And just like that, the DemProg Scamdemic hysteria went away.
Initially seen as an outpouring of black rage following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last week, many of the riots that have broken out in major US cities have been blamed on Antifa militants. Protesters have reported seeing Antifa ‘organizers’ directing rioters, and supplying them with bricks, bats, and other weapons.

Antifa and the original fascists have a lot in common.
But, I keep hearing antifa isn’t an organized group. One entity can’t direct others without being organized.
Background on the original antifa: It was affiliated with communists…equally totalitarian:
Short for the German phrase, “Antifaschistische Aktion,” Antifa served as the paramilitary arm of the German Communist Party (KPD), which the Soviet Union funded. In other words, Antifa became the German Communists’ version of the Nazis’ brown-shirted SA.
The KPD made no secret of Antifa’s affiliation. A 1932 photo of KPD headquarters in Berlin prominently displayed the double-flagged Antifa emblem among other Communist symbols and slogans. In a photo from the 1932 Unity Congress of Antifa in Berlin, the double-flagged banner shared space with the hammer and sickle and with two large cartoons. One supported the KPD, the other mocked the SPD, Germany’s Social Democratic Party.
Today’s Antifa embrace those roots. During February’s protest in Berkeley, masked Antifa agitators caused nearly $100,000 in damage by starting fires, breaking windows, assaulting bystanders with pepper spray and flagpoles, painting graffiti on nearby businesses, and destroying automatic teller machines. “Refuse Fascism,” the group organizing Saturday’s protests, is controlled by the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, which seeks to create a Marxist United States through violent revolution.
Now, President Trump is about to make their terrorist status official.
