Raw Story

*The original source for this article is linked at Raw Story and is very Left.


According to The OC Weekly, the group advertised the Aug. 19 event by telling people that it was time to “purge their homes, State, and country of degenerate literature.”

“This includes literature of Marxism, Communism, Bolshevism, literature with liberal, democratic tendencies/attitudes, and writings supporting the decline of Western Culture,” the event description read. “Books on sexuality and sexual education which serves to indoctrinate the life of degeneracy, such as Cosmo and Teen Vogue should be brought to the fire as well. We will also burn the Koran, publications such as Karl Marx, and more. We must create a future without degeneracy for our children.”



“Free speech in America is under attack and as much as I do not want to shut this event down due to strong personal convictions regarding free speech, I cannot be responsible for injury or death due to intolerance from the violent Socialists,” he closed, according to OC Weekly.


Well at least his integrity and redundant fight for free speech is in tact. Woot. What's ironic is his intolerance of what he finds repugnant. This is supposedly the motivating factor of the fight for free speech, they (they = Alt-rightists = white supremacist/nationalist/Nazi) want to be able to post/spread their racist rhetoric anywhere, private or public.

So while roving bands of morons from the Right and Left scream at each other about free speech and hurl bike locks, lead pipes and vehicles back and forth. It all really boils down to... my culture, not yours.

I'm sorry but what the fudge is going on in the States right now? I mean I know the world has got problems and hell even the UK has issues but there seems to be an actual visible effort to turn the US into some sort of backward thinking "believe what we believe or die" country. People are literally talking about burning books (which as a reader is a crime in of itself for me personally, no matter what the book) they're demanding statues are taken down because it triggers them even though it is a piece of their history (history is neither good or bad but a representation of who we were and where we came from), they're openly talking about killing their President, (I'm not Trump fan by a long stretch but still) what the hell?

I'm actually starting to get concerned for the US and it's people who aren't doing this. Surely they must be messing themselves and stocking up on guns. I mean you've got no true honest media and CNN is out an out a America hating network and seems to be spend it's entire 24 hour run talking about how bad Trump is (Again not a fan). For a country that is the bastion of freedom (for now) why the hell is this happening and at what point does it stop?

Hey maybe I'm over reacting, maybe I'm just seeing this through the "outsider" point of view but from way out here there is something dangerous happening in the United States and if it isn't stamped out quickly I just can't imagine what will happen.

I am not attacking you OP when I say that I don't give this very much credibility.

For a group that has less than 6k members nationwide... they seem to be everywhere at once.

Strange, isn't it?

Good to know. What is it that makes you doubt? There's certainly a lot of propaganda flying around from all directions.

You know Kali, it is all about divide and conquer. Whoever is instigating this is not on anyone's side except their own. Bring down America and sit back and reap the rewards

Raw Story links to OC Weekly, which then links to Huntington Beach Allevents.in

So is anyone familiar with who this Brian Enright is ?

Apparently he's the organizer of the event, who then later decided to cancel.

He has an FB page, but I don't do Facebook or Twitter stuff so I can't link to it. There might be some posts from him on there about this event that he organized and then cancelled ?

So what it sounds like you are saying is that counter protesters just peacefully prevented a Nazi book burning rally.

I call that a win.

Book burning? Seriously?!

So you believe somebody is forcing neo-Nazis to burn books?

Since when have those types needed their arm twisted to burn books?

Not much choice when somebody is under FBI blackmail.

Burning down buildings is easier.

There's less resistance.

From the OP's link:

“I do not want to go into a long explanation at this time,” Cadavid began. “The event was in no way intended to eradicate these publications, more a symbolic way of showing that we do not approve of what is being taught to our children and maybe that should have been made clearer, I do not endorse the censorship of literature or personal political views in any way.

Also Brian Enright is part of this group:
en.wikipedia.org - 3 Percenters...

The Three Percenters (also styled "3%ers") is an American "patriot movement"[1] which pledges resistance against the United States government regarding infringement of the United States Constitution.[1] The group's stated primary purpose is to protect constitutional rights[2] and has been characterized as being ideologically similar to the Oath Keepers.


On January 8, 2016, the "3 Percenters of Idaho" group announced it was sending some of its members in support of the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, allegedly in order to "secure the perimeter" and to prevent a "Waco-style situation."[16] They left several hours later after being told their assistance was not needed.[17] Two days previously, Vanderboegh had described the occupiers as "a collection of fruits and nuts."[18] "What Bundy and this collection of fruits and nuts has done is give the feds the perfect opportunity to advance their agenda to discredit us," he said.

Juan Cadavid is alt-right, I think.

EDIT: That's an alias. Here he is:

I don't care what books they burn as long as they paid for them first.

Hell, I'll write a whole bunch of "repugnant literature" if they'll pay me so they can use it as kindling. I don't expect I'll need to hire an editor or beta-readers... could probably bang out a few hundred pages in a weekend.

No. And I abhor the thought of book burning. I suggest there are higher powers that want this to happen and they will play both sides against the other. These people don't care which side they support as long as they cause division and hate from both sides. Was this one supported by them? I don't know. But neither of these movements are grassroots.

Check out astroturfing.

Yeah, that's why I put the caveat at the top about the original source being very Left. I didn't want to cause anyone to faint if they clicked it from RS. Honestly I don't want to link to that guys social media. I'm sure people can find it. He's part of a group with hammer in the name. The other guy is a 3%.
