Antifa Rioters Vandalize Federal Strongholds in Philadelphia on NYE

(HorizonPost.com) – There were only very few people in New York City’s Times Square to witness the ball drop signaling the end of 2020 and the start of 2021. However, it seems like that at least one group — Antifa — wanted to continue their year of rioting and violence.

2020

Early in the year, there were several incidents of Black men losing their lives at the hands of law enforcement, leading to protests in cities across the nation. However, groups like the Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) allegedly sent outside agitators into those crowds, inciting them to riot.

Then, these domestic terrorists took over sections of two cities, Seattle, WA, and Portland, OR, by force of arms. When police did their job and started arresting people, the unthinkable happened. Democrats, who would like to lead this country, folded and left the American people hanging out to dry.

On the final day of the year, people allegedly affiliated with Antifa went on a spree of vandalism, defacing federal buildings in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) of Portland, Oregon, addressed New Year’s Eve rioting and damage, saying it was caused by “violent antifa [sic] and anarchists.”

Liberal Reactions

Former-VP Joe Biden (D) and Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) spent the summer stumping in their pursuit of the White House in the November election. Their reactions to the events were underwhelming at best.

On September 5, 2020, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran an op-ed by political commentator Ben Shapiro titled “Why won’t Biden condemn Antifa or BLM violence?” On June 1 of the year, Harris took it a step further than silence and tweeted a request for her followers to donate money to a group paying bail money for those arrested.

2021

On January 6, a joint session of Congress was convened to certify votes from the Electoral College. During that session, a group of armed protesters gained access to the Capitol building. Chaos ensued as the Capitol Police evacuated the building. There were several deaths, including one by gunshot and others by apparent medical emergencies.

Before any kind of investigation could even begin, Biden and the Liberal-biased media placed the blame squarely on the pro-Trump demonstrators who were in Washington, DC, that day. One story published in the New York Post seems to have gone under the mainstream media’s radar. It alleges two people who were part of the Antifa movement were seen at the riots wearing clothing supporting President Donald Trump.

It’s clear the fallout from the Capitol Hill riots has benefited the Democrats and caused a sharp turn in public opinion against Conservatives. If mainstream media allegations turn out to be the impetus behind all this, people might conclude that the perpetrators gave a great advantage to their opponents. It makes one wonder what determination the masses might make if the truth revealed radical Left groups actually fomented the riot.
