EXCLUSIVE: TREVOR LOUDON ON RIOTS – ’20 PLUS’ COMMUNIST GROUPS ARE UNITING TO IGNITE REVOLUTION (WATCH)
This is way bigger than Antifa. These are the shock troops, but there are 20 or more communist groups operating freely in the United States who engage in what they refer to as ‘anti-fascist’ militant action.” – Trevor Loudon, May 31, 2020
In an exclusive interview with RAIR Foundation USA, author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon responded to President Donald Trump’s announcement that America would be designating Antifa as a terrorist organization, as well as Attorney General William Barr’s announcement that the government would enforce existing laws that make it illegal to cross state lines for the purpose of participating in violent riots.
In 2017, Loudon released a mini-documentary on the history of the violent militants of Antifa (see in full below). Loudon explained that “antifa” works “hand-in-glove” with American Marxist organizations such as the Democratic Socialists of America. “Antifa” is a militant tactic that has been used effectively by far-left activists for decades. During the Occupy Wall Street movement, the so-called “Black Bloc” used the same terrifying militant tactics.

On Sunday, the Epoch Times published an article by Loudon titled “Cities Burn, But None Dare Call It Communist Insurrection” where the expert on subversive organizations detailed several communist organizations calling on their comrades to exploit the death of George Floyd by taking it to the streets. Many of these groups are not shy about calling for violence, justifying it as a natural response to “police brutality” and “white supremacy.”
Loudon explained to RAIR that President Trump is taking a decisive step, but should consider that Antifa is an umbrella group that has largely enjoyed anonymity because they are part of a larger collective of violent leftists, including those in the communist-created Black Lives Matter movement. “This is way bigger than Antifa,” Loudon told RAIR.
“Those are the shock troops, but there are 20 or more communist groups operating freely in the United States who engage in what they refer to as ‘anti-fascist’ militant action.”
The filmmaker was very enthusiastic about Attorney General William Barr’s announcement that existing laws will be enforced that make it a federal crime to cross state lines in order to participate in rioting. Loudon explained that simply enforcing that legislation “broke the back of the communist anti-war movement in the 1960’s”, culminating in the “Chicago Seven” trials.
“The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protestors, as well as all other citizens,” as noted by a statement from the Attorney General released on May 31.
