Bullshit… antifa is not about classism it’s about standing up against nazism would you tell the jews not to fight back against the nazi’s or hitler?! wtf is you smoking… fighting back is the only solution they cannot be talked to or negotiated with. get it through your thick head.

  1. Antifa chapters run between anarchic communism and straight up authoritarian communism. All you have to do is read a few of their websites; it’s quite obvious — they’re not hiding anything. They want to end the US government and replace it with something more to their liking, and the “big enemy” they want to get rid of is the corporations and the rich. That’s textbook classism.
  2. Of course I wouldn’t tell the Jews not to fight back. But the analogy is flawed, becase (a) Antifa is not the Jews, and (b) the US Nazi’s have no power. In fact, all these people are are a small bunch of inbred malcontents that aren’t part of any political power structure. So, what are you fighting back against? Harsh language?
  3. So yes, if you’re asking me if there’s something that pisses me off more than the existence of Nazi racists with no power, the answer is yes, its an organization that has as its objective to end the United States of America and replace it with a form of government that has failed everywhere and anytime it’s been tried, and do so with violence. (That’s also why Pelosi, the WaPo, and other leading voices on the left are now walking away from these idiots. They’re on the wrong side of history.)
  4. Expressing support for Antifa the way you have means that you believe that your “cause” has no hope without violent vigilantism that operates outside of the rule of law. It means that you’ve lost faith in the political process, the police, the courts, the politicians, and unless Antifa “fights” for you, nobody is going to do anything to protect you. Is that seriously the position you want to defend? That NOBODY in the entire US of A power structure will defend you if not for Antifa?

That’s……not a great hill to be defending, bubbala.
