Despite the repeated acts of violence caught on camera, the leftist media along with the Democratic Presidential candidates won’t condemn Antifa.
According to Politico, federal authorities have been warning state and local officials about Antifa since 2016.
Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that 'anarchist extremists' were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of 'the capitalist system,' racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.
CNSNews.com recently asked the Democratic Presidential candidates, 1) Do you condemn Antifa? And 2) Do you believe federal law enforcement agencies should take all lawful steps necessary to prevent Antifa from engaging in ‘domestic terrorist violence’ during the 2020 U.S. election campaign?
Not one of the 23 Democrats running for president would condemn Antifa when repeatedly asked by CNSNews.com over the course of 12 business days.
The Trump administration did respond, within a day, condemning Antifa.
It's not just the Democratic candidates who refuse to condemn Antifa violence, the media has been providing cover for Antifa as well.
NewBusters reports, that following Antifa’s violent activities in Portland over the weekend, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today, carried water for the extreme left-wing terrorists by suggesting they’re simply “counter-protesters.”
NBC dedicated almost three minutes to the violence but even then they downplayed Antifa’s terrorist actions by using rosy language. According to correspondent Steve Patterson, who was also at the rally, the event was held by 'right-wing extremists' who 'went head-to-head with left-wing anti-fascists'.
