“This is very similar to how the intifada terror campaigns against Israel worked in the past. The terrorists knew they could not win a full military confrontation against the well-trained and well-equipped Israeli military. Winning wasn’t even necessarily the goal. The goal was to undermine Israel’s legitimacy, its right to even exist.”
(Bryan Preston – PJ Media) Reason has a fascinating piece about a trans woman Trump supporter who went undercover within antifa in Portland during this summer’s simmering riots. Getting in was easy: just don black and wear a mask.
Do yourself a favor and read the whole thing. Here are a couple of takeaways.
There are different types of bloc organization styles. The building block of antifa is what’s called an affinity group, people you live and work with and trust and know in real life. All the planning is done within that closed bloc, and they don’t let everyone know [what they’re going to do]. I didn’t know that they were going to burn the Portland Police Association when I joined. What they did was put a call out that said, “Anyone show up in black that night at this place, and you can join the action.”
It’s like a combined arms type thing, almost like the military. They work together and are mutually reinforcing.
As far as whether antifa/black bloc is an “idea” or an “organization,” that may be the wrong line to draw. The answer is “yes.”
