January 20th 2018: I blame Claude Taylor for the attack on a 56-year-old man. This former associate of the Bill Clinton White House tweeted out the location for Mike Cernovich’s A Night For Freedom event. “Please DO NOT share this address with anyone, even a friend, and do not post it on social media. We don’t want people calling or emailing to harass the venue,” the email says.
It was supposed to be a fun night. Something that recaptured the entertainment of Deploraball the year before. Instead of Washington DC though, A Night For Freedom happened at the FREQ Club in New York City. A saving grace of a place. Able to host at the last-minute after the first choice cancelled. Over 500 people attended. There were some lovely panels. Jared Holt, BuzzFeed, and HuffPost people were all in attendance. Apparently they like to torture themselves. Roughly 80 Antifa crashed the party and someone got hurt. People blamed Chelsea Manning after the fact, but upon looking into it that notion is baseless. The following day after the attack happened, Claude Taylor has the balls to deny responsibility. “Oh, puleeze. And what the hell is Antifa anyway?” Bullshit. An innocent man’s blood is on your hands, Claude Taylor.
The assailant was Antifa member David Campbell, a 30-year-old from Brooklyn. David’s assortment of charges: loitering, resisting arrest, assaulting a cop, possession of a weapon, and assault for strangling a guy. “I saw him hit the old man,” a witness told NY Daily News. “One hit. He swung hard. He hit him hard. The old man’s head hit the curb.” The immediate aftermath of the attack was captured by Jonathan Levine. At the 3:40 mark you can see Antifa go crazy that Levine is filming. Two others suffered injuries. They tried jumping James O’ Keefe as he was leaving. “These guys are f—–g terrorists,” Cernovich said. It took nearly two years. But in October 2019 Campbell pleaded guilty and was given an 18 month prison sentence.

February 2nd 2018: Jacob Rees-Mogg got sucked into a fight at University of West England as protesters showed up to ambush his speaking event. Student Witness Testimony: “There were about 300 people and the lecture theatre was full. It was the biggest political event at UWE ever. Suddenly 12 protesters wearing black balaclavas and masks burst in through an insecure back door. It was very intimidating for all of the students.” Each side tried blaming the other.

March 3rd 2018: Roughly $100,000 in damage to shops on Locke Street in Hamilton, Ontario. Done by a group of Anarchists on a late night bender, as evidence points to a book fair meeting that happened earlier on. That’s on top of photos and video evidence. Police report of the incident says there were no injuries but windows were shattered and vehicles were damaged by a group calling themselves “ungovernables.” Anarchist Peter Hopperton was arrested for it the next month.

March 5th 2018: Sargon tried to have a talk with Yaron Brook at the King’s College London. It didn’t go over so good after Antifa ambushed the event. A video from Sargon covers the entire evening. They pulled a fire alarm and there was a brief scuffle in which Sargon ended up getting an Antifa flag as a trophy. Sargon’s opponents accuse him of being an “alt-right mouthpiece” and boasted about shutting the event down. (Breitbart) (Daily Caller) (Reason) (Washington Examiner) (RT) (Daily Mail) (Telegraph)
March 5th 2018: Christina Sommers wanted to do an event at the Lewis and Clark Law School over in Portland, Oregon. The National Lawyer’s Guild didn’t like that idea. The local chapter put out a letter saying that her “free discourse” is a lie. That Sommers was somehow invalid because she supported MRAs and knew Milo Yiannopoulos. Christina Sommers was somehow fueling reactionaries by her simple critique of third-wave feminism. The National Lawyer’s Guild led a protest at her event. Here’s a YouTube video showing what this looked like. “Mic check. We choose. To protest. Male supremacy. Not give it. A platform. Christina Sommers. Has repeatedly. Delegitimized. The suffering of women. Worldwide. We believe. Our siblings. And our comrades. Women are not. Liars with victim mentalities. Rape culture is not a myth. Microaggressions are real. The gender wage gap is real.” One girl had a “stay woke” jacket. The protest mob barraged Sommers with questions and screamed things like “WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?” at her. A so-called Diversity Dean present at the event forced Christina to cut her speech short. Andy Ngo documented the chaos of the evening.

March 5th 2018: It was a big day for protests. Alongside Sargon and Sommers, Jordan Peterson did a talk at Queen’s University that was heavily protested. It was called “The Rising Tide of Compelled Speech in Canada,” and a group of 150 people worked hard to prove that point. This is compared to the roughly 900 attendees who gathered inside Grant Hall at Queen’s University. Also, good marketing for Peterson’s newly published book 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. “Lock them in and burn it down” the protesters chanted. (Seriously. Here’s proof of that.) A couple of people made their way into the lecture hall and jumped up on stage to interrupt the event.
One woman went around the side of the building hall where everyone was gathered, and broke a window. She fled the scene, resisted arrest, and police found a weapon in her backpack when they brought her in. “What terrible things are going through the mind of someone who brings a garrotte to a demonstration?” tweeted Dr. Peterson. The protest organizer, Claire Constance, told one media outlet it was racist to arrest the window attacker. “We must remember that Indigenous Peoples are unable to trust police given the police track record for anti-Indigenous violence,” she said. Much of the vitriol and anger surrounding him in the first place came from his public opposition to Bill C-16, and the state-forced usage of gendered pronouns.

March 25th 2018: Antifa firebombs a Turkish mosque in Kassel, Germany. We know this because the group took credit for it and explained their motives. According to them, members of the far-right Great Unity Party of Turkey used that building. The big picture being this mosque arson happened because of the clash with the Turkish military in Northern Syria. (Breitbart) (hna.de)
June 3rd 2018: Both Patriot Prayer and Antifa planned rallies. The latter’s was put together by a couple of groups: Direct Action Alliance and Empower Portland. Patriot Prayer’s protest was titled “Tiny’s Freedom March.” It was apparently a farewell event for group member Tiny, as he was soon returning home to Samoa. The opposition, titled “Call to Resist Patriot Prayer Bringing Nazis to Portland.” People, and you reading, are used to seeing this by now. These events include the usual standoff: the Left and Right staring each other down, separated by the cops. “FUCK ANTIFA” one t-shirt declared. In what’s supposed to be a demonstration of First Amendment rights, devolving into a war brawl where blood is spilled and blows exchanged. With Antifa burning the American flag. Joey Gibson was there. Some chick named Haley Adams was there. She ends up hosting a #HimToo rally later in the year.
“30 or so rightwingers and around 200 leftwingers exchanged blows, streams of pepper spray and insults,” says The Guardian’s Jason Wilson.
“Officers have observed multiple fights at today’s events. People are encouraged to leave the area for their safety due to the violent behavior of demonstrators at Terry Schrunk Plaza and Chapman and Lownsdale Squares,” said Portland Police. They don’t sound thrilled to have to deal with this crap again. Their job is to act like Shepards all day: separating a pack of innocent gazelles or sheep separate from the wolves. Which animal representing which group all depends on your political outlook. They bicker and argue. Freelance journalist Mikeford Biziths captured the spiraling rabbit hole of the day’s spectacle. The difficulty Portland Police had when keeping both sides apart, pepper spray coming out, one fight, two fights, Antifa throwing things like rocks. Yes. Antifa threw rocks at the political opponents. If it sounds like “same old, same old” by now, you’re not alone. At least one Proud Boy was tired of this too. How often can people get hit in the back of the head and pepper sprayed a dozen times? The cops made four arrests (two from each side) and confiscated the usual sort of fireworks and weaponry. One guy shouted “IM COMPLIANT” as the police hauled him off. All the day did was further fuel propaganda and tensions.

June 12th 2018: There was a by-election in Lewisham East, over in the UK. They held something called a “hustings,” which to translate into American means a town hall sort of meeting. An angry mob of 150 Antifa, with the coordination of an organization called “Stand Up To Racism,” disrupted the event. Interlopers barged in to disrupt a speech by UKIP’s David Kurten, accusing him of being racist. “Last night’s episode when the Lewisham East by-election hustings were closed down by a far-left mob was a chilling event reminiscent of Hitler’s brownshirts who used violence and intimidation to shut down opposition parties and opponents,” he told Breitbart London. The Labour candidate Janet Daby didn’t even bother to show up to debate because she believed that would tacitly legitimize the “Far Right.” “83-year-old Doreen came down to ask a question at the #lewishameast #hustings but didn’t get a chance,” reported a journalist. Witnesses say they feared how violent the protesters were willing to get. “They pushed an old man with a walking stick to the ground, and spat in a young girl’s face.” Which brings us to what motivated the Antifa protest in the first place: Ann Marie Waters. She was invited to the event being the For Britain party candidate, and the Far Left wanted to make sure Ann couldn’t even get in the door. The protest worked. The police had to shut the hustings down because of the public disorder that was happening outside the building. “To get to the venue we had to literally fight our way through,” said one witness. Protesters actively attempted to block people from filming them. (Breitbart) (Rebel Media) (Socialist Worker) (Westmonster)
June 19th 2018: Trump’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen was targeted at a Mexican restaurant. She was the target of far left outrage as the press made her the “face” of family separation at the U.S./Mexico border. People petitioned for her to resign.The protester ambush was organized by the Washington DC Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the DC branch of the Industrial Workers of the World union. One DSA member involved, Allison Hrabar, worked at the Justice Department as a paralegal specialist. “If kids don’t eat in peace, you don’t eat in peace,” the mob yelled at Nielsen. “We will not stand by and let Secretary Nielsen dine in peace, while she is directing her employees to tear little girls away from their mothers and crying boys away from their fathers at our border.” The Department of Homeland Security acknowledged the encounter via Twitter. Around the same time, Peter Fonda lashed out and said Kristjen Nielsen should be whipped naked in public. At least one outlet took an activist stance justifying what this mob did to Nielsen.

June 22nd 2018: It didn’t even take a physical mob of sorts to get former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant. “Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so,” Sanders tweeted. The waiter serving them confirmed that the owner asked Sanders and her family to leave. In a Washington Post interview, Red Hen co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson said she got a call at home from one of the chefs. Reportedly the staff were “concerned” about Sarah’s presence. But the political motivations of this were clear. Wilkinson asked Sanders to leave because Sarah defended Trump’s desire to ban transgender people from serving in the military. People unleashed their positive/negative reactions on the online review pages. Trump tweeted his displeasure. Sarah Sanders got Secret Service protection in the immediate aftermath. Stephanie Wilkinson had to step down from the Main Street Lexington group because of the controversy.

June 23rd 2018: The infamous Maxine Waters speech that many people attribute as a motivator the far left aggression. She said the following in the middle of a rant about Trump’s immigration policy. “Already you have members of your cabinet that have been booed out of restaurants, who have protesters taking up at their house, who say ‘NO PEACE, NO SLEEP. NO PEACE, NO SLEEP.’ And guess what? We’re gonna win this battle […] God is on our side.”
Maxine encouraged people to continue this approach. “If you see ANYBODY from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you GET OUT and you CREATE A CROWD. AND YOU PUSH BACK ON THEM, AND YOU TELL THEM THEY’RE NOT WELCOME!”
June 25th 2018: It didn’t take long for people to put Maxine’s rhetoric into practice. Mitch McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were targeted one evening as they were leaving a business meeting in Georgetown. One of the ringleaders, Roberto, posted a video of the encounter on Twitter. Another angle was captured by a nearby journalist. A group of protesters blasted audio of immigrant children crying to make a point about the family separation debacle allegedly happening in Trump’s immigration policy. “Why don’t you leave my husband alone?” Elaine says, defending her husband. “How do you sleep at night?” a member of the mob barked back. The two couldn’t even reach their car without help from security guards pushing protesters away. “I’m not trying to disrespect you, but why is he separating families?” someone asked Chao. “He’s not!” she shouted back. It came out that Roberto was an intern at United We Dream, which in itself is an initiative by the National Immigration Law Center, which in turn receives funding from the Open Society Foundations.

June 28th 2018: Generation Identity UK leader Tom Dupré knocked down by punch from Antifa. A gang of Far Left kicked him while he laid there unconscious on the ground. His face was bloodied and he almost got ran over by a bus.
June 30th 2018: Antifa and Patriot Prayer/Proud Boys have a rematch in Portland, after clashing at the beginning of the month. “Freedom and Courage Rally” was the name of Patriot Prayer’s event. “Defend PDX: Patriot Prayer’s Violence Must End” said Rose City Antifa’s Facebook event page. But history calls it The Battle of Portland. The rally itself started at 4:00 PM. Things started getting crazy at some point by 6:00 pm, leading to a riot declaration by 6:05. The out-of-towners were back on buses by 7:30 PM.
Beyond the clash with Patriot Prayer, the general political issues shifted from protesting white supremacy and more towards Trump’s immigration policies. Patriot Prayer had a permit to march. It was supposed to be a more formal, significant gathering. People came in from all over the country for this one. For one brief shining moment, Patriot Prayer got that marching they were looking for. There were speeches, prayers, songs.
But then a short while later, the police had to revoke the permit. “We remember Charlottesville, you got Heather Heyer killed,” Antifa chanted. The far left loomed in the distance. It all went down at Terry Schrunk Plaza, with more than 100 members on each side of the skirmish. You can clearly see in the footage that Antifa threw the first flash grenade. Slate agrees with me. It’s after that the two sides collide. Several have noted the case for self-defense on Patriot Prayer’s part. Obviously the point still stands: both factions punched and kicked the shit out of each other. The riot police called it a dynamic situation. In a newer strategy, Antifa set up makeshift battleground barricades against Patriot Prayer. This was a war, after all. Complete with loud “BOOM” noises. Antifa considers Portland their territory.
“Police are now declaring this event a riot. People must leave the area immediately,” Portland Police tweeted. For context, not complying with the fuzz at this point is a fast-track to getting arrested. The cops had to clarify they did not use tear gas, but something called “aerial distraction devices” instead. One poor bastard got hit straight in the face with riot munitions.
We didn’t just have standard riot police. The Department of Homeland Security’s people were involved with this one. Likely since Terry Schrunk Plaza is a federal park. DHS shot less-lethal rounds at Antifa. “They were throwing rocks, they were throwing bottles, you need to tell the truth,” one older MAGA lady said. Eggs and garbage were thrown too. Garbage can lids too. A Patriot Prayer fella got maced.
“Today was good in terms that we showed that there’s a political move right now to have the police stand down in order to impact free speech in some of these big cities. Portland’s the last city on the West Coast that’s doing that, so we just have to keep hitting it — I don’t see what else to do other than that. We’ll make Portland so ugly in terms of how they allow these protesters to charge us when we have a permit. The police stood down, we were told they would not stand down, so we have to challenge it,” Joey Gibson told KOIN.
Four people were injured. One Patriot Prayer guy had “his face busted open.” Four were also arrested, including Patriot Prayer’s Tiny. But in this case the police clarify they were for larger investigations that started earlier than the events of that day. But of course the boys-in-blue seized weapons they came across during the riot. Patriot Prayer felt betrayed by the cops in light of their permit being revoked.
In Al Jazeera’s and HuffPost’s cases, they depict Patriot Prayer as aggressors even though Antifa vowed to fight them. “It is very important that antifascists keep up the pressure so that we can stop them once and for all,” It’s Going Down wrote.

July 7th 2018: Mitch McConnell ambushed by a far left socialist mob as he’s leaving a Kentucky restaurant. It happened two days in a row, apparently. They shouted: “Abolish ICE,” “VOTE YOU OUT,” called him “turtle head,” and said “we know you where you live.” That first phrase being obvious since an anti-ICE rally was going on a few miles away from where McConnell was dining. It was at a time the issue of family separation at the U.S./Mexico border was intense. Mitch McConnell stood by Trump’s zero-tolerance policies and it attracted this ire. “Where are the babies? What are you doing to get the babies back?” one protester asked McConnell. “I see what they did here. They waited until Elaine wasn’t around,” Mitch tweeted later, referring to a previous encounter. A fellow politician by the name of Jonathan Shell was with Mitch when this happened. He called the mob “extremists” and chalked the incident up to the agenda of Maxine Waters.

July 20th 2018: Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern tour Australia. They planned to bring the conversation about culture, identity, and immigration to their shores. The authorities didn’t like that. There were visa troubles, but Lauren got past them. The leftist media hated that. Especially when she landed on their shores in a “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE” shirt. Her’s and Stefan’s schedule did a tour of: Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, and Auckland. Melbourne was on the 20th, and ended up being the only place where the duo confronted severe resistance from Far Left protesters. It was organized by a group called the Whistleblowers, Activists and Communities Alliance.
Police had to “kettle” roughly 200 protesters and Antifa since they decided to surround buses with ticket holders, and block the Hume Highway. The protesters threw stuff at the bus. There was friction between the Left and Right. Fighting broke out even before the show began. Some got in though. “AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE” “OI OI OI” Lauren’s crowd chanted after a protester with a megaphone was escorted out of the room. “At least they listened to half my speech,” she remarked. Two more got kicked out for yelling “REFUGEES ARE WELCOME.” Lauren wondered if South African refugees would be considered. Someone named Nita Habibi rushed the stage screaming “I love Muslims!” and made for one heck of a finale that night. “I wanted to interrupt the thing. I think it’s really dangerous what’s happening. Hate speech should be interrupted,” Habibi told The Australian. One protester was arrested. Victoria Police sent Lauren Southern a bill for $68,000.

August 4th 2018: A big ol’ showdown between Patriot Prayer and Antifa in Portland. A city that grew infamous for its allowance of radical far left activity. “We’re here to promote freedom and God. That’s it,” Joey Gibson told the media. “We remember Charlottesville!” chanted counter-protesters. Everyone was on edge given how close it was to the one-year anniversary of that. The Antifa side was arranged by a group called “Popular Mobilization.” Who state on Facebook they “make no apologies for the use of force in keeping our communities safe from the scourge of right-wing violence.” Some called the day a campaign event since Gibson was running for office at the time. It was controversial that Joey switched the event’s location at the last minute, with some alleging it was to allow for concealed firearms. City officials warned everyone to leave their guns at home. Police didn’t classify this as a full blown riot. Only a civil disturbance (with weapons confiscated), since the opposing groups didn’t get into physical fighting. Portland police came under fire after the weekend because of their crowd control methods. They used flash grenades on Antifa to break them up (side note: this perfectly timed photo captures the moment a flash grenade activated). Police claimed to be acting in self-defense, responding to Antifa’s initiated aggression. Click here to experience being beat up by police from a first-person perspective. In some cases things got bloody. An Antifa posted photos of his comrade being hit directly by a flash bang from the cops. A reporter for the Oregonian got hit in the head and medics had to address his wounds. An Antifa clubbed a guy over some flag. There’s a whole story on OregonLive going over this. Guess what? Antifa beat up one of their own. A progressive. Speaking of flags, Antifa tore up a Nazi flag (but had a hard time trying to burn it). A couple of elderly Patriot Prayer supporters got jumped upon returning to a parking garage. Police arrested four people. A timeline of the day is available at OregonLive and Big League Politics. Antifa website It’s Going Down has a page about the day, too. If you think my description of events is too biased against Antifa, you’re more than welcome to read their perspective.

August 5th 2018: It was an event called “No To Marxism” hosted in Berkeley, California. “NAZIS GO HOME” and “CHARLOTTESVILLE NEVER AGAIN” were things the Antifa counter-protesters shouted. Which was likely in louder measure since there were more Far Leftists than “Far Right scum” to find at this particular event. Some Antifa people put up masks even though that was against Berkeley’s particular rules. Cops weren’t afraid to arrest for that. Video footage shows the far left smashing windows on several cars (and lit one on fire). Antifa targeted the vehicles because they were city-owned. The windows of a Marine Recruitment Center were broken too. This was all captured on film by Ford Fischer. Antifa tried scaring Fischer off as the far left mob were lighting up a garbage dumpster. A whopping 20 people were arrested. The cops confiscated “weapons,” or things that loosely classify as such. In return, the police reportedly deployed the standard concoction of flash bangs, rubber bullets, and a dash of smoke bombs. There was some media upset because Berkeley Police uploaded mugshots of people arrested. They alleged it’d fuel “doxing” campaigns. On the other hand, I’d argue police did it to show everyone they were doing their job that day. Fuller analysis available at Mercury News and Berkeleyside.

August 6th 2018: An Antifa mob ambushed Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens during breakfast at a Philly restaurant. A crowd gathered and started screaming at them. Owens posted a video of the encounter on Twitter. Someone threw water on Charlie Kirk. We know this because Antifa tweeted out that moment. According to him, he and Candace decided to stand their ground to show the far left they wouldn’t be intimidated. They were unaware that this mob would actually throw stuff at them. The police got involved to make sure no ruckus happened. Both Kirk and Owens blamed Maxine Waters for encouraging this kind of political violence. A guest on Fox News floated the notion that Kirk and Owens faked it. Newsweek ran with the theory without any evidence to back it up. We can call the incident “legit” given that It’s Going Down has a blog post on it.

August 8th 2018: There was a local council meeting at Portland City Hall. But Antifa wanted to make sure the topic of discussion was the police response to the rally that took place four days earlier. So they showed up to make a ruckus. “One demonstrator, who was masked and wearing a baseball helmet, smashed a security guard over the head repeatedly with a megaphone. The guard was seen afterward clutching a bag of ice, a bruise beginning to form on his cheek.City Hall security chief Dorothy Elmore said she was also struck by a protester, in the arm,” reported OregonLive. If Antifa wanted to have their voices heard, they could’ve done it without getting their people arrested at City Hall. They were concerned about the whole “flash bang lodged in a motorcycle helmet” thing. When questioned, Portland Police Bureau Assistant Chief Ryan Lee said such a thing shouldn’t be possible.
August 11th 2018: Back over in Canada, Toronto had some heat the same weekend. The World Coalition against Islam was going to have a rally, but cancelled. The counter protesters showed up to Nathan Phillips Square anyway. All they had to do was not beat up journalists. What did they do? Beat up a journalist. Their target? The Sun’s photographer Stan Behal. A mob accused him of “harassment” for taking pictures. “These masked people shouted obscenities at me and chanted that I was a racist. One of them assaulted my colleague Stan Behal. And this was at an anti-hate rally!” wrote Behal’s colleague, Sue-Ann Levy. (CBC) (Daily Caller) (Toronto Sun)
August 11th/12th 2018: Antifa returned to Charlottesville on the one-year anniversary of Heather Heyer’s death. Media estimates pin the number at somewhere above 100. But general protesters somewhere beyond 500. Heyer’s mother made a pilgrimage to the exact spot where her daughter died. A few of her words were fitting. “I think last year’s eruption — that infection gives us a little better understanding of how bad it is so that we can gradually, slowly and difficultly heal,” she said. It was nowhere more evident than the Far Left.
The anti-cop messaging was in high gear. “Last year they came with torches. This year they come with badges,” one sign read. “Cops and the Klan go hand in hand,” they chanted. BPR has footage of Antifa attacking a cop. Why? Their anger likely comes from the investigation into 2017’s Charlottesville rally. Blame was placed on the police’s “passive” response just as much as it was on the Far Right. Or maybe someone was upset the cops confiscated their brass knuckles on the way in.
The police weren’t going to take any chances. This clashed with the Black Lives Matter movement who helped organize the demonstrations. “White people, put your bodies on the line!” This time around police had security checkpoints. They separated wheat from the chaff. People left chalk messages in the street. Then came the UVA demonstrations at sunset. A small army of riot police showed up and people started going sour. “Why are you in riot gear? We don’t see no riot here,” the crowd chanted. The group moved around to a few different places, as to prevent being “caged” by the cops. But the bulk of it happened at UVA’s Lambeth Field. When nighttime fell, things got crazy. The rally “officially” ended at around 8:30 PM after people left Lambeth Field. They did a march to the infamous General Lee statue. A hospital was briefly put on lockdown because of Antifa protests. “ALL COPS ARE BASTARDS” roared the Far Left mob. They demanded someone tear down statues.
“Last night police tried to stop someone from moving a traffic barrel in the street and were tackled by a few protesters,” Emily Molli tweeted, with a close-up video of the police/Antifa clash.
What caught people’s attention the most was when Antifa attacked NBC’s Cal Perry. “Fu** you, snitch ass news bitch. Fu** you” screeched an Antifa before punching the camera. The Far Left’s hatred of being photographed extends to reporters. Watch as Antifa aggressively violates a cameraman’s personal space. CNN’s Brian Stelter condemned it and asked Cal to describe his attackers. Mr. Perry said the protest was “almost exclusively Antifa at that point.” Jake Tapper scorned them: “Totally unacceptable and not at all out of the norm for antifa.”
More of the same Antifa behavior happened on the 12th. Early on everyone had a kumbaya moment in the park, and then there was the paying of respects for Heyer’s death. That went fine. But then there was another standoff with police. One Far Left girl couldn’t help herself and spat at someone. She was quickly arrested. But it got worse. “Protestors didn’t want to be filmed and cut my photographer’s audio cable cord,” wrote ABC’s DeJuan Hoggard, with picture proof. But the reporter also got proof it was the Far Left via video. Three officers were assaulted. Four people were arrested.(Associated Press) (II)(BPR) (Breitbart) (CBS) (CNN) (Daily Beast) (Daily Caller) (Daily Wire) (Gateway Pundit) (IJR) (MSNBC) (National Review) (Newsweek) (NPR) (Reuters) (The Blaze) (The Guardian) (The Hill) (Town Hall) (USA Today) (Washington Examiner) (Washington Post)

August 12th 2018: On the one-year anniversary of Charlottesville, Jason Kessler decided to try again. But this time in Washington DC. If you look at the size of the #UniteTheRight2 march itself, it’s almost too minuscule to even qualify. They had a small rally and that was it. Counter protesters surrounded them from all sides (see this cool time lapse for what that looked like). Gobs and gobs of Antifa showed up for what must be one of the Far Left’s biggest turnouts of all time. Definitely over 1000 people. Anarchist soldiers of Black Bloc in force among them. Black Lives Matter and Refuse Fascism groups were both there. Antifa marched to the White House yelling about revolutions. One old man had a tuba that lighted up with “F$#K TRUMP” when he blew into it.
“No border, no wall, no USA at all” they chanted in the nation’s capitol. DC police faced fireworks and smoke bombs from a literal mob of outrage. Antifa hurled things at them. One Antifa burnt a Confederate flag in the middle of the street. Two people with Trump 2020 shirts on had water/chemicals thrown on them and Antifa stalked them for awhile. They needed a police escort to get to safety. But even the cops were made Far Left targets. “FUCK YOU” they barked at them. WATCH: “Whoa. This @DCPoliceDept officer was nearly mobbed by a group of counterprotesters at #UniteTheRight2. People were throwing things at him, shoving him and kicking his motorcycle.” From the Far Left crowd one could hear shouts of “anytime, anyplace, punch a Nazi In the face.” Antifa (and their sympathetic journalists) hated the fact DC cops were protecting the far-right Unite the Right group. Antifa threw rocks at the marchers and the cops. One guy was yelling at them. A helicopter loomed over head to watch over the day. One had two batons. Antifa got a healthy meal of pepper spray for dinner from the police. It was apparently a potluck dinner, as Antifa threw eggs at the Secret Service and journalists. Police arrested one Antifa for pepper spraying someone in the face and having a weapon on him. Another was arrested earlier on in the day for spitting on cops. One can easily guess which side he was on. Far Lefties got mad at Vox for reporting on Antifa violence. There was plenty of that going around though. Daily Caller for example has “Antifa Protestor Punches Man During Facebook Live At ‘Unite The Right’ Rally And Chant Anti-American Slogans.” Breitbart caught Antifa getting angry at a USA Today reporter. “Get the fuck out of here,” Antifa shouted at a photographer as they repeatedly pushed him away. The only platform the Far Left are willing to give is a guillotine.

Both of these events (Charlottesville and DC) had absolutely near-zero White Supremacists to speak of. The Far Left crowds spent two days fighting with the police. So why are the media, like CNN’s Chris Cuomo, defending Antifa? “That’s why people who show up to fight against bigots are not to be judged the same as the bigots, even if they do resort to the same kinds of petty violence. The law will take care of that,” he remarked.
Benny Johnson asked counter protesters what they’d do if Trump showed up to the event. At least two “Anti-Trump”ers threatened to assassinate the President of the United States. The Secret Service took things more seriously than Cuomo (D-Day reference, really?) and promised to investigate.
September 24th 2018: Ted Cruz and his lady got heat at an Italian restaurant in DC. They were forced to leave. The cause? This was when the protests against Brett Kavanaugh were happening. The far left targeted Cruz as an enemy, responsible for perpetuating the misogyny boogeyman in Washington. The protesters wanted to intimidate Cruz’s vote for Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The fact that Brett and Ted were old friends made this situation even more intense. “WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS. WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS,” the mob chanted. It was reportedly orchestrated by Smash Racism DC, or at the very least they postured themselves and took credit for it. “No—you can’t eat in peace—your politics are an attack on all of us,” the group tweeted. The Democratic Socialists of America were involved as well. Beto O’Rourke condemned the ambush. The restaurant put out a statement saying they welcome any political persuasion, just don’t bother other guests.

This is a message to Ted Cruz, Bret Kavanaugh, Donald Trump and the rest of the racist, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic right-wing scum: You are not safe. We will find you. We will expose you. We will take from you the peace you have taken from so many others. — Smash Racism DC, September 24th 2018.

October 12th 2018: Vandalism hits New York City’s Metropolitan Republican Club. Far left Antifa smashed windows, spray painted Anarchist symbols on them, and broke locks. “Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize,” they wrote in a message they left behind. Much of the motive according to the note was because of the Republican party in general. It was around this time the “concentration camp” rhetoric was heating up. This happened the day before a Gavin McInnes/Proud Boys event. (ABC) (Daily Caller) (Daily News) (Daily Wire) (Hot Air)
October 13th 2018: Gavin McInnes was scheduled to speak at the Metropolitan Republican Club on the Upper East Side. According to eyewitnesses present, approximately 60 protesters held signs and heckled the attendees. “KILL MORE NAZIS” they chanted. Tensions were already running high due to the vandalism and threatening note left at the property the previous day. Police attempted to keep the protesters separate from the Proud Boys at the conclusion of the event. Antifa followed the Proud Boys about a block from the Republican Club until they were away from the NYPD escorts, and one protester threw a bottle filled with urine and feces at the men. Four masked men were seen on security footage running towards the group of Proud Boys and a fight ensued after an object was thrown. The altercation lasted less than two minutes. (Note: source footage has been deleted in at least one case. The New York Times later uncovered footage which they say shows the Proud Boys started it.)
Despite no complaints filed in this case and no victims were ever identified, the state looked to charge nine Proud Boys. This came about as a combination of the media complaining about no arrests and the political might of Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio. Although a police officer testified in court that Antifa members circled the block to get around the police line and intercept the Proud Boys prompting the altercation, no cases have been pursued against any Antifa members. On the other hand we have a now deleted tweet from New York’s Attorney General, in which the Proud Boys are mentioned by name and it’s clear the authorities wanted them to hang. I’m willing to say 30 Proud Boys vs. 3 Antifa is bad. Plain and simple. Same goes for 60 Proud Boys vs. 6 Antifa, if that inflation of the initial numbers is even true. Same goes for the names called. Antifa had their masks. Proud Boys took a group photo. Poor hindsight making it so easy for identification. That on top of taking and posting video footage themselvesare reasons why the Proud Boys got the harsher punishments here. The Antifa involved refused to talk to the cops whatsoever. Alongside that night, three other Antifa protesters were arrested for attacking a 30-year-old man as he left the rally. Caleb Perkins, Finbarr Slonim, and Kai Russo were all charged with harassment, larceny and misdemeanor assault.
But of course that part of the story fell by the media wayside.
Of the Proud Boys charged, five of those men took plea deals and were given community services and another who pleaded guilty received a sentence of 40 weekends in prison. The cases that received the most publicity was that of Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman. Maxwell Hare, 27, and John Kinsman, 39, were sentenced on charges of rioting, attempted assault, and attempted gang assault by State Supreme Court Judge Mark Dwyer, who sought to make an example of the boys, said that the hefty sentence was intended to discourage “extremists” from rallying in New York in the future. He went on to say; “I know enough about history to know what happened in Europe in the ’30s when political street brawls were allowed to go ahead without any type of check from the criminal justice system.”
The judge received criticism after handing down such a heavy sentence after it was discovered the judge sentenced Baruch Lebovits, a pedophile who abused a teenage boy on eight occasions, to only serve two years in jail.

October 13th 2018: It was a flash march set up last minute by Patriot Prayer. They were protesting Portland Mayor Tim Wheeler because he stood down and allowed the far left to run wild in the city. But somehow Antifa got wind of it and managed to mobilize a counterattack within a matter of hours. They cited the SPLC as a source in their flyers. The evening culminated in a brawl outside a Portland bar. Antifa used pepper spray on Patriot Prayer. A guy’s head was stomped on at one point. Antifa tried lighting an American flag on fire. Police showed up in riot gear and fired non-lethal rounds to break it all up. A full timeline is available on OregonLive.

November 6th 2018: Actually relatively peaceful. For once. There were concerns about it being voting day for the elections. But Antifa protested against ICE without much incident whatsoever. Despite a situation involving a paint ball gun happening the day before.
November 7th 2018: Smash Racism DC showed up at Tucker Carlson’s house in the middle of the night. There was reportedly 20 protesters. They rang the doorbell and tried getting inside. The purpose was to spread fear, beyond the usual vandalism like spray painting the Fox host’s driveway. “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!” they chanted. In a sickening twist they doxed Carlson’s home address by writing it down on a sign and taking a picture of that sitting at the front door. “Here’s the problem, I have four children. I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesn’t like my TV show,” Carlson remarked. Smash Racism DC cited the SPLC to try and legitimize this act of psychological terror. It wasn’t over politics. Smash Racism DC wanted Tucker Carlson to leave town. His wife hid in the pantry. Police investigated it as a potential hate crime. A given, because of the bomb threats that got tossed in by the far left mob. Tucker’s brother was doxed. Ann Coulter, Neil Patel, and Sean Hannity too. #KnockKnockTucker was the hashtag.”It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat. They weren’t protesting anything specific that I had said. They weren’t asking me to change anything. They weren’t protesting a policy or advocating for legislation. […] They were threatening me and my family and telling me to leave my own neighborhood in the city that I grew up in,” Carlson told the Washington Post.
Smash Racism DC put out a statement explaining why they did it.
Consider the history of group members like Mike Isaacson, when reading that.
The attack on Tucker Carlson was unanimously horrible. Everyone from Megyn Kelly/Fox News to Brian Stelter/CNN came together to realize how awful the attack on Tucker was. Stephen Colbert condemned it. Alyssa Milano said this was not ok. Vox’s Matt Yglesias looked like a psychopath when he tried defending the protest mob’s actions. Twitter took down Smash Racism DC’s account.

November 17th 2018: The #HimToo rally in Portland faced off against a counter-protest. It was organized by Haley Adams as a Men’s rights awareness effort in light of the Brett Kavanaugh debacle. “A Movement of White Nationalists and Rape Apologists,” is what Antifa called #HimToo. Police announced six arrests at the conclusion of the day. An overextended turnout from the Antifa side led to police blocking off these protesters from disrupting the event itself. The DSA and Women’s Rights groups had their own response event reinforcing what they believe to be the #MeToo cause. Assaults happened, objects were thrown, things were burned. The best Antifa highlight was Hannah McClintock, caught on camera spitting and punching people. As per usual, Antifa got angry with the police themselves rather than the other side of the protests. One Antifa member flashed some ass. They had guillotines. Antifa targeted Andy Ngo with silly string. He says he was assaulted. Cops had to bring out the riot gear. On the plus side, the #HimToo rally had Tara LaRosa. (CBS) (Fox News) (Gateway Pundit) (OregonLive) (Spectator) (USA Today)

November 17th 2018: Two Hispanic Marines are attacked in Philadelphia by a mob of protesters who called them “Nazis” and “White Supremacists.” A total of 10 to 12 Antifa beat up and robbed members of the US military. “I could have died that day,” one Marine later said in court. To add insult to injury, these oh-so-tolerant Far Left attackers used racial slurs. Antifa were in the area in the first place for the “We the People” rally. A description for the event shows it’s purely a pro-Constitution meet-up. Daily Dot tried painting the event as “Far Right,” which gives a reason as to why Antifa would show up. Claire Lampen threw in some scary SPLC talk, said groups like the Proud Boys were “probably” gonna be there, and painted a targets on the backs of US Marines. The two Marines attacked weren’t even going to the rally, but a separate event at a hotel in the area. The Antifa assailants asked the two Marines if they were Proud Boys. They had no idea what a “Proud Boy” was. Great job for causing harm, Claire Lampen. It took a little over a week, but Antifa activist Tom Keenan turned himself in. The initial media coverage was limited but the police’s request for information proved successful. Another guy, Thomas Massey, soon followed Keenan.
According to Washington Post, Massey was a part of the January 2017 Inauguration riots in DC.
“I think there should have been more violence yesterday,” said Massey, who was among those arrested. Asked if he participated in the violence, Massey replied, “There were some rocks thrown.” He said that he hopes next time, demonstrations will be “more successful. I’ll get to punch a Nazi. I didn’t get to do that yesterday. The police stopped me.”
A month later, The Daily Caller took a bold move by unmasking Antifa leader Joseph Alcoff. A member of Smash Racism DC, Alcoff participated in the Ted Cruz restaurant ambush and the night attack on Tucker Carlson’s house. He had both an even-handed public “work” account, but also a side account where Alcoff espoused his Far Left extremist ideology. Alcoff’s activism work went all the way back to Occupy Wall Street. Here he is with political mob boss Maxine Waters. The Daily Caller’s gambit paid off. “Torres saw a photo of Alcoff in the Daily Caller story and contacted detectives in Philadelphia, claiming that he recognized Alcoff as another member of the group that attacked him.” Two months after this all began, Joseph Alcoff was arrested and charged in relation to Antifa’s attack. On charges of ethnics intimidation.

December 1st 2018: Protest by Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity in Seattle against a pro-second amendment group. It was another traumatic day for Andy Ngo, who had the brass balls to go there and cover the event. Someone asked Ngo if he was “willing to die” for his work. A cop got in Andy’s face and accused him of inciting conflict. Antifa people walking around with guns confronted Andy as well. Roughly 150 people showed up to counter the protest put on by the 3 percent group. Antifa didn’t have any permit. But the police didn’t mind, so they were free to openly target and ridicule Ngo all day. (Andy’s thread is here.) (Daily Wire) (Gateway Pundit) (Hot Air) (Red State)
