The SPLC reviews that Jason Kessler, the actual organizer associated with last Saturday’s white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, VA, happens to be a previous Occupy Wall Street protester as well as an Obama supporter.
The left-wing SPLC is usually overzealous in blaming hate groups, lumping legitimate traditional organizations along with actual extremists. Therefore the identification associated with Kessler’s left-wing roots is actually significant.
The actual SPLC informs:
Rumors are plentiful on white supremacy forums that Kessler’s ideological reputation before 2016 is a bit different. Rumors show his participation in the Occupy Wall Street movement as well as support for Obama.
During a talk, in favor of Charlottesville’s status of a sanctuary town, Kessler streamed himself being questioned by an attendee. He was stunned and apologized about an undisclosed fight during his apparent participation in the Occupy movement. Kessler was visibly disturbed by the woman’s presence as well as her reminding the public of his past involvements.
The statement goes on to express that Kessler’s white supremacy views only grew to become public within November 2016. Although, he states that his conversion from left-wing extremist to right-wing extremist started in 2013. This was when a PR expert made a racial joke and found out she was fired when she arrived home.
The driver that plowed through the crowd at the white supremacy event had mental issues
New reports show that James Alex Fields, a 20-year-old plowed his vehicle into a left wing protest. He killed one person and injured many others. The report shows that he was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child and had been given antipsychotic medicines. It is not crystal clear if he is still using them. It’s still not clear if he is a white supremacy advocate.
Occupy Wall Street was an extremist left-wing movement which began 6 years ago in New York and spread worldwide. Its main goal was to destroy the capitalist system and create chaos. Extreme confrontations with law enforcement were happening also during winter of 2011. Ex-President Obama, Media Matters for America, Nancy Pelosi, and numerous Democrats accepted the Occupy Wall Street cause.
