Peaceful March on Google, postponed after Alt Left threats

I mentioned last Thursday (before Charlottesville) that a 9-city March on Google was planned for Aug 19. Just to follow up, it’s postponed:

The Peaceful March on Google has been postponed due to credible Alt Left terrorist threats for the safety of our citizen participants.

Despite our clear and straightfoward statements denouncing bigotry and hatred, CNN and other mainstream media made malicious and false statements that our peaceful march was being organized by Nazi sympathizers.

Following the articles, credible threats from known Alt Left terrorist groups [were received]…

We hope to hold our peaceful march in a few weeks’ time.

We look forward to the day when the human right of peaceful Free Speech is once again able to be practiced in America.

Addendum about the march’s organizers:

I mentioned earlier that they are “known to be pro-peace, anti-racist and anti-Alt Right”. Here’s the skinny on that.

  • The main organizer is Jack Posobiec.
  • He got a bit of web site help from Mike Cernovich.
  • Back in 2016, each man more-than-parted with the “Alt Right”, on realizing that the label had been taken over by racists like Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler.
  • Worried about racist infiltrators, Cernovich specifically excluded Alt Righters from the DeploraBall in January (and featured Posobiec).
  • In June, Posobiec held a Rally for Peace that specifically excluded Alt Righters (and featured Cernovich).
  • The rally was a mile away from a different one, that Richard Spencer was at, and that Posobiec dropped out of when he was horrified to learn of Spencer being around.
  • FWIW, both men are the target of death threats from both Alt Right and Alt Left.

I think that, in the last week, it has become official that the term “Alt Right” means only the racist, #WhiteLivesMatter types. Terms evolve, or sometimes devolve. It’s much too late to recover the term “Alt Right” for better people. Which is OK; let the #WhiteLivesMatter douches have it.

  1. First –
    What exactly is going to prevent #WLM and Antifa from smearing whatever new group pops up as Nazis?

    Isn’t that what they are doing here to this protest?

    It appears to me that all it takes for the left (and apparently the right) to smear people as Nazis is Antifa claiming they are Nazis. As soon as the accusation is made, it is accepted as Truth and the target denounced and anyone who defends them gets smeared.

  2. Christina – Yes. I think the real problem with the Peaceful March on Google is logistical. In a sane world, it should be easy to say “We’re marching. Show up at this time and place.” But once the Alt Left comes in and makes terrorist threats, you reeeeaaally have to co-ordinate with local authorities and I don’t think they could get that done in a week, for 9 cities.

    Hopefully, Jack means what he says about doing the march this fall. Likewise Milo, with his planned Berkeley free speech event. I’ll try to do updates on both.

  3. Christina’s absolutely right. It doesn’t matter what anyone actually is these days, it’s what they are tagged with being. So that as soon as the Scarlet Letter is applied, it sticks.

    Jack Posobiec’s problem is that any thumbnail bio of him invariably contains the phrase “promoter of ‘Pizzagate’ a debunked conspiracy theory involving members of the Hillary Clinton campaign and DC ‘establishment'”. That is basically his domestic violence conviction in a world in which the question “Have you stopped beating your girlfriend yet?” is asked at every media opportunity. Or, put another way, it’s his “grab them by the pu**y” controversy.

  4. We live in a world of “gotcha” shaming and tribal madness. All that Jack or anybody can do, is move on / learn / keep doing interesting content and good actions. Jack and Mike both do.

    Yesterday I listened to a podcast that Foreign Policy magazine folks (Establishment journalists) did with Cernovich. By the end, they were eating out of his hand. He charmed them by being thoughtful and genuine. (Which he often is.)

  5. I don’t think they could get that done in a week, for 9 cities.

    There also doesn’t seem to be a great deal of organization or coordination involving the protests. I’ve noticed that the blog posts have comments asking things like “Where are we meeting in [X, Y, or Z community]? If you are going to confirm locations for an event, you need to have coordinators in all the locations (and some degree of vetting for same—more vetting than the left usually does for similar events) and then you need to be able to direct people to a location where they can find out the information. No one should be reduced to inquiring via a comments section on a blog announcement four days prior to an event what the basic details are. This is even more important now that any leftist protest or response seems to have pre-printed and distributed materials and props as well as a predefined format (presumably funded by a generous donor/s who just wants to help some kids get their message out).

    In any event it was smart to postpone, regardless of the any threats, real or perceived.

  6. Or they could issue a statement that they will lawfully carry during the peaceful march. The police and government can do their job or not.

  7. Please call your elected officials (and others even if they’re not your senator or congressman) to urge them to put the assault against free speech front and center. It needs to become a central issue and I hear very few in DC talking about it. This is no longer about hypotheticals. Our voices are being silenced. It’s no longer that we might enter this dangerous territory. We have entered it and it should raise the hair on the back of everyone’s necks to realize what is unfolding right before our eyes. No tanks are rolling through the streets. Instead tech fascism has arrived and we are in dangerous dangerous waters.

  8. This is how they’ve been able to get Milo’s (and others) appearance banned several times too, btw.

    Who are the intolerants, again?

  9. There is no alt-left. Ever since Charlottesville, the Democrat Left has been openly supportive of Antifa and its violent tactics.

  10. Lol
    I think we all the Misogynist Rights March on Google was destined to be cancelled the moment it was proposed. Like most of the alt right stunts

    [mike’s inner monologue: They’re not buying the “Raaaaaaaysist!” accusation any more. I know! I’ll change it up. It’s time for “Misogynist!”

    everyone else’s inner monologue: Eyeroll
    –ILC]

    Reminder Posobiec is the same nut job who faked the “rape melania” sign

    [This is false, period. In other words, someone made it up to blame Jack Posobiec. He was investigated and cleared by the Secret Service. mike’s link/comments below are outdated. Now mike knows; so, the next time mike says this, mike will then be lying outright. –ILC]

    https://www.buzzfeed.com/amphtml/josephbernstein/inside-the-alt-rights-campaign-to-smear-trump-protesters-as

    He then lied and said the sources recanted.
    (They didn’t)

    [Lastly, note where mike’s heart is. He’s delighted with the thought that protesting Google is ridiculous and doomed to fail. In other words: mike’s emotions, at least, are on the side of Google, a company which 1) violates California labor laws by firing whistleblowers, and 2) does pro-Left censorship. mike’s emotions favor that world: a world that Google censors and manages for him – and never mind the crimes that Google commits along the way. –ILC]

  11. Alt-left wins again…

  12. V – I say Alt Left for “the part that does the actual violence and can be called out as easily as the Alt Right”. Your point is clear: the Dems, sadly, embrace them.

  13. As long as low-information progressives like my sister believe that anyone at a public forum who isn’t Antifa is a “neo-Nazi” there’s not going to be any progress towards reason.

  14. @12 “[who] believe that anyone at a public forum who isn’t Antifa is a “neo-Nazi” there’s not going to be any progress towards reason.”

    Indeed, all the way through his being attacked by the SJWs for his stance against the gender-pronouns-legally-enforced issue in Canada, Jordan Peterson didn’t cease to make the scientific (psychology) case that identity,

    1) yes, is multi dimensional (gender, ethnicity, language, culture, sexual preferences, food preferences, etc)
    2) and yes, is in part socially-constructed (education, profession, economic status)
    3) but no, for any of those dimensions, is not just an individual whim, or from intrinsic to antagonisms between oppressor vs oppressed classes, or deserving “rights”
    4) instead, except for the most biologically-tied ones (eg, gender), the socially-constructed dimensions are negociated between the individual and his/her environment (eg, “oh, you’re a car mechanic? Cool, I was looking for someone to fix my car!”)

    N e g o c i a t i o n

    T r a d e

    C o n s e n t

    Non-self-centered psyche.

    Everything that a normal 2 year old in development or a 2017 leftist are almost completely foreign to.

  15. @ Ted B.: That’s unfortunate about your sister. Do you have to deal with her often?
