If you want people to take you seriously, it’s a good idea not to break their stuff, assault them, or display other attributes associated with being a thug.
That’s what the group that’s the darling of the Left does, and they’re getting seriously out of hand. Antifa is a violent alt-left group that bills itself as the ‘resistance,’ and the mainstream media continues to alternately applaud and turn a blind eye to its tactics. Reuters recently called the violent alt-left group “peace activists.”
Even more disturbingly, the actions of anti-Trump protesters are being portrayed as if they’re completely acceptable because America is supposedly so darn frustrated with the commander-in-chief.
Besides being patently absurd and offensive, what the media is doing is incredibly dangerous. Glorifying violence is the equivalent of giving a green light to attention seekers. Thugs get more emboldened when their actions are praised, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing happen with Antifa.
The group is growing, and new cells are popping up. A new one in Philadelphia sounds particularly disturbing.
As the Daily Caller shares, the new group “draws inspiration from convicted murderers and calls for violence against the police, theft of goods, and armed insurrection.”
“The destruction of black life continues unabated as millions languish in the plantations of the modern day slave system,” the group outlandishly claims. Antifa is sowing racial division to divide and conquer America, and usher in communism. Antifa was literally created by German communists.
Unfortunately, there’s people out there that will buy into this nonsense and join in. While their efforts will ultimately be a miserable failure, that doesn’t mean they can’t wreak havoc in the interim.
It’s high time for the mainstream media to stop glorifying these thugs. Additional attention by members of law enforcement into their ‘resistance’ efforts would be swell as well.
