In Month After Charlottesville, Papers Spent as Much Time Condemning Anti-Nazis as Nazis

Adam Johnson

Since the Charlottesville attack a month ago, a review of commentary in the six top broadsheet newspapers—the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, USA Today, LA Times, San Jose Mercury News and Washington Post—found virtually equal amounts of condemnation of fascists and anti-fascist protesters.

The art and science of blaming victims while rewarding perpetrators keeps rising to new heights in Murka.

Goebbels would be proud.


#3

The “both sides scam” is simply another neoliberal ploy designed to undermine the one rational alternative to the status quo – socialism.


#4

The Oligarchs that control what the Mainstream Media reports, have adopted the Nazi ideology.

Trust MSM at your own peril.


#5

More evidence that Trump is not an anomaly or aberration…just the next stage in the oligarchs’ moving the US toward neofeudalism wherein the 1% own everything and the 99% own nothing.

Yes, the MSM is an echo chamber for the white power and privileges intertwined with gov’t policies, protecting the propertied class. This is our American history and since the white supremacists support this power and privilege, with lethal force if necessary, they are perfect to use as shock troops. The more useful idiots the better, as the owners of the levers of gov’t powers, would say. Trump would simply say, " my base ", of course.
Antifa, as a leftist self-defense collective, would certainly pose a threat to these supremacist shock troops of white power and privilege. The MSM’s entire raison d’tere being to sell products and services to these wealthy, mostly white, consumers; it’s their ultimate and only honest aim, of course. The status quo reinforcing the monied classes’ need for order and class continuity, to ensure ongoing poltical privilege, as it were. White hand meet white glove, meet white power, meet white supremacy, meet white violence, pretty much.
Antifa is an antidote and disruptive force to all this coziness among the elites, of course. Not because they are dangerous like the Alt-Right, but because they simply are. As in, they are here, at all. Hence, the move by Homeland Security ( Big Brother ) to deem them domestic terrorists as well ( As was reported by a State Senator; Patriot Prayer, Oathkeepers and 3%ers openly assisting and communicating with the police 06/04 in Portland, Or. ). This is the the intertwining of interests that continued white privilege demand, and the MSM marketers mostly obliging and genuflecting to.
This is not going to end well. But, it’s certainly not going to end soon, either. Herr Trump and his ragtag army aren’t going to be driven underground by this current collection of plutocrats and kleptocrats. There’s just too much money supporting their side. " Money has it privileges ", after all. So it goes…
P.S. Allan Dershowitz is a tool for AIPAC and other pro-Israeli groups who really don’t want any connections being made about our Federal gov’ts trying to smother the BDS movement, and what he says about the Antifa groups. He’s shown himself to being what many have long suspected; just another special pig eating at the trough of the Animal Farm. His mouth always goes where the power and money is.

Very important analysis. The NY Times and Washington Post apparently get it for the most part. The white supremacists represent a real danger to society as a whole. The violent tactics of the anti-fa should not be condoned but this is a fringe group that doesn’t represent a real threat. The anti-fa often detracts from peaceful protests and causes problems on the campuses of public colleges by trying to shut down free speech. That pales in comparison to threat represented by the neo-Nazis, KKK, etc. White supremacist violence has been occurring rather often and has resulted in many deaths. At its more extreme, the demands are for a separate white country within the US or ethnic cleansing of the US. The white supremacists thrive on hate toward blacks in particular and also often Jews. They seems to reject the US Constitution and instead support a country for whites of European ancestry. Many of the white supremacists believe in a genetic theory which says whites are a superior race. There is nothing equivalent between these fascists and the anti-fa.

What a misrepresentation. They condemned Antifata not anti-Nazis. Big difference.


#9

There are no violent tactics among Antifa. They are self defense measures and, as such, are simply survival tactics in a country which overwhelmingly supports historical and engrained white privilege and orthodoxy. Stop defending the hierarchy of whiteness, predestination and class. You’re feeding the beast of white racism and white American Exceptionalism. This is not a test.
