Despite antiseptic portrayals throughout American media, Antifa are more than ‘anti-fascists.’ Antifa provide the violent complement to academic neo-Marxism.

In the immediate aftermath of the Charlottesville violence, several prominent figures—including CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic—equated left-wing “Antifa” activists with the thousands of Allied soldiers who stormed Normandy’s beaches to invade Adolph Hitler’s “Fortress Europe” on D-Day.

A more appropriate equation would be with the thousands of soldiers in the Red Army, who brutally marched toward Berlin, where they would establish Soviet hegemony in the so-called German Democratic Republic after defeating Hitler.

Communism is not alive in America.

Communist sympathizers, who are ignorant of history and cling to a shallow sense of communist ideology, are alive in America. You may as well look at a Neo-Nazi and declare that fascism is alive in America. It is not.

But we are Americans. We choose to be "outraged" over everything and anything and exaggerate issues into a political mess for the drama. We are quickly starting to look like the silly French.

ANTIFA may or may not have communist sympathisers among them.. but frankly that is irrelevant. Communists and anti-Facists branded together once to battle the Nazi threat and if that is what is needed yet again to purge Nazi scum from society, then so be it.

What we should be asking is.. why is it the usual suspects on these boards and on the American right continue to attack ANTIFA, but ignore the Neo Nazi scum?

ANTIFA would disappear if there was no reason for it to be around.. but there is, as we see on a daily basis. That should be the focus, not ANTIFA or similar people who fight Neo Nazi scum.

That some morons are doing this, does not make them ANTIFA.. and who is accusing them of doing this.. the usual right wing media. Look at what happened to Occupy Wall Street... it is the exact same thing that the right is doing to ANTIFA.

Why is it that the right is not doing this to the Neo Nazi Scum and its allies? No those they defend... strange no?

Nah. Communism isn't alive in America.

That must sadden your fellow Marxists.

This is exactly what I have noticed. And, according to documented history, this is exactly what happened in the past.

ANTIFA would disappear if there was no reason for it to be around.. but there is, as we see on a daily basis. That should be the focus, not ANTIFA or similar people who fight Neo Nazi scum.

ANTIFA is a consequence of today's extremist mood. It wasn't a household name prior to the alt-Right's bold attendance at Trump rallies and the appointment of Steve Bannon as Trump's Chief Strategist in the White House, which legitimized the alt-Right's political voice. Prior to this, ANTIFA's purpose for existing was largely just about insignificant communist dreams from the shadows. But because Conservatives have been manipulated into absolutely detesting "the left," they ignore the filth driving this mess in their own Right-wing yard. It has truly become a right-vs-left world for most of them, who chose to ignore them as they cheered for the same Presidential candidate.

ANTIFA fights neo-Nazi scum by creating enough havoc to prevent any non-liberal speaker from speaking on college campuses? ANTIFA must have a reeeeeally broad definition of neo-Nazi.

Why would you say "Nazi scum" and not also "Communist scum" as well? After all, Communism has killed more people than the Nazi did. I see where your sympathies are.

ANTIFA has allegiances with communism. ANTIFA has allegiances with socialism (and not capitalism). Is ANTIFA's goal to stomp out capitalistic scum as strong? I think so.

Hog wash... this right wing talking point that communism has killed more people than anything else is bull****.

Nazi ideology killed 10s of millions in war and their ideology was based on race and religion..

Communism did not. Now did China under communist rule have massive famine and death.. yea, but that happened every few decades in China, so frankly it was nothing new. In fact, one could easily argue that previous famines in China caused far bigger death tolls relative to population sizes than what happened under the Communists. Also if you bring in the Soviet deaths... well, sure, but again what do you attribute to communism, war or civil war?

Now I hate communism and would love to blame them for everything, but that would be harsh. In reality the British Empire, Spanish Empire, Christian Church and others also killed off millions but funny how no one talks bad about that. Did you know that the British Empire let 2 to 3 million Indians die of starvation (conservative estimate) in 42-43? Of course not, cause you know.. they be British.

But lets look at the British and their time in India.... 50 million at least died of starvation.. just saying.

I do as well. Unfortunately, neither will be completely wiped out without basically turning into something similar to both of them.

It's not your fault. It's the education system that has blinded you to the realities of communism.

Mao killed tens of millions of people, more than Hitler. Stalin and communist Russia also killed tens of millions of people. The Khmer Rouge killed approximately 3 million.

ANTIFA are pieces of ****, but they are not communists. Communism is ownership by the government and they don't want that either. You are really throwing our ignorant comments today about terms like "Marxist" and "Communism". All you are proving is you anything about either of them.

ANTIFA will not disappear until the US is gone, that is their point, they think that the US is fascism. Internationally ANTIFA is opposed to every government in existence, since they view every existing government as fascism.


You should really learn about ANTIFA, who they are and what their goals are. Given how far left ANTIFA is, everyone else to them is far right extremists. The includes the entirety of normal left-wing politics.

Antifa can barely articulate its demands and goals. The current American version of it is just a bunch of douchebag thugs looking for fights and trying to be intimidating. They usurped the name Antifa because they thought it sounded good and gave legitimacy to their thuggery. Some claim to be anarchists or communists, but they barely understand the world they call for.

ANTIFA itself is not extreme left or right, they are a leaderless organization. I've see comments from them that go from anarchy(usually the violent ones),advocating for pure socialism, advocating for mild things like fair wages and then full on fascism. It's like trying to label the "tea party" one thing when they weren't.

There's been a communist party in America since 1919.

If there were not windmills to tilt at, they wouldn't be around. Their sense that society somehow needs them as the thin, jackbooted, balaclava-clad line is way overblown and frankly, psycho.
