Despite attempts by the establishment media and politicians both in the Democrat and Republican Party, The New York Times admitted on Friday that part of Antifa’s agenda is to perpetrate violence against their enemies.

The New York Times interviewed a 27-year old Antifa activist known only by the alias Frank Sabaté after the infamous Spanish anarchist and how he planned on violently resisting the attendees at the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally.

“Unlike most of the counter-demonstrators in Charlottesville and elsewhere, members of Antifa have shown no qualms about using their fists, sticks or canisters of pepper spray to meet an array of right-wing antagonists whom they call a fascist threat to American democracy,” The Times wrote.

Another Antifa activist made it even more explicit to “the paper of record” that being violent was something the far-left group openly embraced.

“You need violence in order to protect nonviolence,” Emily Rose Nauert said to The Times. “That’s what’s very obviously necessary right now. It’s full-on war, basically.”

Despite the fact that Antifa has made it clear they support and embrace violence through their words and their actions, left-wing establishments like Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are insisting they don’t mean it.

“We’re against violence, just straight up,” said Heidi Beirich, director of the SPLC’s Intelligence Project, which tracks hate groups. “If you want to protest racists and anti-Semites, it needs to be peacefully and hopefully somewhere away from where those guys are rallying.”

Obviously Beirich wasn’t paying attention to Antifa’s violent actions against Trump supporters in Chicago, San Jose, or Berkeley.

Establishment Republicans including former Presidential nominee Mitt Romney and Sen. Marco Rubio also gave Antifa a pass. Rubio went so far as to saying that force was a justifiable response to hate speech.

    The despicably violent Antifa–the single greatest enemy of freedom of speech In America this century–is being lauded as some noble modern day version of the French Resistance by the MSM. You simply cannot parody liberals anymore. They are far too mind-blowingly shameless and ridiculous to satirize.

    • DaisyToo

      The MSA, largely illiterate when it comes to history, thinks of the French Revolution as throughly terrific.

      • David Watts

        That is a terrific comparison, Daisy: the French revolutionaries were like SJWs in many ways. They wanted to re-name the months, for instance (the old names glorified Roman oppressors!), which would mean today would’ve been the 45th of Cunegonde (or something). Real Orwellian and useful stuff like that. And all the little tools in Berkeley going around spray painting “A” with a circle around it, and talking about ‘anarchy,’ should read up on the Reign Of Terror: what anarchy really looks like in a modern western country. So rewarding for all concerned.

        • DaisyToo

          Out w the Old Boss in w the New Boss – the French Revolution doesn’t deserve to be reduced simply to that
          concretism. But the American Revolution truly ushered in actual freedom and liberty for the first time in human history.

    Answer violence with violence and see how these Antifa pukes like it…

    • paulbennun

      No, poppet. Antifa are answering violence with violence. You have it the wrong way round. Hope that helps 🙂

      • AlexCorvidae

        No Mrs. Doubtfire, you have your head on the wrong way round. Antifa trashed Berkley to stop a speaking engagement. Antifa members blindside people in the head with bikelocks. It was reported that many of the protesters in Charlottesville were openly carrying, that they had a lot of guns. When I say protesters I mean the ones who had a permit, the apparently “evil evil people” who must be stopped from a peaceful demonstration no matter the cost. Interestingly enough nobody was shot. Despite what Antifa believes you cannot preemptively act violently towards a group whose ideology you believe may lead to violence. Do I find the racist views of the white supremacy movement reprehensible and abhorrent, yes I do. Does that deny them their right to peaceably assemble, or to espouse their views, no it doesn’t. The tragic death of the young woman is murder, and the man responsible should be held accountable by the law. Also, to the OP answering Antifa violence with violence is exactly what the entire left wants. They want video that can be selectively edited to show President Trump supporters acting violently. Thus reinforcing the narrative they have been violent throughout the entire election through to now.

        • Blake B

          paulbennun…Good luck finding ANY protests or rallies put together by the alt-left that the alt-right go to attempting to shut down. It doesn’t happen. The alt-left are the terrorists in this country.

          Antifa starts violence either with violence or they antangonize. Then they want to call their target violent.

        Antifa attacks people, they have multiple times, and the times their intended victims fought back those gutless Commies tucked tail and ran.

        Antifa are violent trash, and anyone who defends them is a piece of garbage.

      • robineggblue82

        Antifa admitted themselves that they meet IDEAS with violence, and that its perfecty justified.

      • bookish1

        Milo’s supporters were not violent.

      • ShikokuPrincess91

        You need critical thinking skills.
        At no point have deplorables been violent outside of self defense.
        The whole purpose of the alt-left is to shut down an event with the threat of violence.
        Every one of them should be jailed and executed. Why your government doesn’t do that I don’t know. America is too lenient.

      • Roy Livingston

        You realize, poppet, that you sound like a complete idiot?

  • paulbennun

    Good lord, this is a daft post; dishonest, and containing poor logic. It is bad journalism.

    First of all the SPLC Intelligence Project quote is a response to a different question, and even the words the spokesperson uses has nothing to do with the force of the article; they don’t declaim Antifa, don’t claim to speak for Antifa, or in this quote, even *about* Antifa. It’s a very obvious, dishonest conflation of two ‘leftist’ groups. It tells us nothing; it’s just propaganda.

    More importantly, of course Antifa uses violence. Antifa never claimed otherwise. Antifa’s entire position is that violence can be met by violence—Milo may feel able to draw equivalency between people wearing swastikas, giving Hitler salutes, and saying “Jew will not replace us.” That aligns him with them. It doesn’t mean that Nazis marching on the streets shouldn’t be pushed back; if you don’t you end up where the road is taking you.

    Pearl-clutching, thin-skinned snowflakery is so present amongst the right. “B … b … b … why are they fighting us with violence? We only want to march down street saying we want to exterminate them all! No fair! Muh free speech!”.

    Anyway. Shitty journalism.

    • Steffy93

      Antifa members saying they are violent and that the organization relies on violence means they are peace-loving people?
      That must be some of that peculiar “liberal logic”.

      • paulbennun

        Amazing. Even when the problem with the article is pointed out, you fall for it.

        Do me a favour.

        Point out where I say they are peace-loving people?

        You … you don’t understand, do you?

        • David Watts

          The problem is the implication that violence used by Antifa is ONLY used as a reaction, a last resort, to perceived ‘violence’ already in existence on the alt-right. Then, you can get into a chicken-and-egg argument, I suppose, depending which way your bias leans. Who started the violence first? Is ‘hate speech’ equatable with looting a Starbucks? Do words equal actions, therefore, do words require “pushing back” with violence? Mileage varies.

        • Steffy93

          That’s the basis of the media created controversy.

          • paulbennun

            Explain.

          • Steffy93

            The “controversy” is that Trump said there were heople on the left that were violent – he condemned them along with the violent people on the right.
            The media is having a heart attack…they cannot believe that Trump dared to criticize the left. They claim that there is no violence on the left.
            I guess if you ignore all of the left’s violence over the last two years, you’d be totally right!

          • David Watts

            It’s cos the left’s violence is correct violence by the proper people — they tell us.

          • Steffy93

            The FBI didn’t think the black clad, armed criminals, throwing bricks and smashing windows, were “proper”.

          • David Watts

            Luckily. That’s called “doing their job.” They don’t take an ideological stance on thrown bricks or drawn knives, just a legal one. And that’s the “proper” stance.

          • Steffy93

            Of course the FBI does their job! That was my point.

        • James Lipton

          Antifa are misguided millennials who rationalize themselves on the moral high ground to justify, basically, just working out their general angst and frustration or inherent violent tendencies (based on the individual). These are the kids who never learned how to be productive so they try to validate themselves by employing their destructive “talents”.
          Worst of all, they are stupid and don’t know how to have a civil discussion or research and meditate on a subject to come to a thoughtful conclusion…. Or actually that’s the best thing about millennials if you ask the ones controlling them by feeding them the “correct” narrative and telling them to just LISTEN AND BELIEVE.

          Plus they are stupid. I mean… They are violent and that’s a problem but did I mention they are stupid? They censor free speech. That only risks to strengthen the speakers they hate as it elicits sympathy for those speakers from the public who thinks they are being bullied. So… Instead of the public hearing crazy people talk and seeing firsthand they are crazy, Antifa now let them NOT reveal their craziness and seem like a victim. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. Oh, and maybe do a little history studying to see how this is all relevant to remember to how the Nazis came to power in Germany.
          And really fucking think there about the point I’m trying to make. Because, and here’s a newsflash for Antifa, WE ALL (RIGHT, LEFF, AND CENTER) KNOW NAZIS ARE BAD. IN NO SCENARIO DO THEY RISE TO POWER. IF THEY BECAME A MILITIA AND MOBILIZED, THEY WOULD SNUFF THEM OUT WITH THE ARMY, NOT SEND ANTIFA TO HANDLE IT.
          And here’s where the problem is this week. Dimwit people and people who can only virtue signal have to condemn Nazis…. Again even though we all know and do already…. But are ignoring this other fascist group called Antifa and demonizing anyone who also condemns them. Because, god forbid, they break the more palatable good vs evil narrative and say something reasonable like “Hey, maybe these guys are fighting fascism with fascism and maybe we shouldn’t willfully put them in our blindspot?”

          Actually, the saddest thing is all this that I said will be lost on you. It’s just too late. People have seared their brand of opinion already and anything contrary to it is only heard as noise or hate speech. I mean…. In no words did I support Nazis or white supremacists or any kind of racists but that’s what you’ll claim to have heard and all cogent points will just go in one ear and out the other.

      Jews quite openly brag about exterminating whites and ending America as a white country. After two solid years of blatant anti-white “your children are going to be brown!” and “Make America Mexico Again!” attacks, while internet jews keep talking about how much they’re going to enjoy watching whites die off… and you liberals still have the gall to wonder why some of the more militant groups might have a problem with these kikes?

        I disagree with your comments on the Jews. They are not are enemy, they are our friends. No where do they go around and say “I hate white people”. They are the one group that receives more hate towards than any other group. I agree with you in what you said about Antifa, without the Jew part in it. Your comments about the Jews make you sound like you agree with the White Supremacist in their hate against the Jews.

            You really don’t even have a clue do you. You don’t even know what that means. You really hate the Jews don’t you? Below is copied over showing what was meant by the picture you posted. You really are a white Supremacist and anti-semitic. Sorry but you make me laugh and thank you for the laugh.

            “We do not hate you or anyone else for the color of her skin. What we hate is a system that confers privileges (and burdens) on people because of their color. It is not fair skin that makes people white; it is fair skin in a certain kind of society, one that attaches social importance to skin color. When we say we want to abolish the white race, we do not mean we want to exterminate people with fair skin. We mean that we want to do away with the social meaning of skin color, thereby abolishing the white race as a social category. Consider this parallel: To be against royalty does not mean wanting to kill the king. It means wanting to do away with crowns, thrones, titles, and the privileges attached to them. In our view, whiteness has a lot in common with royalty: they are both social formations that carry unearned advantages.”

          • AlexCorvidae

            I have absolutely no problem with your pointing out that Jews are not the enemy, and putting the quote into context. However I do very much argue with the idea represented by the quote. Japanese society favors the Japanese because they created it. Many majority Muslim countries favor Muslims. However nobody is bitching about Japanese privilege, or Muslim privilege. It’s only in western civilization created by primarily “white” people where the natural tendency to create systems that work for the peoples who created them is suddenly this evil thing that was created exclusively to disadvantage others. Especially considering the steps that have been taken to extend equality to everybody in western civilizations. People need to quit borrowing reasons to be offended today for something that occurred in the past. Maybe then we could have rational discussions about the problems that do exist in our society. But that would mean that all parties involved would have to accept that they are equal, and equality means no special considerations for anyone. Perhaps that is why certain groups are complaining and being indignantly offended by things that happened decades, sometimes centuries ago. It’s a way of keeping their special status.

          • GTKRWN

            “Oi vey goyim, when we say we want to abolish you we don’t really mean it. W-what do you mean why don’t we ever talk about ‘abolishing the black race’ or just ‘abolishing race’ instead of just always ‘abolish white people and white countries? Uh… erm… hey look at this anti-semite over here! This goy forgot the six million!”

            They had better find different wording for it. It does sound like that guy was talking about the entire White race. It is strange because that guy is White.

            I also am sick of people saying that the White Race can’t be proud of themselves….that’s ridiculous, every other gets too.

            As for Jewish people, well being Jewish is Not a Race. And most Jews I know are White!

            Now I was brought up that Jews and Christians are One, no matter what Race they are.

            I am mixed races and nationalities. I am a Trump Supporter and I blame the Lunatic Lying Filthy Lefty Libt4rds, of all races, for All of these problems/riots.

          • January

            I’m just tired of all the hate that is going on of each other. The crazy thing is it’s really just a handful of people that make it look bad for all the other races and religions. I believe in the majority of our people and they are good people.

            I was raised to not judge anybody by the color of their skin, their religion or the nationality but by what is inside them and that’s how I raised my children.

            I blocked GTKRWN. With all that is going on I don’t need somebody who seems to be so hateful towards Jewish people. I’ve read some of his other postings and he comes across anti-semitic. I’m a Christian and I call the Jewish people my Brothers & Sisters.

            I blame the left for what is going on but I really put a lot of the blame on the news media. As for White Supremacist, I wouldn’t even given them any coverage, ignore them by turning a deaf ear to them. If those protesters were smart they would have hired a bunch of live bands, put loud speakers up and drowned them out. In reality, those haters judgement day will come and that won’t be on this earth.

    • AlexCorvidae

      Because saying we want to exterminate them all isn’t violence. It’s just speech. However, if they are saying “let’s go exterminate them all” that would be an incitement to violence and is the only unprotected speech. We have the law, we don’t need Antifa. Antifa is largely populated by the generation of kids who were coddled and because of laws and “my feels” weren’t allowed to be properly disciplined and thusly dictated terms to their parents. Now they believe they can dictate terms to the rest of us. They are wrong. You can’t fight hate with hate, that just leaves everybody hating. You can’t beat somebody into being open minded. You can’t preemptively act violently to stop the expression of an ideology that could become violent. For example, everybody labels these white supremacists as Nazi’s. But they aren’t Nazi’s, even if they believe everything about the Nazi ideology. You know why they aren’t Nazis? Because they aren’t throwing people into concentration camps, they aren’t throwing people into ovens, they aren’t lining families against the sides of their homes and executing them. Nazis aren’t bad because of what they thought, they are bad because of what they did. Does anybody really believe that if they are allowed to hold a rally all of that I just listed is right around the corner? Does anybody really believe violence is justified because of the fear of what may, however unlikely, come to pass? That’s a really stupid precedent to set.

    • Lou Edi

      Seems to me Milo is contrasting SPLC’s statement about violent groups with their refusal to note down Antifa as a hate group?

      The position on the general right is that Nazis are scum, violent nazis should be met by the Law, but in addition, that violent antifas should also be met by the Law. That is not a statement of equivalency. It’s a statement that equality under the law still counts, and that even nazis still have the same rights as everybody else. Because that’s what rights are.

      The general Left&Establishment, in contrast, seems to state that because Nazis are scum, therefore any violence Antifa commits should not be met by the Law. I.E. a view that “repugnant” political views are grounds to have someone’s constitutional rights taken away.
      Now, I don’t think the Left actually believes that. However I am having a difficult time getting them to actually clarify this point… and quite a few seem to openly incite violence. So…not sure.

      • David Watts

        I’m waiting for a prominent left-wing figure to denounce ANTIFA. Since republicans are constantly being asked to denounce nazism, when it *should* be obvious that the percentage of right-leaning people who are your actual nazis are about .000000001%. This constant request to denounce the obviously already-denounced is like asking someone: “So: when did you stop beating your wife?” Infantile ‘gotcha’ games.

        • Lou Edi

          Easy to asnwer though. “duh, of course, I denounce them. Violent totalitarian ideologues are repugnant to what our country stands for… I’ll condemn the whole lot nazis, KKK, stalinists, jihadis, you name it, I denounce it. Bonus denouncement for the nazis because they’re particularly annoying and violent lately. Pretty sure we agree on all that, no?”

          Then just keep reminding them of whatever part of the sentence they try to conveniently forget. You won’t convince a radical leftist or Democrat, but you don’t need to. It’s the conservatives, alt-center and Bernie wing that you particularly want to get on your side. Basic business: some people will never buy your product, don’t waste time&money trying.

          • David Watts

            I have heard that only 10%, regardless of their political leanings, can be persuaded to change their mind on any issue. That’s pretty paltry. I would agree with you on that “Bonus denouncement for the nazis because they’re particularly annoying and violent lately.” Except for one thing:

            ANTIFA shows up, whether to protest or counter-protest = violence.
            ANTIFA doesn’t show up = no violence.

            That *seems* pretty clear-cut. A bunch of inbred-looking LARPers goose-stepping around, whistling “The Horst Wessel Song,” simply DOES NOT CONSTITUTE VIOLENCE, no matter how lame it is. I can’t say that enough, apparently. Bike locks, burnings, piss bottles, concrete bottles, knives, clubs, metal poles, bear spray, mace, lootings, vandalism: I would say all are closer to textbook definitions of violence than anything these neo-nazis do. But perhaps you aren’t in the 10% either. ????

          • Lou Edi

            And that’s why people keep thinking that you don’t really condemn the nazis. Have to be 100% clearcut to the point of “I’m not gonna waste another breath on them because anyone who thinks otherwise is insane anyway”.

            Only after that, can you continue on matters of disagreements: that even nazis do nonetheless still have their rights, and that tequil…I mean Antifa are a violent mob bordering on fascist terrorism.

            Might be your facts are more accurate, but in conversation you also have to convey those facts. As to whether it’s 10%… probably more, if you’re really good at it, but to a limited extent. 10% is huge in politics though.

    Antifa = Anti-capitalistic, anti-personal freedom (unless you agree with them) anti-spiritual, anti-point. Harbors a social superiority with lack of civility or natural intelligence. These dim bulbs (at best) can be characterized by, greasy hair, basement dwellings and being totally devoid of any style or attraction. Usually spotted lurking at night in large groups of marauding brainless idiots of like mind (or lack thereof) near a large University or College, anywhere they can find safety in shear numbers (because their pussy’s, minus the pussy hat, unless you call the rags covering their faces wannabe pussy hats) but has been known to venture out in the daylight to antagonize, mace women, light garbage cans and cop cars on fire at DJT rallies for money. Communist flag carrying P O S morons.

    ***Spoiler Alert – they are talking about Antifa***
    “FBI investigating identities of black-clad UC Berkeley rioters”

    “They came in a military fashion, they were well-rehearsed,” said UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof on the night of the protests. “They seemed armed and dangerous.”

    About 1,500 people were peacefully protesting against Yiannopoulos’s scheduled talk in the plaza when the group of black-clad protesters rushed onto campus en masse around 5:50 p.m. Within a few minutes, they had moved the metal barricades set up to create a space for those attending the talk to pass through, and had thrown several of the barriers through ground-floor windows. They also set a generator on fire, providing the dramatic images of the protest that have been flashed around the world. The black-clad protesters then occupied the area nearest the student union for most of the night while others stood on the steps of Sproul Hall or gathered further away.

    Later in the night, the agitators rampaged through downtown Berkeley, damaging numerous banks, a Starbucks, and branches of other national chains. John Caner, head of the Downtown Berkeley Association, said there was an estimated $400,000-$500,000 worth of damage to downtown. There was also some vandalism on Telegraph Avenue…

      Wouldn’t it be nice if the FBI made public exactly who funds antifa, BLM, etc?

      I know the Russians pour millions into extreme environmental groups. Could it be that one of the most admired Democrat criminals, George Soros, is colluding w.the Russians to support these neo-Stalinist organizations?

      How a group of such people can do things like that and not all be rounded up and processed by the county jail is puzzling to me.

    That is why the left is so angry about Trump calling the alt-left out. For the first time in years, main stream media and leftists will have to start paying attention to what the alt-left is doing.

    • AverageJoe1987

      It’s just the left.

      While the right hates the alt-right, no one on the left ever condemns Antifa. Ever. They make excuses for them at every turn and push the lie that Antifa is Anti-Fascist when they are just fascist garbage.

  • Rotov Michael

    The Antifa are propagating a right to use force against everyone thay preliminary have pictured as “fascists”. This logic is simple—before getting a cart blanch for any action towards some group you have to dehumanize people who are members of the group.

    When the left is in control of the media, which they are, responding to Antifa violence with violence, even in self defense, is always going to be a bad move. It will always be misrepresented.

    In these situations it’s the police’s responsibility to protect people and they are not doing, or at least not being allowed to do, their job. Everywhere that Antifa goes the police are stood down by Democrat authorities. Antifa then uses that as an excuse “we’re defending people because the police aren’t doing their job”.

    I am surprised that right oriented media aren’t asking more questions about that because it is happening again and again and again.

    • GTKRWN

      Targeting Antifa is useless anyway. They’re just puppets. You have to hunt their masters. Kill their media. Destroy their propaganda wing, cut off their funding.

      Of course, that’s what we have Nazis for… because it’s always fucking jews.

        Um…

        • ShikokuPrincess91

          He’s right. It is always (((them)))

  • AverageJoe1987

    It only took dozens of incidents of Antifa violence for a left-wing Fake News outlet to finally admit it.

  • DaisyToo

    Antifa and their Leftist followers are intent on abolishing the First Amendment as a first step towards abolishing the entire US Constitution. In this, and so many other matters, the neo-Stalinist Left shares common cause w/the neo-Nazi platform.

    Although the basic views of the Libertarian/Conservative right are held by the overwhelming majority of Americans, the totalitarian Left pretty much owns the media and the educational system. Which is a real problem. Trump, who routinely calls out the media for their bs, is the solution to that problem. MAGA.

    I really liked Marco Rubio at one time. I forgave his Gang of Eight and he was one of two candidates I wanted to win the nomination…this is unforgivable.

  • bookish1

    Surprised at the NYT.
    Not surprised at the SPLC, which should be designated a Hate Group in its own right.

  • AlexCorvidae

    What the hell happened in America. Social justice advocates of the 1960’s showed up to protest with a handful of flowers and love in their hearts. Social justice advocates of 2017 show up faces hidden armed with baseball bats, balloons filled with human excrement, a desire to do violence and hate in their hearts. Where did it all shift into a bizarre dark side of the mirror world?

    • Roy Livingston

      It all started with a little book written by Saul Alinsky, based on ideas borrowed from Vladimir Lenin…..heh now!

  • John Thomas

    I just wish they’d had the balls to show up somewhere where we can all get together and have a nice little discussion. Like, say, Sturgis in August.
