Leftist Troll Posts Hoax 'Warning' to Trump to Target Conservatives
Adam Rahuba posts hoax comments about targetting 'conservative areas'
A leftist troll, who masquerades as an "Antifa leader" on social media, has posted a hoax that appears to be an ultimatum to Donald Trump, saying that armed militia "will retaliate" if the president refuses to "concede by Sunday at noon."
On Twitter, Adam Rahuba poses as a leader of Antifa leftists in Pittsburgh, PA, and posts inflammatory content to target President Trump's supporters.
One post made a hoax threat that armed thugs will target "conservative areas" if their demands are not met.
UPDATE: According to a Washington Post feature, Rahuba is not an "Antifa leader" but is a leftist troll and Bernie Sanders supporter who targets Trump supporters with aggressive rhetoric and hoaxes. Rahuba is a self-described democratic socialist who has a long history of provocative online commentary, including a website he created years ago that made light of 9/11. His own website redirects to an "AntifaInExile" Twitter page that makes several statements attacking Trump supporters. While it's unclear what his motivations are, his disdain for conservatives is clear. To reflect this new information, the title of this article and some of its content has been updated.
During the September 29 presidential debate, Democrat nominee Joe Biden responded to President Trump’s remarks about Antifa-led violence.
Biden insisted that the group is not responsible for violent rioting by arguing that Antifa is simply “an idea” and “not an organization.”
Antifa is "not militia," Biden protested.
"Oh, you gotta be kidding," President Trump responded.
Conservative pundit Robby Starbuck immediately sprung into action, creating a video to show Biden how dangerously violent Antifa really is.
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— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) October 1, 2020
Rahuba's Twitter account has now been suspended, but his posts have been saved in archives, according to The Gateway Pundit.
