The tired Trump-is-a-white-supremacist narrative is being dusted off once again as a justification for violence. Apparently, irony is lost on these morons.
Leftist-anarchist website Its Going Down.org provides “a report from Pittsburgh anarchists” describing their “full disruption and confrontation” of attendees of a Donald Trump rally held last week in the Pennsylvania town of Oakland.
Their message for Trump supporters is stark, clear and disturbing; you are a target of violence.
Calling the Trump campaign one “direct response to the Black Lives Matter movement, Barack Obama’s presidency, and what they see as an existential threat to white supremacy” the article states in no uncertain terms that: “Support of Donald Trump and by extension these aims is enough to justify oneself as a target of anti-racist violence.”
The Pittsburgh anarchists explain who they are and what their plan was to disrupt a townhall and rally held with Trump and Fox News host Sean Hannity:
“Actions against Trump’s Oakland event were called for by various student activist groups on the University of Pittsburgh campus as well as by WHAT’S UP?!, a local anti-racism group. ANSWER, a front group for the Pittsburgh chapter of Party for Socialism and Liberation, issued a call for a rally and march to Trump’s main campaign event in downtown.
Anarchists and autonomous anti-fascists knew from the very beginning that our goal was full disruption and confrontation with both Trump and his supporters. We felt that established organizations such as WHAT’S UP?! and ANSWER would both work to disrupt this goal in favor of their own visions of what a successful anti-racist action should look like. We chose to organize our own contingent so as to maximize our autonomy and control of our actions and desires.”
Video of the attacks on Trump supporters shows that the groups succeeded in achieving their goals.
Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV called the clashes “almost riot like.”
Fighting perceived bigotry with real bigotry and violence, how intelligent. If these college students think that tearing down white men is a justifiable way to fight racism, it’s a wonder we try to educate them at all.
