Reminder: 'Refuse Fascism' Protests to Unseat Trump Begin Nov. 4

Some months ago, a front group for the Revolutionary Communist Party USA declared November 4, 2017, as the day their ambitious attempt to depose the “fascist Trump/Pence regime” begins.

The George Soros-funded group named “Refuse Fascism” is calling on leftists in 20 cities across the nation to take to the streets. They are hoping to spark daily, ongoing protests and actions against the administration that will snowball into a massive revolt:

The group paid for a full-page ad in the New York Times to publicize their effort:

As PJ Media reported a few weeks ago, the slogan for the Antifa-linked group’s upcoming coup attempt is “This Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”:

Our protest must grow day after day and night after night — thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions — determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power.

Our actions will reflect the values of respect for all of humanity and the world we want — in stark contrast to the hate and bigotry of the Trump/Pence fascist regime.

The group is putting out the word to friendly media outlets that the protests are intended to be “non-violent” — but, of course, left-wing protests seldom are:

Sunsara Taylor, who is with the organization, said they are planning “a mass non-violent political protest.” She said “the misinformation and lies being spread by the alt-right echo chamber about Antifa planning a civil war … are lies through and through.”

Taylor herself does not identify as “Antifa,” but said that the group welcomes protestors from all backgrounds, including those “who identify as Antifa, as well as Hillary supporters, Bernie people … ”

Obviously, any protest that welcomes Antifa and “black bloc” anarchist participation has a very high probability of becoming violent — something to keep in mind if you live in any of the cities on Refuse Fascism’s list:

Refuse Fascism is trying to mainstream their protest with pictures of “regular folks” holding up their NYT ad:

In a preview of what may be coming this weekend on a larger scale, eight people were arrested while “protesting” conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos outside of his event at Cal State Fullerton last night. One of the “protesters” threw a water bottle at someone wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. A woman wearing a black helmet and mask and armed with a knife was arrested after she shot pepper spray into the air.

Before she was arrested, the woman “was heard urging protesters to break into the Yiannopoulos event and beat him up,” according to the L.A. Times.

Of course, the protest was described by the media as “mostly peaceful”:

Whatever happens on Saturday, some of the protests are likely to devolve into violence. Expect anarchists armed with knives, projectiles, and even guns to attack counter-protesters and police, causing property damage and setting fires. If you live in one of Refuse Fascism’s target cities, you would do well to avoid the area of their planned protest/riot.
