(Natural News) Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert stated that the attack on her office building was planned and led by the radical leftist group Antifa’s local chapter in the city.
“There is no question that there was a planned attack on our office,” said Schubert during an appearance on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle on Wednesday, September 2. “And now that we have more intelligence, we understand that much of it was led by Antifa.”
“There was that particular night, there were two separate organizations. The first one was a peaceful protest, which we all support, but the second we now know was organized and planned by Antifa, which is an organization that – their whole endgame is the destruction of democracy, and they’re going to do that by violence and intimidation and coercion.”
Schubert further said that, given the buildings that were targeted by Antifa – her district attorney’s office building and the nearby sheriff’s department – it was clear that their purpose was to destroy institutions that promote public safety and inevitably bring on capitalism and the downfall of the country.
If California’s own capital city isn’t safe from Antifa, then there’s little hope left for the solid blue state. Listen to this episode of the Health Ranger Report, a podcast by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger as he talks about the recent wave of wildfires gripping central and northern California, which were caused by a series of thunderstorms, and how they may be the wrath of God come down to Earth to punish the state for its left-wing evil.

Attack on DA’s office carried out by Sacramento chapter of Antifa
On August 27, before 9 p.m., a group of around 150 people all wearing dark clothing, helmets and body armor congregated at Cesar Chavez Plaza in Downtown Sacramento, several blocks to the south of the district attorney’s office right after that day’s peaceful protest against police brutality ended. The protest, and the subsequent riot, were organized as a demonstration in solidarity with the Antifa and Black Lives Matters who were rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Once the mob assembled, they headed north to the district attorney’s office building, where they immediately became very destructive. One group tried to start a fire in the office’s lobby, but police officers were able to respond quickly and put out the fire. The police department also reported several instances of vandalism on the office building.
They also harassed innocent people nearby. As they left Cesar Chavez Plaza, the mob had a heated confrontation with a biker. When they got to the Sacramento City Hall, they fought with several members of a Mexican-American veterans group who were paying their respects at a memorial.
An ABC10 news crew was blocked from documenting part of the evening’s events by a group of demonstrators who tried to obscure the visions of the cameras using umbrellas and strobe lights. One man even threatened a reporter. “I’m going to break your [expletive] camera in a minute if you don’t back off,” said the man.
The mob also damaged several other nearby buildings, including the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.
The next day, Schubert released a statement saying that the attack on her office was planned and led by the Sacramento chapter of Antifa, which she described as a “domestic terrorist and anarchist organization.”
“Contrary to the peaceful protest held earlier in the evening, Sacramento Antifa, along with outside Antifa groups, wreaked havoc on the Sacramento community, threatening media reporters and others, damaging many buildings and trying to set a fire in the lobby of the District Attorney’s office,” said Schubert in her statement.
She further warned that Sacramento Antifa was threatening to stage more attacks against the community in the coming days, and that her office will be prosecuting anyone who participated in the previous attack and will punish anybody who joins any future riots and demonstrations.
During her interview on Fox, Schubert announced her commitment to making sure that her office and their partners in law enforcement will do everything they can using all of the resources at their disposal to make sure that the criminals who attacked her office and the buildings near it.
She spent some time pointing out that, while the Sacramento Police Department spent much of the night of the riot letting the mob conduct their violence and trying to prevent the situation from escalating further, they were also collecting evidence.
“Anybody that understands our abilities, we’re going to do everything we can [to identify the rioters],” said Schubert. “If you left your DNA behind, we’re going to find it and figure out who you are.”
“We’re not going to be terrorized,” Schubert continued, warning of future threats of Antifa attacks. “They tried to post where they think I live on their own social media. This theme of intimidating by showing up to people’s homes has to end.”
