Remember when then-democratic nominee Joe Biden dismissed Antifa as “an idea, not an organization” during his first presidential debate with Donald Trump last Fall?
Yeah, well, the new president may have to rethink his stance because that “idea” rioted in cities around the country last night.
Burning flags, smashing windows, vandalizing property, throwing rocks at law enforcement were just some of the lowlights.
In Sacramento, the local group posted a flier to Twitter about the Jan. 20 demonstration.
“No more cops. No more Proud Boys. No more presidents,” read the tagline.
Tomorrow we take a stand!— Antifa Sacramento (@AntifaSac_) January 20, 2021
Everyone together! And all at once!
We march! We march against far-right terror in the name of antifascism & community defense!
Enough is enough! We mourn the dead & fight like hell for the living!Are you with us?Its #AllOutForSac!

In Portland, the rioters shouted “F*** Trump, f*** Biden too, they don’t give a f*** about you,” according to documentarian Brendan Gutenschwager.
The group marched from the Revolution Hall to the Democratic Party of Oregon’s headquarters, all the while continuing its destructive behavior and waving signs that read, “We are ungovernable” and “We don’t want Biden – We want revenge!” for “Police Murders,” “Imperialist Wars” and “Fascist Massacres.”

Local law enforcement arrested at least nine people in connection to the riot.
In Denver, the march was mostly peaceful until the protestors came across two pro-life supporters.
It didn’t take long for the mob to surround the men and verbally and physically assault them. See video below (Warning, explicit language):

While president Biden has yet to address the Antifa riots, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) spoke to “Fox & Friends” about the recent violence and property destruction.
“I remember the media and Democrats blaming all this Antifa violence on Donald Trump. Yet here we have Joe Biden in the White House and Antifa is still rampaging in the streets of Seattle and Portland and Denver,” observed the Arkansas Republican.
Cotton says the only way to stop a violent organization like Antifa is to meet them “with force.” Until the government does that, we can expect more of the same regardless of who is in the Oval Office.

“These mobs that we see on the streets of Seattle and Portland and Denver that represent Antifa – which I guess maybe is not just an idea as some Democrats have said – ultimately what they want is to overthrow America,” said Cotton.
“They hate America, they are not rampaging the streets because Joe Biden is president. They weren’t doing it last summer because Donald Trump was president. They are doing it because they hate America,” he concluded.
It’ll be interesting to see how the mainstream media covers the metastasizing “idea” that is Antifa. If they give them even one-tenth of the coverage they’ve given to the right-wing Capitol occupiers it’ll be a surprise.
Because just like Biden, the mainstream media does not believe Antifa is a threat at all to the Republic even though they’ve been the driving force behind the violence we’ve recently witnessed in every major city.
To quote former attorney general William Barr in a conversation with CNN, “I’ve talked to every police chief in every city where there has been major violence and they all have identified Antifa as the ramrod for the violence.”
C’mon man, these are “mostly peaceful protestors.” They are “victims” of our “systemically racist white privilege” society. Instead of arresting them, we should give them reparations and elect them to office.
Hell, Pennsylvania morons elected that radical vegetable, Fetterman, to our U.S. SENATE(!) didn’t they?
Antifa is a communist group supported by people that want America to become weak so that they can take over the country and destroy the Constitution. Biden and the Democratic party are going to find out that the media can only serve them so long by keeping the riots and such out of the news so the common person in America doesn’t see what is going on. These people want one thing and one thing only an that is for America to go under a total socialist type of government . Biden is very stupid to ignore these people because they only are getting strong everyday. Once his policies start to hurt the American people by losing jobs, not being able to pay bills, not being able to feed their families they will come after the people in power. It will not take very much to set off a fire storm in America what way things are going. The Democrats are clueless to what is really going on in America because they only know what is going on in their little bubble in Washington. Well back on Jan 6th they got a small taste of how the people feel . They ran like the cowards they truly are . My question to them is what are they going to do when 100,000 come to Washington an decide to get out of hand. The National guard will not be able to stop them that is for sure. My guess is that the Democrats will have the National Guard fire on the American people to put down the protest but that will only do one thing is drive people more forward to get the people in power. In history many leaders have closed their eyes to what is going on in their country and found themselves running for their lives from the people that want to hold them accountable….. This has happen many times over the last 30 years but the Democrats think that this could never happen in America but that is a dream because any people no matter who are ignored and pushed hard enough will fight back because they nothing to lose. Democrats think that they will be able to do what ever they want over the next 4 years but my guess is they are going to have to learn the hard way because they have no clue what is really going on in America….. We the People Means Something in America and my guess is that Democrats have forgotten that. Because for them it is not what is good for the people but what is good for them and screw the people. My guess is the longer the Democrats ignore the American people the quicker civil unrest will come like they have never seen before.
First, they are NOT Democrats! They are Progressive-Socialists — ALL of them — even the so-called “moderates,” like Manchin & Sinema(and Tulsi Gabbard, too). Second, the P-S’s in DC and the states support Antifa/BLM the same as the Nazis used Rohm’s Brownshirts to cause chaos and intimidation before grabbing power. History is a never-ending cycle, unfortunately.
What the idiot P-S’s don’t get is that they will not be accepted as Antifa/BLM’s leaders, and won’t submit to their authority. The P-S’s will either have to liquidate them, or be eliminated themselves. After Rohm and his Brownshirts had served their purpose, Hitler disposed of them. (see Night of the Long Knives)
There outta be a bounty on ‘em; and any shitheads that support them!
I Don’t remember there being any modern ‘antifa’ before the proud boys started beating up PEACEFUL LEGAL protesters. BEING anti-fascist is NOT a bad thing…..but being a s*^t stirring dummy is……both teams have their share. Decent common sense folk don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows…or gangs or old gun sales groups….or wanna fight guy.
I take it you have never met anybody involved with Proud Boys. I have. They were all very respectful dudes. Most were burly looking vets but after talking with them I found them to be intelligent and compassionate.
And I would also argue that Antifa and other far left extremist groups were instigating violence before
“Proud Boys were beating them up.”
Funny….I remember Antifa in the 90’s in Portland. No press, no Dems needing them to win elections, nothing to see, Clinton in the White House, yet they still marched, rioted, and wrecked shit. But hey, keep blaming everything on the “other side” and it should resolve itself.
So, in short, you are saying you have a bad memory.

AMEN Brother! I cant stand either side and am a Constitutionalist myself! IF anyone dont like me adhering and abiding by the laws, rights and liberties of our Constitution then maybe that person should think about moving ot another country that views things as they do? Here in America we are “free” and able to earn a life and live that life as we see fit as long as we are not hurting anyone or committing any crimes i should be left 100% alone to do me, as “I” see fit! I was born into and grew up in one of the bluest states in our countries history but it has never been as bad as it is now! We have a Communist Governor and Commrad Phil Murphy should be either, in prison for life or hanging from a tree like many others that have broken our Constitutional Laws and simply denied it in the face of “facts” and “truth” and yet nobody arrested them or stopped them?! So let it be known that there are many people like me in this country that took the oath to protect and defend the Constitution and Bill Of Rights over and above any President, or other politician/cop/military that dosnt abide or defend that same Constitution and Bill Of Rights!!! Those that break those laws must be punished! AS of now Islam has been banned from U.S. soil since 1952 and yet some how there are Moslem’s working in our Government and not just in our country???! They are self proclaimed and sworn enemies of all that is Good in the World! They swore to destroy the western world and more specifically the U.S. and yet Obama broke our Constitutional Laws ot bring our enemies strait to our doorsteps! And now we have a criminal a 100% real and true criminal in the office of President and nothing is being done to stop him????! HELLO and illegitimate President and we are going ot abide by what he dose?Never and i mean absolutely Never have we ever had to fence off the white house to keep Citizens out in order to take power if that president was a legitimate one! I demand one thing as an American citizen “born and bred” is that i “demand” JUSTICE!!! Those that take that as a threat are those that must see that served to them! Its time WE THE PEOPLE demand Justice or else! STRAIT UP!!!%
Antifa is a puny gang of spoiled brats and cowardly punks. Few, if any, possess any belief, much less strength & courage of their so-called convictions. They riot for $hits & giggles; that’s as far as it goes… Behold the “Time Out” generation!
Accordingly, all that’s required to put an end to this is to make examples of a just a handful of them. The rest will scatter like cockroaches…
Antifa and blm have no clue how small a chance they would have in the world without rules to live by.
Violence should be met with violence. After the order to disperse is given, lethal force should be used to clear them. Fight fire with fire. They’ll understand it.
Send Antifa to China, then see if they are “ungovernable”. They are playing into the hands of the Chines, so why not send them there, I guess they are on the payroll of the CCP. I can’t wait for some proud boy to go ballistic on them and put them in their place. Scum of the earth.
Block off the streets where antifa is rioting. Warn that all that are not part of the antifa to have 10 minutes to leave. Anyone still there is part of the problem.
Home Guard: OPEN FIRE! FIRE AT WILL!
Give no cease fire order until there is no one standing. I asure that there would be no more riots.
I’m pretty sure there are some islands in the Aleutians where they can live out their anarchist fantasies without annoying anyone else.
Cream of the leftist scumbag piece of shit crop!
That RINO Tom Cotton can just shut up and go away. He supports the riots and just wants to appear conservative to get reelected.
I have to agree with the part that said that Biden does not give a f**k about you. He only cares about himself.
The press blamed Trump, because he was a fascist after all. The mayors of the cities where these insurrections were occurring felt that stomping these brats would simply encourage more violence, and of course they could not accept federal help because Trump, of course. They refused help to diminish Trump’s reelection campaign. A few weeks ago, the mayor of Portland finally admitted the obvious: trying to appease these anarchists did not work. But now that Biden is in office, they can take off their masks and ask for federal help.
It is long past time to throw these Antifa people in prison.
