It’s been over three years since the FBI and the Department of Homeland security referred to the radical leftist Antifa movement’s behavior as that of a “domestic terrorist” organization, but that hasn’t stopped CNN from promoting their activities. Just days after CNN host Chris Cuomo argued that Antifa was a “true” and “good cause,” social justice warrior Kamau Bell on Sunday’s United Shades of America offered a national platform to an Antifa member while offering no pushback against their violent tactics.
Radical German Antifa website Indymedia published detailed instructions for assassinating specific AfD politicians (Alternative for Germany,) a far right-wing party in Germany. The post targets politicians as part of the 2019 Euro election campaign.
The event dubbed “Rock Stone Mountain” had been planned for months and was expected to attract white nationalist activists, but was cancelled right before taking place. The antifa coalition, which donned the name FLOWER (“Frontline organizations working together to end racism”) stuck with their original plan to assemble outside the park.
A huge proportion of the American population gave a vote of confidence to a President whose policies include locking migrant children in cages, banning Muslims from the country, and denying the existence of climate change. The results also showed a continuing political polarisation from which a new left is emerging. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was the most prominent successful candidate backed by the Democratic Socialists of America, but she was not the only one.
Reacting to a tweet via Mother Jones’ Ari Berman, in which he accused Republicans of being “terrified of free and fair elections,” Michael Moore said: “It has to feel awful knowing that your side is outnumbered by the millions and the only way you can hang on to any power is to simply rig it/steal it/prevent black people from voting. That is the work of cowards.”
It’s worse than you might think.
Yglesias announced on Twitter Thursday morning that he “honestly cannot empathize with Tucker Carlson’s wife” after members of Antifa swarmed her home and cracked the front door Wednesday night.
There seems to be no limit to the offenses allowed certain antifa groups on Twitter and Facebook. SmashRacism DC, an antifa group in the Washington D.C. area, threatened Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson and his wife and 4 children on November 7, 2018. In a now-deleted Twitter post, SmashRacism posted, “Each night you remind us that we are not safe. Tonight we remind you that you are not safe either.”While the posts are gone, SmashRacism DC is still active on Facebook and Instagram.
A self-described left-wing Antifa group posted videos of a mob outside the Washington, D.C., home of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Wednesday evening, chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.”
The now-deleted video was posted on social media by Smash Racism, D.C. The same group made headlines in September after activists confronted Sen.Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife inside a restaurant during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
The incoming Democratic majority in the House of Representatives has the power to open a slew of investigations into the White House and President Trump when the new Congress is seated in January, and early indications are that Democrats plan to aggressively take advantage of their new authority.
Last Friday an unruly mob of protesters greeted well-heeled Munk Debate attendees with hostility as they lined up to enter Roy Thompson Hall to watch the debate between two intellectual heavyweights. Toronto-born American conservative pundit David Frum faced-off against former Trump White House chief strategist and co-founder of conservative firebrand news website Breitbart Steve Bannon. The motion argued: “Be it resolved, the future of western politics is populist, not liberal…”
Google Ads, an online advertising platform, would not allow the Tennessee GOP to promote two videos for Blackburn’s Senate campaign as search ads because the content doesn’t meet Google’s standards, according to an email sent to the Tennessee GOP.
In the wake of the attempting bombing of various Democrats, liberal commentators have rightly called for the dialing down of divisive rhetoric. However, they have refused to lead by example, instead repeatedly demonizing President Donald Trump in the most radical terms.
While Democrats spend their last few weeks before the 2018 mid-term elections bashing Republicans and painting conservatives as “dangerous” and blaming them for tragic events that happen across the country, the real danger is in their own words and actions.
On Tuesday night, CNN’s Don Lemon urged people to stop demonizing “any one group or any one ethnicity” and, in the very same breath, stigmatized “white men … radicalized to the right” as “the biggest terror threat in this country.” So, conservative white men are not “any one group or any one ethnicity”? Oh, right, according to “intersectionality,” we’re not people!
