As the Right Urges You To Fear Refugees, #Antifa Are Fighting ISIS
Since the inauguration of Donald #Trump
, the far-Right regime and their #media
outlets have put a lot of effort into demonizing the growing resistance to their wildly unpopular presidency, and have continued to #gaslight
those they seek to single out and attack. The fabrication of a terrorist attack, the ‘ #BowlingGreenMassacre
,’ that was a blatant distortion of reality to justify the ban on refugees is altogether unsurprising from an administration that prefers to create and rely on “alternative facts” to justify its racist agenda. In Trump’s America, “truth” is whatever aids his tyrannical abuse of power.
So it’s hard to say we didn’t see it coming that the far-Right would seek to obscure the truth about the antifa and #anarchist
dissidents who seek to counter #fascist
violence and ultimately undo the systems that allow people to wield this kind of power in the first place. Breitbart writer Joel B. Pollack wrote, “the black masks of the Black Bloc and so-called ‘Antifa’ activists should be regarded like the white hoods of the Klan — as the uniforms of extremist hatred.” Some have even gone as far as to imply that we are similar to or even work with ISIS, and should be considered a domestic terrorist group.
