Man what is it about the east part of LA and southern California that is so racist? I mean really, someone, tell me the history, I am eager to learn.
I don't know if there's a history, but it's a very multi-cultural area, it's a strange day if I run into more white people than non-white...so maybe the racists are like cornered rats.
Lots of rich white people and tons of Hispanics from being close to the border.
actually anaheim in particular has a really bad history with the kkk. there used to be KIGY (Klansman I Greet You) signs posted at the city limits in the 20s.

Is that really the full fight video? If so, wow.

I like how they know not to take it too far. Beat them up and then let them scamper off and get arrested.
They didn't get arrested and this will become propaganda for white nationalist recruitment videos.
The people that got arrested were the counter-protesters.
I'm pretty sure all of them were initially taken in, but most of the KKK members were released quite quickly. They held onto the KKK member who stabbed a number of people, but he was released without charges as they said that he acted in self-defense. The counter-protesters were all arrested and a number of them face charges.
It's messed up.
Pigs love the kkk
Guess I only really saw the guy in the KKK uniform in cuffs, though of course it makes sense people on both sides were detained.
Also - stabbing people who are using fists doesn't seem much like self-defense to me.
"You slapped me, so I'm going to hit you with a wrench. In the face."

yeah three antifascists got stabbed and went to jail. none of the racists went to jail. and the only people interviewed by the media were klan members whining about being "refused police protection".
fuck these racist shitbags, fuck anaheim pd, fuck orange county, and fuck the entrenched power structures of southern california and america.
Why am I not surprised by any of this.
Before you judge California too harshly, in the state I live in these bigots could have gunned down all their assailants and claimed self defense, even if it's just a slap, and even if the assailant is otherwise unarmed beyond the means of slapping.
Because nothing says "anti-fascism" like physically harming people for expressing opinions you don't like.
Opinions acting as a symbolic expression of an actual institution of oppression no one has the power to stop. At most, it's tragic that they attacked the symptom, but still nice white people took an initiative. Since the two sides aren't equal, I would say, yes, it does say anti-fascism to harm actual fascists.
Killing them, I'm against that, because why not, but fuck yes, kick their goddamned asses.

Remember when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Westboro Baptist Church?

I almost clicked on the youtube video link, then I remembered that I have better things to do in the next few hours, such as masturbate and nurse my dry socket.

This is tricky for me-- part of me is happy to see racists baiting people of color getting beat and driven off. However, I don't like this cultural moment of people looking for monsters to revel in their destruction. Part of that seems an outlet for just wanting to heap violence or internet bullying with license on a target. For example, that asshole dentist who shot the beloved lion- people relish in destroying his life that haven't had a stake in animal rights before.
Also, as Baleen said- this provides more fuel for white power movement. Maybe shaming them would have been more effective- reveal the faces/names to their workplaces or emasculated them. Giving them violence looks to their side as victimization the same way that lack women pushed out of the Trump rally was viewed.

I just checked to see if "get some" is an active tag and discovered it is not but "Get Some" is.

They turned a bunch of Klan assholes into martyrs and gave them more "proof" for their shitty agenda.
They sure showed them!
