We all saw the images, buildings ablaze around the country in the early days of protests against the police death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
White House officials were quick to blame far-left activists antifa for the devastating violence.
No comes news news from officials a Twitter spokesperson who told NBC News that the violence has been linked to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa.
“A fake antifa Twitter account that called for violence was actually run by a white nationalist group. The account, “@ANTIFA_US,” pretended to align with the Black Lives Matter movement and ongoing nationwide protests, and called for protesters to “move into residential areas… the white hoods…. and we take what’s ours.” Twitter banned the account Monday for breaking its rules against platform manipulation, spam, and inciting violence.”
Twitter has taken the account down.
