Antifa Violence Will End Badly

Fascists against Fascism: Come again?
A former Marine and blogger by the name of David Risselada published on Freedom Outpost an interesting and probing analysis of Antifa, “Antifa: Useful Idiots Too Brainwashed to Know They are Being Used.”

They are so brainwashed, writes Risselada, that they refuse – nay, are unable to see the contradictions pregnant in their violent actions – because contradictions are either “white” constructs of the privileged order, or are direct permutations of Communist/Nazi ideology, and therefore can be dismissed with a fist in the face or a kick in the head. They do not believe in debate; their only recognized form of argumentation is physical violence. The brown shirts in training (other than college students) propose to oppose fascism by adopting fascist activism, which employs the physical obstruction of freedom of speech (and other civil liberties) with violent and passive means (but mostly violent). Britannica defines and discusses fascism:

Although fascist parties and movements differed significantly from each other, they had many characteristics in common, including extreme militaristic nationalism, contempt for electoral democracy and political and cultural liberalism, and a belief in natural social hierarchy and the rule of elites, and the desire to create a Volksgemeinschaft (German: “people’s community”), in which individual interests would be subordinated to the good of the nation.

Hundreds executed as traitors to Soros?
Ostensibly, Antifa poses as being an anti-establishment force to contend with, when in practice and in ideology (what there is of one) it is and will remain part of the establishment, as a kind of Mafia enforcer. There are no “victims” of Antifa violence. Only “fascists.” Risselada writes:

Across the nation, the group Antifa is continuing its call for revolution by staging massive riots and acts of violence against innocent people. They are pushing the narrative that they are engaged in a revolutionary struggle against Fascism and that the time to act is now in order to stand against oppression. They have been brainwashed to believe that America represents racism and our constitution was written only to protect the interests of a few privileged white men. They are demanding an end to constitutional government and the enactment of a communist system which they believe will be fairer. In this facebook video posted by Columbus Ohio Antifa, they are asking military veterans to remember their oaths and join their national militia. Obviously, these people have no idea what they are talking about nor do they have any clue what it means to take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Are they brainwashed at all? Many have been in their education; others of Antifa are just thugs who are criminals with or without a cause to rationalize their actions, because reasons to them are irrelevant. Contradictions do not bother them; they are treated by Antifa, the Democrats, and the federal educational establishment as “white” constructs and the “deplorable” hobgoblins of “reason-clingers.” The U.S. public school system is dedicated now more than it was in the past to countering, vilifying, or erasing whatever American values or allegiances a young person may have grown up with, absorbed from his parents, or absorbed from the culture at large.

Bertrand Russell, the anti-war and anti-nuclear energy advocate and very anti-man British philosopher, long ago championed the brainwashing of children to produce more “desirable” and compliant citizens. He quoted, very approvingly, Gottlieb Fitche, the German philosopher who agreed with Immanuel Kant’s anti-mind and anti-reality philosophy. Russell said himself:

"Scientific societies are as yet in their infancy… It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished. . . . Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. . . .”----Bertrand Russell,1953

Risselada had the presence of mind to further quote Russell, who had no objection to Gottlieb Fitche’s deliberate and conscious mind-sabotaging philosophy of education:

"Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished ... The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen” Bertrand Russell quoting Johann Gottlieb Fichte, the head of philosophy & psychology who influenced Hegel and others – Prussian University in Berlin, 1810 (University of Jena)

Josef Stalin admired Hitler’s purging methods
Antifa members would agree with the original Fascist, Benito Mussolini – without knowing who he was – and only because it sounds right. The sound bytes would be copasetic with the poisonous glop that passes for an Antifa mind:

The only official definition of Fascism comes from Benito Mussolini, the founder of fascism, in which he outlines three principles of a fascist philosophy.

1."Everything in the state". The Government is supreme and the country is all-encompassing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body, often a dictator.
2."Nothing outside the state". The country must grow and the implied goal of any fascist nation is to rule the world, and have every human submit to the government.
3."Nothing against the state". Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.

That’s as good a description of the goals of a global Islamic caliphate as you can find, as well. Everything in Islam, nothing outside Islam, nothing against Islam. Is it any wonder that the Left sides with Islam?

Our educational establishment has done a thorough job of sabotaging American children’s cognitive faculties and their sense of their selves as individuals. Fichte has had industrious successors on this side of the Atlantic, such as John Dewey (1859-1952), Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914), and William James (1842–1910). They and their disciples have had a lot of time – generations, in fact – to insinuate anti-conceptual and anti-reason pragmatism in virtually every realm of pedagogical philosophy.

Many influential followers of Dewey are in agreement with how to raise and teach children:

"…through schools of the world we shall disseminate a new conception of government – one that will embrace all of the collective activities of men; one that will postulate the need for scientific control and operation of economic activities in the interests of all people."Harold Rugg, student of psychology and a disciple of John Dewey

"Education does not mean teaching people to know what they do not know – it means teaching them to behave as they do not behave." National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) sponsored report: The Role of Schools in Mental Health

The latter publication complains:

Periodicals and the press have been filled recently with attacks on schools. A favorite target has been the practice of making "life adjustment" and "a healthy personality for every child" educational goals at the alleged expense of the three R's.

Antifa has yet to place an order with still tailoring
 Hugo Boss; until then they will remain masked slobs.
“Alleged?” It’s a fact. . Fusion had this revealing article on the failure of public schools to teach “the three R’s.”

The researchers asked 3,278 people 12 picture-based or multiple choice questions about science, including what a light-year measures, what determines the loudness of sound, and that types of waves were used to make cell phone calls. A mere 6% got a perfect score. Half of the respondents managed to answer more than eight questions correctly.  The rest got the equivalent of an F on the test. Yikes.

Risselada has some sobering news for all the smug Antifa members. Once the “revolution” has achieved its goal of bringing down the nation, they will be purged.

Unfortunately, Antifa fails to realize that they are nothing but useful idiots being used to accomplish an agenda they do not understand. They are the shock troops being used to finish the final phase of demoralizing America through a process known as Ideological Subversion…..

Unfortunately for groups like Antifa, the need for stricter order and the accomplishment of the goals they are seeking will bring them to a crashing end. As mentioned earlier, communists have a history of taking out their own first.

This is done for two reasons. One, these useful idiots are being taught that communism represents an utopian paradise where everyone lives in total equality. Unfortunately, they fail to realize that total equality means the equality of living in squalor. Once they realize they have been taken for fools they will surely focus their aggression on their leash-handlers who will then see the need to make an example out of them. They will be taken out to stop the undermining of government which of course, groups like Antifa have already demonstrated a willingness to do.

There are many precedents for thinning out revolutionary shock troops. The most prominent one is the “Night of the Long Knives”:

A year later, with Hitler’s power almost absolute, only the excesses of the SA and their bull-necked leader, Ernst Rohm (pictured), troubled the dictator. Their violence, which as a revolutionary during the 1920s, Hitler would have endorsed, had become an embarrassment to the Chancellor. Having gained power through the proper process Hitler wanted to win over the German people and international opinion through legitimate means not by force.

But Rohm and the SA felt that Hitler was going soft and had not given them their due reward for helping the Nazis into power. They started talking of a ‘second revolution’ with Rohm the leader of the People’s Party, greatly alarming the industrialists and businessmen that Hitler had managed to woo. Rohm wanted also to merge the army with the SA under his command, which, in turn, alarmed the army and its chief, Werner von Blomberg.

The nattily attired predecessors of Antifa
On the weekend of 30 June – 1 July 1934, in what was to become known as the Night of the Long Knives, Hitler acted. Members of the SS stormed a hotel in the village of Bad Wiessee where the SA had gathered for a weekend of homosexual debauchery, pulled Rohm and his henchmen from their beds and had them arrested. Most were promptly executed on the spot, except for Rohm. Hitler took it upon himself to arrest Rohm personally, marching into his hotel room and, brandishing a revolver, yelled, “You’re under arrest, you pig”.

Rohm was taken to a Munich prison, along with other SA leaders, and there awaited his fate. But Hitler, in a fit of nostalgia, found it difficult to order his murder. Instead, he offered Rohm the chance to kill himself. On 1 July, a revolver was left on the table in his cell and he was given ten minutes. Rohm refused, saying, ‘If I am to be killed, let Adolf do it himself’. When the ten minutes had elapsed and no shot heard, an SS officer marched in and killed the bare-chested Rohm at point blank range.

Hitler took the opportunity to purge anyone whom he disliked or had crossed him in the past, including the last Chancellor of the Weimar Republic, Kurt von Schleicher. The Night of the Long Knives claimed over 200 lives. Hindenburg congratulated his chancellor for having acted so swiftly. The army, relieved to be freed from its main rival, sided with Hitler…..

 Knowing something about the fates of Ernest Rolm and his fellow conspirators ought to serve as a warning to Antifa. It may boast of numbers, skill at terrorism, of “fist-power,” but it would never be a match for the elites they have kept in power in the “Deep State.” A purge is in the cards.


  1. Another great article, Ed. Thanks!

    One typo near the top:
    "nay, are unable to see the contradictions pregnant in their violent actions – because contractions are either “white” constructs of the privileged order..."

    Is "contractions" your typo or Risselada's in need of [sic]?

    1. It was Risselada's error. I just copied and pasted his text.

  2. Another mistake. There is no such thing as an ex-Marine. We are Marines once and always. The change is forever.


    1. My apologies. One of my past editors was a Marine, saw action on Iwo Jima, and then later in China. A very dear friend. He was all of 17 on Iwo.

  3. Very intelligent and insightful post!

  4. Great article Ed.... not sure how I missed this one. Based on the date I was likely deployed.

  5. Good iob,but you are falling into the same trap you accuse Antifa of falling into through your Islamophobia and warmongering serving the purposes of the minitary-industrial complex.We should join with our opposite numbers in the socialist and Islamic movements to destroy our common enemies in the milquetoast and the world elite.
