CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin tried to claim that Antifa is a black organization and that President Trump is against Antifa because they are black. Of course, the truth is that Republicans are against them because, ironically, they are fascists. We also don’t like violence to shut down other points of view.
“Let’s be clear also about what’s going on here. The theme here is, ‘I’m Donald Trump and I’ll protect you from the scary black people.’ Antifa is widely perceived as an African-American organization, and this is just part of the same story of LeBron James and Don Lemon and Maxine Waters and the NFL players and the UCLA basketball players,” said Toobin.
“This is about black versus white. This is about Donald Trump’s appeal to racism and it just happens all the time. And we never say it. We don’t say it enough for what it is, but that’s what’s going on here. Let’s not forget Donald Trump became a politician by making up a racist lie about the first African-American President of the United States,” said Toobin.
In reality, Antifa is NOT percieved as a African-American organization. In fact it is clear they are mostly liberal white college students who have been fed too much propaganda.
“HOLY SH*T. @CNN is now LYING on Black Americans accusing US of committing the violent atrocities that ANTIFA commits across the nation. ANTIFA is a notoriously ALL-WHITE gang, and blaming BLACKS is absolutely DISGRACEFUL @JeffreyToobin,” tweeted Conservative commentator Candace Owens.
HOLY SHIT. @CNN is now LYING on Black Americans accusing US of committing the violent atrocities that ANTIFA commits across the nation.
