Antifa thugs and other anti-Kavanaugh activists harassed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his wife Heidi at a restaurant in Washington, D.C. on Monday night, chasing them out of the establishment. They surrounding their table, chanting at them, cult-like, saying “We believe survivors,” flipping him off and screaming in his face until he was forced to leave the restaurant.
And then the group behind it, Smash Racism, then threatened Cruz, President Donald Trump, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and other “right-wing scum” saying, “You are not safe. We will find you.”
While Twitter rushed to lock out James Woods from posting because he posted a funny meme, the Smash Racism account has not been suspended or banned,
And now they’re threatening the Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff who brought the charges against the Antifa thugs after Antifa rioted in D.C., smashed a lot of business and set things on fire during the inauguration.
Are they serious about the use of violence?
Well, let’s see what Mike Isaacson, one of the founders of Smash Racism, has to say, Mike Isaacson, a former college teacher at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
From The Hill:
While both experts on the movement and activists within it emphasize that not everyone who participates in anti-fascist activism engages in violence, they say the use of force is intrinsic to their political philosophy.
“The justification [of the use of violence] is that Nazi ideology at its very core is founded on violence and on wielding power by any means,” said Mike Isaacson, one of the founders of Smash Racism D.C., an antifa organization in Washington.
Isaacson is unequivocal in his defense of violence as a legitimate tool to combat the creeping threat of what he deems authoritarianism.
“There is the question of whether these people should feel safe organizing as Nazis in public, and I don’t think they should,” said Isaacson.
“I don’t think anyone should think that someone who is intent on politically organizing for the sake of creating a state-sponsored genocide — I don’t think is something that we should protect,” he said.
In other words, they think their violence is justified because ‘Nazis’ are violent. But to them, people like Cruz, Trump, Kavanaugh and Assistant U.S. Attorney are all ‘Nazis’ or ‘fascists’ who must be shut up. Police are ‘Nazis’ too as is the capitalist government as well.
In 2016, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI began warning state and local officials about Antifa noting that they had become more confrontational and were engaging in “domestic terrorist violence.”
Far Left Watch reminds us that Isaacson was the former John Jay professor who tweeted about teaching “future dead cops” and equates “anti-communism” with fascism.
You may recall Isaacson from an interview he did with Tucker Carlson.
