If you really think that antifa rally for Blacks in this country, you are truly out of your mind. They are about communism and Marxism, although if they ever achieve it, they would hate it. I mean, they would be forced to take jobs. What a freaking nightmare that would be. They would have to abandon their marches which would never be allowed in a communist nation. There are just two classes in a communist country. The poor and the elite.
In Oakland, the Black families protested the cuts the city council made to the police budget while violence soars. Some of the older residents started yelling at antifa soldiers who were there trying to disrupt the rally. These are people who fear for their safety. Gangs will love it when many of the police duties are turned over to social workers who are not armed. They will be bringing copies of Mein Kampf to a gunfight.
Journalist Lee Fang of The Intercept reported on the “surreal” scene of the rally:
“Surreal moment in Oakland. About 200 mostly black families rally with police to call for an end to the epidemic of gun violence. Mothers at the stage mourning recently murdered children. In the back, less than a dozen mostly white antifa protesters assembled to jeer them.”

One video shows older Black residents who went after antifa after they tried to blame the violence on the police. They got right up in their faces and made their point as clear as a bell.

Fang explained of the confrontation:
“Dramatic confrontation before I got there. A lot of the anti-violence activists from East Oakland said they were disappointed in the white anti-police antifa protesters, said they seemed close-minded and disconnected from the actual violence in the city.”
Oakland police chief LeRonne Armstrong said:
“You can shout from wherever you come from. It don’t matter to me because I’ve lost people as a result of gun violence. So you can’t tell me what this day is about.”
“The fact of the matter is, far too many people are afraid to come outside. Our seniors can’t walk to the store. Young people are dying at an alarming rate. If you can’t stand up for safe Oakland, what do you stand up for?”

Councilmember Dan Kalb said that, despite increased violent crime, the city should “focus on our violence prevention, affordable housing, our homeless populations and that’s what this budget helps us move forward and do.”
Surprisingly, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf opposed the budget cuts.
“I believe that until we have proven alternatives, we cannot destroy Oakland’s current public safety system at a time when we are losing so many to gun violence,” she said.
