Chris Loesch Determines Man With Neo-Nazi Tattoos is ‘ANTIFA’ – By Jared Holt (Right Wing Watch) / June 4 2020
Chris Loesch, an outspoken right-wing activist, assessed a contextless photo of a man with neo-Nazi tattoos at a protest against the police killing of George Floyd, a black man, and determined that the individual pictured must be an anti-fascist activist.
The husband and manager of right-wing broadcaster and former National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch, Chris Loesch has presented on stage at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, conservatives’ largest conference, multiple times. At CPAC in 2012, Chris Loesch even suited up in a colonial wig and tracksuit to join right-wing talk host Steven Crowder for a “patriotic” rap number.
Chris Loesch presented a contextless image of a woman recording a cell phone video of a man with tattoos of a swastika on his chest and the words “White Pride” on his neck on Twitter Wednesday and declared, “When I see that goon I see ANTIFA.” “Antifa” is a colloquial term often used to refer to pockets of local autonomous groups that appear at protests to confront fascist, bigoted, and anti-democratic forces–including Nazis and white supremacists.
When questioned by another Twitter user who wrote, “In all fairness, I haven’t seen ANTIFA sporting swastikas,” Chris Loesch replied, “Swastikas and Hammer & Cicle are historically the same in terms of evil, horrors and atrocities committed in the name of Socialism.”
When I see that goon I see ANTIFA. https://t.co/0yTmwfAPhw
