from? is from the mainstream media. there was an embassy panelist advocating people to march to trump supporters homes with pitchforks and torches just to be rate people because they disagree with them and this is streaking from the antifa playbook. so long as people encourage this behavior, i'm glad to see the mayor of portland is taking this seriously. >> in terms of antifa, should they continue to be covered in a way. >> for posting the truth about this it is not an organization inciting fascism. at first glance itself like a good thing. that is why i joined all those years ago. it is an inherently violent organization, the mainstream media needs to report the truth
about antifa that it is not -- they are not fighting fascism, they are fighting anybody and everybody they disagree with. heather: how did you come to that realization and why did you decide to cut ties with them? >> i came to the realization, i had a lot of questions, a lot of people basically berating me for asking questions and it was thanks to the leadership that i left antifa. i work for the leadership institute now and going on a campus tour behind the black mask. my goal is to talk to as many, the threat of political violence and dialogue is better. heather: dialogue is a better route to go. thank you for joining us. let's hope you have a great weekend and nothing happens in portland. talk about the save of the century.
