For years, Americans who cherish freedom and liberty, not Marxism and anarchy, suspected that Antifa was an actual organization with leaders, at least at the local level.
It turns out that, indeed, Antifa is “organized.”
That’s according to a July email written by then-acting Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphey, which was leaked to CBS News investigative reporter Catherine Herridge, who posted the document on Twitter.
“The email explains that Antifa is organized and runs contrary to reports in the mainstream media that Antifa was not responsible for anti-police violence, but an impromptu movement spurred on by anti-fascist sentiments held by most of the American public,” wrote Andy Ngo, the editor-at-large of The Post Millennial who has long tracked Antifa and has been beaten by Antifa thugs in the past.
“Murphy urged for an immediate change of definitions for the violent activity in Portland following a review of the individuals arrested by federal authorities, as well as intelligence surrounding their affiliations and activities,” he added.
According to the email, Murphy said, “individuals are violently attacking the Federal facilities” have adopted tactics he classed as VAAI or “VIOLENT ANTIFA ANARCHISTS INSPIRED.”
“We can’t say any longer that this violent situation is opportunistic,” wrote Murphy. “Additionally, we have overwhelmingly intelligence regarding the ideologies driving individuals towards violence and why the violence has continued.”
“A core set of Threat actors are organized, show up night after night, share common TTPs [Tactics, Techniques and Procedures] and drawing on like minded individuals to their cause,” Murphey wrote.
“I recognize we may not be able to attribute every individual as VAAI however we need to look at the totality of the intelligence both current and previous and recognize the motivation for the violence and why people have shown up to commit violence for about 60 days. And why the individuals are using social media to encourage the VAAI on the ground to carry out acts of violence,” he added, noting that at the time the email was sent rioting and violence had been taking place in Portland for 60 straight days (now it is over 100 days).
“Threat actors who are motivated by Anarchist or ANTIFA (or a combination of both) ideologies to carry out acts of violence against State, Local, and Federal authorities and infrastructure they believe represent authority or represent political and social ideas they reject,” the DHS intel chief concluded.
So – violence excused as ‘peaceful protests’ by the garbage media are actually organized events aimed at effecting certain political outcomes. Use of violence is being incorporated for the purpose of effecting a certain political outcome.
In any other era but the current one, which sees Donald J. Trump as president, this kind of activity would correctly be labeled as “terrorism” – or in this case, domestic terrorism. In fact, that’s what Obama’s DHS and FBI called it in 2016, when Antifa thugs continuously attacked and assaulted Trump supporters at his events.
What’s changed? Apparently – nothing.
