ANDY TIFA’S FEET ON FIRE
It’s the video that’s sweeping the conservative blogosphere. The Antifa rioting moron in Portland whose legs were engulfed in flames of his own Molotov Cocktail. Twitter wag Steve Inman calls him Andy Tifa.
Andy’s comrades tried ineffectually to extinguish the flames which the police efficiently put out. There are other videos of Antifa people injuring themselves or each other, but this one has legs (burning legs, if you will).
There’s a reason for its popularity: that short video encompasses everything wrong with Antifa, and it’s okay to laugh because no one was seriously hurt in the making of that video. Don’t know about Andy, though
From the beginning, there’s been a duality about Antifa. On the one hand, it’s a genuinely dangerous organization that is committed to overthrowing the United States, one city at a time. Antifa members in Portland have brutally attacked police officers with rocks, firecracker missiles, bottles of frozen water, balloons with fecal matter (a form of germ warfare), and lasers (an attempt to blind the police). They’ve also tried to trap police in their station and burn them alive.
Fire is a big deal for Antifa. They try to set everything on fire. One of their members, a cross-over person from Black Lives Matter, murdered Aaron “Jay” Danielson in cold blood. Many of these people are clearly psychopaths.
On the other hand, aside from the psychopaths, many of them are also laughably ineffective, useless, and pathetic people. Like Andy, the “Human Hot Pocket.” Or Matthew Banta, who had dangerous weapons in his possession, including a flamethrower, when finally caught by the police, curled up on the ground in a fetal position and cried. When one Antifa member stabbed another, the victim repeatedly, and without irony, called for the police.
Then, of course, there are the videos of Antifa rioters meeting up with Proud Boys who know how to fight. As a boxer myself, I can say the Proud Boys look good, while the Antifa kids looking like toddlers having tantrums:

And now there’s hot foot guy. It’s all there: the psychopathic viciousness in the Molotov cocktail; the love affair with fire; the immature, stupid behavior in the face of an emergency; and the need for the grown-ups (in the form of the police) to come to rescue them.
The video is everything that’s wrong with Antifa. And we can laugh at what happened without guilt.
And of course, there’s the fact that so many songs mention fire and burning. Here are some of the best burning Antifa man videos:
Here’s another one for y’all https://t.co/CM98S5dwYJ

The burning Antifa video perfectly pings two of Alinsky’s rules: Rule 5, which says, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” and Rule 6, which says, “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” So enjoy these burning Antifa man videos without guilt. They are the perfect response to the immature psychopathy of the Antifa rioters.
