Now Magazine portrays Antifa thugs as “victims” of assault

David MenziesMission Specialist

Toronto’s bible for social justice warriors, Now Magazine, is at it again, this time in an article which depicts thuggish members of the Left as victims of so-called far-right extremism.

I chuckled at the unintentional humour found in a story entitled, “Toronto police conduct questioned after they try to pull the plug on rally against Islamophobia.”

Among other things, they reference a June 3rd rally at Toronto’s City Hall involving about 100 people who were targeting “anti-Muslim activities carried out by far-right activists in Toronto and elsewhere in Canada”.

Yes, anti-Muslim activities is how they describe those Canadians that are against the odious anti-freedom of speech motion known as M-103, a group which includes Muslims.

But things get really goofy when Sarah Ali who is with the Organizing Committee Against Islamophobia, said:

“[Police] have been performing an escorting role for these [far-right] groups, often… refusing to arrest people who commit assaults.”

She must be delusional because the people committing assaults at Toronto City Hall are actually on the left, not the right.

Watch as I share some of the abuse we at The Rebel have encountered when trying to cover these events.

Without a police presence, Antifa would’ve undoubtedly ramped up their violence.

The bottom line is the loony leftists Now Magazine is portraying as the victims of assault, are actually the hooligans that are carrying out those assaults.

I have yet to hear or see the MSM use the word ‘ANTIFA’…which is weird…considering they have their own Flags & Website…how hard is that to figure out?

They Do say…‘Counter-Protesters’…after they disparage the FREE SPEECH Demonstrators…or Right Activists…

It would not surprise me if that magazine gets some sort of government paid subsidy.

What I packed to participate in the March was, sunscreen; water; granola bar; apple; Canadian flags; phone and a jacket.

Canadian Mongrel, I have been referring them by that succinct name for a few months now, the useful idiots don’t find it funny….but, I sure do, and, my informal poll at social engagements confirm there are a lot of folks who agree with what I call ANTIFA.
I saw the Feral Violent Socialists on June 3, masked thugs….they couldn’t get close enough to our peaceful march to attack us, but, they did look primed! If their parents only knew how their sons and daughters are ready to break laws and assault people. The money they give their freeloading children is being spent on weapons; paint; pepper spray; expensive video equipment to film themselves and protective fighting gear! Sickening!

Yup, this is what happens when we become “tolerant” of everybody’s lunatical bullshit!! …everything is suddenly backwards.
There is only one cure for this lunacy – eradication.
I suppose this same rag promotes the acceptance & care of cockroaches, & mosquitoes or maybe malaria & cancer?

They know they haven’t got a leg to stand on. They’re just trying to confuse the issue.

(Feral Violent Socialists)

I love that handle, feral, for the regressives Tammy. I couldn’t stop laughing. Most descriptive term ever.

David Menzies, thanks for the report. NOW magazine employ writers who are sympathizers of ANTIFA thugs (Feral Violent Socialists).

Rebels, how about we flood the magazine with our contempt of the dishonest reporting found in this rag!! Letters to the Editor can be e-mailed to letters@nowtoronto.com
