Antifa Harasses Elderly Couple, Shouts 'Nazi Scum,' Blocks Them Crossing Street
Clip filmed during a protest at Mohawk College in Ontario, Canada
Far left-wing activist group Antifa has been caught on video harassing an elderly couple and blocking them from crossing the street as they screamed "Nazi scum."
The clip, which was filmed during a protest at Mohawk College in Ontario, Canada, shows the elderly couple trying to cross the street, but being blocked by the group.
The Antifa activists continue to stand in the couple's way while shouting their slogan, “Nazi scum, off our street.”
Antifa was at an event being held by YouTube personality Dave Rubin and Canadian politician Maxime Bernier, CBC reported.
Journalist Andy Ngo documented the shocking instances of violence at the protests on his Twitter page over the weekend.
Antifa is infamous for regularly participating in violence, such as attacking journalists as well as other citizens.
Despite their violent reputation, many Democratic politicians and members of the media defended the group has harmless activists.
In August, Democratic Rep. Debra Haaland of New Mexico referred to Antifa as "peaceful protesters" who are merely trying to "safeguard their city."
In August, CNN host Chris Cuomo argued that Antifa is "a good cause."
As in the US, antifa in Ontario, Canada assaulted members of the public outside the venue. A handful were detained in a police van then released without charges. https://t.co/J4ZONAIAOe pic.twitter.com/3Rt3A5R90p— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) September 30, 2019

During a segment, Cuomo attempted to suggest the violence-embracing mobs have noble intentions but was immediately met with pushback from the show's two contributors.
"You can talk about Antifa, I've watched them in streets protesting in different situations, OK?" Cuomo declared."
"There are certainly aspects of them that are true to a cause, that is a good cause; they want social justice; they want whatever they want in that context."
Last month, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter there is “major consideration” being given to designating the far-left group Antifa as a terrorist organization.
“Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR,’” the president tweeted.
“Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully, the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!”
