It’s safe to say the New York Times likely would not publish a full-page ad from the American Nazi Party or even from someone as far from the center as Richard Spencer.

But on Nov. 1, the Times had no problem publishing an ad from the communist front group Refuse Fascism promoting mass protests designed to drive President Trump from power.

The decision is ironic because the Times is running stories critical of media outlets that ran Russian ads and tweets from Russian activists during the 2016 election, even though the Russian effort was directed against Trump as much as Hillary Clinton.

The group Refuse Fascism bragged about its Times ad on its website Thursday, proclaiming “Welcome New York Times readers!” and inviting donations. Actors and pop culture figures such as Michael Shannon and D.L. Hughley have also pledged support for the effort.

However, Refuse Fascism is simply a front group for the Revolutionary Communist Party. The Revolutionary Communist Party explicitly opposes the existence of the United States and has drafted a “Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America,” outlining ambitions beyond ending the Trump administration. The RCP is notorious for hosting burnings of the American flag and chanting “Two-four-six-eight, America was never great!”

Now, media outlets that have sought to expose tenuous “links” between the conservative movement and figures it designates as “far right” are promoting the Revolutionary Communist Party.

The Huffington Post recently published an article from Carl Dix, who is identified as the “co-initiator” of Refuse Fascism.

Only by clicking through to his biography page is he also identified as the national spokesman for the Revolutionary Communist Party. His Twitter account also describes him as “an advocate of Bob Avakian’s New Communism.”

The RCP is well-known for building a cult of personality around Avakian, its leader. The website of “Refuse Fascism” eagerly promotes a talk by Avakian as one “full of substance, and heart” about the “threat to humanity itself posted by the Trump/Pence regime.”

It’s not the first time the RCP has taken out an ad in the New York Times. It also ran an ad in the paper on Jan. 4 before President Trump’s inauguration, urging “protests that don’t stop.”

Inauguration Day was marked by widespread property destruction, fires and attacks on Trump supporters in the nation’s capital.

Astonishingly, mainstream media outlets such as Newsweek have allowed Refuse Fascism activists to claim without rebuttal that their group has no relationship with the Revolutionary Communist Party.

For example, Sunsara Taylor, a well-known activist of the Revolutionary Communist Party, made the claim in Newsweek, even though she is one of the organizers of Refuse Fascism.

The black-clad, left-wing terrorist group known as “antifa” is likely to be a major force at the protests. Indeed, the entire ideological justification of the protests is for Americans to “refuse fascism,” which matches seamlessly with the supposed need for “anti-fascists.”

However, as the WND special investigation “Antifa: What Americans Need To Know About the Alt-Left” shows, “anti-fascism” has always simply been a brand for existing communist and anarchist activists.

“In its origins, antifa wasn’t even a separate concept, just a front group for already existing leftists,” the report says. “And today’s antifa draws its symbols, insignia and philosophy most directly to the far-left groups that arose in interwar Germany … to put it another way, every American neo-Nazi may be using the logo from a German political party of the 1930s – but so is every anti-fascist.”

“Anti-fascism” has also served as the ideological justification for practically every communist movement. For example, East Germany’s notorious Berlin Wall was called the “Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart” by the communist government. It suited the description about as well as East Germany’s proper name (the “German Democratic Republic”) suited the country’s form of government.

Nonetheless, despite almost a century of shameless deception, the mainstream media often allows antifa to continue the charade.

For example, Vice’s Donovan Fairley recently penned an article about the supposed struggles faced by members of antifa “Black Blocs.” A “Black Bloc” is a group of protesters who dress in black and “mask up” so they can commit crimes and assaults without being identified.

Farley’s Twitter feed features obscenity-laden complaints about “typically awful cis white dude w/ head in the sand horse s***”. (“Cis” is leftist jargon for a human being who isn’t confused about what sex he or she is.)

The upcoming protests on Nov. 4 are thus simply the latest chapter of a very old story.

As the WND Special Report notes:

“Antifa” is a brand. It was created as a front group for communists … from the days of the KPD’s [the German Communist Party’s] original “Antifacist Action” to the “Refuse Fascism” coalition opposing President Trump headed by the Revolutionary Communist Party, “anti-fascism” has always just been a propaganda term for the communists. Rather than “opposing fascism,” the primary goal has always been to advance the murderous ideology of the radical left through violence.

The only question is whether “antifa” are working on behalf of a specific communist party (as during the days of the Red Front in prewar Germany) or on behalf of a more decentralized movement. Either way, for conservatives and libertarians, the slogan antifa brandished during the recent Hamburg riots should be considered an apt warning – “Welcome To Hell.” And as the Trump presidency has shown thus far, even if you are not fascist, even if you claim to be against fascism, if you are a conservative, antifa are coming for you.
