Here's another real head scratcher for you. At the supposedly peaceful rally this weekend in Charlottesville, marking the one-year anniversary of last year's tragic disaster, Antifa members made a show of force, chanting, "All cops are racist," "cops and the Klan go hand-in-hand," and "last year they came with torches, this year they come with badges."
Naturally, they did so under the protection of the police.
The Charlottesville protests—or "counter-protests," as the mainstream media describes them—were supposedly a defiant opposition to this weekend's Unite the Right Rally in Washington D.C., which Vox described thusly:
After last year's disaster in Charlottesville, very few white nationalists showed up to the follow-up rally in Washington, DC.
Isn't that a good thing? How is that a disaster?
While the D.C. rally was largely a pathetic gathering, Antifa made sure to keep hatred alive in Charlottesville. Footage emerged of Antifa protestors assaulting reporters. Lots of footage. We can't play most of it because there's so much profanity. And not just little league profanity. Stuff that nobody should be saying, some of it at odds with the so-called "progressive" approach of Antifa.
Antifa demand their message be heard. But they're oddly aggressive any time the media arrives to document them. The truly confounding part of it all is that the media seems incapable of reporting the facts—for one, they call them "counter-protestors," which is a brilliant use of passive voice logic, so that Antifa are always the ones acted upon, never the aggressors, which we all know is patently false.
The sickness that is ANTIFA is gaining power.
They seem unable to admit that Antifa and leftist groups like it are hate-spewing, violence-driven threats to democracy. They are cancerous. Their ultimate aim is to overthrow America itself. They hate police, they hate capitalism, they hate America, and, odds are, they hate you. Yet the media portrays them with the misguided fondness of a clueless parent. We'll go into many of these ideas in greater detail (later today or tomorrow).
But for now, I'll say that the sickness that is Antifa is gaining power. And we need to do something about it. Who knows who they're coming for next.
