"From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the Continent." It was March 5, 1946, at the height of World War II when Winston Churchill spoke at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, warning of the expansion of Communism and the absolute necessity of winning the war.
"From Chicago to Seattle to Washington, D.C., to New York to Portland, an 'antifa curtain' has descended across America" is the contemporary version of the famous words, which accurately predicted the terror that would follow as Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Albania were enslaved by communism for nearly 50 years. And under the severe atheist rule, those who suffered most were the Christians.
"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound" (Isa. 61:1).
Journalist Lara Logan, who has studied antifa extensively, shared on Twitter the "10 points of action" from the "revolutionary abolitionist movement," which end with the note, "Liberation begins where America dies."
"This is what The NY Times & others want everyone to believe is a "conspiracy theory," she wrote. "They came up with 'data' to support their argument - problem is what they are saying isn't true. Here's the action plan for the people you see in black on every street where there are riots. pic.twitter.com/SgNtSxYisx

Logan also told Fox News, "Every single thing you are seeing is to incite a response, and give them exactly what they want, which is an excuse to get rid of this president, to get rid of this administration and ultimately liberation begins where America dies. That's what they want, that's in their words," Logan said.
Numerous advertising suggests antifa is a professional, organized operation that pays an average of $2,000 a month and $100 a day to the "protesters" including transportation, housing and more.
"Democrats will unite and throw everything they have at the next election, and if Christians decide not to rally together and vote according to biblical values, we could see our spiritual enemy win some major battles—in our policies, our leadership and our rights. If we are to preserve our freedoms, we can't be on the sideline," says bestselling author Steve Strang in his book, God, Trump and the 2020 Election. He gives similar references in his most recent book, God, Trump and COVID-19.
This is personal, as I was thrown down on the pavement, beaten up and walked over and kicked by antifa. I looked up and was stunned to see three 20-something white girls screaming obscenities at me for simply walking on the street.
The brilliance of the movement comes through careful use of various apps, foundations and online networks and supportive, ideologically aligned mayors and prosecutors nationwide. It also has support from the nonstop media propaganda, exemplified by Jerald Nadler, who, when asked about antifa, answered, "It's a myth that's being spread only in Washington, D.C.," a strategy taken almost word for word from the Bible of the movement, Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky.
A typical antifa-affiliated organization day will begin with an email announcing details. Early on, a "scout" will appear who checks out the area of an upcoming event, followed by an initial team that always has one person dressed in red, in direct contrast to the all-black, faces-covered attire of the antifa-affiliated groups.
Once the core team arrives, food, drinks and other supplies appear via professional delivery agencies, who bring a bill handed to the team leader.
As the time an event starts, unknowing demonstrators arrive, thinking they are part of a "normal" demonstration. They watch as the well-paid, well-trained and well-coordinated antifa-affiliated team members infiltrate the demonstration, pushing them on, leading chants and managing the event, with the person in red always being the one people come to for questions and help.
One of two things typically happens once the demonstration begins: Either the antifa-affiliated team will suddenly disappear if they feel their goal has been accomplished, leaving the unknowing other protesters alone to face the consequences; or the reverse occurs, where the regular demonstrators leave at a set time, and the antifa-affiliated teams stream in for massive nighttime riots.
With just over 60 days until the election, March 3, 1946, is a stark warning that history can repeat itself, with the evils of communism once again falling upon us. As Steve Strang reminds us, if we fail, just as the Iron Curtain fell and enslaved half of Europe for nearly 50 years, the antifa curtain will descend.
Antifa and its network have warned us and shown us clearly in all the cities where the organization has orchestrated riots what its rule will be like. As one journalist put it at a similar event where no Christians had shown up, "You guys never show up—they always do. If you don't show up, you can't expect to win."
Antifa will win if believers do not wake up and show up just 62 days before the most important election since Lincoln, organize massive prayer and register every family member, friend and anyone they know.
