Antifa Is Winning

It's sad and infuriating that circa 2018, with the victory of Cheeto Hitler, literal Nazism and Fascism are on the rise in America.  And while destroying these cancers will be messy, there's reason to be optimistic:
"The bottom line is that coordinated anti-fascist action like this has made it incredibly difficult for the 'alt-right' to organize. Major figures like Spencer have had their events turned into platforms for mass opposition, and his speeches shouted down. In 2016, he was able to host a sold out National Policy Institute conference at the famed Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC, but last year, the organization got booted from the unheated barn they were forced to rent. All of the tools they had — online outreach, public events and private meetings — have essentially been stolen from them, and an entire infrastructure of doxxing and protest action have made consequence inevitable. This is not how they build 'the movement of the future.'
In a YouTube video shortly after the Michigan State debacle, Spencer recapped this failure, admitting that anti-fascist organizers had won and they cannot have public appearances anymore.
'I don't think that it's a good idea for me to host an event that is wide open to the public,' Spencer said, lamenting the pressure from anti-fascist groups. 'Things are difficult. We felt that great feeling of winning for a long time. We are now in something that feels a lot more like a hard struggle.'"
To channel the great philosopher Grumpy Cat, good.

The debate over "Free Speech" with Nazis isn't as much about the "Free" as it is about the "Speech."  Cretins like Spencer aren't interested in debate, they simply want to start a shit-storm.  Universities are under no obligation to indulge him or his Stormtroopers.  And good on the various Antifa groups for shining light on the various rats and making them scurry and cry.
