• Antifa basics

    From MATTHEW MUNSON@IUTOPIA to All on Mon Jun 1 11:10:00 2020
    Antifa are organized in multiple units. Scouts monitor perimeter of an area & provide live audio/text updates. There
    are street medics, who are trained to get injured comrades out. And there are those who carry out violence w/weapons & firebombs.
    They use Signal to communicate.

    Antifa are "horizontally" organized, meaning, they don't have figureheads or leaders. It's part of their ideology that there
    should be no authority or state. Mistake to then assume this means they have no organization. It's a different type of organizing
    media isn't used to.

    And all the other protesters/looters/opportunists? They are just human shields for antifa. When police try to make arrests or
    disperse the mob, these people are usually injured first.

    Footage of those injuries (e.g. women, children, black people) are then massively amplified by sympathetic media. This leads
    to politicians pressuring police to withdraw or scale back response. Who benefits? Antifa.

    You are going to laugh, but I have seen those tactics explained by Colonel Applegate in police training materials from the 60s.

    Yeah that's what they call themselves but it's a misnomer. If they're anything, it's fascist. I've been casually following their activities on random news reports the last few years and... Well, I'd avoid Portland for a while.

    If most people have heard of them at all, it is probably because of the "peaceful" things they did to people in the Pacific Northwest in the past couple of years.

    That sounds to me like Anonymous. Anonymous is not a real group, but it is a brand. You associate with that brand when you want to portray what sort of thing you stand for.

    So yeah, you have lots of mini-cells doing their thing instead of a big organization that gives Antifa Cards to its members. It does not mean the Antifa threat does not exist or that the brand should not be criminalized for what it stands for.

    By your definitions (antifa/profa), yes, just like there is not an
    organization called "liberals" or "conservatives." But yes there is a
    group called Antifa (or whatever they call themselves).

    Antifa is considered a headless organization without any central core,
    however in every group there is probably 1 or 2 members steering the cart
    that everyone agrees with. They are similar to the early days of the tea part y movement before they became organized and developed a mission statement.

    As far as I'm aware, it's only been the cops leaving out neat little pallets
    of bricks nowhere near any construction sites to bait rioters, so they have
    an excuse to go balls-to-the-wall with their 'I have a big dick' less-than-lethals.

    Not to diminish the severity of the alleged police-supplying-the-bricks matter, but some of the comments in the thread are pretty funny:

    The bricks where placed in all over the city's . make the protesters mad

    Then you know now where to get free bricks ;) And as an added bonus you
    help to keep the protests safer.


    Every asset for police use is usually accounted for. The number on the
    roof of that truck should be easy to trace (although the video is pretty grainy for me to see details). Even scrutinizing police records for "purchases of bricks" would look suspicious.

    If that were me, I would not hesitate to get closer to the vehicle (with
    some witnesses for safety) and get better pictures of the police, the
    vehicle and its contents.

    a terrorist organization that leaves out weapons for mobs isnt a problem?

    As far as I'm aware, it's only been the cops leaving out neat little pallets of bricks nowhere near any construction sites to bait rioters, so they have an excuse to go balls-to-the-wall with their 'I have a big dick' less-than-lethals.

    In my area, the police called Lowes and other supply stores to locate where br icks are beigng shipped. whoever is buying them is using pre-paid debit
    cards so they can't be traced back to a bank account.

    If you go the conspiranoic route, there is no end to your path.

    Obviously the cops who are supplying bricks to rioters have been bought by The Enemy, who is using riots to Destroy America.

    The Enemy is a tribe of space lizzards by the way.

    Ok, sorry for the joking tone. I know this is serious. But I could not resist... you know, when the Spanish Legion wants to break havoc, they do so without uniforms and using no identifiable symbols or assets. If three moors beat a Legion member, 20 legionaries will show up and rought them up, but they won't let themselves be identified as Legionaries... that cops would promote mayhem while letting themselves be identified easily is so "lol" and stupid... not an idea to dismiss, but if so, what sort of LEOs are cities employing...

    Every asset for police use is usually accounted for. The number on the roof of that truck should be easy to trace (although the video is pretty grainy for me to see details). Even scrutinizing police records for "purchases of bricks" would look suspicious.

    Yes, that video could use a fact check. I don't know how that truck got there or what they were doing. I like to believe we can count on the police to protect and serve although that isn't always easy.

    I don't think Antifa is an organized group that we need to be worried about.

    antifa is organized in a disorganized manner. that may sound confusing but their very organization depends on them being so loosely formed. it allows them to act in a very fluid manner and you can't cut the head off a snake if there are so many other heads. they still share resources and communicate. so that is enough organization to be dangerous.

    I don't know what's really going on there but it's not Antifa.

    did you see the video of the antifa guy passing out money to black kids and telling them to grab picnic benches to block stuff or whatever?

    The current problem is around justice or injustice here on planet earth. There are plenty of ways to spin it but that is the problem.

    the current problem is people being controlled and told how to think.

    Thank you for validating that you are ultra-left and only spread the Propaganda.

    Yeah, I'm pretty liberal. I don't know if I'd qualify as "ultra left" though, And if by "Propaganda" you mean "facts backed by mountains of evidence", sure, guilty as charged, I guess.

    You must have missed Project Veritas infiltration of Antifa and the Federal gov't declaring Antifa a terrorist organization.

    "Project Veritas" is a joke. It manufactures more evidence during each "investigation" than every news outlet in the country (no matter what the perceived bias of the organization is) has over the last decade, combined.

    The Federal Government didn't declare Antifa as a "domestic terrorist organization". It can't. There is no such classification.

    It was Trump just talking out of his ass, again.

    I don't care what they say, it is what their actions say that tell us all we need to know about them.

    We actually had someone up here trying to tell us they're a "very peaceful anti-fascist group" It didn't go over very well with the locals here. :)

    If most people have heard of them at all, it is probably because of the "peaceful" things they did to people in the Pacific Northwest in the
    past couple of years. I don't know about you but I don't really feel
    like being drug out of my car against my will, or having my head busted open, as being very peaceful activities.

    I hear that! The also caused a lot of issues in Berkely and Oakland a year or so back. Everything remained peaceful in our area but a huge turnout of Motorcycles lined the opposite side of the street and that might have helped.

    It reminds me of that time when a nazi squad moved from a nearby city to beat a South American gang that was trying to extort tolls from passers-by in a park. Well, they did more things, but they were known for the "toll".
