Gabriel Nadales, author of the book "Behind the Black Mask: My Time as an Antifa Activist," joined BlazeTV host Andrew Wilkow to share his disturbing, yet all too common, story of why he joined Antifa .
Nadales explained that growing up he had two main sources of anti-American propaganda: media (Spanish networks in particular) and school.
"A lot of [Spanish media] stories are uniquely targeted to make Hispanics feel marginalized, and make it seem like Hispanics against America. And in middle school and high school, I had several radical left-wing teachers who basically told me to hate America," Nadales said.
"When you're bombarded with so many anti-American beliefs and sentiments, it's easy for somebody growing up in this country to learn to hate America," he added. "Eventually I joined the Anti-fascist movement because I was preconditioned to hate this country.
Nadales went on to explain that he believed "America and Neo-Nazis were one and the same" and how even concepts such as freedom of speech were conflated with fascism because of teachers who see themselves as "activists first and educators second."
