Хроники антифашизма

Right-wing paramilitaries have been training for years, descendants of the militias of the 1990s, reawakened by their horror that a black man had been elected president of the United States. They have uniforms, insignia, traditions and, not least, stockpiles of weapons. Not only do they thrive under a friendly president, but open-carry states like Virginia enable them to intimidate peaceful assemblies. For the racist right, violence is not only a tactic, it is a calling card.

Это из статьи в New York Times про антифа. Называется статья Who’s Afraid of Antifa? Краткое содержание: “In a world where racist movements form an archipelago of brown-walled islands — with friendly governments in power in Hungary, Poland and the United States — antifa fights back, and although not murderous, is not squeamish about its means.” Автор, само собой, professor of journalism and sociology at Columbia.

Тем временем в Беркли одержана очередная победа над фашистами: Black-clad antifa members attack peaceful right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley

Про республиканцев

Губернатор Иллинойса, республиканец, законы подписывает:

Gov. Bruce Rauner Monday signed into law one bill that would protect immigrants who are in the country illegally from being detained solely because of their immigration status and another that would automatically register many Illinoisans to vote.

Да они нарочно

It’s exceptionally stupid to proclaim yourself literally anti-American when some of your fellow travelers on the left are working hard to portray you as defending American values from the alt-right. But then, most radicals are exceptionally stupid.
