Intercept: White House Force to Retract Fake Antifa Claims

THE WHITE HOUSE engaged in an extraordinary act of rumor-mongering on Wednesday, releasing a compilation of viral video clips posted on social media recently by people who believed, wrongly, that the piles of bricks they came across had been planted there by anti-fascist activists, known as Antifa, to inspire violence at protests.

“Antifa and professional anarchists are invading our communities, staging bricks and weapons to instigate violence,” the White House caption for the video claimed. “These are acts of domestic terror.”

Within minutes, journalists discovered that most of the clips included in the video posted online by the White House had already been investigated and debunked. A short time later, without explanation or apology, the White House deleted the video from its official Twitter and Facebook feeds — but only after it had been viewed more than a million times.

Although the White House tried to hide the video once it became clear just how riddled with errors it was, The Intercept saved a copy before it disappeared.

The video is worth examining in detail, since it shows just how unconcerned with the truth people in the White House are, as they conduct a frantic search for evidence to support the president’s baseless claim that the protests over racial injustice and police impunity have been hijacked by phantom “professional protesters.”

  1. Yes. Very similar to the events in Ukraine. Maidan. There, young nationalist girls poured gasoline into bottles and prepared Molotov cocktails. And young guys with hammers crushed paving stones and tiles, so that the pieces were convenient to throw. Everything for the front, everything for victory. How it all ended, we know.
