Why Antifa Is The 'Keyser Söze' Of Social Unrest | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Why Antifa Is The 'Keyser Söze' Of Social Unrest

Authored by Jonathan Turley,

Below is my column in the Hill newspaper on yesterday’s hearing in the Senate, which ended abruptly with Sen. Hirono walking out after a confrontation with Sen. Cruz over his objection that the Democrats were avoiding direct criticism of Antifa.

In roughly 50 hearings as a witness in Congress, that was a first for me. I have been in a hearing with a lock down but I have never been in hearing with a walk out. I was not sure if I was expected to turn off the lights after both senators left.

The dramatic ending of the hearing however quickly supplanted the underlying issue. As I stated in my testimony, I am less concerned with Antifa’s role in the protests as its role in the growing anti-free speech movement in the United States.

Here is the column:

If you read the coverage online or watch the cable networks, the extremist movement known as Antifa is either the new Al Qaeda or the new Big Foot. President Trump wants to have Antifa classified as a terrorist organization, while various Democrats insist it is simply a conservative phantom. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler even insisted that violence by Antifa is a myth and called the accounts imaginary.

While I oppose designating Antifa as a terrorist organization, its existence is certainly not a myth. Indeed, it may be the most successful movement against free speech in modern history. However, its structure and tactics avoid easy detection, which is why so many people claim the group is an apparition. It is true that whenever such spontaneous and concentrated violence erupts, many people tend to believe it is Antifa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turley is absolutely correct here.

I am not about to ever confront a group of Antifa protestors; if they had any idea that I am Mike Rivero's wife, they would do their best to put me in a wheelchair permanently, and I frankly don't want to go there.

But that being said, this country was built around the value of peaceful protest.

I, with Mike at my side, peacefully protested the coming war against Iraq, when it was about to happen, as both immoral and illegal. But violent protest, where people actually get physically hurt?!? Thank you, no; that is not ANYTHING the Constitution or Bill of Rights supports, period, end of discussion.
