The undercover journalist described Antifa as “structured, almost like a company or like a business.”
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas dropped a video an undercover journalist made when they infiltrated Rose City Antifa (RCA) in Oregon.
(I’d say it’s funny, but considering what these people do, I won’t. But someone should inform them if they are truly anti-fascist, they wouldn’t carry a USSR or China flag with them.)
Quotes in my post come from the video:
Caroline Victorin founded the Rose City Antifa along with her Swedish husband, who is a dual citizen. The journalist said there is a lot of communication between the European and American Antifa groups.
He described RCA as “structured, almost like a company or like a business.” This is why he feels “like there is some type of outside funding influence or resources being used.”
The journalist described the process to become a member. Antifa contacted him through Proton Mail. After a few emails they set him up with an interview in Portland, OR. He had to wear certain clothes and have a specific water bottle in a Starbucks. Someone came to identify him and took him to another place to meet with other members.
Antifa has its meetings in places like bookstores before they open. Everyone has to put their phones in the bathroom as a security precaution.
The bathroom is far from the main room, “but also has a fan that muffled any sound from the room” where the members meet.
The journalist brought up Black Bloc, which may not be a term many people have heard.
Black Bloc is what he is doing in the video. It is “a tactic in which individuals conceal their identity” so no one can identify them. It’s almost like a uniform.
The undercover journalist caught members encouraging others to practice eye-gouging since “it takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes.”
Other remarks from members:
- “Don’t be that f***ingg guy with the goddamn spike brass knuckles getting photos taking of you. Police are going to be like ‘perfect we can prosecute these f***ers look how violent they are’ and not that we aren’t but we need to f***ingg hide that s**t.”
- “The whole goal of this, right, is to get out there and do dangerous things as safely as possible.”
- “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.”
Founder James O’Keefe said his organization “does not condone any violence whatsoever.” He also finds it sad that Antifa has hijacked “#blacklivesmatter protests in cities across the country, attacking the police and engaging in violence.”DONATE
