Most when most people think "Antifa" they immediately picture riots, arson, and looting. Maybe someone should have explained this to the United Nations.
The United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) has removed a social media post that defended the right of Antifa to “freedom of expression” and “peaceful assembly” after considerable backlash...
The now-deleted post, which also displayed the far-left movement’s flag, said: “UN Human Rights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”
One of the experts the UN cited was Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, a UN Special Rapporteur who also works as the Board Chair on the left-liberal billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundations Women Program.
The defense of Antifa from the United Nations sparked a substantial backlash on social media, with many calling for the United States to “defund” the international body.
