The Antifa movement, according to Wikipedia, is a conglomeration of autonomous, self-styled anti-fascist militant groups in the United States. The principal feature of antifa groups is their use of direct action, harassing those whom they identify as fascists, racists or right wing extremists. Conflicts are both online and in real life. Though AntiFA is supposed to stand for "anti-fascist", in fact these young bullies have taken on the appearance and tactics used in the 1930s by the fascist brown shirt hoodlums of Germany!

Anti-fascists & counter-protestors, you are right, there is no moral equivalence. You are worse!

from The Gray Area:

Members at a neo-nazi rally and the requisite counter-protestors of the resistance squared off this weekend in Newnan, Georgia. Once again, the debate rages about which side has the moral high grown. To me there is no question about moral equivalence, the counter protestors are worse, and potentially much more dangerous.

The little band of neo-nazi's in Newnan, 30 people, are and were of no consequence and no one wants to hear from them. It is only when their right to peacefully assemble and speak their hate is attacked, that a problem exists. And, it is a big problem.

There are many people I don't care to hear from; Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, Dick Durbin, the anti-Trump protestors in our streets, or the gun control teenagers, but I have to hear them. And, they have every right to spout their stupidity. I don't want to hear from the neo-nazi's either, but they also have every right to spout their stupidity. Everyone in this country has a right to make a fool of themselves. It only becomes a problem when someone tries to stifle the free exercise of our right to do so in this country. That is where the counter-protestors and anti-fascists (the name is the opposite of their real objective) are a big problem.

The counter-protestors, anti-fascists, college campus violence against speakers, anti-Trump protestors and other radical left activists in the Democrat party don't want anyone to speak unless they agree with them. If they do not agree with them, then they are labeled hate speech, not allowed to speak and must be physically restrained from speaking, if necessary. That is how the Communists took over Russia, the Nazi's took over Germany and the Fascists took over Italy, not to mention many other totalitarian and tyrannical governments. This is a very dangerous notion that is being justified in the mainstream media with glowing words like 'counter' protest against fascism, women's march participants, students against gun violence marchers and anti-fascist designations for counter protest groups. The truth is, these group's mission and the media support is to perpetuate the communist, nazi, and fascist concepts of speech and thought control.

We cannot be propagandized by this anti-freedom objective, let it go unnoticed or tolerate it as if it is of no consequence. By allowing anti-freedom groups and their media supporters to perpetuate this narrative, we will be spectating as the freedoms we enjoy are eliminated and criminalized. By properly identifying these anti-freedom groups (especially those using opposite sounding names and statements), we will retain our freedom.

So, to the anti-fascists & counter-protestors, you are right, there is no moral equivalence between you and the neo-nazis. You are much worse!
