/american-news-white-america/36336-5-plead-guilty-anti-racist-attack-tinley-park-restaurant.html) expressed similar sentiments.
