Antifa are not thugs
It deeply disturbs me that Fox News, which is apparently our bumbling, inept president's main source of information, continues to classify the “antifa” movement as a leftist organization of thugs. Trump has done so as well.
My father was a member of the antifa. He joined it in 1942. He served in it through two wars and was awarded two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star. He spent 23 years total in the antifa. He then took a civil service job as a supply clerk for Army recruiting in Pittsburgh for the next 30 years, a total of 53 years of service in the antifa.
Trump avoided service in the antifa, deciding that it would be better if he served his country by running a phony populist campaign, and then, when elected, helping fellow billionaires lower their tax obligations.
Fascism is defined as “a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition, and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.” The current “antifa” movement is nothing but a group of patriots defending American principles against a gang of white supremacists and xenophobes. Which side are you on?
