Popular conservative commentator and a U.S. Army vet Joe Biggs, who served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and received a pair of Purple Hearts for combat wounds, is calling out the Big Tech behemoths for refusing to act against Antifa and other far-Left voices who are using their platforms to encourage more “domestic terrorism” like the recent attack against an ICE facility in Tacoma, Wash.
In an interview with Big League Politics, Biggs said now more than ever it’s important for patriots to push back against the steadily rising wave of violence committed by the extreme Left — against those who simply disagree as well as people who have been spurred to terrorist acts due to gross mischaracterizations and outright lies.
“A 69-year-old guy who carried out an attack on an ICE facility, and he came with weapons and Molotov cocktails,” Biggs said in describing the early Saturday morning attack by Willem Van Spronsen, who was killed by police officers as he attempted to ignite a propane tank.
He released a manifesto stating “I am Antifa” before taking an AR-15 with him on Saturday to firebomb the facility, which he believed was a “concentration camp.” The attack was celebrated by many on the left and Spronsen was hailed as a hero on social media.
As for the attack itself, Biggs said, “That’s pretty insane. Not only do these people openly talk about committing violence on social media, they are actively committing acts of domestic terrorism within the country, and social media is doing nothing to stop it.”
He went on to note that he was banned by Twitter because he once pledged to defend himself against any Antifa member who tried to attack him, while adding that the very same platforms don’t have any problem, apparently, allowing Leftists to spew hate and make threats.
“These big tech companies are idly sitting by while they carry these things out,” said Biggs. “These people are willing to take up arms, they’re willing to learn to mix chemical compounds, and they’re willing to use deadly force to go against who ever they deem to be fascist.

“I’ve got a friend who is now a Puerto Rican Nazi, and I’ve got many black Nazi friends, because they just throw this label onto all these people,” he added. “And Antifa believes it.”
Biggs said that Antifa and its allied groups talk a lot about Communism and ushering in that form of government in America.
“The true enemy is this Antifa organization,” said Biggs. “They are communists. They want communism in America, and we need to call it as it is.”
That’s why he and fellow patriot and current leader of the conservative Proud Boys group, Enrique Tarrio, are planning to hold an “End Domestic Terrorism” rally in the heart of an Antifa stronghold — Portland, Ore. — on August 17 as a way to push back against encroaching anarchy and Left-wing violence.
“That’s why this rally is important,” Biggs said. “We’re a nation of laws, this country will never be a communist country.”
The objective is to let Antifa members know they aren’t going to use violence to force their views on Americans any longer.
“My goal is to peacefully strike fear into Antifa, to the point where they don’t even want to show up to these events anymore,” said Biggs. “We can do that without violence. We can do that without needing to have bloodshed.”
The idea for the rally in Portland came after Trump-supporting Quillette journalist Andy Ngo was attacked, robbed, and hospitalized by Antifa thugs earlier this month. Ngo was pelted him with quick-drying cement, stones, fists, and feet as he attempted to cover their latest demonstration.
