Antifa member who ran violent Colorado Twitter account revealed to be 'furry' journalist

"I think a big part of me gravitating toward antifa was a substitute for the rush and excitement of being in the army. Pretty much everything we did was influenced by small-unit tactics and ranger handbook stuff."

The individual who created the Colorado Springs Antifa Twitter account which was suspended from Twitter on Saturday has been identified as a far-left furry, transgender activist, and former high school teacher who boasted of using their military experience to "f*ck sh*t up."

On Sunday, The Post Millennial's Andy Ngo tweeted, "Breaking: The #Antifa member who ran the violent Twitter account of the Colorado Springs cell of Antifa @COSAntiFascists /@COSAntiFa is trans furry activist/Colorado Times reporter @HeidiBeedle."

According to Ngo, Heidi Beedle was a reporter at the Colorado Times Recorder and a former teacher. According to Colorado's School District 49, Beedle was an "English teacher of the year" at Sandy Creek High School. However, in Beedle's own words, Beedle "tried really hard, but failed miserably," at teaching. 

Beedle also claims to be a former U.S. Army soldier, and bragged about using that experience in their violent activism.

"I think a big part of me gravitating toward antifa was a substitute for the rush and excitement of being in the army. Pretty much everything we did was influenced by small-unit tactics and ranger handbook stuff. It was fun to be part of a team and f*ck sh*t up again," Beedle wrote on their alternative account, @jsphnthsngr. An internet"> archive shows the tweet was part of a long rant on taking credit for creating the Antifa account.

"So I guess it is time to come clean. They are kinda right. You know what they say about broken clocks. I did start the @COSAntifa account, and the blog. I did my part to stem the rising tide of fascism, but I have been 'retired' for a while now," Beedle said. 

Ngo dug deeper, and found photographs of Beedle in a "furry" headpiece as well as blog posts complaining of being warned by school administration against the material the teacher was sharing with students.

"She was a teacher & wrote about how she politically brainwashed the students. She also wrote about giving a child a book that features kinky sex to celebrate trans month," said Ngo.

In one instance, a parent complained to the school about a comparison Beedle made between former president Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler. In another, the teacher shared a book with graphic sex scenes with a minor student.

After getting exposed, Beedle's personal Twitter page has turned private.

The move to ban the Colorado Springs Antifa account was prompted by Ngo's reporting on an Atlanta, Georgia faction of Antifa, who's members were recently charged with domestic terrorism and other felony charges.

"Their group is using Twitter to raise cash," Ngo tweeted along with the story, tagging Musk.

"Insane," the Twitter owner replied.

Ian Miles Cheong dropped in the thread, asking Musk if he would "consider setting up a dedicated task force at Twitter to deal with violent extremists like Antifa."

"Twitter obviously must be fair to all, so will aim to stop violent extremism being promoted by any group," Musk said.

The next day, the Colorado Springs Anti-Fascist account was permanently suspended. The "Colorado Springs Anti-Fascist," account promoted violence and stalking and was suspended after Elon Musk cracked down on violent groups. In the past, the Antifa chapter has called for the vandalism of pro-life pregnancy centers and directed its followers to target and assault their political enemies.
