Note: This whole thing is getting very confusing. Here’s the synopsis: We will definitely be having an anti-war pro-Assad BBQ on 9/11. There may or may not be a Leftist response.
TradYouth’s foremost frenemy, Spelunker, has taken the time to rally the anti-White troops in response to our “Stand with Syria BBQ“, organizing an “End Muslim and Jewish Hate Coalition” especially for our little shindig.
Today, August 31, 2013, I am formally announcing a challenge to the Traditionalist Youth Networks planned Koran and Talmud BBQ to be held at a yet undisclosed location between Flint and Lansing, Michigan. The challenge will be in the form of a non-violent counter-demonstration titled the, “End Muslim and Jewish Hate Coalition”, made up of a diverse group of unaffiliated Leftist and Civil Rights groups led by myself.
A big problem with this is that we had actually backed off from burning a Koran. No Koran will be burned. This was in response to the Syrian War events which unfolded a couple days after we settled on having a Koran BBQ. We wanted to send a clear message that Islamic terrorism and creeping Sharia will not be tolerated in America. Unfortunately, there’s nothing clear about the “clear message” now, and we feared that a Koran burning at this time could detract from a more important message: We’ve got to stop invading Middle Eastern countries at Israel and the war machine’s behest.
We’ll revisit the whole Koran burning thing at some later date. We’re still super eager to offend loopy Leftists and aggressive Muslim immigrants. They’ve burned thousands of American civilians alive, yet our burning their favorite book in response is supposedly “hate”. It’s a window into the mindset of the Left that they’re eager to team up with a group that’s even more patriarchal, theocratic, and anti-feminist than ourselves…as long as they’re not White.
Our position on Islam and the Middle East is crystal clear: We must stop invading and inviting the world. American soldiers aren’t welcome in Syria, and Syrian Muslims aren’t welcome in America. This position doesn’t really have a home in America’s current political landscape, one where Republicans want to imperially invade traditionally Islamic homelands and where Democrats want our own traditionally Christian homelands invaded by Muslims. Rather than back down from organizing the Leftist mob against us in light of our having flipped the event into a peace rally, Spelunker’s doubled down. He claims to have over 1,000 Leftists prepared to stand in solidarity with Obama’s warmongering.
It was indeed unprofessional of us to virtually invert our event while he was busy putting together this impressive response. For that, I apologize to Spelunker and promise not to do that to him again. As a fellow activist organizer, I respect all the time and energy he put into this. At this point, he’s in the unenviable position of either calling the whole thing off or goading a bunch of Leftists into protesting the burning of a Koran we already decided not to burn. I propose that all of his Leftist allies show up and join us in a united voice against the illegal, immoral, and imperial war the Obama Administration is gearing up for.
Way back in 2005, back before it was cool, I frequently attended and supported anti-war rallies. It was super awkward standing alongside Code Pink types and chanting alongside masked antifa thugs. But I did it, because it was the right thing to do. I was there because these wars are evil. These wars slaughter our bravest young men and women and squander trillions of dollars on behalf of lobbyists and foreign oligarchs. In fact, the first time I met Mmoja Ajabu, Indianapolis’s most vocal Black Power voice, was at a peace rally nearly a decade ago. Spelunker and I disagree on a lot of stuff, but if I can put aside my differences to stand with a former Black Panther on a pivotal moral issue, then I hope Spelunker will consider setting our differences aside and joining TradYouth in a united voice against this impending war.
We’ll be there with our hot dogs, burgers, and Syrian flags, and our message will be a simple one of peace and anti-imperialism. The thousands of people who had been planning to join us are welcome to do so, but we’ll surely need them to pitch in their own burgers, buns, and beverages.
Spelunker’s latest dispatch is that “The Koran Burning is Off! We Are WINNING!” As is abundantly obvious from the very screenshots and links Spelunker plucked from our page, the Koran Burning was called off several days before we had any idea that there was going to be a Leftist counter-protest.
He completely removed his original post rather than updating it, because he evidently doesn’t know how the Internet works.
Update (9/1/13 afternoon):
Now Spelunker’s claiming “libel”. TradYouth’s in-house staff attorneys have reviewed his allegations, pored over the relevant case law, and advised us that the most appropriate legal strategy to pursue at this time is to double down and milk this episode for even more Marxist butthurt.
While we won’t remove the post or even revise it, we’ll admit here in this update that Spelunker likely got excited and confused, and wasn’t actually trying to target a peace rally. Since even his own copy-pastes confirmed that we had already turned the event into a peace rally before he did all that work, I doubt Spelunker v. TradYouth is going to find its way to the Supreme Court any time soon.
