“I am Antifa?” Then you might just be a “terrorist” soon, too.
The hashtag #IchbinAntifa (“I am Antifa”) began trending on Twitter in Germany on Sunday after US President Donald Trump said he was considering labeling the group a terrorist organization.
Antifa, which is short for anti-fascists, is a loose network comprised of radical left-wing activists that confront right-wing extremists, neo-Nazi groups and white supremacists.
On Saturday, the US president said that the new classification “would make it easier for police to do their jobs,” and dubbed the anti-fascist group “gutless radical left wack jobs.”
Well, these anti-fascist folks might not be terrorists but they certainly have major issues (their obsession with violence, for one thing). I like what author Douglas Murray has to say about them: The demand for fascists vastly outstrips the actual supply. The further fascism recedes into history the more self-proclaimed anti-fascists call people fascist who aren’t fascist, a cost-free exercise bringing personal and political advantage.
