"The problem was never Parler. It's Twitter." said Jason Rantz, a Seattle area radio personality and journalist who was able to successfully infiltrate Antifa.

Rantz, who has his own show on Seattle's 770KTTH radio, wrote an opinion piece that got picked up by Fox and published by them on Saturday, talking about how Antifa works to attack people who want to expose them.

According to Fox News, Antifa is acutely aware of them being filmed, and their people do everything in their power to make sure the footage never sees the light of day.

"... scouts look for perceived enemies filming faces. And they get help online," said Rantz.

"Activists monitor Twitter to see if anyone is in or around the Antifa marches, then relay intel to the mob via hashtags. The communication is not sophisticated. Nevertheless, it puts media members in danger and Twitter does virtually nothing to intervene," he added.

"About an hour into the march in Tacoma, Antifa knew I was present because I tweeted from the scene."

Rantz goes on to say:

"March with the mob and you’re bound to see someone recording Antifa destroying businesses or tagging property. They are immediately swarmed by two or three Antifa who threaten and demand the footage be deleted. If you talk back, you risk being pushed and punched or having your equipment stolen or destroyed."

"[Fellow journalist Griffin] Malone tweeted my photo and noted, 'Jason Rantz is also in Tacoma tonight recording crowds.' He denied that he meant me harm, he was just highlighting my coverage. That’s how he escapes Twitter consequences. But a screenshot of my photo, without a link to my Twitter feed, makes his intentions clear. He alerted the mob that I was 'recording crowds'. That posed a risk to the criminals that surrounded me."

Rantz made it out unharmed with no damage to his equipment, because he heard someone close to him in the black bloc mob say his name. He waited for 15 minutes before moving on, to avoid arousing suspicion.
