I recently did an interview w/ Dean Reiner of the "Up is Down" podcast out of #PDX, and we mostly ended up talking about the little known political philosophy (and secret legal system) called #COMMUNITARIANISM.

spreaker.com/user/downcast/…
Much to my surprise, Dean did a whole 2hr synopsis and overview before he's even published our talk!
It's amazing. It covers how Niki Friedrich Raapana & Nordica Friedrich 1st discovered and started exploring this strange movement... And he drags in clips and other examples from at least a dozen other places.

It’s December 10, and there are only 15 persecuting days left till Christmas!

Today is Human Rights Day, which is ipso facto an act of persecution of Christians. Obviously.

Behind today’s #WarOnChristmasAdventCalendar door, we find:

1950s Billy Graham!

It’s December 11, International Mountain Day, and there are only 14 persecuting days left before Christmas!

What’s behind today’s door in the #WarOnChristmasAdventCalendar?

Why...

It’s...

Wait for it...

Creationist propaganda about Mount St. Helens!

It’s December 12, Constitution Day in Russia and the day of an important election in the UK!

There are only 13 persecuting days till Christmas.

So, what’s behind today’s door in the #WarOnChristmasAdventCalendar?

It’s...

A 6-pack of local #PDX beer!

THREAD: We need your help! An extremist event organized by The Walkaway Campaign (Brandon Straka and Dinesh D'Souza) is scheduled for Tuesday, November 5th, at the Melody Event Center in SE Portland. 1/10 #WalkAwayFromPDX
Over the last week, we’ve repeatedly reached out to the Melody Event Center directly over the phone as well as through email, Instagram, and Facebook. They have made it clear they have no intention of canceling this event. In fact, they hung up on us yesterday. 2/10
This event will be used to unite local, violent far-right activists as well as fascist groups with larger national networks.

This is exacly the type of event that brought us Unite the Right, the infamous 2017 rally that resulted in the murder of Heather Heyer. 3/10

Long thread: some people will think this is a foolish statement but a lot of us here in #PDX understand that we are in the epicenter of street politics in the United States.
There’s many reasons why Portland is so politically charged but it’s history as a white supremacist utopia certainly plays a role.

In the early 90s there was still a substantial amount of neo nazi organizing in Portland, until anti fascists pushed them out of town.

Thread about the increased threat from fascists in #PDX today and in the future. First thing we noticed today joey Gibson and his goons are triggered af
The veneer of “free speech” and whatever other bullshit they hide behind is gone. They are solely looking to fight leftists. Anti leftism is the driving force behind all fascist movements.
They are all shook because they attempted to attack a union hall where a dsa meeting was being held and they got their asses handed to them.

Hey #Portland, it's been almost two weeks since e-scooters hit the streets so we thought it might be a good time to remind you of a few #scootpdx rules of the road.

1: E-scooters must be WALKED on sidewalks. Riding is only allowed in bike and travel lanes.

#pdxtraffic #pdx Please walk your e-scooter on sidewalks. Riding is only allowed in the bicycle and travel lanes.
2: Please wear a helmet while riding when scooting. It's the law.

#scootpdx #pdxtraffic #pdx
3: Please park e-scooters on the sidewalk, by the curb. Don’t block the sidewalk, bike lane, or vehicle lanes.

#scootpdx #pdxtraffic #pdx Please park scooters with care, on the sidewalk, by the curb.

Patriot Prayer is the second main group rallying today in #PDX. Here’s some background on the group and their leader.
Patriot Prayer is a far-right group based in the Pacific Northwest. It has organized a series of protests in established centers of liberal politics, all with the intent of attempting to provoke a violent response from far-left antifascists.
splcenter.org/hatewatch/2018…
The group was founded by Joey Gibson in 2016 to counter allegedly rampant street violence against Trump supporters. Left-wing protesters, Gibson said in a recent speech, “are literally foaming at the mouth with pure hatred toward us, and it is spiritual.”

The two main groups rallying today in #PDX — Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys. Here’s some background on the Proud Boys.
The Proud Boys are an @splcenter-designated hate group established in the midst of the 2016 presidential election by Gavin McInnes, who co-founded VICE, but was removed from the company over a decade ago.
splcenter.org/fighting-hate/…
The Proud Boys are self-described “western chauvinists” who adamantly deny any connection to the racist “alt-right,” insisting they are simply a fraternal group spreading an “anti-political correctness” and “anti-white guilt” agenda. splcenter.org/hatewatch/2017…

This Saturday the alt-right white nationalist Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys will be having a rally in #Portland #Oregon and everyone needs to find a way to show them how unwelcome they are. Several rallies are planned, so you can find the one that speaks to you.
Some are a safe distance away. Rose City Antifa is also at Waterfront Park where Proud Boys & Patriot Prayer are planning their armed rally
With five rally options (at least) to choose from, there is no excuse for #PDX folks to stay home. Show the white nationalists they are not welcome in Portland.

#PDX @portlandmercury #Oregonians - You know, if every one of us who rejects the white supremacist violent thugs like Proud Boys showed up on August 4th instead of relying on Antifa to do our job, we would win
thedailybeast.com/proud-boys-the…
Imagine if the largest number of people ever turn out, imagine if 75,000 like the number who showed up for Obama in 08 showed up. Do you think the Proud Boys would ever come back? No, they wouldn't. We could rid ourselves of this filth with nonviolence if we show up in numbers
I don't want Antifa doing our job. We need to be the ones standing up. We need @tedwheeler, @PortlandChamber @pdxpoliceunion @JwJpdx @SEIULocal503 @Oregon_AFSCME, @ILWULocal5, and all the rest. Every decent Portlander should be there

So unless you're dead inside yourself, the photos of the student walkouts should at the very least trigger a reaction that they are too young to bear the burden of the adults who were charged with their safety.
And of course they're young. But these are the faces of disappointed rage, disbelief and sorrow that the adults in the room were petulant greedy brats.
For myself and many of the adults I know, our kids were among those who walked out; our kids are the same age as the Stoneman Douglas victims, and the Columbine victims, and all the other high school shootings since Columbine.

These are Courtlin Arrington's parents.
