Democrat and Union-Connected Antifa Terrorist Group "Shut Down DC" Targets Josh Hawley's Home, Menaces His Family

Kyle Sheideler re-linked his article (with Dave Reaboi) from October 2020 noting that Democrats and unions employ the leaders of the terrorist organization responsible for the harassment of a US Senator, "Shut Down DC."

Shut Down DC was founded in 2019 as a coalition of DC-based direct-action groups, initially launched around the climate change agenda, and focused primarily on agitating for the Green New Deal. The group was sponsored by All Out DC, a local Antifa group with a professed objective of, according to its Twitter profile, "Burn Down the American Plantation."

The group's ambitions are greater than the November election, of course; its members are not simply Democratic partisans. The Disruption Project urges its supporters to "stand up and take action against the unjust systems of racial capitalism, the heteropatriarchy, white supremacy and settler colonialism." Its more immediate goals include an effort to

dismantle the systems that uphold structural racism and win reparations for Black folks, win some sort of repatriation of land to indigenous people, create an open US border and an end to imperialism, and a just transition out of a destructive economy.

...

Timeline to a Meltdown

The days and weeks leading up to the election are crucial, too. In an October 8 update on planning operations, Shut Down DC offered a timeline urging affinity groups to begin scouting targets, and making preparations--beginning this week.

...

As recently as last year, Shut Down DC's directors were Liz Butler and Patrick Young, both veteran professional organizers with decades of experience between them. As environmental activist group Friends of the Earth's Vice President of Organizing and Strategic Alliances, Butler played a role in Inauguration Day protests against President George W. Bush in 2001. She also assisted in organizing IMF protests a year later, leading to over 600 arrests, as protesters targeted multiple locations throughout the city, and threw rocks and smoke bombs at police. Washington, D.C. was subsequently sued for its aggressive (though largely effective) crowd dispersal tactics in a long-running case that was finally settled in 2016.

Shut Down DC's other director, Patrick Young, markets himself as a professional direct-action organizer for hire, offering "training, action support, strategic research, and digital campaign support." After a stint at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Americaís second-largest labor union, Young is currently employed by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. On his LinkedIn page, he touts his volunteer experience with the Continental Collective of Rising Tide North America, an environmental direct-action group.

On his website, Young writes about "Where and How" election chaos will play out. He ends the piece by warning,

those of us who are committed to seeing Donald Trump removed from office should start organizing now to fight back against the Trump administration's systematic efforts at voter suppression, hit the streets in key states where election outcomes are likely to be contested, and be ready to take bold direct action to bring Washington, DC to a standstill if Trump refuses to concede.

He also tweeted:

@ShidelerK

We are likely to see more of the harassment like that which @HawleyMO's family faced. Elected officials should move to hold accountable unions and non-profits orgs whose employees orchestrate these Antifa-linked direct action groups.
