Antifa, the leftist so-called anti-fascist protest group, uses violence and destruction so many members cowardly cover their faces to hide their identity.
But when they get arrested, their faces become public, wreaking havoc when their employers and others discover who they are!
Benny Johnson at the IJR has collected a plethora of mugshots, and delivered them to the world of social media!
The disparate, loosely organized factions of the group are peppered throughout the country and show up at events that they deem ‘fascist’ in order to disrupt and often engage in criminal behavior.
A detailed list of what antifa stands for is hard to pin down, but it is certainly anti-Trump, and the group’s tactics typically involve the destruction of property and violence towards innocent civilians.
That violence has resulted in a number of antifa arrests over the past few months. Last weekend, marauding mobs of antifa thugs descended upon UC Berkeley’s campus in California in protest of a prayer event. The antifa members systematically hunted down and beat innocent civilians in the street, assaulting journalists, veterans and police officers along the way.
The behavior was enough to even get Nancy Pelosi to disavow them.
It also landed a number of antifa members behind bars.
It’s important to note that since antifa members engage in illegal criminal behavior, they typically cover their faces with masks so as to not be identifiable.
And they do!
Unfortunately, Emily Gillespie did not cover her face this weekend when she assaulted a reporter.
Here is the footage of the assault:

Here are just a few samples of some Antifa Thugs that have been arrested for violence. I would encourage you to go check out Benny Johnson’s article at the IJR for many more!
I want you to note the ages of these ANTIFA THUGS. Note they are almost all young. This new racism war is not among my generation, it is being fought by the latest generation of entitled snowflakes. Antifa, BLM, and most other groups fighting the fake “war on racism” are all young people who have no clue as to the realities of the world.
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 the Charlottesvill 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 a pass on their vile ideology.
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. Share these, as well as the rest of the mugshots at IJR. Let’s rip off their hoods!
