• McAuliffe Refuses to Denounce Antifa Violence

    Does McAuliffe Support Violent Leftist Group’s Actions?

    In a recent interview with the Independent Journal Review, McAuliffe again refuses to denounce Antifa by name.

    Independent Journal Review Reports:

    “In a brief interview with IJR Monday morning, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe disavowed violence on ‘any side’ – but refused to directly disavow antifa when asked multiple times.”

    “…Antifa, which stands for “anti-fascist,” is a group that is prone to use violent fascist tactics for its political ends. Antifa has a long-recorded and established history of violence against police and private citizens. In the wake of Charlottesville, dozens of far-left protestors have been arrested for violent behavior. Sunday afternoon, antifa marched on UC Berkeley’s campus in response to a prayer rally. The group beat conservative demonstrators, assaulted reporters and fought police…”

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:
    “Antifa is a leftist organization that thrives on violence. Terry McAuliffe has missed a chance to bring Virginians together by condemning their actions in our Commonwealth. I have one question for the Governor. If The Washington Post can report on their violent actions, why can’t you denounce them?”
