Several days ago, I posted about an active cell of Antifa operating in and around the Tampa Bay area of Florida. I have been doing some research and as much of a threat assessment of this as I can. I would have posted sooner on this, but I had several employees get COVID and have just worked a pair of 16 hour days covering their shifts. This is the first chance I’ve had to sit down and write this all out.
When the guy was caught, he had a checklist in his possession. The list itself shows that someone is training these guys to be good little insurgents. Read it for yourself, and you can see that they are being taught how to do this.
This also gives you an idea of the basic load carried by these guys. Note that they do not (yet) have firearms on the list, but as you will see below, many people in this group DO carry weapons as well as firearms.
Using this list and news articles on the arrestee, I was able to find quite a bit of information.
Here is the intel that I have on the cell he was operating with:
Command, Control, Communications
The particular unit he seems to have been affiliated with is the Florida Youth Liberation Front. The Front claims to have chapters in Oregon, Washington, California, Florida, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois, New York, and Washington, DC, as well as in Canada. The Washington state version of the Front is known to have been around since 2018. The Florida chapter was formed in 2020.
They appear to be centrally controlled at the national level, and the different chapters coordinate their actions. The Portland chapter provides training for members of other chapters.
Their online presence is hosted by noblogs.org. This webpage is set up for insurgent groups. This platform caters to far-left causes, stating that it exists for the purpose of “connecting radical people.”
They use the crowdfunding platform GiveButter to collect donations. They use the messaging app Telegram to communicate, and include instructions on how to setup an anonymous account on their blog. Email is handled through riseup.net.
Their Twitter feed is not open to the public, but Twitter seems to have no problem allowing a group that advocates for violence, as long as that group is on the left.
One common theme I found on every site is the desire for the violent overthrow of government. I don’t understand how these guys’ meetings aren’t attended by a dozen cops. Every other criminal enterprise in the nation has been infiltrated to the point where they have more cops than real members, but these guys? This HAS to indicate some kind of government support. Reading the group’s website, and especially their “ezine” is fairly instructive.
The Front is broken down into smaller “affinity groups,” who operate at the local level. These groups participate in sabotage, vandalism, and other violent acts, which they call “direct actions.” This is a classic cell structure that has proven to be quite effective.
Other Antifa-affiliated groups claim they are not connected to YLF, but other left-wing extremist groups have shared the Front’s propaganda on social media, and YLF shares their propaganda and event announcements. The wording, images, and tactics are similar enough to indicate a common controlling entity at some level.
The Front explicitly discourages peaceful protest. In June 2020, the Front advised protesters that they “can never be peaceful” if it means complying with police demands. Journalist Andy Ngo says that the Front “openly advocate[s] for violent uprisings.” In his testimony to Congress in August 2020, he identified YLF as the organizers of riots in Portland and other cities during the summer of 2020.
Their members are known to frequently carry loaded firearms, as well as use destructive devices such as Molotov cocktails, as well as commercial fireworks, which they sometimes modify into antipersonnel IEDs by wrapping them in duct tape and nails.
The Front is known to have carried out several violent acts:
- They instructed rioters in Portland to target private property and called for “death to America.” CSP said that multiple store fronts and a Catholic church were vandalized in riot that followed the Front’s statements.
- The group took credit on Twitter for the firebombing of an Oregon police officer’s home in November of 2020. Twitter declared that the tweet did not violate their community standards against the glorification of violence.
The Front recently sued Andy Ngo for “stealing” their comments and photos. They dropped the suit when it was pointed out that Ngo was covered by “fair use.”
What is the threat?
It would be fairly easy to dismiss this group as a bunch of 20 something soyboy cucks who are cosplaying the revolutionary role while still living at home with mom and dad. That would be a mistake. While it is accurate that they are a bunch of man-children who still live at home and have no real career, this group is much more than that.
They have organization, a decent command and control network, funding enough for travel, attorneys, equipment, and an extensive propaganda network. Their members are motivated and becoming better equipped and trained by the minute.
Judge them by the fact that they are brazen and have no problem breaking the law. They have little to lose, and are out there carrying out violent attacks while the government sits on its hands, and those of us on the right largely sit around and complain on the Internet. Those on the right who DO stand up and say something are declared to be the terrorists and wind up being tortured for over a year in Federal prison, without trial and without bail.
They are dangerous and effective by the only metric that matters: they are succeeding, especially in Democrat controlled areas.
What can you do?
The best thing that we have going for us in Florida is our governor and our legal climate. So, the best thing we can do is stay right here in Florida.
Next, whenever you are in a crowd, keep a close eye on anyone dressed all in black. Especially if they have a backpack. If you see them making any attempt to place or use a device, remember that it is a forcible felony in Florida to do that. In fact, you should probably review the rules in Florida for deadly force in riot situations, found on this very site.
Be prepared to GTFO to a safe location. Be armed.
Use your head. Now that you have seen how people at the J6 event were treated, you can see where this is going.

Very good. Thanks!

Kipling as always is appropos,
As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market-Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall.
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.
We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn.
That water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision, and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorilas while we followed the March of Mankind.
We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither clud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market-Place;
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.
With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch.
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch.
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings.
So we worshiped the Gods of the Market Who promiced these beautiful things.
When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promiced perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: ‘Stick to the Devil you know.’
On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promiced the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbor and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: ‘The Wages of Sin is Death/’
In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selective Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: ‘If you don’t work you die.’
The the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tounged wizards withdrew,
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to belive it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four—
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man—
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began:—
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Under the subjects of clothing and armor, they seem to have a thing for the color black.
Also, the handwriting, layout, outlined areas, and “umbrella” say some things about the individual.
Divemedic · January 11, 2022 at 4:23 pm
I think that they do that for two reasons: It’s a uniform that allows them to recognize each other, and it also makes it harder for police to identify any one individual.
(((Doc B))) · January 12, 2022 at 1:37 pm
The umbrellas ate used to block out cameras and to deflect non lethal munitions.
It would be well advised to stop minimizing and underestimatng your enemy.
Divemedic · January 12, 2022 at 3:52 pm
I agree. There will soon be a post on that.
Joe · January 16, 2022 at 11:47 am
The minions maybe be stupid, but the ones running the show aren’t. They have the perfect set-up: their AntiFA thugs destroy and intimidate while the police are put into the position of being their back-up force. If righties are dumb enough to take the bait they are arrested by police or beaten by AF. If the righties were to prevail in a fight, then the MSM posts the pictures of bloody heads, handing the Dems a propaganda victory. Who is really running this show? Reasearch “color” revolutions around the world and you will find CIA fingerprints.

That page looks like the scrawlings if a ADHD afflicted, Ritalin dosed 5th grader. Im not implying it isn’t a serious threat, as it is. I’d like to know if these destructive little faggots are carryiing all that gear at all times. It’s a hell of a big list (outside the clothing, all of which is worn anyway), and seems to me a bit bulky to have all of it on one’s person at any given time. Then you have to go digging through the pack to find the one of 37 different items packed therein?
As far as their ability to withstand organizational infiltrarion: yeah, funny how that works, ain’t it? Of course the govt is giving them support and cover. Easy enough to discern that many of the big shots in command and control of these shits are actually working day jobs for gov at the state and federal level. This is what they do. It’s what they’ve always done. Which sets up a nice little paradox for the good guys: gotta get rid of the govt to get rid of the shit disturbers, because they are one and the same. Read that last page of Animal Farm again as a refresher.

Caltrops? Interesting how the laws would see those.
Collapsible baton, don’t know about FL, but considered a concealed weapon in OH – illegal, not covered by CHL (not CCW) there.
Black, the new brownshirt.

Good information – not surprising but definitely something to be aware of.
Yep · January 11, 2022 at 6:02 pm
Look at from their perspective. I’ve carried a black hoodie and pants for awhile now. I have a quick bailout bag that I can use to change into quickly to blend into the crowd.
If I somehow end up turning down the wrong road and find myself having to unass my vehicle, I’ll try to blend in as best possible…..to make my angled get-away
joe · January 11, 2022 at 8:42 pm
the gov isn’t sitting on it’s hands doing nothing…they are encouraging it and the vp raised money to bond the little fucks out of jail…alone, most of them are fucking vaginas…it’s only in groups are they brave…every encounter i’ve seen online where they were out numbered they ran like girls…
Bert · January 12, 2022 at 9:26 am
Look back at the list, next to the area marked “keep in backpack” 5th line down says “road flares and GUN”
Out of curiosity, would it be considered bad sport to mix in the good “Quick-clot” with half a load of rock salt? The Bern😇
Divemedic · January 12, 2022 at 10:30 am
I saw that. I believe that it refers to flares and a flare gun. As in 12 gauge flares.
Bert · January 13, 2022 at 6:06 am
To me “road flares” come in a nice plastic red box, usually in the kit are a couple three of foldable reflecting triangles as well. Hopefully you are correct.
Divemedic · January 13, 2022 at 8:13 am
I know, but this is a 20 year old who has never had a real job and still lives with his mother. He likely doesn’t know the difference.

The equipment list speaks volumes. Tactics and level of training. Poor but functional. Individually bad but effective in groups.
They are willing to take action and have little to nothing to lose. Half assed action now is superior to perfect later.
The threat is identified. Rough tactics are defined. Intel without action is just information. So, how to redirect and make them ineffective or self destructive?
Asking for a friend.
Too many are underestimating these people. Sunlight is the best disinfectant and way to change it. How to expose them?

Notice the 22 yr old ANTIFA perp address is a $660,000 house on a gold course….
