Criminals and the mentally ill are used by the GAE Regime in three ways.
The first way is to physically threaten and attack Regime enemies and neutrals. This was best shown in mid-2020 with the multi-billion-dollar damage and the dozens of killings during the Floyd George riots. In this regard, Antifa and Black Lives Matter are the GAE Regime`s equivalent of Venezuela`s Colectivos.
The second way is to threaten and attack Regime enemies in the information realm. This was best shown since 2016 with deplatforming of Regime critics. "Cancel culture" is a manifestation of this.
The third way is to discredit Regime enemies by encouraging them to commit terrorism. This was best shown in the 2000s with mentally-ill Muslims being set up by the FBI. A similar pattern emerged in the 2010s with mentally-ill Rightists being set up by the FBI.
Antifa Mainly white Communists with a high proportion of mentally ill notably MIFs and pedophiles.
