The New York Police Department is out in force today, patrolling the city's maze-like subway system in response to violent threats from Antifa against law enforcement.

Per Fox News:
 

“This is [the] true endgame of the anti-police movement, an end of all policing & destruction of public order,” the group said in a tweet. “Our members have spent their careers -- and in some cases given their lives -- to bring public safety back to NYC. We can't go backwards.”

Days earlier, an Antifa-backed social media account shared a video of three masked individuals accompanied by a tweet that read: “The streets are ours. The trains our ours. The walls are ours. This moment is ours.”

The minute-long video showing individuals vandalizing public property and jumping subway turnstiles, calls for supporters of the group to “meet up” and rally against law enforcement and transit fares.

“We encourage you to link up with your friends, your family, and think of the ways you can move in affinity to build and f--- s--- up on J31 all day long,” an unidentified individual said, referencing Friday’s date.


WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE



Antifa claims to be anti-fascist but often uses violent tactics reminiscent of the street brawls started by Hitler's "Brownshirts."
