Most villains in movies, video games, and other forms of entertainment hide behind masks. The same is true of Antifa and most all their members when they demonstrate. Coincidence??? I don't see many conservatives or conservative activist hiding behind masks. Only fringe extremists like those who belong to the KKK, which is disavowed by most conservatives. I never see KKK or Neo Nazi apologists coming out to defend them the way leftists defend Antifa and their no good actions.

Trashy people defend antifa. Honestly antifa doesn't ever manage to engage proper fascists or right wingers.


The day that happens is the day they get mowed down by superior firepower. Best for them to stick to play fighting with the proud boys or random people on the street.





The left always forget which side owns the majority of the guns and advanced weaponry in this country. And it's not them. Their revolution will never come by force.

I'm not even really sure what the "antifa" really is. It gets mentioned around here often, but I don't see much about it anywhere else and I visit sites all over the Internet.

I have also never seen where those on the left are defending the antifa. I'm against extremism of any flavor from Trotskyites to white supremacists. The antifa is just one more boogeyman that the extreme right has made up to scare their sheeple into obedience.

Antifa is about as big a threat to America as "white Supremacists" and the KKK, or whatever "scare the minorities" meme the left is pushing to convince brown people that they are under constant threat and attack from scary white people in America today.

Judging purely by their actions, Antifa are the fascists.

Leftists with an authoritarian/totalitarian bent.


My favorite empty slogan in support of antifa is how "America fought a war to free the world of fascism..." so the implication is that antifa is good.




Meanwhile, everyone forgets we fought against fascism for about 4 years and fought against communism for decades. Yet the love affair with statism and socialism/class struggle persists among certain sets in this country.

There’s no leader is there?. They’re just anarchists?

Really?? As far as I know, the membership in the Communist and Socialist parties are minuscule in the U.S. Bernie Sanders doesn't endorse their form of politics, instead he and other Progressive support the same policies which are popular all over the developed world, like universal healthcare with private hospitals, paid for by Medicare for all. That's not Socialist or Communist.

Membership doesn't really matter. I can call myself an avowed communist and I would suffer really no social stigma in mainstream circles of media or politics.





Call yourself a fascist, however, and the result would not be the same.





Despite communism actually resulting in magnitudes more strife and death than fascism in the 20th century. I wonder if it's because the communists are examples of "good intentions gone wrong with predictable and repeatable outcomes"... while the fascists arrive at the same destination with no shroud of benevolent intentions.

We fought with communists against fascists. No matter how much we like to portray ourselves as the heroes that won the war, they did most of the work. Then we let the military-industrial complex go to town with the Cold War for no real reason. Nuclear countries are not ever going to have an all out war and if they do nothing will matter.
