A large majority of children love the Saint-Nicholas feast and look forward to it for weeks. However, with the increasing cultural diversity of the Netherlands, opposition and criticism of it grows. A small minority of black people fuelled by ‘Antifa snowflakes’ have a problem with the fact that Saint-Nicolas’s helpers are dressed up with “blackface”. According to them it is racist and has a strong connection with slavery.
If you’re even barely intelligent and mildly educated, you’d realize that ideas such as “guilt by association” and “two wrongs make a right” are commonly accepted logical fallacies. One needn’t be particularly bright, nor even fully pubescent, to grasp this.
But for growing swaths of the pro-globalist—and therefore the unwittingly pro-corporate, pro-capitalist, and pro-banker—radical left, even “two wrongs make a right” is no longer sufficient. For them, it’s now “Commit the first wrong based on the theoretical possibility that a second wrong will be committed if you don’t hit first.”
‘Antifa’ clothing is no longer available on Walmart’s website as of Saturday afternoon. The clothing’s third-party manufacturer, TEE Bangers LLC, also appears to have pulled the line promoting the far-leftist group whose activities were “formally classified” by the Obama Administration “as domestic terrorist violence.”
As recently as Saturday morning, Breitbart News reported that the mega-retailer was offering at least 13 different “made in Mexico” sweatshirts that would “[allow you to] express yourself inside the opposition to the ideology, organizations, governments and people from the far right (fascism).”
You can find conservative policy centers like the Family Research Council on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate map,” but not the violent left-wing extremist group antifa.
Why not? Antifa’s radical activists are known for beating up those they view as “fascists,” but according to SPLC president Richard Cohen, antifa doesn’t actually espouse hate.
“If you are familiar with our work, we write about antifa often,” Mr. Cohen said in his Thursday testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee. “We condemn their tactics — I’ve said so publicly and we do so always — but antifa is not a group that vilifies people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion and the like.”
Mr. Cohen came to testify on domestic terrorism but wound up tangling with House Republicans over the SLPC’s extensive offshore financial holdings, its relationship with Google in creating a “hate news index,” and the politics behind its “hate map.”
Rep. Scott Perry, Pennsylvania Republican, blasted the SPLC for failing to include antifa, saying it “reduces your credibility,” and accused the group of picking and choosing its targets based not on empirical data but “only your opinion.”
The New York Times has glorified Antifa and its more violent “black bloc” rioters with a style guide, complete with riot gear advice.
In their article, titled “What to Wear to Smash the State,” the New York Times detailed the fashion of violent far-left rioters who enjoy “punching Nazis,” before advising what to wear during violent protests and riots.
Federal domestic terrorism investigators are probing “a number of” people animated by “kind of an Antifa ideology,” FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers Thursday.
“We do have a very active domestic terrorism program,” Wray told the House Homeland Security Committee. “And while we’re not investigating Antifa as Antifa — that’s an ideology and we don’t investigate ideologies — we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology.”
The former head of the University of California Berkeley College Republicans is suing Yvette Felarca, the far-left activist behind By Any Means Necessary, and one of the leaders of the Antifa movement.
According to Campus Reform, Troy Worden is seeking more than $100,000 in damages over what he claims are a series of harassing and frivolous restraining orders he says Felarca filed in order to keep the UC Berkeley College Republicans from exercising their right to free speech.
Michael Hanson is a former Dane who returned to Europe after a 10 year absence and made a movie of what he saw of the effects of Islam on the streets of Europe. The documentary was screened by the Ottawa library staff and scheduled for view on Saturday, Nov. 25. But a threatened street protest by ANTIFA and Ottawans Against Fascism caused cancellation of the viewing.
One conservative has had enough and has filed a lawsuit against a leader in the Antifa movement. Berkeley College Republicans’ former president Troy Worden is seeking $100,000 in damages from Yvette Felarca, an organizer for national activist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN).
La Meute and Storm Alliance had a very successful day… Antifa not so much
Supporters of Quebec’s far-right outnumbered counter-protesters at a demonstration Saturday in Quebec City, where police detained more than 40 people in an effort to keep the two sides from clashing with each other.
Between 300 and 400 members of far-right groups, including La Meute and Storm Alliance, marched in the rain to a convention centre that was hosting a major policy meeting of the governing Quebec Liberal party.

Debate over the First Amendment is heating up at Lane Community College (LCC), and a local Antifa group has even resorted to harassing a professor who they’ve deemed “alt-right.”
On Saturday, Eugene Antifa posted a tweet targeting LCC Professor Jeffrey Borrowdale, stating, “Young Americans for Liberty sponsor, Milo admirer, Alt-Right & all around crappy ‘instructor’ @ Lane Community College in #Eugene #Oregon preparing to debate free & hate speech this morning. Let him know it’s time for him to go!”
“To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.” That’s the beginning of a famous bible verse. It’s a litany of life’s times and wonders that are dropped in our laps; weeping, laughing, dancing, healing.
The last line purposely changes tone and says, “a time for war”.
On November 11th, Private Sector Arms published a video to their YouTube channel titled, “ANTIFA WANNABE”. For Don Teague, the owner, it started out as just a normal day. As Don was getting ready to take pictures of his guns, an unusual costumer arrived on the scene. Dressed in all black, and not at all having the intention to actually buy anything, the situation quickly became confrontational.
