UPDATE: #AbolishICE organizer who was convicted for sexual abuse of a minor gets 2 1/2 years in prison

Posted on August 1, 2018 in The Extreme Left

We previously reported on the Portland Antifa leader, Micah Rhodes, when he was found guilty of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. According to the Oregonian, after a recent arrest for violating his probation and having contact with minors, Rhodes has now been sentenced to 2 ½-years in prison.

Full story from The Oregonian:

A judge on Tuesday found Portland activist Micah Rhodes violated his probation for sex crimes after he was seen near a 15-year-old boy during the recent ICE encampment. 

“When I sentenced you, I was very clear what I was hoping would happen,” Washington County Circuit Judge Janelle Wipper told Rhodes. “This isn’t what I was hoping for.”

Rhodes, a one-time leader of Portland’s Resistance protest group, was convicted this year of sex abuse for having illicit sexual contact with a 17-year-old girl in Washington County and a 17-year-old boy in Multnomah County. The abuse occurred in 2014 and 2015, and Rhodes was 20 and 21 years old at the time.

Judges in Washington and Multnomah counties sentenced Rhodes to five years of probation despite state sentencing guidelines that direct two to 2 ½-years in prison for the crime. As a condition of his probation, Rhodes, now 24, was ordered to stay away from anyone under 18 years old.

The judge postponed her decision on Rhodes’ penalty for the parole violation until Wednesday after a hearing that lasted nearly three hours. Rhodes’ probation officer recommended 45 days in jail as well as a no-contact order with the minor, a 15-year-old boy.

Washington County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Pulver called three witnesses to the stand: the probation officer, a Portland police officer and an agent with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to corroborate accounts from the probation officer’s report that Rhodes was seen at the protest with a minor.

Protesters staged a five week occupation of ICE’s Southwest Portland headquarters in June and July in response to President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. It ended July 25 as police escorted the remaining protesters out of their tents. 

Pulver displayed photos of Rhodes’ passing by the 15-year-old on a sidewalk and sitting a few people over from him on a step. Another photo puts Rhodes in front of a tent at the ICE occupation designated for children that advertised crafts, bubbles and games.

Rhodes’ attorney, William Redden, argued that Rhodes simply was walking in a public area on a sidewalk at the ICE protest and that there was no evidence that children were in the tent.

“I think that the state is stretching here” and criminalizing political behavior, Redden said.

That sentiment received snaps and sounds of agreement from the gallery, which was filled with about 20 of Rhodes’ supporters. The judge told the people that they would have to leave if they weren’t quiet.

Rhodes has been in the Washington County jail since July 19.

His probation officer found out about the violation through Department of Homeland Security officials, according to her report filed with the court. She documented two instances where Rhodes was alleged to have been around minors.

Paula Fata said she received a call from a Homeland Security inspector June 29 who said he saw Rhodes outside near a camping area where several children were playing at the ICE protest.

When Fata called Rhodes that afternoon about the allegation, Rhodes admitted he was at the protest but denied having contact with children, she said.

“I know my rights,” he said to Fata. “I’m not doing anything illegal,” according to her account.

A different Homeland Security agent sent Fata photos taken July 17 during a rally at the ICE office that showed Rhodes standing 4 feet from a 15-year-old boy.

The report said Rhodes knew the boy and was aware he was a minor.

Rhodes’ attorney said Rhodes has a health condition that prevents him from keeping food down and showed concerned his client isn’t getting proper nutrition in jail.

Redden said Rhodes has been consuming Ensure, a liquid nutritional supplement, while in jail.

Rhodes’ allies have posted on the #OccupyICEPDX Facebook page that he cannot consume food without the use of medical cannabis.

Antifa leader who was convicted for sexual abuse of a minor arrested again

Posted on July 23, 2018 in The Extreme Left

We previously reported on the Portland Antifa leader, Micah Rhodes, when he was found guilty of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. According to the Oregonian, Rhodes has been arrested again for violating the terms of his probation and having contact with minors.

Full story from The Oregonian:

Portland protest leader Micah Rhodes is back in jail on allegations that he violated terms of his probation by having contact with minors.

Rhodes, 24, was ordered to stay away from anyone under 18 years old after he was convicted this year on three counts of second-degree sexual abuse for having illicit sexual contact with a 17-year-old girl in Washington County and a 17-year-old boy in Multnomah County. The sexual abuse occurred in 2014 and 2015, and Rhodes was 20 and 21 years old at the time.

Washington County Circuit Judge Janelle Wipper and Multnomah County Circuit Judge Jerry Hodson decided in separate hearings not to sentence Rhodes to two to 2 ½ -years in prison, as state sentencing guidelines recommended. Instead, the judges ordered five years of probation for Rhodes with a long list of conditions, including that he was forbidden from being around children without the prior permission of his probation officer.

Last Wednesday, Rhodes was arrested and brought to the Multnomah County Detention Center on accusations that he had been in the presence of children. On Thursday, he was transferred to Washington County Jail, where he remains.

He’s scheduled to appear before Wipper on Wednesday. If the judge finds that he violated the terms of his probation, she could choose from a wide range of punishment — running from a verbal reprimand to revoking his probation and sending him to prison for two or more years.

The circumstances of Rhodes’ alleged contact with children are unclear. Court papers don’t offer details. But a YouTube video posted by blogger Robert West on June 22 shows a man who appears to be Rhodes at a protest outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office in Southwest Portland. He is standing on top of a canopy next to the trolley tracks, with dozens of protesters nearby on the ground.

The title of West’s video states that there are children at the protest.

The video appears to be taken after Rhodes was sentenced in May in Washington County but before he was sentenced earlier this month in Multnomah County. At Rhodes’ sentencing hearing in Multnomah County, he said he was committed to following court orders.

“I have atoned for what I’ve done,” Rhodes said. “I’ve acknowledged that I made mistakes. I reported them myself.”

He said he has a new home, a good job and a drive to help people. 

“That’s what’s important to me. It’s the only thing that’s important to me,” Rhodes said.

Rhodes was a leader of the protest group Portland’s Resistance, which rose to prominence after Donald Trump won the presidential election in November 2016. The group helped organize day after day of marches and rallies against Trump.

Before then, Rhodes was part of Portland’s activist scene and a familiar face at Portland City Council meetings. In 2016, he helped stage a camp-out in front of then-Mayor Charlie Hales’ home.

“Abolish ICE” group decapitates Donald Trump effigy

Posted on July 19, 2018 in The Extreme Left

In response to viral images of border detention facilities that were taken during the Obama administration but falsely attributed to Trump, left wing groups of all stripes are now calling for the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). One of the biggest organizations behind this nationwide campaign to Abolish ICE is the Democratic Socialists of America, a far-left political organization whose leadership openly endorses communism.

Since the launch of this campaign, far-left extremist groups have occupied and shut down public roadways, they have doxed and threatened ICE employees and their family members, and they have attacked a GOP Headquarters in Nebraska and vandalized it with “Abolish ICE” graffiti. Continuing this trend of violent rhetoric and actions, the “Abolish ICE PDX” group recently held a mock public execution in which they decapitated an effigy of President Donald Trump using a makeshift guillotine. As we have previously reported, this theme of wishing to publicly execute ideological opponents borrows from the French Revolution and is alarmingly prevalent in far-left circles.

Here is the four minute video of this mock execution:

With each passing day we are witnessing more and more violence from the far-left. Violence that was once opposed by the more mainstream elements of the left is now being ignored and in some instances even encouraged. If you are interested in helping us push back against the far-left and the institutions that empower them, please share this important report and consider joining our Patreon account.

CNN commentator calls cop killer a “freedom fighter”

Posted on July 18, 2018 in The Extreme Left

In 1977 the Black Liberation Army member, Joanne Deborah Chesimard (alias Assata Shakur), was found guilty of first degree murder, assault and battery of a police officer, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault with intent to kill, illegal possession of a weapon, and armed robbery. She later escaped from prison when three members of the Black Liberation Army visiting her drew concealed .45-caliber pistols and a stick of dynamite, seized two guards as hostages, and commandeered a van. Chesimard is now believed to be in Cuba and is on the FBI’s most wanted list.

In a recent Instagram post, CNN commentator, Marc Lamont Hill, referred to her as “one of our most treasured Freedom Fighters“.

Instagram Photo

Hill is not alone in his praise of the convicted murderer and domestic terrorist. Celebrating cop killers has become a common theme on the left.

The Women’s March organization honored her on her birthday and called her a “revolutionary”:

The John Jay College professor and antifa organizer, Mike Isaacson, who was suspended after we brought attention to a tweet where he said “it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops”, also stated that “it’s good” that Assata killed cops:

Far-left violence has escalated dramatically since the election of Donald Trump. In just the last few months armed Antifa groups have called for “revolutionary violence”, GOP headquarters have been attacked, and a far-left activist was arrested with bomb making materials. These stories get little if any coverage from legacy media outlets like CNN while at the same time, their commentators openly praise convicted terrorists like Chesimard and call her a “freedom fighter”.

If that is not a dog-whistle to the violent, unhinged left I don’t know what is.

Multiple Democratic Socialists of America leaders endorse Communism

Posted on July 1, 2018 in The Extreme Left

The Democratic Socialists of America recently got a major boost when one of their endorsed candidates, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, beat out incumbent Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary last Tuesday for New York’s 14th Congressional District.

This far-left political organization previously made headlines when leadership from their Iowa State campus chapter encouraged people to shoot president Trump and when leadership from their University of Georgia Chapter called for the execution of house GOP members. Now multiple DSA leaders are publicly endorsing communism, an ideology responsible or the oppression, incarceration, and murder of tens of millions of people.

Here is the original tweet from Olivia Katbi Smith, who is the co-Chair of the Portland DSA chapter:

Shortly after, other DSA leaders weighed in with their endorsement of communism.

The Charlottesville DSA co-chair:

The Hudson County DSA co-chair:

The Seattle DSA co-chair:

An Officer for the Queens DSA chapter:

Since her win, legacy media has rolled out the red carpet for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and for “democratic socialism”. She has done interview after interview after interview and appears to be starting her “late night comedy” circuit but for some reason, her affiliation with an organization whose members have openly called for the murder of their political opposition and who are now endorsing a violent authoritarian ideology has not been brought into question. Why is that? Could you imagine a Republican winning a primary and being endorsed by an organization whose members advocated for the murder of Democrats and whose leadership said “Nazism is good”? How differently would that play out?

NYC Antifa group hosts pro-terrorism documentary screening

Posted on May 24, 2018 in The Extreme Left

Antifa groups are not shy about their support for terrorism. They openly engage in targeted, premeditated, political violence; and in many cases do so with the full support of the media. Within the larger “antifa” umbrella there are multiple cells with different names, organizational structures, and stated goals; ex. “Anti-Racist Action, Redneck Revolt, Red Guards, etc. One particular group that we have reported on in depth is the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM)This organization, which is heavily armed and currently has at least four active cells, is even more militant than your run-of-the-mill antifa group. They have hosted “Our Enemies in Blue” anti-police workshops, coordinated a national “Destroy Columbus Day” event, and openly supported international communist militia groups.

Click to view slideshow.

This Saturday, the far-left extremist group will be hosting a documentary screening titled “We Need to Take Guns” which details the work of the International Freedom Battalion (IFB) and discusses strategy and tactics for “revolutionary internationalism”. In the trailer for this documentary; armed, masked communist fighters encourage people to “build self-defense organizations” and say that “whether it is here today in Rojava against the fascists, or in factories in France against the bosses we encourage everyone to organize and we know that one day or another, we will defeat them”.

The International Freedom Battalion is a coalition of mostly Marxist-Leninist, communist militia groups fighting in Syria. To their credit, they are actively fighting the Islamic Supremacists of ISIS but that does not negate the fact that they wish to replace one murderous, authoritarian ideology with another.

With each passing month the violent rhetoric and actions from the far-left becomes more extreme. These armed antifa cells have escalated from simply offering verbal support and solidarity with these international terrorist groups to actively learning how to apply those same terrorist strategies domestically.

White Privilege Conference features Professor who said free speech is “white supremacy”

Posted on May 14, 2018 in The Extreme Left

Ryerson University, a state funded university in Canada, recently hosted a multi-day “White Privilege Conference“. What was the purpose of this state funded conference? According to Dr. Denise O’neil Green, the Vice-President of Equity and Community Inclusion, the goal of the conference was to:

“…bring a myriad of voices to the table so that we can have honest conversations and overcome these obstacles together. This is an inclusive event rooted in the desire to uplift people from all walks of life, and we welcome diverse perspectives so that our solutions are representative of our society…”

So what kind of curriculum were Canadian tax dollars being spent on? In addition to an “Aboriginal Art Tour”, an “Indigenous Walking Tour”, and a Youth Program designed to teach students in grades 6 through 12 how to “dismantle white supremacy, white privilege and other forms of oppression in their communities”, the conference also consisted of multiple lectures and breakout sessions with titles like “Combating Systemic Racism in School Mathematics” and “White People: From Origins in North America to a Global Norm”. One of the keynote speakers at this conference was Rinaldo Walcott, who is the Director of the Women & Gender Studies Institute at the University of Toronto. When we saw he was a featured speaker we thought his name was familiar. It turns out he is the same professor who said that free speech and academic freedom are “white supremacist speech”. We shared this screenshot of his tweet shortly after he appeared on a televised panel discussing the “Jordan Peterson Incident” at Wilfrid Laurier University.

Here are a few other tweets from him with that same theme:

The great irony is that this Professor who claims that “universities are white supremacists institutions” is giving a keynote speech at a multi-day “White Privilege Conference” at a state funded university. Walcott is just one of many Professors who use their position and influence in academia to advance an ideology that only views the world through the lens of “victim vs. oppressor”, and like many other far-left Professors, the criteria he uses to define “white supremacy” appears to get broader by the day.

Kansas City Antifa group brags about assaulting police officers

Posted on May 8, 2018 in The Extreme Left

An antifa cell in Kansas City called the Red Guards Kansas City recently published a report on their blog detailing their May Day 2018 activities. As was typical for many antifa groups who participated in May Day, this cell masked up and marched through the streets waving communist flags and carrying a large banner honoring the legacy of communist dictators who butchered tens of millions of people in the 20th century.

We previously reported on this same cell holding armed demonstrations and advocating for political violence but here are some additional pictures from their Facebook page:

Click to view slideshow.

What makes this particular May Day event unique are four distinct factors:

1. According to their report, at least one of the antifa members was armed:

“In very short order, more than five cop cars were following us, with more on the way. They did not wait long after we had refused their warnings to take action. Although they profess to be protecting public safety and enforcing the law, their first actions were to block the entire street and snatch up a comrade who was exercising his right to open carry.”

2. According to their report, they physically attacked the arresting officers

The pigs blows did not go unanswered however. Communists have every right to defend their comrades when they are being attacked by foot soliders of the oppressive state apparatus, and during the clashes anonymous rebels were able to land hits on the pigs, before retreating back into the group.

3: According to their Facebook page, five members were arrested that day:

4. None of this was covered in the media.

So armed, masked, far-left extremists marched through the streets while praising a political ideology whose adherents have killed tens of millions of people. When confronted by the police, members of this group attacked officers and were taken into custody. In spite of ALL OF  THAT,  we could not find any media coverage of these arrests. Why do you think that is?

Anyway, if you are a Kansas City resident or a concerned citizen interested in creating a safer society, please contact the Kansas City Police Department and let them know that the antifa activists they arrested on May 1st published a blog in which they brag that they were able to “land hits on the pigs”. If you email the department, make sure to include this archived version of the antifa group’s blog post.

Antifa group hangs Trump effigy, calls for “military action” against conservatives

Posted on May 2, 2018 in The Extreme Left

Every year on May 1st, hundreds of thousands of leftists all over the world mobilize for “International Worker’s Day”. While this opportunity is used by many to advocate for every cause on the intersectional social justice spectrum, (feminism, LGBT rights, immigrant rights, anti-Islamophobia, etc.) the main theme is a celebration of communism. It’s not uncommon to see people marching through the streets waving flags with the hammer and sickle, carrying banners glorifying mass murdering dictators, vandalizing and firebombing buildings, or openly advocating for murder.

2018 was no exception. Here are just some of the pictures from this year:

Click to view slideshow.

While violent antifa extremists in Paris firebombed businesses and torched police cruisers, the May Day activities were surprisingly mild in the US. Outside of some police cruisers being vandalized and the arrest of three Red Guards members in Charlotte, most May Day protesters opted to peacefully demand a larger more authoritarian state. Although criminal activity was surprisingly low this year, the violent rhetoric from militant antifa groups absolutely escalated. The Los Angeles cell of the Red Guards celebrated the holiday by organizing a small march, hanging a Trump Effigy, and giving a speech that they then published to their blog.

Here are some key quotes from that speech.

They open by declaring their solidarity with the other Maosist Red Guards cells who are working to replicate the work of the communist dictator, Mao Zedong, who murdered tens of millions of people:

“We stand in solidarity with the Red Guards and principally Maoist collectives who are working towards the creation of the Maoist Party. We stand in solidarity with Maoist parties across the world who are committed to building socialism and fighting revisionism through People’s War!”

Here they make it clear that they seek to militarize the masses and create an army:

“What needs to be done is the concentric construction of the three weapons of revolution: the Maoist Party, the Maoist People’s Army, and the Maoist United Front. What needs to be done is to militarize the masses and all the pre-Party Maoist formations!”

Here they openly call for “military actions” against their enemies (basically anyone who is not a communist):

“We must prepare today, yesterday and tomorrow for the prolong confrontation, the protracted war, against the capitalist state. We must carry out military actions against the enemies of the people!”

They then declare war on a bunch of different groups of people and follow that up with several quotes about how they are committed to revolutionary violence:

  1. “Our country’s working class knows only two roads: barbarism or socialism. And both require violence but only in the latter is that violence revolutionary and mastered by the proletariat, its Party and the masses.” 
  2. Our task is clear: only through revolutionary violence can the masses create real political power! 
  3. The masses are fighting back and we will guide them toward victory through revolutionary violence and warfare!

So just to recap; this communist militia group:

  • openly supports a communist dictator who brutally killed millions of people
  • openly advocates for targeted political violence against their enemies
  • and openly encourages armed insurrection against the U.S. government

With the information we have provided there should be zero doubt that the Red Guards constitute a legitimate security concern not only to the citizens of Los Angeles but to the general public as well. Considering that just under a year ago a far-left extremist opened fire on a GOP Congressional baseball practice game, I sincerely hope our reporting results in an investigation by the authorities. Here is how you can take just a few minutes and help us make sure that happens:

Action Plan:

  1. Submit a tip to the FBI. Make sure to include this archived version of the document outlined above as well as the link to our full report.
  2. Call the FBI’s Los Angeles field office at (310) 477-6565 and make sure they know there is an LA based extremist group openly advocating for political violence.
  3. Share this article, use the hashtag #InvestigateAntifa and tag @FBILosAngeles
