The dangerous disease of moral and intellectual rot evident in radical leftists in the United States is spreading. Antifa, communist, and socialist thugs have violently taken to the streets in London in an outrageous backlash against the landslide victory by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Tories, the British Conservative party.

“The left refuses to accept the results of a Democratic process they constantly claim as sacred. It’s becoming an epidemic around the world,” tweeted journalist Katie Pavlich, in response to a post by UK reporter Paul Brand.


The video tweeted by Brand on Friday showed a crowd of parading leftists carrying professionally produced signs, chanting “Boris Johnson, not my prime minister,” in an obvious echo of American Marxists who are fond of claiming Donald Trump is not their president.

One man is seen wearing a jacket with a painted message on the back, “Kill Tories.”

“UK antifa seemingly congruous with US antifa in slogans, tactics and hatred of law enforcement,” CNN contributor James Gagliano commented.

Andy Ngo, the journalist known for his fearless coverage of Antifa in the U.S., shared several posts about the chaos in the UK and battle by police to contain the violence, even as the protesters demanded the government be overthrown due to the clear conservative electoral mandate.

Ngo, who has been targeted, attacked, and seriously injured by Antifa thugs, noted the clear similarities between disturbing, anti-democracy actions by the left in the U.K. this week and in the U.S. following President Trump’s election …

Multiple social media videos of the protests in central London show demonstrators wearing masks, holding signs and flags bearing Antifa symbols, and shouting, “Tory scum off our streets, Nazi scum off our streets!”

Ngo reported approximately 1000 protesters were on the streets. He wrote:

The British capital descended into chaos as the Met Police struggled to contain protesters connected to antifa, socialist and communist groups. They had shut down the streets in and around Westminster. They demanded a “revolution” and the ousting of the Conservatives.

Protesters disobeyed police orders and shoved officers who attempted to block them from certain routes. At one point, officers brandished batons at the crowd to get them to comply.

The protesters held anti-Boris Johnson signs distributed by the Socialist Workers Party.

In the United Kingdom, the Labour party has moved further to the left, mirroring the Democrats in America.

Not surprisingly, an increasing number of voters have recoiled to embrace conservative candidates. In the UK election on Thursday, Brits handed PM Johnson a stunning electoral mandate to proceed with Brexit. The election gave him a strong majority in the House of Commons, picking up 47 seats. Conservatives have an 80-seat majority, with 365 of the seats in the 650 seat chamber.

Voters spanked the opposition Labour Party, handing it its worst defeat in more than 80 years and the loss of 59 seats.
