This comes as many are concerned that violence could break out again, due to the controversy over the presidential election and transition. SDCGO is a political PAC and are not required to help those who do not support their mission. Some ask why they do this? Probably they do it, because they profit from it. Ask Michael Schwartz directly why they do it.
It is suggested that members request that they stop training Antifa and BLM members, which organizations are fundamentally opposed to their mission. Members should withhold their dues, until SDCGO leadership stops this. Contact the SDCGO PAC to complain at this contact link
Tasha Williamson is the lead organizer and spokesperson for Black Lives Matter in La Mesa and in San Diego. On April 30th, 2020, Black Lives Matter rioted in La Mesa. They vandalized and attacked the police station with rocks and bottles. BLM and Antifa burned two major banks buildings and the historic Randall Lamb building in Downtown La Mesa. They looted numerous stores and burned vehicles. They intended to burn down the police station and City Hall, as had happened with a police station the previous night in Minneapolis. They did start a fire in the City Hall, next to the police station, but it petered out. The DA announced recently that at least 20 “protesters” have been charged with felonies.
Two years earlier, Williamson was arrested at a Council meeting in National City when she threatened in July, 2018, to burn down that city, because the Council was not acting on her demands to fire the police chief.
On the night of the rioting and arson attacks in La Mesa, Tasha Williamson green-lighted the violence by live-streaming that the “revolution has started”. She took a triumphal tour with her entourage of the banks, just as they were being engulfed in flames and burned down completely.
The Facebook user “Oside4All” includes a screenshot from Tasha Williamson’s Instagram account, lauding the gun advocacy group for helping her and others arm and train themselves for purposes of “self defense”. Tasha uses the handle “queenta4” on Instagram.
This next image is a screenshot of Tasha’s Facebook page that OSide4All tweeted. It is stated here that the SDCGO group helped Tasha and others in arming themselves. Note that they talk of “comrades” being able to obtain guns, CCW’s, gun safes, and training from SDCGO, as well as note the other revolutionary jargon that they use.
Antifa and Black Lives Matter have an revolutionary, anarcho-communist ideology, similar to terrorists groups of the 1960’s and 1970’s such as the Weathermen, the Black Liberation Army, the Black Panthers and, in Europe, the Red Army Faction, aka the Badder-Meinhof Gang. These groups justified using violence on a large scale to terrorize and thereby bring about radical political change, as does antifa and and the more radical elements of Black Lives Matter.
In the 1970’s, RAF terrorists had to go to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in Jordan to obtain guns and training. In San Diego, it is much more convenient. Terrorist groups can just obtain arms, training and other assistance locally via the reputedly patriotic San Diego County Gun Owners organization!
Should a supposedly conservative, constitutional group, which claims to be a patriot group, be training members of such violence-prone and anti-American organizations? These groups are against the constitution, support gun-control and certainly would disarm average American citizens, if they were to obtain the power they crave.
Tasha and her gang will justify arming themselves, due to real or perceived threats. Not to justify threats for anyone, but any such threats were provoked by the violence, rioting and arson attacks of BLM and Antifa, themselves. The “Michael” that they mention, helping them to arm and train has been identified as the executive director of the SDCGO, Michael Schwartz.
Finally, this a the image also from the screenshot of Tasha’s Instagram page that shows the invitation from the SDCGO to the general public, which some in BLM and Antifa are exploiting for their own purposes.
