ĎAnti-Fascistsí Use Fascist Tactics to Crack Down on Trump Supporters
EagleRising ^ | April 18, 2017 | Philip Hodges

That word they keep using. I don’t think it means what they think it means.

They use the word ‘fascist’ as if it refers to anyone who disagrees with them. The so-called ‘anti-Fascist’ ctrl-left anarchist group Antifa clashed with other people who didn’t see eye to eye with them. They even clashed with Bernie Sanders supporters who didn’t even like Trump.

But they were still accosted, assaulted, and told that they were ‘Nazis.’ There’s another one of those words which meaning isn’t what they think it is. Here’s Heat St.:

The protests against Donald Trump this past weekend didn’t only involve violence between Antifa and members of the alt-right. In Berkeley, some Antifa members assaulted observers, according to commenters on Reddit who said they were at the scene.

Several threads have cropped up on Reddit to condemn the anarchists, one of which even called for Mayor Jesse Arreguin to resign for failing to handle the protests. They argued that the anarchists’ presence at the protests caused violence to spiral out of control.

On Reddit’s r/Berkeley community, one user who said he/she attended the protest described an assault and robbery of a bystander by masked Antifa members.

Other attendees wrote about how they were tear-gassed with the M-80 canisters that the anarchists came equipped with.

So, this is part of the violence that Kellyanne Conway was asked about. She called on Democrat leaders to condemn it in the same way that Democrats called on Trump to condemn violence that was allegedly committed in his name.

How come they never crack down on this 6-4 300lb Trump supporter?

these protests are good in that they are unmasking the left as the fascists they really are. the more violent they get the more they lose the casual public that never understood what they were voting for when they voted the progressive democratic ticket. at this point we have to keep the pressure up by enacting reforms and realize that the more they scream foul the more they are losing the battle for the hearts and minds of those that might out of ignorance vote for there causes.

Heh, the same reason the PETA loosers don’t throw paint on bikers all decked out in leather.

It’s good to see in the last Berkeley fiasco that some Trump supporters were pushing back pretty hard.

Actually had the trust fund babies on the run a few times and threw some good self defense punches too.

AntiFA = Anti First Amendment

Let a leftist try to tell you otherwise.

These are pure storm troopers in Berkley. They assault, destroy and rampage at will, the city, cops and other authorities sit by doing nothing to control them. Its high time for Trump to tell California and Berkley to get control or he will send in the Army to take charge. If there is one group they hate more than Trump, its the Army. Would be great to see them taking orders.

Excellent, AntiFA = Anti First Amendment!

Dang, why didn’t I think of that.

It’ll drive the snowflakes/anarchists crazy when it hits twitter...

Maybe I’m overestimating this... but I think Americans who believe in our civil society need to pay close attention to these thugs. They’re fighting for power and nothing else. Using masks and violence are signs that they are domestic terrorists.

Well last time there was a group of masked people conspiring to violate the civil rights of Americans, someone from the Justice Department decided to do something about it. Waiting........Waiting........Waiting.

...however...

Brendon S. Peck‏ @PeckPolitics The #antifa thugs were so thoroughly beaten in #Berkeley, so humiliated, that before they fled in shame, some were subjected to weggies. -- 5:50 PM - 15 Apr 2017

These radicals are behaving more like 1917 Soviet era Bolsheviks more than anything. They are dangerous and the DOJ has to eventually deal with this issues. They have a right to protest, they do not have a right to attack and intimidate any US citizen.

Just for the record, I can’t claim credit for it — I’ve been seeing it here and there for some number of months now. And the snowflakes and anarchists are already crazy anyway. :-)

A good tweet from the aftermath of the Leftist Blackshirt riot in Berkeley in February that prevented Milo from speaking:

We have anti-fascist groups here in Canada and their standard is to use whatever tools they can to limit free speech. That is their end goal. For calling them “fascists”, one of them sued and won against friends of mine.

Oh is it ever

On twitter I’ve gotten responses from the truth deniers who are really mad that what they are is proved by their attempts to project who THEY are on conservatives.

They like to use ALL CAPS and exclamation points “liberally” !!!!

Communists never use the term “Nazi”. Why? Because Nazi stood for “National Socialist”, it would be basically admitting that the Nazis were fellow Socialists, hence the term “Fascist”, which in truth should have only applied to the regime of Mussolini.
