Two Pennsylvania State University scholars researched Antifa for The Washington Post and found that the ‘anti-fascist’ organization’s presence at protests increased the likelihood of violence exponentially.
John D. McCarthy and Kerby Goff found that Antifa showing up to a protest increases the likelihood of injuries 15-fold and arrests by 7-fold.
“When antifa did attend protests, the incidence of violence was extremely high compared to the level at protests it did not attend,” McCarthy and Goff write. “In other words, antifa appearances at racial justice protests greatly increased the risk of violence.”
“Were right-wing groups the real source of the violence? That’s not what our research found,” they added.
Campus Reform has covered Antifa’s violence and intimidation tactics, including a recent Dartmouth College event that was swiftly canceled due to “security concerns” after an Antifa group threatened violence should the event have taken place as scheduled.
The Dartmouth College lecturer who wrote the book Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook , Mark Bray, has openly supported violent tactics used by the groups in response to purported acts of White supremacy and fascism.
Additionally, one Antifa group in 2017 openly promoted violence and vandalism at Clemson University, while another Antifa group violently attacked peaceful protesters that same year at an Evergreen State College free speech rally.
Stanford University professor and Antifa leader David Palumbo-Liu, who co-founded the Campus Antifascist Network, has been planning a “broad, visible, and loud network” to mobilize against campus conservatives.Stanford’s College Republicans organization sent Campus Reform a statement alleging that Palumbo-Liu “has a concerning record of inciting and justifying political violence.”Meanwhile, scholars, politicians, and media personalities have downplayed the threats and violence carried out by various Antifa Groups.Then-Presidential Candidate Joe Biden infamously said , “Antifa’s an idea, not an organization,” which prompted former Antifa militant Andy Ngo to accuse Biden of “downplay[ing] and deny[ing] […]
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
