Conservative leadership candidate Derek Sloan embraces Trump policy, attacks those fighting fascism - 2020-06-02
Antifa – short for anti-fascist – is a protest movement that emerged in the wake of the white supremacist "Unite the Right" rally. Donald Trump announced on Sunday that he is designating Antifa as a terrorist organization – a move that itself makes little sense since Antifa is an amorphous movement rather than an organization.
For years, the far-right has used Antifa as a bogeyman to justify their own reprehensible actions. Trump's scapegoating of this group of protestors was a stepping stone to his threatened invocation of the Insurrection Act to quash peaceful protests with military force.
