“Activists Seek Peace Through Violence”: CNN Quickly Scrubs Title Of Antifa Puff Peace

Mac Slavo – August 22nd, 2017 – SHTFplan.com

How did we reach a point in our society, where groups like Antifa think nothing of wreaking havoc on the streets on a regular basis? These people routinely beat those they disagree with, cause property damage, and shut down dissent without a single iota of shame. You have to ask yourself, how did this group and others like it, get so bold as to think that they can flippantly disregard the law and openly riot in the streets?

The answer is that the media is responsible for this mess. It’s the media that has repeatedly ignored, apologized for, and even celebrated their actions. How else would these thugs have come to the conclusion that what they’re doing is okay? They’re constantly being lionized by our morally bankrupt media.

CNN made that perfectly clear last week. They published a piece that was highly sympathetic to Antifa titled “Unmasking the Leftist Antifa Movement: Activists Seek Peace Through Violence.”

This past weekend CNN drew more criticism for its left-wing bias after posting a profile on the violent left-wing group “Antifa,” that rather generously described the communist group as “seeking peace through violence.” Despite the obvious contradiction in terms, at least the headline noted the group’s violent motives (albeit in a really stupid way.) But that phrase was scrubbed just hours later by CNN in an apparent move to not offend members of the radical-left group.

The original article appeared online Friday afternoon, with the headline: “Unmasking the Leftist Antifa Movement: Activists Seek Peace Through Violence.” That one mention of violence in the headline was the only real objective criticism CNN’s Sara Ganim and Chris Welch had to offer throughout their lengthy piece, interviewing several self-identified Antifa activists…

…If this was a radical, violent right-wing group, it’s a given that CNN would have plenty of left-wing groups on hand to denounce their ideologies and behavior. When the group’s violent methods were finally first brought up in the article, CNN justifies the violence as a means to an end, because, the antifa members say, they’re committing violence to “eradicate hatred.” Well, if you put it that way, it all makes sense!

And if you can believe it, CNN apparently didn’t scrub the title because of public outcry. According to an update posted at the bottom of the article, This story has been updated to clarify that counterprotesters say they are not to blame for violence at the Charlottesville protest.” Since the title is the only change CNN made, it appears that they were pressured by Antifa to change the title. I think the real reason Antifa wanted to change the title, is because they don’t like their name being synonymous with a phrase that reeks of “ends justify the means” logic, even though that’s exactly what they’re all about.

  1. Dear President Trump,
    While It is true enough that all this strife and hate in our streets has been caused in large part, by ‘the media’ stirring up the masses, -however a lot of blame must fall directly onto ‘the authorities’ for not arresting those that flagrantly break American laws en-mass, on the spot. And that would certainly include Mayors and other government sycophants assisting in tearing America asunder. Shall I list some? OK:
    ~Anarchy
    ~ Assault & Battery
    ~ Destruction of public property
    ~ Destruction of National Historic Monuments
    ~ Destruction of private property
    ~ Disruption of public commerce (blocking streets- same applies to islamists as well )

    When will the US Government DO ITS JOB of protecting its citizens? it’s PRIMARY Job?
    Further, when will the constitutionally mandated hangings begin for those who fail, and / or commit this heinous treason upon us all?

    1. This tactic is as old as tyranny itself. The commie police stood back while the Jews were attacked as well as the NAZI;s and the brownshirts.
      Police Chiefs are POLITICAL APPOINTEES. If the mayor is a lefty, the Police Chief will be as well.
      About time the patriots figure this out instead of hoping that the Police Chiefs will do their job. Their job is to protect the mayor and do whatever he dictates.
      If you want to have a patriotic demonstration, choose a location with a patriotic mayor. If it is possible to find one. Or one where it is legal to be armed and defend yourself. DO NOT COUNT ON THE COPS TO PROTECT YOU !!!
      Just ask the Bundy’s and Finicum’s.

  2. “The answer is that the media is responsible for this mess. It’s the media that has repeatedly ignored, apologized for, and even celebrated their actions.

    It’s not just the media, people like Loretta Lynch were saying “Pick up a Brick,” and Soros bussing them in like the Brown Shirts. Here’s the rub, we have to protect their right to free speech along with all rights and privileges guaranteed in the Constitution. The Soros case may be different due to facilitation. No one person’s rights are better than the next person’s. It’s a tough row to hoe, but it needs to be that way for freedom to ensue.

  3. (quote): “… we have to protect their right to free speech along with all rights and privileges guaranteed in the Constitution….” (end quote). Uh, nope. Their rights to so-called-free-speech end the millisecond their actions and/or violence disrupt, impact or prevent another’s rights. I don’t know if I am reading the above comment correctly; but, I for one, do not subscribe to protecting anyone who is committing actions that are violent (and not self-defense) and actions that impact the life, liberty or property of another American.

    1. “Actions” are different than “Speech” Linda. Arresting for their Vile “Actions” is not only warranted, but highly recommended. Here’s the thing, “Words” are no more dangerous than an “Unloaded Gun” sitting on the table. It’s the user interface that creates havoc.

      Point is, we make their case for “Gun Control” if we advocate “Speech Control.”

  4. It’s not just the “media,” it’s the police, courts, legislature, schools, even some churches.
