If you’ve become incredibly confused as to why not more is being done to stop Antifa, you’re not alone.
The far Left group continues to wreak havoc whenever it rears its head. Antifa has grown from a fringe group curiosity to one that constantly uses violence to spread its frightening cause.
The group has been further emboldened by the fact that Democratic leadership has turned a blind eye to its actions, as well as the fact that the mainstream media has unfathomably attempted to glamourize the group’s actions.
That’s finally starting to change. Leading politicians are beginning to condemn Antifa’s violent ways, and some mainstream outlets have started to shine a negative light in the group’s direction.
The Daily Wire passes along the news that Antifa is receiving other forms of attention as well.
Politico has gotten their hands on a “confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI,” in which authorities offer warnings about the rise of violent Antifa groups.
The outlet also conducted interviews with a “senior law enforcement official,” as well as a former member of the NYPD in order to supplement the report.
Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to [the joint assessment].
While it’s fantastic that Antifa is on the radar of federal law enforcement, frightening revelations reveal that the actions of the group could get far worse.
The spring 2016 assessment allegedly notes that some Antifa extremists have even gone overseas to train with similar groups, and that DHS and the FBI were worried that the evolution of “anti-fascist” violence could lead to terrorist acts, such as bombings.
While we have yet to experience the savagery of European-style anti-fascist attacks, Antifa aggression has indeed been sharpening. In August, a man was arrested after he allegedly attempted to plant explosives at the base of a Confederate monument in Houston.
Quite simply, the group needs to be reined in before further damage is caused.
Any outlet that attempts to glamourize the actions of Antifa needs to take a serious look in the mirror. There’s nothing admirable about advancing an agenda through violence and hate, and it’s beyond irresponsible to suggest that it is.
Be that as it may, the jig may slowly be coming up for Antifa. That can’t happen fast enough, but it remains alarming that it took so long to begin with.
