A new video shows that despite the fact that many Antifa (“antifascist”) protesters claim to oppose fascism, they’re not entirely sure what it even is.
Campus Reform‘s Cabot Phillips recently interviewed leftists who were protesting the conservative campus group Turning Point USA to ask them what they thought fascism is.
One man said, “I certainly count myself as Antifa. We do not think that fascists and ultra right-wingers, the alt-right, deserve to have a platform.”
Another protester, when asked to define fascism, said, “I don’t really want to get into all of that history and stuff,” adding, “I don’t want to talk about it right now.”
Phillips later said, “That’s a serious thing though, to call somebody a Nazi and a fascist, but you have to know what it is though if you’re going to call them that.”
The protester then informed him that he thought Phillips was a Nazi, to which the Campus Reform correspondent asked again, “Can you tell me what a Nazi and a fascist is though?”
The leftist protester answered, “Yeah I don’t want to answer any more questions, thanks.”
