A trio of fake/satire sites has unleashed a barrage of fake Antifa violence & terrorism stories on the internet today. Some choice headlines:
- BREAKING: First Reports Of '11/4′ ANTIFA Violence Roll In From The East Coast
- BREAKING: '11/4′ ANTIFA Thugs Attack Hillary Clinton's Motorcade By Mistake
- BREAKING: Antifa Gang Attacks Elderly White Woman As She Exits Church
- BREAKING: First Death From '11/4′ ANTIFA Attacks Reported
- UPDATE: '11/4′ ANTIFA Terrorists Take US Congressman Hostage
- BREAKING: '11/4′ ANTIFA Thugs Burn A National Treasure To The Ground - MSM Still Silent
- BREAKING: Group Of Patriots Fights Off '11/4′ ANTIFA Thugs To Save A National Treasure
- BREAKING: Three Antifa Terrorists Dead After They Messed With The Wrong Patriot
So it definitely looks like our story about one of these sites being 'resurrected' yesterday wasn't far off the mark.
(The image used to illustrate at least one of the stories is a famous photoshopped fake which was debunked by Snopes and others a long time ago)
Rest assured all of the stories are false. Freedum Junkshun, The Last Line Of Defense and Reagan Was Right are all fake sites which carry satire disclaimers at the bottom of each article:
ABOUT THE LAST LINE OF DEFENSE:
In a cynical world where the news of the day often seems fake, The Last Line of Defense offers today's busy conservative a place to go to read things they'll enjoy and congregate with a bunch of people they agree with. So while everything on this site is a satirical work of fiction, we are proud to present it to those who will have called it real anyway.
ABOUT REAGAN WAS RIGHT
Our mission is to provide a safe haven from reality for those who truly just don't know the difference. There is zero truth to anything on this site.
ABOUT FREEDUM JUNKSHUN
We believe that there is nothing more precious than the mind of an aging conservative. Here we gather a boatload of bullhonkey, works of pure satirical fiction, to give the fist-shakers of the world a reason to hate. Reality is often in the eye of the beholder. You won't find any of it here.

The owner and main writer of the sites is self-professed liberal troll Christopher Blair, a man from Maine who has made it his full time job to troll gullible conservatives and Trump supporters into liking and sharing his articles. He runs several other websites such as asamericanasapplepie.org, ourlandofthefree.com and nunadisbereel.com (formerly thelastlineofdefense.org). Sometimes he is also known under his nickname "Busta Troll". He has at least one accomplice who writes under the pen names "Freedom", "Captain Jellypants", "Butch Mannington" or "Captain Buck Atlantis".
Articles from Blair's sites frequently get copied by "real" fake news sites who often omit the satire disclaimer and any other hints the stories are fake. Blair has tried to get these sites shut down in the past but new ones keep cropping up.
If you see one of his stories on a site that does not contain a satire disclaimer, assume it is fake news. If you do see the satire disclaimer it is of course also fake news.
