Antifa at Gettysburg

Great show, but I wish the media would say the obvious: we do know in fact that Antifa never conforms to this sort of online behavior. This is not Antifa modus operandi. You spent a minute reporting that there were clues this might be a hoax, but the most obvious one goes unsaid. Why can’t you say that Antifa, whatever you think of the movement, does not work this way. They don’t put out posters to invite the organization to picnic and burn flags at national monuments. They aren’t even an organization. That seems pertinent to the reporting, because Antifa is slandered by this sort of politics. That seems to me like it belongs in the story, because people think Antifa is equivalent to armed militias and racist groups on the right. I agree with the local official who said that the far right already looks idiotic without such trolling. But you have left in place the Antifa straw man. Why not report also on what Antifa is and isn’t, so people can have a reasonable sense of what anti-fascist politics means and how it works? Thanks.

Typical media reporting on partial phrases

Countless times this podcast has played part of a phrase to try and spin a narrative. This is reckless and attempts to force a belief. It is disgusting that this behavior continues.
