Who is Antifa and what are their origins? According to The Economist, the “word Antifa has its roots in Anti-Fascist Action, a name taken up by European political movements in the 1930s” which was revived in the 1990s, particularly in Germany. Peter Beinart writes that “in the late ’80s, left-wing punk fans in the United States began following suit, though they initially called their group’s Anti-Racist Action, on the theory that Americans would be more familiar with fighting racism than fascism.” Antifa groups are known for militant protest tactics, including property damage and physical violence.”
They started to fight fascist governments in the early 1900’s with tactics they use today, violence. We can understand what they did in Nazi Germany trying to throw Hitler over. However, today they have become a dangerous far leftist group (alt left) trying to squash all freedom of speech with intimidation and violence. In America, they are trying to destroy our very foundation. They are now the fascist they once fought against, funded by socialist, communist groups, many of those who are elected officials, past and present.
So who is behind this group, Scott Crow for one. According to Wikipedia: scott crow (intentionally uncapitalized)(born February 18, 1967) is an American anarchist organizer, speaker, and writer. A longtime activist, he is an advocate for the philosophies and politics of anarchism. In addition to a number of other groups, crow is a co-founder of Common Ground Collective or Common Ground Relief, an anarchist organization formed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. His book Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy and the Common Ground Collectivedetails those efforts.
From 1988-92 he was the singer in an industrial music band called Lesson Seven which had a minor dance club hit with 12″ ‘Radiation' Oak Lawn Records in 1990. The band also toured with Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy on their seminal ‘Hate’ and ‘VIVIsect VI’ tours respectively.
“He has been associated with many regional and national political campaigns and movements since 1985 including animal liberation, radical environmentalism, anti-globalization and worker cooperatives. Beginning in the late 1990s, crow came under broad investigations for political activities by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I) and the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in nine states which continued for almost a decade and included being targeted by the F.B.I. informant Brandon Darby. To date, he has never been charged with any crimes. Over the years, crow has been widely interviewed in various international mainstream and independent media as well as appearing in documentary films. He has often been the target of right-wing media for his views.”
Most of those you see in the news committing violence are paid agitators, who have no ideological beliefs or loyalties, they are thugs and no more! While most of Americans believe in freedom of speech no matter how repulsive; these communist groups do not! They are called freedom fighters by the elite in Hollywood and the left wing news media. Let us not mince words, Antifa are not freedom fighters; they are traitors to the fundamental ideals of America. They are enemies of the Constitution, to the very future of this great nation. They are glorified to be what they are not. They are a danger to every American!
We saw what happened in Charlottesville NC.; it was another example of Antifa showing up to start a fight, as they did and are doing in Berkely. Yes the white nationalist, KKK, are all bad, they also came to fight. I do not give them any credence whatsoever! However, I do not see them going to the lefts protest marches, to their speaking engagements and causing violence or trying to stop anyone from speaking out in colleges who are in opposition to them? These groups do! There is where the danger lies, this cannot and must not be tolerated!
If our mayors or police departments stand by and do nothing while innocent Americans brutally attacked, private property destroyed; they need to be fired and held criminally responsible for negligence. Everyone in this great nation freedom of speech has to be defended, no matter how offensive to one’s beliefs; unless you are screaming out for violence, threatening death to an American President, and causing mayhem.
We need to remind ourselves of the words of Goebbels, “If the enemy had known how weak we were, it would probably have reduced us to jelly…. It would have crushed in blood the very beginning of our work.” Can this statement be applied to the left wing of this nation? Are there not more conservatives who should be looking to crushing the alt-left (by our votes) before they become so powerful it leads to civil war?
What can we say that about the left Antifa of today, who are they affiliated with? Their connection is to the Progressives who are trying to bring this nation to its knees? Such as the Clintons, Obamas, Democratic Party, George Soros, the Communist Party, the left elites in Hollywood, most of the mainstream news media, to name a few.
If we do nothing what will our country look like in another five years? I am not advocating violence at all, I do believe in defending oneself, however. I am saying hit the voting booths, run for office, be vocal, do not stop resisting the left. Spread truth, educate, do not sit and do nothing! I believe the left has a freedom to speak what they want, but they do not have a right to stop anyone one else who does not agree. Such as Hollywood banning anyone from working in their field because they are conservatives.
Anyone who comes against the Constitution of America is a traitor and should be treated as such legally.
MARTIN NIEMÖLLER: “FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE SOCIALISTS…
First, they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Please stand up and speak while you still have the freedom to do so!
