Fear & Loathing In Washington, DC

Sam Dickson reports on the NPI conference

By Sam Dickson
 
The National Policy Institute (NPI) sponsored a Conference in Washington, D.C. on Friday and Saturday, the 18th and 19th of November. The subject matter of the Conference was “The Alt Right and Trump.”
 
300 people attended the Conference, but registration took place “on-line,” and those wishing to attend were not screened or “approved.”  Numerous well-credentialed speakers presented well-prepared and thoughtful remarks to a well-behaved and orderly audience.
 
The restrained and orderly behavior of the attendees stood in stark contrast to repeated criminal attacks upon NPI supporters both nights from so-called “civil rights protesters,” as they have been called by the Corrupt Leftist Media. They call themselves the “Anti-Fa” (or “anti-fascists,”) a term used by extreme Marxists against their enemies.
 
The “protests” went far beyond peaceful demonstrations. The Anti-Fa were able to bully two restaurants in succession into cancelling the NPI’s reservations for its Friday dinner.
 
When the NPI was able to secure yet a third venue, the “protesters” were able to track attendees and proceeded to disrupt the dinner by crowding around the entrance, where they harassed diners and those seeking to enter or leave.
 
These hooligans became more and more emboldened as the evening progressed. Many invaded the restaurant wearing masks to hide their identities. They charged up the stairway and attempted to reach the top floor where the NPI dinner was in progress.
 
Fortunately, the Anti-Fa were blocked on the stairway by NPI President Richard Spencer and others, and were unable to invade the dining room or to commit whatever crimes they intended, had they been able to reach their objective.
 
We have some idea of their intentions because the “civil rights protesters” carried spray bottles of urine, with which they sprayed Richard Spencer and others among those successfully blocking their access to the dining room.
 
Invasion of a restaurant under these circumstances constitutes Criminal Trespass, and it is a crime. Spraying people with urine is also a crime: It’s called an “Assault.”

The Washington police made no arrests. They also refused to remove the masks of these criminals, when requested by the NPI attendees.

The bullying of two successive restaurant venues, the criminal trespass into the restaurant, the violent assault against the President of NPI and the wearing of masks to hide their identities were of no concern to the police or to the Corrupt Leftist Media.

Apparently, “civil rights protesters” have a “right” to disrupt peaceful meetings, invade public accommodations en masse and spray people with urine. And, at least according to the District police, they have a “right” to wear masks when they are engaged in such activities.
 
The next day the conduct of the Anti-Fa grew even nastier, which is predictable when violent criminals are permitted to engage in criminal acts with impunity. This violent and criminal element recognized a conference attendee and his girl friend: Without any provocation whatsoever, five or six criminals then brutally attacked him.
 
They knocked him to the ground and proceeded to savagely kick and pummel him while chanting “Die, die, die.” Had one of the kicks struck the victim in his neck, these “civil rights protesters” could easily have achieved their stated threat of killing their victim. Fortunately, the victim’s injuries were “limited” to bruises and a bloodied head.
 
The victim’s girlfriend was not beaten, but she was sprayed with Raid insecticide. This also is an assault: It has the potential to do severe damage to the eye and permanently impair one’s vision.
 
This time the police were reluctantly driven to arrest at least some of the perpetrators. However, no effort was made by the police to make the cowards in this “peaceful demonstration” remove their masks and reveal their identities.
 
In the minds of the D.C. police (and I use the term “minds” with reservation,) these criminals have a “right” to obscure their identities when committing violent felonies. For the D.C. police to require these criminals to reveal their identities was deemed a violation of their “right” to wear masks when committing assaults or when engaged in criminal trespass.
 
This outrage causes one to ponder whether the Ku Klux Klan possesses an equivalent “right” to go about the District of Columbia masked and engaged in violent assaults against those attending political meetings sponsored by the NAACP or other leftists: Does anyone think the KKK would receive such “kid-glove” treatment from the District’s police force?
 
NPI hopes that the potentially fatal or blinding criminal assaults upon its attendees and their girl friends will actually be prosecuted and punished with appropriate severity.
 
However, the history of the District on this matter is not encouraging. Last year, another of the Anti-Fa assaulted one of the participants in an earlier NPI conference. She was arrested, but the charges were summarily dropped without her victims ever being contacted by police or prosecutors. (Washington: A Third World country, indeed, and very much resembling Zimbabwe!)
 
No NPI officer, speaker or Conference participant was ever provoked into retaliating in kind to the violence and criminality of the Anti-Fa. This restraint, needless to say, garnered no credit, whatsoever, with the Corrupt Leftist Media.
 
Likewise, deliberate and violent assaults appear to be unworthy of notice by prosecuting authorities, so long as they are committed by ideological allies. (More evidence of a Third World government in D.C.)
 
None of the crimes committed against NPI and its participants aroused any significant moral indignation in the mass media. Most of the media did not report these crimes at all, despite dramatic footage of these violent criminals kicking and beating their victim until he required medical attention.
 
Reporting criminal violence against “politically incorrect” victims does not fit their narrative, so it must be “spiked.” A news media dedicated to “filtering” and “managing” the news knows better than to report such crimes against their political enemies. The media is exclusively interested in reporting “all the news that fits their narratives.”
 
Demonstrating just how biased and dishonest they truly are, the Corrupt Leftist Media actually DID express outrage and indignation over some events surrounding the NPI Conference: It’s just that the indignation was directed exclusively at the NPI and its participants.
 
There was a tsunami of media outrage over the actions of a tiny number of attendees to the Conference during the last 45 minutes of a two-day conference.

Richard Spencer, the NPI’s President, gave the concluding remarks. In them, he parodied and satirized the news media’s caricature of the Alt Right by saying “celebrate like it is 1933” which he then countered by saying “celebrate like it is 2016.”
 
He concluded his remarks by hailing the Trump victory and saying “Hail Trump,” lyrics found in the official song “Hail to the Chief,” played and sung when the President enters a function.
 
The media, however, being gripped by its desire to damage Trump and his supporters at every opportunity, twisted Spencer’s remarks into a their tortured interpretation as “Heil Hitler.”
 
At the conclusion of Spencer’s speech the audience gave a standing ovation. As the media was filming, about four individuals — whose identities are unknown to NPI — gave Hitler salutes. One is seen rushing to the front and repeatedly saluting so as to insure that he is prominently noticed. The remaining 296 people simply clapped and exited in an orderly fashion. End of story? No.

The Corrupt Leftist Media erupted with wild claims of a Nazi rally in the Ronald Reagan Building. Among many other habitual liars, Rachel Madcow informed her audience that “the room” erupted into Nazi salutes. Four out of 300 became “the room.”
 
The Corrupt Leftist Media has a glaring double standard in these matters, as evidenced by their tender treatment of the “Occupy Movement.” Many in the Occupy Movement wore shirts or carried flags bearing the hammer and sickle of international communism or displayed the face of the Castroite communist, terrorist Che Guevara.
 
The Occupy Movement participants who engaged in this conduct publicly demonstrated their support for an ideology that murdered 100 million innocent souls in the 20th Century, alone.  There was never any media outrage about Communist participation in the Occupy Movement. 

Likewise, the Communist Party formally endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. The reaction? Did the media demand that Hillary reject Communist support? Did it express alarm that Communists desired her election? No, because they are all on the same team.
 
NPI does not impose strict conditions upon its attendees except that they are not to engage in violent or criminal behavior. If a National Socialist wishes to attend a function, he may. Likewise, Jews and African Americans may attend and some did attend the Conference without incident.
 
NPI is not responsible for its attendees’ political beliefs, and it does have reason to ponder whether the identity and motives of the “NAZI-saluters” in the audience were legitimate attendees.
 
For example, the most prominent NAZI-salutes were photographed at the restaurant on Friday night. They depict an Oriental female who participated (without incident) in the Conference standing with two Jewish males. The two males gave the NAZI-salute as the picture was snapped.
 
NPI believes in Rule of Law and our beliefs on racial issues are not extreme. In fact, they are the same views once held by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.
 
NPI’s expression of its beliefs are protected by the First Amendment, or in theory, are supposed to be protected by the First Amendment. The denial of police protection to those repeatedly attacked by fanatics wedded to un-American views is a violation of our right to peaceably assemble and seek redress for the wrongs being perpetrated against White European America.
 
Likewise, the rankly hypocritical and dishonest behavior of the Corrupt Leftist Media is evidence they condone such behavior, and approve of violent and criminal acts used to suppress our First Amendment Rights.
 
This Hitler issue is a classic tempest in a teapot and a contrived issue. It is a non-issue, regardless of the efforts of the Rachel Madcows of the world who wish to make it the alpha and omega of the Alt Right and what the Alt Right believes.
 
NPI is annoyed by the way this “issue” has been handled, but it is hardly surprised: Media bias is simply a fact of life in America, just as it was with TASS and PRAVDA in the former Soviet, and for the same reason. 

The NPI knows as well as anyone that to seek fairness and objectivity, one searches in vain within America’s print or electronic news media. The good news is that America is waking up to this reality.
