The Antifa are boasting about initiating the violence in Charlottesville again as part of their strategy to shutdown #UniteTheRight:
This isn’t the first time they have admitted what happened on August 12th:
The truth is that we weren’t interested in fighting with Antifa in Charlottesville. We were there to attend the #UniteTheRight rally. The overwhelming majority of our people entered and congregated in Lee Park and began socializing. A handful of our people formed a defensive shield wall at both entrances to Lee Park and rescued people who were attacked by the mob trying to get into the event.
If we had really been interested in fighting Antifa in Charlottesville, we would have brought more than a handful of flimsy shields to deal with projectiles. We would have had clubs, baseballs bats, guns and other weapons like the Antifa. The huge crowd that was in Lee Park would have come down those stairs and attacked them in the streets like in Berkeley in April. Instead, our actions were purely defensive and designed to push our way into Lee Park or to ferry wounded people to safety.
The crowd that was in Lee Park around 11 AM were only the early arrivals. There were hundreds of people still on their way to Charlottesville. The rally was supposed to start at noon and last to 5 PM. We had entire groups which hadn’t arrived yet. We actually brought fewer weapons to Charlottesville than any of our previous events because we assumed the police were going to maintain order.
If we had wanted to overwhelm and destroy Antifa in the streets of Charlottesville, we could have easily done so. This wasn’t our agenda though. We believe in persuasion, not violence. All the violence at these events would disappear tomorrow if Antifa were removed from the picture.
Note: Since the Department of Homeland Security monitors this website for tips on Antifa, I would recommend following these links where they admit once again they are an organized criminal enterprise engaged in domestic terrorism against legally permitted rallies.
