If you’re a horse and you’re reading this… well, first of all, say hi to Wilbur Post for me. However, let me give you a warning: don’t become a police horse and then go around ANTIFA members. If so, they can stab you in the neck for being a “racist” Trump supporter.
That’s the reason an ANTIFA supporter named Kevin gave Jesse Watters for supporting the stabbing of a police horse during a counter-protest last month in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Watters had Kevin (no last name given, for reasons that will quickly become apparent) on his Fox News show this past weekend after a letter he wrote anonymously on an ANTIFA website went viral.
The letter explicitly called for violence against conservatives as retribution for “far-Right violence, murder, and arson attacks, which have been almost completely ignored by both the media and the Trump administration.”
“It is time for liberals and progressives to lose their illusions about the anarchist movement and our tactics, because, quite frankly, you have no one else willing to fight for you,” the rant, posted July 7, read.
Jesse Watters questioned the young man, and it quickly became apparent that as anarchist theorists go, this wasn’t exactly Emma Goldman we were dealing with here. While Kevin claimed they were just protecting themselves, Watters showed video from several ANTIFA riots. “We don’t see a lot of hand-to-hand combat,” Watters noted. “We just see a lot of your crew smashing windows and lighting things on fire.”
For instance, when Kevin said that ANTIFA’s only wanted “violence in self-defense from aggression by these racists and xenophobes that come and attack us at our peaceful protests,” Watters asked him if it was “self-defense when you firebombed a limousine during the inauguration?”
“Yes,” Kevin responded. That fascistic limousine had it coming, apparently.

“The owner of the limousine is a Muslim immigrant,” Watters noted. “Were you aware of that?”
Kevin changed his tune when Watters mentioned that: “A lot of violence committed by so-called ANTIFA members is actually committed by these right-wingers who basically seek to make us look bad.”
Ah, a false flag attack. An interesting rhetorical gambit from someone who explicitly called out Alex Jones’ Infowars in his original rant.
Watters then decided to see just how absurd Kevin would get by asking about the horse.
“What about when an ANTFIA member stabbed a police horse in the neck with a knife,” Watters said. “Was the horse a racist Trump supporter?”
“Yes,” Kevin responded. A horse is a horse, of course, of course — unless it’s a far-right bigot who supports President Trump, then it’s a pin-cushion for ANITFA’s.
“I didn’t know horses could vote,” Watters said through laughter.
“You see, the horse is a tool of the police. And the police, under the Drumpf (Trump) administration, have been increasingly intolerant, militarized, racist and xenophobic,” Kevin said.
There are so many things wrong with that statement, although I believe the best place to start is the fact that someone who believes stabbing police horses is totally OK may also be often encountering police officers in situations that are, um, more terse than most citizens would.
To be fair, the incident Watters was referring to — 23-year-old Lisa Simon’s attack on a horse during a counter-protest in Harrisburg in June — actually didn’t involve a knife, but a flagpole with a silver nail on the end of it, according to WPMT-TV. That still earned Simon an aggravated assault charge for an attempt at checking the horse’s equine privilege.
So, there you have it: ANTIFA’s think horses are racist and deserve to be stabbed. And yet they wonder why America isn’t putting away its Make America Great Again hats and putting on black masks to join the resistance. I couldn’t possibly fathom why.
