The Establishment And Antifa Go Hand In Hand

Antifa violence broke out once again in Berkeley, California, this weekend.

On Sunday, a small number of supporters of President Trump decided to gather in the left-wing college town following the cancellation of two similar demonstrations in the area the day before. The reason for the cancellations was due to the large number of violent threats the pro-Trump organizers received.

The day Trump supporters actually showed up in the Bay Area gave leftists the chance to make good on their threats.

The scenes on the ground in Berkeley showed black-masked, red flag-waving thugs taking over the city and assaulting anyone they deemed to be a Nazi. It was a stark contrast to the heroic image Antifa has earned from journalists and politicians in the weeks since the violence in Charlottesville.

There were no clear Nazis in Berkeley, just your average Trump supporters. Yet that didnít save them from a beating at the hands of Antifa.

Strangely enough, Antifa had drawn praise from the most unlikely of sources within the Trump administration just a few days before they rioted against free assembly in Berkeley.

In a interview with the Financial Times, Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive and current White House economic adviser, publicly rebuked his boss Donald Trumpís response to the Charlottesville violence that both sides were at fault. He also praised Antifa as a force for good.

ďCitizens standing up for equality and freedom can never be equated with white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK,Ē the top Trump adviser asserted.

There are many odd things about a Trump-aligned Goldman Sachs figurehead praising anti-capitalist rioters. Itís pretty strange to praise leftists who dedicate their lives to suppressing free speech and free assembly as standing up for freedom.

Antifa are pretty open about not liking these freedoms, as evidenced by their actions in Berkeley. So itís hard to say theyíre fighting for liberty ó especially when they continually attack average Americans who support the president you work for.

Whatís even more bizarre is for a Wall Street power player to stand with guys who fantasize about murdering bankers. Cohn is effectively defending people who see him as an evil monster who deserves violence as much as Nazis do.

The leftsts wish to tear down the whole financial system that Cohn has worked his whole life upholding, so why is he praising them?

The answer is that he doesnít see Antifa as a threat at all. Wall Street folks donít have to worry about the black-masked bloc assaulting them or burning down their offices. If they did, the federal government would ruthlessly pursue them as domestic terrorists.

But Cohn only sees them as attacking and harming marginal groups that have hardly any cultural capital. It doesnít matter if those folks get hurt just expressing their constitutional rights, especially if those attacked might disrupt business.

Besides, how can you be a member of polite society and think even detestable Nazis deserve protection from violence?

But Antifa doesnít just attack right-wing extremists. They also go after your average Trump supporters and conservatives.

However, that still might not be a problem for Cohn and other elites.

Never heard of the dirtbags until Trump won. I believe the left is behind this and are paying the protestors bussing them in to protest etc. I'd bet Soros, Obummer, Killary and Bernie are backing these thugs, they're a bunch of wusses. They cover their faces and gang up and sucker punch people. Don't have the guts to take on others face to face. Since theynlike to fight why not round them all up and send them to Afghanistan or somewhere else in the Middle East. I'd bet they'd cry like a baby or like poor old Davycrockett.
