Antifa has issued a national call to action for Antifa and other radical, America hating leftists to converge on the upcoming Trump rally in Minneapolis on Oct 10 to “disrupt” the Trump rally with an Antifa black block “America is Canceled” protest against capitalism.
Their call to action was posted on the Antifa website called It’s Going Down:
Call For An Anti-Capitalist Bloc At The Upcoming Anti-Trump Protest In Minneapolis, Minnesota On Thursday, October 10th.
Trump is having a campaign rally in downtown Minneapolis. He wants to keep America great, but…
AMERICA IS CANCELED.
Join us to celebrate with an anti-capitalist bloc.
Bring yourself, bring your friends, bring your crew and come prepared to disrupt the nightmare that is Trump.
October 10th • 6pm • Target Center
Meet at the “America is Canceled” banner.
In response to Antifa’s ‘call to action’, Oath Keepers posted their own call for volunteers to “keep attendees safe”. Citing the many instances of Antifa and others attacking attendees before and especially after Trump’s rally.
We are confident that the venue itself will be safe, but we have serious concerns for the safety of attendees as they walk from their vehicles to the venue, and then back to their vehicles in the dark afterward. There have been numerous examples of Trump supporters being attacked under those circumstances, especially as they leave a rally. Therefore, we need to be there to provide volunteer security escorts for Trump rally attendees in Minneapolis, MN just as we recently did to great success at the Trump rally in Rio Rancho, NM.
The Oath Keepers website than lists the types of volunteers they are looking for and notes that you do not have to be a member of Oath Keepers in order to volunteer.
We are looking for calm, physically capable men who can effectively protect others, while also keeping their cool under pressure.
We always work closely with other awesome patriot or biker groups. If you are the leader of a motorcycle club, riding club, association, or group that is interested in helping with security, or the leader of a three percent group, firearms association, or other patriot group, please email us….
In addition to asking for volunteers to support the effort to provide protection the site goes on to describe how they plan to interact with local law enforcement and what they expect from Antifa based on past experience.
As always, our police officers and military veterans will be communicating and coordinating closely with local law enforcement and federal LEOs so we do not get in their way while still doing our critical work of protecting rally attendees. This will be an independent volunteer security operation, not formally associated with either the Trump campaign or with any law enforcement agency, but our Oath Keepers police officers will closely liaison with all relevant LEOs so they know who we are, why we are there, where we will be, who our leaders are and how to contact them, and vis versa. We have done that dozens of times as we have protected people from Antifa violence all over the nation, from Inauguration Day in DC, on.
Antifa’s normal M.O. is to harass, assault, and distract police with one of their “black block” formations (often throwing rocks, bottles, etc at police and setting fires) and then seek out vulnerable individuals for a gang beating of three or four on one, often with a masked Antifa hitting the victim in the head with a hard object, such as a bike lock, and then disappearing back into the “black block” of identically clad Antifa, making it difficult to find the perp. They especially like to attack people as they try to get back to their vehicles. They often target the elderly and infirm. For example, at the recent Rio Rancho, NM Trump rally, we prevented violent leftists from assaulting an elderly disabled veteran.
