1. Only terrorists have a right to a family life in the UK
In case you’re wondering, the right to a family life only applies to terrorists and rapists. We keep them. https://t.co/fXWNN4CSZr

Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.
Since well before the Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly, DHS has been issuing warnings about the growing likelihood of lethal violence between the left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacist and nationalist groups.
Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.
5. Cemetery of Jewish and other groups who fought for the modern Spanish Republic desecrated. A protest took place against this desecration as well. There appears to be a brand new Soviet Flag there on a statue as well complete with the fold marks we saw on the Nazi flags in Charlottesville last month.
Sheikh Ekrima Sabri, a former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and current Imam of the city’s Al-Aqsa Mosque, will visit Britain as part of a delegation organised by Pro-Palestinian group EuroPal, according to Jewish News Online.
An email sent to MPs announced the details of Sabri’s visit agenda and offered meetings in parliament with the group between Monday 11 and Friday 15 September.
Shockingly in a 2001 radio sermon he called for the destruction of Britain and the US and said: “Allah, destroy the US, its helpers and its agents. Allah, destroy Britain, its helpers and its agents. Allah, prepare those who will unite the Muslims and march in the steps of Saladin.”
Sabri has a history of anti-Semitic and terrorist-supporting views, including advocating using children for terrorist means.
(Meanwhile, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and of all people, Michael Savage, have been banned from entering the UK for reporting that many Muslims like this one, say exactly what they say)

Listening to the audiobook of The Blank Slate by Stephen Pinker today, it occurred to me that Antifa is essentially a reversion to tribalism. A tribe of postmodernists, who would have a private lexicon of sympathy for insiders who commit egregious acts against anyone they demonize as an “outlander” (Nazi, fascist and their usual terms of dehumanization) where that attack didn’t give optimal results, and a lexicon of incitement to hate for those outside the tribe. This model goes a long way to explaining the behaviour. How for example, they can simultaneously be vicious hate filled thugs while claiming the moral high ground.
