Re: Left wing terroism
The government has labelled Antifa a terrorist organization. The fact that you don't know that should concern you.

You might be right. Since the official list is not available to the public, it's difficult to tell for sure.

As I understand it, the politics of Antifa are to be anti-far right wing. That does not make them left wing/liberal. Maybe a lot of Antifa is made up of non-lunatic fringe conservatives?

Re: Antifa

Um no. I would bet a few bucks and say they are all "lefties". Nice try though. Or perhaps you are in denial? Like the Democrat leadership is?

I have no idea of what the political leanings of Antifa are, and I doubt you do. Certainly they are to the left of what they are opposing. So if you define "lefties" as "not of the far right fringe", I grant you that you are probably correct.

I recently read a Rachel Maddow quote somewhere - She said something along the lines of "Politically I lean to the left. I am rather in line with Eisenhower era Republicans".
