(en) Czech, AFED: USA: antifa everywhere! [machine translation]

Date Fri, 4 Oct 2019 09:17:32 +0300


In the United States, anti-fascism and anti-fascists have built respect in the streets and in football stadiums. ---- The success of emancipatory movements in the United States, such as Occupy Wall Street or the Black Lives Matter campaign, as well as the social disruption caused by neoliberal dogmas, triggered a hysterical reaction by the archaic branch of the conservative right, often referred to as paleoconservatism. At the same time, the virtual ultra-right Alt-Right movement in his womb at the same time, which is today a kind of attractive, almost hipster alternative to the old-fashioned barracks concept of white superiority, is today a neo-fascist and neo-Nazi movement. ---- The invasion of multicultural coexistence, the emancipation of women, the struggle for their rights, and the efforts to save the planet have become the norm thanks to the tramping of liberals and bourgeois democrats, the mass media hungry for any sensation, and especially the messiah on top post, Donald Trump. Threats soon turned into action, and in the Alt-Right environment, neo-Nazi terrorists began to gain confidence. Between May 23, 2014 and January 2, 2018, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reports thirteen ultra-rightist attacks, resulting in 43 dead and 67 wounded.

Where the state fails, or where the state wants to fail, ordinary people have to cope with themselves, start defending themselves and stealing the space that ultra-rightists have given institutions. The clashes between ultra-rightists and anti-fascists have attracted the attention of the mass media, and have sparked heated debates behind a large puddle. Andrew Anglin wrote on the Daily Stormer neo-Nazi site: "Large rallies in public places where we know there will be a confrontation with the antipa are not a good idea." bison-sized wrestlers, spotty incels, southern bikers, or wrinkled paleoconservatives.

Liberals and non-liberals in positions now note. Both camps are the same. "Extremism" is a problem. The media simulate a civil war and hard-clad men try to pacify the leftist mob. But ultra-right killers, violent rioters, and hypocritical politicians, however, will not discourage the masses of ordinary people who are mobilizing to breathe new life into the streets. They convene meetings, form coalitions, people and groups work together to get rid of racist annoyers. The predominance of anti-fascist attitudes in football stadiums became so pronounced that the football association came out with a ban on political symbols in the summer. However, after numerous protests and discussions with fan clubs, the three-arrow symbol, taken from the German pre-war militant sidecar Eiserne Front, which became very popular on American tribunes, was exempted from the ban.

Despite the mundane reality of trampling on the achievements of emancipatory movements and normalizing racial violence, anti-fascists and anti-fascists in the United States have been successful in building the movement in the streets and have been able to drive the fascists and ultra-conserves back to the junkyard of history. Successful anti-fascist mobilisations have been able to prevent further violence and murder by Alt-Right supporters at a time when the state and police are actively clearing space for the fascists. The bourgeois-democratic institutions are failing again grossly, being inactive against the growing threat of fascism, and on the contrary becoming the last safe place for Alt-Right supporters to hide.

The past year in the United States has shown that a growing anti-fascist movement is not only ethically superior, it becomes a mass movement and the only force able to confront neo-fascist killers!
