Teen Vogue Magazine Hails Antifa: A Group That ‘aspires toward creating a better world’

If you’re a millennial, you probably spent many of your teen years reading Teen Vogue to get dating advice, fashion tips, and the hottest gossip about your favorite celebrities. If you picked up the magazine in 2020, however, you would quickly realize that the publication has entirely changed.

This week, in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd, Teen Vogue latched on to President Donald Trump’s condemnation of Antifa, a violent left-wing extremist group that glorifies the doctrine of communists, and published a piece hailing the group as one that “aspires toward creating a better world.”

Here’s how a historian described the group to Teen Vogue: “I would say Antifa is a pan-radical-left politic, or activity of militant self-defense against the far right. It is a specific tendency, within a broader historical anti-fascist movement that goes back a century, that focuses on pan-left politics and a direct action strategic or tactical emphasis on fighting the far right.”

The historian continued, “They don’t think that we should turn to the police or the state to stop neo-Nazi or far-right organizing; instead they advocate popular opposition and, if necessary, a militant response.”

In her later remarks, she described to the magazine that the group was fighting racism and compared their efforts to fighting Nazis and Hitler in World War II.

Andy Ngo, one of the only journalists who’s covered Antifa’s growing violence in our country extensively, called the story “Agitprop” on Twitter Monday referring to Soviet-era communist propaganda.

In 2019, Ngo was brutally assaulted by Antifa militants in Portland. The injuries Ngo sustained caused severe brain injuries. One of Antifa’s strongest weapons against Ngo was a milkshake laced with fast-drying cement, which covered his face in shocking images that followed the attack.

In a recent piece for The Spectator, Ngo highlighted Antifa’s role in recent protests that have erupted across the country, noting that many are ‘underestimating’ the group’s abilities.

“Media, politicians, the public — all of us — have underestimated the training and capability of left-wing extremists, who are united in purpose,” Ngo wrote in the article. “All the parts of rioting serve a purpose. Looting and fires destroy local economies. Riots can overwhelm the police and even the military. All of this leads to a destabilized state. America is brave and beautiful. She is not invincible.”

As with Ngo, Antifa regularly follows and harrases journalists. In D.C. Sunday night, a Daily Caller reporter Matthew Miller was confronted and threatened by the militants. “Antifa outed me to a mob of looters tonight,” he wrote on Twitter. “I sprinted 6 blocks to safety after being surrounded and threatened by 15-20 “tough guys”. This is footage of the guy telling me he was about to dox me if I didnt leave. I ignored him and he shouted out who I work for.”

Antifa’s online networks show that they’ve been active at these protests. In recent days, this reporter has found names and social media accounts of several journalists reporting on the frontlines being monitored by Antifa and has notified the journalists of the findings to protect their safety.

The President has indicated in recent days that he’s inching closer to designating the group a terrorist organization. In a statement on Sunday, Attorney General William Barr said that many peaceful protests across the country had been “hijacked” by extremists groups and that Federal law enforcement will take action against “violent radical agitators.” “The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly,” Barr said.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
