Here’s Everything You Need To Know About The Antifa Network That’s Trying To Solidify A Nazi-Punching Movement

They are, to their critics, the mirror image of white supremacist groups — including old ones like the Ku Klux Klan and the rebranded “alt-right” — with ideologists and, between them, a rising body count. In fact, and unlike those groups, antifa is more an attitude and an image than an organized movement — though in an age of young men drawing radical politics from images on social media, it has the potential to become one.

Antifa’s forebears — anarchists, leftist unions, European Communists, and socialists — have been around for decades. But it took a media age like our own to weave them into a coherent, Nazi-punching movement. That includes a conservative media that sought to define them, a social media harnessed to promote extremism, and a burgeoning radical media that has given those groups a voice they haven’t had since the days of Ramparts and the old Village Voice. And they’ve been treated with a confusing mixture of sympathy and hostility for their stated mission of “anti-fascism” by a mainstream media at odds with itself over how to describe them.



Why weren’t the women outraged BEFORE I lost? Now Clinton blames female voters for her defeat in new book – and attacks Matt Lauer too

Hillary Clinton has added another name her long list of grievances about those who cost her the election, this time singling out energized anti-Trump women marchers for failing to deliver before her historic loss.

Clinton referenced the throngs of protesters who took the streets of Washington and other cities in a Women’s march shortly after his election. But her thoughts moved from the calls to resistance to the Trump agenda to why they hadn’t summoned that same passion for her own campaign.

We’re all to blame. We let her down.

Disqus Working With Google’s Jigsaw On ‘Toxic’ Comment Filter

The current moderator tools in Disqus allows users to filter out comments by IP address, by words, and even via links. What’s more is that if those tools aren’t enough, users can manually block, report or ban users on the actual comment threads. Well, apparently that’s not enough, which is why Disqus has added a new “Toxic” filter for moderators to use in order to censor or ban comments.


Administration Sources: Creepy Tweet Was a Coded Message to General McMaster About Leakers

A story fantastically strange, dancing between lowbrow and stupid, and it matters: this masterwork of a news item belongs in a time capsule, one day making the case to our descendants that we were, at least, blessed to live in interesting times.

Because this sort of thing happens in 2017, an alt-right crank who hasn’t won anyone’s trust beyond that of his loyal travelers seems to have become the white-whale obsession of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.


Good doggies!
