Rutgers historian runs to rioters’ defense: ‘Antifa isn’t the problem’
Mark Bray, a historian of human rights, terrorism, and political radicalism in modern Europe at Rutgers University in New Jersey, claims President Donald Trump’s labeling of Antifa as a terrorist organization is a cover-up for police violence.
In a Washington Post op-ed, titled, “Antifa isn’t the problem, Trump’s bluster is a distraction from police violence,” Bray explains that Trump is trying “to break the connection between…anti-racist and black activism.” Campus Reform has previously reported on Bray for his authorship of the book Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook and his promise to donate half of the proceeds of his book sales to the far-left group. Bray appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press in 2017, where he seemed to advocate violence.
Bray’s employer at the time, Dartmouth College, then released a statement, saying, “Recent statements made by Lecturer in History Mark Bray supporting violent protest do not represent the views of Dartmouth… the endorsement of violence in any form is contrary to Dartmouth values.”
Trump and other conservatives have stated that the riots in recent days are due to the tactics of groups such as Antifa, supported by Bray. After cities were destroyed, Trump announced that “the United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.”
Following that statement, Bray once again came to Antifa’s defense, claiming that these “reckless accusations lack evidence” and that they are “delegitimizing militant protest and deflecting attention away from the white supremacy and police brutality.”
