There are, of course, a lot of things to refute this. But if you see anyone pushing that nonsense, send them this story.
According to WBay, the police in Green Bay, Wisconsin were called because of a report of “a whole bunch of white people with sticks, baseball bats and helmets headed… towards the police.” They were headed to a BLM demonstration. Naturally, the police chief, Andrew Smith, viewed having bats a little askance. “I don’t know who comes to a protest with a baseball bat for anything other than criminal or illegal activity,” he said.
Police saw the people including a man wearing a metal helmet with goggles and military-style gear with multiple pouches, carrying an Antifa flag.
When the police pulled up, they all ran, but the police caught 23-year-old Matthew Banta who was carrying the flag. They said when they caught him, he “dropped into the fetal position and began crying.”
How on target is that? Antifa, tough guys until caught, then little babies.
