Trump overvejer at erklære Antifa en terrororganisation – “.. a group that’s working to protect people”

I seneste nummer af Der Spiegel portrætteres Boris Johnson som MAD-figuren Alfred E. Neumann, og selvom han med uddannelser fra Oxford og Eton udstråler vid og dybde, så er han som anti-globalist jaget vildt i MSM.

Begge er klart bedre end alternativet, og Trump har overgået alle forventninger. Fra TV2 Online – Trump overvejer at stemple Antifa som terrororganisation.

USA’s præsident, Donald Trump, overvejer at placere den yderliggående venstrefløjsorganisation Antifa (Antifaschistische Aktion) på USA’s terrorliste. Det skriver han på Twitter lørdag.

– Det overvejes at erklære Antifa – den feje, radikale, venstreorienterede gruppe, der går rundt og slår ikkevoldelige folk i hovedet med baseballkøller – for en større terrororganisation, skriver præsidenten.

… Ted Cruz og Bill Cassidy… De to senatorer betegner Antifas medlemmer som ‘terrorister og voldelige, maskerede banditter, der kæmper mod fascisme med egentlig fascisme’.

I deres forslag henviser de blandt andet til et overfald på den konservative, amerikanske journalist Andy Ngo.”

(Phd.-studerende Morten Stinus Kristensen anbefaler AFA-apologetisk artikel, Twitter, 3. juli 2019)

“In footage captured by Portland-based reporter Jim Ryan, demonstrators douse Ngo in milkshake, punch him, and yell at him. In short, it looks a lot like an unprovoked, unjustified, reprehensible assault on an observer — a journalist — merely because the protesters don’t like him.

But the aftermath of the attack — the narratives both sides have spun out of the basic facts established by the footage — is much trickier to assess.

In the dominant narrative, pushed by the conservative and mainstream media alike, the attack on Ngo is evidence of a serious left-wing violence problem in America.

… according to a second narrative, offered primarily by less well-known left-liberal writers and social media accounts, the mainstream media is getting it all wrong. Ngo is not an innocent victim but a far-right sympathizer who has doxxed antifa members in the past, potentially facilitating their harassment, and provokes them so that he can broadcast the result. The outpouring of sympathy for Ngo, in this account, is actually evidence that the mainstream media is falling for Ngo’s grift — funneling money to his Patreon and legitimizing a right-wing smear campaign against a group that’s working to protect people from the threat of violence from groups like the Proud Boys.” (Vox, 3. juli 2019)
