As many of you know, “Antifa” is an ideological movement that has been gaining support across the United States. Ever since this movement started, its followers have been causing racial and political divides, as well as destroying property. Generally, they have been violent and quite frankly, stupid.
Antifa wants nothing more than an excuse to act like anarchists and cause violence. If you look at their previously stated goals and mission, it shows both how uneducated (politically) they are as well as a clear criminal and radical intent:
Let’s get one thing clear. Antifa is an Anarcho-Communist cause. Those on the left who call us “patriots”, step the F*** away. #BostonResist

They have also been literally calling for a revolution.
They defend themselves by saying things like, “We are just exercising our First Amendment rights.” It must be acknowledged that the First Amendment does not protect rioting. This is a poisonous and, contrary to what they say, hateful movement that must be stopped. However, we must take the high road, and cannot retaliate with the same illegal methods used by them. As they themselves stated, Antifa is not leftist, and thus people of all beliefs must rally to stop this madness.
Thankfully, groups of people around the country are now doing just that, and rallying under the cause of “Anti-Antifa.” Peacefully, they have protested their violence and divisiveness, hoping to bring our nation back together. Unfortunately, there are some white supremacist and fascist groups who are using the Anti-Antifa movement as a disguise, such as this website.
We must realize the danger of Antifa, who do not really want equality, but want a world where everyone can go out into the streets to burn stuff and attack anyone anytime they want.
For all of these reasons, I urge you to support your local Anti-Antifa today!
