Antifa members threatened to assassinate Christina Baum, a dentist and a member of parliament who belongs to the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party that campaigns against mass immigration. Recently, there have been 52 attacks on party headquarters and offices in Germany, and half of those targeted the AfD.
The members of Antifa involved in the fight backed out, and the the state became the accuser. McInnes says the media and the political establishment of New York used the brawl between the two groups paint Trump supporters as violent hate gangs. The judge equated the fight to the rise of Nazis in Europe.
