The website Antifa.com automatically redirects to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign site in what appears to be the work of an unknown prankster.
Social media users first noticed Anifa.com was redirecting to Biden’s campaign website in late August, and since then prominent supporters of President Donald Trump such as Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz have insinuated that the phenomenon proves that Biden is linked to the violent leftist movement.
But Biden campaign Digital Director Rob Flaherty rejected the notion that the campaign had any involvement in Antifa.com, tweeting in late August that whoever owns the website is redirecting to Biden’s page as part of a prank.
Biden denounced Antifa by name during an interview Monday, saying he condemns “violence no matter who it is.” (RELATED: Joe Biden Condemns Antifa, ‘Violence No Matter Who It Is’)
So Twitter has now blocked the site as a “potentially malicious” site.
