We’ve got Antifa on the brain today. It’s hard not to when they clog the news feeds with their douchery every week. Beating everyone you come in contact with has a way of drawing national attention. Naturally, the left comes to their defense every time they get their violence on and make asses of themselves. Just ask the swinging monkey jockeys over at Quartz. They’re claiming violence is strictly a last resort for Antifa. And Lena Dunham is the new Raquel Welch. See, two can play this game.
Since the tragic events at Charlottesville the American public has been grappling with the question of whether or not it is acceptable to use violence against neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
At the center of this debate, is a group of loosely organized protestors known as “antifa”, short for “anti fascist”. Wherever white supremacists congregate, a group of antifa demonstrators can be found nearby. They are known for their trademark black clothing and for hiding their identity, but most of all, they are known for the tactics by which they confront Nazis with.
I’m giving that last phrase a bad mark. Let’s try again, Quartz. “They are known for the violent tactics with which they confront ‘Nazis.’ Wherein ‘Nazi’ is defined willy nilly depending upon which way the dice rolled that Tuesday.” I added the last bit.
At first glance, it seems reasonable to condemn what are seemingly random acts of violence occurring on American streets.
Anti-fascist violence is fundamentally misunderstood. Dismissed as reckless and unnecessary, it is actually a last resort tactic that is born out of necessity and meticulous planning.
A last resort?
Violence is Antifa’s first and only resort. We even have firsthand, videographic evidence that show Antifa asshats giving tips on shivving Nazis and planning to pop off with “sawed-off-style shotguns.” Blood gets spilled everywhere Antifa prances like a bunch of skinny hoodlums. Skinny hoodlums with blades and guns. These aren’t the goings-on of a group that uses violence sparingly.
Also, those “white supremacists” Quartz mentions? That might as well be everyone in America who isn’t a leftist suffering from perpetually empty brain syndrome. Are you the type who thinks your tax rate is too high and people should be able to say what they want? Congratulations, you and Ben Shapiro are card-carrying Nazis. Prepare to have thy head bashed in. But hey, it was only a “last resort.”
