There must be some kind of confusion here.
Claiming that the Jews are behind Antifa is clearly an anti-Semitic canard of the highest order, and a kind of blood libel against the innocent Jews who would never organize mass violence against white people in the name of the blacks.
When Joel Feingold, a housing-rights organizer and editor, was arrested for breaking curfew June 3 outside his Brooklyn home, he expected to be interviewed by cops, as he had been a part of the anti-police racism and brutality protests for most of that day. What he didn’t expect at the 78th Precinct was to be interviewed by a federal agent about his political beliefs.
The questions about the politics of the protest movement were chilling. Eventually, they told Feingold they just wanted him to help them find out who was “hijacking” the movement. Feingold said nothing. “It had a serious authoritarian feel,” he told me in a phone interview. “Having a federal agent asking about the politics of the situation felt authoritarian. This is further evidence of the deepening authoritarianism and flirtation with fascism of this government.”
Feingold isn’t alone. As activist attorneys have reported, local and federation agents have interrogated several arrested protesters about their political inclinations, including what their stance is towards anti-fascism.
The police interest in anti-fascism isn’t academic. It’s in lockstep with the narrative being pushed by the White House. As the protests triggered by the killing of George Floyd have raged, with as many as 11 protesters dead by police hands nationwide, President Donald Trump announced he would designate Antifa – short for anti-fascist – as a “domestic terrorist organization.”
To start with, Trump’s statement about Antifa is absurd on multiple levels. It isn’t clear he has the legal authority to do so. And Antifa isn’t an organization, but a philosophy that guides anti-fascist street organizing. Who is its leader? What is its structure? Where is it based? How do you become a member? These questions have no answers because there are none. But no matter: it’s certainly filler for Trump’s campaigning.
Trump’s public statement about Antifa should be terrifying, as any attempt to vilify anti-fascism by nature defends fascism a positive thing. But picking on anti-fascists as the scapegoat and hidden hand of the ongoing unrest is inherently anti-Semitic.
As the ADL reported, conspiracies about George Soros funding the unrest abound on the anti-Semitic American far-right.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who serially expresses extreme anti-immigrant views and flirtations with white nationalism, blasted Trump for his inaction in response to the protests, blaming the White House’s weakness on Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, the administration’s most prominent Jew. Trump’s most recent of many instances of overt anti-Semitism was his praise of the “good blood lines” of Nazi-admirer, eugenicist and infamous anti-Semite Henry Ford.
Singling out “anti-fascism” as the prime villain in the ongoing anti-police protests is unsettling by itself, bearing in mind least 11 protesters have died during the protests, and the Trump far-right itself is linked to massacres like the Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue shooting. No one can link Antifa to the death of a single innocent person.
When the right vilifies Antifa, it should remind Jews of who actually protects them when racists are on the streets. According to several reports, during the infamous Charlottesville rally when white nationalists shouted “Jews will not replace us,” local cops refused to protect a synagogue and several churches from potential violence. Activists who identified with Antifa, however, did.
For many liberal and centrist Jews, that Antifa is unquestionably an ideology that sits on the far left, together with images of anarchists in masks marching directly toward columns of riot police, triggers discomfort, if not skepticism. Prominent centrists try to play a “plague on both your houses approach,” denouncing both white supremacist militias and Antifa in the same breath.
But, the vast majority of Jews oppose the kind of right-wing extremism that in previous generations has put them in death camps.It might not be taught sufficiently in American Hebrew schools, but fringe left anti-fascist movements have been a defense for Jews when traditional liberal governments have failed them.
As the National Lawyers Guild clarified in their denunciation of Trump’s statement: “The term Antifa originates in the 1930s when progressive activists organized to oppose far-right authoritarianism emerging throughout the world…It is not clear who or what the targets of a federal Antifa investigation would be, and whether such an effort would be lawful.”
And right-wing talk of outlawing Antifa often use at as a catch-all for all left-wing politics. It’s an indication that the Trumpian right want to outlaw – or at least vilify – all politics on the left side of the center. Using such a broad brush when deciding who’s a terrorist should care any one: If Jews were every looking for a “first for they came for” moment, this is one.
Mark Bray, a Rutgers University historian and author of ANTIFA: An Anti-Fascist Handbook, has noted that for much of the far-right, the conspiracy theory about Antifa activists being paid by Soros rests on the racist notion that black people could never organize themselves without a puppet master behind them, and who else to pull those strings but International Jewry.
Well, black people aren’t organizing themselves. Jews are doing it.
So where is the “racist notion”? It sounds like it’s just a description of what is happening in front of us.
This is the same story of the NAACP, which was founded by Jews. They brag about that.
It’s the same story of the civil rights movement, which was entirely pushed by the Jews. They brag about that as well.
Martin Luther King had only Jewish speech writers and was completely surrounded by Jews. That is also a thing they brag about.
I mean, the Southern Poverty Law Center is advertised as some kind of pro-black rights organization, and yet all they do is sue people who criticize the Jews.
From top to bottom, anything that you find that is advertising itself as helping black “civil rights” is entirely run by Jews. We know what it looks like when black people organize themselves. Firstly, it is not very organized at all. Secondly, it’s all about some form of black separation. Thirdly, they hate Jews.
The Nation of Islam and the Black Hebrew Israelites are two totally black organizations promoting a black agenda, and both – all two of them – are condemned by the Jews as “hate groups,’ because they are critical of the Jews.
They actually attack these groups aggressively and attempt to thwart them in the same way that they attempt to thwart pro-white groups that are critical of them.
They spam the internet with hate information against them.
And they do every other thing to attack them, trying to get them censored, attacking their sources of income, etc. Again: these attacks against black organizations that do not have Jewish leadership come from the EXACT SAME JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS – namely, the SPLC and the ADL – that attack pro-white groups.
None of this “race liberation” stuff improves the lives of black people in any way. All it does is harm the lives of white Christians. That is why Jews are involved in it. Jews view blacks as a weapon to use against Christian civilization.
This is the same reason that the Jews are behind the immigration agenda. Everything that the Jews do is about hurting Christians.
Antifa is leading these black riots because – as the Jews openly admit – Antifa is a Jewish organization. Go look at the Antifa “ideology” – it is absolute gibberish. It doesn’t have to make any sense because all it is is an excuse to use violence against white people in order to promote a radical anti-white agenda.
Like a racist cartoon, these Jews are leading the blacks marching in a war on white civilization.
