The fascist group that claims to be against fascism has once again provoked a violent confrontation because of someone expressing a point of view they disagree with. And to make matters worse, some white nationalist clowns showed up to help.
According to reports, protests outside the venue where Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk was speaking were largely peaceful. However, near the end of the event, socialists and self-described anti-fascists clashed with a third group on the campus plaza.
The members of Antifa have a disability when it comes to detecting irony. They remind me of that one Imam who said, during the protests over cartoon depictions of Muhammad, “Stop calling Muslims violent, or we’ll kill you.”
If someone is fascistly anti-fascist does that make them pro-fascism or just neutral? Obviously these idiots aren’t neutral, they’re just projecting their own fascist tendencies onto others. The far left is very good at attacking the right for doing things of which the left is guilty. But you already knew that. It’s already a cliche.
Witnesses say ANTIFA and a white supremacist group are out on the Plaza. Police have released audience members from the Charlie Kirk event, cautioning them to not leave by the Plaza. @CSUCollegian pic.twitter.com/IOTQl9G9Gv

The target of their rage was Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA who has the extremist idea that conservative points of view and free market ideas should be allowed to exist on college campuses without a bunch of stinky, balaclava-wearing idiots attempting to intimidate people into accepting their totalitarian world view. (Or without knuckle-dragging neo-nazis showing up to definitely not help the situation.)
Got heated today after my speech today at Colorado State University
Had ANTFIA, disgusting white-nationalists, and hundreds of protestors outside event
Why free speech is awesome: these handful of radicals screamed at each other while hundreds of students filled our event! pic.twitter.com/HrurGK2ox3

Fascists apparently attract nazis.
The Coloradoan reported people armed with bats, riot shields, gas masks, and large flashlights stormed the area chanting Nazi slogans as a counter-protest to anti-fascist protesters.
No tiki-torches? I guess they’re not a big thing in Colorado.
Nazis and fascists together attract campus police
CSU police Chief Scott Harris issued a dispersal order after the speech due to “a risk of an imminent threat of potential violence” following the speech.
Emeshe Amade, a CSU student who was on the scene, told the Coloradoan that she believes members of the Traditionalist Worker Party, who were tied to anti-immigration fliers that stirred controversy on campus earlier in the week, were present in the violent clash.
The same student also said she witnessed members of the anti-fascists get violently assaulted
These groups will all usually say they were assaulted whether they actually were. When you’re a fascist against fascism or a nazi for the American way, you don’t really have a good handle on the truth. In this case it sounds like things got defused before they got too violent.
