Charlottesville “Unite the Right” Organizer Was Ex Obama Supporter, Occupy Activist

According to a SPLC report, Jason Kessler, the man who organized the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is a former Occupy Wall Street Activist and a supporter of Barack Obama. Besides the Southern Poverty Law Center report, Jason Kessler gave an interview yesterday for Inforwars’ Alex Jones, during which he confirmed Southern Poverty Law Center’s claims, i.e. that he was involved more or less with the Occupy Wall Street Movement and the fact that he supported Barack Obama from 2007 until 2015, when he turned conservator, Republican or whatever. You can see Jason Kessler interview with Alex Jones here.

Southern Poverty Law Center is a well known left-wing and very partisan group which excels in targeting so-called hate groups (a hate group is anything that’s not progressive/left wing by the way), and the fact that they identified Jason Kessler’s left wing roots is pretty significant. As SPLC put it:

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.

As Southern Poverty Law Center notes, Jason Kessler turned right wing very recently, in November 2016 to be more precise, though he claims the change occurred back in 2013. And speaking of Occupy Wall Street, this was an extreme left-wing (as in communist) movement dedicated to the destruction of capitalism. Started in 2011 in Manhattan, the Occupy Wall Street phenomenon included extremist and very violent elements that started riots and confronted the police a number of times between 2011 and 2012. It’s worth noticing that illustrious Democrats like Barry Obama, Nancy Pelosi and even Media Matters for America embraced this radical left-wing movement.

The thing is, it’s very peculiar for a former Obama/Occupy aficionado (until very recently) to suddenly turn “right wing” and then organize a march like Unite the Right in a Democrat dominated city like Charlottesville.

    I hope Kessler is prosecuted by the DOJ for his role in the Charlottesville violence so that perhaps the investigation and trial would reveal that what went down was a setup from the getgo and that George Soros financed both sides in the conflict: “Unite the Right” and his Antifa rent-a-mob. What happened was exactly as intended. The “Unite the RIght” name for the rally is very atypical for the Klan and neo-Nazis (neo-National Socialists). They and the conservative, constitutional, and even populist right have no use for each other. I suspect that this name was intended to smear the right with these odious hate groups. Don’t expect the press corps to get this because the press corps is a pack of jackals. The ACLU helped Kessler get the permit in Charlottesville, the perfect venue in which to pull this stunt. It is a sanctuary city with an idiot mayor who would be only too glad to oblige and have the municipal police stand down. Antifa and BLM would use violence to provoke any unstable person from the ranks of the KKK and Nazis, something that should and did prove easy to do. Kessler is still a leftist organizer, only in a new role as an organizer provocateur.

    The fact that the ACLU stepped in the last moment to allow the rally speaks volumes about the set-up job.l
