It turns out that they are private "security" military contractors.

Or maybe just start taking anti psychotic meds. In the old days, hysterical teenage girls blamed their hysteria on  demons and witches.
Today, it's "Antifa".
It's kind of telling that people are paranoid of people who are defined by opposition to fascism.
Kind of like dope dealers who see cops everywhere.

No.  We're just finding out that conservatives are by their very nature authoritarian fascists.  IOKIYAR.  They're not misunderstanding it.  They're not not seeing it. They know.  They're just pretending otherwise while they still 'have' to. They're literally in favor of it as long as they're the ones in charge.  They existed prior to and during WWII, they still exist, and every time they manage to twist the rules to win a democratic election their only thought is how they can bend, twist, and manipulate the laws to make sure they don't have to pretend any longer.  They have literally announced on multiple occasions how they want a super majority so they can rewrite the constitution and make the theocratic dictatorship of their dreams.  Stop not believing them about that.  It's the literal goal of their literal fascist dreams.

How would we do that? No other country will let us in right now because of our country's handing of COVID-19. We're persona non grata in most of the free world.

Either you have no idea who or what ANTIFA is, or you support fascism?

Who is defending antifa?  The FBI?  DHS?  By saying they didn't start the fires?  Thats just a fact.
What has "antifa" (the totally real organization with well organized group that is definitely financed by soros) done?

Snapper Carr: paygun: Antifa doesn't exist.  Anyone who claims to be Antifa is a white supremacist.

It is a loose association of autonomous groups along the spectrum of left wing politics - from progressive Democrats to anarcho-Communists.  Their sole binding principle is this:  fascism is bad and must be met with direct action.


That doesn't sound "left wing" at all.
Or maybe.... "left" and "right" are meaningless terms.
And everyone should be against fascism.

[Fark user image image 425x283]
[Fark user image image 259x194]


people come together over an idea.

The idea is "fascism bad."

They may get together through a hastily put together facebook invite.

But they're not a group per se.

There are no leaders.

A counter protests of antifa could be made up of anarchists, dem socs, commies liberals, tankies, middle class suburban soccer mom neo liberals, etc.  And they feel the biggest threat to democracy and freedom is fascism and outside of their counter protest they don't associate or even may outright hate eachother but are willing to put aside their differences for the time to go against fascism.

So yeah, antifa exists, but not as a group.  And they dislike eachother's politics some to the point of literal fighting.

It's as organized as trees deciding to change colors during fall.  Which is to say it isn't because trees don't decide anything... they're trees.

Anyone who fights against fascism, including people who tell idiots online that, in fact, hitler was not a socialist is an antifascist and is partaking in antifa activities.  They may never have spoken to another "antifa" in their life.

Antifa is an ideal that people come together for not a group.

I don't understand how hard it is to get this through to people.

Well I guess propaganda is doing well enough for people that want to eat it up and to make enemies of their own neighbors.

you do realize we are 3 republican investogations into the investigation and have found that Russia, was in fact, farking with the elections in each and every investigation of the investigation... right?  Or did you take it from the White House's mouth instead of actually reading the reports?

They probably didn't win the election for trump, but they certainly did help... and the last investigation, again by the REPUBLICANS, stated that fact.

We're all sheep but he just takes word from White House mouth pieces that say it didn't find anything despite the republicans investigations found the opposite.

It's like Barr's reading of the Mueller investigation where people just parroted what he said despite the report stating different.

But we're the sheeple... you know.
