Defense lawyers for anti-racism activists who staged a counter-protest at a white supremacist rally in California in 2016 say that state police demonstrated sympathy for the neo-Nazis who organized the event and worked with them to arrest the counter-demonstrators.
Cops and Nazis—birds of a feather? I suspect, but of course can’t prove, that there was some pre-arrangement between TWP and the Sacramento PD. This dynamic has been seen before.

Does anybody expect the Nazi SS to go after the Nazi SA, who persecute any who would question the fuehrer?
Wake up! This is an old story, much of which happened in 1930s Germany. Sadly, it still goes on today.
Welcome to Nazi Germany everyone! This is exactly the kind of thing that happened in Nazi Germany. If you were a member of the Nazi party, you were above the law, if you opposed their racist and sexist violence, and you were victimized, you were the ones charged with the crime that you were the victim of. This is blame the victim on steroids. The thugs are running the show. It isn’t some kind of leftist deep state taking over law enforcement at all. Republican doublespeak shows that it is a far right, neoNazi deep state and right wing secret society that has actually taken over law enforcement in many cases. This is exactly as I expected. This is part of the Koch brothers evil plan to turn America into a right wing dictatorship. This must be routed out of our country ASAP or else our democracy is over and there will be no more rule of law, just injustice and lawlessness by the wealthy and powerful upon those that they are choosing to oppress. If you are not being oppressed now, just wait, your turn is coming next. We must unite and fight this and stand up for anyone who is being subjected to injustice now before it is too late. We must stand in solidarity with every oppressed group or else we will be next.

Into our town the Hangman came, smelling of gold and blood and flame. And he paced our bricks with a diffident air. And built his frame on the courthouse square.
The scaffold stood by the courthouse side, only as wide as the door was wide; a frame as tall, or little more, than the capping sill of the courthouse door.
And we wondered, whenever we had the time, who the criminal, what the crime, that Hangman judged with the yellow twist of knotted hemp in his busy fist.
And innocent though we were, with dread we passed those eyes of buckshot lead; till one cried: “Hangman, who is he for whom you raise the gallows-tree.”
Then a twinkle grew in the buckshot eye, and he gave us a riddle instead of reply: “He who serves me best,” said he, “Shall earn the rope on the gallows-tree.”
And he stepped down, and laid his hand on a man who came from another land and we breathed again, for another’s grief at the Hangman’s hand was our relief.
And the gallows-frame on the courthouse lawn by tomorrow’s sun would be struck and gone. So we gave him way, and no one spoke, out of respect for his hangman’s cloak.
The next day’s sun looked mildly down on roof and street in our quiet town and, stark and black in the morning air, the gallows-tree on the courthouse square.
And the Hangman stood at his usual stand with the yellow hemp in his busy hand; with his buckshot eye and his jaw like a pike and his air so knowing and businesslike.
And we cried: “Hangman, have you not done, yesterday, with the alien one?” Then we fell silent, and stood amazed: “Oh, not for him was the gallows raised.”
He laughed a laugh as he looked at us: “Did you think I’d gone to all this fuss to hang one man? That’s a thing I do to stretch the rope when the rope is new.”
Then one cried, “Murderer!” One cried, “Shame!” And into our midst the Hangman came to that man’s place. “Do you hold,” said he, “With him that was meant for the gallows-tree?”
And he laid his hand on that one’s arm, and we shrank back in quick alarm, and we gave him way, and no one spoke out of fear of his hangman’s cloak.
That night we saw with dread surprise the Hangman’s scaffold had grown in size. Fed by the blood beneath the chute the gallows-tree had taken root;
Now as wide, or a little more, than the steps that led to the courthouse door, as tall as the writing, or nearly as tall, halfway up on the courthouse wall.
The third he took — we had all heard tell — was a usurer and infidel, And: “What,” said the Hangman, “have you to do with the gallows-bound, and he a Jew?”
And we cried out: “Is this one he who has served you well and faithfully?” The Hangman smiled: “It’s a clever scheme to try the strength of the gallows-beam.”
The fourth man’s dark, accusing song had scratched out comfort hard and long; and “What concern,” he gave us back, “Have you for the doomed - the doomed and black?”
The fifth.The sixth. And we cried again: “Hangman, Hangman, is this the man?” “It’s a trick,” he said, “that we hangmen know for easing the trap when the trap springs slow.”
And so we ceased, and asked no more, as the Hangman tallied his bloody score; and sun by sun, and night by night, the gallows grew to monstrous height.
The wings of the scaffold opened wide till they covered the square from side to side; and the monster cross-beam, looking down, cast its shadow across the town.
Then through the town the Hangman came and called in the empty streets my name - and I looked at the gallows soaring tall and thought: “There is no one left at all for hanging, and so he calls to me to help pull down the gallows-tree.” And I went out with right good hope to the Hangman’s tree and the Hangman’s rope.
He smiled at me as I came down to the courthouse square through the silent town, and supple and stretched in his busy hand was the yellow twist of the hempen strand.
And he whistled his tune as he tried the trap and it sprang down with a ready snap— and then with a smile of awful command he laid his hand upon my hand.
“You tricked me, Hangman!” I shouted then. “That your scaffold was built for other men. And I no henchman of yours,” I cried, “You lied to me, Hangman, foully lied!”
Then a twinkle grew in his buckshot eye: “Lied to you? Tricked you?” he said, "Not I. For I answered straight and I told you true: The scaffold was raised for none but you.
“For who has served me more faithfully than you with your coward’s hope?” said he, “And where are the others that might have stood side by your side in the common good?”
“Dead,” I whispered; and amiably “Murdered,” the Hangman corrected me; “First the alien, then the Jew… I did no more than you let me do.”
Beneath the beam that blocked the sky, none had stood so alone as I - and the Hangman strapped me, and no voice there cried “Stay” for me in the empty square.
With thanks, I imagine, to Martin Niemoller, who also finally stood alone.
And now if we can only get people to listen to what they are trying to tell us… The hour is nigh…
So they ONLY hire nazis? Greeeeaaat.
We must? The political opposition to this snowballing Authoritarianism is feckless & weak. Did Pelosi mention this “side effect” of normalizing disappearings sussing the sheep from the goats?
“Welcome to Nazi Germany everyone!” … Thank you!
And trust that your post may spur more to understand the issue here is one of
self-defense because it is coming at ALL Americans.
Still it was a momentary SHOCK to me.
But trust those readers here will notice your mention of Koch Bros./John Birch Society.
Going back to the murder of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy – a presidential candidate at that
time – the LAPD at the time were John Birch Society.
Additionally, at the time of JFK’s assassination - Dallas Police there were 50% KKK.
As I’ve also mentioned in a previous post, JFK had fired Gen. Edwin G. Walker due to
his efforts to spread right wing propaganda throughout the military – Nazi and KKK
While Kay Griggs has told the story on YouTube of the corruption of our military …
PLUS the fakery of our Drug War which has succeed only in furthering the movement of
drugs across the world
And former NYPD Detective Rothstein has mentioned the failure of our press to mention
the involvement of our military in human trafficking …
that seems to be the world we are awakening to.
