Attribute to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise
Hello again, friends, and welcome to Top Kek, your (sort of) weekly serving of the best and dumbest of the internet. The last couple of weeks have been decidedly unfunny, with tensions building in the Korean peninsula and an unnecessary wedge driven between the US and Russia by the deep state. So this week, we’ll do what we do best: have a lightweight laugh at the “ground troops” of the culture war, namely the Berkeley Antifa cultists.
Sargon of Akkad—This Week in Stupid (16/04/2017)
Sargon had other plans for his This Week in Stupid video, but Antifa will always be stupider than other possible topics. Dressed in black, masked, and hooded, they acted like the American left-wing, pansy version of ISIS, stomping their way across the police line to charge the peaceful assembly of Trump supporters on the other side. It all went downhill from there—particularly for Antifa, who (despite their use of M-80 fireworks and peculiar penchant for overturning garbage containers) took a big L in the Battle of Berkeley.
Since then, the “weaponized autists” of 4chan’s /pol/ board have taken it upon themselves to bring the violent members of Antifa to justice—discovering in the process that a man caught on video hitting a Trump supporter with a bike lock happens to be a self-described philosopher, who teaches Ethics.
Furthermore, it appears that Berkeley’s police department, who (once again) hung back and allowed the battle to unfold, may have been acting upon orders from a higher power; when pressed for answers as to why they hadn’t intervened, the officers standing by referred all questions to police chief Margo Bennett.
The Thinkery - Berkeley Mayor Connected to Antifa
But the corruption runs deeper: it appears that Berkeley’s mayor, Jesse Arreguin, has been connected to Antifa. He is also friends on Facebook with a woman named Yvette Falarca, who assisted in organizing the protest against Milo Yiannopoulos a few weeks ago.

Styxhexenhammer666 - Thoughts on Alex Jones as a "Performance Artist"
It came out a few days ago that Infowars’ Alex Jones describes himself as a performance artist; this is unsurprising, but it is also unsurprising that his words have been used against him and his fans by the mainstream media. The ever-thoughtful Styx shares his thoughts here, which happen to be much the same as my own.
This week, I rediscovered an old hobby. These images were created using Adobe Illustrator Draw for iPad.
That’s it for this week; it’s pretty heavy out there in the real world. Thanks again for joining me! See you next time.
