The Roots of #Antifa:

The extremist anarchist-communist group was initially part of the #SovietUnion’s front operations to bring about #Communist dictatorship in #Germany, and it worked to label all rival parties as “fascist.” (Thread👇)…
#Antifa can be traced to the “united front” of the #SovietUnion’s Communist International (Comintern) during the Third World Congress in #Moscow in June and July 1921, according to the German booklet “80 Years of Anti-Fascist Action” by Bernd Langer, published by…
…the Association for the Promotion of Anti-Fascist Culture.

Langer is a former member of the Autonome Antifa, formerly one of #Germany’s largest #Antifa organizations, which disbanded in 2004.…

Re: @Econbrkfst False Logic:

"I'm not sure why Mr. Eng is so concerned with my alleged transphobia, sexism, general bigotry" (your perspective)

"and not that of Mr. Eng's new friend/obsession Brandon Farley or that of Eli Richey"
(False Conclusion)

Of Course i am Concerned.
why does Nick Lee of @Econbrkfst engage in wild speculations and false conclusions

about the accounts of people he Pre-emptively blocks, excessively writes about, and leavs with no easy way to respond.
Nick Lee of @Econbrkfst engages in the very impolite form of debate, by getting easily triggered and offended, blocking account, passive aggressively tweeting outrageous things about blocked account, and violating privacy of his twitter account blockee.

my holiday message for purim is may all would-be genocidaires meet the same end as he did: strung up in the public square. fuck nazis forever and across time. may you watch your legacy die in front of you. and may the communities you target defend themselves. #purim #antifascism
the moral of #purim is: fuck around and find out. the moral of #purim is self defense against state violence and genocide. it's a pretty radically antifascist holiday.
and to underscore the point here's the polish-jewish artist arthur szyk's rendering of the hanging of haman. we boo and jeer haman's name not because he is uniquely evil, but because his emissaries recur in every generation. and we will never stop fighting back. #Purim2020

1. please RT ad nauseam

I don't think it's on English speaking outlets yet:

There is a #RIGHTWING COUP being organized in plain site in #Brasil BY #Bolsonaro , his corrupt law enforcement apparatus and organized crime NOW.

2. He has "scheduled" a demonstration for his supporters, for March 15, to CLOSE THE CONGRESS. This is what is called an "auto-Coup" - not a new thing and as bad as one that deposes a democratically elected ruler.
3. The news below are in Portuguese. As soon as I can I'll add whatever is published in English. I can't do that now (write the news story): I'm not there with the sources and I don't have time to produce a good story today.

#Antifascism Primer

1a.) Antifascism is opposition to fascist ideologies, groups & individuals.

1b.) Antifascism has no centralized power structure.
It’s a network.

1c.) Antifascism was borne in Italy to oppose the creator of fascism, Benito Mussolini.
1d.) Fascism's centralized, hierarchical, brutal & thorough oppression…

1e.) …demanded a decentralized, anon (if possible), defensive network to oppose it: Antifascism.

1f.) During WWII, antifascist actions ranged from leafletting to bombing where necessary.
1g.) Post WWII, Antifa actions are still defensive. Opposition takes many forms.

1h.) When the RW is violent, Antifascists answer in kind.

1i.) No person has died due to Antifascist defensive actions.

1j.) As of 2017, 387 people died due to RW violence.

After the antifascist protest in #Portland, #antifa is under attack from all sides once again. What is #antifascism really about? We actually made an entire issue about the topic: "Not This Time!"…
"Just as fascism re-emerges from the shadows of the past, so the anti-fascist resistance must now rise to the occasion and claim center stage in a new cycle of struggles." — @ROAR_Magazine collective #Antifa…
"Fascism is possible not in spite of liberal capitalism, but because of it. Both historically and philosophically, fascism is rooted in the same Western tradition as liberalism. " — @_erikforman #Antifa…

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
