THBT the Left should distance itself from the Antifa
Antifa (English: /ænˈtiːfə/ or /ˈæntiˌfɑː/) is a militant, anarchist political movement of autonomous, self-styled anti-fascist groups. They focus more on fighting far-right and white supremacist ideology directly than on encouraging pro-left policy.
During the recent Charlottesville rallies, both the Antifa and Right wing groups turned up heavily armed. Donald Trump, when responding to the violence, mentioned that there was 'violence on both sides'; and while I paraphrase for the sake of sanity, he said that the Antifa were carrying large clubs and weapons and were just as responsible for the disturbance the rally caused.
