It looks as though the clashes between Antifa and Trump supporters may not be the clear and present danger they appeared.
Note the Antifa flag, seen everywhere at their riots:
According to YouTuber Sargon of Akkad, who seems to know about this stuff, this is the flag of anarcho-communism. And that does not mean, as I first thought, a coalition of anarchists and communists. It means a subgroup of anarchists who also believe in communism.
Now, if this is true, just how large is their pool of potential supporters?
I really don’t think that the number of anarchist communists in America is that large.
At least, then, if it comes to blows, the Antifas should quickly be crushed.
It is also heartening to see that prominent leftist politicians like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have publicly distanced themselves from Antifa. The left is not on board. This is just a lunatic fringe.
Ann Coulter is now planning to speak outdoors in Berkeley’s Sproul Plaza, which, probably not coincidentally, offers maximum potential for a street brawl.
That’s bad, but then it might be over.
