Former Antifa Rioter Reveals Why He Left the Violent Marxist Group and Became a Conservative
It’s interesting how the left refuses to even acknowledge the violent anti-American Marxist group Antifa. They act like it doesn’t exist, and if they’re absolutely forced to acknowledge them, they’ll say stuff like, “Well, they’re anti-fascists, so they’re good people that sometimes might go overboard.” The left loves to do this. They love to use words to fight their wars, and it’s actually a smart (communist) idea that’s worked out really well for them. How can you hate a group that is “Anti-Fascist”? How can you condemn a group that says, “Black Lives Matter”? You’d have to be some kind of monster. Or how can you protest against the idea of being “pro-choice”? This is America, doesn’t CHOICE matter? Bla, bla, bla.
Of course, that’s their argument, but the reality is all hogwash. The only reason they’re anti-fascists is because they’re full-blown communists. Black Lives Matter is a communist group that uses its name to haul in millions of dollars and does NOTHING to make Black Lives Better. And finally, there is no “choice” when it comes to abortion…you either shout your abortion loud and proud or you’re a traitor to women and the cause.
And once you’re caught in this incredibly sticky web of radicalized left-wing communism, it’s nearly impossible to get out… but one person did. A Hispanic kid who was a former ANTIFA rioter left the group and became a staunch conservative. Now, he works with “Campus Reform” a highly respected and successful conservative group for young Americans.
The kid’s name is Gabriel Nadales, and he’s telling his story.
Washington Free Beacon reported that after turning away from left-wing politics, a former Antifa activist and Democratic politician are launching a new campaign to challenge what they see as pervasive anti-Americanism among the country’s youth.
Gabriel Nadales, an Antifa protester turned conservative activist, and Barrington Martin II, a former Democratic congressional candidate, launched a half-million-dollar ad buy last week through their new group Our America, aimed at empowering young people across the United States to “celebrate a pride in, connection to, and a responsibility for our community and country.” The organization, whose advisory team includes conservative commentator Deroy Murdock, will also spend $2 million to produce online content that promotes what they say are America’s unifying values: patriotism, freedom of expression, respect, dignity, and equal opportunity.
“Our America is specifically here to give people the full faith and confidence to be able to speak confidently about why they love this country,” Martin, who primaried the late Democratic congressman John Lewis (Ga.) in 2020, told the Washington Free Beacon. “When I say ‘I love this country, it’s one of the greatest gifts in the world,’ you shouldn’t scoff at me when we are all Americans.”
Just 58 percent of Americans ages 18-29 believe the United States is “one of the greatest countries” in the world, according to a Pew Research survey in December, compared with 75 percent of Americans across all age groups. Nadales and Martin aim to bolster patriotic views among young Americans by challenging the narrative, promoted by left-wing media, politicians, and activists, that America is systemically racist and oppressive. Left-wing pundits like MSNBC host Al Sharpton, for example, spent Independence Day criticizing the United States, saying, “We’ve gone from Jim Crow to Jane Crow.” Wisconsin Democratic Senate candidate Mandela Barnes that same month called the founding of the United States “awful.”
Still, almost 90 percent of Americans of all races “love” the United States, Our America polling shared with the Free Beacon shows. Yet the minority of the population who believe America is racist and evil are the loudest voices in the room, Martin said.
Nadales, who came to the United States from Mexico as a child, said his public school education encouraged him to believe that America hates immigrants like himself. Nadales said he was recruited by the left-wing movement Antifa, known for its violent rioting and looting in cities such as Portland during the Trump administration, before he graduated high school.
Isn’t it frightening that this young kid was radicalized in school? That’s why it’s so important that conservatives stay focused on the fight to save our children and get our schools back in the hands of parents and America-loving teachers.
If we can’t do that successfully, our country is doomed.
Glad to see this young man saw the light and saved himself. I hope his story, touches the hearts of other young people who are on a dark and dead-end progressive road filled with violence and hate.
