Did you know that Antifa operates like IKEA?
They announce which cities they’ll be moving into next and this time it’s Philadelphia. But Antifa will not be selling Swedish meatballs. They’re trying to start a revolution that includes the use of force and violence against police officers. …Oh, and stealing your property.
As reported by our friends at The Daily Caller:
An armed Antifa group is launching a new cell in Philadelphia, with support from the “alt-left” alternative media.
The group currently hosts anti-police workshops called “Our Enemies in Blue.” The group draws inspiration from convicted murderers and calls for violence against the police, theft of goods, and armed insurrection.
Antifa websites like It’s Going Down, Sub.Media and Insurrection News have been promoting the group, which calls itself the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, calling on their readers to donate to a Fundrazr account for the creation of the new cell.
The “It’s Going Down” press release is so overblown and crazy, you’d swear it was published by someone who works for CNN (emphasis mine):
With the growth of each new branch we inch ever closer to the day when we can realize our revolutionary aspirations, live in a world of true freedom, and decisively eradicate the abhorrence of 21st century slavery.
Immersed in these struggles, against the state and its white supremacist militias, we are developing the capacity to liberate ourselves and others. We fight side by side with those facing state and reactionary violence and with each person we free from captivity the stronger we grow. As demonstrated by our resistance in Charlottesville, we will not cede one inch of ground to racists. As each new collective forms, we begin to create new political realities and continue the march together against white supremacy and for a dignified world.
Oh, and there’s a Huge banner right underneath this screen asking you to please send them money.
Boy, for a bunch of communists, they sure want some of that capitalism to be sent their way, don’t they?
Antifa and BLM are hate groups, with Antifa being a hate group that wears hoods. There is plenty of factual evidence of this, from their words to their actions.
Antifa and BLM showed up at that counter-protest with absolutely no intention of anything peaceful. They came armed with balloons full of chemicals and items to throw. They came to instigate fights.
Both sides have horrific ideology. But Antifa and BLM are the ones who have a record of riots and violence. Pointing that out in no way gives the white supremacists.
But the difference, and what makes BLM and Antifa worse, is that their history these last few years includes a LOT of violence.
As horrific as the white supremacists are in ideology, they have not been burning things down and causing riots. Again, that does not excuse white supremacists. What it does do is keep liberals, as they have been doing, from relegating BLM and Antifa to: “Peaceful counter-protesters.”
Liberals can spout their false narrative of “simply because one side “had a permit.” They can believe the false narrative of “simply because one side “had a permit.” And they can shout “simply because one side “had a permit.” all they want. It BLATANTLY goes against the facts on the ground.
The President was correct, both sides are vile. Antifa has priors.
