The Gateway Pundit noted other tweets from Rahuba, including: “If you have children and you let them see their MAGA grandparents, I don’t respect you” and “This attitude is why I’m done targeting conservative politicians and have begin (sic) operations directly against MAGA voters.”
Rahuba also said he was offering people rides to the polls on Election Day.
Conservative activist Robby Starbuck created a video he posted on Twitter to show Biden and his supporters that Antifa is a well-organized, violent domestic terror group.
You all helped make this happen. It would be a shame if tons of voters saw just how ridiculous Joe Biden’s Antifa claims are. Antifa isn’t an idea Joe, they’re 100% organized. #JustSayNoToAntifaJoe pic.twitter.com/CMVdh9RpGL

Biden’s New WH National Security Adviser Downplayed Antifa Threat
By Fox News. Jake Sullivan, the Democratic aide tapped by President-elect Joe Biden to be the next White House national security advisor, previously downplayed Antifa, calling them “a loose collection of people on the internet.”
Over the summer, Sullivan opposed President Trump’s earlier pledge to classify the left-wing group as a terrorist organization, the Daily Caller reported in June.
“First of all, the United States has the capacity to designate foreign organizations as terrorist organizations, not domestic organizations,” Sullivan said during a Foreign Policy conference call. “So we can start with the fact that this is not a kind of credible announcement that was made, it was a purely political announcement.
“I’m not a deep expert on Antifa such as it is, but from what I do know, I think Antifa is probably better described as a loose collection of people on the Internet who share tactics and tools and, you know, people individually identify as part of this loose network, not so much an organization with the structure and leadership and funding and so forth,” he added.

Twitter Says Antifa-Aligned Group Cheering Alleged Arson at Police Officer’s Home Is Allowed
By Fox News. An Anitfa-aligned group’s tweet that seems to celebrate arson doesn’t violate the site’s policies because the post’s language is too vague, according to Twitter.
Fox News noted Monday that Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front tweeted “this is so cool” in response to an article about officials investigating alleged arson targeting a law enforcement officer. Oregon Public Broadcasting reported on Friday that federal law enforcement agencies were investigating the issue, although the Washington County Sheriff’s Office already claimed the incident was arson.
A law enforcement official reportedly said that there was a “concern in this case that the officer was surveilled and followed home.”
Twitter’s Elizabeth Busby told Fox News on Tuesday that the tweet didn’t violate its rules and linked to its policy on safety and other issues. (Read more from “Twitter Says Antifa-Aligned Group Cheering Alleged Arson at Police Officer’s Home Is Allowed” HERE)
