Contrary to assertions by useful idiots like Robert Reich that the Berkeley riots were the work of paramilitary right-wingers, it has become increasingly evident that black-clad Antifa anarchists coordinated with Bay Area community activists and UC Berkeley student groups to orchestrate the violent protests against Milo Yiannapolous. The Antifa rioters are the same mask-wearing, black-outfitted, Molotov cocktail-throwing, fire-burning, stick-carrying pugilist punks featured in The Occupation Manifesto and The Occupation Devolution videos chronicling Occupy Oakland in 2011.
Although some of us sounded the alarm, too few paid attention.
Antifa is short for anti-fascist and is pronounced an-TEE-fah. According to left-leaning tech magazine Wired, they are militant anti-fascist[s] and anarchists prone to property destruction and online abuse.they double down on political polarization, driving the national narrative even further from center. For a deeper explanation into its historical roots, see The Washington Post, Wired Magazine, and USA Today.
Antifa is believed to have been born in 1970s Germany -- a far left, communist, anti-fascist reaction to far right, neo-Nazi fascist groups ascendant at the time. It spread throughout Europe and found its way to the US where it seems to have first appeared at the WTO riots in Seattle. Like a bad rash, they keep popping up, having been actively engaged in the Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, and anti-Trump movements. Like ISIS, independent cells exist all over the world.
They are incredibly well-networked, trained in effective paramilitary tactics, and have a nuanced and sophisticated understanding, use and manipulation of the internet -- especially trolling, DDoS attacks, and their Bash the Fash and Meme Wars with the fascist alt-right.

they need to be arrested and jailed with serious time and the whole organization charged with RICO violations and sued as well.
Rioters and looters should be shot by the ordinary folks whose property, person, or lives they threaten.
Note to Berkeley rioters: if youre breaking glass at night because a gay, Jew is speaking, youre not protesting fascism. You are fascism.
Very well said
That's never going to happen as long as liberal mayors and police chiefs keep ordering their cops to stand down.
Anyone too chickenshit to show their face, hiding behind a bandana while hurling a brick of flaming molotov cocktail needs to be dropped by a sniper on the roof top.
Rober Reich said they were “right wing rioter” as a member of the right im fine if they shoot the bastards if we can get a letter of OK by robert reich..... still waiting for that letter.....
During Hurricane Katrina, property owners had signs: YOU LOOT, WE SHOOT. And we meant it.
The businesses around UC Berkeley have been destroyed literally hundreds of times, because the owners will not stand up to these thugs.
Btw, the punk looking straight at the camera in the OP looks like Tom Cruise. He’s probably protesting because it gets him laid, not because of any principles.
To be honest, they are the perfect foil for Trump, and should be egged on wherever and whenever possible. The left is really ill-equipped to separate themselves from them, having committed so heavily to portraying Trump as Hitler. When middle America thinks of liberalism/progressivism/Democrats, Antifa is what should come to mind.
These are fighting staves disguised as "protest implements."
They are deadly weapons. And should be dealt with accordingly with overwhelming counter force.
Isn't that RICO? Why aren't the FEDs involved by now? (as you know they would be if conservatives did this...)
I am surprised that Trump has not pounced on this. I think he may be waiting until the de Vos confirmation today, the Sessions confirmation ASAP, and then maybe Sessions can act? I sure hope there are some suits, arrests, sentences....
FROM EPOCH TIMES 2-3-2017:
Change.org Petition Wants ANTIFA Declared a Terrorist Organization
A Change.org petition is being circulated on Friday to declare the anti-fascist ANTIFA organization a terrorist organization following violent protests at the University of California, Berkeley.
Terrorism is, in its broadest sense, the use of intentionally indiscriminate violence as a means to create terror or fear, in order to achieve a political, religious, or ideological aim. ANTIFA have demonstrated time and time again that theyre more than willing and able to fill these criteria, the petition reads.
Were asking that the president formally declare ANTIFA a domestic terror organization.
As of press time on Friday afternoon, it had more than 10,000 of the 15,000 signatures needed and was rising fast. . .
