Anarchists Call for Bloodshed Over Charlottesville

Far-left activists are calling for more, not less, violence after this weekend’s white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

The Daily Caller reported that activists working with “anti-fascist” (or “Antifa”) groups are urging liberals to take a more aggressive response against conservative groups.

One statement, on a poster created by one such group called CrimeThInc, read:

“Charlottesville is just the beginning. If the alt-right can get away with murder there, none of us will be safe. We have to stand up to white supremacists, we have to shut down and chase out these bigots every time they try to organize, or else they will kill more people.”

“The police will not protect us. They murder over a thousand people every year in this country, and infiltrate and attack our demonstrations when we stand up against alt-right terror. We have to organize to defend ourselves.”

Another group, called Revolutionary Abolition Movement, praised the efforts of their violent leftist “fighters” in Charlottesville in a statement—and called for more “resistance”:

“Our fighters showed daring and a willingness to risk their own safety for the sake of others, and we hold them in the highest regard. Due to their fortitude and unwavering determination, the anti-fascists held their ground and succeeded in stopping the rally. Though we will never know exactly how many lives were saved by their actions, it is clear that without resistance to their fascist terror many more would have been harmed.”

They added: “The American state is collapsing. As capitalism remains mired in crisis, its once solid position within the global order is crumbling. With ever widening cracks in the state’s foundations, those who reaped the benefits of white supremacist society and American imperialism are grasping at any last chance to maintain their position in the hierarchy it legitimates.”

Despite the media’s narrative that far-right violence is on the rise, it’s actually been “Antifa” groups that have been causing tremendous amounts of mayhem—including anti-speech riots like the ones in Berkeley, California, which shut down a lecture by Milo Yiannopoulos.
