The United Nations has taken to social media to declare its support for violent radical leftist group Antifa.

In a now-deleted post on Twitter (archived here), the UN shared an image of Antifa's logo while expressing "profound concern" over opposition to the terror group's "peaceful assembly."

Posting from its official blue-ticked Geneva Twitter account on Friday, the UN blasted criticism for members of Antifascist Action, a violent Marxist-Leninist organization, citing "UN Human Rights experts."

The post took aim at calls from President Donald Trump and US Attorney General William Barr who recently said Antifa will soon be officially labeled as a domestic terrorist organization.

The United Nations Office in Geneva (UNOG) launched a defense of the violent anti-police extremist group from its official Twitter account.

The tweet stated that to describe Antifa as domestic terrorists "undermines the rights to freedom of expression."

“UN #HumanRights 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,” the now-deleted tweet reads.

Below the tweet’s text, an image of the Antifascist Action banner was posted.

Shortly after going live, the tweet, which appeared to endorse the group that’s well-known for regularly carrying out violence against their political opponents, sparked widespread outrage.  

Among other reactions, some commenters called for the UN to be defunded.

In response to the UN’s tweet, Jack Posobiec, a former Naval intelligence officer who now works as a journalist for the conservative news outlet One America News Network (OANN), wrote:

“The United Nations is running cover for an international extremist group that has conducted violent insurrectionist attacks across North America and Europe.”

“Antifa doesn’t exist and also the UN just endorsed them.”

The UN’s tweet comes after a resolution drafted by the UN Human Rights Commission.

The resolution requests a report on “systematic racism” and police abuses against people of African descent.

Antifa is notorious for causing mayhem and destruction around the US, which is why President Donald Trump intends to designate the group as a terrorist organization. 

Journalist Andy Ngo has recently announced his intention to sue the group after he was assaulted by members of Antifa in the summer of 2019.
