Antifa Truth – A Legacy of International Terror – Expose’
by Dr. Steven Clark Bradley PHD | Contributor | Eternal Affairs Media
As enormous protests, after the heinous death of George Floyd,continue to assault the United States, President Donald J. Trump announced, on Sunday, that he intended to go on the offensive, against the far-left group, Antifa. In his address to the nation, President Trump, very appropriately, declared that, “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a domestic terrorist organization.” President Trump has correctly labeled Antifa as a terrorist group, in the past, and he was right then too. President Trump is not alone in his condemnation of Antifa. Other conservative politicians have also criticized the group, of whom, Texas Senator Ted Cruz has spoken out forcefully against the fascist-anti-fascist group dedicated to mayhem.
One should be shocked, by the response from the Democrat-Socialist Party. However, quite predictably, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the rest of Antifa’s fellow domestic terrorists, in the radical Democrat Party, accused President Trump of fomenting division because he intends to end the possibly fatal riots being perpetrated by Antifa’s thugs, by any means necessary.
ANTIFA: The Terrorist Group
Antifa’s militancy was on full display last June, in 2019, in Portland, Oregon, when Antifa fought with a right-wing group called ‘Proud Boys’. The violence left members, of both sides, attacked and seriously injured, with a conservative journalist hospitalized for his conservative views.
Though it may be true that President Trump does not have the authority to declare Antifa as a ‘domestic’ terrorist group, it is clear that this radically militant group is more than just an American phenomenon. Consequently, that the right approach is to declare Antifa as an ‘international’ militant enemy combatant group, against the United States of America.
Antifa is actually an international movement, which has been around, for several decades. Though accounts differ, on Antifa’s exact origin, Merriam-Webster reveals that Antifa’s organizational presence goes back as far as in Nazi Germany. Records are available that describe the German term ‘antifaschistische’, which means, ‘anti-fascist’, and organized Antifa, as front organization that was formed by the German Communist Party, in 1932, to oppose Nazism. So, from its origin, Antifa has been a radical Marxist militant political group that sought to counter an opposing radical militant political group, called the Nazis. Explicitly, Antifa has had an international presence, in numerous European countries, for decades. Antifa came into view, in the United States, only in recent years.
Antifa does not have an official organizational body, neither do they have clearly defined goals, except one; the destruction of the government of the United States of America. Antifa’s seeming lack of organization is one argument that opponents of the designation of Antifa, as a domestic terrorist organization, employ to state that President Trump has no authority to declare them as domestic terrorists. Nevertheless, it is clear that disconnected Antifa groups have the same goals, the same intentions, the same purpose and desire the same outcomes. It is also clear that Antifa is not as disorganized and dysfunctional as they portray. The present state of bedlam, in streets, throughout America, and Antifa’s vast presence and their organized armed groups, in the melee is proof enough of that their ability to form, organize and attack is anything but disorganized crime.
The New York Times, and other left-wing and right-wing media groups, which have researched Antifa’s growth and presence, have discovered what we already knew was true. Antifa recruits its supporters from other radical political movements, such as Black Lives Matter and the Occupy movement.
Antifa has been known to have a presence, in the United States, since the 1980s. It rose to recognition, after the election of President Trump, in 2016, with violence marking all of its protests and demonstrations, in such places as Chicago, where they literally shut down a rally and invaded the event and tore the place apart. Antifa even had a large and violent presence, in Washington DC, on the very day that Donald J. Trump was inaugurated.
What is Antifa?
The name, for the anarchist terrorist group, Antifa, is supposed to mean it is a group that stands against fascism. Yet, it is clear that Antifa is not anti-fascist but is anti-authority and anarchist, in all its views and forms, and that, itself is a fascist organization. Antifa’s self-described organizational purpose of opposing fascism is like the anarchist pot calling the kettle fascist. The term had been always used describe broad groups of people, who held political views that were out on the far left-wing fringes, that, in the past, even opposed by the Democratic Party, itself. That is no longer the case in the Democrat Party.
Today, with the election of radical, openly socialist, democrats, such as Bernie Sanders, of Vermont, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Antifa has a strong base of support, in the Democrat Party, which never officially existed before. This new socialist base, which has totally overtaken the now Democrat-Socialist Party, has breathed life into such groups as Antifa, Black Lives Matter and the Occupy Movement.
Antifa does not have a designated leader or command center, although groups in certain states hold regular meetings. Antifa has only one position, for their existence, and their terrorist action, and it is destruction of all that has made us the greatest nation, in the history of the world. They like to use the downtrodden and offer their false support, of oppressed populations and protest, what they view, as the amassing of wealth by corporations and elites. In fact, they are very similar to the modern-day Socialist-based Democrat Party itself. Antifa employs extreme, radical and militant tactics, exactly as we see being done, throughout America, right now. They have no message except, destroy the State.
The radical views that drive Antifa’s violence and murder are far more acceptable, to the Democrat Part of today, and even Antifa-inspired policies are called for, by the by Socialist-liberals, who have taken over the Democrat Party. Democrats would never have considered such ideals before, because they also viewed Antifa as the enemy, as much as the right-wingers still do today.
Since the election of ‘Law and Order’ President, Donald J. Trump, more young voters, than one cares to admit, have become Antifa members and have become radicalized. It is logical to declare Antifa as a terrorist organization because they use the same tactics, same outreach methods and radicalize their members, in the same fashion as radical Islamic groups, such as ISIS uses, to make calm young men and women into vicious and lethal killers.
The Origins of Antifa
It is unclear where and when the Antifa Terrorists formed a unified group. Yet, Antifa’s international existence can be found, all the way back to Nazi Germany. When Hitler was solidifying his racist grasp, on the German State, there are many examples of disorganized anti-Fascist Action, which was largely stomped out, as the Nazis eventually took over every area of the government and society. There should be a huge distinction drawn between what we see, in Antifa today, and what was done, by the anti-Fascist, disorganized groups, in Nazi Germany. Those groups did not attack the German people but focused their action on seeking to destroy the Nazis. Today, Antifa demonstrates nothing that reflects any hatred of fascism, and, in fact, they appear more fascist than the ones they denounce and attack, as being radical right-wingers and white supremacists.
Antifa’s international links, and the legal capacity of designating Antifa, as an ‘international’ terrorist organization, can be easily shown, by their militant groups that were formed, in the United Kingdom, in the 1980s. Today, Antifa adherents have become increasingly radicalized and have made their violent presence known at various public rallies that have all been, in support of and in connection with liberal and progressive Democrat Party-based activities.
Director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, Brian Levin stated, “What they’re trying to do now is not only become prominent, through violence, at high-profile rallies, but also to reach out through small meetings and through social networking to cultivate disenfranchised progressives, who heretofore, were peaceful.”
What Venues does Antifa Prefer to Violently Disrupt?
Antifa members have been unquestionably present, at almost every conservative event, throughout the nation. This has also seen a far more radical bent in their aggressive and violent actions, since Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States, in 2016. In August 2017, Antifa was present, in force, in the counter protest of hundreds of supposed white nationalists, at a protest to denounce racism was organized to remove a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee, in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The protests became very violent and James Fields, drove his car through a crowd of protesters, killing one protester. Though it was widely stated that James Fields was not a member of Antifa, there is no doubt that Antifa was responsible for the violence and that they used the terrible events, of that day, to their own benefit and turned it into exactly the type of situation they desired.
It is easy to spot Antifa thugs. They usually outfit in black and often port a mask at all their violent demonstrations, and follow far-left ideologies, which, frightfully, are most of the same policies now proposed and insisted upon by the modern-day Democrat Party. Antifa takes full advantage, of the work done to indoctrinate America’s young people, to hate capitalism, by their liberal teachers in schools, across America. They very openly espouse their love of Socialism and Marxism.
In reality, because they believe, fundamentally, the same things, as Democrat liberals-Socialists, already in power in the US Government, the only uniquely significant difference between Antifa and the Democrat Party is the violence, which makes Antifa
stand out. Therefore, Antifa represents the Democrats’ equivalent of Hitler’s ‘Brown-Shirts’, that was the violent force that drove out, brutalized, terrorized and killed those who opposed Hitler’s racist party and eventual regime. Be not deceived, Antifa is now a growing and significant arm, of the Democrat Party.
It is clear and shameful that Antifa’s allies, the liberal politicians that make up the Democrat Party, have done virtually nothing to stop Antifa, and have only given the international terrorist organization a wider corridor, for violent acts, for which they will do nothing to stop them. Antifa knows that they risk nothing and nothing will be done, by their allied Democrats, and no price will need to be paid for those they have attacked and killed. Antifa members have constantly physically threatened and actually both physically and fatally attacked their conservative opponents, on their bloodied streets. As we see right now, in the totally out of control George Floyd riots, they blend their bloody hordes into the various peaceful groups of protesters and strategically place their violent infiltrators, who turn legitimate protests into destructive and deadly riots.
Reports have shown that buses and other vehicles have been found full of Molotov cocktails, bricks, stones and other weapons, which Antifa distributes to protesters, and even pays them to spread violent hatred throughout the nation. How is it possible that Liberal Democrats can refuse to designate Antifa thugs as enemies of the state and as terrorists, domestic or international? Democrats resist such a designation, for Antifa because, they know that this group of America-haters is a solid group of Left-wing, Socialist allies for them. Also, if Antifa is such a strong partner, for the Democrats, and if Antifa is regarded as a terrorist group, which is dedicated to the destruction of the rule of law and the republic itself, then should not the Democrat Party also be so designated?
Antifa’s Recent Deadly Actions
Antifa members, according to what we read in the media, is nothing more than a loose association of radical left-wing activists that simply oppose right-wing groups and white supremacists. There is no doubt, at all, that white or black supremacists are always wrong because no one has any supremacy over anyone else. Yet, many white people, who simply are conservative and nothing close to a supremacist, are grouped together with those who are indeed racist.
The media is responsible for assisting Antifa and Black Lives Matter, through their irresponsible reporting, which Antifa uses, as reason enough, to violently attack anyone, who does not espouse to their own brand of racism and treason. The media regularly issues reports that make Antifa appear not to have any organized plans and that they never have any type of uniform participation, in the fires, bombs, beatings and death, just like they are engaged in right now on streets, throughout America now.
It is not difficult to demonstrate, just how many active Antifa supporters are present and active, in one radical action after another. In 2017, Antifa made a huge demonstration, of their violent tactics, and exacerbated the already violent action in Charlottesville, Virginia, after an equally aggressive demonstration, by right-wing radicals. Also, in 2017, Antifa was called out for disrupting a conservative and patriotic conference, at the University of California at Berkeley.
Again, in 2017, Antifa opposed and engaged in breaking university property and smashing windows because alt-right political activist, Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak at the University of California, in Berkeley. Antifa caused widespread damage to property during their protests, in Berkeley, where black-clad terrorists, with mask-covered faces hurled Molotov cocktails and shattered windows, at the Student Union Center, where Yiannopoulos was supposed to speak.
Antifa also protested President Trump’s inauguration, in 2017. Antifa sought to disrupt the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump and actually set a limousine ablaze, on the streets, where the newly inaugurated president was having his inauguration-day parade. The New York Times reported that, in 2016, a member of Antifa punched a right-wing leader on camera, with no repercussions, at all.
It is actually not difficult to recognize who the Antifa terrorists are and who are not, in the protests that devolve, into riots, whenever Antifa arrives. Antifa activists have a name for their black-clad terrorists. They call their violent and murderous thugs the “Black Bloc.” Because they all wear black masks and black uniforms that seem like a uniform, in the same manner, as Hitler’s Brown-Shirts ported. In fact, Antifa is more cowardly than Hitler’s Brown-shirts were. Antifa America-haters cover their faces to keep their identities hidden from the police and those they beat, and from the families of those they kill.
Even many liberal leaders have now begun to criticize Antifa, because they carry out their chaos, in the name of radical liberal causes. Noam Chomsky, a radical left-wing writer and social commentator, has called Antifa, “a major gift to the right”. Though it is rarely pointed out, almost every reform that has become law, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the end of formal racial segregation, and the Voting Rights act, were accomplished, not by violent riots and attacks against life and property but by sacrificial acts of non-violent civil disobedience, over many years.
Why Antifa Must Be Destroyed
Some of Antifa’s members have been seeking to overthrow the US Government for more than 30 years. Antifa purports that the use violence is a legitimate and necessary manner of self-defense, and they also tell their members that the destruction of property is not violence. That is easy to say and believe, when it is not their property being destroyed.
Ask yourself, America. Do you want a world, where the disgruntled and even the truly abused believe that acts of violence are appropriate to bring about change, in the form they believe is needed? Is that a world that you want to leave to your children? Is it a world or a nation that is worth sacrificing oneself for? Are we prepared to let such violent mobs run roughshod over the laws and principles we believe are right, in our country? If your answer is ‘No’, and I pray to God that it is, then, we must be determined and ready to push back, against the forces of bedlam and pandemonium.
Antifa militants believe that they must take part in violence, since it is the privileged who control all the levers of government and the media. By destroying whole communities, by beating those who disagree with them, by setting whole cities ablaze, Antifa believes they can make a direct and powerful statement bluntly, in opposition to those they firmly believe are racist. Antifa claims that they believe in tolerance, while they threaten those who have different political views than they do.
Therefore, to all radical leftist, Democrat Socialist, though it may well be beyond the president’s authority to declare Antifa as a ‘domestic’ terrorist organization, because Antifa’s history goes back, all the way to WWII, and because Antifa has their origins as far back as Nazi Germany and have active, vicious cells, to this day, throughout Europe and America. It is logical that Antifa should be designated as an international terrorist organization, just as Al-Qaida or ISIS are.
After everything that Antifa has done to destroy property and to commit physical injury and death, it is supreme insanity that any Democrat leader could ever be against declaring what Antifa truly is; a terrorist organization that is consecrated to the goal of bringing America’s constitutionally-established government to a violent end. Yet, alas, the Democrat Party’s liberal tolerance of a treasonous and vicious enemy of freedom, like Antifa, should not astonish us, who love the nation and the US Constitution that established it. For, like Antifa, the Democrat Socialist-controlled Party is devoted to the very same destructive aim, America.
To all of our lethargic and treacherous leaders, who still call this a legitimate protest, do you really think this destruction, murder and hatred is what the founding fathers envisioned, as a human right, for our society? Does this mean that every time we disagree, we have the right to burn down the whole of American society? When you die, do you want to be remembered by someone burning car, breaking a window or slaying a stranger, in memory of you? We want our cities to be safe. We want our children to grow up in a society that believes in God and country.
PRESIDENT TRUMP ADDRESSED THE NATION AND PLEDGED TO STOP THE ANTIFA HOODLUMS FROM ATTACKING OUR NATION.
President Trump vowed to step in and use federal resources to end the riots. President Trump’s speech and stated determination to stop this horror show is exactly what was needed. His determination to send in the US Military, unless the liberal governors step up and end the mayhem, is the right answer and the only one!
Take these hoodlums, these thugs, these terrorist and arrest them or kill them and rid the nation of the wretched vermin, who are using a tragedy to engage in their premeditated and fully developed plan to destroy the United States of America. These are enemy combatants and must be treated as such! President Trump said of the treasonous riots, “These are not acts of peaceful protest,” “These are acts of domestic terror.”
President Trump’s fearless march, with a copy of God’s word, the bible, in hand, to the historic ‘Presidents’ Church’, St. Johns, which was burned two days before, by Antifa, and their godless hordes, was a very powerful symbol, by a very powerful president. President Trump was declaring to Antifa, you cannot have our streets, our parks, our property or our blood. we will no longer permit such lawless scum to continue to spread their godless terror!
We must stop this grave national emergency or we will have fulfilled the old phrase, used by those who have always hated America, that no outside power will destroy America but unless we stop it, by any means necessary, America will be destroyed and die from within.
