Antifa activists say violence is necessary

Interesting little tidbit, via Drudge, from The Hill.  We knew that they endorsed violence, but to have them on the record, for most of the Swamp to see, is a tad surprising.

Antifa activists say violence is necessary

By Katie Bo Williams - 09/14/17 06:30 AM EDT

Anti-fascist activists, or “antifa,” increasingly mobilized in the wake of President Trump’s election, are unapologetic about what they describe as the necessary use of violence to combat authoritarianism.

While both experts on the movement and activists within it emphasize that not everyone who participates in anti-fascist activism engages in violence, they say the use of force is intrinsic to their political philosophy.

“The justification [of the use of violence] is that Nazi ideology at its very core is founded on violence and on wielding power by any means,” said Mike Isaacson, who is one of the founders of Smash Racism D.C., an antifa organization in Washington.

Isaacson is unequivocal in his defense of violence as a legitimate tool to combat the creeping threat of what he deems authoritarianism.

“There is the question of whether these people should feel safe organizing as Nazis in public, and I don’t think they should,” said Isaacson.
 

And, just who are so-called Nazis, to Antifa?

Anyone they don't like.  Plus, all Republicans.

They have declared themselves to be terrorists and no different from ISIS.

There needs to be a website dedicated to IDing these individuals so they can't hide behind their masks. They keep this up and at some point a bunch of people are going to open fire and slaughter them, and if I'm on the jury the verdict is Not Guilty.

Authoritarian behavior is just as much at home on the left or right of the spectrum, in today's USA the Left pretty much has the market cornered.

President Trump needs to have Antifa officially declared a terrorist organization. To shoot down claims of racism/ authoritarianism/silencing dissent/ Whatever other lame excuse they'll use, point out that they first started being viewed as terrorists during the Obama administration.

That is an excellent idea, if they know they will be outed and ostrisized or put in danger of retribution they won't be so willing to go out and spew hate, violence and destruction. They need to learn breaking the law has consequences.

Is it me, or do they seem to be a bunch of skinny white kids?

If so, I'm really shaking in my boots........ :sarcasm:
