    Well, since I taught a poli sci class for roughly 25 years, then maybe even you can connect those dots.

    BTW, Antifa is sort of an informal type group that rose to counter white nationalism, and it's more the latter that has fed forms of terrorism. To call "Antifa a "terrorist group", which is a terribly misguided stereotype, while not mentioning white nationalism, is really quite "telling". Going by your definition, then I guess we have to call Trump and his staff "terrorists", especially with what we saw them do in Georgetown against the peaceful protesters.

    Will Das Fuehrer Drumpf/Trump dismantle the FBI in his attacks to support his fascist regime and his jack-booted black-shirts? Trump tweets unfounded claim Buffalo protester injured by police could be 'Antifa provocateur'

    Should Das Fuhrer Trump declare martial law now that he told his gun-hugging supporters that a well regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state in order to shoot blacks and anti-fascists.

    They're easily enough prevented. Just keep the police at bay.

    Antifa is a vicious, terrorist organization. Liberals and CNN are morally, intellectually, and spiritually-challenged nitwits.

    That's because Das Fuhrer Trump and his jack-booted black-shirts are white supremacist fascists.

    It was an organization -- 80 years ago, in Germany. Today it's barely a movement, just an scattering of local, self styled anarchist or black bloc groups of various political persuasions. They're often destructive hooligans attracted to demos or large gatherings, but they're not affiliated with the BLM or police reform movements; and "vicious terrorists?" I think that may be rather an exaggeration.

    I've seen them on TV. They're vicious terrorists - or vicious criminals if you prefer.

    That's how we've had to live through much of this country's history. Especially back when there were no phones, no cars, and the closest law enforcement officer was 20 miles away.

    I wouldn't call it "anarchy," but people had to learn to deal with their own problems and not call the police over every little thing, as most people are wont to do nowadays.

    Got any evidence to support your claims?

    Anything at all?

    No?

    Thought not. Just because you really really wish something was true doesn't make it so. Same way no matter how hard you wish trump would stop being an embarrasment and an authoritarian wannabe, it doesn't change it.

    What TV channel did you see them on?

    What show?

    How did you know they were ANTIFA?

    What were they doing that led you to believe they were terrorists or vicious criminals.
