Chalkboard Lesson: Timeline — the Evolution of Antifa, Post-WWII

In this video excerpt from Glenn’s week-long chalkboard series on ‘antifa,’ Glenn continues with the evolution of anti-fascism after World War II. [To see a clip from Part 1, click here.]

“Antifa groups were generally dormant for the first couple of decades during the cold war,” said Glenn. “But then every thing began to change: it changed with music.”

  • Starting in Britain in the late 1960’s, groups of mostly young white males who identified themselves as “skinheads,” congregated around “counter-cultural” bands like The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, and The Who. Skinheads rebelled against the hippie culture and were often violent toward minorities.

  • In the late 1970’s, skinheads gravitated toward the punk music scene, listening to bands like The Clash, The Ramones, and The Sex Pistols. It was during this time that the often-violent skinhead culture split into two opposing movements: the neo-Nazis and a resurgence of antifa. Also around this same time, violent groups of protesters in Europe starting sporting a style of dress they called “blackblock” to hide their identity behind all black clothing and a mask. Antifa protesters, who at the time opposed the neo-Nazis, adopted the blackblock clothing to avoid arrest and retaliation.

  • During the 1980’s and 90’s, a skinhead sub-culture sprang up across the US. Like their European counterparts, American skinheads had two opposing sides: the neo-Nazis and what started as a group called “Anti-racist Action” but eventually became the American version of antifa.

  • In 2011, antifa launched the Occupy Wall Street movement to rally against a variety of causes including income inequality, the influence of money in politics, and corporate greed….

“Wait a minute. I thought antifa was fighting Nazis and racists,” said Glenn. “Now they are fighting international trade and Wall Street?”

So when did antifa expand their list of oppositions to include, “anything that they deem oppressive including free speech and capitalism?”

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.

How Bill O'Reilly Would've Handled the Hunter Biden Story | Ep 86

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly, dishes with Glenn about his time at Fox News. He explains why he believes he got labeled as "being difficult to work with," what happened when he asked executives if he could moderate a presidential debate, and what the first words he ever said to Glenn were (hint: It was typical O'Reilly). He also reveals how he would've handled the Hunter Biden email story if he were the editor of the New York Post, gives his predictions for the final debate (if it even happens), and imagines what Donald Trump will do if he doesn't win a second term. "He ain't gonna get down to Dallas and paint," O'Reilly says. "He'll probably buy the L.A. Lakers and fire LeBron James!"
