You and reality are anathema to each other.

Let’s compare this to the new boogeyman on the right: antifa.

For starters, antifa has no leadership in the Democratic Party, none in Congress, none in any state legislatures, none on any city councils, and none in any other public or non-profit organizations. In fact, it’s hard to find any leadership for them, period. It’s almost as hard to find actual members. This is why the right has to fake interviews with antifa activists, fake pictures of antifa violence, and create a fake secret antifa manual.

This doesn’t mean that there aren’t occasionally a few protesters who use violence as a response to Nazi marches. What it does mean, however, is that there is no equivalence between the “alt-right”/white supremacists and antifa. The equivalence is used as a means of justifying what we’re seeing in this poll—the 22 million neo-Nazi/white supremacy supporters.

To put this in perspective, let’s assume for a minute a huge number of antifa members. Let’s say they have 100,000 members, even though it’s hard to find even a single chapter in the United States with more than a few members. Compare this to 21.85 million supporters of neo-Nazism/white supremacy.





Supporters of neo-Nazism/white supremacy compared to an extreme estimate of Antifa members

Even if there were 100,000 members of Antifa, this is what they would look like next to the 21.85 million people who are saying that neo-Nazism and white supremacy are acceptable.

Yet much of the “liberal” media is covering these two groups as if they’re the same.

One is largely made up: it has no power, no real membership, and no organization.

The other has millions of supporters, helped elect the current president, has its own news platforms, and has members in the president’s cabinet.

We don’t hear about the greater risk of terrorism in our country from far-right extremists. We hardly hear about the FBI thwarting a 3 Percenter who tried to bomb another building in Oklahoma City.

What we hear about is something on the “left” that barely exists except in right-wing media. We hear false equivalency used to justify and obscure facts like the support for neo-Nazism and white supremacy.

Exactly. They should be ashamed that they can be manipulated so easily. Before Charlottesville, the term "antifa" was not on the tip of any posters tongue. After Charlottesville, when the Alt-right sites began to create their false equivalency meme, your average right wing poster cannot get through a post w/o mentioning the evil antifa. I can go to the corner pet store, buy a parrot, set the parrot down for an hour in front of a television tuned to FOX News and that parrot would be able to achieve an equivalent amount of independent thought that we see on the right with this phony antifa meme. It is simply pathetic.

The whole "antifa" meme is an exercise in creating a gray area. It will not be successful though.

You lie.

Go up, click on the search button, type in "antifa", then search.

You are a liar.

It is unfortunate and disingenuous that you fools cannot acknowledge these groups. They (antifa) have not been around for years, but decades though what is "antifa" today is in no way what I knew them as in the 90s or even the early 2000s. The same w/ blackbloc. Though BAMN and BLM have evolved on their own, I believe that they are what has become of "antifa"


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

Supposing that your numbers are correct, what does that have to do with protecting free-speech? Does a body count make the radicals on the Left any less radical?
