No, Left-Wing Activists Aren’t the Same As Fascist Thugs

Spain’s far-right Vox party began its Madrid election campaign with a rally in the multiracial working-class suburb of Vallecas, prompting clashes with locals. Media responded with a condemnation of the “twin extremisms” — showing how those who defend the poor and marginalized are falsely equated with those who abuse them.

I Was Antifa. I Am Antifa. I Will Die Antifa. | The Smirking Chimp

I’m not sure readers will be able read the meme I used to illustrate this piece, a list meant to clarify just what Antifa is and isn’t. [Editor’s note: large version here.] I don’t know who drafted that proclamation, nor do I know precisely for whom they presume to speak. They only partially speak for me. I, too, am antifa, though I don’t support some of the items in their list.

What is antifa and why does Donald Trump want to blame it for the violence in the US?

Members of an anti-fascist group in Cronulla at the anniversary of the Cronulla race riots.

But in the case of the George Floyd protests, right-wing attempts to blame everything on antifa – perceived by many to be predominantly white – evince a kind of racism that assumes that black people couldn’t organise on this deep and wide of a scale. Trump and his allies also have a more specific motive: If the flames and broken glass were simply blamed on “antifa” or “outsiders” – as if anyone had to travel very far to protest – then the urgency would shift from addressing the root causes of Floyd’s death to figuring out how to stop the shadowy boogeyman Trump rails against. Even if you disagree with property destruction, it’s easy to see the chain of events between Floyd’s death and burning police cars. Trump’s misinformation aims to mislead us all.

Almost 400 cities in EVERY US state join wave of protest over George Floyd death — RT USA News

Almost 400 cities in EVERY US state join wave of protest over George Floyd death

Trump’s excuse that Antifa is behind the mass uprising is just that a moronic excuse.(ODT)

A total of some 400 cities in all 50 US states – as well as in the territories of Guam and North Mariana Islands – witnessed protest actions over the weekend. And even though most of the rallies were peaceful, some American cities turned into real riot hotspots as angry crowds attacked police officers, who responded by firing tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters.

Donald Trump’s Antifa Bogeyman Has a Long, Proud History of Fighting Fascists

When the President of the United States says that he’ll be designating Antifa as a terrorist organization, a part of me thinks: well go on then, let’s see you try. Because this awful, foreign-sounding word “antifa” is only an abbreviation of “anti-fascist.” Organizations can be banned, but it isn’t so easy to do the same with ideas.

The alt-right is in decline. Has antifascist activism worked? | World news | The Guardian

 

Antifascist protestors marching towards Michigan State University where alt-right leader, Richard Spencer, addressed an almost empty audience on 5 March.

The alt-right appears to be falling apart. The Traditionalist Workers party disintegrated this week after a lurid interpersonal drama among its leadership. Richard Spencer says his alt-right rallies aren’t “fun” any more, and is rethinking his college tour in the aftermath of his fizzer of an event in East Lansing, Michigan, two weeks ago.
