And again you are confusing being anti-fascist with belonging to a group.

Not really. 99.5% of Americans are anti-fascist, and most of them don’t belong to any groups. So, I don’t see how I’m confusing anything.

As for your first point it clearly needs work as you are now saying any and all forms of self defence should never be practised.

That was neither stated nor implied.

“so you might want to hone your argument somewhat, introduce some nuance, and the discussion can continue.”

Absolutely not. The supporters of Antifa (and those who lean in their ideologic direction) AND the neo-Nazis (and those who lean in their ideologic direction) are the ones that want to introduce “nuance” into what is a rather simple equation.

The purpose of “introducing nuance” is to attempt to morally justify violence where it cannot be morally justified.

Sorry, not buying it. Probably nobody deserves a knuckle sandwich more than Richard Spencer (well, the noxious leaders of these Antifa thugs come to mind), but unless he swings first, he’s protected by law.
