oh, those anti fascists

Antifa assaults a Bernie bro:

Paul Welch is not a fascist. He is a liberal who voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary, and for Hillary Clinton in the general election. On August 4, he attended a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon, as a counterdemonstrator intent on signaling his opposition to the “tacitly fascist event,” he told The Oregonian.

Tell that to Antifa: One of the masked militants attacked Welch, striking him over and over again with some kind of metal rod concealed in black cloth. One blow landed on his head, which caused Welch to immediately crumple to the ground. He would eventually need four staples to close up the gaping wound.

When a group is opposing Nazis, it’s usually hard to look worse than the Nazis. But Antifa is trying.

    So much for the party of inclusion.

    They are NOT opposing Nazi’s. There are only opposing those Nazi’s that are not their Nazi’s.
    It’s a bit like gangs: they like their gang, but they kill other gangs. Same here.
    Huey Long figured it out long ago: “Yes, we will have fascism in America. But we’ll call it anti-fascism.”

  3. Tasso Rampante Says:

    Communists canít see a non-Communist as anything other than a fascist. So a Bernie supporter? Fascist.

    But letís get serious. Antifa is not a serious threat to anyone who isnít going out looking for them. The really interesting detail is that wearing black is now becoming risky. Time to update your Tactical Timmy Underoos.

    Ace over at AoSHQ had an interesting point on this yesterday: Why are we pointing out that the victim is a Sandernista supporter? Why should it matter? They are violent, uncontrollable thugs. By highlighting this victim, we are saying, We expect to be attacked by these bastards, and it’s normal; it’s not normal for them to attack fellow travelers.

    Which is a wrong way to think about it. But we still do it.

  5. Tasso Rampante Says:

    Because Bernie supporters also support Antifa. They need a wake up call.

  6. Ravenwood Says:

    Attacking a Bernie supporter seems much safer than Antifa’s usual practice of going up against bikers, rednecks, and combat vets.

    Surprised one of them hasn’t been killed yet.

    First define “Fascist”. Only then, with a common understanding of the term, can we begin to talk about it.

    The Italian Fascisti (large “F”) were Marxists who saw their system as an interim stage on the way to full-on Marxism. Going farther back in time, the ancient Roman system was fascist. If we define “fascism” as “government and industry working together, ostensibly for The People” then all governments in the world are fascist in some way or to some extent.

    The symbol of the bundle of sticks, or fascii, wrapped in laurel, sometimes with an axe and sometimes without, will be found in practically every state capitol building in the union, and in WA DC, and it represents fascism (small “f”) as from Rome, i.e. the physical, coercive force of government, which places Man’s substitute law as the authority above the one Creator’s law. The U.S. Mercury dime has an image of the god Mercury on the head and the fascii on the tail side. Thus when we interpret “In God We Trust” we must ask which “god” is being referenced. Clearly in the case of the Mercury dime that “god” is a Pagan god. There are many pagan and even luciferian symbols on our currency today, throughout WA DC, and throughout the Catholic and most other churches and cathedrals, as there were in Rome.

    We are all fascists who uphold our current form of government, and “Antifa” is, of course, also fascist, using the ubiquitous practice among authoritarians of accusing others of what they do.

    Unfortunately thereís almost always some modicum of truth in such accusations, and we would do well to acknowledge it.

    Let’s not get too wrapped up in the “our side verses their side” game of emotions, and instead pursue the truth which doesn’t give a flying fuck about your emotions, your emotion-founded desires, or your keen intellect.

    It’s probably worth noting ITT that the Berkeley bike-lock attacker — who’s name is Eric Clanton — had all the felony charges against him dropped in a plea agreement with the judge and the county D.A.

    The violent attacker got 4 days in jail (time served) and 3 years probation. He had already violated his earlier probation before the plea deal but apparently was never dinged for that.

    Just to make this clear, this isn’t something like “90 days, with all but time served suspended, to be held over his head to make sure he behaves on probation.” Nope, this a-hole got only 4 days for multiple violent attacks that could have easily been fatal.
