The long, forgotten history of pro-gun left-wing groups.
By Kim Kelly (July 2019)
Right-wingers have held an unearned monopoly on gun culture for too long. Whether it’s in the halls of legislative power or in the comments under “gun bunny” photos on Instagram, there is a prevailing narrative that pegs guns and armed self-defense exclusively to Republicans, racist libertarians, and other generally Constitution-obsessed weirdos. It maintains that those on the left want to take away everyone’s guns and swathe the entire country in bubble wrap. But I’m an anarchist, and I call bullshit.

Two Virginia police officers who worked for different agencies were fired at anti-fascist group this summer.
The first case involved Sgt. Robert A. Tribe of the Virginia Division of Capitol Police, who had been assigned to protests calling on Gov. Ralph Northam to resign over a yearbook photo that surfaced in February.
This article was written in February 2008. That sergeant tribe came to his attention because he had a large band-aid covering his neck while patrolling. The sergeant tribe with tattoos, flags and banners that has been used for supremacist symbols and images, said in a blog post.
It also said he was linked to the Asatru Folk Assembly , which is the Southern Poverty Law Center. In 2015, the FBI foiled a plot described as followers of extremist variant of the Asatru faith to attack black churches and synagogues in the Chesterfield area.
Sergeant Stamm was released on Wednesday, Col. Anthony S. Pike, the capitol police chief, announced in a statement that the sergeant tribe had been “separated from his employment.” He did not explain what had led to the firing.
In Facebook messages on Thursday night, Mr. Tribe said that he was discriminated against his Asatru religion.
“My religion is not politics, it is faith,” he wrote. “My constitutional rights were violated. Period. “
In the second case, Daniel Morley, a school resource officer, with the Chesterfield County Police Department, which is fired Thursday following an investigation into what is affiliated with the group Identity Evropa, also known as the American Identity Movement. Members of that group helped plan the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally at Charlottesville, Va., According to the Southern Poverty Law Center .
Antifa Seven Hills had identified Mr. Morley as a “pledge coordinator” for the group, which recruits on college campuses and elsewhere. Antifa said that Mr. Morley had been responsible for the vetting process and had been a member since 2017.
Mr. Morley was suspended in March. Col. Jeffrey S. Katz, the chief police officer, wrote on social media on Thursday that investigators had authenticated the online postings and activities.
Mr. Morley violate county and departmental policy and our organizational values; his continued employment is antithetical to the expectations of our personnel and those we serve, “he wrote.
The anti-fascist group so alleged that Mr. Tribe and Mr. Morley each and every one of them said, “What is it?
Efforts to Mr. Morley on Thursday night were unsuccessful.

On Monday January 4, 2019, officer Rob Stamm was observed policing at a rally on the Virginia capitol grounds in support of the residents of Union Hill — a historically Black community currently being targeted by Dominion Energy’s Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
The residents of Union Hill want the racist Virginia governor Ralph Northam to resign not only because of his use of black face 30 years ago, but because of his racist policies that are impacting them today.
Virginia Capitol Police were on site during these protests, as they have been all weekend, their presence threatening the use of force against anyone who stepped out of line.
As anti-fascists and anarchists, we oppose the police in the same way we oppose Ralph Northam and all governors, all pipelines and all corporations. We stand against every instance of domination, oppression and exploitation. And we know our history… The Virginia Capitol Police force is the U.S.’s oldest police force, founded in 1618 to enforce violent colonial genocide on behalf of white and European settlers against Indigenous people. In various iterations over the next several centuries, it would serve as the slave patrol, the “protectors of property,” enforcers of indentured servitude contracts against poor European settlers and freedmen. The institutions of power which they serve have not changed. VCP remain a force for colonialism, brutal racism and capitalism.
While we believe policing is, inherently, a white supremacist institution, when the cops are so bold as to make their allegiances open, we seize the opportunity. When they tout their allegiance to overtly fascist groups, we name them and expose their ties. Maybe, from reading this story, others will become more attuned to the racist dog-whistles and white supremacist symbolism that proliferate among white men obsessed with power and European identity. Maybe from this exposure, other overt white supremacists will be discouraged from joining law enforcement, where their violence is even more legitimized as state force. Maybe they will make their symbolism more obscure and keep their allegiances off social media. Regardless of the outcome, our position on the police will not change.
We do not want to provide nazi cops with paid vacation. But one less pig on the streets is one less murderer patrolling around flashing their badge and gun.
