Capitol assault was orchestrated by ANTIFA

Please, don’t be like #FakeNewsMedia, don’t rush to judgment on assault on Capitol. Wait for investigation. All may not be (and likely is not) what appears. Evidence growing that fascist ANTIFA orchestrated Capitol attack with clever mob control tactics.

Evidence follows:
- Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL)

Wow, those ANTIFA sure are clever. They can mind-control Trumpers and make them commit crimes!

"They" meaning whom? Mo Brooks, et al?

Does he need to be? And if so, from whom?

Sorry if it seems I'm being obtuse, but I've seen a lot of claims recently, including claims that "mass executions" are imminent.

Plenty of Republicans are getting deaths threats and are verbally assaulted when they are seen as not being sufficiently supportive of Trump.
They have seen what happened to Kemp after he couldn't fake the election for Trump.

They all know that the mob is coming for them, they just want to delay them coming for them, personally and hope they get arrested for killing more obvious "Enemies of Trump" first and get arrested for it.
It's a classical "I just have to run faster than the slowest guy" strategy.

Ah, I understand. So Mo Brooks doesn't actually believe what he's saying, he's just saying it because he's worried for his own personal safety?

Maybe. I can't mind-read.

it can easily be both.
He might believe it, but he is compelled to say it out loud to signal to the Trump Purists that they should please shoot someone else first.

after all, the politically wise move would be for all Republicans to just shut up and wait, knowing full well that things are not going to look better in a week from now.

Personally, if I'm worried about that I figure that the safest thing to say is nothing at all, at least until it is apparent who is winning and who is running for cover.

Mo Brooks is from Alabama, right next door to me here in Mississippi. As someone with a life-long experience with this sort of thing, I can tell you that he most likely really does believe it (and probably still does, even after his "evidence" was shown to be completely untrue- The Daily Beast via MSN). The thinking goes something like this-

"Patriots," by definition, do not riot.

Antifa is defined, simply and solely, as "people that riot."

Therefore, if there were riots, it was Antifa doing them; if any "patriots" were involved in any kind of disturbances, then the disturbances were not riots, they were protests.

Capitol assault orchestrated by ANTIFA ??

Antifa was duped into thinking they orchestrated it. Cui bono?

But anyway....Why are you even talking about Antifa since you and Nadler assert it is a myth ?

The "agent provocateur" cop-out is almost universal:

https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/10...-blm-protests/

Reports of agents provocateurs, outside agitators and police infiltration of protests are appearing throughout the country and involving law-enforcement agents and rightwing nationalists. The most public role of such a disruptor was detailed in Minneapolis at the time of Trump’s provocative tweets and involved someone who has come to be known as the “Umbrella Man.”

On Sunday night, Twitter banned Alexander’s personal account and an account for “Stop The Steal.” Alexander didn’t respond to a request for comment. Alexander is a convicted felon, after pleading guilty to felony property theft in 2007 and felony credit card abuse in 2008. Alexander first appeared in conservative politics in the Tea Party era under the name “Ali Akbar,” organizing a group called the National Bloggers’ Club that was tied to “shady data collection operations.” In the Trump era, now using a new name, Alexander emerged as an idiosyncratic, trash-talking MAGA die-hard affiliated with figures like InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, anti-Muslim Trump booster Laura Loomer, blundering provocateur Jacob Wohl, and Trump ally Roger Stone.....Alexander is the man trumps Goons say is Antifa...HAHAHAHA

Whatever.


Its a real and effective trick. A variation on false flag attack. A lone agent provocateur could pull it off, but more likely there is a conspiracy behind each instance.

By definition it happens more often than the known instances ie we cannot know when it has happened.

Pseudo skeptics tend to shy away from this

Who do you mean; the rioters or antifa? And whose speech was suppressed? And "does bad things" isn't a very useful definition of fascist anyway.

It's easy. They're your brave loyal patriots right up to the moment you realise they crossed the line into behaviour that's going to have bad consequences for your side and that's the moment they turn out to have been your enemies all along wearing a false beard and glasses.

It is very unfair to give Antifa credit for something the Nazis are so proud of.

Well a number of the insurrectionists were off duty cops. Not sure if that makes them more likely to be anti-fa agents provocateurs or not.
