Also, I know about infiltrators and agitators. So, I keep reactions measured.
you can bet how well it went for them when they asked for my credentials.
Them: no who do you write for
Me: myself, I freelance
Them: we don't let fascists in here
Them: that means you
Me: good luck with that *waves at the protest keynote who's a friend of mine and passing by*
I explain that actually, the only thing I could have written is that some fucking children were unilaterally denying access to an event
The leader was law enforcement. They wanted journos to write the story that antifa was fucking kids denying public access.
Because it was. I didn’t have the full picture.
Any decentralized movement is prone to people using its banner for their own bullshit.
What many journos seem to not understand is that there’s antifa then there’s antifa cosplay.
Truth is hard to discern in a time of lies.
