Well, isn’t that strange? This dude flipped from one extreme to the other with no middle ground. Nothing fishy there.
It’s not like Saul Alinsky in his extremist activist tactics suggested that leftist pose as racists to support a political opponent to foment racial tensions and vilify conservatives.
Internet sleuths have dug up some interesting info on Jason Kessler, the man behind the ‘Unite The Right’ rally in Charlottesville, VA.
He’s an enigmatic figure.
He went a full 180 degrees on the political spectrum in a relatively short amount of time.
Here’s Alex Jones calling B.S. on Jason Kessler in a brief clip of an interview:
From the ultra-leftist Southern Poverty Law Center‘s profile on Jason Kessler:
Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.
At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city, Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.
A white nationalist that had previously supported Barry for President?
Well, that’s weird.
Don’t leftists say that racism was a deep-seated thing that needed to be rooted out? Especially that ‘unconsious’ racism?
Kessler didn’t make his extreme white supremacist views known until November 2016.
The report goes on to say that Kessler’s right-wing views only became public in November 2016, though he himself says his change from left-wing extremist to right-wing extremist began in 2013, when a PR executive made a racial joke about Aids on her way to Africa, and found when she landed that she had lost her job in the ensuing backlash.
So he switched from an extreme left-wing view to an extreme right-wing view just in time for the election of Donald Trump… or was it right after his election?
An archived copy of his now-deleted blog had this post:
The white supremacist group that Kessler founded, ‘Unity & Security for America’ was established in January 2017.
Some on the ‘mainstream’ media end of things are calling this a conspiracy theory. Check out the quotes used on Business Insider:
“Just did some digging and I found out that this little f–k was a leftist operative until when? You guessed it — November 2016,” wrote a commenter on the pro-Trump reddit group /r/The_Donald.
“‘Unite the Right’ is a Soros-funded honeypot psyop that employs the ‘Pied Piper’ strategy to damage the Republican brand by insinuating that Antifa goons disguised as Nazis represent the views of the entire Right Wing in America,” wrote another commenter.
“I said from day one this was a media created false flag,” another replied. “I hope there is a real investigation into this s–t so we can see the true criminals exposed.”
And then the dismissal.
Conspiracy theories involving Soros are prolific among far-right activists, who have accused the 87-year-old of playing a role in everything from the Charlottesville violence to the European refugee crisis.
Just like of Hillary’s emails.
Kessler was chased away from his own press conference: (LANGUAGE WARNING)

He was questioned about the death of Heather Heyer and was told that her blood is on his hands:

The evidence is looking like this dude may have been using Alinsky tactics.
It’s unclear if that is the case — he says he became a conservative in 2013.
What do you think?
Is he telling the truth on suddenly becoming a white supremacist?
Or is he using ‘false flag’ tactics to paint conservatives as racist fascists?
Let us know what you think in the comments.
