    San Francisco activists plan to confront right-wing rally with dog feces

    San Francisco dog owners plan to create a carpet of excrement at the location where the Patriot Prayer group will be holding a rally. The activists say they’re confronting white supremacists, while the rally’s organizer vehemently denies being one.

    Thousands of people responded to an event posted on Facebook, which calls for dog owners to come to the Crissy Field park in San Francisco and prompt their pets to lay many piles of poop at the location where a right-wing group Patriot Prayer will be holding a rally on Saturday.

    Meanwhile, the founder and organizer of Patriot Prayer, Joey Gibson, says his group and its rallies have been misrepresented.

    “F*** white supremacists! F*** neo-Nazis!” Gibson shouted from the stage of his most recent rally, in Seattle on August 13, according to The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

    For the upcoming event in San Francisco, Gibson’s Facebook page proclaims: “No extremists will be allowed in. No Nazis, Communist, KKK, Antifa, white supremacist, I.E., or white nationalists. … This is an opportunity for moderate (A)mericans to come in with opposing views.”

    It’s a rally to promote love and free speech, Gibson said.

    Heavy restrictions were placed upon participants: no guns or weapons of any kind, no flagpoles, helmets, shields, pepper spray, or even selfie sticks will be permitted, SPLC reported.

    Some white supremacists have attended Patriot Prayer’s previous rallies, SPLC noted. Gibson said they came uninvited. He also claimed that most of the speakers at his rally are non-white, including himself.

    “I’m a person of color. I don’t believe in white supremacy. Otherwise, I would have to punch myself,”
    Gibson said in a recent YouTube video.

    You can easily get agreement between a pig and a cow that wolves are bad, but they can easily fall into the trap where the pig says
    wolves should eat more beef, while the cow recommends a diet of pork.

    They think it's funny, but it's actually a war crime - biological warfare to be precise. It may be a tame example thereof, but it is what it is.

    And it's no surprise whatsoever that nobody had an ethical problem with it.

    It's so totally obnoxious. What is wrong with people right now? I just saw on the BBC that the rally has been cancelled

    San Francisco rally is cancelled by right-wing group

    26 minutes ago

    A "free speech" rally due to be held by right-wing groups in the city of San Francisco on Saturday has been cancelled by its organisers, citing security fears.

    The group Patriot Prayer said it would instead hold a press conference on Saturday at a location outside the protected zone set up by police.

    A permit for the rally was granted earlier this week.

    A counter-march is still due to place on Saturday.

    San Francisco mayor Ed Lee had opposed the "free speech" rally, but he said its location - Crissy Field - was federal land and therefore was not within his jurisdiction.

    -snip-

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi - who represents San Francisco - said before the cancellation that it would be a "white supremacist rally in the middle of a park for families and children".

    But Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson said in a video message posted on the group's Facebook page that it was "absolutely not" white supremacist.

    Mr Gibson pointed out that he is himself mixed race and that all he had been trying to do was to promote freedom, love, peace and free speech.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, does not classify Patriot Prayer in those terms.

    It noted that Mr Gibson denounced white supremacists and neo-Nazis at a rally in Seattle this month.

    Gibson said Pelosi made the gathering “more dangerous.”

    “Nancy Pelosi said it was a white supremacist rally so she could bring out extremists on the right and the left,” Gibson said. “She’s telling white supremacists to come into town.”
    Yes, she did, and I hope she gets called out on it. "Are you seriously calling the non-white organizers White Supremacists, and racists?" is one question that needs to be asked.

    Nancy is a terrorist in my books. She is fomenting violence just as McAuliffe and Signer.

    The left is often not correct, the right is often not right, and we the people are often wronged.
