    Donald Trump has made warnings about the threat of antifa and “far-left fascism” a central part of his re-election campaign. But in reality leftwing attacks have left far fewer people dead than violence by rightwing extremists, new research indicates, and antifa activists have not been linked to a single murder in decades.

    A new database of nearly 900 politically motivated attacks and plots in the United States since 1994 includes just one attack staged by an anti-fascist that led to fatalities. In that case, the single person killed was the perpetrator.

    Over the same time period, American white supremacists and other rightwing extremists have carried out attacks that left at least 329 victims dead, according to the database.

    I can't read the post, but the title of the thread might just as well be,"VW Things not linked to crossings of the Tappan Zee Bridge".

    Just because no one that was asked knows if it happened doesn't mean it didn't.

    You'd think if there was a connection at least one case would have popped up by now though...

    Is it possible that maybe, just maybe, the "Antifa threat" is not actually a big deal and actually a re-election stunt? When was the last time you heard about that migrant caravan that popped up right before the midterms? Could it be, dare I say it, fake news?

    Give it time . . . 5 years ago, noone in their right mind would ever have thought that leaders at the FBI would commit treason. All it took to uncover the truth was a lengthier, more energetic investigation than liberals wanted to allow.

    If Antifa is no longer the "huge threat" it is being played up as come 2021, I just hope you think hard about why you were told it was. And if Trump wins, look out for the next big threats in 2022 and 2024.
