Tom Perriello is announcing additional hires for his gubernatorial campaign that represent talent from across the Democratic Party and with deep Virginia ties uniting behind Tom’s new-generation progressive candidacy.

Julia Barnes, a veteran of Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign who led his successful 22-point upset primary victory in New Hampshire, will serve as campaign manager. Pete Brodnitz, a veteran of Virginia Democratic campaigns and former advisor to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, will lead opinion and strategic research as a strategist and pollster. Angelique Cannon-Harris, one of the longest-serving finance aides on Clinton’s presidential campaign and a former top finance aide to Senator Mark Warner, will be a senior advisor, leading the campaign’s finance strategy.

Additionally, Tom has boosted his digital operation by bringing on Revolution Messaging, a firm founded by alumni of President Obama’s 2008 campaign which most recently served as the digital consultant for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

Revolution Messaging will lead the campaign’s digital and online fundraising strategies. The campaign previously announced it had hired Ian Sams, another longtime communications operative for Clinton’s presidential campaign, to lead its communications and messaging operation as communications director.

“This team represents the broad, diverse cross-section of Democrats uniting behind Tom’s next-generation progressive candidacy in Virginia,” said Julia Barnes. “We are excited to get to work to tell Tom’s story across Virginia, helping to build a strong coalition of voters committed to showing Virginia is progressive, inclusive, and a firewall against hate in 2017.”
Additional hires include Brennan Gilmore as chief of staff, Don Mark as deputy campaign manager, Jessica Aune as finance director, Leah Greenberg as policy director, Kimble Reynolds as senior advisor for political affairs, Quena Dailey as deputy political director, Remi Yamamoto as press secretary, and Maggie Thornton as scheduler.
Together, these operatives span the divides within the Democratic Party and show the broad appeal of Tom’s campaign of pragmatic populism and inclusive progressivism.

Perriello staff

Campaign Manager – Julia Barnes


As campaign manager, Julia will lead all campaign strategy and operations. She served as Bernie Sanders’ New Hampshire primary director, overseeing a multi-million dollar budget and leading all efforts to secure Sanders’ 22-point upset victory over Hillary Clinton — the largest for a competitive primary in the history of the state. She later became Sanders’ National Field Director, managing the campaign’s efforts in more than 20 states and steering all campaign organizing, data, training and outreach. She has also served as executive director of the Association of State Democratic Chairs, where she fought for resources for state parties across the country during the 2016 general election, and of the Vermont Democratic Party, where she led state Democrats’ 2014 coordinated campaign.

Strategy and polling – Pete Brodnitz

A veteran of Virginia Democratic politics, Pete — who was pollster for both of Tom’s congressional campaigns — will lead strategic research for the campaign. Pete was a part of the Benenson Strategy Group polling team that advised Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign during the Democratic primary before launching his own firm, Expedition Strategies. Pete’s previous Virginia clients include Senator Tim Kaine, former Senator Jim Webb and former Congressman Rick Boucher.
Senior Advisor – Angelique Cannon-Harris

Angelique will advise Tom on finance strategy. She most recently served as interim national finance director of the Democratic National Committee, after being one of Hillary Clinton’s longest-serving finance aides on her presidential campaign, where she was deputy national finance director for the mid-Atlantic region. Before joining Clinton’s campaign in early 2015, she was the finance director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in the 2012 and 2014 cycles and was previously the top finance aide to Senator Mark Warner.

Chief of Staff – Brennan Gilmore

A Lexington, Va., native and UVA graduate, Brennan will serve as the campaign’s chief of staff, advising Tom on strategy and planning. A career Foreign Service Officer, Brennan previously served in diplomatic posts across Africa and in the State Department in Washington, before being Tom’s top aide as U.S. Envoy to the African Great Lakes Region. He is also an accomplished bluegrass musician.


Deputy Campaign Manager and Political Director – Don Mark

A longtime Democratic operative in Virginia and native of Prince William County, Don will lead the campaign’s political outreach. Prior to the campaign, Don was deputy chief of staff to Mayor Dwight Jones of Richmond. He was the political director for President Obama’s winning 2012 campaign in Virginia, as well as the political director for the Democratic Party of Virginia.

Communications Director – Ian Sams

Ian will lead communications and message strategy for Tom for Virginia. He was one of the earliest communications hires on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in Brooklyn, most recently serving as the regional communications director leading the campaign’s communications strategy in five battleground states, including Virginia. Prior to joining Clinton’s campaign in early 2015, he was a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, where he was deployed to Terry McAuliffe’s 2013 gubernatorial campaign for its final months, and for U.S. Senator Tom Carper of Delaware.

Digital consulting – Revolution Messaging

The team from Revolution Messaging will lead the campaign’s online fundraising, organizing, and digital strategy. Revolution Messaging is a full-service digital agency, which was founded by alumni of President Obama’s 2008 campaign and most recently served as digital firm to Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, running his online fundraising, digital advertising, branding, video creation, website development, online store, and the Artists for Sanders program.

Senior Advisor – Kimble Reynolds

Tom’s former congressional regional director and a former mayor of Martinsville, Va., Kimble will be a senior advisor for political affairs — helping build coalitions of support for Tom’s campaign and liaising with elected officials in-state.

Finance Director – Jessica Aune

Jessica comes to Tom for Virginia from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, where she was the DSCC’s West Finance Director for the 2016 cycle. Previously she has worked in fundraising at House Majority PAC and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Policy Director – Leah Greenberg

Leah will lead policy development for Tom’s campaign. Most recently, Leah joined a group of former congressional aides to help found the Indivisible Project, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering grassroots activists to resist the Trump agenda through congressional advocacy, and worked at Humanity United, a philanthropy focused on tackling difficult global problems such as human trafficking and violent conflict. Previously, she was an advisor to Tom at the Department of State and in his congressional office.

Press Secretary – Remi Yamamoto

Remi will serve as the campaign’s press secretary. She was most recently the regional press secretary for Richmond, Central, and Southwest Virginia on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in Virginia. Prior to that, she was a senior associate at Precision Strategies, where she worked for a range of political, corporate and non-profit clients. She is also an alumna of President Obama’s 2012 campaign and the White House.

Scheduler – Maggie Thornton

A former aide on Tom’s 2010 reelection campaign, Maggie will lead scheduling for the campaign. A Southwest Virginia native and UVA graduate, she previously worked on President Obama’s successful 2008 campaign in Virginia, on Creigh Deeds’ 2009 gubernatorial campaign, and most recently was deputy campaign manager for Jane Dittmar’s congressional campaign in the Fifth Congressional District. From 2011-2016, she was also an English teacher in Virginia public schools.

Deputy Political Director – Arquena “Quena” Dailey, MPA

Quena will help lead Tom’s political outreach in-state, focusing on building coalitions of support in communities across Virginia. Previously, Quena was the deputy political director for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in Virginia. A Hampton Roads resident, she is an executive board member of the Hampton Democratic Committee and has previously worked for the District of Columbia and the Virginia General Assembly.

Alt-Right Turns Against ‘Unite the Right’ Organizer Jason Kessler, Labels Him ‘Soros/Deep State Plant’: In the aftermath of the violence-plagued Charlottesville rally, former white nationalist allies peddled a conspiracy theory suggesting Kessler is a left-wing provocateur.

It only took a matter of days for “pro-white” protest organizer Jason Kessler, whose “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia ended in a disastrous episode of violence on 12 August 2017, to go from being a darling of the alt-right movement to a target of one of their paranoid conspiracy theories.

In keeping with the preferred alt-right explanation of why the Charlottesville event went south, namely the machinations of a vast left-wing conspiracy to foment racial violence and spark a civil war, alternative media outlets began accusing Kessler of being a “deep state” operative in the pay of billionaire leftist George Soros.

Among those was the pro-Trump news and opinion web site DC Whispers, who reported:

Well this is fishy. His name is Jason Kessler. He is the one cited as the organizer of the now infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The thing is, Mr. Kessler’s arrival on the “alt right” and/or “White Nationalist” scene didn’t occur until November 2016.

That’s right – Kessler didn’t start his white nationalist activism until after Donald Trump won the White House. Prior to that it appears he participated in the far left/socialist Occupy Wall Street movement
as noted by the far-left, George Soros-funded Southern Poverty Law Center.



It is well known how much the DEEP STATE despises POTUS Trump. Is it beyond the realm of possibility to consider Jason Kessler and others like him are actually DEEP STATE operatives working to further divide and conqueror America? Trump is a direct threat to that plan. Why not paint Trump with the broad strokes of racism, hatred and bigotry in order to further erode his millions strong base of support?



Is Jason Kessler a misguided activist or a willing pawn in a much larger psy-ops program that is at this very moment rippling across the country? Who knows. There is certainly enough already there, though, to make one say “hmmm….”


A blogger for Rightwing News wrote:

Jason Kessler is the organizer of Unite the Right, the group of white nationalists that duked it out with Black Lives Matter and Antifa in Charlottesville, Virginia where one woman and two police officers were killed. The source of the information is even more surprising, but as far as I can tell, it’s legitimate. The Southern Poverty Law Center is reporting that Kessler was a part of Occupy Wall Street and voted for Barack Obama and supported him for eight years. Gee… and now he’s a white supremacist. Strange days.

Who is this guy? Is this a mistake or is he indeed a liberal gone racist? Is he a plant and this whole thing a setup to pit Americans against each other? Lots of questions and very, very few answers. Kessler has also written for major publicans such as The Daily Mail, who now has cut him loose and has distanced themselves from him. I don’t blame them in the least. Everything about this guy is off and suspect now. He just got thrown out of an interview… I guess he was chased out and mobbed over his racist leanings. But he is scheduled to do another rally in Dallas shortly and has vowed to step up his racist cause. Kessler is doing major damage out there and he is not what he seems. I suspect he’s a Marxist as well.


Far-right celebs were also sharing dark suspicions about Kessler’s ideological purity:

6:30 PM - Aug 14, 2017


We, too, have spoken to Kessler, and we’ve looked into a number of the claims these and other sources have leveled against him to make the case that he’s a left-wing operative. This is what we learned:

Was Jason Kessler a Barack Obama supporter?

True. He told us (and has consistently said elsewhere) that he was an Obama supporter and voted for him.
He says he began to sour on Obama and the Democrats during Obama’s second administration because of their focus on what Kessler terms “identity politics.”

Was Kessler involved in the Occupy movement?

Mostly false. According to Kessler, Occupy’s “anti-globalist” stance caught his interest in 2011 and he attended an Occupy Charlottesville demonstration
, but found he didn’t see eye-to-eye with the group in a confrontation he described as none too friendly. (The source typically cited to support the claim that he was “involved” in the Occupy movement, a Southern Poverty Law Center dossier on Kessler’s political history, uses the phrase “apparent involvement” and supplies no evidence to indicate he had anything other than a relatively brief encounter with the Charlottesville contingent.)

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city, Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

-- Jason Kessler, by Southern Poverty Law Center


Did Kessler write articles for CNN that were sympathetic to the Occupy movement?

False. Kessler says he never worked for CNN, and we spoke to a source at CNN who confirmed it. A writer named Jason Kessler was once employed by CNN, and he did cover Occupy Wall Street protests among many other topics, but according to CNN it was not the same Jason Kessler who went on to lead Unite the Right.

Did Kessler accept a $1,320 campaign consulting fee from a Democratic Congressional candidate in 2012?

False. Kessler told us he has never received money from any political campaign. Moreover, the “proof” offered up by Kessler’s accusers, a screenshot of a Federal Elections Commission entry showing that a “Jason Kessler” received that amount from the 2012 Congressional campaign of North Carolina Democrat Charles Murphy, is easily debunked. Looking deeper, we discovered that the Jason Kessler listed there was: a) a North Carolina resident (Unite the Right’s Jason Kessler was, and remains, a resident of Charlottesville, Virginia);
b) Charles Murphy’s campaign manager.

Did Kessler change his political views only after Donald Trump succeeded in being elected president?

False. As we mentioned above, Kessler says his political views began to evolve during Obama’s second term in office as he became more and more disaffected by the left’s dogmatic emphasis on racial identity politics. Looking at his blog posts from late 2015, we find him reluctant to reveal much about those views:

Despite having a definite viewpoint, I have sympathies with both the left & right of political/social thought. I want both in my readership. Therefore the political thought of my private life will be kept private until such time as it is relevant to my work or a critique of my work, as I’ve stated.


By February 2016, however, we find Kessler openly condemning the Democratic Party as the “‘Unite to Get Whitey’ party” and complaining about the “anti-white media and anti-white laws”:

I’m actually really okay with Beyonce’s racial advocacy at the Superbowl. I’m a big proponent of free speech across the board. I think it’s really important for white people not to whine about it like little bitches. Then they’re just playing into the same victim game. They are affirming and condoning it as ​a reasonable discourse in 21st century America. I do however feel like white people, just like any group based on race, religion or creed, should be able to advocate their interests without facing discrimination for it from the culture at large.

Every group is allowed to lobby based on their identity except white people (and men but that’s another story). The Democrats are essentially the “Unite to Get Whitey” party. There will come a time when white people understand that they also need to stick together as a political force. Otherwise we’ll keep being bombarded by anti-white media & anti-white laws.

We’re going to be a minority soon & we’re already treated like one. Don’t think we aren’t going to be oppressed more & more if we can’t stand up for ourselves.


More chillingly, Kessler speaks of the importance of tribes and civilizations “clashing” for the good of natural selection:

Cultures, tribes & civilizations are meant to clash just as we always have in the past, just like it is with nearly every other beast in the animal kingdom. We are beasts. We share 99% of our DNA with bonobos and almost as much with the other Great Apes. Competition is part of natural selection and evolution. Sorry Marxists, your vision of utopia will never exist because it is counter to human nature. The more your “oppressed” groups gain power the more they will use it to enact revenge.

​Conflict is how we adapt. This is how stronger cultures survive while degenerate cultures (drug use, sexual irresponsibility, failure to comply with societal expectations like laws, etc.) must learn to either adapt or assimilate.

This social engineering project the West has engaged in is a failure. The more righteous cultures are dragged down by the dead weight of failed ones. More than that, failed cultures are given competitive advantages just so they can keep tearing down the responsible, hardworking individuals.


In October 2016, Kessler went on a rant criticizing the major social media platforms for, in his view, “censoring” conservative viewpoints:

The owner of Twitter is a vocal Black Lives Matter supporter and regular bans and censors prominent conservatives like Milo Yiannopoulos and Chuck Johnson (the reporter who outed UVA rape hoaxer Jackie Coakley). Can you imagine if Bell Telephone Company or AT&T lines had been monitored by billionaire plutocrats for “incorrect speech” as the views of social media users today are?


He was also moved to express support for a strong critic of Black Lives Matter, University of Virginia lecturer Doug Muir, who had called BLM “racist.” In the process, Kessler himself described BLM as “a group which has advocated for the killing of white police officers on many occasions”:

Since the 1960’s when the roots of far-left liberal activism reached maturation we’ve seen many successful attempts to create “choking points” around free speech. These tactics were outlined by dedicated Communist Saul Alinsky in his book “Rules for Radicals”. Just like you can assault an army in more directions than just head on (from the side through an underpass, etc.) there are several ways to deny people their rights in ways unknown to the founding fathers. One of which we see on campuses throughout the nation where any professor who makes remarks critical of multiculturalism or political correctness is, cajoled, fired, or intimidated into silence. We saw this recently in the public tarring and feathering of UVA lecturer Doug Muir, who dared to claim that Black Lives Matter is a racist group on Facebook. For the record, Black Lives Matter is a group which has advocated for the killing of white police officers on many occasions. We can see the fruits of their labors in the five police officers slain by a BLM member in Dallas, Texas. Their critics point out that they exploit the crime epidemic in inner city ghettos in order to advocate policy preferences and benefits for their racial in-group.


In November 2016, Kessler campaigned for the removal from office of Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy, who had called for the removal of Charlottesville’s Robert E. Lee statue (the same statue, in fact, around whose fate Kessler would organize his Unite the Right rally in 2017).

And in December 2016, a seemingly jubilant Kessler celebrated the election of President Donald Trump and “the end of identity politics”:

2016 was an unprecedented year in the history of our democracy. After decades of stigmatization and encroaching government oppression the white, blue collar heartland of America stood up against the forces of globalization, free trade, and open-borders. They voted down the displacement of American citizens by illegal labor and overzealous immigration from the most extreme Islamic countries on Earth. They banished Hillary Clinton to the legacy of a two-time loser in the footnotes of history and they sent Donald J. Trump to the White House.


None of this reads to us like the history of a man who underwent a sudden, “feigned” conversion to an alt-right, “pro-white” political stance in the wake of the election of Trump (for whom Kessler voted, he told us, and whose presidency he still supports). The evidence shows, rather, that Kessler was already evincing well-developed “white identity” views by February 2016, and has consistently reviled the left and expressed solidarity with the alt-right ever since.

It would appear that his former alt-right compatriots sensed a convenient scapegoat in Kessler — someone they could easily finger as a patsy of George Soros and the Clinton-Obama “deep state” in their rush to blame the Charlottesville debacle on a left-wing conspiracy. Given that he organized the event and set its agenda, Kessler indeed bears some responsibility for what happened there, but he does so not as some imagined “Soros/deep state plant,” but rather as a legitimate figurehead of the alt-right white nationalist movement.

5 Ways to Turn a Liberal Into a Conservative (At Least Until the Hangover Sets In)

By Chris Mooney, a science and political journalist, blogger, podcaster, and experienced trainer of scientists in the art of communication. He is the author of four books, including the just-released The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Deny Science and Reality and the New York Times-bestselling The Republican War on Science. He blogs for Science Progress, a website of the Center for American Progress and Center for American Progress Action Fund, and is a host of the Point of Inquiry podcast.

One of the first questions that usually comes up when people ask me about my book The Republican Brain is: “How do you explain my Uncle Elmer, who grew up a hard core Democrat and was very active in the union, but now has a bumper sticker that reads ‘Don’t Tread on Me’?”

Okay: I’m making this question up, but it’s pretty close to reality. People constantly want to know how to explain political conversions—cases in which individuals have changed political outlooks, sometimes very dramatically, from left to right or right to left.

When I get the standard political conversion question, the one I ask in return may come as a surprise: “Are you talking about permanent political conversions, or temporary ones?”

You see, Uncle Elmer is less interesting to me—and in some ways, less interesting to the emerging science of political ideology—than the committed Democrat who became strongly supportive of George W. Bush right after 9/11, but switched back to hating him a few months later. What caused that to happen? Because it certainly doesn’t seem to have much to do with thinking carefully about the issues.

Indeed, the growing science of politics has uncovered a variety of interventions that can shift liberal people temporarily to the political right. And notably, none of them seem to have anything substantive to do with policy, or with the widely understood political differences between Democrats and Republicans.

Here is a list of five things that can make a liberal change his or her stripes:

Distraction. Several studies have shown that “cognitive load”—in other words, requiring people to do something that consumes most or all of their attention, like listening to a piece of music and noting how many tones come before each change in pitch—produces a conservative political shift.

In one study, for instance, liberal and conservative subjects were asked whether government health care should be extended to a hypothetical group of AIDS victims who were responsible for their own fates (they’d contracted the disease while knowing the risks, and having unprotected sex anyway). Liberals who were not under load—not distracted—wanted to help such people, despite the fact that they were personally responsible for their plight. But liberals under load were much more like conservatives, appearing to reason that this group of AIDS victims had gotten what they deserved. (Cognitive load did not appear to change the view of conservatives in the study.)

Drunkenness. Alcohol intoxication is not unlike cognitive load, in that it cuts down the capacity for in-depth, nuanced thinking, and privileges economical, quick responses. Sure enough, in a recent study of 85 bar patrons, blood alcohol content was related to increased political conservatism for liberals and conservatives alike.

The drinkers still knew whether they were liberal or conservative, of course. But when asked how much they agreed with a variety of statements of political principles—like, “Production and trade should be free of government interference”—higher blood alcohol content was associated with giving more conservative answers.

Time Pressure. In another study reported in the same paper, participants were asked how much they endorsed a variety of politically tinged words, like “authority” and “civil rights.” In one study condition, they had to see the term and respond to it in about 1.5 seconds; in the other condition, they had 4 seconds to do so. This made a political difference: Subjects under time pressure were more likely to endorse conservative terms.

Cleanliness/Purity. In another fascinating study, subjects who were asked political questions near a hand sanitizer, or asked to use a hand wipe before responding, also showed a rightward shift. In this case, political conservatism was being tied not to distraction, but rather, to disgust sensitivity—an emotional response to preserve bodily purity.

Fear. After 9/11, public support for President George W. Bush also immediately swelled. In fact, a study showed that Bush’s approval ratings increased whenever terror alert levels were issued by the Department of Homeland Security. Meanwhile, the phenomenon of “liberal hawks” who wanted to attack Iraq was much remarked upon. Why is that?

The answer seems to involve the amygdala, a region of the emotional brain that conditions our life-preserving responses to danger. Its activity seems to have political implications: When we’re deeply afraid, tough and decisive leaders are more appealing to us. So are militaristic and absolute responses, like going to war and the death penalty; things like civil liberties, meanwhile, matter less to us.

It is unlikely that all of the phenomena discussed above involve the same cognitive mechanism. For instance, disgust sensitivity is probably operating through a different part of the brain than fear sensitivity. Still, priming people to feel either fear or disgust (or the need for cleanliness) seems to favor political conservatism, and politically conservative candidates.

What all of this suggests is a pretty stunning conclusion: Maybe we’ve been thinking about political ideology in very much the wrong way. It seems to be at least partly rooted in things deeper and more primal than the policy issues of the day, and how we individually reason that we ought to handle them.

Moreover, it is striking that the research literature does not, at least at present, contain such a plethora of ways to bring about a temporary liberal shift—to make conservatives move left. Instead, what these cases seem to reveal are some inherent conservative political advantages, especially at times of deep fear, uncertainty, and stress. (And we’ve seen some of those recently.)

Aristotle famously wrote that “man is by nature a political animal.” Perhaps it’s about time that we pay more attention to what the word “nature” here really means.

• He was slammed by attendees of rally, including Richard Spencer, for vile tweet
By Jessica Finn and Valerie Edwards For Dailymail.com

The organizer of the racist Charlottesville rally who tweeted that the slain Heather Heyer is a 'fat, disgusting Communist' has blamed booze and a cocktail of drugs on the vile outburst.

Jason Kessler tweeted on Friday night: 'Heather Heyer was a fat, disgusting Communist. Communists have killed 94 million. Looks like it was payback time.'

The shocking post immediately drew a massive backlash from both sides.

Kessler then backtracked. First he said his account was hacked and then, on Saturday, he blamed the remark on a prescription cocktail of Xanax and Ambien, fueled by alcohol.

A short time later he deleted his Twitter account as it was revealed he has gone into hiding because of the response to the march in Virginia that left Heyer dead.

Kessler also apologized for the Heyer tweet, calling his words 'heinous' and explained further he's been under 'a crushing amount of stress and death threats' in an attempt to excuse himself for his remarks.

However, the damage was already done. The tweet drew ire from fellow white nationalists, including Richard Spencer.

He condemned the tweet from Kessler's account shortly after it was published on Friday night.

'I will no longer associate w/ Jason Kessler; no one should. Heyer's death was deeply saddening. "Payback" is a morally reprehensible idea,' Spencer wrote.

Kessler originally claimed his Twitter account was hacked before backtracking and admitting to being on drugs when he tweeted.

'I was hacked last night. I apologize for the tweet sent out from my account last night,' he wrote around 4:30am.

After he confessed that he was on drugs, he added the drugs have a blackout effect on his actions when he's under the influence.

'I sometimes wake up having done strange things I don't remember,' Kessler concluded on Twitter.

Shortly after he conceded his drug use, the Charlottesville rally organizer, switched his account to private mode, before deleting it entirely.

The crude Friday tweet linked to a story on the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer that also insulted Heyer, 32, who was killed after suspected driver, James Alex Fields Jr, 20, rammed his Dodge Challenger into a group of protesters last weekend.


Heyer, who was a paralegal, died at the scene and 19 others were injured. A police helicopter monitoring the event later crashed, killing two troopers on board.

Another far-right figure who attended the rally also slammed Kessler for the tweet.

'This is terribly wrong and vile. We should not rejoice at the people who died in Charlottesville just because we disagree with them,' wrote Tim Gionet, who goes by the name Baked Alaska on Twitter.


A social media user claiming to be Daily Stormer staffer Andrew Auernheimer said he had hacked Kessler's account, but that has not been confirmed, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Kessler told Fox News on Thursday that he plans to lay low because of the death threats he has received since the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12.

The rally turned deadly when a car rammed into a group of people protesting against white supremacy.

Fields, who is accused of killing one person and wounding 19 others, was charged with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death.

On Friday, five additional charges were added and include two more counts of malicious wounding and three counts of aggravated malicious wounding, police said.

Kessler told Fox that he has 'never met' Fields, the suspected driver of the car.

When he was asked about Heyer, Kessler said: 'No comment.' Kessler said he leads a 'civil rights group', not white supremacists.

He said his objections are with identity politics including 'discriminatory policies of affirmative action, college admissions, history books being rewritten, blaming American whites for slavery'.

He told the outlet 'every culture had slavery', not only white Americans and he also blamed the 'existential crisis of immigration, mass immigration from third world countries'.

Kessler said he met with Charlottesville police multiple times ahead of the rally on Saturday and went over the city's safety plan with a police liaison.

He also told the outlet that the captain 'let slip' that officials 'did not use government servers because they did not want to get FOIA'd', in reference to the Freedom of Information Act.

'I've done nothing wrong,' he said, adding that authorities have not contacted him since the rally.

Kessler said that even though officials had given Kessler's group a specific entry way into the park, it was blocked by police when they got there Saturday.

That meant Kessler's group had to walk in close quarters to counter-protesters from Antifa, Black Lives Matter and others.

He told Fox that the clubs, helmets and body armor his group wore were 'for our own safety'.


The day after the protest, Kessler was chased away from a press conference he tried to hold in front of Charlottesville's City Hall.

He was punched in the face and tackled to the ground before he was escorted to safety by police.

Kessler's profile has risen in the self-described 'alt-right' community - an offshoot of conservatism mixing racism, white nationalism and populism - as he publicized his fight to prevent the city from removing a statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee from a city park.

In May, he was one of three people arrested after scuffles broke out by the statue. Police said Kessler wouldn't obey an officer's commands to leave and was inciting others with a bullhorn.

Later that month, he applied for a permit for Saturday's rally, which he told The Associated Press was partly over the statue removal decision but also because an 'anti-white climate'.

Kessler said he does not identify as a white nationalist but told the AP he is concerned about immigration creating an 'ethnic cleansing' of white people.

He said on his webpage that he's a graduate of the University of Virginia and the author of a novel and a book on poetry.

His novel, Badland Blues, is about a homeless dwarf who wins the lottery and his poetry is a rumination on 'debauchery, madness loneliness and death,' according to descriptions on Amazon.

George Soros Gives Additional $250k to Tom Perriello for Virginia Primary Bid: Perriello took $250k from Soros in January, outpacing opponents in out-of-state cash

Liberal billionaire George Soros gave an additional $250,000 to Virginia Democrat Tom Perriello in May, bringing his total contributions to the former one-term congressman's primary to $500,000, according to a campaign finance report filed on Monday.

Together with $50,000 that was given to Perriello from Soros's son Gregory, money from the Soros family accounted for 16 percent of the money the campaign brought in between April 1 and June 1 of this year.

The new contributions come after Soros gave $250,000 to Perriello in January and two of his other sons—Alexander and Jonathan—gave $135,470 to Perriello in March, bringing the total amount the Soros family has given to Perriello to $685,470.

Soros was not the only Democratic mega-donor to chip in during the final two months of Perriello's push to defeat Virginia lieutenant governor Ralph Northam in the June 13 Democratic gubernatorial primary.

Joining Soros with $300,000 worth of contributions is Donald Sussman, a hedge fund manager who sits on the board of directors at the Center for American Progress. Perriello was president and chief executive officer for the Center for American Progress Action Fund from 2011 to 2014.

Sussman says he spent $40 million supporting groups backing Democrat Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 presidential bid. He said his goal was to "get money out of politics."

Sussman purchased a $27.5 million mansion in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., this January.

Despite the big-dollar contributions from liberal mega-donors, Perriello was outpaced by Northam, who spent about $1 million more than Perriello during the two-month period and still entered June with about $400,000 more cash-in-hand than Perriello.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch also notes that a large bulk of contributions to Northam in the period came from inside Virginia while Perriello was boosted largely from out-of-state donors.


"Just 28.3 percent of Perriello's contributions for the period came from donors with a Virginia address, according to VPAP," the Times-Dispatch wrote Tuesday. "Roughly 87.8 percent of Northam's money came from Virginia donors."

Perriello communications director Ian Sams countered critiques that the campaign was receiving so much money from out-of-state by pointing out that Democratic governor Terry McAuliffe, who is supporting Lieutenant Governor Northam, received just 31 percent of his contributions from Virginians during his 2013 campaign.

Sams denied a Washington Free Beacon request to elaborate on his tweets defending the amount of money Perriello received from out-of-state.

Perriello's rate of out-of-state contributions increased in his campaign’s most recent filing.

Entering the most recent filing period, Perriello had received 56 percent of his contributions from out-of-state, with $806,372 coming from New York and just over $100,000 from both California and Washington, D.C.

Hypocrisy Alert: Tom Perriello Accepts Hundreds of Thousands from George Soros While Bemoaning Big Money In Politics

Democrat candidate for Virginia governor Tom Perriello has claimed he opposes the influence of big money in Virginia politics, calling it “hugely problematic” in an interview last month. But this hasn’t stopped the failed former congressman from accepting large contributions from infamous liberal billionaires like George Soros. This morning, the Washington Post reported that not only did Perriello take half a million dollars from a single Democrat donor to start his campaign, but he has also taken over $375,000 from George Soros and his son.

This is another example of Tom Perriello saying one thing to voters but doing the opposite for the sake of political convenience. As University of Virginia political analyst Larry Sabato recently noted, “Perriello is obviously more than willing to present himself as whatever he needs to be at any given gathering.” This kind of hypocrisy is not what Virginians deserve in their next governor.

Organizer Of Charlottesville Rally Jason Kessler Speaks On The Aftermath | Virginia Protests
by The Red Elephants
August 12, 2017



[Partial Transcript]

[Jason Kessler] ... Terry McAuliffe might have been part of a conspiracy to shut down this event.

What happened was we had been working for two months to secure a peaceful, free speech rally in support of the Lee monument, in support of white advocacy, and in support of free speech. And we have worked diligently with the police department to secure that park.

So what happened was, one week before the event, the Charlottesville city manager, who is like an unelected city councilor -- who is the most powerful of the bunch -- he had the event canceled. And they said they would give a permit, but it would have to be at McIntyre Park -- this place that is far away from the Lee statue and has nothing to do with our protest.

So we got the ACLU and the Rutherford Institute to sue on our behalf.

So we took them to court, because they were discriminating against our First Amendment rights based on the content of our speech. A federal judge ruled that that was the case. It was a federal judge who put the permit back in place, because he listened to both sides and he saw that the Charlottesville City Council and City government had granted not one, but two permits to left-wing protesters -- antifa Black Lives Matter -- in the same area! Within one block, there were two spots on either side. So they had already created an unsafe environment by doing that. But their Number One intention was not people's safety, it was trying to disrupt the Alt Right.

So the federal judge puts the permit back in place, because he looked at the evidence and saw that Mayor Mike Signer and Wes Bellamy were repeatedly saying about the August 12th event, Unite the Right, "Oh, it's racist, bigoted; we condemn it; blah blah blah blah blah." So there was content discrimination, viewpoint discrimination. The judge ruled that that was illegal.

So at that point we expected the police to reinstitute their original security plan, because that's what they always said they would do in all the meetings that I had with them. But they didn't do ANYTHING! What you're hearing, if you listen to Fox News, Fox News is cucking 100%. They sound like MSNBC right now. They are talking about white supremacy, and historical racism, blah blah blah blah blah. That is not the case! THE CHARLOTTESVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT DIDN'T SHOW UP! They were supposed to escort our speakers into the event, to keep them free from antifa violence. They didn't do that.

So we had Richard Spencer, Baked Alaska, and some other people got maced in the face on their way into the event.

And so when we got into the event, the barricades were set up in a way that they would be set up if our permit didn't get approved. Right? So they never fixed the barricades. They just said, "Screw it, we're going to --." I believe they said, "Screw it, we're going to cancel this thing no matter what. So we don't need to move the barricades."

So there were barricades in the middle of the park keeping people from moving freely.

And then we started to run out of space, because there was an entire back half of the park which was empty. Why was it empty? It was empty because there were supposed to be 180 cops like in a row. THEY NEVER SHOWED UP! So they had no intention of securing the park.

Then there was a Speaker's Area around the front of the monument. That was supposed to have like our security staff and our speakers. So because we couldn't enter that area, which we had a permitted event we were approved for, we got crammed. So myself, Richard Spencer, and all of our speakers were pushed up against these barricades. THE CHARLOTTESVILLE POLICE WEREN'T THERE! All that was there was the State Police. And the State Police wouldn't let us through. I kept saying, "Look, we are getting pushed against the railings, why are you blocking us from the rest of the park?" They said, "Well, because only the Charlottesville Police Department can remove the barricades." I said, "Get the Charlottesville Police Department out here then! WHERE ARE THEY?!"

So for the next 20 or 30 minutes, we are packed up against a corner of the barricade. I start periscoping saying, "WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY?!" So after about 20 or 30 minutes of that, a column of Charlottesville Police officers march in -- an hour and a half after our permit was supposed to start -- and they immediately declare it an Unlawful Assembly.

They didn't give a damn about public safety. They didn't care about federal law. The only thing that they cared about was stopping the Alt Right. And that's what they did. The Elites in this society, in the media, and in the government, did everything in their power to shut us down in defiance of federal court law. And we're going to have a lawsuit. We've got to fight this. We have to.

Jackson and Calhoun Split over States' Rights

The split between Jackson and Calhoun deepened over another issue. Jackson learned that Calhoun had once called for Jackson's arrest. Calhoun wanted to punish Jackson for his unauthorized military campaign into Spanish Florida in 1818.

The most important division between the two men was Calhoun's belief about who had more power: the states or the federal government. Calhoun came to believe the rights of the states were stronger than the rights of the federal government. His feelings became well known during a debate on a congressional bill.

The year before Jackson took office, Congress passed a bill to require taxes on imports. The purpose of the taxes was to protect American industries.

The state of South Carolina, Calhoun’s state, opposed the measure. South Carolina, like other Southern states, had almost no industry. It was an agricultural area. Import taxes would only raise the price of products the South imported.

South Carolina refused to pay the tax. Calhoun wrote a long statement defending South Carolina's action. In the statement, he developed what was called the Doctrine of Nullification. The doctrine declared that the power of the federal government was not supreme.

Calhoun argued that, instead, supreme power belonged to the states. He said states did not surrender this power when they approved the Constitution. In any dispute between the states and the federal government, he said, the states should decide what is right.

Calhoun argued that if the federal government passed a law that any state thought was not constitutional, or against its interests, that state could temporarily suspend the law.

The other states of the union, Calhoun said, would then be asked to decide the question of the law's constitutionality. If two-thirds of the states approved the law, the complaining state would have to accept it, or leave the union. If less than two-thirds of the states approved it, then the law would be rejected. None of the states would have to obey it. It would be nullified — cancelled.

Senators Robert Hayne of South Carolina and Daniel Webster of Massachusetts debated the question of nullification in Congress. Senator Hayne spoke first. He said that there was no greater evil than giving more power to the federal government. The major point of his speech could be put into a few words: liberty first, union afterwards.

Senator Webster said Hayne had spoken foolishly. Liberty and union could not be separated, Webster said. It was liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable.

I mean, we understood that this was something that they were going to try and do from the beginning. They were game-seshing every way that they could possibly try and defeat the Alt Right at this event, and we outmaneuvered them at every corner. Like because the name of the event is "Unite the Right," the first thing that the media and the Establishment tried to do was sow division. And they tried to say, "Oh, these groups are fighting." But no one was fighting. This was a very cohesive effort amongst the Alt Right and Alt Light for the most part, you know?

Yeah, the blood is on the hands of the Charlottesville City Council, and possibly on Terry McAuliffe. Before the event even started, people were saying that the National Guard might be involved, a State of Emergency might be declared. So they had it in mind that no matter what it takes, we are going to stop the Alt Right. Because they knew that this event would be live-streamed out to the entire world. This was going to bring our movement to a whole new level. And they could not stand that, even if they had to shred the Constitution. And that's what they did. This is an act of war against the American people in my mind, because the only thing that makes our social contract in this society work is our sets of laws. And now we're going to have to fight this further in court. That's the only thing that we can do. If the courts are not going to recognize our First Amendment rights, I don't know where we are as a country. We've lost our First Amendment...

And let me be clear: no matter who it was that did this, even though this is going to be the focus of a lot of press going forward [who was driving the car], it was caused by failure to apply rule of law. The Charlottesville Police stood down, and blood is on their hands. Blood is on the hands of the government officials Wes Bellamy, Mike Signer, who refused to enforce the law, and refused to protect our event.

Q. Now last night we saw live footage of marching -- there had to be at least 2,000 -- I don't care what anyone says when they talk about "hundreds" -- there was about 1,500 to 2,000 Alt Right members marching with torches, standing up for their rights, for the existence of white people saying, "White Lives Matter." What happened to all those people? It didn't seem like those numbers were there today. Or were they? Or was I just watching two different perspectives?

[Jason Kessler] They shut it down before the time the thing was supposed to start, right? The event was supposed to start at 12:00, and they shut it down at 11:30. So people didn't have time to enter the park. The counter-demonstrators were allowed to block us from every angle. And so the people who got into the park got there despite all of the antifa interference. I mean, there was a huge column of people from our side marching up the street, and they didn't count on that. They had Cornell West, and these other Phoney-Commies-Pretending-To-Be-Preachers, who were blocking the way in. And the cops weren't doing anything about that. Our people got in anyway.

But here, this is such a complicated scenario if you weren't here. Let me tell you that it wasn't just today. Yesterday evening the police stood down. Yesterday when we were at UVA we knew that antifa knew about our plan to march to the spot of the Thomas Jefferson statue at the rotunda. So we notified the Charlottesville Police Department. We notified the UVA Police Department. And we told them, "Look, we don't want any violence; we just want to be able to do our demonstration." And my security guy talked to them. And what my security guy told me is that the UVA Police said they were going to show up. They were going to make sure that the area around the monument was free from antifa so there wouldn't be any scuffles. They were going to meet us at the fields where we were going to start our march --

We came to the field. THERE WERE NO COPS THERE; NO POLICE PROTECTION LIKE THEY SAID. Then we marched. Still no cops. Nobody. Then we show up at the statue and there's a ring of antifa Black Lives Matter around the statue, and there's no cops there to keep them separate. THE COPS DID NOTHING!

So you obviously have these two groups who hate each other in that area. And then I didn't see what happened. My security guys pushed me forward. I looked back and I saw some liquid spraying out there, and I thought it might have been something flammable.

Evidently what had happened was that somebody from the left, Black Lives Matter, sprayed mace into the crowd just like wantonly. And then people got agitated and a few fights broke out.

So I lay it 100% on the failure of the government.
