Editor’s Note: Antifa have been known to smash windows and destroy private property. They might try to take advantage of Hurricane Florence to engage in looting.
“Defend UNC” has spent the last few days whining about police brutality.
You would think that these criminals would be taking the weekend off with a major hurricane approaching North Carolina. Instead, they have announced their intention to prey on the people of rural eastern North Carolina during Hurricane Florence. They are plotting to invade their communities, not to help out with hurricane relief, but to destroy their Confederate monuments.
I had trouble believing this was real (using Facebook to organize a criminal conspiracy), but this is a legit event posted to the “Defend UNC” Facebook page. Talk about bad optics:
70% of the people of North Carolina oppose the violent Antifa who toppled the Silent Sam monument. This includes a huge percentage of the people who support removing the movements. It seems like these people want to become even more hated than they are now.
I’m not too worried about this. I will just say the native Tarheels that I have met from eastern North Carolina aren’t likely to tolerate a bunch of violent, spoiled anarchist brats from Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh and Asheville coming into their communities to commit violent crimes.
