There is no strong Fascist movement in America, but there is a strong Communist presence. Popular phrases such as social justice that Obama put into fashion are popular communist signals
Antifaschistische Aktion, abbreviated as Antifa or anti-fascist, was an organization affiliated with the Communist Party of Germany that existed from 1932 to 1933. In the postwar era the historical organization inspired new groups and networks, known as the wider Antifa movement, many of which use the aesthetics of the historical Antifaschistische Aktion, especially a modified version of its logo.

There is much confusion as to who Antifa is, and what they stand for. First, lets define fascism that they say they are against: Fascism is a set of political beliefs that includes strong control of society and the economy by the state, and the halting of any resistance. In a fascist nation, private enterprise would continue, but all private commercial endeavors would be heavily controlled by the state. Examples would be Nazi Germany and Mussolinis Italy.
Under Fascism, the basic controls of a society are still in place, but under the control of the dictator or the Party. Under Communism, societal controls are utterly wiped out, and replaced by something completely different. This explains why fascist countries transition into democracies much easier.
Antifa is the modern day version of the KKK. They are the militant wing of the Democrat party.
Look for AntiFa to appear about 15 minutes after RBG cashes her chips.
Antifa is ironic: they exhibit all the policies and behaviors of actual fascists.
Heres a damm good reason why this group shoul,d be seriously looked at and it comes from a comment section in Free Republic who posted this photo essay
Let there be no doubt about the Oregon bomber and his connection with Antifa
They are also, still, the Antifa of the 1930’s Germany. Every bit as violent as the Nazi brownshirts then too.
Two sides of the very same socialist murder machine coin.
There are people on this forum who believe we are seeing a reimplemented new American version which is not built upon or connected to the organization we tangled with throughout Europe during the cold war, and this is just as true as the notion that the globalists seeking power over the Sovereign United States Of America are a new American group of globalists unconnected to the globalists we wrestled with during the cold war.
Some how that makes sense to them.
Me? I think back on the intelligence dispatches which I read in the battalion's S2 shop and today's version lines up perfectly with yesterday's version. I am going with young American recruits inducted into a hardened disciplined and long established international organization with effectivly unlimited funding.
Anything which causes people to underestimate this organization is not preparing them to combat it effectively.
It is preparing them to die.
Antifa is the military arm of the Democrat/Communist Party, USA.
Why they have not yet been designated a Domestic Terrorist organization is beyond me.
Our Federal Government has their own agenda and it does not involve the security or sovereignty of United States Citizens.
Antifa has all the worst features of both “false flag” and projection.
Technically, the Third Reich under Adolf Hitler was not “fascism”, but “National Socialism”. The conflation of the two was made both by the alliance between the Fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini in Italy, and the National Socialist party of the Third Reich under Hitler. The Imperial Japanese form of a military dictatorship was not especially socialist in any manner, but was based on the “Samurai Warrior” Bushido Code, some obscure reference to “Honor”.
The conflation between fascism and National Socialism was further pushed in the narrative of Josef Stalin, to somehow differentiate the totalitarian rule of Communism from either of its two ideological cousins.
Yak... yak... yak... no one does anything. Pathetic.
Antifa is really Fa. They are the same as 1930 Italian brown shirts. NAZI’s and Fascists by any name are socialists. Conservatism by today’s American definition is the belief that government should be small and unobtrusive.
Nazi’s and fascists of any kind are socialists. They are only different from communists in that Nazi’s believe the government knows best what the workers need. Communists believe that the workers run the government and thereby getting to the same result. In both cases the government through the party runs everything with a strong hand. Nazi’s are not right while communists are left. Nazi’s are simply the inevitable end to communism. Stalin takes control, Hitler takes control, Xi takes control. The workers are forced to just accept the result.
America is based on freedoms and democracy. Antifa is based on taking away freedom of speech assembly and protest from the right.
There is a strong Communist presence.
Remember when Obama said we need a army guess what they are called?.
I’ve made the same comment many times online but with a slightly different phrasing... Two sides of the same totalitarian coin.
Decent article. Gets it right.
The Marxists(Communists)/Socialists and Nazis (National Socialists) had a common appeal to workers; which made them competitors ON THE LEFT. They had a GEOPOLITICAL difference. The Marxists in Germany & France were internationalists, and part of the Left Wing “Internationale”, like their Bolshevik friends & political cousins in Russia/Soviet Union. The Nazis saw they could not immediately (yet then) “nationalize” German industry, and rebuild it and the Germany military post-WWI. They needed the capitalists, they just needed to command them what they wanted them to do, without necessarily taking their properties from them.
In spite of how that was a difference of establishing socialist control, from a common Leftist perspective, the entire Left, post WWII, has maintained every possible effort to always try to frame their biggest opponents as Nazis, trying to hang that label on all opponents of the Left; in spite of the fact that the Nazis had more in common with the Marxists than they did anyone on the traditional DEMOCRATIC “right”.
Unfortunately, the Marxists have been quite successful in that effort with the sheeple of west, in North America and Western Europe. Less so in Much Eastern Europe where those nations experienced occupation by the Nazis and then the Soviets.
I’ve always said that fascism is the softer sell of totalitarianism.
