"Anti"Fa Attacks Two Hispanic Marines, Accusing Them of Being White Supremacists

As Amber Athey notes, Don Lemon's and Chris Cuomo's defense of "Anti"Fa isn't aging very well.


Two U.S. Marines testified last week that they were attacked by a "mob" of Antifa members who mistook them for participants in a right-wing rally in November.

Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres testified in a Philadelphia, PA courtroom that they were attending a local event for Marines last month when they were confronted by members of Antifa, including suspects Thomas Massey and Tom Keenan.

Keenan allegedly demanded to know if Godinez and Torres were members of the Proud Boys, a right-wing group that was demonstrating nearby at the time. Godinez explained that he and Torres are Marines, but said that, nonetheless, the group of 10 to 12 Antifa members began mercilessly attacking them.

According to the Marines’ testimony, their attackers started calling them "Nazis" and "white supremacists" while they punched and kicked them. Godinez shouted, "I'm Mexican!" which allegedly caused the attackers to start calling them ethnic slurs like "spic" and "wetback."

Godinez said he was maced, punched in the head and kicked in the ribs. When the attack was over, Torres called 911 and the pair went to the hospital. Godinez still reportedly has eye issues from being maced and said he may need surgery in the future to deal with his other injuries.

John Sexton already wrote this up on Friday. He also wondered anew when CNN would correct Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo and declare that antifa is indeed a violent mob.

And, on this subject, if you read one post today, make it Sexton's post on a former leftist radical explaining the lunacy that he was once part of. You can check that post out for key excerpts plus an interview on Tucker (though note, he's an intellectual type, not a performer; some will find his television manner dry), and if you like those quotes do read his entire essay at Quillette. It's a very insightful piece.

Unfortunately, toxicity in radical communities is not a bug. It is a feature. The ideology and norms of radicalism have evolved to produce toxic, paranoid, depressed subjects. What follows is a picture of what happens in communities that are passionately, sincerely, radically woke, as seen from the perspective of an apostate.

Faith

Commentators have accurately noted how social justice seems to take the form of a religion. This captures the meaning and fulfilment I found in protests and occupations. It also captures how, outside of these harrowing festivals, everyday life in radical communities is mundane but pious. As a radical activist, much of my time was devoted to proselytizing. Non-anarchists were like pagans to be converted through zines and wheatpasted posters rather than by Bible and baptism. When non-radicals listened to my assertions that nazis deserved death, that all life had devolved into spectacle, and that monogamy was a capitalist social construct, they were probably bewildered instead of enticed.

Instead of developing a relationship to God and a recognition of one's own imperfection, we wanted our non-anarchist families and friends to develop their "analysis" and recognize their complicity in the evil of capitalism. These non-anarchist friends grew increasingly sparse the longer I was an anarchist. They didn't see how terrible the world was, and they used problematic language that revealed hopelessly bad politics. Frustrated with them, I retreated further and further into the grey echo-chamber of my "chosen family."

Trent Eady says of his own radicalism in Montreal, "When I was part of groups like this, everyone was on exactly the same page about a suspiciously large range of issues." When my friends and I did have theoretical disagreements, they tended towards the purely strategic or to philosophical minutiae. Are cops human? If we pay attention to the few white nationalists in town, will that stir them up? Is polyamory queer, or privileged?

Deep and sincere engagement with opposing points of view is out of the question. Radicalism is like a clan too suspicious of outsiders to abandon cousin marriage, and, like incestuous offspring, radicalism's intellectual offspring accumulate genetic load.

This brings me to a rant. I have a friend who has a distillery - this is a good friend to have! - and he is bringing wheat bourbons back. I would prefer to buy his, but he is in a neighboring state, and you can't buy it here. Because reasons.

But also, I cannot buy a handgun in a neighboring state. I can buy a long gun in a neighboring state. Why is this not a violation of the Second Amendment?

109 [From the excerpt:] Unfortunately, toxicity in radical communities is not a bug. It is a feature. The ideology and norms of radicalism have evolved to produce toxic, paranoid, depressed subjects. What follows is a picture of what happens in communities that are passionately, sincerely, radically woke, as seen from the perspective of an apostate.

110 As I wrote a few years ago about radicalism and the new normal:

The problem is, this new system is lacking in bones. It can't replace the old system because there's nothing to attach to. Relativism and endlessly shifting "progressivism" do not allow any real structures to be built. In real, practical terms, you cannot build for a future you cannot know or predict. You cannot work on new projects, when you never know if they're going to be declared hateful and bigoted next year. You cannot research new ideas because you can't know if they will even be allowed by the time they are developed.

And in a culture without any concept of gratitude, constantly self-obsessed, and demanding all without giving any, you cannot expect any sort of functional work force. In a culture that rejects the old, believes nothing has any meaning, and everything is relative, you can't even educate the workforce or the future. In a culture that is constantly changing to match the newest ideas of "progress," you cannot even start to develop any plans.

In other words, this new system is utterly self destructive, it is violently, stupidly suicidal. And in a sad, strange, but all-too-predictable twist, almost none of the adherents to this system can even begin to attempt an explanation for what they believe and why.

135 JS, thanks. I am aware of the extremely suggestive and dubious stuff about the F302 filing date, vs. original drafting date, and the texts ("launch").


But if F302 were "edited" (i.e., FBI agents/executives conspiring to lie), one would think Flynn - instead of pleading guilty - would have gone ape-s**t, and challenged the entire premise (that he lied). Making it a he said/they said situation, with not a chance of the charge sticking at trial.


Yeah yeah so Flynn's son, Turkish stuff, pleading to avoid further damage, financial problems from legal costs, get all that. But of course the larger national interest is in seeing any FBI/DOJ corruption rooted out and harshly punished, and Flynn playing along on this may ironically impede that.


Also puzzling that some are crowing Flynn will "do no time" thanks to revelations of possible funny business with the 302s and associated FBI chatter. Thought the SCO sentencing memo reco'd "no time" as the lower limit of its recommendation? So Judge Sullivan would not be exacting the tiniest bit of punishment by sentencing Flynn to nothing.

Strong possibility is that Judge Emmet Sullivan will vacate the conviction of Flynn, and recommend contempt on Mueller and crew for not providing the 302's as requested.

I'm currently reading a book of Justice Scalia's speeches called "Scalia Speaks." What a wise, inspiring man and great writer.

172 Virtue signaling is not new.FDR was once sent a Japanese soldiers finger bone made into a letter opener by a Marine.He ordered it buried with full military honors.

175 I don't know how much money we send to other countries but I bet there is more than enough to pay for the wall wasted every year.

176 The war on jihad (yes, it's islam) and their allies here in America and the rest of the civilized world is what we are fighting. Anyone who doesn't realize this is not very bright. Somebody had to say it.

178 I would donate to the wall fund if there was some way to guarantee that it gets built.

179 The problem is, this new system is lacking in bones. It can't replace the old system because there's nothing to attach to. Relativism and endlessly shifting "progressivism" do not allow any real structures to be built. In real, practical terms, you cannot build for a future you cannot know or predict. You cannot work on new projects, when you never know if they're going to be declared hateful and bigoted next year. You cannot research new ideas because you can't know if they will even be allowed by the time they are developed.

I like that. The leftists adopt the term "progressive" as if they were rationally progressing towards some point based on certain principles.

But then you see all the inconsistencies, contradictions, you see them attacking each other and you realize the whole thing is a chaotic mess. No scaffolding, no skeleton.

180 Godinez replied "I'm Mexican" after Antifa thugs called him a "white supremacist". Maybe he was calling on identity politics to get Antifa to stand down. Not that it did him any good, though.

185 I mentioned in the last thread that the article about Saturn's rings decaying is cool. It's long been suspected that planetary rings are temporary phenomena, probably caused by colliding moons or something like that. It's good to see some real evidence.

So we're fortunate to happen to be alive to see Saturn's rings in all their majesty before they dissipate. Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune all have ring systems that are much smaller and fainter than Saturn's. They were probably more prominent in the past.

187 This story was trending on facebook when it first was reported, with the belief that the Marines were attacked by Trump supporters at the rally. When the truth was revealed, down the memory hole it went

188 "Godinez said he was maced, punched in the head and kicked in the ribs. When the attack was over, Torres called 911 and the pair went to the hospital. Godinez still reportedly has eye issues from being maced and said he may need surgery in the future to deal with his other injuries"

Someone please ask the good folks over at Legal Innsurrection if THIS is a red line that would cause them to abandon their civil "rebellion" and pick up a rifle.

Because I still wonder if they even HAVE a red line. 2 years of asking politely didn't get a response.

You can be free.

But it requires a high risk tolerance.

194 It like liberalism, Socialism, Social Justice Warriors and democrat is like a Church where you have to go 24/7/365 and hear it from every outlet.Think Holiness, Jewish Islamic or any other religion that has a sermon every hour on how to live, not live, who to hate, who to love and the punishment for not adhering to the mantra and doctrine.It is and sounds, looks like a religious cult.Think and do as they say or go to hell.
