Instead of welcoming a duly elected, sitting President to their town, the hard left including city officials have done everything in their power to thwart President Trump’s rally in Minneapolis. Last week the grouping of Antifa organizations known as “It’s Going Down” received attention in the non-establishment media for their plans to “converge” upon President Trump’s rally at the Target Center in Minneapolis in what they referred to as an “Anti-Capitalist Bloc.”
Joining the Facebook invitation titled “Dump Trump! Trump Not Welcome in Minneapolis!” along with Antifa-aligned organizations such as “Native Lives Matter,” “Queer Revolutionary Workers Syndicate” and “No Cages Minnesota” was, of course, the Minneapolis chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
In the wake of the very limited publicity, Antifa allies at Unicorn Riot whined that the attention would result in violence against antifa, which is laughable by any standard. Antifa is known for their violent behavior. Just this week, the Gateway Pundit reported that Antifa’s David Campbell received 18 months in prison after he “nearly murdered” a Trump supporter.
The tactic (also known as the Luke O’Brien Effect) is old and tired: Provoke until you get a response, and when there is a response, claim to be a victim.
There are numerous examples of this, but one that comes to mind was described by Scott Foval, who worked for Senator Jan Schakowsky’s husband Robert Creamer, a democrat operative who was a guest of the Obama White House on numerous occasions and directly worked for Hillary Clinton. During the 2016 campaign, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas caught Foval explaining the tactic they referred to as “Bird-Dogging” at Trump rallies.
It is difficult even by mainstream media standards to imagine that they can spin Antifa to be victims. According to their 2016 launch video, “Its Going Down” is “…creating a material force which can seize territory, defeat our enemies and the apparatuses of control and create different ways of being.” Their promotional video shows them acting violently, damaging property and assaulting police officers.
As noted by Unicorn Riot, Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey wrote in a September 26 statement:
“…Since taking office President Trump’s actions have been reprehensible and his rhetoric has made it clear that he does not value the perspectives or rights of Minneapolis’ diverse communities.
Additionally, Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender denounced the President, saying in part that “…hate is not welcome in our community but we cannot stop the visit… I know this event will cause stress and fear – the city will do all we can, and ask for support, in keeping everyone safe.”
It is not a stretch to consider that President Trump’s rallies, which are astonishingly successful, would be considered as a direct threat to the left. Expect leftist violence to continue at these rallies unless there are consequences for Antifa and their allies. In leftist cities, consequences are unlikely.
