What is Antifa
Antifa is a sort form of anti-fascists. It refers to a broad group of people whose political beliefs lean toward the left — often the far left — but do not conform with the Democratic Party platform.
Many members of the group support oppressed populations and protest the amassing of wealth by corporations and elites. According to CNN majority of the members “don’t fall into a stereotype. Since the election of President Donald Trump, however, most new Antifa members are young voters.”
The exact origin of the group is unknown but it can be traced to Nazi Germany and Anti-Fascist Action, a militant group founded in the 1980s in the United Kingdom.
Most of the members dress head to toe in black. Members call this the “Black Bloc.” They also wear masks to conceal their identities from the police and whomever they are protesting.
The group has been known for causing damage to property during protests. One person who was involved with Antifa for almost 30 years, said members use violence as a means of self-defence and they believe property destruction does not equate to violence.
“There is a place for violence. Is that the world that we want to live in? No. Is it the world we want to inhabit? No. Is it the world we want to create? No. But will we push back? Yes.”
Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, said Antifa activists feel the need to partake in violence because “they believe that elites are controlling the government and the media. So they need to make a statement head-on against the people who they regard as racist. There’s this ‘It’s going down’ mentality and this ‘Hit them with your boots’ mentality that goes back many decades to confrontations that took place, not only here in the American South, but also in places like Europe.”
Andy Ngo GoFundMe
A GoFundMe page was created by Michelle Malkin, who is a far-right activist, on behalf of Andy Ngo. The money is meant for his “his security and medical needs, and to help him replace his stolen equipment.”
Michelle also wrote; “I said during my CPAC speech earlier this year that we need to stand with those reporting and fighting on the front lines. Andy is one of the intrepid journalists doing the job no one else will do.
I’ve been in touch with him and he has given me the green light to create this fund. All funds will help him continue his invaluable work. We need him back in action ASAP.”
The goal for the page was $50,000 and at the time of publication, the amount had already exceeded and was at more than $62,000.
Andy’s lawyer also appreciated Michelle’s effort to support Andy.
Thank you @michellemalkin for supporting our client @MrAndyNgo after organized felony assault on him while the impotent @PortlandPolice stood by & let it happen. Andy is a gay journalist with tremendous integrity and courage, in the ER right now. This is un-American — must stop. https://t.co/W9QAPmq0Av
