The Democrat in charge of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler, believes that antifa and the destruction the radical group is causing, are “myths.”
Myths like this:
The Portland police Bureau continues to give it out announcements on the LRAD but I see federal troops shooting teargas. #blacklivesmatter #Protests #pdx #portland #oregon #blm #acab #PortlandProtest #PDXprotest #PortlandStrong #WallOfVets #wallofmoms #MomsAreHere pic.twitter.com/QDeH7fPCJh

Nadler made this claim to Twitter user “Essential Fleccas” who respectfully asked him on video if the congressman would disavow the antifa violence that has plagued Portland, Oregon for more than 60 straight nights.
Here’s how the conversation went:
EF: There’s violence across the whole country. Do you disavow the violence by antifa that’s happening in Portland right now, the violence?
Nadler: That’s a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, DC.
EF: About antifa in Portland?
EF: Sir, there’s videos everywhere online. There’s fires and riots. They’re throwing fireworks at federal officers. DHS is there. Look online. That’s crazy, Mr. Nadler.
Watch the exchange for yourself.
For those of us watching antifa violence for years, his comments seem especially clueless, but maybe the end game here to gaslight people into thinking that, to the extent there are riots, they’re not done by antifa. Maybe the claim is made in service to Democrats up for re-election, who haven’t denounced the violence and find themselves blamed for them in November.
The assertion that antifa is mythical, like a pink unicorn, will come as a huge surprise to, uh, Rose City Antifa of Portland, Oregon.
And the easiest way to avoid this issue is to run the information you're sharing past other groups you're supporting in private before you decide to post. That's it. That's all. Take five minutes, ask for the opinion of someone you trust and know is knowledgeable.

And antifa seven hills doesn’t exist, either. It’s asking it’s allies to attend similar riots, “demos,” that Jerry Nadler thinks don’t exist.
And other antifa groups in Philly, New Brunswick, Seattle, the UK, don’t exist either.
As the riots and protests have intensified across the nation in advance of the election, and considering the overt destruction of cities such as downtown Portland, it’s hard to imagine someone could make such as statement more untethered from reality.
One of the people at the Portland riots responded to Nadler’s clueless response. Elijah Schaffer, who’s been chronicling the melees in both Portland and Seattle had some news for the congressman.
Nadler is a Ninny a Idiot and a Liberal Democrat of the Stupid Jackass Party
Nadler was not trusted by his own party to handle their impeachment theater they assigned Shifty. Nadler isnt beyond his prime he never had one.
like all democraps: farting rainbows, dancing with unicorns, and snorting cocaine. the ex pres. obama-shit got his delivered via the kitchen.
Apparently Nadler worries that there are some people in this country that don’t know he is a complete idiot. So, he took this opportunity to make that point clear.
The Democrats intend to use ANTIFA to spread political terror. They have to do whatever they can to camouflage their violence, and the liberal media does it’s share, too.
This morning, Nadler was in an auto accident on the way to the AG Barr hearings, delaying the hearings. I guess he “mythed” his exit and wrecked.
neanderthal nadler is no different in mind set of that of bar fly pelosi, cocotte harris, and slut hillary. you might enjoy this following:
