Antifa, the abbreviation of antifascist, is the word that radical anti-Trumpers call themselves.
Antifas are the masked punks, dressed in all black, who committed violence in inauguration demonstrations in Washington, D.C., and on the U.C. Berkeley campus on the night of February 1, 2017.
Although they are the ones who attack Trump supporters, antifas have started a new meme in social media, portraying themselves as victims of duct taping.
The fake victimization began with a tweet from Beverly Hills Antifa @BevHillsAntifa on March 30, 2017, claiming that a fellow antifa in Laguna Beach was duct taped to a stop sign by “fascists”.
The only problem is the alleged duct-taped antifa is actually a man in Houston, Texas, who was duct-taped to a sign-post because he lost a bet to his friends. As reported by CBS News on March 30, 2017, “the duct-taped man, who was identified as 17-year-old Miguel Chavez,” told police “he was taped to the pole after losing a bet on Tuesday’s Rockets vs. Warriors game.”
The next day, March 31, 2017, Fifth Avenue Antifa @FifthAveAntiFa continued the fake duct-tape victimization with a tweet of another alleged antifa duct-taped by “Nazis” to a concrete trash bin:
On April 1, 2017, responding to tweeter @llivill1 who observed that the pic looks fake, Fifth Avenue Antifa insisted:
It’s not fake. Trump people literally taped him there after saying racist stuff at us.
And . . .
But we never tried true communism. This time it could work.
Trump supporters aren’t buying duct tape antifa. Here’s a sample of responses to Fifth Avenue Antifa’s tweet:
“OOH! What a cool performance art project! The dildo on his head really speaks to me!” -Artemis
“do people teach you in liberal school to call all of your enemies Nazis? Try a new argument” -Kenny Perrin
“Funny, nice try. All these pics u keep doing are transparent” -BrentD
“Nice fake propaganda.” -Squirrel_Hound 2.0
“Duct tape is more useful than I thought!” -Scott Miller
“hahahahahahaha the pussy hat resistance” -NYC 4 TRUMP
“ANTIFA sounds like the name of a laxative or an old-people nutrients drink.” -Bryan Black
That hasn’t stopped a dorky effete from Boston Antifa from believing their own lies. Here is his unintentionally funny advice to fellow antifa on how to avoid being duct-taped.
“Hello, it’s 727 with Boston Antifa. I’ve taken a little bit more time to look into the duct taping incidents that have been going on, and it is truly fucked up. We feel deeply bad for Antifa members who happen to be a victim to this. Now, things that can be done to prevent such an attack: We recommend some of the same types of defenses that we use against pepper spray, and things of that nature. So vegetable oil is something that I could recommend that you use. Does work for the skin when it comes to prevent the irritation of pepper spray. I believe that if you were to put a lot of this on parts of your clothing before you go out to a demonstration, then this could help prevent the adhesive [of duct tape] from sticking. Now, there are some other ways that you could easily stop this kind of attack, and I think maybe there are many other comrades who will chime in on this. Shaving your body hair would help, especially your arms and things of that nature. We have to do all we can because I’ve also heard some other reports that they’re going to start bringing high-powered magnets to attach to any private piercings that some of our comrades may have. This is all news to me, but is some scary stuff. So everybody, continue to be safe out there and if it be, fight back!”
We should expect oily, pierced, shaved-of-body-hair antifa commies at the next anti-Trump demonstration.
