Antifa Attacks Journalists, Bystanders, and Police in Berkeley

We knew they hated “right-wingers,” but Antifa attacks journalists and just about everyone else, too!

I had heard rumors that Antifa attacks journalists but this is the first time I’ve seen it confirmed in a news story. Judging by what happened in Berkeley this weekend, whenever Antifa gets together for a “counter protest,” they must feed even if the original group cancels their rally. So if there are no “right-wingers” to beat up, pepper spray, or throw rocks at, they have to find a substitute.

Black-clad belligerents carrying red flags reportedly assaulted bystanders and turned their ire on largely passive police officers who were standing by to monitor the situation. Many participants called for the overthrow of the U.S. government.


The “March Against Marxism” was a planned protest that had nothing to do with the alt-right, but it was canceled after receiving threats from the militant leftist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). BAMN claimed it was a “neo-Nazi” rally, but the rally itself was organized by a transgender woman and other like-minded people who opposed the spread of Marxism in Berkeley.

As I said, the story goes on to report that journalists were attacked and the mob of screeching zombies tried to steal cameras and phones. It even includes footage of someone attacking a reporter from the local Fox station.
