This occurred in Olympia Washington. Watch the antifa “men”.
Police charged a protester who allegedly attacked a Trump supporter after an event at a Manhattan nightclub Saturday night that was headlined by ultra right-winger Mike Cernovich.
Violence erupted around 10:30 p.m. when anti-Trump protesters, including 30-year-old David Campbell, clashed with alt-right supporters as they were leaving A Night For Freedom, a ticketed event held at a nightclub on West 50th Street and 12th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen.
About 80 protesters gathered outside as event-goers spilled out of the venue.
Police said Campbell spotted and followed the 56-year-old victim who had left the event. Once they were about a block away, Campbell allegedly choked and punched the man.
An Elon University computer science professor has dedicated herself to doxing people she considers to be white supremacists or far-right extremists, sending their personal information to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), left-wing groups, and even antifa, it has been revealed.
These are the same people that many liberals in media compared to American soldiers storming the beach at Normandy.
A California court has ordered noted Antifa activist Yvette Felarca to pay over $11,000 in damages to former Berkeley College Republicans President Troy Worden.
The ruling, issued Wednesday, comes after a restraining order filed against Worden by Felarca was dropped in October, prompting Worden and his lawyer, Mark Meuser, to sue Felarca for damages and attorney fees.
Harmeet Dhillon of the Dhillon Law Group, through which Meuser is representing Worden, said at the time that Felarca has a history of “filing and dismissing utterly frivolous cases against innocent targets” and pledged to hold her and her lawyers “accountable.”
Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison endorsed Antifa on Wednesday, tweeting a picture of himself smiling with an Antifa handbook.
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.
This year, an ideology that killed millions in the twentieth century attempted to resurrect itself. Oh, and the Nazis tried to make a comeback, too.
Noam Chomsky has criticised the anti-fascist movement and argues its tactics are a gift to the far right and US state repression.
The renowned academic, widely considered the founder of modern linguistics, says anti-fascists have instigated the use of violence in wholly reprehensible ways.
A large majority of children love the Saint-Nicholas feast and look forward to it for weeks. However, with the increasing cultural diversity of the Netherlands, opposition and criticism of it grows. A small minority of black people fuelled by ‘Antifa snowflakes’ have a problem with the fact that Saint-Nicolas’s helpers are dressed up with “blackface”. According to them it is racist and has a strong connection with slavery.
If you’re even barely intelligent and mildly educated, you’d realize that ideas such as “guilt by association” and “two wrongs make a right” are commonly accepted logical fallacies. One needn’t be particularly bright, nor even fully pubescent, to grasp this.
But for growing swaths of the pro-globalist—and therefore the unwittingly pro-corporate, pro-capitalist, and pro-banker—radical left, even “two wrongs make a right” is no longer sufficient. For them, it’s now “Commit the first wrong based on the theoretical possibility that a second wrong will be committed if you don’t hit first.”
‘Antifa’ clothing is no longer available on Walmart’s website as of Saturday afternoon. The clothing’s third-party manufacturer, TEE Bangers LLC, also appears to have pulled the line promoting the far-leftist group whose activities were “formally classified” by the Obama Administration “as domestic terrorist violence.”
As recently as Saturday morning, Breitbart News reported that the mega-retailer was offering at least 13 different “made in Mexico” sweatshirts that would “[allow you to] express yourself inside the opposition to the ideology, organizations, governments and people from the far right (fascism).”
You can find conservative policy centers like the Family Research Council on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate map,” but not the violent left-wing extremist group antifa.
Why not? Antifa’s radical activists are known for beating up those they view as “fascists,” but according to SPLC president Richard Cohen, antifa doesn’t actually espouse hate.
“If you are familiar with our work, we write about antifa often,” Mr. Cohen said in his Thursday testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee. “We condemn their tactics — I’ve said so publicly and we do so always — but antifa is not a group that vilifies people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion and the like.”
Mr. Cohen came to testify on domestic terrorism but wound up tangling with House Republicans over the SLPC’s extensive offshore financial holdings, its relationship with Google in creating a “hate news index,” and the politics behind its “hate map.”
Rep. Scott Perry, Pennsylvania Republican, blasted the SPLC for failing to include antifa, saying it “reduces your credibility,” and accused the group of picking and choosing its targets based not on empirical data but “only your opinion.”
The New York Times has glorified Antifa and its more violent “black bloc” rioters with a style guide, complete with riot gear advice.
In their article, titled “What to Wear to Smash the State,” the New York Times detailed the fashion of violent far-left rioters who enjoy “punching Nazis,” before advising what to wear during violent protests and riots.
Federal domestic terrorism investigators are probing “a number of” people animated by “kind of an Antifa ideology,” FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers Thursday.
“We do have a very active domestic terrorism program,” Wray told the House Homeland Security Committee. “And 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.”
