A good look at Antifa's thoughts, goals, and tactics to decide for yourself who they are and how you feel.

I thought there was a thread on the Alt Right but I couldn't find it. Found this one though. This piece credits many more groups than just Antifa, but the gist is that the push-back is working.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/201 ... right.html

Quote:
In the year since Charlottesville, many in the alt-right movement have been forced from online fundraising, social media, and publishing platforms. They have been forced, too, from the streets and their workplaces by anti-fascist activists whose tactics were widely maligned as counterproductive by a number of pundits throughout the past year. Confrontation, doxing, and de-platforming, conventional wisdom went, could bolster the movement’s claims to martyrdom and repression and might ultimately embolden its leaders. Precisely the opposite has happened. Unite the Right holdout Richard Spencer, still perhaps the alt-right’s most prominent figure, has spoken frankly about the challenge antifa has posed to his own organizing efforts ever since he was punched in the face by a protester on Inauguration Day in 2017. In March, he announced that he would no longer hold well-publicized public events. “When they become violent clashes and pitched battles, they aren’t fun,” he said. “Antifa is winning.” Andrew Anglin of the flagship neo-Nazi site the Daily Stormer was among the alt-right figures who warned followers not to participate in Sunday’s rally. “This isn’t the same as the little demonstrations we did before Charlottesville,” he wrote in a post last week. “If you show up at this event, and you are identified, your life will be ruined. You won’t be able to get into a university or get a good job, you probably won’t be able to even get into a trade school or join a union.”

Good to see. Keep up the pressure on these tools.

Good. Ruin all their lives. I love it. Nazis should die but since we are too [expletive] for that crush them socially and financially.

From NPR says, a fractured alt-right nazi movement may be more dangerous, harder to keep tabs on

I'm pretty sure our giant surveillance apparatus is up to the task. We'll until Trump tells them not to.

I’d say that was the state of things pre-Trump, pre-Breitbart. I’d love to get back to that and let’s deal with systemic racism.

I'd rather play whack-a-mole with Nazis than have them out in the open.

Sadly, the massive surveillance apparatus will be spying on leftists, not white supremacists.
