Earlier, April 2019: Joe Biden Thinks He's Running Against Racism.

On August 13, 2017, Jason Kessler, above, attempted to hold a press conference on the subject of the rally. He was physically attacked at that conference, and local authorities neither defended him, nor punished the attackers.

“The Unite The Right rally was such a disaster because both organizers and attendees failed to anticipate that state and local officials wouldn’t protect the demonstration,” VDARE.com’s “Charlottesville Survivor” wrote last night on the third anniversary of the opening  evening torchlight procession. As an organizer, I sadly agree. Above all, unlike Antifa, we had no lawyer allies lined up. Three years to the day after the August 12, 2017 mugging of the actual UTR demonstration by Democrat officials and their Antifa goons,  the legal entrapment of patriots continues to play out and will come to a head in a major courtroom battle this fall.

Post-UTR litigation has taken three forms: (1) state prosecution of individuals accused of violence. In a now-familiar anarcho-tyrannical pattern, this has generally resulted in savage punishments for UTR participants and slaps on the wrist for the Left; (2) civil actions by Leftists against various UTR participants (and non-participants), the sort of lawfare that the U.S. legal system makes available to the well-financed; (3) my own suit against the city of Charlottesville for infringing the First Amendment rights of Unite the Right participants by allowing Antifa to conduct a violent Heckler’s Veto.

Here’s where things currently stand:

Burke v Fields

This civil case is a bit of an oddity since it was filed in Ohio by an attorney from Skokie, Illinois, home of the famous Nazi free speech case, although none of the incidents related to Unite the Right occurring there. Many defendants, including myself, were dropped from the lawsuit after the attorney failed to serve us with the lawsuit.

The case has already met with some limited success after negotiating a $5,000 settlement with former Louisiana state representative David Duke, possibly to avoid the costs of further litigation [David Duke agrees to pay $5K to man hurt at Virginia rally, by Andrew Welsh-Huggins, WAFB9, January 23, 2020].

More seriously, the case has become a big problem for Richard Spencer and his National Policy Institute. Spencer apparently failed to file any response to the allegations within the required time and his organization is now liable for a potentially multi-million dollar default judgment.

Sines v Kessler et al.

The most high-profile Unite the Right lawsuit is going to court at the end of October. It is staffed by some of the most politically connected law firms in the country and funded to the tune of $9 million by the likes of the ADL and Jeffrey Epstein confidant (and LinkedIn co-founder) Reid Hoffman [Reid Hoffman apologizes for his role in rehabbing Jeffrey Epstein’s public image, by Megan Hernbroth, Business Insider, September 12, 2019].

The money is funneled through a 501c3 nonprofit called Integrity First for America. This organization has several fulltime six-figure salaried positions plus expenses for personal security, investigative services, and professional fundraising. [Read Integrity First’s 2018 IRS financial disclosures here]

The executive director, Amy Spitalnick is a former communications director for the New York attorney general and press secretary for the Israeli lobbying firm J Street. It is through her connections that the case and its outrageous allegations have received fawning treatment in the press, especially many outlets based in New York.

The director of research (another six-figure salaried full-time position) is Mary Mapes, a former Peabody Award-winning journalist who uncovered human rights abuses in Abu Ghraib ['60 Minutes II' Wins a Peabody Award, Raising Eyebrows, by David Carr, New York Times, April 8, 2005]. However, she was ultimately fired for producing another 60 Minutes item based on on false information about the service record of George W Bush, in what is colloquially known as “Rathergate.” [Four CBS Execs Fired Over Bush Memo Report, Forbes, January 10, 2005]

Some defendants, like League of the South, are hoping to knock out the claims in the lawsuit ahead of trial using a Motion for Summary Judgment to argue that there are no issues left in dispute and therefore no need for a trial.

At the heart of this claim (which you can read here) is that, despite an intrusive years’ long discovery process there is still absolutely no evidence that James Fields, convicted in the death of Heather Heyer, conspired with any of the other defendants in the case. In fact, investigations by both the Charlottesville Police Department and the FBI have found the opposite.

Kessler v Charlottesville

This lawsuit I filed against the Charlottesville government was dismissed by Judge Norman Moon, a Clinton appointee, under controversial circumstances and is currently docketed for an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals to the Fourth Circuit.

Earlier by Steve Sailer: Kamala Harris Vs. Descendants Of American Slaves 

My wonderful readers often have questions for me, particularly in what every TV commercial calls “these uncertain times” when we’re all “in this together” and must give hourly thanks to “our heroes.”

So, as I have in the past, I wanted to take a moment to reply to questions that have been pouring in from, again: no one.

     1) What do you think of Joe Biden’s pick of Kamala Harris as his V.P.?

I think Susan Rice or Keisha Lance Bottoms would have been better, but inasmuch as I predicted Kamala as the Democrats’ next presidential candidate back before she’d even won her Senate seat, I strongly support his decision for making me almost, kind of, in the ballpark right.

     2) That’s an amazing prediction—but what on earth made you predict her?

Because the Democratic Party is entirely about identity politics these days, meaning race, ethnicity, immigration status, gender and sexual orientation, but having absolutely nothing to do with economic class, social standing, occupational category or geographic location.

They already had Obama, so what’s better than the first black president? The first black woman president, of course!

     3) But she’s half-Indian and half-Jamaican, not a foundational black American. No reparations for her! In fact, her Jamaican father admits their family owned slaves.

Yeah, yeah. The only people who care about foundational black Americans are Tariq Nasheed and me. As described in my book Mugged, Democrats were always annoyed by the idea that civil rights should have anything to do with black people. That’s why “civil rights” quickly came to mean abortion rights, gay rights, the right not to see construction signs that say “Men at Work.” (That’s according to the Kentucky Commission on Civil Rights.) Black Americans should breathe a sigh of relief that Biden didn’t pick a transsexual and expect their gratitude.

There's bad blood between President Donald Trump and Comcast. It's no secret.

The commander in chief nicknamed the telecom giant "Concast" for presiding over incessantly skewed media coverage of his campaign and administration. Comcast is the parent company of NBC News and MSNBC, whose notorious fake news media execs are "trying to poison the mind of the American voter" in President Trump's view. On Twitter, he has called on supporters to drop the cable conglomerate for its "terrible service" and "go to a good provider" instead.

I was there: three years ago tonight, Friday, August 11, 2017, was the apex of the Alt Right: a typically imaginative resurrection of America’s torchlight procession tradition, taking the Left completely by surprise and provoking hysteria among liberals. But the next day, August 12, the Alt Right’s court-approved Unite The Right rally was brutally mugged by a gang of paramilitary, elected, uniformed, media and (later) robed Democrats. And this turned out a dress rehearsal for the anarcho-tyrannical nation-wide insurrection now taking place: Antifa violence; official complicity; police paralysis (unless arresting anyone trying to resist); all protected by tightly-controlled Narrative of Legacy Media lies. Maybe President Trump’s peculiar passivity will pay off at the polls. But to me right now ,it looks like Charlottesville 2017 was the beginning of a successful Communist coup against America.

In Chicago, Portland, and other cities around the country, chaos grips the streets. At the same time, governments and their chosen instruments are cracking down on law-abiding Americans’ rights to own guns, speak online, and defend themselves. Naïve normies wonder why Americans aren’t rising up to defend themselves and their heritage. They forget that nationalists already did that at Charlottesville and the state destroyed them.

A quick update on our lawsuit against the New York Times for accusing me of being an “open White nationalist” and then refusing to acknowledge, despite its own published guidelines, that it had made a stealth correction:

Our final response to the New York Times motion to dismiss is here. Many thanks to VDARE.com readers who commented on the preliminary draft linked in my story above.

The New York Times now gets to respond. Then U.S. District Court Judge Katherine Polk Failla will rule, possibly in sixty days.

One amusing point: the New York Times’ motion to dismiss (see here) cast some light on a question that has interested VDARE.com for years: what is the use of Ben Shapiro?

It said:

[B]y the time that The Times wrote about him, Brimelow’s reputation as a white nationalist and white supremacist was firmly established as a result of the things he said. A simple Google search turns up numerous national news organizations, over many years, making the same assertions about him and about VDARE. Even extremely conservative commentators have characterized Brimelow and VDARE as such. See, e.g., Ben Shapiro, Conservatives Oust Bigotry, and the Left Only Slams Them For It, National Review (Aug. 28, 2018),  (“[O]ther speakers included Peter Brimelow, creator of the white-supremacist site VDare.com.”)

This is a very curious argument for the New York Times’ lawyers to make. It is axiomatic that it is no defense to libel to point to others perpetrating the same libel.

But this passage in the New York Times’ brief does illustrate Shapiro’s usefulness to the Ruling Class: in claiming to lead and then betraying American patriots, he is (pardon the expression) a Judas Goat.
