Did The Pandemic Kill Antifa Groups?

Recommended Posts

With colleges closed and the left-wing media telling their drones to shelter in place, it appears that radical far-left extremism has dropped off the radar for now. The question is, does this movement later resurface with a vengeance, or has the lockdown finally knocked some sense into these kids?

If these subreddits are anything to go by, I'm not particularly concerned. There is very little in the form of actual organization or calls to action right now, and the most recent posts appear to consist only of edgy socialist memes and tips for snowflakes on coping with the lockdown.

 

Do we know of any other places these people would communicate openly online so we can monitor and/or subvert them? Should we even care? They seem to be weakening, and with Trump Derangement Syndrome on the decline, who knows how long their existence will even continue. Still, never underestimate hormonal teenagers.

Interesting. I was always under the assumption that it wasn't so much of a network as it was independent groups of loosely organized copycats held together only by identical school cirriculums and news media talking points. An organic outcome of carefully coordinated leftist brainwashing if you will.

 

If what you're saying is true, then there must be some sort of entry point. A place where the common dumbass who wants to join can enter the ranks and gain access to their communications. Where is that though? 4chan? Somewhere on the deep web? It should be a priority to figure this out, if we don't know already.

 

This is all assuming these people are actual threats, of course. I've seen their stupid grafitti around college towns here in Pennsylvania, and I know they trashed this cop's bar in Philadelphia earlier this year. That was before the lockdown, though. I get the feeling a lot have changed their tune since then. Either way, they don't scare me, but they might prove to be useful idiots if turned against our enemies. Just a thought.

Appreciate the explanation and the graphic. This is valuable information to have out there.

 

If I'm understanding correctly, you believe we're just seeing the lower "active supporter" nodes go quiet while the puppet masters are still operating in the shadows.

 

I think you hit the nail on the head as to why nihilist radicals are a concern. It takes a lot more to build and maintain a civilized society than it does to tear one down.
