‘Progressives’ Become Hitler Youth Targeting the ‘Zionist War Machine’

Nineteen-year-old Calla Walsh was already notorious before Monday’s protest violent attack against a Jewish business in New Hampshire:

Protesters voicing support for Palestine were arrested in connection with vandalism Monday at Elbit Systems of America, a defense contractor in Merrimack, police said.
Three people were arrested on several charges, including riot.
Police before 8 a.m. were called to 220 Daniel Webster Highway for reports of protestors blocking the driveway and multiple people believed to be on the roof.
The fire department also was sent for a report of smoke coming from the roof.
Police found protesters blocking the driveway voicing support for Palestine, according to Merrimack police.
They eventually vacated the roadway and allowed officers to access the property.
Officers discovered the front of the building had been spray painted with red paint, windows had been smashed, and at least one of the main lobby doors had been locked shut via a bicycle anti-theft device, police said.
Officers also confirmed that at least three people accessed the roof. They were charged with riot, sabotage, criminal mischief, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
Arrested were Sophie Marika Ross, 22, of Housatonic, Mass.; Calla Mairead Walsh, 19, of Cambridge, Mass., and Bridget Irene Shergalis, 27 of Dayville, Conn., according to police
Police said the smoke was caused by an incendiary device similar to ones later located on one of the suspects. Officers on the roof found more spray painting, smashed skylights and damage to HVAC equipment.
The three were held on preventive detention and will be arraigned in the Hillsborough County Superior Court – South at 1 p.m. Tuesday, authorities said.
The FBI is working to determine who else might have been involved.
Elbit Systems of America is a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., which is headquartered in Haifa, Israel. . . .
Gov. Chris Sununu condemned the attack.
“The antisemitism, hate, and significant damage protesters brought to Elbit America’s campus this morning has no place in our state and will not be tolerated,” he said. “I am confident law enforcement will work to bring those responsible for this vile act of hate to swift justice. The people of New Hampshire stand with Israel and with Elbit Systems of America.”

It’s a 21st-century Kristallnacht, and the perpetrators are “voicing support for Palestine,” to borrow the media’s euphemistic language. At least WMUR-TV did some actual reporting:

The protesters in front of the building identified themselves to News 9 as a group called Palestine Action U.S. They posted a photo on social media stating that their goal is to dismantle Elbit Systems and what they referred to as the “Zionist war machine.”
“We’re a direct-action network targeting Elbit Systems, their U.S. chapter specifically,” said Fergie Chambers, of Palestine Action U.S. “They are Israel’s largest weapons supplier. Eighty-five percent of the drones being used in Gaza right now are produced by this company. This location here in Merrimack, New Hampshire, produces display systems for fighter jets.”

Say hello to James “Fergie” Chambers:

The 38-year-old cop-hater is the decadent heir of a media fortune, “the first-born son of James Cox Chambers, the co-owner of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks with a net worth of $5.65 billion.” What happened to him? Well, his grandmother was good friends with Jane Fonda back in the day. And as for the notorious Calla Walsh . . .

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Calla Walsh in 2020

When she was in high school, Walsh became an organizer for the reelection campaign of Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, who faced a Democratic primary challenge from Joe Kennedy III. Somehow — it’s rather mysterious — Walsh and other left-wing youth were persuaded that Markey was a “progressive” hero (when, in fact, he’s a nondescript party hack) and believed that the young Kennedy was some kind of “right wing” menace. If anything, Calla Walsh’s role as a teenage leader of the “Markeyverse” illustrates just how naïve young leftists can be, but since then, she’s gone on to become a fixture in radical activism. And by “radical activism,” of course, I mean, Iran-sponsored Jew-hating:

In December 2022, a coalition of 28 organizations asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement over its extensive links to terrorist groups. Of particular concern was the BDS movement’s links to a mysterious “Mapping Project” that published an apparent hit list of targets linked to the U.S. government, Israel, and the Jewish community.
An investigative report by the Zachor Legal Institute exposed the Mapping Project’s links to supporters of terrorists, the BDS movement and, in all likelihood, the government of Iran.
The Mapping Project’s content makes it clear that its anonymous creators’ intention is to inspire violent attacks on the listed sites. The project’s website states, “Our goal in pursuing this collective mapping was to reveal the local entities and networks that enact devastation, so we can dismantle them. Every entity has an address, every network can be disrupted.” . . .
The project openly supports Palestinian terrorists, putting to rest any notion that the Mapping Project is merely a provocative academic exercise. “Glory to the martyrs! Free Palestine from the River to the Sea! Free All Political Prisoners!” the website proclaims in a statement expressing solidarity with Palestinian terrorists seeking the destruction of Israel. . . .
The identities of the project’s creators remain murky. However, one name has been reportedly linked to the project: Calla Walsh, a member of BDS Boston, Democratic Socialists of America and, as of April 2022, Office Manager for Massachusetts Peace Action. An investigation by the Canary Mission found four tweets by Walsh that idolized the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist group.
Walsh says she’s simply a promoter of the Mapping Project and denies having worked on it. However, Al-Jazeera reported that she “participated” in it and, in an apparent slip of the tongue, referred to the project as “we” in a tweet. She’s also implied that she knows the authors of the project who, she says, “have been working on it for years.” . . .
The common denominator among the groups that appear closest to the Mapping Project is support for the Iran-backed PFLP terrorist group.
The first PFLP connection comes through BDS Boston, whose Twitter account was the first to report the project’s debut. As mentioned, BDS Boston member Calla Walsh posts pro-PFLP material. . . .

So, they’re making a list of Jews, and putting them on a map, and they’re doing this while supporting an Iran-backed terrorist group. Move along. Nothing to see here. Just “young people who are taking an interest in peace and social justice,” as Jamie Raskin might say.
