In Philly, an antifa mob approached a couple of Marines they assumed were Proud Boys attending the “We the People” rally (which was one of the craziest misunderstandings in American history). The Marines had no idea who Proud Boys are and responded, “We are Marines.” This led to a “fuck him up” chant and the mob attacked. Marines Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres were swarmed by antifa screaming “wetback” and “spic” at the hispanic servicemen. This is who antifa is. It’s not about “smashing racism” or “bashing the fash.” It’s about “No borders. No walls. No USA at all.”
Antifa members Thomas Massey and Tom Keenan (above) are facing assault and conspiracy charges and appeared in court on Thursday.
An excerpt from PhillyMag,
According to the Marines’ testimony, they were touring historical landmarks near Front and Chestnut streets when suspect Thomas Keenan approached them. Godinez testified that Keenan asked them “Are you proud?,” to which Godinez remembers responding “We are Marines.” Torres said that he remembers Keenan asking “Are you Proud Boys?,” an allusion to one of the alt-right groups behind the rally, and one that Torres said he didn’t understand. “I didn’t know what Proud Boys meant,” he said.
On the stand, Godinez said that he was “bewildered” by being called a white supremacist and immediately cried out, “I’m Mexican!” After that, as the attack continued, both men said that members of the group, including Keenan, repeatedly used ethnic slurs, including “spic” and “wetback,” against the Marines. (There was no testimony that Massey used any such language).
Kind of reminds us of when they kept calling that black ICE agent the n-word (at 0:15)
