Tiffany: Antifa violence is not a ‘myth’

Empower Wisconsin | July 30, 2020

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON  — U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst), recently named to the House Judiciary Committee, on Tuesday skewered the committee chairman’s absurd notion that Antifa and the violence it has wrought in Portland is a “myth.” 

Tiffany, who represents Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District, took aim at Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) during a hearing in which majority Democrats raked Attorney General William Barr over the hot coals of their Trump hatred. 

Nadler, the ringmaster of the political circus, this week told a reporter that the radical militant movement of Antifa “is a myth that is being spread only in Washington, D.C.” 

“I want to emphasize to my colleagues on the left that if you think you’re insulated from Antifa, which is supposedly a myth, you should really think about that, because them and other radicals will not spare violence on anyone,” Tiffany said during his allotted time to question Barr. 

Tiffany described to his fellow committee members the rioting and the violence that has swept through Madison this summer amid what liberals and their PR agents in the mainstream press have described as “mostly peaceful” Black Lives Matter protests. 

Barr noted the violence against local and federal law enforcement officials in Portland, Ore., where Antifa and its well-organized disorder campaign is in full view. Even the liberal New York Times begrudgingly acknowledged that the “mostly peaceful” riots have turned violent. 

The newspaper noted a July 22 court filing in which the U.S. attorney’s office in Oregon said that 28 federal law enforcement officers had been injured during protests in Portland.

“The most serious injury to an officer to date occurred when a protester wielding a two-pound sledgehammer struck an officer in the head and shoulder when the officer tried to prevent the protester from breaking down a door to the Hatfield Courthouse,” the filing stated.

Other injuries included “broken bones, hearing damage, eye damage, a dislocated shoulder, sprains, strains, and contusions.”

And the Department of Homeland Security has reported that agents have been burned by fireworks and a “caustic substance” thrown over a fence surrounding the federal courthouse they are trying to protect from “mostly peaceful” protesters hellbent on burning it down.

“Their anarchy is meant to destroy our country,” Tiffany said. “It is not a myth, folks. What’s happening is real across our country and we need to stop the riots.”
