Antifa threatens to disrupt American Patriot rally in Dahlonega


DAHLONEGA, Ga – Hundreds of local, state and federal law enforcement officers are bracing for the possibility of a violent confrontation during the American Patriot Rally to support President Donald Trump on Saturday, Sept. 14.

Chester Doles, a man who reportedly has ties to several white supremacist organizations received the original permit for the event. He withdrew his request, but shortly thereafter, Dustin Penner received a permit for the event.

Chester Doles

Members of Atlanta Antifascists — a militant, left-wing group of black-clad anarchist thugs known for sparking violence at Trump rallies, is expected to hold a counter-demonstration. A post on the Atlanta Antifa Facebook page brands Doles as “a longtime neo-Nazi and fourth-generation Klansman” and, it says the rally “is an attempt by Doles to draw pro-Trump rightists closer to his own neo-Nazi politics.”

Members of their group say they are keeping a watchful eye on the event.

Some reports have indicated that Bikers for Trump Georgia would participate, but the organization’s Director Dale Herndon spoke with Fetch Your News today and issued the following statement: “There is no way, knowing what we know now about the history of the original event coordinator and knowing that he is still promoting this rally that we can attend as Bikers for Trump. The news media would have tried to tie it all back to the past. I could not put the bullseye on our President.”

Andy Ngo

Antifa’s reputation for violence is well documented. It was Antifa that attacked and severely beat conservative journalist Andy Ngo in July. Ngo was kicked, punched and spit on. He sustained brain damage as a result of a brutal attack.

That same month, a 69-year-old man who claimed to be a member of Antifa fire bombed Tacoma Northwest Detention Centre before being shot to death by police.

Lumpkin County Sheriff Stacy Jarrard said there would be a heavy law enforcement presence for the Trump rally. “I have nothing against either group. I’m hoping the event will be peaceful but we will enforce the law.”

    You make fascists sound like choir boys. They are nazis. Legit self proclaimed nazis who want to kill millions. But protesters of fascism you make them sound like they’re the fascists. This is a bunch lies and you’re a nazi

    • Bill Johnson September 4, 2019 at 2:43 pm

      Educate yourself LJ. These Antifa thugs you call “protesters of fascism” beat a journalist senseless because they didn’t like the things he wrote. They attacked an elderly man because he wore a MAGA cap. A self-proclaimed Antifa member firebombed a Homeland Security detention facility. These acts are the very definition of fascism.

        you can speak reason to these left wing nutcases

        • Linda Ray September 5, 2019 at 7:12 am

          Here we have an example of the typical tRump supporter – semi-literate, uneducated, and ill-informed. It’s interesting to note how they call people on the left violent and nut cases when over 70% of domestic terrorism in the United States is committed by right-wing extremists. You can’t use reason and logic with them because you aren’t the dumb f**k whisperer.

        • Bill Johnson September 5, 2019 at 10:50 am

          Tim, thank you for reading Fetch Your News. You are exactly right.

          • Linda Ray September 7, 2019 at 12:11 pm

            Do your own homework, son. I know you won’t because facts destroy the picture you want to paint.

        • David Wilson September 6, 2019 at 11:22 pm

          I would suggest that the left be very careful how they react to this rally. Free speech is a right held by every citizen regardless of what they believe and there will be families and children there. Should they attack or hurt anyone there unprovoked by anything but a belief, well they could find themselves in a very negative position.

    • Linda Ray September 5, 2019 at 7:08 am

      AntiFa literally means anti-fascist. Anyone who is against them is pro-fascist…people like Bill for example.

      • Bill Johnson September 5, 2019 at 8:06 am

        Thanks for reading Fetch Your News, Linda. Anyone who is gullible enough to believe Antifa is antifascist has an IQ on par with that bartending Congresswoman from New York.

        • Linda Ray September 9, 2019 at 8:16 am

          Thank you for demonstrating that your ignorance is exceeded only by egotism and arrogance, Bill.

    • Jason September 7, 2019 at 9:48 pm

      Somebody needs to stand between Antifa and the KKK holding a sign painted with left AND right arrows that says “Those numbnuts are the problem.”

  2. Bobbie September 3, 2019 at 5:08 pm

    How can you not have anything against either group when Antifa is known for violence. They need to stay away.

  3. Dominic Benecasa September 3, 2019 at 6:13 pm

    Atlanta ANTIFA claims neo-nazi and klansman? They need to look up history they operate like the Brown shirts of the third Reich and the KKK was the violence arm of the Democrat party. Are they really that stupid?

  4. Karen Smith September 4, 2019 at 10:04 am

    What a laughable article. You should put this in the opinion section, not news. “A militant, left-wing group of black-clad anarchist thugs known for sparking violence at Trump rallies”? Can you be any more partisan with your language? Where is your vitriol for the white supremacists? This is not a Patriot rally, it is a white supremacist rally. And clearly, you don’t know much about antifascists if you think they are worse than the KKK.

    • Bill Johnson September 4, 2019 at 2:34 pm

      Thanks for your comment, Karen. I oppose all hate group equally.So where is your vitriol for the militant, left-wing group of black-clad anarchists thugs who pretend to be against fascism, but who are, in fact, fascists themselves?

      • Linda Ray September 9, 2019 at 8:18 am

        Anyone who is against anti-fascists has the mental capacity of a sun-baked garden slug, Bill.

        • Bill Johnson September 11, 2019 at 6:21 am

          Thank you for reading Fetch Your News, Linda. I an not at all opposed to anti fascists. I’m opposed to Antifa, a
          misguided group of brainless anarchists, socialists and communists that is exactly what it professes to hate.

    • Linda Ray September 7, 2019 at 12:13 pm

      They try to hide their racism when in fact they are as transparent as a freshly cleaned window.

  5. Tommy L Maddox September 4, 2019 at 2:32 pm

    Well Karen:

    I haven’t seen many Klansmen rioting in the streets or attacking people and/or property in the news over the past couple of years – just Antifa.

    Perhaps the news outlets are biased as well.

  6. Jen Masters September 4, 2019 at 4:39 pm

    uh, didn’t Chester Doles go to jail for beating up a black man because he was part of an interracial couple? He also got convicted of burglary and beating up the people in the home he was stealing from. Like he’s not an ‘alleged’ Klansman, the dude has literally described himself as one. What, are you gonna argue with the guy when he says he’s a Klansman? ‘Naw, man, you don’t mean it’. The dude’s been in jail for it. It’s not the only time he’s been in jail. If you got a proud criminal racist organizing your rally, that says something. And that something is ‘ criminal racists come to my rally’.

  7. Michael September 4, 2019 at 8:23 pm

    I have not one second for either group both groups do not represent the United States and both groups are fascist’s
    Both groups should be recognized as domestic terrorist’s.

  8. Haakon Haakonssen September 6, 2019 at 9:09 am

    As a resident of this region of Georgia I’d like to point out that hate groups are not welcomed here. Sure, they have a right to hold a rally like anyone else, but their views DO NOT reflect the views of the majority of resident who call the northeast foothills home.Please don’t be ignorant and pretend that because these people are rallying for Trump that it in any way translates to him supporting their beliefs. On the obverse side of the coin, don’t pretend that Antifa is antifascist. They are exactly like the KKK, a hate group that has no place in America. Both groups use the same tactics of intimidation, violence, and thuggery. Dahlonega is no place for either of these groups. You can either support the president or protest against him, but don’t think for a hot second that you have any right to violate another citizen’s right to free speech or their basic human right to believe whatever they want to believe (right or wrong). Agree to disagree because the alternative is leading us down a very dark road.

  9. Alex September 6, 2019 at 9:38 pm

    If White people want to be proud of the accomplishments of their race, they should be able to do so without molestation in the Nations that THEIR ancestors founded.
    Blacks/Hispanics/Asians routinely express pride for themselves and THEIR people, but if Whites do it, it’s “Supremacist”???

    Until the other races – particularly the African race – puts a man on the Moon, plants an African flag, and brings back the American flag, then the white race truly IS “supreme.”

  10. Thomas September 10, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    Antifascists aren’t terrorists. Nazis are. This “patriot rally” is being promoted on stormfront, the biggest neo-nazi website in the country.

    Antifascists aren’t thugs. I’m a middle class white man in my 50’s, and I’m Antifa.

    The author obviously thinks Nazis are okay people.

    • Bill Johnson September 11, 2019 at 6:17 am

      When Antifa attacks and brutally beats a journalist because they don’t like what he/she wrote or when they attack an elderly couple because of their support for the president, they are thugs. But Antifa is more than that. They are anarchists, socialists and communists.
