It’s Not A Protest, It’s Not A Riot, It’s A Revolution (Conclusion)

Antifa Muslim Connection
In the first five articles of our series “It’s Not A Protest, It’s Not A Riot, It’s A Revolution” we’ve made the case that the street violence occurring in the wake of George Floyd’s death is part of a larger Leftist plan to undermine and eventually dissolve our constitutional republic. Making the United States “ungovernable” by creating chaos during the 2020 presidential election cycle is a key part of their strategy.

We’ve also identified the Communist roots of this movement. And through the work of Diana West, Stephen Coughlin, Rich Higgins, James Simpson, Clare Lopez, the Daily Caller’s Andrew Kerr, Angelo Codevilla, J. Christian Adams, Andy Ngo, Project Veritas and the other researchers, reporters and thinkers we’ve quoted, demonstrated that the actors behind this violence are part of a well-funded movement powered by interlocking or united front organizations that all share the goal of dismantling our constitutional republic and establishing a socialist oligarchy in its place.

There remain just a few items to tie-up to bring the series to a conclusion, chief among them being why Minneapolis?

In “Requiem for Minnesota – When Does a State Become a Counterstate?” Stephen Coughlin of Unconstrained Analytics documented the state’s evolution into an anti-American counterstate and a center for the neo-Marxist Left and the Islamic Movement’s plans to use the 2020 election cycle to escalate the delegitimization of America, the Constitution, and the electoral process.

As Mr. Coughlin documented:

In January 2018, the Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison, endorsed both Antifa and their tactics of intimidation and violence.

On May 4, 2020, CAIR announced the release of a video on YouTube in which Ellison endorsed and fundraised for CAIR. In the video, he introduced himself as the Attorney General and hailed CAIR as a civil rights (human rights) leader while invoking “War on Racism” memes:

“CAIR is an organization that for many years now has stood for the civil rights of Muslims and enhances the law and society.”

“We have seen upticks in Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hate. Asian Americans have been the focal point of hatred as the president talks about a Chinese virus.”

Notice the information/political warfare themes Ellison advances; hate speech narratives that integrate the Left’s “hate speech” with the Islamic Movement’s “Islamophobia” memes.

The killing of Mr. Floyd was a tragedy, observed Mr. Coughlin, but the spring-loaded narratives that followed were pre-packaged and are aimed at delegitimizing law enforcement in advance of a period of violence.

Looking at this information in its entirety from months before the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, an action like this was foreseeable, was foreseen, and is, as is already occurring, designed to go national.

Stephen Coughlin and I are not the only ones to conclude the street violence was pre-programed into the 2020 election cycle. Bill Gertz, reporting for the Washington Times wrote that activists of the far-left Antifa movement began planning to foment a nationwide anti-government insurgency as early as November 2019 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.

Mr. Gertz reported that while law enforcement officials would not speak on the record about Antifa’s plans as the election season heats up, longtime analysts of the group say such a move would be entirely in character.

“Antifa’s actions represent a hard break with the long tradition of a peaceful political process in the United States,” said former National Security Council staff member Rich Higgins. “Their Marxist ideology seeks not only to influence elections in the short term but to destroy the use of elections as the determining factor in political legitimacy.”

Added Joe Myers, a former Defense Intelligence Agency official and counterinsurgency expert, “President Trump’s election and revitalization of America are a threat to Antifa’s nihilist goals. They are fomenting this violence to create havoc, despair and to target the Trump campaign for defeat in 2020.”. . . . . Mr. Myers argued that Antifa clearly meets the criteria for being labeled a terrorist and insurgent movement. “It is employing organized violence for political ends: destruction of the constitutional order,” he said. (You can read the entire article through this link to Unconstrained Analytics.)

Attorney General William Barr has also implied as much, while stating that foreign interests and “extremist agitators” tied to the Antifa movement have tried to exploit the nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd.

And there is open source evidence to back-up Barr’s conclusions; back in 2018, NBC and VOX reported on secret documents obtained by a Russian opposition group. Anti-American Russian hackers have discussed plans to stir up racial resentment in the United States in hopes of tearing American society apart. The operatives are apparently associates of Yevgeny Prigozhin, the man who set up a troll farm and was indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller for his role in 2016 meddling.

But the apparent Russian 2020 election interference plot, discussed as far back as 2018, goes much further than spending a hundred thousand dollars on Facebook ads and trolling people on Twitter. The documents reportedly contain shocking proposals such as sending black Americans to Africa “for combat prep and training in sabotage,” as well as targeting people who have previously been incarcerated and people “who have experience in organized crime groups ... for participation in civil disobedience actions.”

One final point to be examined: Are these disparate groups really allied and to what extent do these extremist groups – Antifa, Black Lives Matter and the Islamic Movement – share operational command and control?

The use of anti-Western Muslims by Communists goes back at least to the 1920s when the nascent Soviet Union convened the Congress of the Peoples of the East, a multinational conference hosted in September 1920 by the Communist International in Baku, Azerbaijan. While the conference had little immediate political effect it marked Communist recognition that Muslims and Communists could and should work together to attack the Judeo-Christian West under the guise of anti-colonial insurgencies.

Today, we see the fruit of that 100-year old cooperation in the tweets of Minnesota’s Muslim Attorney General Keith Ellison holding the Antifa handbook and expressing his support for the Communist organization. Our friend James Simpson also documented this anti-American alliance at book length in “The Red-Green Axis 2.0: An Existential Threat to America and the World” and in other articles cited in this series.

To conclude with graphic evidence of their cooperation in the current street violence, we need look no further than the must-watch Project Veritas video of their infiltration of one of the most violent Antifa cells – Rose City Antifa of Portland, Oregon.

As the undercover journalist goes through the Antifa membership prospecting process and training, explaining their sophisticated professional security tradecraft, tactics and training in improvised weapons and street violence he passes through a series of lectures at Portland’s “In Other Words” bookstore, hanging on the wall outside the lecture room is the Council of American – Islamic Relations poster telling Muslims and other anti-American mass line supporters to “Build a Wall of Resistance Don’t Talk to the FBI,” which you can see in the screen shot of the Project Veritas video illustrating this article.
