    Wow dude.

    Many churches sent people to oppose fascism. They stated that was their purpose. There was no spot for Antifa, just protesters and counter protesters.

    You noted that gun owners are not a monolithic group. But you present Antifa as monolithic.
    Because Antifa is something you join and are a member of. They all wear black and most wear masks. They have a freaking uniform!

    Now if you want to group some gun owners similarly, you could talk about NRA members, for instance.

    Does Antifa have membership cards or a secret handshake?

    Remember 2017? It was not that long ago. Your distinctions on Antifa and non-Antifa was largely absent among conservative commentators which did not recognize fine distinctions. Trump's "fine people" comment launched a war of words in which defenders did not acknowledge any distinctions among counter protesters.

    Many of the counter protesters did see themselves as natural allies with the Antifa, who were willing to make a stand against fascists, while rejecting the anarchist and violent means employed.

    There were two groups, protesters and counterprotesters. And churches proudly sent their members to stand against fascists.

    One group which left almost no record were the protesters who melted away when it became apparent that the rally was a front for fascism, organized by fascists, and a promotion of fascism. https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/...harlottesville

    Yes it is from splc. But the rally banner used to promote the rally was in the news in the lead up to the rally, and parallels the name chosen for the rally, Unite the Right. Disparate groups united in a common cause.

    ..and local chapters that people join. People claim to be "members" of Antifa.

    And they are not anti-fascists. They ARE fascists. If your political views don't align with theirs, they want to shut you up. With rocks and beat downs.

    Maybe the secret handshake is one of these, and the others are subterfuge?
