How deep do the connections with the Alt Left, antifa, government, and media run?
Grady Page, son of columnist and Chicago Tribune editorial board member Clarence Page, met with Barack and Michelle Obama last Christmas. He and his father posed with them at the White House, according to a photo that has surfaced on social media.
Video appears to show Grady masked and present at a May 1 Antifa rally outside of D.C. Superior Court, where black-clad Marxists chanted, “F*ck the MPD” (Metropolitan Police Department). With a flag for the socialist-anarchist International Workers of the World in his hand, though not visible during much of the chanting, Grady Page stood among a crowd that, were accused Antifa or Antifascist Action rioters not released, they would “burn it down.”
Grady’s shirt had the letter “A” on it, perhaps for anarchy.
At the event on the communist-commemorated May Day, Antifa members chanted: “Masking up is not a crime. L12 should do no time.”
“L12” referred to 12 suspected rioters police rounded up on Inauguration Day at the corner of L and 12th Streets, NW, in the capital downtown.
Grady has associated with and appeared at public events with Antifa for years, sources that have infiltrated the Alt Left group tell GotNews.
Based on the names of the 12 on the blog Narrative Collapse and official court records available online, the trials of those facing the most serious charges are ongoing. One of them, Dane Powell, is accused of hitting a police officer with a rock and has already been sentenced to four months in prison.
In the wake of a violent “Unite The Right” Charlottesville rally and the violent, leftist counter-protest it met, since Aug. 17, over 300,000 Americans have signed a White House petition demanding that the administration designate Antifa a “terror group” like ISIS.
The 28-year-old and his father’s closeness to the Obamas, and the popular White House petition, together shine an ironic light on a Clarence Page column from last year, in which the Chicago Tribune editor attacked President Donald J. Trump for saying Barack Obama had buddied up to America’s foes by refusing to use the words “radical Islamic terrorism:”
On Fox News Monday morning, Trump hinted that President Obama is conspiring somehow with our terrorist enemies, saying that Obama perhaps “gets it better than anybody understands” and “has something else in mind… There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable.”
“There’s something going on” is the sort of vague phrasing that Trump has used to throw mud at Obama in the past without having to bother with producing actual evidence.
The Rainforest Action Network says Page also faced arrest for a sit-in at a Charlotte, North Carolina branch of Bank of America.
Video from Inauguration Day appears to show Grady with other masked antifa members.
