President Trump is apparently unaware that the FBI and his own Justice Department are prosecuting his own supporters who have stood up to Antifa at pro-Trump rallies:
“President Donald Trump warned violent leftists and Antifa members that an opposition to them may “mobilize,” and it would mean “big trouble” for the leftist group.
“They better hope that the opposition to Antifa decides not to mobilize,” the president told The Daily Caller in an exclusive Oval Office interview Wednesday.
“These people, like the Antifa — they better hope that the opposition to Antifa decides not to mobilize. Because if they do, they’re much tougher. Much stronger. Potentially much more violent. And Antifa’s going to be in big trouble. But so far they haven’t done that and that’s a good thing,” he continued.
Trump was asked by The Daily Caller about the recent wave of political violence during his administration, beginning with violent Antifa riots on his inauguration day. …”
The opposition mobilized over a year ago after the MILO event at Berkeley.
What happened? The GOP Congress unanimously condemned White Nationalists for the violence in Charlottesville and President Trump signed the bill. Then Rod Rosenstein and the FBI began the witch hunt against White Nationalist groups and arrested 8 members of the Rise Above Movement for the violence in Charlottesville, Berkeley and Huntington Beach.
The message has been sent loud and clear: police departments in leftwing cities like Berkeley, Charlottesville and New York City can issue stand down orders to squash free speech, Antifa can be deputized as a militia to attack rightwing groups and then local prosecutors will use the violence to incarcerate conservatives and nationalists. After “journalists” flood the airwaves with fake news, Big Tech will deplatform ONLY conservatives and nationalists and the FBI and Justice Department will pile on while ignoring the Antifa groups who get away with rioting all over the country.
There is a reason why Antifa are bold enough to stand outside Tucker Carlson’s house and threaten to run his family out of town. The reason that Antifa threats and violence have spiraled to this point is that the GOP Congress and the Trump Justice Department have allowed it to happen.
Note: Just as Antifa don’t fear Trump’s bluster, the illegal aliens in the caravans don’t fear it either. They have marched to the border fence and climbed over it. We could add that Mexico and Central American nations (El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras) don’t fear Trump either in spite of all his empty threats and have continued to allow the caravans to come to the United States.
