Antifa smashes Marine recruiting office in Berkeley

Members of Antifa are getting bolder and more anti-American by the day. The group smashed out the windows of a US Marine Corps recruiting office during a violent protest in Berkeley, California, on Sunday.

    During the protest, Antifa also torched a car and damaged 21 more vehicles in city, slashing some of the tires and breaking windows, Fox News reported. After the windows of the Marine recruitment office were broken, witness and filmmaker Ford Fischer told Fox News that Antifa threatened him, telling him to flee the scene.

    “After I filmed the Antifa break the Marine Corps office window and throw a torch into a dumpster, one of them called a few over to confront me,” Fischer said. “They basically told me to leave, implying attack if I didn’t. I left. ‘Get the f*** back. Cops aren’t here. They won’t help you.'”

    Antifa had not obtained the necessary permit to host a rally in the city. On top of that, authorities had banned masks as well as a list of objects that could have been used as weapons on Friday.

    The group also allegedly set rubbish bins on fire, in a spree of vandalism and destruction across the city in its fight against members of the “alt-right”. On Sunday, police arrested 20 people who were allegedly involved in the public violence and arson.

    However, no police were around as the black bloc traveled down the street, and a handful used hammers to smash the windows of Shattuck Ave US Marine Corps Recruiting office, a user on Twitter noted.

    Berkeley police tweeted out a photo of weapons they had confiscated from the protest, including hammers, knifes, metal poles, pieces of wood and mace.

    Berkeley Police tweeted at one point that they had made “17 arrests, and, if necessary, we will continue to make more” to discourage the Antifa members.
