Portland Organizer Reveals the Real Goal of the Actions There, and People Need to Hear It

Anti-fascist counter-demonstrators cross the Burnside Bridge across the Willamette River from the west side of the city to the east side in search of the far-right group, the Proud Boys, in Portland, Ore., Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019. Self-described anti-fascists vowed to confront the rally while leaders from the far right urged their followers to turn out in large numbers to protest the arrests of multiple members of right-wing groups in the run-up to the event.

The radical leftists who have been wreaking havoc at various places across the country have multiple chants.

One of them is “No KKK, no fascist USA.” They claim to be fighting “fascism.”

Now, that makes them sound noble, right? Fascism is bad and they’re fighting fascism, right? That’s how you get someone like CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo praising them, comparing them to WWII military who stormed the beaches at Normandy. What a horrible insult to those brave men.

Because when they say “no fascist USA,” they don’t mean to eliminate fascism in the USA, they mean in their judgment, the USA IS fascist, that there should be no “USA.”

When some of them are talking about getting rid of fascists, they frequently mean anyone to the right of them. Which is basically everyone but them. They literally are the fascists of whom they speak.

Check out what one of the Portland organizers, Lilith Sinclair, said at their “resistance protest” on Friday. Sinclair identifies as an “Afro-Indigenous non-binary local organizer.” Sinclair then said what they were organizing for, “not just for the abolition of the militarized police state but also the United States as we know it.”


There it is, that’s really what this is all about. If you don’t get it yet, you haven’t been paying attention.

It’s not just her, listen to the enthusiastic cheers and claps go up as she says it, including, disgustingly, the priest behind her clapping. There is no dissent. They’re standing there against a backdrop of some of the damage that Antifa has inflicted, with graffiti including “Make pigs go insane” and “Fook 12.”

She then also says they’re standing on “stolen land” and she wants to do a “land acknowledgment.”

Here’s what she’s said previously in June:

From Willamette Week:

For me, I cannot look at and will not look at these moments and these movements that are happening right now—we’re living through history—as riots. Instead, what they actually are, are the uprisings that the U.S. and every other imperialist and capitalist, racist and oppressive system has seen across history. There only comes a certain level to which you can ask large and vast numbers of people to sacrifice their literal health, lives and sanity for the capitalist system that will not provide for them and will also exploit their labor for the protection of the continual padding of the pockets of the 1 percent.


That’s how they view this, not as peacefully advocating for police reform or against police brutality.

That’s right, as we reported earlier here and here. Nancy Pelosi is calling the violence and the insurrection “First Amendment speech” and attacking the President, not calling out the insurrectionists.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) sums it up well.
