Please … it was cute and all when CNN announced that “alt-left” was just an insult and a “made-up term,” but let’s be serious for a minute. As many suggested, perhaps CNN was just admitting that the mainstream left is so far out there at this point there’s no room for an “alt” version.

As Twitchy noted, it wasn’t long after a college student came forward in a mob toppling of a Confederate statue in Durham, N.C., that her comrades from the Workers World Party were on hand with preprinted “Smash White Supremacy” signs.

So, sure, while those on the left perpetuate the fiction that there are only two sides — Nazis and everyone who isn’t a Nazi — the communists have made it a point to be at every protest, everywhere. If you don’t believe us, look at the photos; in particular, look at the URLs printed on the bottom of the biggest banners.

So it’s zero surprise to see that someone — someone with a very “white-sounding voice,” if you’ll pardon the assumption — captured video of himself and a comrade smashing a monument to “genocidal terrorist” Christopher Columbus in Baltimore.

Yes, the city did remove four Confederate statues literally in the dead of night, so whoever this is had to settle for smashing Columbus, but he made the most of it with a revised script.

It’s tempting to skip forward, but really, stay for the whole two minutes. There’s narration, subtitles, and even a reading list that scrolls by at the end, along with a list of “economic justice” organizations.

The black hoodie is sort of their uniform, see. It’s been a staple of the antifa (the movement politically woke actress Alyssa Milano claims not to have heard of) for a while now; check out the May Day riot in Portland, or the vandalizing of the campus and city of Berkeley.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the “alt-left” that doesn’t exist, OK? Unless, of course, you’re comparing them to the soldiers who stormed Normandy on D-Day.

Let’s not forget after all the statues have been smashed — except for that statue of Lenin in Seattle, of course — where it all started, and who was defending it.
