SITREP 04 NOV 17
ANTIFA and the ALT-LEFT
Hello to all you Vets in the Fight, this is David Miller with your weekly Special Operations Speaks Vets in the Fight SITREP, where each week we’ll dive into topics of special interests to you, our Republic and her Security.
This week we’ll finish our brief study of ANTIFA, beginning with a recap of last week: ANTIFA, you’ll recall has its roots in the the communist backed anti fascist movement in 1930’s Germany, quickly spreading throughout Europe and eventually the U.K. and, many would argue, culminated with the Spanish Civil War, probably the first to gain international attention and participation, even from the American author George Orwell. Concurrent to these developments was critical theory, which attacks all that is western philosophy. It was spread to America very quickly by a small band of elitist intellectuals and readily found acceptance in American universities. Critical theory was then taught to the nations educators-in-training to begin with, ensuring widest and quickest dissemination through primary and secondary ( and eventually college) school systems.
Fast forward a few decades. The so called anti-war demonstrations on college campuses, riots during political conventions and the formation of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the Weathermen/underground of Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorn fame were all communist fomented and backed indirectly if not directly and had more to do with destroying American culture than pulling out of Viet Nam. This was the militant outcropping of critical theory and socialist teaching over the decades since the 30’s and can be considered a godfather to the present American faction of ANTIFA.
Today, the gloves are off because ANTIFA rejects the legitimacy of America's very existence (remember the chanted war cry: “No Trump, No Wall, No USA at All!”) and that the people who are entrusted with protecting and preserving the nation's civil society are illegitimate as well.
America’s ANTIFA is based on hard left ideals but are not necessarily tied to any specific party. The ANTIFA brand was first used by Rose City ANTIFA in Portland, OR in 2007 but truly came onto the national scene after the election of Donald Trump. Members of SOS witnessed first hand the violence and radical Marxism of ANTIFA and others at the inauguration in January. ANTIFA, abiding in the old maxim, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” weave in and out of dozens, if not hundreds of communist/socialist organizations operating within our borders using any and all who support them. As we talked about last week, anti-fascism is about control. Controlling the culture rather than just the political realm. This control is most blatant in the attacks on free speech. We are so dreadful an enemy that our speech MUST be restricted. Mark Bray, Dartmouth professor of history and author of “ANTIFA: The Anti-Fascist Handbook’ appearing on the leftist television network Democracy Now! When asked about his views in dealing with (classic) liberalism, he viewed it “ … as an enemy to humanity that needs to be stopped by any means necessary.”
Their cause is chaos; their weapon of choice is deception. The examples are many and are not limited to college campus’ or street violence. Academia, progressive politicians and entertainers, among others, promote political correctness to the point of absurdity. The Democrat national Committee recently announced that it does not want any white males to apply for any positions opening in their organization. Not hypocritical at all! RINOs and even everyday conservatives repeatedly shy away from making any kind of statement that might be construed as offensive. This is no longer a laughing matter. The ANTIFA movement’s decentralized structure makes cataloging its activities difficult, and ANTIFA’s power is growing.
Our culture, our way of life, including, and perhaps especially, the family is disintegrating under the constant barrage of leftist indoctrination. Indoctrination begins in public school kindergarten and continues unrelenting through higher education. This extreme authority considers strong families to be a threat to their goals. Love of family is, and always has been, the bedrock of democracy-Duty, Honor, Country and the strongest social pillar. It is also the safest way to prevent totalitarianism. It’s difficult for the Republic’s enemies to demand total obedience, when family members act selflessly towards their families and country and expect nothing in return. Please do not be discouraged. Stay in the fight. Be Engaged! Vote, run for office and hold accountable those in office. May I leave you with this: Psa 1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
