not a simple question. I answered yes because they are. but if you mean "some of the" certainly. if you mean "the only" then the answer is no.


ANTIFA is a facist organization that is utterly bad guys.
I could name others but for a starter, both these groups are the bad guys

Anyone who perpetrates violence against another human being is a "bad guy" or girl. Subjectively speaking based on experience.


bad guy
nouninformal
(especially in a work of fiction) a villain or criminal.

LOL. No. Antifa exists solely to combat fascist hate groups. They have no other agenda. When have you seen an antifa rally?

It's a shame you feel that way about the troops.

There's a phrase that I quite like in regards to the sort of evil of the average Nazi. It comes from a Jewish political theorist by the name of Hannah Arendt, who reported on the trial of Adolf Eichmann for The New Yorker and wrote a book on the subject.

The phrase is "the banality of evil."

The idea behind it is that, without a doubt, Eichmann was evil, but not in a particularly interesting way. He wasn't a sociopath, not really a monster. In fact, he was mostly just unintelligent, relying on cliches and peer pressure, more or less, rather than thinking about anything for himself.

I think that's most of these Nazis and Neo-Nazis we're seeing on the news right now. Same with the other end of the extremes, with the antifa people. These people are committing acts of evil, no doubt, but in the most mundane and uninspired way possible.

They define any group they don't like as a "fascist hate group". They exist to provide certain types of young people with a way to indulge their violent inclinations and feel self righteous about it.
