Antifa’s White Privilege

Last year I posted about Antifa and their White Privilege with Stuff White People Like. The post included quite the pasty list of mugshots for various arrests. There must be a handful of other ethnicities in Antifa but Hispanics and Blacks have their own activist groups and Asian-Americans have not yet joined the protest parties in any significant way.

There was always a good chance that some event would appear that would allow them to have another shot at glory and fundamentally transforming America, and the Chinese Lung Rot and Floyd murder was the perfect opportunity.

Progressive!

Now Antifa need to play a double game here; agitating against a society they loudly proclaim they hate, while also trying to pretend it’s other groups doing this or just grassroots anger that magically got out of control and converted peaceful protests into riots and looting.

To that end much was made earlier in the week about a “fake” Antifa Twitter account calling for all sorts of mayhem before it was switched off.

But even accepting the argument that it was a fake there’s plenty more where that came from, as recorded by the National Legal and Policy Center in the US, which has compiled quite the list of Antifa pushing their message on Twitter.

The article also lists Twitter’s rules for posting on their site:

You may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people. We also prohibit the glorification of violence. Learn more about our violent threat and glorification of violence policies…You may not threaten or promote terrorism or violent extremism.

Keep that in mind as you look at these various Twitter postings from Antifa and company.

The important thing to note is that the greatest destruction from all this happened in neighbourhoods dominated by Blacks: they’re the people who have to live in the ruins, while the Antifa Whites get to go back home to untorched suburbs and the like.

And if you’re wondering why these accounts are still up and running, take a look at the person who is the “head of site integrity” at Twitter, Yoel Roth.

Think you can trust this guy to enforce Twitter’s own rules in a fair and balanced way? To do anything in a fair and balanced way?

For example, while Twitter claim that the Antifa site they took down was linked to some nutty Far Right European group, you have to wonder how honest those claimed “links” can be when they come from people like Yoel Roth.

And given that he’s so out and proud in his hatred of the Right Wing you know that there must be plenty more like him in the corporation.

And of course this White guy likely lives in peaceful Silicon Valley, earning a substantial six or seven-figure salary, with stock options.


But who needs friends like that in the MSM and Social Media sites when you’ve actually got Democrat politicians who are gaslighting all of this, such as Ryan Winkler, the Democrat House Majority Leader.

Desperate to turn away the growing spotlight on Antifa, BLM and the more generic rioters and looters in Minneapolis, Winkler finally thought he’d found his great White Supremacist Whale when a truck driver “ploughed” into a group of protesters blocking a highway.

Winkler went cray cray in this Tweet, starting with “Protestors I know“.

Every single thing in that Tweet was a lie, bar the simple fact that the Police later closed the bridge.

 

As can be seen in this video from Traffic video cameras Verchirko simply brought his truck to a halt when he saw the crowd. According to police reports he’d been surprised to come upon “protesters” packing all lanes of the road in front of him. Turns out the cops knew about the protests on the highway but had not closed it before Verchirko got on it.

 
If he had wanted to hurt them, he could have taken them out like bowling pins. Instead, he blared his airhorn and then stopped. That didn’t save him. The crowd promptly attacked the truck, dragged him from the cab and administered some Social Justice to the poor bastard and he was then arrested when the cops turned up, but was promptly released without charges when the facts became clear.
 
None of his attackers have been arrested and the Police are apparently not even looking for them. 

 

The last kicker for this bullshit story run by Minneapolis Democrat leaders was an angry Tweet from the Black owner of the gas station to which Verchirko had been delivering fuel. Turns out that no other driver was willing to volunteer for the job.

Verchirko is not a “white supremacist,”. His truck contained neither such imagery nor a Confederate flag.

Winkler simply made the whole thing up – based on stories from his mates in the protest groups – to seek political advantage.

It was a nasty and pathetic effort by he and other left-wing Minnesota Democrat politicians – up to and including Governor Walz – to blame the riots, looting and arson that they failed to control on “white supremacists”.

Now one ironic aspect of this is that while White Supremacists typically don’t like Jews it turns out that Antifa doesn’t either, which is not a surprise given their anti-capitalist focus.

The classic example was this wheelchair-bound woman doing the usual virtue-signalling about Antifa being all sorts of people – “every person who is not a Nazi“.

.

.

Except it turned out that in the photo she had with the Tweet was a guy standing next to her who had actually been convicted of threatening a couple of Jewish guys:

Rabbi Shmuel Levitin and Ephraim Block were operating a permitted religious booth for the Sukkot Jewish holiday in downtown Seattle on October 11 when Williams allegedly approached them and shouted: ‘Jews, Jews, Jews … give me your money!’ He then said he had a gun and was going to kill them. Both Levitin and Block have beards and payots, or sideburns, and were wearing yarmulkes. Levitin is a rabbi at the Chabad of Downtown Seattle.

Somehow he avoided jail time despite multiple convictions for assault and domestic violence in several states.

He’s a neo-Nazi and as such he’s perfect for Antifa. This is who they are. This is what they do.

  1. tl;drTomas is terrified of people unlike him.Tomas will trawl the interwebs for anything that makes the heroic resistance look like the enemy.Tomas was marching with Mosley at Cable Street, with Mussolini in his (fake) March on Rome, he published pamphlet after pamphlet attacking the International Brigades while cheering on Franco's Falangists, and he worked tirelessly behind the scenes to tabulate the whereabouts of Germany's Jews.Tomas is the Universal fascist. Wherever there are attacks on liberty, freedom, workers, women, the right to organize and demonstrate, there you will find Tomas, not at the head of the march, oh no, that takes courage, but in the background, stirring up trouble, plotting and scheming, and making sure he gets his cut of the proceeds.

  3. Anne's too far out on the ledge now in his support for Antifa to pull back, but at the same time he can't defend the indefensible.Insults and deflection is all he has left.

  4. Anne's too far out on the ledge now in his support for Antifa to pull back, but at the same time he can't defend the indefensible.No, Tomas, it is not up to me to defend the actions of autonomous individuals acting on who knows what motivation. But it is sad that you will do anything,anything at all to defend the fascists currently holding the reins of power in the USA. Even though they are not you and you are not they.I will say it once again, for those who struggled with coloring in, there is no unified ANTIFA. It is a name that encompasses a wide variety of anti-fascist groups, some of whom even fight between each other. And, just like Christians, not everyone who identifies is really part of the movement.I can only answer for myself, and my default position is to avoid violence. But when I see the Police murdering a man with no probable cause, when I see the President inciting violence, when I see gangs of fascists roaming the streets thinking they have immunity, then I will take action. Direct action.It was the failure of the world leaders of the time, the UK, France, Holland, to support ANTIFA and The Republicans in Spain's descent into fascism that emboldened Hitler and Mussolini. When I see a fascist on a ballot paper, I will organize against him.When I see a fascist abusing a person in the street, I will put myself between them.When I see a fascist attacking another person, I will aid as best I can do disable the fascist.Tomas and Max – What do you do? Walk on by, I imagine. Wait for the \”bystander effect\” to pass? Or cheer the fascist?

  5. Actually, Anne, when the need arises I put my life on the line and have done so several dozen times over the years. But when I’m commenting on blogs I try to stick to the topic and I avoid personal attacks. What do you do? What have you done?

  6. when I’m commenting on blogs I try to stick to the topic and I avoid personal attacks.Calling out fascists is now a personal attack. Good to know.As to my resume, it is quite extensive, far too extensive to list here. A few highlights, however.- I stood with those protesting the Draft, and aided a few to escape to Canada.- I marched with The Black Panthers.- I joined the protests after the cops who beat Rodney King were acquitted.- I have faced down racists and fascists in the streets.- I am a financial supporter, but not a member of, The Satanic Temple.- I used time and my own money to carry supplies to the Water Protectors at Standing Rock.Not all of these have required me to \”put my life on the line\”, but some have had scary moments.I am fortunate that my early investment in Digital Research and a couple of Singapore PC manufacturers now allows me the luxury of travelling at will, to aid those less fortunate. But one thing I have never been is a tool of the Capitalist Class, using violence to maintain control over colonies and emergent Nations.So Max, where do you choose to \”put your life on the line\”? Do any of these qualify?When I see a fascist on a ballot paper, I will organize against him.When I see a fascist abusing a person in the street, I will put myself between them.When I see a fascist attacking another person, I will aid as best I can do disable the fascist.

  7. TomWhat is the point of all these posts about the situation in the US. As I read them you seem to be opposed to all the demonstrations. Basically blaming Antica for it all.To virtually all NZers it is odd position to take. You have ended up aligning yourself with Trump on this issue. Is that what we are supposed to take out your belief on this issue?

  8. I write about what I'm interested in.I am opposed to riots and looting. Aren't you? And if you're not interested in learning about \”Antica\” then don't read anything with that name in the headline. Your loss.And if being opposed to such things means that I'm on the same side as Trump then so be it. I'm on the same side as him on many (but not all) issues. Surely this has been obvious for some time now?Your take sounds little different to that of the Left's. No doubt you would have advised Todd Muller to hide his MAGA hat from the MSM before they turned up: he's your kind of National leader.

  9. Oh and one more thing. Though I don't attend to the NZ MSM in any way, I assume – and certainly hear from people I know – that stories of the American riots are all over the news and have been for some days now.Have you taken up your concerns with any of them about such mass coverage?Or is it that their editorial slant on the issue is one you largely agree and are comfortable with, and which you therefore cannot get enough of, as opposed to my take on the issue?

  10. I am opposed to riots and looting. Aren't you?These are the people ANTIFA fights against.These are the actions Tomas supports.This is naked fascism on show.

  12. TomYour posts mirror Trumps attitudes, though obviously not with the same language. There seems very little empathy of the circumstances that sit behind the contemporary situation. I know, or least I presume you are well read in US history. However you are seemingly like many civil war re-enactors. Deeply knowledgeable about the battles but much less understanding of the schism within US history. It won’t be easy to change that deep seated schism, but just shouting Antifa is definitely not the way forward.I don’t know the answers, but I am pretty sure they you are fundamentally (based on your numerous posts on this issue) on the wrong side of the issue. To the point that it has become easy to see you in the same camp as Trump. I certainly do hope that Trump loses the election. His approach on this issue is in its essence, crude and divisive. He is part of the problem, not the solution. Many Republicans are starting to realise that. Winning an election at all costs is sometimes not worth it.

  13. Of course he's siding with Trump. Principles, fundamental decency and character are for losers, like James Mattis, George Will, John McCain, and Bill Krystol. All that ever matters is owning the libs.

  14. Wayne, reaching for the nearest dishonest cliché that will appeal to other unthinking bigots seems to be his only strategy. Just. Like. Trump.

  15. Wayne, It depends on whether you think you are talking to a deeply committed Republican who operates his blog out of a sense of patriotic duty and thinks Trump is the saviour of America as it was or someone who is a part of a worldwide effort to destabilise our institutions and the only reason that Trump is an attractive President is that he is divisive and will destabilise the US even if he has to start war to do it, civil or otherwise.It also depends whether you think you are talking to a 59 year old farmer from the Waikato (who doesn't attend to NZ MSM)or a 21 year old kid in Chicago who briefly lived in NZ.Smoke and mirrors.Petri Dish
