Except that you are everything you claim to be against.

They call themselves antifa because Brown Shirts was already taken.

Question is, is Antifa antifa??
If you don't like what the Left today determines to be anything oppositional to their open-borders position, then you "all" are lawless violent thugs?

If you dislike this nation's democratic principles that allows a difference of policy opinions (if you can call the existence of functional borders a policy opinion - which is highly arguable), then why stay? There are better nations conducive to violent, politically-oppressive thuggery than the US.

That's like stating that the National Socialists just referred people who believe in nations and a degree of economic socialism. Or that they were simply anti-communists.

The literal definition of anti-fascist doesn't describe the politically oppressive and violent nature of Antifa in-practice, which rose to the level of homicidal extermination campaigns with the Spanish Control patrols that were a direct predecessor of modern Antifa.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Control_Patrols

Which in turn were an echo of the larger scale extermination campaigns of the Russian communists.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decossackization

You are intentionally trying to obfuscate your politically violent and lawless sympathies with people who have the capacity and will to mass murder.

Though I would argue that "fascist", on the Left, has come to mean anything to the Right of Lenin and Trotsky and therefore it is without legitimate applied meaning in today's discourse, you can be against something without aspiring to break the necessary laws that preserve our democracy.

As did the greater group of violent violent communists of which they have always been comprised, Antifa disregards the constraints of our democracy. Thereby working to permanently break it when we need it the most. That's who you associate yourself with when you associate with the historically mass-homicidal Antifa over the border integrity that every surviving nation requires.

Unhinged, often drug-addled communists at the fringe of society are no one's friend. You should pick your sympathies more carefully.

Why don't you just put "communist" in your public profile? It would be less verbose and perfectly encapsulate everything that you have there currently. "International communist" if you wish to be specific for the pedants.

Antifa has plenty of capacity for mass murder.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Control_Patrols

As does the greater communist movement of which they are a part.

Antifa works to suppress political rights and expression in this nation on common sense issues as simple as border integrity. Because they are anti-nation and thus anti-American. They are doing their part to instigate irreparable social unrest that will lead to more violence and possible civil war in the future. In fact, the policies that they support are putting ever larger numbers of politically incompatible groups in small geographic space. Policies that can only lead to conflict. Antifa is not innocent in today's dystopia.

Does he teach history and seem a little too obsessed with the Nazis and other dictators?

Exactly. I am proudly antifa, nothing to "admit" there...

If people hold certain views and are hence found to be fascists, why not fight them?
It would be irresponsible not to. Principiis obsta!
