Twitter Bans Analyst Who Revealed AntiFa Connections With Journalists.

Twitter banned a researcher dedicated to mapping out AntiFa’s connections to journalists and the SPLC.

“One of his recent articles focused on a U.S. regional intelligence report whose authors concluded that Antifa and the far right share responsibility for street violence. “Experts say the report mischaracterizes the dynamics of the street violence,” Wilson complained.

One of Wilson’s main “experts” in the piece, it turned out, was none other than Antifa handbook author Mark Bray, who, predictably, denounced the report’s contents as “ludicrous.” In fact, Bray makes regular appearances in Wilson’s articles.
