Elon Musk called a report on Antifa wanting to burn down Tesla “concerning.” The Tesla CEO responded to a Rebel News report on screenshots of calls to action. Andy Ngô, editor-at-large for the ThePost Millenial, shared screenshots of the calls to action by the now-suspended Twitter account @AshRedacted. The account posted links to Tesla locations and encouraged followers to add their own.
“Tonight in Portland! Every city, every town! Show up at your local Tesla dealerships in protest of Elon Musk!” one screenshot read with a photo of a burning Tesla. Ngô noted that the extremists wanted to get revenge on Elon Musk for suspending their accounts on Twitter.
Musk’s Twitter suspended the violent extremist and Antifa collective @crimethinc. The international group operates like ISIS: makes propaganda & training material to radicalize militants toward violence. Though the main account was suspended, they operate a dozen other accounts:
As revenge for Musk suspending violent extremist accounts on Twitter, #Antifa in Portland are organizing arson attacks on Tesla locations tonight.
This is just a drop in the ocean of years of violent organizing on Twitter.
The threats emerged after Musk began enforcing Twitter’s policies on harassment and violence fairly, leading to several prominent Antifa accounts being banned from the social media site.
And the threats finally came to reality late last night!
Last night next to the Tesla dealership in Lynnwood, WA, a suspect threatened police with a crowbar & said he would blow up the building. He then started a fire next to the propane tanks. No confirmed motive for the attack but Antifa had urged arson attacks on Tesla the same day.
Journalist Choe Show visited the area that was blocked off after a man barricaded himself next to a Seattle-area Tesla, started a fire & threatened to blow up the building. Antifa had earlier called for Tesla locations to be attacked wherever they are.

No mention of Antifa in the police narrative so far. But PIO on the scene said this suspect did enter Lynnwood Tesla dealership as well. Still under investigation.
Here’s the police report:
If you ask the mainstream media this is just a coincidence and we should only talk about Jan. because Antifa is just fiction!
