Citing Wikipedia Antifa is: “The Antifa (/ænˈtiːfə, ˈæntiˌfɑː/) movement is a conglomeration of left-wing autonomous, militant anti-fascist groups in the United States. The principal feature of antifa groups is their use of direct action, with conflicts occurring both online and in real life. They engage in varied protest tactics, which include digital activism, property damage, physical violence, and harassment against those whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right.
Activists involved in the movement tend to be anti-capitalists and subscribe to a range of ideologies, typically on the left. They include anarchists, socialists and communists along with some liberals and social democrats. Their stated focus is on fighting far-right and white supremacist ideologies directly, rather than through electoral means.”
It’s amazing that they’re defined as an “anti fascist” organization when they’re fascists themselves. What an irony.
It’s clear that just like the KKK in the 19th & 20th century used terror tactics against Black people, Antifa, a fascist organization made headlines by attacking, what they’ve termed, a “gay conservative journalist.”
The left, in people and politics, is definitely out of control.
Ted Wheeler, Democratic mayor of Portland, Oregon, did not use the power of his office to use the Portland, Oregon police to restrain Antifa.
The mayor should have articulated to them and others a “no tolerance” for breaking the law policy.
We don’t know if an order was given to “stand down.”
But we know that something may have allegedly been communicated to prohibit the police from carrying out their law enforcement duties to protect life and property.
I remember some of the pictures from the street on Broadway in uptown Brooklyn, NY when a black out occurred, sadly our Black people looted the many stores that made Broadway, Broadway. After the self inflicted destruction and looting, for over 30 years, those building and businesses never returned.
The people weren’t restrained and very little arrests, and protection of property took place.
When you do not address the problem, everyone suffers.
This is what happens when lawlessness becomes the law.
Peaceful reasonable protests within the law, is not a problem.
Any outbursts would quickly bring all parties involved to the bench of justice.
Antifa is known to commit violent acts and destroy property. Just this basic intelligence alone, should have been enough to deploy adequate police support to deter Antifa’s aggressive actions. Massive police action should have been prepared. Develop layers of perimeters. Establish designated “no go” areas for Antifa. Any acts of violence should have been swiftly dealt with, quickly deterring and subduing Antifa, including making reasonable arrests.
You’re not going to completely control what Antifa would do to circumvent these basic police policies. But if you’re the mayor of a city, you want to do everything that’s necessary to protect life and property.
As long as there’s a refusal to protect life and property, Antifa and any other organization bent on destroying life and property will have license.
If you show that you’re not serious about quickly and effectively exercising common sense policing against Antifa and other organizations, more people and property will be destroyed.
Baltimore is proof of this.
You don’t let them “blow off steam.”
And it will cost us all more in tax dollars to repair the damage done.
MSM like CNN (Don Lemon), ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and other left wing leaning media pundits defend Antifa.
It’s clear that until these media outlets condemn Antifa, they’re co-conspirators of violence against Americans.
So far, we haven’t seen Antifa confront the people that they’re claiming to be after. Extreme right wing or more explicitly, KKK, White nationalists, Neo Nazis, and other such organizations. They won’t go down to Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, or other places where these militias are.
There’s a reason.
Antifa would be stomped to death.
I’m not an advocate nor supportive of any acts of violence.
If you’re a true American, the moral rule of law is what we live by, and we take causes to the voting booth in a peaceful non violent manner. Protests that pivots towards violence against another person is lawless.
Now to my point.
Could it be possible that homosexuals are now enemies of Antifa?
I don’t think so, but satan casting out satan is a valid point.
In other words, the Democratic house that fights against itself cannot stand.
Even Nancy Pelosi is in the crosshairs of the Democratic moderate and extreme left wing people of her party. She’s experiencing a political battle within her party instead of driving that energy against the Republicans.
Face value, they talk like they’re unified but behind the scenes, a coup could be happening. I might be wrong about this.
Now this homosexual is a well known, targeted conservative journalist.
This means that essentially, no one is safe.
Hurricanes are indiscriminate.
Hurricanes care less about what’s in its path.
Tornados are the same.
It swirls indiscriminately and leaves a trail of destruction, injury, and death.
When you have a mayor that refuses to take control of a situation, no one is protected. And these same Democrats want to disarm legal, law abiding people?
Should Antifa choose to arm themselves, what would the Portland, Oregon police do?
Let them get away with violent assault? Murder?
Here’s another thing.
Distractions. Distractions. Distractions.
Violence and political unrest.
BTW, have we heard from the Democratic candidates for president condemning this?
Maybe they did and we haven’t heard, or MSM isn’t reporting it so it continues to tear up the city.
Already, the same Democrats are blaming Trump for the political climate. Blaming Trump for Antifa. Now there’s a difference of opinion when White supremacists acted in the south and Trump didn’t condemn them to the Democrats’ satisfaction.
No side is safe except being on the side of the Lord.
Bad and evil is everywhere except where the righteous are.
If we that believe the Lord and the Word of God aren’t careful, we will find ourselves putting our Bibles down and side in with evil on any political or social side.
We must remember what Paul said in Ephesians 6:21 that we “wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.”
As Peter said, “Be sober, be vigilant. For your adversary, the devil, walks about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
