The Central Ohio Antifa’s Facebook page is a closed group. So I can’t confirm that this post — which has gone viral — is genuine. I certainly understand the angst with which it’s been greeted. The People of the Gun and the wider set of conservatives are deeply and completely opposed to the Antifa movemnt, whose values are summed-up here by the good folks at urbandictionary.com:
Short for (militant) anti-fascists.
Middle-class champagne socialist/communist/anarchist white boys who don’t like nationalists or fascists. They consider themselves to be rebelling against the establishment, whilst upholding all of its ultra-politically correct views.
Antifa only dislike racism when its carried out by whites, and do not have the bottle to stand up against anti-white racism; leading to many people on the right to refer to them as ‘traitors’. I’d rather just call them morons.
Most are teenagers and university students who grow out of the fad when they start paying taxes.
Antifa is stupid.
Stupid yes, but dangerous? I suppose anyone with a gun can be dangerous. Or a car. Or a keyboard. If the far left thinks they can literally take the fight to conservatives to defeat the fascism that they dream of (go figure), ha!
Still, gun rights for all, right? And the more training antifa receives the less likely they’ll kill each other or some bystander by an ND. Unless it happens at the training camp. If so, oops.
