San Diego 2A Gun Owners Arming BLM/Antifa

Black Lives Matter (BLM) Radicals Recruited For San Diego County Gun Owners

In the video below the Executive Director of the San Diego County Gun Owner, Michael Schwartz, interviews Tasha Williamson and celebrates his outreach, which should result in training and arming radical leftist groups in San Diego, such as the radical fringe of the Black Lives Matter movement. The anarcho-communist movement, Antifa, was apparently also offered the same training and aid in obtaining guns.

Williamson says she was threatened, and she probably was, but that was because she has been perceived as the leader of the most radical branch of BLM in the County. The town of La Mesa in San Diego Country was looted, vehicles set on fire, and major buildings were burned to the ground during a riot that broke out at a Black Lives Matter Protest. They tried to set fire to the police station and they did set fire to the City Hall (annex), but it burned out. Not condoning it, but it was due to her own actions and public threats that she was, herself threatened.

Williamson says in the video that she was not part of BLM, but often appeared to be the major spokesperson for BLM in the County as in the flyer for a discussion of BLM.

Tasha Threatens To Burn National City

In 2018 Tasha Williamson threatened to burn National City. She said National City would look like Ferguson when they were done. When removed from the building, she warned that ten thousand more would come to the next council meeting.

The San Diego DA found that the police officers were not criminally responsible for Earl McNeil’s death. See this link: DA opts not to charge officers in the death of Earl McNeil

Tasha did not burn down National City as she threatened. However, was two years later La Mesa was burned down during a riot at a Black-Lives-Matter protest. It was a protest in which she was involved. The next day after La Mesa, BLM rioters also vandalized and looted Downtown San Diego and reportedly tried to set fire to the County Admin Building.

Threat: Violence and Arson Will Spread

In this video, Tasha Williamson indirectly threatens that violence will spread around the County if their demands are not met. The riot and arson attack in La Mesa started just a few hours later. She says that other people will do it, not her. Her tactic is to isolate herself from the violence, while helping to justify it and incite it.

Tasha Livestreams “Revolution Has Started”

Black Lives Matter organizer, Tasha Williamson, live-streams at 8:50 PM to her followers that the “revolution has started”. According to the police timeline, the reports of looting of the Vons stores started at 9:12 PM. A little more than two hours later, at 11.11 PM Chase bank was reported to be on fire and the other two buildings were torched only minutes thereafter. This live-stream by Tasha Williamson seems to have been a green-light to to tell her livestream viewers to come to La Mesa and participate in the “revolution”.

In the video Tasha Williamson is referring to the shooting of Leslie Furcron in the head with a bean bag at the riot in La Mesa. Furcron, a grandmother, was hoping to see the police station burned down. To see the video Furcron made herself of the incident see this video: Leslie Furcron Films Her Own Police Shooting at BLM Riot The rioters had already been ordered to disperse. It is a shame, she was hurt badly, but she should not have been there. She willingly put herself in serious danger.

Tasha Tours Burning Banks

Below, Tasha Williamson and her entourage show up in La Mesa to tour the burning of the banks. With perfect timing, they arrive just as the banks begin to burn. A couple hours earlier she livestreamed what can be perceived as a “call to action”. Then, she shows up just as the banks have been set ablaze. Did she have advanced knowledge?

The event had been declared an illegal assembly a few hours before. So, it is illegal for her to even be at this riot. The police were too undermanned and overwhelmed by rioters to do much about it.

BLM Radical Explains Why Banks Burned Down

Stephen Glenn McLeod is an associate of Tasha Williamson. At this Black-Lives-Matter protest in La Mesa on August 11, 2020, he explains that the two banks were burned down because they built their corporations on the backs of slaves. They also burned the historic Randall building to the ground. I a doubt very much that the banks had anything to do with slavery and even more so with the regard to the Randall building. The Randall building was then occupied by an architectural firm.

I was not a part of Defend East County (DEC), but a blogger covering the events. However, I was sympathetic to their mission of deterring burning and looting of towns in East County. I believe DEC and 2-3 other similar groups did very much help prevent more rioting and arson in La Mesa and avoid it entirely in Santee, where BLM leaders hoped to bring the same kind of destruction as they inflicted on La Mesa.

BLM calls anyone who dares oppose their chaos, looting and arson a “racist.” I told people not to threaten her, not just because I do not think it’s right, but because she used threats to gain sympathy and for fund raising.

Some of them wanted to turn La Mesa into a city controlled by leftist political extremists, like Portland became for a while. See this video: BLM Admits, San Diego is not Portland.

McLeod says they are nonviolent, but barely two weeks later he was arrested and charged with a federal felony for illuminating a police helicopter with a tactical laser. Below is a quote from the DoJ press release about the case. See press release here: San Diego Man Charged with Aiming a Laser Pointer at Police Helicopter During a Protest

“When aimed at an aircraft, a beam of light from a handheld laser can illuminate a cockpit, disorienting and temporarily blinding the pilots,” said Suzanne Turner, Special Agent in Charge of FBI San Diego. “It’s a federal felony that the FBI and our law enforcement partners take very seriously.”

Tasha Reaches Out To Her “Comrades”

Tasha reached out to other leftist extremists to let them know that the SDCGO was offering free training and help in arming themselves, courtesy of their donors.

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. Some of the participants in these threads are thought to be Antifa members, such as SDAgainstFash (San Diego Against Fascists), who displays and Antifa logo.

Oside4All – guns

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.

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.
