UN Deletes Pro-Antifa Tweet After Backlash

UN Deletes Pro-Antifa Tweet After Backlash

Update (1755ET): And just like that, the UN has deleted their tweet professing support for Antifa.

President Trump wants to label Antifa a terrorist organization, which he first announced late last month in response to mayhem unleashed related to the George Floyd protests, which in many cities included rioting, looting, and large-scale vandalism.

He had declared so via Twitter on May 31 in follow-up to Attorney General William Barr’s statement at the time:  “The violence instigated and carried out by antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”

To the surprise of many, the United Nations has now issued a statement rebuking the White House attempt to impose the legal designation. Upon a UN statement being issued on Friday, counter-terrorism expert Max Abrahms at first thought it was a joke, but no it’s not The Onion:

UN #HumanRights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing #Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country. pic.twitter.com/2Pz2dMyq8k

The UN Geneva office cited unnamed experts associated with its Human Rights Council to express “profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing [Antifa] and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”

This even after there’s been widespread uncertainty and debate over just who or what the group actually is. Or Antifa might more appropriately be seen as a loosely defined movement espousing radical Leftist ideology. But the new UN statement appears positively supportive given it clearly asserted that Antifa is composed of mere anti-fascist activists”.

The unusual UN tweet and statement was widely mocked via conservative social media, for example with OAN journalist Jack Posobiec tweeting“The United Nations is running cover for an international extremist group that has conducted violent insurrectionist attacks across North America and Europe.”

He further stated ironically: “Antifa doesn’t exist and also the UN just endorsed them.”

And a number of others called for “defunding the UN”.

But more importantly, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took the UN Human Rights Council to task, slamming the body’s ‘hypocrisy’ in lecturing Washington on race issues while being “a haven for dictators and democracies that indulge them.”

“If the Council were honest, it would recognize the strengths of American democracy and urge authoritarian regimes around the world to model American democracy and to hold their nations to the same high standards of accountability and transparency that we Americans apply to ourselves,” Pompeo added.

Meanwhile, speaking of unusual and perhaps bizarre statements, one sheriff’s office in Louisiana issued this video “warning” to Antifa, which has also gone viral:

    1. Never too late to remind us who are our true allies are. Stand with those patriots of the Louisiana’s county/state Sheriff’s, State and US law enforcement. Lock and load.

  1. Get the US out of the UN and get the UN out of the US.

    The United Nations is not a positive force in the world but a group of self entitled bureaucrat minorities that hate America. Kick their organization OUT of the country and America should quit the United Nations. It is the ‘parent’ of the corrupt WHO – need more be said?

  2. Delete UN. Evict the terrorist supporting UN. EVICT ALL FAUX DELEGATES. RECLAIM OUR PROPERTY. CHARGE UN AND ALL MEMBERS RENT BACK TO ORIGIN OF UN!

  3. Antifa is largely funded by foriegn nationalists whose soul purpose is the destruction and radicalization of America as we know it. For that matter, do is the DNC! If you take away our homeland protection…ie the police, Antifa will take over. If you think the police are bad you ain’t seen nothin yet! The UN is anti American. It has been consumed by the likes of Iran, Seria, China and Saudi Arabia. All radical, all anti American. Of course they want to support the Democrats narrative. Let’s send Nasty Nancy to Guantanamo this fall. Send George Soros to a Siberian prison. Vote Trump/Pence this fall and let’s take back the House and Senate! MAGA 2020!

  4. Hey UN. DROP DEAD! You don’t like what I said? Come and get me, I will welcome you with open strong ARMS! You will be dead on arrival! You deserve to be dead-all of you! You will NOT make me agree with your corrupt attitude, talk or tactics. I think most real patriots would kill you in an instant. We eo NOT have to take y0ur propaganda and that’s the truth!

  5. The UN has no right to tell our nation what we can or can not do as they are not our boss, nor do they pay our taxes and bills to run this nation. They depend on us for them to function. I say kick them out of our country and stop giving them our tax dollars.

  6. The UN needs to leave the US and go wherever it wants to move to, it’s a worthless organization as far as the US is concerned. Goodbye and good riddance!

  7. This is how communism works. Eliminate any and all national identity, remove key figures ability to govern through revolts, discourage national historical education, destroy infrastructural systems and first responder systems that are actually secondary defense forces behind national defenses.
    Disarm the populace to ensure compliance controls, and create laws or by laws that prohibit a checks and balances system from operating.
    With that, they begin to remove rights of property from individuals and corporations by vandalizing, looting, burning them out, and delivering class identifications with cancerous by laws / laws to further prevent a “Capitalist” free market.
    The ruling class is made exempt from regime laws and is given immunity to prosecution by the new regime or its people.
    Labor is derived from the most uneducated in the self sustaining states needs. Even Stalin saw that the “Self sustaining state” failed.
    What I’m writing about is what is going on right now. This comes straight from the Communist Manifesto and what they’re trying to do to our country with these protest movements. It’s straight from the 1917 Red October Bolshevik Revolution that turned Russia into a communist state in the snap of the fingers practically overnight.
    Resist these clowns! Don’t let them remove statues, defund police, or create interim systems to replace lawful authority. It is not peaceful protest! This is an agenda that will lead us into a full on civil war! Some of us won’t accept this new system attempting to be implemented.
    Question how these groups are being inspired by potential threat terror cells around the globe ( Al Qaeda-ISIS-Taliban- Communist patties- foreign immigrants wanting [immigration revenge]- internal homegrown terror regimes), that have wanted to dismantle our Constitution and create an atmosphere of solidified disruption to distract the real agendas at hand!
    Derek Chauvin needs prosecuted, the Officers in Atlanta Rolfe and Brosnan we’re justified in their actions by any handbook. Now Atlanta is losing its security on the streets. Those Officers faced administrative actions before an investigation could even begin let alone be processed. It speaks volumes for the Mayor of Atlanta as “ Deciding with Prejudice”, and as a result has shown Officers wont back her when she won’t back them!
    See how it works? Save our nation and get rid of all of this bad once and for all.
    Reformation should also streamline protocols for politicians that do not support standard operating procedures, policies, and laws in place to protect the people contributing their public services in the interest of societal needs.
    “No More Talk, No More Tolerances”.. end these communist regimes / terror ground immediately! Preserve national history and identity! Hold politicians accountable de’ facto for prejudicial violations of due process, and let’s clean this mess up now before it’s too late!
    Atlanta and Seattle better figure it out sooner than later!
    Level the U.N. and tell them to set up in China. We don’t need them!

  8. I WANT EVERY DOLLAR BACK THAT WAS PAID TO THE UN. THEY J HAVE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF THE US FOR DECADES. Get out of the US. You’ve made a mess of it by your presence and bullshit.

  9. The UN World Council of Fascist Dictators finally got their rebuke for their evil lies and their satanic plans for a One World Demonic Government. The UN in fact fund these anarchist terrorists so they can establish a world government for the coming Antichrist ruler to preside in one day soon.

  10. Evil prospers where Good men do nothing! The very idea that the UN was ever conceived should be obvious the intent is to be a world ruler, under a “New World Order” and world government,.. citizenship of this one world government will not have the rights guaranteed to them that our Constitution has provided us. Our Creator had very good reason for destroying the Tower of Babel…
