Why is ANTIFA so white? They seem to have a diversity problem…but then again, Hitler’s Brown Shirts, and Mussolini’s Black Shirts were all-white too. The whole Anifa thing seems like a grotesque mixed metaphor–they dress like fascists, they wear masks like fascists, they act and attempt to intimidate like fascists, but, they are anti-fascists? So, they’re against themselves? And who are they fighting? All twenty white supremacist nerds? Don’t we all hate Illinois Nazis?
When you think about it, aren’t Antifa and Unite the Right kind of the same thing? A bunch of white, entitled, stupid losers with signs…except Anifa is more violent, and likes to burn and smash stuff, while occasionally beating up a member of the press.
My grandfather is a 96 yr old German. When seeing Antifa videos, he shakes his head and says; “We didnt think it could happen in Germany either. These people (Antifa) act and sound like the NAZI party’s Sturmabteilung. Stop them now or you’ll regret it.”pic.twitter.com/AK5ESYUFtF

As Vox’s German Lopez wrote, “The argument for antifa activists is that the current crop of right-wing protesters — which are partly but not entirely made up of neo-Nazis, KKK members, and other white supremacists and nationalists — are so extreme that they must be stopped swiftly and even violently.”
This weekend in Charlottesville and DC, though, it wasn’t neo-Nazis and white supremacists the antifa attacked. It was police who were there to help keep the peace among all the demonstrators and journalists who were there to cover the events.
How that factors into antifa’s ideology is anyone’s guess.
Last weekend in Berkeley, Calif., a group of neo-communist antifa — “anti-fascist” — thugs attacked peaceful protesters at a “No to Marxism in America” rally, wielding sticks and pepper spray, and beating people with homemade shields that read (I kid you not) “No Hate.” The Post reports how one peaceful protester “was attacked by five black-clad antifa members, each windmilling kicks and punches into a man desperately trying to protect himself.” Members of the Berkeley College Republicans were then stalked by antifa goons who followed them to a gas station and demanded they “get the [expletive] out” of their car, warning, “We are real hungry for supremacists and there is more of us.”
The organizer of the anti-Marxism protest is not a white supremacist. Amber Cummings is a self-described “transsexual female who embraces diversity” and had announced on Facebook that “any racist groups like the KKK [and] Neo Nazis . . . are not welcome.” The protest was needed, Cummings said, because “Berkeley is a ground zero for the Marxist Movement.”
As if to prove Cummings’s point, the antifa movement responded with jackboots and clubs — because their definition of “fascist” includes not just neo-Nazis but also anyone who opposes their totalitarian worldview.
Granted, these morons are hilarious and marginally entertaining, but at the end of the day, all is lost…it’s just hopeless. Comedian Ron White sums it up:
