NEW: A Twitter account claiming to belong to a national “ANTIFA” organization that was pushing violence was actually being run by a white nationalist group, per a Twitter spokesperson

A Twitter account claiming to belong to a national “antifa” organization and pushing violent rhetoric related to ongoing protests has been linked to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa, according to a Twitter spokesperson.

The antifa movement — a network of loosely organized radical groups who use direct action to fight the far-right and fascism — has been targeted by President Donald Trump as the force behind some of the violence and property destruction seen at some protests, though little evidence has been provided for such claims.

"We're taking action proactively on any coordinated attempts to disrupt the public conversation around this issue," a Twitter spokesperson said. Many accounts tweeting the message had few to no followers. The same messages were also posted on Reddit and 4chan late Sunday. The posts pushing the #DCBlackout hashtag peaked in popularity around 12:30 a.m. ET Monday.

One verified Twitter user, Jason Elia, said his account was hacked to tweet the message. Elia lives in Oklahoma City and said he wouldn't go to Washington"unless they build an In-N-Out there." He said he has since changed his password.

Is this the same twitter person who censored the President for stating he wanted to stopthe riots and violence? We the American people don't believe you and CNN fake news!

Where is your proof.

Ha Ha Ya Right! Fake newa!

OKnox Why is this the narrative the left wants pushed?Twitter suspended them after one tweet. Follow who bought and left the bricks. No one is believing any of it because the media has lost all credibility.

OKnox Raise your hand if you’re surprised.

White nationalists and Antifa belong in the same boat. This in no way diminishes the terrorist categorization of Antifa. Ask Tim Kaine if he is still so proud of his son.

We knew this

Wow such utter and total bullshit. 🙄 This is why no one takes Yahoo news seriously.

That’s how they roll and that’s how they troll

🤣🤣🤣

Because Antifa totally doesnt push for violence. Weve been watching it for years now.

FakeNews

shocking saidnooneever

FAKE NEWS! YAHOO SUCKS!

Odds are that Trump/ Barr won’t declare this white nationalist group a terrorist organization, even as they claimed to be ANTIFA.

Bullshit

false. nice try.

Why does Yahoo and Twitter want to defend Antifa instead of exposing this planned insurrection. The answer is plain the media fully supports this because they think it will help get rid of Trump.

Somebody better tell the Biden campaign and celebrities that they are bailing our White Nationalists then.

Yeah, OK.

Yahoo is FAKE NEWS TRASH.

Trump Weighing Options On Protest Response, White House Official SaysPresident Trump hasn't decided whether he will deliver a formal speech addressing the protests that have erupted over police brutality and the death of George Floyd, a White House adviser says. Problem is that if an aide writes a nice compassionate speech it will be VERY HARD for LittleDonnie to just recite it and not go off the rails and scream at the grownups that he is VERY MAD at them for being so UNFARE to him! god I hope not Don't even bother. He always makes things worse, and sadly he doesn't even care about what happened
