The Antifa riots and incidents during the summer and fall were a lot more serious than this rather benign takeover of the Capitol building, but the Antifa rioters were given a pass, while the identified protesters of the Capitol building are being prosecuted rigorously. What a disparity! Clearly shows who controls the media. Making Antifa legit means that political violence is now the norm in American politics.
Liberals who endorse Antifa and the radical trend in the BLM movement are just fools — well meaning perhaps but fools nevertheless.
Has the BLM movement been co-opted by anarchists? If so, how many liberals who support this movement don’t realize what they are now supporting?
What is there to like about Antifa? Nothing.
What many Never Trumpers don’t realize is that they are in bed with actual anarchists who would like to see nothing better than the complete destruction of the United States. The real danger to the country isn’t on the right but on the left.
Hopefully, Seattle won’t turn into another Kent State. But this time, I would be on the side of the authorities and the police. Antifa and anarchists are domestic terrorists, in my opinion. Yet if they go in with real force and many die, it would shock the country, just like Kent State did. Nevertheless, the standard needs to be protest yes, riot no, and you don’t get to take over through mob rule — that’s not democracy.
The real fighters for liberty are in Hong Kong, not with Antifa.
