Just like we all know the left is what they call everyone else. They say were violent but look who's beating people, burning, rioting, and acting just like fascists pricks...

LETTER TO THE AMERICAN LEFT: ANTIFA IS NOT YOUR FRIEND
TUE, 2/28/2017 - BY NICHOLAS GOROFF



Though to many they may seem to be revolutionaries, primed to take the fight against whatever variety of perceived fascism, the self-proclaimed anti-fascists of “Antifa” are a millstone around the neck of the political left and possibly a greater danger to progressive and liberal values than even Donald Trump himself.

To be certain, while it may inspire a guttural cheer to see a white nationalist crackpot like Richard Spencer belted across the face, and may feel as though our nation stands on the cusp of revolution as swarms of black clad young people burn property and charge police lines, the net effects of these actions, both real and potential, must not be embraced as resistance mounts to Trump and rightwing populism throughout the West. Why not, you ask?

The reasons are a mix of the pragmatic and philosophical. For starters, through their wanton destruction and rioting, as well as unbridled enthusiasm for vandalism and violence, Antifa and their black bloc tactics are in many ways an outright gift to those who advocate for a police state. As their presence has become a standard affair at demonstrations and protest rallies, their particular version of “radical activism,” replete with its threats of violent insurrection and assaults on civilian bystanders, give the domestic security apparatus and its supporters perfect justification for increased surveillance and a crackdown on political speech.

The Rise of the Violent Left

Antifa’s activists say they’re battling burgeoning authoritarianism on the American right. Are they fueling it instead?
Since 1907, portland, oregon, has hosted an annual Rose Festival. Since 2007, the festival had included a parade down 82nd Avenue. Since 2013, the Republican Party of Multnomah County, which includes Portland, had taken part. This April, all of that changed.

In the days leading up to the planned parade, a group called the Direct Action Alliance declared, “Fascists plan to march through the streets,” and warned, “Nazis will not march through Portland unopposed.” The alliance said it didn’t object to the Multnomah GOP itself, but to “fascists” who planned to infiltrate its ranks. Yet it also denounced marchers with “Trump flags” and “red maga hats” who could “normalize support for an orange man who bragged about sexually harassing women and who is waging a war of hate, racism and prejudice.” A second group, Oregon Students Empowered, created a Facebook page called “Shut down fascism! No nazis in Portland!”

Next, the parade’s organizers received an anonymous email warning that if “Trump supporters” and others who promote “hateful rhetoric” marched, “we will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade … and drag and push those people out.” When Portland police said they lacked the resources to provide adequate security, the organizers canceled the parade. It was a sign of things to come.

...

The violence is not directed only at avowed racists like Spencer: In June of last year, demonstrators—at least some of whom were associated with antifa—punched and threw eggs at people exiting a Trump rally in San Jose, California. An article in It’s Going Down celebrated the “righteous beatings.”


An antifascist demonstrator burns a Blue Lives Matter flag during a protest in Portland, Oregon, in June.

...

A similar cycle has played out at UC Berkeley. In February, masked antifascists broke store windows and hurled Molotov cocktails and rocks at police during a rally against the planned speech by Yiannopoulos. After the university canceled the speech out of what it called “concern for public safety,” white nationalists announced a “March on Berkeley” in support of “free speech.” At that rally, a 41-year-old man named Kyle Chapman, who was wearing a baseball helmet, ski goggles, shin guards, and a mask, smashed an antifa activist over the head with a wooden post. Suddenly, Trump supporters had a viral video of their own. A far-right crowdfunding site soon raised more than $80,000 for Chapman’s legal defense. (In January, the same site had offered a substantial reward for the identity of the antifascist who had punched Spencer.) A politicized fight culture is emerging, fueled by cheerleaders on both sides. As James Anderson, an editor at It’s Going Down, told Vice, “This shit is fun.”

LETTER TO THE AMERICAN LEFT: ANTIFA IS NOT YOUR FRIEND
Doesn't matter. Islam is not their friend, either. Obviously.

Remember the "Oppressor/Oppressed" template under which the Regressives operate: Like Islam, Antifa is the "oppressed", and they will always defend the "oppressed" regardless of how much that group hates America.

Also remember, our Constitution was written by rich, white slave rapists, we stole the country from Mexico, we stole the country from the Indians, we're a greedy country, we're a racist country, we must be "fundamentally changed", we are evil, we are the problem. So this is payback.

I fear the left more than ultra right racists. Theses liberals spout virulent hyperbole and remind me of fascist Italian Blackshirts. Liberals intimidate, harass and use physiological warfare. They wave red flags at crazies on the right, what do you expect? They are as much to blame for Heather Heyers' death as that moron that ran her down, Liberals need to tone it down step back and reexamine their hateful confrontational tactics.

DOJ SECRETLY INVESTIGATING SOROS FUNDED ANTIFA PROTEST ORG
August 15, 2017

Daniel Greenfield


Here's the thing.

A lot of conservatives are very frustrated at inaction in certain areas. And they have a good point. Sometimes things that need to be done aren't happening. But other times they are moving forward secretly without making headlines.

Unlike Holder and Lynch, Sessions has to make some moves quitely without putting out press releases about them. Here's an example of one of those silent running investigations.

...

Which website is it? Disruptj20.org of the #DisruptJ20 protests whose stated mission was "NO PEACEFUL TRANSITION". It appeared on Antifa sites

DisruptJ20 planned to shut down as much of D.C. as possible.

...

Now, the DOJ is trying to shine a light under the rock.

NY 26th FINALLY DEM!
OP- No, they're fools like the gangsta wannabees that get the RW headlines in Oakland and Ferguson. Just as bad is the GOP propaganda hate machine that has shown those few fires and vandalism so many times the dupes think it's everywhere, not 6 months ago in about 3 places.

Not to mention the lies, spin and character assassination that make up most GOP voters' politics...Trump seems to be a believer too, along with the alt right and Nazis...

Antifa aren't Liberals or Dems, dupe. Or numerous. Arrest them. Along with Nazis who show up in armor.

They want an unopposed blitzkrieg. They're in the wrong country for that.
You mean like your unopposed blitzkrieg in Europe?
^ :cuckoo:
Antifa came from Europe, retard.

Every politician in Western Europe allows them to do whatever the hell they want. They are like the cartels in Mexico.
