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!

AntiFa assaulting home or candlelight vigil?

from The Gray Area:

A protest group called Shutdown DC, who by there own tweet 'are absolutely and unapologetically anti-fascists', went to Sen. Josh Hawley's home in DC last night, while only his wife and infant daughter were are home, to protest his position on election fraud.

Hawley says they terrorized his family.

They say it was a 'vigil for democracy'.

Which is it? Is the simple protest video accurate? Did Hawley's wife overreact? Was there more action than was taped? Can't tell from this. But if you know antifa, they don't participate in civil protest 'vigils'.

The important thing to note here is the nature of antiFa. AntiFa is one of the best examples of gaslighting & opposites in the media narratives and political debates. AntiFa are called anti-fascists, yet they attack people who are not fascist, using fascist tactics. Biden says they are just an 'idea'. Yet Shutdown DC is proud to take action in the name.

Beware of contradictory messaging on topics like this.
