A man who is apparently known as an ANTIFA ‘commander’ was arrested for riot activities over the weekend, and reportedly was caught carrying a flamethrower and smoke grenades to what he claimed would be a peaceful protest.
Matthew Banta, 23, is purportedly known as “Commander Red” to ANTIFA militants active in the Green Baay area. He was charged last month with pointing a loaded long gun at a police officer, and later “biting and kicking” the cop. As a condition of his $10,000 bond on the charges, he was banned from possessing weapons.
This didn’t stop Banta from bringing devices polices have described as a “flamethrower” and smoke grenades to a protest event in Green Bay over the weekend.
The Green Bay Police were reportedly called, with a community member reporting “a whole bunch of white people with sticks, baseball bats and helmets headed… towards the police.” A responding officer would go on to confront a heavily armed group of ANTIFA militants, including Banta. The group attempted to flee from the responding officer, but Banta was apprehended. The ANTIFA “Commander Red” went on to play victim, with the police officer stating that Banta “dropped into the fetal position and began crying.”
Banta claimed that he was merely attending a peaceful protest, ignoring that he had been barred from possessing weapons as a condition of his existing bond. He appeared in a court on new charges of felony bail jumping and obstructing a police officer on Monday.
Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith has described Banta as an out-of-town agitator. “It’s worrisome when people associated with Antifa come here to Green Bay from out of town for the purpose of protesting here or for the purposes of committing violent acts,” said the Chief.
Despite a violation of his existing bail, Banta was granted a new $2,500 bond on the two new charges Monday. Perhaps the feared ANTIFA “Commander Red” will go for a third strike with another riot crime.
SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson
Why is he still teaching?
A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.
