The communists in the domestic terrorist group Antifa are no strangers to propaganda, so it should come as no surprise that supporters of the group and their violence would frame what happened last weekend in Portland in their typical ‘We’re martyrs’ fashion.
Following the arrest of Antifa member Alexander G. Dial, known in social media circles as “Beta Cuck 4 Life” because of a shirt he wore last Saturday, a GoFundMe page was set up to pay for his legal fees.
The 37-year-old Dial was charged with “attempted assault, unlawful use of a weapon and riot,” according KOIN in Portland, Oregon.
The GoFundMe has been set up with a goal to raise $15,000 for “legal fees or penalties associated with this case.” As of this writing, $9,780 has been raised towards the aforementioned goal.
According to the “story” on the GoFundMe page:
As many of you are aware, the man you see in the right side of the photograph in the red helmet is Alexander Dial (trending on Twitter as #betacuck4lyfe), a protestor who was defending Portland, Oregon along with a large group of local citizens against SPLC-designated hate groups who had invaded the downtown area without permits in order to spread their rhetoric of intolerance. Unfortunately, the Portland Police arrested Alexander during this demonstration and have chosen to criminally prosecute him. These are serious charges and he needs your help now! Alexander has no criminal record, a long history of activism, and he is in serious legal jeopardy as a result of the nature of this case's political charge. Take a stand with those who stand up for their communities and donate to his defense fund now. These hate groups are emboldened under the current American Administration and we need all the community defenders we can. We will not be intimidated. *** Any money donated that ends up being extraneous will be passed along as a donation to the American Civil Liberties Union in order to continue the fight to protect human and civil liberties. *** This campaign is created by Alexander Dial of Portland, Oregon, and the donations are intended to go toward legal fees and/or penalties associated with these proceedings only. Any money raised from this campaign will be withdrawn ONLY for his legal defense in this specific case. Transparency is very important to him. Any extra money donated that is not spent as described above will be donated to the ACLU without exception. None of the money raised is to be spent on anything not directly related to legal fees or penalties associated with this case.
That’s a nice bit of spin the person that set up the GoFundMe in Dial’s honor, who I won’t name here, but it’s not clear whether they’re oblivious or not to the fact that there’s multiple videos — with multiple angles — of Dial being aggressively violent last Saturday.
Here’s an example:
Seems like a standup guy. For those playing the home game, that was sarcasm.
