|"Antifa is using good-hearted but wrong-headed people like this to shield their subversive, violent campaign of intimidating the political opposition. They are not only bashing the skulls of fascists and racists. They are beating up those who they think voted for Donald Trump, making their attacks far more political than the MSM is willing to say."|
Rick Moran dissection of a New York Times Op-Ed by four liberal clergy members that sought to whitewash AntiFa violence is an interesting read. The clergymen arrogantly dismissed President Trump's claim that "both sides" engaged in violence during the Charlottesville riot, painting AntiFa as a largely peaceful group.
Moran raises the disclosure that Obama's FBI and DHS warned the then-President about AntiFa violence, saying that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies.
Primary instigators, not just "a small group" of angelic, club-wielding fascists.
"Antifa is using good-hearted but wrong-headed people like this to shield their subversive, violent campaign of intimidating the political opposition. They are not only bashing the skulls of fascists and racists. They are beating up those who they think voted for Donald Trump, making their attacks far more political than the MSM is willing to say."
In another article published a day earlier, Moran pointed out that Feds Have Been Warning State and Local Cops About Antifa Violence for More Than a Year, a fact that the Times' four liberal clergy members conveniently ignored.
Trey Sanchez weighs in on the same issue, citing a Politico story as his source. Politico, while offering strong evidence that the government does indeed consider these groups terroristic, does not support claims that these groups have been declared as terrorist groups.
That does, however, seem to be the direction that the FBI and the Justice Department are heading, and that is encouraging.
Jonathan Turley makes in interesting point when he addresses an ironic fact: academic Marxists are destroying the very thing that gives them power:
Ironically, [Dartmouth Professor Mark Bray] and others have come to use the intellectual freedom of our universities to advance the most anti-intellectual movement in our history. They are destroying the very academic institutions that have protected their extreme views. Just as the father of the atomic bomb, Robert Oppenheimer, said that “physicists have known sin,” the antifa movement is the sin of academia in abandoning our core values.
These protesters believe that history shows the dangers of free speech and the need to deny it to those who would misuse it. It is a familiar sentiment that “all the experience... accumulated through several decades teaches us... to deprive the reactionaries of the right to speak and let the people alone have that right.” Those were the words of another early anti-fascist, China's Communist Party leader Mao Zedong.
Chick-fil-A Evil, AntiFa, Not So Much
The Face of Evil?
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a self-proclaimed “anti-hate” watchdog group that has endeavored to save America from the “hateful” pro-family rhetoric of businesses such as Chick-fil-A, finally delivered the verdict on antifa:
Got that? AntiFa openly advocates the violent overthrow of the Government of the United States, openly pursues violence against the police - and anyone else they think might disagree with them - but they're not a "hate group", according to the SPLC...which tells us all we need to know about the SPLC.

“Instead of wondering why foreigners hate Americans, a more fruitful inquiry for the Democrats might be to ask why Americans are beginning to hate Democrats.”--Ann Coulter, "Treason," 2003
