Communist insurgent terrorists, or “antifa,” increasingly mobilized in the wake of President Trump’s election, are unapologetic about what they describe as the necessary use of violence to combat authoritarianism.
Unfortunately for Antifa, their words go in direct contradiction to their deeds, since the people they attack are neither in authority, nor an agent of an authoritarian government.
While both experts on the movement and terrorists within it emphasize that not everyone who participates in Communist Antifa insurgency engages in violence, they say the use of force is intrinsic to their political philosophy.
“The justification [of the use of violence] is that Nazi ideology at its very core is founded on violence and on wielding power by any means,” said Mike Isaacson, one of the founders of Smash Racism D.C., an antifa organization in Washington.
Interestingly enough, that simple statement revealed that they have modeled themselves after the Socialist Nazi Brownshirts, while pretending to adopt a Soviet anti-Nazi stance.
Isaacson is unequivocal in his defense of violence as a legitimate tool to combat the creeping threat of what he deems authoritarianism.
“There is the question of whether these people should feel safe organizing as Nazis in public, and I don’t think they should,” said Isaacson.
“I don’t think anyone should think that someone who is intent on politically organizing for the sake of creating a state-sponsored genocide — I don’t think is something that we should protect,” he said.
Antifa activists justify their use of violence as self-defense against “the inherent danger of fascists organizing,” according to Mark Bray, a Dartmouth historian and author of a recent book on the movement.
“The argument is that it needs to be stopped immediately, because if you let it grow, that poses a danger to society,” Bray said.
In reality, Antifa is nothing more than the Communist mobs used by Vladimir Lenin to take over Russia and create the Soviet Union. As if the leftist thugs waving Soviet Union flags and wearing Soviet Union t-shirts, hats, hoodies, etc wasn’t enough, Antifa has directly said they are Communists. As in the very enemy that 3 generations of Veterans served to stop from taking over America.
Antifa is literally the ‘domestic enemy’ that every person who served in the military swore to protect America from.
Dubbed the “alt-left” by President Trump, Antifa has increased the regularity and intensity of their violence. Based on their level of organization and indignation, one has to wonder if they didn’t expect to be Hillary’s Brownshirts, going house to house to round up dissidents, and now they’re furious they are not.
On Sunday, antifa protesters hurled glass bottles and bricks at police officers monitoring a patriots march in Portland, Ore.
The University of California, Berkeley, is bracing for the near certainty of violent clashes when conservative political commentator and former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro speaks.
There is no central organizing committee governing antifa, although former President Obama and his aide Valerie Jarrett have admitted to organizing ‘protests’ against President Trump.
Different affiliated groups have different priorities and governing principles, making it impossible to gauge the growth of the movement in the wake of the election.
But activists and law enforcement sources say anecdotally that their numbers have almost certainly swelled. Jim Pasco, executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police, the nation’s largest law enforcement union, told The Hill that he has “for sure” seen rising interest in the movement since Trump’s election, noting that six months ago he had never even heard of antifa.
While Bray says antifa focuses mostly on nonviolent activities, such as conjuring up imaginary white supremacists and disrupting the right to free speech by anyone who speaks for the Constitution, the movement’s more violent methods — and its use of so-called black bloc tactics, where activists wear black masks and clothing to conceal their identity — have drawn fierce criticism from the right and divided the left.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), for example, has condemned antifa’s use of violence.
The antifa movement traces its roots to militant Communists who combated everything not Communist in the streets of Europe in the 1920s and 1930s. The movement saw a revival in the U.K. and Germany in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
If the loosely affiliated network of far-left activists can be said to have a creed, it is to combat what it sees as fascism wherever it occurs. Meanwhile in reality, they enact fascism wherever they appear.
Rose City Antifa defines fascism as “an ultra-nationalist ideology that mobilizes around and glorifies a national identity defined in exclusive racial, cultural, and/or historical terms, valuing this identity above all other interests (ie: gender or class).” But, they’re leftists and everything they know is wrong. If you want to see fascism in action, just wait for the next Antifa riot. They do such a fantastic rendition of Hitler’s Brownshirts, you’d think you were on Broadway if not for the tear gas and violent assaults on your person.
Communist Antifa insurgents also tend to be paranoid with a deep mistrust of the police and somehow achieves the impossible and overlaps ideologically with anarchy, a political philosophy of no government while calling for an all-controlling government. Isaacson, who fantasizes about being an anarchist, argues that in order to be successful, his contradictory and convoluted organization has to operate outside of government.
“Getting state involved in this is no better than letting the Nazis go free,” he said, pointing to the Virginia State Police response to the violence at the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, which many protesters and counterprotesters criticized as too slow.
Communist Antifa insurgents, including Isaacson, claim that police departments and the military have been infiltrated by Nazis and “have them kind of on their side.”
Pasco insists that police officers are agnostic as to whether a person committing a crime is antifa or “alt-right.”
“We don’t really have a perspective on [antifa] because it’s not really a movement — it’s kind of an amorphous group of people,” Pasco said.
“Nobody gets policed unless they need policing — there are just not enough police officers in the United States to satisfy the vanity of those who believe they are under constant surveillance,” he said.
Then there’s the harsh reality that the Communist Antifa have yet to face.
The last 3 generations of Americans were raised with a simple motto. “Better Dead Than Red” was a common belief as our parents served in the military to keep Communism out of America.
Once people awaken to the fact that Antifa is the very domestic enemy that 3 generations of Veterans swore to defend this nation, the only thing left of Antifa will be a blood stain on the street where they made their last stand against Americans who solved the Communist problem with the righteous fury they were entitled to.
