Betamax, his lovely and charming wife, and I, were walking downtown a few weeks ago, and ran into a large group of Black nationalists of the Yakub variety, holding placards. I wanted to look at the signs but Beta's wife, African American, kind of shushed me along.

Meanwhile, in Washington, James Comey is about to trigger Donald Trump by writing "The president is a traitor" on the wall with chalk. Precious snowflakes, beware!

I'm not sure what Limp Bizkit and ANTIFA have to do with each other but I did find some ANTIFA "poetry" that mentions Limp Bizkit.
"I've known people who listen
to Eminem and Professor
Green who never bother
to listen to anything else
The "rap bits" in Linkin Park
and Limp Bizkit songs they think
are "alright" as well
But anything by the likes
of Gangstarr and the great P.E.
is just "FRICKIN' WEIRED"
they often tell me
Am I anti-white, then, 'cuse I hate
Professor Green and never really
liked Marshall when most people
told me I should?
Or am I just a realist who says
it's mostly just hype
that's got the people interested
while the good stuff never
really gets a look in?"
It's just an association arrived at via trolling, I think. Could've been about oranges and apples rather than Limp Bizkit and Green Day for the point to get across, I suppose. It's just the same as the Halloween stuff that was going last year, most notably at old established Ivy Leagues where the "old" and the "new" would clash, resulting in many positive improvements to campus integration, sensitivity, all that good stuff that comes with common fucking sense. Evergreen's a weird one though since it doesn't really have that "establishment" to rebel against- it's quite literally a major-less collegiate institution- I guess is the point. These guys are dicks with a camera but I don't think they were trying to promote on-campus violence with this analogy, even if some of Mr. Dust's lyrics might make you think otherwise.

Those were goths not antifa. BTW, if you have a beef with antifa, you're pretty much admitting to being the fa.

I have a problem with them being dumber than the fucking bricks they through through windows.
And capitalism hasn't murded anyone? Howabout the hundreds of millions the East India Company allowed to starve in India and Africa so they could export grain, the millions murdered in the Belgian Congo for the sake of selling rubber, or the trans-Atlantic slave trade?
"Er... uh, that wasn't true capitalism."

ARE YOU ALL JUST MAKING UP WORDS OR WHAT
Just one Katana. It's all you need.
I wouldn't argue capitalism is in any way kind or that its hands are clean. But, it's afforded the west comparitevly free and open societies. It's especially awful compared to a fantasy, but please identify a communist country you'd rather live in.
The batshit Left that would like to see it dismantled don't have a grip on reality. I also think they'd be absolute tyrants if given the opportunity. It'd be 1984 with microagressions.
Communist nations haven't had much of a fair shake. The CIA thwarted many potential communist governments, while the US has done it's part to keep many poor. Cuba appears poor because they don't rob the 3rd world like the west does.

Welp, I feel old. I don't get the joke so I just hate everybody in this video.

Antifa thinks they are really badass don't they?
It's basically Anon, only replace computers with bodies. So they're taking down Westboro websites while yelling homophobic taunts in Overwatch, or occupying to destroy the big banks and complaining that all the restaurants in the occupy zone are closed. All these things and probably a lot more.
Antifa existed long before the world wide web. Back in the 80s it was real deal fights in the streets with real deal fascists.
True, and Anon's been around since Guy Fawkes, but the word as it's being used now has only been a recent one, kinda like "emo" music. Its origins have little impact on its meaning
But these are clearly goth kids. I don't get how they're being misconstrued as antifa.
"Goth" is more of an identity, and "antifa" is an ideology, especially in this context. Them being goth really isn't really any more relevant than whatever Fred Durst did to those poor people allegedly; it's their actions that suggest antifacist tones and they just put it to a Bauhaus song or something instead of Pete Seeger or Jello Biafra

Stars for making me finally look up what "antifa" means. Man I am too old to keep up with all the hip labels and shit.
Antifa has been a thing since before WWII.
Justifying all the shitty things they do by claiming present day situations are just like WWII, a time they secretly pine to return to with its total war against clear cut enemies.
The similarities to far right reactionaries just keep piling up.
Nominal will just sit back and let the fash take over. You'd have been a fine German in the 1930s. "I may have allowed fascism to take hold in America, but at least I didn't get involved in drama. Time to watch South Park, where I can feel superior through the fence riding positions on major issues."
Even the girl in the wheel chair is taking more of a stand than you.
Cena, name one concrete example of how Antifa has bettered our society. Besides exposing the authoritarian undercurrent of the Left. That has been very helpful. The alt right and Antifa types are only distinguishable by their rhetoric. They both pine for a homogeneous, pure society.
Violence isn't authoritarianism. Fighting fascists doesn't make you a Nazi too, nor does it make you authoritarian. It's taking the fight where it needs to be.
How has it bettered society? It kept neo Nazism in the shadows for decades.
Actual Nazis took action, they did more than talk. Cena knows this, but reggies lie as plan A.
What Cena means is that he wants speaking out loud to be called violence and responding to speech with violence to be called just.
He and every other authoritarian fascist in all of recorded history.
The Republicans will have no trouble electing anyone so long as Democrats constantly shit on the enlightenment. You jettison sane voters like cargo on a sinking ship.

The only thing antifa has achieved so far is making hippies look like badasses

Trump's election broke the brains of liberals in the same way the September 11th attacks broke the brains of conservatives.
