Prosecutors have described the Rise Above Movement as a militant white supremacist group that espouses anti-Semitic and other racist views and meets regularly to train in boxing and other fighting techniques.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, Rise Above Movement members believe they are fighting against a “modern world” corrupted by the “destructive cultural influences” of liberals, Jews, Muslims and non-white immigrants. Members refer to themselves as the mixed martial arts club of the “alt-right” fringe movement, a loose mix of neo-Nazis, white nationalists and other far-right extremists.

The leader of the Rise Above Movement (RAM) has been arrested at the LAX airport upon his return to the country. Two other members as well. These are the guys also behind the Charlottesville riots. It looks like the justice department is really serious about cracking down on hate crime and violence. Thumbs up for that.

It's interesting to me that the hatred once reserved only for Jews and Muslims now includes liberals. Only Jews and Muslims are a minority and liberals are half the country. To me that spells a possible civil war. Hope not.



In August 2017, they made their way to the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville with their hands taped, “ready to do street battle,” U.S. Attorney Thomas Cullen said at a news conference announcing the charges earlier this month.

Hundreds of white nationalists descended on Charlottesville in part to protest the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.


Things ain't looking so peachy for us, but it's never too late to start being nice to those around us.

Well, if they are far right and initiating chaos they should be arrested. Same with Antifa.

Agreed. Violence should be beneath us in the 21st century. We can do better than that.

I won’t subscribe and pay a dollar to read the Washington Post .

Their articles should be copied pasted in their entirety so everyone here can read them.

Oh and I despise white supremacists along with ANTIFA.

Thanks

R.A.M. (formerly DIY Division) has been involved in a TON of the political violence in California and beyond over the last couple years. I'd also correct the notion that they're "white supremacists" — they're actually neo-Nazis (and at least a couple of them are/have been Hammerskins). Most of them have criminal records, including for violent offenses. The seem really big on the idea that Jews are trying to destroy the West with drugs. Oh, and they train in MMA in preparation for their political hooliganism.

I've been trying to draw attention to this for years (some examples: here, here, here, here and thread: How a Violent Alt-Light "Hero" Turned His Back on Neo-Nazis)

Video from a ProPublica piece some months back:



And here's a post where I discuss briefly how some of these assholes are connected to the Deploraball clique on social media. This bunch is particularly tight with Irma & Juan (who are from California).

There are a number of reasons that I don't like Jack Posobiec. You should be weary of him because he has a lengthy history of being part of a small cadre of Trumpverse personalities who have sneaked white nationalists and neo-Nazis into the ranks of Trump supporters.




You already know that Baked Alaska is pals with all these assholes. You know that he was at the first Unite the Right in Charlottesville, chanting "blood and soil" with a bunch of neo-Nazis. You've probably seen him on video talking about the "14 words."



Irma was part of Latinos With Trump. She and her bf, former Proud Boy Juan "Johnny Benitez" Cadavid, are good friends with literal neo-Nazis. Specifically, they're associates of the California-based neo-Nazi group, R.A.M which is basically a bunch of neo-Nazi thugs who do MMA style training to street brawl at protests.




And for a bonus, Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman, Proud Boy thug LARPer, fighting alongside Nathan Damigo, founder of Identity Evropa and Robert Boman, one of the founders of R.A.M., at the "Battle for Berkeley" in 2016.



Ironically, Juan got kicked out of the Proud Boys (supposedly because of his association with neo-Nazis) but Chapman and others were not and last I cared to look, there was a bunch of beef and "Based Skywalker" was up in arms about what a "manipulator" Juan was and challenging him to a public MMA match with a $1000 prize (you can't make this # up).

My point here is that Jack and his pals (including Cernovich and that whole #MAGA3X bunch) cozied up the Alt-Right before the election. Some of them like Cernovich had a change of heart shortly thereafter and others did not.

Jack can pretend all he wants that "the media" did this or that but the reality is his lying, hoaxing, plagiarizing ass was more than happy to have these people around when it was convenient and his little clique facilitated their rise in social media profile and popularity.

Also, it's pretty ironic that Jack got fired from The Rebel for plagiarizing Jason Kessler, organizer of Unite the Right.

Think about the hypocrisy of that. He liked Kessler's shtick so much that he ripped it off and tried to pass it off as his own. If these racist assholes haven't gotten more popular, it's not for any lack of Jack's efforts and those of his friends.

From where I stand, he's at best a sympathizer.


These folks can be found in *a lot* of the well publicized West Coast clashes between Antifa and "Trump supporters." (Berkeley, Huntington Beach, etc).

Ugh... When I hear someone being called a racist I hear patriot. The term racist has become a compliment because anyone who uses that word 9/10 it's a misdiagnosis and the person using that word is a fool.

All hate filled scum should be arrested. Good thing Republicans call out violent scum, let's hope Democrats start to.

Yes. Many on the left define racist as anyone who isn't a Democrat.

Do you realize how ridiculous it sounds to be trying to connect Latinos with a white supremecist or neo-Nazi group? It deflates the entire argument.

Put the screws to them.

Assholes should be free to be assholes...until they cross that line.
