Antifa Ideology

Antifa activists believe that Fascists forfeit their rights to speak and assemble when they deny those same rights to others through violence and intimidation. A Baltimore-based activist who goes by the name Murray explains the movement’s outlook: “You fight them by writing letters and making phone calls so you don’t have to fight them with fists. You fight them with fists so you don’t have to fight them with knives. You fight them with knives so you don’t have to fight them with guns. You fight them with guns so you don’t have to fight them with tanks.”

Born out of resistance to Mussolini and Hitler in Europe during the 1920s and ’30s, the Antifa movement has suddenly burst into the headlines amidst opposition to the Trump administration and the alt-right. Antifa activists can be seen in the news, often in all black with balaclavas covering their faces, fighting police at the presidential inauguration, on college campuses protesting right-wing speakers, and, most recently, on the streets of Charlottesville, VA, protecting, among others, a group of ministers including Cornel West from neo-Nazi violence. West told reporters  “The anti-fascists saved our lives.”
