A former leader of the Antifa movement condones the lawlessness and violence of today’s alt-left anarchists.
Scott Crow said he got involved with the group in the mid-1980s to combat the rise of white supremacy in Dallas, Texas. Crow said anybody could be “Antifa” because it’s a mindset.
“Anybody who wants to stand up to white supremacists or stop communities of color from being attacked is Antifa,” Crow told Fox News (video below). “It could be your mother.”
While Crow isn’t thrilled by the alt-left Antifa’s playbook of destroying property and beating people up, he said the violence will continue.
“There is a place for violence,” he previously told CNN. “Is that the world that we want to live in? Is it the world we want to create? No. But will we push back? Yes.”
Former neo-Nazi Frank Meeink joined in the discussion, and revealed he had participated in white-supremacist rallies 30 years ago before turning his back on the racist movement. Meeink told Fox News that even back then, antifa were violent, throwing bottles and stones.
What was odd was that the former neo-Nazi was less gung-ho about the use of violence than the so-called “tolerant” leftist Antifa leader. Amazingly, the liberal made the former white-supremacist skinhead look reasonable by comparison.
Under Scott Crow’s loose definition, most Americans would be considered “Antifa,” because the vast majority are decent people who are not racists, white supremacists, or neo-Nazis.
But it’s unlikely that most Americans — including many liberals — would want to be associated with today’s violent alt-left Antifa thugs.
Adding to the confusion is the media’s deliberate conflation of the fringe white-supremacist movement with all whites, all Republicans, and all Trump supporters. That is patently false, as evidenced by the fact that many minorities are Trump supporters and/or Republicans.
While the media refuses to acknowledge it, President Trump has repeatedly disavowed and condemned white supremacists, neo-Nazis, all racism and violence from both the alt-right and the alt-left.
That infuriated the mainstream media, which are vociferously defending leftist anarchists because they have a common enemy — Trump. It is an alliance of convenience that will come back to bite the media in the neck.
The media — which are 97% liberal — have been working around the clock to paint Trump as a sympathizer of the fringe, white-supremacist, neo-Nazi movement. Keep in mind that his two closest confidants — daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner — are Jewish.
Also, Trump has been a high-profile public figure for 40 years. If he had been as racist, sexist, and fascist as the media claim, why have those claims only surfaced after he announced his presidential run?
Meanwhile, guess what, libs? It turns out that Jason Kessler — the white supremacist organizer of last weekend’s “Unite the Right” neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville — was a Barack Obama supporter.
What a shocker.

Remember who the real Nazi is: Democratic mega-donor George Soros, who’s bankrolling the violent Antifa riots around the world. In his youth, Soros actually worked for the Nazi party.
