SEATTLE, WA– While the rest of us are working this pandemic, some hauling medical supplies and groceries, others treating and testing people, others maintaining law and order, ANTIFA has decided that now would be a good time to ratchet up hate and violence.
Because that’s exactly what our country needs right now.
Ironic name choice, of course, in that “anti-fascists” ARE the very fascists the anti-fascists claim to work against. They regularly oppress people through threats and violence, damage and destruction, easily costing people their lives, injuries, and business losses.
The left group of accepted thugs,
Antifa, promises violence in response to coronavirus lockdowns. Democrat ran city protects them.

According to Michio Hasai of the NOQ Report, while millions of Americans are on edge over the Wuhan virus, subsequent economic downturn, and political responses to both that include “stay at home” mandates for many areas, unofficial domestic terrorist group ANTIFA has some members promising to turn violent as a result.
Andy Ngo, Editor-at-Large for The Post Millennial, has been the tip of the spear in outing ANTIFA for months. He follows their moves and, perhaps more importantly, their Twitter accounts to discern their plans and expose their radical ideology.
The group claims to be against fascism but has demonstrated the use of fascist tactics to promote their agenda.
Now, that agenda may include (once again) turning violent:
“At level 5 we suit up and fight back. I’ll not be locked anywhere but a prison cell by murdering pigs free to come and go as they please while we are locked into our homes and neighborhoods. Get ready…”
"Salish Sea Black Flag" is Jaymie Jamison aka Nicholas James Armstrong (the #AntifaTerrorist who has been Stalking, Assaulting and Harassing me for the last year).
Jaymie is an EXTREMELY Violent Individual and I have zero doubt "They" plan to Riot and use Violence Against ppl. pic.twitter.com/FhPTtu1rIG

Ironically, while ANTIFA member Jaymie Jamison (aka Nicholas James Armstrong) is making his threats about using rifles, he can’t legally own a firearm, according to King County, Washington court records.

This is a developing story – Seattle area folks especially remain aware as you travel about for your work.
Law Enforcement Today has reported on the ridiculousness and violence of ANTIFA for years. Last month, they were (again) causing major problems in Portland, Oregon.
Portland’s mayor is not going to do anything. It is apparent that state officials aren’t either. So, what now? Someone has to step in and do something.
The domestic terrorist group Antifa is at it again. They literally run the streets of Portland. The police departments hands are tied from slowing them down.
In fact, on Saturday, the officers who tried to intervene were eventually chased away by Antifa members throwing eggs, rocks and bottles at the officers. Members of the Portland Police Bureau went across the street and stayed there.
And as the police watch, powerless to act, Antifa members deface a war memorial with graffiti saying things such as, “F— Cops” and “All cops are bastards.”
Three arrests were made.

But it gets worse than just the graffiti. Independent journalist Brandon Brown was attacked for the second time in two months. He was poked with umbrellas, pushed, grabbed, kicked, hit with rocks and eggs, and finally, he was sprayed in the face with “bear spray,” a form of mace intended to hurt and blind attacking bears.
It isn’t just in Portland. Back in December in Seattle, at the same protest where Brandon Brown was originally attacked and had his equipment stolen, police were told to stand down.
Whenever you have some event that pertains to anything pro-police, or pro-Trump, or really anything that is a gathering of those right-of-center; you can count on the likes of Antifa to make an appearance and act like buffoons.
Just yesterday in Seattle, Washington, Pro-Trump activists held a “Mega MAGA March” that was crashed by the soy-milk infused likes of Antifa.
In a video that was released by New2Share’s YouTube channel (seen below), we’re immediately regaled with some black clad protesters who are attempting to ignite a Blue Lives Matter flag directly in front of the police.
Despite the copious number of unsavory things said throughout the over nine-minute video that would make most cringe, there was a moment of levity when police sprayed the ignited flag (and protesters) with a flame retardant to stop the initial burning.
However, from that point on, the demonstrators become more aggressive, and more intolerant toward police and those in support of the march.
Antifa members began following those who were participating in the march, claiming that those who are in support of Trump are “fascists” and likened Trump to Hitler by referring to him as the “fuhrer”.
Sources tell Law Enforcement Today that the administration within the Seattle police department has made it very clear… officers are not to “disrupt” the protestors.
“We’ve been instructed to let Antifa do their thing… up to and including physical violence. We can only step in when people really start getting hurt. It’s unreal,” said one officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
At one point during the video, police were enforcing what is commonly known as a “bike line” to thwart the Antifa demonstrators from making their way into the conservative march.
Considering the amount of videos that have cropped up over the past 3 or 4 years, where leftists attacked conservatives for simply being conservative, police had no intention of Seattle hosting that kind of fray.
Apparently one social justice warrior during the video was suffering from some sort of mental breakdown, as that is the only way to logically describe the woman adorned in a green hoodie who was having a conniption episode.
While clamoring in cadence with a heard, but unseen, drum; this “brave” young woman screamed about kids being put in cages and how we need to arrest our leaders. The nonsensical rant was akin to when you deny your toddler candy at the checkout counter of a store.
At one point, cameras caught one of the Antifa members berating an African American police officer, saying:
“They don’t give a f*** about you. They hope we do some s*** to the cops. You are their fodder.”
The Antifa member was likely implying that the conservatives like law enforcement getting assaulted by Antifa, because then conservative can say, “look at what they did now”.
However, conservatives don’t like being able to provide examples of extremism committed by Antifa, because even when they do, nothing much happens or changes.
If you’re like myself, it’s difficult to watch these kinds of videos and interactions and not get mad. As a reformed felon, seeing innocent people being terrorized by black-clad goons in the streets evokes a feeling that makes me want to reconsider abiding by the laws governing assault and battery.
These peaceful marches and gatherings of conservatives, that are habitually being countered by Antifa, are becoming more and more violent. So how are conservatives supposed to congregate without being harangued wherever they assemble: do we act in a way similar to those harassing us or do we take the high road as we’ve done thus far?
It’s impossible to really know how to move forward to allow peaceful gatherings to ensue for those right of center. Centrists, libertarians, republicans and conservatives have every right to convene without having to worry about being screamed at for a red hat or a thin blue line shirt.
At the end of the day, people have to start fighting back against Antifa.
