1920s Antifa

My wife and I have been watching a Swiss called Hitler's Circle of Evil, about his closest advisors.  The description of how Roehm's brownshirts used violence as a tool of intimidation and to provoke violent overreaction is so Antifa.  How unfortunate our media are too ignorant of history to recognize it.

I don't think that they are ignorant. They just don't recognize it for what it is. They fully believe that their acts of violence are in self defense or are otherwise justified.

I had an opportunity to go to a few Trump rallies. I didn't bother. Why? Because of all the violence directed at Trump supporters. To paraphrase a common thread about avoiding violence that I see often on gun blogs, "Don't go to places where you are going to get into a fight.

I could have attended Trump's inauguration. Again, I felt that I should avoid it because I was afraid that I would be assaulted. And of course there were protesters preventing people from entering the inauguration.

But many media just accepted it.
