Re: “Updated: Opposition Emerges Right Off the Bat to A's Laney Ballpark Plans

So tired of the negative wrap about gentifrication. Improvements and revitalization of areas is a positive not a negative. Trying to keep a place holder on worn out areas provides its own set of problems.

Oath Keepers confirms the participation of current members of law enforcement including "Sheriff's deputies" and "correctional officers" in their citizen militia activities in the Bay Area.

Re: “Oakland Police Report: No More Officers Will Face Discipline in Celeste Guap Police Sex Crimes Scandal

And that, folks, is why we need a police commission and why 83% of Oakland voters approved Measure LL last November.

Disgraceful. I'll bet that punishment-by-"round table" got a good laugh around the department.

Wow... the White Rightists here could rival the trolls in the Kremlin basement! Is there some place that people are trained in the casting of aspersions? It must feel GOOD to 'sample' the Constitution and forget about the trail of case law that follows it... and to reach for the Magna Carta- or TEN COMMANDMENTS- when those sources are better support than what passes for local law & order. "AGENDAS 'R' US"! wheeeee... ^..^

The SPLC labels anyone or group who doesn't "kowtow" to the Leftist line of thought an extremist or extremist right-wing group.
At one time, they had an honest mission but have gone hard Left to include calling Dr. Ben Carson "an extremist".

SPLC is a leftist lobby group that presents opinions as facts, and recently was caught transferring money into offshore bank accounts. http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/sep/1/splc-transferred-millions-offshore-tax-havens/

Re: “Private Military Mogul Erik Prince Scheduled to Speak at UC Berkeley as Part of Right-Wing 'Free Speech Week'

Another alt right thug of Blackwater fame comes to Berkeley to tell lies to the students who patronize his take. Blackwater is a taxpayer waste and dangerous mercenary organization.

The right wing trolls have quite a showing in the comment sections. Southern Poverty Law Center is a reputable organization that has a long track record opposing hate crimes and racism. Everyone should support the SPLC, the best of America!

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

Are you serious, Edward Kesler? The primary source I could find for the SPLC labeling the VFW and the American Legion is Duffel Blog: https://www.duffelblog.com/2017/09/southern-poverty-law-center-classifies-vfw-foreign-legion-as-hate-groups/

From Duffel Blog's own "About" page: "We are in no way, shape, or form, a real news outlet. Everything on this website is satirical and the content of this site is a parody of a news organization. No composition should be regarded as truthful, and no reference of an individual, company, or military unit seeks to inflict malice or emotional harm."

I know it makes you feel self-righteous to attack journalists for their perceived failings, but c'mon guy; at least do some research on your spurious claims before going off half cocked.

Good to see the comments here are living up to the grand tradition of raving paranoid whack-jobs pushing jingoistic conspiracy theories and frothing at the mouth towards anyone who dares have a differing opinion. Enjoy talking about us at your next KKK meeting, fellas.

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

One thing for sure is that the Alameda County Sheriff is NOT an oathkeeper. If he had any respect for the oath that he swore, to defend and protect the Constitution of the untied States, he would issue CCW permits to law abiding citizens. But he is in charge of one of the most crime ridden counties in the country and he will not let people defend themselves or their families. Ahern is a coward.

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

Tracy - you're hilarious. You link to Mother Jones and Al Jazeera (among others) both of which are as anti-American as can be. The term "right-wing extremist" is yet another one of those terms made up by the LibProg MSM trying to put down traditional Americans. While Antifa and BLM go around rioting, destroying public and private property and attacking law-abiding citizens exercising their Constitutional Rights, there has been NO such violence from the Oath Keepers, Threepers/III%'rs, or any of the rest of the conservative last line of defense. I CAN tell you however - if Antifa makes good on their pledge to start a civil/race war in November they WILL be shut down. Oh, and by the way: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/08/the-splc-smear-machine-is-being-funded-by-liberal-billionaires-why

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

Extreme? How many violent acts are they responsible for?

None.

Anti-government? Maybe, but that'd include the Trump government, too. So I think that means they're not a "right wing" group.

Libertarian, maybe.

Also, I remember them going to BLM protests... to keep looters out of stores.

They went to the Charlottesville protest... to stand between the racists and Antifa when the POLICE would NOT.

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

The SPLC is nothing more than a discredited progressive Alt-left extremist organization. No credibility whatsoever. On the other hand, the Oathkeepers are a very credible constitutional organization...something that the anti-American, neo-communist and establishment progressives abhor.

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

The SPLC is nothing more than a bunch liberal assholes that classified BLM as a good organization. But a group like the oathkeepers that care about the constitution bad have there wires screwed up and should investigated for the offshore bank accounts

Sources from splc to back up that claim about vfw and American legion?

Posted by Eric Schmidt on 09/15/2017 at 2:40 PM

Re: “Right-Wing Extremist Group Had Booth at Urban Shield ‘To Explain Who They Are’

The SPLC is a discredited left wing organization that is no longer recognized as an authority on hate groups. The SPLC has classified the VFW and American Legion as a "hate groups".

A "real" journalist" would visit Oath Keepers.org to find out what the organization's goals are. Would you be a real journalist, please Ms Lynn?
