Seems like in a short time we've gone from "antifa's heart may be in the right place but their tactics are bad" to "antifa is just as bad as white supremacists"

My biggest gripe with them is the name, just say you are Anti-facists, are you that pressed for time you have to shorten it to Antifa? It's just one more syllable.

Yes. I'm not comfortable with everything they do, but apparently any violence on their part is being treated by authorities as domestic terrorist violence. Yet they only show up as a counter force and who have they killed again?

And it looks badass.

It really is amazing how easy many people who's activism is confined to their keyboard find criticizing people who are getting beat up and doxxed by the scum of the earth.

What is meant by #AlsoFa? Like, "also fascist"? How does that make sense?

This is long and depressing as hell but here it is:

The Intercept - How Right-Wing Extremists Stalk, Dox, and Harass Their Enemies
Quote:
CHAT LOGS OBTAINED from message boards used by neo-Nazis and other far-right groups show a concerted effort to compile private information on leftist enemies and circulate the data to encourage harassment or violence.

The messages were obtained by an anonymous source, who infiltrated and gained the trust of white nationalists and other right-wingers, and has been leaking the material to Unicorn Riot, a “decentralized media collective” that emerged from leftist protest movements.

The chat logs originate from various web discussion communities hosted by the provider Discord and closed to the public. The communities, which have names like “Vibrant Diversity,” “Ethnoserver,” “Safe Space 3,” “4th Reich,” and “Charlottesville 2.0,” range from having 36 users to 1,269 users. The most active, with nearly a quarter million messages over seven months, is “Vibrant Diversity,” a neo-Nazi community forum that includes a channel called “#oven,” where users share racist memes. The 4th Reich server, the second most active, has 130,000 messages over the course of four months and includes a channel called “#rare_hitlers,” where users share propaganda posters and other glorified media from Nazi Germany. The “Charlottesville 2.0” server, which contains 35,000 messages, is where the “Unite the Right” hate rally in Charlottesville was organized.

This article is based solely on chat logs from a community called “Pony Power” (Unicorn Riot published the logs yesterday). The Pony Power server has 50 users, and the chat logs contain just over 1,000 messages, posted over the course of 10 days and ranging in topic from far-right politics to advice about digital and operational security to debates about the legal limits of online behavior. The primary activity on the Pony Power server is posting private information, like names, photos, home addresses, and phone numbers of dozens of anti-fascist activists.
