Antifa, a militant-anarchist group, has taken to the streets to burn cities, attack police and anyone who opposes their thinking.
Project Veritas, a group working to investigate and expose corruption and injustice, infiltrated Rose City Antifa.
“So, currently I am a prospect for Rose City Antifa and I am about halfway through the prospecting process to become a full-fledged member of Antifa,” the PV undercover journalist said.
“They reached out to me through proton mail and we went back and forth and there was an interview set to meet up in Portland. So, to verify that I was me, they had me wear a white shirt and have a water bottle and show up at a Starbucks where a person was going to I.D. me and approach me and asked who I was. And I told them and I followed them to the destination where the interview was gonna be held.”
“There, we went to a place called Imperial. They were getting this tradecraft from someone else, someone with much more experience, someone who did this for a living. Caroline, which is the founder of RCA, moved to Sweden with her husband, who is a dual citizen. So, there’s a back and forth with the European connection.”
The meetings for prospective members were all done very secretly, the journalist explained. And Rose City Antifa did so by holding meetings in businesses outside of their hours of operation. For security, phones are placed in a separate room with fans to ensure no sound is picked up.
One recruiter tells the group in PV’s exclusive footage that the group’s goal “is to get out there and do dangerous things as safely as possible.”
Another, in a separate clip, tells recruits, “Practice things like an eye gouge, it takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes.”
“They do not hesitate to either push back or incite some kind of violence. In our classes and in our meetings before we do any sort of demonstration or black block, we talk about weapons detail and what we carry and what we should have,” said PV’s undercover reporter, who added that ‘black blocking’ is “a tactic in which individuals conceal their identity to look uniform so that no one can be identified in an act of a crime.”
“With RCA it seems much more structure, almost like a company or like a business. So, I feel like there is some type of outside funding, influence, or resources being used.”
The PV journalist has since “retired” from RCA. The expose’ is now going viral on social media and the hashtag “#EXPOSEANTIFA” is trending.
