Remember Antifa? You know, the leftist mama’s boys who dress up like homeless ninjas and beat up conservatives? Yeah, they’re still prowling around in their ski-masks, dispensing their general douchebaggery upon any non-leftist who crosses their path. There’s a new development on the anti-fascist front. Antifa has come up against a new arch-nemesis. A group of opponents who share their childish penchant for playing dress-up…
Even in the once pure and idyllic furry community (people who dress up in plush animal costumes and sometimes have sex in those costumes, although furries will say that is not the point of the fandom) the press is giving credence to a rise of furry Nazidom.
The issue at hand, making headlines from the Denver Post to the The Daily Beast was the cancellation of the Rocky Mountain Furry Convention, a gathering of about 1,600 furries going back annually for 10 years.
The event was cancelled after back and forth “threats” made on Twitter by antifa (anti-fascist) and an anonymous person who were considered “credible” by the police, which resulted security costs of the event to skyrocket to around $22,000. Antifas are known for their strong arm tactics and their willingness to use violence to “stop fascism.”
If you’re willing to use violence to “stop fascism” but the “fascism” you’re stopping are simply people who have an opinion you don’t like, newsflash: you’re the fascists.
The Furry Raiders wear arm bands that some consider Nazi iconography, but their leader, Foxler Nightfire, denies the arm bands have anything to do with Nazism. Foxler (who is gay and half asian) is also criticized for his Nazi-like outfit (a black collared shirt with a red tie) which he says was inspired by Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong.
“My armband does not have a swatstika, its a paw,” Foxler said on the phone.” And if you want to be technical its not turned 45 degrees.”
The Furry Raider armbands are not exclusively red either and come in multiple colors.
Funny how Antifa finally managed to find an adversary just as pathetic as they are. At least it would be an even fight. Fighters from both sides would reach the
soccer field sacred battleground in their moms’ vans. The Antifa guys would unsheath their wooden sticks, the furries would break out their knitting needles. Then, they fight to the death! Or until their moms finish talking with the other moms.
Don’t lie, you know it’d be a delight to behold.
Oddly enough, when you first hear the tale of these human stuffed-animal (alleged) Nazis, the Nazi part is the least strangest aspect of the story. I never thought Nazism could be reduced to a detail on the scale of zero to straight-jacket. In the age of trans-cats and dragon-people, Nazi Beanie Babies aren’t that far out.
If one group of idiots wishes to do battle with another group of idiots, okay. Some advice to the Antifa crowd: Shutting down people who disagree with you? Not cool. Unless you shout them down with pig-latin. Using violence to achieve that end? Even less cool. Unless your violence includes brightly colored bubbles.
Even if those furry creeps are praying to Hitler-as-a-gopher, they’re allowed to do so. Also, beware your enemies. You wouldn’t want to awaken the Stickman from his slumber.
