Friendly reminder that “ANTIFA” is short for “anti-fascism.” Fascism is a form of authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition. Y’know, the opposite of freedom, liberty, and independence. Fascism is a bad thing. Fight it.
Yes: there are shitty, problematic agitators turning peaceful protests into violent riots. The reason there are protests in the first place is police brutality. There are “very bad people on both sides,” but only one side is firing government-funded rubber bullets at citizens.
The fact that saying “fascism is bad” is a controversial stance is a real a canary in the coal mine for how scary the situation is right now.
