I have been an anarchist for a long time, silly.

That is the point i was/am making. They "were" anarchists and have been prevalent in the community as long as i know.

These trustfund babies now flying the red and black are demonstrating extremely authoritarian ideals. I wouldn't call them anarchists. Then again i don't think that even they truly know what they are doing. They are useful idiots.

I believe the point of Skew's post zipped over your head. AND before you get your boxers in a twist let me assure you I do not support any type of violence at these protests.
So here are some facts for you to consider. 1) Over 75% of Democrats think Trump is a racist. Why? Well, he has cabinet members/advisors who subscribe to that particular venue. Trump himself has made comments suggesting his racist views. His campaign contained facist undertones and encouraged violence. 2) Antifa has been around a long time, is loosely organized, small in numbers, and has NO political sway at all. When Facism withers--so does Antifa. They are a bunch of punks who like to look scary and disrupt speeches, join protests and incite violence....but then....so have other groups. 3) When white nationalists take the streets it's a no-brainer that Antifa will show up.

I'm actually surprised that you, Sabcat, don't support Antifa. Afterall, they are basically anarchists who place little faith in the state--which they consider complicit in fascism and racism. They prefer direct action AND violence if civil disobedience doesn't work. They are young, angry and seek their right to free assembly.
Groups like Antifa will always be on the periphery. Get used to it.
Thanks from RNG and Camelot
