Mara Liasson compares Antifa to American troops storming Normandy where huge numbers of them were killed..
Biggest antifa rally in history. https://t.co/ypa46PvYx1— Mara Liasson (@MaraLiasson) June 6, 2020
Comment by Matt Taibbi:
Antifa is explicitly a violent marxist terrorist group. They don't hide this. It's in their literature & actions. The idea they're antifascists like the people who stormed beaches during d-day is an absolute farce. They r full blown communist radicals & so are their sympathizers.— Jordan Schachtel @ dossier.substack.com (@JordanSchachtel) June 6, 2020
In the relevant sequence, an Antifa-affiliated protester called Staab a kutta (a Hindi word meaning, “dog,” apparently) and “slut.” Then the masked protester demanded that press “get the fuck out” and stop filming, pointing in Staab’s face and making the following bizarre comment about a story we ran in July called “Colombia in Chaos”:
You fucking endanger people by flying to fucking Colombia and endangering everyone by opening them up to Covid!
Beyond the total incoherence of that comment generally, calling a woman a name like “slut” obviously flies in the face of what antifascist protesters generally claim to be their beliefs about things like misogyny. In any case, Staab then approached the protesters without her cameras out to try to talk things through, at which point they tossed paint at her, maced her, and threw her to the ground. Eventually, they also smashed both her iPhone and the lens for her digital camera. “Out!” they screamed. “How many fucking times do we have to tell you?”
