Left-Wing Fascist Group Antifa Launching Violent Demonstrations on Nov. 4 to Overthrow Trump

By Rachel Alexander Published on November 4, 2017

UPDATED: November 5, 2017 
Few protesters showed up to Saturday’s rallies around the country. Some, like the one scheduled to take place in Phoenix, didn’t take place at all. There appeared to be about 150 attending the march in Seattle, with no arrests. The protest in Los Angeles was larger, but there was also a fairly large counterprotest. Several hundred attended the rally in Times Square. 

Below is a video taken by counterprotesters at the Los Angeles rally.

The violent left-wing group refusefacism.org is planning to start protests on Saturday until President Trump is removed from office. The effort asserts that “The Trump/Pence Regime is a Fascist Regime.” Organizers claim Trump’s presidency is illegitimate. The effort includes a broad coalition of groups such as the Revolutionary Communist Party.

Antifa flyerPromotional materials direct followers:

On November 4, 2017: Take To The Streets And Public Squares
in cities and towns across the country continuing day after day and night after night — not stopping — until our DEMAND is met:
This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!

There’s even a list of prepared tweets for protesters. The group presents their protest against the “nightmare” as a matter of life and death. “It can already be said of Trump/Pence that ‘first they came for’ the Muslims, then the Mexicans.”

Then all refugees. Then women. Then Black and Latino people. LGBTQ persons. The environment, and anyone who doesn’t conform or submit to their vision and plan for a nation cohered around white supremacy and a political form of Christian fundamentalism, that should rightly be called Christian Fascism.

Protests are planned in nineteen cities, including New York and Washington. They’re almost all Democratic cities, located in mostly blue states. Some speculate the group avoided red areas of the country due to higher percentages of gun owners. Also, the police are less likely in red areas to look the other way at violence.

Remove Trump From Office, But How?

“We formed this organization around two main points,” Andy Zee, one of the group’s organizers, told The Washington Post. “One is that the nightmare must end, and second, in the name of humanity we must refuse to accept a fascist America.”

They hope to emulate the South Korean mass protest movement. It began in October 2016 and led to President Park Geun-hye’s removal from office in March. The movement, he says, “captures how millions of people feel right now … where you may face persecution or even death.”

Zee is fully aware the mainstream media leans to the left. He intends to enlist their help. He says, “CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post ‘must go all out’ to “hound the enemy.'” The group cleverly took out a full-page ad in The New York Times that almost looks like part of the actual paper. 

Refuse Fascism claims that Trump is a modern form of Hitler who is starting a new Nazi regime in the U.S. “The Trump/Pence regime is more dangerous to the world than even Hitler. … There is method to Trump’s madness that echoes Hitler.” One call to action uses that comparison to motivate activists. “Those who lived through Nazi Germany and sat on the sidelines, looking on as Hitler demonized, criminalized, and eventually rounded up one group after another, became shameful collaborators with monstrous crimes.”

The “Resistance” and Al Qaeda

Refuse Fascism claims that it opposes violence, but it speaks in the most violent, extreme way about “Trump/Pence.” And the images they like don’t encourage trust in their non-violence. Refuse Fascism ATL’s poster asks includes an image of a pole poked through Trump’s severed head, drawn as a pig. There are flies buzzing around it.

Law enforcement in big cities around the country are making preparations in case their actions fit their speech.

  • Howard Rosenbaum

    Antifa, come on you guys. Your stealing the thunder from “impeach 45 Mad Maxie” .
    Well at least her comedy routine is sort of innocuous. Your routine transcends the
    absurd for the ridiculous. Though there is nothing ridiculous about your unbridled
    belligerence for the constitution & the values it was designed to protect. You have
    heard , there is a constitution to protect Americans from your kind of “comedy”.
    You can read about it on Wikipedia ….

    • Chip Crawford

      So true, and how about Al Sharpie. They should team up. It could be Sharpie and Harpie, or Harpie and Sharpie. Yeah, I think Maxie has more moxie when it comes down to it. She’d hip bump him to second billing. Yes ma’am!

      • Hmmm…


  • Karen

    I notice that you never refute the statement that Trump intends to imprison or kill all his political opponents. Do you intend to kill us?

    • Chip Crawford

      We don’t focus on lies — bad try, no sale. Where is your klan, uh, Antifa group gathering for your big event?

      • Karen

        Do you support imprisoning Trump’s political opponents? Answer yes or no.

        • Chip Crawford

          Your bullying speaks of your motivations. No, Accuser, I do not, and neither does Mr. Trump. He shoots off his mouth. That’s one of his faults. But he’s not all fault, and hopefully, neither are you. But the Democratic party and HRC matters at issue have needed thorough examination for some time. But this frantic, panicked response is deliberate and right out of the Sol Alinsky playbook, which is Fascist for real. So, we see you and your ilk, “Karen,” for who you are. If hate speech were truly chargeable, you all would be in deep trouble.

          • Hannah

            If you think about it, Trump’s the worst fascist ever. Mussolini and Hitler had the media singing their praises all throughout their reign, not railing against them like spoiled children. Sheesh! Gotta step up your game, Mr. President, if any of these labels are to truly stick.

          • Chip Crawford

            lol; great point; the media are singing the praises of their fascist friends elsewhere.

          • Chip Crawford

            Hmmm – It’s gotten very quiet in here. Amazing that when you turn the lights on, all the rats and bats scurry away. Good job, group.

          • Sonny’s Mom

            Maybe after standing around, “screaming at the sky” for a few hours, they’ll all get cold and hungry and end up going home.

          • Chip Crawford

            I hope they reconcile.

          • Karen

            To the destruction of the country and the world with it? All of Trump and he Republicans policies are designed to ruin the planet and the polity. Not one thing he wants to do is short of completely catastrophic. Of course I oppose the end of the world.

          • Chip Crawford

            Huh? someone else’s post? You’ve gone off the rails here.

          • Karen

            He is the President and is no longer allowed to ‘shoot off his mouth.’ He is now obligated to live up to the office and he clearly is not.

          • Chip Crawford

            You may not like the policies proposed, the deregulation, judicial appointments so far, but your opposition doesn’t disqualify the man. His faults and weaknesses do not negate the solid progress he has made in righting the ship. That you don’t think so, doesn’t negate the fact. You personally have some allowances and obligations you need to tend to. How are you doing on those? Maybe your stewardship should be restricted to that realm unless you plan to follow the biblical mandate to pray for those in authority rather than denounce them.

        • Bob C

          where is the world did you ever see anywhere that the President of the United States plan to kill or imprison anyone for political reasons?

          • Karen

            His expressed desire to imprison the woman who ran against him and his use of “lock her up!” as a slogan. I’m certain he would never say that about a white male opponent. His statements of regret that he can’t use the Justice Department as his own personal police force. His inability to condemn open Nazis after they started a riot in Charlottesville VA. His admiration for Hitler when he was younger. Trump is a fascist and fascist imprison their opponents.

          • Chip Crawford

            And Satan is the accuser of the brethren.

        • Sonny’s Mom

          Here’s my answer: What planet are you living on?

      • Kathy

        Thank you for your defense concerning the post on the other article…sure you know which one I am referencing. I am still laughing about your reaction…it was pretty funny even if you didn’t mean it to be.

        • Chip Crawford

          Yo Kathy, ha ha, hey it was outrageous enough to be kind of funny. No retort so far …

  • Hannah

    You cannot claim to want the best for our nation and in the same breath preach death and wanton violence. This madness is the product of a selfish people who didn’t get what they wanted and now they take to the streets, thinking that throwing tantrums will force Mommy and Daddy’s hand. Only this is not home – this is the real world. The Americans who voted for Trump are, for the most part, the silent majority; the screaming few just seem louder because they have the microphone.

    Go on and scream. God rules this nation through His people, wherever they are, and He hears our prayers. Let us use this horrible example to pray for our President and Vice President’s safety, for those in power, and for our hearts to remain tender towards God’s will. Don’t succumb to hate, but instead submit to the Truth.

    • Karen

      Did you pray for President Obama’s safety and success in office? I seriously doubt it, and if you and yours did not do that, there is no reason for me to wish success on Dolt 45.

      • Bob C

        Hey Karen, Yes I prayed for Obama as a person and leader. No I did not pray for the success of his agenda as it was for the most part anti American.

      • Hannah

        First, thank you for ruling me guilty without just cause. That shows a very loving, sensitive attitude. You have no idea who I am, and you don’t care to. For what it’s worth, I did pray for Obama when he was in office – not nearly enough, but that can also be said of Trump as well. I’m negligent because I’m fallen. I’m selfish, and I must die to self daily if I am to reflect my Jesus. I need to pray for those in power regularly, not when it strikes my fancy, and I admit to that.

        Secondly, Jesus Himself called for us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. He knew how easy it was/is to love those who love you already; because He is Good, He called us to be more than just lovers of self and love the unlovable or the hard to love. Do you do that? Do you love those who hate you? Do you love those who revile you? Your speech does not reflect that state of the heart, and trust me, it is and will be a daily struggle.

        Lastly, regardless of political stance, religious proclivities, or personal beliefs, those in power are to be considered God-ordained. He both raises up kings and tears down kings. Those in power who display evil and menace towards His children are still there because He allows it, just as He allowed evil kings to overthrow Israel and just as He allowed pagan kings to help bring His will to pass. Satan asks permission of God, so why do we think that the evil that runs rampant is out of His control? I don’t always agree with President Trump when it comes to personal convictions: truly, I wish he’d back off a bit with the Twitter thing. However, he’s made it clear since his election that he will protect the people and defend the Constitution, and I have seen that in everything he’s done. If you allow hate and bitterness free reign in your heart, that will be all you see. Poisoning yourself to hurt others only kills you.

    • Kathy

      Wow, you really hit the nail on the head in both your posts, Hannah! Way to go!

      • Hannah

        Thank you. I know it sounds like humblebragging, but please believe me when I say that I only write what He wants me to. There are times that I don’t listen, but for the most part, I try.

  • Sonny’s Mom

    Imagine how many of them will be fired for not showing up at work. More jobs for us!
