You Will Be Made to Love and to Trump Hate

by baldilocks

It’s not a con­spir­acy the­ory if it’s true.

Con­trary to asser­tions by use­ful idiots like Robert Reich that the Berke­ley riots were the work of para­mil­i­tary right-​wingers, it has become increas­ingly evi­dent that black-​clad Antifa anar­chists coor­di­nated with Bay Area com­mu­nity activists and UC Berke­ley stu­dent groups to orches­trate the vio­lent protests against Milo Yiannopolous. The Antifa riot­ers are the same mask-​wearing, black-​outfitted, Molo­tov cocktail-​throwing, fire-​burning, stick-​carrying pugilist punks fea­tured in The Occu­pa­tion Man­i­festo and The Occu­pa­tion Devo­lu­tion videos chron­i­cling Occupy Oak­land in 2011.

Antifa is short for “anti-​fascist” and is pro­nounced an-​TEE-​fah. Accord­ing to left-​leaning tech mag­a­zine Wired, they are “mil­i­tant anti-fascist[s]” and “anar­chists prone to prop­erty destruc­tion and online abuse. [T]hey dou­ble down on polit­i­cal polar­iza­tion, dri­ving the national nar­ra­tive even fur­ther from center.

Antifa is believed to have been born in 1970s Ger­many — a far left, com­mu­nist, anti-​fascist reac­tion to far right, neo-​Nazi fas­cist groups ascen­dant at the time. It spread through­out Europe and found its way to the US where it seems to have first appeared at the WTO riots in Seat­tle. Like a bad rash, they keep pop­ping up, hav­ing been actively engaged in the Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Mat­ter, and anti-​Trump move­ments. Like ISIS, inde­pen­dent “cells” exist all over the world.

They are incred­i­bly well-​networked, trained in effec­tive para­mil­i­tary tac­tics, and have a nuanced and sophis­ti­cated under­stand­ing, use and manip­u­la­tion of the inter­net — espe­cially trolling, DDoS attacks, and their Bash the Fash and Meme Wars with the fas­cist alt-​right.

They are known for employ­ing “Black Bloc” tac­tics at protests to achieve their ends — form­ing a mono­lithic bloc by dress­ing in black and wear­ing black bal­a­clavas or ban­danas so as not to be iden­ti­fied by facial recog­ni­tion soft­ware or cam­eras. Accord­ing to the Wash­ing­ton Post, the hordes move in uni­son as one large, black-​clad uniden­ti­fi­able mass to “achieve both vio­lent and non­vi­o­lent ends.”

(…)

Robert Reich was halfway cor­rect — they are para­mil­i­tary — but they are not con­ser­v­a­tive right-​wingers. They are Reich’s fel­low trav­el­ers on the com­mu­nist mag­i­cal mys­tery tour.

Jonah Gold­berg was right, no pun intended.

Mob vio­lence is always a tool of ter­ror and of ter­ror­ists; it is rarely spon­ta­neous. The ide­ol­ogy being pro­moted is sec­ondary — if it mat­ters at all. But it’s “inter­est­ing” to note that the Far Left has never been shy about using the meth­ods of the jihad.

It’s not a conspiracy theory if it’s true.

Contrary to assertions by useful idiots like Robert Reich that the Berkeley riots were the work of paramilitary right-wingers, it has become increasingly evident that black-clad Antifa anarchists  coordinated with Bay Area community activists and UC Berkeley student groups to orchestrate the violent protests against Milo Yiannopolous.  The Antifa rioters are the same mask-wearing, black-outfitted, Molotov cocktail-throwing, fire-burning, stick-carrying pugilist punks featured in The Occupation Manifesto and The Occupation Devolution videos chronicling Occupy Oakland in 2011.

Antifa is short for “anti-fascist” and is pronounced an-TEE-fah.  According to left-leaning tech magazine Wired, they are “militant anti-fascist[s]” and “anarchists prone to property destruction and online abuse. [T]hey double down on political polarization, driving the national narrative even further from center.

Antifa is believed to have been born in 1970s Germany — a far left, communist, anti-fascist reaction to far right, neo-Nazi fascist groups ascendant at the time.  It spread throughout Europe and found its way to the US where it seems to have first appeared at the WTO riots in Seattle.  Like a bad rash, they keep popping up, having been actively engaged in the Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, and anti-Trump movements.  Like ISIS, independent “cells” exist all over the world.

They are incredibly well-networked, trained in effective paramilitary tactics, and have a nuanced and sophisticated understanding, use and manipulation of the internet — especially trolling, DDoS attacks, and their Bash the Fash and Meme Wars with the fascist alt-right.

They are known for employing “Black Bloc” tactics at protests to achieve their ends — forming a monolithic bloc by dressing in black and wearing black balaclavas or bandanas so as not to be identified by facial recognition software or cameras.  According to the Washington Post, the hordes move in unison as one large, black-clad unidentifiable mass to “achieve both violent and nonviolent ends.”

(…)

Robert Reich was halfway correct — they are paramilitary — but they are not conservative right-wingers.  They are Reich’s fellow travelers on the communist magical mystery tour.

Jonah Goldberg was right, no pun intended.

Mob violence is always a tool of terror and of terrorists; it is rarely spontaneous. The ideology being promoted is secondary—if it matters at all. But it’s “interesting” to note that the Far Left has never been shy about using the methods of the jihad.

Cite. Mao and Stalin win the jack boot jackpot. Hitler comes in third, of course. And I was only mildly surprised to see King Leopold II of Belgium in fourth place.
