Antifascism is just fascism by another name. Many on the left, who hate Trump because they say he's a fascist, love ANTIFA.... who are Anti-Capitalists and anti-Fascist... and who dress in black (like Fascists), to fight Fascists, by emulating fascist tactics: commit acts of violence, disruption, vandalism, and beat up anyone they don't agree with (like fascists). Nope, that doesn't sound like the other far-left movement called fascism, other than it is exactly like them, for the exact same excuses: you need them to protect them from people like them.

Basics

They say how they claim to love America and are just trying to protect it.... so why they are chanting “No Trump! No Wall! No USA at all!“:

It's becoming so clear now why the war of words between SJWs and the new white nationalists is so intense. It isn't because they have huge ideological differences -- it's because they have so much in common.

  • Both are obsessed with race - SJWs demanding white shame, the white supremacists are responding with white pride.
  • Both view everyday life and culture through a highly racialised filter. SJWs can't even watch a movie without counting how many lines the black actor has in comparison with the white actor so that they can rush home and tumblr about the injustice of it all. The White Nationalists do the same back, just with their colored people.
  • Both have a seemingly boundless capacity for self-pity.
  • Both are convinced they're under siege, whether by patriarchy, transphobia and the Daily Mail (SJWs) or by pinkos and blacks (white nationalists).
  • Both have a deep censorious strain
  • Both crave recognition of their victimhood and flattery of their feelings.

This is really what they're fighting over -- not principles or visions but who should get the coveted title of the most hard-done-by identity. They're auditioning for social pity. "My life matters! My pain matters! I matter!" The increasing bitterness and even violence of their feud is not evidence of its substance, but the opposite: it's the narcissism of small differences. The white nationalists are a reflection and backlash against black supremacists (BLM), BDM, LGBTQ and the success of other pity movements.

Paraphrased from Jonah Goldberg:
  • Mob bosses and gang bangers kill each other all the time.
  • The Spanish Civil War pitted two bad movements against each other.
  • Stalin killed more Nazis than FDR did, that doesn’t make Stalin a better man.
  • The quest for power routinely pits decent people against decent people, and evil people against evil people.
It doesn't matter if Adolf Hitler is worse than Stalin, Pol Pot or Mao, by some subjective or objective measure, if it was you or your family murdered by one of the latter. You aren't going to watch your wife get raped in a Gulag and think, "At least this isn't Hitler bad [as Stalin]!" The passing grade isn't relative to someone else, it's whether you're doing evil or not. So arguing that antifa goons are somehow better than the white supremacists is an idiotic argument. And who really cares? Is there a fainter praise imaginable than, “He’s a little better than a Klansman?”

Antifa Timeline

Main article: Antifa Timeline

Antifa is not this new thing. Basically, there was a progression that went like this.

  1. 60's radicals committed violence, but got arrested -- they continued this ever since with infrequent tantrums
  2. We elected a community organizer President who incited protests and outrage and identity (divisive) politics of victimhood and tantrums
  3. He encouraged outrage and got Occupy Wall Street to distract from the Tea Party
  4. He encouraged more vandalism and violence via fake outrage at "racism" (Black Lives Matters)
  5. The Democrats got caught paying/inciting these people to go be violent to Trump supporters
  6. Many of these Soros funded folks united under the Antifa banner
  7. The Press and Democrats recognized that people had gotten wise to their games, and was sick of the violence, so they pretended they had nothing to do with it all. Who are these bad guys, and where did they come from? They start creating a fiction about how Antifa is just this one group and that the blackbloc has nothing to do with BLM, DNC or Occupy (despite it being the same people, doing the same things).

Bezos doesn't seem to mind selling hate on Amazon. Well, left wing hate. They blocked history and the confederate flag as too controversial -- but antifa stuff was sold well after they proved themselves to be a domestic terrorist organization.

NOTE: I don't mind Amazon taking a neutral position and claiming "free speech" and selling offensive material from both sides. And I don't even mind them deciding not to sell offensive material -- as long as they are consistent with left/right hate speech. You want to block BLM, Antifa, Che, Chavez, China, BDS, SPLC and other far left hate groups equally with Confederate Flags, go ahead. As long as they're consistently free speech or objective standards, and I'm good with it. But the hypocrisy, of saying, "Confederate flags" are too much. But violence/revolution encouraging manifestos from the left are acceptable, now THAT I have a problem with. That's the danger of stepping in an playing world-police.

  • 2018.11.17 Marine Attacks - Two Marines were severely assaulted by an Antifa mob (severe beating) for walking through downtown Philadelphia. (They were presumed to be "White Supremacists).
  • 2016.11.13 College Park High School Teacher Punched - College Park (California) teachers were attempting to block passage to students from "nearby schools" who were on campus “recruiting” for an anti-Donald Trump protest, and one teacher was punched in the face.
  • 2016.11.12 Two Men Attack Trump Supporter in Meriden, Ct - Two male suspects (Wilson Eschevarria and Anthony Hobdy) stopped their car, got out of the vehicle, and began punching and kicking a man in the traffic island for waving an American flag and holding a Trump election sign.


Punch a Nazi:

Anti-americanism:

Violence is always justified (or rationalized) by the far left. Remember, Antifa is celebrated by Democrat politicians and the media, this is who they support:

Who were fascists? They wore black shirts and shut down their political enemies through violence and intimidation. And what do the antifascists do? The same thing under the guise of going after the true fascists.

Antifa was behind violence in Charlottesville:

Some people infer that if you're saying antifa is responsible for being asshats, that you're excusing the other side (who might be real nazi's, or just imagined ones). But that's not how the world works. I can think two groups of fascists fighting are both fascists, and be against them both. e.g. just because I think the Crips started a gangland war, doesn't mean I think the Bloods are innocent or good guys.

This is a pedantic look at antifa, and pretty good article, but not the complete story as it omits that they've been organizing BLM and others to come to their event. And there's many other groups that associate with Antifa -- so looking at the history of one of the groups is like looking at only one chapter of the KKK and ignoring all the others that did things that belonged to other chapters, related organizations, or came to their gatherings without being members. That's part of the story, but not the complete story.

Not sure I like the gloating tone about someone else's misery, but "experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted". She learned through experience -- and the best thing we can do, is share her story to others, to try to help them avoid the pain and suffering that often afflicts the naive and stupid:

The enemy of your enemy, might not be your friend. e.g. just because fascists are bad, doesn't make anti-fascists and thugs any less bad (or their victims, any less worthy of protection under the law):

Left wing feeds the right wing:

Not sure if they're terrorists:

Conspiracy theories

The series of events seems to go like this.

  1. Antifa attacks people they don't like (for like the 18th time in as many months).
  2. The LAT, NYT, WaPo, and other places were reporting it
  3. both RT and Alt-Right also reported it, and tweeted about it. (Alt-right playing the victims, and RT playing how bad things are in the west, as they always do).
  4. AHA! Looney alt-left blogger says it's all a conspiracy theory because both RT ("The Russians"), and alt-right pointed out the same violence. They must be working together, to invent what happened (ignore all the other outlets, and for God sake, don't watch the video of antifa actually attacking cops or beating people up: they're the good guys).

So, a bunch of haters beat people up, attack free speech and civil rights, and assault cops -- and it's all the Russians/Alt-Rights fault for "Skewing the narrative" because they noticed and retweeted it?
