Oakland, CA: White Antifa Thugs Disrupt Pro-Police Rally, Scream At Black Supporters

Oakland, CA: White Antifa Thugs Disrupt Pro-Police Rally, Scream At Black Supporters

“Several Antifa, who appear to be all white, showed up to ‘protest’ by drowning out mostly black speakers who were naming and remembering homicide victims,” the Twitter account AntifaWatch2 reported.

At the same time national Democrats were gaslighting the American people by falsely claiming it was actually Republicans who wanted to defund the police all this time, Democrats in the crime-ridden city of Oakland, California voted to cut another nearly-$20 million in funding from the city’s police budget.

Oakland City Council president Nikki Fortunato Bas, a Democrat, was unapologetic over the vote last month, calling it “historic” and portraying it as a positive step for the future of the city. She also hinted that more cuts could be coming in the near future, telling a local news outlet that “because police have the largest share [of the budget], there could be more redistribution.”

Understandably, this greatly frustrated Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong, who gave an emotional speech the following Monday in which he spoke of how the cuts to his department’s already-depleted budget would further negatively impact police responses to crime:

“Saturday night, I went out to a scene of a young man who lost his life, and a lady yelled out the window, ‘Do something about it.’ Without the resources, it makes it challenging to make Oakland safe, and more families find themselves dealing with trauma,” the chief said.

“I hope that we could politics aside and put public safety first. Put people’s lives first before political agendas,” he added.

Watch:

Over the weekend, Armstrong, who was born and raised in West Oakland, led a rally in the city and was joined by supporters of the police department including family members of loved ones who had been murdered. The goal of the gathering was to raise awareness of the rising violent crime rate in the city and to show support for the community and police:

“We continue to see shootings every night in the city,” Armstrong, wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with #SAFEOAKLAND, said at the event. “It is time we come together and we unite behind reducing gun violence in the city of Oakland. There are people in our community who don’t feel safe. There are seniors in our community who cannot come out at night. There are young, African-American men and Latino men that are at risk in our city. We have to come together; this is not about politics, this is about saving lives.”

Nearby, however, there was an anti-police rally that appeared to involve members of Antifa. At certain points, things began to get tense:

Still, a group of dissenters stood at the back of the police-sanctioned event, carrying anti-law enforcement signs and naming, by megaphone, every person in recent years who has been killed by Oakland police.

At different points, the two sides engaged in a heated dialogue. Some among the pro-police crowd shouted that the demonstrators were harming the Black Lives Matter movement. Black participants in the anti-police demonstration responded that they simply want Oakland police to stop killing so many people.

Members of the anti-police group said later that most of them were not affiliated with the APTP [Anti Police-Terror Project]. While chanting the names of those killed by police in Oakland, the group lingered on Oscar Grant, who was killed by a BART police officer in 2009.

View some photos and videos of the tense moments between the two camps below. It’s hard to understand what was said, but just by body language and raised voices alone, you can tell the pro-police rally attendees were not interested in being lectured to:

My first thought upon seeing the tweets and watching the clips was that it was so infuriatingly typical for white liberals to try and tell black people what’s best for them. Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald expressed the thought much better:

The same thing happens with women and other minorities who don’t toe the left’s line because smug liberals always think they know best. Worse, you get accused of being a “traitor” to your group for simply daring to think differently.

If last year’s House elections are a reliable indicator, a growing number of minorities are fed up with the patronization they receive from Democrats and are moving away from the party.

It’s precisely why Democrats are desperate to get the Defund the Police albatross off their backs. Unfortunately for them, it won’t work.

Does anyone now doubt that these thugs are the soldiers of the Democratic Party and likely have a working relationship with the FBI?

    According to Wray, Klantifa is “just an idea”. Meanwhile, his jack-booted thugs brag about capturing grandmothers and Lego sets.

      wjamyers in reply to Paddy M. | July 11, 2021 at 9:41 pm

      You used quotations, but that’s not what Wray said. What he actually said was: “We look at Antifa as more of an ideology or a movement than an organization. To be clear, we do have quite a number of properly predicated domestic terrorism investigations into violent anarchist extremists, any number of whom self-identify with the Antifa movement.” Get it right or don’t put it in quotes, we get enough fake news from leftists.

        That doesn’t make it any better, especially in li9ht of the non-action displayed in regards to antifa supporters.

        “Quite a number of investigations”… all of which were promptly sandbagged and circular filed, judging from the results.

This is telling in how far overplayed the Donk’s have gone:
– the 2020 election
– audits
– voter ID
– defund the police
– everything is infrastructure
– border issues
– CRT
– etc.
– all of it…

The question – will there be any consequences to the Donks?

    scooterjay in reply to rabid wombat. | July 11, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    No.
    Voting is soooo 2016 that they have to manipulate, lie, cheat and steal to make your life safer.
    We lost….it’s going to take more than words and untrustworthy politicians to stop this.
    We all know where it is leading….and that is what they want, a weapon to demonize us and justify their confiscation fantasy.
    It is going to take a bit of “biting on a bullet” to correct this dangerous course.

      Does anybody have any confidence in the legitimacy and accuracy of any vote count where Democrats are involved after what we have learned over the last 8 months or so? TINVOWOOT.

The cold war did not end. Marxists are trying to undermine the USA.

CRT and BLM just want to divide America to cause chaos and discord.

All of the neo-racism is completely opposite to the teachings of Martin Luther King Jr. MLK outright rejected the concept of using racism to fight racism. He saw it as a dead-end. Malcom-X wanted to discriminate against Whites. Neo-racism is just rehashed Malcom-X.

…>> MLK said “”Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can
…>> do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”

People who fall for the bullshit pushed by race-baiters are being payed for fools.

So mentally unstable white protesters show up to tell black citizens they aren’t doing “black” correctly?

You want your freedom back? Take it back..

Once you cave, then the demands by tyrants will never stop..

Boy, it sure drives “Massa” crazy when their slaves leave the plantation.
Wonder why? A “Million Conservative Black Man March” would be fun, just to watch the media twist into pretzels

    healthguyfsu in reply to scooterjay. | July 11, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Why make it all men? Women/children/families allowed (if they are comfortable doing so)

    That would make even more furious pretzel twists because they despise the nuclear family and the success that it brings.

Black lives continue only to matter to these parasites when they’re ended by police.

    Arminius in reply to SeymourButz. | July 12, 2021 at 10:06 am

    No, black lives never matter to the #BLM garbage. Some black deaths are useful to them. A lot of those black lives the police end? They were the wasted lives of career violent criminals who ended or ruined other black lives. You’ll never hear about the victims of the “martyrs” we’re supposed to cry over.

    But to a communist a lie in service to the “truth” (the cause of communism) is the truth, so #BLM it is. To anyone with a moral compass the it would be #SBDAUTBACR. Some black deaths are useful to bring about communist revolution.

It was minorities in NYC that nominated a cop for mayor, white leftists were aghast!

By the way, the communists are doing what they always do. First destroy, then replace.

They do it with history. Destroy it, replace it with a false historical narrative i.e. the 1619 project.

Destroy the legitimate Constitution, replace it with the Soviet one in which the Bill of Rights is replaced by Article 70, making anti-Soviet (i.e. anti Democrat party) agitation (dissent) is a capital offense.

And destroy the police. And how nice of the replacement force to show up as counter-protesters to this pro-police rally and identify themselves.

The Bolsheviks, after all, didn’t keep the old czarist police around after the revolution did they?

And CRT is central to the program of destroying the norms, values, and institutions that were pillars of the bourgeois capitalist society in order to bring on the revolution.

Oops. That was Horkheimer and his critical theory. Critical race theory is sooo original in thought. Note the huge difference. Critical race theory is central to the program of destroying the norms, values, and institutions that were the pillars of the racist, white supremacist capitalist society in order to bring on the revolution.

Also note that the counter protesters were reading the names of those “killed” by the Oakland PD. If you actually investigate those names you’ll find that those “martyrs” were actually career criminals. Note that St. George Floyd of the Holy Counterfeit Check was also arrested for shoving a handgun into the abdomen of pregnant woman in the course of an armed robbery.

I admit I stopped after looking into 5 of the individuals on one of the lists commonly used by this human trash; I don’t know if there are more lists. I did notice that it took 15 years for the police to “kill” the 20 individuals on the list that was being passed around on twitter. If the cops are “hunting” black men they are piss poor hunters. Here in Texas I could get 15 hogs in a single year if I had the freezer space.

I stopped because every single one of the first five on the list had committed violent crimes. One was constantly getting arrested for drug possession, felon in possession of a firearm, and resisting arrest. Pretty standard for these “innocents who were just turning their lives around” when they got shot by the cops for violently resisting AGAIN. But this one individual had raped a child. At least statutorily. He was convicted, ordered to register as a sex offender, and given probation!?!?. Something tells me if it had been the child of a friend of the judge as opposed to some black single mom in the hood the sentence wouldn’t have been probation. Naturally he violated probation and was sentence to 6 years in the Louisiana Department of Corrections. Where he served a fraction of his sentence, got out and went back to dealing drugs and of course carrying an illegal handgun. Eventually he got himself shot and ended up on the list of “martyrs” I’m supposed to care about.

Point being, Antifa/#BLM will defend child rapists. And no wonder. The Bolsheviks considered criminals a friendly social element since they were only criminals due to the oppression and inequities of the evil, oppressive, czarist capitalist system. So do our domestic communists. These poor innocents are only criminals due to the oppression and inequities of the evil, oppressive racist, white supremacist capitalist system (that’s what systemic racism is; capitalism).

The Bolsheviks, by the way, didn’t release the criminals BTW. They put the murderers, rapists, thieves, etc., in a privileged position in charge of the gulags. That’s one of the reasons the gulags were so deadly for the political prisoners.

And afterward the White Antifa people got into their cars to go back to their homes in safe neighborhoods while congratulating themselves on a job well done.

    More likely their parents’ basements.

    Lafayette, Moraga, or Orinda. Known by the cuties-pie portmanteau “LaMorinda”. Given the house prices and the attendant taxes, it’s more like MorInDette.

Always nice to see community engagement from idle white d/progressive allies venturing into communities of color to explain why those community members are guilty of wrong think.

“I hope that we could politics aside and put public safety first. Put people’s lives first before political agendas,” he added.

And continuing to show up for work in a city that does precisely the opposite every day, advances your hopes how?
