I mean I could be wrong, but it looks like if they are against anti-facists then they are implying they are pro-facism.

They're not implying it.

So, what I'm hearing, is that after four years of Trump we need a rebuilding.

Republican messaging is always so accidentally accurate.

I guess I'm relieved there's enough left to be considered "rebuilding" and not "starting fresh."

Too many syllables for a bumper sticker.

PRO-FASCIST!

There ya go.

It could be a case of unplanned honesty or they didn't show it to an adult before publishing.

But clearly it says "Come help us fight those who appose fascism", could've been an SA recruiting slogan.

That's like saying that if you're against the DPRK, you're against Democracy and Republics.

"Antifa" isn't against fascism, they're against whatever they unilaterally deem to be 'fascism.' It's an important distinction.

No, 'antifa' literally means 'anti-fascism'. That's it. It's not an organized group, it is literally just anti-fascism.

If antifa set aside the anti and temporarily embraced the fa by rounding up their enemies, sending them to camps and killing most of them.

Perhaps the fascists would politely accept their fates, board the trains, then die quietly with the comforting thought world had finally accepted their viewpoint.

Then, once they're all gone, antifa can declare victory and initiate the consensual orgy of freedom with lots of international foods served and plenty of rap music playing.

The thing is the people that are screaming the name "Antifa" are the Trumpers.

They could have chosen to call them something else.

They are? Who are their leaders, how do you join, what's their initiation like, is there a guiding set of principals we can view? What do they 'unilaterally deem to be fascism?'

Good people on both sides of the Dover Strait.
 
2020-06-06 9:10:24 PM  
Antifa aren't even really showing up for Floyd protests as antifa, are they?

When Nazis are around, they show up real quick and you know it.
But this isn't Nazis, it's cops (we can quibble over whether there's a distinction another time).  So afaik they're mostly taking off their black bloc and throwing on a BLM shirt and going and finding a black organizer to follow.

I like how your distinction with ANTIFA is that there isn't any distinction... or groups, or label, or organization.

It's almost like they exist as an idea rather than as a group, and are used to either inspire fear in actual fascist idiots, or like you inspire trolls to be BSAB idiots.

I sure hope the keep the lists of who's donating.  It'll make the trials easier.

Antifa is the new George Soros.

Republicans are farking children. They can't be bothered to understand anything mostly nuanced, let alone complex. They just need this tangible boogeyman, and Antifa is it now.

They seriously think it's like farking COBRA or some shiat; this nefarious organization with an evil lair in an island, and uniforms and shiat.

Antifa is the new George Soros, though they link the two, which is the new Satanic Panic, which is the new Communists, which is the new Elders of Zion.

It's kinda farked up that they weren't more prepared for COVID19 because they've been fighting an invisible enemy for so long

While technically not incorrect, you now have the burden of proving that what Antifa deems to be fascism is really something else.

Better get started.

The GOP has come a long way in such a short time. I remember when they were vehemently against community organizing, and now they're openly pro-fascism.

LordJiro: No, 'antifa' literally means 'anti-fascism'. That's it. It's not an organized group, it is literally just anti-fascism.


Sounds great in theory, except:
A) There isn't a set definition of fascism that scholars agree upon
and
B) There is no active political group in the USA that describes itself as fascist

So, you have people fighting against a vague, amorphous idea that they make up as they go along.

Some people think Trump is fascist. Some think anyone to the right of Bernie Sanders is a fascist. While I'm sure you would be fine with people assaulting Trump supporters in the street, you'd be very uncomfortable with the idea of them doing the same to a Biden supporter.
 
2020-06-06 9:22:31 PM  
Anybody opposed to anti-fascist thought is by their own admission fascist.

This isn't a trend. This isn't new. It's not even your granfather's idea. It's older than Ancient Rome!

Every society has had its boots and its boot-lickers, too. And every time it ends the same way - people asking for better terms and being violently crushed by the ones with power.

Important distinction? We see one set of people peacefully protesting for more than legitimate cause and we see cops cracking heads and gassing these same Americans in scores of videos. That there's resistance to the headcracking cops ("Antifa" in Fox News circles)? I could give a shiat who is pushing back. It's not exactly a monolith.

Is it the "pushing back" that's angering you?
