EXCLUSIVE: Antifa planned anti-government insurgency for months, law enforcement official says

Bill Gertz

Activists of the far-left Antifa movement began planning to foment a nationwide anti-government insurgency as early as November as the U.S. presidential campaign season kicked off in earnest, according to a law enforcement official with access to intelligence behind the shadowy group.

The radical movement has emerged as a key focus for investigators in the wake of violent protests and looting across the country after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis, according to U.S. law enforcement officials and private security experts.

The law enforcement official would not speak on the record about Antifa’s plans as the election season heats up, but longtime analysts of the group say such a move would be entirely in character.

Even if one takes the tact, “talk to the protesters”, a noble aim, you have a lot of different players in this whole thing. And yes, talking to the protesters should be done… and it is being done. More on Antifa in the news, Project Veritas went undercover.

It is not surprising that the “far-left” group Antifia is seen as the boogy man by the “far-right” Washington Times.

I think most people consider Antifa a far-left fringe group the same way people consider white supremacists a far-right fringe group. Does everything have to incur a complaint?

I think both groups are idiots.

I have revised my statement to reflect a more reasonable complaint. It’s not that they are good. It is just that they are not behind everything bad that happens.
