A U.S. Marine Corps lance corporal who marched with white supremacists and bragged about violence he committed during last year’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, has been thrown out of the service, after serving a month behind bars.

Vasillios Pistolis served 28 days of confinement at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina after being convicted at a court-martial for disobeying orders and making false statements, in connection with his role in the deadly Charlottesville rally, in August 2017.

A report by ProPublica and Frontline PBS highlighted his involvement with the Atomwaffen Division and Traditionalist Worker Party — two of the most militant groups in the neo-Fascist movement.

According to the report, Pistolis had bragged about his involvement in the Charlottesville violence.

“Today cracked three skulls open with virtually no damage to myself,” he wrote on Aug. 12 — the day of the violent rally and counterprotest, in which Heather Heyer was killed.

Photographs taken at the rally depict Pistolis clubbing a counter-protester with a wooden flagpole.

Good for the Marine Corps!

I hope that the employers of other participants in those riots will follow suit.

    OT? ~IT’s the law…Not NOW>

    “While VAWA was reauthorized in 2000, 2005 and 2013 with bipartisan support, the current House bill does not have a single Republican co-sponsor to date. As time runs low, advocates are growing increasingly anxious.

    “There’s a lot of worry in the field about the expiration,” said Kim Gandy, the president of the National Network to End Domestic Violence.

    VAWA, which was authored by then-Sen. Joe Biden and signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1994, was the first piece of federal legislation to address domestic violence as a serious crime. ” Where’s Lisa?

    “Detained immigrants would be kept near or on toxic waste sites slated for government cleanup.” ““These waste sites have the potential to cause dangerous human exposure to toxic chemicals via air, water and soil to migrants housed in tent encampments and to workers constructing the detention camps,” the FOIA request reads.”
    “remediated sites, which are also a source of concern. Evans said it is not uncommon for sites that have been cleaned to require additional attention following remediation, after they are found to still pose a health and environmental hazard.

    She pointed to an infamous 2005 housing development constructed at Fort Wainwright in Alaska, which has historically been Superfund-listed. Construction ultimately paused after workers reported strange odors and residue; cleanup of residual contaminants ultimately cost the military upwards of $15 million.

    Immigrants housed at Goodfellow will seemingly be situated directly above a remediated area. Their accommodations are likely to mirror the same large tents previously used by the government to house detained immigrants, which offer minimal protection from outside elements.

    At both Fort Bliss and Goodfellow, detained people — including very young children — could be in perilous proximity to toxins, posing an extreme health hazard.” ” immigrants on Superfund sites could suffer from anything from asthma, to neurological damage, to organ damage, to cancer,” she explained. “It really depends on the chemical and extent of exposure.”
    ““It’s important that this be a public process,” “These plans should not be developed in secrecy. “

    “Trump won. The man who was never supposed to be anywhere near power was sitting, eating, tweeting in the White House. Trump, the man backed by so many on the far-right, was president of the United States.” CIVIL WAR All the president’s men.
    ” America’s “education system has been overrun by liberal professors, by… openly communist and openly Marxist professors.”

    America’s militias, with Trump from the beginning, didn’t know what to do. “For the first time in its 25-year history, the militia movement had a presidential candidate that they love,” Mark Pitcavage, a senior researcher with the Anti-Defamation League, told ThinkProgress. “This had never happened before.””there were concerns about how militias, and the far-right more broadly, would react to Trump’s assumed loss in 2016. “This was something we were really concerned about, and we wrote about it in advance of the election, and we were really concerned that when the election was over and [Hillary Clinton] was the next president — as all the polls said she would be — that we were going to have real a problem on our hands,”
    “stoking — the violent froth of white supremacists and neo-fascists on the far-right.” “One of the questions is, in these unprecedented political times, full of tumult and confusion, you have to ask, ‘Are the militias primed for violence?’”
    “America’s militias had a narrative to which they could cling. Their message centered on globalist cabals and secretive organizations stealing America’s sovereignty, replacing red-blooded Americans with neutered, disarmed subjects. It was an accessible narrative, one that gained remarkable credence over the past few years if numbers are to be believed.” “a narrative that played a role in events like the Oklahoma City bombing, or the Masher occupation” “As Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) said, “You saw the militia walking down the street. You would have thought they were an army.” ““The Charlottesville backlash has caused them to back down from a lot of the events that they were showing up to, especially white supremacist events,” Pitcavage said.”

    “Robert McCulloch, 67, who has been the St. Louis county prosecutor for almost three decades, failed to indict the officer who killed Brown in 2014, an incident that sparked widespread protests and galvanized a national conversation about police brutality against people of color. His opponent in the primary, Wesley Bell, is a 43-year-old Ferguson city councilman and former public defender, prosecutor, and judge who helped push police accountability and court reforms in Ferguson after Brown’s killing, and who campaigned on a progressive platform of ending cash bail for nonviolent offenses and fighting mass incarceration.”
