Remember, they’re NOT a violent domestic terrorist group. No, no, no… they ‘only hate Nazis’.
One poor, naive shmuck went to a protest with good intentions and came back with a hard life lesson.
Normally, if you see an American flag anywhere near an Antifa protest, it will be assumed there is some kind of a right-of-center counter-protest. Because our side esteems the flag highly. Theirs, well, they’ve got a different reputation
Maybe this guy was trying to ‘reclaim’ patriotism for the Left. Or maybe he’s just that naive about what makes other protesters on his side tick.
Here’s the action.
Who was the poor guy being ragdolled by Antifa over the flag? His name is Paul Welch, and he’s a self-described ‘slightly-Progressive leftist’.
Perhaps Paul will be rethinking his political leanings now that he’s seen the true (masked) face of his political fellow-travelers.
At a rally in Portland, he took no sides. He’s not part of Antifa, and he’s no fan of Patriot prayer. He just wanted to show up and have his say about a local issue involving police use of force.
He brought his American flag as part of his protest.
When some punks dressed in black demanded he hand it over, he refused.
Soon a group of black-clad antifascists, or antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued.
It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, laying on the ground in a pool of his own blood.
He’s just a left-leaning activist who dared to think it’s still ok to take pride in Old Glory.
You know, that rare thing we used to call ‘a Democrat’.
“I had felt like showing that a liberal, free Portland or any major city, really is much more American and much more numerous and strong than any of these interloping groups,” he said.
A “slightly progressive leftist” by his telling, Welch is a registered Democrat in Oregon, voting records show. He cast his ballot for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential primary and Hillary Clinton in the general election, he said.
The 38-year-old line cook is also no stranger to street protests in Portland. He said he attended the Women’s March held during the weekend of Donald Trump’s inauguration.
This summer, Welch, who works six days a week at a catering company, stopped by the Occupy ICE encampment on his days off to bring protesters water, toilet paper and sunblock, he said.
As you can imagine, he’s not exactly a fan of Trump.
But he got his ass kicked anyway. Because Antifa doesn’t actually care about the phantom NAZI’s they claim to chase. They just drop that label on anyone they want to kick the crap out of.
Notice how casually his attacker walked away after hitting him in the head? And how the film ends with him on the ground and not a single ‘Compassionate Leftist’ coming to his aid?
But they’re the ‘good guys’. The ‘caring guys’. The ones who won’t let anyone be dehumanized. Who don’t mind smacking the s**t out of anyone who they think just *might* be a sub-human political enemy… and leave them to bleed in the street.
And then they crow about what a benefit they are to society, and how ‘righteous’ their cause is.
If you’re wondering why people on the left ‘Walk Away’ — rewatch that clip.
And the next time you hear the line about how it’s ok to punch Nazis, tell them about Paul Welch, the concussed leftist Progressive. The one that was KO’d and left bleeding on the street by Antifa for not letting them steal and destroy his flag.
The Right isn’t the real enemy of America — and it doesn’t matter what name they try to tag us with.
Because unlike Antifa, we don’t see Paul as an inhuman enemy. We see him as a guy that was assaulted by a criminal gang for trying to exercise his First Amendment right to peaceably assemble.
Sadly, we live in a day and age where even Professors are hitting people with bike locks — and getting nothing worse than Three Years’ Probation for it.
If your leftist friends STILL don’t get it, show them this.
