Antifa GUILTY!

(TheProudRepublic.com) – Following the revelation in 2022 that the Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade, three Florida Antifa group members pleaded guilty to targeting employees of crisis pregnancy centers that provide alternatives to abortion.

According to the Department of Justice (DOJ), between May and July 2022, Caleb Freestone, Amber Smith-Stewart, and Annarela Rivera engaged in a series of attacks on pregnancy resource centers, vandalizing their buildings.

The trio confessed to carrying out these attacks at night, wearing masks and dark clothing.

They spray-painted threatening messages on the buildings, including “If abortions aren’t safe than neither [sic] are you,” “YOUR TIME IS UP!!” “WE’RE COMING for U,” and “We are everywhere.”

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody announced in March 2023 that her office would take action against groups like Antifa and Jane’s Revenge, who were responsible for vandalizing crisis pregnancy centers in the state.

“Antifa and Jane’s Revenge are criminal organizations and must answer for their crimes in Florida. I am taking action to hold their members accountable for attempting to intimidate and threaten law-abiding citizens in our state,” Moody said.

Moreover, assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke from the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division condemned the actions of the defendants, emphasizing that the defendants vandalized pregnancy resource centers with threatening messages meant to terrify the employees of those centers.

She further added, “Violence and threats have no place in the national discourse about reproductive rights.”

Criticism has been leveled at the DOJ for perceived bias in handling cases like these, focusing extensively on prosecuting pro-life activists for protesting at abortion clinics.

The agency has pursued convictions under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, including cases involving a 75-year-old woman sentenced to two years in prison despite her reported health issues.
