Too late. Their Frankenstein now is running wild. Should of done that a long time ago.

No, give them a one way ticket to North Korea and have them tear down the statues of Granddaddy and Daddy Kim.


I like to think of them more as the "Monster of the ID" from "Forbidden Planet"

This is pretty simple actually. Either you support fascists (White Nationalists/Neo-Nazi's) and their ilk, or you don't.

Claiming that Antifa (for whatever cherry picked bit of press you choose to levy against them) is the real evil here is asinine. Is there anyone here who thinks those united against fascism are worse than the fascists? Is there anyone here who is brave enough to just come out and claim their fascist tag so you can stop tapdancing around what you're clearly showing to the rest of us?

Now we know what Mr. Noodle's day job is:

As for the rest of this, is it any surprise that Berkeley is refusing to cancel the free-speech event, citing no legal right to do so?

My ass.

I thought people were saying that the Mayor was part of Antifa?

Narratives breaking down, Fake News and Alt-facts


Politicians are a fickle bunch, all that beating of innocent people caught on camera tends to turn them off because reelection is a real thing for them.

Antifa = fascism, proven by their bloody beat downs of political opponents. Go dangle a Trump hat on a stick and watch them go into a frenzy of criminal activity.

I think the "Mayor" is throwing out a red herring.

He supported them before didn't he?

I bet there's some lawsuits hitting the city.

Fascism is ultra nationalism. So I would just say they are anarchists.

For simple minds, sure.

I mean, if they are acting like facists themselves, then they are no different. Who are the facists that these so called Antifas are fighting?



 Is there anyone here who is brave enough to just come out and claim their fascist tag

Yes, I am a facist. Is it safe to come out yet?

You are an amusing character.

Of course Antifa are not fascists. They're a violent political movement whose ideology is centered on anarchism (destruction of the state, presumably society with it) as well as a particularly racist and sexist interpretation of modern progressiveism.

The white supremacists don't really exist, but if they did they wouldn't be Fascists either, nor would the Neo-Nazis. Fascism is actually a specific ideology created by Benito Mussolini.

Labelling your opponents as being Fascists regardless of what they actually believe is lazy at best. It's mostly done to draw a comparison to the Third Reich, A state which adhered to National Socialism (they weren't actually socialists) as opposed to Fascism.

TinfoilTP isn't a Fascist. Not from what i've seen anyway.

Your fake label is cute, can't wait to vote for Trump's second term just to twist your undies a little tighter.

Yes we get that you support Antifa, the real fascists of today who are acting out as real fascists by beating all who harbor a non Left political viewpoint. NeoNazis are just dumbasses who are not supported by any political power in this nation, they are a red herring excuse for Antifa to go out on the streets in their masks with weapons to attack Trump supporters.

Fascism is ultra nationalism. Using boogeymen, someone like Erdogan is a fascist.

The white supremacists are as real as antifa and they are technically a form of fascism.

Radical authoritarian nationalism.

Just like liberal doesn't mean what it did for John Locke.

If supporting our President, believing in free speech for all (agreed with or not),
and loving my country makes me a fascist or nazi, then so be it.

Call me what you like.

Now what?

You would only be a fascist if you supported the president after he over rides and jails judges who disagree with him, starts jailing the media, using the military against the public, etc. All while screaming USA.

You're right, it is.

Most people don't support fascists and neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

And most people don't support using violence to achieve political gain, regardless of whether the people using violence claim they're only doing it to people they've deemed fascists or not.

Especially not when you go around smashing Starbucks' windows and claim it's an anti-fascism "fight."

Just because one side is "evil" doesn't necessarily mean another group is "good". I'm sure the Spanish Inquisition thought they were doing good.
