"Activists Seek Peace Through Violence": CNN Quickly Scrubs Title Of Antifa Puff Piece

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

How did we reach a point in our society, where groups like Antifa think nothing of wreaking havoc on the streets on a regular basis?

These people routinely beat those they disagree with, cause property damage, and shut down dissent without a single iota of shame. You have to ask yourself, how did this group and others like it, get so bold as to think that they can flippantly disregard the law and openly riot in the streets?

The answer is that the media is responsible for this mess. It’s the media that has repeatedly ignored, apologized for, and even celebrated their actions. How else would these thugs have come to the conclusion that what they’re doing is okay? They’re constantly being lionized by our morally bankrupt media.

CNN made that perfectly clear last week.

They published a piece that was highly sympathetic to Antifa titled “Unmasking the Leftist Antifa Movement: Activists Seek Peace Through Violence.”

This past weekend CNN drew more criticism for its left-wing bias after posting a profile on the violent left-wing group “Antifa,” that rather generously described the communist group as “seeking peace through violence.” Despite the obvious contradiction in terms, at least the headline noted the group’s violent motives (albeit in a really stupid way.) But that phrase was scrubbed just hours later by CNN in an apparent move to not offend members of the radical-left group.

 

The original article appeared online Friday afternoon, with the headline: “Unmasking the Leftist Antifa Movement: Activists Seek Peace Through Violence.” That one mention of violence in the headline was the only real objective criticism CNN’s Sara Ganim and Chris Welch had to offer throughout their lengthy piece, interviewing several self-identified Antifa activists…

 

…If this was a radical, violent right-wing group, it’s a given that CNN would have plenty of left-wing groups on hand to denounce their ideologies and behavior. When the group’s violent methods were finally first brought up in the article, CNN justifies the violence as a means to an end, because, the antifa members say, they’re committing violence to “eradicate hatred.” Well, if you put it that way, it all makes sense!

And if you can believe it, CNN apparently didn’t scrub the title because of public outcry.

According to an update posted at the bottom of the article, This story has been updated to clarify that counterprotesters say they are not to blame for violence at the Charlottesville protest.” Since the title is the only change CNN made, it appears that they were pressured by Antifa to change the title. I think the real reason Antifa wanted to change the title, is because they don’t like their name being synonymous with a phrase that reeks of “ends justify the means” logic, even though that’s exactly what they’re all about.

So in short, CNN briefly exposed Antifa for what they really are, and Antifa quickly tried to convince them to change their article. And they obliged! That title was the only part of the article that was really critical of this group, and they tried to memory-hole it almost immediately.

This is how the media keeps groups like Antifa alive and helps them grow. They constantly excuse and sugarcoat their behavior, and refuse to tell the public about what their true motives are. They can’t bring themselves to call them what they are.

And what they are is the kind of people who think that peace can be achieved through violence. Or as an Antifa member claimed in the article, they sometimes try to eradicate “hatred” through violence. In reality, violence never eradicates hatred or brings about peace, unless it eradicates every enemy. Just pray that you don’t say or think anything that may be arbitrarily deemed hateful by these ignorant, street fighting teenagers.

" This is how the media keeps groups like Antifa alive and helps them grow. They constantly excuse and sugarcoat their behavior, and refuse to tell the public about what their true motives are. "What is is about Antifa's own self description as "Anarcho-Communists" that CNN does not understand?Scores: Hitler: 2-6 million dead, Communism: 100-120 million.OR maybe they DO understand it! - Even more frightening...

They have jobs. They work for Soros. At the moment not so well paid since credit is not so easily available.Why are these idiots call ANTIFA? They worked with the media to create a label which is a delusion. By labeling them as such it appears they are against some sort of evil and by default creates an illusion they are for something good.They should be rightfully called Bolsheviks. They are working for the same people who funded Trotsky, Lenin and Stalin

It can be reversed for a number of them, it is just that you would need to risk jail time for every single one.  Say something incredibly racist in front of one, then throw a haymaker to the face, and then when they are coherent again, ask them which hurt more, the words, or the fist.  Most of them are completely clueless when it comes to violence, which is why they equate "hate speech" with violence.

lol...they've got the editors of CNN on speed dial...LMAO!!!"Censor what you just published immediately or face the consequences!"So there you have it, Antifa's support for the destruction of art, literature, speech & press, all in one spiked story line.And again, you can always count on the left to reveal its real motivations and intentions, just give them enough rope ;-)

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.  CNN needs to lose its news-accredidation, and, IN-FACT, needs to have its FCC license pulled, for PROMOTING SEDITION AND TREASON AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I am 100% mother-fucking SERIOUS. Lindsey

Mr. Poet, you are, of course, writing of (((wolfgang blitzer))), the LITERAL "former"-AiPAC spokesman, and LITERAL (((sayan))), operating against The United States of America, FOR the "state"-of-israHell. Most people have no idea of the TRUTH about that literal sayan, or more appropriately, (((mossad))) operative, and it is incumbent upon ALL OF US whom know the truth, to ENSURE THAT WE MENTION THIS FACT, WHENEVER, AND WHEREVER, WE ARE ABLE, WHEN TALKING ABOUT CNN. Seriously, Folks, please do that, and help to TRULY awaken-the-masses to the truth of what is being done against our nations of "The West", and (((who))) is fucking orchestrating this shit. Thank you, in-advance. Lindsey NB:  That, ESPECIALLY, goes for those of you whom call-in to radio-programs.  It takes just a few seconds to mention the pedigree of (((wolfgang blitzer))), and it is VERY easy for people to extrapolate-out what the fact means, as far as (((the media))) is concerned.

Watch as a panelist, defending President Trump, and his speech in Phoenix, truly destroys both Don "The" Lemon, and CNN, AT-LARGE, on its own network:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g69OJ3w8mfU&t=17s It was one of the best moments, EVER, on teLIEvision, and really exposed CNN for what it is--a network that has as its mission-statement, at-this-point, ONLY INTERESTED IN DOING LITERALLY ALL THAT IT CAN, AND I MEAN EVERY THING, TO DEFAME, LIBEL, SLANDER, AND RIDICULE, THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, REGARDLESS OF THE CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR NATION, AT-LARGE. That, Folks, is why I call this PRECISELY what it is--literal sedition, and LITERAL treason.  Those mother-fuckers KNOWINGLY pushed the LIE/HOAX/FRAUD of (((muh...Russia))) for MONTHS-UPON-MONTHS-UPON-MONTHS, until, LITERALLY, AGAIN, just two weeks, ago, when it was-all-but-proven that it was an absolute FRAUD/HOAX/LIE, cooked-up by (((robbie mook))) and podesta-the-molesta, on November 9, 2016, as a half-assed and half-hearted "explanation" for why The Creature was soundly-defeated, all-the-while COMPLETELY PRETENDING THAT LEAKER SETH RICH, MURDERED FOR HIS HEROISM AND INTELLECTUAL-HONESTY, WAS NOT THE LEAKER OF THAT MATERIAL.  Well, Genius Julian Assange has presented the prima-facie evidence of the truth of how WikiLeaks obtained the e-mails, AND TESTIFIED TO REP. DANA ROHRBACHER, ONE WEEK AGO, NOW, SO THE-CAT-IS-OUT-OF-THE-BAG... Yeah...ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Lindsey

Good luck pal,The Collier brothers fought for 22 years with paper and video tape evidence of election fraud on a vast scale.  First noted in 1970, the brothers took evidence to the FBI, the Justice Dept., the Superior Court, and their case seems to connect to the unusual pushing aside of Robert Bork in favour of Antonin Scalia for appointment to the Supreme Court.The Collier brothers were unsuccessful in all their suits, but they wrote a book "Votescam: The Stealing of America".  The book has been removed from the Library of Congess.That is the level of corruption that we are up against.
