Occupy Oakland Clashes with Pro-White Group

USA Today, February 28, 2012

At least two law enforcement officers were injured Monday during a clash with members of the Occupy movement who were at the state Capitol to counter a rally by a group protesting violence by blacks against whites in South Africa.

The clash erupted in the afternoon as California Highway Patrol and Sacramento police officers were escorting about 35 members of the South Africa Project to a parking garage after their protest outside the Capitol building.

About 50 members of Occupy Oakland began throwing cans and bottles at the South Africa group and at the officers. The Occupy members then clashed with the officers as people with the pro-whites group hurried into the parking garage.

The CHP arrested three members of the Occupy group on suspicion of disobeying an officer.

The violence abated after a large contingent of law enforcement arrived at the scene, about a block from the Capitol.

The clash followed a tense afternoon during which peace officers kept the two groups separated outside the Capitol.

Members of the South Africa Project were trying to draw attention to what they said is black-on-white violence in that country. Organizers said similar demonstrations were planned in other states and elsewhere in California.

The group was mostly male and white, some with shaved heads and prominent tattoos.

Many of the Occupy protesters, some wearing hoods or masks, said they came from the San Francisco Bay area to counter what they called a racist group affiliated with former Louisiana Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.

Morris Gulett, a spokesman for the South Africa Project, called the clash in Sacramento unfortunate.

“It’s not surprising that the counter-protesters got in the way of the peaceful march we wanted it to be,” Gulett said. “Our intention was to conduct a peaceful march.”


Ryan Stark, 26, who said he is part of Occupy Sacramento, said he joined the protesters challenging the South Africa Project protesters because there needed to be a showdown.

“I didn’t throw anything … but these sorts of demonstrations need to happen,” he said, referring to the counter protest. “They do have the right to say what they want, but we’re not going to let it fly.”

    “Members of the South Africa Project were trying to draw attention to what they said is black-on-white violence in that country. ”

    “What they SAID is black-on-white violence?”

    I am planning a demonstration tomorrow to draw attention to what I SAY is the sun rising in the east.

    The fact that what I, and the South Africa project are highlighting is demonstrably the case is no reason that anyone should listen to us.

    BTW I’d like to see Occupy Sacramento’s Ryan Stark receive some kind of Amy Biehl award. In person.

      Sorry, I didn’t read your comment first.  The same thing occured to me.  The slightist research on the journalist’s part could have shown that the South Africa Project’s claims are correct.  The media is not only anti-White, it is ignorant.

  • Hirschibold

    People in America have been so propagandized by Bob Geldoff’s “Live Aid,” Bono from U2 (along with Sean Penn and Angelina Jolie) and countless hageographies of Nelson Mandela, that when you tell them white people are being tortured in SA, it sounds like you’re saying that burgers eat people.

    • Sonya610

      The people that get brainwashed by that have never lived around real black populations.

  • Hirschibold

     Hard to imagine: “The group was mostly black, with mouths filled with gold teeth, and unruly dredlocks.

  • So the OWS crowd is okay with ethnic cleansing as long as the one’s being cleansed are whites?

    • Oil Can Harry

      Correct, the Occutards are anti-white. In their original protest in Zuccotti Park they decreed that white men would only be allowed to speak at the mic after women and nonwhites had their say.

  • DelmarJackson

    Last I read the number is over 3000 white farmers and their families  butchered on their land. Maybe we will hear more when South Africa can’t feed itself like what happened after Rhodesia became zimbabwe and we are forced to fork over millions in aid and bring in millions of “refugees”
     I  was also struck by the disconnect between the photo of the protesters and the describtion by the “journalist”

  • bluffcreek1967

    The OWS people (mostly young white liberals) are the useful idiots of the Left. They hate America, they hate Capitalism, they hate anything that’s normal, traditional or morally decent. They are ashamed of being White and all its implications. Every last one of them has been indoctrinated to thinks these kinds of thing in our public schools. This is what so many of us have allowed liberalism to do to our children – and as a result, this is what we get!

    • IstvanIN

      You are correct. 50 years of brain washing. Imagine going from Andrew Jackson who thought this continent belonged to the (white) American nation, no ifs ands or buts, to the groveling, sniveling cowards we are today. We apologize to everyone and everything. A once proud people now act like battered wives.

        Just make sure you demonstrate in a city that allows conceal carry permits.

        Liberals never have those.

  • shmo123

    Of course no black males have shaved heads or tattoos, right?

  • bluffcreek1967

    Good point! This shows how clearly the Media’s bias when it comes to Whites – especially Whites who stand up for themselves. The USA Today article’s physical description of the protestors of the South Africa Project is particularly interesting because it provided information as to their gender, race and distinctive features or appearance (e.g., ‘shaved heads and prominent tattoos’). More than likely, the writer’s implication is that these folks were just a bunch of skinheads. Regardless of the motivation, why are such details mysteriously absent from newspaper articles when crimes involving Blacks are reported? Or when Blacks commit crimes against Whites? Or crimes involving Black flash-mobs? Usually, nothing is mentioned about the criminal’s race – which is usually a clue that it was a Black person. The media does this because they are fearful of being labeled ‘racist,’ and they know Whites are not going to object and protest – at least not in the way that Blacks will whenever they perceive some disparity against them. I would  have more respect of the media if the reporting was fair on both sides, but it is not and never will be while the Left controls so much of it.

    Ironically, David Duke has semi-endorsed the Occutard movement.

  • redfeathers

    The weasel Stark says they have the right to protest, but he and his group are not going to let it fly.  These tyrants won’t stop till the hate crimes laws are wildly expanded and we’re all silenced. 

  • Alexandra1973

    No kidding.  DWLs (Disingenuous White Liberals) screech about stereotyping blacks, but this is okay, it seems.

  • ViktorNN

    As has already been pointed out – what an obnoxious, anything-but-objective article.

    Also, well done to the South Africa Project. Takes bravery do to what you did, and I think it’s worth it. This seems like a winning issue for pro-white folk.

  • Xanthippe2

    “Members of the South Africa Project were trying to draw attention to what they said is black-on-white violence in that country”  –> “They said” ???

    Like the Black on White violence in South Africa is just delusional thinking by this small group!  Even the very mainstream group Genocide Watch lists South Africa as a problem country — with Whites being the targeted group.

    Kudos to these 35 brave men and women who are doing what they can to raise awareness of the horrible murders, rapes, and maimings that our people are suffering in South Africa!

    • Natassia

      Good catch.
      My God, is this supposed to be journalism?

  • Commenter


  • An irony (or hypocrisy) is last week’s news reports that Nelson Mandela was hospitalized with a tummy ache. Nothing was mentioned of the genocide that has killed thousands of Whites since Mandela took office. The MSM, again, abrogated its responsibility to report the news. 

    Also note that there have been over 3,165 documented accounts of innocent White farmers killed since Mandela took office in 1994 (17 years).

    Compare that to 3,446 black criminals lynched in the USA between 1882 and 1968 (86 years).

    Where is the outrage?

  • Does anyone agree with me that the presence of swastika-tattooed  skinheads at such rallies damages the cause? Discourage hundreds (or thousands) from participating? Could they be paid gov’t plants to discredit the movement?

    • Natassia

      Lots of people have shaved heads. What determines if a person is just a man with a shaved head or a “skinhead.”

      And if there are no photos of the swastika tattooes, it didn’t happen.

  • Natassia

    David Duke loves to hate Jews.

    The biggest killers of blacks anywhere are other blacks.

  • jackellis

    I would like to do activism on this issue. Can the moderators help me a bit on this?

    I am trying to sign up for a free trial to contact Congressional staff members (the paid service is pretty expensive) and express public opposition to the genocide against Boer farmers. I need a organization to list in my application. I would like to submit:

    The American Renaissance Society 
    Give the AMRen address

    I would list the mission as something like “promoting Renaissance culture” (true).

    I’ve used this free trial service a couple of times before and it’s a great contact list – you can write, speak directly with lower level staff members who’s job it is to correspond with voters.



  • Prima_Morte

    Note that all of those arrested were OCCUTARDS, not South Africa Project members.

    If so-called “skinheads” were actually present, their pictures would have been prominently displayed.

    As far as the OCCUTARDS’ display of unquenchable anger goes, it’s because they’re acting out against the one group of people they’ve been given permission to hate. They don’t have the physical courage to act this way around New Black Panthers who are trying to stop White people from voting, for example.

  • Prima_Morte

    P. S. Almost half of the comments aren’t showing up on my mobile device. Anyone else having this problem?

  • RobRoySimmons

    The BUGs crew is all over the youtube videos with the Mantra and the anti-Whites have no answers.  Kudos to the protestors who were on a consistent message of being against white genocide and not side issues.

  • Clight12

     “I know some people here are going to hate me for saying this, but it does
    make us look bad when we point out racism against whites to have nazi
    and KKK types out there.”


    That is BECAUSE our country has been saturated with so many falsehoods about the KKK and the need for such an organization for DECADES now. Do you believe what our lying media and “history” tell us about such things? Do you believe that the KKK was  infiltrated in the past/present by our own enemies/plants, just as most White racialists/sites are today and falsehoods/stories being told concerning us?

    Ask yourself some questions. 

    Is America now better off or worse off?

     Are White Americans better off now? 

    Are our White children safer now or in more danger, than ever before in our history? 

    Do Whites even have a country any longer? 

    Is this the America our Founders envisioned ?

    Do Whites really have freedom of speech and/or association?

    Has desegregation made our neighborhoods, schools and cities more civil and safer or less so?

    Have our wars made us better off as a race, or worse off?

    Did the Civil Rights movement help or hurt Whites?  How about AA?

    I could go on and on, but it would take all day. If you answer No to all of the above, then maybe you will quit thinking and writing what THEY have programmed you to do.

  • Anon

     Aren’t the Republicans and the Tea Party “civilized”, dress nice, throw out any “nazi” types, speak well, etc. etc. etc…

    Now tell me, just what has that gotten them or us as a White people?  Most are cowards and race traitors and we have lost our nation thanks to them, so I think I will distance myself from THEM!

    BTW, I do believe the White race/civilization is supreme over all others, don’t you?  What should we call that?

  • Robert2534

    It boggles the mind that any human being is able to endorse genocide of any kind, anywhere.  Genocide against any race – white, black, Jew, Arab – is oppositional to any moral standard. 
    The Occupy Oakland players may perceive their actions as moral and, therefore, good, but the inconsistency of their morality speaks to the diminutive position ‘white’ assumes in their sadly indoctrinated psyches. 
    The cultural underpinnings of this madness are too broad to examine here yet it can be understood that the rationalizations used to validate the madness of genocide generally flow from very disturbed minds. The players in the Occupy Oakland group obviously suffer some form of moral degradation. That the members of that group are able to reduce white genocide to nothing more than putting pesticide on a nuisance ant colony speaks to the absence of their moral underpinnings.  Yet, this is anticipated behavior and it is here the issue of moral sanity truly resides. Moral consistency is the substance that was intended to define civilization. When the Founders wrote the constitution they understood they were placing sound moral judgement in the hands of the populace. They also warned that inconsistent moral standards would produce horrific circumstances. Even as the issue of slavery served to divide the union, men endowed with dedication to moral consistency fought and died for ending slavery – “We cannot be half free and half slave”. That bloody war might have served to teach future generations that moral inconsistencies are at the core of many evils. That Occupy Oakland players are able to rationalize and therefore validate white genocide presents a frightening picture of this nation’s future. It appears we have come to another moral juncture wherein we will be forced to decide between diseased moral inconsistencies or the perpetuation of civilization itself. Given the racial conditioning that has skewed this nation’s vision of moral consistency, there really is no need to ponder the hate-filled behavior of the players of the Occupy Oakland group. By any standard they must be feared for the diseased future they promote. 

  • Zorro

    True. The Occupy Marxists are competing with the genuine Tea Party Movement of Middle Class Taxpaying White America.

  • The Occupy Wall Street movement also protests vehemently against the Westboro Baptist Church’s anti-sodomy rallies.  They are making a mistake IMO by taking the focus off of economics.  Sodomy and racial issues are far afield and by getting into them they are demonstrating that OWS is just a ho-hum 20th century group of Maoist agitators.  

  • Jupiter7

    For those of you who don’t know, Occupy Wall Street was hatched in the heads of the very liberal,bored and privledged children of the mega-rich White Liberal Greedy Cheating Class at the Wharf on the dock in Sag Harbor  Long Island a  year ago exactly. So it shouldn’t be shocking that they are  calling for the wiping away of the US border with Mexico. Although I most definitey agree with some of the demands of OWS protesters,in the end, OWS is the militant kiddie brigade of the Obama 2012 campaign. Obama, because he is owned by Wall Street, will implement none of OWS demands…except wiping away the US border with  Mexico…OWS is the 2012 version of Tom Hayden,SDS and the Port Huron statement …the  baby boom geneline of corporate executives who had a temper tantrum in the playpen….after which-50 years later..they made a career out of calling for the  race-replacement of the Native Born White American Majority.  OWS will be ecstatic when the corporate whore Dear Leader from Kenya is re-installed as Dear Leader of “America” for four more years.

  • Who in their white mind?

    What I don’t get is the end game by black criminal felonious low IQ having frontal lobe missing people in this case. They probably don’t know where S.Africa is on a map yet they are fighting against a group that is fighting for their own human right of survival on the “dark” continent. The analogy escapes me. Is it still allowed to be pot calling the kettle black, or is it an Afro-American kettle?

    It was okay for uninformed liberals of Caucasian persuasion to help blacks out in America during segregation and S. Africa during apartheid. But let some Pro – White groups voice it’s concern over what is a genocide against its own people and some welfare case drug addled low brow convicts can scream over your concerns. Nice world isn’t it?

  • Oil Can Harry

    The NYPD is becoming less and less white.

    The most recent graduating class looked like a gangsta rap concert.

  • Zorro

    I just read a posted article here about Leftists being attacked by Turkish Street Gangs in Berlin, Germany. The article said that he Leftist idiots didn’t know how to respond to the attacks by those they agitate for.

    Since it wasn’t a Neo- Nazi group, or a Police round-up, they had nothing in their Playbook on what to do; except stay there and get their skulls cracked.

  • Alexandra1973

    While I’m sure I’d agree with a lot of what Mr. Duke has to say, I am just so sick of the “Jews run the show” people.  Yeah, there are Jews involved…but they’re not at the top of the pyramid.

  • Zorro

    I want to know why 1,000 White people didn’t show up to support  the South Africa Project?

  • Zorro

    The greatest polluters on the globe were Communist States, and the former Soviet Union, as well as China, led the way, but no one heard a peep out of the Socialist UN over that.

  • The most important part of this whole thing is this:

    Ryan Stark, 26, who said he is part of Occupy Sacramento, said he joined the protesters challenging the South Africa Project protesters because there needed to be a showdown. 

    And this:

    “They do have the right to say what they want, but we’re not going to let it fly.”

    White People are being beaten and slaughtered but that is not what this “protester” cares about.  No, the mere mention of what non-whites are doing to White People is what is cause for a “showdown”.  This has extreme significance for me.  White People standing around with Poster Pictures and Posters is “cause” for a “showdown”.  I can’t get over it.

    And can you believe it, there are still White People who side with these blatant, in your face, enemies.  This person said “there needed to be a showdown”.  Not a showdown over lies, not over lies or derogatory name calling, no, there needed to be a “showdown” over Truth.
