Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"There’s a hot new hoax about left-wing antifascist groups, and it’s blowing up on the right. In this latest round of obviously disproven lies about antifa, conservative parents are scared that the movement’s activists will report them to Child Protective Services to take their children away.

Conservative activist Patrick Howley — the Big League Politics founder who’s now at the pro-Trump Epoch Times — kicked things off earlier this month by citing a graphic from ostensible antifa account “@JoinAntifa” that promised to report Trump supporters with children to social services.

“Lots of sources say this is happening — don't let them say this was a joke,” Howley tweeted.

From there, the idea that antifa activists are trying to steal away Trump supporters’ kids earned articles across right-wing blogs in addition to being picked up by Twitter personalities like Jack Posobiec.

“This is sick,” declared adult film star Jenna Jameson.

Despite its popularity on the right, this idea is totally fake. The entire claim is based on the single @JoinAntifa tweet. @JoinAntifa has just 36 followers, and is obviously set up to either troll Trump supporters or help create damaging fake news stories about antifa." (More)
