In years past, you have read stories of the Palestinian’s “Intifada” against Israelis. Intifada is an Arabic word whose meaning is “rebellion” or “resistance”. This resistance often takes the form of violent action, such as the “knife intifada” of 2015 that consisted of stabbing attacks on citizens in Israel.
In America today, we are in the midst of resistance as well, and it’s also often violent. Instead of anti-fascists, or “Antifa”. I call them fascists because they use similar tactics to their 20th century predecessors. The Antifas are a minority, but they want the majority to bow to their will. They attempt to convince Americans that anyone that doesn’t adhere to their ideology is wrong-headed and dangerous. They are willing to use methods like false news and violence to silence certain groups (in this case, conservatives).
