That's the thing, despite efforts you can't cast them as one type. Anarchy is extreme right wing. Communism is extreme left wing. The fact that they are uniting against something(and notably energizing a lot of women to take to the streets which is an anomaly itself) says something. I'm not sure what.

It says that they uninformed/misinformed, and extremely hateful. The perfect ingredients for those who wish to radicalize people. These fools are no different than the radical islamic groups that deny people their rights, and target them for violence.

Well itís obvious why Antifa wear helmets and sunglasses and cover their faces in bandannas or other masks. They want to be anonymous while they maim, destroy and kill others , so they can avoid being caught and prosecuted. Plus for the ones that actually hold a job they can go back to work and continue to fool everyone as they werenít discovered in video or on the news.

But also demands by those who wish to outlaw such coverings are going against the notion of liberty they claim to believe in.

Also, like most bully type groups they are COWARDS and use big city Democrat leadership as their shield. You won't see them going out to small town USA to create violence and mayhem because they would get their *sses kicked, HARD.
I cant recall antifa ever coming to san diego. I do recall one Trump rally in 2016 saw the efforts of protesters to disrupt it diffused with a strong police presence. We have a fairly small police force with the lowest officer per citizen ratio of any big city in the nation but they are pretty quick to put down anything resembling a riot and the citizens support them.

Liberty to commit mayhem, yes you may want to hide your face and identity. Iím sure another automatic rehearsed response is on the horizon.

No they are not. Antifa would be more akin to uncle Joes Soviet Union than to the US military. Antifa is a leftist terrorist organization. They are far worse than.the proud boys. The proud boys are an edgy right wing group but they are NOT NAZIs. According to their own website they are not racist in any way. The media has labeled them as NAZIs but that does not make it true. The proud boys own website clearly lays out what they are all about.

Antifa should be labeled a terrorist organization.....that is what they are.

Would it confuse an Antifa member if he saw Redhats with anti-Nazi t-shirts?
