Antifa in Theory and in Practice

I would urge people to generally avoid CounterPunch (where this article was published). They should change their name to CounterIntelligence. It is becoming more and more obvious to me and others that it has been thoroughly penetrated by US counterintelligence agents – if it wasn’t set up as a deliberate front in the first place. This article is a good one, but it’s only there to show how “diverse” they are. In reality, what they actually do is water-down any genuine revolutionary left / Marxist-Leninist analysis. You will likely soon see on CP, if you care to indulge, a spate of attack pieces on Ms. Johnstone; kind of like how they teamed up and pounced on Caitlin Johnstone (no relation) a few months ago. – PC

In recent weeks, a totally disoriented left has been widely exhorted to unify around a masked vanguard calling itself Antifa, for anti-fascist.  Hooded and dressed in black, Antifa is essentially a variation of the Black Bloc, familiar for introducing violence into peaceful demonstrations in many countries. Imported from Europe, the label Antifa sounds more political.  It also serves the purpose of stigmatizing those it attacks as “fascists”. . .
