The media eye has zeroed in on Jeff Sessions saying “lock her up” at the recent Turning Point USA high school leadership conference on July 24th. These optics focus the narrative on the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's leadership, and thus national electoral personality politics, rather than the fascist base building that is the real Turning Point USA.

On July 8th, Congress took the first steps to make klansmen and neo-nazis a special protected class of citizen with special protection when Congressman Daniel Donovan (R-NY) introduced the “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018.” It is currently in the House Judiciary Committee where it will lanquish while the Democratic Party is done pretending to fight Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

This morning, July 2nd, at 7am a coalition of organizations lead by Mijente Louisville began a blockade of the ICE office at 7th and Broadway in downtown Louisville. The coalition includes Black Lives Matter, Stand up Sunday, SURJ Louisville and Anti-Racist Action Louisville. An Occupy ICE blockade also began two days ago in Atlanta.
Two days after Portland Police provided background support to Department of Homeland Security riot police to dismantle the blockade by the Occupy ICE movement a fascist group marched.
