The brutal far-left organization Antifa showed its true colors over the weekend when a video went viral showing several of the organization’s members blocking an elderly couple from crossing the street outside a college in Canada.
In the video, which sparked massive outrage online, an elderly woman with a rolling walker can be seen trying to cross a street alongside her husband as a horde of Antifa thugs repeatedly shout, “Nazi scum off our streets.” At one point, when the husband tries to reason with a female member of Antifa, she immediately shouts back, “Don’t you f***ing touch me.”

The incident unfolded outside Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario on Sunday, which was hosting an event featuring commentator Dave Rubin and founder of the right-leaning People’s Party of Canada, MP Maxime Bernier. As the video went viral, several conservative commentators expressed outrage on social media, especially over the fact people nearby did nothing to help the couple as they were being harassed.
“Imagine being a member of Antifa blocking and harassing an elderly woman using a walker & actually thinking YOU are the one fighting ‘fascism,'” said Jason Howerton of The Blaze.
“The Tolerant Left Folks. What kind of monster refuses to let an elderly couple cross the street … Antifa,” said Kyle Kashuv.
“ANTIFA threatening an elderly couple as they walk home Media is totally silent as they support ANTIFA This is the left,” said Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk.
“I’m as pissed at the white guy taking a pic/video and not helping this poor couple as I am at those antifa assholes for yelling at these poor people this way!” said Elisha Krauss.
The horrible video comes months after Quillette editor Andy Ngo suffered severe injuries, including a concussion, at the hands of an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon. The assault was the latest in a series of violent attacks on conservatives that have unfolded over the past six months in both Britain and the United States, many of which involve milkshakes. In Andy Ngo’s case, the milkshake chucked at him reportedly contained fast-drying cement, severely injuring Ngo and leaving him with a brain bleed. At the time, Ngo’s lawyer, Harmeet Dhillon, took issue with journalists who attempted to downplay the situation or even proposition themselves as Antifa apologists.
“Goodnight everyone except Antifa criminals who I plan to sue into oblivion and then sow salt into their yoga studios and avocado toast stands until nothing grows there, not even the glimmer of a violent criminal conspiracy aided by the effete impotence of a cowed city government,” Ngo’s lawyer Harmeet Dhillon tweeted at the time. “He is being admitted to the hospital overnight as a result of a brain bleed. You sick ‘journalists’ and other hacks gloating about this should be ashamed.”
The media, other than CNN’s Brian Stelter, largely remained silent after the attack, as well as the 2020 Democratic Party candidates. Prior to that, some members of the media, like CNN’s Chris Cuomo, even painted Antifa in a positive light. Cuomo famously said that they were “fighting against hate.”
“Fighting against hate matters,” said Cuomo. “I argue to you tonight, all punches are not equal morally. In the eyes of the law, yes. But in the eyes of good and evil, here’s the argument: if you’re a punk that comes to start trouble in a mask and hurt people, you’re not about any virtuous cause. You’re just somebody who’s going to be held to the standard of doing something wrong.”
