“We have a number of investigators at the department that are working with DOJ and working with FBI. We know that they have opened up a number of cases specifically targeting some of the leaders of Antifa and other organizations that are involved,” acting Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf told Fox News.
German AfD foreign policy speaker Petr Bystron urged President Trump to “to examine the international Antifa terror network all the way up to the highest levels in press and government, and issue travel bans and international arrest warrants where necessary and appropriate.”
In Europe, Antifa is frequently supported by taxpayer funding and works openly with political secret police, law enforcement and media to suppress conservative voices and parties. Speaking in the German Parliament March 12, Green Party delegate Renate Künast acknowledged state funding for Antifa, complaining the funding is too spotty: “I’m sick of having to fight for money for NGOs and Antifa groups, merely relying on temporary contracts”. A 2018 report by the Bundestag research service also documented federal funding is going from the Family Ministry to Antifa groups as part of the “anti-radicalization” program “Living Democracy!” A query by Bystron recently revealed that 9 million Euros German taxpayer funding went to left-wing Open Society related NGOs in 2019.
The enemy have us surrounded. Good! Now we know where to find the bastards! -various
