Campus Reform reported on an Antifa group showing up at the University of Florida on September 24, 2019 in an attempt to recruit new members.
University students were invited to a recruitment fair for leftist radical groups that was being hosted by the Civic Media Center. This event was not affiliated with UF and its mission involves providing the community “access to information and points of view that are under-reported or distorted in mainstream media.”
The center’s website states that it works with “progressive” organizations to see its mission through.
Campus Reform reported on how they approached a table on the UF campus that very day, where students were receiving information about an event last Wednesday called “Radical Rush.” The event was hosted by Civic Media Center but also took place on campus.
Several people from Campus Reform were in attendance at Radical Rush Wednesday and got ahold of flyers with rhetoric attacking the police and the U.S. government. A number of flyers read, “police are part of the problem,” claiming that they kill thousands of people annually, while they tear families apart and organize “racist militias.” The same flyer sustains that “the U.S. government is already implementing the fascists’ agenda more effectively than a group like the KKK ever could.”
The Gainesville Anti-Fascist Committee handed out flyers illustrating a sketch of a fist in front of President Donald Trump’s face.
The group urges citizens to “confront people who are falling for Trump’s racist solutions,” while also calling for others to support “those who fight back against racism,” and “support targeted communities’ right to self-defense.” Another pamphlet reads “Anti-Fascism is Self-Defense.”
One student understands why Antifa is active on college campuses. “It’s no wonder why Antifa would target college campuses to spread their message,” University of Florida student Jarrod Rodriquez told Campus Reform. “America’s universities are the bastions of radical progressive indoctrination, with biased administrators fostering a climate on campus that only caters to progressivism and a swath of privileged leftist-students who have been radicalized by their professors over the years.”
Antifa will likely maintain its presence on college campuses nationwide as long as culturally leftist attitudes remain on campus.
Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
