Jason Kessler, organizer of the “Unite the Right” march in Charlottesville, apparently used to be in the Occupy Movement and supported Obama. By the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a fairly hard-left organization, who are highly unlikely to be claiming Kessler as one of their own.
Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.
At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city, Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.
Reichstag fire in the USA? By Karl Denninger.
What if Jason Kessler isn’t really a right-wing extremist?
What if Jason Kessler used to be involved with Occupy Wall Street and was a strong Obama supporter — right up until, quite-literally to the day, Trump won the election?
What if he’s nothing more than a stooge?
In other words, what if Jason Kessler is just a plain old-fashioned *******-for-hire? …
Nearly all of the SPLC’s documented incidents of his “hard right” behavior appear to date to just after and beyond the 2016 elections. …
What if … this entire incident was basically manufactured, seeking and utilizing paid stooges to set up a volatile situation which the police not only allowed to turn bad but they appear to have had a hand in intentionally stoking the violent behavior of those present by chasing off the so-called alt-right folks right into the much-larger Antifa crowd?
Why were the cops told to stand down, who gave that order along with the order to force the original protesters into the waiting maw of the counter-protesters and what sort of political affiliation does everyone involved in that decision hold?
Probably nothing to it, but a possibility to bear in mind.
