Antifa, we have a missile gap


The most damning thing about antifa is that we have photographic evidence of them mixing up lots of milkshakes — it’s so pathetic that the fascists had to make up a lie about them adding quick-set cement to them, just to make it seem like maybe they were a little bit dangerous.

Contrast that with the fascists. A police raid on a fascist group in Italy found this:

The article says it’s an air-to-air missile. I don’t think the arms race has gone so far that they have an air force yet, but maybe they just want to peel the warhead out of its shell for 500 pounds of explodey evilness.

There was also this fine collection of armaments.

I guess they’ve seen too many Avengers movies, and need a fascist shield to counter Captain America. The guns are going to be an effective response to getting milkshakes thrown on them, for sure.

    The reason they’re doing this to begin with is because we didn’t engage them in polite debate about whether Jewish people and immigrants are humans.

  2. Paolo says

    The most interesting thing (imho) is that the Italian public at large is unfazed by this. It IS curious and unusual, yes, but we’re not very surprised: it’s very fascist to have a big imposing weapon that’s completely useless, after all.

  3. says

    Looks more likely to be one of the Standard family of naval surface to air missiles to me. Not much use to them without the accompanying fir control system, other than the warhead.

    In the late 50s there was a “race riot” in the downtown area of our little town…primarily white guys beating up black people trying to get served at a local lunch counter. My dad told us a few days before the event that some guy at the garage where he hung out said the KKK or some similar racist paramilitary group was moving light tanks, APCs and other heavy arms into the area…just in case. One person I know, who has a passing interest in firearms, has told me there are lots of surprising things available for sale on the Internet.

    The missile is a Matra Super 530. That model is carried on the nearly obsolete Dassault Mirage F.1 fighter. US Standard (that’s just the name) RIM-66 are much bigger, like 15 feet long.

    Quite frankly, the missile does not scare me at all. I highly doubt it’s about the explosives inside, there have to be far easier and way cheaper ways to get at 250 kg of explosives and it can not be used as a weapon of terror. This missile was more likely part of some weapons deal.

    The shitload of guns they had? That scares me. All the guns the fascist have, not only in Italy but everywhere. These can and will be used to kill.

    The only defense against a bad guy with a unwieldy weapon is a good guy with an unwieldy weapon. /s

    I guess we have missile fondlers now

    Um, there is also photographic evidence of them assaulting people…

  9. Nomad says

    The missile has been reported to be lacking it’s warhead. It’s a very strange thing indeed, really the only thing they could likely use of it is the solid rocket motor.

    Whose rhetoric if left unchecked would continue to harm vulnerable people. Just because the right wing don’t always use their hands to personally assault someone doesn’t mean that they’re not dangerous and occasionally need a physical brake.

    This gets odder and odder. No warhead on the missile, it’s radar guided, accepting radar lock information only from a Mirage F1 fighter jet. Even stranger, it’s a French made missile, belonging to the Qatari military.
    The weapons appear to be fully automatic military models as well.
    The “owner” of all of that hardware claims to be a collector, despite being not permitted to possess firearms, due to some judicial procedure in the past and had attempted to sell the missile over WhatsApp.
    The only way I could see this get weirder is with little green men being involved.

    Still, I do wonder, just where is the high explosive warhead? That’s 30 kg of high explosive fragmentation warhead rated to damage an aircraft out to 70 meters from the warhead blast.

    Worse, the propellant was with it. Micro-milled aluminum oxide powder, in a plastic matrix and enriched with high explosives, designed to burn hot and fast enough for the missile to reach Mach 4.5 to “less than Mach 5.0”.

    wzrd: “Still, I do wonder, just where is the high explosive warhead? That’s 30 kg of high explosive fragmentation”

    YMMV, but I personally think of 30 Kg of high explosive as a high explosive warhead.

    (Yeah, I know, you’re USAnian, so enough is not enough, and more than necessary is better than necessary)

  13. says

    JM, I suspect wzrd was querying the actual location of the warhead, as it is missing from the missile. Somewhere, sometime, someone sold a flash looking weapon without a bang to a bunch of right wing goobers, and kept the noisy bit.

  14. John Morales says

    Duh. OK, thanks, Lofty. Sorry, wzrd1. I didn’t actually read the linked info.

    Nah, they’re not that organised. They stole the weapon somewhere (one of them was an ex custom controller) and they were trying to sell it for money. They wouldn’t be able to use it, nor to extract explosive from it. For them it’s just money to finance the purchase of other weapons (police also found a whole lot of them together with the missile).

    So why is it these things (antifa) that converge on single idividuals and commence to assault them for not conforming to their ideology wear masks? Are the ashamed that theyll be found out? Are they just little faggots that only feel brave in a crowd? Sounds like your bully facists to me. You’d be smart to stay far from here. Well put you and the ugly dykes down where you dont get up.

  17. John Morales says

    antifaloser, very weak trolling.

    (Might as well drop the prefix to your nym, you can’t hide that)

  18. brain says

    @antifaloser: so why are you hiding behind a nickname? Tell us your name and where you live, so that we can stay far from you.
