@JingleXDingle Life After Hate. Listen to a former neo-Nazi skin head https://t.co/HQHdMlVhtk

When an entire group of people want you dead, pacifism is pathological. Condemning those willing to fight back as much as necessary, even more so. Thank you, #Antifa. I stand with you. Punch Nazis! Wish I could. https://t.co/Gp2IFrbaLh

People say antifa are “terrorist” fact of the matter is, right wing racist / proud boys is homegrown terrorism get milk shakes, mayo thrown on you, a couple of punches thrown, but we get killed. Seems like a small price to pay for taking our lives and our families. #antifa https://t.co/SdPhm70CVw

@robbystarbuck @tedwheeler Don't be fooled -- antifa is not a terrorist group, nor a hate group but one that counterprotests when there are organized hate rallies. Proud Boy hate groups are found on the Southern Poverty Law Canter, which tracks over 1,020 hate groups in the U.S. https://t.co/C474u8uC2Q
