(Turning Point USA) Last year, I wrote a book about the history of Antifa titled “Antifa: Stories from Inside the Black Bloc.”It occurred to me that the history of Antifa is misunderstood by a majority of Americans. Many people think that Antifa spontaneously formed just a few years ago during the COVID-19 pandemic, or in response to so-called racial injustice cases like George Floyd. Some don’t even recall the outrage and chaos that ensued on the streets of Washington D.C. on Inauguration Day when President Trump was sworn into office back in 2016.But the history of anarcho-socialist terrorism in this country can date back over a hundred years. I wrote this book about the modern Antifa and communist movement in America because it is not being taught to today’s generation. The real history of communism, and it’s many dangers, is not being taught in schools, nor is it being shown in pop culture by Hollywood.
What many don’t know is that the seeds of the present-day Antifa movement can be traced all the way back to 1930’s Germany. The organization “Antifaschistische Aktion” was founded by a Soviet agent named Ernst Thalmann. To no surprise, Thalmann was a communist. ButThe True History of Antifa – TPUSA LIVE
