There are brand new fake antifa accounts spreading disinformation and threats of violence, and people are responding to them with *actual* threats of violence against antifa. Happy Fourth of July...?

my latest for @NatObserver:
One of the new fake antifa accounts (ANTIFA__NY) has already been suspended.

ANTIFA_DC is still active. It's linked to a fake Fox News account; they've been feeding off of each other, and both have the same URL in their profiles. 1/
Here's where it gets meta. The fake Fox News account is sharing screenshots meant to look like Fox News articles, but they're both fake, as is the AOC tweet.

Then, the fake antifa account started quote-tweeting the fake Fox News account sharing fake Fox News articles. 2/
The fake ANTIFA__NY account, which was active as of a few hours ago but is now gone, also engaged with the fake Fox News account.

Notably, it also engaged extensively with Jack Posobiec. 3/
As you can see here, fake antifa account ANTIFA__NY only followed 5 accounts:
-2 are fake antifa accounts
-1 is the fake Fox News account
-1 is Jack Posobiec

The fake antifa account ANTIFA_DC also engaged with Jack Posobiec, and vice versa. John Cardillo also jumped in on this one.

Yes, the fake #antifa accounts are trolls. But they’re provoking real threats of violence. Here, someone suggests antifa should get the “Fields treatment” — referring to James Fields Jr., who murdered anti-racist activist Heather Heyer & injured dozens more in Charlottesville. 6/
