Leaked DHS Email Reveals Antifa is an ‘Organized,’ ‘Anarchist’ Threat

'The individuals are violently attacking the Federal facilities based on these ideologies. We can't say any longer that this violent situation is opportunistic...'

A leaked email from a former top Homeland Security official revealed that the federal government considers Antifa’s continued attacks in Portland to be “organized” and deliberate.

Brian Murphy, former acting undersecretary for intelligence and analysis at the Department of Homeland Security, confirmed in the email that violence in Portland over the past several months was orchestrated by Antifa.

Contrary to the claims of Democrat sympathizers who insist it is merely a loose affiliation of like-minded networks, the domestic-terrorism outfit, which has been linked to possible arson and the shooting death of at least one conservative demonstrator during the riots, is a centralized group, Murphy said.

Murphy informed staff that future references to the Portland riots would be referred to as being “violent Antifa anarchists inspired,” according to the July 25 email.

“The individuals are violently attacking the Federal facilities based on these ideologies,” he wrote. “We can’t say any longer that this violent situation is opportunistic.”

Murphy said DHS had overwhelming intelligence to support the belief that the group was promoting violence as part of its basic ideology while deploying urban guerilla warfare tactics that it has continued to hone in deceptively sophisticated ways.

“A core set of Threat actors are organized, show up night after night, share common [Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures] drawing on like minded individuals to their cause,” he wrote.

Because the subversive actors tend to embed themselves in a crowd of otherwise peaceful demonstrators, not every rioter can be considered a member of Antifa, Murphy continued.

But given the “totality of the intelligence both current and previous,” government officials need to “recognize the motivation for the violence and why people have shown up to commit violence for about 60 days,” he said.

Antifa is a threat, Murphy explained, and the government must treat it as such.

“Threat actors who are motivated by Anarchist or ANTIFA (or a combination of both) ideologies to carry out acts of violence against State, Local, and Federal authorities and infrastructure they believe represent authority or represent political and social ideas they reject,” he concluded.
