    This isn't peaceful protesting, isn't anti-nazi, isn't civil, isn't right. And this is just the most recent video I've seen like this and probably you too.

    Why does anyone defend these people??? They should be treated as rioters / domestic terrorists.

    Why are they shouting that they are white males when they themselves are white males?

    It seems you mean the modern incarnation and for the sake of the pedants* the general west coast US and New York approaches.

    *there are those that will tell you it is a thing you do rather than a thing you belong to. At a very technical level this could be true, and amusingly on a practical one this could be as well (you frequently see amusing comments where they only learn of things because they follow people they don't like -- while I am no fan of taking orders I still see the value of a command structure).

    For the most part people with an imaginary enemy and the inability, and perhaps unwillingness, to control the violent shithead element of their crowd. I did wonder if it was tightly edited stuff I saw so I watched hours of raw footage instead, still left with the same opinion.

    I have seen their "manual" and philosophy, even seen those that think it good try to explain it. There are some good ideas, even beyond "blind pig/broken clock" but there are any number of aspects which depart from things I would consider baseline civility and as such those good things are negated and then some. The authoritarian and anti speech/discussion bent really serving to annoy.

    As such very much a net negative in the world.

    Yes, I intended the current-day "movement." I'm aware it goes back to the 30's, when "the Nazis" was actually a thing that resulted in mass genocide, not feelings hurt on Twitter.

    This is just as pointless as asking what people's opinions are on ISIS or neo-nazis. I'd hope you're not going to see a lot of support for extremism regardless of the political/religious ideology behind it.

    They are just extremist fanatics.
    They might be not as well-funded as ISIS, but they are the same shit. And if they got the same funding probably they will be as hurtful also.
    The same goes for PETA and the like.
    All of them terrorists!

    Well, perhaps just to post a comment seeking attention. At least that's what the evidence leads me to believe.

    People (destructively) grasping at something to *belong* to in societies that are becoming increasingly cold and isolated.

    Accelerationism in action.

    It's pretty neat, can't wait for someone to bring a gun.

    Sad, but sounds like a probable motive.

    I don't think anyone likes them.

    My only question about the video is, where the hell are the police?! Why are domestic terrorist directing traffic and blocking roads in your city?

    People worried about antifa are the same people who are fine with the government permanently orphaning hundreds of migrant children. Antifa is such a nothing, there are so many headlines with alt-right violence, and barely ANY from the antifa side, it's an absolute joke. I'm far more worried about your average gun-toting woman-hating Trump supporter going nuts, happens twenty times more often than ANYTHING from the left.

    This is what I like to see - people painting the opposition as cartoon villains. We definitely need more of it.
