Michael Harriot: “Yes, Anti-Fascists are Violent … and Necessary”

“The problem with the antifa movement is that many of them are anarchists who don’t believe in organized institutions, so it is hard to tell what their beliefs are. Some of them believe that if the public sees that there are more anti-fascists than there are white supremacists, regular, fence-riding citizens won’t feel pressured to join the fascist movements out of popularity. Some of them believe in fighting fascism with education. And some of them believe that the only way to fight tyranny is with force.”
