    Guns banned from Saturday’s ‘Patriot Prayer’ in San Francisco

    UPDATE: Guns banned from Saturday’s ‘Patriot Prayer’ in San Francisco

    By Shoshana Walter and Lance Williams / August 23, 2017

    iUPDATE: Permit issued but guns are banned.

    The organizer of Saturday’s rally in San Francisco, Joey Gibson, has pledged to keep the peace with the help of the right-wing Oath Keepers, an armed militia group. But they will run into trouble if they want to bring their guns.

    This morning, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area issued a permit to the planned “Patriot Prayer” at Crissy Field, with a key restriction: “participants are prohibited from bringing firearms or anything that could be used as a weapon.” The list that follows ranges from guns to large backpacks, helmets to selfie sticks.

    “We cannot deny a permit to anyone planning to exercise their First Amendment rights based on their political stance or beliefs,” said a statement from the recreation area’s Acting General Superintendent Cicely Muldoon. “We urge those planning to attend these events to share their views in a peaceful manner, to look out for each other, and to support law enforcement personnel to keep everyone safe.”

    The decision followed intense work by San Francisco officials, including an effort from Supervisor Mark Farrell, who announced today that he will propose legislation to ban all guns on state and federal lands in the city. Unfortunately for Farrell, the Board of Supervisors is currently on recess; he will not be able to officially make his move until Sept. 5, long after the event is over. But it’s part of a broader campaign to send a message.

    “We’re hoping it’s a deterrent for anyone who’s thinking about bringing a weapon concealed or otherwise,” said Jess Montejano, Farrell’s legislative aide.

    Long rifles are allowed to be carried openly in 43 states – including Virginia – but open carry of any gun is illegal in San Francisco and on the 130 acres of federal park land at Crissy Field, where the event is scheduled. The city already had called on National Park Service police to arrest anyone who shows up with a gun in plain sight.

    But federal law allows park visitors to carry concealed firearms if permitted under state law. State law in California allows them wherever the locals agree.

    That’s where things got a bit circular: While San Francisco rarely issues concealed carry permits, the “locals” at Crissy Field technically are federal officials because the former U.S. Army airfield is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

    Mayor Ed Lee had implored the federal government to ban all weapons from the park as a condition of issuing a permit for the event. The ban, he had advocated, should include “anything that could be used as a weapon; those are some conditions that we’re expecting to put on the permit,” said Ellen Canale, a spokeswoman for the mayor.

    Firearms are not the only weapons of choice at rallies and protests these days. From Charlottesville, Virginia, to Berkeley, California, police have confiscated everything from homemade slingshots and shields to machetes.

    Rory Little, a law professor at UC Hastings – just steps from City Hall – said Lee’s proposed weapons restriction would be allowed under the First Amendment.

    “It is a condition on conduct, not speech,” Little said. “I believe that a permit can be issued with conditions to ensure safety and security.”

    Gibson, the event’s organizer, is an unemployed real estate salesman from Vancouver, Washington, who has held Patriot Prayer rallies in Portland, Oregon, and Seattle. He says the Oath Keepers will be in charge of security at the event, but he had been equivocal about whether the right-wing militia will come armed.

    “It depends on the laws,” he told the San Francisco Examiner. “All of them have concealed carry (permits) in California. We’ll see, it depends on the permit.”

    On other fronts, the city and the federal park police are already working hand in hand.

    If thousands of people flood the Bay Area this weekend for protests and counterprotests planned both weekend days, the local ranks of the federal park police will rely heavily on the San Francisco Police Department for security at Crissy Field.

    Officials from the two agencies are meeting daily to discuss safety plans, Canale said, including ways of controlling the many exits and entrances to the park.

    CBS SFBayArea reported that the entire city police department will be deployed for the rally. San Francisco police declined to comment on specifics of the planned response, but authorities are contacting other departments and borrowing heavily from previous strategies.

    This morning, the federal park service said it would restrict access to some areas of Crissy Field.

    “To ensure public safety, portions of the Presidio and many businesses within the park will be closed to the public on August 26,” according to the statement.

    Gibson suggests it will all be unnecessary, because the rally will be dedicated to “freedom, love, peace and truth.” He says that if he has anything to do with it, the event will not devolve into another clash between leftist and right-wing street fighters.

    “No extremists will be allowed in,” he wrote on the event’s Facebook page. “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.”

    The event, he says, has specifically banned two high-profile white nationalist leaders present in Charlottesville: Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute and Nathan Damigo, founder of Identity Evropa, a “North American identitarian” group. Damigo, a Marine Corps veteran from the Silicon Valley, was arrested for punching a woman in the face at the “Battle of Berkeley” protest on April 15.

    “We will not allow the extremists to tear apart this country,” Gibson wrote.

    But other controversial figures are among the invited speakers at the San Francisco rally, including Kyle Chapman, also known as “Based Stickman.” A self-described “American Nationalist,” Chapman faces a felony weapons charge for swinging a stick packed with lead in the fighting with leftist counterprotesters on March 4 in Berkeley.

    One thing might keep Chapman away: He is set to be arraigned in Alameda County Court on Friday.

    The Patriot Prayer rally is the first of two right-wing events set for the Bay Area this weekend. On Sunday, a “No to Marxism in America” protest is scheduled for Berkeley’s Civic Center Park. It was organized by Amber Cummings, sometimes known as “Based Tranny,” who has appeared at earlier Berkeley protests carrying a pink “trans women for Trump” sign.

    Counterprotesters recruiting reinforcements range from the anti-fascist forces known as the “antifa” to the passive, like those advocating on social media that people not clean up after their dogs on Friday night or fill all Crissy Field parking so anyone with a concealed gun has to cross city land to get from their car to the event.

    The rally was cancelled and there will be a press conference in it's place. The media branded the rally as - ALt-Right!!! and Nancy Pelosi spun up the violence when, according to the Japanese event organizer, it was a group of moderate Democrats and Republicans.

    Pro-Trump Rally Cancelled Due To Violent Threats

    7:08 PM 08/25/2017

    A rally for President Donald Trump supporters scheduled Saturday in San Fransisco has been called off by the organizers due to many violent threats.

    The group announced Friday afternoon in a Facebook live video that they would no longer be hosting the event due to safety concerns after speaking with the San Fransisco police saying the rally will be dangerous and that many lives will be in danger.

    “After several conversations with the police and understanding the situation of what’s going on, we’ve decided that tomorrow really seems like a setup,” Joey Gibson, organizer of the protest said. “It doesn’t seem safe, a lot of people’s lives are going to be in danger tomorrow.”

    Gibson blamed politicians such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as well as San Fransisco’s Mayor Ed Lee for portraying the event as a white supremacist event.
    “We decided to go ahead and take the opportunity to not fall into that trap,” Gibson said. “We’re not going to have a rally at Crissy Field.”

    Many of members with the Portland-based Patriot Prayer are expected to hold a news conference Saturday at 2 p.m. in San Francisco’s Alamo Park to further discuss their reasons for canceling their rally.

    Evergreen State College Protesters attack Joey Gibson
    Once again the majority of the students at Evergreen State College are over shadowed by the extremists. 95% of Evergreen Students are good peaceful people, and we met several of them. But the extremists at the school are the loudest and try to intimidate with hate and violence.
