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!

Violence Led to Arrests, Injuries in Wake of Pro-Trump Demonstrations

from The Wall Street Journal,

At least 21 people were arrested and numerous people injured, including one individual who was stabbed, authorities said, as left- and right-wing activists clashed this weekend in Washington over the results of the U.S. election. The violence grew out of a largely peaceful rally and march on Saturday consisted of a crowd estimated at more than 10,000 supporters of President Trump who traveled from around the country to support the notion that the election has been “stolen” from Mr. Trump ...

Groups of counterprotesters also gathered, though their numbers initially were small during the daytime march, and local law enforcement closed streets to try to keep anti- and pro-Trump demonstrators separated...

By evening, more anti-Trump protesters appeared at various spots around the city, along with some believed to be associated with antifa, a loose-knit network of far-left activists that has used violence to confront people they view as authoritarian or racist.
