    The Antifascist Thread

    So, who are these folks, anyway ? I wanted to start a thread about this topic outside of posts in the TSPS.

    I had a hard time finding anything other than Trump-dog-whistling about how evil "antifa" is, but finally ran across this rambling, disorganized, group.

    It's tough to follow, but well worth looking at. They have some informative articles posted.

    You can find them on bookface as well, if you dare...

    Antifa just stands for Anti-Fascist. There is no governing body, no hierarchy, no CEO or President or Grand Dragon or Leveled Initiate.
    Just youth opposed to fascism.
    Anyone who tells you any different is trying to sell you something.

    End of story.

    "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."
    ---Jean-Paul Sartre

        Your hypocrisy and lack of self awareness knows no bounds.

          I already vented last week about how I feel about Antifa. I agree with Devil. These guys are nothing but outrage snowflakes who are offended at literally everything. I don't agree they should be ignored. These guys are terrorist and should be treated as such.

                California has bad case of stupid when it comes to Antifa. Much like the rest of country has a bad case of Proud Boys and White Nationalists. Extremists are vermin.

                    Nobody told me anything.

                    I'm not attacking anyone. Let's share information, see if we can get to the truthy part of the matter.

                    I too, am an antifascist, BTW.

                      Please refer to my many previous posts about your projection, hypocrisy, and lack of self awareness.

                        It's tough to ignore folks who get in your face, often obviously looking for a fight, at an event that is a legal exercise of 1st Amendment rights.

                        Doesn't help when the local police have a kid-gloves approach to either group, either.

                          It's the fascism of the anti-fascists that gets to me.

                          Terrorists ? Not yet, anyway, AFIK.
