As protests were taking place in multiple states across the U.S. Sunday night, the newly created account, @ANTIFA_US, tweeted, "Tonight's the night, Comrades," with a brown raised fist emoji and "Tonight we say 'F--- The City' and we move into the residential areas... the white hoods.... and we take what's ours ... "

This isn't the first time Twitter has taken action against fake accounts engaged in hateful conduct linked to Identity Evropa, according to the spokesperson.

A Twitter account claiming to belong to a national "antifa" organization and pushing violent rhetoric related to ongoing protests has been linked to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa, according to a Twitter spokesperson.

The spokesperson said the account violated the company's platform manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts. Twitter suspended the account after a tweet that incited violence.

Here's Trampy's chance to go after them.

They're white racists.

You think he will?

My guess is the Chief Racist Executive will take a hard pass on them.

Trump's attacks on ANTIFA are disgusting and a blatant attemp to curry favor with Nazis, Fascists, White Nationalists, the KKK and every other hate group in the country. ANTIFA is not a threat to us and never has been. When being against Fascism is a crime then call me a criminal.

Where is the FBI? Don't they have responsibility to investigate hat groups like that or is that a thing of the past under Herr Trump?

No. Words do have meanings. Facts are real.

That's like saying an electron can be a proton.

Of course, an electron and a proton are made of the same elemental particles. But a proton is not an electron. Ever.

A white supremacists is not anti fascist. By definition.

He's already got 100,000+ dead Americans under his belt.

See, now you come back to the same issue: Who is ANTIFA? Is it only the brick throwers? All the protesters? A part of them?

Do we even have evidence that the brick throwers are part of ANTIFA?

Are you suggesting the vast majority of the protests aren't peaceful?

You aren't living in the real world or a world with facts right now.

If that's the case with Identity Evropa, then Anti-Fa is in the house, the White House that is. Background info on Identity Evropa:

White nationalist leader is plotting to 'take over the GOP'

Identity Evropa is pushing its members to stealthily infiltrate Republican politics to move the party toward its agenda of banning nonwhite immigration.

You can see why Trump and Barr are mum when it comes to white supremacist domestic terrorists:

Patrick Casey, the leader of the group Identity Evropa, posted photos of his visit to Twitter. "Evropa has landed at the White House!" he tweeted.

Casey is not the only extremist to visit the Trump White House, though it is unclear if he met with any administration officials. Earlier this year, Trump met with Lionel Lebron, a far-right activist who promotes that QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that top Democrats are involved in a pedophile ring. Lebron posted a photo of the Oval Office visit to his Instagram page.

The FBI's Washington Field Office "has no intelligence indicating Antifa involvement/presence" in the violence that occurred on May 31 during the D.C.-area protests over the murder of George Floyd, according to an internal FBI situation report obtained exclusively by The Nation. That same day, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that he would designate "Antifa" a terrorist organization, even though the government has no existing authority to declare a domestic group a terrorist organization, and antifa is not an organized group.

The FBI report states that "based on CHS [Confidential Human Source] canvassing, open source/social media partner engagement, and liaison, FBI WFO has no intelligence indicating Antifa involvement/presence." The statement followed a list of violent acts like throwing bricks at police and the discovery of a backpack containing explosive materials, which were flagged by the FBI under a "Key Updates" section of the report. The FBI has been issuing such reports daily since the weekend, according to a Bureau source, who added that none of these documents contained any evidence of antifa violence.
