Nicole Wallace, of MSNBC, actually stated while on air that Antifa members are “good people” and on “the side of angels.” Uhhhh….
This in response to a recent statement by President Trump who called out “both sides” in the aftermath of the Charlottesville protests.
“I think, especially in light of the advent of Antifa, if you look at what’s going on there, you have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also, and essentially that’s what I said,” Trump said on Thursday.
“Because of what’s happened since [Charlottesville] with Antifa, when you look at really what’s happened since Charlottesville, a lot of people are saying, and people have actually written, ‘Gee, Trump may have a point.’ I said there’s some very bad people on the other side also,” he continued.
“There were really bad guys on the side of the KKK, and then there were good people opposing the KKK,” she said. “One of the people on the side of angels lost her life.”
The “side of angels” attacked peaceful demonstrators and law enforcement in Portland, Oregon just last weekend, which resulted in the injury of two police officers.
What freaking world is she living in? Seriously? Sure, we all condemn white nationalists but the actions of Antifa speak for themselves. These people aren’t just some militant wing of the Liberal left, they are totally and absolutely alt-left. Heck, they may even be beyond the alt-left. These people actually hate America and everything it stands for. They want Anarchy and they make no attempts at hiding that fact in the least.
It gathered more than 100,000 signatures in three days, and therefore under policy set by the Obama administration would have received an official review and response from the White House; at over 300,000 signatures, by late August it was the third most-signed submission posted. However, the precedent set by the Obama administration of issuing formal responses to petitions which exceed the 100,000 signature threshold has not been continued by the Trump administration, which has not responded to any petitions on the site.
The originator of the Antifa petition, who goes by the pseudonym Microchip, remarked to Politico that getting conservatives to share and discuss the petition was the entire point, rather than prompting any concrete action by the government.
