    Default SW MO Democrats: Mr. President, use your bully pulpit for good instead of hate

    SW MO Democrats: Mr. President, use your bully pulpit for good instead of hate


    (From Southwest Missouri Democrats)

    The hate-filled demonstrations held yesterday in Charlottesville, Virginia and the subsequent violent acts committed by white supremacists against counter protesters have shocked and saddened us.

    These events should galvanize our nation to action. We cannot let those that salute Nazi and other symbols of racist oppression set our national narrative and we must all condemn racist beliefs. We as Southwest Missouri Democrats agree with the statement made by our MDP Chair, Stephen Webber, “this racist Nazi terrorist ideology cannot be given even the slightest space to exist in American politics.” And we also stand with Senator Claire McCaskill who tweeted, “The hate on display in VA is ugly, and morally repugnant. And it is the essence of anti-American. Shame on them.”

    The hateful rally held in Virginia was coined by it’s organizers as, “Unite the Right.” Instead our nation must be united against racism. This message must be sent unequivocally and without hesitation. Our 45th President’s statement was lacking on both points. To qualify racist violence by tweeting “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides. On many sides.” -@POTUS, President Trump is participating in the worst type of victim blaming. The side that we expect our President to condemn is the side who took the life of 32-year old Heather Heyer in Charlottesville on Saturday. Other Republicans have not hesitated to speak out on this and we hope that they will continue this patriotic stance to raise our public discourse. We hope that these Republican Senators will join our Democratic public servants and organizations in this fight for equality and to raise our level of public discourse. We appreciate the statement of Senator John McCain (R-AZ),

    “White supremacists aren’t patriots, they’re traitors; Americans must unite against hatred & bigotry #Charlottesville” and Senator Hatch (R-UT) re-tweeting Alejandro Alvarez who said,

    “Their tiki torches may be fueled by citronella but their ideas are fueled by hate, & have no place in civil society.” Senator Hach later expounded tweeting, “we should call evil by its name. My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home.” -OJH

    The rally that took place yesterday is a symptom of a hateful undercurrent seething within the citizenry of our nation. This racism has many causes, but we must remember what former MO SOS Jason Kander noted on social media, “No one should forget that the birther movement emboldened white supremacists. Or that it was led by @realDonaldTrump.” Genevieve Williams, MDP Vice Chair added on Twitter, “if you build it (a space for white supremacy in public discourse) they will come (out of the woodwork with tiki torches). #Charolettesville

    Our current President had a roll in feeding this racist undercurrent and it is time for him to own these actions and denounce the results. He is no longer a candidate; he is now our President and Commander in Chief. Once elected to be a public servant, a true leader must work for all citizens, not just his base. Mr. President, we ask you to own your past actions that directly enabled the events of yesterday and to use the “Bully Pulpit” for good instead of for hate.

    Default Joplin area residents lend voices against racism

    Joplin area residents lend voices against racism

    Rally held at Ewert Park



    At the funeral of Heather Heyer, her mother said her daughter’s death at the hands of a white supremacist served to only magnify her daughter’s voice.

    On Friday night, more than 250 people added their voices to Heyer’s in a rally against the racism on display at a Charlottesville, Virginia, protest last Saturday.

    The protest in Charlottesville was held by a variety of white supremacist groups, who did not want the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee removed from a park. The group of white men chanted the Nazi rallying cry of “blood and soil” and yelled “Jews will not replace us.”

    By the end of that day, Heyer, 32, was killed and several were injured when a car rammed into the crowd of counterprotesters. Two Virginia state troopers died in a helicopter crash, as well. The driver of the vehicle, James Alex Fields Jr., who traveled from Ohio to Virginia for the protest, was charged with second-degree murder on Friday.

    According to The Associated Press, Fields, 20, was fascinated by Nazism and Hitler as a Kentucky high school student.

    Watching the white supremacists openly espouse


    RALLY: Approximately 250 attend

    FROM 1A

    their views, Stevie Rose, a Joplin resident, decided to organize a rally against racism in Joplin. Just two weeks after the community came together to mark the emancipation of slaves, Ewert Park was filling up again. This time, those attending sought solace, instead of celebration.

    The diverse crowd brought signs, some of which said, “Standing up for what’s right and civil and kind” and “One race, human race; One blood, human blood.” Rose told the crowd that it shocked her to see white supremacists, including a boy she went to high school with, without robes covering their faces.

    “It shows they no longer feel the need to hide,” Rose said.

    She added that she had desperately wanted to keep politics out of the rally. But for the last week, President Donald Trump has been taking heat for making a comment equivocating the side of the white supremacists with those who came to Charlottesville to oppose them. He added that there were “fine people” among the white supremacy groups.

    Her reasoning as to why she wanted to keep politics out of the rally? There was white supremacy before Trump and there will be more after him, she said.

    Leaders in the Joplin community spoke about their experiences watching the hate in Charlottesville and how the community could move forward.

    Watching white supremacists in Charlottesville brought back memories to Nanda Nunnelly-Sparks, of Joplin, of being beaten and spit on in eighth grade for the color of her skin, she told the crowd.

    “Every time I see that flag, hear those chants, see those hoods, I’m taken back to eighth grade, at a time I was powerless,” Nunnelly- Sparks said.

    At the vigil, Nunnelly- Sparks said she saw candles instead of torches and heard words of kindness, instead of hate.

    “And that my friends gives me power,” Nunnelly- Sparks said, tearfully.

    Paul Teverow, a member of the United Hebrew Congregation, recounted reading about white supremacists doing the Nazi salute of “Sieg Heil” outside of the Charlottesville synagogue.

    “As a Jew, I felt fear, outrage and some confusion,” Teverow said. He added, to laughs, “Because replacing these people (white supremacists) have never been on my list of priorities.”

    The vigil in Joplin was held 30 minutes before their Friday night Sabbath services. Teverow said he was glad he had an opportunity to say “no” to hatred.

    Preston Reynolds, with the Southwest Missouri Green Alliance, urged those in the crowd to have uncomfortable conversations with those who espouse racist views. He also recommended that the alliance donates to organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center that engage in beating back racism.

    “Running and hiding from a problem will never yield a solution,” Reynolds said.

    With candles lit and wax dripping into paper cups or on hands, those gathered at the vigil soared into “Amazing Grace,” the song that former President Barack Obama sang after the Charleston shootings. It was again voiced by thousands at a vigil in Charlottesville after the weekend’s white supremacy protests.

    After the vigil, the crowd marched with their signs and candles out of the park and lined up along Seventh Street. They chanted, “No Nazis, no KKK, no fascist USA.”

    Slade Woodward, 17, of Seneca, said he attended because he wanted to support the cause of equality and peace.

    “There’s a lot of hatred in the world right now,” Woodward said. “The only way to combat that is love and being here.”

    Default Our Post-Charlottesville Narrative Is A National Embarrassment

    Our Post-Charlottesville Narrative Is A National Embarrassment

    Why have the tragic events of Charlottesville transformed so many people into irresponsible, violent, censorious, and hysterical lunatics?


    Pundits, journalists, politicians, clergy, law enforcement, sociologists—all may agree or disagree to varying degrees about what the Charlottesville mayhem of August 12 means for our country. Any number of interpretations could be useful and instructive. But above all Charlottesville has shown just how profoundly broken and destructively useless our media industry and political establishment really are. It is a genuine national embarrassment.

    I do not say that lightly. I love this country; I love its rich history, its political traditions, its culture, its people. I love its religious backbone. I do not love the historical flaws of our country, but I love the ways we have righted them, and the great gifts we have given the world along the way: our priceless treasure trove of abolitionist literature, the Gettysburg Address, Letter From a Birmingham Jail, our brilliant Supreme Court decisions on any number of civil rights.

    I love the United States. But I am deeply embarrassed for it, and I want it to do better than it has over the past few weeks.

    It is not unsurprising that the events of Charlottesville—an awful combination of hatred, racism, toxic politics, paranoid factionalism, and political ineptitude—would stir our emotions and cause some people to do crazy things. But the responses from the media, politicians, countless individuals, and institutions has been nothing short of shamefully disastrous. However painful it may be, we should analyze what has been going on in the days since that terrible afternoon to learn from it and commit ourselves to doing better if and when, God forbid, this happens again.

    The ‘Both Sides’ Hysteria

    Last week I wrote about the media meltdown surrounding Trump’s claim that “there is blame on both sides [for Charlottesville].” That was entirely true: eyewitness testimony, from sources including a New York Times reporter and a student counterprotester, affirm as much. There is simply no question that both white nationalists and leftist “Antifa” protesters both engaged in unjustifiable violence that day.

    Yet here’s a small sampling of the responses to Trump’s accurate statement. Mitt Romney responded by tweeting: “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.” Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat minority leader of the House of Representatives, issued a statement asserting Trump’s “both sides” claim “ignores the abhorrent evil of white supremacism.”

    At The New York Times, Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman claimed that Trump “gave white supremacists an unequivocal boost” by “equating activists protesting racism with the neo-Nazis and white supremacists.” Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine declared on Facebook: “This was not ‘both sides.’ White supremacists descended on Charlottesville to promote hate and intimidate this Virginia community.”

    But it was both sides. That is a fact. Yet these leaders seem willing to excuse political violence simply because it was directed at neo-Nazis. These politicians and journalists appear to be saying violence is okay when it’s committed against people we don’t like. All you have to do is say “There were Nazis!” to justify it.

    This is shameful and humiliating for America: elected officials and members of our press are apparently tacitly advocating mob rule and vicious, primitive might-makes-right public discourse. The world should look at us and laugh for such crude and shocking behavior coming from the nominally elite and educated members of our political and media classes.

    Further Justifying Violence

    The justifications for the violent behavior we saw in Charlottesville did not just stop at such sly, underhanded approvals. Some public figures openly endorsed political violence against their opponents.

    The biggest meme related to this phenomenon rocketed around Twitter like wildfire: people began comparing the violent progressive activists in Charlottesville with the soldiers who stormed the French beaches as part of the Normandy invasion during World War II. CNN contributor and former Hillary Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon, CNN anchor Christopher Cuomo, Atlantic editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg, Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, author David Simon, actor Joshua Malina, and countless others compared the Charlottesville vigilantes to D-Day soldiers.

    It is astonishing that one even has to explain the difference between the two phenomena, but here we go: the Nazis of the Third Reich were part of a brutal war machine that had burned across Western Europe, was threatening the free world, and was fighting for a government that had declared war on the United States. The Charlottesville Nazis, meanwhile—loathsome as they were—were exercising a well-established and perfectly legal constitutional right.

    Might there be a little difference between the two? Might “violence” (i.e. legally authorized military action) be justified against the Nazi war machine, while mob violence from unauthorized citizens might not be so justified against American citizens engaging in constitutionally protected free speech? Might there also be any difference between soldiers acting under legal orders as part of a legally declared war and lawless mobs attacking rally attendees without any grant from any legal authority?

    More generally, people openly advocated that American citizens assault other American citizens: comedian Patton Oswalt, for one, favorably compared the violent activists to movie hero Indiana Jones punching a Nazi, while CNN reporter Jake Tapper wordlessly endorsed violence against neo-Nazi protesters.

    Politicians, journalists, actors, writers, and other media figures openly and gleefully encouraged their fellow citizens to harm each other. This is the stuff of violent hellholes, not the United States of America. Shame on these people for advocating such violence, and shame on everyone who shared such disgusting sentiment.


    America has the greatest free speech regime on the planet. Still, plenty of people in this country would like to see your free speech rights greatly attenuated. In the wake of Charlottesville, many of them spoke out in favor of censorship.

    As CNN reported, the American Civil Liberties Union—a longtime defender of every American’s right to say anything—“took heat” for supporting the free speech rights of the neo-Nazi protesters. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe blamed the ACLU for suing Charlottesville over its handling of the neo-Nazi rally. At The New York Times, a Berkeley instructor, K-Sue Park, claimed that “the ACLU needs to rethink free speech.” In a viral tweet, Virginia ACLU board member Waldo Jaquith resigned in protest over the ACLU defending Nazis’ free speech rights.

    It is astonishing to witness American citizens seizing on the hysteria of a moment to condemn precious American freedoms.

    A protester in Charlottesville, meanwhile, punched a neo-Nazi in the face during a press conference then told The New York Times: “Free speech does not protect hate speech.” So far as I know, that person received no condemnation from anyone for punching a man who was simply speaking at a podium.

    At HuffPO, ACLU member Burce Hartford came out in favor of criminalizing “hate speech,” claiming it has to be “fought and suppressed.” On CNN, attorney and former DC Democratic Party chairman A. Scott Bolden declared “Hate speech is not free speech,” and nobody in the room—not the host, Ana Cabrera, or former South Carolina lieutenant governor Andre Bauer, or presidential historian Douglas Brinkley, or Washington Post journalist David Fahrenthold—pushed back against this destructive and illiterate concept.

    Similarly, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors claimed on MSNBC that “hate speech…is not protected under First Amendment rights.” Skidmore professor Jennifer Delton argued in favor of restricting free speech in the Washington Post, claiming that since we once did it to American communists, we can do it to the alt-right today (seriously).

    It is, frankly, astonishing to witness American citizens seizing on the hysteria of a moment to condemn precious American freedoms. It is a political mercy that we have decades of Supreme Court precedent to stand as a bulwark against these authoritarian impulses. Just the same, who’s to say that these censorious sentiments will not eventually spread even further?

    Generalized Hysteria

    The general atmosphere of hysteria during the post-Charlottesville fallout has been jaw-dropping. Above are excellent examples. Yet what happened last week in Boston is even more so—a case study in the growing delirium taking ahold of American politics, especially progressive politics.

    Activists in Boston organized a free-speech rally to advocate First Amendment rights. It was an event concerned with freedom of expression, nothing more. Indeed, one of the rally’s speakers, Gavin McInnes, affirmed that “The rally on Saturday in Boston couldn’t be farther from the rally [in Charlottesville]…We are socially liberal, fiscal conservatives who think America has a lot to be proud of. . . . We are pro-gay, multicultural, pro-Israel, pro-family and anti-Nazi.”

    One young man follows the Trump supporter around screaming bizarre threats at him:’“I hope you liked having a job. Everyone you have ever known is going to see you.’

    Another organizer of the rally, Louis Sender, said that the purpose of [the rally is] just to do free speech…That’s all it’s ever been.” The organizers even planned to begin the rally with a moment of silence to Heather Heyer, the victim of Charlottesville’s white nationalist terror attack.

    No matter. Boston turned out thousands upon thousands of protesters. Fifteen thousand protesters showed up to rail against the free speech organizers—15,000, in comparison to a few dozen rally attendees. Fearing for their safety, the rally organizers eventually fled Boston Common with a police escort. In a genuinely eerie display of threatening intent, the protesters began to chant: “Make them walk! Make them walk!”

    During the brief rally itself, attendees were subject to vicious verbal and physical abuse. One astonishing video shows a “Trump supporter” walking through Boston Common wrapped in an American flag while the crowd is screaming at him. “Get the f-ck out of our f-ckin’ town!” yells one guy. “F-CKING RACIST!” screams another.

    One young man follows the Trump supporter around screaming bizarre threats at him: “I hope you liked having a job. Everyone you have ever known is going to see you…I will have your identity, and in your name I will be donating to everything you stand against! Thanks for the great picture! Your employers and family are gonna love these shots!”

    When asked, “Why are you here?” the Trump supporter responds: “I want to show that people shouldn’t be afraid to voice their [views] and voice their opinions. You shouldn’t be afraid to go outside and say you’re conservative. It’s pretty sad that things like this happen.” For this, he was slandered, threatened, and harassed.

    All approached the idea of free speech as if it were an alien concept written in an extraterrestrial language.

    Another video shows an older woman holding up an American flag as protesters walk by. Suddenly, a protester grabs the woman’s flag and attempts to pull it out of her hands. The woman does not let go, so the protester drags her and the flag until the woman trips and falls. Later, a few dozen protesters were arrested after violent clashes with police.

    More shameful still was the media’s approach to covering the rally. The organizers of the rally explicitly affirmed that it was an event in support of free speech. Yet major media outlets treated this explanation as if it were a smokescreen, couching the term “free speech” in “scare quotes:” CBS News, NPR, the Washington Post, Slate, the Boston Globe, Reuters, CNBC, USA Today, Politico, Yahoo, the Daily Beast, the New York Daily News, countless others—all approached the idea of free speech as if it were an alien concept written in an extraterrestrial language.

    Some outlets took it to an even more desperately shameful level: the New York Daily News, for instance, claimed that the protesters “chase[d] away white nationalists” without mentioning the rally organizers and speakers who explicitly disavowed white nationalism, while the Chicago Tribune heavily implied that the rally was a white nationalist gathering, with an enormous headline screaming: “Massive counterprotest against white nationalism upstages ‘free speech rally’ in Boston.” What a disgraceful abuse of media power.

    Why Is This Happening, America?

    Why have the tragic events of Charlottesville transformed so many people into irresponsible, violent, censorious, and hysterical lunatics? There are any number of explanations: shallow political opportunism, Selma envy, outrage addiction, low-grade despotic impulses.

    We could easily meet these challenges with calmness, dignity, grace, and careful thought.

    We are a strong country. We have survived much worse than half-bright basement-dwelling Schutzstaffel wannabes and violent leftist activists. We could easily meet these challenges with calmness, dignity, grace, and careful thought. We are simply choosing not to, reaching instead for public lunacy and unhinged mob mentality and widespread intellectual dishonesty.

    We should not do this. We are better than this. We can move forward from Charlottesville without destroying this country’s precious ideals and customs, and without turning on each other with vitriol, hatred, and specious nonsense.

    The politicians, journalists, and media outlets above are betting on you responding to the Charlottesville crisis with anger, irrationality, and unthinking acceptance of the narrative. Do not fall into this trap. You can help reverse this tide before it gets any worse—or you can contribute to it, and by doing so further erode the well-being of this incredible country to which you are heir. Please, for the love of God, make the right choice.

    Default My Legal Situation as of August 22nd 2017

    My Legal Situation as of August 22nd 2017

    by Chris Cantwell, 22 August 2017


    I wasn’t teasing when I said I planned to be in jail by end of day yesterday. I’m just a little bit confused about what’s going on and I’m trying to gather more information. Sadly, the authorities and media have not been particularly helpful. I first heard from a livestreamer that I had a “class 6 felony warrant” for my arrest. The police would not confirm or deny this by phone, which, in combination with other false information (such as the fanatic’s gender), gave me reason to doubt the source. I left VA on the public request from a police spokesperson, but stayed nearby to monitor the situation and make turning myself in easier when the time came.

    I contacted an attorney, but he dropped my case right around the time I read in the Boston Globe that I had two felony charges (one of which is a class 3) for what I presumed was pepper spraying a guy in a brawl at UVA (which the reds started). After a bit of struggle, I did find another suitable attorney who said he would contact the VA authorities on Monday morning to find out the truth. Before he could do that, I got an email from the New York Times saying I had four warrants out for my arrest. My attorney called VA authorities but they wouldn’t tell him anything, which I thought quite odd if they were willing to talk to the media.

    Later I heard a report that I had been arrested, but after further investigation I determined this not to be true.

    Since the VA authorities have proven corrupt, by trying to censor our speech based on content, ignoring a federal court order, and by pushing hundreds of armed white nationalists into a crowd of communist rioters, I doubt both their trustworthiness and their sanity. Since the media obviously got it wrong in reporting my arrest, and their stories differ quite dramatically from the recordings of our interviews, I carry similar doubts about them. Both attorneys I talked to said that I was due all the privileges and immunities of a citizen until I was “served” with a warrant, so I don’t believe I am committing any crime by waiting for more information before I return home or to Virginia. So that is what I am doing right now.

    However, since literally millions of people want to kill me right now, I am keeping a low profile. The phone number widely publicized for me has been so filled up with death threats, that I can no longer sort through all the hate and violence to find worthwhile messages. My attorney has my email address, and he can contact me if the authorities want to relay any information to me. I have no interest in violence or lawbreaking, so if they are interested in speaking with me, I hope they will communicate with him instead of harassing innocent people or wasting taxpayer resources.

    Before you ask, I am not going to publicize my attorney’s name. The VA authorities have this information, so there is no sense in making it public. The last thing anybody needs is for his phones to become clogged with the kind of communist menacing that has made me fearful for my life.

    In the worst case scenario, I imagine the many civil suits being launched will expose some information once subpoenas start flying around. I look forward to this, because my entire existence revolves around telling the truth, fighting corruption, and exchanging ideas. It is quite sad that legal compulsion is necessary to get the VA authorities to pursue the same goals.

    Default Bond denied for Cantwell on Charlottesville charges

    Bond denied for Cantwell on Charlottesville charges

    Posted: 8:40 PM, August 31, 2017
    Updated: 8:40 PM, August 31, 2017


    AHust what one of our captured tards should
    look like: Defiant against ZOG


    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - White nationalist Christopher Charles Cantwell was denied bond Thursday evening, according to WVIR.

    According to the NBC affiliate in Charlottesville, the 36-year-old appeared in Albemarle General District Court, where the judge set the bond at $25,000, but the commonwealth appealed the bond, arguing Cantwell could be a flight risk to the community.

    After what WVIR reports was a long back-and-forth battle between the defense and commonwealth, the judge ruled Cantwell a flight risk because he has no ties to the Virginia area, and his hate speech makes him a threat to others.

    Cantwell is charged with three felonies -- two counts of illegal use of tear gas and other gases and one count of malicious bodily injury -- after the rally at the University of Virginia on Aug. 11.

    Cantwell is being held at Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.
