A Free Speech rally scheduled for July 6th in Washington, D.C. has been targeted by Antifa.
Members of the group are promising to act out extremely violent and carry harm to others at that rally.
Threats are much different this time, and have been escalated it in a very specific way.
An ANTIFA member named ‘Pound Your Boy’ posted on a conservative Telegram channel that: “We already have the Muriatic acid, wax, and balloons.”
According to Law Enforcement Today, these comments led the rally’s co-organizer, Enrique Tarrio, to contact the FBI and DHS, who’ve assured additional security for the event. And why was there the specificity of ingredients?
Big League Politics noted:
“According to Tarrio, the threat is especially dangerous due to the use of wax. Muriatic acid can be purchased in virtually any pool store or home improvement store and is already dangerous on its own with the ability to cause minor burns. It can quickly be washed off with water. By combining the muriatic acid with wax, it will immediately form a film similar to candle wax on the injured person’s skin.”
Tarrio also said: “We will not be intimidated with these tactics of fear and fascism. We will celebrate our First Amendment without apology.”
Unfortunately, Pound Your Boy wasn’t done. “How’s DC coming along? Cant fight if you cant see. I want to blind as many of you c— suckers as possible. A nice balloon filled with Muriatic acid, covered in wax will so do the job.”
Law Enforcement Today asks the question many want answered:
Considering threats like these, the already evidenced acts of violence and the events of this weekend in Portland, why are law enforcement agencies not taking Antifa more seriously?
These masked menaces are an absolute threat to the communities where they protest. Busted windows, burning cars, overturned newspaper machines, and more importantly, injured people are the norm when Antifa is involved.
Saturday, journalist Andy Ngo was violently attacked by Antifa in Portland, Oregon, where he was beaten, milkshaked (laced with quick-dry cement) and robbed, resulting in hospitalization.
“It starts with milk shakes, then it escalates to what happened to Andy Ngo, and now they’re threatening us with acid attacks,” Tarrio said. [Read More]
