FEARS of violence as Antifa calls for Thanksgiving riots
Members of Antifa have taken to social media to call on Americans to “organise your comrades to attack symbols of colonialism, capitalism, gentrification” at Thanksgiving. Antifa is a far-left anti-fascist group who have been at the centre of much violence throughout the country.
Donald Trump tweeted about “Antifa scum” after a Maga Million March descended into violence in Washington on November 14.
Trump wrote: “ANTIFA SCUM ran for the hills today when they tried attacking the people at the Trump Rally, because those people aggressively fought back.
“Antifa waited until tonight, when 99% were gone, to attack innocent #MAGA People. DC Police, get going — do your job and don’t hold back!!!”
On their social media post, Antifa members say they are “tired of seeing white people celebrate the genocide of our ancestors.”
“F**k thanksgiving,” the post reads. “Organize your own direct action.”
