Antifa’s actions over the last week will cost many tens of thousands of black lives over the next five years.
With their arson and looting of minority owned US businesses, tens of thousands of Americans trying to make a better life will now suffer such economic losses they may never get back to where they were just a week ago.
Now add in the other hundreds of thousands of neighborhood residents who relied on these businesses for employment, groceries and other necessities and the situation in these communities is dire.
While Sephoria and Gucci on 5th Avenue get the headlines in the papers for looting, many of the devastated businesses in The Bronx and Brooklyn operated on such thin margins there was no room in the budget for insurance. The owners may have lost everything and that’s what really matters.
These communities can also look to the democrats and the ineffective policing policies of Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo for allowing the rampage of their neighborhoods to continue for many days. Where are the comments of Congressional democratic leadership condemning the violence? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, New York Senator Chuck Schumer have been very quiet during this insurrection.
The Department of Justice — with the FBI — needs to eradicate Antifa and its nefarious backers. Ranging from international financiers to former Democratic National Committee members along with long-time members of the permanent government need to be brought to justice for treason charges.

As the New York Police Department’s Deputy Police Commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism John Miller said on Sunday, the department had evidence that the mayhem is organized and planned down to specific targets with agents provocateur.
“We believe that a significant amount of people who came here from out of the area who have come here as well as the advance preparation, having advance scouts, the use of encrypted information, having resupply routes for things such as gasoline and accelerants as well as rocks and bottles, the raising of bail, the placing of medics,” Miller said.
“Taken together, [this] is a strong indicator that they plan to act with disorder, property damage, violence, and violent encounters with police before the first demonstration and or before the first arrest,” Miller added.
As I have written earlier this week, Black Lives Matter was used by these nefarious groups as a backdrop for anarchy and political upheaval. Innocent protestors were infiltrated by paid mercenaries and common criminals.
As we approach D-Day on June 6th, NYC needs to take back the streets at night. Look Saks Fifth Avenue’s flagship store is covered in barbed wire just like Omaha Beach was.
