The inestimable Sam Francis gave us the concept of anarcho-tyranny. This is the socio-political situation where crime is rampant, protected groups initiate and perpetrate political violence, and the state does nothing about it, concentrating it's violence on whites, Christians, gun-owners, and heterosexuals who dare criticize Islam, vote for President Donald J. Trump, or stand up to the violence by Blacks, illegal aliens, and radical leftists acting at the direction of the Democrat Party and the bureaucratic state. VDare has been at the forefront of the recent manifestations of anarcho-tyranny and the coming hot Civil War. [“It Will Come To Blood”–Reflections On The Left’s Anti-Trump Inauguration Tantrum, by Peter Brimelow, VDare, January 23, 2017, In The Streets And The Courts, The Left Plans A Coup. But Trump Can Fight Back, by Federale, VDare, February 14, 2017, and Needed In Response To The Berkeley Riot: A New “Dear Colleague” Letter, A Federal Civil Rights Investigation–And Some Arrests, by Federale, VDare, February 4, 2017]
The Democrat Party and their minions, AntiFa, the Black Block, and Black Lives Matter, have organized deliberate violence to further their political ends, and are using State Power as part of that illegal conspiracy. These actions by the Democrats are the very definition of terrorism.
The Federal government provides two succinct mutually supportive definitions of terrorism, in both statute and regulations:
First, Title 22 United States Code Section 2656f:
(2) the term “terrorism” means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents;
(3) the term “terrorist group” means any group practicing, or which has significant subgroups which practice, international terrorism;
And the official definition of terrorism from Title 28 Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 0.85:
Terrorism includes the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.
On February 4, 2017, supporters of President Trump had a rally at Civic Center Park in Berkeley, CA. The rally was part of nation-wide rallies to support President Trump. But the Democrat Party and their terrorist allies had different plans for those attending the rally. Their plan was deliberate violence against persons to intimidate and coerce both the American people and President Trump in furtherance of the political agenda of the Democrat Party.
The City of Berkeley and the Berkeley Police Department (BPD) were well aware of the demonstration and the planned terrorist attacks on the peaceful demonstrators planned by Democrat Party officials, a Berkeley Unified School District employee and open terrorist Yvette Felarca, and open terrorist groups, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), Black Bloc, and Antifa.
The city is preparing for a potential pro-Trump demonstration planned for Saturday at 2 p.m. at Civic Center Park in downtown Berkeley, as well as for a counter-protest that has been called for noon in the same location.
“We’re planning for a number of different contingencies,” said city spokesman Matthai Chakko Friday. Chakko said the expectation was that the pro-Trump event would be a “small gathering of people.”

And the terrorists were open about their plans to bring violence to Civic Center Park:
Meanwhile the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) — has announced a counter-protest to the pro-Trump demo, stating its purpose is to “confront and defeat the Trump movement” with “no platform for fascists and white supremacists.” A focus of the action, the group says, is to defend Berkeley’s sanctuary city status.
BAMN openly bragged about their previous violence and terrorism, and publicly promised more terrorism:
UC-Berkeley students and community members won a tremendous victory against President Trump and his proto-fascist movement on February 1 by shutting down white supremacist, Breitbart News Editor and demagogue Milo Yiannopoulos. Thousands of people mobilized in defense of immigrant and Muslim students, against racism, sexism, and homophobia, and stood united at Sproul Plaza chanting “Shut it down!” The protest took effective and prompt mass action that stopped Yiannopoulos’ racist-recruitment event from going forward...
All out on March 4th! Confront and defeat the Trump movement! No platform for fascists and white supremacists!
[Confront and Defeat the Trump Movement: COUNTER-PROTEST the Pro-Trump Berkeley Rally, BAMN, March 1, 2017]
And the BPD planned to ignore the terrorists and allow, again, violence and terror attacks against Trump supporters.

While the police say they are preparing for any potential problems Saturday, they cannot say precisely what those preparations involve, including how many officers might be mobilized. At the Yiannopoulos demonstration both BPD and UCPD kept their distance and only one arrest was made. Afterwards both agencies were criticized for what was perceived by many commentators as too hands-off a response. BPD Chief Andrew Greenwood said the department’s approach had been informed by the East Bay Black Lives Matters protests of 2014. “Placing police officers into a potentially volatile crowd situation could have prompted a focused, sustained violent attack on police, thereby rapidly escalating the risk of harm to all involved,” he wrote in a two-page memo to Berkeley City Manager Dee Williams-Ridley about the Yiannopoulos protest.
However, when evil is about the land, a hero sometimes arises, and the hero that day in Berkeley was #BasedStickMan, Kyle Chapman, a patriot dedicated to protecting the weak from terrorists, something BPD Chief Greenwood not only refused to do, but actively conspired with the terrorists to allow attacks on law abiding Americans. However Chapman and a small group of like minded patriots arrived prepared for the attacks by communist thugs. And this small group of modern Spartans broke the terrorist attack:
In response to violence they knew was coming, Chief Greenwood and the BPD were on the sidelines most of the day, allowing the violence to grow instead of suppressing it with ruthless coercion at the first sign.
At around 12:30 p.m. about 20 police officers arrived and took up positions on the south side of the park and on the elevated section next to the Peace Wall. Armed with batons, as well as at least one video camera, they at first observed from a distance. A handful of officers were stationed at the entrance to downtown Berkeley BART station from around noon.
[Downtown Berkeley Protest Ends With 10 Arrests, At Least 7 Injured, by Tracey Taylor, Berkeleyside, March 4, 2017]
And, yes, Democrat Party elected officials and terrorist leaders were on hand to direct the violence:
At first, the BAMN group was congregated on the west side of the park and it kickstarted proceedings with controversial BUSD teacher Yvette Felarca making a speech through a megaphone...
Berkeley City Councilman Ben Bartlett was at the protest, and State Senator Nancy Skinner was there for a time too.
Even though #BasedStickMan was acting in self-defense and that of others, fending off a terrorist attack, he was then shamefully arrested by the BPD, who for the most part ignored attacks on themselves and others by the Democrat Party organized terrorists.
Throughout the main protest at the park, from midday to around 5 p.m., there were no helicopters overhead. Around 5 p.m. when a only a few stragglers, most of whom seemed to be either Antifa or BAMN related, remained, a red helicopter did begin to hover over the park. Protesters, some of whom were wearing all black and wearing bandanas, were goading the police and some threw eggs. Several arrests were made.
However, photos of the weapons seized showed that those arrested were the modern day Spartans who were acting in self-defense.
Despite the fact that #BasedStickGuy and others were acting in self-defense from an organized and premeditated terrorist attack, they were arrested, which is prohibited by California statute:
For purposes of the self-defense legal defense, “reasonable under the circumstances” means that you need to have:
- Reasonably believed that you were in imminent danger of being killed, injured, or touched unlawfully,
- Reasonably believed that you needed to use force to prevent that from happening, and
- Used no more force than was necessary to prevent that from happening.2
- Moreover, thanks to California's so-called “stand your ground laws,” you are under no obligation to “retreat” – that is, to run away or try to escape – before you use self-defense to protect yourself.
Self-defense can be a useful legal defense to a number of California crimes, including:
- Assault with a deadly weapon,
- Aggravated battery
[Self-defense As A Legal Defense Under California Criminal Law, Neil Shouse, Shouse California Law Group, undated]
And now it is time for Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III to stand up and be counted. The terrorist rioting by Yvette Felarca, BAMN, Black Block, and Antifa is being protected and encouraged by Democrat Party office holders and enabled local government bureaucrats, including Chief Greenwood and Chief Margo Bennett, University of California Berkeley Police Chief, in violation of Federal civil rights laws, including Title 18 United States Code (USC) § 242 - Deprivation of Rights Under Color Of Law, Title 18 USC § 241 - Conspiracy Against Rights, Title 18 USC § 2101 - Riots, and Title 42 USC § 1985 - Conspiracy To Interfere With Civil Rights. Time for AG Sessions to begin prosecutions and protect #BasedStickMan and other Americans from anarcho-tyranny. Time for Chiefs Greenwood and Bennett to feel the full force of the Federal government just as Chapman and the modern Spartans have felt the full force of the State of California. Time for the Trump Administration to get in the fight.
