Project Veritas Video: Antifa Instructors Teach Violence
Written by R. Cort Kirkwood
Two undercover video reports from Project Veritas reveal the “violent nature” of Antifa, the armed and dangerous communist group that Attorney General William Barr has accused of “domestic terrorism.”
Though PV recorded two meetings at which “instructors” described the violence and mayhem that members should inflict upon opponents, Antifa’s violent terror tactics are well known and have ended in criminal charges in the past.
That said, the videos provide a glimpse into what those who oppose Antifa, or even innocent bystanders, can expect from the goons.
The first video features PV’s undercover reporter, disguised like an Antifa legbreaker ready for battle in the streets, explaining what he saw when he infiltrated the group.
“They do not hesitate to either push back or incite some kind of violence,” the undercover reporter said. “In our classes and in our meetings, before we do any sort of demonstration or Black Bloc, we talk about weapons detail and what we carry and what we should have.”
Here is some advice from an “instructor” at the Rose City Antifa group in Oregon:
• “Practice things like an eye gouge, it takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes.”
• “Police are going to be Like: ‘Perfect, we can prosecute these [Antifa] f**kers, look how violent they are.’ And not that we aren’t, but we need to f**king hide that sh*t.”
• “Consider like, destroying your enemy. Not like delivering a really awesome right hand, right eye, left eye blow, you know. It’s not boxing, It’s not kickboxing. It’s like destroying your enemy.”
PV also recorded another Antifa instructor explain how to cripple an opponent in the street:
If you get a good liver or kidney shot, it’s pretty much crippling them. They’re going to be doubled over and in a lot of pain. If you break one of the floating ribs, which are small and right down here. Those are also very painful, it’s hard to move after that, to catch a breath. So, one good body shot could potentially give you all the time in the world to run away while they’re doubled over in pain, or really put a beating on them after that if you really want to make it personal.
If that doesn’t work he said, “the nose, the eyes, poke the eyes.”
Marines, Trump Supporter Attacked, Carlson Harassed
Yet no one familiar with Antifa will be surprised at the instructors’ advice.
In January last year, cops arrested a top Antifa thug for his role in an attack on three U.S. Marines in Philadelphia. That individual, Jose Alcoff, led a double life; respectable left-wing activist and Democrat camp follower by day; murderous thug by night and online.
Alcoff’s day job was fighting against predatory payday loans and hobnobbing with top Democrat leaders such Senator Dianne Feinstein of California and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin.
But Alcoff’s Antifa activities, done under aliases, were something else altogether.
On Twitter, Alcoff explained that “the left wins nothing w/ nonviolence,” and that his followers must learn how to deliver “a good neck punch.” He also expressed hope that President Trump would suffer a “very public death at the hands of the pitchfork wielding exploited, a public execution that befits Trump’s stature.”
Later last year, the thugs brutally attacked a journalist covering a protest and doxxed Fox talker Tucker Carlson, White House aide Stephen Miller, and two conservatives. In late 2018, Antifa thugs showed up at Carlson’s home to terrorize his wife and warned the conservative television host that “we know where you sleep at night.” Another group affiliated with Antifa threatened Carlson as well.
Antifa has repeatedly attacked police, and three years ago, a masked Antifa goon walked away from four felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon after he split open a man’s head and attacked others at a pro-Trump free-speech rally in Berkeley.
But Attorney General Barr has had enough. In a prepared statement released on May 31, Barr warned Antifa and its terror affiliates that federal law enforcement would crack down.
“Federal law enforcement actions will be directed at apprehending and charging the violent radical agitators who have hijacked peaceful protest and are engaged in violations of federal law,” he said. “The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”
The FBI designated Antifa’s activities as “domestic terror” in 2016.
