The System With The Gloves Off.

         The establishment billionaires, chatting about their latest investments, as they sit in their marble halls of power, or sipping champagne on board their multi million pound yachts, must be feeling rather, smug at the moment, they have succeeded in sparking the fire again. The have the ordinary people fighting each other on the streets, a wonderful opportunity for the state to increase controls to keep "law and order". The rise of the right, is no mystic happening, no unforeseen accident, it always appears as the dissatisfaction rises among the people. It is a well tried and tested strategy to get the people fighting among themselves. When resistance to the system becomes too difficult, for the "legal" system to silence, intimidate and imprison, why not try to kick the shit out of them on the street. and at the same time, take the focus of the system itself, capitalism. The so called Alt-right, etc., is just the system with the gloves off.
       Sadly the Nazis on the streets are not the billionaires, they tend to be from the streets where you live, they are the street thugs of those billionaires, who wouldn't touch them with a barge pole, Hence they always get treated differently from those on the left, by the "forces of law and order" when it cones to a confrontation on the streets.
        A recent incident from Houston Anarchist Bookfair, reported by Black Rose Anarchist Federation: 

HOUSTON – With chants of “Blood and Soil” about 30 fascists affiliated with Vanguard America and the Proud Boys attempted to rush the entrance of the Houston Anarchist Book Fair underway at MECA Houston community center on Sunday, September 24. The attempt occurred at 11:50am but was quickly rebuffed as the security team present locked the doors to the facility, blocking the entrance briefly but foiling the effort of the fascist groups to enter the building to intimidate and likely attack organizers and attendees.
       The incident lasted roughly 20 minutes in total and no confrontations or injuries occurred as the the fascists gave up, circled the building in their trucks and left the scene according to members of Black Rose/Rosa Negra – San Antonio, who were present at the book fair tabling. Members of the Proud the Boys and Vanguard America were both involved in the violent “Unite the Right” march one month ago in Charlottesville, VA, where a participant linked to Vanguard America rammed their vehicle into a crowd of counter-protesters, resulting in the  death of Heather Heyer. This incident at the Houston Anarchist Book Fair occurred immediately before lunch, which suggested prior planning and knowledge of the event.
      Correction: The original headline of this article incorrectly identified the group present as the “alt-right” Proud Boys groups. Members of this group may have been present but our understanding is that this was led by members of Vanguard America.
Video clip of the incident taken by a member of Black Rose/Rosa Negra – San Antonio. At this point members of Vanguard America, identified by their white polo shirts, had given up and were circling the building to leave.
