Antifa leaders held a press conference on Monday to complain about the media leading their coverage of Sunday’s violent riots at Berkeley “with the bleeding stuff.”
“It is not always about the violence,” Antifa leader Alex U. Inn said, “and that’s why we’re here asking you as media representation to not focus on that all the time.”
“I don’t have too much confidence that you’re not going to lead with the bleeding stuff,” another antifa activist at the press conference said.
Inn said she wasn’t justifying violence, but instead “human naturing it.”
“I’m not justifying it, I’m human naturing it,” Inn said. “In the sense that if somebody is in your face and going ‘nin nin nin’ and because they think they can because they’re privileged… we cannot take this lightly in San Francisco.”
Videos from the event on Sunday showed antifa mobs attacking right-wingers with sticks, mace and bottles of their own urine. Antifa were also seen spitting all over an innocent Trump supporter after attacking him with mace and stealing his Trump hat and glasses.
Odds are the leftist establishment is afraid this antifa violence is backfiring bigly.
