There’s been a lot of talk about far-left protests set to take place across the country on November 4. On Monday, the Gateway Pundit’s Lucian Wintrich said a person thought to be one of the leaders of the domestic terrorist group Antifa, issued a tweet that read, “can’t wait for November 4th when millions of antifa supersoldiers will behead all white parents and small business owners in the town square.”
The tweet, initially posted Monday morning, has been deleted but can still be seen here.
Wintrich added: “Adding to the open display of anti-white racism and coupled with violence against small business owners (for whatever reason), the top-rated reply doubled down…”
Should Congress Remove Biden from Office?
Twitchy called the post “odd,” and noted:
Hey, we get it. When you’re writing ‘news’ you want to get people’s attention, otherwise, why bother, right? And every once in awhile we’ll even write something a little silly (that’s what we do, after all) BUT sometimes we come across something that’s even too silly for us.
Twitchy further said the story “very well could be true HOWEVER, we have our doubts because @HashtagGriswold did a teensy bit of investigative reporting.”
He later added:
Wintrich later added:
Multiple far left radicals have taken to Twitter and various blogs to claim this initial tweet was a “joke.” As written to MIC, Twitter user Tom Bloke is not only a thought leader of the far left; people on the far left who push certain ideologies or, in this case, the normalization of anti-white violence/rhetoric under the guise of “humor”. Among his followers and the people who retweet “Tom Bloke” are far left Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca and Colin Taylor, the managing editor of Occupy Democrats, among many others.
These are people who think remarks such as “can’t wait [to] behead all white parents” are not only funny but that nobody should take offense to this normalization of violence against white people.
Imagine for a second if I, or any other conservative with a public voice, tweeted out a “joke” about how we should “behead all black parents” – how do you think that would play out?
Seeing as ANTIFA is labeled as a domestic terrorist group by the FBI and Homeland Security, and seeing as Bloke has a far left Twitter audience that includes many members of ANTIFA, this Tweet cannot be simply taken as a light-hearted “joke”.
I like how despite classification from the FBI and Homeland Security leftist media still refuses to acknowledge ANTIFA is a terrorist group. pic.twitter.com/2GesJz7rsU

While this particular tweet may or may not have been a sick joke, the concern about Antifa engaging in this type of behavior is no joke, as a post at Far Left Watch observed back in September:
It was recently brought to our attention via an anonymous tip that the prominent antifa website, It’s Going Down, began immediately advocating for the death of President Trump just days after he was elected. We’ve previously reported on this same site offering recruiting materials that depict Trump supporters being bayoneted, providing instructions on how to sabotage critical transportation infrastructure, and sharing recruiting videos from violent communist militia groups.
This new discovery shows that they have been advocating for physical violence against President Trump for much longer than previously thought. On November 13th, just days after Donald Trump was elected, It’s Going Down began promoting a downloadable anti-Trump poster that says “Make The Guillotine Red Again” and depicts President Trump under the blade of a guillotine.
“This theme of wishing to publicly execute ideological opponents borrows from the French Revolution and is alarmingly prevalent in far-left, communist circles,” Far Left Watch added, noting that Huffington Post contributor Jesse Benn tweeted something similar:

Given this as background, and given news that Antifa is now believed to have links to ISIS, one can certainly understand Wintrich’s concern upon seeing Bloke’s tweet.
Let’s face it, people tweet stupid stuff all the time, but tweets like this are certainly no joke, especially in the current political climate.
