Antifa and their apologists are advocating for the use of violence to achieve their goals such as repression of free speech and free assembly — just like their forefather Adolf Hitler did. It’s funny how liberals say that violence is not the answer until it’s their violence, then it becomes absolutely essential.
According to The Hill:
Mike Isaacson, who is one of the founders of Smash Racism D.C., an antifa organization in Washington said:
“The justification [of the use of violence] is that Nazi ideology at its very core is founded on violence and on wielding power by any means.”
“I don’t think anyone should think that someone who is intent on politically organizing for the sake of creating a state-sponsored genocide — I don’t think is something that we should protect.”
Mark Bray, a Dartmouth historian stated in defense of Antifa using violence:
“The argument is that it needs to be stopped immediately, because if you let it grow, that poses a danger to society.”
On Sunday, antifa protesters hurled glass bottles and bricks at police officers monitoring a far-right march in Portland, Ore.
And the University of California, Berkeley, is bracing for the possibility of more violent clashes on Thursday, when conservative political commentator and former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro is scheduled to speak.
There is no central organizing committee governing antifa, and different affiliated groups have different priorities and governing principles, making it impossible to gauge the growth of the movement in the wake of the election.
But activists and law enforcement sources say anecdotally that their numbers have almost certainly swelled. Jim Pasco, executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police, the nation’s largest law enforcement union, told The Hill that he has “for sure” seen rising interest in the movement since Trump’s election, noting that six months ago he had never even heard of antifa.
Antifa does not use violence in self defense; they use it as an offense, especially when they have a 10 to 1 advantage or when they are attacking young girls and veterans in wheelchairs. In one on one confrontations, antifa activists generally end up on the losing end of the stick. Antifa is also very anti-police but that comes as no surprise since police uphold the laws that antifa breaks. So, naturally they hate them.
One of antifa’s other attack victims is capitalism. Most antifa protesters are at least socialists, although many more are outright communists, sharing their Maoist/Marxist agenda wherever they go.
Their financing is also very murky, although I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that George Soros is somewhere in the mix. If it’s anti-American, you can safely bet your last dollar on the fact that Soros supports it. Antifa also receives moral support from Hollywood liberals and some in Congress — like John McCain and Marco Rubio. Sooner or later, and I’m hoping it’s sooner, I sincerely hope the Department of Homeland Security begins dogging antifa at their violent rallies.
