Cuz it’s Antifa’s job to ‘intimidate and silence’

Michelle Higgins was protesting a high-profile police killing in St Louis when the officers grabbed her.

The activist’s arrest for “failure to disperse” on 15 September 2017 wasn’t the only punishment she faced for marching. When she was released a day later, she learned that the police department had posted her name, age and address on Twitter, alongside 32 others arrested during the chaotic demonstrations sparked by the acquittal of an officer.

Toronto police launch investigation into attack on photojournalist at hateful anti-hate rally

The language from the hate rally organizers is Orwellian…

…Rachel Epstein, executive director of the United Jewish People’s Order, which was involved in organizing the counter-protest, said the point of the whole event was “saying there is no place for hate in our city.”

“It was really about love and about unity,” she said.

“Violence, in my view, is just out of the question,” said Bernie Farber, chair of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, which was also involved in the event.

“We have to be better than that,” he said. “I think the police are absolutely correct to look into it.”

End the Double Standards in Reporting Political Violence

Let’s take a short walk down memory lane. Not long ago, on January 2, 2016, a small group of armed protesters seized an unoccupied federal building in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is located in a relatively isolated area in eastern Oregon, and the occupied building itself was far from any populated area. The protests were related to a long-running land dispute between the federal government and Steve and Dwight Hammond — a dispute that culminated in a vindictive prosecution against the Hammonds, under the federal Anti-terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, for two “burns” that caused a trifling amount of damage (less than $1,000) to public lands.

The occupation created a media firestorm.

GOLDSTEIN: Antifa thugs attacking journalists is nothing new

The unprovoked assault on my Toronto Sun colleague, photographer Stan Behal, at an “anti-fascist” rally on Nathan Phillips Square on Saturday is nothing new for so-called “Antifa” thugs.

A day after the attack on Behal by a lone thug, the Washington Post reported on similar attacks on U.S. media at a Sunday, Washington, D.C. Antifa rally.

A Canadian journalist was physically attacked for doing his job. That should be huge news: Robyn Urback

A member of the news media was assaulted by a protester in Toronto this past weekend.

The altercation happened on camera, in front of police, with dozens of people standing by. The incident in which a journalist was struck by an activist — ironically, at an anti-hate rally — seemed entirely unprovoked: a pathetic attack on someone who was just there to do his job.


Now I ask you, could this lack of coverage have anything to do with the fact our liberal-left media sympathizes with Antifa and their fellow travelers? They have shown time and again that they are willing to give these thugs a pass while focusing on their Neo-Nazi White Supremacist straw-man. Telling the truth disrupts the narrative after all.

‘Do Him Like Gaddafi’ — Antifa Protesters Caught On Video Threatening To Kill The President

One year ago, President Trump told the American people that there was “violence on both sides” during the Charlottesville riots.

Those riots pitted neo-Nazis marching in the city against Antifa and other progressive groups. The powder keg was lit and both sides committed acts of violence against each other. The riots left many injured and one activist lost her life when awhite supremacists rammed his car into a crowd. Trump was attacked for the “both sides” comment in the wake of the violence.

FUREY: Antifa went after journalists and hardly anyone mainstream is speaking out

This past weekend they were gunning for a fight. All the misfits, the rebels looking for a cause, the angry young women and men who sign up for the fringe protest movements of the day.

On one side you’ve got the neo-Nazis and white nationalists. On the other, the leftist Antifa lunatics.

There was one problem, though, this time around.

LEVY — Unprovoked attack on media by protester new reality

We’d been interviewing, or at least trying to interview a few of the protesters from behind their scarves and were enduring shouts of “Sue-Ann Levy is a racist,” and the like from the mob. We were just trying to do our jobs.

A tall well-muscled man suddenly pushed through the crowd and lunged at Behal, hitting, grabbing his arm then snatching his hat off his head, as my colleague struggled to hold onto his camera equipment.

I watched — almost next to Behal — as at least 12 cops looked on and did nothing. I repeat, they did nothing.

Will they EVER learn? WaPo’s coverage of Charlottesville is EXACTLY why Trump supporters dislike the media

A story can be told in many different ways.

The Washington Post decided to tell the story of last night’s developments in Charlottesville, Va. with undertones of “overpolicing” and provocation.

NBC Reporter Documents Antifa-Led Charlottesville Protests — And Then They Turn On Him

NBC reporter Cal Perry went to Charlottesville, Virginia, to document protests ahead of Sunday night’s planned “Unite the Right” rally — and in spite of the fact that white supremacists had not yet arrived on the scene, approximately 200 Antifa-led protesters soon turned on the police and reporters.

Antifa Plans Violence For August 12 In DC And Across The Country

On the Antifa group shutitdowndc website, we see a number of statements which tells us they are not only planning more violence and/or vandalism, but are planning for members to be arrested. They list groups associated with counter-protesting the Unite the Right 2 rally in DC, which include Black Lives Matter, resistance groups, anarchists, socialists, feminists, and a number of groups with Antifa in their names.

LEVY: Masked Antifa “anti-hate” demonstrators show no love at Toronto rally

They claimed to be protesting at Nathan Phillips Square on a sizzling Saturday afternoon to “stop the hate” of anti-Islamic groups.

But as it became clear to the unruly, uninformed, unwashed, and likely unemployed group of professional protesters that the target of their anger was not showing up, they turned their hate towards the police and the media, most particularly the Toronto Sun.
