antifa

The masked left-wing extremists known as “antifa” are notorious in the United States. But it’s nothing compared to what already exists in Europe.

“Welcome To Hell” read the antifa banners during the G20 riots in Hamburg over the summer. Antifa groups in Europe are better organized and funded than their American counterparts and are far more willing to resort to violence. Indeed, antifa groups proudly air footage of their violent activities.

Most recently, antifa attacked a building owned by “Identitarians” in Germany who oppose mass immigration. Dozens of bricks and inflammatory devices were used against the building, which isn’t just a space for right-wing political activity but a home for some activists. Even acid was brought in.

Some American conservative and libertarian activists who have dealt personally with antifa worry such tactics are coming to America. Lauren Southern is a well-known Internet personality and libertarian journalist who recently had her speech at the University of Minnesota disrupted by hundreds of antifa activists.

But Southern says her experience, so far, is nothing compared to what is happening in Europe.

In a new documentary from filmmaker Trevor Loudon and the Capital Research Center, “America Under Siege,” Southern says Europeans are living in terror of the far-left on the continent.

“They have places in Germany, entire cities that I’ve gone to, that are known as ‘antifa towns,'” said Southern. “There are stickers everywhere, they [the German government] can’t set up police stations there or they will be shut down and razed and attacked by this militant group. And they’ve just become a thing since Trump’s election in America. They’ve really just started to get a wave of popularity there. And I’m worried it’s going to get as bad as it is in Europe.

“I was interviewing a young man in Germany who begged to blur his face, to distort [the sound of] the interview. He wasn’t saying anything particularly offensive. Something that would be a moderate idea in America. But he was so afraid because he said the antifa in Germany would put you on their website and on their lists and might hurt his child. They might go after his job, his livelihood. They might crash his home. There are plenty of stories of the homes of ‘fascists’ being raided and their things being smashed.”

And practically everyone in the world is a “fascist” according to antifa.

The WND Special Report “Antifa: What Americans Need to Know about the Alt-Left” observes antifa activists have an extremely broad definition of what constitutes “fascism.”

It notes:

“The irony is that for all the talk of revolution and a glorious victory in the years ahead, ‘fascism’ is defined so broadly by the antifa that it can never truly be defeated. Demonizing concepts such as ‘heteronormativity’ or conventional patriotism create a system in which almost everyone in the world is guilty of the invented sins of ‘racism’ and ‘fascism.’ The list of enemies to be slaughtered and killed grows inevitably from members of actual fascist parties to supporters of the current president of the United States or people who don’t support mass Third World immigration. By definition, sntifa must have enemies which can be dehumanized as evil and dangerous, otherwise they lose their whole reason for existence.

“Thus, antifa are in a position of waging a never-ending war against the overwhelming majority of their own fellow citizens, a counter-insurgency which will last until the end of days. Even if the ‘far right’ is completely crushed, new enemies will be invented, new targets for violence and self-righteous retribution. After all, antifa claim the right not only to tell people what they can say or listen to, but even who they are allowed to associate with or have as friends.”

The “alt-left” has been around for decades, but conservatives have remained ignorant.

Every single American is under threat – don’t remain ignorant about the leftists who openly declare they are coming for your freedoms.

As Southern notes, the media has conditioned Americans to “kill Nazis,” which is especially dangerous when practically every Republican in America is suddenly redefined into being a “Nazi.”

“You have to understand, to my generation growing up watching movies like ‘Indiana Jones,’ the coolest thing in the world is to punch or kill a Nazi,” said Southern. “We watched ‘Inglorious Basterds,’ which is, ‘get me 100 Nazi scalps!’ And then we grow up through this inauguration, through this election cycle, and we’re in the university, in the media, in all the popular culture, that ‘Donald Trump is Hitler.’ His supporters, those red caps? They might as well be swastika armbands. What are you supposed to do? If you are told [this] is going to be the rise of a man who you are taught has killed millions and millions of people. How are you supposed to react to that? The only logical response to that is to go and try to stop it by any means necessary.”

“Just kill them all,” adds conservative commentator Gavin McGinnes in the documentary, summarizing the logical conclusion of media propaganda. “Kill Trump. Let’s kill all these Nazis. And again, Trump is a Nazi and everyone who voted for him is a Nazi. So, I don’t know, let’s kill 100 million people, as Marxists are wont to do, all for their utopia that they haven’t planned out yet.”

Narrator Trevor Loudon, an internationally renowned researcher and lecturer and the host of the documentary “The Enemies Within,” contends the Democratic Party is enabling antifa violence.

“In America, almost all antifa violence has occurred in cities where the police are reined in by far-left, Democrat controlled city councils,” said Loudon in the documentary. “Boston, New York, Washington D.C., Charlottesville, Virginia, Portland, Oregon, Oakland, San Francisco, Berkeley, California. We found evidence of considerable antifa/Democrat interaction.

“Sometimes, those ties are personal,” Loudon points out, reminding the audience the son of former Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine was arrested for disrupting a Trump rally.

The pattern of official support for militant leftism is even more solidified in Germany.

“Sheltered, nurtured and funded by left wing city councils, antifa became well-established across Germany, especially in the former Communist east,” Loudon notes in the documentary.

Antifa are attempting to rise to the prominence their counterparts have in Europe on Nov. 4, with demonstrations nationwide designed to “drive” the Trump administration out of power. The umbrella group Refuse Fascism, which is hosting the protests, is a front group for the Revolutionary Communist Party. Though the mainstream media is largely silent about the nature of the group behind the event, the Revolutionary Communist Party is an openly anti-American organization that has openly called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.
