Not long after dozens of black-hooded protesters were filmed pummeling people on his city’s streets, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin made clear his disgust for the self-stylized vigilantes.
“Antifa,” he said, is no different than a street gang, and police should start treating protesters in the anti-fascist movement accordingly.
What gets me is that in California if you even threaten somebody with an ass whipping you can be charged with ‘making terrorist threats’. Seriously – it’s happened. Yet antifa can make these threats and then do their damnedest to carry them out and California lawmakers are wringing their hands on how to classify the organization.
