‘Borat’ Director Encourages Left to Arm Selves Against ‘MAGA People,’ Goes All Wrong

Borat director Larry Charles shocked many when he went on a rant encouraging leftists to arm themselves against “MAGA people.” What makes this even scarier is this guy isn’t alone as he endorses Antifa “taking up rifles.” Well, immediately it went all wrong for the Hollywood leftist calling for violence against Trump supporters. You’ll love this.

Borat director Larry Charles took to Twitter Monday and compared Trump supporters — or as he described them, “Maga people” — to the violent, pro-China “triad” mob who attacked peaceful pro-democracy protesters Sunday night and essentially encouraged far-left agitators to arm themselves for “war.”

“After reading about armed #Triad thugs attacking pro-democracy protestors In #HongKong and the white supremacists/Proud Boys/Maga people embracing violence here I’m glad to see the left arming itself. This is war,” the longtime Curb Your Enthusiasm producer declared.

Charles, a prolific producer, writer, and director, linked to a Guardian article that detailed the desires of left-wing groups, like Antifa, to take up arms in order to protect events from “other malicious and potentially armed groups.”

“The far-left has largely refused to condemn the violent actions of its extremist groups like Antifa. ‘Squad’ member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) failed to condemn the self-described Antifa member who attempted to firebomb a federal detention facility in Tacoma, Washington, earlier this month,” Breitbart reported.

Rep. Ilhan Omar also refuses to disavow Antifa and their violence.

“Will you condemn the Antifa attack in Washington over the weekend?” reporter Keean Bexte asked Omar as she left a Monday press conference with fellow Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.

“It’s easy to condemn terrorism. Will you condemn it?” Bexte asked when Omar doesn’t respond. “Antifa firebombed a facility in Tacoma over the weekend — it’s an ICE facility — will you condemn them for that?”

Omar continued to ignore Bexte as he questioned whether Omar thought it was “laudable” to bomb an ICE facility if they are indeed concentration camps, as some have claimed. Bexte also told Omar her silence can be interpreted as approval adding, “It kind of blew up in your face when you didn’t respond about your brother.”

Trump supporters made sure Larry Charles knows he may not like what happens as he calls for violence against patriotic Americans.

“Hate to tell ya @larrycharlessism but we Americans are already armed & ready to defend ourselves. Its you lefties using violence so ask them to stop before more someone gets killed,” tweeted Col. Rob. Maness ret.

“Guys like this bear responsibility for the violence they’re encouraging. It’s the fascist left who’s violent, not the conservatives…but they will be when pushed,” tweeted Twitter user “Handiman.”

“When you have rotten bad ideas you need arms. We use brains cuz we already got our arms. You don’t want that fight jerk. Maga people are loaded for bear baby. Bring it,” tweeted “Catberger.”

The leftists refuse to condemn Antifa who are continuously using violent tactics. It’s getting so out of control that the Seattle Antifascist Action took it a step further and actively praised the attacker, calling him a “martyr” in a Facebook post last week.

In case you missed it, the attacker was caught trying to firebomb an ICE facility. Willem Van Spronsen who was armed with a rifle and several improvised explosives, such as Molotov cocktails, was angered by a “factually inaccurate portrayal” of the facility.

Van Spronsen reportedly threw his incendiary devices at the building, as well as at several vehicles in a parking lot, setting them ablaze. He also reportedly attempted to ignite a propane tank. Police responded with lethal force. However, it was not clear who fired the first shots.

“When our good friend and comrade Willem Van Spronsen took a stand against the fascist detention center in Tacoma, he became a martyr who gave his life to the struggle against fascism,” Antifa posted. “He was kind and deeply loved by many communities; we cannot let his death go unanswered.”

He was a domestic terrorist.

However, we can also blame the mainstream media and politicians like the “Squad” who lie about ICE and the Border Patrol painting them as Nazis. So we shouldn’t be surprised when we get idiots like this Larry Charles who wants to start a civil war. These leftist nutjobs better be careful about what they wish for. Conservative Americans are law-abiding citizens, but if attacked first they will finish what the violent left started. And it won’t be a pretty picture at all.
