The Rise of Antifa

While most opponents of white nationalists are part of progressive movements that contrast their peacefulness and inclusiveness with the racism of neo-Nazis and other extremists, the anti-fascist militia known as Antifa adopts some of the same styles and attitudes of extreme far-right movements.

Its aim, according to Dartmouth professor Mark ray, who has studied it, is to forcibly repress all forms of hate speech, denying a platform to white nationalist groups. But its own belligerence alarms the FBI and other law enforcement officials.

At two separate rallies in Berkeley, California, Antifa members engaged in violence while seeking to counter “free speech” rallies organized by far-right groups.
