Security Firm Claims Antifa Infiltrated Trump Protesters Who Stormed the Capitol
Trump supporters say that Antifa members disguised as one of them infiltrated the protesters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
A retired military officer told The Washington Times that the firm XRVision used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia Antifa members to two men inside the Senate.
The source provided the photo match to The Times.
One has a tattoo that indicates he is a Stalinist sympathizer. Antifa promotes anarchy through violence and wants the end of America in favor of a Stalinist-state. “No more USA at all” is a protest chant.
XRVision also has identified another man who, while not known to have Antifa links, is someone who shows up at climate and Black Lives Matter protests in the West.
Born in Portland, Ore., Antifa has mounted a year of violence in that city. The mayor said this week that Antifa is trying to destroy the town and called for tougher police measures.
Antifa, which is loosely organized nationwide, exports warriors to other towns.
Before the Nov. 4 election, an Antifa chapter sent out on social media a reminder for members to disguise themselves as Trump supporters by wearing the distinctive red Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.
“On Nov. 4 don’t forget to disguise yourselves as patriots/Trump supporters. Wear MAGA hats. USA flags. A convincing police uniform is even better. This way police and patriots responding to us won’t know who their enemies are and onlookers and the media will think there are Trump supporters rioting so it’s harder to turn popular opinion against us.”
POLICE OFFICER SHOOTS WOMAN IN THE NECK AT CAPITOL BUILDING
A San Diego television station is identifying the woman killed Wednesday afternoon inside the U.S. Capitol as Ashley Babbitt. KUSI-TV says they spoke with her husband, confirming the identity.
He told the station she was a 14-year veteran of the Air Force and worked high-level security in the service. He also said she was an avid supporter of President Trump, but did not indicate why she was inside the building.
U.S. Capitol Police are investigating, and have not indicated the circumstances of the death or said who they think shot her.
