Leftwing Antifa “activists” rioted against a group of “fascists” in Seattle.
The problem? They accidentally protested the wrong group.
Reporter Andy Ngo, who was harassed by Antifa for bringing a camera to their counterprotest, wrote in the Daily Wire that “the entire demonstration was organized based on misinformation.”
Antifa was out protesting a group called Washington State Three Percent, a mainstream constitutionalist nonprofit that was holding a rally.
They thought they were protesting a white supremacy group called 3% Security Force.
“The Washington State Three Percent is a registered independent charity whose name pays homage to American colonists who fought for independence,” Ngo wrote. “The group unfortunately bears a similar name to the 3% Security Force, a radical anti-government militia that provided security for the Charlottesville, Virginia white nationalist rally last year.”
“Intentional or not, leftist activists in Seattle rallied people to their cause by claiming the Washington group is filled with white supremacists and anti-Semites,” he added.
“The irony of a mob of mostly white ‘anti-racists’ harassing a gay Asian-American journalist was lost on them,” Ngo added, about himself. “‘Racist, sexist, anti-gay; far-right bigot go away!’” they repeated like a mantra.”
“The protest last weekend demonstrates once again that when overzealous ‘anti-fascist’ ideologues can’t find actual fascists, they will make them up,” Ngo concluded. “And the people they purport to protect—minorities and people of color—aren’t safe from their indiscriminate abuse and threats.”
