Self-described anti-fascists vowed to confront the rally while leaders from the far right urged their followers to turn out in large numbers to protest the arrests of multiple members of right-wing groups in the run-up to the event.

Democrats and some in media have been in complete denial about the involvement of Antifa in the BLM riots.

We even heard Rep. Jerry Nadler (Delusional-NY) even claim there was no such thing as Antifa.

This is the delusional Democratic leaders.

So time for a little reality check.

Yes, Jerry, there is an Antifa.

Media likes to pretend that if a “protest” gets out of hand, it’s just somehow because of the reaction of the police. But indeed as we have seen for the past few months, violence is indeed the point of the riot and it’s planned out. It’s a feature, not a bug. If it weren’t you could have things like riots in Portland for over 100 days, with shields and commercial grade fireworks, green lasers and all kinds of expensive helmets and protective equipment on the rioters.

Not only does it exist as we have seen in literally hundreds of videos at this point, but now Catherine Herridge exploding another myth with new details about its organization.

Herridge shared an internal email from the Department of Homeland Security which she had obtained in which Acting Under Secretary for Intelligence & Analysis Brian Murphy explained that indeed, Antifa was not “opportunistic” but rather “organized.”

Murphy explained they had overwhelming intelligence regarding the ideology behind these violent actions and why the violence has continued. Murphy said that there was a “core set of threat actors [who] are organized and show up night after night, and share common TTPs (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures).”

Murphy further noted that the “threat actors” are “motivated by Anarchists or ANTIFA (or a combination of both) ideologies to carry out acts of violence against State, Local and Federal authorities.”

He urged to classify it as VAAI or “VIOLENT ANTIFA ANARCHISTS INSPIRED.”

From Post Millennial:

“I recognize we may not be able to attribute every individual as VAAI however we need to look at the totality of the intelligence both current and previous and recognize the motivation for the violence and why people have shown up to commit violence for about 60 days. And why the individuals are using social media to encourage the VAAI on the ground to carry out acts of violence.” [….]

“Threat actors who are motivated by Anarchist or ANTIFA (or a combination of both) ideologies to carry out acts of violence against State, Local, and Federal authorities and infrastructure they believe represent authority or represent political and social ideas they reject,” Murphy concluded.

We have been reporting this for quite sometime and it’s been self-evidence that there was organization behind it, that it wasn’t just haphazard. But it’s significant for the government to make the point to put paid to the efforts by the Democrats to deny the self-evident and then to be able to move ahead with the next step: following the money and bringing the conspiracy cases.

You don’t get the Antifa “tourists” going from town to town and the commonality of expressions and equipment without coordination and aid. Time to get that down and start locking up the leaders and start holding the associated groups responsible for liability for the damage that’s resulted as well.
