It is well-known that Antifa are more anti-Capitalist than true Anti-Fascist (if there is such a thing). Antifa are funded by George Soros, a thoroughly evil man who wants nothing less than the destruction of the West: they are a lot more dangerous than the demented losers of the KKK and Neo-Nazis, because they have funding and a Marxist cause. The latter are racist bullies with no following in the general public, no credibility and no future. The best thing to do with Neo-Nazis and the KKK is ignore what they say, perhaps to mock their ludicrous ideas, and only come down hard on them if they break the law. The worst thing you can do is give them credibility by counter-protesting against them, or worse still, fighting them, being the first to commit violence, and validating their rhetoric.

Antifa’s Socialist beliefs actually give them common ground with the Nazis, who after all were National Socialists. Hitler’s Germany was a Socialist Dictatorship just like Stalin’s Russia, just with an anti-semitic racism mixed in. You hadn’t heard Antifa was Marxist? You must not get out much:

Marxists hide behind Communist Masks.

To claim that because they are anti-racist they are the “good guys” ignores the fact that they are anti-Government, anti-Capitalist, violent goons who seek out Alt-Right protests in order to initiate violent conflict. They say they are anti-Racist, but that is just to legitimise their violence and to recruit more soldiers for their cause. In reality they are anti-State, and want to destroy the establishment and enjoy a Socialist Anarchy, not too different from the Capitalist Anarchy favoured by the Alt-Right. Yes, Antifa have better rhetoric, the Left always does, but underneath the fine words they are just as evil as Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or Pol Pot. Why people still think Marxist Socialism is the answer to the World’s problems I don’t know: the 20th Century proved beyond doubt that Socialism doesn’t work, and that bureaucratic Central Planning can never replace the free market.

To the extent that Antifa supports armed resistance to the Trump Administration, they are far more dangerous that the Alt Right.
