Former Antifa member says the group must be condemned


APPLICATION THAT COULD BE HUGE. GRIFF: THAT’S NOT THE ONLY NEWS ON THE WEST COAST. WHAT WE WERE REFERENCING EARLIER IS PORTLAND IS EMBRACING FOR MORE ANTIFA PROTESTS WHICH WOULD BRING THE VIOLENCE WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE, RIGHT? REMEMBER ALL THAT MAYOR OUT THERE TRYING TO DISCOURAGE THIS STUFF. AS WE SAW ANDY NOE THE CONSERVATIVE JOURNALIST WHO GOT BEATEN UP. HE HAS BEEN ON THIS CHANNEL A LOT. HERE IS A QUOTE FROM A FORMER MEMBER, GABRIEL OF ANTIFA IN AN OP-ED TO FOX NEWS BASICALLY SUMMING UP WHAT IT’S BECOME. ANTIFA HAS BECOME FAR MORE VIOLENT AND BOLD SINCE I WAS INVOLVED NEARLY A DECADE AGO. I HAVE FOLLOWED THE GROWTH IN NUMBERS EXTREMISM. I STRONGLY BELIEVE IT’S THE RECKLESSNESS OF THOSE WHO HAVE THE POWER AND RECKLESSNESS OF THE SOAPBOX. AS A SOCIETY WE NEED TO TAKE ANTIFA SERIOUSLY. THAT MEANS IT’S FULL-TIME FOR OUR LEADERS AND HONEST ABOUT EXPOSING A REAL DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY AND AMERICAN PRINCIPLES. WHAT WE’RE LIKELY TO HAVE LATER TODAY IS THIS PATRIOTS MARCH, A CONSERVATIVE GROUP COMING. AS WELL AS ANTIFA. WE COULD HAVE CLASHES THROUGHOUT LATER ON THIS AFTERNOON. JEDEDIAH: WE HAVE HAD GABRIEL ON THE SHOW. IMPORTANT VOICE. IS HE A FORMER MEMBER OF ANTIFA AS YOU SAID, GRIFF. HE HAS INSIDE KNOWLEDGE AS TO WHAT THE MOTIVATION OF THE GROUP IS. WHAT BELIEFS THEY HOLD ON THE INSIDE. IT’S VERY SCARY RIGHT NOW. YOU WANT TO DEFEND PEOPLE’S RIGHT TO PROTEST. THIS IS A CORNER STONE OF THIS REPUBLIC WE LIVE. IN AT THE SAME TIME IT, BECOMES VERY SCARY WHEN JOURNALISTS GOING TO COVER THESE PROTESTS FEAR THEIR OWN LIVES AND SAFETY. THAT IS PROFOUNDLY UNAMERICAN TO VIOLATE PEOPLE’S RIGHTS TO PROTEST BY INFUSING THESE MOVEMENTS WITH VIOLENCE AND WITH A LOT OF FEAR. YOU KNOW, PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO. THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES, DIFFERING OPINIONS. WHAT YOU ARE SEEING ON CAMERA RIGHT NOW, WHICH WAS FROM THE LAST PROTEST IN PORTLAND IN JUNE, THAT IS ANDY NGO, WHO GOT ASSAULTED, YOU REMEMBER WE COVERED THIS AT THE TIME AND YOU SAW IMAGES OF HIM AND HIS FACE HAD BEEN BADLY HURT. HE HAD GONE TO THE HOSPITAL. THIS IS DESPICABLE BEHAVIOR ON BEHALF OF ANY MOVEMENT. GRIFF: THE MAYOR WAS CRITICIZED IN WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING NOW, ONE THING IS MISSING, THAT IS A POLICE PRESENCE. ALMOST AS IF PORTLAND ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN. WE WILL SEE IN TODAY’S PROTEST, WHATEVER UNFOLDS WHETHER OR NOT THE MAYOR AND THE CITY LEADERS SAY HEY, LISTEN, WE DON’T WANT ANOTHER ANDY NGO SITUATION. TODD: IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THE CULPRITS HAVE NOT YET BEEN PROSECUTED IN THAT SITUATION. ONE FINAL NOTE ON, THIS YOU THINK THAT KIND OF VIOLENCE WOULD BE CALLED OUT BY EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE 2020
