Antifa flatter themselves that they are what stands between the United States and fascism or Nazism. This is, obviously, absurd. It’s pure tribalism: President Obama authorized the extrajudicial killing of American citizens as a national-security measure; President Trump is an angry tweeter. But it is the latter rather than the former that apparently presages the rise of a Falange Americana. That is how you know that this is a fundamentally unserious point of view.
Yeah. . . We all saw the photos coming out of Yemen. They are horrific. And it wasn’t Trump but our wonderful, non-racist president Obama who contributed to making that happen. If it were Trump, we’d be hearing that he’s genociding “brown people” on purpose because he’s such a Nazi.
I understand the desire to spice up one’s sated life with fantasies that one is saving the planet by posting crap on Facebook. I wouldn’t have any beef with it if only people didn’t start co-opting words like Nazism, fascism, and totalitarianism for the purposes of increasing their enjoyment of this game.
