If you are familiar with Antifa at all you know that they aren’t exactly brainiacs. If they were smart, they would realize that they aren’t ‘anti-fascist’ at all. In fact, they are themselves fascist and are constantly doing fascist things like shutting down free speech or using violence to get their point across.
If you aren’t familiar with Antifa, check out their latest embarrassing moment in a long list of embarrassing moments.
A group of conservatives put together an event called ‘March for Jesus’ and things got a little weird when some Antifa thugs decided to show up and crash the party. Well, they tried to crash the party. It didn’t really work out.
A counter-protest in Portland staged against an event called ‘March for Jesus’ did not end well for one participant, who was hit by a pickup truck while running across the road.
The march was organized by a group called Patriot Prayer, led by a supporter of US President Donald Trump. Three activists who said they were part of the Antifa movement showed up to denounce the marchers as white supremacist trying to impose a religious worldview on America. The activists advocated the virtues of communism through a megaphone.
Check out the video.
Not the sharpest tool in the shed.
From The Daily Caller:
Video from the scene captured by Ruptly shows Antifa protesters shouting pro-Communist slogans into a megaphone while demonstrating against a Christian event in Portland, Oregon.
The protester who was eventually hit by the vehicle is seen referring to a Christian flag with a cross on it as a “white supremacist symbol.”
The accident reportedly broke the Antifa protester’s hip.
Thankfully, it looks like the government is starting to take Antifa seriously.
From Fox News:
The FBI is investigating people inspired by “kind of an Antifa ideology,” bureau Director Christopher Wray said Thursday.
Wray told members of the House Homeland Security Committee that people associated with the so-called anti-fascist or Antifa movement were subject to the FBI probe amid possible violent criminal activity.
“While we’re not investigating Antifa as Antifa — that’s an ideology and we don’t investigate ideologies — we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations, where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology,” he told the House panel.
We all remember what happened when Antifa showed up in Berkeley to protest against Milo being allowed to speak there. That’s basically Antifa in a nutshell. They are really into violence and have no interest in actually moving the conversation forward or being constructive.
In fact, people from that movement openly brag about using violence to get what they want.
From The Daily Caller:
Yvette Felarca, the Berkeley area school teacher and militant left-wing protester responsible for organizing the riot at the University of California, Berkeley in February 2017, claims that violence against the far-right is “not a crime.”
Felarca, who belongs to “By Any Means Necessary,” a far-left group, is currently facing assault charges after she was caught on video assaulting a white supremacist during a July 2016 rally in Sacramento, Cali.
