Only a few hours after it was uploaded, Antifa: Rise of the Black Flags, a documentary published by Citizens Journalism Network was censored by YouTube and Vimeo hours after it was uploaded.
The documentary chronicles the rise of the far-left militant group, Antifa, which politicians like Joe Biden have dismissed as “just an idea,” delving into the group’s rise to prominence following the election of Donald Trump and its impact on politics in the United States. The documentary sheds light on the short-lived Antifa “autonomous zone” in Seattle and the group’s ties to terror-designated militant organizations in Syria.
The documentary features an overview of Antifa by conservative firebrand Jack Posobiec, and features interviews with journalists, activists, and others familiar with the far-left movement, including Raheem Kassam, David Reaboi, and The Post Millennial’s own Libby Emmons.
The video was taken down from YouTube and Vimeo just hours after it went live on Saturday night, which informed its producers that the video was removed for violating the sites’ guidelines.
A trailer of Antifa remains available to watch on YouTube. See it below.
“You cannot upload videos that depict extreme violence,” Vimeo stated.
Jack Posobiec told the Post Millennial, “Social media companies will do anything to shut down serious discussion of Antifa. There are voices from all across the political spectrum in this, as well as former Antifa members. All of the clips we use are from news broadcasts and verified sources, there is nothing extreme. Most can be found right on YouTube on much bigger channels hosted without even a strike. This is being done to interfere in the election and hide information from the American people.”
To not be completely stifled, the producers of the documentary are uploading to many different platforms to allow anyone to see it.
Antifa Rioter Yells at NYPD "I Hope All Your Children Get Raped and Killed"
Despite all efforts by Democrats to have us believe Antifa is a “myth,” violent leftist radicals are continuing to riot and cause destruction across the country.
Over the weekend, a kind, tolerant Antifa “demonstrator” was caught on camera in New York City yelling at a group of police officers, “I hope all your children get raped and killed.”

As reported in the Post Millenial:
The pinked-haired protesters comments drew gasps from other protesters who appeared to be upset by the vitriol of the woman’s statement. One person in the crowd can be heard repeatedly shouting “hey” after she made the comment, while another appeared to cover her mouth in disbelief.
“You’re a f*cking disgrace to society,” the pink-haired protester continued before the video cut off. She appeared to be walking away from the scene as the footage ends.
Violent protests have once again erupted in many of America’s major cities, including New York City, following the shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. by police in Philadelphia. Wallace was caught on video waving a knife and approaching police officers before the 27-year-old was shot dead.
Since then, New York City has experienced rioting as looters attacked businesses and caused property damage in Brooklyn, FOX News reports. Police cruisers have also been reported to have sustained damage, garbage cans have been set on fire, and a number of officers were injured as a rioter attempted to drive a sedan through a group of officers. Protesters could be heard yelling “burn the precinct to the ground, every city, every town!” Police arrested at least 30 people.
We can only hope that serious reform takes place in the education system so that the U.S. does not continue to churn out Marxist radicals who seek to systematically destroy the very place that provides them with endless opportunity and freedom.
Antifa supporter leads Portland mayoral race
The leading candidate of the Portland mayoral race, Sarah Iannarone, is a supporter of Antifa.
And considering Portland’s record of extreme unrest over the last few months, it seems quite fitting.
Iannarone has a lead over incumbent Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler 41 percent to 30 percent, according to a poll commissioned by the Portland Business Alliance, local paper Willamette Week reported on Monday.
Her lead is well outside the poll’s four-percentage-point margin of error, the Daily Caller reports. The poll also found that 16 percent of voters plan to support a write-in candidate and an additional 13 percent remain undecided.
Current mayor Ted Wheeler’s popularity has plummeted immensely since the first round of voting in May, when he won just under 50 percent of the vote, forcing a runoff between the two candidates.
Controversially, Iannarone is an open supporter of Antifa, a decentralized, far-left movement whose members have lashed out and unleashed violence in cities across the country in recent months.
“To those who say Antifa are violent thugs: I am not a violent thug and I am Antifa,” Iannarone wrote in a January 2019 tweet.
“I am Antifa because the Red Hats are coming after brown & black people, after Jews, after queer & trans people, and more. They are coming after our democracy,” she continued.
Iannarone’s campaign manager, a left-wing activist named Gregory McKelvey, led protestors in shutting down a Portland highway following the 2016 election, the Willamette Week reported, via the Daily Caller.
Iannarone has expressed support for the nightly unrest in the city, which has often turned into violent riots.
“My daughter was in the streets last night driven by anti-racist conviction. She is not an agitator nor an opportunist and she should not fear for her safety at the hands of Portland police,” she wrote in a May 31 tweet.
“Protests will continue in our city and across the country until our leaders address the problems racism, police brutality, and white supremacy undergirding our society,” she added in an accompanying statement.
Iannarone’s platform includes a “Housing for All” plan, as well as declaring a “climate emergency” and diverting funds from the city’s police department into social services.
If Iannarone wins the mayoral race, the city of Portland faces a future of even more unrest and violence.
But, only time will tell.
