Bumped and Updated By Oleg: Oleg From The People’s Cube threatened with 5 years in jail

Oleg dropped this in the comments:

This is Oleg. Thank you all for your kind words. I’m currently free on bail posted by my wife. David Horowitz is going to cover my legal expenses. In the meantime, the biggest help to me is spreading the word and pressuring the GMU to drop the charges before it comes to court, which is set for February, 2017.

Please help Oleg out by tweeting, facebooking, emailing or posting on your own blog about this ridiculous railroading and the outrageous specter of a 5 year sentence. This is pure crap.

“Pro-Israel Artist Threatened With 5 Years in Jail for Anti-Terror Posters at GMU,” by Daniel Greenfield, FrontPage, November 14, 2016:

It’s not a story out of the Soviet Union though Oleg Atbashian, an artist, activist and commentator, had gotten in trouble for defying the authorities there too.

“Back in my Soviet dissident days, when I was collecting signatures in defense of Andrei Sakharov, I was screamed at, threatened, and lectured by the KGB and Communist funcionaries. What I never imagined was that in the United States, the land of the free, I would not only be subjected to similar treatment, but go to jail,” Oleg writes.

But that’s exactly what happened to him.

Oleg’s mixture of art and satire took off with Communists for Kerry. He’s the mastermind behind The People’s Cube and his tweaking of the radical left and  its alliance with Islamic terrorists allowed him to continue the same fight he had pursued in the days of the Soviet Union. But as the US comes to resemble the USSR, political satire and activism carries a serious price.

This is what happened to Oleg when he put up some of his Freedom Center posters challenging the anti-Semitic environment created by the left’s alliance with Islamic terrorists on campus.

This was supposed to be a two-day poster campaign, to counteract the George Mason University hosting an official national conference for Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which is an anti-Semitic organization with well-documented ties to Hamas – a terrorist group whose stated goal is to exterminate the Jews. The GMU poster campaign was conceived by the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

My part in it was to create provocative artwork for the posters and to hang them around the GMU campus, as well as to distribute flyers in order to raise awareness among the students, faculty, and the administration about the true meaning of their support for the SJP conference.

On the first day, my friend and I placed a few stickers on walls, poles, and signs around the GMU campus. We also placed paper flyers inside and outside the university buildings. We had decided to hang the larger posters on the following night, right before the start of the SJP conference.

Arriving at the campus in the evening, we noticed a large police presence everywhere, including the campus Starbucks. From what we overheard at the tables, the police were on the lookout for people posting “disturbing” flyers. At one point we considered canceling our mission due to this higher risk, but then decided to hang a few posters in new locations, in order to get the message out more effectively.

We only had time to hang three large posters when, at about 4am, our car was pulled over by a GMU PD cruiser with flashing lights. As we found out later, they already had a description of our rental KIA Optima. Officer M.J. Guston and his female partner, Officer Daniels, requested to see our drivers’ licenses, which they took away. Then they inquired if we had any weapons and proceeded with the visual search, noticing our bucket with mixed wallpaper paste and some rolled posters on the back seat, covered with towels.

The police officers took pictures of the contents of our car and retrieved some of the loose fliers from the floor as evidence. They claimed that since we were covering the posters and flyers with towels, we intended to conceal our wrongdoing. We explained that the towels were needed to wipe our hands, to prevent the bucket from spilling, and to stop the papers from rolling around the car, which was the honest truth.

The story sounds Kafkaesque. But it only gets more so.

  1. Hopefully they get an ethical judge so the case gets thrown out.
    Wrongdoing?
    This all sounds like something out of “1984”, “Brave New World” & “Demolition Man”.

  2. Equal Justice for all, Free Speech, right to bear arms, right to peaceably assemble, address grievances, freedom of Religion…. the list of endangered “God Given Rights” grows as each day passes in Progressive/socialist/communist circles in Academia, Government, Unions, BLM, Special interest groups and manufactured protected classes

  3. Comrade Oleg should appreciate the opportunity to visit the gulag for a few years. He can take the opportunity to better learn the benefits of the state’s benevolence and support for the oppressed Hamas.

    But seriously – like posters on campus never occurred before this. That just sounds ludicrous.

  4. “Then they inquired if we had any weapons and proceeded with the visual search, noticing our bucket with mixed wallpaper paste and some rolled posters on the back seat, covered with towels.”

    Sorry Oleg, you didn’t have the required concealed carry permit.

  5. Perhaps we should rethink this free college thing. If we cut off government funding to universities, students would eventually demand that these institutions offer education with value. Furthermore, there would be little or no money to hire professional agitators as “professors” who teach bullshit courses like womens’ studies or the nonesuch.

    If college is free, then eventually you get what you pay for – which is something of little to no value. However, if college costs money, people will want value roughly equal to the cost.

  6. Oleg Atbashian’s The People’s Cube (I’m “Juche Couture” on there) is the site where I first heard of IOTW. I bought his book, “Shakedown Socialism” – great read and eye-opening from someone who’d been through the death throes of Soviet Union socialism.

    I hope Oleg prevails against the Jew-hating, Filthy Mohammedan Savage Terrorist loving assholes at George Mason University, soon to be renamed Georgi Masonovich Glorious Political Reeducation Kamp.

  7. Little safe-space, brown shirt wanna-be’s make me SICK to my stomach. Had to call the cops because it made them sad or some shit? Well, fuck Islam. It’s a cult. I have this opinion. I can put up posters mocking it if I want to. It’s my constitutional RIGHT. Call the cops on me and I’ll sue you all the way to hell. 😡
    Prayers for Oleg and his friend. I hope the little brownshirts who cried wolf end up sitting on a 1001 tacks.

  8. Ya, Spencer’s my guy, but Sultan deserves the link. I don’t know why I kept the read more there with the Jihad Watch thing.
    But it’s good to have the link in the comments. Thanks Al.

  9. This man is clearly a thoughtcriminal, which I intend as a compliment. I agree this should be Trump’s first pardon.

    Maybe President Trump will cut funding for any of the sniveling students arrested for rioting or other violent protest. Surely the prospect of gainful employment will scare them shitless.

  10. This is Oleg. Thank you all for your kind words. I’m currently free on bail posted by my wife. David Horowitz is going to cover my legal expenses. In the meantime, the biggest help to me is spreading the word and pressuring the GMU to drop the charges before it comes to court, which is set for February, 2017.

  11. From the People’s Cube:

    You’ve been counted, Thought Criminal #14016189

    Write down this number and report to your Kommissar at the nearest railroad station.
    Don’t forget warm clothes and a shovel!

    This was written as satire but unfortunately it is what our country was becoming under Obama and his Progs. With the election of Trump, hopefully we can change course and return to a country ruled by just laws and not by people who’s feelings have been hurt.
    Best of luck Oleg. Our prayers are with you. I will wear my Dead Che shirt (available at The People’s Cube) with a renewed pride.

  12. There is no way in hell he will get 5 years in jail. Maybe 5 years probation.
    Look at that kind face, he looks like my grandfather.
    Normally I would say don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. But what crime is it?
    Defacing property? 5 years? Give me a break.

  13. Ironically their Moto is “Freedom and Learning”. You got to admit that’s pretty damn funny. All public education is our enemy, from K thru 12, to state universities. It was part of several devious plans. I do hope this gets on Trumps radar.

  14. For those who wanted to have the posters we did at GMU, here’s a link to my Dropbox folder with two PDF files inside. Download and print as many as you want! The graphic is scaleable, meaning that any size will look just as sharp.

  15. I am ashamed …. please accept my humble apologies Oleg … this is not what this country is supposed to be about … I am ashamed

    I will do everything I can to bring this hatred to light. Our campuses are a vile breeding ground of hatred, intolerance & bigotry. if we are to survive, this must stop.

    Godspeed Oleg … thoughts & prayers … keep fighting!

  16. As long as parents have to pay for their kids’ insurance until they’re 26, they might as well home school them until they’re 26 too. To hell with these commie islamunist colleges. Boycott boycott!! God bless you Oleg.

  17. Posted the links to my homepage on Gab.
    Saying a victory prayer for you Oleg. The strong opposition means you have a powerful message – it hurts them to look at it. But they are the ones breaking the law, not you.
    Good luck and God Bless.

  18. “I found I own the world from the people’s cube.” – I love this sentence.

    I too have found that I possess a far deeper understanding of the social and cultural failings of our nation by spending time with both blogs…

    I Love It when an idea comes together in a pithy statement!

    MSG Grumpy

  19. i have just written a STRONGLY WORDED LETTER to GMU!!!!!

    oleg, what happens to someone who loses their number? i can’t find mine anywhere, am i in the deep doodoo?

  20. The imbeciles who “arrested” Oleg are the one’s who need to go to jail. Take away their badges and guns.

    Anybody knows you must have a permit to carry posters and glue in the back seat of your car. What were these idiots sniffing or smoking?
