New York Times Reporters Applaud Far-Left Violence

New York Times Reporters Applaud Far-Left Violence, by John Hinderaker.

New York Times reporters Thomas Fuller, Alan Feuer and Serge Kovaleski are responsible for this admiring profile of the far-left Brownshirts called antifa: “‘Antifa’ members are ready to literally fight right-wingers.” …

Is antifa violent? Well, that depends on what the meaning of “violent” is:

“You need violence in order to protect nonviolence,” she said. “That’s what’s very obviously necessary right now.” …

“When you look at this grave and dangerous threat — and the violence it has already caused — is it more dangerous to do nothing and tolerate it or should we confront it?” Sabaté said. “Their existence itself is violent … so I don’t think using force or violence to oppose them is unethical.”

The mere existence of supporters of President Trump is violent, so it is OK to attack them with baseball bats. The Times reporters show no sign of disagreeing with this “reasoning.” …

Here is a photo of antifa responding to a violent window in Washington, D.C. during President Trump’s inauguration:

… Funny how the heroes of antifa don’t like to be photographed. Why do you suppose that is? …

Antifa rioters always bring bats and clubs, just in case they encounter anyone violent:

… Antifa is nothing more or less than a fascist organization. Hitler’s Brownshirts had nothing on them. I thought their childish trick of naming themselves the opposite of what they really are wouldn’t fool anyone, but apparently it has fooled the New York Times. Or maybe the Times is just on their side.

Glenn Reynolds:

The press is happy to have people hurt, so long as it’s the right people. Remember this when they start their “have you no decency?” routine.
