Anti-racist is a code word for the replacement of white people with non-white people.
Chicago officials say a violent melee in a suburban restaurant Saturday afternoon appears to have been the work of radical protesters targeting suspected white supremacists, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Witnesses said up to 18 young people wearing hooded black jackets wielded metal bats and hammers against a group of 12 to 20 diners at the Ashford House Restaurant in Tinley Park, Ill. Ten people were injured, three of whom were hospitalized.
Police had said Saturday the attack did not appear to be a random act of violence or related to the ongoing NATO summit protests in Chicago. Instead, law enforcement said the assailants seemed to target the group, all of whom were visiting from out of town.
On Sunday, Mayor Ed Zabrocki told the Tribune that police believe the attackers were from a group called the *Anti-Racist Action [LINK], which describes itself as being “on the front lines of the struggle against fascism and oppression.”
The group took credit for the attack in a posting on its website, claiming it had disrupted a white nationalist meeting:
