Donald Trump’s statement he would be”designating Antifa as a Terrorist Organization” on May 31 focused scrutiny on the community of abusive far-left groups espousing”antifascism”, which frequently enjoy NGO, taxpayer and media support in Europe.

“We have quite a few investigators in the section which are functioning with DOJ and functioning with FBI. We all know that they have opened up a number of cases specifically targeting a few of the pioneers of Antifa along with other organizations who are included,” behaving Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf told Fox News.
German AfD foreign policy speaker Petr Bystron urged President Trump to”to examine the international Antifa terror system all the way up into the highest levels in media and government, and problem travel bans and global arrest warrants where appropriate and necessary .”
In Europe, Antifa is supported by taxpayer financing and operates openly with secret police, law enforcement and press to suppress conservative voices and parties. Speaking in the German Parliament March 12, Green Party assign Renate Künast confessed state financing for Antifa, complaining the financing is too spotty:”I am sick of needing to fight for money to NGOs and Antifa bands, merely relying on temporary contracts”. A 2018 report from the Bundestag study service also recorded federal financing is going from the Family Ministry into Antifa groups as part of the”anti-radicalization” app”Living Democracy!” A question by Bystron revealed that 9 million Euros German taxpayer financing went into Open Society NGOs.
Composing on Breitbart, Christopher Tomlinson has now documented the foundation of Antifa from Europe, calling it”a warning to America.” Antifa,” Tomlinson describes,”does not stand only for simply anti-fascism but instead for the organization Antifaschistische Aktion, originally the paramilitary arm of this Pro-USSR German Communist Party (KPD). Its activities today aren’t merely against fascism, but explicitly for a mix of anarchism and communism by any means necessary.” The very first incarnation of all Antifa 1932 has been a paramilitary street-fighting company, akin to the Nazi Brownshirts, Mussolini’s Blackshirts and the Socialist Iron Front, Tomlinson writes.
“The contemporary Antifa movement, which has no formal link to the very first Antifa, also began in Germany — West Germany in the time — in the anarchist squatter movement of the 1980s. The company then mostly fought against the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD), which has all but vanished from the surveys, scoring only 0.4 per cent of the vote in the 2017 nationwide election. The contemporary Antifa motion has adopted anarchism as well as communism; their logo emulates the their 1930s incarnation but portrays the black flag of anarchism together with the crimson flag of global socialism and communism.”
From the Cold War, Communist East Germany explicitly framed itself as an”Antifascist” state, to claim the moral high ground against the supposedly”fascist, imperialist” West beneath US/NATO leadership. Thus, according to official propaganda, the mortal Berlin Wall wasn’t constructed to keep East Germans in, but was still an”Anti-Fascist Protective Barrier”.
Former associates of the East German Stasi have today increasingly infiltrated the state apparatus of West Germany, such as”hate watchdog” Amadeu Antonio Foundation, led by former Stasi secret agent Anetta Kahane. From the East German state of Thuringia, which is ruled by the former East German Communist Party, many former Stasi members serve as Stasi historian Hubertus Knabe, in government. Knabe was the one to lose his job because of the Berlin Stasi History Center, however, not the Communists.
While the German government has increasingly gone following the AfD party with police procedures, the road violence has been supplied by the Antifa. The AfD endures attacks that are more violent compared to other political parties in Germany put together. In January 2019 assailants assaulted AfD fighter Frank Magnitz from supporting in an alley. In February 2019, left-wing antifa website Indymedia printed”assassination directions” for attacks on AfD associates, and only a couple of days later, four members of this AfD youth wing had been assaulted on their way into a screening of a film on the Warsaw Ghetto, for example one Jewish member that felt”educated of the 1930s.”
In March of the year, when his car was torched out his dwelling AfD seat Tino Chrupalla suffered smoke inhalation and needed to be hospitalized. On May 16, three associates of conservative automobile workers union Zentrum Automobil were assaulted by a mob of approx. 40 left-wing extremists on their way into an anti-shutdown protest in Stuttgart out Mercedes HQ. One of the men was shot with a tear gas gun in the head point-blank, which makes the man comatose and fighting for his own life. The MSM took five days to even report the near-fatal shooting, company Mercedes has yet to comment.
Writing in his novel”All Out War”, Ed Klein documented how George Soros attended a meeting of this”Democracy Alliance” along with Nancy Pelosi and Elizabeth Warren in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, 1 week following Trumps election. “Soros presented a plan to merge the three big donor classes — that both the Women Donors Network, the Solidaire Network, along with also the Democracy Alliance — right into a highly effective new fund specifically aimed at sabotaging Donald Trump’s schedule and developing a rapid response to Republican policies.” This was the birth of”The Competition”.
All these are resolutely opposed to Trump along with the GOP. The Women’s March, billed by the press as a spontaneous eruption against Trump, was greatly endorsed from the Soros Network. Soros also backs so-called anti-fascist classes and Black Lives Issue. For example, Soros’ Open Society gave $650,000 to support Black Lives Issue agitation in the wake of this Freddie Gray murdering in Baltimore.
One of RF’s founding”initiators” was Cornel West.”
“Refuse Fascism” has been Ground Zero of the US”Antifa” motion, instigating the brutal riots in Washington, DC in the inaugural on Jan 20, 2017, along with the violent riots in UC Berkeley in the scheduled address by Milo Yiannopoulos on February 1, 2017.
Now, it seems, the barbarous”Antifa” thugs have vowed to prevent Donald Trump’s reelection — with means mandatory.
