Today, we decided to put the word “terror” in this headline because it’s past time we refer to the “anti-fascist” left-wing group for what it really is — a terrorist organization.
This isn’t theoretical at this point. Not long ago, an individual claiming to represent the group attacked a migrant detention center in Tacoma, Washington and exchanged fire with border patrol personnel. He was hailed as a martyr for his actions after he was eventually slain during the conflict.
Does this behavior sound at all familiar? You know, fanatical ideology, acts of violence, and the romanticization of martyrdom? Any of it?
Not surprisingly, this event got little to no attention from the mainstream media. Left-wing commentator Shaun King chimed in for a hot minute, only to delete his tweet praising the terrorist within hours of posting it — undoubtedly recognizing the PR nightmare he would have to wrestle with once the facts came out.
Of course, this wasn’t the first time Antifa participated in or condoned acts of political violence. In fact, it’s the entire reason it exists. Shortly before the incident in Tacoma, a journalist was almost beaten to death by masked Antifa demonstrators in Portland, Oregon. Apparently, Andy Ngo was committing the crime of covering Antifa objectively.
Things are only going to get worse if this terrorist organization is allowed to operate. Here’s Carl Benjamin with the group’s latest plans to commit more acts of terror.
