For John, BLUF: The Antifa movement is a fraud. Worse, it tactics, if successful, will destroy individual freedom here in the United States. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
The members of Antifa are not opponents to fascism but its genuine representatives.
From The Foundation for Economic Education, by Antony Mueller, 29 March 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
Aghastly phantom has descended upon America: the specter of anti-capitalism. Young people march behind the socialist bandwagon and some activists block free speech as members of a group called “Antifa”.So read the article and learn.
This “anti-fascist” movement engages in militant protests and does not shrink from using violence. As a part of the extreme left, the members of the “antifa-movement” are self-proclaimed “anti-capitalists” and declared “enemies of the right”. They call themselves “anti-fascist”, when, in fact, more than any other ideology, fascism characterizes their own movement.
Yet what is fascism and what is the content of this ideology?
The real threat here is that in an effort to make the United States better we will turn it into the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. That would be bad. Very bad.
Remember, perfect is the enemy of good enough.
