U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- There is a violent leftist uprising going on throughout the United States and also in Europe.

Most of the mainstream media sources has been ignoring this group, or they have reported it as just a “response to the alt-right”.

There seems to be a double standard when it comes to right wing vs left wing populist movements. To see this all you have to do is look no further than how Bernie Sanders was treated by the media vs how they treated President Trump. One was a hero of the people and the other was treated as some type of James Bond villain.

When the Tea Party began popping up during the early Obama years the media was quick to pin the “extremist” title to this groups. The media worried about Tea Party violence even though there was never any Tea Party violence. In fact the SPLC listed The Tea Party Patriots as an extremist organization although they are a purely political organization.The mainstream media has also been quick to pin violence on Trump supporters, but at the same time it seems to give those on the left a pass for their violent acts.

There is a group on the left called Antifa that really needs to be exposed. Antifa (Anti-fascist) is both communist/anarchist extremist and violent leftist. Their goal in the United States is to install a communist government and to shut down all speech they do not agree with. George Orwell, in his book 1984, warned us about the thought police, and this is exactly what Antifa is trying to become. They have gone as far as trying to kill people with bike locks in California, but since this group is a left wing organization working against Donald Trump most major media outlets seem silent on this issue.

(YouTube/@SHUTTERSHOT45)

The so called “Battle Of Berkeley” was the first time most people heard about the group Antifa and their violent tactics. In Berkeley California there were violent clashes between free speech advocates and Antifa antagonist who believe speech should be regulated. One Antifa member named Eric Clanton was arrested for three counts of assault with a deadly weapon for attacking defenseless people with a U shaped bike lock. This included a brutal hit to a victim's head as they were on their knees, execution style.

Although most people are just hearing about this group they have actually been around since the 1920s in Europe. They have a long and violent history throughout the world and have been tied to mass murderers such as Joseph Stalin of the USSR.

They have been operating since the mid nineties in the US and have grown since then. I have been following them since 2005 when I saw them commit acts of intimidation during the inauguration of George W Bush.

This is the information I have gathered on Antifa. I believe strongly that this information should be disseminated to all freedom loving Americans so they know and understand who they are fighting.

Antifa History

Neo-Antifa Hate Group Flag
Neo-Antifa Hate Group Flag

Antifa was formed when the Italian Socialist Party split in two in the year 1921. Two factions came out of this split. The first was the “National Fascist Party” which was lead by Benito Mussolini. Eric Hobsbawm, who is a world renowned historian and British Marxist, described fascism as “nationalism of the left.”

The other faction that came out of this split was a group of communist and anarchist called “Antifascist”. This second group is more commonly referred to as Antifa. Antifa of today is more like a “neo-Antifa” than the original Antifa of the 1920s much like neo-NAZIs are to the NAZIs of the 1940s.

Their flag is a red with a white circle. The circle is surrounded by a black border. Inside the circle is a black flag and a red flag. The black flag represents the flag of anarchism. The red flag represents the flag of communism. These flags together show the alliance to fight anything that they deem against their belief system.

Their true end goal is the installation of a Stalinist type government world wide by any means necessary(one world government).

In fact the national structure of Antifa is run through a front group called BAMN (By Any Means Necessary) ( www.bamn.com ). Their national leadership is located in the Berkeley, California area. BAMN was originally called the Revolutionary Workers League which was an openly communist organization. The name has changed, but their goals have not.

Antifa Organization Structure and Rules

The full name of BAMN is “The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary”, but it is usually shortened to just BAMN and is the face of Antifa. When you see an Antifa protest the members are getting their marching orders from the higher ups in BAMN. Since Antifa is a very secretive group BAMN is who speaks for them to the media. BAMN will claim to be non-violent unless provoked while ordering members of Antifa to carry out acts of violence and vandalism. BAMN uses this separation to appear legitimate.

BAMN By Any Means Necessary
BAMN By Any Means Necessary

BAMN is also the legal counsel for Antifa. They will respond to arrest of Antifa members by representing those members in court. BAMN has also been involved in defending Black Lives Matter members when they were arrested in San Francisco for blocking a road.

Local Antifa are separated into multiple groups depending on their roles. The “Black Bloc” are the protesters and disruptors you see wearing all black with mask covering their faces at opposition rallies. These are the agitators that are there to disrupt rallies and suppress their opposition’s voices. This group are further separated by three colors.

The first and most concerning sub group of Antifa are the red members. These Antifa members are the ones that commit various illegal acts of vandalism such as smashing the windows of a Starbucks in DC and use violence and fear as their main tool. These are the zealots of Antifa. They are willing to harm others and go to jail for their far left ideology. For example Jack Posobiec, DC bureau chief of The Rebel, was standing outside a college campus in DC. An Antifa member approached Posobiec and then attacked him. The attacker was a red member of Antifa.

The yellow members are the next group in Antifa. These people are the ones that help the red members evade the police and their victims by impeding whoever is after the red member. They are known to distract police and go as far as physically put themselves in between law enforcement officers and the red members. They also help distract the red member’s victim so the red member can have the element of surprise during their assault.

The final group are the green members. These people are not in on the tactics of the red members and are used as a smoke screen to conceal the red and yellow members. Almost all Antifa members start out as green members. They dress exactly like the red members. For example the red member will commit an assault on a victim. Then the yellow member will either distract law enforcement or the people chasing the red member. The red member will then flee into a group of green members where they can disappear.

Bike Bloc is another group of Antifa. These member are seen on bikes around parades and rallies. These members main job is to intimidate observers and opposition groups. Most if not all of these members would be considered red members and are usually very trusted members of the local Antifa groups.

Bike Bloc members are also there to keep their parades from being disrupted. One other thing they do is follow opposition members around during the Antifa rallies. When the Bike Bloc members feel that the opposition group is getting too close they will use their tactics to push back the opposition members away from the parade or rally.

Antifa Obligations

Antifa Scum Obligations List
Antifa Obligations List : screen-grab from howtoantifa.pdf

Antifa does have a set group of obligations that they expect all their members to follow. From my research I have found these to be uniform across the country. Most of their obligations are about disruption and intimidation.

The first thing Antifa groups must do is gather personal information on those they deem “the enemy” in their local area and release that information to the public to cause fear among their enemies. This also includes releasing information about the target’s family and work. Antifa are expected to harass their targets and try to disrupt their daily lives. SWATTing (using Skype to call the police and report a hostage situation or a murder at the victim’s house) and false reports to get the person fired from their jobs are just a couple of examples of the tactics that Antifa uses. They believe that people who don’t have the same ideas that they do are not entitled to a life. As one Antifa member put it, “revolution is messy”.

The second of the Antifa’s tenets is to oppose and disrupt any gathering of any group deemed “the enemy” by any means necessary. This means to show up to any rally, meet, or event held by a group they don’t agree with. This includes up to using violence and intimidation to disperse the gathering.

We have seen Antifa pepper spray, attack with clubs, throw explosives, and throw smoke bombs when trying to disrupt events in the past. In fact at the Deploraball in DC on the night of Trump’s inauguration several Antifa members were caught planning on releasing a chemical agent to disrupt the ball. Luckily this plan was disrupted before it could happen.

The third obligation is to support other groups deemed “anti-fascist”. This includes traveling to other rallies, attending other groups events (ex. World Workers Party), or helping out Antifa members that have been arrested by posting bail. BAMN has in the past come to the legal aid of arrested Antifa members.

To Antifa it doesn’t matter what crimes a person has committed, they are still viewed as a “comrade” as long as they committed their act in the name of Antifa. Antifa doesn’t have a moral compass when it comes to attacking people who lean right. They are cultish in a very real way. They are encouraged not to think for themselves. To Antifa is all about a collective or ignorant mindset.

The fourth obligation that all Antifa groups have and is no way negotiable is the non-cooperation with law enforcement under any circumstances. Antifa sees law enforcement as a tool of a repressive state and is not be trusted. It doesn’t matter what the act is they are not to talk to the police. There is no exception in any case to this rule. Police and other law enforcement agencies fall into the enemy category.

Members who are found to have helped police, or have condemned the violence of Antifa will be labeled collaborators and treated as enemies of the organization. Not only will they be shunned, but they will become a target of Antifa. This is another form of control that Antifa has over their members and brings them even closer to being a cult.

Antifa Recruiting Efforts

Antifa does not recruit by the open, public model. This is to prevent infiltration and to help keep the membership roles a secret.

They call their recruiting a “closed collective approach”. New members are not allowed to take part in any meeting or planning session until they are fully vetted. Antifa use this technique to weed out undercover informants that they fear that the US Government is trying to place in their groups.

Members that are teachers will also try to recruit their students. Students as young as sixth grade have been recruited. Antifa believes in indoctrination of young students. Antifa groups are starting to pop up across the country in schools. The recruitment is usually done through BAMN.

Antifa teachers will not only recruit students, but also offer extra credit to attend surrounding protest and marches. This is happening across the country even in Texas. This is not only happening in high schools and middle schools, but also on a lot of college campuses across the country.

Antifa  Anonymity

Antifa prefers to remain anonymous. They have a big fear of their enemies finding out who they are.

This is a weakness that can be exploited. They are extremely afraid of retaliation. In my dealings with Antifa members once you unmask them they have a tendency to fade away. Once an Antifa member went as far as to send me an apology after I sent him pictures of his house and car.

Antifa prefers Reddit for their online forums where they can remain anonymous. This is why there is a lack of real Antifa groups on Facebook. There are some but not many. They go as far as recommend that real names not be used. They think that by doing this they can fade away into the background after a disruption to avoid retaliation or arrest.

There is one exception to this rule. One person should be designated to be the semi public face of the Antifa cell, but that person should never admit they are a direct member of Antifa and only hint at being a member.

Antifa on Social Media

Antifa encourages it’s members not to use social media platforms. If a member feels that they must use social media Antifa pushes their members to use Twitter as a Facebook alternative. If a member does have a Facebook account they are encouraged not to post anything political at all on their Facebook walls.

Some members will have two Facebook profiles. One will be a non-political page and the other will be their “Antifa” profile. One profile I looked into was that of a loving father with a ordinary life. His profile was full of pictures of him and his kid. It looked like any other profile. There was nothing pointing to being a violent leftist.

He also had a second profile. This profile was not as family friendly. In the profile picture on this one he was wearing a mask. His wall was filled with hard core communist writings and Anti-American writings. He was calling for the overthrow of the US government and the installation of a communist world government. He was hiding his communist views on his profile under his real name, and thought by using anonymity on the second profile no one would be able to track him down.

I was able to track down his profile because he linked his phone number to his Antifa account and his email to his family friendly profile. In most cases Antifa members will not make the same mistake. Their profiles will not be as easy to find on Facebook.

Most Antifa pages on Facebook are fake, and these pages are set up mostly by trolls. Antifa members mostly use Reddit. Antifa believes this give them better anonymity over the use of Facebook. On Reddit there are multiple Antifa subreddits. This is where Antifa disseminates most of their information online.

Websites

Local groups are encouraged to have websites for the purpose of doxxing (releasing a person’s information such as names, addresses, family members, social media profiles, work, phone numbers…) of their enemies.

Local groups are not required to have a website or even a name. In fact I have found most Antifa groups use Twitter to release information to the public instead of using their own websites.

In Part 2 we will shed light on the technique and tools used by Antifa.

    1. Bring UZI’s to protest/rallies, and machining gun the punks in black. Every Aazi punk from antifa needs to die like the dogs they are.

    2. Best most accurate analysis I have seen yet. I would add a few things though.
      Antifa is NOT a subgroup of BAMN but rather the other way around.
      Antifa is a paramilitary umbrella group of “Revolutionary Syndicalism” which is a specific form of Socialism NOT Communism and NOT Marxism. Mussolini was in fact a Revolutionary Syndicalist and reformed the Fascist Party into a Revolutionary Syndicalist ideology based on the writings of Georges Sorel, father of Revolutionary Syndicalism and hero of Mussolini.
      Antifa has NO goal other than violence. It is a group of several different Syndicates. BAMN is ONE of those Syndicates and NOT the parent group.
      In fact, it appears to me the primary PARENT group is IWW Industrial Workers of the World. More specifically, the IWW general Defense Committee. IWW and CNT are Syndicalist unions.
      The Black and Red flag is Anarcho (or Revolutionary) Syndicalism. This is the color of IWW,
      Common symbols are the Red Front (RFB) Red Fist as well as the three arrows from Iron Front
      Black Cat “Wild Cat/General strike” and also a FIST for IWW and CNT
      National Lawyers Guild is the one providing legal defense for Antifa.
      You will see them in florescent green caps at all Antifa riots. If you were to go back and review footage, you will begin to notice the green ball caps of the National Lawyers Guild
      BAMN as you stated is “Defend Affirmative Action” Affirmative Action is the LEGAL, institutional, Systemic means of IDENTITY Syndicalism.
      ANtifa and the left in general are Revolutionary Identity Syndicalism

      1. Thank you for the in-depth analysis, but except for the purpose of following the money, it is irrelevant. Doesn’t matter whether they are fascist, anarchist, leftist, Nazi’s, Stalinists, Marxists, or whatever: At the street level where people work to pay their bills and those of their putative leaders, the ideologies are indistinguishable from each other. Totalitarianism is totalitarian.

    3. This link contains quite a few other BAMN names and info. https://pastebin.com/VVWi1MgB Also, California Secretary of State lists two dissolved corporations for BAMN with two more names and info. There is also a corporation registered in Oakland on the same street as the Benjamin Phillips address “By Any Dreams Necessary, Inc.” Their charity filing never went through. Follow the money. No registrations overtly under Antifa in California.

    4. Why would you choose George Orwell of all people to attack antifa?

      George Orwell was antifa incarnate. He fought in Spain to, and I quote, “fight against fascism.” He went to Spain to kill fascists. Out of all the factions in Spain, he favored the anarchists the most. In Homage to Catalonia, his autobigraphic memoirs of his time in Spain, he wrote “As far as my purely personal preferences went I would have liked to join the Anarchists.” To clear up any misconceptions about where he stood, he wrote in Why I Write “Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written directly or indirectly against totalitarianism and for Democratic Socialism as I understand it.”

      The man was a self described socialist, anti-fascist, voluntarily took up arms to fight against fascists, and favored anarchists.

      You could not have picked a worse example to use against antifa.

      1. Except that Antifa IS in word and deed, methods and ideology, 100% fascist. The name they picked is more smoke screen for outsiders, and lies to the simple minded they recruit.

        1. They are also as ignorant as a fence post, and that is an insult to fence posts. This evening (15JUL17) on Watter’s World there will be an interview with a goggle-eyed AntiFa fencepost when asked “Are you saying the horse that was stabbed in the neck was ‘racist’?” and he replies “Yes.” There are several other questions with answer that confirm the Crump article thesis that they believe that all the violence they are seen to be perpetrating on videos are “right-wing infiltrators” in their movement. When pressed, he will respond that “Well, even if we did it, it was in self-defense.” I would say “you can’t make this stuff up,” but obviously they are.

          1. Donald the Watters World interview was a prank. That kid has done several pranks and has a Youtube channel Big Kumba or something like that.

            1. Watter’s World is not given to pranks. If it was a prank, it was Watter’s World that was pranked.

    5. I consider anybody who wears a mask to conceal their identity to be a “Bad Guy”. So, I stop “Bad Guys” before they can hurt me or my family.

    6. I identify as neither a republican nor leftist democrat. I am a Constitutional Conservative first and foremost. None of these far left ideological groups actually came to forefront until the unesteemed lead from behind mulatto took office in ’09. Then, slowly we start seeing snippets of them, but not from msm. These outfits believe that thru their antagonistic outcries and subhuman demonstrations that those on the right who believe in their 1st amendment rights to assemble in peace can and will be intimidated by them. As stated here in an earlier comment, why don’t they, afa, go ahead and fire the first shot so that we can and will reinstitute the Constitution as the Supreme Law of our once proud nation put up or shut up. I have grown weary of all this anti Trump, anti right, anti gop rhetoric. This country has lost its solid footing and needs to be oh so very careful. Those of us here that know right from wrong also know and understand what it will take to reunify this nation. And it won’t be pretty. Pay attention to the socialist government called Khalifornistan, and you will see the wave headed nationwide. We must be vigilant and know when it’s time to Stand and Be Heard. Afa and their like believe they be the only ones allowed to commit acts of violence against people such as you n I. We need to be smarter, which shouldn’t be too hard. And but of course, start the indoctrination at a young age so their numbers grow.
      My friends, it’s gonna be a long uphill climb and we as Constitutionalists must persevere. It would be so mu h easier to just give these turds a case of PrepH thinking these pains in the asses will soon disappear. But this ain’t the case.
      Remain vigilant, watch your 6. God Bless America!

        1. And thats where you be wrong @wildbill. Don’t judge a book by its cover is the old adage. I’m a resident here Khalifornistan, and believe me when I tell you I ain’t a regular guy. I feel as you and the others of like mind, so don’t insult me.

    7. Javier: If Antifa is so anti-fascist, why do they use the exact same tactics that Hitler’s Brown Shirts used to shut down all opposition before he came to power in Germany? Shouting down speakers, attacking those who don’t “think” (I use the term loosely) like you, or talk like you, smashing things to intimidate people with whom you do not agree, beating up people who don’t agree with you, etc. If you are so Anti-Fasicist, why are you using ALL the Fascists tactics? People like you never read or learn from history, do you?

      I call bullshit. Anti-fa is a complete bunch of hateful, anarchist, communist/fascists, and cowards to boot. What a total bunch of liars. And you think you’re the “good guys”?!?!?!?

      Think again….oh…wait…I forgot….the only reason people like you have brains is to keep your skulls from imploding!

    8. I have an unconfirmed report as of this moment that the Supreme Court has on this date come down with a batch of VERY GOOD rulings that will stop a lot of the Cultural Marxism crap we have been enduring, and now we will wait with cheese on our tongue for the temper tantrums of the far-left and Antifa (but I repeat myself) to begin.

    9. Killing Nazi’s, an American tradition since 1941! I’d rather side with Antifa than with the Klan, the Traditional Workers Party, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists. If you’re not one of those, then why fear?

      1. Because that isn’t who they are attacking. I have no love for those groups. In part three you can see they even went after the ACLU. They also are targeting 3% groups as well.

        1. 3% groups have become a magnet for white supremacists, though many groups do maintain the original noble purpose of protecting the constitution. The people that Antifa have been fighting are the people with Nazi iconography tattooed on them, draped in an American flag, wearing spartan armor and shouting “MAGA!” If these white supremacists are considered victims, then the people rushing to their support are Nazi sympathizers.

          1. 1) Antifa is fascist
            2) Antifa is not killing ISIS
            3) Antifa preaches communism which is Authoritarian by nature
            4) The 3% is protecting NAZIs. Hence why every 3% group in Virginia is refusing to provide security for Richard Spencer in his elk during their march in Charlottesville.
            5) Every major 3% group bans racism. (3UP, The Three Percenters, AP3)

            1. Antifa is leftist, not fascist. Fascism judges people based on how they were born. Antifa judges people based on their decision to support white supremacy, terrorism/religious radicalism.

              You should do some research. Antifa has been doing good work killing ISIS. Things to research: International Freedom Battalion a leftist group kicking ISIS all the way to Raqqa, Ayşe Deniz Karacagil an Antifa woman commonly called the girl in the red scarf who died fighting ISIS, Bob Crow Brigade and English speaking antifa unit currently in combat with ISIS.

              Communism is not authoritarian by nature. Like many systems, including capitalism, it can lead to dictatorships. Also, I apologize for not clarifying, the three percenters in my area that are white supremacists wear patches with the roman numeral III with one I highlighted to show that they are one of only a third of three percenters that would fight for white supremacy.

            2. @Javier S, So you are saying that Antifa is fighting and killing ISIS. Where? And how do they get their weapons? Those wimpy protesters in the article’s photos don’t look like they could kill much of anything much less ISIS fighters that have armored vehicles. Are you sure about all of this?

            3. @JavierSoportar: To compare IFB in Syria with Antifa here in the US is similar to mixing weather and climate. The little bastards with Antifa don’t care who they hurt, whose property they destroy or whose lives they ruin. They are, in the truest sense of the words, domestic terrorists and should be sentenced as such. Their manifesto preaches hatred of ALL authority and destruction of our society in favor of one that has, throughout the world’s history, failed. Join them and you to will share the same fate eventually.

          2. B.S., Jason. “AntiFa” is fighting anything and everything having to do with the liberties our nation was founded to preserve and protect without exception. Aside from the specific areas in which you are in egregious error, there is also the fact that it doesn’t make a damned bit of difference whether you live under a fascist dictatorship or a Marxist dictatorship or a dozen other dictatorships: At the street level it doesn’t make a nickel’s worth of difference whether the neighborhood political officer warlord is a Marxist or a Fascist or a Democrat or a Republican; he’s there not because he gives a damned nickel for your ideology; he’s there because he revels in absolute life and death power over you.
            Furthermore Marxism is very definitely, by its very nature, an oppressive tyrannical regime and every damned agency of it currently being espoused by Marxist Mafia apparatchiks (Democrat leadership and undercover operatives) is a tyrannical oppressive agency in violation of our Constitution. In reading your arrogant and incredibly ignorant missive above it is abundantly clear you are either one of the Marxist agitprop operatives or you have fallen under the spell of one, which makes you one of those follower V. I. Lenin called his “useful idiots.”
            The United States of America is the first nation in the world to establish a government in which Marxism, Communism, Socialism, and Fascism are flatly illegal, and I strongly recommend you look into that and start supporting it. Otherwise you are an enemy of everything an American worth his liberty holds dear.

      2. So you’d rather side with those who would take away your rights eh? Guess we’ll look for you on the field. I’ll be on the side of those fighting for Liberty.

        1. Take away whose rights? Those calling for ethnic cleansing? Then sure, they aren’t using protected speech. If you side with the Nazis, then you stand to be counted with every atrocity they have and will commit. Antifa is fighting ISIS and has suffered many dead to the fight against those conservative radicals.

          1. Antifa is not fighting ISIS. Freedom of Speech protects unpopular speech. Antifa wants speech they do not agree with banned

          2. @Javier S, You seem to be mixing some alleged foreign fighting with some really old historic European politics, and some vague protesters in the United States.

          3. No one is calling for “ethnic cleansing,” you idiot, except the liberals who are demanding Trump and/or Republicans be assassinated.

          4. Javier, WOULD you like to go hunting with me. I think we could have a quality talk alone, far from civilization in the woods…………………….

          5. Javier, you need to stop writing, do some thinking and research before you write something as stupid as “Antifa is fighting ISIS and has suffered many dead to the fight against conservative radicals.” That maybe the dumbest thing I have ever heard or seen. Which is hard to do, since I have been watching a collection of Maxine Waters greatest hits.

        2. I’d rather side with Trump supporters than these ANTIFA fu*kwits, so, I pledge my allegiance to Donald Trump and our pro gun and self defense brethren as I am a dedicated meat eating, criminal and terrorist hating, gun, freedom and flag loving pro gun and self defense British Lion, patriot, Deplorable and Trump supporter as I have been from being a youngster. I will gladly stand at your side and have your back in the fight against these little libtard ANTIFA c*ckwomble scum fu*k communist sh*t twinkle toed c*cksucking crybaby bitch snowflakes. F*ck ANTIFA and fu*k communism. TRUMP 2020.

      3. You are an idiot plain and simple for siding with Antifa.
        You are against freedom and liberty. I will fight for my freedom and liberty.
        These people are fools

        1. I am against the Klan and Neo-Nazis. I am for Antifa, who is actually fighting fascism in America and waging war against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. They actually want to fight against right/authoritarian organizations. Antifa is killing ISIS, what are 3%’ers doing? Supporting nazis.

          1. ANTIFA is FASCIST, you hammerhead. They are “fighting in Iraq? What are you smoking? The “3percenters” are fighting to restore the Constitution.

            1. Antifa has been doing good work killing ISIS. There are several groups fighting alongside the Kurds on the front lines such as International Freedom Battalion a leftist group kicking ISIS all the way to Raqqa. Recently a young woman died fighting to avenge the brutalization of Yazidi Christians in northern Iraq; her name was Ayşe Deniz Karacagil an Antifa woman commonly called the girl in the red scarf (her Antifa symbol), who died fighting ISIS. There is also the Bob Crow Brigade an English speaking Antifa unit currently in combat with ISIS.

            2. (Sandy, this guy is apparently unaware than “AntiFa” operating in the United States would be happy as clams to have ISIS holding their reins — and I think he has been totally misled by some AntiFa operative in the U.S. trying to recruit him by lying through his teeth, which is what the Marxist-Leninist AntiFa does. I don’t believe anyone calling themselves “AntiFa” has been fighting alongside the Kurds or anywhere else in the sandpit over there.)

          2. You are nothing but a libturd, and a effing idiot. You don’t deserve the freedom others died to allow you to have! Pray I never run in to you in one of your protests, and I catch you being violent. I will give you a great reason NEVER to show up again, and learn true history. You are nothing but a brain dead, mind numbed robot, who thinks and believes the only thing the lame stream media tells you. You will not live long. First of all, you could fight your way out of a wet paper bag, let alone load a weapon and shoot it. I just wish you little fagots would pick your weapons up, and start the civil war. IT WILL NOT LAST MORE THAN A COUPLE OF WEEKS!!! AND YOUR TYPE WILL BE ELIMINATED, So THAT FREE MEN AND WOMEN MAY HAVE THE LIBERTY THAT OTHERS SHED THEIR BLOOD FOR!!!! NOW!!! Go back to your little dark corner of the world, before you get stomped into a pile of manure…. a communist hack is all you are!!!

            1. Kim, can I ask you to put the name of whoever you are responding to in your post? When a notification of it is received by email, there is no way to tell to whom you are speaking. I appreciate your sentiments, by the way.

      4. Antifa is LEFT WING….KLAN is LEFT WING….NAZIs and fascists are LEFT WING, right of marxists, but still LEFT WING…why don’t you side with Constitutionalists, or are you an illegal alien?

        1. Klan is right authoritarian. Nazi’s are right authoritarian (as Mussolini stated, corporatism in which the state empowers a certain race and empowers industry over collectivism). Left authoritarian would be someone like Stalin. Antifa are left libertarian (aka anarcho-socialists). I think this constitution should be defended at all costs against the forces of fascism calling for ethnic purity. I think the constitution should be defended against the tyranny of religious rule by people such as ISIS.

          Also, why am I an illegal alien? My family has lived in the United States since the 19th century.

          1. no….the KLAN was started and run by DEMOCRATS. NAZIS and FASCISTS are LEFT WING, right of communism, but still LEFT WING – they all have collectivism in their governments….Constitutional Republics DO NOT. Learn HISTORY

            1. The Klan was started by Democrats, who, up until Nixon, were southern conservatives. Southern conservatives switched after Nixon leading to Republicans becoming the conservatives. Democrat and Republican have changed meanings, but conservatives are still conservatives and liberals are still liberals. Leftists dislike liberals for being to dependent on big government and big business. Liberals are centrists not Leftists. The Klan was created by conservatives of the fascist spectrum that wanted to conserve ‘white supremacy.’ The history of it is quite interesting. Luckily for the US northern liberals in the form of Theodore Roosevelt and others fought for social and economic protections for under represented groups.

            2. @Javier S, You sure have a lot of terms for us to learn, so that we will know what you are talking about. Kinda puts you in the leadership role. I don’t believe that I will be spending my time learning your terminology or your view of history.

            3. Look up the southern strategy. Nixon backed this as shown in documents in his presidential library. “In American politics, the southern strategy was a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans.”

            4. When it gets down to this level there is no ‘reply’ button for J.S., so I have to reply to him here. This is for him, Sandy, not for you: Javier, the “leftist” (read Marxist-Leninist” insurgency started in America as a result of COMINTERN IN 1925. You are like so many Americans who have been dumbed down by the psychologists who learned their Marxist techniques from Lavrenty Beria, at the University of Moscow in the 1930’s, and came back to the States to infiltrate every institution our nation holds dear, including the public school system. Let me illustrate to you exactly how far off the beam you are: I am a Constitutionalist and I have been studying our government, and what it is supposed to be, versus what it actually is, since 1974. I will tell you this in absolutely certain terms: The United States Constitution is the straight down the middle of the road moderate position on everything. It allows you to deviate from its principles as far as you wish in either direction as long as you don’t advocate violence or the overthrow of the U.S. government or your State government.
              AntiFa is most certainly NOT “libertarian.” Nothing they have said or done would lead anyone with a brain in their head to think they were “libertarian.” The only reason you believe the crap you are spouting is because you have been pounded with Marxist agitprop since you were five years old and you have no clue about reality. Here’s a clue: Libertarians believe in a pie-in-the-sky government in which no one violates anyone’s rights, and everyone respects everyone else’s rights, and there is no public property because EVERYTHING is privately owned (which means no one has the right to travel) and people should have the right to get drunk if they want, get high if they want, rock ‘n’ roll full-auto machine gun on a city street if they want, so long as they don’t hurt anyone — ignoring, for their self-serving purposes, that someone is ALWAYS going to get hurt by such behavior. Unfortunately, also, most people today who call themselves “libertarians” are actually anarchists, in which no one has any rights because only superior force enforces rights.
              You need to wise up and move your ideology to the centrist position, because claiming the Marxist position is central is pure-dee B.S. (Or maybe it has illegally become so, but it is not lawfully so.)

          2. Mussolini was never a Nazi. You seem to have a sliding scale for all these groups. Did you make this up yourself? You think that the Constitution should be defended at all costs, but sympathize with a group that calls itself AntiFirstAmendment?

            1. @WB Me thinks he doth protest too much. Typical radical say anything even something you don’t believe, just cause confusion.

            2. @OV, yeah, I’m not sure about him, yet, myself. I think that I will reserve judgement until he has written more.

            3. “AntiFa” refers to “Anti-Fascist,” not “Anti-First Amendment.” But you are right in another sense because they most certainly ARE “Anti-First Amendment” and Anti-Every Other Amendment as well as the U.S. Constitution.

          3. “Anarco-socialist…………so you want the government to allow and help build anarchy? JAVIER, DO yo even know the definition of “Anarchy” You are truly ignorant in all sense of the word on all topics you try to talk about. Just stop, you’re wrong and you know it.

      5. @Javier, Whose side would one be on, if he did not sympathize with any of those? You sure seem to know a lot about the lunatic fringe.

        1. Then you would be a centrist. People like Hillary, Nancy Pelosi, etc. who are fine with just criticizing Nazis, Antifa, and ISIS without doing anything about either. There’s a great song that makes fun of these liberals by Phil Ochs called ‘Love me, I’m a liberal.’

          1. That paragraph alone reveals the fact you know absolutely nothing about political ideologies, Javier. Nothing at all.

            1. Donald, my reference was for that little fascist BASTARD, javier… Please accept my deepest apologies, if you took it was for you. It was not. It is very obvious, that you and I are of the same mind set, and see th need to help neutralize these little pigs, as soon as possible. I pray I don’t have to, but when it starts, I WILL be on the front lines, honoring the oath I swore to uphold. SO HELP ME GOD!!!

    10. This “Antifa/BAMN” thing is a right wing fiction. Plug “Antifa” into the CNN search function and there are NO returns. Same with MSNBC. Seriously. Check it yourself. And if CNN and MSNBC don’t admit to it’s existence, how can Antifa be a threat?
      I live across the river from Portland, and I have to assume that the children in black at all the demonstrations are some kind of Leftist order of celibate monks…

      1. Yes, I’m being sarcastic. However, I’m serious about Antifa being officially invisible to the MSM. This SHOULD be headline news on Fox, and on Trump Tweets from the White House, but it is not. Imagine the s***storm if Trump were to tweet that little fact…
        My solution for Antifa, (And I’ve seen them at Pioneer Square in Portland, up close.), is excessive, and includes their parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, pets, their house, and the graves of their ancestors…

      2. JonasCord: If you depend on the Communist News Network and their sycophants at MSNBC for facts you depend on, you are going to find yourself devoid of any facts at all when anyone challenges you — as I am doing now: Even the grossly-manipulated-for-money Wikipedia defines “Antifa” accurately:

        “Anti-fascism is opposition to fascist ideologies, groups and individuals. The anti-fascist movement began in a few European countries in the 1920s, and eventually spread to other countries around the world.”

        1. Donald L. Cline : Anti-fa certainly makes use of Fascist methods in their efforts to to be “Anti” Fascist. Maybe some lessons on Hitler’s Brownshirts and their methods are in order for pitiful Javier. Also, do you think Javier has ever heard of the Civil Rights Act of 1958, and just how his heroes and his “enemies” voted? Rahm Emanuel’s attack on his own dinner steak and his tirade about die die die?

          I’ve wondered how the idiots justified playing dress up to shut down free speech (again, Javier, see Nazi Brownshirts). At the University of Alabama, they dressed up in ninja jammies, and one had a wooden sword, shoulderpads, a black vest, and a garbage can lid painted with some emblem or another (Javier’s mention of it but applying it to conservatives made me laugh), to attend a conservative’s presentation.

          Alabama law says it is illegal to attend any public gathering with your face covered – you know, like when wearing a white pointy hood? – so the police were stopping the Antifa-crowd and “unmasking” them. Youtube video is really funny. Antifa is pretty lame. Cops were great though. The idea of the antifa pajama boys actually fighting in a war type theater of any kind would be funny if it wasnt’ such a ridiculous claim. And I notice he doesn’t provide a single link to back up any of his ridiculous claims.

          This poor pathetic Javier Soportar is probably the best educated of the bunch.

          Which bring me to the very scariest part – how did that many people get that indoctrinated while living in the “information age” of the internet, free education, free college, free TV news, free radio news and talk shows. WE should all be very worried that his twisted ideas are even possible, outside a mental institution. Well, then there’s the public, state supported, schools.

          1. How did that many people get that indoctrinated …”? Because the “free education, free college, free TV news, free radio news and talk shows” have all been infiltrated by leftist apparatchiks and their useful idiots. It had been growing since COMINTERN in 1925, and as each generation is indoctrinated, the following generation gets even more indoctrination and less training in critical thinking. You will not that the biggest complaint from the ‘politically correct’ class, claims of racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. ad nauseum, are complaints about “critical thinking,” aka “discrimination,” aka “evaluative thinking.” The object is to dumb everyone down to the point of accepting whatever pablum the manipulators want the masses to accept: “Just sit down, shut your face, do your work, and lick my boots” is their objective.

    11. The day will come when one of these crazies will pick on a permit holder and make the fatal mistake of hitting him or her with a bike lock. Time to outlaw bike locks. It appears they operate in areas that are anti gun because they have researched this and found out it easier to mame and cripple people who have no right of self defence.
      Intelligence is not one of their strong suits.

    12. First I’d heard of these guys was when Berserkeley went berserk. Thought they were some newly formed anarchist group, not very well organised.

      With this article, I find this is a serious and formidable group. How long will it be before they combine forces with local juhadis? At THAT point things will get “interesting” VERY quickly. Let us hope Trump will not lay down and roll over, or, far worse, come to the aid of these miscreant traitors. Seems like these guys are very craftily and determinedly seeking to overthrow the legitimate government of the US. The COnstitution defines that as “treason”. It is the ONLY crime name and described in the US Constitutioin. It would warm the cockles of my heart to see such as these be tried and convicted of that crime.

      1. Uh, no. The Constitution does not define “seeking to overthrow the legitimate government of the U.S.” as Treason, though in certain circumstances it may about to the same thing. Unlike some other countries, where speaking or even acting to overthrow the king is illegal, we have the right of free speech and assembly and protest. The Constitution says: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Article III, Section 3, Clause 1, U.S. Const. And it requires testimony of two witness of the same overt act or confession in open court.

      2. I’m pretty sure counterfeiting was in there somewhere too, right after the bit about “gold and silver specie” or some such archaic nonsense (/s). I’m also pretty sure the penalty for both offenses was the same.

        Given the way things have been going for the past few decades, is it any wonder we have both a pack of ferals calling themselves AntiFa running around outside destroying everything they can, while inside we have the Federal Reserve counterfeiting their asses off – and NOBODY AT ALL has gone to prison?

        Keep stacking and stay frosty, my friends. Our moment can’t be too far off.

        1. Mike S. (Congress shall have power…) “To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the securities and current Coin of the United States; ” Article I Section 8 Clause 6, U.S. Const.
          The punishment is not necessarily the same; the Constitution leaves the punishment of each up to Congress. Of course, that was before the federal government committed mutiny against the States that created it and deprived States of their suffrage in the Senate without their Consent in egregious and flagrant violation of Article V. The federal government now derives no lawful authority from the States, the People, or the Constitution, so it is difficult to discern any limitations on what it does.

          1. That’s likely the best response and explanation I’ve ever received, and I’ve been circulating in this discussion space for awhile now. Thank you.
            So that actually leads me to a quandary of sorts. If the feddies are technically illegitimate, does that mean that the oaths many of us took in the presence of federal officials to support and defend the United States and its Constitution were rendered contractually void upon execution due to one party not being lawfully authorized to execute the oath? Hmm…

    13. The primary difference between Democrats and the NAZIs is that the NAZIs never accused their victims of being the fascists.

    14. Its time for a lot of dancing VE veteran. These damn people are gonna poke us one too many times and its gonna be on.

      1. I’m just waiting for the clock to tick down. It will and these ass clowns are in for a rude awakening. Like it was said at Lexington. ” Do not fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war then let it begin here.” Capt. Parker – April 19th, 1775.

        1. I don’t want things to go there. I don’t want to see this garbage going on in my own country, this country.

          If conservatives, like the folks here, were to respond in kind to the morons in Antifa it won’t last long, but it will be ugly.

          Makes me appreciate the sentiment behind Sec Mattis’s statement to the “warlords” back when he was an active General. Something to the effect of:
          I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. I’m beggin you, with tears in my eyes, don’t f^&k with me, or I’ll kill you all.

    15. Lunatic Fringe.

      Lunatic fringe is a term used to characterize members of a political or social movement as extremists with eccentric or fanatical views. The term was popularized by Theodore Roosevelt, who wrote in 1913 that, “Every reform movement has a lunatic fringe.” 1.

      The current climate reminds me of the opening passage of an H. P. Lovecraft story:

      “I do not recall distinctly when it began, but it was months ago. The general tension was horrible. To a season of political and social upheaval was added a strange and brooding apprehension of hideous physical danger; a danger widespread and all-embracing, such a danger as may be imagined only in the most terrible phantasms of the night.” 2.

      The fools who riot, spread fake news, and leak information along with the celebrities who explicitly or implicitly threaten the lives of people who don’t agree with them, and threaten to blow up government buildings are creating a problem for the nation and ultimately for themselves of Brobdingnagian proportions. 3.

      Thank you,
      Wes Tilson

    16. Time has come to dance, they are calling the dance, we’ll call the tune. They only think they’re tough, they don’t know what pain is yet. But they’re going to learn.

      1. True enough. One of these days they’ll ve pulling their typical snot-schtick in an area where the gummit have not yet managed to disarm the local population. Some antifa thug will pull out his nuclear bike lock, smack someone on the head with it, crumpling him to the ground, then as he turns to make whan dang dingy on his next vitcim Mr. Colt, and his good friends the Messrs Smith and Wesson will trump that bike lock. The guy won’t be around to GET arrested.

        I hoped that, when these clowns were making a mess of downtown Portland Oregon such a fate might have met some of them. In Oregon Mother May I Cards are dispensed on an “you ask you get” unless you are a prohibited person. Not so much IN Portland, but surrouging areas, many do go about armed on a daily basis. Few such live in the Pearl or Downtown districts of Portland, though, and are intelligent enough to not voluntarily go into troubled areas. As these clowns escalate their nefarious campaign, that will change. If they tried such tactics in, say, Clackamas or Tigard, I do believe the outcome would be different than in the Pearl.

        1. I wonder how many Germans, in the early 1930’s said that same thing about Hitler. That NO one in their right mind would ever support anyone with such loony ideas.

          We’ve been ignoring what’s been coming out of our universities in the areas of politics, sociology, psychology, and education training since the late 50’s, thinking they were anomalies and that they were part of the lunatic fringe. In the late 50’s and 60’s they were. Not anymore. Those students grew up, got jobs in the only place that would have them – education, community organizing, psychology, journalism and politics. No accountability professions.

          I don’t believe loons like Javier here are nearly as much the exception as I wish they were, because the educated became the educators. Here we are.

      2. I too am a VE Veteran (Army), and you are quite correct. Antifa will indeed learn… the Hard Way.

        I do not remember an expiration date (“Sunset Clause”) on my Oath to defend this country from all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC…

        Old, I may be… but I will never suffer from lack of patriotism or lack of determination.

        1. JoeUSooner: (Sooner as in Oklahoma? Go Longhorns!) Will you, can you, as a trained, patriotic Veteran, which in my mind makes you discerning, thoughtful and capable, use your experience against something as insane and lame as this Antifa crowd?

          The public will be convinced this is a police problem, and those of you who have military training will, most likely, be excluded from being part of the solution to the fungus they are quickly becoming. They will learn and adapt their methods to police intervention procedure.
          This will happen while their government hacks do their best to disarm citizens. That’s why they don’t care about the thuggery having weapons. The violent thuggery in big cities are a potential asset for them, not a liability.

          I’m getting old and cranky I guess.

          1. pj… LOL, you’re no crankier than I am, my friend! And yes, anything as crazy – and dangerous to my family (as Antifa unquestionably remains) – is indeed well-within the scope of my efforts to protect my family… regardless of ANY existing anti-gun laws.

            You nailed it. Many members of the general public will (as they always do, especially on both coasts) ignore their own familial responsibilities, and will look to police to “handle it.” I greatly respect those officers – and there are a lot of them here in Oklahoma – who willingly accept that task. Luckily, in this part of the country, I’ve found that the majority of LEOs are willing to accept (and in fact, desire) help from responsible citizens when the manure impacts the oscillator. Hopefully, you’ve found a similarly positive “public-to-law enforcement” relationship in Texas.

            By the way, congratulations on your new Longhorn football coach! Excellent choice, and the rivalry should be terrific for years to come. I’m in Oklahoma City, and I look forward to perhaps meeting you… maybe we could watch a game or two together…
