Antifa member arrested and charged for shooting Big Pharma protestor

A far-left Antifa leader has been arrested and charged for shooting somebody who was protesting Big Pharma.

Benjamin Anthony Varela, 36, has been charged with first-degree assault while armed with a deadly weapon. If found guilty he could spend up to twenty years in jail.


Per NY Post, “Antifa member charged with shooting anti-vaxxer in Washington”:

On Sept. 4, a couple dozen Antifa from around the Pacific Northwest traveled to the Washington state Capitol building to try to shut down an anti-COVID vaccine mandate protest. The black-clad group was met by the rally’s volunteer right-wing security, who included Proud Boys members. When the Antifa group ran to the Intercity Transit Station, one of their masked members turned around and fired five 9mm pistol rounds in the direction of the right-wing group, which was about 50 feet behind, according to security footage. Proud Boys member Tusitala Toese was injured in the shooting.

Images from the Olympia Police Dept. show handgun allegedly used by Benjamin Anthony Varela to shoot anti-covid vaccine mandate protester. The handgun holster features an LGBT flag and reads, “Defend Equality.”

Varela, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, deleted most of his social media accounts before his arrest, but posts still available on Twitter show he corresponded back and forth with the Spokane and Olympia DSA chapters as well as Libcom.org, an anarchist-Communist website. Prior to deleting his Twitter account, his bio read, “professional anarchist, thug, and paid protester.” His YouTube account, which is still online but doesn’t have any videos available to the public, features a red and black Antifa flag as its profile image. According to the affidavit, Varela ran into an alley behind the Union Gospel Mission after the shooting and discarded his black uniform.

[…] At the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, Varela wrote: “Start hurting people, the coronavirus is going to provide great cover for a real revolution.” He called for people to take up arms. The same month, he posted a rant wishing that both conservatives and liberals die of the coronavirus. In 2018, he wrote, “9/11 was good because the US is a Nazi state so we deserved it.”

Information Liberation reports: “Anti-fascism” means shooting people who oppose forcing the entire population to take experimental vaccinations on behalf of Big Pharma.

We must “start the revolution” by putting Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla in charge of a new world order.

As NY Gov. Kathy Hochul said on Sunday shortly before ordering thousands of unvaxxed heath care workers to be fired, Big Pharma’s shots were given to us by “God” and anyone who refuses them is not “listening to God and what God wants.”

Everyone, including children, must take endless covid boosters for the rest of their lives to fight fascism!
