Antifa: Steven Crowder and Jared Monroe appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast to discuss their recent infiltration into Antifa, which according to Jared was quite easy. Jared claimed that Antifa openly discusses where they’re meeting on their social media pages, which are also easy to infiltrate. Jared recorded his first meeting with Antifa, where they proceeded to give him a knife, discuss upcoming protests and their acquisition of firearms such as two AK-47’s and a sawed-off shotgun. When Crowder and Jared attempted to provide the information they gathered to the media and FBI, the news media outlets did not want to cover the story and the FBI was more interested in Antifa’s function/organization and Jared’s communication with Antifa members via an encrypted app. (Source:
