Donald Trump, GOP lawmakers and the Conservative media have been talking about Antifa for weeks. Right-wingers have blamed the movement for most of the violence that has occurred during George Floyd protests. There is, however, very little evidence to support their theories.
Right-wing agitators, though, have been arrested. Steven Carrillo, a member of the Boogaloo Boys, was arrested for murdering a police officer last weekend. And Zachary Sanns, a former Marine with a Nazi tattoo, was recently arrested for impersonating a police officer during a Black Lives Matter rally in Las Vegas.
Chase Stevens, a Nevada-based photographer, had first noticed the man on May 31st. He tweeted a picture, writing, “Pretty sure this federal agent has an SS symbol on his arm.”

That man has now been revealed a Zachary Sanns. The Las Vegas Journal Review writes:
“A formidably armed man with a Nazi tattoo who tried to march alongside police at a Black Lives Matter protest in Las Vegas is facing a charge of impersonating a federal officer. Zachary Sanns was spotted at a rally that moved along Fremont and 7th streets late last month, wearing plain clothes, a tactical vest, a ballistic helmet and night-vision goggles, according to a federal complaint filed this week.”
Sanns came to the rally wearing technical gear and sporting an AR-15 along with a glock pistol. He also drove to the event in a Chevy Tahoe with blue lights mimicking a police vehicle.
