But more than just purveyors of political violence, Antifa’s thuggish members are also seditious anarchists who are working to destroy the United States or, at a minimum, make it ungovernable.
As reported by The Daily Caller, a recent scheduled, then canceled, anti-Marxism protest in Berkeley, Calif., was opposed by Antifa terrorists who were not only supporting Marxism, they were calling for the end of America:
The Antifa protest was staged as a counter to a “No to Marxism” rally that never happened, but was slated to take place at the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park. Despite the cancellation of the anti-Marxist rally, over 4,000 people — mainly leftists and Antifa members — showed up to protest.
Many of them chanted slogans like “No Trump, no wall, no USA at all.”
In addition, protesters staged another demonstration to “rally against hate” — while hating on their own country.
Some 13 protesters were eventually arrested and charged with various crimes including assault with a deadly weapon and felonious assault — because we can’t have Antifa “protests” without violence, since, you know, the group’s golden rule is to bring political violence where none exists.
Make no mistake, the radical Left, which is working diligently to complete its takeover of the Democratic Party — whose new leaders are Alt-Left whack jobs like Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren — seeks the complete and utter takeover of our country. And like Left-wing Marxist revolutionaries of the past, they will resort to the only method they have for accomplishing that goal: Violence. (Related: FBI, DHS Officially Classify Antifa Activities As “Domestic Terrorist Violence.”)
It’s too easy to simply write off this movement as some fringe extreme. It may have started as one back when Donald J. Trump was launching his ultimately successful bid for the Oval Office, but it has grown in leaps and bounds since.
As usual, Left-wing suspects — in the disgustingly dishonest “mainstream” media, in political circles, in academia, and labor unions — are all stumping for the violent overthrow of any government led by Trump.
Mind you, at least half the country had nothing in common with Trump’s predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama. But conservatives and Right-leaning Americans didn’t form terrorist organizations with the express purpose of committing violence against Obama supporters and to “end the USA.”
But because self-anointed Leftists have ‘decided’ that Trump, just as duly-elected as Obama, is somehow unworthy to hold the office, they have some divine ‘right’ to toss him out and make the country ungovernable (and vulnerable) in the process.
Cripes, these people are even attempting to legitimize their violence by reframing it as “self-defense.”
“I think that a lot of people recognize that when pushed, self-defense is a legitimate response to white supremacist and neo-Nazi violence,” said Antifa chronicler Mark Bray, in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd last month in defense of the organization’s violence at Charlottesville.
We may not have much use for neo-Nazis and white supremacists, but if they want to hold a demonstration — and they have been given a permit by local authorities to do so — you have to let them do so without trying to beat them up. That constitutes a crime.
But of course, Antifa violence has not been limited to Charlottesville. As the FBI and DHS knew more than a year ago, the group’s members have been inflicting violence on Trump supporters for more than a year.
And now they’re doing it in the name of tearing down the country. That constitutes sedition.
Antifa members and their allies say violence is needed to prevent a rise in neo-Nazism and white supremacism. For one thing, there isn’t a “rise” in either ideology, and no amount of claiming Trump supporters are all white supremacists will make it true.
But by that logic, then, don’t patriotic Americans have the right to use violence in “self-defense” of the country, to prevent far-Left anarchists from destroying it?
Leftists are agitating for a new civil war. They should be careful what they ask for.
