At the request of the event organizers from Liberty Revival Alliance (Rich Black and David Fadda), Oath Keepers sent current and retired police officers (most from California) as well as military veterans and patriotic citizens to help provide security for the April 15 free speech rally in MLK Jr. Park in Berkeley, CA. John Karriman served as our tactical team leader on the ground. Stewart Rhodes was also present. Also part of the combined force security element were California III% patriots and American Civil Defense (all outstanding professionals), as well as bikers from “Two Million Bikers.” Then came a couple hundred more patriots who showed up all geared up and ready to defend, including the Proud Boys, Kyle Chapman (Based Stick Man) and his followers, and MAGA hat wearing patriots, more bikers, and even more Three Percenters. It all added up to a bad day for Anti-fa and BAMN. A total epic FAIL for the bad guys, and a total epic victory for the good guys and for free speech.
American patriots of all races stood together in defense of free speech in Berkeley. An awesome sight!
Here, Stewart and John discuss the performance of the Berkeley PD and what grade John would give them for that day (they did better than last time, but not as good as they could have), the way in which Anti-fa was outmatched and outclassed, and how the speakers were able to speak, and the audience was able to listen without being attacked or even disturbed in any way.
Anti-fa failed to take the park, failed to shut down the event, and failed to even touch anyone within the audience or among the speakers within the defensive perimeter of the park. That is the real news the media is failing to report.
They discuss the duty of all “sheepdogs” to defend the innocent, and the need to unite the patriot warrior class (current serving and veteran cops, military, and other first-responders along with patriot gun owners) to defend our communities.
And they discuss what we are likely to see from the communists and far-left “Lefty-Fa” after they lick their wounds, hit the bong, and do some navel gazing – hint: look to the 1970s history of the Weather Underground and related groups who resorted to terrorism using bombs and guns when they failed to trigger their mass communist revolution.
NOTE FROM STEWART RHODES: We would like to thank Rich Black and David Fadda for putting on this Patriots Day Free Speech Rally, for asking us to help with security (it was an honor), and we congratulate them on a great success. We wish them all the best with their future endeavors.
We also salute the brave speakers – especially the incredibly brave women such as Brittany Pettibone and Lauren Southern – who put themselves at personal risk to be there, in defiance of domestic terrorist threats of violence. We were honored to help protect you at the event.
This was the first event in recent history where free speech from anyone on the right was successfully carried out in Berkeley California despite the violent hissy fit of the America hating, U.S. flag burning, M-80, rock, and bottle throwing, bike lock swinging communists that infest California. Rich Black had held his March 4 event in the same location, in reaction to the UC Berkeley Milo fiasco in February, and despite some serious violence on March 4, he and his supporters came back yet again on April 15, but this time with more defenders. And this time it was a success.
We especially want to thank the Alameda County, CA Chapter of Oath Keepers who stepped up in a big way. Contrary to some false media claims, the vast majority of our members there were locals, not from out of state.
And we also salute all the great American patriots of every race and background, whether in a group or on their own, who showed up on April 15 to stand in defense of the Constitution against openly declared domestic enemies. Many of you were brother veterans, but veterans or not, you are all our brothers and sisters, and it was an honor to shake your hands and to stand with you. Be proud of what you accomplished. On that day, on that spot, the Constitution was fully defended and enforced, by YOU. We love you all!
For the Republic,
