The extreme liberal movement Antifa, anti-fascists, are continuing to protest President Trump all throughout the nation. They claim their use of violence is ‘necessary’ to combat authoritarianism and they are not sorry about it.
‘Experts’ and activists alike in the Antifa movement agree that the ‘use of force is intrinsic to their political philosophy,’ the Hill reports.
“The justification [of the use of violence] is that Nazi ideology at its very core is founded on violence and on wielding power by any means,” said Mike Isaacson, founder of Smash Racism D.C., an antifa organization in Washington.
Isaacson is unequivocal in his defense of violence as a legitimate tool to combat the creeping threat of what he deems authoritarianism.
“There is the question of whether these people should feel safe organizing as Nazis in public, and I don’t think they should,” said Isaacson.
“I don’t think anyone should think that someone who is intent on politically organizing for the sake of creating a state-sponsored genocide — I don’t think is something that we should protect.”
This report comes after it was revealed Antifa has started a violent anti-cop ‘workshop’ titled “Our Enemies in Blue”.
The program is being touted on various alt-left websites — including It’s Going Down, Sub.Media and Insurrection News — and are promoting it as a “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement” (RAM). They are openly calling for violence against the police.
The group published a press release: in it they disclosed their plan to serve as a protective barrier to mosques that “are being ruthlessly bombed” (are they talking about America?) and the alleged systematic battering of LGBTQ community. “The destruction of black life continues unabated as millions languish in the plantations of the modern day slave system,” it states.
The ‘heroins’ of RAM includes Mumia Abu Jamal, “the Black Panther activist who shot and killed Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981,” and Russell Shoats, “who shot a police officer in the back five times in 1970.”
Far Left Watch has outlined the goals of RAM, which is everything from “Abolition of Gender” to the “Expropriation and the Cooperative Economy.” ‘Much of this borrows from the leftist guerilla movement known as the Rojava Revolution in northern Syria, who are currently involved in battling ISIS,’ reports the Daily Wire.
It has been reported, by the Daily Caller, that RAM has been holding different anti-police workshops including: “Legal Training”, “Introduction to Anarchism,” and “Our Enemies in Blue,” which deals with actual actions against the police–or how to handle law enforcement during violent clashes.
