In an interview with Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham on Monday night, former Antifa member Gabriel Nadales continued his crusade to shed light on the anarchist group that is currently instigating violence and destruction in the name of George Floyd. Nadales, who now writes for Campus Reform, told Ingraham that it is a complete fiction that Antifa actually exists to confront fascism in the United States. That, he said, is just a cover for them to violently oppose any ideology to the right of their radical left-wing, socialist agenda.
Nadales said that he is continually dismayed to see universities allow the group to operate openly despite their clear, destructive mission.
“Let me just say this very clear,” Nadales said. “We don’t allow ISIS to recruit on college campuses and we should not allow Antifa to do that either.”
Nadales said that politicians and celebrities pretending as though the group’s “anti-fascism” moniker can be taken seriously ought to do some research.
“Antifa pretends to be about fighting fascism, but then they define fascism as basically anything that does not conform with their radical leftist agenda; which goes back to exactly what President Trump is doing,” he said. “I’m incredibly happy that he’s finally declared Antifa a domestic terrorist organization because that really helps fight against this false narrative that Antifa is fighting anything but for their failed leftist socialist ideology.”
This is far from the first time Nadales has spoken out vehemently against his former comrades. In many ways, he has dedicated his career to helping those who want to learn more about Antifa do so with the actual facts rather than the propaganda emanating from the group and its admirers. In an interview with The Daily Signal last year, Nadales expounded on why he ultimately decided to leave the group.
“The reason I started questioning my beliefs was in my senior year of high school. I was failing. So I remember my econ class, I was a D right there. I needed to get a D at the very least. So I started opening my economics books. First time ever for a Leftist to do that,” he said. “I just started questioning myself. I started questioning all these beliefs. And the people I started talking to about this outside of school was a lot of other members of Antifa.”
Yes, there’s nothing like a serious study of economics to show you why literally every socialist scheme on the planet is doomed to fail from jump street. And from there, you can open your eyes, look around, and see that Americans are not actually controlled and oppressed by the Big, Evil Capitalists. You can see that this is, indeed, the greatest nation to ever exist.
Alas, when you’re a failure in life and looking for someone or something to blame, rich, white capitalist pigs make for an easy scapegoat. Slap on a mask and go throw a rock through a window. It’s a hell of a lot easier than self-improvement.
