Here’s Why Antifa Is Anti-Trump, Anti-Right, and … Anti-Liberal?

"Antifa" or "anti-fascist" groups first appeared on the scene in post-World War I Europe to battle growing fascist regimes, primarily in Germany, Italy, and Spain. When fascism dwindled after World War II, antifa followed suit, but reemerged in the ’70s and ’80s to rally against the era’s "neo-Nazi" movement. Since that time, anti-fascist activity has intermittently waxed and waned — that is, until President Donald Trump took office. These days, Antifa has expanded their definition of "fascism" to include just about anything they consider to be oppressive, as in "the system," the law (i.e. the police,) the "right," and perhaps most of all: Donald J. Trump.

So how did the so-called anti-fascists, an organization that originally opposed genocidal dictators like Hitler, Mussolini and Franco, decide to target Donald J. Trump?

“Antifa unnerves Americans on both sides of the aisle because they are willing to break the law, they are willing to injure people and destroy property. And because they believe they have the moral imperative to excuse that violence. Nonetheless, many on the left still sympathize with antifa,” said Glenn in this video clip from his week-long chalkboard series on ‘antifa.’ Glenn went on to explain that because white-supremacist and alt-right “fringe groups” support Trump, some leftists (including those in the media) equivocate the president with such hate-groups. “Antifa’s side is opposing the president,” Glenn said, “Their mindset is that Donald Trump is so bad that he’s causing these poor diseffective activists to lash out.”

“The irony of the left wringing their hands over Antifa, is that Antifa is not conflicted about how they feel about liberals. They don’t like them,” added Glenn. “Antifa does not care for the Democratic party’s progressive agenda. Antifa is following an entirely different playbook. At the Milo Yiannopoulos protests in Berkeley, February 2017, Antifa spray-painted this message around town: ‘Liberals get the bullet too.'”
