Antifa Beat Bernie Sanders Supporter Who They Thought Was a ‘Nazi’ Because He Held an American Flag

Portland: Antifa thugs beat Paul Welch, described as a “slightly progressive leftist”, and clubbed him in the back of the head because he was holding an American flag. Ironically, he had gone to the demonstration to protest the right-wing Patriot Prayer group that he characterized as “fascist”. -GEG

Meet Paul Welch, a “slightly progressive leftist” who voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primary and Hillary Clinton in the general election. Welch had the snot knocked out of him by Antifa thugs at a Portland demonstration on Aug. 4 when they mistook him for a member of the alt-right because he was holding an American flag:

From The Oregonian:

Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued.

It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood.

Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter or among the other conservative activists who descended into the area that day, many from out of town.

He was one of hundreds of progressive Portlanders who had turned out to oppose the right-wing rally held at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

“I didn’t come as a part of any one group,” Welch said in an interview with The Oregonian/OregonLive. “I was just protesting outsiders coming here for their tacitly fascist event.”

So much for “punch all Nazis”:

And can we call Antifa a hate group yet?

Former Clinton Pollster Says Hillary Broke Campaign Finance Laws, Not Trump

Mark Penn, a former pollster for both Bill and Hillary Clinton, says that Michael Cohen’s guilty plea proves a double standard applied by prosecutors against President Trump, because they want him out of office. Hillary Clinton failed to report campaign expenditures that led to the Steele dossier – millions of dollars were paid to a Democratic law firm that, in turn, paid out money to political research firm Fusion GPS and British ex-spy, Christopher Steele, without listing them on any campaign expenditure form. Nothing was done about it. -GEG

Mark Penn, the former pollster for both Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, has penned an op-ed in The Hill Wednesday in which he argues that Michael Cohen’s guilty plea shows the double standard that prosecutors have applied unfairly to Donald Trump.

Penn argues that while what Trump is alleged to have done — paying Stormy Daniels for a non-disclosure agreement she had sought for five years prior to the election — was legal, Hillary Clinton failed to report campaign expenditures that led to the Steele dossier.

If anyone broke campaign finance law, Penn argues, it was Clinton, not Trump — but prosecutors want Trump out of office.

He writes:

The usual procedures here would be for the FEC to investigate complaints and sort through these murky laws to determine if these kinds of payments are personal in nature or more properly classified as campaign expenditures. And, on the Daniels payment that was made and reimbursed by Trump, it is again a question of whether that was made for personal reasons (especially since they have been trying since 2011 to obtain agreement). Just because it would be helpful to the campaign does not convert it to a campaign expenditure. Think of a candidate with bad teeth who had dental work done to look better for the campaign; his campaign still could not pay for it because it’s a personal expenditure.

Contrast what is going on here with the treatment of the millions of dollars paid to a Democratic law firm which, in turn, paid out money to political research firm Fusion GPS and British ex-spy Christopher Steele without listing them on any campaign expenditure form — despite crystal-clear laws and regulations that the ultimate beneficiaries of the funds must be listed.

SPLC Hate Group Gets VISA and MasterCard to Block Payments to David Horowitz Freedom Center

This week the SPLC persuaded Visa and MasterCard to block credit-card donations to David Horowitz’ Freedom Center. Horowitz is the founder of the Freedom Center, he publishes Frontpage Magazine, and is the director of Discover the Networks, a website that tracks leftists – so, naturally the leftist SPLC want him shut down.

According to Wikipedia, Horowitz’ parents both came from imperial Russia, and his father left in 1905, during a period of pogroms. His parents were schoolteachers, supporters of Stalin, and longstanding members of the American Communist Party.  David Horowitz was a leftist in the 1960s and 1970s and collaborated with the Black Panthers. Then, over time, he became a conservative. The SPLC says that Horowitz blamed slavery on black Africans and Arabs, but Horowitz replies that he never claimed that ONLY blacks and Arabs were responsible for slavery but was making a case that, if it is just to demand that whites pay reparations to blacks because their ancestors purchased slaves, then the demand also should include reparations from blacks and Arabs because their ancestors captured and sold slaves. The SPLC is not interested in this logic. It just want Horowitz out of business, and apparently the credit-card companies do also. -GEG

Former leftist leader David Horowitz former the Horowitz Freedom Center three decades ago to speak out against the evils that the Left has waged against America. The purpose of the Freedom Center is to to educate Americans on who the troops of the Left are, what they want, and what their plan of battle is.

Because of the organizations outstanding work they have been a frequent target of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) hate group.

For years the SPLC waged a war of its own on the Horowitz Freedom Center. The SPLC is also the same group that Twitter and Facebook use to fact-check target and censor conservative sites.

This week the SPLC got Visa and MasterCard to block donations to the Freedom Center.

No conservative voices will be allowed in America.
The left is out for complete elimination of prominent conservative voices and publishers.

 

This is the new America — we are no longer the home of the brave and land of the free.
