Letter: Do not promote Antifa criminals

The “alternative right” is a poorly defined super-group who seem to have no official central narrative.

We are told they consist of disparate groups such as “nazis” and “KKK members,” “Fascists,” “transphobes” and “Islamophobes,” not to mention nearly all conservatives.

How has Canada fallen for such an obvious farce?

Well, I think it’s because the alt-right doesn’t actually exist. It’s a fairy tale. There is no unified extreme right-wing racist movement. What you have been led to believe is that there is a group of right-wingers who have even convinced Dr. Jordan Petersen to join up.

It doesn’t seem to matter that Dr. Petersen has strongly denied any association with the alt-right; because he won’t obey Bill C-16 he is automatically labelled as a “nazi” and an “alt-righter” by Anti-fascist members. This is a clinical psychologist whose day job is healing mental illness, preventing suicides and expanding our understanding of the human mind.

Dressing yourself up as “anti-fascist” is an easy way to become popular with other people who dislike Fascists, which is pretty much everyone. With absolutely zero Fascism in sight since World War II, who are these anti-fascists fighting exactly?

That remains a mystery. We’ve seen the video evidence from these free speech rallies, where Antifa have been caught handing out weapons, violently assaulting protesters, and throwing bottles full of animal urine at speakers.

I think Antifa doesn’t have a target because like the alt-right they do not actually exist. They are nothing but an excuse for bad behaviour.

The red and black flag of the anti-fascist is a clarion call to anyone with a dangerous ambition to get away with criminal activity by calling their actions a “demonstration.”

All they have demonstrated is that they are willing to employ fascism themselves in order to fight their fictional war.
