I have never been threatened with violence bei antifascists because I am not a fascist.

I have however been threatened with violence by fascists because I am not a fascist.

And the Petersons are moneygrabbing opportunists.

For some reason I visualise "red herrings" whenever people spend a disproportionate amount of time attacking anti-fascists

I gave Jordan Petersen the benefit of the doubt for a couple of years but his agenda is very anti-intellectual

No thanks

What in the heck is wrong with being anti-fascist, anyway?

Some (easily found) background on right-wing provocateur Andy Ngo, for those wanting something more digestible than a 57-minute YouTube video and a self-promoting twitter comment:

Antifa and BLM protesters continue their reign of terror

The bulk of the media are whitewashing daily acts of violence committed by BLM and Antifa protesters despite abundant footage of attacks, arson, looting and property damage.

Quoting more Murdoch-owned and other right-wing media does your impartiality crusade no good at all.
And when you resort to quoting QAnon -style nonsense like this, as if it actually means something -

- it simply makes you indistinguishable from QAnon itself.

What is wrong with America being great again? The words stripped of all context are perfectly harmless and laudatory, but in context for what these words are associated with they're not good. Antifa is a terrorist organization the same way MAGAs have a nasty reputation for racism and xenophobia.

I don't know what they are, but they don't seem to be very good at fighting. If you're going to get up in people's faces, you might want to know what you're doing. s**t, take a martial arts course. Or at least watch a Bruce Lee movie.

Cornflake is trying to say there is no "they" as they don't exist as an organisation.

Antifa is a label thrown at a loose confederation of Americans who are sick of America's reputation as a haven for racists and xenophobes and are trying to do something about it. I don't necessarily agree with their methods but it seems rich to point out they carry weapons or cause destruction of public property especially after the capitol riots.

It makes me cringe and embarrassed when people on this forum ignore the MAGA crazies who allowed a nutcase to run the free world for 4 years but blame a small faction of leftwing people (I mean how many antifa people have been arrested?) for all the ills over the last 4 years who never harmed anyone.

The Reich-Wing Republicans needed a vaguely nebulous enemy that they can blame for everything wrong in America, so they chose a loosely-associated collection of individuals with no organizational structure and a general hatred of bigotry and nationalism to be their main bogey-man and whipping-boy.

They needed an enemy that is (1) so laughably inept that they can be ridiculed in every possible way, while simultaneously being (2) so adept at what they do that they are a threat to traditional Reich-Wing Republican values, which include racism, sexism, corporate ownership of government, military deficit spending, and the right to bear artillery against unarmed targets.

So instead of calling anyone who opposes Reich-Wing politics "anti-Fascists" -- and thus admit to the world that Reich-Wing Republicanism is indeed a Fascist movement -- they come up with the word "ANTIFA" as if it was an acronym for some obscure global criminal organization like "HIVE", "KAOS", "SPECTRE", or "SMERSH".

:roll: This is only one reason why I vote for "Anyone Except Republicans" in every election.

Kind of like a Freudian slip...except the idiots are saying it consciously
