I have been very determined to go to the counter-protest, and I actually just bought a mag holder to wear to the event. However, after doing some research, I really think the antifa protest is/was made by a fake account, and that there won't actually be an antifa protest at all. The facebook account that made the june 10th original event was just created 5 weeks ago, and the houston antifa page claims no ownership or affiliation with that page. Also, the Texas antifa page which made the original protest has 0 positive traffic to their page - no comments by anyone in support of their group at all. Which leads me to believe that the creators of the the "This is Texas" facebook group and the creators of the counter antifa protest are actually trolling/scamming everyone, and may even be the same people who created the Texas antifa page. Take it for what it's worth. The this is texas admins post about all this work they are doing and supplies they are buying, and state that they have been in communications with HPD, but don't provide any proof of communications with anyone. I'm in Houston and was planning on going to this, but now I think I will pass. Or maybe wait till 9:30 to see if anyone other than the "this is texas" admin posts that there are actually some antifa people there.
I keep hearing this over and over. This is how the left does this stuff. You kept hearing things like "We will beat your butts" and "Bring it on" from them when we only had about 200 people saying that they were Going on FB... then as the numbers got close to 800-1,000... then you started hearing how one group says that this other group does not speak for them, and that one antifa page is fake, "no your antifa page is fake and mine is real" "Is not" "Is too!" then BLM had said that they were not coming, and saying that antifa will not be in Houston, but in San Jacinto, or Huntsville to divide our supporters, and a hundred other things to try and dissuade people from our side from showing up. Now that we have 1,500 who are saying that they are going, it is complete radio silence on their side. They pulled a permit for a protest of 300... we have 1,500, and probably more will show up. They don't like it when it is a fair fight, let alone when they are outnumbered.
Also, this event is about protesting the removal of any statues in Texas, like they did in "The Chocolate City". Whether or not antifa is there is no longer relevant. This is about showing support for this statue, and every other statue in the state that these commies will try to take down because they are "offended". It does not matter one single bit if antifa shows up or not... because 1,500+ Texans will be there.
Don't fall for their disinformation campaign, and don't sit on the sidelines on this one.
