Some might call this guerrilla warfare.
Recently, a reported member of Antifa took to social media concerned about cars that are failing to stop for them while they ‘protest.’
The woman in the video speaks about ways to keep their members and friends safe when a car fails to stop. She gleefully shows her audience a yellow device which she says you can clip on “your bag” and it just pulls off in an “emergency.”
This person then advises her audience how to use the device to break the windshield so that they have “access” to the car and the other end to use for cutting the seat belt.
Although she speaks of using it only in an emergency, she explains how the tool gives them access to the inside of the vehicle and the tool gives the ability to remove the seat belt off of an occupant.
What she meant was…. "i've seen some cars getting away when protesters tried to stop them, here's a tool which should hopefully smash their window and cut their seatbelt so we can drag them out and give them a beat down" problem solved 🤦♂️🤷♂️ pic.twitter.com/UtVqCLAHvX

This woman is reportedly part of a large group in which has been trying, sometimes successfully, to create anarchy. However, the group itself tries to spin themselves as peaceful in nature.
Antifa, short for anti-fascist, views themselves as a community-based movement “composed of individuals organizing against racial and economic injustice.”
Antifa believes that after President Trump was elected, there has been an increase of racist violence throughout the United States. They claim that these acts and imply that President Trump’s successful election has caused “white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan” to gain new members. They offer no evidence in order to support their claim.
The modern day Antifa, as we know it, appears to have started in Portland, Or around 2007. Since then, they have been active in acts of intimidating reporters, calling for the deaths of all officers, and participating in fights with right-wing groups. All down by cowards who wear masks so that no one easily identifies them.
In 2017, Antifa went to the “Unite the Right” rally in Virginia. Their members consistently clashed with members of the rally, trying to incite physical fights.
Unfortunately, during this rally, a self-described Neo-Nazi drove his vehicle into a crowd and killed one person who was in attendance. When President Trump weighed in on this tragedy, he pointed out that not all people who were in attendance were racist, bad, or evil.
Antifa, and a large amount of Americans and media, spun those words into meaning that the President supported the mainly racist rally. Antifa used this as a rallying cry to attract more members for their cause.
Recently, members of Antifa have been busy at most, if not all of the violent riots that have plagued the United States recently in the aftermath following the murder of George Floyd. It was not enough for them that police and prosecutors spared no time in terminating the employment for the officers involved and taking them into custody.
Antifa felt like they needed to take further action and help with taking over a police precinct.
In this situation, members of Antifa had bragged about militaristic efforts in combating the police while they were trying to maintain the peace and control of the situation. Antifa would have peaceful protesters, just the ones yelling and shouting at police, approach the line of officers.
As they officers stood by, armed members of Antifa, again masked, since they are cowards, came through the line and began throwing anything they could at the officers.
As the officers would move forward to address the violence, Antifa would back into the crowd and leave the peaceful protesters in front, forcing the police not to act. There efforts led to the successful overtaking of the local police precinct and several officers injured.
Members of Antifa are not worried about getting physically involved and inciting violence. By their own admission, they do not like America or what it stands for and believe that it needs to destroyed in order to remake it in their image.
Editorial: Antifa is a much greater danger than you realize. Just look at their organized attacks on police.
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Shortly after the tragic death of George Floyd, masses began to develop at what seemed at first as peaceful protests. These protests created the perfect starting point for those who have no other intentions other than to destroy, loot, and riot to descend upon the area of Minneapolis.
Inside of the masses of people who were in the area, another group of people, Antifa, also began to gather. If what members of Antifa says is true, that they are aimed at peacefully demonstrating and orchestrating change, that may not be alarming.
Antifa, for those that may not know, is believed to a be an idea, not a group, based upon being anti-fascist.
Being Antifa is mainly just a way to peacefully work against what they believe are far right-wing groups, following people around on the internet until they find something that in their minds, could be considered racist or fascist.
They then expose those people gleefully to the masses in hopes of ruining lives. You know, peacefully. If that was the worst of Antifa, so be it: After all, racism and sexism have no place in our civilized society. But that is not the end of it.
Imagine for a moment, that the large crowds that gather to protest are not just organized by members of Black Lives Matter. Imagine for a moment, that organized members of Antifa were behind the protests in certain areas, like in the overtaking of the Third Precinct in Minneapolis.
Recently, a blog on the site, CrimethInc, a site which appears to be a haven for anarchists, appeared an article written by someone not brave enough to list his/her name.
The blog speaks about how Antifa organized the masses in the crowd and utilized specialized tactics in defeating the police who were defending their precinct and businesses around that area.
The group would combine peaceful protesters intermixed with those who were willing to do violence. The underlying hope would either be for police to ultimately resort to defending themselves and hurting someone or just simply lose control, either outcome would work for them because, in today’s day and age, cops can no longer defend themselves without facing significant backlash from the media, and in some cases, through the courts.
It worked by the violent rioters breaking into the front of the crowds, throwing objects at police. As the police would advance toward the violent actors, they would retreat, like the cowards they are, behind the peaceful protesters who would walk in front of them. This would cause the police to back off since they did not want to hurt anyone who was not offering harm to them.
The rioters then began to destroy the buildings around the police precinct. The rioters also had volunteer medical personnel stationed throughout the area for those that were impacted by tear gas or any other less lethal implement. They would get fixed by medical personnel at the scene and return to fighting the police.
Days of these tactics continued until the police were depleted, both in energy and equipment. In the end, the police were ordered away from the building by the Mayor, retreating from the roof top, abandoning the building which had been set on fire.
The rioters winning in this fashion gave them a map to do this to other police buildings. This map they are publishing as a way to tell others how to accomplish what they have done.
Now it is not clear if or how many other police buildings will be attacked and overrun in this manner. What is clear is that there is definitely an organized structure behind the scenes, calling the shots and providing financial assistance.
This group never had the intention of “fighting” for social injustice, they merely have been training and waiting in the wings for their moment to strike. If the good people of America do not wake up and realize what is going on, we all will lose.
For something that’s “not a group,” they sure are starting to get a lot attention.
Here’s an editorial Law Enforcement Today brought you on the group earlier this week.
This editorial is written by a former Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
If there is any doubt that the United States needs to get out of the United Nations, or at the very least kick them out of our country, this is it.
On Friday, the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) posted the Antifa flag on their official Twitter account. According to Breitbart so-called “experts” at the UN slammed President Trump’s call to label the anarchist group as a terrorist organization. Mysteriously, the tweet has been deleted.
UN #HumanRights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing #Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”
Fortunately, the Allegheny GOP preserved the tweet:
The UN just came out in support of a multinational terrorist group.

Despite the fact that Antifa has been largely blamed for inflaming tensions at various “protests” around the country after the George Floyd incident, the fact that Antifa has largely been involved with taking over a six-block section of Seattle and claiming it as “an autonomous zone,” the United Nations claims that the president’s attempt to designate them a terrorist organization “undermines their right to peaceful assembly.”
You literally cannot make this stuff up.
So-called “human rights experts” at the UN expressed “profound concern over a recent statement by the U.S. Attorney General in which he described antifa and other so-called “anti-fascist activists” [talk about a contradiction in terms] as domestic terrorists, claiming that such a designation “undermines freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”
Not to mention the right to loot, burn down buildings, beat people up, and otherwise destroy property.
According to The Epoch Times, Attorney General Bill Barr said on May 31 that alleged violence tied in to the George Floyd protests being “carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”
Barr had previously said that the Department of Justice had evidence that Antifa and similar groups had been behind the violent activity, and said federal authorities were investigating individuals with ties to the group.
“We have some investigations underway and very focused investigations on certain individuals that relate to Antifa,” Barr said in a June 8 interview on Fox News.
“But in the…initial phase of identifying people and arresting them, they were arrested for crimes that don’t require us to identify a particular group or don’t necessitate that.”
One of the so-called experts cited in the UN statement was someone named Fionnuala Ni Aolain, who is the UN Special Rapporteur who basically works on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism…sounds important but basically this person just spouts anti-American gibberish.
Why you ask? Well her other job is working as the Board Chair of the Open Society Foundations Women Program. Does Open Society Foundations sound familiar? Open Society is funded by none other than billionaire socialist busybody George Soros. How weird is that?!?
Ni Aolain added that, “International human rights law protects the right to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly,” while adding that it was “regrettable that the United States has chosen to respond to the protests in a manner that undermines these fundamental rights.”
If you were ever in any doubt that so-called anti-fascists are in fact fascists, take a look at this photo. A gay Asian man (@MrAndyNgo) beaten up by Antifa thugs in Portland because he disagrees with their politics views. https://t.co/NLxbh7ITxC

We wonder what Andy Ngo would think about that.
The UN, which has countries such as Libya, Somalia and Venezuela on its Human Rights Council really has some chutzpah criticizing the United States about anything.
— Trump Supporter 🇺🇸 (@NeedTrump4Prez) June 21, 2020
The statement from the UN came about in part as a response to the statement of Attorney General Bill Barr’s statement that “violence committed by Antifa is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.” Sounds pretty legit.
The US has not yet taken legal action against Antifa since President Trump’s declaration that the group would be designated a terrorist organization. Aolain parroting the typical Soros-fed rhetoric said that “the loose use of terrorism rhetoric undermines legitimate protests and dampens freedom of expression in the United States, which has been a hallmark of U.S. constitutional values, and a beacon far beyond its shores.”
The criticism of the United States by the UN did not go unnoticed, with Twitter blowing up over the hypocrisy of the UN lecturing to the United States about human rights, with one person tweeting, “’Peaceful assembly’ lmao” “Defund the UN”
'Peaceful assembly' lmao
Defund the UN.

The UN’s reference to Antifa’s “alleged violence” would be funny if it weren’t so void of reality. The group’s history of resorting to violence, usually while hiding their faces behind masks and resorting to group thuggery, is well documented.
Antifa was clearly involved in the violent riots that have overtaken the country in the past three weeks, and their presence seems to be quite evident in the insurrectionist takeover of six blocks in downtown Seattle which has been called an “autonomous zone” with the name of CHAZ, or now CHOP.

Meanwhile in France, at least 24 people who were wearing the Antifa “Black Bloc” uniform were arrested after violent clashes with police.
Antifa and BLM are culturally enriching the shit out of France right now.

Last month, two Antifa members were arrested for buying firearms with the intent of murdering police officers in the French city of Lyon.

The aforementioned journalist Andy Ngo, in commenting on a violent Antifa demonstration in Germany last month told Breitbart London: “Observe how Antifa and far-left demonstrators who defy coronavirus health guidelines, sometimes violently, haven’t been treated with the same public contempt as conservative protesters asking for states to open up.”

“Far left extremists are empowered to be violent by the legitimacy and pass given to them by mainstream society and media,” Ngo concluded.
Portland wakes up to see what antifa did overnight. A century old statue of George Washington was toppled & set on fire with an American flag. “White fragility,” “Damn white men” & other messages are written on the moment. On the ground nearby: “Defund white men.” pic.twitter.com/zjrsZHJC9o

Epoch Times said that Antifa’s roots are traced back to the German “anti-fascist” movement, which was part of an attempt by the old Soviet Union to incite communist revolution in that country.

In the United States, while the group claims its members are fighting fascism, they themselves engage in fascist activities, with the group primarily consisting of communists, socialists and other far-left radicals who label anyone who disagrees with or refuses to identify with their hateful ideology as fascists, thereby justifying their use of violence against them.
