For anybody still in doubt that Antifa’s goal is violent suppression of opposing political viewpoints, it’s a good time to pay attention.

Antifa is a violent movement, originally created to combat the rise of fascism in the 1930s. Obviously, it didn’t work, but the concept was sound. In 2017, roving gangs of masked leftists and anarchists have taken up the name, but have abandoned the cause entirely, inciting violent riots, as well as individual violence against those with whom they disagree.

If you’ve ever played a first-person-shooter, then you know that Nazis are just about the only people you can kill en masse, indiscriminately, and feel pretty good about it. It’s not just the left. The right hates Nazis, too. There was a whole war over it, but that was decades ago, so it’s not entirely surprising to see so many struggling to recollect it, though it’s troubling to see that amnesia extending to college professors.

The neo-Antifa movement has adopted the most fascist tactics available to silence political opponents, which they justify to themselves, and the rest of the political left, by simply saying the word “Nazi” over and over again. Professor Mike Isaacson, teaching at John Jay College, is a perfect example. In an appearance on FOX News, Tucker Carlson took him to task for Antifa’s violent oppression of opposition speech, which Isaacson defended by, as before, just saying “Nazi” a lot.

Isaacson claims to believe in the principle of free speech, and Antifa’s entire existence is dependent on that universal human right, as are all protests, fundamentally. Free speech isn’t a left/right thing, and is central to the very principles upon which America was founded, as well as democratic ideals around the world. Every step of progress we’ve made as a civilization, from women’s suffrage to the civil rights movement, has been largely due to people with unpopular opinions being allowed to assemble and express themselves. There are exceptions, and there are instances of the government silencing free expression, but the principle is inviolable outside of oppressive, often tyrannical regimes. Here are some good examples of governments that do/did not allow free speech: North Korea, the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany.

When Tucker Carlson asked point-blank (around 3:00) whether Richard Spencer has the right to speak in public, Isaacson’s response was indicative of the fascist tendencies of the neo-Antifa terrorists; “I don’t think he has a right to speak in public…” A belief he shares with the rest of Antifa, and is eager to enforce through the use of physical violence. If you’ve read much about the rise of the Nazis in Germany, that will probably sound familiar.

Isaacson is also under fire for a wildly inappropriate tweet, more or less glamorizing the death of police officers, with an August 23rd tweet concluding, “I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.”

With police officers being executed while idling in their patrol car in New York City, his tacit endorsement of their murder, and now-public acknowledgement of his organization’s opposition to the principle of free expression, whenever it suits them, it’s about time to stop pretending President Trump was wrong about Charlottesville.

A recommendation for the left: Denounce your fascists, like the right denounces the neo-nazis, and go from there.

A note to Antifa: Just because it’s called Democratic People’s Republic of Korea does not mean it is Democratic or a People’s Republic. It’s just a violent dictatorship that justifies its oppression as a means to protect the people.

    I saw this Freak on Tucker Carlson last night. He is Delusional! He sorta reminds me of Charles Manson with the way he talks, even his mannerisms sorta reminds me of Charles Manson too.

    • Hairatic Rick

      He is clearly a useless person who needs a gang of like minded people to live out his delusions of power. Sad little psyadelic sissie ❄ snowflakes ❄

    • William Mann

      Let’s not insult Charles Manson now. He has nothing to do with this.

  • Rusty Esq

    Another great article. It’s a shame that Tucker didn’t pick someone like Milo to talk about. But, the academic might have said “no, Milo’s ok, it’s just some fringe antifa that oppose him”.

    Also keep in mind that 50% of the population are average or below average intelligence. Teachers don’t need high grades. This guy needs to be “removed” from teaching for his pro-violence stance.

  • North Korea isn’t a dictatorship. It is a kingdom with an absolute ruler, with the rule handed down through the family.

    • NoTreading

      Good point – they’re ruled by a dynasty, which by definition is a monarchy.

    • Timothy Kevin Ready

      Its an absolute autocracy very reminiscent of both the Romanovs and the Confucian emperors of the Orient’s Medieval past. To quibble about the appropriateness of terms like “dictator” when dealing w/ such a monstrous and absolutist regime really makes little sense…I bring in the Romanovs for comparison because Hitchens pointed out that the “Marxism” of the regime is essentially religious in nature, the current Kim is therefore head of state, head of gov’t, and “metropolitan” of his country’s Holy Synod, the ruling People’s (communist) party…

    • Jesse James

      through the family, violence, assassinations, public executions, and starvation.

      There, fixed it.

    • DaisyToo

      Ask the families held in NOKO’s slave labor camps whether NOKO is a dictatorship. Oh, that’s right, you can’t.

    • Greggore

      And executed by antiaircraft guns!

    • chrisnj

      A distinction without a difference. Stay focused.

  • Doggmaninva

    He’s a complete moron

  • Timothy Kevin Ready

    This guy- who really doesn’t seem all that bad, to be honest, compared to a lot of ANTIFA thugs- thinks that “communities have a right to protect themselves”. I wonder if he believes Sweden has a right to protect ITS communities from the avalanche of rape committed by Muslim “refugees”, or if white American communties have a right to defend themselves against the neo-Black Panther thugs Hussein Obama sent to act as “election observers” at polling places in 2008 and ’12….

  • Greggore

    Yep…pretty much bang on

  • P’tit P’tate

    That neck just screams, “SNAP ME!”

  • Jean Collier

    how could 33 people like that?

  • Pearlbuck

    More like “Professor”… he’s some dipshit adjunct (part time instructor) John Jay hired because he’d teach b.s. gen-ed classes for next to nothing. That’s the real scandal here–the cost-saving measures going on in higher education at the expense of the students. And it’s NOT so the schools can keep tuition down! No, it’s so they can pay all the inflated salaries of the worthless, airheaded administrators who think they–NOT the students or the real professors–are the center of the academic universe.

  • Jim

    Antifa are communist thugs very violent creatures.

  • wormhd883

    this is the kind of crap that teaches your children in college WOW.. and parents accept this kind of man teaching their child.. If I’m paying my daughters ass would not be going to his class… this guy can not be a professor , I just don’t believe it … what the hell….

    Antifa
    is a violent movement, originally created to combat the rise of fascism
    in the 1930s. Obviously, it didn’t work, but the concept was sound.

    Common to Post WWI many political parties had paramilitary arms. Italian Fascist Black Shirts, German Brown Shirts, Franco’s Nationalist Army, and The Democrat Parties KKK. Before the original Anti-Fa of the 1920’s was called Anti-Fa they were the International Communist Workers Party if memory serves. They renamed to fight the Nationalists who practiced a new form of Socialism thought up by Giovanni Gentile and friends including Benito Mussolini called Fascism. Part of why Hitler and Rohm started the brown shirts was because it was common practice and the other part was to defend against the Communist Anti-Fa.

    The Anti-Fa of today are Anarchists primarily and Communist / Socialist secondary. What they all are is Anti-Capitalist. Fascism is to them anything that goes against the part of Postmodernist doctrine that they hold to which is why Misogyny is often listed in the definition of what is Fascist by most of these useful idiots. If you look at the “No, Ben Shapiro:” posters it reads, “The Problem is Fascist Intellectual Thuggery,” as part of it’s statement. So to be intelligent is fascist now because if you can’t win the debate in the open market place of ideas then you have to burn the market place down it seems. Along with every trash can, newspaper box, and Starbucks you come across.

    Onto this stage enter Richard Spencer and those like him. The best thing that Anti-Fa ever did for Richard Spencer was punch him on camera. Spencer has stated that he is not Capitalist but collectivist. If you really look at his politics you come to the understanding that Spencer and the Leftists are pretty much the same with only two differences. First Spencer is Nationalist and not Globalist. Second Spencer is pro white to the point of being a form of soft Nazism and the Leftists are anti white especially white cis hetero male.

    Spencer can use the violence of Anti-Fa as a recruiting tool and gets bonus mileage out of it when places like MSNBC and CNN carry the water for the violent ISIS LARPing group. Eventually if Anti-Fa keep going they will cross a line and individuals like Spencer will use them and the MSM’s cover up of their actions as justification for fighting back. After that Anti-Fa will very quickly fall apart because they are not really organized and anytime one of them says, “We need leaders,” they are quickly reminded that they are all primarily anarchists and don’t believe in leaders of any kind. Spencer believes very much in structure and order so when he does field street muscle it will be very organized, and probably well trained.

  • Barbara Ballard

    ANTIFA is a very small amount of people in comparison to the population of America. They do not represent the American people. Declared terrorists. Will be incarcerated and loose there right to vote. Sounds like a great plan to me. Do Not Engage them.

    • Ralph Kern

      See RED GUARD.

    • GTKRWN

      You’re right, they don’t represent the American people. They represent communist-worshiping psuedo-Marxists clumsily trying to follow the teachings of the Frankfurt School, which is the religion of the liberal and the globalist jew pushing and supporting this violence every day.

  • ActivistAngel

    This is part of a well funded, deep effort by the corporate pedophile enabling terrorists to justify their censorship of anything that might expose their corruption. The left/right thing is a distraction and divide and conquer. Look at the Franklin scandal, as shown in the documentary “Conspiracy Of Silence.” There are plenty of seriously evil fiends in both “parties.” The Bush and Clinton crime families and the Domestic Enemy “media” all hate Trump and are fighting back against the good guys that want to end the terrible things they do to children. The only way, they think, is to gain control of the internet by giving themselves the right to violate the first amendment in the name of “fighting hate.” Google, twitter and facebook are the real dangerous entities, and are showing their true colors blatantly now, any time someone on the left or the right wakes up to the corruption of the elite by de-monetizing or even shutting down channels, accounts and posts. My comments frequently disappear, or are shadow banned. Perhaps this one…
    Milo, satanic abuse is not “moral panic.” It’s real.

  • Epicification

    And not a word about the length of the guy’s neck. Good for you taking the high road.

  • Robin of Hood

    They believe that words are violence and that only they have the right to decide who can speak.
    Has this idiot heard of the NDVK, with Stalin’s death squads?

  • Dante Alighieri ????

    ✂ “…The right hates Nazis, too…”

    No doubt true. But Presidential Declarations like: “You also had some very fine people on both sides” don’t help the Conservative cause.

    • M. N.

      The truth be told, there are a lot of people who value history and believe those statues are reflective of the story – from both sides. This was a march to protest the taking down of historical statues – there were plenty of non-violent, good people there who just wanted their voices heard. Unfortunately bad apples on both sides gave it a black eye. DT was correct as there were very fine people on both sides.

  • LazyReader

    If not
    for STEM, Bus Ad, and Boalt, Cal would be just another Ole Miss or
    Evergreen College with plummeting enrollment. Cal has bloated its Letter
    and Sciences with too many anti intellectual majors. Any major that
    includes the word “Studies” should probably be scrapped.

  • Eric Selin

    pencil necked geek socialist loser. He hasn’t learned anything but he’s teaching? That college is going to deserve what they are about to get once people discover this idiot is teaching there.
