DNC Funding Antifa Terrorists


Antifa Shares a Fundraising Platform With the DNC

Antifa, like the Democrat Party, is built on the model of nonprofit support infrastructure.

In the party, that means everything except the most direct campaign activities are outsourced to networks of nonprofits that use tax-deductible donations for everything from voter registration and outreach, media and messaging, to funding election infrastructure ‘Zuckerbucks’ style.

Unlike its Black Lives Matter allies, the Antifa networks aren’t funded by a single nonprofit. Antifa’s illegal activities and the radical tendencies of its participants, many of whom are involved in a variety of radical groups, some of them domestic terrorist organizations, makes that a non-starter. However, unlike conservative groups which have been ‘debanked’ from Big Tech fundraising platforms, Antifa gains support through leftist 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) groups which includes fundraising platforms, bail funds, street medics and promotional media organizations.

One of the worst examples also operates arm in arm with the Democratic Party.

The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund raises money through crowdfunding platforms like GoFundMePatreon and 

FundRazr despite clear bans on raising money for illegal or criminal activity.

But its primary fundraising platform is also utilized by the Democratic National Committee.

Connected by a shortlink titled ‘DefendAntifa’, the International Anti-Fascist Defene Fund, its fundraising page flying the Antifa flag and bearing a banner “Free All Antifa Prisoners” describes itself as providing “direct, immediate support to anti-fascists” including medical bills, legal defense and an “antifa prisoner fund”, uses the Action Network: a leftist 501(c)(4) and (c)(3).

The Action Network boasts that “after three months of using Action Network the DNC shattered all sorts of fundraising records.” The Antifa defense fund, which claims to have dispensed $75,000 in three years, is apparently also doing well with the overlapping DNC donor base.

What is the Antifa defense fund raising money for?

While the Action Network home page shows off a picture of Biden to promote its DNC fundraising, the International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund’s blog features a story about helping out during the Biden inauguration riots featuring of black masked antifa thugs bearing a banner featuring an AK-47 and the message, “We don’t want Biden, we want revenge.”

The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund set up a donation page for the sole Antifa arrestee who took a plea deal to skip prison who was fined nearly $50K in property damages, likely committed in Portland during the Biden inauguration when Antifa smashed in the DNC windows and vandalized the building with the anarchist ‘A’. Police had seized Molotov cocktails, knives, batons, chemical spray and a crowbar on sight.

Is a fundraising platform used by the DNC also raising money for antifa rioters smashing Democrat offices? If so it would be one of many examples of Democrats incubating the leftist radicals who are destroying their party and the country.

The Action Network was set up by Senator John Kerry’s digital director during the Occupy Wall Street riots, is emblematic of the relationship between the Democrat establishment and the most extreme elements of the Left.

Beyond the DNC, the Action Network is the fundraising platform for the AFL-CIO, Black Lives Matter, the Women’s March, the DSA and Communist Party USA. The spectrum reflects the growing extremism that the Democrats have become complicit in and even directly support.

One post on the Antifa defense fund’s blog is titled, “Found Out” and features a photo of a man’s bloody head while raising money for the perpetrators.

Raising money to finance illegal activity is illegal for anyone - so why do the rules not apply to the Left?
