Mazie Hirono, Pro-Antifa Democrats Walk Out of Hearing, Refusing to Utter a Single Word Against Their Violent, Racist Paramilitary Thugs, Antifa

Videos of this despicable support for domestic terrorists below.

Kyle Shideler, an analyst for the Center for Security Policy and an expert in terrorism including the doctrines and tactics of Antifa, testified before Ted Cruz's panel of antifa violence yesterday.

He says he was expecting the Democrats to demur about their paramilitary allies' violence-- but he was shocked to find Democrats outright supporting antifa.

Kyle Shideler @ShidelerK

It was a great honor to testify before the U.S. Senate yesterday, but I admit that the experience was also disheartening.

...

But the minority witnesses were essentially pro-antifa, which as cynical as I am I did not expect. I really don’t know how else to describe it. Pro-antifa.

Senate Democrats used antifa talking points to label American law enforcement as secret police & compared them to "right wing militias." This is exceeedingly dangerous.

Antifa's strategy is to radicalize the mainstream & push the center-left into their camp by endlessly expand concept of "fascism" until it encompasses anyone who opposes them. Calling the @POTUS @realDonaldTrump, the police & (implicitly) 63 million voters fascists does this.

It also pushes antifa to be even more violent. Right now their violence is tightly controlled ONLY for strategic reasons. They seek to do only as much violence as will terrorize while not losing their political top cover.

But the more entrenched Democrats become in defending antifa behavior, the worse antifa can behave. Their antecedents in the Weather Underground & Red Army Faction thought nothing of bombings, kidnappings and assassinations.

We know for a fact that Democrats speaking out impacts antifa behavior. After antifa assaults on Berkeley journalists in 2017 led Nancy Pelosi & local Dems to condemn them, they tamped down considerably. I beg them to do so now.

If Dems are willing to ignore trying to burn down courthouses & trying to burn police officers alive, antifa must be tempted to ask, can we go further? How much further?

Logic demands this. If what Dems say about federal law enforcement as an occupying force were true -& its not!- what behavior would not be justified in opposing them? All Americans must condemn antifa & explicitly denounce their political violence or things will get much worse.

Mazie Hirono responded to Kyle's very detailed briefing (much of it reprinted below) by following the antifa playbook and calling him a racist/fascist, because the Center of Security Policy bucks the current leftwing (and establishment "Republican") line and notes that yes, most terrorism in the world is in fact inspired by Islamic doctrine.

That's currently unsayable.

Hirono then shopped her execrable allegations to her media allies, who duly played stenographer.

Label anyone who opposes you a fascist or "Nazi" -- and then you have moral license to crack that person's skull open with a bike-lock swung like a medieval ball-and-chain.


Here's a longer clip, which includes Ted Cruz denouncing corporate America (including many of the tech giants and outright monopolists that fund Conservative, Inc.) for funding the violent Marxist revolutionaries of Black Lives Matter:

Video of Kyle's speech is here.

Excerpts from his prepared testimony below:

Antifa is an anarcho-communist movement, whose goal is to use physical violence and intimidation to terrorize American citizens into disengaging from the political process. While they do this under the cover of "anti-fascism" the reality is that Antifa define the entire American political system -regardless of party affiliation- as "fascist."

Antifa developed out of the communist urban guerilla and terrorist movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s such as the Weather Underground and Germany's Red Army Faction. As a result, it possesses operational experience developed over more than half a century of radical left-wing organizing and political violence.

Law enforcement has largely failed to understand the nature of this threat. Seeking a rigidly hierarchical organization some analysts have concluded, against all evidence, that Antifa does not exist in any meaningful sense.

Let me interject here that Antifa's defenders, including, of course, elected Democrat officials, claim that because Antifa has a non-hierarchical cell structure it can't be blamed, as an organization, for individual cells' violence.

Oh?

You know what other terrorist organization had a non-hierarchical cell structure, with local "franchises" acting independently, yet also in concert for achieving a shared goal of political change through application of targeted violence against civilians and government officials?

Al Fucking Qaeda.

Any time one of these evil retards claims that antifa can't be blamed for violence because it's not organized in a strict heirarchy, remind them that antifa shares the exact same organization as Al Qaeda.

Not that this will make much of a difference--

They support Al Qaeda too.

The reality is that Antifa demonstrates an elaborate but non-hierarchical structure.

The most basic structure of Antifa is the affinity group, described by the pro-Antifa website CrimethInc, as the "essential building block" of anarchist organization-- A small cell of individuals, known to each other, who agree to come together to participate in "direct actions"- including sabotage, vandalism, and premediated assault.

"Direct action" has long been a euphemism for terrorism, bombing, assassination, and even money-raising criminal operations like bank robbery.

Affinity groups come together to form clusters, and larger clusters may organize actions using what are called, "spokescouncils."

Antifa "chapters" form at the city level and join regional networks such as Torch Antifa, the largest antifa network in the U.S, as well as national and international networks.

Antifa websites describe in detail how to organize affinity groups and chapters, how to vet potential members, prevent infiltration, and securely communicate. Such websites play a key role in spreading propaganda, distributing new tactics, techniques, and procedures, and raising calls to action.

One example, the Antifa website It's Going Down distributes a "Forming an Antifa Group" manual. Particularly noteworthy, the manual describes antifa chapters as incurring "obligations" including that of supporting regional and national antifa networks, who in turn make greater resources available to chapters.

This support extends internationally, with many American Antifa groups linked to the International Antifa Defence Fund, which has provided financial support to antifa in 22 different countries. While overall dollars amounts are low, the International Antifa Defence Fund represents clear evidence of organizational activity across national borders.

Antifa relies heavily on support organizations such as the Democratic Socialists of America, The International Workers of the World, Refuse Fascism and the National Lawyers Guild, and in coordination with other protest organizations. It is common for antifa to require outside groups to sign what are essentially "memorandums of understanding" to ensure allies agree not interfere with criminal activity, in exchange for "protection."

In terms of financing, remember terrorism is a low-cost form of warfare. The entire 9/11 plot cost less than half a million dollars and even by al Qaeda standards, Antifa’s low-intensity violence is extremely cost-efficient.

Members are expected to provide their own gas masks, shields, helmets, and weapons to assault opposing demonstrators or police. Even the use of lasers, corrosives and small explosives are low-cost. Making a Molotov cocktail costs less than 25 cents.

Antifa uses a variety of methods to fundraise, including crowdfunding technology. The International Antifa Defense Fund has so far raised more than $53,000 via the crowdfunding site Fundrazer. While some crowdfunding companies are officially content-neutral, others are explicitly ideological, and only facilitate Antifa and similar fundraising projects.

Individual Antifa chapters frequently raise funds through event admission fees, cash donations and by selling merchandise at anarchist bookfairs.

Many of Antifa's needs are provided free of charge by allied organizations.

Support organizations host and provide armed and unarmed training for antifa members at no or low cost. Support organizations cover most major expenses such as transportation, bail, and lawyers' fees.

Other organizations such as "Riseup.net" provide antifa chapters with free access to secure servers, communication tools, and applications.

Far from non-existent, Antifa possesses as elaborate a structure as any criminal conspiracy or terror group.

Claiming Antifa is too "disorganized" to understand is not an acceptable excuse for law enforcement– federal, state or local- to tolerate Antifas private street war to overthrow the Constitution.

Like their predecessors in the Weather Underground and Red Army Faction, Antifa will continue to escalate its behavior unless it is checked.

There will be more attacks, and violent rioting techniques will continue to grow in capability and sophistication. Their cadres will grow. They will align with other disaffected forces, as they have done so far. There will be more autonomous zones, for increasing periods of time.

And more Americans, of all political persuasions, will be terrorized.

Kyle Sheidler correctly identified the Democrats as being supporters of an extremist domestic political terrorist group.

So of course they had to follow the playbook of branding him a Secret Nazi.
