‘The Other Side of Hate’: FBI Warning On Violence Of Antifa

President Trump has been called everything from a racist to a Nazi because he pointed out the violence of Antifa after the deadly Charlottesville clash on August 12th but in documents obtained by POLITCO, federal authorities warned local officials the actions of left-wing extremists were becoming increasingly confrontational and dangerous in 2016.

Some of the documents even classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.”

In previously unreported documents dating back to April 2016 and viewed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and Antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies. They blamed these groups for attacks on police, government and political institutions, racists, fascists and “symbols of capitalism.”

The agencies warned the rise of fascist, nationalist, racist or anti-immigrant groups in U.S. political discourse could lead to violent backlash from these “anarchist extremists.”

The FBI and DHS had no comment on the assessments, saying they were not intended to be made public.  It is unknown why the information was not known to the public and law enforcement prior to this report.

    While I am concerned that if this information was not for release but was, someone may have committed an unlawful act, anyone who is surprised by this assessment of the Antifa and some of their associates is a fool. There is no question that they are violent domestic terrorists, differing from most of the Klan/Nazi types by the underlying views. The repressive nature of their implementation is too close to differentiate. The vast majority of the conduct to which they respond with criminal violence is clearly protected speech, no matter how repugnant the views expressed in that speech.

    The reason should be obvious. ANTIFA, like BLM and the Occupy movement are all funded by George Soros. Soros pulls the strings of many establishment politicians who wouldn’t mind seeing our President fail.
