Well, here we go, folks.
Antifa is threatening a sitting, potentially outgoing president with violence against his supporters should he not concede to the election.
This is literal terrorism, and it’s almost laughable how redundant it is to call for Antifa to be treated like the terror group it is.
In a now-deleted Tweet from the now-suspended account of one Adam Rahuba, the self-proclaimed “Antifa leader” tagged President Donald Trump himself and declared that, should he not concede to the election by Sunday at noon, the group would block roads in conservative areas and would be “armed” and prepared to retaliate against any attempted vehicular homicide.
If they’re planning to block roads in red districts, they probably have more to worry about then vehicular homicide, especially if they’re going to be waving weapons around.
Clearly, he’s forgetting that many Americans in Trump country may be armed themselves—and likely far more skilled with firearms, at that. Think Kyle Rittenhouse who was knocked to the ground and while being beaten and hearing gun shots ring out still had the wherewithal to recover and save his life. Pajama boys from Antifa could never have done that.
Brandon Straka of the #WalkAway movement shared a screenshot of the terroristic threat after the user was removed from Twitter, which read:
Do you expect leftists to increase violence against Trump supporters in the near future?
If you do not concede by Sunday at noon, we will begin to block roads in conservative areas.
Your supporters will not be able to go to work or to the grocery store to feed their families.
We are armed & will retaliate to attempts at vehicular manslaughter.
This is why Florida Governor Ron De Santis and the Florida legislature are crafting legislation that won’t hold drivers responsible for running down people blocking the roadway during riots.
Straka tagged President-elect Biden, noting that, as the former Vice President stated during the presidential debates, he believes Antifa is “just an idea,” something that the loosely associated but arguably highly coordinated Antifa groups typically say to downplay the whole organized violence thing themselves.
“It’s time for us to end this idea,” Straka added.
