Wikipedia on "antifa"
« on: August 25, 2017, 10:50:20 AM »

Just wondered if wiki had an entry for "antifa" yet.

After the "disambiguation" selections, I found:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifa_(United_States)

Preceding the body of the entry, there appears this disclaimer from wiki:

Quote

The neutrality of this article is disputed. Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page. Please do not remove this message until conditions to do so are met. (August 2017) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)

So.  Does it look neutral and reasonably factual to you?

I'm betting that when the horde of lefty "editors" get done with it, it will be pretty softened up with apologetics and semantic swaying. 

That's what I'm betting.

NOTE:  I'm aware of this thread:

and I hope to avoid direct discussion of that herein.

The Wikipedia has a lot of citations to back it up, so it's not completely off-the-cuff op-ed. I'm sure the antifas will try to water it down, though.

One thing I would take issue with is describing the antifa movement (at least in the U.S.) as "anti-government." They aren't so much anti-government as they are anti-Trump administration government. They didn't materialize until after Trump's inauguration.

Nah, they've been around for a while. They like to riot at WTO and G8 summits. I think I first heard of them in the mid 2000s, but they've been around for longer than that.

This is just the first time they've managed to...distinguish...themselves from all the other "anarchist" aholes in a major way.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. - William Pitt the Younger

Trump just managed to rally all the Socialist/Fascist/Anarchy f*expletive deleted*tards into a cohesive group.  They've been around for a long, long, long time.
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

Since 1930s Germany,  "Antisocialistiche Aktion"  if I recall correctly.

Antifaschistische Aktion   

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifaschistische_Aktion

Quote
The first German movement to call itself Antifaschistische Aktion was proclaimed by the German Communist Party (KPD) in their newspaper Rote Fahne in 1932 and held its first rally in Berlin on 10 July 1932, then capital of the Weimar Republic.

So, they are Commie f*expletive deleted*tards.

Quote
During the early 1930s amidst rising tensions between Nazis and the Communists, Berlin in particular was the site of regular and often very violent clashes between the two groups.

We saw how well THAT worked out....

Also, Hitler was a Austrian citizen.  He could have been deported at anytime...
