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:

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?

Nadler: Yes.

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 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, Seattlethe 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.
