The Rise of the Left’s Violent, Fascist Antifa

Law enforcement says they haven’t seen violence like this since the 1960s. The left-wing anarchist group Antifa is escalating its violence around the country against people and movements they consider pure evil. Antifa considers their targets “the living embodiment, they are the second coming of Hitler,” in the words of one member.

The group says it wants to stop “fascists.” Antifa “is any group that’s willing to stand up against fascists by any means necessary,” said one activist interviewed by CNN.
