Florida School Shooter Nikolas Cruz is a Member of Antifa, Resistance Groups-Fiction!

Florida School Shooter Nikolas Cruz is a Member of Antifa, Resistance Groups-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz is a member of Antifa and has taken part in the “resistance” movement.

The Truth:

Nikolas Cruz doesn’t have any known ties to Antifa. There were also false reports that Cruz trained with a white extremists organization in Florida known as the Republic of Florida (ROF). Law enforcement has debunked those rumors.

After 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz has been identified as the gunman who killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14th, questions about his allegiances and motives surfaced almost immediately. Social media posts claiming that Cruz is a member of Antifa and “the resistance” went viral:

Nikolas Cruz was not a member of Antif, he was part of a white civil rights group attempting to build a white ethnostate in Florida.

Those rumors may have stemmed from the notorious politically incorrect, or /pol/, forum on 4chan. There, users scrambled to piece together a case for tying the gunman to Antifa, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) or other left-wing “resistance” groups in the hours after the shooting.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reportedly confirmed with a leader of ROF that Cruz associated with and trained with the white supremacist group while investigating those claims. However, Florida police later said that was untrue. It now appears to be a concerted effort to “fool” the media by a white nationalists themselves.

Jareb told the ADL that although Cruz trained with the group on at least one occasion, “ROF had not ordered or wanted Cruz to do anything like the school shooting.”
