Democratic nominee Joe Biden refused to admit that ANTIFA is a terrorist organization, and we think we know why.
Donald Trump and former vice president and Democratic nominee Joe Biden went through a heated exchange over violence by extremist groups while facing the question of how each would deal with the problem. The president said when groups like ANTIFA turn a peaceful protest into a violent riot you can send in the National Guard and in no time at all the violence would be quelled. He then pointed out that even though he’s made the offer numerous times, the Democrat elected officials in riot-torn jurisdictions for some reason refuse his help.
Biden, on the other hand, took a different approach. The former vice president declared that ANTIFA is not an organized group, but nothing more than an idea.
Well, that “idea” comes with a flag that is waved around by ANTIFA members.
Biden/Harris is also an idea, just saying.
The radical leftist Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said that ANTIFA was a myth, in essence claiming that all the violence taking place in cities like Portland and Seattle and Kenosha is being done by a myth.
The ridiculousness of Biden’s argument for the violent terrorist group not being real is when you go to antifa.com it immediately takes you to the Biden website so you can make a campaign donation. So, of course Biden would lie about ANTIFA not being real and just an idea. He doesn’t want to take credit for the violence that ANTIFA brings wherever they go, while at the same time he wants that money train to keep rolling. Who knows if the site is ANTIFA’s real site and they just redirected it to Biden’s site, but that’s what happens.
Earlier this month, the utterly useless FBI director Christopher Wray provided congressional testimony wherein he said ANTIFA was a “real thing” and that the FBI had undertaken “any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent anarchist extremists,” including into individuals who identify with ANTIFA. Yet Biden said during that heated exchange that the FBI director said the opposite.
At one point, Wray said that ANTIFA wasn’t “a group or an organization. It’s a movement or an ideology.” Well, so is Islamic Fundamentalism and an idea didn’t fly planes into the World Trade Center towers. He additionally said the individuals who identify with the ANTIFA movement were “coalescing regionally into what you might describe as small groups or nodes” that are under investigation. That’s exactly how Islamic terror cells are dealt with.
Regardless, ANTIFA has been blamed for a wide range of violent events and episodes in US cities. Attorney General William Barr previously told CNN: “I’ve talked to every police chief in every city where there has been major violence and they all have identified ANTIFA as the ramrod for the violence.”
Biden has got some criticism over his response to violence in US cities, though he condemned “needless destruction” as early as May amid rioting in Minneapolis. “Protesting such brutality is right and necessary,” he said after George Floyd’s death. “It’s an utterly American response. But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not.”
Debate moderator Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Trump whether he was willing to condemn white supremacist and militia groups and inform those groups not to add to ongoing violence in U.S. cities. This was a hit job by Wallace, because Donald Trump has condemned neo Nazis and white nationalists more than any other past president or presidential candidate and yet the Left and the media act like he never has. They created a narrative that Trump supports those kinds of hate groups, and it all Fake News. In fact, noted white nationalist Richard Spencer, who has admitted he is a leftist socialist, has come out and endorsed Joe Biden.
“Sure, I’m willing to do that … I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing, not from the right wing … I’m willing to do anything. I want to see peace,” he said. Yet, the Fake News media went on all day Wednesday claiming Trump never answered the question, even though he clearly did.
When Biden and Wallace advised Trump to sentence these teams, Trump requested who particularly he ought to condemn. Wallace talked about the Proud Boys, prompting Trump to say “stand again and stand by” in a message directed to the group.
Trump has repeatedly condemned white supremacy and racism in earlier speeches. For example, he referred to as on the nation to condemn “racism, bigotry, and white supremacy” after a mass shooting at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart in 2019. The president condemned neo Nazi and white nationalists during his Charlottesville speech, the very same speech that Biden lied about during the debate claiming Trump was referring to the hate groups when he said there were very fine people on both sides of the Charlottesville issue. That lie is what Joe Biden launched his 2020 campaign on. He has been told personally it’s a false statement, and even CNN reported that Trump condemned the hate groups, yet Biden continues to spread the lie.
Here’s Trump condemning both hate groups in his Charlottesville speech that Joe Biden still lies about:
And yet here’s something that CNN or MSNBC will never tell you. Joe Biden, as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee once referred to a KKK affiliated group’s membership as having “many fine people” among their ranks.
ANTIFA is a terror organization that claims to fight against fascism, which is a leftist ideology to begin with, by descending upon peaceful protests only to cause violence, havoc and mayhem, to silence the opposition, which ironically is one of the number one characteristics of fascists. They are absolutely a group, loosely organized or not, and not just an idea. Anything is an idea, including the US military, but being an idea doesn’t mean it’s not a real thing.
