An armed Antifa group is launching a new cell in Philadelphia that is targeting law enforcement.
The group currently hosts anti-police workshops called “Our Enemies in Blue.” The group draws inspiration from convicted murderers and calls for violence against the police, theft of goods, and armed insurrection.
Antifa websites like It’s Going Down, Sub.Media and Insurrection News have been promoting the group, which calls itself the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM).
Taking pride in the “legacy” of “Philadelphia’s rich revolutionary tradition,” RAM cites in a press release Mumia Abu Jamal, the Black Panther activist who shot and killed Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. It also cites Russell Shoats, who shot a police officer in the back five times in 1970.
Despite active calls for violence against law enforcement and armed revolution against the government, the mainstream media has been surprisingly lenient in its coverage of Antifa, depicting them as righteous crusaders against fascism, the Daily Caller reports.
