After the recent arrest of the adult child of Democrat Rep. Katherine Clark for Antifa related crimes in Boston, people have been looking at the far left group and noticing that many of their members are young, white people from privileged backgrounds.

Why is this a recurring theme? What is it about Antifa that attracts this specific demographic?
PJ Media reports:
Turns Out the Atlanta Terrorists Are Children of Privilege
We’ve already learned that the vast majority of the Antifa insurrectionists who terrorized Atlanta over the weekend — and have occupied the future site of a public safety training facility for months — hailed from nowhere near Atlanta, but the more we learn about the Antifa criminals who attacked cops and did damage all over downtown Atlanta, we realize that these aren’t oppressed minorities rising up against the system.
It turns out the Atlanta terrorists are largely children of immense privilege.
Take, for example, the rather evil-looking Francis Carroll (whose name WSB misspelled below), the guy who allegedly lit a police cruiser on fire Saturday night.
Channel 2 Action News learned 22 year old Francis Carol was out on bond, while accused of setting an Atlanta Police Department’s vehicle on fire and vandalizing several businesses, Saturday night. https://t.co/CschOdexNU

PJ Media continues with other examples:
Carroll hails from Kennebunkport, Maine — yep, the same Kennebunkport that is home to the Bush family compound. And we all know that towns with compounds are always fancy. He’s the scion of a multimillion-dollar family that owns a yacht, and he lived in his parents’ mansion before coming to Atlanta to wreak havoc.
Over at the New York Post, Andy Ngo notes that Carroll “was among six people arrested and charged with domestic terrorism, aggravated assault and other crimes on Dec. 13 following a string of property attacks around the area, a carjacking and assaults on officers. They were all bailed out by activists who crowdfunded their legal defense using Twitter.”
And then there’s Serena Hertal. The Idaho native is a graduate of $82,000-a-year Pitzer College in Claremont, Calif. How has she made use of that high-dollar education? By facing charges of domestic terrorism, aggravated assault, and criminal trespass in Atlanta.
How about Ivan James Ferguson? The 23-year-old Nevada native is a clarinetist who performed with orchestras up and down the West Coast before throwing it all away to interfere with the safety of a city two thousand miles away. Ferguson studied at the swanky San Francisco Conservatory of Music, which should serve him well in jail.
We see this again and again.
Four of the six domestic terrorist suspects accused of trying to burn down parts of downtown Atlanta last weekend at an #Antifa riot have been denied bail due to being flight risks. The two given bail each had their $355,000 bail covered. #StopCopCity https://t.co/vvyIcfxuQQ
