Antifa groups tweet threats, smears targeting GOP

Antifa groups across the country are blasting a Republican bill targeting their preferred approach to political violence, calling the GOP lawmakers “fascists” for proposing the legislation.

The “Unmasking Antifa Act,” which was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives on June 8, seeks to “provide penalty enhancements for committing certain offenses while in disguise, and for other purposes.”

“I don’t think the #Fascists & their collaborators comprehend the gravity of the situation, our resources, nor dedication to #Antifascism”

 

“Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both,” the bill reads.

The language ensures that violent agitators cannot avoid the extra penalty by simply waiting until their target is done actively demonstrating and then accosting them in retaliation for their earlier expression, as some Antifa groups have done in the past.

Numerous Antifa organizations have taken to social media to voice their disdain for the legislation, smearing lawmakers behind the initiative and even implying that violent resistance might be an appropriate response.

After the bill was was covered by mainstream publications in early July, “Antifa USA,” an activist group based out of Arizona, tweeted an image of what appears to be an Antifa member surrounded by an arsenal of military-style weapons.

“I don’t think the #Fascists & their collaborators comprehend the gravity of the situation, our resources, nor dedication to #Antifascism,” the organization tweeted.

Similarly, other radical leftist groups took the opportunity to smear GOP lawmakers backing the initiative, warning that representatives who vote for the bill will be branded “fascists.”

“[T]he unmasking antifa bill was introduced to congress recently,” Young Democratic Socialists of America at University of Colorado tweeted on July 7. “[S]hould any representative vote for it they must clearly be branded as the fascists they are.”

While several Antifa chapters did not directly address the new legislative effort, some retweeted criticisms of the bill from popular left-leaning accounts and organizations.

“Pro-Trump NY Republican that opposed release of court transcripts in Eric Garner’s murder investigation, is now pushing an ‘Unmasking Antifa’ bill that would land someone in prison for 15 years who ‘oppresses’ a neo-Nazi at a rally while wearing a mask,” It’s Going Down, a radical “anarchist” blog, tweeted on Monday, referring to Rep. Daniel M. Donovan, Jr. (R-NY).

The bill comes in response to waves of violent Antifa riots and protests across the country, many of which have consumed college campuses, usually in response to slated talks by conservative speakers.

In a statement to Campus Reform, Rep. Donovan said that the bill “expands upon long-standing civil rights statutes to make it a crime to deprive someone of Constitutionally-guaranteed protections while masked or disguised.”

“Americans have the natural right to speak and protest freely; it is not a right to throw Molotov cocktails and beat people while hiding behind a mask,” the lawmaker added.

A new bill aims to send masked Antifa activists to jail for 15 years

Antifa activists could be jailed for up to 15 years for wearing masks under a bill introduced by a US congressman.

 

If passed, Bill HR 6054 would punish anyone wearing a mask or disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates” someone else exercising a right guaranteed under the Constitution.
The title of the bill — “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018” — makes it clear that Antifa activists are its intended target, but the bill’s text never explicitly mentions them.
What is Antifa?

The bill, which was introduced by Republican Rep. Dan Donovan of New York last month, has drawn widespread condemnation from critics who claim it unfairly targets Antifa activists, while it could embolden the far-right demonstrators Antifa protests against.
“This is another draconian measure to actually criminalize dissent in the United States,” said Scott Crow, a former Antifa organizer and author.
“Because the law, even if it doesn’t explicitly state ‘leftists who mask up,’ that’s who the largest potential target of the law is,” he said, “far more than white nationalists.”
The term “Antifa,” short for “anti-fascist,” is used to refer to a loose coalition of individuals with left-leaning political views that often fall outside of the mainstream Democratic Party’s platform.
The group has no figurehead or official governing body, but members — some of whom turn to radical or militant tactics to make their views known — generally oppose the inequality of wealth by corporations and discrimination against marginalized communities. They often wear black and obscure their faces while protesting.
Schiff on Antifa: 'No justification' for violence

The Antifa movement’s profile has significantly risen in recent years, especially after members clashed with self-described “white nationalists” in Charlottesville, Virginia, last summer — a day that ended in tragedy when a James Alex Fields Jr. allegedly drove a car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one demonstrator, Heather Heyer.
Crow said the bill is an attempt by lawmakers to avoid tackling the issue of hate speech and instead address a “symptom” of it by targeting protests.
“Instead of dealing with that, they’d just rather deal with this,” he said, “which is to put a band aid on something.”
“Two groups go to Charlottesville. A big group chants racist filth, wields semi-automatic assault rifles, fires a gun into a crowd & murders a woman with a car,” he wrote. “A small group wears masks. It’s the small group these Congressmen want to lock up for 15 years. Authoritarianism rises.”
Unmasking the leftist Antifa movement

Donovan’s office sent out a fact sheet that pointed out other instances in which Antifa activists exhibited violence, including an instance in February 2017 where they turned up to protest at a speaking event held by right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulous at UC Berkeley.
Donovan’s spokesman Patrick Ryan also pointed out that the bill would simply add a section to federal civil rights statutes to include a penalty for wearing a mask.
“My bill expands upon long-standing civil rights statutes to make it a crime to deprive someone of Constitutionally-guaranteed protections while masked or disguised,” Donovan said in a statement sent to CNN.
“Americans have the natural right to speak and protest freely; it is not a right to throw Molotov cocktails and beat people while hiding behind a mask.”
But regardless of whether the bill becomes law, Crow said it won’t stop protesters from wearing masks.
“If they take away the right to mask up,” he said, “people will still do it anyway to fight against authoritarianism in any form.”

Peaceful Protests Disrupted By Clashing Patriot Prayer, Antifa Groups

PORTLAND, Ore. (CBS/AP) — Police in Portland, Oregon, have ordered participants in a march by Patriot Prayer to disperse after officers saw assaults and projectiles being thrown.

Organized as peaceful rallies to demand change, Portland’s event rapidly devolved into chaos.

The initial protests were a part of a nationwide movement over President Trump’s immigration policy.

Approximately more than 2,000 children separated from their families at the United States-Mexico border remain in question even as a federal judge ordered United States Customs Officials to reunite separated families within 30 days.

Police said Saturday that some arrests have been made at the downtown protest.

The problems occurred as two opposing protest groups — Patriot Prayer and Antifa — took to the streets.

Antifa members were lighting firecrackers and smoke bombs in the crowd and police used flash bangs in an effort to disperse the clashing protesters.

Officers were searching for weapons and handcuffed at least two people.

The Person Doxxing ICE Employees Is A Professor At NYU

A New York University professor is the person responsible for creating a database of over 1,500 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees’ personal information and spreading it to Antifa.

Sam Lavigne, a far-left artist and game designer, is an adjunct professor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He created a database of 1,595 ICE employees using their LinkedIn profiles and shared it to his 3,600 followers on Twitter Tuesday morning.

Antifa, the far-left organization labelled as  “domestic terrorists,” picked up the database and spread it to their followers on Twitter hours later. The database also spread to a subgroup on Reddit that encourages spreading personal information — such as where they live and their contact information, known as “doxxing” — of people who they consider “Nazis” or “alt-right,” which, according to them, includes ICE and the NSA.

“Doxxing ICE agents is good and moral,” one Reddit user posted on a thread that shared the database.

“Dox more Nazis,” another read.

“I’ve downloaded and made available the profiles of (almost) everyone on LinkedIn who works for ICE, 1,595 people in total. While I don’t have a precise idea of what should be done with this data set, I leave it here with the hope that researchers, journalists, and activists will find it useful,” Lavigne wrote in a now-deleted Medium blog post.

Github, where Lavigne published the database, removed the page, saying it violated its terms of service.

“We removed the project because it violates our community guidelines,” a GitHub spokesperson said. “In general, we have policies against use of GitHub for doxxing and harassment, and violating a third party’s privacy.”

The database that Antifa spread, however, was an internet archive of the original post, so they still have access to ICE employees’ personal information — which in this case included full names, what city they live in, and what their role is at ICE.

Lavigne created the database following reports of President Donald Trump’s “inhumane” zero-tolerance policy regarding illegal immigrants attempting to cross the border. (RELATED: Antifa Spreads List Of ICE Agents Compiled Using LinkedIn And Blasts It Over Twitter)

Protests erupted following reports that illegal immigrants were separated from their children after illegally entering the country at the southern border. As a consequence ICE has fallen under heavy scrutiny.

The Obama administration, however, exercised the same policy. From 2010 to 2016, the Obama administration prosecuted almost half a million illegal aliens in the U.S. and one fifth of the prosecutions resulted in separated families, The Daily Caller reported.

NYU did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation with comment at time of publication.

Hate, Inc.: The SPLC Is a Hyper-Partisan Scam

American Enterprise Institute scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, whom the SPLC labeled a “mainstream and respectable face to some Men’s Rights Activist concerns.” (American Enterprise Institute via YouTube)

American Enterprise Institute

The purported fact-finding group is in fact a machine for turning leftist hysteria into cash.There was a time when the Southern Poverty Law Center did useful work reporting on actual hate groups such as the KKK. These days, though, the SPLC is simply a MoveOn or Media Matters–style outfit. Its core mission now is trying to marginalize and shut up even mildly right-of-center voices by calling them instruments of hate, making increasingly strained attempts to tie conservative commentators, authors, political figures, and professors to the alt-right or neo-Nazism. At the same time it elevates absurd bloggers to the level of potential leaders of lynch mobs.

The equivalent of a Drudge-siren moment for SPLC is when it rolls out yet another faux-neutral report on hate, which is always getting worse and threatening to engulf the republic. The SPLC’s report on “Male supremacy,” which it calls “a hateful ideology for the subjugation of women” and ties to the men’s-rights activists lurking on 4Chan and Reddit who boast about their supposed dominance of women, lists as pernicious allies the psychologist, author, and PJ Media columnist Helen Smith and the American Enterprise Institute scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, calling them “anti-feminist female voices” who “give the men’s rights movement a veneer of even-handedness” and lend a “mainstream and respectable face to some MRA concerns.”

You will search Smith’s and Sommers’s writings in vain for the sort of chest-thumping idiocies espoused by men’s-rights bloggers such as Paul Elam of the site A Voice for Men or “Roosh V.” (a.k.a. Daryush Valizadeh), a self-proclaimed “pickup artist” from the site Return of Kings. The SPLC is designating both of these websites “hate groups,” which offers an answer to the question of why the number of hate groups always seems to be growing in the SPLC’s tabulations. Got a blog you use to attract clicks by saying the most outrageous things you can come up with in between playing shoot-’em-up games on the PlayStation? Congratulations, you’re a “hate group.” Just like the Nazi party.

Elam and Valizadeh have said plenty of controversial, indeed hateful, things, but what fault is that of such distinguished scholars as Sommers and Smith? Nothing either of them has written gets quoted in the report. We’re meant to take the SPLC’s word for it that these women somehow “give a mainstream and respectable face” to the louts. Sommers told The Weekly Standard that she used to admire the SPLC, but now “they’re blacklisting in place of engaging with arguments. They blacklist you, rather than try to refute you.” Smith (a contributor to the Instapundit blog run by her husband, Glenn Reynolds) wrote at PJ Media, “I get emails and letters from men across the US and even other countries who tell me about the difficulties and downright atrocities that they are dealing with” but they find themselves subjected to “contempt by society, the courts and miserable, misandric places like the Southern Poverty Law Center.”

SPLC, founded by a direct-mail zillionaire named Morris Dees, spends far more on direct-mail fundraising pleas ($10 million) than it ever has on legal services, according to an analysis by Philanthropy Roundtable, and has never passed along more than 31 percent of its funding to charitable programs, sometimes as little as 18 percent. Meanwhile it has built itself a palatial six-story headquarters and an endowment of more than $200 million. In essence it is a machine for turning leftist hysteria into cash that portrays itself as a non-partisan, fact-finding group and has long been treated as such by media institutions such as the Washington Post and the New York Times. Yet it has also targeted Senator Rand Paul, surgeon–turned–HUD secretary Ben Carson, and human-rights activists Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Maajid Nawaz, calling them extremists or agents of hate (though it removed Carson from its list after an outcry), and it tagged both the Family Research Council and Mark Krikorian’s think tank, the Center for Immigration Studies, as hate groups, though the latter has been invited to testify before Congress more than 100 times.

SPLC’s tactics inspired a Politico piece wondering whether, in an era when the group’s “biggest fights seemed to be behind it,” it was “overstepping its bounds.” “There is a desperate need for more objective research on hate crimes and domestic extremism,” J. M. Berger, a researcher on extremism and a fellow with the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism at the Hague, told Politico. He said that “the problem partly stems from the fact that the [SPLC] wears two hats, as both an activist group and a source of information.” Progressive journalist Ken Silverstein, who in Harper’s compared SPLC’s practices to those of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, told Politico, “The organization has always tried to find ways to milk money out of the public by finding whatever threat they can most credibly promote.”

The SPLC is, as Philanthropy Roundtable put it, “Hate, Inc.,” or “The Anti-Hate Group That Is a Hate Group.” Its shameful attacks on Smith, Sommers, Ali, Carson, Paul, Krikorian, and others are simply scaremongering for suckers. It may portray itself as a justice-minded team of Atticus Finches. In reality it’s more like a goon squad of David Brocks.

Woman tried to burn flag amid Philadelphia Pride Parade crowd

A woman was arrested after she allegedly tried to set a ‘thin blue line’ style American flag on fire while in a crowd gathered for the Philadelphia Pride Parade on Sunday.

Ryan Segin, 18, was arrested shortly after 12 p.m. at 12th and Locust.

Video from the Action Cam shows police taking her into custody. Segin is seen wearing a black hoodie with a bandana over part of her face.

After she is taken away, officers could be seen collecting a flag, described as a ‘thin blue line’ flag with black, white and blue stripes, along with flammable paint stripper.

“The lady was about to burn a flag in the middle of a crowded area, so the cops had to detain her,” a witness told Action News.

Segin, a resident of Woodbine, New Jersey, was charged with attempted arson, risking a catastrophe and related offenses.

ADL explain who Antifa are…

Antifa face off against white supremacists in Charlottesville, VA

Edu Bayer for the New York Times

Antifa: Definition and History:

In recent weeks, law enforcement officers across the United States have faced the challenge of keeping the peace at a number of far-right rallies and demonstrations. Their task, to secure both safety and First Amendment rights, has been made more difficult not only by the white supremacists and other bigots who have shown up in Charlottesville, Berkeley and Boston, but also by a relatively small number of counter-protesters who engage in confrontational tactics, including violence, in their opposition to the right-wing extremists.  Most recently, the August 27th anti-racist march in Berkeley, attended by thousands of peaceful counter-protesters, turned chaotic when a number of anarchists appeared and allegedly attacked several right-wing or pro-Trump attendees.

These violent counter-protesters are often members of the “antifa” (short for “antifascist”), a loose collection of groups, networks and individuals who believe in active, aggressive opposition to far right-wing movements. Their ideology is rooted in the assumption that the Nazi party would never have been able to come to power in Germany if people had more aggressively fought them in the streets in the 1920s and 30s. Most antifa come from the anarchist movement or from the far left, though since Trump’s election, some people with more mainstream political backgrounds have also joined their ranks.

These antifa sometimes use a logo with a double flag, usually in black and red. The antifa movement began in the 1960s in Europe, and had reached the US by the end of the 1970s.  Most people who show up to counter or oppose white supremacist public events are peaceful demonstrators, but when antifa show up, as they frequently do, they can increase the chances that an event may turn violent.

Today, antifa activists focus on harassing right wing extremists both online and in real life.  Antifa is not a unified group; it is loose collection of local/regional groups and individuals. Their presence at a protest is intended to intimidate and dissuade racists, but the use of violent measures by some antifa against their adversaries can create a vicious, self-defeating cycle of attacks, counter-attacks and blame. This is why most established civil rights organizations criticize antifa tactics as dangerous and counterproductive.

The current political climate increases the chances of violent confrontations at protests and rallies. Antifa have expanded their definition of fascist/fascism to include not just white supremacists and other extremists, but also many conservatives and supporters of President Trump.  In Berkeley, for example, some antifa were captured on video harassing Trump supporters with no known extremist connections.  Antifa have also falsely characterized some recent right wing rallies as “Nazi” events, even though they were not actually white supremacist in nature.

Another concern is the misapplication of the label “antifa” to include all counter-protesters, rather than limiting it to those who proactively seek physical confrontations with their perceived fascist adversaries.  It is critical to understand how antifa fit within the larger counter-protest efforts. Doing so allows law enforcement to focus their resources on the minority who engage in violence without curtailing the civil rights of the majority of peaceful individuals who just want their voices to be heard.

All forms of antifa violence are problematic. Additionally, violence plays into the “victimhood” narrative of white supremacists and other right-wing extremists and can even be used for recruiting purposes.  Images of these “free speech” protesters being beaten by black-clad and bandana-masked antifa provide right wing extremists with a powerful propaganda tool.

That said, it is important to reject attempts to claim equivalence between the antifa and the white supremacist groups they oppose. The antifa reject racism but use unacceptable tactics. White supremacists use even more extreme violence to spread their ideologies of hate, to intimidate ethnic minorities, and undermine democratic norms. Right-wing extremists have been one of the largest and most consistent sources of domestic terror incidents in the United States for many years; they have murdered hundreds of people in this country over the last ten years alone.  To date, there have not been any known antifa-related murders.

Antifa: Scope and Tactics:

Today’s antifa argue they are the on-the-ground defense against individuals they believe are promoting fascism in the United States.  However, antifa, who have many anti-police anarchists in their ranks, can also target law enforcement with both verbal and physical assaults because they believe the police are providing cover for white supremacists.  They will sometimes chant against fascism and against law enforcement in the same breath.

While some antifa use their fists, other violent tactics include throwing projectiles, including bricks, crowbars, homemade slingshots, metal chains, water bottles, and balloons filled with urine and feces.  They have deployed noxious gases, pushed through police barricades, and attempted to exploit any perceived weakness in law enforcement presence.

Away from rallies, they also engage in “doxxing,” exposing their adversaries’ identities, addresses, jobs and other private information. This can lead to their opponents being harassed or losing their jobs, among other consequences. Members of the alt right and other right wing extremists have responded with their own doxxing campaigns, and by perpetuating hateful and violent narratives using fake “antifa” social media accounts.

Because there is no unifying body for antifa, it is impossible to know how many “members” are currently active.  Different localities have antifa populations of different strengths, but antifa are also sometimes willing to travel hundreds of miles to oppose a white supremacist event.

Fake antifa posts reportedly tricked police into massive show of force for neo-Nazi rally

Why are police citing fake antifa posts to plan for security?

One of the big questions hanging over last month’s neo-Nazi rally in the small town of Newnan, Georgia centers on the outsized police presence that showed up to keep tabs on the event.

Why did hundreds of heavily armed police — numbering some 700, according to an estimate from Slate — show up in force for a paltry turnout of a few dozen white supremacists, going so far as to swing their guns at counter-protesters? Why did police act like they expected thousands more people, who could potentially incite violence, to arrive?

Thanks to a public records request, we may finally have an answer — and one that doesn’t reflect well on local authorities.

Emails obtained by Unicorn Riot  —  a self-described “decentralized… non-profit media organization” — revealed that officials from the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office shared a Facebook post with one another in the lead-up to the rally claiming that counter-protesters in Newnan had dotted the city with stockpiles of “urine, feces, cans of peper spray or wasp spray, [and] ball bats,” among other weapons.

The post estimated that upwards of 13,000 white supremacists and counter-protests may show up, and claimed that people “will be targeted if [they] wear any clothing supporting trump [sic], America, or anything that leans to the right.”

Lieutenant Colonel Tony Grant, who forwarded the Facebook post to the rest of the higher-ups at the Coweta County Sheriff department, wrote, “Don’t guess these folks have heard of TEAM COWETA!!!!!”

There was one major problem, though: The Facebook post the Coweta County Sheriff’s officers shared with one another appears not to be from any reputable information source, but from the Facebook account of Clay Perry, a self-described “patriot” who said he’s “read [antifa] propaganda for a while now.”

One commenter on Perry’s wrote, “Left alone the Nazis would march right through town and out the other side. Antifa will bring the violence.” Added another who shared the post, “George Soros invading Newnan, Ga!!”

However, a stray Facebook post from a self-described “patriot” doesn’t appear to be the only bit of social media flotsam that informed local authorities’ massive security presence. Unicorn Riot pointed to another Facebook post shared by the city from an account called Valdosta Antifa. The post pledged that 10,000 antifa activists would show up at the rally — there to erect “status of Pauly Shore” and “to turn the fricken [sic] frogs gay.”

The post, as it is, is clearly satirical. (As the post closed, “You know, Valdosta Antifa is really just three kids in a trench coat and fake mustache right?”) It is unclear why the city cited the post in a request for information about security preparations.

Newnan Police Chief Douglas “Buster” Meadows did not return ThinkProgress’ request for comment.

Fake antifa posts have, of course, fooled others. But the local officials tasked with keeping Newnan safe appear to be the first police and security officers so clearly fooled by fake antifa material, and to have that fake material inform their own security decisions.

Masked Antifa gang attack woman journalist as Canadian police watch, refuse to help

Faith Goldy | Goldy being attacked by Antifa gang in Quebec, May 19, 2018.

ROXHAM ROAD, Quebec, May 25, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A conservative woman journalist physically assaulted by self-styled “antifa” protesters at a Quebec immigration protest is launching a complaint against both her attackers and the police for their inaction.

And in the wake of the disturbing attack, conservative commentators have accused the mainstream media of burying the story because they disagree with Faith Goldy’s political views.

Indeed, Goldy’s former boss, Rebel Media founder Ezra Levant, charges the media of “having a good laugh” over the violent incident.

Goldy was set upon by a far-left gang on May 19 while attempting to video an anti-immigration protest at the illegal border crossing on Roxham Road, near Colette, Quebec.

As shown in the video below, Goldy was shoved and pushed by several men and some women, some with face masks. They struck her phone from her hands and kicked it into the ditch, and surrounded her, kicking and punching her.

Goldy’s sole defender was her companion, a middle-aged man in a blue windbreaker, who tried to stand between her and her attackers, and scrambled to retrieve her phone while she cried, “Stop it! Stop it!”

Police in full riot gear were on hand, but none of them intervened.

Mainstream media were also out in strength, but they too, either ignored the incident or minimized it, as Ali Taghva pointed out in a scathing commentary in Post Millennial.

“When Canadians can openly see that what the media is telling us stands in stark contrast with actual events, we lose faith in them and the institutions that support them,” wrote Taghva.

“I do not agree with Faith Goldy or her views. Do I think she is far right? Yup,” he noted. “But do I think she deserves to be physically attacked?”

Those assaulting Goldy are “not grand defenders of refugees, they are not peaceful protesters – they are fanatics representing some of the most dangerous parts of the left wing,” Taghva wrote.

“If Canada and the mainstream are willing to define the hateful portion of the right as the alt-right, then it’s high time that the same distaste and worry was put towards the dangerous extremists of the left.”

MacKenzie had not responded to a request for comment by LifeSiteNews by deadline.

Levant also excoriated CBC Montreal reporter Jonathan Montpetit, who tweeted from the protest:

“Yeah, I’m guessing she was trying to call someone who cared about her, or just about the rule of law,” wrote Levant. “Because no-one on the scene did — not the male feminist reporters, not the police who stood there like potted plants.”

He also decried that Montpetit’s tweet was “liked” by “all kinds of journalists, including the CBC’s feminist political boss, Rosemary Barton.”

Montpetit had not responded to a request for comment from LifeSiteNews by deadline.

While his report does not mention the violence against Goldy, it explains the far-right is using the illegal border crossings to “grow its membership.”

There have been 7,600 asylum seekers coming into Canada from the United States at illegal entry points so far this year, and 20,000 last year, reports Montpetit.

Indeed, Roxham Road, situated between official border crossings at Colette and Hemingford, has morphed from an obscure rural road to “a veritable refugee camp, with semi-permanent structures,” noted Levant.

It was Goldy who, as a Rebel Media reporter, uncovered the thriving business of moving people illicitly across the board from New York to Quebec via Roxham Road, he pointed out.

As for Goldy, she is “in the process of filing an official complaint, both against the police for their inaction and against the Alt Left attackers,” she told LifeSiteNews in an email.

Evidently undaunted by the incident, she is heading back to Roxham Road for a peaceful protest at 3:00 p.m. on June 3.

“Prime Minister Trudeau erased our southern border without a democratic mandate,” she wrote. “Without a national referendum on such a radical policy shift, Canadians will take their voices to the streets!”

As for her mysterious unflappable protector in the blue windbreaker, “the body man I had acquired for the day was unable to make it at the last minute, so the person with me was not official Security but a sixty-year-old civilian who was travelling for me, mostly for company,” Goldy wrote.

“He is not right wing or an activist but says the attack, police inaction, and lack of media coverage has ‘red pilled’ him,” she added.

Pedophile Antifa Leader Found Guilty Of Raping Underage Girl

Article taken from: https://yournewswire.com/pedophile-antifa-leader-girl/

ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter leader, Micah Rhodes, has been found guilty of the statutory rape of an underage girl.

ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter leader, Micah Rhodes, has been found guilty of the statutory rape of an underage girl and will be sentenced to prison on Monday.

Rhodes, 24, who received funding from George Soros as part of the Antifa Portland Resistance group, was found guilty by a Washington County Circuit Court jury on Friday.

The girl’s personal details have been withheld to respect her privacy. The jury’s 10-2 verdict came after a 1.5-day trial, according to reports.

Rhodes will be sentenced in May, however he is also scheduled next week to go to trial in Multnomah County Circuit Court in a separate case relating to sex with an underage boy.

Court papers say Rhodes groomed the boy on the internet and the boy wasn’t able to consent because of his age.

Rhodes faces four counts of second-degree sexual abuse and one count of third-degree sexual abuse.

The Antifa leader was on supervision by the Oregon Youth Authority for sexual abuse and sodomy at the time he was charged for alleged abuse in both counties, authorities say. Juvenile records aren’t public, so details of the earlier case aren’t available.

Rhodes had been required to register as a sex offender at the time he was charged in the Multnomah and Washington county cases, however that didn’t stop Antifa from allowing him to work closely with underage boys and girls.

It also didn’t stop George Soros from pumping millions of dollars into the movement.

As an Antifa leader, Rhodes was frequently seen at marches and sitting in on meetings at Portland City Hall. He also was a leader of Portland’s Resistance, a group that formed after Donald Trump won the presidential election in November 2016.

He helped organize people during night after night of violent and destructive protests immediately after Trump’s victory.

Rhodes is facing as many as five years in prison for the statutory rape of the underage girl if the prosecution successfully argues that Rhodes’ felony was particularly egregious. The court case regarding the accusations of rape of an underage boy begin next week.

Turkey expels Israeli consul in spat over Gaza killings

Expulsion is latest development in strained relations as Ankara criticises killing of more than 60 Palestinians in Gaza.

Erdogan has been a vocal critic of the violence in Gaza and the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem [Anadolu]
Erdogan has been a vocal critic of the violence in Gaza and the opening of the

Turkey’s foreign ministry has asked Israel’s consul-general in Istanbul to leave the country “for some time”, after Israeli forces killed more than 60 Palestinians during protests in the Gaza Strip.

On Tuesday, the ministry made a similar call to Israel’s ambassador to Ankara, which received a reciprocal response from Israel on the same day.

Israel protested on Wednesday over what it called Turkey’s “unbecoming treatment” of its expelled ambassador, after the envoy was shown on Turkish media undergoing an airport security pat-down in public view.

In response to Ambassador Eitan Naveh’s treatment, Israel’s foreign ministry said in a statement that it summoned the Turkish embassy’s charge d’affaires.

Naveh had only been in his post since December 2016, after a reconciliation deal earlier that year ended a dispute over the May 2010 deadly storming of a Turkish ship by Israeli commandos that saw relations downgraded for more than half a decade.

Ankara has been a vocal critic of the Israeli violence against Palestinians in Gaza and the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Heightened rhetoric

On Monday, Israeli forces killed more than 60 Palestinian protesters in Gaza, as tens of thousands of people rallied as part of the Great March of Return and against the US embassy move, which overturned decades of US foreign policy.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, currently on a visit to Britain, had on Monday stepped up his rhetoric, accusing Israel of “state terror” and “genocide” over the killings.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hit back at Erdogan, with a tweeted jibe in Hebrew that as a leading supporter of Hamas “there’s no doubt he’s an expert on terror and slaughter”.

Responding on Twitter in English on Tuesday, Erdogan said: “Netanyahu is the PM of an apartheid state that has occupied a defenceless people’s lands for 60+ yrs in violation of UN resolutions”.

“He has the blood of Palestinians on his hands and can’t cover up crimes by attacking Turkey,” he added.
