Auburn to pay large legal fees after attempting to silence Alt-Right speaker
AUBURN, Ala. — After failing to prevent white nationalist Richard Spencer from speaking on its campus last month, Auburn University is now paying $29,000 in legal fees to end a lawsuit that successfully challenged their cancellation. The legal fees will be paid to Cameron Padgett of Georgia, who sued the University after it refused to allow Spencer to speak after he already booked campus space.
Spencer originally scheduled a talk at Auburn’s James E. Foy Hall on Tuesday, April 18, where he would discuss the Trump presidency, Syria, identity, and the Alt-Right. But that speech was cancelled by the University “based on legitimate concerns and credible evidence that it will jeopardize the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors.” Spencer then said he would show up to campus with or without a room to speak in.
After the lawsuit was filed, Federal Judge W. Keith Watkins of Montgomery ordered Auburn to honor its original agreement with Spencer to speak at Foy Hall. AU complied with the order and said “It is now more important than ever that we respond in a way that is peaceful, respectful, and maintains civil discourse.”
In a twitter video, Spencer heralded the decision as a victory for free speech. “I did not think this was going to happen,” Spencer said. “I thought the chances of victory were slim, but we did it. This is a huge win.”
Spencer spoke to a crowd of several hundred at Auburn, while several hundred more protested his presence outside.
The Spencer episode is one of many nationally that have pitted the code of political correctness against the constitutionally enshrined value of free speech. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s invitation to the University of California, Berkeley sparked intense riots among liberal students who did not want her to step foot on campus. In Alabama, Former Breitbart Technology Editor Milo Yiannopoulos visited both Auburn and The University of Alabama last fall at the invitation of both schools’ College Republican groups, causing unrest amongst the schools’ liberal factions.
Trump administration freezes $10 million to fight “violent extremism”
When they say “violent extremism”, they mean White Nationalism.
More than 30 organizations — including six police departments — were tapped by the Obama administration to receive $10 million in grants to counter violent extremism. The Trump administration has those grants on hold.
There is no reason yet given, but the state taking some pressure off of White dissidents is definitely a good thing.
Antifa is not an organization. They are a meme. Disorganised individuals who have never met one another assemble following the same dress code. Once assembled they look like an organized and formidable black clad and masked fighting force. This is an illusion.
In a crowd of 100 antifa there are approximately 10 to 20 real fighters. 10 on the front line and perhaps 10 people milling around the crowd. Their main force are the handful on the front line. The rest are there for show. The rest are abject cowards who are waiting for you to fall down so that they can kick you or hit you. Or they throw rocks and m80s from behind.
If you can beat the 5 to 10 guys on the front line antifa runs for the hills no matter how large their numbers.
A motorcyle helmet and some pads will make almost all Antifa attacks meaningless. Their weapons are bear mace, rocks, and wooden rods disguised as flagpoles. A motorcycle helmet will prevent the powerful mace from getting in your eyes or ears and will neutralize rock and stick attacks. With a motorcycle helmet and padding you can wade in among them with near impunity. In addition a motorcycle helmet will provide anonymity in case you are caught on camera.
Because of the threat of their weapons your side needs to have sturdy flagpoles of your own to show your colors. If you are attacked they can provide an equalizing mode of self defense. It is suggested that you do not bring out the flags too early. While there is peace police have free reign to confiscate them. If violence breaks out police are no longer paying attention to flags and you may distribute them freely among your people.
Therefore a trusted person should be located outside the rally area with a duffle bag full of flags ready to distribute to the crowd as needed.
A trusted person should come equipped with a duffle bag full of black handkerchiefs balaclavas black shirts black hoodies and black pants that can slip over normal street clothes and fit most people. This way your side can blend in with antifa and neutralize rock and bomb throwers who are hanging in the back.
If you are a lone individual with no group you can take these tasks upon yourself. Remain quiet and let the fighters on your side know that you possess these available resources.
Do not tell rally organizers.
Rally organizers are snitches and controlled opposition most times. The real fighters are found on the front lines facing antifa.
5 or 10 fighters can dress in black and fall in behind the antifa frontline. Antifa does not know one another and they all are in disguise so get behind their front line and neutralize them. This is taking the head off the the snake.
I am not advocating for this but groups that have infiltrated antifa and threw rocks at the police got the police to charge antifa. I only mention this to illustrate how effective infiltration can be. Some cities even banned face masks as a result which decimated antifas turnout at future events.
Avoid uniforms. When antifa is faced with an amorphous mob in random street clothes they cannot tell a dedicated activist or fighter from a moderate or spectator. As such they have no realistic way of judging our strength. Also you can blend in with a crowd and lay low if your numbers are low. If you have a uniform of any kind you are a walking target for antifa and police.
Do not swing flagpoles over your head in self defense. Skulls are natures safety helmet. If you are being attacked firmly grip the flag pole with two hands and jab your attacker in the face for maximum stopping power. When antifa see the blood that this produces they will lose their appetite for mischief.
It is important to have a few runners that reassure the crowd and urge them forward. Likely CIA plants throw flash bang grenades to create fear and a breach in our lines. If you watch the sky and temporarily disperse they are harmless. Then immediately reform. It is important that runners reassure people that it is just harmless noise and that you need everyone to move forward to hold the line against antifa. If they see a weak spot they will charge. That’s why they throw incendiaries. Your crowd will be in much more danger if they retreat because antifa will come in swinging and harming innocents.
Bring first aid kits bandages and lots of milk. Milk will neutralize bear mace. Water will spread the mace. So don’t use water. People who did not wear motorcycle helmets will have cuts and mace in their eyes. They will need help. Its also good for moral to see people come back from mace and other attacks quickly. For this reason it will also be a good idea to interfere with antifa first aid providers.
Mainstream news cameramen should be interfered with as they are antifas public relations division. In fact it is their lies on television and in print that are responsible for you being attacked in the first place. They are far worse than antifa. Treat them accordingly.
A few people should be on guard to neutralize pacifists on your side. If your side is winning a fight do not allow anyone to pull your guys away or off a beaten antifa. Antifa has no qualms about attempted murder on our people. There can be no tolerance for pacifists on our side who attempt to thwart our people from winning. Any antifa that is protected will again attempt injury or murder upon our people as soon as he is returned to safety.
Dont talk to antifa. When they lose they will begin trying to dialogue even changing out of their black clothes. The same person you are having compassion for now was injuring innocent people with stones and mace an hour earlier. Give them no quarter. That includes their women however small in stature. They chose to join a gang. They revel in sadistic violence against innocent people. They must pay the consequences for their actions. When they take off the black clothing and engage you in dialogue snap a photo of them and share it widely so that we can hold her accountable for the crimes she has organized and committed against innocent rally goers. Do not underestimate how extreme the nice leftist you are having a reasonable dialogue with really is when the numbers are on her side. You are not going to convince her to become a right winger any more than she is going to convince you to be a communist. Show no mercy ever.
When the rally is over stay in a group and walk everyone to their cars. Once in a car caravan until everyone is safely in their vehicles. Leave no comrades walking alone. Antifa jumps stragglers and trashes their vehicles. So park far away from the event.
If you have no fight training get some. Police and antifa are on the same side. Both work to preserve the status quo. As such they both don’t want you to hold rallies. Often the police will stand by and allow you to be attacked. They are not your friends.
If you follow these guidelines you will prevail. If you don’t you are likely to end up in hospital.
