We do wish that the House Judiciary GOP account had given us a little more context to work with here, but we do hear Rep. Jerry Nader refer to Antifa as an “imaginary thing.” Antifa might be surprised to learn they’re imaginary, considering the number of protests and counterprotests and riots they’ve been involved in over the past several years.
Seriously? Tell that to the business owners whose shops were looted and destroyed. pic.twitter.com/o8IVgP9G8I

Even CNN’s Don Lemon defended the organization, saying, “It says it right in the name: Antifa. Anti-fascism. Which is what they were there [in Charlottesville] fighting. Listen, no organization is perfect. There was some violence.”

I'm sure the anarchist symbols being left on the buildings when they left were a happy accident.

It didn't personally impact @RepJerryNadler so it didn't happen.

I hope imaginary Antifa pays him a visit at home

I'm pretty sure that @MrAndyNgo could give Jerry Nadler a real good argument. Maybe Nadler's 'imaginary' friends will turn on him one day soon.

@RepJerryNadler is a damned fool to say such a thing on the record.
The Dems are the living embodiment of the "this is fine" fire meme at this point.

I could let it go if he was just dumb. Fact of the matter he is not, which means he is supporting this sort of anarchy in our country. He knows damn good and well what it is and what it means, and it is furthering his political narrative. That is unforgivable.

That's an insult to the group, they should answer to that.

The only things imaginary in Nadlers life is his waistline and his impeachment evidence
— Mike Swifty2.0 (@jmikem2) June 25, 2020
He is a true buffoon and possibly the biggest pushover of all time.
He has to be the most obvious example of someone that lied once and has to continue the charade because his handlers have said so, despite not even believing what he is saying or doing

The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra notes that even the U.N. in a now-deleted tweet expressed its support of “anti-fascist activists” like Antifa.

The Chair of The Judiciary Committee. 🤦♂️

It undermines peaceful assembly, but isn't Antifa's whole shtick that they can't and/or won't be peaceful when confronting anyone they consider "fascist?"
— Kevin Smith (@defaultdotxbe) June 25, 2020
Their whole schtick is “punching Nazis,” as well as harassing any journalists who try to get their gatherings (and faces) on video.
More evidence of Antifa's existence than Russian collusion

I guess the Antifa I saw in Colorado, waving their standard and attempting to intimidate Conservatives with hateful slogans and chants were a figment of my imagination.
— Amy (@colo_frtrnge) June 25, 2020
The last thing in the world ANTIFA does is peacefully protest. So the UN is already wrong.

And they so bravely deleted the post and now direct you to their website. Where no comments are accepted for the garbage statement they put out.

Who designed the logo and flag for an imaginary group that all dresses the same and coordinates protests on social media?
