Ex-Antifa Member SLAMS Jerry Nadler for Calling Antifa ‘Imaginary’
Rep. Jerry Nadler apparently likes to pretend ANTIFA doesn’t exist.
On Thursday, Rep. Nadler said ANTIFA was an “imaginary thing” on the floor of the House of Representatives during a debate over a Democrat-sponsored police reform bill.
This time it seems Rep. Nadler is the one spewing “errant nonsense.” Thankfully, Nadler’s craziness did not go unnoticed. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) rightfully called out the absurdity in calling ANTIFA “imaginary” as seen in the video clip below. Ironically, in communicating his disbelief about the statement, some of Rep. Jordan’s tweets about the ordeal used the popular #Antifa hashtag.
Rep. Nadler’s “imaginary” comment occurred during debates over H.R. 7120, the so-called George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. The fact that Rep. Nadler made such a comment minimizing a genuine menace to society during debate over H.R. 7120 does not exactly instill confidence over the quality of the legislation.
The “imaginary” comment comes just days after the U.N. expressed solidarity with ANTIFA. Not long before this, several on the left had compared ANTIFA to allied forces liberating Europe during WWII. It seems the left is still trying to figure out which message to communicate regarding their recognition as support of the violent group.
According to Fox News,
Gabriel Nadales, a former member of Antifa, responded on “The Ingraham Angle” Friday to House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., calling the group “imaginary” earlier this week.
“That’s just false,” Nadales said of Nadler’s claim. “I mean, the only thing that’s imaginary here is Representative Nadler’s sense of justice. I mean, the protests I attended … weren’t imaginary. Also, the windows that I regrettably broke, they weren’t imaginary.
“Yet every single time that we have left-wing politicians … that deny and ignore and even justify Antifa violence, it’s only going to continue to grow.”
“Thankfully, I started asking questions about this movement. And then, really I … got the information that I needed and I realized that being part of it was something that I should’ve never been part of,” Nadales said. “And now I’m glad that I’m condemning it. But one thing to remember is, where is Antifa really coming from? Because Mr. Nadler thinks that it’s imaginary. Well, it’s coming, oftentimes, from college campuses.”
