Project Veritas in their latest undercover video series reveals how the far-left terror group Antifa practice eye-gouging, beating their opponents and create an all-round environment of fear and terror.
Antifa is short for anti-fascist. The group has long claimed a leadership role in violent movements across America and the world.
“They do not hesitate to either push back or incite some kind of violence. In our classes and in our meetings, before we do any sort of demonstration or Black Block, we talk about weapons detail and what we carry and what we should have,” said the Project Veritas Undercover Journalist.
Earlier this week, President Donald Trump said the United States would designate “Antifa” as a terrorist organization.
National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien echoed Trump’s comments Sunday morning, saying the violence “is being driven by ‘Antifa.’”
Attorney General William Barr announced in a statement that he will enforce action against the group, saying “violent radical elements” are hijacking legitimate protests to “pursue their own separate, violent, and extremist agenda.”
“I’ve been undercover with Rose City Antifa… depending on the setting, if I were to be caught or found out in a setting where I am present with them, it could escalate to violence against me,” a Project Veritas undercover journalist, who says he is no longer embedded in Antifa, said to open the tape
The video then shows undercover video of an Antifa member identified as Nicholas Cifuni telling others, “Don’t be that f——g guy with the goddamn spike brass knuckles getting photos taking of you. Police are going to be like ‘perfect we can prosecute these f——-s look how violent they are’ and not that we aren’t but we need to f——g hide that s—t.”
The undercover journalist said he is “about halfway” through the prospecting process that it takes to become a member of the violent group. It is unclear when the Antifa meeting that was secretly recorded occurred, but it appears to have taken place before recent protests related to Floyd’s death.
Wearing a black mask to protect his identity, the undercover journalist explained the steps Antifa allegedly takes to secretly meet with prospective members
“The whole goal of this is to get out there and do dangerous things as safely as possible,” a member is heard telling the group.
“Practice things like an eye gouge, it takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes,” the man identified as Cifuni said. “Consider, like, destroying your enemy, not, like, delivering a really awesome right hand, right eye, left eye blow, you know? It’s not boxing, it’s not kickboxing, it’s, like, destroying your enemy”
The undercover journalist said Antifa encourages members to dress in “Black Block,” which he says is a way of dressing that helps conceal the identity of members.
“They do not hesitate to either push back or incite some kind of violence. In our classes and in our meetings, before we do any sort of demonstration or Black Block, we talk about weapons detail and what we carry and what we should have,” the undercover journalist said.
Project Veritas Founder and CEO James O’Keefe added a disclaimer that his group does not condone violence.
“It is a sad time in our nation’s history with Antifa activists hijacking #blacklivesmatter protests in cities across the country, attacking the police and engaging in violence,” O’Keefe wrote. “In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized & driven by anarchic left extremist groups — far-left extremist groups using Antifa-like tactics.”
