Letter to the editor: Anti-Antifa

Antifa seems to be everywhere. It’s sad commentary on the divisiveness in our world today. I believe that the Black community and Black leaders need to publicly call these groups out for what they’re doing to our community!
Over the years antifa has grown in number and reach. Today they are on a very aggressive path of destruction that has been tearing through the northwest U.S. and is now in our own backyard. This past summer, protestors destroyed businesses in downtown Denver by shattering windows, all in the name of Black Lives Matter. This destruction took place while ignoring the call from the mother of Elijah McClain, a Black woman, who personally asked them to stop the violence, looting, and rioting. According to an opinion letter in the Wall Street Journal, “suggesting that Antifa is an undefined, loosely organized group with no strategy takes a line right out of the Susan Rice-Ben Rhodes playbook about Benghazi being caused by a video.”
As the movement enters the mainstream, its sympathizers are escalating the violence from throwing rocks and blocking doors to physical assaults and, for the first time, killing. The rising level of violence from the group marks a sinister evolution from minor street crime to guerrilla tactics usually reserved for revolutionaries.
If we as a people, begin to examine the evidence before us, there is but one conclusion we can draw, and that conclusion:
Antifa is no friend to the black community!
