Alt-Left Melts Down Over "Unmasking Antifa" Act

It seems the new "Unmasking Antifa Act" has ruffled a few feathers among the alt-left.

Introduced in the House last month by Rep Dan Donovan (R-NY), H.R. 6054 is a response to a spate of violent attacks provoked by masked members of Antifa, and would punish anyone wearing a mask who "injures, oppresses, threatens or intimidates" a person "in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege" with a fine and up to 15 years in prison.

The law is effectively a modern take on anti-mask laws dating back to the mid-20th century in order to stop the violent activities of the Ku Klux Klan - and the left is predictably pissed.

New York City anarchist Carmichael Monaco of the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council told Vice on Tuesday: 

"H.R. 6054 takes a pro-fascist stance in its very name, and doubtlessly in its enforcement. In the current political climate, antifascists who speak out against fascism, racism, xenophobia, etc. are routinely harassed, threatened, and attacked by the far right, often supported by the police, who are notably exempted here. Families and friends of antifascists also become targets of far right violence. The wearing of a mask is an act of self-defense often necessary to ensure one's right to free speech." 

Alt-left Twitter denizens were none too pleased either: 

(his pinned tweet) 

Of course, some on the alt-left are way ahead of the Unmask Antifa Act..

That doesn't exactly obscure one's identity while "punching a Nazi" - while footage of a Proud Boy knocking out a preppy kid in a polo shirt would instantly go viral. We can only imagine.

Time to locate and engage Antifa with extreme prejudice. They are officially a domestic terrorist organization by the US Dept of Homeland Security.

If you read the text of this proposed law, and you think it's anything other than a severe threat to liberty, you deserve to hang. It has nothing to do specifically with antifa. It even says "whether or not while wearing a mask" and it criminalizes behavior undertaken "under color of law". It's just another terror statute that will be used by the ruling state power, at any given time, to use against the particular citizens they don't like.

We need to send in the Plinkertons to infiltrate Antifa and start busting skulls. Sure they feel tough in a black hoodie know, but when the right’s patience runs out they’ll get a heaping helping of the revolution they claim to admire.

So this is a law by statists, for statists to avoid enforcing the laws that already exist on the books. It's a given that the leftists methodology is to win in the courts.

If this law passes, (and it probably will), it will be used against patriots one day. Why do you need this law? Can't you arrest people just because they are dressed as armed robbers, (hiding their faces)? Also, the courts need to stop letting these people off with slaps on the hands. Give them all criminal convictions if they are engaged in felonious behavior. That way the next time they get arrested somewhere else their criminal record will follow them and start stacking up.

Also, look into how these thugs support themselves. Follow the money. You'll find a Steyer or a Soros not far away.

I have no doubt that it will be used in ways that are not expected and on people who do not expect it.

I have to wonder whether in winter if you have a hat and scarf on whether or not they could get you with this?

I also wonder why they need this particular law? I'm not sure that equally viable enforcement activities could not have been accomplished without it.

Unless the law particularly calls out Antifa, and I really doubt that it does, I think it should be opposed.

I feel deeply ashamed when I read the words of someone like (((the Bear Jew))). If this kind of attitude is prevalent among American Jews, I can actually understand where all the Jew hatred is coming from (without condoning generalizations or hatred of any group).

It is obvious that many among the Jewish community in America have lost their way. I can attribute that to a lack of belonging to a group, as they are no longer Jewish in the religious sense, they have rejected their bond with the state of Israel, and they never really felt at home in America. IMO what they should do is immigrate to Israel. This is where they belong.

'jew' is a fraudulent label that purposely misdirects the person who encounters it to mercurial and chameleonesque meanings. It refers to 'race', but what race nobody is sure of, while simultaneously referring to religion, where the majority of the so called 'jews' are atheist materialists and do not have a religious bone in their body. DNA 'tests' that claim to link a 'jew' to Abraham are absurd on at least 3 fronts: 1) there is no way to even factually verify whether or not 'Abraham' was a fictional character or not, and to whatever extent he was real, there is absolutely no way to verify any of the claims, stories, words attributed to this character, 2) there is no possible way to make any accurate genetic comparison, because for one, even if 'Abraham' was real, there is no way at all to determine where this person was born, or for that matter, who he was, 3) assuming 'Abraham' was born (according to the tale) circa 2500 BC (?), that is 4500 year old DNA - nobody has any samples of that lying around.

It is just one of the annoying things about life on planet earth - we eventually find out there is a LOT of bulls-, a MASSIVE amount of myths, ppl believe it with NO DISPOSITIVE FACTS or CREDIBLE EVIDENCE to support the myths. The 'jew' myth is the biggest whopper of them all because not only are there zero facts to support it, there is a mountain of facts to contradict it.

Who is a 'jew'? Well, who is any of us, right? We are all born somewhere! We have ancestors that come from somewhere! Mine can be physically traced into the 1600s to Ireland and Sweden. I consider myself an American because I was born in the uSa, but I suppose I could honestly say my ancestors came from Ireland. But that doesn't make me 'Irish'.

In other words, that is a completely honest way to represent who I am and where I came from. MOST people are just like that -everyone EXCEPT self labelled 'jews'.

There is a 'jew' called Brother Nathaniel. He noted in a video that he knew of his ancestors as far back as around 1800 or so. OK, not bad. That is believable. For everyone alive today, we can trace back to some physical point of origin 200-500 or so years ago. Beyond that, there really are no records, except in the most exceptional circumstances. Brother Nathaniel noted that (as I recall) some great great grandparent was from Russia.

OK, fine. Brother Nathaniel should then honestly represent himself to the world as an American (he was born here) with Russian ancestry.

Do you know what that makes me and Brother Nathaniel, and every other American born self-labelled 'jew', who can legitimately and factually trace to places like Russia, Poland, Hungary, Spain, Germany, and the Ukraine? It makes us equals!

But the 'jew' listens to their mother (I suppose), and she said to her son he was a 'jew', based on nothing but her say so, when even she has no idea where she really came from, or perhaps they know, but are not honest about it, so the little boy believes it, adopts it, and perpetuates it - the myth.

The 'jew' myth is a powerful one, leveraged by sociopathic luciferians to gain material advantages in this earthly realm, cut off from the ordinary conscience and by every possible means, without the slightest prick of the conscience, employing murders, wars, thefts, lies, mayhem, frauds and so on to get what they want. That isn't just hyperbole. I can cite reliable sources to corroborate the claim.

By now, this cult has a finely tuned network, and anybody to can be determined to be 'genetically' tied in to it, is afforded all the material advantages. But that does not change the fact it is all built on a fraud.

The fraud goes way back, and it is linked to a complete lie that these 'jews' have something to do with the ancient myths, which, as  noted, are dubious by themselves. Nonetheless, the mass of the west population (up until recently) was predominantly Christian, and that religion is inextricably linked to the same old myths, with a 'twist'. Now, with countless millions of Christians, who are devoted to the narrative, convinced at least these mythological ancient ppl were the ppl of 'God', they just assume that ppl who pass themselves off as 'jew' today must be related to them, and on that basis, lie down and let the 'chosen' ones roll all over them, subverting their very existence because they would not want to 'offend' the 'chosen' ones, because, well, that is not the Christian thing to do!

In the meantime, the luciferian jews manipulated compromised politicians into handing over control of the money systems on the west, and they led to pretty much total control of everything else. The sales pitch to the gullible Christian masses was the text in their holy book so the compromised sleazeball leader could sell an agenda that nobody otherwise in their right mind would fall for.

Thus, given that 'jew' is a wholesale fraud, and further, the 'rabbis' teach the worship of lucifer from the juden book the kabballah, the 'spiritual leaders' of 'jew' ppl everywhere, it seems to me that if a person were credible, they would immediately renounce the association.

But they do not, because they get something out of it.

These facts and issues ought to be already known by any of these phonys running around calling themselves 'jews', which is why I have a contempt for all of them across the board, I don't care how 'nice' they are, because they fundamentally lie to the world around them all day long, and the very mention of the term links them to a fraud, which makes them a fraud.

And given that the current modern 'advantage' afforded to the 'jew' was purchased with the torture and suffering of 200,000,000 people all over the world in the last 120 years, all brought on the world in the rabid pursuit of the zionist agenda, only an evil person would cling to the label.

Exactly, there are already laws against violent behavior and rioting. It doesn't matter what your cause is, hitting people is not peaceful assembly. Wearing a mask to a demonstration is a bit of a giveaway that your intentions are not peaceful. 

Technically, this is still a free country. Until you hit somebody that is. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

"It's like they're ashamed of themselves."

If you looked like Lisa Page or the other nasty libturd women like Kathy Griffin or Michelle Wolf, wouldn't you be wearing a mask too ?

Those bitches are hairy butt hole ugly.

Antifa is probably a cia/fbi creation. It's purpose is to act as controlled opposition. This mask act may appear to be directed at Antifa but think bigger. What is a mask? Anything that hides identity like sunglasses & hat, cycle helmet, or whatever hides your identity from face readers. This law has an ulterior motive and it is not good.

Everybody is a fascist to these idiots.

My mailman is a fascist. That dog is a fascist. This dinner sucks, I think the chef is a fascist.

Reminds of the depressed goth/punk/drama fag kids in high school.

Stop trying to use your favorite -ism as an excuse for being a shithead who needs an ass whoopin’!
