Who or What is ANTIFA?The Truth Behind the Mask

The interesting thing about ANTIFA is that it’s not an organization it is a philosophy and an ideology andANTIFA believes that it’s morally justifiable to attack people simply because you disagree with them politically within and ANTIFA itself there’s a lot of different groups that you’ll find a lot of the members may do it for animal rights or for anti capitalism pro socialism personally when I was in anANTIFA a lot of the activism I did was for animal rights but once they come together in the black bloc and under them behind the black mask they kind of forget all that they go for that common goal of silent scene whatever their opposition at the moment is and oftentimes we’ve seen them silence people simply for political disagreements those who threaten innocent life and property will be arrested detained and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law

this includes anANTIFA and others who are leading instigators of this violence in summer of 2018 I wrote a piece for the Wall Street Journal about the five-week occupation and siege of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Facility in Portland and I wrote very critically of what I saw in addition to the breakdown of law and order in that neighborhood in southwest we saw people affiliated with extreme left-wing movements in Portland like an sefa terrorizing those who lived in that community business owners in those areas I interviewed those who were affected

things became violent when aunt Eva amassed at the SATA Riot pub in Northeast Portland for the after party one of the masked militants a patron from the pub ran from the property directly to me and sprayed me with a chemical that blinded me and burnt my skin on my face from there the following month at the end of June was when I was beaten and robbed in the now infamous incident that was partially captured on video this park right here to the left is where auntie Flo frequently gathers and meets on the 29th of June this whole street had been shut down in an unlawful demonstration by mass down to four militants and their allies with the Democratic socialists of America before I got to the front of the crowd probably right around here because I remember this building with these two iconic sculptures somebody or something hit me hard on the back of my head and knocked me forward and before I could even catch my footing then the punches came from every direction and all I saw were fists and people dressed in black people wearing masks I remember trying to block my face and they just kept hitting in the back of my head and the top of my head when I thought it was over then nuts came this hailstorm of Milkshakes eggs and other hard objects I was drenched head-to-toe was bleeding my earlobe was ripped have my eyes were swelling with blood and I just kept walking thinking at any point police are going to come and help me

they never did the city has had by this point years protests that turn into riots and they still have not learned from any of the mistakes of the past they have not evolved and changed their policing tactics over and over as always what is now a mantra for them that they will not go into intervene because I could incite the mob such senseless acts of anarchy are not exercises of First Amendment rights they are crimes designed to terrify fellow citizens and intimidate

communities there are groups that exploit the opportunity to engage in such crimes as looting we have evidence that anANTIFA and other similar extremist groups have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity first order of businesses you have to cut off the the wellspring where their ideology comes from and it’s coming from the university it’s coming from academic departments our

universities are teaching people totally deranged ideas anti-democratic ideas and it’s not just that they’re far-left ideas they’re ideas that are untethered to reality dealing with race and gender and trans issues for example things that revolve around identity they’re teaching people these ideas they’re not hearing other sides of the coin so they’re all in their little safe spaces they don’t hear anything and then when they do encounter something they’re so brittle he’s a Nazi there’s got to be a Nazi punch him

we got to overthrow the fascists it has to do with the fact that so many college administrators and college campuses that allow ANTIFA to work under their noses we don’t allow entices to recruit on college campuses and we should not allow Antipa to do that either

almost all of them are explicitly involved in it it’s less so universities and it’s more so particular departments within universities we call these grievance studies departments that teach kids kids students to look for

grievances everywhere racial grievances gender grievances any kind of perceived or historical injustice but these are coming from very specific departments the nucleation point would be Women’s Studies Gender Studies anything with the word Studies in it but when you look at it in terms of race or gender and you train people to perennial e think about grievances

they’ve been aggrieved how can we overthrow this this oppression everywhere you create some very unhappy very dyspeptic people who who manifest that through physical violence and silencing others right these are not people these are not open-minded people who like to listen to you and engage ideas the university explicitly states at Portland State University’s women’s studies page the word activist or some variant thereof has found seven times we are creating activist students and what are they what what are the activists were they’re activists to find grievances in literally everything

I don’t really have any strong feelings towards them or against them as a group it’s about the end of some of the individuals that act out in extreme ways especially in regards to like reacting with violence that’s the stuff that I start to kind of get a check on I guess like I agree with their message that like neo-nazi should be stopped but I don’t know if I really agree about violence on one hand I’d say hit the Nazis go for it on another hand I think I would probably want to go on a case-by-case because I get know the context of ANTIFA

to that degree I do have reservations about their methods at times that being said I mean even though mixed feelings about the methods I do stand for what they are talking about and so I do support it’s a very loosely organized group and they have sort of a unique or unusual system of communication and organization there appear to be sources of funding and we are looking into the sources of funding and there you know there is clearly some you know high degree of organization involved at some of these events and and and coordinated tactics that we’re saying and we’re looking into that as well
