Quillette Attacked by ANTIFA/Journo Mob After Publishing Report Exposing ANTIFA/Journo Mobs

Liberal journalists do not want the masses to understand their connections to this domestic terror group.

Published

After Quilette published an article last month by a researcher who tracked the connections between liberal journalists and ANTIFA domestic terrorists, the publication is being targeted by a mob of journalists and ANTIFA members working in tandem.

The article, “It’s Not Your Imagination: The Journalists Writing About Antifa Are Often Their Cheerleaders,” written by online extremism researcher Eoin Lenihan documented the extensive connections between left-wing domestic terrorists and certain prominent journalists.

This is what he found:

We created a data set of 58,254 Antifa or Antifa-associated Twitter accounts based on the follows of 16 verified Antifa seed accounts. Using a software tool that analyzed the number and nature of connections associated with each individual account, we winnowed the 58,254 Antifa or Antifa-associated Twitter accounts down to 962 accounts. This represents a core group of Twitter users who are connected in overlapping ways to the most influential and widely followed Antifa figures. Of these 962 accounts, 22 were found to be verified—of which 15 were journalists who work regularly with national-level news outlets.

It should be stressed that a journalist’s close social-media engagement with any particular group should not be seen as incriminating per se. Many journalists follow—and even interact with—all manner of figures online, either out of personal curiosity, professional interest, or even as a means of developing sources. In identifying this group of 15 journalists whose engagement with Antifa is especially intense, our goal was not to accuse them of bias out of hand, but rather to identify them for further study, so as to determine if there was any overall correlation between the level of their online engagement with Antifa and the manner by which these journalists treated Antifa in their published journalism.

That correlation turned out to be quite pronounced: Of all 15 verified national-level journalists in our subset, we couldn’t find a single article, by any of them, that was markedly critical of Antifa in any way. In all cases, their work in this area consisted primarily of downplaying Antifa violence while advancing Antifa talking points, and in some cases quoting Antifa extremists as if they were impartial experts.

For his ground-breaking work, Lenihan was targeted by ANTIFA trolls and then was eventually booted from Twitter in an effort to suppress the truth about these reporters’ affiliations.

Because Quillette published this research, the independent media outlet is now being targeted by left-wing activists such as Jared Holt of Right Wing Watch who are attempting to cast doubt on the findings.

Qullette editor-in-chief Claire Lehmann is getting pilloried by a digital lynch mob, activated by ANTIFA-sympathetic journalists, in a display that lends even more credence to Lenihan’s work:

Journalists and ANTIFA-sympathetic activists, whose posts are virtually indisguishable from one another, took turns harassing Lehmann while providing no direct evidence to refute Lenihan’s conclusions:

The jackals are out in full force for Quillette, but the publication is standing by the work that the ANTIFA thugs and their reporter allies desperately want to suppress.

Criminal Charges Against 59 Portland Rioters Dropped by Multnomah County Prosecutors

Giving ANTIFA a free pass.

Published

on

An analysis of court and police records by Portland’s KGW8 has revealed that Multnomah prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against 59 individuals arrested for crimes during the city’s nightly destructive riots. More than 400 people have been arrested and charged for rioting offenses since ANTIFA-linked street criminals began staging destructive nightly riots in the liberal city, going so far as to attack a federal courthouse with improvised mortars and to riot in the streets armed with improvised explosive devices.

The sum of dropped cases is almost 15% of total arrests made during the nightly riots.

Nine of the criminal cases dropped by Multnomah County prosecutors had included felony charges, including felony riot, arson, and theft. The other fifty cases involve misdemeanor rioting offenses, such as disorderly conduct, interfering with a police officer, and resisting arrest.

At least one rioter is described as having deployed a molotov cocktail device in the street riots, bragging of his alleged criminal act in discussions with other ANTIFA operatives. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office dropped the case against the alleged arsonist after a grand jury declined to return an indictment.

Liberal Democratic Portland city officials continue to urge the authorities to treat the violent ANTIFA rioters with kid gloves, calling for no more than ‘targeted arrests’ to be made as the gang ransacks buildings, statues, and stages planned attacks on police. The Portland police have largely been called off by city authorities, leaving federal police officers to protect infrastructure such as the Hatfield Federal Courthouse without city support.

As city officials such as the liberal county prosecutors and Mayor Ted Wheeler openly flout the free pass they’re handing to ANTIFA to attack federal buildings, riot, and destroy property, the street criminals will likely receive the message that they’ll be let off easy if they can avoid being arrested for serious crimes that can’t be ignored.
