Big companies for starters.

Yep.
How about something more concrete and add a scale of 10 to this 'scale'?

If you made sense in anything you posted, I might have given enough respect to read your links.


IF.

Since you don't, and since all you've done is bullshit your way into answering nothing, why waste my time?

I'm asking you cause it's something you agree with.
From Wikipedia.

The Antifa (/ænˈtiːfə, ˈæntiˌfɑː/)[1] movement is a conglomeration of left-wing autonomous, militant anti-fascist[7] groups in the United States.[11] The principal feature of antifa groups is their use of direct action,[12] with conflicts occurring both online and in real life.[13] They engage in varied protest tactics, which include digital activism, property damage, physical violence, and harassment against those whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right.[18]

Activists involved in the movement tend to be anti-capitalists[19] and subscribe to a range of ideologies, typically on the left. They include anarchists, socialists and communists along with some liberals and social democrats.[25] Their stated focus is on fighting far-right and white supremacist ideologies directly, rather than through electoral means.[12]


Prog enough for you.

"They engage in varied protest tactics, which include digital activism, property damage, physical violence, and harassment against those whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right."

That's not progressive, that's being asshole, like the extreme right who do the same. I personally don't see ANTIFA as being progressive what so ever. They're a movement of extremists on the left who want to kick off at anything they don't like and would rather do so violently instead of through actual, proper means, like voting.


I still don't see how this means ANTIFA is progressive... but maybe I'm asking the wrong question.


What is YOUR idea of progressive, and why do you think ANTIFA fits that idea of it?

Progs are “left-wing”, “socialists”, “communists”, “social democrats”. All of these terms are in the wiki definition of antifa.

There are a lot of people who fall under those titles, who AREN'T ANTIFA.


You are broadbrushing them all under the umbrella name of something that's not even an organization, but a movement. Not all who are left wing, socialist, communist or social democrats fall under the ANTIFA umbrella. Many don't.



IMO, ANTIFA are actually more correctly labeled Anarchists than anything else, who take liberal/progressive ideas into the realm of violence which is NOT the way to go what so ever.



But if that's your idea of ANTIFA, then progs are ANTIFA I guess.


And you and other Republican types are actually Neo-Facists seeing as you and so many others are very alt-right nowadays.


Not, mind you, that I'd call everyone that myself, but if we go by your rules... all Progs, Democrats and so on are ANTIFA and all right wing, alt-right/extreme right types are neo-Fascist.


And if that's the breakdown, then yeah, there's nothing wrong with being ANTIFA.

Biden condemns violent Antifa assault on conservative journalist Andy Ngo

What is your definition of alt-right? Seems to be the same brush strokes in your above quote that you are accusing Walter of

If you read my response, you'd see that I DON'T consider all the right or even all the alt-right neo-fascists. I said if we went by Walter's rules, then alt-right are neo-fascists.


My definition of alt-right? Anarchists who want to change things with violence who have extreme right views like racial superiority, religious superiority and regressive ideologies like a 'woman's place' and are isolationists. Who believe conspiracy theories are more real than reality. Who would love to see their country become a dictatorship rather than democratic.



So I guess the same in general (being Anarchists), but just the extreme right (KKK, Alex Jones types, Evangelical Christians/Muslims/Jews).


That said, I also do NOT broad brush everyone who is right leaning into neo-fascists/alt-right. There are republican types/conservative types who aren't, and though some right leaning people might march and the neo-fascists might join their march, that doesn't make all of them neo-fascists.
