The radical left-wing anti-fascist organization -better known as Antifa- clashed with local police and the Secret Service at a counter-protest in the nation’s capital over the weekend; hurling bottles and chanting “F*** the Police’ just blocks from the White House.
“Members of Antifa were seen launching eggs, fireworks and water bottles at police officers and the Secret Service, beating people in the street and threatening members of the media during the uber-left, so-called anti-fascist group’s counter-protest of rightwing rallies this weekend in Washington, D.C. and Virginia,” writes Fox News.

The demonstration was a counter-protest to a ‘Unite the Right’ rally on the one-year anniversary of the shocking events in Charlottesville, which drew approximately 40 white nationalists to the region.
The rally also brought hundreds of non-violent, anti-racist demonstrators to the nation’s capital.

DNC RAGE: Radical Rep. Keith Ellison ENDORSES ANTIFA Terror Group
Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison openly supported the radical left-wing hate group commonly known as Antifa on Wednesday, posting a photo of himself holding the organization’s “Anti-Fascist Handbook” on social media.
Ellison published the ill-conceived selfie on twitter this week, adding that he “found the book that strike fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump.”
One key problem for the radical representative: Antifa is considered by FBI Director Christopher Wray as an “active domestic terror” ideology. Speaking with legislators last fall, the Bureau chief blasted the left-wing group over widespread violence at pro-Trump rallies throughout the country.
“While we’re not investigating Antifa as Antifa — that’s an ideology and we don’t investigate ideologies — we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations, where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology,” Wray told a House panel.
