Fox Host Claims Antifa Is Infiltrating Law Enforcement With Help From Black Cops
According to Mediaite, Fox Nation’s Lara Logan claimed that she has “found that Antifa, a catch-all term for an atomized, anti-fascist protest movement, are infiltrating law enforcement organization across the country.”
“I stumbled across something today and I am telling you this for the first time, and that is on one of the verified Antifa web sites,” Logan said on Hannity on Thursday night. “They are using a source who is publishing the Department of Homeland Security’s flights, they are putting out the height that they are flying at, flight patterns, surveillance, aircraft being used by different agencies, putting out personal records of police officers, they know their addresses.”
- Logan offered no further explanation or evidence for her claims, and added that Antifa is doing this with help from “high-level African-American police officials and politicians,” Mediaite reported.
- “These people have a very significant organization and every time we say I don’t want to talk about this, I want to talk about these other issues, look at the history of these groups,” Logan said.
- Mediaite wrote that Logan also started implicating prominent politicians like Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison.
“They go back to Ferguson and all the others. The head of the police of Minneapolis is black. The attorney general there is black. The person in charge of state security is black. So saying that this is a race issue is allowing these groups to proliferate, to infiltrate law enforcement, and attempt to burn this country to the ground, which is their ultimate goal. They want to kill everyone.”
- Will Sommer, a technology and internet reporter at The Daily Beast, responded to Logan, who he said had promoted a “joke tweet claiming Antifa calls their members ‘juggalos.’”
