Police in Coeur d’Alene Idaho arrested 31 members of an extremist group who were allegedly en-route to protest at the city’s Pride in the Park event, after an informant tipped them off. The men were wearing nearly identical masks, hats, shirts and khakis, and were placed in zip ties and taken away from the scene, according to the Independent .

Of note, Patriot Front is known for showing up in various cities to stage “flash mob” style marches, with appearances in Nashville, Washington DC and Pittsburgh over the last two years. Last July In Philadelphia , they were forced to fight their way out back to Penske trucks they arrived in – during which they were briefly detained but then let go.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
