Antifa is a far-left, “anti-fascist” and “anti-racist” political movement mainly focused in the United States comprising an array of autonomous groups that aim to achieve their objectives through the use of violent direct action rather than through policy reform.
While not new, they became more common following Trump being elected into power in 2016. The ideology is infamous for many thing ranging from vandalize property to joining the recent violent protests by doing far more harm than helping the already divided America.
Why It Sucks
- They are the most extreme variant of the already toxic SJWs. They end up doing more harm to not only to other people but also to the country of America itself.
- They’re one of the main reasons why the BLM movement has gotten worse, more violent, and has had their own reputation destroyed.
- Despite being anti-fascist, they never allow any conservatives or even liberals that don't agree with them in their group, which makes them extremely biased against Centre-Rights/Right-Wing.
- They even go as far as attacking conservatives or liberals by doxxing, or even worse, killing them.
- They take their hatred of Trump way too far. Even go as far as supporting a plan to stage the coup on Trump. Even if you don't like him or any other politician, there is a reason why democracy is here.
- Double Standards:
- They called out the KKK for burning people yet their methods are quite similar.
- Despite going against white supremacy they sometimes support black supremacy.
- Despite calling themselves anti-fascist, they support historically fascist methods like unprovoked violence and censorship.
- As far-leftists, they hate anything that speak for freedom and individualism that both liberals and conservatives agree on. Even most of the Antifa members are socialists, MAOISTS and DENGISTS.
- They can't handle opinions and views if one disagrees with them. They will make false accusations out of you being a white supremacist/nationalist without proof just like the far-left website Fundies Say The Darndest Things.
- They overuse the words "fascist", "Nazi" and sometimes "bigot" to refer to anyone who does not agree with them, to the point that the words have largely lost their impact in society.
- They worship communism and/or anarchism like a god and do not acknowledge its flaws.
- They are also eager to make the United States a communist nation at best or at worst a state of civil war.
- A lot of them want "black people to go back to slavery." For example, they generally treat black people as tokens for their anti-White agenda and believe minorities are always the victims, which is ironically racist enough. They will also condemn any minority who takes a right-wing stance.
- Believe it or not, the Democratic Party historically supported slavery and tried to force blacks to return to it. Which shows that nothing has changed.
- Their methods of "fighting fascism" border on domestic terrorism. They burn down buildings, and even outright kill people with no remorse.
- They, along with Black Lives Matter set fire to an apartment that supposedly still had people inside.
- And the mainstream media still defends them and hide their riots and terrorism under the guise of "peaceful protesting."
- Sadly, the United States Department of Homeland Security, despite overwhelming proof that the Antifa are doing damage to buildings and killing people, don't see them as terrorists.
- They usually only attack unarmed people and not in self-defense, which means even if they were to fight actual fascists, most of them would be insanely incompetent at it. On top of that they don't attack "because they're too scared" or "they're too violent" yet they are very violent and they attack people simply because they don't like them, making them hypocrites and also pure lazy
- In a protest at a Trump rally, one Antifa member indirectly sexually harasses a Trump supporter named Millennial Millie by asking if he could grab her genitals.
- They are so bad that even most liberals and center-left people despise them.
- The worst aspect of them is how powerful they are, even if they are a vocal minority of a community. Not only does the mainstream media defend them, but some online communities support them as well.
- Furthermore, whoever they vote for/support, they will betray later on.
- They were supportive of Biden, only to betray him.
- They are the among very reasons that American political systems, social systems and entertainment industry are into such discord that can hardly be abated. Them and the extreme Trump supporters/alt-right, conspiracy theorists and extreme Anti-SJWs, essentially keeping bigotry and corruption alive as well as disrupting the peace within innocent left and right wing groups.
- Their actions easily give more fuel for extreme Anti-SJWs, conspiracy theorists, and the alt-right to drive their bias even further, causing more division than mitigating it. Hate is to be fought with love and respect, not malice and intimidation.
- Along with the Proud Boys, White Pride, BLM, CNN and Fox News, they're one of the main reasons on why the United States is so divided.
The Only Redeeming Qualities
- As with BLM, the riots and nuisances they cause are more likely to red pill people and see how extreme members of the socialist/anarchist/fascist left is acting.
- The riots are also demonstrating why we shouldn't defund the police.
- At the end of the day, it is a loosely-organized movement, so the only idea at it's core is that fascism is terrible, and the things above come with a supporter's already existing biases.
