Leftists Already Lying About the Upcoming "Patriot Prayer" Rally in San Francisco. Here are the Facts.
Pro-conservative and libertarian group "Patriot Prayer" is planning a "Free Speech" rally in San Francisco, one of the most far-left cities in the nation. Naturally, leftist nut-jobs are falling over themselves to mislabel the group and its leader.
A headline earlier today appeared on the San Francisco Examiner declaring: "'White supremacist’ patriot rally coming to San Francisco — counter-protest already planned," insinuating that the same people responsible for the violence that took place in Charlottesville are planning the event.
From the article:
Besides the portion quoted above, the entire piece is rife with deliberate misinformation. Here are the facts:
The "Patriot Prayer" is not a white supremacist group.
This is perhaps the most blatant lie. The group's founder, Joey Gibson, has denounced hate groups repeatedly. In an interview just three months ago, he had this to say:
After leftist news organizations alleged that he had ties with racist criminal Jeremy Christian, Gibson was quick to denounce him and refute any connection with him.
According to the group's official facebook page, their mission "is about using the power of love and prayer to fight the corruption both in the government and citizen levels that seek to gain power through division and deception."
Conservatives were not responsible for the Charlottesville terror attack.
There were several groups taking part in the protests and counter-protests during the attack in Charlottesville. None were conservative.
The event pitted Antifa and Black Lives Matter (both criminal fascist organizations) against Neo-Nazis, the Alt-Right, White Nationalists/Supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan, all of which are hateful groups whose ideologies are utterly incompatible with conservative values.
As previously stated, the Patriot Prayer group endorses and supports none of these organizations or their ideologies.
In spite of the reality, it seems that leftists, including the all-Democrat San Francisco administration, are determined to label the group all the things they are not. Should they attempt to deny the group a permit like UC Berkeley did to Ben Shapiro, the city could very well face a First Amendment lawsuit of their own.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
