FBI Arrests ‘Hardcore Antifa Leftist’ For Planning To Attack Florida State Capitol

The FBI has arrested a leading Antifa figure in Florida on charges of inciting violence, claiming that the self described ‘hardcore leftist’ has been issuing calls online to attack the Florida State Capitol on January 20.

Reports indicate that Daniel Alan Baker was arrested and charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure, after a string of online posts calling for another civil war.

The Antifa extremist also posted fliers titled, “Call to Arms January 20!!” that outlined plans to encircle any legitimate pro-Trump protesters using firearms and effectively trap and attack them at the state Capitol in Tallahassee.

“This is an armed COUP and can only be stopped by an armed community!” the poster is reported to read, as well as “If you’re afraid to die fighting the enemy, stay in bed and live.”

“We need ALL FLORIDA RESIDENTS to RISE UP!” the flier said, with a description reading “Here in Florida we must circle the terrorists who attack the Capitol! Let them take the capitol and fight with the cops. SURROUND THEM AND TRAP THEM INSIDE.”

“We will protect Capitol RESIDENTS and CIVILIANS from armed racist mobs with EVERY CALIBER AVAILABLE,” it also stated.

According to the FBI, Baker also posted clips on his YouTube channel (yes, he still has one) showing him printing out the posters, as well as using Facebook and Twitter to organise violent action.

Baker received a suspension from Facebook after the D.C. Capitol chaos, but as soon as it was lifted he posted “Death to amerikka of course, f*** the president, current and elect.”

criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida notes that Baker has a history of violent extremism, claiming those he opposes are White supremacists and fascists. He has called for killing U.S. military officers, following being thrown out of the army, and later seeking to fight alongside a U.S.-designated terrorist group in Syria.

The man latterly took part in Antifa anti-police protests around the country, including the infamous CHOP/CHAZ autonomous zone in Seattle.

Before the election, Baker issued a post stating “God I hope the right tries a coup Nov 3rd cuz I’m so f—— down to slay enemies again.”

The FBI also charges that in the days before his arrest last week, Baker attempted to buy firearms, including an AK-47 and a pistol.

The development comes after days of warnings that armed confrontations are being planned at state capitols nationwide ahead of the presidential inauguration.

Following the D.C. Capitol chaos, there is an expectation that Antifa and other leftist groups, as well as Q-Anon conspiracists, are set to once again attempt to stir up violence under the guise of being pro-Trump protesters, in an effort to further demonise patriots.

Even the likes of CNN have admitted that the Capitol “Siege” was likely planned in advance by leftist groups, and that some Trump supporters got caught up in the moment and went along with stirring up trouble.

Known Antifa and BLM agitators have been identified as spearheading the chaos, which has since been used by Democrats, the corporate media and big tech to usher in an unprecedented crack down on free speech and liberties.

Alex Jones and other prominent pro-Trump voices have called on legitimate supporters to stay away from the Capitols.
