According to information circulating online, Antifa-aligned anarchists and activists are calling for a 10-day “siege” of El Paso, Texas, on the U.S.-Mexico border to conduct “militancy training” in preparation for “direct action” against — someone.
Perhaps even Border Patrol or Customs and Border Protection personnel currently patrolling the border and staffing detention facilities filled with illegal aliens.
At least, if the artwork accompanying a flyer announcing the event is any indication.
As indy journalist Andy Ngo, who was recently criminally assaulted by Antifa supporters and members during a protest in Portland, Ore., posted on Twitter, the flyers feature images of ICE and Border Patrol agents being shot and killed with bows and arrows, as well as Molotov cocktails, while anarchists firebomb a border wall separating the U.S. and Mexico in order to allow illegals to stream in.
“Antifa is leading a ‘Border Resistance’ militancy training tour that will converge on a 10-day siege in El Paso, TX. The promotional image shows border enforcement officers being killed & government property fired bombed. Organizers asking for ‘white comrades’ to pay for others,” Ngo wrote.
“Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others). Would make it easier for police to do their job!” He wrote July 27.
The Left-wing Democrat-aligned mainstream media is having its typical hissy fit over the president’s expected action. (Related: Antifa armed with AR-15 ‘released manifesto’ before firebombing federal building – Media yawns.)
“Trump threatened to classify Antifa as a terrorist group. Germans hit back,” fake news CNN wrote in a story claiming two falsehoods — that Hitler’s government was “right-wing” and that Antifa is “anti-fascism” when group members behave exactly like fascists in attacking political opponents.
“Trump wants to declare Antifa a terrorist organization, even though Right-wing extremists have been more violent,” declared Newsweek in a blatant lie.
How do we know? Because even the Obama administration considered Antifa a domestic terrorist group due to its frequent acts of political violence, but not a “Right-wing” group — Proud Boys — the Left so regularly demonizes.
As for the El Paso event, it also comes after a firebomb attack on an ICE detention facility in Tacoma, Wash., by a self-described “Antifa” member Willem Van Spronsen, who was also armed with a rifle.
Groups claiming to be Antifa or aligned with similar Left-wing anarchy organizations held him up as a “hero” and a “martyr” in the mold of John Brown, the 18th century abolitionist who stormed a federal arsenal at Harper’s Ferry, Va., in a bid to spark a slave uprising, only to be killed in the act.
Not only that, but these same groups and individuals called for additional acts of martyrdom and violence. That includes calls from notable people like Left-wing activist Shaun King, who tweeted July 17 that “we must take our actions to the next level.”
He also wrote that people should “liberate” detainees “NOW - by any means necessary.”
“History has taught us that concentration camps should be liberated,” he tweeted, wrongly implying that’s what migrant detention centers, which have been in operation for years before Trump became president, really are. “We cannot & should not wait until 2020…to free these children.”
Texas patriots may want to circle these dates on their calendars. It would be glorious to see thousands more of them show up to confront the lunacy.
