If there’s one thing RFK Jr’s supporters were adamant about– it was that the “mainstream media” lies, while RFK Jr tells the truth. On the flip side was Shiva Ayyadurai For President and his volunteers who insisted *everything* RFK said was a lie.
At the center of the dispute: VACCINES
Shiva’s crew were getting in the faces of Kennedy supporters outside the Park Plaza Hotel to play a clip of Kennedy saying he was pro-vaccine. Though the clip certainly exists, Kennedy’s supporters seemed mostly un-phased by the clip or the Shiva Campaign.
What was most alarming was that Shiva’s group of volunteers was lead by John Medlar, a violent Proudboy who instigated a riot at a “Resist Marxism” rally in 2018. Shiva himself took part in some of the rallies organized by Medlar, and is a regular guest on Alex Jones’ InfoWars. Ironically, despite the violent history of Shiva’s staff (who punched me in the head at a rally in 2021), Shiva eventually resorted (yesterday) to the false claim that I had pepper-sprayed him– a lie which he demonstrated he had no recollection of himself.
Yesterday, I went to get coverage of the Ron Desantis rally in Manchester, NH. I was able to get some great interviews with both lefties and conservatives outside of the DoubleTree Hotel where the event took place. However, when I sat down on a park bench near the building to look at my footage, I was warned by staff that I couldn’t come in. I asked why not, and they said it was because I had a camera. Since it was an extremely hot day, I told them I was hoping to purchase a cold drink. The staff member told me that as a paying customer that that would be permissible, so long as I didn’t film. I didn’t film— but just the same, security came to kick me out– at which point I did start filming.
That was at 3:17 PM.
My rule is to give every candidate a fair chance to say what they have to say, and respond in a kind and considerate manner until they give me a reason not to. Kicking me out of a political event for having a camera is antithetical to the first amendment and the general spirit of the political process. Accordingly— as Ron Desantis was leaving the Double Tree, I decided to protest Ron Desantis’ new abortion law with the satirical chant of “RAPISTS FOR RON.”
“RAPISTS FOR RON” is in reference to Ron’s new legislation which bans abortion past six weeks with exceptions on rape and incest at fifteen weeks. In those cases, a woman is required to present documentation of her rape.
At 8:13 PM, black SUVs began driving recklessly out of the parking lot on the Pleasant Street side of the building. A man in the passenger seat of the very last car before the police car in the rear threw a can of Red Bull at my head. I didn’t know that that’s what it was at the time, because frankly I was just stunned. The Manchester Police were a part of that motorcade and did nothing to stop the assault from taking place, and made no attempts to arrest the assailant. In fact, Manchester PD appeared to be giving the criminals an escort. The police also did not respond when I cried for help.
I immediately went to the Manchester Police station to report the crimes. Officer John Whiteman took down the report.
Afterwards, I went back to the scene of the crime to see what I had been hit with. It was a can of Red Bull. I went back to the police station to submit the Red Bull as evidence, at which point, I received an icy, if not hostile reception from Whiteman (and one other officer with him). Whiteman insisted that because I was in the road it might not be a crime. This is an utterly terrible interpretation of the law.
Even if a judge, jury or fact-finder agreed with his assertion, it is immaterial to the provable fact that an employee of Mr. Desantis intentionally threw a can of Red Bull at a citizen from a moving vehicle. Moreover, the drivers in the motorcade were clearly driving to endanger. There is no conceivable excuse for any of these actions.
If the City of Manchester is to be perceived to have any legitimacy whatsoever, it is incumbent upon officials to find the lawbreakers (who were themselves escorted by law enforcement), and hold them accountable.
Staff for Republican candidates have been engaging in violence since I began attending the NH primaries in 2015, so it’s nothing new. I was attacked by Trump staff and Manchester PD in 2015. I sued them both without a lawyer, and both of them settled. Trump for $20k. Manchester PD for $15k.
This behavior is offensive and deleterious to the fabric of the political process, and the public should know.
Boston has a Nazi problem. And to compound the problem, they also have a cop problem. The issue is that a good many police officers in command positions are sympathetic to self-identifying neo-nazis like NSC-131 who have been attacking people around the city whenever they get a chance. When cops turn a blind eye to the violent proclivities of fascist street gangs, they effectively deputize them as brownshirts. Media outlets which fail to correctly identify this problem in their reporting then function as propaganda outlets for the neo-nazis.
Well– Earlier today, I made the mistake of speaking to a reporter from WGBH regarding NSC-131 in relation to “efforts to keep them from showing up [at the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade] this year.” I must apologize for having done so. Somehow I thought he would get the story right– but he failed miserably– instead, writing a horrible piece of pro-cop propaganda. The cops are not the solution, they are integral to the problem.
In light of this, this is what I actually wrote:
As long as the City of Boston insists on continuing their charade by prosecuting *me* after NSC-131 attacked me, all this talk by City Officials is lip service, and I take their statements about trying to stamp out the Neo-Nazi problem with zero degree of seriousness. That’s putting it mildly.
Let’s not forget the City of Boston (in tandem with the FBI) put forward at least five grand juries to try to intimidate Lauren and I trying to silence us and our film. They subpoenad our text messages from Facebook. They harassed friends and family on at least 20 occasions, and they cost us a small fortune in lawyer’s fees.
Let’s also not forget that the BPD lawlessly attacked me at Straight Pride for doing nothing other than filming, and I’m dealing with that for the fifth year. There’s a federal lawsuit ongoing, and the City has filed extension after extension rather than just doing the right thing and offering to settle.
Hood’s gang attacked me in July, and to thank me, Officer Hughes (an officer with a lengthy internal ffairs record, and a record of violence and racial bias) pushed me down a flight of stairs and falsely charged me with “assault and battery on a police officer.” Why does he still have a job? Why do any of the other officers in the Straight Pride case still have a job?
The prosecutors in the stair case case provided my lawyer Murat Erkan with around 75 body camera videos. Zero videos recorded the incident in question, despite it being city policy to do so in this kind of situation. Officer Hughes perjured himself multiple times in his affidavit, and Judge Coffee had to recuse herself because we discovered body camera footage of her and the officer in question colluding on the day in question.
These are not the actions of a City which has good intentions in mind. This is a City in the midst of a cover-up.
The City of Boston should be utterly ashamed of itself.
We live in a clown world made of clown people. It is not the first, nor it is the last time that I will point this out.
But, this latest press release by New Hampshire Attorney General Johnny Formella has got to take the cake. Formella dropped his complaint on wax “against” the Neo-Nazis NSC-131 and their leaders Chris Hood and Leo Cullinan on January 17th. I am making sarcasm quotation marks, because Formella is a conservative who seems to have constructed the legal complaint in a such a way so that it would have no teeth, serving only to publicize the efforts of the neo-Nazis and allow them to fundraise based on the persecution which they can ow ascribe to the conservative AG.
If this clown Johnny Formella had half a brain, there’s plenty of actual New Hampshire crimes NSC have committed which he could actually charge them with. Not for nothing, but Cullinan is a convicted felon who did seven years in jail for stealing a gun which was used to do a murder.
How can this clown AG be “fighting” white supremacists if he is unwilling to follow up on their easily provable crimes?
In this video, observe NSC-131’s Leo Cullinan running around with his buddy Chris Hood attacking people and smashing their cars in broad daylight.
Nate Thayer was a friend, journalist, anti-fascist and all around great guy. Nate and I had been linked on social media for a few go-rounds of the sun, but in the past year became truly great friends in real life. Since we met, I’ve spent countless hours chatting with Nate– taking trips to the beach, or sometimes just singing songs on his Dad’s old guitar– much of the time, with Lauren Pespisa. We’ve helped Nate move twice, and talked on the phone almost every other day.
Sadly, Nate has passed.
Nate and I met in person because the proverbial bat-signal was sent out that an anti-fascist journalist in the area was sick and couldn’t get his medication, and in immediate need of help. At that time, all I knew about him were his occasional inquiries about the local neo-nazis, to which I’d happily respond. On that alone, I got in the car and made the two-and-half-plus hour trek to Wellfleet/ Cape Cod. Nate didn’t immediately come to the door– but once I managed to get him out of bed, we hopped in the car with his beloved dog Lamont, and we drove to the pharmacy. The meds made him projectile-vomiting-sick, and as he twisted and turned descending into his fever dream, the most extraordinary stories– (spoken in a state of half-consciousness) began to flow out of him. I wasn’t even sure at that time if any of it was real.
The following day, I drove back down to check on Nate again, I asked about the crazy stories he was shouting as he was falling asleep. As it turns out, Nate had spent 15 years in the jungle tracking down Pol Pot, the Cambodian dictator responsible for the Cambodian genocide which took the lives of millions. Nate not only confronted Pot regarding the genocide at Pot’s show trial, he did the same with 15 top Khmer Rouge leadership including Ta Mok, otherwise known as “The Butcher.”
Being a documentarian, I asked if there had ever been a film made about it. I then got to hear how Nate had turned down an offer of a million dollars from Rupert Murdoch, choosing instead to let Ted Koppel and ABC News tell his story for $350 thousand. While he was still in the Far East, Nate got a call from Koppel saying Nate had been awarded the Peabody. But ABC not only never paid him his $350k, they went against their agreement regarding photo rights. Nate told Koppel “fuck you,” and refused the award— the first time in the Peabody’s history. Nate put forward a lawsuit on principle, and was awarded 1.2 million dollars. Nate was approached by Oliver Stone, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who all wanted to tell his story. He turned them all down, saying his articles and his book was good enough.
In the past couple of months, Nate started having trouble using his hands making it hard to type, and he asked Lauren and I to start recording his stories. We did– mostly just on audio. But in the last while, he asked us to put him on camera, and I started making animations to use as visuals to go with Nate’s words. He was struggling so hard in the end. He kept telling me he has so much more to say that he needed to get out. I’m so angry there wasn’t more time to help him do that.
I guess I’m just glad I got to be there to share the time that we had.
Lamont is warm and safe and well fed. And now it’s time to take him for a walk.
As suspected, Captain Johnson Huge (who pushed me down the stairs and charged ME with assaulting and battering him) has a huge Internal Affairs file which includes allegations of excessive force, racial profiling and neglect of duty.
Yesterday I filed lawsuit against the Boston Police Department (and related individuals and entities).
The following was my release to the press:
Greetings to the members of the Boston Press/ Media. Within the hour I will be filing my lawsuit against the Boston Police Department and the City of Boston at UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse. It is my belief that this legal action is necessary to curb the bad behavior of Boston Police and City Officials as it pertains to their sympathy toward violent hate groups in the area. The brief at hand focuses on the false arrests surrounding the 2019 Straight Pride Parade. For some background information on my litigation experience, please see the New York Times article regarding my successful lawsuit against The Trump Campaign, The Manchester NH Police and a former FBI agent in the employment of Donald Trump. Attached is a copy of the Complaint, as well as some photos related to more recent incidents as a reminder of what’s at stake.
I plan to be at the courthouse around noon to answer any questions.
So, maybe you tried your hand at clown school and after a semester decided that you would try your hand at this journalism thing. The pay isn’t great, but these days the two professions are practically indistinguishable— So, why not?
Maybe this new career path resulted in you getting assigned to the “movie reviews” department at The Guardian or Esquire, and maybe they asked you to review “Running with the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee.” Well— Maybe your semester at clown school didn’t prepare you for all the reading and research and talking to primary sources which would’ve helped in composing a story which had a semblance of being grounded in reality.
If this describes you, you’re not alone. There are tens of thousands of people who self-identify as journalists, who have found their way to the profession after realizing they couldn’t cut it in the hard-knocks world of clowning. These so-called journalists (like Laura Martin from Esquire) have been writing about the film– somehow without having watched it. The film thoroughly debunks the decade-old’s smear of Rocco Castoro, which falsely claims that he leaked geodata in a photo of he and McAfee, while embedded with McAfee as a journalist for VICE. And yet, Martin insists on repeating these claims– apparently because she wants to go back to clown school.
If you’re just a regular movie fan, or have an interest in McAfee, there is an antidote to the sea of disinformation on the topic flowing like raw sewage through the streets.
Castoro, (with the help of producer Emily Molli), has got a podcast called “Devil in the Details: Running with John McAfee.” Admittedly, I’m responsible for some of the artwork related to the show— so fuck me and my biased opinion. That said, Rocco’s wit, insight and investigative prowess are unmatched by any of the clown-school-dropouts in the corporate press. Give it a listen, or I will send Rocco to your house to mock you to your face. We know where you live, Bozos!
It’s been a weird one. This whole goddam week Lauren Pespisa and I have been up to our neck in Neo-Nazis, Badge-wearing cannibals and the bootlicking shit-libs in the Corporate Media. For those wondering how the country has managed to firmly bite into this ghastly Neo-nazi sandwich, we must unfortunately spend a minute trying to understand what’s making this ticking time-bomb tick.
Patriot Front— (as many have pointed out), are the new Klan… but dressed in khakis.
The thing is— listening to Patriot Front’s Tommy Rousseau on The People’s Square podcast, he sounds less like David Duke and more like a self-help guru reaching out to overweight boys trying to get laid. To be sure, he wants white folks to position themselves to “reclaim” America” as you see all over their t-shirts. Yet, hearing Tommy speak to his actual pre-pubescent followers, he’s pretty much just promising incels that Good Ol’ Tommy will find you a lady-friend… if you join up with his horrible racist incel fraternity.
In short, he’s a dickhead.
Somewhere around an hour and a half into the unbearable podcast, Rousseau says, “I certainly think that when you look at history there are moments of severe change, right. Where things come to a certain crescendo— and depending on where you are, that is either emergency or opportunity— depending on exactly what it is. And we need to make sure that we are in a position as organizers— as people exulting an ideal— [the dickhead ideal] that should some great moment of change arrive, whether that is economic collapse or that is something good, we are in a position to make that an opportunity to help. When the state becomes absent in the lives of our people, because they no longer have money to feed their armies of petty tyrants, then there is an opportunity for us to rush into that fold and reassert a semblance of peace and prosperity in the lives of those people they have left behind.”
Ooh!! What a fun way to get yourself on a federal watchlist, and ensure that you are absolutely unemployable for the remainder of your days.
Terrorist Tom continues, “As this government— (specifically the police) gives more and more money, and more and more interest to these petty political back-and-forths, what they’re leaving behind is the actual civic structure which is now ripe for re-conquest. It is open for the taking, and all we have to do is create revolutionary spaces that can be poised to leap further and further up the ladder of legitimacy until it is us who are exercising more legitimacy than the state itself.”
After an hour and a half of pointless neo-Nazi rambling, the show’s host, (Borzoi) starts running out of things to say, so proceeds to taking questions from the audience. A viewer asks, “Just wondering what are some of the fitness requirements to join Patriot Front?”
Tommy replies, “To join, the fitness requirement is that you are willing and able to improve and to be open to training regularly. You do not have to be a certain weight…” Yadda yadda… “We only ask that you’re open to improvement.”
He blathers about sit-ups and crunches but ultimately asks the viewers to join in his, “lifestyle of fitness and progression.”
Well, whoopty do! I’ll have a plate full of remedial incel-cakes for an appetizer… and I’ll the CUCKGASM for the main course, Garçon!
Borzoi chimes in to add to the self-help talk. “This actually will improve your life. If you’re a guy in your twenties in America, more times than not, you’re gonna be sort of depressed and frankly hard up for women in some cases. The incel thing is a huge problem. And there are some characters out there who try to— we all know they are— that actually try to keep their members as incels because they’re easier to manipulate.”
Because of course, manipulation— They’re saying it to their followers faces.
Borzoi continues, “But if you join Patriot Front and get on their exercise regiment, and you get fit— 1: You’re gonna have more confidence in yourself as a man in your physical strength, and whether you can win a fight, protect your families— things like that. And 2: You’re gonna feel better when you lose weight and get fit. You’re going to get more attention from women and girls— I mean it’s sad if you wanna say it sad— they’re just going to respect you more in your day-to-day life.”
So, this seems to be the onboarding process in a nutshell.
Let me wash out my eyes and ears with bleach.
This brings us to the Fourth of July weekend in Boston, Massachusetts. For those looking to celebrate the colonization of the United States, Boston has always been the obvious choice if you want to jizz hard on a jingoistic monument to a Founding Father.
Having learned from the Idaho arrests, the incels rode the train into the City, then had someone drop off their toy shields with the U-Haul. They marched from Haymarket, to Copley Plaza, to Back Bay Station. Somewhere around Copley Square, they got into the scrum with Charles Murrell III. (That aspect has been told many times already in the press.)
When Patriot Front got to Back Bay, they went to drop off their bullshit in the U-Haul, where they were photographed with Special Agent Steve Kimball of the FBI who decided to inspect their super-soakers and other LARPing supplies. I immediately recognized Kimball, and reported it on Twitter.
Lauren and I made it to Back Bay moments after they had gotten on the train to Oak Grove Station in Malden. A conductor alerted us of the massive police presence and said “the Nazis headed out to Oak Grove.” So, we hopped in our car and went to Oak Grove.
When we arrived at the station, there was again a massive contingent of the Donut Lords in Blue— with both marked and unmarked cars, which we filmed and posted to Twitter. A transit cop at one point put down her pastry to ask what we were doing. This made sense, since we were carrying a sign that said, “FCK NZIS.” She then explained to us that the CHUD train had been delayed at the Community College stop. A Statie approached us and told us the same. It was clear that this was Patriot Front’s stop and their cars were nearby. So, I went out to the parking lot and the street and documented all of the license plates. The whole sordid operation had law enforcement all over it.
Patriot Front came out the doors around forty minutes later— and they wasted no time assaulting me as they tried to push by. Rather than take the shitlords into custody, the Police gave them an escort.
What choice did we have but to heckle them good?
One of my favorites was sung to the tune of Black Sabbath’s Iron Man. “I am Iron cuck. Nanananana, we’ll never f*ck. Can you ever get laid, no no no, unless you paid.” I was then approached by an unmasked Patriot Front member who we later discover to be Paul Gancarz. He introduced himself as “Butt-for” Continuing along with his juvenile sensibilities I used Beavis voice and said, “Hey Butthead, your drummer really sucked today Butthead.” He replied, “well you know drummers. Can you do complex meters in an odd time?”
At this moment the entire Patriot Front mutt pack burst into a full-on sprint trying to make it to their cars to cover up their license plates. I gave chase on foot mocking them, “RUN AWAY COWARDS!! RUN AWAY!!”
When they got to their cars, they sheepishly covered the plates, but I taunted them once again telling them I’d recorded the plates before they got there, later proving that several of them had driven from out of state in their cars, many of which have now been IDed.
Three days later at the July 5th press conference, Superintendent-in-Chief Dick Long blatantly lied to the public claiming there was no advance knowledge of Patriot Front’s activities. When a reporter questioned him about the assaults, Long claimed that no police had witnessed them. Having been assaulted myself, I vociferously lodged my complaint. Massachusetts US Attorney Rachael Rollins then butted in saying that they couldn’t do anything to investigate Patriot Front in my case because they didn’t have jurisdiction over Malden, (where my assault occurred). Rollins repeatedly invoked the phrase, “this is Boston.” It was a phrase which rang hollow since Mayor Wu had given an eloquent speech saying that, “Boston must be the leading light.”
Indeed, not only had the Mayor spoken empty platitudes, but The FBI/ JTTF and other officials claimed how they had worked to coordinate on a federal, state and local level. Federal officials have jurisdiction everywhere. Malden is not the Sovereign Kingdom of Narnia. And this made it all the more appropriate that I made it known that Boston Police were lying when they said they didn’t witness the assaults.
As the festivities were winding down, I even went so far as to remind FBI Special Agent Joseph Bonavolonta (with the JTTF) that he was full of sh*t. I wasn’t wrong.
The video shows that this was a press conference full of propagandists. As predicted, uniformed Boston cops were on scene and clearly witnessed the interaction with Murrell. Agents known for long harassing leftie activists were seen galavanting with Patriot Front. Those agents are Agent Steve Kimble of the FBI and Agent Andy Creed of the JTTF. In leaked documents, Creed was found to be collaborating with Northeast White Pride in 2011— so, no surprise. To be clear, I don’t subscribe to the idea that the FBI created Patriot Front— just that they sympathize.
Also— that they lied.
Corporate media took the bait and sold that story hook line and sinker, while treating me as a pariah.
