The media’s ridiculous bias against the right wing of American politics has taken a slight hit this week, as Antifa’s violent antics become undeniable.
In the wake of the Battle of Charlottesville, a number of protests immediately popped up around the nation. On one side conservative Americans who were looking to preserve the monuments and memorials to our historical figures and events, most notably those dedicated to the servicemen of the Civil War. On the other side, however, was a group ironically known as “Antifa”, or “anti-fascist” left wing rioters who were looking to install their own brand of totalitarian societal rules against the celebration of any political idea that they don’t agree with.
While the differences that exist between Americans is often a source of great pride in our collective freedom, Antifa as a whole are taking things to the next level of neo-fascism by making it literally dangerous for those on the conservative end of things to express their opinions publicly. Their violent and vile tactics, which include assaulting police and showering peaceful protesters in urine, have led to their designation as a terror group in the state of New Jersey with a petition to the White House hoping to make that classification go national.
For the last few weeks, the liberal media refused to cover Antifa as such, simply laying the blame on “both sides” of whatever conflict they had instigated. This had infuriated Americans as a whole, at the same time emboldening these cretinous criminals in their mischievous malfeasance.
Finally, however, the dam has broken, and the ultraliberal Washington Post has finally reported something negative about these radical leftists.
“In an eyebrow-raising turnaround, the Washington Post admitted that, ‘Black-clad antifa members attack peaceful right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley’ yesterday.
“President Donald Trump then retweeted the article, acknowledging once again that despite much of the mainstream media’s attempt to lionize Antifa, the group is a militant offshoot of the violent Alt-Left.
“’A pepper-spray-wielding Trump supporter was smacked to the ground with homemade shields. Another was attacked by five black-clad antifa members, each windmilling kicks and punches into a man desperately trying to protect himself. A conservative group leader retreated for safety behind a line of riot police as marchers chucked water bottles, shot off pepper spray and screamed, “Fascist go home!” writes the Post’s Kyle Swenson.’
“After author Dinesh D’Souza tweeted out the article alongside the comment, ‘Finally, as if by accident, the @washingtonpost breaks down & admits the truth about where the violence is coming from,’ President Donald Trump then retweeted D’Souza.”
While this is certainly a welcome change of pace from the normal bias in the mainstream media, it is unlikely to spark a trend among the rest of the Antifa apologists.
