On ‘The View’, Whoopi Goldberg tried to argue that Antifa was really created by the right wing to make liberals look bad. But another panelist Paula Faris, crushed her for it.
“Antifa – it’s anti-fascism. For anybody that thinks this is a nonviolent group – they’re predicated on violence. In fact, the Department of Homeland Security, according to documents-” started Faris before being interrupted by Whoopi Goldberg.
“This to me – Antifa is one of those things, I don’t want to say the right, but somebody came up with as a catch phrase so that you could say there’s violence on the other side. I don’t remember violent demonstrations before the gentleman who’s in now came in,” said Whoopi Goldberg.
Farris kept going. “According to confidential government documents, they were labeled a “domestic terrorist group.” Antifa was. The Department of Homeland Security started warning local and state officials about them back in 2016. When we were at the inauguration covering it for ABC we took a quick break, got a quick bite in DC, and Antifa started storming the streets. I was frightened. We had to lock the restaurant we were in because they were knocking people over, they were burning things, they were attacking police, breaking the windows,” said Farris.
However, Whoopi Goldberg kept pushing her conspiracy theories. “I’d never heard of this, and people kept saying on television — particularly on the other networks – “Well, this group.” I kept saying, “Who is this group?” Because when you see how stuff is organized, you can say “that’s who we are, we’re fighting for this.” But oftentimes I’ve found that sometimes the side that is kvetching the loudest has sort of orchestrated this so they can bitch about it. I’m not sure who was storming through the streets. I’m not sure who was storming through the streets,” said Goldberg.
