RAM is already being charged federally for going to Charlottesville – with the FBI having cited antifa in the criminal complaint.
Now they are facing totally separate charges in the state of California.
This is nothing more or less than exactly what it appears to be: a political crucifixion.
It is absolutely insane that the government is going after people who defend themselves against antifa while not prosecuting antifa – and then going so far as to use them as a source in their filings!
“Our” government is openly at war with the people of this country.
The leader and three members of a California-based white supremacist group have been charged with attacking counter-protesters, journalists and a police officer at political rallies throughout the state in 2017, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles said Wednesday.
The men and other members of the “Rise Above Movement” sought to “organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on riots” in Huntington Beach, Berkeley, San Bernardino and the deadly Charlottesville rally, the office said.
Robert Rundo, 28, who allegedly founded the group, was denied bail Wednesday after first appearing in court on Monday. Robert Boman, 25, and Tyler Laube, 22, were both arrested Wednesday morning, prosecutors said, while Aaron Eason, 38, remains at large.
“Every American has a right to peacefully organize, march and protest in support of their beliefs – but no one has the right to violently assault their political opponents,” U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California Nick Hanna said in a statement. “The allegations describe an orchestrated effort to squelch free speech as members of the conspiracy traveled to multiple locations to attack those who hold different views.”
According to an affidavit attached to the criminal complaint, RAM is a “combat-ready, militant group of a new nationalist white supremacy/identity movement” that trained members to fight and coordinated attendance at political rallies.
At a Huntington Beach “Make America Great Again” rally in March 2017, Rundo, Boman and Laube allegedly attacked multiple people, including two journalists, prosecutors said.
According to the affidavit, Laube grabbed one journalist by the shoulder then punched him in the face three times. Members of RAM later celebrated the assault when it was highlighted on a neo-Nazi website, “Daily Stormer,” the affidavit alleges.
That’s NEON-Nazi, bucko.
Also, I do not recall that event.
Unless it was this:
In which case yes, I do remember that, and no, that individual being punched was not a journalist, he was an antifa.
Furthermore, there were all kinds of people getting punched that day.
Is this bitch getting charged for punching this boomer for wearing a hat she doesn’t like?
I wonder why?
Is it because you’re allowed to punch Trump supporters – and in fact, the media itself has encouraged it with their “punch a Nazi” chant – but Trump supporters are prohibited from defending themselves?
Rundo was also arrested at an April rally in Berkeley for punching a “defenseless person” and a police officer, prosecutors said. Boman and Eason were allegedly violent at the rally, too, according to the affidavit.
In addition to the violence at rallies, Rundo allegedly maintained the group’s Twitter account, which posted photos and videos of the men training in hand-to-hand combat and of their alleged assaults at rallies, according to the affidavit.
Rundo and two of the men charged in Virginia celebrated Adolf Hitler’s birthday this spring in Europe, where they met with other white supremacy extremist groups, according to the affidavit.
The four men charged in California could face up to 10 years in federal prison if found guilty.
Did this affidavit also use antifa blogs as a source, I wonder?
Is that now just standard practice?
This is the biggest load of bullshit yet.
You know what? After Charlottesville, RAM was totally and completely on-board with GOOD OPTICS.
When I put out the call for people to stop attending these insane rallies lest they be hit with Trumped up charges, they were the first to be like “yeah dude, that’s obvious lol, we’re not doing this street shit anymore.”
Meanwhile, the costumed neo-Nazi gangs that were at Charlottesville are not facing any retroactive charges for shit that happened a over a year ago. Matt Heimbach went out despite everyone saying it was disgusting and continued fighting in the streets post-Charlottesville.
Is he not getting any charges because he’s already out of commission after having beaten up his wife when she caught him sleeping with his mother-in-law? Or are they not charging the costumed neo-Nazis because they want people to go do that?
I am absolutely disgusted.
Please, support RAM. Buy their ten dollar sticker. Buy several.
