On August 17th, I posted the following (from a friend on Twitter):
Yesterday The Daily Caller posted the following:
The group currently hosts anti-police workshops called “Our Enemies in Blue.” The group draws inspiration from convicted murderers and calls for violence against the police, theft of goods, and armed insurrection.
Antifa websites like It’s Going Down, Sub.Media and Insurrection News have been promoting the group, which calls itself the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, calling on their readers to donate to a Fundrazr account for the creation of the new cell.
…Far Left Watch notes that RAM has been hosting a variety of anti-police workshops including a “Legal Training” workshop, a class on the “Introduction to Anarchism,” and one called “Our Enemies in Blue,” which deals with anti-police action–or how to handle police officers during violent clashes.
Despite active calls for violence against law enforcement and revolution against the government, the liberal media has been surprisingly lenient in its coverage of Antifa, depicting them as righteous crusaders against the rise of white supremacy.
I would like to remind Antifa and the mainstream media the violence against the police, theft of goods, and armed insurrection are illegal. I also question the wisdom of drawing your inspiration from convicted murderers. It might be better to draw your inspiration from people who have actually accomplished something. Although our Founding Fathers had human frailties, they did accomplish something. They would make a much better inspiration than a convicted murderer.
The fact that many of the Antifa protesters are paid is truly telling. What we need to do is find the source of the funds (we could all make an educated guess at that) and charge the person with inciting riots. Jail time might also be appropriate for anyone funding the riots and anyone rioting. Protesting is protected in the U.S. Consitution–rioting is not.
