Along with having the full backing of the mainstream media, social media, and major tech institutions.
They control pretty much everything institutionally besides the White House and they’re rioting for that, as well.
Major companies have given billions of dollars to #BLM which has gone directly to fund Antifa activities. These companies are paying them to burn down democratic-run cities and to cause upheaval in ours.
The right has always been on this kick of calling leftism weak, inferior. It’s not a smart tactic. Never underestimate the enemy. Act weak when you are strong; strong when you are weak. Basic rules of war.
They are the enemy and should be treated as such. Their kind has taken over all of these institutions; they are far from a non-threat.
Antifa consists of criminals, pedophiles, and other degenerates with nothing to lose. We, on the other hand, are restrained because we have everything to lose. We have families, they don’t. We have jobs, they don’t. We have futures, they don’t.
And it has been demonstrated numerous times over that Antifa is organized, coordinated, and fully funded.
If we walk in thinking we are instantly superior without consideration for their tactics, we will lose:
“Me and three of my buddies were in Portland this weekend, got attacked by Antifa. There’s a Twitter video with millions of views on it. They ended up on Hannity and Tucker Carlson, Ben Shapiro etc., of us getting beaten with bats and rocks the size of cantaloupes thrown at us, getting spit on etc. We were all carrying pistols as well. Opportunity, ability and jeopardy, we were in a deadly force situation and we could easily articulate the use of deadly force, but they had pepper sprayed us. They were using industrial strobe lights on us, etc. We couldn’t PID our target and what lied beyond it, They did a great job of taking our situational awareness away, it was fucking incredible.
Bro my perspective on this changed so much.
The reason we were there wasn’t to counter protest or some shit, **** and *****, two of the guys with me, one of which is a bronze star and Purple Heart recipient. They’re both in the hiring process for the Portland Police Department. One is from Ohio and one is from Virginia. They both flew in that day just so they could come check out the city before they move their families across the nation. Something else that I should make perfectly clear. We went to the Federal Courthouse first. There wasn’t a whole lot going on down there. We walked around and took some pictures. Bumped into a Sheriff at one point. Talked to him for a while. We asked him if the riots were over? He said fuck no, they’re trying to fuck a police station up right now on 47th and Burnside, We asked him if we could go, and he said yeah, it’s still a peaceful assembly, it hasn’t been declared a riot yet…. So, legit, we walked into this thing blind, in hindsight it was stupid on our part, I had no idea that they were like that. If it had been a full-blown riot we would not have gone. Bottom line, man, if you had ever given me a scenario like this and said hey, you’re sober, and you have a gun, and somebody is hitting you with a bat and throwing rocks at you that could kill you or put you in a coma, you try to get away but they cut you off with a convoy of vehicles and the assault starts again. They impede your movement and beat you with bats…
Would you shoot?
I’d be like, yeah what fucking planet are you from?
But in all the training that I’ve been through my life, I’ve never been in one where in the first five seconds of the scenario you’re blinded with a strobe light and sprayed with pepper spray…. That changes everything. They were throwing these rocks from 15 feet back in the crowd, you couldn’t see who the fuck through it, etc. things like that…. It’s just a good talking point for guys that carry concealed, but you need to think through all these different scenarios.
It got way worse after that video ended, they chased us for 11 city blocks. They had a convoy of about 25 vehicles that cut us off at the next intersection, They had scouts on the corner with radios, they had a drone following us, they had a bull horn calling us Nazis, and the crowd was following a red strobe light that was up in the air on a stick, so they would announce Nazis and then people would follow the red strobe light, That video is just the beginning, I’ve got a fucking fractured hand from a baton, everyone of us has black and blue bruises up and down their legs and back, I had a guy spit in my face from 6 inches away, call me a pussy and a coward for not doing anything about it, and then tell me that he was going to find where I live, rape my mother, rape my children in front of me and then kill me.
Had they shot first, it is likely the coordinated Antifa units would have shot back. Killing them all, in “self-defense” since they fired first.
They were trying to rile them up. Thankfully, these guys didn’t let them.
Even then, they still got f**ked up.
There is also massive intelligence gathering at these protests that is well-organized and tracked:
The narrative being presented was that these protests were not centrally organized and that they were grass-roots protests just springing up in response to social issues. My time inside the protests verified that this just isn’t true; they are very organized and are being planned by someone.
I began moving through the crowd and quickly spotted several security team members, obviously watching the crowd for anyone who wasn’t clapping or cheering along. It’s important to note that these protests require 100% ideological agreement or they will approach you and become confrontational, so I made sure I was chanting along. I noticed almost immediately that despite the man who said he was the RevCom leader, a young man named Ethan, that I would later have many interactions with, was actually in charge. He is a security team leader within the ANTIFA organization.
The biggest observation from the first protest was that despite the claims that they aren’t organized, they are highly organized by a central organization. Ethan and his security/medical team have been at every protest I’ve attended in Michigan, including one at the Capitol an hour away. They use the ubiquitous BaoFeng Handi-talkie radios to communicate.
Counter-Surveillance is a huge piece of the ANTIFA/RevCom program. They recorded license plate numbers of vehicles they deemed “suspicious”. At one point, when Ethan saw a man (not me) outside the protest taking photos, he tried to get the police to make the man leave. Imagine, protesting against the police, yet asking them to help you. The police told Ethan that Ethan and his group had no legal standing to ask anyone to leave, since they didn’t own the parking lot and were technically trespassing.
So what are the lessons for patriots?
1. The protests are organized by a central organization.
2. They have trained and professional security teams.
3. They actively conduct counter-surveillance.
4. Park sufficiently far enough distance away to discourage anyone following, and walk in.
5. They are completely willing to use arms and force.
6. The presence of body armor indicates a willingness to use violence.
7. Blending in is far better than direct confrontation.
8. Have a fully stocked and ready first aid kit, such as a BearFAK.
Do I believe there will be a time when confrontation is needed? Absolutely. However, let’s be smart and gather intelligence slowly and carefully first.
Aaron “Jay” Danielson of Patriot Prayer was also murdered in Portland by a strategic Antifa maneuver. It is obvious from the timing and the investigation that numerous Antifa agents had targeted him for a hit. It was not random. It was coordinated.
It’s about time we stop considering these people as unorganized non-threats. They are being funded, they are fully coordinated, and they want us to think of them as weak/decentralized.
This isn’t to say they can’t be defeated. Our side is vastly superior in terms of manpower, moral courage, and aim. But don’t underestimate them. They aren’t the little children we so commonly deride them as.
