Left-wing extremists affiliated with the terror group Antifa plan to hijack a “Turn California Red” rally Sunday in Sacramento that they claim is being hosted by “right wing extremists.”
“The far-right is descending on Sacramento for a so-called ‘Turn California Red’ rally on Sunday, November 4th at the State Capitol Building,” “Antifa Sacramento” announced on Facebook last Monday.
In another post published two days later, the violence-prone extremists urged their followers to “tell your friends and neighbors about the rally” and “show up against bigotry.”
After our post about the upcoming right wing extremist rally exploded with 40k views and nearly a thousand shares, many…
The group neglected to mention that organizers of the “Turn California Red” rally have legal permission from the California Highway Patrol to host their event. It’s unclear whether Antifa Sacramento also took the time to obtain a permit for its planned counter-protest.
No matter, because according to “Turn California Red” organizer Jeffrey Erik, a legal business owner in Sacramento, it’s perfectly OK if left-wing activists attend his event.
“We have no intentions of being aggressive to anyone from the left. We invite anyone who wants information to attend,” he said to The Sacramento Bee, adding that his only goal “is to inform.”
And promote conservatism, of course.
“For years the democratic politicians have made this state unlivable for normal citizens while enjoying the protection of the liberals that out voted us. This year thousands of Democrats are walking away from the party,” the rally’s official Facebook page reads.
“Let’s show these Democrat politicians that we are no longer silent and their seats are no longer safe. Turn California Red!!”
The peaceful sentiment on the page by rally goers echoes that of Erik.
This tolerant outlook contrasts sharply with that of Antifa Sacramento, whose hateful posts on Facebook contain unsubstantiated accusations against pro-Trump conservatives.
In one post the group accuses a pro-Trump activist named Jeffrey Perrine of being a “far-right scumbag” and “white nationalist” without providing any evidence.
When local station KTXL ran a report earlier this year about a group of protesters who had confronted Democrat Sen. Kamala Harris at a town hall meeting in Sacramento, the station included a quote from Perrine but neglected to mention anything about his alleged “white nationalism.”
“From foreign policy to what Harris said were upcoming debt troubles caused by the president’s tax cuts, that group challenged what Harris had to say. They lumped her in with democratic decisions made in the state and called some of her positions treasonous,” KTXL reported. “‘I have a huge problem with her manipulation,’ said Jeffrey Perrine of Citrus Heights.”
Both left-wing extremists and left-wing mainstream media pundit have a habit of smearing all conservatives, including President Donald Trump, with false allegations of racism and bigotry.
In light of Antifa’s history of violence, organizers of the “Turn California Rally” have reportedly urged rally goers to mount all flags and signs on yardsticks versus pipes and thick posts.
“Sign poles have been used as weapons at some rallies at which conservative groups have clashed with counter-protestors,” the Sacramento Bee noted.
Some conservatives on social media are hopeful local authorities will intervene if necessary:
Meet them with riot-gear police. Conservatives have a right to assemble peacefully! Vote RED!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
