A clandestine, and apparently on demand group named the Antifascism or Antifa has been in the news of late for the part its members have played in the recent KKK rallies and marches across the United States.
This group which has no known registered membership, but which has members gather as if out of thin air whenever they’re needed has been violently breaking up every KKK rally or march that has happened recently.
The group is currently saying via its websites that it will commit more violence across the United States on November 4. According to a release on their website, the aim of the November 4 action is to remove President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence from office.
Their release goes thus:
ON NOVEMBER 4, 2017:
“We will gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country, at first many thousands declaring that this whole regime is illegitimate and that we will not stop until our single demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
Our protest must grow day after day and night after night—thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions—determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power.
Our actions will reflect the values of respect for all of humanity and the world we want—in stark contrast to the hate and bigotry of the Trump/Pence fascist regime.
Our determination to persist and not back down will compel the whole world to take note. Every force and faction in the power structure would be forced to respond to our demand. The cracks and divisions among the powers already evident today will sharpen and widen. As we draw more and more people forward to stand up, all of this could lead to a situation where this illegitimate regime is removed from power.
Spread the word and organize now. Be a part of making history. Don’t let it be said that you stood aside when there was still a chance to stop a regime that imperils humanity and the Earth itself. Join in taking to the streets and the public squares day after day and night after night demonstrating that In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America.
On November 4, 2017, we will stand together with conviction and courage, overcoming fear and uncertainty, to insist that: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO!
In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!
This Nightmare Must End:
The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO!”
The claimed nightmares that must end are stated below.
“A Nightmare: Immigrants living in terror—their next step could mean detention, deportation, being torn from children and loved ones.
A Nightmare: Muslims and refugees demonized, banned and cast out.
A Nightmare: Millions—children, the elderly, the sick, the poor—denied healthcare, food assistance, the very right to live.
A Nightmare: Women objectified, degraded, and denied the basic right to control their own reproduction with fundamentalist Christian fascism increasingly being made law.
A Nightmare: LGBTQ people stigmatized, ostracized, and denied civil rights recently won.
A Nightmare: Black and Latino people openly threatened by the President, with maximum sentencing, stop-and-frisk going national, intensified police brutality and murder of our youth with no holds barred.
A Nightmare: People all over the world facing bombings, occupations, war and the threat of nuclear war with Donald Trump’s “America First” finger on the nuclear trigger.
A Nightmare: The truth bludgeoned—lies and more lies—critical thinking being destroyed in education and public discourse.
A Nightmare: The whole planet in peril from a regime that denies global warming and shreds all environmental protections.
A Nightmare: A regime step by step discarding basic democratic rights, targeting group after group, and suppressing dissent and resistance. A regime unleashing the violence of fascist thugs.”
“This is fascism—a qualitative change in how society is governed. History has shown that fascism must be stopped before it becomes too late.”
All emphases theirs.
The whole thing reads like a page from the Hillary Clinton led Democratic National Committee hand book on Trump fighting which makes you wonder who is really behind the action being carried out by this group. It’s also a list of everything that has been going on in America for decades, but which the establishment media has tried to blame on Trump since he was elected President. That’s the first hint that this group is likely a lot more than meets the eye.
Also, when you hear stories about how adverts for paid political agitators appearing on job sites like Craigslist, you begin to wonder about the authenticity and integrity of this group who has no known membership but seems to have no problems with finding people willing to risk their own lives carrying out these violent interventions.
Another reason to doubt the credibility of this group is when you see how the mainstream media is beginning to try and normalize it and the violence it carries out. CNN has a video which is clearly trying to paint this group of violent, faceless people as some kind of saviors out to save us all from the evil of President Trump.
The truth remains that these people are committing violence against other Americans and the only outcome from that, if it continues unchecked, is that the Americans being attacked will eventually find ways to begin to defend themselves anyway they can. Violence can only bring more violence, and no matter how you try to justify violence, it is still violence and can never bring peace.
Peace only comes when violence ends, so the idea of bringing peace through violence as this group claims they want to do is farcical. The major question, though, must be; who is behind the Antifa group, and who is using them at this moment?
