So, anti-fascism is bad, yet anti-government is good?
Hence, a group that is against fascism is bad, but people who want to kill police officers, kidnap governors, start a race war, or Civil War and overthrow the government, are “very good people” as Trump proclaimed?
Well, Trump is using ANTIFA as the bogeyman to distract from all of the violence that has been committed during his presidency by white supremacists, nationalists, and anti-government, racist, hate groups, his tacit endorsement has led to him becoming their de facto leader.
The problem with hate is you can’t control it. These racist, anti-Semitic, xenophobic, misogynistic, white supremacy, nationalistic cowards hate anyone who is not like them.
That means they don’t care if you are Republican, Democrat, Independent, Black, White, Jewish, Asian, Hispanic, Indian, Native American, gay, straight, transgender, rich, poor, a politician, or a police officer, they will kill anyone without remorse who is not a part of their group or movement.
When Timothy McVeigh blew up the Federal building in Oklahoma City, he killed 168 people, injured 680, including 19 children who were in a daycare on the 2nd floor.
Domestic terrorists don’t discriminate about who they kill. Their goal is to terrorize, strike fear, and hold on to their mythical view of superiority. The sky is falling folks. These people are dangerous and deadly.
If you are a white Republican who lives in the suburbs and is out protesting in a Black Lives Matter protest, you are fair game. If you are a Jewish rabbi or a clergyman who helps minorities, you’re fair game. If you are a state, city, county, or federal law enforcement officer, you too are fair game.
ANTIFA is an ideological movement against fascism. It has no leader. There is no command structure. There are no training sites. They are not an armed militia.
FASCISM is defined as a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition, and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc. And, emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.
Not all Trump supporters are racist and nationalistic, white supremacists. But all racist, nationalistic, white supremacists are Trump supporters.
We are a democracy. So standing up for our democratic values, and the rights and liberties that are granted to us by the US Constitution is not incongruent with being anti-fascist. Technically, being against an anti-fascist group means you are pro-fascism.
Trump and his rhetoric have consequences. In 2019, the third year of the Trump presidency, data gathered by the Intelligence Project of the Southern Poverty Law Center documents a continued and rising threat to inclusive democracy.
A surging white nationalist movement that has been linked to a series of racist and antisemitic terror attacks that have coincided with an increase in hate crime is the number one domestic terror threat according to the FBI.
The number of white nationalist groups identified by the SPLC rose for the second straight year, a 55 percent increase since 2017, when Donald Trump’s campaign energized white nationalists who saw him as an avatar of their grievances and their anxiety over the country’s demographic changes.
On April 17th, Trump tweeted ‘LIBERATE MICHIGAN’. That set off a chain reaction that led to protesters who stormed the state capital who later formed a group and recruited members during those protests in order to kidnap the governor of Michigan. And try her for treason. They equated the lockdown she implemented to slavery.
On May 14th, Heavily Armed Protesters Gathered Again At Michigan Capitol To Decry Stay-At-Home Order For The Third Time.
Despite heavy rain, armed protesters gathered at the State Capitol in what the organizing group, Michigan United for Liberty, has branded “judgment day.”
That was when armed protesters brought signs that compared Governor Gretchen Whitmer to Adolf Hitler, showed nooses and Confederate flags. Some signs read, “Tyrants Get The Rope.”
Trump tweets support for Michigan protesters, on May 1st, Trump sided with protesters — some of whom were armed — in Michigan.
“The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire,” Trump wrote. “These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal.” I thought it was our national security policy NOT to negotiate with terrorists, foreign or domestic?
A federal lawsuit says the Boogaloo Bois put out a “call to arms” on Facebook to encourage violence against people protesting the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
The filing says 17 years old, Kyle Rittenhouse, “under the tactical supervision” of defendant Ryan Balch, an “avowed member of the Boogaloo Bois,” then “shot and killed two protestors with his assault rifle.”
An officer was gunned down. The killer was a ‘boogaloo boy’ using nearby peaceful protests as cover, feds say.
As protests gripped Oakland on May 29th, a white van pulled up outside a federal courthouse. A door slid open, and a man peppered the two security officers outside with bullets, killing one and wounding the other.
Air Force Staff Sgt. Steven Carrillo, 32, was an adherent of the “boogaloo boys,” a growing online extremist movement that has sought to use peaceful protests against police brutality to spread fringe views and ignite a race war.
13 men were charged with conspiring to kidnap Whitmer.
More than a dozen people with ties to the Wolverine Watchmen militia group are accused in connection to a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
The group is also said to have purchased an 800,000 volt, high-voltage Taser and night goggles for use in the kidnapping. They used coded language and encrypted messages to throw off police.
They wanted the deed done before the Nov. 3 election. One of the accused described the plans as, “Snatch and grab, man. Grab the f—-n governor. Just grab the b—-. Because at that point, we do that dude, it’s over,” court records showed.
Once kidnapped, the plan was to move Whitmer to a “secure location” in Wisconsin for “trial,” according to the affidavit.
The militia groups involved in the plot against Whitmer are hate groups, Whitmer said, and they took Trump’s words to heart. “Hate groups heard the president’s words not as a rebuke, but as a rallying cry – as a call to action,” she said. “When our leaders speak, their words matter. They carry weight.”
Authorities say Joseph Morrison and Pete Musico are Wolverine Watchmen’s founding members. Morrison is considered the “Commander” and is known online as “Boogaloo Bunyan.”
State officials also charged seven different men in connection to related activities of the Wolverine Watchmen, a militia group accused of attempting to commit several crimes, including kidnapping public officials.
The group held field exercises and began training this year. They also conducted surveillance of the governor’s vacation home on at least two occasions in late August and September, according to the affidavit.
Members also discussed detonating a bomb to distract law enforcement, tested one explosive, and one individual inspected the underside of a highway bridge for possible placement, U.S. Attorney Andrew Birge said.
The leader, Adam Fox “said he needed ‘200 men’ to storm the Capitol building in Lansing, Michigan, and take hostages, including the Governor. [He] explained they would try the Governor of Michigan for ‘treason,’ and he said they would execute the plan before the November 2020 elections.”
After that moment that was seen by 84 million people all around the world, when Trump told the Proud Boys to “stand back and standby” during the debate, the Proud Boys celebrated their orders from their secret commander.
They printed up a new logo with the word stand back and standby on it. They made T-shirts. They launched a recruiting drive. And the leader of Proud Boys, who also leads the grassroots group ‘Latinos for Trump’, tweeted “Proud Boys standing by, Sir.”
While Trump stumbled over his words –refusing to condemn the radical far-right group, the Proud Boys, known for endorsing violence at protests across the country, members of the self-described, “pro-Western fraternal organization for men,” celebrated, according to The New York Times.
The group has been tied to several violent protests that have erupted across the country, including most recently at a rally organized in Portland, which led Gov. Kate Brown to declare a state of emergency.
Members of the far-right group immediately began posting to social media, calling the president’s comments “historic.”
In one specific message on Telegram, a poster called the comment a tacit endorsement of violent tactics, the Times wrote. One message reportedly said that the group was already seeing a spike in “new recruits.”
So you tell me which groups are more dangerous to our democracy and the American way of life? The Proud Boys, the Boogaloo Bois, and other white supremacist militia‘s who are training in the hills of Wisconsin and Michigan for a Civil War to overthrow the government and for a race war to kill minorities or ANTIFA?
