The head of Philadelphia’s Antifa thugs has been arrested after he and his comrades attacked Marine Corps reservists near a November 17 “We The People” rally in the City of Brotherly Love.

“Last week, we told you that the Philadelphia Police Department was asking for the public’s help to identify a group of people who allegedly attacked United States Marine Corps reservists in Old City, and now police say they have one suspect in custody: Tom Keenan, who has been associated with Philadelphia’s antifa movement,” said Philadelphia Magazine.

Police allege that Keenan and his masked, black clad ilk physically attacked the Marines before robbing them, calling the “Nazis” and “white supremacists” during the incident.

“He has been charged with two counts each of criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault, terroristic threats, simple assault, and reckless endangerment,” the report said. “Keenan, who was not charged with robbery, was released on bail and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on December 6th.”

In 2007, Keenan was charged with criminal conspiracy, institutional vandalism, resisting arrest, and criminal mischief stemming from a similar incident, according to the report. He agreed to a plea deal including a guilty plea for disorderly conduct in exchange the other charges being dropped.

“We The People” rallies, which have popped up across the country, are celebrations of freedom and American values. They are often targets for halfway thugs like Antifa, who passionately hate America. It shouldn’t be long before the media – which also hates America – begins defending Keenan’s actions.

Antifa Arsonists Vandalize Pro-Trump Truck — THEN TORCH IT (Video)

A man in Vancouver, WA, just north of Portland returned to the bar he had left his truck at the night before to find charred remains of what used to be his Nissan Titan. On the previous night, Johnny MacKay opted to take an UBER home rather than take to the roads under the influence. He left his truck in the parking lot, expecting to drive it back the next day. Except some anti-Trump terrorists got it to first, setting it on fire.

A woman who lives across the street captured video of the truck ablaze at some point during the night.

KPTV reports:

A self-proclaimed supporter of Donald Trump says his pickup was vandalized and set ablaze because of two bumper stickers that endorsed the president.

MacKay says he had been at the bar drinking the night before and decided to take an Uber home, leaving his truck overnight.

“I was coming by this morning just to check it on my way to work and it was gone,” MacKay said.

The burnt truck had severe fire damage, most notably near the engine and within its interior. Its door were charred and the seats were melted.

The fire was reported by several 911 callers around 2:30 a.m. Monday, according to Vancouver Police. Officers say are the fire is suspicious.

“We hear a loud boom, we feel the boom, it shakes our bed,” said Myia Flores, who lives nearby. “Just opening the door and seeing the flames–it was like crazy, it was crazy to see.”

MacKay says he thinks the fire was not only intentional, but an attack on his political beliefs sparked by two Donald Trump stickers he had placed on his bumper. Not only did his truck burn, but someone also spray-painted “Trump” on the left side.

“It’s crazy,” MacKay said. “You watch the news, you see this stuff on television, you see the protests and the damage and stuff, you never think it’s going to happen to you.”

MacKay’s truck has since been towed from the lot. He said he had used the truck to drive for Uber and will now lose some of his income.

He said he has also already contacted his insurance company.

The bar’s owner told FOX 12 he is turning over surveillance video showing the flames to authorities. According to Vancouver Police, a fire marshall is also investigating.

“To destroy somebody else’s property, just because you don’t like how they think or because they have a difference of opinion–it’s absurd,” MacKay said.

Video taken by Flores, along with the full report can be seen on the KPTV website.

 

 

Michael Difensore: Antifa Is a Weak Pathetic MOB That Should Be Arrested.

MICHAEL SAVAGE CALLS ON TRUMP TO ORDER ARREST OF ANTIFA MEMBERS

 

Michael Savage Calls on Trump to Order Arrest of Antifa Members

Homeland Security should “round up the leadership”

Radio host Michael Savage has called on President Trump to direct Homeland Security to arrest prominent members of Antifa, labeling the organization a “domestic terrorist group”.

During an interview with the American Mirror, Savage said the group should be treated like the new Weather Underground.

“I think they have declared themselves to be a terrorist organization,” said Savage, pointing to a story from last month about how Antifa members strategized how they could carry out “ambushes and assassinations” to further their political agenda.

“They’re absolutely a domestic terrorist group, what else would anyone call them?” asked Savage.

He then called for the Department of Homeland Security to “round up the leadership and arrest them,” adding, “what else do you do, wait for them to kill people?”

Savage warned that the left are “in a revolution” and would continue to enact it by “smearing and destroying anyone who stands in their way — first verbally and then physically.”

“They are absolutely on the warpath. There’s very little opposition,” he added, noting that those on the far-left still revere Communist regimes that engaged in mass executions of political enemies.

Savage is known to be close to Trump and has met him privately on several occasions.

As we reported yesterday, stunning video out of Portland shows leftist Antifa thugs trying to block and direct traffic while threatening anyone who disobeys with violence and calling them “white supremacists”.

Another clip shows irate leftists chasing a driver in his vehicle who then gets out to confront the mob.

Marxist Barack Obama Wanted to Create Civilian Militant Groups Like Antifa.

DHS, FBI Warned Obama in April 2016 That Antifa Were Engaging in “Domestic Terrorism”

By M.D. McCormack -September 2, 2017

independentsentinel.com

The FBI and DHS knew about the danger of the violent leftists of Antifa in April 2016 and they warned Barack Obama who did nothing. They informed the former president some of their activities were “domestic terrorist violence.”

Barack Obama knew last year that Antifa are engaging in domestic terrorism.

Anifa, Black Lives Matter, the OWs are all the same communist and anarchist people. Obama did more then nothing, he regaled the people going into the streets as did Hillary and Nancy Pelosi. Loretta Lynch wanted to see blood in the streets if necessary.

Antifa have been toppling or removing statues of American veterans, censoring free speech on college campuses, and otherwise terrorizing innocent fellow Americans at every turn. Everyone to the right of them, including classical liberals, are Nazis, they say.

Those of you who think they just appeared in Charlottesville or Berkeley when President Trump assumed office should know that Obama knew in April, 2016 and the Obama administration was warned about the liberal hate group in April 2016, and did absolutely nothing:

Federal agencies warned of the growing likelihood of lethal violence between left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacists.

Some even classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.”

In previously unreported documents dating back to April 2016 and viewed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and Antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies. They blamed these groups for attacks on police, government and political institutions, racists, fascists and “symbols of capitalism.”

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and Antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies. They blamed these groups for attacks on police, government and political institutions, racists, fascists and “symbols of capitalism”, documents show.

Why would Obama do anything about these groups. Their his disciples and they were doing his work. That’s why he invited the very dangerous Black Lives Matter leaders to the White House.

Barack Obama knew Black Lives Matter is a Black Supremacist Marxist group as soon as it formed in 2014.

These groups were doing the bidding of the left and for those who doubt Obama is far-left, you need to read up on what he has done. Obama is a Marxist who went as far-left as he felt he could without an uprising in his peaceful transformation of the country.

Dr. Ron Martinelli has been studying Black Lives Matter since their inception and has written a book about them.

Antifa App Targets Right-Wing Media for Censorship

Posted on September 18, 2018

Antifa App Targets Right-Wing Media for Censorship

AR Staff, American Renaissance, September 18, 2018

Journalists help market it.

It’s said that silencing a man doesn’t prove him a liar—it only proves you’re afraid of what he might say. Yet it also proves that the censor is more powerful than the speaker. The marketplace of ideas, if it ever existed, has long since died, as an all-encompassing mass media under concentrated ownership, corporate censorship, and a far-left education system allow a dominant narrative to hold sway over our society. For a short time, the internet provided a voice for political dissidents. However, that voice is being silenced in part by self-styled “anarchists” working in partnership with corporate journalists.

The “No Platform For Fascism” web browser add-on is one of the censors’ tools. Created by the “Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council [MACC],” it is software that can be downloaded and added to a user’s browser, with the iconic red and black flags then appearing on your toolbar. The user can then see a list of videos on YouTube that the programmers have identified as “fascist.” By clicking the “report” button, preloaded text is put into the user’s complaint form to be sent to YouTube Support. The user does not even need to watch the video he or she is protesting. With one more click, the user is on to the next video and another block of preloaded text. On the right is the phrase “No Platform,” with the anarchist “A” symbol, the red and black flags, and the three arrows of the old German Social Democratic Party’s “Iron Front” incorporated within it.

The app keeps track of how many videos users have reported, including how many views those videos have accumulated. Like a video game, the user can track his progress in “fighting fascism” from the comfort of his chair. At the time of this writing, the app claimedthat 88,355 reports have been filed, with 29 videos removed and 55 videos targeted. The app also features media updates praising the software. The latest is an article from the New Yorker’s Colin Moynihan praising “The Anarchists Combatting The Far Right On YouTube.” Mr. Moynihan notes that “YouTube, which says its mission is to ‘give everyone a voice and show them the world,’ has always seen itself as a platform for free expression, which means that rooting out hate speech may present a complicated task for the company.” Leaving aside the question of why legal free expression needs to be restricted at all, the piece does not answer why far-left groups should be the ones determining what is “hate speech.”

The New Yorker is not the only major media outlet praising the campaign. Vice’s Motherboard tech blog urges readers to “Help remove far-right propaganda from YouTube with this extension for Chrome and Firefox.” Author Arvind Dilawar also seems to share MACC’s agenda of, in his words, “driv[ing] bigots from YouTube.” Like Mr. Moynihan, he respects the desire for anonymity from some of the people behind the app, a courtesy that white advocates rarely enjoy from journalists. According to his biography, Mr. Dilawar is an “anarchist” like his subjects. He was also charged with felony robbery last year after reportedly stealing a phone from a person counter-protesting a left-wing group.

Still, the adoring coverage does not change the reality of MACC’s campaign. Despite their pretensions, the group’s tactics and agenda are in reality less about opposing the system and more about upholding it, with self-styled anarchists acting like hall monitors upholding the corporate agenda.

The “No Platform For Fascism” app’s preloaded complaint text for each video often ends with an exclamation point, the better to feign moral indignation or emotional distress from people who, in all likelihood, have not watched the video or would have never known of its existence were it not for the app. Sometimes there are even multiple punctuation marks, the better to pretend that an authentic human user is making the complaint:
“Why is YouTube providing a platform to celebrate genocide????”
“Why is YouTube giving the ***literal KKK*** a platform to spread white supremacy?”
“This hate speech does not belong on YouTube!”

Some of the targeted videos are rather inflammatory. However, even the most extreme ones are no worse than the more excitable declarations one can find by various non-whites on YouTube or from speeches and interviews from various historical figures such as the late Khalid Muhammad. For that matter, even the most extreme propaganda from the likes of the Atomwaffen Division is no more blood-curdling than the propaganda from self-described anti-fascists singing about how “we only carry hatchets to bury in your head.”

Some videos are clearly satirical. Others are recruitment videos for “far-right” groups, but it’s unclear why those videos should be deleted when equally extreme videos from leftist radicals such as antifa don’t get banned. It seems that, like the aristocratic ladies who visited Dr . Johnson to congratulate him on omitting obscenities in the first English dictionary, these “anarchists” are simply looking for things to offend them.

Some videos are not extreme or offensive at all and seem to be targeted precisely becausethey are reasonable. For example, the popular YouTube commentator “Sargon of Akkad,” who is no white nationalist, had one of his videos targeted because it is a discussion with the commentator “Millennial Woes” on white nationalism. The four-hour talk covers a wide variety of topics and can hardly be considered incendiary, hateful, or propagandistic. Sargon stridently argues against white nationalism. Nonetheless, anarchists say this discussion deserves “no platform.”

Similarly, an American Renaissance video called “Why Blacks Riot” is also targeted. This video calmly explains the epidemic of black mob violence victimizing this country. It references history, documentary evidence, and the words of blacks themselves. Yet as the app’s preloaded complaint describes it:

This video is extremely racist! It claims that black people are predisposed to rioting and do so in order to rob white people. How dare YouTube provide a platform for this racist garbage!

If videos such as this are to be censored, there can be no discussion of controversial issues on YouTube. The “conversation about race” Americans are urged to have is evidently to be a monologue. Race realists and white advocates don’t need censorship because if our ideas are freely discussed, we win.

In contrast, antifa and the journalists who support them need to resort to force in the streets and censorship online to prop up multiculturalism’s ramshackle edifice. Unlike Mr. Moynihan of the New Yorker, we think an attempt to “give everyone a voice and show them the world” sounds pretty good.

Of course, whatever free expression still exists online will not last long if the anarchists-cum-hall monitors continue to brigade content they don’t like with preloaded complaint forms and coordinated censorship efforts. Therefore, it is important for both racial realists and sincere believers in free expression to fight back.

Be sure to tell YouTube you are against dishonest, coordinated efforts to flag and censor content with prewritten complaints. Take the initiative to spread our videos on as many networks and platforms as possible. File a complaint in the Chrome or Firefox web store about the “No Platform” app because it is inherently abusive. Finally, become a creator yourself. Make your own videos spreading the word of white advocacy, even if it only means reading pieces you like from our website and making an accompanying video.

The truth is on our side and so is free speech. However, like Ben Franklin warned about our republic, our right to free speech lasts only so long as we can keep it.

Communist Antifa Groups Angrily Confront Senator Ted Cruz During a Dinner With His Wife.

DC restaurant gets DEATH THREATS after mob of anti-Kavanaugh protesters angrily confronted Ted Cruz while he and his wife ate dinner

By CHARLOTTE DEAN FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 05:56 EDT, 27 September 2018 | UPDATED: 13:55 EDT, 27 September 2018

 
-Member’s of the employee’s families have also received threats to their lives
-Owner of Fiola in took to Twitter to commend his employee’s ‘grit and calm’
-Senator Cruz and his wife were hounded by protesters at Washington restaurant
-Since the incident the owner Fabio Trabocchi has introduced safety measures

 

The staff at a Washington DC restaurant where Senator Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi were hounded by anti-Kavanaugh protesters earlier this week are receiving ‘death threats’.

As well as the employee’s receiving threats to their lives, members of their family have also had intimidating warnings from protesters.

The protest group which targeted Cruz at the event demanded to know his position on Brett Kavanagh, following his sexual assault allegations, and he was later threatened with messages like: ‘You are not safe’.

The owner of Fiola, Fabio Trabocchi, took to Twitter to post a statement commending his employee’s ‘remarkable grit and calm’ in the wake of the event on Monday night.

In the statement, he said: ‘Personally, I am blessed to work with the staff who have handled the harassment and life-threatening messages we and our families have received in the wake of the event.

‘They have shown remarkable grit and calm, It is scary to hear anger directed at you and those you love — I am lucky to work with brave people who respect our work.’

‘We did our best Monday night to show DC what it means to live, love and work in a city where all voices are welcome – and quite necessary – to make a republic work,’ the statement read.

‘It takes everyone, Just like any family. It requires respect, listening, and sometimes a little etiquette, like keeping your elbows and politics off the dinner table.’

Trabocchi added that although he is not in the ‘business of hospitality or public safety’ he has since implemented safety measures since the incident.

They were made up of activists from Smash Racism DC and a handful of other left wing organizations and ambushed Cruz and his wife at the Italian restaurant near the White House.

They proudly shared videos of their stunt on Twitter afterwards and threatened Cruz, the president and ‘any the rest of the racist, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic right-wing scum’ by saying ominously: ‘You are not safe. We will find you.

‘We will expose you. We will take from you the peace you have taken from so many others.’

At the start of two videos uploaded by Smash Racism DC on Monday after the stunt, Cruz and his wife are seen making their way to their table as the protesters chanted: ‘We believe survivors! We believe survivors!’

Smash Racism DC would not answer questions about how its members knew where Cruz would be on Monday night when contacted.

A spokesman said the organization was ‘gathering’ media requests and would respond at a later date.

In the clip Cruz’s wife Heidi stared at the group incredulously then made her way to her seat. The senator told one of the women: ‘God bless you ma’am,’ then took his seat next to his wife.

They were seated for only a few seconds while helpless waiters and restaurant managers tried to control the group before the couple got up to leave.

As they left, a woman in the group shouted: ‘I deserve to know your position on Brett Kavanagh Senator.’

She earlier described herself as a ‘constituent’ and taunted the Cruz’s by saying: ‘I know you’re good friends with Kavanaugh.’

Brett Kavanaugh has angrily denied claims of drugging a high school girl and taking part in a gang rape leveled at him Wednesday.

Julie Swetnick, his new accuser, released a sworn statement through her attorney Michael Avenatti saying that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were there as she was abused by a ‘train’ of teenage boys.

She said she was drugged ‘using Quaaludes or something similar’ which had been put in her drink – and that Kavanaugh and his friends would spike ‘punch’ at parties with grain alcohol or drugs to ’cause girls to lose inhibitions and their ability to say ‘No’.’

Kavanaugh denied the new bombshell charges. ‘This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone,’ he said in a statement released by the White House. ‘I don’t know who this is and this never happened,’ he said.

The testimony is a fresh blow to Kavanaugh, already accused of two sexual assaults by named women – Christine Blasey Ford, who claims Kavanaugh groped her and covered her mouth at a high school party, and Debbie Ramirez, who claims he exposed himself to her at a Yale dorm party.

Kavanaugh denies the charges by all three women – and called the latest from ‘the Twilight zone’, while Donald Trump accused Avenatti of being a ‘low-life’ who brought false accusations.

As footage of the incident spread online, the group tweeted that they had decided to ‘interrupt.’

‘No—you can’t eat in peace—your politics are an attack on all of us You’re votes are a death wish. Your votes are hate crimes.

‘Tonight Senator Ted Cruz arrived at Fiola, an upscale restaurant mere steps from the White House, to enjoy a hearty Italian dinner.

‘He could have dined on a lavish four course meal for only $145 while millions of Americans struggle to buy groceries. He might have sampled from the top shelf wine list as migrant children languish in cages.

‘He’d have laughed with his wife while women and members of the LGBTQ community collectively gasp in horror as Senator Cruz pushes forward on Bret Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. At least he could have had activists not interrupted his evening just as he was being seated.

‘Instead, activists from Smash Racism DC, Resist This, DC IWW, members of DC Democratic Socialists of America, Anarchists, women, sexual assault survivors, and members of the LGBTQ community interrupted Ted Cruz’s peaceful meal.’

They went on to say that their interruption ‘does not compare in scale to the interruptions his actions as a Senator have had on millions of American lives.’

‘We hope that it reminds Cruz and others like him that they are not safe from the people they have hurt.

‘This is a message to Ted Cruz, Bret Kavanaugh, Donald Trump and the rest of the racist, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic right-wing scum: You are not safe. We will find you. We will expose you.

‘We will take from you the peace you have taken from so many others.

‘Sincerely, Some Anti Fascist Hooligans. We demand a world free of sexual violence, and state violence. We want a world without prisons, borders, or capitalism,’ they said.

They signed off by posting the phone number of right-wing activist Gavin McInnes.

Smash Racism is part of a coalition of ‘anti-fascist’ groups known as Shut It Down DC.

NEWS FLASH TO MEDIA: Antifa Is COMMUNIST!

thenewamerican.com

Written by William F. Jasper

No matter how many communist hammers & sickles or images of Marx, Mao, and other communists the violent Antifa radicals display, the Fake News media continue to present them as idealistic “anti-fascists.”

“When we fight, we fight for communism, and all our constructive and destructive activity is geared toward building our party, which will wage a protracted people’s war, establishing socialism and continuing the revolution under the rule of the working class.”

So declares Red Guards Austin, the masked “Antifa” thugs of Austin, Texas, who march about displaying the communist hammer & sickle symbol, and who also openly display banners emblazoned with images of Karl Marx and mass-murderers Mao Zedong and Vladimir Lenin. See, for example, the photos to the right and immediately below, from their website (see here and here; the article continues below the photo.)

Unequivocally Communist

The organizers, theorists, strategists, and writers of Antifa (short for “Anti-fascist”) are unequivocally communists, as is evident not only from their obvious communist tactics and their own admissions and public proclamations, but also from their ties to (and support from) formal communist parties, as well as their adoption of communist slogans, symbols, chants, and causes. Many Antifa leaders and groups unabashedly proclaim themselves Maoists, Marxist-Leninists, Stalinists, or Trotskyites.

The above-mentioned black-clad hoodlums of Red Guards Austin, for example, offer unalloyed praise for one of history’s most notorious dictators and mass murderers in “A Tribute to Comrade Joseph Stalin.” As Maoist communists, they also have great affection, of course, for Mao Zedong, the only dictator ever to top Stalin in the bloodletting and liquidation business. According to the meticulous research of the late Professor R. J. Rummel, Mao’s regime murdered over 76 million Chinese.

Mao is, nevertheless, idolized by Red Guards Austin. In listing the “weapons” of their cause, these Antifa hoodlums say: “The first and most important among these [weapons] is the Maoist party — Red Guards Austin’s reason for existence is to build this party with other Maoists in the US.”

The Red Guards Austin are not the only Antifa group proudly declaring their communist lineage and their adherence to Marxist-Leninist ideology. Indeed, virtually all of the Antifa organizations around the country that have been rioting and burning our cities and physically assaulting American citizens openly declare their communist sympathies. This is no secret, yet the establishment news media continue to refer to the Antifa criminals and terrorists by their preferred labels: anti-fascist, anti-Nazi, anti-racist.

CNN Investigative Report Unmasks … Zilch

For example, on August 22, 2017, CNN produced an “investigative news” report entitled “Unmasking the leftist Antifa movement” that did zero unmasking. Instead, the CNN report glamorized Antifa, providing a public relations bonanza for mayhem makers. “We are meeting members of the Rose City Antifa, short for Anti-Fascist,” CNN reporter Sara Ganim explained as she went to a secret meeting in Portland, Oregon, with the masked Antifa members. “This group’s main goal is to disrupt neo-Nazis and white supremacists, but also to take on government and capitalism,” Ganim noted. CNN’s reference to “taking on” capitalism was as close as the “unmasking” got to even hinting at Antifa’s core communist motivation. A young masked Antifa woman tells Ganim’s CNN audience that “Antifa is any group that is willing to stand up to fascists by any means necessary.”

That sounds pretty idealistic — maybe even admirable — does it not? After all, everyone knows fascists and Nazis are bad. Shouldn’t we stand up to them? But here’s the rub: For Antifa activists,“fascist” is a totally elastic label that can be stretched to smear anyone with whom they disagree, including brave people who truly fought fascism — people such as my parents and my uncles who put their lives on the line in World War II to fight Hitler and the Nazis. My father was a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne (D-Day, Battle of the Bulge); my mother was in the Army Nurse Corps (England, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany). My parents were fiercely anti-Nazi, anti-fascist, anti-racist, and anti-KKK — and, just as fiercely, anti-communist. It was the anti-communist part that made them, and millions of other patriotic veterans like them, “enemies of the people” in the eyes of the Communist Party, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the Weather Underground, and the Black Panther Party — the ancestors of today’s Antifa. So, during the 1960s and ’70s, my parents and other anti-communist Americans who had actually fought the Nazis had to endure being called Nazis by Marxist-Leninist baby-boomer brats and hardcore communist terrorists who were bent on establishing a totalitarian dictatorship that would have been every bit as tyrannical and genocidal as Hitler’s.

Antifa’s Professor Mike Isaacson

So it continues today. According to Professor Mike Isaacson (shown at right), an Antifa leader who teaches at the City University of New York’s John Jay College of Law, “Anti-communism is code for fascism.” There you have it: If you’re an anti-communist, if you’re averse to living in a communist police state — 24/7 surveillance, repression, torture, gulags, genocide, etc. — well, then, you’re obviously a FASCIST. If you stand anywhere to the right of Mao Zedong or Fidel Castro, you are a FASCIST, and, according to the Antifa jihadists, you should be treated as such. Which means that not only have you forfeited your right to speak, but also your right to exist. It’s “Off with your head!” Literally. The Antifa website It’s Going Down wants to bring back the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror, with a campaign to “Make the Guillotine Red Again.” Communist megalomaniacs from Marx to Lenin, Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro, and Pol Pot have invoked the French Revolution’s massive bloodletting as their inspiration for remolding society.

Prof. Isaacson, a founder of Smash Racism DC, an Antifa group in our nation’s capital that participated in the violent and disruptive “protests” during President Trump’s inauguration, has gained infamy for his numerous public endorsements of Antifa violence and his many tweets supporting murder of police officers, some of whom are his law school students. Here are a few of his offensive tweets that have caused outrage:

• July 18, 2017 — “Dead Cops are good, Laci.”

• August 16, 2017 — “What’s even the point of a cop that isn’t dead?”

• August 17, 2017 — “I hear their police stations catch on fire with an accelerant.”

• August 23, 2017 — “Some of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.”

• August 29, 2017 — “Off the pigs”

And he teaches law at a prestigious law school! A committed Marxist-Leninist, Isaacson has even developed a Marxist, collectivist method of grading his students because, he says, the “pursuit of knowledge is a collective pursuit.”

“Few academic or professional endeavors are the result of individuals acting alone,” statesIsaacson’s grading curve policy for his class, “ECO 101: Introduction to Economics and Global Capitalism.” “All graded assignments will receive grades reflective of not only individual efforts, but also class effort,” the class description continues.

In September, due to public outcry over Isaacson’s outrageous anti-police statements and his support for Antifa violence, he was put on administrative leave by John Jay College. However, that public outcry didn’t arise because of any coverage of Isaacson in the “mainstream” media; it came about thanks to outrage from police unions and coverage of the Antifa prof’s antics by the independent conservative media. For its part, the establishment Fake News media was content to present Isaacson as a credible academic and quote his more “nuanced” — and seemingly more moderate — statements, without hinting at his radical Marxist roots.

The members of the press have no excuse for continuing to treat communist Antifa revolutionists as brave “anti-fascists” and romantic crusaders fighting against Nazis, racists, and social injustice. Ignorance and incompetence only go so far in explaining the bias, imbalance, and self-censorship in the media’s Antifa coverage. Willful blindness to the facts and sympathy for the Antifa agenda (if not a total endorsement of its violent communist methods) are clearly at play here.

Below are some of the additional important facts that the American people need to know about the Antifa “phenomenon,” but which the pro-Antifa media have ignored, censored, downplayed, or half-hidden from the general public’s view.

Without Organized Communist Leadership Antifa Wouldn’t Exist

Communist parties and communist organizations such as the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Workers World Party (WWP), By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and RefuseFascism.org provide the key leadership, ideological indoctrination, organizing, and training for the Antifa rioters. They also provide the chants, slogans, signs, and banners for the Antifa confrontations. This is not new; it is a continuation of the same communist organizational operations that have run through the radical Occupy Wall Street, anti-war, anti-police, immigration (DACA, Dreamers), environmental, and other protests over the past several decades. This is not difficult to document, as we have been showing for years from the radicals’ own admissions and publicly available documents. (See here, here, here, and here.)

Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Professor Cornel West (shown at right) promotes Antifa as “saviors” — with help from the media. Prof. West (Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Union Theological Seminary) has been a hardcore Marxist activist for decades, openly working with the Revolutionary Communist Party, the violent Maoists who idolize Mao Zedong and his murderous Red Guards who terrorized China in the 1960s and ’70s.

West claims that Antifa thugs at the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia, riot on August 12 “saved” him and his leftist clergy comrades from being beaten by the fascists. We have counted dozens of stories in the major media that have repeated this claim by West, many of which have gone on to use this as an accolade for the masked felons and as supposed evidence of Antifa’s “anti-fascist” bonafides. Not a single story we have seen has even mentioned Cornel West’s communist credentials, let alone questioned his motives in glorifying Antifa, or (perish the thought!) asked whether or not the “saving” operation may have been planned from the start for precisely the propaganda value that it obviously has accrued.

Antifa author/professor Mark Bray admits Antifa’s communist ideology and origins in his Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, but disingenuously entangles it with the less-understood anarchist label and the more benign-sounding socialist label. (Professor Bray is shown below on “Democracy Now!” with a cover image of his handbook shown to the right.) He also attempts to ennoble and sanctify the Antifa brand by clothing it in “anti-fascist” garb and dishonest rhetoric that claims the group’s well-documented record of initiating violence is somehow justified as “self defense.” Repeating a thesis of his book, Bray told Sean Illing of the left-wing Vox website: “Anti-fascism originated in response to early European fascism, and when Mussolini’s Blackshirts and Hitler’s Brownshirts were ascendant in Europe, various socialist, communist, and anarchist parties and groups emerged to confront them.” (Article continues after photo.)

Antifa Flag: Designed by Communist Propagandists

The Antifa flag was designed by Communist Party propagandists to serve communist purposes. Where did the Antifa logo (pictured below) with the red and black flags (symbolizing communist/anarchist unity) come from? The rallying symbol, ever-present on flags and banners at Antifa events, can be traced back to Germany in the 1920s, reports the radical left-wing Jacobinmagazine, in “The Lost History of Antifa.”

According to the Jacobin account, it was “devised by Association of Revolutionary Visual Artists members Max Keilson and Max Gebhard, [and] has been since become one of the Left’s most well-known symbols.” What the Jacobin article doesn’t tell readers is that the Association of Revolutionary Visual Artists was an official propaganda arm of the German Communist Party, which was a subservient branch of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Max Keilson and Max Gebhard were high-level Communist Party members. Keilson’s wife, Margarete Schnate-Keilson, was a top member of the German Communist Party’s Central Committee, and a ruthless agent of the Comintern (Communist International), the global network of Soviet spies, assassins, propagandists, and agents of influence. Among her many exploits, for which she received Soviet and East German honors, was helping convicted atom bomb spy Klaus Fuchs escape. She later married Fuchs. An undated black-and-white photo (presumably from the 1930s) shows a German Antifa gathering in an auditorium with a huge Antifa flag/banner in the center of the stage flanked by communist flags with the hammer & sickle on either side.

SDS Radicals From the ’60s
Prof. Mark Bray is certainly aware of this history, as well as the essential red/black, communist/anarchist ties that run throughout Antifa’s current composition, but he does not share this crucial information with his television audiences. And his media interviewers are complicit in his deception. Communist SDS leader and Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers is one of the many radical Marxists now continuing their 1960s activism through Antifa. At a Trump campaign rally in Chicago on March 11, 2016, Ayers joined Antifa, Revolutionary Communist Party, and Communist Part PUSA agitators who violently blocked the rally, causing it to be cancelled. A video interview with Ayers at the event also shows many of the other participating communist groups, as well as featuring a young anti-Trump woman who sings/chants about “armed revolution” and “it’s time to pick up a gun.”

More SDS Reds from the 1960s, such as C. Clark Kissinger and Dan Siegel, are helping the Antifa anarcho-communists:

• Clark Kissinger was national secretary of the SDS in the 1960s and was such a devoted Maoist that he visited Communist China twice and was an avid propagandist for Chairman Mao’s bloody Cultural Revolution and Red Guards. His fervor has not dimmed over the past five decades: He continues as an activist comrade in the Revolutionary Communist Party, writes for the RCP’s Revolution newspaper/website, runs the Revolution Books bookstore in New York City, and is a leading figure in the Occupy Wall Street movement, as well as in the RCP fronts (and Antifa’s guiding allies) Refuse&Resist, NotInOurName, and RefuseFascism.org.

• Dan Siegel was an SDS leader and, as student body president at the University of California-Berkeley, led the 1969 “Bloody Thursday” riot, also known as the “Battle for Peoples’ Park” at UC Berkeley. He has been a radical “civil rights” lawyer ever since. He is an Occupy Wall Street/Occupy Oakland activist and a longtime friend and adviser to radical Oakland Mayor Jean Quan. Siegel’s Occupy comrades turned the series of Occupy Oakland protests in 2011-2012 into bloody riots that were some of the most violent, destructive, and costly operations of the Occupy movement. The Occupy Oakland conflagrations served as a principal training ground for Antifa recruits.

Few familiar with Siegel’s background were surprised when he showed up as the attorney for Professor Eric Clanton, the now-infamous Antifa thug arrested and charged with the cowardly and vicious attacks (which could easily have been lethal) in Berkeley last April. In those attacks, several Trump supporters at a rally were (allegedly) clobbered by Clanton, who was wielding a heavy, steel bike lock. One of the victims, who was struck on the head in a sneak attack, was seriously injured. Clanton, the alleged attacker, then blended back into the crowd, a typical tactic recommended in the Antifa handbooks. However, the attacks were caught on video, and online sleuths were able to unmask Clanton as the alleged attacker using computer forensic tools.

Revolutionary Communist Party

The Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) is a central player in Antifa violence. Whether the Antifa mayhem erupts in Boston, Berkeley, Charlottesville, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Baltimore, St. Louis, Oakland, Seattle, or elsewhere, the RCP cadres are inevitably exercising a leading role. This is evident on many levels, the most obvious being the distinctive RCP signs carried by the Antifa activists. Again, this is no secret; the RCP’s web address (www.revcom.us) is printed on the signs. This RCP branding is clearly visible even in many of the photos accompanying “mainstream” media reports on Antifa. But the Fake News journalists virtually never point out this fact, nor do they show the slightest inclination in probing the RCP’s organizing role. Ditto for the RCP’s front group, Refuse Fascism. The RCP/RefuseFascism cadres have been hard at work for decades recruiting and building an American version of Mao’s Red Guards to implement a Maoist Cultural Revolution here in the United States.

They do not hide this. In fact they boast of it. One example out of many: An interview with RCP leader Raymond Lotta in the RCP’s Revolution newspaper for May 9, 2016, titled “The Cultural Revolution: The Furthest Advance of Human Emancipation Yet.” “The Cultural Revolution was the high point of the first stage of communist revolution,” avers Comrade Lotta. “The Cultural Revolution was the most far-reaching attempt in modern history, and in human history, to revolutionize and restructure a society away from all exploitation and oppression…. During the course of this, millions and millions of people revolutionized their world outlook — that is, their basic values, their approach to reality — and the whole ethos, or spirit, of society was transformed.” Yes, and millions of people were, jailed, tortured, and executed in the process, while the remaining hundreds of millions (except for the privileged Communist Party elites) were enslaved. In Antifa, the Maoist RCP has already formed the basis for their long-envisioned Red Guard Amerika.

On September 11, 2017, the RCP’s Revolution published a Refuse Fascism article entitled “Shameful, Dangerous, Wrong Attacks on Antifa,” which takes to task those elements of the “progressive left” that have criticized Antifa’s violent methods.

Below are several of the many photos available on a Chinese-language website showing the grisly reality of the Cultural Revolution. The photos below of public condemnation of Chinese accused of “thought crimes” do not begin to show the depths of torture and despair and the horrendous murders of Mao’s Red Guards, whom Antifa glorify and seek to emulate. (Article continues beneath photos.)

Communist Workers Party
The Communist Workers World Party (WWP) provides key support to Antifa efforts. Like the RCP, the WWP is a hardcore, unapologetic communist organization with a long history of violent “protest” and rioting. While the RCP true believers channel Mao, the WWP have chosen Bolshevik death-dealer Leon Trotsky. In an editorial in the third issue of the party’s publication, International Workers Day, the group proclaimed, “We are THE Trotskyists. We stand 100% with all the principled positions of Leon Trotsky, the most revolutionary communist since Lenin.” On August 14, two days after the deadly Charlottesville mayhem, WWP cadres led a similar attack that toppled a statue of a Confederate soldier in Durham, North Carolina.

Clearly, they were hoping to provoke a riot similar to the lethal Charlottesville melee. Among the WWP Trotskyists arrested were Takiyah Thompson, Ngoc Loan Tran, Dante Emmanuel Strobino, Peter Gull Gilbert, and Raul Jiminez. The WWP is holding a “#Do It Like Durham” Workers World Party Forum in New York City on October 14, featuring Takiya Thompson and Ngoc Loan Tran. Thompson, who climbed the Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina on August 16 and put the rope around its neck that was used to pull it down, has become something of a celebrity among the “progressive” Left, since a video of her “heroic” exploit went viral.

Black Lives Matter

Antifa ally Black Lives Matter (BLM) has provided the most successful communist exploitation of race hatred since the 1960s-’70s. The “white privilege” mantra of the BLM activists was invented by Noel Ignatiev (shown at right), a member of the Communist Party USA and a co-founder of its most militant Stalinist/Maoist offshoot, the Provisional Organizing Committee.

Ignatiev is also a co-founder of the New Abolitionist Society (the object of which is to “abolish the white race”) and co-founder of Race Traitor: Journal of the New Abolitionism.

“The key to solving the social problems of our age is to abolish the white race,” says Ignatiev, who is white. And, says this white Red who exploits and incites blacks to attack whites, “The abolitionists do not limit themselves to socially acceptable means of protest, but reject in advance no means of attaining their goal.” In other words, “By any means necessary,” the slogan that has become one of the refrains of the Antifa/BLM militants. According to Ignatiev, “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites!”

This kind of racist, anti-white speech has become standard fare among millions of students marinated in Ignatiev’s communist propaganda, and can be regularly seen and heard at BLM/Antifa events. The three radical lesbian co-founders of Black Lives Matter — Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi — identify themselves as “Black queer women” and are members of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, which draws much of its inspiration from Ignatiev’s Provisional Organizing Committee. (We have previously traced much of the BLM’s Marxist-Leninist-terrorist lineage here.)

Media Censorship
It goes on and on. The evidence that Antifa is a communist instrument serving the anti-American, anti-liberty communist agenda is overwhelming. Which is not to say that all, or even most, of the young activists involved are conscious of this fact, or even realize that the chants and slogans they are mouthing, or the memes they are tweeting, are weaponized words designed by communist propagandists such as Mao, Trotsky, and Ignatiev.

However, there are many in the media who cannot claim ignorance as a defense; they are consciously censoring this crucial information that Americans need to understand the world and make vital decisions. And they must be called to account for this unconscionable betrayal.
