Antifa

« Back to Glossary Index

They call themselves “antifascists” (Antifa for short). They are most notable for wearing masks and dressing all in black (known as Black Bloc) when they engage in violent, criminal activity. They claim to be fighting against fascism, racism, sexism, and capitalism. They claim to be fighting against hate — as they scream hateful profanities and beat their targeted opponents to bloody pulps. They have attached themselves to the Democratic Party and to liberal-left activist groups, none of which seem inclined to disassociate themselves from the violent anarchist/communist terrorists masquerading as defenders of the downtrodden. Indeed, the liberal elites in political circles and the establishment media have embraced the Antifa militants, excusing their examples of “excessive” violence as understandable outbursts of youthful idealism and necessary resorts to force when confronting the evil Nazis, fascists, racists — or Republicans.

It’s no surprise then to find out that Antifa’s roots are in communists and Nazis in Europe:

AntiFa’s history can be summarized like this — the group started out as the military wing of the German Communist Party (KPD). Before the rise of Hitler, they supported Stalin and Marxist socialism. Nazis were fascists. The KPD didn’t like other socialist groups so they were labeled fascist too.

The KPD’s armed group was AntiFa and they fought in the streets against every group the KPD labeled fascist. The KPD decided it liked Hitler so Stalin was fascist. Then Hitler was fascist again. After this they merged with the SA, better known as the Brownshirts and Stalin was fascist again.

It’s also no surprise that both Antifa and Neo-Nazis from Ukraine were involved in the violence at the Capitol on January 6th.

The movement has both above-ground and underground elements. The above-ground activists will engage in public demonstrations with their faces uncovered, and some will publicly identify with Antifa and even give interviews. The most notorious aspect of Antifa, apart from its violence, is its Black Bloc side, the underground members who dress in black, cover their faces, and carry out collective “direct action” (often criminal activities) as coordinated units.

As an anti-NAZI group, Why does their flag look so much like the NAZI flag why do they act like NAZIs and fascists?

In the wake of the deadly Antifa-white nationalist confrontation in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, the Antifa are being heralded as heroes. Professor Cornel West, a radical propagandist for the Revolutionary Communist Party and other extreme-left causes, famously claimed in a statement promoted by much of the national media that in Charlottesville the Antifa anarchists had rescued him and the clergy group he was with and “saved our lives” from the neo-Nazis.

After  years of rioting, burning, mass assaults, brutal beatings, and intimidation — aimed primarily at President Donald Trump, Trump supporters, and Republicans in general — Democratic Party leaders have remained inexcusably silent. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Charles Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, Al Gore, Al Franken, and other “progressive” Democrats have failed to utter a word of  “unequivocal condemnation” concerning the escalating wave of Antifa hate and violence.

On August 29, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi became the first nationally prominent “progressive” Democrat to issue a statement denouncing the violent, masked Antifa thugs stalking our campuses and city streets. “Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts,” Pelosi said in the press statement. “The violent actions of people calling themselves Antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted,” she continued. Pelosi, who represents San Francisco, was responding to political heat she was receiving for helping to incite the Antifa violence that had erupted across the bay in Berkeley two days earlier. Two rallies scheduled in the Bay Area — one in San Francisco, the other in Berkeley — by Patriot Prayer, a multi-ethnic, peaceful group, had been falsely denounced by Pelosi and other Bay Area political leaders as “white supremacist” rallies. Due to the vehement hatred and threats incited against them, Patriot Prayer canceled the San Francisco rally, but tried to carry off the Berkeley event as scheduled. However, it turned into a replay of the mayhem that had marked earlier efforts by students in the months before to bring conservative speakers to the University of California campus in Berkeley.

Numerous videos posted on Internet sites show a large mob of aggressive Antifa activists — many wearing masks and armed with clubs and other weapons — cursing, screaming at, and viciously beating, without provocation, Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson and a small group of attendees at the rally. Coming under blistering fire from commentators across the spectrum — from Fox’s Tucker Carlson to NPR’s Mara Liasson — and facing a possible lawsuit for her role in promoting the violent melee, Pelosi opted for the denouncement — as a public relations measure, no doubt. In a guest appearance on Fox News, Mara Liasson said denouncing Antifa is a “no brainer.” “People who wear black masks and beat peaceful protesters [should] have no support at all…. Democrats should be racing to the microphones” to condemn Antifa, the liberal NPR pundit declared.

However, there has been no race to the mics, though announced objectives of Antifa activists indicate that they are headed on a trajectory of escalating violence.

Antifa: Who, What, Where, Why, How

Who are the Antifa? Where did they come from? What do they believe? What do they want? Why do they do what they do? How do they operate? To whom are they connected?

Secrecy and darkness — There is much that we don’t know about Antifa for the simple reason that they operate in secrecy and concealment. The movement has both above-ground and underground elements. The above-ground activists will engage in public demonstrations with their faces uncovered, and some will publicly identify with Antifa and even give interviews. The most notorious aspect of Antifa, apart from its violence, is its Black Bloc side, the underground members who dress in black, cover their faces, and carry out collective “direct action” (often criminal activities) as coordinated units. Some Antifa activists float between the above-ground and underground, alternately masking up with the Black Bloc or marching openly with allied organizations, depending on the event and the day. Antifa groups are now active in most major American cities. Because they operate as autonomous cells or “affinity groups,” with no known centralized leadership and no general open-to-the-public membership, they have been difficult to penetrate and gather intelligence on. However, the hundreds of arrests of Antifa members over the past year have begun to bear fruit, providing important data on all aspects of their operations.

“Anti-Fascist” camouflage — Fascists, neo-Nazis, KKK, and other “white supremacists” are a minuscule, politically irrelevant minority with little sympathy and no credible following in the United States. To the extent that they enjoy any traction among young white males can largely be attributed to a reaction against the forced political correctness and anti-white, anti-male propaganda that breeds and feeds resentment. Membership has also surely grown because of Antifa extremists, acting like Mussolini’s fascist Black Shirts, screaming anti-fascist slogans and beating peaceful Americans. These Antifa actions have done more to swell the ranks of the white supremacists than all the speeches by Richard Spencer, David Duke, and others of their ilk. That is, undoubtedly, the goal of many who are promoting the Antifa agenda; they need a credible neo-Nazi threat to divert attention and channel emotions onto issues they can exploit.

FBI investigators said that members of American far-left groups such as Antifa traveled to the G20 summit in Germany in 2017 and met with leaders from ISIS and Al-Qaeda to plot the ‘destruction’ of President Trump.  A confidential ‘Informational Report’ by the FBI into violent ‘resistance’ groups such as Antifa has led to the disturbing discovery the U.S. radical groups are colluding with Middle Eastern terrorist groups to destabilize America.

Where do they get the money to travel and are they getting paid to riot. The answer to the second question is ‘yes’. As to the first, Communist groups bankrolled by sugar daddies like Tom Steyer and George Soros are throwing “$50 at the cannibals who are out there” (as Andy Zee, an Antifa organizer exposed by an undercover Project Veritas reporter, put it) to participate in anti-Trump “grassroots” protest movements. Before Antifa came into existence, Soros threw over $30 million to fund divisiveness in the Ferguson protests turned riots, after he bussed in hundreds of provocateurs.

Portland has one of the largest and most active populations of Antifa members in the United States , but travel on Soros and Steyer’s dime to wherever a good riot can be manufactured.

President Trump announced in May 2020 that the United States will be designating Antifa as a terrorist organization.

Antifa came out in full force and used the murder of George Floyd to destroy businesses and raze buildings to the ground. Project Veritas released an investigative report on the domestic terrorist group Antifa on June 4th, 2020 that reveals how the leftist terror group practices eye gouging, beating their opponents and create an environment of fear and terror. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien echoed Trump’s comments, saying the violence “is being driven by ‘Antifa.’” Attorney General William Barr announced in a statement that he will enforce action against the group, saying “violent radical elements” are hijacking legitimate protests to “pursue their own separate, violent, and extremist agenda.1

From this video HERE you can see Antifa is/was meeting in bookstores.

Appearing on The Eric Metaxas Radio Show, author and journalist Jack Posobiec previewed details about the move from his riveting book Antifa: Stories From Inside the Black Bloc

As Trump was trying to stop the rioting that was tearing apart cities in 2020, Attorney General William Barr labeled antifa simply “organized…revolutionaries.” FBI Director Christopher Wray was even worse, claiming “It’s not a group or an organization. It’s a movement or an ideology,” and that “folks who subscribe or identify” with antifa do not operate at a national level, but instead organize “regionally into small groups or nodes.” Barr also reportedly threatened to quit if President Trump fired Wray.
