9 Non-Violent Activists Facing 15 Years in Prison for Causing Minor Inconvenience to Private Prison Executives
Patriot Front is a fascist group. There is no doubt about this despite any attempt to soft sell their ideology. Their printed materials include stickers with a picture of the continental United States and the slogan “Not Stolen. Conquered.” This is not a group that likes genocide a little bit, they revel in it. Here in Columbus OH they have been quietly putting up stickers near several different college campuses over the past couple of months. Around the country they have hung banners with their messages from overpasses for early morning commuters.
“Amazon Ring” is owned by and branded as Amazon but the company had a life of it's own before it's acquisition and re-branding. It has been a local law enforcement favorite. It's partnership with Amazon puts all it's data in the Amazon cloud which was funded with the same money that Jeff Bezos went on to buy the Washington Post with. It provides users with a “Ring Neighbors” app that allows them to gossip about the brown people they see near their white picket fences. What happens with the data flow? The short answer is anything the police and intelligence services want to happen.
Children born 18 years ago this week have lived their whole lives with their country at war. They are old enough to enlist without parental consent and according to CDC birth records there are enough of them, 362,000, to completely replace the active duty component of the Marine Corps, 181,000 twice That number does not account for the United State's leadership of the developed world in infant mortality, which would place the number at 344,000, or not quite enough to double the size of the Marine Corps but still larger than the Air Force.
Do you ever talk to yourself when alone? Mutter “good God” when you read a stunning twist of plot in a book or shout “holy shit!” when you open a bill? Do you swear aloud after an argument on the phone? Have you ever threatened a telemarketer after hanging up? Do you struggle with your private thoughts and discuss them with your loved ones at night as is considered healthy? Do you have friends that you discuss your private thoughts and ideas in your home? Does your subconscious cause you to talk in your sleep? Everyone does one or more of these things.
Sarah Dye is a nazi. She dresses like a new age hippie. She runs an organic sustainable farm. Her web presence is so soft spoken and crunchy I had to wipe the essential oil off my screen. Do not let her sustainable regenerative agriculture front fool you. Sarah Dye is a member of Identity Europa, a violent neo-nazi organization. Fox News 59 of Indianapolis let her slide with calling herself an “Identitarian,” which is the new soft sell buzzword for white nationalist. Online she goes by “Volksmom” and she and her partner, Douglas Mackey run an organic farm called Schooner Creek Farms.
The protest during gallery hop on May 4th was a great many things. It was energetic. It was determined. It was fairly restrained on the part of everyone but the police and a lone lunatic in a track suit and a MAGA hat stumbling around raving about America being great. What it was not, legally or in reality, was a riot. Yet four, and exactly four, demonstrators were charged in order to make it a riot.
Joel Marasco is a white supremacist. There is zero doubt about that. He has been photographed at white supremacist events. He is a member of a white supremacist organization called the Council of Conservative Citizens. These people count South Carolina Church Murderer Dylan Roof as one of their members. He has been sighted by the press at fascist conferences talking with members of every hate group that has recently made a headline.
The United States continues to get it's money's worth from the neo-liberal regime in Ecuador. A $4.2 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (which the United States chairs) has already netted Julian Assange from their embassy in London after the Latin American puppet state retroactively revoked his grants of political asylum and citizenship.
Many people here the word Ku Klux Klan and think of the deep South and unreconstructed neo-confederates riding at night with support from the city fathers and some obese caricature of a sheriff. That image is a convenient alibi of denial for those living in the deep North as Ohio, Indiana and Michigan have always been hotbeds of Klan activity and Dayton has always been a center of white supremacist activity. This is why the so-called Honorable and self-described Sacred Knights of the KKK have chosen to come to Dayton to recruit at a rally at the old courthouse on May 25th 2019.
