‘Antifa, message from the lieutenant governor…’
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) shared a strong warning for Antifa in the wake of the tragic mass tragedy in El Paso Saturday.
“Clear message to Antifa: Stay out of El Paso. Stay out of Texas,” Patrick told Fox News.
Saturday’s tragedy came one month before Antifa groups planned to converge on El Paso as part of a “Border Resistance Tour” for a “10-day siege” where violent Antifa activists would participate in military training.

“I was looking at a story recently I just saw in the last couple days where Antifa is posting they want to come to El Paso and do a 10-day siege,” Patrick said on Fox News. “We don’t need them coming in on Sept. 1.”
“We didn’t need them to begin with before this happened,” he added. “I would say to Antifa: scratch Texas off the map and don’t come in. It’s not the time and place for them to come at any time, but particularly in aftermath of what just happened in El Paso.”
“So, Antifa, message from the lieutenant governor: stay out of Texas,” Patrick said again.
