While Independent Media has hammered Antifa groups‘ use of violence in order to suppress free speech over the last 18 months, the liberal mainstream media has consistently attempted to excuse and justify their violence by attacking conservatives, claiming any free speech rally, any patriots rally, any protest against the removal of confederate monuments, almost any event that does not promote Antifa or MSM ideology, was an “alt-right” event, therefore the violence was justified against the conservatives.
That ended in Berkeley CA. on Sunday, August 27, 2017, when a group called the Patriot Prayer attended a planned ‘No to Marxism in America,” rally in which the leader of the Patriot Prayer group, Joey Gibson, had previously denounced racism and white supremacist rhetoric, and cancelled a prior planned rally because white supremacist groups were attempting to hijack it and Antifa groupsthreatened violence, was attacked after conducting a peaceful rally, after Antifa groups showed up wearing black, carrying weapons and shields and wearing masks.
INDEPENDENT MEDIA FORCES MSM TO REPORT THE TRUTH
Recently our good friend Steve Quayle offered us some outstanding advice, to ‘take back the narrative,’ to hammer home the truth, over and over, to highlight every violent attack committed by Antifa and to not let up. Independent Media has highlighted that consistently, since Antifa groups started attacking peaceful rallies in order to use fascist tactics to suppress free speech, all the while claiming to be “anti-fascists,” but now is the time to hammer the point home.
Quayle was right, the consistent trickle of truth in contrast the MSM’s attempts justify Antifa’s violence, has awoken many to the “fake news” and spin by the liberal mainstream media, as well as the truth of the different Antifa groups themselves, and those funding themand now, the MSM has been forced to admit the truth.
Side Note– Before getting into how the MSM is attempting to distance themselves from Antifa groups after over a year of defending them and protecting them by attacking conservatives instead of reporting the truth of their terrorist tactics, a quick reminder now that it is closer that Steve Quayle, along with Tom Horn, Timoth Alberino, L.A. Marzulli, David Lankford, and others, are holding the True Legends Conference scheduled for September 15-17, 2017, in Branson, Missouri, which is sold out, but they are offering a live streaming event.
Whether the MSM is attempting to distance themselves after Sunday’s attack against the ‘No to Marxism in America’ participants, or whether they simply haven’t been able to converge on a narrative that would “spin” it in favor of Antifa, some of the most liberal mainstream media publications have been forced to admit the truth.
For example, look at the Washington Post, one of the most liberally biased outlets in existence today, actually headlined an articleregarding the Antifa attack on the ‘No to Marxism in American’ rally, with “Black-clad antifa members attack peaceful right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley.”
Not only did their headline take a 180 degree turn from their previous coverage by admitting the original rally was “peaceful,” but they also admitted it was a “right-wing” rally rather than attempting to vilify the victims of the Antifa attack by labeling them “alt-right” or “white supremacists.”
If that headline, by the liberal Wapo, wasn’t shocking enough in its truthfulness for a change, the description and content within the article, truly seems like something from the twilight zone. (Archive is link here)
Their faces hidden behind black bandannas and hoodies, about 100 anarchists and antifa— “anti-fascist” — members barreled into a protest Sunday afternoon in Berkeley’s Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park.
Jumping over plastic and concrete barriers, the group melted into a larger crowd of around 2,000 that had marched peacefully throughout the sunny afternoon for a “Rally Against Hate” gathering.
Shortly after, violence began to flare. A pepper-spray-wielding Trump supporter was smacked to the ground with homemade shields. Another was attacked by five black-clad antifa members, each windmilling kicks and punches into a man desperately trying to protect himself. A conservative group leader retreated for safety behind a line of riot police as marchers chucked water bottles, shot off pepper spray and screamed, “Fascist go home!”
Further down in the article the writer also highlights other events where Antifa caused violence, events that previously the MSM had largely refrained from reporting the truth of Antifa and what they are.
In February, 150 similarly black-clad agitators caused $100,000 worth of damage when they smashed through Berkeley protesting a University of California at Berkeley speech by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. Portland, Ore., has been the scene of street battles between antifa members and white nationalists this summer. White nationalist Richard Spencer was sucker-punched by a protester in a January video that went viral. And Inauguration Day 2017 in Washington, D.C., was marked by violence when masked protesters burned vehicles, smashed windows and clashed with police, leading to 231 arrests.
Perhaps even more shocking is the liberal audience over at Wapo, in the comment section of this article with over 5,000 comments, where many liberals are calling out Antifa. (Click to Site)
