Study: 9 In 10 Antifa Protesters Still Living In Mom's Basement
A new study shows that over 90 percent of the anti-fascist protestors in Europe are still living in their mother's basement.
Heat Street reports that the study found that 92 percent of the protesters at these anti-fascist rallies that are believed to have committed violence still live with their parents. Heat Street also notes the following findings from the study:
- 84% are male
- 72% are aged 18-29
- 90% are single
- 34% are unemployed
These "Antifa" protesters have been behind the violent protests that occurred on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration and the riots that occurred in U.C. Berkeley when Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopolous was scheduled to speak. In fact, it seems that the violence didn't start until the "Antifa" thugs appeared, according to International Business Times.
Per IBT, the "Antifa" movement began during the rise of fascism in the 1930s and has been on the rise recently since they perceive Trump as a fascist. Anifa New York City organizers described themselves as as a combination of "radical left-wing and anarchist politics, revulsion at racists, sexists, homophobes, anti-Semites, and Islamophobes, with the international anti-fascist culture of taking the streets and physically confronting the brownshirts of white supremacy, whoever they may be."
They also essentially excused violence by stating, "If Trump tries to register Muslims and engage in mass deportations, a Change.org petition is not going to stop it."
The notion that Trump will attempt a Muslim registry is fake news, and Trump has backed away from his previous support for mass deportations. But given that these "Antifa" protesters likely live in their mothers' basements, it's no surprise that they resort to violence over engaging in basic facts.
