There would be no Antifa without the Fa.

It's purely a reaction.


The Fa is the root problem causing violence.

I'd say until recently (Charlottesville) it was an over reaction.

Regardless violent communists are not much better than fascists in my book.

"In the first place, the dichotomy between "theoretical" and "practical" is a false one. In economics, all arguments are theoretical. And, since economics discusses the real world, these theoretical arguments are by their nature "practical" ones as well." M Rothbard

Interesting point. I can see the argument of tying in partisan politics with the violence we see on the streets today.

But how will the Dems and Reps work together? The two sides are at constant war over control and power.


There is bluster and ballyhoo between the two parties, but these are only around the wedge issues.  On most actual policy, the two parties are in broad agreement.  That's why nothing much changes from one presidency or congressional session to the next.

Ah, but the set "Anti-fascist" may include the sub-set "violent communist" without negating my point.

Are you guys finally coming around to my contention that a civil war is coming?


No civil war is coming.  Anyone that lived through the 60's (like myself)  can tell you how bad things got and we made it through as a nation.

Yes. but during the sixties there were real issues.  This is astro-turf with hyped  outrage about exaggerated problems designed to create crisis after crisis, that the radicals can exploit to their advantage with he aim of implementing a CHANGE to Marxism.

One must remember that the lady who believes a civil war is coming has admitted she knows little or nothing about American history.  Particularly earlier presidents, including George Washington for crying out loud.  I just finished reading Cry Havoc! The Crooked Road to Civil War, and have read other books about that war and the rest of American history.  I can assure anybody who really thinks times have never been this bad to rest easy.  They certainly have been this bad before, frequently, and often much worse.  Ain't no civil war coming.  Yes, we have a clown in the White House but even his cabinet officers are beginning to ignore him.  Much to their credit, I might add.

It's an interesting historical fact and has very little bearing on the facts of life of today's America...

Reading back through this thread, I feel this needs to be addressed. Considering that black populations are concentrated in the South (see here), how can it have little bearing on the facts of life today?
