A television station in Sonoma County, Calif. infiltrated the dealings of far-left activists there and has revealed incriminating comments made during an online meeting.
They did so with the help of a local, Trump-supporting business owner who told the station that he infiltrated a group of activists in Sonoma County who call themselves anti-fascist, or Antifa, and handed over what he says is their “target list” and recordings of their planning meetings.
One such exchange discussed killing police:
Group leader: “It’s May Day, baby, like come out and take, take somethin’ over with us, I don’t, I don’t (bleep)-ing know.”
Member: “Let’s kill people. (laughs)”
Group Leader: “Let’s kill some cops.”
ABC7’s I-Team is also investigating the group’s connection to recent vandalism, including an incident involving pig’s blood at the former home of a defense witness in the trial of Derek Chauvin, convicted in the death of far-left martyr/icon George Floyd, who died in the custody of Minneapolis police.
Former Santa Rosa Police Officer Barry Brodd testified as a use of force expert in the George Floyd trial, defending the actions of Derek Chauvin. Brodd testified on April 13 that “Derek Chauvin was justified” in his use of force with Floyd.
Less than one week later, black-clad vandals threw a pig’s head and blood at the house where Brodd used to live in West Santa Rosa.
A short time later, police say, the same group doused a statue at a nearby shopping center with blood, posting a sign reading “oink oink.”
The Trump supporter who infiltrated a group of activists said, “I saw that they were here, I read their manifesto, and I could tell that they were a threat to the community, and somebody needed to do something about this.” The infiltrator said they were able to join the group that communicates through the encrypted messaging app Wickr, and that they saved messages, documents, and recordings of their meetings.
