TradYouth SoCal Action Report

The Southern California Chapter of TradYouth really came into being this summer. We started out as a coalition of National-Anarchists and Traditionalists from a variety of ethnic backgrounds. Our founding members all come from Catholic families, but have grown disenchanted with the hijacking of Christianity and with the alternatives being offered. We’re all disenchanted with a society which has been under “progressive” rule for our entire lifetimes.

Most of us have had experience with various political movements ranging from having organized Food Not Bombs Pomona, a  chapter of the larger “Food not Bombs” network, to having met with Dr. Ron Paul for lunch. We officially launched with three members on a hiking trip, and have retained the hiking trip meet-n-greet ritual as a part of our local chapter’s humble origins.  We have attended multiple cultural events from various European Cultures, and met to discuss books and ideas over coffee, in order to build our ranks and meet new people in a safe and enjoyable way, but the hiking will always be at the heart of our Ethos-  So Californian, and yet so European,  so enjoyable, and yet a real means of preparedness both as a means of exercise and a means of familiarization with our surrounding environment.


Within a few months, we’ve grown to over a dozen reliable activists who are dedicated to culture jamming this sick society. We’re pushing back against the society which gave birth to no-fault divorce laws, a “medical card” system which was so easy to abuse that it amounted to a culture in which the only people going to jail for Marijuana were those who were excessively honest and didn’t care to abuse it,  and illegal immigration so pervasive that there are entire towns where English is not spoken, and a film industry where the major film studios and porn studios are increasingly difficult to tell apart.
When the Planned Parenthood video scandal came out, we successfully deployed 4 members in a “black bloc” formation to stand in between pro-life demonstrators and the counter protestors of the “Revolutionary Communist Party”, a Maoist group which does a lot of Chicano outreach in Los Angeles led by one Bob Avakian…

While we chose not to counterprotest this meeting at that time, having located the flier and considered options to act against them as a group shows the level of discipline we have developed in just a few short months.

This weekend, we hosted an anti-globalism and anti-united nations activist and youtuber who successfully acts as a one man team, standing between the suit and tie face of the far left and city councils, to teach our members how one goes about engaging and influencing local governments. Rather than being a cuckservative, this is a man who has repeated the “mantra” in his opposition to immigration – yet acts effectively at the local level.

The one action demands the other. We cannot leave the streets entirely, yet we cannot stay in them entirely. We need to educate ourselves in order to better stand against the enemies of innate human morality- and then, having thus studied, to go stand against them and for what is right and true.

In one summer, we have gone from an idea held by three men, to an effective committee of a dozen. And we hope to be joined by many more before the year’s end. This is it – Our declaration of war against all that is wrong with Southern California, which in and of itself has become an embodiment of all that is wrong with America. Through the effective use of non-violent confrontation, economic non-participation, social action, counter-culture, counter-economics, and a life submitted to our people and our God, we hope to create a California once more worth living in, and thereby transition the world from globalism with monetary based morality to localism with values based in God and Family.  We will use every tool at our disposal from DIY clothing and street action to professional marketing techniques to effectively achieve this goal.
Thus; echoing the words of Catholic Rebels in Mexico before us; we do cry out:

Viva Cristo Rey!

    Where can I get a shirt? These things should be printed up by the dozens to raise money. Anyone commenting on TradYouth should be able to come up with $15 for a shirt.

    • TorBaker

      I totally agree

    • John Amery

      hi, these particular shirts were put together by volunteer effort and iron-on transfer, however we are working on getting some professionally produced. While I’m not sure of the total final cost, as we intend to sell them as a fundraiser and will put together a custom store in the near future. In the mean time you can also go to although we’re having issues with getting the logo to be the proper size on the garments due to constraints of the cafepress platform. So don’t order anything expecting it to be larger than what’s in the photos on the site. The orthodoxy or death gear will be nice however.

    Best of luck to you. I am not convinced that CA can be saved, but if it is, it will be due to people such as yourselves.

    • John Amery

      honestly, everything else is perfect, except the demographics and the old boomers in power. we have great weather, a great growing season, the only medditeranean climate outside of southern europe, and a nice culture that grew out of the various waves of settlement: spanish colonialism, southern miners, midwestern “okies”, post-war families, and even the positive elements of the hippie culture, such as a strong sense of conservation and naturalism, farmer’s markets, wineries, organic growing, etc.

    • John Durden

      We don’t even believe CA can be saved. We don’t do it to take back California, it’s too big a state to save. However, Southern California is known for having a unique culture, as opposed to the super “green” sustainability, depend on public transportation, bike focused culture of Northern California. There’s a reason why Jade Helm, with their map of the southwest, had Southern California marked red as hostile territory.

  • EricStriker

    Good job guys.

  • Samantha

    Ya’ll should see what these lolbertarian groups like Students for Liberty are doing and do likewise:

    • John Amery

      That’s a great idea! We actively hope to work together with groups like that who would respect our right to voluntary association rather than forced integration of ethnic groups.

  • Nathan Redacta

    Progressive rule? You gotta be kidding me. I don’t know whats worse your desire to feed the prison industrial complex, or your tired stance on immigration. The worst part is now people are gonna get your ideals confused with anarchist ideals. I can already see the incoming wave of racist anarchist thanks to your handy work.

    • John Durden

      Mission accomplished!

    • John Amery

      “. I can already see the incoming wave of racist anarchist thanks to your handy work.” Thank you so much <3 this means the world to us. Racist Anarchists are my homies.

    • Hammerheart

      I second the commotion! 😀

  • Eli Protich

    Hmm…anarchists who hate immigration.
    Once again, those on the far right appropriating left wing rhetoric to appeal to youth and the working class, just as the Nazis did with socialism.
    It’s apparent you all haven’t read any anarchist literature and only call yourselves such to make yourselves seem “edgy” or “punk” which is fine, but if you all stroll down to a demonstration with real anarchists expecting solidarity, you can anticipate to get your little white crypto fascist head caved in.

    • john smith

      hey, if the rhetoric works it works. besides we have some real hardcore fighters on our side.

      I’m speaking of course of:


    • John Durden

      Well, some of the people in our organization are Anarchists. I’m personally not. We accept people as long as they aren’t hostile toward us or want to “bash” our faces in. Hell, we even have a Democratic Socialist apart of our organization in TYN SoCal. We aren’t trying to be “edgy” or whatever misnomer terminology you use against us.

      If it makes you feel better, I have a copy Alexander Berkman’s The ABC of Anarchism and Emma Goldman’s Autobiography Vol. I. Also, I can speak for myself, I’m not a Nazi. How can I be if I’m an Amerindian (Blackfoot/Mexican Indian)?
