Lauren Poe, the Mayor of Gainesville who praised the domestic terrorist group, has yet to condemn their deranged behavior even as they continue to violent assault patriotic Americans.
By Jacob Engels
Several months ago, Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe tarnished his office and reputation for eternity when he praised the domestic terrorist organization Antifa, even after members of the group firebombed a government facility and brutally attacked journalist Andy Ngo. Mr. Ngo was hospitalized with a brain bleed after being pummeled by dozens of masked Antifa in Portland as they threw milkshakes made from liquid concrete at him for simply being there to document an Antifa gathering.
Since the election of Donald Trump in 2016, Antifa has plotted dozens of attacks and has spent the past three years viciously attacking anyone who dares to support President Trump or make attempts at filming their domestic terrorist activities. The Dayton shooter, who killed nine people and injured dozens of others, frequently showed support for Antifa’s tactics on his social media accounts.
Despite these shocking truths, Mayor Lauren Poe decided to stand by his support of the violent domestic terrorist organization when we exposed him several months ago and he has shown no signs of remorse or regret for his actions. He has refused on multiple occasions to denounce Antifa.
As we approach the 2020 election cycle, every American can see how divided and on edge this country has become over how we handle our political process. More importantly, there are growing concerns about whether or not groups like Antifa will be able to accept election results favorable to Donald Trump and Republicans after years of being whipped up into a bloodthirsty frenzy by the mainstream media.
Just recently, Antifa members stalked journalist Andy Ngo to his home on Halloween and banged on his door for nearly thirty minutes in a scene that looks like it came straight out of a horror film.
Another Antifa member was sentenced to six years for attacking someone with a baton and another was just arrested on charges related to an attack over a year ago at a political protest.
Antifa members have also assaulted people trying to attend speeches by conservative commentators Dinesh D’Souza and Ann Coulter in recent weeks.
If Mayor Poe is contemplating his New Year’s resolutions, may we suggest he consider apologizing for lending the credibility of his office and personal support to a known domestic terrorist group like Antifa?
Failing to do so makes Lauren Poe an accessory to their mayhem and carnage. Failing to do so also requires direct action from Floridians and Gainesville residents, action I have no problem organizing and funding.
If he wants to refuse to admit he was wrong in praising domestic terrorists like Antifa… then I will make it my New Year’s resolution to bring a peaceful protest to his city. A protest that will remind Gainesville residents that Mayor Lauren Poe stands with domestic terrorists.
