Anarchists, Nazis and the Battle of 8th and Jefferson

picresized_1289774179_cops 020.jpg
I suppose his hair can grow over that when need be...

Phoenix-area anarchists earned the right to wear their Zapatista-like bandannas Saturday in a full-on street battle at 8th Avenue and Jefferson, with anarchists and assorted counter-demonstrators on one side, and the Phoenix Police Department and a contingent of neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement members on the other.

Although I cannot condone the throwing of rocks and other objects, neither can I ignore the determination and the fierceness of the fight from the anti-fascist side.

(Note: You can check out a slideshow of the day's events, here.)

picresized_1289774824_cops 018.jpg
The, um, pride of the white race...

Unlike the NSM's march to the state Capitol last November, where the anarchists merely taunted the Nazis and vice versa, this time the anarchists came ready to throw down, with a large contingent of members in their "black bloc" attire, linking arms, and refusing to allow the NSM to continue to the Sandra Day O'Connor U.S. Courthouse, where they had a federal permit to rally.

picresized_1289774309_cops 037.jpg
Now this is my kinda clown...

The increasing police presence, dressed in riot gear, with a line of shield-carrying officers facing off the anarchists, was left with a dilemma: How to escort the 46 swastika-lickers in Nazi regalia under their protection through a crowd of 300 counter-demonstrators, many of them actively pushing back on the cops' plastic shields every time the police inched forward?

As the stalemate dragged on for about an hour, the mood remained festive and defiant in the anti-Nazi camp. Demonstrators in clown outfits carried signs reading "Follow your leader," with an image of Adolf Hitler blowing his brains out. One hippie chick moved through the crowd banging her drum, as another gal dressed in a bear outfit did cartwheels.

Other anti-fascists held their ground against the police line, while the neo-Nazis did the Hitler salute and yelled sieg heils. One of the counterprotesters yelled back, "Speak English motherfuckers!" Loved that one.

picresized_1289775158_cops 097.jpg
Cops push, counter-demonstrators push back...

The Nazi-haters chanted slogans like, "Fuck you, Nazis, fuck you!," "Hey, Nazi, you're an immigrant too," and "Hiding behind the cops," which, of course, the so-called master race was doing. There were at least a hundred cops out there, maybe more. If the Nazis had not had that cordon, the anarchists would have eaten them alive.

The anarchists were ticked and looking forward to a melee. Rocks and other objects sailed over the heads of the cops and hit some of the Nazis, as well as some cops and bystanders. (Two alleged rock-hurlers were arrested by the Phoenix PD.)

Nails were strewn all over the street, I suppose to halt police vehicles. Dozens of anarchists pushed against police shields, anticipating an advance, which they knew had to come.

picresized_1289774923_cops 107.jpg
Battle lines are drawn...

This police advance was eventually achieved through the liberal use of pepper spray. Several members of the media, as well as numerous counter-protesters were hit with the debilitating chemical agent, which causes temporary blindness and an intense burn in the eyes and on the skin.

As with videographer Dennis Gilman, a cameraman from ABC 15 and other journos, as well as numerous protesters, I earned a face full of the noxious goo. I expected aerosol, but got a blast of viscous yellow liquid instead. Nurse, Quaker and social justice advocate Jason Odhner tended to my eyes, and members of a contingent of Unitarians helped me and others so hit. I'm grateful for their assistance.

By the time I was able to see, the action had moved down the street and my shirt, drenched in dreaded oleoresin capsicum had to be ditched. Fortunately, I had another shirt in my trunk, so as soon as I was able to get to my car and don that, I headed back to the federal building where the Nazis had taken center stage on the courthouse plaza.

There they were protected by barricades, and a large force of federal and local police. NSM "commander" Jeff Schoep droned before his little group of Schutzstaffel-wannabes, which was smaller than last year's showing. At one point he claimed that the NSM's numbers were "growing by the hour," a statement belied by the almost entirely empty plaza, save for the cops and the press corps.

Media was kept at a far distance from the goosesteppers, though I'm not sure why. As such, with the poor sound coming from the rinky-dink system the Nazis had, you could barely make out what Schoep, dressed as a two-bit gangster in a gray pinstripe suit, was saying.

Generally, the rally itself was pretty anticlimactic. The counter-protesters were obviously not allowed to go up on the plaza, so they were left to agitate from the sidelines.

At one point a bald-headed J.T. Ready -- who marched with the NSMers, even though he's stated that he's left the organization -- ended up separated from the Nazis on the plaza. A throng of anarchists pounced on him like flies on a melted Milky Way bar.

picresized_1289776730_picresized_1289701680_cops 111.jpg
Neo-Nazi J.T. Ready (left) receives help from an unlikely source...

But Ready received help from an odd source -- a large African-American gent, who came to his aid and acted as a temporary bodyguard, staying with Ready till he was in an area with plenty of cops and marshals about. (Was the man himself an undercover cop? I have no idea.) I heard Ready's unlikely defender tell Ready, "You have every right to be here," as one anarchist lobbed a loogie at Ready and hit bullseye.

Earlier in the day, as the Nazis assembled at a parking lot just north of 12th Avenue and Washington Street, Ready told me he was marching in solidarity with the NSM because of the pro-SB 1070 message of the march. (The NSM was in part protesting the enjoinment of much of the law by a federal judge in July.)

I asked Ready what he thought of his erstwhile pal and now state Senate President-elect Russell Pearce's recent announcement that the Nazis were not welcome. This, despite the fact that Pearce and the Nazis hold similar views on immigration. Is Pearce a hypocrite?

"Maybe he needs to be more honest about what some of his views are," said Ready of his former mentor, hinting, "Maybe some of those views will be coming to the surface real soon."

picresized_1289775049_cops 040.jpg
As does tear-gas...

Of course, Pearce and his bigoted clique are one reason neo-Nazis and white supremacists are drawn to Sand Land. Arizona is the state of hate, fertile ground for racist proselytizing. Pearce denouncing the Nazis is about as believable as Rand Paul denouncing the Tea Party, were the latter ever to occur.

Interesting aside, the Nazis were late to their own parade. Ten minutes past their start time of 1 p.m., Phoenix police were waiting for them to show. While I was standing there, one of the Nazis called a cop via cell phone, and let him know they'd lost their way but would be there soon.

So much for Aryan efficiency.

Later that night, the Nazis purportedly assembled for an after-party at the same secluded spot in Tonopah, where the White Knights of America hold their annual Oi Fest. You can actually check out neo-Nazi Harry Hughes's review of this year's Oi Fest on his blog site, "Just Another Day."

In fact, the Nazis invited me out to Tonopah. (No, really.) Which, admittedly, sounds like the lead in to my last will and testament. If I'd gone, I'd planned to have various elements on standby to respond if I didn't phone in every 20 minutes. And I was not planning on going alone.

But curious though I was to see my first swastika-burning (I'm told they do that kind of thing occasionally), the effects of the pepper spray lingered in my lungs and on my skin, and I was eager to get home and get it off my body.

picresized_1289774462_cops 126.jpg
Quaker nurse Jason Odhner (left), and a Unitarian angel of mercy

Unfortunately, showering reactivates the chemicals, and I think that the second dose of pepper spay I got while showering was worse on my lungs than the first. I had taken the precautions recommended to me by nurse Odhner. After an hour-long coughing fit, I decided to call it a night.

NSM "captain" Charles Wilson has informed me that the NSM may be back for another round in December. Perhaps I'll have another shot at them then. If I come out of it with all my teeth in tact, it could make for an interesting story.

I'm sure my nativist foes will dig radio host Carlos Galindo's video of me sitting on a curb enjoying a little pain courtesy of Phoenix's finest. Some folks have suggested I may have been targeted in some way by the cops. I seriously doubt that. The spraying was indiscriminate, and covered activists and journalists alike. I was just in the wrong place at the right time. As were many others.

Hey Unclecrackhead..how about posting your real name and picture before you call someone else out for trying to avoid something as toxic as pepper spray? In addition, how sophisticated it to use adjectives such as p_ _ _ _? Really? I am sure that you can come up with more appropriate language to get your point across without attacking someone else???

I feel ashamed of what this State has become. Its not Arizona anymore. Its a Communist State with hate, discontent and racist lobiest and legislators at the Center of the Capitol. Yes the people that represent Us are Racist. They make Stupid laws, they make fake shootings as for example that sheriff in Pinal County with the self inflicted wound/shooting. The Phoenix P.D. One of the most corrupt Police Agencies in the Country. and the Dirty Loundry goes on, and On and On. Jam Brewer, Russul Pears, Joe Arpayo, and that Pinal County Sheriff, what ever his name is you guys are a joke and give Arizona A BAD reputation and Name. God help you guys/Hungry for power.

For the pro-illegals, anyone who happens to have a point of agreement with a neo-Nazi, are themselves neo-Nazis even if they disagree with Nazis overall view point. The tortured logic goes like this: "OMG!!! The Nazis support SB 1070 Nazis oppose illegal immigration!!!!!! You are associating yourself with Nazi veiws if you support enforcement of immigration laws!!!!! This highly irrational, hysterical, logically allergic viewpoint is a strategy to attempt to scare us from speaking the truth. They want us so afraid of being associated with Nazis that we censor ourselves from stating facts. Its another Marxist inspired strategy of silencing debate, because they know they are wrong.

The constitution should not be seen as a limit on what humans can do. The constitution is a limit on what the federal government can do.....so while the feds cannot rule in favor of squashing the first amendment, no such limitation extends to civilians. We can disrupt a nazi rally all we want, event though the feds can. It has nothing to do with the constitution, which is a limit on the federal government, but is not a list of ethical commandments on civilians.

Anarchists dont give a shit about your laws anyways. We just know we hate Nazi scum. We dont care about whether its legal.

Most Nazis are violent when it suits them. They are tactically passive at rallies, because they dont have the numbers to win a riot, but they are violent hateful people who advocate violent overthrow of the government....not the Anarchists, the Nazis.'The Nazis should be beaten into submission every time they show their ugly faces. White people who are not fucking idiots should team up with black and Hispanic citizens who have had enough racism, and together we should beat the living shit out of every nazi on sight, if not do worse.

Thanks a lot you Nazi fucks. Everytime we take a step forward to stopping illegal immigration you nimrods push us two steps back. You don't represent us and you need to just go away. The battle is hard enough without you morons pushing your hate. Sure you have a right to assemble and protest just like any other group. But don't expect us that are trying to stop illegal immigration through the legal process to stand behind you.

No, I'm sorry, we've had enough of the Nazi message to finally be able to say, after 70+ years, that we've heard this message before. I say "DO NOT ALLOW THE NAZIS TO MARCH IN AMERICA!". The Nazis represent racist extermination. The NSM is NOT the "better man". Keep pushing back against racism, against the Nazis. And, YES, the media should cover every single instance when the Nazis, or anyone like them, are pushed back. The People of the State of Arizona have enacted laws that need to be broken, and the only alternative to legislation appears to be demonstration.

Since when did ignoring a problem ever make it go away?

As a gay man, there's no way in hell I'm gonna give Nazis a chance to take even an iota of power in my state. You have to understand that Nazism is not pure ideology, but a real threat to the well being of queers, Jews, people of color and anybody else who stands in their way. Fascism must be confronted wherever it arises.

Lou
Lou

I am not condoning their ideology by any means, simply pointing out that the reaction from the anti-nazi protest that showed up was to engage in the "illegal" behavior. I personally do not agree with what the NSM or any similar group stand for, but I am not going to take any action against them at a rally unless I feel that my friends, (which include the minority groups that they spout their rhetoric about) family, or my own person are in danger.

Confront fascism by all means if you wish, we are free to do so. However, assault is against the law. If that is the way people choose to confront others, they are no better than the people that they protest.

THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOTHING BUT RACEST..... HATER'S ...BIGOTT'S ARE DIOING WRONG..!! AND YES THEY ARE LEADING THERE PEOPLE TO THE SLAUGHTER AS HITLER DID...ANOTHER ANTI-CHRIST SPIRIT ON THE MOVE..BUT THE BIBLE SPEAK'S OF THIS HATRED THAT STARTED WITH THE FIRST MURDER IN THE BIBLE..WHEN CAIN KILLED HIS HALF BROTHER ABLE IN GENESIS...The issue is worship

1. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? Revelation 13:3, 4

2. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:8

3. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Revelation 13:12

4. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Revelation 13:15

5. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. Revelation 16:2

6. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. Revelation 19:20

Worship—To fawn or crouch literal or figurative. To prostrate oneself in homage (do reverence to, adore). Honor, respect, civil deference. To perform religious service.

In order to serve God correctly, we must be born again; renewed in the spirit of our mind. This will purify the heart and renew the mind, giving us a desire for knowing and loving God. Further it will give us a willing heart to obey His requirements. This is true worship.

Seal—Evidence of authority.

• Confirm, ratify or establish.

• To mark as ones property and secure from danger.

• To imprint on the mind. (See Job 33:16)

• To stamp (with a signet or private mark) for security or preservation to keep secret.

To be sealed means a settling into the truth both spiritually and intellectually so that you cannot be moved from the truth, and your allegiance to God.

Mark—Sign of distinction.

• To give heed or regard.

• Any object used as a guide or to which the mind is directed.

• Stamp, (as a badge of servitude). A scratch or etching.

To be marked means a settling into error, falsehood, and sin, in our practice and thinking, so that we cannot be moved. To receive the mark means to come to the same decision as the beast has done, and to advocate or at least go along and accept the same ideas, in direct opposition to the Word of God.

Antichrist—All who exalt themselves against the will and Word of God have the spirit of antichrist.

Are you preparing for the mark of the beast or the seal of God? This is a most pertinent question. Those who are uniting with the world in attitude and life practice are conforming to a worldly pattern and preparing for the mark of the beast.

In contrast those who are distrustful of self, and who are humbling themselves before God and purifying their souls by obeying the truth are receiving heavens grace and preparing for the seal of God in their foreheads.

Satan’s character—Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44

Character traits of those who follow the lusts of the devil—Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever. 1 John 2:15–17 AMP

THESE HATER'S..NATZIMULATOR'S ARE NOTHING BUT CHILDREN OF THERE FATHER A MURDER FROM THE BEGING AND THERE WORK'S PROOVE THEM OF WHO THEY ARE....BUT DON'T BE AFRAID CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD...THEY ARE FINISHED AND HAVE AN END...WITH THERE FATHER AND HIS ANGEL'S IN THE LAKE OF FIRE PREPARED FOR THEM..AS THE LORD JESUS SAID.LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED... IT'S A FINSHED WORK..ALL THIS WILL PASS AND HAS TO BE FULFILLED SATAN IS DEFEATED AND HIS END IS TOLD....1 Peter 5:8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil ...World English Bible Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. ...Sincerly,The The Baptist

Not everyone in the state supports these stupid and racist policies. When you paint with such a broad and dumb brush, you're just as bigoted and stereotyping as these idiot neo-nazis are.

As I read your story, I would like to add something to the mix. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time when pepper spray was released on an unruly drunk.

I suffered a horrific histamine reaction and anaphylactic shock from being near where this fool was sprayed. I ended up in the ER and almost died from the allergic reaction.

I know this is sort of off topic, but there are those of us out here who have to avoid situations where spray might be used no matter what the cause etc. For a long time I had nightmares that I was somewhere where spray was used and I would wake up in a cold sweat.

This is something that is not well known or well publicized. I knew I had a sensitivity because I had wheezed twice before when someone used chile pepper powder in cooking and I had never wheezed before nor had trouble breathing.

Steven, we hear a lot about tasers killing people but they are often used in concert with pepper spray and I wonder if there are any statistics on allergic reaction deaths.

Anyway, be careful out there.

Punkman77 and Rob,

Even if this group’s participation were to double in the next four years we are looking at 92 individuals but in reality their numbers at these events seem to be dwindling. They walk around with flags, uniforms and hate speech. The opposition threatens the police who are there to keep the peace, spit, throw rocks and counter with more hate speech!

The day they hit the streets and beat up my fellow citizens of any color, religion and even citizens with different political beliefs (MORONS) I will join my fellow PATRIOTS and do my part to stop them. Until then I believe they have a right to do what they do and oppose the spitting and rock throwing!
