Last week, an “Antifa” group (anti-fascist) gathered in Palm Beach, Florida to protest a Turning Point USA conference, calling the attendees “fascist,” “racists,” and “nazis”—nevermind the fact that students of many races attended the conference—and continued to protest throughout the event.
If you have read my previous article regarding Antifa, you already know how I feel about them. It is important to note that in the video below, not a single Antifa protester really knows what fascism is. As I’ve said before, the Antifa are not really anti-fascist; they are anti-everyone-who-doesn’t-agree-with-them. I personally doubt that they even know what the Turning Point USA event was for. Perhaps they should find an actual KKK or fascist rally to protest instead of attacking anyone who they disagree with.
We still see the hypocrisy of the “anarcho-communist” ideals of the Antifa (I have previously discussed in my article “Anti-Antifa?”), as one interviewee of Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform stated: “I’m an anarchist, man.”
The video spotlights the lack of understanding among the members of Antifa, and the reason I have put this in the nonpartisan section is I believe that the majority of people, no matter what they’re political leanings, recognizes that the members of this group are extremists just looking for an excuse to yell and cause trouble. After all, the Department of Homeland Security has reportedly classified them as a domestic terrorist organization.
Here’s the video by Campus Reform. Content Warning: Multiple protestor’s signs include severe language.
