The wackjobs were back at it again at PSU, where the Northwest Regional Animal Liberation Forum took place on Feb. 7th.

Among the sponsoring groups were Student Animal Liberation Coalition, Portland Vegans Of Color, Resistance Ecology, Portland Animal Liberation, No New Animal Lab, Cascadia Animal Rights Alliance, Civil Liberties Defense Center, Portland Animal Welfare Advocates, Vancouver Animal Defense League, Free The Oregon Zoo Elephants, and Wildlife Defense League.

Presentation workshops included Anti-Oppression Training, Vegans Of Color Only Discussion Space (see video below of non-colored person ejected), Know Your Rights & Security Culture Basics, and Researching Targets. Also included in the program was a map of the “gender neutral” bathrooms in the area. After the forum they put a plan into action to protest at the home of a Skanska executive. Skanska is the construction company that has been contracted to build a new animal lab at the University Of Washington.

Videographer Daylight Disinfectant was on hand for some of the forum, and brings us these videos:

A cow character in one of the Power Point presentations asks “Who has more social power than you?”

This presenter poses the question “What kind of an asshole would eat a lamb?”

And here are the “all-inclusive” revolutionaries ejecting someone based on race from the “Vegans Of Color” presentation at a public event on a public university campus.

Communist Black Panther Gives MLK Week Keynote At PSU

10940545_10153061311788872_1487052088483149498_nPortland State University recently hosted Angela Davis, a renowned Black Panther and former 2 time Communist Party USA nominee for Vice President. Ms. Davis had the honor of giving the keynote address during the university’s MLK Week.

In a video posted by LaughingAtLiberals, her speech including sympathizing with the Charlie Hebdo shooters by saying “It is so sad to see that the use of the term “terrorist”, which reminds me of the way communist used to be used, spreads such fear in people’s hearts…To ask questions about those young men who did that horrible thing in Paris. But what kind of lives were they living? No one talks about the conditions under which they live, in the ghettos surrounding Paris. People don’t like to talk about French racism. Seems to me like we have to be willing to look at the entire story and not simply use the word “terrorism.”

She goes on to say “We have a serious problem with gun violence in this country… So I think we really should disarm everyone. That also means disarming the police.”

Ms. Davis was an active Black Panther in the 1960’s and 70’s, and was once on the FBI’s top 10 Most Wanted list for her role in supplying guns that were used in a Marin County court room hostage situation. She was eventually acquitted of all charges.

In 1979, the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union awarded her the “Lenin Peace Prize“, and she was invited to Moscow to accept the award.

This isn’t the first time Ms. Davis has created controversy at a university. Just last year UCLA students were in an uproar over her inclusion in a “We, The Optimists” campaign.

Hilarious: Wacky Animal Rights Protesters Tossed From Store After Meat Dept. Protest (Video)

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 5.13.36 PMYou may remember the story from a few weeks ago, where the group Direct Action Everywhere talked about “queer animal liberation” and ending “human supremacy.”

Well, that was only the tip of the iceberg for these wackjobs.

One of their primary tactics, apparently, is to storm a grocery store or restaurant and stage mini protests, where they shout and hold cute little signs. The typical reaction is as follows, where the employees and customers just get angry with the protesters and run them out, and the protest fails to accomplish anything other than making themselves look like wackjobs.

In a separate incident, activists in Eugene, OR pulled a similar stunt at a Chipotle Grill, and it was met with peeved customers, with no one being sympathetic to the protest.

CHAOS ERUPTS As #Ferguson Protesters Shut Down Sen. Wyden Town Hall – Threaten to Beat Security Guard (VIDEO)

vlcsnap-2015-01-04-01h43m40s224Senator Ron Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) attempted to hold a town hall in Portland, OR, on Saturday, January 3rd. Ferguson “I Can’t Breathe” protesters, together with the $15 Now! communists, busted through the event, even threatening to punch safety officers who were trying to shut the doors, and took over the whole town hall.

According to the Oregonian, Wyden and his staffers fled the town hall, along with many of the attendees.

vlcsnap-2015-01-04-01h39m52s251LaughingAtLiberals posted the videos on YouTube:

The *peaceful* Ferguson protesters threaten to punch a public safety officer at a Senator Ron Wyden town hall, as the protesters started to flood the room. They find another door that someone opens for them, and complete chaos erupts inside, as the protesters take over the town hall and proclaim “It’s our town hall now!”

“”The gangs are this man right here!” shouted one of the protesters, as she pointed to Senator Ron Wyden at a Portland town hall.

“We’re just gunna take over this town hall right now” they say, after Wyden offers to let them speak early at the event. They start to shout their normal stuff, people in the crowd start to heckle the protesters, and one of them shouts back, “respect our cause!” They somehow link the Ferguson/Michael Brown/Eric Garner/Tamir Rice/I Can’t Breath movement to the $15 Now! minimum wage movement.

Other folks were there to protest the Trans Pacific Partnership, but those folks were quickly attacked as the Ferguson protesters say “You’re being rude and interrupting”. “You’re showing hatred” they say to another person who attempted to quell the madness. “We’re taking over the town hall now. It’s our town hall. It belongs to the black people.” “

Topless Feminist Steals Baby Jesus From Vatican Nativity Display

Screen Shot 2014-12-25 at 9.54.27 PM

After shoving crosses up their butts last month, the militant feminist group known as FEMEN have staged yet another “protest”. This time, one of their members stormed the Vatican nativity scene on Christmas day and tried to kidnap the baby Jesus.

From the FEMEN webpage:

FEMEN sextremist kidnapped a newborn baby in Vatican. FEMEN opens a hunt for the Bethlehem babies under anticlerical campaign “Massacre of the Innocents”. The campaign is dedicated to the criticism of the senturies-old Vatican stance on women’s rights for own body and reproductive function. The maniacal desire to control women’s fertility is a common trait of many religions, National Socialism, nationalism and other antediluvian, anti-humanist ideologies.”

Screen Shot 2014-12-25 at 9.59.46 PMAccording to Global News.ca, the activist was the head of FEMEN, Inna Shevchenko. She had “God Is Woman” written across her chest and stomach, and shouted that phrase as Vatican guards arrested her.

The Portland, OR branch of the All African People’s Revolutionary Party held an event at Portland’s Center For Intercultural Organizing. The AAPRP puts on several events and organizes in communities, but this time, the event was specifically “blacks only”. No whites, no Asians, no latinos/latinas, no natives… Only “for all who identify as being of African descent“.

The Center For Intercultural Organizing is a 501(c)3 non profit. According to Guidestar.org, the organization is heavily dependent on government grants. From 2010 through 2012, they received a total of $434,012.86 in “government grants”. In 2009, they filed the EZ version of the 990, which does not separate government grants from private grants, contributions, or gifts, so it’s hard to say how much of the $124,756.09 from that year’s revenue came from the feds.

Data on guidestar does not go back further than 2009, but the Center For Intercultural Organizing has existed since 2003. No telling how much they received from the government for those missing 6 years.

 

Just to clarify who is welcome and who is not welcome.

The head of the Portland branch of the AAPRP can be seen in several YouTube videos promoting socialism and Che-like revolution, and spouting anti-American, and anti-capitalist views.

#Ferguson Protesters Disrupt Mall Of America Shoppers

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 3.29.38 AM

From Kare 11 in Minneapolis:

“About 10 minutes into the protest, a warning that the demonstration “is not authorized and is in clear violation of Mall of America policy” was announced over the loudspeaker and displayed on a large screen in the rotunda. The warning asked participants to disperse and stated that those who continued to demonstrate could be arrested.

Mall officials shut down all of the escalators in the rotunda, and some stores in the area closed their gates. The Mall of America enhanced security, and police in riot gear were present.”

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 3.12.49 AMThe mall, which is private property, relayed to police that they wanted the protesters gone. They attempted to announce this to the protesters, but the crowd began booing so loud that the message could not be heard.

Stores lowered the gates, and hundreds, if not thousands, of holiday shoppers found a reason to hate the protesters.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 3.28.06 AMAbout 20 people were arrested, and most of the crowd left, shortly after staging a “die in”, which is becoming common place at these protests.

VIDEO: Anarchist Organizer Reveals WTO Riot Tactics

Lisa Fithian, collective anarchist organizer.

Portland State University hosted well known AnCom community organizer Lisa Fithian on Feb. 17th, 2014. The event was entitled “Building Our Power: Organizing For The Long Haul“,  presented by the PSU Student Union and the group Students For Unity.

The program centered around direct action, which is sometimes referred to “non violent direct action” (*wink wink*, yeah right), and Miss Fithian went over numerous tactics that she has developed and employed over the years.

One such successful strategy was the way the 1999 Seattle WTO protests/riots were staged. Seattle was divided into “spokes” on a map, and several different “affinity groups” took responsibility for organizing their own protest in each spokes area, separate from every other group. No one knew what any other group had planned, all they knew is that ever sector of the city would have an action of some sort taking place. This made it impossible for police to find out exactly what was going to happen, because there was no master plan.

In the video, posted on YouTube by LaughingAtLiberals, Miss Fithian goes on to explain how they also had roving groups of people who could add bodies to any spokes area when needed.

From the Facebook event page:

Lisa Fithian has been working for nonviolent social change since the mid-1970’s. Over the years she has been a student, labor and community organizer on a broad range of issues. From environmental justice to student and worker rights, from peace and global justice to immigration and housing, Lisa continues to use a wide range of strategies and tactics and encouraged nonviolent direct action as one of the most effective strategies for change. Most recently, Lisa trained hundreds of people on facilitation, group process, consensus decision-making, and direct action during Occupy, and was instrumental in helping OWS take the horizontal shape that it did.

Lisa will be speaking about her experiences working in coalitions, how to build unity between diverse groups organizing for power together, and building durable, non-oppressive structures for that empowerment.“

Miss Lisa Fithian has also been seen in a video from the Chicago Teachers Union strike, orchestrating who is going to get arrested at a demo. Fithian was also caught calling conservative journalists “violent” at trainings for the #Ferguson protests.
