    Hundreds of antivaxxers, Proud Boys, Capitol rioters and other neo-fascists rallied in Los Angeles Saturday, attacking journalists and counterprotesters while LAPD looked on. Police failed to intervene to curb the right-wing violence despite the fact the event took place directly in front of their downtown headquarters.

    On May 6th, 2021 Florida governor Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill (SB 90) designed to discourage mail-in voting and to render the administration of vote-by-mail much costlier for individual localities. The signing ceremony for the bill took place at the Majestic Ballroom at the West Palm Beach Airport Hilton, with Fox News, the Trump booster group Club 45, and anti-Muslim political candidate Laura Loomer the only permitted observers.

    A week earlier on April 27th, Loomer co-organized a press conference held clandestinely at the Majestic Ballroom with white nationalist Nick Fuentes. The press conference was about far-right influencers’ and activists’ grievances about being banned from mainstream social media and payment processors. Aggrieved activists in attendance included the embattled Proud Boy chairman and prolific FBI informant Enrique Tarrio, who attended the conference as an honored guest. Tarrio and Loomer then joined other key-note speakers like Newsmax host Michelle Malkin and failed Delaware Senate candidate (and Q-Anon enthusiast) Lauren Witzke in front of a Publix Supermarket in West Palm Beach Gardens.

    Patrick Casey sat in his suit against a green screen backdrop of a generic stock image cityscape. His viewers commented things like “pee pee poo poo” and “anyone else have no audio?” Casey’s drowsy-looking, almost-unblinking face rarely changed expressions as he spoke.

    “I’m 100% certain Nick is under FBI investigation,” Casey said.

    White nationalist media propagandist Vincent James of Red Elephants took notice of Oakland, CA after recent reports of attacks on Asian residents in Chinatown. James, an associate neo-Nazi fight club the Rise Above Movement and holocaust denier Nick Fuentes’s America First movement, has spent the last two weeks working to create division among Asian and Black communities.

    There are plenty of reasons to visit San Diego: surf, sand, and the set of groundbreaking teen film-noir classic Veronica Mars. But it turns out the systemic bias and corruption in policing outlined in the series is not as far from the truth as one would hope, and perhaps that is what pulled about 100 neo-nazis, Groypers, fascists and putschists to San Diego last Saturday. Indeed at least one person who stormed the capitol on Wednesday was welcomed with literal open arms by SDPD just three days later.
