Self-proclaimed BLM activist, convicted pedophile sentenced to 39 months following brutal attack on Trump supporter


WASHINGTON, D.C.- On Wednesday, March 16th, a 40-year-old convicted pedophile with a criminal history and a self-proclaimed Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist, was sentenced to 39 months in prison for unlawful possession of a firearm and assault during a November 2020 Trump rally in D.C.

In October 2021, Kenneth Deberry of Washington, D.C., plead guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, which is a federal offense as well as simply assault, a District of Columbia offense. According to the press release:

“He was sentenced by the Honorable Tanya S. Chutkan to 33 months in prison on the weapons charge and another 180 days for assault. Following completion of his prison term, he will be placed on three years of supervised release.”

FOX 17 reported that Deberry was counter-protesting at the rally while in possession of a loaded firearm. Deberry is a convicted pedophile and felon, which means he is not allowed, by law, to possess a firearm.

According to reports, on November 14, 2020, at approximately 4:00 p.m., the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) responded to the area of 17th and I Street NW after reports of assaults occurring during a march taking place that day.

Court documents state that Deberry, who was suspected of carrying out one of the assaults, was apprehended by officers.

During a search, police reportedly recovered a loaded .38-caliber revolver in his waistband. Deberry has previous convictions in D.C., including for robbery, sexual abuse of a child, and other felony offenses.

As part of the plea, the government dismissed assault and disorderly conduct charges in the incident at the rally.

According to court documents, on May 14, 2021, while on home detention awaiting trial, Deberry got into an argument with a male relative at his home. Reportedly, during the argument, he strangled the relative, repeatedly punched him in the face, and later pushed him from behind when the man tried to flee.

The man was hospitalized and suffered a collapsed lung, fractured ribs, a broken nose, and other injuries. Deberry was subsequently arrested and has been in custody ever since.

Court documents also showed that in 2008, Deberry was convicted of raping, giving a sexually transmitted disease, and impregnating a 13-year-old girl while in possession of a firearm which made the victim “fear for her life.”

As part of Deberry’s plea deal for his most recent criminal behavior, the Department of Justice said that the government dismissed the assault and disorderly conduct charges related to the assault of the Trump supporter.

The assault charges Deberry plead guilty to stem from the incident where he severely assaulted a male relative.

Daily Caller reported Jorge Ventura captured the scene of the Trump supporter getting sucker-punched back in November 2020. The video immediately went viral, watch below:

At the time, police said in a statement:

“The suspects were involved in a collaborative effort to incite violence during first amendment assemblies at the listed location. One of the suspects struck the victim rendering him unconscious. Other suspects assaulted the victim and took his property. Four suspects were apprehended at the scene by responding officers.”

Report: Three men – BLM and Antifa activists – convicted of framing Proud Boys for their crimes

March 5th, 2022

ATLANTA, GA- According to a report from the Post Millennial, a group of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa rioters have been convicted on federal charges.

This, after attempting to frame members of the Proud Boys for a series of vandalism and arson attacks that were carried out on Atlanta police vehicles and United States Postal Service property during the lead up to the 2020 presidential election.

The three men, 35-year-old John Wesley Wade, 37-year-old Ellie Melvin Brett, and 19-year-old Vida Jones, were arrested in late October 2020 on federal charges in connection to the string of violent incidents.

Reportedly, the suspects tried to frame the Proud Boys by leaving notes near the sites of vandalism that read “Stand By,” a reference to when former President Donald Trump told the right-wing group to “stand back and stand by” after he was asked to condemn white supremacist militias during the first 2020 presidential debate.

The incident, which took place around 12:50 a.m. on October 2, 2020, included several fires that were set at the West End Post Office located at 848 Oglethorpe Avenue.

One fire was set within a bin of mail on the loading dock of the Post Office building itself, destroying much of the mail and damaging other property in the possession of the United States Postal Service.

The other fires reportedly damaged five USPS vehicles that were parked in the secure, enclosed parking area.

The attack was allegedly one of at least seven related arson and vandalism incidents directed at law enforcement, a bank, and other government entities that occurred around the Atlanta metropolitan area between September 30, 2020 and October 2, 2020.

On September 30, 2020, in the parking lot of a Walmart located at 835 M.L.K. Jr. Drive, the window of an Atlanta Police Department (APD) patrol vehicle was smashed with a brick with a note wrapped around it.

The note also included the phrase “stand by” and the notes contents were similar to messaging depicted on an Instagram account (@nofaithlesselector) associated with Brett.

According to the criminal complaint filed on October 27, 2020, in one Instagram video, Brett was wearing the same jacket that was caught on surveillance footage, stating “Proud boys stand by.”

On the same day, September 30, 2020, just one hour after the first incident, another brick with a note attached was thrown through through the window of a Wells Fargo Bank at 240 Peachtree street in Atlanta.

The note on the brick referenced the Electoral College and again included the phrase “stand by.” A fingerprint left on the note preliminary matched with a known print of Wade’s.

At around 1:33 a.m. on October 1, 2020, shortly after the second incident, the window of another marked APD vehicle parked outside a residence was smashed with a brick. No note was left at this incident.

After the three brick incidents, the incidents escalated to include arsons the next night. The suspects reportedly filmed the fires and posted the videos to social media.

The first arson attacked, which included Jones, occurred overnight on October 1, 2020 when a fire was lit to damage a marked Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) police patrol vehicle that was parked at the MARTA Ashby Transit Station.

Within two hours after the fourth incident, several fires were set at the West End Post Office residing on Oglethorpe Avenue. The multiple fires damaged five USPS vehicles and destroyed mail in a bin on the post officer’s loading dock.

At around 2:30 a.m. on October 2, 2020, fire was also set to damage two East Point Public Works Department vehicles parked in a City of East Point parking area near 1659 Linwood Avenue and McGee Way in East Point, Georgia.

Fox 5 Atlanta reported that the East Point Police Department, the Marta Police Department, the Atlanta Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Atlanta Fire Department, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, and the State Fire Marshal’s Office were all involved in the arson and vandalism investigation.

Brett pled guilty and is set to be sentenced on March 22nd. Jones, who also pled guilty, has a sentencing hearing scheduled on March 25th.

On Monday, February 28th, Wade was sentenced to five years in federal prison on federal arson charges. He was subject to GPS ankle-monitoring at the time of the attacks when he was released on bond for burning down the Wendy’s location in Atlanta, Georgia.

Man charged in attack on truckers in Canada identified as radical far-left Antifa member

February 8th, 2022

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Several people were run down by a vehicle while participating in the Freedom Convoy 2022 in Winnipeg on Saturday, and the driver allegedly responsible for the attack has been identified as a radical far-left Antifa activist.

Four people taking part in the COVID vaccination protest were transported to the hospital after a white Jeep slammed into them.

The man alleged to be the driver of the vehicle, 42-year-old David Zegarac, was taken into custody an hour later after a brief struggle with police.

Winnipeg police reported:

“With the assistance of the RCMP, WPS officers were able to stop the vehicle in the 4800 block of Portage Ave. at approximately 10:30 p.m. The lone male driver was arrested after a brief struggle.

“The Jeep struck four adult males. Three sustained minor injuries that did not require medical attention. The fourth was treated in (the) hospital and released.”

Zegarac has been charged with four counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of dangerous operation of a conveyance cause bodily harm, two counts of failure to stop after accident knowingly reckless, two counts of fail to stop at the scene of an accident, and dangerous operation of a conveyance, according to Winnipeg police.

A press release by police stated:

“On February 4, 2022, at 9:50 p.m., Winnipeg Police were advised of a motor vehicle collision near Broadway and Memorial Boulevard. The initial information was that a westbound Jeep Patriot had driven through a group of protesters that were part of the Freedom Convoy at the Legislative grounds.

“The Jeep fled west down Portage Avenue, where numerous witnesses reported it travelling at high speeds and passing through red lights.”

Self-proclaimed BLM activist, convicted pedophile sentenced to 39 months following brutal attack on Trump supporter

Zegarac, who remains in custody, is reportedly the frontman for Canadian punk bands The Brat Attack, Dead Peasants Revolt, The Black Mass Brigade, and Class War Kids, according to Rebel News.

The new outlet reported:

“His online bio states that his song lyrics deal primarily with anarchist politics and that he is an outspoken vegan and a long-time anti-racist activist. A feature on Zegarac in the now defunct alternative online publication The Scope published in April 2008 noted Zegarac’s radical left-wing activism.”

The Scope reported on April 24, 2008, that Zegarac felt out of place, leaving his hometown of Winnipeg for the more sedate St. John’s. Winnipeg was known for protests every year back then, but St. John’s was quieter.

Zegarac reportedly moved to St. Johns to live with his girlfriend Megan Doyle, a bassist for the Brat Attack, while she attended university. Together, they formed the Applecart Collective, an activist and anarchist group.

Zegarac said at the time:

“I was surprised by the lack of activists when I got here. I get the gist that maybe Newfoundland is more community-oriented than Winnipeg. I mean, in Winnipeg there’s a greater division between the haves and the have-nots…

“Primarily, people who are progressive, who want to see change, they’re sick and tired of being like, ‘buy, buy, buy consumerism’ [and] sucking at the corporate teat. They’re people who are disillusioned about what they can do in Newfoundland to make a difference.”

Police said that, while they do not know the motive at this time, Zegarac’s comments after his arrest indicated the attack had no relation to the COVID vaccine mandates:

“Some comments were made by the accused that tends to suggest this was not specifically about the (vaccine) mandates.

“He wasn’t for or against any of the general views that are floating around this country.”

Veteran state trooper and his dispatcher wife give heartbreaking final sign off before being fired over “mandate”

January 14, 2022

OLYMPIA, WA — The collateral damage of Gov. Jay Inslee’s vaccine mandate last October includes the loss of seasoned Washington State Patrol employees throughout the state who were fired for not complying with the governor’s order.

KING 5 reported last fall that out of 2,200 Washington State Patrol employees, at least 74 commissioned troopers and 53 civilian employees of the agency were going to lose their jobs after failing to meet the state’s vaccine requirements.

The number of employees losing their jobs represents about six percent of the force, according to KING 5.

One officer who chose to be fired rather than comply with the governor’s mandate is Trooper Robert Lamay.

As he signed off duty for the final time on Oct. 15, Lamay said:

“This is my final sign off after 22 years of serving the citizens of the State of Washington, I’m being asked to leave because I am ‘dirty.’

“Numerous fatalities, injuries, I’ve worked sick, I’ve played sick — we’ve buried lots of friends over these years. I’d like to thank you guys. 

“I’d like to thank the citizens of Yakima County as well as my fellow officers within the valley. 

“Without you guys I wouldn’t have been very successful, and you’ve kept me safe and got me home to my family every night. Thank you for that.

“I wish I could say more, but this is it so State 1034, this is the last time you’ll hear me in a state patrol car, and Jay Inslee can kiss my ass.”

Another video captured a sergeant with the Washington State Patrol signing off on his final shift just before the vaccine mandate’s deadline.

The officer is identified as Sgt. Richard Thompson.

The video was posted on TikTok by cel_marie86. The sergeant’s wife is a dispatcher and reportedly also losing her job too due to the vaccine mandate.

She participated in her husband’s signoff.

The sergeant says in part:

“Due to my personal choice to take a moral stand for medical freedom and personal choice, I will be signing out of service for the last time today after nearly 17 years of serving the citizens of the State of Washington. It’s been my honor.”

He ended his signoff by acknowledging the reduced levels of staffing and the risks involved with that:

“Please, please, please, take care of each other. So please take care of each other. Be safe and make sure you all go home.

Again, thank you to each and every one of you for being alongside me. Help each other out.

“But as for me, I am out of service and on to new adventures.”

His wife responded as a dispatcher and noted he was a hard-working, outstanding, determined and caring individual and thanked him for his service:

“On behalf of our co-workers, you’ve been a pleasure to work with for the last 17 years.

“You accomplished great things here, and don’t forget your friendships along the way.”
