    Jason Kessler is hosting the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, VA on August 12th.

    I’m confident this event will end up being the biggest rally we have held in the United States in over a decade. It will be much bigger than the original event in Charlottesville in May which was kept private. The Alt-Right will be there. Southern Nationalists will be there. White Nationalists will be there. The Alt-Lite was invited to come, but predictably backed out over race.

    I’ve been doing activism in the South for several years now. I usually have a feel for how many people will show up at these events, but I have never seen so much interest in one event. I’m going to have to rent a van because I have six people who want to ride with me alone. I know this event is going to be a big deal because people who I consider leaners have booked non-refundable flights and there will be convoys coming to Charlottesville from far flung states like Texas and Florida.

    I’m telling you to trust me on this one. You do not want to miss this event. If you have ever wanted to attend a pro-White or pro-South event, this is the one to go to. I think Charlottesville has the potential to be a breakthrough moment in our activism. There is so much energy which has been bottled up online over the past 15 years that the dam is close to breaking. It is only a matter of time before it finally spills over into the real world and we are getting very close to that point.

    We’re still a month out from the Unite The Right rally. The only question at this point is how much we can swell the size of this event. We have over a month to get the word out. This should be plenty of time to take off work, make travel arrangements, find someone to carpool with, etc. We need you to share these flyers on Facebook and Twitter to create as much buzz as possible. If you are planning to come, work on bringing another person who wouldn’t ordinarily come to an event.

    Note: If you want to get a League of the South polo shirt, you can order one at Patriotic Flags. We’re going to be in Charlottesville in force with black polos and the Confederate Battle Flag.

    Default Charlottesville Leaders Ask Kessler to Move Unite the Right Rally

    Charlottesville Leaders Ask Kessler to Move Unite the Right Rally

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - City leaders and police officers are bracing for the controversial rally set for Saturday at Emancipation Park.

    Officials held a press conference Monday, Aug. 7, to discuss the upcoming "Unite the Right" rally. The press conference began around 3:40 p.m., and wrapped up before 4 p.m. Officials did not take any questions from the press.

    Authorities have been trying to negotiate with self-described white-activist Jason Kessler to move his rally to a different location.

    Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones said during the press conference that Kessler can have his event, but that it must be held in McIntire Park. The city wants to move the rally for safety and logistical reasons, but Kessler is so far refusing to make the change.

    "They don't have a legal right to deny us our ability to express support for the monument, in front of the monument as the permit said, " Kessler said.

    "The city has serious concerns about ensuring the safety of the expected demonstrators in the park, expected counter demonstrators in the public, and to protect against public and private property damage among other concerns," said Jones.

    "Government has no more central role than protecting life and property. Given the sheer numbers projected, the city manager is right to conclude that this event is incompatible with the dense and urban location of emancipation park which is right next to our Downtown Mall, Mayor Mike Signer said.

    "I expect Mr. Kessler to cooperate with us by holding his event at the approved venue. Having a demonstration at McIntire Park is safer because the park is large enough to accommodate the size of the anticipated crowd," Chief Al Thomas of Charlottesville police said.

    Kessler has said that he expects hundreds of people to rally in support of the statue of Confederate Army General Robert E. Lee at the park. The rally is scheduled for noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, and is to include speakers and leaders of the alt-right movement.

    Earlier this year, Charlottesville City Council voted unanimously to rename Lee Park. It was later decided by City Council to have the new name be Emancipation Park. A majority of councilors also voted in favor of removing the Lee statue.

    "We will be there in Lee [sic] Park on August 12th no matter what," he said.

    Police believe the total attendance will be in the thousands, but that includes protesters and onlookers.

    "Having the demonstration at McIntire Park is safer because the park is large enough to accommodate the size of the anticipated crowd. It also avoids a situation by which overflow crowds spill into the streets as would likely occur at Emancipation Park," said Thomas.

    "Their grounds that the numbers are more than they expect are very specious as far as what they say our numbers will be. They had a meeting with me this morning where they had a lot of false statistics," Kessler said.

    Kessler claims he will sue the city for demanding the move.

    "They don't have a legal right to deny us our ability to express support for the monument, in front of the monument as the permit said," Kessler said. "We are going to challenge this in court., we are going to sue the city of Charlottesville."

    NBC29 legal analyst Lloyd Snook says the city cannot regulate the content of a demonstration but can regulate time and place.

    "For example you can tell somebody at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 , here is your designated free speech zone, say whatever you're going to say, but its going to be there ... there is some power to say that the government can say where its going to happen," Snook said.

    Kessler could sue the city, but he would have to do it quickly.

    "Obviously its going to be pretty tough to get a lawsuit filed and everything and heard before Saturday," Snook said.

    The Downtown Business Association of Charlottesville released a statement following the press conference, praising Jones' announcement:

    This decision protects the safety of the community as well as downtown properties due to the anticipated increase in the size of the crowd.
    It is unclear at this time how the Charlottesville Police Department will stop people from rallying at Emancipation Park Saturday.

    A city spokesperson said planning details are forthcoming.

    Default Opinion/Commentary: Examining Confederate monuments, from many sides

    Opinion/Commentary: Examining Confederate monuments, from many sides

    A. Barton Hinkle Aug 6, 2017

    http://christian-identity.net/forum/...6822#post16822
    http://whitenationalist.org/forum/sh...6822#post16822


    Some years ago, a friend who had a job at one company (let’s call it Acme) and had been offered a job at another (call it Zeta) asked for some thoughts on whether he should take the offer. He wasn’t thrilled with his current job, but he was uneasy about doing something different.

    We batted around pros and cons for a while. Eventually, I asked him to look at the question from the other end: Would he leave the job at Zeta to take the job he currently had at Acme? He needed little time to say no — which helped him decide what he should do.

    Maybe this is how Richmond and cities like it should approach the question of what to do with Confederate monuments. Instead of asking what should be done with the monuments already in place, suppose we consider the counterfactual. If Richmond had no monuments to Confederate leaders now, would it decide to erect some? For that matter, would it add now to the Confederate monuments it already has?

    The question might help clarify the deliberations of the Monument Avenue Commission. Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney has suggested that the city keep the monuments to Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Jefferson Davis, J.E.B. Stuart, and Matthew Fontaine Maury, but add context to them.

    This is an eminently sensible approach: Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy, after all, and men such as Lee and Jackson stand out as historical giants. As a Times-Dispatch editorial put it in March, adding historical markers could “make clear that history is complex: Good — even great — individuals still can do things that are wrong, and in fact terrible, even though many thought they were doing what was right at the time.”

    On the other hand, whatever the personal motives of Confederate leaders and soldiers might have been, there is no denying that what they fought for was, in a word, evil. They fought to defend a new country predicated on one issue above all else: slavery.

    Anyone who doubts that need only look up the Articles of Secession approved by Southern states, which mention slavery and abolition dozens of times. South Carolina, for example, complained of “an increasing hostility on the part of the non-slaveholding States to the institution of slavery.” Texas cited the North’s “hostility to these Southern States and their beneficent and patriarchal system of African slavery,” and rejected the “doctrine of equality of all men” as “at war with nature.” And so on, and so on.

    Would Richmond erect monuments to defenders of such a cause today? It seems unlikely. Which suggests taking them down might be the proper course.

    This invites several stock rebuttals, the most common of which is that taking down a statue amounts to erasing history. That’s simply wrong. First, schools would not stop teaching about the Civil War if the statues came down. Second, a monument is not a textbook; its purpose is not to educate, but to honor and to glorify.

    And this is perhaps closer to what defenders of the statues mean by erasure: They are less afraid that the fact of the Civil War no longer will be taught, and more afraid that one particular perspective on it no longer will be. They are not worried about history — but about one particular version of it.


    But the version of history that includes slavery is the more accurate one. And that history is nowhere to be seen on Monument Avenue. For a long time, it was nowhere to be seen in Richmond. Talk about political correctness.

    Political correctness means you are not supposed to say certain things, no matter how true they might be, lest you hurt somebody’s feelings. Which is a pretty good summation of Southern attitudes about the role of slavery in the Civil War.

    Or at least it was a good summation. Lately Richmond has taken a more comprehensive approach to its past: Witness the recent unveiling of a monument to Maggie Walker, an African-American and the first woman to charter a bank in the United States.

    Walker certainly deserves the honor and the glory, and nobody this side of a Klan meeting has any doubts about the propriety of the city raising a public statue to her name.

    How many today would say the city should raise a statue to Lee, or to Davis?

    Default Airbnb just set an important new standard in how tech firms can fight hate.

    Vacancy. No Nazis Allowed. -- Airbnb just set an important new standard in how tech firms can fight hate.

    This weekend, alt-righters and white supremacists will descend upon Charlottesville, Virginia, as they have throughout 2017. But they may find themselves without a place to party.

    That’s thanks to Airbnb, which this week removed users who were using the service to book venues as part of their Unite the Right rally, as Gizmodo first reported. The company learned from some of its users that Unite the Right attendees were organizing logistics on the neo-Nazi website the Daily Storm, which brands itself as “The World’s Most Genocidal Republican Website” and has a poster for the event on its front page that urges visitors to join the rally “to end Jewish influence in America.” Once Airbnb confirmed that some rally-goers had used the platform to book listings for events associated with the anti-Semitic rally, the home-share site decided to boot those users’ accounts.

    This wasn’t just an easy and correct call for Airbnb. It was also an example of how a platform company can actually make judgments about what is and is not an acceptable behavior, rather than simply waving away controversies by claiming it offers a mere tool for its users. That’s something that many deep-pocketed Silicon Valley firms can’t seem to figure out—and an area in which, until recently, Airbnb struggled, too.

    In this case, the problem that Airbnb had on its hands was clear-cut.

    “We’ve taken over all of the large AirBnbs in a particular area,” wrote a user named SCnazi on a Daily Storm message board. “So far, we’re close to filling our 7th house. We have 80-90 people, and are a mix of various AltRight groups.”
    SCnazi continued: “We've set up ‘Nazi Uber’ and the ‘Hate Van’ to help in moving our people around as needed, esp. between our off-site locations and Charlottesville.”

    Airbnb said it booted a number of rally attendees because they “would be pursuing behavior on the platform that would be antithetical” to the community policy,” which requires “those who are members of the Airbnb community accept people regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age.”

    Not all tech companies have been as swift to act in similar circumstances. Like Facebook, which following the June terrorist attack in London allowed a post by Republican Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins that called for the hunting and murdering of “radicalized” Muslim suspects to remain online. Yet a status update made in May by DiDi Delgado, a Black Lives Matter activist, that said “all white people” are racist—an extreme argument to some, but not one that called for violence—was removed and her account was suspended for seven days.

    And then there’s Twitter, where the alt-right has thrived, using the social media site to broadcast outright hate speech and harass people off the platform. Twitter routinely flounders when asked by its users to help protect them. Last year, actress Leslie Jones was driven off the platform after being barraged by racist tweets and inaction from Twitter in stopping it. Jones’ bad experience made headlines because of her celebrity and the involvement of Milo Yiannopoulos. But as almost any Jewish journalist who has ever written critically about Trump or any woman who has ever railed about systemic sexism can attest, harassment on the network is very real—and frequently goes unaddressed by Twitter.

    https://twitter.com/Lesdoggg/status/...169728/photo/1
    .

    Airbnb’s decision to not allow its community to be an organizing tool for a white supremacist gathering is an example of a tech company taking its commitment to community safety seriously. It’s also an example of a company maturing and learning.

    In April, Dyne Suh—a woman who booked a cabin in California on Airbnb—was alerted only minutes before arriving that her reservation was canceled after the host sent a text message that read: “I wouldn’t rent to u if you were the last person on earth. One word says it all. Asian.”

    Last year the hashtag #AirBnbWhileBlack proliferated on Twitter as a place for black users to recount their experiences being denied places to stay even when the listings were marked as open. Quirtina Crittenden, who started the hashtag after being routinely rejected by users with open listings, said that when she changed her photo to a generic city skyline and her name to Tina, she had no problem booking a place to stay.

    While these incidents reflect racism on the part of Airbnb hosts and not values the company embraces, Airbnb decided that it had a serious role to play in making sure its service wasn’t a place that fostered discrimination. In April, the company entered into an agreement with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing that would allow the regulatory agency to perform racial discrimination audits for hosts who have three or more listings on the site, which the state has long conducted of landlords to ensure that fair-housing laws are upheld. Because of that agreement, the woman who rejected Suh because of her race is now required by the state to pay $5,000 and take a college-level Asian American studies course, as well as agree to comply with the state’s fair-housing laws. Airbnb’s latest move demonstrates the company is willing to act proactively—as opposed to, say, waiting for one of the partygoers to hang an anti-Semitic banner on the front of the house they booked.

    More frequently, platforms only respond to such incidents when someone gets hurt or a news outlet embarrasses the company after a major misstep. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg initially refused to acknowledge that Facebook had a fake-news problem that was causing misinformation to circulate and potentially even influence voters, calling it “a pretty crazy idea” in November after Trump won. Now his company has “disputed” tags and has teamed up with fact-checking organizations to help combat the spread of misinformation. (Its latest effort, “Related Articles,” may end up being the most successful yet at tackling falsified articles on the network.)

    Of course, social media websites designed for free-flowing communication are much harder to moderate than a website with a focus as narrow as home-stays. But those sites can still follow Airbnb’s lead: When people in your community complain, you need to investigate and take action. That means not being afraid of pissing off thousands of people who use their platforms to share hate speech—which, yes, sometimes bleed into broader accusations of partisan bias, which social media sites are particularly loathe to incur. In an industry where losing users means losing money, booting anyone is a big deal, but it can also send a big message.

    Zuckerberg said in May that Facebook was dealing with its content moderation dilemma by hiring 3,000 more people to work on the issue. But adding thousands of more staff to deal with the problem is unlikely to change a thing if Facebook refuses to make a clear commitment to protect its users first and foremost. That means meeting with groups representing people who have been adversely affected by the Facebook’s current content moderation strategy to get a clear understanding how the platform isn’t working for everyone. But that’s not happening. In January, a coalition of 77 civil rights groups wrote a letter to Facebook requesting a meeting to address what the organizers called the “disproportionate censorship of Facebook users of color.” Facebook declined.

    Twitter, for its part, says it’s trying to curb harassment. Last month, the company reported that it’s “taking action on 10x the number of abusive accounts every day compared to the same time last year” and now works to “limit account functionality or place suspensions on thousands more abusive accounts each day.” But that’s based on internal data, and whether or not those fixes are truly meaningful depends on how many accounts it censured before. Still, something is better than nothing, even if it has taken years for Twitter to step up.

    While Airbnb did the right thing in this case, monitoring situations on a case-by-case basis is unlikely to be very effective. Its platform is run on software that can book reservations much, much faster than a human can erase them. And that means that the company might need to use software to monitor for and flag bigoted interactions on the site. For example, if a black user is repeated being denied booking requests that are otherwise open, technology could flag that.

    There are serious limits to policing hateful activities. It’s nearly impossible to read a person’s intentions; we also probably wouldn’t want Airbnb to wade into political stances that don’t involve outright hatred and calls for violence. Which is why having a clear, easy way for people to report problems they are experiencing, as well as a commitment to quickly investigate and act appropriately, is important, too.

    And if the racists, sexists, and anti-Semites gathering in Charlottesville don’t like it, they can go make their own Airbnb. It’s a free country.

    Default Jason Kessler’s Unite the Right Rally Must Move to Different Park, According to Charlottesville Officials

    Jason Kessler’s Unite the Right Rally Must Move to Different Park, According to Charlottesville Officials

    Charlottesville city officials announced yesterday that Saturday’s “Unite the Right” rally must be relocated from Emancipation Park (renamed from Lee Park) to McIntire Park over concerns about public safety in order to obtain a demonstration permit.

    Responsibility for the late change rests solely at the feet of Jason Kessler, the event’s primary organizer, who failed to accurately disclose the number of attendees expected at the rally, despite months of zealous recruitment and non-stop advertisement from dozens of the far-right’s most prominent leaders.

    As of this morning, 675 people indicate that they will attend on Facebook, with more than 1,000 more interested in the event. Given the level of coordination among the event’s organizers, a much larger crowd is expected.

    A large contingent of counter-protestors is also expected to be present.

    “Government has no more central role than protecting life and property,” Mayor Mike Signer said at a press conference Monday. “Given the sheer numbers projected, the city manager is right to conclude that this event is incompatible with the dense and urban location of Emancipation Park.”

    Nonetheless, in a live stream via Periscope following the press conference yesterday afternoon, Kessler told his devotees, “There is no way we’re going to move that demonstration out of Lee Park.”

    “[The Robert E. Lee Statue in Emancipation Park] is the first and foremost reason that we’re having this rally, is for that park and for that statue. It’s about white genocide. It’s about the replacement of our people, culturally and ethnically. And that statue is the focal point of everything.”

    Kessler goes on to claim that the city canceled the permit because attendance at the rally is expected to surpass 1,000 people, despite a permit application claiming 400. This indicates that Kessler may have known for some time, given the fervor and enthusiasm on social media, that the rally’s future could be jeopardized due to his planning failures.

    After the press conference, Kessler indicated that he plans to sue the city of Charlottesville, but he may have a tough case to make.

    “They don’t have a legal right to deny us our ability to express support for the monument, in front of the monument as the permit said. We are going to challenge this in court. We are going to sue the city of Charlottesville.”

    It won’t be the first time that a cancelation has led to a lawsuit either, if Kessler follows through. In April, Cameron Padgett successfully sued Auburn University over its cancelation of an event that he organized featuring Richard Spencer.

    The Berkeley College Republicans and the Young America’s Foundation also filed a lawsuit in April over an event at UC Berkeley featuring Ann Coulter, which was canceled over safety concerns.

    Unlike Auburn, Berkeley offered an alternative date and venue to mitigate those concerns, although Coulter declined to reschedule the event.

    The late change in Charlottesville has clearly escalated tensions. A Facebook post from Chris Cantwell, a scheduled speaker at the event, warns participants, “The potential for violence is greater now that the municipal government is working against us, and I only want combat capable men there.”

    City officials appear to bracing for insubordination from the right.

    “We would like to work cooperatively with Mr. Kessler to give him an opportunity to hold his demonstration in McIntire Park,” read a statement from the City of Charlottesville. “However, if people show up at Emancipation Park, the City will take actions deemed necessary to keep the community safe while honoring everyone’s freedom of speech and assembly.”

    Default Legal groups: City’s decision on rally violates rights

    Legal groups: City’s decision on rally violates rights

    Updated at 7:55 p.m.

    The Albemarle County-based Rutherford Institute and the Virginia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union are demanding that the city of Charlottesville give pro-white activist Jason Kessler permission to hold his Unite the Right rally in Emancipation Park as originally planned.

    In a letter sent Tuesday, the organizations warned that the city’s decision Monday to only approve Kessler’s permit if the event is moved to McIntire Park is a violation of his free speech rights.

    Charlottesville officials cited safety concerns in their decision.

    If the city doesn’t grant the permit as originally requested, the organizations indicated that they might pursue legal action. They gave the city 24 hours to assure Kessler that the rally could proceed as planned.

    The letter was signed by Claire Guthrie Gastañaga, executive director of ACLU Foundation of Virginia and John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute.

    City officials confirmed that they received the letter but declined comment until they could review it.

    Kessler said Monday that he won’t accept the condition because McIntire Park lacks the symbolism provided by the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee statue that has stood in Emancipation Park — known until recently as Lee Park — since the 1920s.

    The organizations claim the city’s decision is unconstitutional because, “opposition can be no basis for government action that would suppress the First Amendment rights of demonstrators, no matter how distasteful those views may be.”

    “At the very least, the city must explain in more than just generalities its reasons for concluding that the demonstration cannot safely be held in Emancipation Park,” the letter states.

    The letter said the city must give Kessler a chance to answer the city’s concerns.

    “Otherwise, it appears that the city’s revocation of the permit is based only upon public opposition to the message of the demonstration, which would constitute a violation of the organizers’ fundamental First Amendment rights.”

    The city’s decision came after officials worried that multiple planned protests and thousands of protesters vehemently opposed to each other, all crammed into a four-block area downtown, could prove a safety issue.

    Saturday’s rally, scheduled for noon to 5 p.m., is expected to be attended by members of the National Socialist Movement, the pro-secessionist League of the South and hundreds of their allies in the Nationalist Front and “alt-right” movement.

    The alt-right groups have indicated that they will have as many as a thousand protesters at the park.

    Local chapters of Showing Up for Racial Justice and Black Lives Matter posted calls on social media for others to join them in counter-protest. Congregate Charlottesville, a multi-denominational clergy group, made a call for 1,000 clergy, especially white clergy, to attend the rally in protest.

    Officials have declined to release a crowd estimate, but figures bandied about range from 2,000 to 8,000.

    Other First Amendment experts say the city has the right to protect public safety by restricting the rally’s location.

    Local attorney Lloyd Snook said the city could look to the history of the organizations taking out the permit as reasons for relocation or even denial of a permit.

    “The city is certainly able to make its own determination that the alt-right events tend to have violence that is not issued on them by others,” he said. “If someone is standing there about to light a bomb, you don’t have to wait until the bomb goes off to declare a safety issue.”

    Snook said federal courts have backed the use of restrictive free speech zones at various events when local officials have a concern for public safety. Such a zone was created at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston when officials restricted demonstrations to a wire enclosure topped by razor wire outside the convention that effectively separated protesters from convention delegates.

    Free speech zones were utilized at the national level during the administrations of President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. Congress passed a law that was signed by Obama in 2012 to give the Secret Service more authority to restrict speech and make arrests.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that governments may restrict time, place and manner of demonstrations. Those restrictions, however, must be neutral with respect to content, narrowly drawn, serve a significant government interest and leave open alternative channels of communication.

    “The court basically said that as long as the reason for the relocation didn’t have anything to do with the content, it was acceptable,” Snook said.

    Clayton N. Hansen, executive director of Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, said the city’s reasons for changing the venue “appear to be content neutral.” He said the move to McIntire “ultimately facilitates more speech than would have been possible” at Emancipation Park.

    “Most important, at least from a free speech standpoint, is the fact that moving the rally in no way forecloses any protected expression,” Hansen said. “Furthermore, there’s no concern about the so-called heckler’s veto, where hostile audiences act to shut down protected speech. Mr. Kessler and the other speakers at Unite the Right will be allowed to say whatever they want to.”

    The ACLU and The Rutherford Institute think otherwise. They argue that if the city relocates the rally because of the number of counter-protesters expected, it would effectively be a heckler’s veto.

    “Any decision that the demonstration under the permit poses a threat to public safety should be based solely on the plans and actions of the Unite the Right organizers, not of those who plan to be present in opposition,” the organizations’ leaders wrote. “Otherwise, hecklers and counter-demonstrators could always shut down speech they disagree with by manufacturing threats to public safety.”
