Black-clad antifa members attack

 

Same thing happened in 1920s - 1930s Europe, the rise of fascism led to anti fascist protests, sometimes violent. The Spanish Civil war was a rebellion against fascism.

 

We're seeing the same thing around the world now, including the USA.

 

Needless to say it didn't turn out well for the people resisting fascism in 1920s - 1930s Europe.

I called the Israeli embassy and asked for their opinion on how to deal with Fascists.  They were very, very concerned about taking away the free speech rights of Nazis.

Their faces hidden behind black bandannas and hoodies, about 100 anarchists and antifa— “anti-fascist” — members barreled into a protest Sunday afternoon in Berkeley’s Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park.

Jumping over plastic and concrete barriers, the group melted into a larger crowd of around 2,000 that had marched peacefully throughout the sunny afternoon for a “Rally Against Hate” gathering.

You're quite correct. The anti far is a much bigger movement than the right-wing hate groups and agrees with most of the country. But in the end mark my words since around 1920 this government has always put down left-wing demonstrators and let the right-wing haters go. You will see it again as the anti far as a popular movement grows. You and I and a majority of Americans agree with their goals but for some reason a fascist will win in the end. Look at the people's movements in the early part of the century and the 60s they were popular most everybody supported them but the government stepped in and put them down in the name of saving capitalism. Many of these organized groups no longer exist despite their popularity.. hopefully the antifa will remain a loose Confederacy with no real specified leader and we will see them around for a long time.

So it begins.
