Last week the DC Metropolitan PD suffered a massive data leak after being hacked by a Russian-language syndicate. Among the leaks include law enforcement training on #antifa�s ideology and tactics. The material is surprisingly accurate. I'll quote it here rather than screenshot:
DC MPD: "Antifa--the movement is a conglomeration of left-wing autonomous, militant anti-fascist groups in the United States. The principal feature of antifa groups is their use of direct action."
DC MPD: "They [antifa] engage in varied protest tactics, which include digital activism, property damage, physical violence, and harassment against those whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right."
DC MPD: "They [antifa] tend to be anti-capitalist & they are predominantly far-left & militant left, which includes anarchists, communists & socialists. Their stated focus is on fighting far-right & white supremacist ideologies directly, rather than through electoral means."
DC MPD : "This group by far is the most violent we have dealt with over the years."
DC MPD: "As you all are aware during the Inauguration of President Trump this was the group that destroyed property, assaulted any Trump supporter they ran into includ[ing] the elderly. They have no moral compass on who they go after."
This is the key conclusion in the internal DC Metropolitan Police training material on #antifa: "If you do not believe in what they [antifa] believe in, you are a target of violence."
Whoever compiled the report understands the most important things about antifa.
The internal training material from DC MPD on #antifa also includes various law enforcement strategies and tactics to counter them but I won't quote here given the information may be sensitive.
