    Default Antifa thugs disrupt free speach in Michigan

    A least a dozen people were arrested on Monday after supporters of Richard Spencer were attacked by antifa protesters outside a Michigan college campus where the white nationalist was scheduled to speak.

    Fistfights broke out on a road leading to Michigan State University in East Lansing as about 40 backers of Spencer walked up a road leading to the campus, where roughly 500 demonstrators had gathered, surrounding an armored police vehicle.

    ^^^^Who would not exist if there were no fascists.

    Remember kids, we had Antifa in the 40's too. They were called soldiers. And today, they are largely regarded as heroes.

    Food for thought?

    Why not, confronting and disrupting the fascists has to start somewhere.. and I would certainly rather have that happen now before the Fascists start strapping on the boots and marching in the streets. Free speech is only something the government has to allow you, nobody said that people had to stand back and listen if what you are saying is pure drivel

    They are not anti-fascism: they seem to be well schooled, and practiced, of it.

    Why do you consider the current antifa morons? Are they not standing up to and opposing an oppressive ideology? Should this ideology not be opposed?

    You're behind the times. Some US "conservatives" like fascists now. (Well, to be fair, some of them did then, too...)

    What are you doing about it?

    Fascist socialism, whether left or right leaning, has ended in the most horrific disasters of the last hundred years. Insofar as antifa leans hard left(I'm sure there are a bunch of disaffected, young useful idiots in the ranks as opposed to idealogues) I don't trust them anymore than I do the Richard Spencers of this world. Peas in a pod: looking for power.

    Ish, good point. I would offer though, that if we consider the historical antifa movements, it becomes apparent that those movements start and exist only during the times when fascists are gaining energy. Once the fascists go away, antifa goes away as well. Until of course the next fascist uprising. The cycle repeats itself.

    There were fascist elements in the United States in the 1930s such as Friends of New Germany, German American Bund, the Ku Klux Klan, and Charles Coughlin.[27]
    During the United States Red Scare after the end of World War II, the term "premature anti-fascist" came into currency to describe Americans who had strongly agitated or worked against fascism, such as by fighting for the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War, before fascism was seen as a proximate and existential threat to the United States (which only occurred generally after the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany and universally after the attack on Pearl Harbor).
    Why not, both oppose fascists?

    Dear ANTIFA,

    You're angry. We get it.
    Your anger is drowning-out whatever other message you might be attempting to communicate.

    Whenever you're ready for an adult conversation, we're here.

    Best regards,

    I have seen a few videos. My favorite one is from Arizona where the people claim they can't wait for a liberal genocide, where the 13 year old states that a Jewish woman should go back to her country, and that they don't want sharia law, but rather a Christian America. Every thing about that is so UN-AMERICAN it isn't even funny. I see nothing wrong with people opposing those ideas.

    I will also note that the left, while not tolerating fascism, does not claim that they want a conservative genocide, or anything like that. What makes you conservatives so violent when you aren't even confronted? Obviously antifa is resorting violence, but having been threatened with genocide, I can't necessarily say they are in the wrong.

    Our first amendment guarentees the right of PEACEFUL assembly, among other things. The only question here is the peaceful part.

    Alan, I, being a mostly reasonable citizen will absolutely agree that pouring water on a vet in a wheel chair is unacceptable. But when it comes to opposing those with torches, brandishing swastikas, and the KKK.....

    Might note that Spencer spoke to a crowd of 40 or so, after he banned coverage of his speech. The brawl outside attracted hundreds.

    i don't have any problem with opposing the nazis. the problem with antifa is, they're a bunch of anti-everything militant types that can't find enough nazis to be mad about. so then you get assaulting grandparents in wheelchairs.

    i get it, nazis bad. i would even go out on a limb and say pretty much everyone on the planet except the tiny, tiny, tiny portion that ARE nazis, think the nazis are bad. so if you wanted to protest what 99% of the world agrees is bad, why would you be doing it while wearing masks and helmets?

    the idea of anti-fascism is a good thing. what they're out there doing is not always good.
