The domestic terrorist group known as Antifa (anti-fascist) has done some heinous things in the name of battling what they consider to be the evils of society, making themselves into the societal evil they claim to fight against, and they’ve gotten President Donald Trump’s attention.
During an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller, Trump noted that Antifa’s opposition is much tougher and stronger than they are and that they’re pushing their luck by continuing down the path of intimidation and violence that they have been.
“These people, like the Antifa — they better hope that the opposition to Antifa decides not to mobilize. Because if they do, they’re much tougher. Much stronger. Potentially much more violent. And Antifa’s going to be in big trouble. But so far they haven’t done that and that’s a good thing,” he continued.
The Daily Caller asked Trump what kind of tactics the police should implement when dealing with groups like Antifa.
“[Antifa] better hope that the other side doesn’t mobilize,” Trump told the Daily Caller, “Because if you look, the other side, it’s the military. It’s the police. It’s a lot of very strong, a lot of very tough people. Tougher than them. And smarter than them.”
“They’re sitting back and watching and they’re getting angrier and angrier,” Trump said of Antifa’s opponents.
Antifa groups have openly called for the assassination of Trump on social media alongside calls for destruction and violence against people they consider to be fascistic or modern-day Nazis. According to Antifa, anyone who doesn’t fit their radical leftist positions falls into this category.
Despite this willingness to engage in threats and violence, leftist leaders and the media have either embraced or made excuses for Antifa’s actions, including the Portland Mayor who has twice allowed Antifa to force its mob rule over the city.
Not long ago, Steven Crowder went undercover and discovered that Antifa was planning to use deadly weapons against their opposition. When Crowder informed the nearby press of what was going on, the press refused to cover it.
