A now deleted remark posted to the the Iowa Antifa Facebook Page seemed to suggest taking violent actions against landlords in an Iowa community.
In response to an article describing an Iowa mobile home community’s decision to increase lot fees, the local Antifa group appeared to suggest committing acts of violence against the landlords in retribution.
The landlords announced a 69 per cent increase to the lot fees paid by residents of the mobile home community, then after public outcry decided to give residents an extended period of time before the fees would go into effect, theoretically giving them time to find alternate housing if they considered it too expensive.
Iowa Antifa then quoted the news article and wrote, “These landlords need a democratically-approved appointment with a guillotine.”
The post was shared widely across social media before it was eventually removed. It is not known whether it was deleted by the admins of the Facebook Page, or whether Facebook removed the apparent threat of violence as a violation of its Community Standards.
The Iowa Antifa Facebook Page has continued posting, suggesting Facebook did not take action, as the platform would usually temporarily restrict users from posting as punishment for violating the platform’s Community Standards.
On a national level, Antifa has begun to pose a serious threat to national security. Last month, the Department of Homeland Security stated that Antifa poses the same threat to the United States as the Islamic State, and added that it is more dangerous than several other well known terrorist groups.
Earlier this year Joseph Alcoff, the apparent leader of the Washington, D.C. Antifa group was arrested after allegedly assaulting a group of marines during a conservative demonstration.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Spread Pro-Murder #GUILLOTINE2020 Hashtag Following Campaign Suspension
They aren’t even hiding their true intentions anymore.
Following news of socialist hero Bernie Sanders suspending his campaign for the Democrat nomination for President, some of his most extreme supporters made their voices heard with explicit calls for violence.
As soon as the announcement was made via live-stream, a dedicated segment of his supporters began using the hashtag #GUILLOTINE2020, seemingly advocating for using guillotines to behead their political enemies.
I want Jeff Bezos head in a guillotine. Then Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Mike Bloomberg, and of course, Donald Trump.
They shut down Bernie's political revolution, the only choice is a real revolution.#GUILLOTINE2020

These sort of posts, which some on the left attempt to downplay by claiming they are nothing more than jokes, have been showing up increasingly in recent years.
Far-left “journalist” Kim Kelly, who was fired from both Vice News and NPR for her extremism, wrote in Teen Vogue about the phenomena around this sort of fetishization of the guillotine, where she acknowledges that many are not joking in their posts:
“On social media, a tone-deaf tweet or Facebook post from any wealthy CEO or out-of-touch politician is invariably met with a sea of guillotine gifs, calls for retribution against predatory billionaires, or otherwise vitriolic responses from people with guillotine in their usernames — and it feels less and less like they’re joking.”
Kelly herself admits to having a guillotine tattoo, and if her writing is any indication, she likely wouldn’t hesitate to use one on her perceived political enemies. She has previously celebrated a militant Antifa cell after one of their members attempted to firebomb an ICE facility in Tacoma, WA. Kelly also created a guide on throwing milkshakes at those she perceives to be fascists while writing for VICE. Of course, the practice of “milkshaking” got world-wide attention following the brutal beating of independent journalist Andy Ngo, which involved the throwing of milkshakes.
Needless to say, the next few months could get extremely violent as supporters of Bernie Sanders continue to let their true intentions know. As Project Veritas exposed, these far-left views are even prevalent in Sander’s campaign, with one paid staffer stating, “Guillotine the rich” while on undercover video.
Even senior Sanders staff are making their more extreme views known, with his national Press Secretary Briahna Joy Gray admitting that the “Democratic” prefix in Democrat Socialism means nothing.
On the plus side, I can drop the “Democratic” from my tweets about why Socialism is good. 😉
