Mike Cernovich and the Merchant Right partied with Chelsea Manning last night at ‘A Night for Freedom’ in New York City. Antifa showed up and nearly killed a 56-year-old man.
As much as I hate these people, it is the same old story of no platforming and Antifa violence. The violence emanates exclusively from the Left. It is a miracle that Antifa haven’t killed someone yet. In this case, the elderly victim hit his head on the curb and went into cardiac arrest.
In Trump Trends: Leftwing Political Violence, I explored this huge upswing in Antifa violence. I found that it started at the Trump rallies between Antifa and MAGApedes in early 2016. The Alt-Right didn’t enter the fray until the backlash after MILO’s Berkeley event was disrupted in March 2017. Like the disruption of the Deploraball a year ago, the violent disruption of Cernovich’s ‘A Night for Freedom’ shows the Alt-Right isn’t a necessary element and Antifa lashes out at multiple targets in opposition to free speech.
